        THE THROWN ELM (Original Handwritten Manuscript of this Hardy Poem, a Working Copy Heavily Revised)

      Hardy, Thomas. "THE THROWN ELM & SHE." Original handwritten manuscript of Hardy's poem, one page, 4to, (n.p., n.d.) Eighteen lines of verse, written in ink on fine paper, titled at the top: "The Thrown Elm" with "& she?" added in pencil. An excellent Hardy poem dealing with the theme of a love which is lost to time, using the age-rings of a finally fallen Elm tree as a conceit, beginning: "When you put on that inmost ring / She, like you, was a little thing: / When your circles reached their fourth, / Scarce she knew life's south from north. . . ." Nine of the eighteen lines show revision, some of these alterations are extensive. Lightly and uniformly faded and toned (from a previous framing), but essentially in Near Fine condition. Housed in a new green folding case. According to Purdy (p. 255) this is the manuscript "given by Hardy himself to Mrs. St. John Hornby." C. H. St. John Hornby (1867-1946) was the founder of the famous Ashendene Press in 1895 and served as chair of the Hardy memorial committee after the author's death. It is an earlier draft with alterations and alternative readings. The final version was first published in WINTER WORDS (1928) under the title, "The Felled Elm and She." Hardy routinely destroyed his working drafts; we've only seen a handful such as this, in commerce or at auction, in the last thirty years.. Unbound. Near Fine.

In Nietzsche's day, to be a philologist meant that one studied ancient languages, texts, history, philosophy, art, and even archeology in an attempt to recapture and understand the meaning of Greece and Rome. Nietzsche was a prize student, first at the University of Bonn and then in Leipzig, and as such he published several papers in scholarly journals All but one of these essays appeared in the Rheinisches Museum für Philologie which was-and remains today-a respected journal in the field of classical studies. The single exception was The So-Called Contest of Homer and Hesiod which appeared in Volume I of the Acta Societatis Philologae, a compendium organized in 1870 by Ritschl that published just four volumes before its demise in 1875.Four of the philological articles were written in German and four in Latin. At least one of the articles, On the Sources of Diogenes Laertius, was originally composed in German and then translated into the required Latin. The German articles were signed at the end either as 'Friedrich Nietzsche.' or 'F. Nietzsche.' In the Latin articles, the author was credited on the first page of each as 'Fridericus Nietzsche'. .In later years, Nietzsche was understandably dismissive of his philological works. He once wrote to Georg Brandes that "there are of course, also Philologica by me but that need not concern either of us anymore." Certainly this was true in 1888, but twenty years earlier when these articles were published, they were of major personal importance. Nietzsche's mentor Ritschl used the first four articles as justification for the recommendation that resulted in Nietzsche's spectacularly early appointment to Basel as professor at the age of twenty-four. Ritschl then went further and allowed the articles to be accepted as the dissertation requirement for Nietzsche's doctorate, which was conferred without oral examination on 23 March 1869 All of his philological works were published prior to the appearance of The Birth of Tragedy (January 1872) except for the last article, the second half of The Florentine Manuscript concerning Homer and Hesiod, dated August of 1872, which appeared in February of 1873. It was the last piece of traditional classical scholarship that Nietzsche published.(Schaberg, The Nietzsche Canon, pp. 8-14) half-leather with marbled boards. Rebacked with the original spines laid down. Spine with gilt lettering and decorations. Each volume numbered and dated. Each volume with a single, pale blue ink stamp at the bottom of each TP: "Jan Six Instituut". Overall, a very pretty set of these early and important works by Nietzsche.

        PRESTUPLENIE I NAKAZANIE [CRIME AND PUNISHMENT]

      St Petersburg: Bazunov Prats and Veidenshtraukh 1867 - First edition. Two volumes bound in contemporary quarter Russian roan, over marbled boards with speckled edges. Wanting half titles. Both volumes neatly rebacked with some wear to the corners. A stain to the title page of volume one and occasional spotting throughout. Final three leaves of vol. I remargined and possibly supplied from another copy. Light marginal stain to title of vol. II, but text generally clean. Overall a very presentable copy of a notoriously difficult book to find in acceptable condition. The first edition of the author's second and most famous novel, following the juvenile novel, Poor Folk, by some twenty years. It was originally serialised in the literary journal, Russkii Vestnik (The Russian Messenger) in twelve monthly instalments during 1866, which accounts for the words "izdanie isravlennoe" (revised edition) on the title pages of the first edition. An epilogue was added at the insistence of the publishers who found the ending unacceptable to the general public. First editions are rarely available in commerce, with only five examples sold at auction in the last forty years. This is due in part to the fact that the paper stock used was of poor quality so the copies which do survive are seldom seen without significant staining or damage.

This continuous series by Beadle & Chadwick, of which this is the 6th example, ran through 1881 & was first issued in 1860 [none in 1861 or 1863]; it has the distinction of being the first ever of such a nature, and gave rise to the many iterations today's fans so much enjoy, as well as laboriously study [can you say, "Fantasy Baseball"?]. All these early guides now quite rare- none of this series at auction these last 30 years, and OCLC shows but one listing [7th ed] for the 9 editions up to 1870. Binding - Nr Fine.

        The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, and other Sketches

      New York: C. H. Webb,, 1867. Small octavo. Original dark red cloth over bevelled boards, gilt lettered spine, front cover lettered in gilt with gilt stamp of jumping frog, brown endpapers; preserved in a red cloth chemise and red quarter morocco slipcase. Spine and covers dulled, tail of spine chipped, head of spine bumped and nicked, a little wear to corners, a few leaves showing a little marginal spotting or signs of handling. First edition, first issue, of Mark Twain's first book; a very good unrestored copy. "Copies were bound simultaneously in green, terra cotta, dark brown, lavender, blue deep purple, maroon and red cloth" (MacDonnell, 'The Primary First Editions of Mark Twain', in Firsts, Vol. 8, no. 7/8). Some copies have the gilt stamp of the leaping frog in the centre of the front cover, but priority of issue had not been established; in addition our copy has all of the points of a first issue, as delineated by BAL. With a distinguished provenance, inscribed on a preliminary blank:"Alice Baldwin, Gibsonton, Penna [i.e. Pennsylvania]". This is the mother of the writer Thomas Beer (1889-1940), to whom the book would have passed, author of The Mauve Decade: American Life at the End of the Nineteenth Century (1926), a best seller that "ridiculed some of the great figures of the time yet looked back nostalgically" (DAB). "Mark Twain wrote his story of the jumping frog... at the invitation of Artemus Ward (Charles Farrar Browne), his friend and the most popular American humorist of the day, to help fill out a volume of humorous sketches that Ward was editing. Fortuitously, and fortunately for Twain, the frog story arrived too late for inclusion in Ward's book; it was published instead as 'Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog' in the New York Saturday Press on 18 November 1865. It was soon reprinted in newspapers and comic periodicals throughout the nation, was pirated by Beadle's Dime Books, and was later collected with a new title in The Celebrated Jumping Frof of Calaveras County and other Sketches (1867). This humorous short story brought Twain his first popular acclaim and has proven to be his first literary masterpiece" (W. Craig Turner in The Mark Twain Encyclopaedia, 1993, pp. 133-35).

        [Broadside]: Biographical Sketch of the Late Princess Achille Murat

      Tallahassee, Florida: [no publisher. 1867]. First edition. Large folio broadside. Measuring 13.5" x 21.5". Text in four columns with a black border. Old folds (perhaps as mailed), tiny tears, very faint dampstain at the edges of the center horizontal fold, but still a beautiful, near fine example of this previously unknown broadside. The text is signed in print as being by "Ln-, Tallahassee, Florida." Note on the verso in the hand of the recipient: "Obituary notice of my cousin Princess Achille Murat, By Mrs. Long of Tallahassee, Florida." Inscribed in the top margin by the author: "Mrs. Randall - Baltimore - With the compliments of the writer. E.C.L." and also with several corrections in her hand.Memorial address for Princess Murat, the great grandniece of George Washington, who started life as Catherine Daingerfield Willis Gray, born in Virginia in 1803. She was the first American woman to become a European princess, having married Prince Achille Murat, Napoleon's nephew, in 1826. Prince Achille sought asylum in the U.S. and settled in Florida where he became the owner of a large plantation, and eventually became the Mayor of Tallahassee. He also served in Florida's militia in the Second Seminole War. He met his future wife while traveling with Lafayette on his Grand Tour of the United States in 1824. They later married and she settled with him in Tallahassee. When her husband in died in 1847, she inherited his large estate, and later acquired an additional cotton plantation.During the Civil War she nursed wounded Confederate soldiers. Upon her death in 1867, her friend Ellen Call Long (1825-1905) wrote this obituary, the first half of which deals with Catherine and her life during her marriage to the Prince. The second half is entirely devoted to her life after his death, mentioning her solicitude towards her slaves before, during, and after the War, and her other humanitarian and charitable activities. She was also instrumental in spearheading the raising of funds in Florida for the purchase of Mount Vernon by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. The author of the obituary, Ellen Call Long was "...the first white child born in Tallahassee," and like her father, who was a two-time territorial governor, she was a staunch Unionist until Florida seceded. She was the future author of Florida Breezes: or Florida, New and Old (Jacksonville, 1883), wherein she used a portion of this text in her account of Prince and Princess Murat. According to Margaret Louise Chapman, in her introduction to the 1962 University of Florida reprint of Florida Breezes: "Ellen Call Long would have been a remarkable woman in any age. In her own era, she was truly exceptional."The text was later reprinted in the magazine Galaxy (June, 1875), and subsequently in 1909 by the Florida Historical Quarterly, and also as a 12 page pamphlet in 1931. However, this 1867 first printing is entirely unknown and not otherwise recorded. Not in OCLC or Servies. A Bibliography of Florida (1993). .

        Die Entwicklung der Carcinome (41: pp.470-523, 2 Taf.; 55: pp.67-159, 5 Taf.).

      . Virch. Arch. path. Anat., 41+55. - Berlin, Verlag von Georg Reimer, 1867, 8°, VI, 591, (1) pp., 13 Tafeln; 1872, 8°, VI, 538 pp., 20 Tafeln; 2 Halbleinenbände.. Frist Edition! - Heinrich Wilhelm Gottfried von Waldeyer (1836-1921) "confirmed the work of Thiersch on the epithelial origin of cancer, disproving Virchow's theory. So great was the authority of the latter that it was not until the appearance of the second of the above papers that Virchow's error was finally recognized". - - "Die bedeutendste Leistung Waldeyers als Pathologe aber ist seine in 2 Teilen erschienene Arbeit zur Histogenese der Karzinome 1867 und 1872. Mit dieser Arbeit wird Virchows Lehre von der bindegewebigen Genese des Krebses endgültig zu Grabe getragen, nachdem schon C. Thiersch in Erlangen und V. Cornil in Paris entsprechende Befunde vorgelegt hatten. Unmissverständlich sagt Waldeyer, dass man bisher nicht in der Lage gewesen sei, den Begriff Karzinom scharf zu definieren. Er setzt dagegen: Man könne sehr wohl eine positive Definition geben, eine Trennung in Karzinome und Kankroide sei überflüssig, "da die ersteren ganz dieselbe Epithelialentwicklung haben wie die so genannten Cancroide". Im ersten Teil der Arbeit (1867) erläutert dies Waldeyer am Beispiel des Mammakarzinoms und zeigt, dass an den mit gewucherten Epithelien angefüllten Acini die Basalmembran verloren geht, wie dies auch schon Cornil betont hatte. Gleiches gilt für den Magenkrebs: - - 'Nachdem, was ich gesehen, wuchern die degenerierten Drüsen nach Durchbruch der Muscularis mucosae sehr schnell in die leicht ausdehnbare lockere Submucosa hinein' - - Cornil und Waldeyer sind damit die Ersten, die erkennen, dass alle Magenkrebse von den drüsigen, d.h. den epithelialen Bestandteilen der Magenschleimhaut ausgehen. Waldeyers Schlussfolgerung ist eindeutig: - - 'Ich fasse somit das Carcinom im wesentlichen als eine epitheliale Neubildung auf und meine, dass es primär nur da entsteht, wo wir echte epitheliale Bildungen haben.' - - Im 2. Teil der Arbeit 1872 werden die Belege über die Herkunft der Karzinome erweitert. Jetzt stehen ihm 203 Fälle, vorwiegend Operationspräparate seiner klinischen Kollegen, zur Verfügung. Die Waldeyer-Lehre setzt sich in den folgenden Jähren mehr und mehr durch. Nur Virchow distanziert sich nie ausdrücklich von seiner Vorstellung der bindegewebigen Krebsgenese. " Georg Dhom, Gesch. Histopath., p.325

        The Smallest Boat that ever crossed the Atlantic Ocean!

      Ingersoll's Great American Boat and Oar Bazaar, c., New York 1867 - Broadside, lithographed on fine paper, 28 x 21cms; small defect in blank margin, short tears at old folds. Rare and fragile broadside celebrating an amazing short-handed crossing of the Atlantic. Captain Hudson accompanied only by his friend Fitch and his dog Fanny crossed the Atlantic in just 35 days in a steel-hulled 28-foot boat built as a miniature fully-rigged ship, just three feet wide. The epic crossing was long discounted as an exaggerated advertising stunt for Ingersoll's boat-selling business but recent research has proved Hudson's amazing claim and it has been rehabilitated as one of the epic early short-handed voyages.The Red White and Blue sailed first to Margate and then crossed the channel and entered the Seine, becoming as this charming poster proclaims, 'the first full rigged ship that ever entered Paris from a foreign port; upon her entry into Paris, Capt. Hudson received a letter from the emperor Napoleon, appointing an interview, whereupon the Red White and Blue was accorded an honorary place in the grand Exposition'.

Auf Untersatz montiert.- Sammlung Bernhard Funck, München, nicht bei Lugt.- Obwohl die Datierung auf der Zeichnung durch Beschneidung nicht vollständig ist, kann man mit Sicherheit sagen, dass sie zwischen 1867 und 1869 entstanden sein muß, da Klose zu dieser Zeit Kleinasien bereiste. Wilhelm Klose besuchte von 1846 bis 1851 die Münchner Akademie und ließ sich in seinen frühen Jahren von dem Künstler Rottmannn beeinflussen. Im Laufe seines Lebens unternahm er sehr viele Studienreisen u. a. in die Alpengegenden, nach Italien, Griechenland und Kleinasien. Da er durch seine Wohlhabenheit finanziell völlig unabhängig war, beschickte er nur selten öffentliche Ausstellungen.

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

      Charles Scribner & Company, New York 1867 - (17 x 12 7/8 inches). Hand-coloured lithographed frontispiece and 15 hand-coloured lithographed plates, coloured by Mrs. Badger. Publisher's full black morocco, upper cover with broad floral gilt borders and gilt lettered title, rear cover with floral border in blind, spine in six compartments with a repeat decoration in gilt, gilt inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, gilt edges 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 handcoloured plates, coloured by Mrs. Badger over very light lithographed lines and without captions (thus giving the plates the appearance of original watercolours), 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: Hard Cover]
