        Don Carlos Grand Opéra en Cinq Actes Représenté sur le Théatre Impérial de l'Opéra. Poeme de M.M. Méry & C. du Locle... Partition, in-8o, Piano et Chant, net: 20f... Accomt. de Piano par E. Vauthrot Chef du Chant à l'Opéra

      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. (lithographic title illustration by Trinocq after Cravzat including names of Verdi operas entwined around a set of arched columns), 1f. (named cast list for the premiere performance at the Paris Opéra, on March 11, 1867 and index), 359 pp. Text in French. Lithographed. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, bumped and stained; hinges tender. 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.

        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

Grant's approval was, in effect, forwarded to himself!Three days later, on August 12, 1867, because of disagreement over reconstruction plans, President Andrew Johnson suspended Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton from his position and commissioned Ulysses S. Grant as ad interim Secretary of War. On January 24, 1868, a day after the Senate refused to concur with Johnson's removal of Stanton, Ad Interim Secretary of War U.S. Grant informed President Johnson that he will vacate his post and return it to Stanton. In February, Johnson formally removed Stanton and the House of Representatives voted to impeach Johnson for violating the Tenure of Office Act, passed over Johnson's veto.BackgroundOne of the first U.S. military posts in Arizona Territory, Fort Goodwin was established in June 1864 by California Volunteers to provide protection for settlers in the Gila Valley. The post was named for John N. Goodwin, the first Territorial Governor of Arizona. In the spring of 1866, the California Volunteers were relieved by two companies of the 14th U.S. Infantry and later that year, the post?s designation was changed from Fort Goodwin to Camp Goodwin. Gen. Grant's order here offered is dated August 9, 1867.Published in ""The Citizen,"" a Tucson, Arizona, newspaper, on October 28, 1871, a report issued by the U.S. Grand Jury for Pima County. In part, ""We find that ... during the time the Apache Indians have been fed under the name of prisoners of war or otherwise at Camp Apache, Camp Goodwin and Camp Grant, in this Territory, they were not disarmed or controlled in any way - drawing their rations on ration days, on the simple promise that they had come as friends, and would remain where the commanding officer would indicate, and if not they would be considered as hostile Indians ... That while being fed at Camp Goodwin a part of Apache Indians left that camp and stole stock from near Tucson ... That while being fed at Camp Goodwin a party of Apache Indians left the camp and killed Col. Stone, Deputy Collector of Customs, and five men, capturing the United States mail, on the 6th day of October, 1869 ... We find that the hostile bands of Indians in this Territory are led by many different Chiefs who have generally adopted the policy of Cachise [sic]... That the rations issued at these camps to the Indians have frequently been insufficient for their support and unjustly distributed, sometimes bones being issued instead of meat; that one Quartermaster of the United States said he made a surplus of 12,000 pounds of corn in issuing rations to the Indians of Camp Goodwin ..."""

        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.
