Hopkinson considers the present issue to be the earliest printing of the work. Crawford has, 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; 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, to a libretto by Joseph Méry and Camille du Locle after Friedrich von Schiller's dramatic poem Don Carlos Infant von Spanien, was first performed in Paris at the Opéra on March 11, 1867. "Don Carlos has of late become one of the best-loved and most respected of Verdi'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.

        Handbook of the Sphygmograph : Being a Guide to its use in clinical Research.

      London : Robert Hardwicke, 192 Picadilly, 1867, kl.8, VI, (2), 83, (1) pp., 3 Taf., 13 Fig., orig. Leinenband. First Edition of the "Handbook of the Sphygmograph : Being a Guide to its use in clinical research. To which is appended a Lecture delivered at the Royal College of Physicians on the 29th of March 1867 on the Mode and Duration of the Contraction of Heart in Health and Disease"."The first account of the use of the sphygmograph in England was published in The Lancet during 1865. It was part of a report of the proceedings of a meeting in London and mentions that Dr Francis E. Anstie was the first English physician to use the sphygmograph, which was described as 'an exquisitely designed instrument... of precision and remarkable beauty'. It goes on to say that Dr Burdon-Sanderson was also using the device (Anon. 1865). On 17 February 1866, another report appeared in the same journal (Walton 1866) in which abnormal pulse recordings taken with Marey's instrument from the right radial artery were compared with the normal tracings from the left radial artery. The differences between the sphygmograms were attributed to an aneurysm of the right axillary artery. This appears to have been the first report of the diagnostic use of the device in England. Later, in March 1866, the British Medical Journal published an extensive paper in two parts by Balthazar W. Foster of Birmingham. Foster later published a monograph describing the use of Marey's sphygmograph in England. The conclusion of Foster's monograph contains a brief but interesting exchange of letters between Foster and The Lancet over who really introduced the device to England. As we have noted, Anstie appears to have been the first to use the device, although Sir John Burdon Sanderson may also have been using it at the same time. Anstie himself subsequently published several articles on the sphygmograph and the correspondence appeared in The Lancet on 26 May and 9 June 1866.In 1867 J. B. BURDON-SANDERSON (1828-1905) published several reports on the sphygmograph and a monograph entitled 'Handbook of the Sphygmograph' (Burdon-Sanderson 1867)." N.H.

John Herschel R[oyal] B[engal] E[ngineers] . who is very desirous of an introduction to you." Herschel also regrets that he will not be able to attend a soiree, for "my state of health is such as to preclude altogether my coming up to London." In addition to being a military engineer and surveyor, the younger John Herschel (1837-1921) was, like his father and grandfather, a noted astronomer.

After his death, a cult has arisen around him in which he is thanked for miraculous cures. He practiced as a doctor in the Pena area of Lisbon, specializing in the treatment of tuberculosis. In 1897, he was poisoned by an unknown person possibly due to jealousy of his popularity amongst the medical community. In 1904, a statue of him was erected in Lisbon. This statue has become the centre of a quasi religious cult in which the spirit Dr Sousa Martins is believed able to assist in cures.****** [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

After his death, a cult has arisen around him in which he is thanked for miraculous cures. He practiced as a doctor in the Pena area of Lisbon, specializing in the treatment of tuberculosis. In 1897, he was poisoned by an unknown person possibly due to jealousy of his popularity amongst the medical community. In 1904, a statue of him was erected in Lisbon. This statue has become the centre of a quasi religious cult in which the spirit Dr Sousa Martins is believed able to assist in cures.****** Good .

Recent purple half morocco and marbled paper boards, new endpapers, retaining the original front free endpaper (see below). Spine lettered and dated in gilt (with the title misspelled as "Der Verbote"). Contemporary ownership inscription of "J. Most" - Johann Most (1846–1906 in blue pencil, a second inscription to title page of April 1869 issue, and occasional marginalia and underlining to the text. Contents generally clean with occasional spotting and dampstains, some stab-holes visible at gutters, a few issues trimmed in the binding process, those printed on inferior paper stock fragile at the margins and with a few short tears and more toning than others, 1 full leaf (April 1868) and 1 half-leaf (January 1870) cut away and 4 other instances of excised portions clipped from the text by a previous owner (March 1866, pp. 47–8; March 1867, pp. 43–4; March 1869, p. 43–4; March 1870, pp. 37–8); a rare survival. First edition of Marx's formal announcements, both signed and unsigned, of the publication of the first volume of his magnum opus, Das Kapital, in the important and uncommon revolutionary socialist journal Der Vorbote, from the library of the German radical journalist and agitator Johann Most, who played a part in Capital's publication history and with whom Marx had a turbulent relationship. When the first volume of Capital was finally published on 14 September 1867, Marx and Engels "set about breaking through the silence of the German press" (Draper I 1867.1) by placing notices in various international papers, with limited success. In the following months Engels wrote many reviews, only some of which were accepted for publication, and while eventually advertisements and extracts would appear in the Beobachter, Bee Hive, and the Courrier Français, among a small number of others, by the start of 1868 "Capital is still getting the silent treatment in the bourgeois press [although] both wings of the German workers' movement give it considerable publicity" (Draper 1868.2). Marx had written to the founder and editor of Der Vorbote, Johann Philipp Becker (1809–1886), in April 1867 to pre-emptively ask for his help; as a result, the first advance announcement appeared in Der Vorbote's issue of the same month, with two further pre-publication announcements printed in the June and July issues. The official announcement of Capital's publication was printed in the September issue, with successive notices printed in October and November. These were some of the earliest notices to be printed after Capital's publication and are all included in this volume. Der Vorbote, published in 72 monthly issues from 1866 to 1871, was the official organ of the German-speaking section of the First International, edited by Becker and with highly valuable contributions from most of the major figures of 19th-century international communism such as Bebel, Engels, Liebknecht, Marx, and Sorge. This volume includes the full published proceedings of the first four Congresses of the International; Becker's many Manifestos on behalf of the German and Swiss factions of the International; coverage of the Paris Commune from 1871; and news and correspondence regarding German-speaking sections outside Europe, including, in several consecutive issues from 1870 to 1871, a series of articles under the headline "An die Deutschen New York's". Johann Most is best known for his later anarchist period in America, particularly in relation to the Haymarket plot, but his reputation as an agitator was established in Germany as the editor of a series of social-democratic papers including the Berliner Freie Press. Most was responsible for the first abridgement of Capital (volume 1) which was published as a small booklet in 1873 under the title Kapital und Arbeit. Ein populärer Auszug aus "Das Kapital" von Karl Marx (Draper ST/51). Taking issue with some of Most's abbreviations which he felt distorted the sense, Marx revised the abridgement from 1875–6 but stipulated that his name not be used in connection with it because it remained imperfect. A second edition appeared in April 1876 and it was translated into English in 1878. Although Marx planned to amend this translation and contribute a short preface, this plan was never realised. After being expelled from Berlin in 1878, Most then emigrated to London where he set up Freiheit as an émigré organ which published virulent attacks on the German party and its leaders (a stance which resulted in his expulsion by the 1880 party congress for slander). He repeatedly visited Marx and, despite his attempts to sway Marx to his more radical opinions and to convince him to write for his paper, Most only succeeded in distancing the author, who spoke out "against Most's type of propagandistic fustian as being the other side of the coin of Höchberg's pink parliamentarism" (Draper I 79.3). Engels agreed, dismissing Most's attacks as "empty screaming" in a letter to Becker in April 1880. However, despite their disapproval, when Marx and Engels were informed of Most's arrest in the wake of Alexander II's assassination – which the Freiheit had brashly praised – they immediately sent a letter to the London Daily News in his defence (1 April 1881, Draper ME176), and Marx even contributed to the Freiheit's fund against the English prosecution. Most fled to America in 1882, where he re-established Freheit and drew a following as an anarchist specialising in wild rhetoric; on the news of Marx's death, he gave a speech at the memorial meeting held in New York on 20 March 188. A well-preserved and complete run of Der Vorbote with an exceptional provenance.

        Large Rare Albumen Photographs By Renowned Photographers, Largely Featuring Views of Cairo and Baalbek, And With Captivating Portraits of Egyptians.

      Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, circa 1867-1880. Original albumen photographs taken by Félix Bonfils, renowned in his day for his extensive and stunning works, and also some by his associates and/or successors, largely featuring views of Cairo and Baalbek, and with captivating portraits of Egyptians themselves. At least eighteen (18) photographs are the work of Bonfils; seven (7) are the work of the Zangaki Brothers who were active in the same period. Contains 45 uncommonly large albumen print photographs, measuring approximately 28 x 22 cm, most numbered and bearing the photographer's embedded manuscript caption and his name, each mounted with incised corners recto and verso onto cardstock leaves. Oblong Crown Folio album measuring approximately 41 x 32 x 4 cm, Burgundy leather over burgundy cloth boards, five raised bands to spine. Some wear to boards, chips to album leafs, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a pleasing lot of very scarce views from a notable nineteenth century photographer. Félix Bonfils (1831-1885) was a French photographer and writer who was active, and widely celebrated, for his work in Egypt and the Middle East, producing a monumental photographic record of these regions. He settled to Beirut in 1867 where together with his wife he opened a photographic studio called "Maison Bonfils," which when joined by his son, became "F. Bonfils et Cie" in 1878. Renowned and highly sought after in his day, Bonfils was described by French archaeologist and historian Gratien Charvet (1826-1884) as having "initiated, executed and completed... with unequaled perseverance... one of the most considerable achievements - picturesque, artistic and scientific - of our epoch" with his "collection of photographs of the Orient's principal sites". Although there were a number of other European photographers in the region in this period, Bonfils was known for delivering unsurpassed meticulous quality. Despite his fame and unparalleled skill, Bonfils was, until recently, forgotten by most. Circa 1980, Father Carney E.S. Gavin, a curator for the Harvard Semetic Museum and founder of the Archives for Historical Documentation in Brighton, Massachussetts, revived the Bonfils family history, and as such, stirred up renewed ambition to attempt to acquire his photographs. Original photographs by Félix Bonfils are rare and have become invaluable as a primary source portrayal of customs and antiquity in the Near East. Only 18 glass negatives are known to have survived, most were washed clean to make fresh negatives; some were lost in troubled Beirut, and others were ground up to provide lens makers with fresh "ground glass" during a shortage in the 1950s. Eighteen or more photographs herein were taken and produced by Félix Bonfils. Also highly collectible, seven of the photographs were produced by the Zangaki Brothers [Adelphoi Zangaki], who were active from the 1870s into the 1890s and whose works are also sought after today. Little is known about the personal life of brothers Georgios and Constantinos Zangaki, except their Greek origin. Two commercial photographers working out of Port Said and Cairo, they specialized in historic or ancient Egyptian scenes, producing exceptional images of Egyptians performing their trades and traditional life customs. Their works are highly prized by historians and collectors for their insights into life at the time. At least 15 views are identified as being in Cairo, including street merchants selling water from large clay vessels, a princely young man in fine garments, two views of the Gezirah Palace, seven views of the noblest mosque and tomb in the necropolis of Mamluk Sultans at Kaid Bey showing the interior and exterior, a captivating image of the Minaret of Al Azhar Mosque with a muezzin calling for prayer, and two exterior views of the Great Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha. Also from Egypt, is one view of the Amenhotep III Sun Court at Luxor Temple in ancient Thebes. From Damascus in Syria we find 5 views, including a rare photograph of the dervishery, one of the legendary tomb inside the Great Umayyad Mosque which has been said since the 6th century to house the head of Saint John, a panoramic view of the city as seen from Salhieh, and two views of the courtyard and interior of "Maison de Chamieh." The ruins at Baalbek, situated in today's Lebanon some seventy-five kilometers north of Damscus, are presented in 13 views, including columns and arches, the Temple of Venus, the Temple of Jupiter, and lovely panoramic views to show its tremendous expanse. At the time, Lebanon was under Ottoman Rule with Egyptian occupation and French economic influence. One photograph of an ancient walled residence in ruins was taken in Biskra, Algeria, possibly being Sidi Okba. Finally, 9 striking images of the inhabitants conclude the album, several of which feature women in burkhas, mostly of the Egyptian style, though one appears to be Algerian. Most captivating is the view of a royal sedan carriage holding at least two women and being mounted front and back to luxuriously dressed camels and led by two male servants as guides.. Photo.

Exceedingly rare and very large nineteenth century photographs of Egypt and Syria - these are the original works of an acclaimed photographer and his colleagues - albumens produced with highest quality and utmost care.

[Located on Zankat Bab Tuma in the Christian Quarter of the old city, this house, also known as Bayt Shamiyya, was built by merchant and Spanish translator Antun Afandi al-Shami in 1863 after a less grand structure on the site had been destroyed by fire. By 1876 it had been sold to Jibran Afandi Shamiya, a Christian delegate to the City Council. Its most striking features are riwaqs made of marble and other imported material that are set in the façade behind the saliya. A specimen of outstanding craftsmanship, the interior features elaborate wall paintings, wood carvings, inlays refined decor.] The ruins at Baalbek, situated in today's Lebanon some seventy-five kilometers north of Damscus, are presented in 13 views, including columns and arches, the Temple of Venus, the Temple of Jupiter, and lovely panoramic views to show its tremendous expanse. At the time, Lebanon was under Ottoman Rule with Egyptian occupation and French economic influence.

Most captivating is the view of a royal sedan carriage holding at least two women and being mounted front and back to luxuriously dressed camels and led by two male servants as guides. Félix Bonfils (1831-1885) was a French photographer and writer who was active, and widely celebrated, for his work in Egypt and the Middle East, producing a monumental photographic record of these regions. In 1860 Bonfils joined General d'Hautpoul's expedition to the Levant. Soon after returning from Lebanon he became a photographer. When his son Adrien fell ill, Félix remembered the green hills around Beirut and sent him there to recover, accompanied by Marie-Lydie Cabanis Bonfils, Félix's wife. The family subsequently settled to Beirut in 1867 where they opened a photographic studio called "Maison Bonfils" which became "F. Bonfils et Cie" in 1878. Bonfils took photographs in Lebanon, Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Greece and Constantinople (Istanbul). Adrien learned the trade and decidedly embarked on he ambitious project of photographing all of the sites and traditional scenes in the Levant that he saw would be transformed and forever lost by railways, roads and tourism. His wife Marie-Lydie played an important role in the business as well, preparing albumen to make negatives, staying to manage operations long after her husband and son had returned to France, and becoming a photographer herself. She left Beirut in 1916 as an evacuee on the deck of the U.S.S. DesMoines. Photographic works by Félix Bonfils have become invaluable as a primary source firthand portrayal of customs and antiquity in the Near East. In his first four years, from 1867-1871 Félix made a list of his photographs, an immense labor of love, tallying 15,000 photographic prints of Egypt, Palestine, Syria, and Greece, and an additional 9,000 stereoscopic views. From his studio, he sold individual photographs, as well as complete albums. In 1872, Félix Bonfils published the album "Architecture antique: Égypte, Grèce, Asie Mineure" after presenting some of his photographs to the Société française de photographie. He returned to France in 1876, and opened a studio in his home town Alès. His son and wife remained in Beirut and continued operations long after Félix passed away in 1885. The studio was destroyed by fire in 1905, but continued nonetheless, being purchased in 1909 by Abraham Guiragossian who retained the firm's highly reputed name. In 1877-1878, he published "Souvenirs d'Orient" an album in five volumes, illustrating the most celebrated places in the East. Each volume consisted of forty original photographs, mounted and captioned in detail to the adjacent leaf. He received a medal for this publication, which was presented to him at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1878. Also in 1878, in Paris he published "Albums photographiques des monuments et des sites les plus célèbres de l'Orient" which was possibly a condensed version of the latter. "Souvenir de Jérusalem", was published in Leipzig circa 1880, and a volume of his works was published posthumously with the title "Nazareth et ses environs" in Saint-Petersburg in 1894.

        SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: MAP OF PORT JACKSON AND CITY OF SYDNEY, SHEWING THE ADJACENT MUNICIPALITIES. N.S.W. 1867.

      Lithograph with full original hand colour, dissected into 20 sections and mounted upon original linen, folding into original chestnut cloth covers with short tile in gilt to front cover, printed ‘Opinions of the Press’ and description of the map pasted within covers, ‘Ingleton Collection’ stamp and catalogue number to linen on verso of map (Good, very mild toning and staining to map, covers with mild edge-wear), 67.5 x 56.5 cm (26.5 x 22 inches). - Sydney: Compiled and published by James A. C. Willis, 309 Upper Dowling Street Darlinghurst. Entered at Stationers Hall, 1867. James Willis’s very rare map of Sydney, providing a superbly detailed and accurate record of the city and its environs as they appeared during the 1860s, published in Sydney – an extraordinary example with resplendent original colour - from the collection of Geoffrey C. - Ingleton. - This exquisite and very rare work is one of the finest maps of Sydney and its environs of its era, being masterpiece of Australian lithography and cartographic design. It was drafted James A. C. Willis, an important crown surveyor, who was also a respected topographical artist. Willis compiled the map from his own surveys sand those of his colleagues at the New South Wales Surveyor General’s Office. The map embraces the entire vicinity of Sydney in all directions, extending as far north as Curl Curl, as far south as the northern reaches of Botany Bay, and as far west as Ashfield. The coverage is highly detailed for its scale, demarcating the coastlines with trigonometric accuracy, labelling all major streets and important buildings, as well as naming all neighbourhoods and land reserves. The City of Sydney proper is shown to occupy only what is today considered to be the downtown core, here coloured in a brilliant reddish-pink hue, while the suburbs mainly extend to the south, while the semi-urbanized areas (now long since annexed to Sydney) are shown to be isolated villages. The seas and major waterways, notably all of Port Jackson, are here bathed in a pale blue wash, and feature copious nautical information, including bathymetric soundings and the labelling of hazards. Parks, government reserves and forests are coloured in a bright green hue.Major buildings labelled in the city proper include: Government House, Customs House, Exchange, St. Andrew’s Cathedral, St. Mary’s Cathedral, Fort Phillip, the Land & Surveyor General’s Office, Prince of Wales Theatre, Royal Hotel, N.S.W. Bank, General Post Office, The Markets and the Australian Museum, amongst many others. The parkland of the Inner and Outer Domains are featured, including the Botanical Gardens. Sydney Common is shown to be largely undeveloped, beside the military Barracks, featuring the Military Cricket Ground and Rifle Range. Just a little further to the south is the Randwick Race course. To the southwest of the city proper is the ‘University Reserve’ that shows the University of Sydney (founded 1850) to still be confined to only a single major building. While the beach at Bondi Bay is evident, the area seems to be somewhat remote and undeveloped. The North Shore is depicted to still be almost entirely rural, save for the urbanization of St. Leonard’s. The Great Southern & Western Railway is shown to run to west and southwest towards Bathurst and Melbourne. SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED

      Cambridge, 1867. 3pp. Folded octavo lettersheet. Slightly tanned at edges, portion of fold torn away, evidently due to having been extracted from an album or book at some time, with possible loss of a hyphen, otherwise very good. Longfellow writes an unspecified recipient ("My Dear Sir"), evidently in response to receipt of a book, which he has read "with great interest and pleasure. There is a good deal of beauty and freshness in it and a certain flavor of the soil which I much like. You will not, however, expect from me any extended criticism. That would be out of place...."
