In the context of French opera of the late 19th century Thomas was a figure of considerable importance, an imaginative innovator and a master of musical characterization."

        Insieme di due interessanti lettere autografe firmate circa le attività del comitato marchigiano dirette all'Avvocato Giuseppe Leti del poeta, drammaturgo e politico italiano, arruolatosi nella spedizione Medici, che partà di rincalzo ai Mille, battendosi a Milazzo e al Volturno (1860); più tardi partecipò alla guerra del 1866, sempre nelle schiere garibaldine. La serie clamorosa delle polemiche e dei duelli, cui era costretto dalla veemenza delle sue critiche, si concluse tragicamente nel duello con F. Macola, direttore della Gazzetta di Venezia. A. Nella lettera datata Piacenza 22 ott. 92 fa riferimento allo scultore romano Ettore Massoni (1845 - 1929) che nel 1904 sarebbe divenuto Gran Maestro, imprimendo al Grande Oriente d'Italia un più netto orientamento di carattere radicale e anticlericale. "Per quanto riguarda il Comitato centrale Ella si indirizzi pure liberamente a mio nome all'amico Ettore Ferrari, e se egli fosse assente...parli direttamente con Giulio Norsa segretario del Comitato e gli dia per me tutte le informazioni che crede del caso". Tre pagine in - 8. B. Dagnente 29 ott. 92. Circa le lezioni del Comitato marchigiano afferma "L'astensione per qual si voglia motivo, non ha nelle presenti circostanze giustificazione: si tratta ora di numero di voti contro un nemico formidabile ed ogni voto sottratto alla democrazia rappresenta un dovere mancato".

        A Collection of Memorial Cards

      Various. Various: Various c. 100 memorial cards, including three framed and glazed, dated mainly between 1860 and 1910. Designs include several embossed 'pierced lace' designs, through to later printed and chromolithographic cards. Included amongst many others is a remembrance card for Prince Albert (1861), a funeral ticket for the Duchess of Norfolk (1877) and an attractive folding card in its original black bordered envelope (1907). "The memorial card relied for much of its appeal on the austere extravagance of blind embossing. The process produced an uncoloured relief image of some delicacy ... exploited here for its portrayal of sepultural and monumental images. Tombs, funerary urns, angels and mourning figures appeared as though in marble low-relief ... Embossed cards were also available as pierced 'lace' designs, the low-relief effect being enhanced by removal of the background ... In a further elaboration, cards might be mounted on larger 'frame' cards. These were similarly treated with low-relief and lace effect and were designed to be mounted on a black background for glazing and framing ... In the final decades of the 19th century and on into the 20th century the most common form of mourning card was chromolithographed (usually in a range of grey or sepia colours and with a black border) for overprinting by the local printer" (Rickards - The Encyclopedia of Ephemera, page 157). First Edition. Disbound. Very Good. Memorial Card.

        The Conduct of Life

In a custom quarter-morocco clamshell box. An exceptional presentation copy; inscribed by the author on the half-title, ?F.B. Sanborn - From the Author. Nov. 7 1860.? Of the copies noted by the Bibliography of American Literature, none was inscribed earlier than mid-December, 1860, and most were presented in January, 1861. As a young man, the New Hampshire born Sanborn sought out the famous Emerson, and while at Harvard became a schoolmaster in Concord, teaching young Emersons, Alcotts, Hawthornes, and others. He was a fervent abolitionist and a key supporter of John Brown (one of ?The Secret Six?), who never lost his devotion to Brown, his family, and their cause. This book was inscribed the day after Lincoln?s election. Sanborn lived to 1917, the last survivor of Concord?s golden age, having enjoyed a successful career as an educator, reformer and literary man.
