A doctor by training, he soon went into government service, and by 1829 had joined the Imperial Academy of Sciences, on behalf of whom he travelled extensively to both Britain and America.

        Autograph letter signed "L. Ds."

      "Outside the theatre (for which Delibes wrote nearly all his music) his most notable work was as a composer of choruses, now undeservedly neglected. His output of songs was relatively small and that of instrumental and church music almost negligible. His cantata Alger (1865) attracted much attention at the time but has lain in obscurity since. Despite his poor record at the Conservatoire his workmanship was of the highest order; he had a natural gift for harmonic dexterity and a sure sense of orchestral colour, and nothing in his music is out of place. He was a disciplined composer, and it is tempting to see in the exquisite pastiche dances that he composed in 1882 for Hugo's Le roi s'amuse not just a sharp ear for style but a genuine feeling for the world of 17th-century French classicism, later to be espoused with such ardour by Saint-Saëns, d'Indy and Debussy." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online.. 3 pp. of a bifolium. Small octavo. Dated "Thursday morning." In French (with translation). Delibes would like to see his friend to discuss some issue of importance. He also mentions several prominent musical figures in Paris: the baritone Jacques Bouhy; Philippe Gille, the co-librettist of Delibes's opera, Lakmé; Halanzier, a director at the Paris Opera; and Léon Carvalho, director of the Opéra-Comique. "In spite of everything, Carvalho wants all the same to go ahead and at full steam... When one speaks to him of waiting... he jumps to the ceiling and does not accept any hesitation. This is very embarrassing." Slightly worn and creased.

        Atlas der Naturgeschichte für Schule und Haus. Mit sechzig Tafeln colorirter Abbildungen und erläuterndem Texte. Zweite umgearbeitete und vermehrte Auflage.

      Leipzig, Wilhelm Baensch, 1865.. Quart. Zeitgenössisches, goldgeprägtes Halbleinen. XV (+I), 246 S., mit 60 handkolorierten Kupfertafeln. Einbandkanten etwas berieben und bestossen, obere Gelenke etwas aufgeplatzt, Rückdeckel leicht fleckig, vorderes Innengelenk geschwächt (nicht lose), Bindung allgemein etwas locker. Bis auf gelegentliche, schwache Bräunungen ein insgesamt wohlerhaltenes Exemplar. Bibliographisch für mich nicht nachweisbar – fehlt in sämtlichen Standardbibliographien der Naturgeschichte. KVK und Worldcat verzeichnen lediglich ein Exemplar weltweit (UB Leipzig) in öffentlichem Besitz (Abfrage am 09.07.2016). Seit über 20 Jahren auf keiner deutschen Auktion nachweisbar. Ob sich die Angabe „zweite umgearbeitete und vermehrte Auflage” auf den mit 120 Tafeln in Querfolio versehenen Titel „Dr. A. B. Reichenbach‘s Naturhistorischer Bilder-Atlas“ (Leipzig, Baumgärtner, 1845) bezieht, der jedoch gänzlich anders illustriert ist, oder auf eine unbekannte erste Ausgabe in vergleichbarer Ausstattung wie die vorliegende zweite, ist mangels bibliographischer Erfassung des Werkes nicht zu klären. Die Illustrationen folgen teils den Spezialmonographien des Bruders des Verfassers, Heinrich L. Reichenbach, teils erscheinen sie aber auch an Okens naturhistorisches Tafelwerk angelehnt. Obwohl der Atlas den allumfassenden Terminus „Naturgeschichte“ im Titel führt, werden in nach Organisationsgrad absteigender Folge ausschließlich Tiere behandelt, beginnend mit Säugern, endend mit Infusorientierchen und Polypen (Korallen).

        THE MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY

      1865 - Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1865. Original pinkish-brown wrappers. First Edition of this wartime story that had first appeared in the Atlantic Monthly in 1863, and would later be collected in Hale's book IF, YES, AND PERHAPS (1868). "Written to inspire patriotism during the Civil War, it was suggested by the remark of [Ohio's Clement] Vallandigham that he did not wish to live in a country that tolerated Lincoln's administration" [OCAL]. The tale is an account of a fictional Philip Nolan, who, on trial with Aaron Burr for conspiracy, calls out "Damn the United States. I wish I may never hear of the United States again" -- and who is accordingly granted his wish, condemned to spend the rest of his life at sea, passed from ship to ship, denied any news of his country. The sentence achieves its intent, as Nolan ultimately realizes the immense worth of his country, and misses it terribly. The goal of the book was to urge people in the North, especially in "western" states like Ohio, to support the Northern cause in preserving the nation.~This copy is of the first state, without the publisher's tipped-in notice. It is in near-fine condition (marginal corner of the first few leaves chipped away, a few minor smudges). A "Johnson High Spot" and a "Peter Parley to Penrod" selection. Housed in a morocco-backed clamshell case. Provenance: engraved "American Authors" bookplate of the noted collector Frank Maier, whose library was dispersed at auction in November 1909.

        Juive d'Alger

      Published by A. Cadart et Luquet, 79, rue de Richelieu, Paris 1865 - Etching. Printed on watermarked aqua-fortistes laid paper. State i/iii, before letters with artist's name and date engraved in the upper left corner of plate. Monogram in upper right corner of plate. Full sheet in excellent condition. Image size: 7 7/8 x 6 1/6inches. This stunning image is a rich proof impression of Delacroix's famous print, "Juive d'Alger." In early 1832 Delacroix visited North Africa. He accompanied his friend the Count de Mornay on his good-will mission to the Sultan of Morocco, Abd-er-Rahman II. This experience had a drastic influence on his art, introducing an edge of brilliant realism into his majestic paintings and bold engravings. He filled countless sketchbooks with drawings and observations of Arab life and gathered a wealth of ideas that served him for the rest of his life. This sumptuous etching is inspired by Delacroix's travels in North Africa, and is considered one of his greatest prints. Assigned to the delegation as dragoman was Abraham-Ben-Chimol of Tangiers, a Jew who introduced Delacroix to his wife and daughter. Delacroix was greatly influenced by this encounter and he did a number of images depicting young Jewish women in simple interiors. This breathtaking image depicts a young Jewish woman in traditional dress, seated in a simple room; she is accompanied by an Algerian woman who is seated on the floor beside her. The leader of the French Romantic movement, Delacroix is widely considered to be one of the greatest French painters in history, but he is also one the most hailed printmakers of the modern age. The simple lines and bold textures of this monumental print delineate Delacroix's genius, and distinguish him as a true master of his art. This is an exceptional early impression of this important print, executed before the published title and publication details were added. Included in one of the first collections of the Society de Aqua-Fortistes publications by Cadart, this print is extremely rare in this early state. With its rich dark tones and fresh details, this is a magnificent example of Delacroix's work and a true collectors item. Between 1862 and 1866 the Societe des Aqua-Fortistes produced a five-volume collection of artists' etchings entitled "Euax-Fortes Modernes." Printed on laid paper made especially for the series, this outstanding collection is one of the seminal publications to spring out of the etching revival in France. The Societe des Aqua-Fortistes was the French equivalent of the Etching Club in England and similarly it aimed to produce a collection of high quality etchings by the leading artists of the period. Like the Etching Club, the Societe des Aqua-Fortistes sought to raise the prestige of the medium from a reproductive technique to a fine art. Although the etching revival began somewhat earlier in England, the French movement exerted a far greater influence on the medium, and included a wider range of prominent artists. The Barbizon painters were among the earliest French artists to participate in the etching revival, and their superb prints helped raise the medium to new heights of genius. This unique publication, which included works by Manet, Corot, and Delacroix, is an outstanding example of fine art printing at its best Delteil, Le Peintre-Gravure Illustre , vol. III, no. 18, i/iii; Beraldi, Les Gravures du XIXe Siecle, Guide de l'Amateur d'Estampes Modernes , vol. V, p. 158, i/ii. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs ; Biographical information has been taken from the website of the National Gallery in Washington, and The Metropolitan Museum in New York.

        L.a.f., non datata (ma 1865)

      1865. 2 pp. in-8, vergate al recto ed al verso. «Caro Cecchino (?), A Montepulciano andai nel 1829. Sono dunque 36 anni. Non posso rammentarmi di tutti i miei scritti d'epoca così remota. Io so che il Vicario Martini mi propose fare domanda perché mi fosse concesso il ritorno, ed io negai; attesi il minuto col piè nella staffa, e me ne andai. Non è possibile il carteggio che si dice. E bada che l'articolo dice:-Supplicante al Granduca..Dunque dov'è la supplica al Granduca? Questa deve uscire fuori:-No, no: venga fuori quello che hanno: infami sono, sempre. Insisti o fuori la supplica o ritrattazione..». La lettera va riferita ad una tarda polemica politico-giornalistica circa una presunta supplica che il Guerrazzi avrebbe inoltrato al Granduca nel periodo dell'esilio di Montepulciano (durante il quale incontrò Mazzini ed aderì al suo programma politico). Va ricordato che Guerrazzi partecipò, ai moti toscani del '31 (che gli costarono la relegazione all'Elba) e del '48-'49, ricoprendo la carica di Dittatore (per i quali subì prima la carcerazione e poi l'esilio in Corsica). F.D.Guerrazzi (Livorno 1804-1873), fu uomo politico e scrittore famoso per i suoi romanzi storici.

        Autograph letter signed "L. Ds."

      3 pp. of a bifolium. Small octavo. Dated "Thursday morning." In French (with translation). Delibes would like to see his friend to discuss some issue of importance. He also mentions several prominent musical figures in Paris: the baritone Jacques Bouhy; Philippe Gille, the co-librettist of Delibes's opera, Lakmé; Halanzier, a director at the Paris Opera; and Léon Carvalho, director of the Opéra-Comique. "In spite of everything, Carvalho wants all the same to go ahead and at full steam... When one speaks to him of waiting... he jumps to the ceiling and does not accept any hesitation. This is very embarrassing." Slightly worn and creased. "Outside the theatre (for which Delibes wrote nearly all his music) his most notable work was as a composer of choruses, now undeservedly neglected. His output of songs was relatively small and that of instrumental and church music almost negligible. His cantata Alger (1865) attracted much attention at the time but has lain in obscurity since. Despite his poor record at the Conservatoire his workmanship was of the highest order; he had a natural gift for harmonic dexterity and a sure sense of orchestral colour, and nothing in his music is out of place. He was a disciplined composer, and it is tempting to see in the exquisite pastiche dances that he composed in 1882 for Hugo's Le roi s'amuse not just a sharp ear for style but a genuine feeling for the world of 17th-century French classicism, later to be espoused with such ardour by Saint-Saëns, d'Indy and Debussy." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online.

        A FANCY GROUP, In FRONT Of PETERSBURG No 76 [of Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War] August, 1864

      511 7th St., Washington [D. C.]: A. Gardner, 1865. Albumen photograph affixed to printed mounting board bearing title and publication information. The whole matted and encased in a brown wood frame with black borders. Light spotting, minor soil and faint damp-staining to photograph; light soil to mounting board; image somewhat yellowed, as to be expected. We note a few minor flaws in the plate, which can be found in the glass negative. Light wear and occasional scuffing to frame. Number and date of image obscured by matting, though typically found in the lower margin and presumed to do so here as well. VG overall.. Photograph: 7" x 9". Frame: 15-1/2" x 18-1/2" A photograph of Union General Orlando B. Willcox and his staff gathered outside his tent for a cockfight. Two African American camp servants (kneeling) are about to release the two chickens, while the soldiers sit or stand in a rough semi-circle, drinking, smoking cigars and smiling; two soldiers hold small whips, presumably to spur the birds on during the upcoming fight. The photograph was taken by David Knox, a photographer for Alexander Gardner's Washington gallery, during the early months of General Grant's ten-month siege of Petersburg, which began in June 1864. Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War, a two-volume compendium of 100 albumen photographs, is quite rare, with the latest set found at auction selling for nearly six figures. This photograph a much more affordable option, and one of only eight images in the Sketch Book depicting African Americans.
