        Floral Belles from the Green-House and Garden Painted from Nature.

      - New York: Charles Scribner & Company, 1867. Folio, (17 x 12 7/8 inches). Hand-colored lithographed frontispiece and 15 hand-colored lithographed plates, all colored by Badger. Publisher's full black morocco, upper cover with broad floral gilt borders and gilt lettered title, rear cover with floral border in blind, hinges carefully restored, spine in six compartments with a repeat decoration in gilt, dentelles, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. A very fine copy, internally immaculate. First (only) edition. A charming American flower book with hand-coloured plates: among the best folio flower books produced in America. Mrs. Badger was an illustrator with an intuitive feeling for the decorative, as she amply demonstrates in this book, a companion to her Wild Flowers (published 1859), though here focussed on the greenhouse and garden. "Contains 16 very beautiful full page flower plates in many colors and shades. Each flower portrayed is also the subject for a poem which serves as text for the illustration" (Bennett). Species represented include Azalea, Geranium, Roses, Jasmine, Bretia (Frontispiece); Camellia & Begonia, Night Blooming Cereus; Fuchsias, Cactus, Scarlet Geranium; Calla & Poincettia; Passion-Flowers, a bouquet of Roses, Narcissus, Hyacinth, Lily of the Valley, Tulip & Dielytra; Salvia & Dielytra; Pansies, Moss Rose; Tulips, Rose of Gethsemane; Larkspur & Japan Lily; Asters. The handcolored plates, colored by Mrs. Badger over very light lithographed lines and without captions (thus giving the plates the appearance of original watercolors), were executed in an era when chromolithographs were fast replacing such skilled hand work. A contemporary advertisement for the work by the publisher, who priced the work $30 when issued, describes it as follows: "The volume is a stately folio, elegantly bound in Turkey morocco and the paper and presswork, and the whole mechanical execution are perfect. There are sixteen pictures in the volume -- favorite or representative flowers -- and each of them is painted from nature by the patient and laborious hand of the artist, and with such exquisite care and taste, and delicacy of touch as to vie with nature herself." A review of the work in a December 1866 issue of Hours at Home proclaimed the work "without exaggeration, a most unique, highly artistic and gorgeous affair -- a work that reflects great credit on the artistic taste of the country, as well as on the genius and industry of the author." "Though little is known about her life other than the landmark dates of her birth, marriage and death, Mrs. Badger's fine drawings and talented hand have survived to keep her name alive" (J. Kramer, Women of Flowers, New York: 1996). Nissen BBI 56; Bennett p. 6; McGrath, p. 57. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed "E. Granados" to the French music publisher Bellon

      - Catalan pianist and composer Enrique Granados "appeared frequently in recitals, concerto performances and chamber music alongside such prominent figures as Thibaud, Saint-Saëns and Casals, a personal friend, for whom he composed several pieces. He became well known for his impromptu improvisations. Granados’s musical language is rooted in mainstream European traditions, frequently blended with elements derived from traditional Spanish (and less often Catalan) folk music. [His] foremost strength was undoubtedly his melodic gift, which can be best appreciated in his songs and piano works. Granados made a significant contribution to the development of a national Spanish school and, though he is often considered more conservative than Albéniz or Falla, the degree to which native elements inform his music should not be underestimated. " Mark Larrad in Grove onlineJean-Bénédikt Bellon (1867-1914) was adtive as a music publisher from ca. 1902-07. Letters of Granados are rare; this is a rather significant example. 1-1/4 pp. Octavo. Dated Barcelona, November 30, 1903. In black ink. On stationery with "Academia Granados" printed at head. In French (with translation).Granados grants Bellon the exclusive rights to his works in France. In a postscript he also mentions "Pablo" – almost certainly the noted cellist Pablo Casals (1876-1973)."I have spoken with my editors and they agreed to cede to you the exclusive rights of my works for all of France. I very much wish to see Paris again, and I will do so with the greatest pleasure on that occasion. One day or another I will travel there for nothing more than my own pleasure, and I assure you I will bear that expense without regret. You told me that Pablo would return the 25th – In a letter Pablo tells me that he will be there the 7th. I will certainly tell you of his return." Slightly worn; creased at folds.

        Signature of Victor Emanuel II (Vittorio Emanuele Maria Alberto Eugenio Ferdinando Tommaso) and five other ephemera items

      1867 - Vittorio Emanuele II - First United King of Italy. Signed clipped piece of paper with Vittorio Emanuele II signature. [with 5 other pieces involving Dr. Leone Levi visit to Italy in 1867].Various sizes. A letter from the Minister of Agriculture dated 2nd Oct. 1867; a program of the musical 'Della guardia Nazionale al Pranzo di S. M. i1 Re nel R. Palazzo Pitti' and a single page menu both with the date Oct. 5 1867; with a printed. invitation to the 'II Preffo del Palazzo d' Ordine di Sua Maesta. With an Italian sonnet written in Leone Levi's hand. Victor Emanuel II (Vittorio Emanuele Maria Alberto Eugenio Ferdinando Tommaso) (1820-1878) King of Sardinia from 1849 until, on 17 March 1861, he assumed the title King of Italy to become the first king of United Italy since the 6th century, a title he held until his death in 1878. The Italians gave him theepithet Father of the Homeland (Padre de/la Patria).Dr. Leone Levi was professor of Commercial Law in King's College, London.Leone Levi was an English jurist and statistician. Born to a Jewish family in Ancona, Italy, he worked in commerce there before emigrating to Liverpool in 1844. There he obtained British citizenship and joined the Presbyterian church. At the time, English law regarding the establishment of local chambers of commerce was highly unsystematic and wanting. He therefore advocated their institution in numerous pamphlets, leading to the establishment of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce in 1849, with Levi as its secretary. In 1850 he published his Commercial Law of the World, an exhaustive comparative treatise upon the laws and codes of mercantile countries. Appointed in 1852 to the chair of commercial law at King's College London, he was a popular instructor who innovated evening classes.Levi was called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn in 1859, and a doctorate in political science from the University of Tübingen. His chief work, History of British Commerce and of the Economic Progress of the British Nation, 1763-1870, is considered to be a partisan account of British economic development, but its value as a work of reference cannot be gainsaid. His other works include: Work and Pay; Wages and Earnings of the Working Classes; and International Law, with Materials for a Code. quoted from Wikipedia. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Königsberg und setzte daneben seine musikalische Ausbildung fort, studierte am Sternschen Konservatorium in Berlin, war Schüler Hans von Bülows, Hugo Ulrichs und Julius Sterns und ging anschließend als Organist, Pianist, Lehrer und Chorleiter nach Winterthur. "Seit dieser Zeit mit Johannes Brahms befreundet, war er nach 1867 auch in Zürich tätig, wohin er 1870 übersiedelte. Götz komponierte Kammermusik, an Brahms orientierte Lieder und Chöre sowie Bühnenwerke, u. a. 'Der Widerspenstigen Zähmung' nach Shakespeare (Uraufführung 1874)" (DBE).

        Traite des Matieres Colorantes

      1867. SCHUTZENBERGER, Paul. Traité des matières colorantes. Two volumes. xi, 544, [1], 647, [1] pp. With 74 tipped-in colored fabric samples, text figures. 8vo., 208 x 130 mm, bound in contemporary blue half leather over boards, gilt spine. Paris: Victor Masson et fils, 1867. |~||~||~||~| First and Only Edition. This early treatise by an important 19th-century chemist deals extensively with colouring matters and their application to dyeing, as well as with textile fibers and their treatment. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of the book is the presence of seventy-four actual colored fabric samples, employed by the author to illustrate his points. The importance of this publication is borne out in a testimonial delivered on the occasion of the centenary of Schützenberger's birth, celebrated in 1929: "This remarkable work, still a classic even today, has rendered inappreciable service to colorists of the entire world. It was the most complete collection of information then available on dyes and their application to textiles." (Centenaire Paul Schutzenberger p. 74). Schützenberger (1829-1897) taught chemistry at Mulhouse before moving to Paris in 1865, where he became Director of the Ecole Municipale de Physique et Chemie in 1882. He was elected to the French Academy of Sciences in 1888. Perhaps his greatest achievement was the discovery of hydrosulphurous acid. Occasional browning, but otherwise in excellent condition.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Alexander W. Thayer").

      Triest, 5. VIII. 1867.. 3 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 4to. Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf des "Consulate of the United States of America".. "My dear Gräfin, I received your letter yesterday, and am pleased, anew, at the confidence you repose in me, in trusting Albert to my care. Mrs. Mayer will grant the room, but as there is now no table (no 'familien-essen') kept by her, and as I dine privatim, I must introduce Albert for his dinner to the very good restaurant, where, for some time, I was a regular guest. As many of his hours, as he desires, he will pass in my rooms with my books. I am only sorry that there is no pianoforte in the house. Music he will have little or none; but he can have saltwater bathing, which is a sort of music for the skin. I go from my bed to the water, and, thence, to Breakfast, and, I think, he would enjoy the same. If he can swim, he can go into the open water, if not he can bathe in the exclusive little bathrooms. I will do the best I can to have him enjoy himself - but, alas! a man of my age is not the most pleasant of companions for a boy of 16. You know that there are few persons of his rank here, - at all events - few are among my friends; but some of the 'Bürgerlichen' are very pleasant people, and perhaps we can find pleasant occupation for an evening or two with some of them [...]". - Spuren alter Faltung und Montagespur am Gegenblatt verso; kl. Randläsur am ersten Blatt (ohne Textberührung). - Alexander Wheelock Thayer, zunächst Bibliothekar an der Harvard Law School, wechselte 1862 in den diplomatischen Dienst und diente von 1865 bis 1882 als amerikanischer Konsul in Triest; das Amt sicherte ihm die wirtschaftliche Basis für seine Beethovenstudien. Seine monumentale Beethoven-Biographie, ein Meilenstein der Forschung, war bei seinem Tode erst in drei Bänden (1866-79) veröffentlicht; die restlichen beiden Bände gab Hugo Riemann posthum heraus.

Margins a little irregularly trimmed, removed from a scrapbook or backer, a bit wrinkled, and with a small marginal tear that is threatening to become a chip, a good only copy.

      LOG #1. 95 voyages, November 8, 1867-May 4, 1878. Written in ink on 95 leaves (rectos only) in a legible hand, one page per voyage. Leather and marbled boards, tips somewhat rubbed. 13.75" x 8.25". Each page has printed headings, accomplished by hand, listing port where the voyage originated and destination, what kind and how much freight, dates the freight was finished loading, etc. About half the page is occupied with two columns, also printed and accomplished by hand, one for "Charges" and one for "Expenses", then the printed "Summary" (accomplished by hand) at the bottom of the page lists the whole amount of freight, port charges, "amount to be divided" the Captain's share, owner's share, balance due, etc. [A note on the verso of leaf #85 (the 85th voyage) says that "Edward Carlton" has taken charge of the "Wishart" as Master, "July the 2nd, 1877.] The schooner travels up and down the east coast, with Philadelphia, Boston, New York, Baltimore, Norfolk, and Providence being among the most frequent ports of call. The northernmost ports are in Maine (Kennebeck, Rockport, Portland, Spruce Head) and the southernmost are Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC. Listings under the "Freight" heading include: coal (by far the most frequent cargo), ice (surprisingly frequent), lumber and timber, iron, copper ore, water pipes, "cords wood", corn and flour, coal oil, iron pipe, pig iron, chalk, stone, and guano, as well as "naval stores", "general cargo" and "sundries".

Written in at least two different hands and reporting styles, in dark ink and purple ink, varying degrees of legibility, but all quite readable. This is a more traditional log book, offering many details on daily weather (sometimes every few hours), where the ship is sailing to and from, geographical landmarks passed en route, whether it's "at anchor" or "in port" on arrival, etc. Common phrases include "took steam", "pumps tried and vessel tite [sic]" (or once, "pumps tried and vessel leaking 140 per hour"), "tacked ship", "employed shop's duty", etc. There are occasional notes on the freight discharged or loaded, most frequently coal and ice. The most frequent trips are between Weymouth, MA and Philadelphia, Philadelphia and Boston, Boston and New York, and there are also a number involving ports in Maine (Kennebeck River, Gardiner, Belfast) as well as Hoboken, NJ and Brooklyn, NY, and Washington, D.C. ~~~ LOG #3. 48 handwritten pages.

The first several pages of the log describe the "Wishart"'s ill-fated trip sailing for New York from the "Pamunk[e]y River", VA. At 8 p.m. on December 17, 1887, a gale and heavy winds caused the vessel to "labor heavily" off Barnegat Light (NJ) and at 10:30, she had "sprung a leak. Pumps kept going. At 11:30 head four feet of water in the hold and at 12 m. [sic] vessel was hove on her beam ends when the greater part of deck load of [wooden] ties washed overboard."
