      [Boston, 1864. Broadside, 14 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches. One very small patch of dampstaining, several faint marks from formerly glued areas. Near fine. An eerie handbill advertising John Wilkes Booth in the leading role of Shakespeare's "Richard III," to be performed at the Exhibition Hall of the Boston Museum, April 25, 1864, just under a year before he would assassinate Abraham Lincoln. The character of the Duke of Gloucester was in fact one Booth's most well-known and well-regarded parts, and he performed it numerous times across the country to great acclaim, beginning when he first appeared in the title role in Montgomery, Alabama, on Dec. 1, 1860. The role was also one that helped to make both his father Junius and his brother Edwin famous. This handbill advertises what must have been one of Booth's last performances of Richard III, since he did not perform the part again after 1864. The broadside also promotes an orchestral performance and a one-act farce entitled, "Hit Him, He Has No Friends," to precede the main entertainment. A fascinating piece of ephemera publicizing Booth's portrayal of one of Shakespeare's most treacherous characters, who famously declares in his opening soliloquy, "I am determined to prove a villain."

        Ancient Syriac documents relative to the earliest establishment of Christianity in Edessa and the neighbouring countries from the year after our Lord's ascension to the beginning of the fourth century. London, Williams and Norgate, 1864.

      1864. Folio (232 x 295 mm). (2), XIV, 196, 112 pp. Contemp. blindstamped cloth with giltstamped title to spine. First edition. - In 1837, Cureton (1808-64), assistant keeper of manuscripts in the British Museum and the only oriental scholar in the department, was commissioned to prepare a catalogue of the Arabic manuscripts, the first part of which appeared in 1846. "But a new study had already engaged Cureton's attention. During his official occupation at the British Museum immense additions had been made to the collection of Syriac manuscripts. When he entered the department these numbered about eighty; but the accession of numerous manuscripts of the highest importance from the Nitrian monasteries, which were purchased and brought over partly by the mediation of Dr. Tattam in 1841 and 1843, raised the total to nearly six hundred. Cureton, who knew nothing of Syriac when he came to the department, set himself zealously to work to conquer the not very serious difficulties of the language, and to set in order and classify the new acquisitions from the Nitrian valley. His labours while drawing up an outline catalogue were amply rewarded by the discovery of many manuscripts of the highest interest" (DNB). The present work was published, after his death following a railway accident, by William Wright (1830-89). - Occasional slight foxing; on the whole an excellent, unusually wide-margined copy.

"Gang- und gäbe Phrasen unseres constitutionellen Zeitalters. || Das Princip - ist die Theorie, die Moral, das Sollen - die Tugend | Praxis, Op[p]ortunität, führen zum fait accomplit. | Führen gar oft zur Sünde, zum Unglück, zu grausem Verbrechen, | Doch des Frommen Sinn sieht nur das Gute darin. | Wenn das Meer im Frieden dahinwallt, glaubst du, der Sturm wars | Welcher die Flotte verschlang, der nun den Frieden gebracht? | Doch ists wahr: die Menschheit erhebt sich stets jung aus dem Tode, | Und wer das Leben gewann freut sich des goldenen Lichts [...]". Purkinje is known for his discovery of Purkinje fibres, the fibrous tissue that conducts electrical impulses to all parts of the ventricles of the heart. Other discoveries include Purkinje images, reflections of objects from structures of the eye, and the Purkinje shift, the change in the brightness of red and blue colours as light intensity decreases gradually at dusk. Purkyne also introduced the scientific terms "plasma" and "protoplasm". During the last years of his life (from which thre present quotation dates), Purkinje "repeatedly stressed the importance of science and knowledge in practical life. His work [...] was of great importance in the Czech national revival and exerted a lasting effect on the subsequent development of science in his country" (DSB XI, 217).

        Autograph letter signed. Starnberg, 25. VI. 1864.

      1864. Large 8vo. 5 pp. on 3 ff. Includes autogr. envelope with embossed sender's monogram and initials on verso. Long, important letter to Josephine Maier, mother of Wagner's close friend Mathilde Maier. As a matter of form, Wagner's oft-quoted request that Mathilde move in with him as his companion is directed to her mother: "My dear and esteemed friend! Only to someone to whom I already owe so much love and true dedication as I do to you may I dare submit a question and indeed a request as I must today. I must now decide how to go about keeping my home tolerable in such a fashion that the fine external security now achieved also serves my inner prosperity. As you know, I live in separation from my wife: my desire to transfer my household to a female being has recently become so strong in me once more that I seriously considered whether it might not be better to call back my wife rather than live alone. Only the conviction, gained from long experience and confirmed by the observations of all my friends and relations, that a reunion must needs bring about for the both of us a condition much less bearable than separation, has utterly disabused me of this plan [...]" (transl.). - While this remarkable letter is addressed to Josephine Maier, Wagner sent it directly to Mathilde Maier, who read it without passing it on to her mother. She rejected Wagner's offer, but remained his friend for the rest of his life. Published in M. Dürrer (ed.), Richard Wagner. Sämtliche Briefe, vol. 16. Briefe des Jahres 1864, Wiesbaden/Leipzig/Paris 2006, no. 204, p. 245ff., commentary p. 599 with references to earlier editions.

        Autograph letter signed. Munich, 5. IX. 1864.

      1864. 8vo. 1½ pp. on double leaf. To court president Pierret, a fellow autograph collector, by sending him some autographs: "Vous n'êtes pas seulement celui des employés dans le departement da la Justice qui a la plus grande gaiété, mais Vous êtes aussi le plus aimable dont Votre lettre du 30 Août donne une nouvelle preuve. Je presume que Vous ne posedez pas encore l'autographe du nouveau Roi de Wurtemberg, c'est pourquoi je Vous envoye l'anonce de son avenement sur le tronê. Parmi ceux que je Vous ai adresseé se trouve une lettre de Chelard, français, qui compose une des operas les plus distingués de nos jours. Macbeth - laquelle ne me parait pas apreciée en France comme elle le merite [...]". - Chelard's 1827 opera "Macbeth" was a flop in Paris then, but a great success in Munich, and brought Chelard the title of a Bavarian court conductor. - The blank reverse of fol. 2 somewhat spotty.

The two volumes offered here (of the three volume set) contain the principal treatises, the third volume (issued later, and not present here) was an addendum containing more minor works. The first volume contains a Preface examining the availability and influence of Greek and Latin medical texts in Anglo-Saxon times. It reproduces an Anglo-Saxon version of the Herbarium of Apuleius, followed by an Old English version of the "Medicina de Quadrupedibus" of Sextus Placitus and a series of short medical texts (called "Leechdoms"), most of which were gathered from the fly leaves of old manuscripts. This is followed by a series of charms on diverse subjects. The Second Volume contains a Preface which examines aspects of life in mediaeval Britain and sets the context for the "Leech Book" that follows. This text - known as "The Leechbook of Bald" is a treatise on folk medicine in three parts, and is taken from a tenth century manuscript which was once the property of Glastonbury Abbey. The book includes a Glossary and Index of Proper Names.

Reliure non signée mais probablement de l'éditeur. 4 feuillets blancs précèdent le faux-titre et le texte est suivi de 13 feuillets blancs. Bon état extérieur (coiffes et coins un peu frottés) et bon état intérieur (papier uniformément un peu bruni). L'édition date de 1864 mais le dernier feuillet, non paginé et probablement ajouté en cours d'impression car disposé après le colophon, reprend un texte daté de juin 1865. Les « Caledonian Press » d'Edimbourg sont un exemple important du travail des femmes dans l'industrie du livre, sous le patronage de la duchesse de Kent et grâce, entre autres, au support financier de Mary Anne Thomson. A l'instar des « Victoria Press », les « Caledonian Press » publièrent un périodique : le « Rose, Shamrock and thistle ». Il n'est donc pas anodin que cette publication soit celle des statuts d'un ordre de chevalerie ouvert aux deux sexes. Le catalogue de la British Library je recense que 2 exemplaires, l'un de l'édition de 1827 (Londres) et l'autre de 1840 (Edimbourg) mais celle-ci semble absente. Le Worldcat n'indique pas davantage cette édition et les recherches menées, probablement à compléter, n'ont donné qu'une occurrence : le Royal Collection Trust. Beau volume, probablement fort rare.

(1) Apologia pro vita sua: Being a reply to a pamphlet entitled “What, then, does Dr. Newman mean?” 8 parts. 430, 127, iv pp. London: Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts and Green, 1864. 221 x 140 mm. Original printed wrappers, a little worn and chipped, wrappers on parts 1 and 5 detached but present, wrappers on last part browned. Very good set. (2) Mr. Kingsley and Dr. Newman: A correspondence on the question whether Dr. Newman teaches that truth is no virtue? 34pp. London: Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts and Green, 1864. 212 x 142 mm. Original printed wrappers, back wrapper lacking, spine repaired with gummed paper. Light spotting but very good. Together 2 items. Owne First Edition, Rare in Original Parts, of the Apologia; First Edition of the Correspondence. Newman, one of the key figures in the religious history of 19th-century England, was a leader of the Oxford Movement, a group of Anglican clergymen who objected to what they saw as the Church of England’s increasing theological liberalism and argued for the restoration of many pre-Reformation Christian beliefs and liturgical practices. In 1845, after a period of soul-searching, Newman left the Church of England and was received into the Roman Catholic Church; after being ordained as a priest, he continued to exert influence through his sermons, lectures and writings. He was created a cardinal by Pope Leo XIII in 1879. In January 1864 the Rev. Charles Kingsley, an anti-Catholic, published a review of Froude’s History of England in Macmillan’s Magazine in which he accused Newman of advocating for deceit and untruthfulness in the Roman Catholic clergy. After an exchange of letters, collected and published in Mr. Kingsley and Dr. Newman (no. [2] above), Newman issued his landmark Apologia pro vita sua, a spiritual autobiography and defense of Catholicism against Kingsley’s criticisms. “From [this] time on his integrity was wholly vindicated, and his position both as a human being and as a member of the Roman Catholic Church became a great deal easier” (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 190). We are offering the Apologia in the original eight parts, issued between April and June 1864; a revised book-form edition appeared in 1865.

        Mount Sinai and the Holy Land, in 1864. [Together with] My Wanderings. Being Travels in the East in 1846-47, 1850-51, 1852-53. [And with] Three small glass phials of granite sand, small shells and sand collected by J. Gadsby in 1864 from Mount Sinai, the Red Sea and the Great Desert respectively.

      First work: Second ed. sixth thousand. 12mo. pp. 112, [4, ads.]; 4 wood-engs., one sketch map; slightly shaken in the original cloth, gilt, a little worn to extremities. Second work: 20th thousand. 8vo. pp. 594, [30, indexes]; wood-engs. to text, one folding map; previous owner's inscriptions and illusts. to flyleaf, very shaken in contemporary half calf, gilt, worn to head of spine. Phials: glass, each approx. 1.5" (4cm.) in height and .75" (2cm.) in diameter, cork stoppers, labelled "Granite Sand from Mount Sinai. Brought by Mr John Gadsby, 1864", "Small Shells from the Red Sea. Brought by Mr John Gadsby, 1864", and "Sand from the Great Desert (Deut. viii.15). Brought by Mr John Gadsby, 1864", each label inialled by Gadsby, labels browned and one chipped, chip to glass lip of first two phials.John Gadsby (1808-1893) was a printer, publisher, editor, author and traveller. In 1835 he began production of the Gospel Standard Magazine, a Strict Baptist journal first edited by John's father, the Baptist minister William Gadsby of Manchester. John himself shared his father's religious sentiments, and when ill-health required him to travel to warmer climes he chose Egypt and the Holy Land as his destinations. Gadsby visited the regions several times in the 1840s-1860s, publishing two volumes of his Travels in the East (each volume complete in itself; the volume offered here states on its title-page "This Volume is complete in itself, but a SECOND VOLUME has been published, containing the Author's Travels in the East in 1855-56, 1859-60"). My Wanderings couples descriptions of his travels with Biblical references and discussion. In 1864 he visited Mount Sinai, and the small volume he wrote and published recording his trip follows a similar format, with occasional geological observations ("The mountain [Sinai] is formed principally of red granite, which is fast crumbling into sand" p. 31). During this visit, Gadsby collected leaves, shells, sand, and water from such locations as Mount Sinai, the Mount of Olives, the Red Sea, the Nile, and the Temple of Abu Simbel. Back in England, he had these souvenirs bottled, and advertised them for sale on the wrappers of his Gospel Standard Magazine, price sixpence, and each authenticated by Gadsby's initials on the label (see The History of the Gospel Standard Magazine 1835-1985, ed. B. A. Ramsbottom, p. 26). The present three examples are scarce survivals of Gadsby's 1864 visit to Mount Sinai.
