        Exposition Universelle de 1867, Paris

      Paris: Lemercier, 1867. Faisandier, A.. Four panel, accordion-folding peepshow of the 1867 Exposition Universelle, held on the Champ-de-Mars in Paris. The front-face shows a bird's-eye view of the exposition complex as seen from the north bank of the Seine. Beneath the image, the title is written in five languages, along with the maker information. Three small, circular peep holes cross the center. The cut-out panels inside the peepshow depict the crowded interior of the circular Vestibule and Palace. The visitors, of all shapes and sizes and wearing all manner of dress, wander between the booths in the glass-ceilinged exhibition area. The booths themselves, colored in rich warm tones, represent a range of Eastern cultures, lending the entire spectacle an air of the exotic. The back-scene shows the open garden at the center of the Palace. Curtained entrances ring the green, labeled with the names and flags of the participating nations. These wonderfully detailed crowd scenes offer something new each time the viewer returns to them. The front and back boards are covered in a patterned purple cloth, with a gold border along the edges of the front-face. Some wear to covers, two small segments of gold border missing, and one bumped corner. Otherwise, this rare peepshow is in fine working order.

        THE STORY OF WALDEMAR KRONE'S YOUTH

      Edinburgh: Edmonston and Douglas, 1867. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH n. Hardcover. Probably Done by a Douglas Cockerell Student. 184 x 121 mm (7 1/4 x 4 3/4"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. ATTRACTIVE ARTS AND CRAFTS-STYLE DARK GREEN MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, each cover with 40 gilt lotus flowers (in five vertical rows of eight), the flowers all flanked by a gilt dot in each of the four corners, raised bands, spine panels with similar floral decoration, gilt titling and turn-ins, all edges gilt. Green spines inevitably sunned to an olive brown, joints and corners a little rubbed, very isolated minor foxing, otherwise fine--clean and fresh internally, and the appealing binding lustrous and without significant wear. This bildungsroman was the first work published by Danish writer Herman Frederik Ewald (1821-1908), who was in his day one of the most widely read authors in Denmark. Originally issued in 1861, it is the story of a rather vain young poet, Waldemar Krone, his rejection of the good provincial girl who loves him, and his ill-fated infatuation with a flighty countess. When the countess throws him over for a French marquis, Krone comes to recognize the worth of Ida, who still loves him. They are happily married, while the unfortunate countess discovers her husband is a fraud before she dies in childbirth. While this and the two works that followed had contemporaneous settings, Ewald later became known for his meticulously researched historical novels. "Waldemar" is a surprisingly uncommon work: OCLC locates just six copies, three in the United States. The binding appears to have been executed by an amateur who could well have been a pupil of Douglas Cockerell, as a pencilled note on the front flyleaf of volume I asserts. The stamped titling on the spines is too uneven to have been Cockerell's own work, though the intricate floral tooling on the boards is well done; in any case, the lotus flower stamp used on these covers seems identical with the tooling used for item #282 in Maggs Catalogue 1212, a book bound by Cockerell ca. 1902. Cockerell (1870-1945) was generally considered to be the leading and most respected binder of his day, and through his work, his teaching, and his publications, he probably exerted "more influence on bookbinding practice and design than any one man has had before." (DNB) An apprentice for Cobden-Sanderson when the latter began his Doves Bindery in 1894, Cockerell set up his own workshop in 1897. During these early years, he was appointed teacher of bookbinding at the London County Council Central School of Arts & Crafts, where he taught Francis Sangorski and George Sutcliffe.

        The Textile Manufactures and the Costumes of the People of India Prepared under the Authority of the Secretary of State for India in Council

      London: India Museum, 1867.

John Forbes Watson (1827?-1892), reporter for the Products of India at the India Office, London included explanatory text and illustrations of how the fabrics were worn as clothing in India. The textile samples were intended to inspire students and textile manufacturers in Britain and also to alert them to the opportunities of the vast Indian market. Forbes Watson often included notes on cost, who might wear the complete piece and how. Gernsheim, 348.

      Paris: Léon Escudier [PN L.E. 2765., L.E. 2765 et 2767.]. [April 1867]. Large octavo. Quarter dark brown morocco with textured brown cloth boards, previous owner's initials ("M.G.") gilt to upper, spine in compartments with rules and titling gilt, marbled endpapers. 1f.

Slightly foxed; first signature slightly split; occasional small tears; impression occasionally weak; publisher's handstamp to lower right corner of title. . First edition. Hopkinson 61A considers this to be the earliest printing. Collector William Crawford, however, identified what he believed to be an earlier issue, distinguished by typographical differences to the title page (Verdi's name in a smaller typeface and the absence of the lithographer's name to the lower right corner) and the absence of the printer's imprint to the foot of the first page of music. "Don Carlos has of late become one of the best-loved and most respected of VerdiÂ’s operas... Verdi dedicated to the work some of his greatest dramatic music. One need think only of the magnificent series of confrontational duets that form such a great part of the drama... several of these break decisively with traditional models, forging for themselves a vital new relationship between musical and dramatic progress. It is for such moments that Don Carlos will be remembered and treasured." Roger Parker in Grove online

        Haarlocke.

      O. O. u. D.. Ein blondes Haarbüschel, mit rosafarbenem Faden kreisförmig zur Locke gebunden, montiert auf Echtheitszertifikat von 1867. 8vo. Unter Passepartout kaschiert.. Die Provenienz der Locke lässt sich über die beimontierten Echtheits- bzw. Verkaufsbestätigungen für das erste Jahrhundert lückenlos nachvollziehen: Ursprünglich im Besitz des Weimarer Bibliothekars und Großherzoglichen Rats Theodor Kräuter (1790-1856), seit 1805 Schreiber in der Herzoglichen Bibliothek und ab 1811 Goethes Privatsekretär; aus dessen Besitz übergegangen an seinen Neffen, den Weimarer Juristen und Schriftsteller Robert Keil (1826-96), der auf seinem blindgeprägten Briefpapier eigenhändig bestätigt und besiegelt: "Die inliegenden Haare sind Haare Schiller's und gehörten zum Nachlaß des verstorbenen Bibliothekars Raths Dr. Theodor Kräuter hier, des ehemaligen Privatsekretärs Goethe's. Dies bezeugt / der Neffe Kräuter's / Rechtsanwalt Dt. Robert Keil. / Weimar 20. Apr. 1867". Anlass für die Ausstellung dieses Zertifikats war wohl die Überlassung der Reliquie an das Weimarer Schillerhaus, dessen Kustos ein entfernter Verwandter Keils war, der Weimarer Kunsthändler Eduard Lobe. Dieser verkaufte die Locke gerade neun Monate später an den geschichtsinteressierten Chicagoer Juristen und Unternehmer Thomas Barbour Bryan (1828-1906): "Die Haarlocke von Schiller habe ich heute Herrn T. B. Bryan käuflich überlassen, und bezeuge hiermit, daß sie echt ist. Weimar den 23. Januar 1868 / Eduard Lobe / Custos des Schillerhauses". Bryan, der sich insbesondere als Förderer der Chicagoer Weltausstellung 1893 bleibende Verdienste erwarb, war bereits früher als Freund der historischen Devotionalie hervorgetreten: 1860 stellte er in seiner Galerie "Bryan Hall" das von G. P. A. Healy angefertigte Portrait Abraham Lincolns aus; 1864 ließ er ein lithographisches Faksimile von Lincolns Emanzipations-Proklamation anfertigen, das er dem Präsidenten auch zur Prüfung übersandte. - Erworben aus österreichischem Adelsbesitz.

        Drawings of Parquetry Flooring [WITH 50 PARQUETRY PATTERN SAMPLES]

      Manchester: Ludwig Oppenheimer, 1867. First edition. Softcover. g to vg. Quarto. Unpaginated. [37] leaves. Original stiff wrappers. Preliminary text leaf pasted on inside of front cover. This rare and striking trade catalog from Ludwig Oppenheimer, a manufacturer of mosaic tiles and parquet flooring in Manchester, contains 17 mounted 4 7/8 x 6" (image 2 6/8 x 2 6/8") parquetry pattern samples reproduced in chromolithography, and 20 bound in leaves (9 6/8 x 7 6/8") featuring 33 parquetry pattern samples in various sizes (also reproduced in chromolithography). The catalog was designed as a self mailer, and the hand-written address of James Russell*, an architect living in Glasgow to whom it had been sent, and three cancelled stamps are still on the back cover. Moderate shelf wear and minor and sporadic closed tears along edges of wrappers. Previous owner's stamp (Architect James Russell) on upper margin of text leaf, and at verso of each plate. Wrappers in overall good, interior in good+ to very good, samples in near fine to fine condition. *James Russell was a pupil of Robert Scott's Glasgow Architectural Academy and invented the mortsafe in 1815 at what must have been an early age. He was, at least for a time, architect and surveyor to Sir John Maxwell's Pollok estate, laying out 'the landscape garden feuing plan' of Kinninghouse in 1833. Russell practised from Three Mile House, Paisley Road, Govan. In 1845 letters for him were to be left at 19 New Bridge Street, Glasgow but by 1850 he had taken an office at 51 Miller Street, Glasgow. This was soon given up, Russell practising thereafter solely from Three Mile House (as indicated by the address written on the back cover of the trade catalog). In the 'Architects Engineers and Building Trades Directory' 1868, he is described as having compiled a work on 'Ancient Ecclesiastical Architecture, embracing Glasgow Cathedral and Paisley Abbey'.

      Wittenberg : Zimmermann'sche Buchhandlung : 1867.. zweite, völlig neu ausgearbeitete Auflage : 5 Bände 8 Octav, Halbleder mit Kartonage der Zeit, Frakturschrift :. Richard Rothe (geb. 28. Januar 1799 in Posen; gest. 20. August 1867 in Heidelberg) war ein evangelischer Theologe. Richard Rothe wollte den Bereichen Religion und Kirche die Zuständigkeit für die Sittlichkeit entziehen und diese sollte in einem sittlichen Kulturstaat zum Tragen kommen. So wäre die Institution der Kirche in einem christlichen Kulturstaat aufgegangen. Dieser Kulturstaat stellte sich nach Rothe als "absolute Theokratie" dar, aus der das "vollendete Reich Gottes" entstehen würde. Dieser Gedankengang ging aus Rothes spekulativer Theologie hervor, die an kein Dogma gebunden und die von der herrschenden Kirchenlehre abgewichen war. Nach dem Beispiel Friedrich Schleiermachers unterteilte Rothe die Theologie in die spekulative, historische und praktische Theologie. Die von Rothe entfaltete spekulative Theologie ließ sich von dem Inhalt der Bibel und einem frommen Gottesgefühl leiten. Da dieses fromme Gottesgefühl aber in den christlichen Kirchen unterschiedlich stark ausgeprägt war, konnte diese spekulative Theologie nach der inhaltlich protestantisch bestimmten Frömmigkeit nur in einem protestantischen Kulturstaat Anwendung finden. Die Bedeutung der Theologie Rothes besteht heute darin, dass das "Gottesgefühl der Frömmigkeit" in den Gottesgedanken der gesamten spekulativen Theologie überführt wurde. Richard Rothe war im 19. Jahrhundert eine wichtige Person des liberalen Protestantismus. Die Auffassung Rothes, die Kirche solle in einem sittlichen Kulturstaat aufgehen, wurde damals von vielen Protestanten vehement vertreten. Diese Überzeugung passt heute nicht mehr in das "Grundprinzip der Moderne", das u. a. von einer Autonomie des Individuums ausgeht, sie ist daher nicht mehr schulbildend. - Einige Theologen der Neuzeit schließen sich dem Gedanken Rothes noch einmal an, das Christentum solle außerhalb der Kirche bestehen, da sich das moderne Christentum von einer dogmatisch-kirchlichen zu einer ethischen Ausrichtung geändert habe.

The red spine label with a scuff mark and the black label with a small tear at the bottom edge. Also five specks of roller spray from paint on the front cover. Still a handsome, outstanding copy.

        NARRATIVE OF CAPTURE, PRISON LIFE AND ESCAPE DURING THE WAR OF THE REBELLION IN 1864

      [San Francisco?]: Regimental Press, 9th U.S. Infantry, [ca. 1867?]. 37pp. Original printed wrappers with paper backstrip. Textblock sewn, but not attached to wrappers, likely as issued. Small chip, minor toning to wrappers. With a couple small emendations, likely authorial. Very good. An exceptionally rare personal memoir of Lieut. Morris Foote's experiences in the Civil War, printed on the regimental press of his unit, probably while the 9th Infantry was stationed in San Francisco. Foote was promoted to lieutenant in 1867, and since he is noted as such on the front wrapper, the publication must date between then and 1883, when he was promoted. Since Foote served in Alaska from 1867 to 1871, and the regiment was serving under much more rugged conditions in the Dakotas from 1872, the most likely point of publication in circa 1867 in San Francisco. The handsome production and superior typography would also argue for garrison and not field printing. Supposedly twelve copies were printed, but only two copies are located in OCLC, at New-York Historical and the New York State Historical Association. The original manuscript for the work resides at the Huntington Library. The first copy we've ever seen for sale, this was found with other Foote material and is likely his personal copy. In a well-written narrative, Foote describes his experiences as a member of a New York volunteer regiment during the Civil War. With other units, his regiment occupied the town of Plymouth, North Carolina, at the mouth of the Roanoke River, in the winter of 1863-64. In April 1864, Confederate forces stormed the position, and Foote and others were made prisoner and taken briefly to Libby Prison in Richmond, but were quickly transfered southward, eventually to Charleston, South Carolina and then Columbia, South Carolina. Foote escaped with another officer from the poorly guarded prison there in late November 1864. He describes their journey to the Carolina coast in vivid detail. The two fugitives were aided at every turn by slaves, and after many adventures and hardships, reached the coast several weeks later and were picked up by the U.S. Navy. A remarkable and very rare narrative. OCLC 58768061.

        Autograph letter signed "J. Belval" to unidentified correspondent

      3 pp. of a bifolium. 12mo. Dated Neuilly, Sunday, March 3 [1867?]. In black ink on personal stationery with embossed monogram printed in green at head. In French (with translation). An interesting letter in which Belval mentions no fewer than three important composers (Giuseppe Verdi, Félicien David, Hector Berlioz), three singers associated with the Paris Opéra (Louis-Henri Obin, Armand Castelmary, and Pauline Guéymard-Lauters), and the premiere of a new Verdi opera. Because Belval had the flu, he was unable to sing Bertram in a recent performance of Meyerbeer's Robert le Diable; Castelmary, a bass "of the third rank," had to replace him. Belval will sing Meyerbeer's Les Huguenots the following day. He has also asked Guéymard-Lauters to secure two seats for his correspondent for the first performance of Verdi's opera, because he has heard, via Obin, that the composer does not want a public dress rehearsal. Finally, he wishes to enlist the expertise of David and Berlioz regarding some musical matter. "My friend Obin told me in effect that Verdi did not wish to hear talk of a dress rehearsal before the public, even a chosen one. But it has been twelve years that I have heard the same alarms with regard to every new opera. Therefore do not despair yet... I have asked Madame Gueymard to get herself signed up for two numbered seats at the theatre for the first performance. They are intended for you, in case the public is not admitted to the dress rehearsal... In principal, the choice of two composers as experts would only reassure me by half, if I had not myself influenced Mr. Félicien David to decide to accept the task, and if in time Mr. Berlioz, to whom I recounted the affair, did not agree with me. Obin went to speak to them both; he could enlighten them much better than I about the disproportion of the two roles... " Slightly worn; creased at folds. . Belval, a French bass, "studied at the Paris Conservatoire and made his début in 1846 at Antwerp. After singing in Toulouse, Lyons, the Hague, Ghent and Brussels, he was engaged at the Paris Opéra, making his début in 1855 as Marcel in Les Huguenots. His roles included Bertram (Robert le diable), Balthazar (La favorite), Walter Furst (Guillaume Tell) and Zaccharie (Le prophéte). He took part in many premiéres and created Gargantua in Labarre?'s Pantagruel (1855), the Count of Poitou in Halévy?'s La magicienne (1858), Soloman in Gounod?'s La reine de Saba (1862), Archbishop Turpin in Mermet?'s Roland à Roncevaux (1864), Don Pédro in L?'Africaine (1865) and King Claudius in Thomas?' Hamlet (1868)... he made his last appearance at the Opéra in 1875 as Cardinal Brogni in La Juive, at the public inauguration of the Palais Garnier... His voice was a deep bass, ample in size and dark in tone." Elizabeth Forbes in Grove online. The Verdi opera to which Belval refers is probably Don Carlos, which premiered at the Paris Opéra on March 11, 1867. Louis-Henri Obin, Pauline Guéymard-Lauters, and Armand Castelmary created, respectively, the roles of Philip II, Eboli, and the monk (Charles V) for the first performance.

        An album of 36 watercolours of European megaliths.

      [Vienna], 1867 - Oblong folio, 36 drawings in pen, brown and grey ink and wash, average size 280 x 400 mm (18) and 280 x 230 mm (18), laid down on larger sheets, thirteen blank sheets unused at end; signed and dated 'A. v. Perger 1867' on ms titlepage, ms section titles and indication of sites under each drawing as well as short title at foot of most drawings; bound in contemporary half vellum with marbled sides, spine with ink title 'Dolmen'. £14,500An album with 36 fine and expressive watercolours of megaliths, including sites in the Riesengebirge (Southern Saxony and Northern Bohemia) (6), Poitou (1), Normandy (1), Brittany (5), Channel Islands (1), England (11), Wales (1), Scotland (3), and Sweden (5), plus a drawing of a stone circle known as Kalah i Darab in Persia.The drawings are loosely grouped in sections, including tumuli, menhirs (single standing stones), stone circles, rocking stones, dolmens (burial chambers made up of two or more upright stones supporting a horizontal stone), and finally monuments with traces of human decoration. Most of the drawings have human figures for scale. These categories, as Dr Glyn Davich pointed out in his Walter Neurath Lectures, Megaliths in History (1972), were only grouped together under the names of 'megalith' in the mid-nineteenth century and the first general book on the subject in English did not appear until 1872 with the publication of James Fergusson's Rude Stone Monuments in all Counties: their Age and Use. Coincidentally the date of this album's compilation by Perger is the same year as Henry James's Plans and Photographs of Stonehenge (1867) which John Michell sees as portending 'the inevitable death of the art of antiquarian illustration' (Megalithomania, p 39).The British Isles are given prominence in this album with fifteen locations depicted. These include the great rock, known as The Tolmen, in the parish of Constantine in Cornwall (its length according to Borlase was thirty-three feet, its weight estimated at 750 tons; it was destroyed by quarrymen in 1869); the Buckstone near Monmouth, which was dislodged by vandals in 1885 and then replaced and secured by an iron pin; the Logan Stone near Castle Treryn in Cornwall (dislodged from and then returned to its precarious perch in 1824); the Cheesewring in Cornwall; an unspecified dolmen in Cornwall; a dolmen at the borders of the river Tamar; views of Stonehenge; the stone circle at Avebury; and the Parliament Rock at Dartmoor. There are illustrations of three stones in Cornwall with holes: Tolvan Stone, Men-an-tol, and Rosemoddress. Then there is Robin Hood's Stride in Derbyshire and a dolmen in the same county known as Wayland's Smithy - Perger's view shows the chambered long barrow unexcavated. There are breathtaking views of the largest stone circle in Scotland, Ring of Brodgar, on Orkney, here incorrectly identified as the Standing Stones of Stennes (these two separate sites are a mile from each other). There are also the stone circle at Lochbuie on the Isle of Mull and the two cromlechs at Plas Newydd on Anglesey.In France we have a view of hundreds of standing stones at Carnac, and an avenue of dolmens at Roche Briande. There is a fine view of the famous menhir at Locmariaquer, the highest standing stone of Europe, broken into four pieces; views of the dolmen at Champigny-le-Sec in Poitou, a dolmen near Belz, an unidentified menhir, and the Stones of Naines. In Sweden we have illustrations of the gigantic stones at Asby and Ulrika, an unidentified tumulus and an unidentified stone circle with a menhir in the centre. There is a fine view of the graves and bautasteinar (memorial stones) at Hjortehammar (province of Blekinge).With the exception of an impressive dolmen and menhir at Podgorzyn (then Giersdorf) the sites in the Riesengebirge are all geological stone formations rather than man-made megalithic monuments. We have views of the rocking stone of Szklarska-Poreba (then Schreiberau), the 'Hat and Bread' stone in Przesieka (th
