        Treaty between the United States of America and the O'Gallala band of Dakota or Sioux Indians. Concluded October 28, 1865. Ratification advised, with amendment, March 5, 1866. Proclaimed March 17, 1866.

      [Washington: publisher not identified Folio (29.6 cm; 11.625"). 6, [2] pp.. 1866] Printed version of the treaty between the United States government and the Oglala Lakota signed in print by Newton Edmunds (governor of the Dakota Territory), Edward B. Taylor (superintendent of Indian affairs for the northern superintendency), Gen. H.H. Sibley, Tan-tan-ka-has-ka (Chief Long Bull), Ma-lo-wa-ta-khe (The Charging Bear), Pa-ha-to-ne-je (The Man that Stands on a Hill), and others at Fort Sully, Dakota Territory, on 28 October 1865. The treaty states that the United States will pay each family thirty dollars annually for twenty years for their decisions to "withdraw from the route overland already established," ceasing all warfare with other groups, and to settle future disputes by using the president as an arbitrator. The government promises that it will provide protection from "annoyance or molestation on the part of whites or Indians" should members of the group settle permanently to engage in agricultural pursuits, and offers further incentives for their doing so. It was ratified 5 March 1866 and later proclaimed by President Johnson on March 17. Folded sheets, light age-toning, gently chipped along edges; light pencilling on upper margin of title-page.

        The new and heretofore unfigured species of the birds of North America.

      For the Author New York -1869 1866 - Two volumes in 1, large folio (60 x 47 cm). 73 fine hand-coloured lithographs after Elliot, Wolf, and Sheppard, including an additional plate, Parus Occidentalis, also after Elliot, bound in introduction, 21 India proof engravings by Linton after Sheppard mounted in text, occasional light browning to text, one plate with 2 small marginal tears, modern green half morocco gilt, top edge gilt. The finest ornithological work published in the United States, by the finest bird artist in America after Audubon - The Bradley-Martin copy of the first edition, limited to 200 copies only. Only 71 names appear on the original subscribers list. Nearly all the species are illustrated life-size. The work is dedicated to the Alexander Wilson, "pioneer of American ornithologists", and the preface additionally pays homage to Audubon. The book was intended as a sort of supplement to Audubon's and Wilson's works, as it shows birds which are not included in their works. Amongst the many fine illustrations, mention should be made of Wolf's depiction of the falco islandicus which has become an icon of ornithological illustration. The additional plate, though mentioned in the list of plates, is not assigned a plate number and is instead given the note: See Introduction. Although this plate has been recorded in other copies, none of the cited bibliographies call for, or mention, it. With celebrated provenance: H. Bradley Martin was a notable collector of books in the mid-twentieth century, and his collection was particularly renowned for its fine bird books which included a complete first edition double-elephant folio Audubon Birds.

It is incomplete,missing part 60 (facsimile provided). The print-on-demand copy from the British Library states 502 pages, and Oxford and the BL both hold copies. Condition is good only, some pages heavily worn, some taped in place, some leaves loose, tears and creases etc. Front cover missing, provided in facsimile only. . Good. Hardcover. 1866.

The oath was signed by A. M. Vea (alternately written as A. McVea and A. McVeos) before C. H. Wellborn, the county's Chief Justice. In it Vea swears that 1) his 19 bales of cotton were never the property of the Confederacy, 2) he was unembraced by any of the exceptions of the Presidential proclamation of 29 May 1865, 3) he had already taken the Amnesty Oath, 4) his net worth was less than $20,000, and 5) there was no lien on the cotton for wages due to Freedmen. Light soiling and wear. Expected file folds. Very nice shape overall. Early in the American Civil War, the U. S. Congress passed two "Confiscation Acts" that authorized Union commanders to seize the property of all those participating directly in rebellion. After the war ended and Union forces occupied the entire South, this placed an incredible hardship on Southern civilians whose property, including crops, were seized. So, on 2 May 1865, President Andrew Johnson proclaimed amnesty and the return of property to Southerners who would take an oath of allegiance to the United States. As a result, "military commanders during reconstruction were flooded with claims for the return of real estate, livestock and cotton. Cotton was at the forefront of all claims, having been seized by Federal troops upon occupation and sold at auction by Treasury agents. In Texas, owners filed 'Planters' Oaths" to establish private rather than government ownership of their cotton." (See Parole, Pardon, Pass and Amnesty Documents of the Civil War by Davis and Tremmel). Extremely scarce. As of 2016, none in the trade. No auction records at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub, however a manuscript oath sold on in 2013, and a similar partially printed oath from Alabama was sold as part of a lot of Confederate militaria by Damon Mills Fine Antique Arms, date unknown. No institutional holdings per OCLC.

        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life

      Ex-library, library rebound during 20th century, original cover and fly leafs removed (which is the reason the book's condition is not rated higher). Other than the damage by the library to the title page, the book is almost unmarked. I note one penciled check mark on page 64. There are several penciled pound signs in the advertisement section. "The fourth edition of 1866 was of 1,500 copies. It was again extensively altered, and it is in this one that the date of the first edition, as given on the verso of the half title, is corrected from October 1st to November 24th. Darwin's own copy, at Cambridge, is in a case of the same pattern as those of the first three editions, but all other copies, although the same in general, have origin and species in italic; the blind stamping on both boards is new and the whole volume is a little shorter. There are two minor variations of this case; the earlier has the inserted advertisements dated January 1865 and the later dated April 1867." http://darwin-online.org.uk/EditorialIntroductions/Freeman_OntheOriginofSpecies.html. This copy is January 1865.Special note: This book has been offered to the Vanderbilt University libraries, which acquired the original collection from which this book was once held. This offer to donate the book will expire at the end of September 2016, at which time the book will be open for purchase. Preliminary offers will be accepted and requests for additional information are welcomed. The book will not be available for purchased until October 2016.

        The Witchcraft Delusion in New England: Its Rise, Progress, and Termination, as Exhibited by Dr. Cotton Mather, in The Wonders of the Invisible World; and by Mr. Robert Calef, in his More Wonders of the Invisible World (Three Volumes)

      Roxbury, MA: Printed for Elliot Woodward, 1866. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. Three quarto volumes (9.5? x 11?). In the original bindings, quarter bound in black leather over marbled boards. This edition limited to 50 hand-numbered, large paper copies (stated). THIS IS COPY #1. Hand-numbered ?1? in red ink is in first volume only. Volumes 2 and 3 are blank (as issued). NOTE: There were two additional large paper editions of this title released in 1866, one was limited to 70 copies, the other to 280 copies). Title page in red and black. 247, 212, 244. Index at end of volume 3. 2 former owner?s signatures (see below). The leather on the spines of all three volumes is somewhat worn with scrapes and chips (including a dime-sized chip to head of spine on volume 3) though some re-touch work was done at some point which has resulted in a very presentable set. Light wear to corner edges, browning to outer edges of paste-downs and free end papers. There is some shelf wear to the bottom edges of the marbled boards on all three volumes. There is a thin 2? vertical moisture stain to the preliminary pages of volume one. The first 30 or so pages of volume one show a soft crease to the lower right side of pages (see the photo of the title page). There is some very light staining to the lower margin of the last few pages in volume 3. The bindings on all three volumes are tight and strong. This set remains in very good condition and in this limited edition of 50 (not to mention copy #1), it is quite rare. These three volumes make up . The first of these three volumes contains Mathers? ?The Wonders of the Invisible World? (first published in 1693), in which he defends his own role in the witch hunts that took place in Salem, Massachusets, and shares his beliefs about witchcraft and the powers associated with it, and that they are the works of the Devil. He truly believed that persecuting witches would restore order to, and secure God?s blessings for, the colony. Calef?s ?More Wonders of the Invisible World? takes up volumes two and three. In it, Calef denounces entirely the Salem witch trials and takes issue with Cotton Mather?s involvements and beliefs. The Boston clergy, highly influenced by Mather, would not allow Calef?s book to be published in Massachussets. It was first published in England in 1700. After publication Mather accused Calef of being a follower of Satan, and Mathers? father, Increase Mather, publicly burned Calef?s book in Harvard Yard. Drake?s informative footnotes are present throughout all three volumes. This set was once owned by James Tanis and includes his signature. Tanis, who passed away in 2015, was a minister, a scholar, and a professor and director of libraries at Bryn Mawr College. He served as the curator of rare books and manuscripts at Union Theological Seminary. At the same time, he progressed from librarian and lecturer at Harvard Divinity School to the same roles at Yale University in the mid-1960s, and finally to Bryn Mawr in 1969. There is an additional former owner?s signature in all three volumes as well.

        ARMSMEAR: THE HOME, THE ARM, AND THE ARMORY OF SAMUEL COLT. A MEMORIAL.

      New York. 1866. - 399pp. Frontispiece, maps, and plates. Quarto. Contemporary gilt brown morocco presentation binding, with armorial crest gilt stamped on boards, a.e.g. Hinged cracked but holding, some moderate shelf wear. Presentation inscription on front endpaper. Some offsetting of frontispiece onto titlepage. Faint scattered foxing, and an occasional light dampstain. Very good. This elaborate memorial volume is a tribute to the famous gun designer and manufacturer, Samuel Colt, prepared after his death by his widow. Besides describing the grounds of the Colt estate in Hartford, it contains a great deal of information relating to Colt's career, the development of his business and of his famous revolver, which played such a central role in shaping the West. This work is usually found in a half calf binding, but the present copy is housed in a full morocco presentation binding, gilt stamped with the armorial crest of Samuel Colt. It was given by Colt's widow to Major General Thomas Sherman, and is inscribed by her on the front free endpaper recto, "Major General T. Sherman, with the regards of Mrs. Samuel Colt. Armsmear. September 16th 1867." General Sherman (no relation to the more famous general of that name) was an old regular army officer who known Samuel Colt well and was one of the Army group to whom the armsmaker sent weapons to test. Relatively old at the time of the Civil War, he served in the Gulf and was in command at New Orleans at the end of the war, with the rank of brevet major general. He was stationed at Newport, R.I. at the time Mrs. colt gave him this volume. HOWES C618, "b." SABIN 14763. GENERALS IN BLUE, pp. 440-441.

        Autograph Quotation (unsigned).

      "The first female sociologist" according to some and a feminist at a time when that word was unknown, this versatile English writer penned nonfiction, essays, poetry, novels, short stories, travelogues, economics and more and was one of the few self-supporting women writers of her age. Autograph Quotation (unsigned), 1p, 7 3/4" X 6 3/4", n.p., n.y. Very good. Mild age toning and old (not weakened) folds; tipped to similar-size sheet. Four 4-line stanzas from Martineau's 1866 poem, "The Coming of Christ in Power," the first stanza reading: "Lord Jesus, come! for still / Vice shouts her maniac mirth. / And famished thousands crave their fill / While teems the fruitful earth." And the last stanza reads: "Come, as in days of old, / With words of grace & power! / Gather us all within thy fold, / And never leave us more." Interestingly, the phraseology of these four stanzas differs considerably from some printed versions of it. Vertically, along the right edge, a different unknown hand notes, "Composed and written by Harriet Martineau. / Given to me by Mrs. Follen." Eliza L. Follen (1787-1860) was an American abolitionist and wife of poet Charles Follen; in 1844 she wrote the introduction to the American edition of Martineau's book "Life in the Sick-Room: Essays." An intriguing Martineau text, though not signed, and with interesting provenance.

        THE FATHER OF RUSSIAN PHYSIOLOGY] Refleksy golovnogo mozga [i.e. Reflexes of the Brain]

      A. Golovachov, St. Petersburg 1866 - [4], II, 186 pp. 8vo. Contemporary quarter-leather binding. The name of the author and the book title as well as owner's initials in gilt on the spine. Owner's private stamp on the title. Some side foxing on the first seven pages of the text and on the last five. The top of the spine has been restored. Overall copy is in good condition. Very rare. First edition of the ground-breaking work that established the basis of the Russian School of Physiology. Ivan Mikhailovich Sechenov (1829-1905) single-handedly created this field of Russian science, by introducing electrophysiology and neurophysiology into medical laboratories. This is one of the main works by Sechenov. Originally an article with the same name was to be printed in Sovremennik, the most influential periodical of the time, but thst was forbidden by the censor, and it was published in 1863 in the medical journal, Meditsinsky vestnik. The expanded book version, now a classic text, appeared four years later. This work marked the beginning of the era of objective physiology. Sechenov demonstrated that since reflexes cannot occur without external stimuli, physiological activity is brought about by stimuli that act on the sense organs. He made a significant contribution to our knowledge of reflexes by determining that reflexes depend not only on current stimuli but also on past influences. Sechenov believed that the retention of vestiges in the central nervous system is the basis for memory; inhibition is the mechanism for the selective control of behavior; and the operation of the amplifying mechanism of the brain is the foundation for motivation. Ivan Pavlov, the most famous of Sechenov's pupils, called him "the father of Russian physiology". [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        EXTRACTS FROM LETTERS WRITTEN WHILE IN ACTIVE SERVICE IN THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC AND THE ARMY OF THE GULF, DURING "OUR CIVIL WAR" [manuscript title].

      [N.p., likely Massachusetts. ca. 1866]. - 121pp. Contemporary half cloth and marbled boards. Tape reinforcements at spine ends. Internally clean. Very good. An intriguing post-Civil War journal of transcribed letters and extracts of documents, containing assorted anecdotes and reminiscences relating to Union soldier, David F. Hicks. Most of the contents were transcribed by Hicks' wife, though it seems to have been a collaborative effort with a couple of different hands in evidence. A summary by Mrs. Hicks on pp.68-9 gives a fine overview of Hicks' career. Sgt. David F. Hicks served in Co. B, 13th Reg., Massachusetts Volunteers. He enlisted at the start of the war in April 1861 and was mustered out in July 1864 as a lieutenant, after much illness and being wounded in battle multiple times. Towards the end of his service, Hicks was with the 7th Infantry Corps d'Afrique, Ullman's Brigade which was subsequently consolidated as the 79th Reg. Colored Infantry. The journal does not cover all aspects of his army life, such as the battles of South Mountain and Chantilly, nor does it include letters from 1861. It does include personal descriptions of numerous battles, including Aquia Creek, 2nd Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and the Siege of Port Hudson. There are also references to Warrenton, Winchester and Harper's Ferry. Hicks apparently liked generals Banks, Hooker and Burnside, in addition to his idol McClellan, but spoke ill of Pope and Porter. Before being discharged, he spent some time in New Orleans (avoiding Confederate guerillas) and Texas where he engaged in recruiting. Hicks took disability in 1866 and died shortly thereafter. The entries for the present notebook run from Jan. 30, 1862 to Dec. 8, 1863, and detail the sweep of Hicks' experience in the war. A sampling of extracts from the letters are as follows: 1) "[Camp near Fredericksburg, May 24, 1862]. Old Abe was here yesterday with Sec. Stanton. He reviewed the whole corps. He looks like his pictures only thinner." 2) "[Sharpsburg / Battle of Antietam, Sept. 18, 1862]. We had a very severe battle yesterday. Our brigade commenced the attack and stood nobly. They suffered terribly. I had one ball through the waist of my coat, two through my dipper and a spent ball hit me on the head and I had my gun shot away in my hand. I fired all my ammunition and borrowed all I could." 3) "[Camp near Falmouth / Battle of Fredericksburg, Dec. 17, 1862]. We fought another great battle and I have escaped unhurt. [O]ur whole army retreated across to this side of the Rappahannock. The result of this battle is the loss of 15,000 men killed and wounded and the knowledge that the enemy have quite as large an army as our own, in front of us, and that they are posted in an almost impregnable position." 4) "[Port Hudson, July 24, 1863]. In order to get a negro to do anything small or great, you have to lecture him half an hour in order to give him a new set of brains, and then use force to make him do it. They will make valuable auxiliaries to help garrison a fort and work on fortifications and in a siege, but for an active army in the field.they are not worth shucks. [L]eave them to themselves, they would loll around till they actually saw the danger, then they would run and leave all they possessed." 5) "[New Orleans, Dec. 8, 1863]. I wrote to M a few days ago when on my way to Texas. I returned from there yesterday. I had a very pleasant time on the voyage there and back. We landed at Matagorda Bay, where the fort of the Texas Army now is. There is a fine fort there mounting 8 guns which the Rebels abandoned upon the approach of our forces. This place will be the base of operations against Galveston. It will probably take a month to organize the Army for the attack. When Galveston falls Texas is gone up. It is thought it will be an easy conquest." Mrs. Hicks spends five pages towards the end of the journal (pp.106-110) summarizing her husband's last few months in the army, writing in the third person. Apparently, the time spent

        EXTRACTS FROM LETTERS WRITTEN WHILE IN ACTIVE SERVICE IN THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC AND THE ARMY OF THE GULF, DURING "OUR CIVIL WAR" [manuscript title]

      [N.p., likely Massachusetts, 1866. 121pp. Contemporary half cloth and marbled boards. Tape reinforcements at spine ends. Internally clean. Very good. An intriguing post-Civil War journal of transcribed letters and extracts of documents, containing assorted anecdotes and reminiscences relating to Union soldier, David F. Hicks. Most of the contents were transcribed by Hicks' wife, though it seems to have been a collaborative effort with a couple of different hands in evidence. A summary by Mrs. Hicks on pp.68-9 gives a fine overview of Hicks' career. Sgt. David F. Hicks served in Co. B, 13th Reg., Massachusetts Volunteers. He enlisted at the start of the war in April 1861 and was mustered out in July 1864 as a lieutenant, after much illness and being wounded in battle multiple times. Towards the end of his service, Hicks was with the 7th Infantry Corps d'Afrique, Ullman's Brigade which was subsequently consolidated as the 79th Reg. Colored Infantry. The journal does not cover all aspects of his army life, such as the battles of South Mountain and Chantilly, nor does it include letters from 1861. It does include personal descriptions of numerous battles, including Aquia Creek, 2nd Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and the Siege of Port Hudson. There are also references to Warrenton, Winchester and Harper's Ferry. Hicks apparently liked generals Banks, Hooker and Burnside, in addition to his idol McClellan, but spoke ill of Pope and Porter. Before being discharged, he spent some time in New Orleans (avoiding Confederate guerillas) and Texas where he engaged in recruiting. Hicks took disability in 1866 and died shortly thereafter. The entries for the present notebook run from Jan. 30, 1862 to Dec. 8, 1863, and detail the sweep of Hicks' experience in the war. A sampling of extracts from the letters are as follows: 1) "[Camp near Fredericksburg, May 24, 1862]. Old Abe was here yesterday with Sec. Stanton. He reviewed the whole corps. He looks like his pictures only thinner...." 2) "[Sharpsburg / Battle of Antietam, Sept. 18, 1862]. We had a very severe battle yesterday.... Our brigade commenced the attack and stood nobly. They suffered terribly.... I had one ball through the waist of my coat, two through my dipper and a spent ball hit me on the head and I had my gun shot away in my hand. I fired all my ammunition and borrowed all I could...." 3) "[Camp near Falmouth / Battle of Fredericksburg, Dec. 17, 1862]. We fought another great battle and I have escaped unhurt.... [O]ur whole army retreated across to this side of the Rappahannock. The result of this battle is the loss of 15,000 men killed and wounded and the knowledge that the enemy have quite as large an army as our own, in front of us, and that they are posted in an almost impregnable position...." 4) "[Port Hudson, July 24, 1863]. In order to get a negro to do anything small or great, you have to lecture him half an hour in order to give him a new set of brains, and then use force to make him do it. They will make valuable auxiliaries to help garrison a fort and work on fortifications and in a siege, but for an active army in the field...they are not worth shucks.... [L]eave them to themselves, they would loll around till they actually saw the danger, then they would run and leave all they possessed." 5) "[New Orleans, Dec. 8, 1863]. I wrote to M a few days ago when on my way to Texas. I returned from there yesterday. I had a very pleasant time on the voyage there and back.... We landed at Matagorda Bay, where the fort of the Texas Army now is. There is a fine fort there mounting 8 guns which the Rebels abandoned upon the approach of our forces. This place will be the base of operations against Galveston. It will probably take a month to organize the Army for the attack. When Galveston falls Texas is gone up. It is thought it will be an easy conquest." Mrs. Hicks spends five pages towards the end of the journal (pp.106-110) summarizing her husband's last few months in the army, writing in the third person. Apparently, the time spent in the Army of the Gulf was fatal to him, as the effects of malaria, fever and ague resulted in his death from complications of heart disease after his discharge. This journal was assembled as a memorial to him and a respectful tribute to his service in a noble cause. A notebook containing extracts of letters and documents from a Union soldier who spent considerable time in the western theater during the Civil War.

        Anselm Feuerbach: Lesbia mit dem Vogel (Originalzeichnung)

      1866 - Schwarze Kreide und weiße Höhung auf bräunlichem Papier. 40,5 x 31,5 cm. Links mittig monogrammiert. Verso: Weibliche Figur an südlichem Gestade. Provenienz: Paul Cassirer, Berlin. Julius Böhler, München. Privatbesitz, München. Es handelt sich um eine Vorstudie zu Anselm Feuerbachs Gemälde "Lesbia mit dem Vogel" (vgl. Jürgen Ecker: Anselm Feuerbach. Leben und Werk. Kritischer Katalog der Gemälde, Ölskizzen und Ölstudien. München 1991, Nr. 448, Seite 284). Biografie: Anselm Feuerbach (1829 Speyer - 1880 Venedig). Anselm Feuerbach zählt neben Arnold Böcklin und Hans von Marées zu den wichtigsten Vertretern der Deutschrömer, einer deutschsprachigen Künstlergruppe in Italien, die sich in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts bildet. Nach Studienaufenthalten in Düsseldorf, München und Antwerpen reist Feuerbach 1851 nach Paris, wo er als Schüler in das Atelier von Thomas Couture eintritt, dessen Monumentalgemälde ''Die Römer der Verfallszeit'' (Musée d’Orsay, Paris) seine Kunstauffassung nachhaltig prägt. Doch erst in Italien, wohin er ab 1855 immer wieder reist, findet Feuerbach seine eigentliche künstlerische Heimat. Ein Stipendium ermöglicht ihm die Reise nach Venedig, von wo er 1856 über Florenz nach Rom kommt. Dort verkehrt er mit den Künstlern Arnold Böcklin, Reinhold Begas und Ludwig Passini sowie seinem späteren Biographen Julius Allgeyer, der ihn 1862 mit dem Kunstmäzen Graf Schack bekannt macht. Dieser erwirbt in den folgenden Jahren etliche Gemälde Feuerbachs und sichert so das finanzielle Auskommen des verschwenderisch lebenden Malers. Das künstlerisch wie persönlich entscheidende Erlebnis in Rom ist für Feuerbach die Begegnung mit Anna Risi, genannt Nanna. 1860 wird sie sein Modell, wenig später seine Geliebte. Wie keine zweite Frau verkörpert Nanna Feuerbachs Idealvorstellung von Weiblichkeit, sie erscheint ihm als Sinnbild zeitloser Schönheit, Hoheit, Würde und klassischer Größe schlechthin. In den kommenden Jahren wird die junge Römerin zum wichtigsten Thema seiner Gemälde, in denen sie als reale Person wie auch als historische bzw. mythologische Figur erscheint (z.B. „Lucrezia Borgia“ (Städel Museum, Frankfurt am Main) oder „Iphigenie“ (Hessisches Landesmuseum, Darmstadt). Obwohl die Entwicklung von Feuerbachs eigenem charakteristischen Stil, der sich durch ein subtil gedämpftes Kolorit sowie eine monumentale Auffassung der Form auszeichnet, untrennbar mit Nanna verbunden ist, kommt es 1865 zum Bruch zwischen den beiden, woran die komplizierte und gegensätzliche Natur des Künstlers wesentlichen Anteil hat. Erst Jahre später findet er in Lucia Brunacci ein neues Modell, das ihm als meist heroische Figur für die großen Kompositionen seiner Reifezeit dient (z.B. „Medea“ (Neue Pinakothek, München)). 1872 nimmt Feuerbach eine Professur für Historienmalerei an der Wiener Akademie an, aufgrund ausbleibender künstlerischer Erfolge gibt er diese Position jedoch vier Jahre später wieder auf. 1876 siedelt er nach kurzem Aufenthalt in Deutschland nach Venedig über, wo er 1880 im Alter 50 Jahren in Einsamkeit stirbt. Einen wesentlichen Anteil an der Anerkennung und wirtschaftlichen Absicherung Feuerbachs hat von Anbeginn seine Stiefmutter Henriette, die in der Rolle eines Agenten die geschäftlichen Interessen ihres Sohnes in der alten Heimat vertritt. Nach seinem Tod bearbeitet sie seine hinterlassenen autobiographischen Schriften und gibt sie als „Vermächtnis“ heraus. Es ist bis heute die meist verlegte deutschsprachige Künstlerbiographie, die Feuerbach postum über Jahrzehnte hinweg einen kultähnlichen Status sichert. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
