      1862. 8vo. Altogether 8 pp. Four letters to Mr. Foerster, one to his wife, and one letter of recommendation to the administration of Saalfeld Castle, concerning Foerster's search for antiques. - George II was well-known for his efforts in building the so-called Meiningen Court Theater and the Meiningen acting group. Together with his third wife, the actress and later Baroness of Heldburg, Ellen Franz (1839-1923), he laid the foundations for the early splendor of this renowned acting troupe.

        Pocket Diary for 1862. Containing a Blank Space for Every Day in the Year, Cash Account, Memoranda, &c.: 1862 Civil War Union Soldier and Musician Uriah Johnson's Manuscript Diary: Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps, 6th Regiment Band [with] Two Ambrotypes, Four CDVs, and One Glass Plate Photographic Negative

      Flexible leather binding with leather closure over fore-edge, cloth protective bands designed to cover top and bottom page ridges affixed to rear endpaper, all edges gilt. A diary bought in Camp Pierpont, Virginia in 1862 by Uriah Johnson, a member of the band for the sixth regiment of the Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps. He enlisted at the age of 17, on August 27th, 1861 and served for three years in several different companies until his final discharge on June 13th, 1865, at which time he was a 2nd lieutenant. He was present at the Siege of Richmond and other important engagements. Also included: two ambrotypes (one of the diaries; another of him and a relative, possibly his brother); cartes-de-visite of Abraham Lincoln, Uriah Johnson's grandfather (labeled in pencil on reverse), Mollie (labeled in pencil on front edge), and Uriah Johnson (this last mounted on a piece of cardstock); and a glass plate photographic negative. One ambrotype is housed in a wooden case with a clasp, the other is in one half of a similar case (the other half is not present).Manuscript diaries from the American Civil War are scarce, and each shines a unique light on the conflict. This example provides a charmingly innocent account of events, which underscores how young and inexperienced many of the soldiers fighting in the American Civil War were. There are also detailed accounts of day-to-day activities. The first passage displays the sort of optimism one would expect from a young man who volunteered: 'In Camp Pierpont Virginia. A beautiful day nice and warm. Camp very quiet more so than usual. Still considerable talk about the Battle of Drainsville is heard wherever we got that was the first Union victory on the Potomac, and the Boys all feel proud of it...' In the second week of January are five consecutive entries in which Johnson explains that soldiers are expecting their pay, which finally arrived on January 11, 1862: 'Received our pay $42.50 for two months service November and December.' He was quick to put it to use: 'Bought lumber to build winter quarters of a farmer paid him 2 cents a foot for boards' (Jan. 13). Other passages provide an immediacy not found in many accounts of the war: 'We are living without tents and expecting an attack every minute...' (March 11), and Johnson relays news as it is received by the camp: 'We have cheering news that Mannassas is evacuated and our forces now have possesion of the strongest Rebel hold'.One memoranda page provides a firsthand account of the Battle of Drainsville on December 20, 1862: 'The Battle of Drainsville was fought Dec the 20th 1862. Our loss was eight killed while that of the rebels is suposed as near as can be asertained one hundred. The number of the killed in our Regiment was three and fourteen wounded two severely the remaining slightly.' Diarist's name on front and rear endpapers, entries on daily diary pages, nearly all written in from January 1, 1862 to June 28, 1862, with notes on two other daily pages (seemingly chosen at random), a couple memoranda pages, and the 'summary of cash account' page, manuscript record of service (in the author's hand, so likely something he wrote for personal reference) laid in. A book curse is written on the front free endpaper: 'Steal not this book my honest friend for fear the gallows may be your end.' 'Published Annually for the Trade', 1862. Good/No Jacket.

        [SIX SKETCHES OF ROAD AND CAMP LIFE FOR A CIVIL WAR ARMY, DRAWN FOR HARPER'S WEEKLY]

      [Virginia, 1862. 6 pencil sketches, of which 2 with watercolor accents; varying sizes, from 3 1/4 x 6 to 8 x 10 1/4 inches. In plastic sleeves taped into paper mats. Old vertical fold lines, a few small chips at edges, minor dust soiling. Very good. A group of six pencil sketches, two with watercolor shadowing, drawn by an unnamed artist for HARPER'S WEEKLY. Two of the smaller images form the basis for engravings in the "On the Road from Washington to Alexandria" collage which appeared in the June 22, 1861, issue. The four larger drawings depict scenes of various Union army activities in Virginia during the early part of the war. All were submitted as potential accompaniments for articles in the periodical, which is justly known for the copious Civil War illustrations that supplemented its text. A full list is as follows: 1) Pencil sketch, 5 x 10 inches, of soldiers of on a country road, captioned: "On the March to Manassas. Union pickets approaching the deserted earthwork at Centerville Va.," with the reverse reading, "I send another package of sketches by same mail". 2) Pencil and watercolor sketch, 6 x 10 inches, of soldiers outside a barn and farmhouse, captioned "Near Falls Church. Picket Guard of Conn. 2nd". 3) Pencil sketch, 4 x 5 1/2 inches, of troops carrying shovels, captioned on verso: "Leaving the trenches. 'On the Road' & c. The men in every variety of costume some in under shirt & drawers & c." 4) Pencil sketch, 7 x 5 1/2 inches, of a field with fortifications and a large army camp in the background, captioned: "... com'd'd by Col. John Fuller. [vi]ew of the Enemy's old fortifications." 5) Pencil and watercolor sketch, 3 1/4 x 6 inches, of supply wagon and encampment, captioned on verso: "'On the road' Lager Bier Wagon". 6) Pencil sketch, 8 x 10 1/4 inches, of soldiers standing near recent construction of long wooden sheds, captioned on verso: "Stables being Erected for Cavalry"

        The Life And Adventures Of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner.

      London - Griffin, Bohn, And Company, 1862 Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. A beautifully illustrated Victorian edition of Robinson Crusoe, attractively presented in afull calf Zaehnsdorf binding. The first Robinson Crusoe storywas originally published anonymously in 1719as the memoir of its protagonist, leading many to believe that it was a true chronicle. It tells the story of a castaway who spends thirty years on a tropical island, encountering cannibals, mutineers, and other perils. The Robinson Crusoe stories taken as a whole are one of the most popular fictional works in Western literature. By the end of the nineteenth century no book had more editions, spin-offs, or translations. There are estimated to have been more than 700 alternative versions, including those for children. The plates of illustrations by Zwecker in this copy have been hand coloured. Condition: In a full calf Zaehnsdorf binding, with gilt borders and gilt detailing to the spine. Externally smart, with just a little marking to the boards. Internally, the first few pages are lightly spotted. Otherwise, however, clean and bright, and firmly bound. Overall: NEAR FINE.

      [Iuka, Ms, 1862. Pencil sketch, with ink caption, 5 1/4 x 9 inches. Matted. Old central vertical fold, with ink caption at foot of image and twelve-line description on verso. Near fine. A well-executed pencil sketch of Iuka, Ms., drawn after the capture of the town by Union troops under General William Rosecrans, which served as the basis for an engraving that appeared in the October 4, 1862, issue of HARPER's WEEKLY. A Union soldier rides across the foreground, with the Tennessee River and a rail bridge on the Memphis & Charlestown Railroad line behind him. In the center background are the building of the Iuka Springs House, the waters of which the verso caption claims "possess many medical qualities." The battle of Iuka took place on September 19, 1862, in which smaller elements from the southern forces of both sides sought to prevent one another from reinforcing larger armies to the north in Tennessee under the command of Generals Braxton Bragg and Don Carlos Buell.

        Flindersland and Sturtland; or, The Inside and Outside of Australia.

      London: R.

I) – [?]Henry Charles Sturt (1795-1866, 'Crichel' inkstamps on upper pastedowns of both vols; believed to be a kinsman of the soldier and Australian explorer Charles Sturt, 1795-1869).First edition, presumed first binding. A 'detailed description of the South Eastern part of Australia' (Ferguson), based on Jessop's travels in the late 1850s and early 1860s. 'In the twenty-fourth chapter of the second volume Jessop records in interesting and accurate detail an early expedition of one Ernest Giles whom the author met at Wilpena where Giles had stopped on his homeward trip from the north. This expedition [.] was from Adelaide to the north in search of new pastoral land. It does not appear to be elsewhere recorded and dates at least ten years before Giles's career became a matter of public record. Jessop supplies no precise date, but from the context it is clear that the expedition took place in the first half of 1859. [.] Constituting the first appearance in print of the last of the great Australian explorers, it is well worth adding to an exploration library' (Wantrup, pp. 266-267).Ferguson records a variant, possibly remainder, binding in blue cloth, without the kangaroo rat blocked in gilt on the upper boards, and, due to slow sales, the work was reissued in a number of forms over the following years.Ferguson 10 940.

        Motifs de décorations. Première série de cinquante planches en couleurs extraites de Journal-Manuel de Peintures.

      - Paris, A. Morel, 1862. Royal Folio (52.1 x 36.2 cm). Half-title and title page, 50 fine chromolithographed plates on thick paper. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine with five raised gilt-stippled and gilt-bordered bands, gilt title. Marbled endpapers.= A very rare and lavishly produced polychromatic work showing the extravagant interior designs which epitomize the eclectic period that bridged the gap between the rather straightforward Louis XIII to XVIII styles and neoclassicism, and the subsequent Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras. Elements of Egyptian, Roman and Islamic art are freely mixed with Biedermeier images and Rococo ornaments. It forms a truly unique display of the artistic taste of the period. However, this work is an example of the quality of French colour-printing as well: the quality of the colouring and the rendering of small details is superb. Little is known about the authors. They were peintres-décorateurs but here they show considerable skills in illustrating and printing. The periodical, "Journal-Manuel de Peintures", was published by Morel from 1853 onwards and continued for at least 20 years. Being of a rather ephemeral nature, few parts with text pages are on the market. As the title suggests, this work is probably the separately published album of the full-colour plates also published in this journal. Board edges a bit rubbed, some age toning and spotting to some plate margins, but nowhere obtrusive. We could only trace two copies in libraries worldwide. In all, a very good copy of this very rare work. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Victorian Photo Album Leaves (18 in all)

      1862 - I found this collection of photographs a number of years ago, mostly for the way that some of the decorated panels were not outfitted with photographs. The photographs were made in the early 1860s (one is dated 1862) and all of the embellishments and decorations I take it were made by hand at the same time. Early photo albums are not common. Each sheet measures about 16"x 16". Good condition. Set of 18 images, all ca. early 1860's so far as I can tell.

        Pocket Diary for 1862. Containing a Blank Space for Every Day in the Year, Cash Account, Memoranda, &c.: 1862 Civil War Union Soldier and Musician Uriah Johnson's Manuscript Diary: Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps, 6th Regiment Band [with] Two Ambrotypes, Four CDVs, and One Glass Plate Photographic Negative

      Flexible leather binding with leather closure over fore-edge, cloth protective bands designed to cover top and bottom page ridges affixed to rear endpaper, all edges gilt. A diary bought in Camp Pierpont, Virginia in 1862 by Uriah Johnson, a member of the band for the sixth regiment of the Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps. He enlisted at the age of 17, on August 27th, 1861 and served for three years in several different companies until his final discharge on June 13th, 1865, at which time he was a 2nd lieutenant. He was present at the Siege of Richmond and other important engagements. Also included: two ambrotypes (one of the diaries; another of him and a relative, possibly his brother); cartes-de-visite of Abraham Lincoln, Uriah Johnson's grandfather (labeled in pencil on reverse), Mollie (labeled in pencil on front edge), and Uriah Johnson (this last mounted on a piece of cardstock); and a glass plate photographic negative. One ambrotype is housed in a wooden case with a clasp, the other is in one half of a similar case (the other half is not present).Manuscript diaries from the American Civil War are scarce, and each shines a unique light on the conflict. This example provides a charmingly innocent account of events, which underscores how young and inexperienced many of the soldiers fighting in the American Civil War were. There are also detailed accounts of day-to-day activities. The first passage displays the sort of optimism one would expect from a young man who volunteered: 'In Camp Pierpont Virginia. A beautiful day nice and warm. Camp very quiet more so than usual. Still considerable talk about the Battle of Drainsville is heard wherever we got that was the first Union victory on the Potomac, and the Boys all feel proud of it...' In the second week of January are five consecutive entries in which Johnson explains that soldiers are expecting their pay, which finally arrived on January 11, 1862: 'Received our pay $42.50 for two months service November and December.' He was quick to put it to use: 'Bought lumber to build winter quarters of a farmer paid him 2 cents a foot for boards' (Jan. 13). Other passages provide an immediacy not found in many accounts of the war: 'We are living without tents and expecting an attack every minute...' (March 11), and Johnson relays news as it is received by the camp: 'We have cheering news that Mannassas is evacuated and our forces now have possesion of the strongest Rebel hold'.One memoranda page provides a firsthand account of the Battle of Drainsville on December 20, 1862: 'The Battle of Drainsville was fought Dec the 20th 1862. Our loss was eight killed while that of the rebels is suposed as near as can be asertained one hundred. The number of the killed in our Regiment was three and fourteen wounded two severely the remaining slightly.' Diarist's name on front and rear endpapers, entries on daily diary pages, nearly all written in from January 1, 1862 to June 28, 1862, with notes on two other daily pages (seemingly chosen at random), a couple memoranda pages, and the 'summary of cash account' page, manuscript record of service (in the author's hand, so likely something he wrote for personal reference) laid in. A book curse is written on the front free endpaper: 'Steal not this book my honest friend for fear the gallows may be your end.' 'Published Annually for the Trade', 1862. Good/No Jacket.

        Trigonometrical Survey of a part of Mesopotamia. From Hillah to the Ruins of Niffer with the rivers Euphrates and Tigris. London, J. & C. Walker, 1862.

      1862. 101 x 71 cm. Constant ratio linear horizontal scale, ca. 1:150,000. Signed by Collingwood. Impressive, early, large-scale map of central Iraq, showing the area between Al Hillah (100 km south of Baghdad) to the ruins of the ancient Sumerian city of Nippur. Indicates sand hills, canals, old river beds, tracks, cultivated areas. Includes inset plans and views of Tel Ibrahim, Zibbleyeh, Nejmi, Niffer, and the Niffer Mounds. - Some paper defects and edge damage restored. Rare; copies are known in no more than two public collections (Bodleian; British Library). Personal copy of the cartographer William Collingwood, signed by himself as well as by Cdr. W. B. Selby, R.I.N. - Selby began his distinguished surveying career in 1837 when, as a midshipman, he embarked on the expedition first to lay navigation buoys in the mouths of the Indus River and then to chart some coastal areas in the Horn of Africa. By 1846 he was back working off the mouth of the Indus, having made his reputation in Mesopotamia (in 1840-41), and thereafter achieved considerable acclaim for his numerous other surveys, including those during the military expedition to Persia in 1856, before returning to England at the end of 1862. He was succeeded as Surveyor of Mesopotamia by his protégé, Lt. William Collingwood (a distant cousin of the Admiral), who had already done much valuable work in the region, including the large-scale, though surreptitious, mapping of Baghdad in 1855, described by him as follows: "The survey of the city of Baghdad was completed entirely by myself and under very unpleasant restrictions [...] The Turkish Government were not to know anything about it [...] and I was left to survey the town as best I could, and under such difficulties that at times I had to note bearings and paces all over my white shirt, where best I could get the pencil at the time [...]". During this same expedition, Collingwood also surveyed the Shatt-ul-Arab, the city of Bussorah (also by stealth) and much of the country between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, and he was undoubtedly one of the most gifted and productive R.I.N. surveyors of his day.

        Victorian Seaweed Album

      New York: J.C. Riker, 1862. Victorian album showcasing over twenty preserved and pressed seaweed and algae specimens. The collection and classification of botanical samples was considered an edifying pursuit for women in the Victorian era, and the study of natural history served as an acceptable access point for women interested in scientific subjects. Seaweed specimens were particularly popular, creating a lively market for instructional books like Shirley Hibberd's The Seaweed Collector (1872). The album also contains a laid-in sheet of botanical samples bearing four notable personal annotations. The first specimen is captioned: "Taken from Aunt Lucy Lee's grave in Ridgefield Oct 3d 1859." Two others, collected on the same date, are identified as growing on the graves of "Uncle Aaron Lee" and "Charles Bradley Lee," while the final specimen is captioned: "Taken from my sister's grave, the same date Jane E Smith who died at the early age of two years." Genealogical records indicate that a Lucy Smith in Ridgefield, CT, married one Aaron Lee, a captain in the Revolutionary War. A compelling artifact of Victorian popular science and filial piety. Scrapbook album measuring 6 x 7.5 inches, contemporary full red sheep, elaborate gilt urn motif stamped in center of boards, triple-ruled border and elaborate cornerpieces in blind, spine ornamented in gilt floral pattern, all edges gilt, renewed endpapers. Green pictorial printed title page with hand-colored embossed flower, four pages embossed with images of flowers (one hand-colored), 15 specimens of seaweed and algae on tipped-in cards, eight additional seaweed specimens lying loose between pages, two samples of pressed flowers tipped in, six pressed leaves laid in, some evidence of lost samples. Two instances of penciled-in poems partially erased, pen and blue pencil ribbon sketch. Laid in is a single page featuring four annotated botanical samples from family gravesites, each hand-sewn onto the paper. Offsetting caused by specimens, rectangular portion of one leaf excised, expert restoration to binding.

Alcune firme di possesso del tempo. Una dedica in data 1922 all'occhietto del quarto vol. Restauri alla cuffia inferiore del primo vol. Qualche fioritura normale. Bell'esemplare. Edizione profusamente illustrata (rara a reperirsi completa, come nel nostro esemplare, di tutte le sue tavole) della classica traduzione dei testi biblici del Martini, fittamente annotata dallo stesso. Il testo è disposto su due colonne e, accanto al volgarizzamento martiniano, figura il testo biblico della Vulgata. Il Martini (Prato, 1720-Firenze, 1809), formatosi al Collegio Cicognini della sua città natale (lo stesso in cui studierà, oltre un secolo dopo, D'Annunzio), laureato in lettere a Pisa, preside della congregazione della basilica torinese di Superga su designazione di Carlo Emanuele III, abate di San Giacomo in Bessa, impresse la sua celebre traduzione della Bibbia su incarico del Cardinal Vittorio Amedeo delle Lanze, amico di Benedetto XIV, e la completò nel 1771, sotto il pontificato di Pio VI, che lo premiò, dieci anni dopo, con la nomina ad Arcivescovo di Firenze. Compose anche numerose opere pastorali. La versione martiniana fu condotta sulla base del testo greco dei Settanta; per i raffronti con le lingue semitiche originarie egli si valse della consulenza del rabbino di Firenze, Levi. Cfr. V. Guasti, Storia anedottica dei volgarizzamenti dei due Testamenti fatto dall'abate A.M. in Rassegna Nazionale, XXV, 1885, pp. 235-282. Plurilingue

Édition originale du premier livre de Léon Cladel et de la préface de douze pages très denses de Charles Baudelaire. Exemplaire enrichi du contrat de publication à compte d'auteur des Martyrs Ridicules, daté du 5 juin 1861, monté sur onglet. Ce document manuscrit, rédigé à l'encre par Poulet Malassis, signé par Léon Cladel et Poulet Malassis et de Broise, détaille le prix payé par l'auteur (500 francs réglables en deux fois), le tirage (500 exemplaires, dont 250 ex. remis brochés à l'auteur) et l'engagement pris par Cladel de régler les frais de livraison de ses exemplaires et les corrections d'auteur auxquelles son ouvrage aurait donné lieu sur présentation d'épreuves. Ex-libris d'Alfred Morin, gravé à l'eau-forte par Vallon. Bel exemplaire, pâle mouillure sur la couverture. Selon le témoignage de l'auteur, rapporté par sa fille Judith Cladel, Baudelaire aida à mettre en forme le roman, qui manquait de style et de syntaxe : "Huit mois durant, il daigna me pétrir de ses mains savantes et me rendre ductile et modéré, mois si dur de pâte et si violemment excessif..." (Maître & Disciple, Paris, 1951, cité par G. Oberlé dans Auguste Poulet-Malassis un imprimeur sur le Parnasse, 1996).

Expertly rebacked with orig. spine laid down. See my other unrestored copy. Freeman 800. Asa Gray is quoted in the Life and Letters of Charles Darwin as saying, "if the orchid-book (with a few trifling omissions) had appeared before the 'Origin' the author would have been canonised rather than anathematised by the natural theologians," and notes that a review in the Literary Churchman found only one fault "that Mr. Darwin's expression of admiration at the contrivances in orchids is too indirect a way of saying, 'O Lord, how mainifold are Thy works.'" This work is concerend with figuring detailing the relationships between sexual structures of orchids and the insects which fertilize them, and attributes their evolution to natural selection. First edition. Cover faded to brown. Rather than describe the condition in detail here, please ask for a full set of photos. We are selling an entire first and early edition collection of Darwin and other Victorian naturalist.

Ich hatte den mir eng befreundeten Verleger, der vom (reichhonorirten) Cicerone her noch nicht auf seinen Kosten ist, umsonst gewarnt, nicht über 500 drucken zu lassen; er hat 750 gedruckt u. behält nun das Surplus in Ballen im Magazin. Auf diese Erfahrung hin habe ich mich entschlossen, von der 'Kunst der Renaissance' nur ein Geripp auszuarbeiten, etwa 20 Bogen, und bei diesem Anlaß nur diejenigen Resultate mitzutheilen, die mir neu scheinen [...]" (5. I. 1862). - "[...] Gestern erhielt ich [...] die 'Beiträge zum Cicerone'. Das Vorwort, worin Sie meiner Arbeit (viel zu sehr im Guten) gedenken, haben [!] mich gerührt u. beschämt, und als ich mich nun in das Heft hineinlas und der enormen von mir einst in Verwegenheit geschossenen Böcke inne wurde, fand ich es für eine wahre Pflicht, mich darob gegen Sie bestmöglich zu entschuldigen. Der Cicerone wurde nämlich unternommen nicht nur von einer äußerst ungenügenden ästhetischen Basis aus, sondern auch unter sehr zweifelhaften Umständen und mit geringen Mitteln, in einem Augenblick da ich meine hiesige Anstellung verloren hatte und nicht recht wußte, was aus mir werden sollte. Er hat mir dann allerdings treulich geholfen und mir die Professur am eidg. Politechnicum zu Zürich eingetragen, sodaß ich ihm immer ein ehrendes Andenken schuldig bin [...]". - Der Br. v. 5. I. 1862 mit einem kleinen Ausschnitt auf Bl. 2 (Textverlust in drei Zeilen).

        Deux lettres autographes signées à Théodore Wyzema au sujet de ses derniers ouvrages

      1 page, 180 x 102 mm et 4 pages, 200 x 155 mm. RARES LETTRES AUTOGRAPHES adressées au critique d'art d'origine polonaise, pro- moteur du mouvement symboliste Teodor de Wyzewa (1862-1917). Ecrites durant l'été 1887, elles précèdent de quelques semaines le décès du poète. Laforgue, sans argent, tente de faire éditer son dernier ouvrage en prose : Berlin. Il rencontre Gustave de Malherbe, directeur des éditions Quantin grâce aux recomman- dations de Théodore Wyzema. "Mercredi, Mon bien cher ami, J'ai été ce matin chez Quantin. De Malherbe m'a reçu on ne peut plus aimablement. (Je vous dois encore cela). Il me donnera une réponse lundi. Figurez-vous que je n'ai rien reçu de Dujardin. Je n'y comprends rien. Il n'imagine pas les attentes de... Votre ami Jules Laforgue". "Vendredi, Mon cher ami,Vraiment vous m'avez donné le devoir de vous adresser de pareilles lettres. C'est sur votre recommandation que De Malheurve m'a dit à ma remise de mon manuscrit : " Le livre ne paraîtra qu'en octobre. Mais matériellement pour vous se sera comme si il paraissait aujourd'hui". Là-dessus, il m'a renvoyé à lundi. Le lundi il était content mais il fallait voir Mr May, et il m'a renvoyé à mercredi ; mercredi, je reçois une lettre me ren- voyant à aujourd'hui (une lettre) et aujourd'hui je n'ai rien reçu. Et aujourd'hui me tombe sur la tête tout ce qui nous tombe sur la tête un quinze de trimestre. Voici ce que je voulais vous dire. Il m'est impossible de désespérer de mon livre chez Quantin après les promesses de De Malherbe, j'aurai de l'argent de ce côté-là. Or vous avez en Rzewsky une relation facile à la détente. Eh bien ce n'est pas un emprunt que je voudrais faire auprès de lui mais un emprunt qui serait effacé dès que j'aurais touché chez De Malherbes, ou - en cas de malheur - j'espérais chez Lemerre. (Ce serait 380 à peu près dont j'aurais besoin) (...) Au revoir mon véritable et rare ami. Il y a des mois que songeant, impotent, ce que je pourrais faire pour vous et je n'ai encore trouvé que cette chose palote que je n'ai jamais depuis le temps pensé à vous dire : Vous dédier les nouvelles que Dujardin éditera. Cette proposition aboutit à une absence de paquet. Au revoir votre Jules Laforgue." TRES BEL ENSEMBLE.

        La légende du juif errant.

      Paris MAGASIN PITTORESQUE 1862 1Compositions et dessins par Gustave DORE. Gravés sur bois par Rouget, Jahyer et Gauchard. Imprimés par J. Best. Poème avec prologue et épilogue par Pierre Dupont. Préface et notice bibliographique par Paul Lacroix (Bibliophile Jacob). Avec la Ballade de Béranger mise en musique par Ernest Doré. 2e édition. Paris, Librairie du Magasin Pittoresque, 1862, in-folio, demi-maroquin rouge à coins, dos à 5 nerfs, couverture conservée, gardes de papier marbré, reliure postérieure, (Alix Relieur). "Les grandes compositions de Gustave DORE, forment une suite saisissante, fantastique et sinistre, où le dessinateur, entièrement dominé par son sujet, évoque la vision d'un monde étrange, chaotique et sombre, au milieu duquel le Juif Errant marche sans cesse, n'offrant aucune prise ni aux éléments ni à la mort. On ne saurait trop louer la maîtrise développée ici par les 3 graveurs, Rouget, Jahyer et Gauchard, habiles et heureux interprètes de DORE, dont ils ont éxécuté, sur bois, les dessins avec une vigueur de tons qu'il est difficile de surpasser..." (Leblanc, oeuvre de Gustave Doré, 1931, p. 317). Usures, déchirures, manques et restaurations à la couverture.
