WAGNER, Richard 1813-1883
C.E. Meser (Hermann Müller) [PNs 275, 275.3, H.M. 275.7], Dresden 1860 - Folio. Full early dark green cloth with titling gilt to upper, spine in gilt-ruled compartments. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 3-274 pp. Title lithographed. Music engraved. Binding slightly worn, soiled, and bumped; partially split at hinges; front free endpaper slightly stained. Occasional light soiling, staining, and foxing; slight loss to lower outer margins of several leaves; pp. 83-85 frayed at lower margin and partially detached; occasional repairs. First Edition, later issue (without dedication, cast list, and table of contents). Deathridge, Geck & Voss p. 234 XVI. Cf. Klein pp. 18-19. Fuld p. 229. In three acts with text after Heinrich Heine's "Aus den Memoiren des Herren von Schnabelewopski, " Der fliegende Holländer was first performed in Dresden on January 2, 1843 at the Königlich Sächsisches Hoftheater. "The first work of Wagner's maturity, Der fliegende Holländer brings together several ingredients characteristic of the later works, notably the single-minded attention given to the mood and colour of the drama, and the themes of suffering by a Romantic outsider and of redemption by a faithful woman. The initial stages of a tendency towards dissolution of numbers and towards a synthesis of text and music also endorse Wagner's assertion that with the Holländer began his career as a true poet." Barry Millington in Grove Music Online. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

LASLETT, Thomas
Bosnia & Herzegovina: (1860). Bosnia and Herzegovina, 1860-1861. Unpublished manuscript fair journal of an expedition to Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1860, with a brief tour to Albania in January 1861, by Thomas Laslett, a leading timber purveyor for the Royal Navy's Admiralty, seeking a further supply of oak for building large frigates and wooden battleships. Penned in 1881 "in a readable form" after retiring from active service, and drawing from this original journal. 8vo. 179 pages in manuscript, plus 3 single page preface signed by the author. Volume measures 18 x 22 cm. Boards marked by other papers, otherwise volume in very good condition, internally bright, a fascinating account of the nineteenth century timber trade entering Turkey.This expedition was especially dangerous, taking place during the Herzegovina Uprising. Pressed for prolific supplies of timber for shipbuilding to maintain naval supremacy, and ultimately commercial advantage over competing nations, the Royal Navy dispatched their leading purveyor/inspector into an unsettled nation of civil turmoil - to Bosnia and Herzegovina during the Serbian insurrection which had been ongoing since 1852. With notable diplomatic contacts to assist and influence his mission, and surely with handsome recompense, Laslett agrees to undertake the task of locating, inspecting, and securing untapped sources of high quality timber, therefore venturing into the unsettled and remote wilds of the Balkan Peninsula, where thieves and anarchists thrived. The instability of the nation, coupled with the challenges of travelling where f … [Click Below for Full Description]

GIRARD, P. DE.
Paris, Imprimerie de Ch. Jouaust, (1860). 7 pieces in 1 volume. 2 pp.; 16 pp.; 24 pp.; 13, (1) pp.; 14 pp.; (4), 71, (1) pp.; 40 pp. 4to. Modern half morocco, marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt. Not in Siegelaub, Bibliographica Textilia historiae; Hoefer, vol. xx, cols. 668-678; Dictionnaire de Biographie Française, vol. 16, cols 168-170. Philippe de Girard invented the machine for spinning linen along principles still valid today. He was awarded a million francs by Napoléon and, in anticipation started three factories. But due to political circumstances and the fact that Napoléon did not keep his promise, his factories, very succesful from the start, faced soon ruin and de Girard was imprisoned. Ruined and betrayed by two collaborators, he accepted an invitation by the Austrian government. He again set up a factory and was again succesful. When de Girard was awarded the gold medal given by the Société d'encouragement pour l'Industrie nationale, he returned to France. Despite his brilliant discoveries (de Girard was the inventor of many more novelties) and the intervention on his behalf by journalists, politicians and intellectuals, the government refused to give him any financial help or reward. De Girard died in 1845 and his niece continued to find a way to get the money once awarded to de Girard. Also Charles Dupin appealed to the government, but all to no avail. - A few pieces have contemporary underlining and handwritten notes and comments in the margins, three texts have been bound with their original, printed covers, the last text has a handwritten dedication to … [Click Below for Full Description]

SEITZ, Adalbert.
Nissen, ZBI, II 3799 Nb. First edition of the French translation of an extensive and beautifully illustrated butterfly encyclopeadia, edited by the German entomologist Adalbert Seitz (1860-1938) who specialised in Lepidoptera. The encyclopeadia can be divided into 4 parts: butterflies of the Arctic, American, Indo-Australian and African regions. Its objective was to illustrate every butterfly and macro-moth in the world. Seitz was director of the Zoological Garden and departmental chief of the Senckenberg museum, both in Frankfurt. It was his intention to finish the whole encyclopeadia by 1912, which proved to be quite unrealistic, and the publication was stopped and delayed due to both the World Wars. Eventually the publication of the encyclopeadia was abandoned in 1954, leaving the encyclopeadia unfinshed behind.In very good condition and nearly complete, lacking some text leaves and plates, with some pencil notations and a few leaves detached from bookblock.

CALDESI, Leonida.
London, ca. 1860. Original photograph, carte de visite, albumen print, 10 x 6 cm. - P & D Colnaghi. - Colnaghi's impending retirement to Italy was postponed when his son Martin sued both his father and his brother Dominic (1790-1879) in 1824. The settlement of the lawsuit left Martin with the old shop. Martin became bankrupt in 1832 and 1843, and died in 1851, but his son (also Martin) continued the separate business in Pall Mall. Paul and Dominic Colnaghi moved to Pall Mall East - near the nascent National Gallery - and Paul Colnaghi continued to work in the business until he died in 1833. Caroline Scott's son, John Anthony Scott, joined Dominic Colnaghi in the business in 1839. Scott commissioned William Simpson to go to the Crimea in 1854 to make watercolour sketches of scenes from the Crimean War, published as a series of 81 lithographs in The Seat of War in the East. The gallery also sold photographs by Roger Fenton. After this early experience with photography, the gallery commissioned Leonida Caldesi and Mattia Montecchi to take photographs at the Art Treasures Exhibition in 1857, published in Gems of the Manchester Art Treasures Exhibition in 1858, and Colnaghi published artistic photographs by Julia Margaret Cameron from 1864. The firm was associated with John Constable, assisting him to exhibit The Hay Wain at the Paris Salon in 1824, where it won a gold medal. The art dealership organised exhibitions for the British Institution, and of paintings by Eugène Delacroix in 1829. After Scott died in 1864, and Dominic Colnaghi retired in 1865 and died in 1879, Scott's c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marx, Karl.
London, A. Petsch & Co., 1860. 8vo. VI, (2), 191, (1) pp. Contemporary half cloth with marbled boards and ms. spine label; upper cover of the original printed wrappers bound within. In custom-made slip case. First edition of Marx's longest polemical work, which he took the best part of a year away from the writing of "Das Kapital" to complete. Levelled at the polical writer and democrat of 1848, Karl Vogt (1817-95), the book is an answer to the slanders against himself, Engels and their supporters which had appeared in Vogt's 1859 pamphlet, "Mein Prozess gegen die Allgemeine Zeitung". A former member of the German pre-parliament, Vogt had become professor of geology in Geneva in 1852. When in June 1859 the "Augsburger Allgemeine Zeitung" circulated the rumour that he was a paid agent of Napoleon III, Vogt suspected, not without justification, that Marx's circle was behind the report. Vogt sued the paper for libel, and the suit was tried at the Augsburg district court on 24 October 1859. No proof of the accusation was produced, and the charge was ultimately dismissed on technical grounds. Vogt exploited his moral victory by publishing the shorthand report of the court proceedings, bolstered with copious documents, so as to expose the communists as traitors and conspirators. Although Marx was already weary of the affair, he picked up the gauntlet: in this rebuttal of nearly two hundred pages, he answered "Vogt line for line and charge for charge [.] Marx spares neither wit nor invective in demolishing his opponent" (R. A. Archer, in the preface to his 1982 English translation … [Click Below for Full Description]
