      W.E. Thompson (Wyman & Sons), 1869. In - 4° (335x245mm), pp. VIII + 12 di testo descrittivo impresso al solo recto in carte inserite tra le tavole a colori. Legatura editoriale in tutta tela marrone con titolo in oro su campo blu entro medaglione centrale al piatto, contornato da ricchissime bordure in oro a motivi floreali, geometrici e ornamentali. Le bordure e i decori del piatto anteriore sono ripetuti a secco al piatto di tergo. Tagli dorati. 12 bellissime tavole cromolitografiche a colori da disegno di Elijah Walton con raffigurazione di fiori alpini (edelweiss, viole del pensiero, rododendri, genziane, ecc.). Qualche lieve fioritura. Minime gorette e lievi segni del tempo alla legatura, ma bell'esemplare. Edizione originale di uno dei più bei libri ottocenteschi consacrati alla flora alpina. Il Walton (Nei pressi di Birmingham, 1832 - Bromsgrove Lickey, Worcestershire, 1880), pittore inglese, fu specialista nei quadri di montagna. Frutto della collaborazione tra i due furono alcuni altri classici volumi di montagna, fra cui "Peaks and Valleys of the Alps". L'autore dei testi, il reverendo Bonney (Rugeley, Staffordshire, 1833 - Cambridge, 1923) fu geologo, presidente dell'Alpine Club dal 1881 al 1883, professore di geologia allo University College di Londra; le sue ascensioni alpine si protrassero per oltre mezzo secolo. Fu collaboratore del Walton nella stesura di varie altre opere. Perret, 4513: "Un bel abum illustré sur la flore alpine, peu courant et recherché". Nissen, 2104.

        Auf dem Karlsplatze. Nie gehörtes! Noch nie gesehenes! Die weltberühmte Mundkünstlerin. Alle bis jetzt gesehenen merkwürdigen Naturwunder werden übertroffen durch die einzig in der Welt dastehende Mundkünstlerin welche die Ehre haben wird, ihre Produktion das erste Mal in München zu zeigen.

      München, Deschler, 1869 oder 1870. Anschlagzettel mit kl. Holzschnitt, die \"Mundkünstlerin\" darstellend. Blattgr: 42 x 15,5 cm. Die namentlich nicht genannte, angeblich 25jährige Frau war ohne Arme und Beine geboren, konnte aber mit dem Mund erstaunlich präzise \"Hand\"arbeiten wie Nähen, Sticken, Häkeln, Perlarbeiten ausführen und \"sogar die schwierigsten Muster mit der Scheere im Munde ausschneiden, die feinste Nadel einfädeln und den Knopf mit der Zunge machen\". - Es muss sich bei der \"Mundkünstlerin\" um Gottliebe Bennona Schröder (1849-1918) handeln, auch wenn die Altersangabe auf dem Zettel vom tatsächlichen Alter abweicht. Von 1866 bis 1890er Jahre zog Gottliebe mit einem Schausteller, der sie in ihrem thüringischen Geburtsort Irchwitz entdeckt hatte, über die verschiedensten Jahrmärkte und Messen in Deutschland, Österreich, Belgien, Holland, Frankreich und der Schweiz.

        Manifest Kommunisticheskoj partii.

      [Geneva, Louis Czerniecki, 1869]. - 8vo (117 x 186 mm). 23, (1) pp. With original printed title label on front flyleaf. Contemp. red half cloth with gilt title to cloth on front board. In green custom-made morocco-backed slipcase with chemise. First edition of the first Russian translation of the Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels' groundbreaking work of communist propaganda, "undoubtedly the most widespread, the most international production of all Socialist literature, the common platform acknowledged by millions of working men from Siberia to California" (preface to the 1888 edition). In the words of the British economist Harold Laski, the Manifesto is "admitted by every serious student of society to be one of the outstanding documents of all time". It also constitutes an early sum of Marx' and Engels' ideas, later to become known under the heading of 'scientific socialism': "[L]e manifeste renferme en puissance la quasi-totalité des idées élaborées par ses deux auteurs dans leurs ouvrages ultérieurs et qui, dans leur ensemble, représentent ce qu'ils appellent le socialisme scientifique; la seul exception importante est la théorie de la plus-value" (Andréas, p. 1). - This first Russian translation was prepared by the anarchist Mikhail Bakunin, "who despite being one of Marx and Engels' most pronounced opponents in the working class movement, saw the great revolutionary importance contained within the Manifesto" (note to the preface of the 1882 Russian translation). Due to state censorship, publication in Russia was out of the question. The printer, Louis (Ludwik) Czerniecki, was a Polish emigré who had come to Switzerland via London with the Russian revolutionary democrat Alexander Herzen. His Polish printing press served the Free Russian Press, in especial Herzen's paper "Kolokol" ("The Bell"), the Russian emigrants' leading organ of the time. Prior to this translation, the only bits of the Manifesto to reach Russian readers were a single sentence in the radical St. Petersburg journal "Sovremnik" (12/1858), reminiscent of the Manifesto's famous final sentence, and a paraphrase of the beginning of Section I that appeared as an introduction to a German-translated article in "Zagranicnij Vestnik" (6/1864). Neither of these publications cited their source. Unbeknownst to either author, it would be Russia where the Revolution heralded by the Manifesto would finally take place, under the leadership of their disciple Lenin who did not discover Marxism until after Marx's death (but who was later to prepare his own translation of the Communist Manifesto). - Engels, in his preface to the 1888 English edition of the Manifesto, stated in twofold error that "the first Russian translation, made by Bakunin, was published at Herzen's 'Kolokol' office in Geneva, about 1863; a second one, by the heroic Vera Zasulich, also in Geneva, 1882". In fact, Bakunin's version appeared in 1869, and the 1882 translation, with a preface by the authors, is by Georgi Plekhanov. Neither Marx nor Engels appears ever to have owned a copy of this Russian translation. Shrewdly, it was issued without wrappers or title page, with no mention of place or year, editor, printer, or translator. The printed title label present in our copy is also confirmed in the single other copy available for comparison (Geneva). Extremely rare: the only known copy in private hands; only three other copies are known in libraries worldwide (Bibliothèque de Genève; Institute of Marxism-Leninism of the Central Committee of the CPSU; Russian State Library/Gos. Biblioteka Imeni Lenina; photocopies in the Andréas and Feltrinelli collections). - A bit of wear to extremities. Binding very slightly loosened; gutter of flyleaf and first leaf inconspicuously reinforced. All in all very well preserved. Andréas 54. OCLC 717010404 (Bibliothèque de Genève, BGE Brsl 954/10). Rubel 70 (note, "1859" in error). Marx-Engels Erstdrucke p. 15, note 1. Cf. PMM 326. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        THE BOOK THAT ENCOURAGED MARX TO LEARN RUSSIAN] Polozhenie rabochego klassa v Rossii [i.e. The condition of the working class in Russia]

      N.P. Polyakova, St. Petersburg 1869 - [6], II, 494 pp. 1 map (carefully restored). 8vo. Contemporary quarter-leather. Good condition. First edition. Vassily Vasilievich Bervi-Flerovsky's (1829-1918) main work was nicknamed the Russian Das Kapital; its description of Russian economic reality was thoroughly Marxist. In turn, it influenced Marx himself. He started to learn Russian in 1869 in order to read this book that had already been praised by Engels. Marx was planning to focus heavily on Russia in the third volume of Das Kapital (specifically, on Russian agrarian relations). Marx commented later: "The work by Flerovskii is a real discovery for Europe. Russian optimism which has been put about on the continent even by so-called revolutionists, has been mercilessly exposed in this work. The virtues of the book are not diminished if I say that it is in several places not fully up to critical standards, from the purely scholarly point of view. This is a work of a serious observer, a dispassionate laborer, and an impartial critic, a powerful artist, etc." Flerovsky was praised widely and the impact he had in Russia was immense. He was one of the ideologues of the narodnichestvo (Populist) movement, living his life in "voluntary poverty" along with the peasants and lower classes of Russian society in order better to understand them. His economics and lifestyle earned him widespread support among students and the middle-classes. He was routinely compared to Tolstoy in the extent (though not the nature) of the influence both men exerted on the minds of the people. Most of Flerovsky's works were banned in Russia as he was an open revolutionary. Though the first edition of this book was banned, it sold so quickly that it was not possible to destroy the whole run; but the second edition, printed in 1872, was completely destroyed (2465 copies).

        La photographie des couleurs

      pages 303 - 311 dans Les Mondes. Revue hebdomadaire des sciences [...] par l'Abbé Moigno, Paris, Bureaux des Mondes, février 1869. demi - basane rouge de l'époque février 1869, février 1869, in - 8, , demi - basane rouge de l'époque, Très rare article publié avant le tiré à part, augmenté et paru sous le titre "Solution générale du problème de la photographie des couleurs". Avec celui de Louis Ducos du Hauron (1837 - 1920): "Les couleurs en photographie, solution du problème", le mémoire de Charles Cros (1842 - 1888) est l'une des deux premières publications au sujet de l'invention de la photographie en couleur. Bien avant eux, plusieurs tentatives avaient été faites pour essayer de fixer, en vain, les couleurs. Entre autres, les essais d'Edmond Becquerel, qui en 1848 fixa les couleurs du spectre solaire sur une plaque de cuivre, n'aboutirent pas à une solution pratique. "«La plaquette reprend l'essentiel d'une communication faite a? l'Acade?mie des sciences deux ans auparavant (1867) et un article publie? dans Les Mondes, pe?riodique scientifique dirige? par l'abbe? Moigno (25 fe?vrier 1869)" (En Français dans le texte). Les premiers essais en photographie de Charles Cros furent tout à fait exceptionnels; et là, l'histoire en garda la mémoire : en 1882, il réalisa ses premières épreuves colorées d'après "Le Printemps" d'Edouard Manet. Mais les applications de ses recherches en restèrent là car le procédé de Ducos du Hauron avait été préféré. N'oublions pas de signaler que Charles Cros est aussi le génial inventeur du phonographe dont il présenta le procédé en 1877. (cf. DBF, IX, 1279). Malgré des estampilles de la Bibliothéque de l'Institut, bon exemplaire, dans sa première reliure, frais, de cette texte fondateur de la photographie en couleurs

Questo rapporto trasformato gradualmente in reciproca ammirazione, come George Sand renderà omaggio all'autore di un articolo in tempo 31 Luglio 1872: "Il signor Leconte de Lisle è anche un grande poeta, e così forte che è originale divenne capo della scuola.

        THE HEBREW BIBLE

      New York; J. Wiley, 1869. Original Cloth. 8vo. 1384 pages. 22 cm. First American edition. Singerman 2114. In Hebrew, with English title page, pagination, and section headings in English. 'Revised and carefully examined by Myer Levi Letteris. ' The Letteris Bible was frequently reissued by both Jewish and Christian publishers; it was published in a Yiddish version in 1912; the first edition was published in Vienna in 1852, based on the 1705 Bible of van der Hooght?. It is probably the most widely reproduced text of the Hebrew Bible in history, with many dozens of authorised reprints and many more pirated and unacknowledged ones. Compiled by Meir Halevi Letteris (1800? ?1871) , an influential ?Hebrew poet; editor and translator of poetry and dramatic works. Me?ir (Max) ha - Levi Letteris was born in Zólkiew, eastern Galicia, into a family of Hebrew publishers ? When Letteris was 11 years old, he met Nahman Krochmal?a meeting that turned out to be significant. Krochmal became Letteris?s rabbi, mentor, and close friend, and when Krochmal?s Moreh nevukhe ha - zeman (Guide of the Perplexed of Our Time) was published (posthumously) , Letteris wrote his biography (1851) . Letteris?s translation from German into Hebrew of a speech by David Friedländer, and the production of a new edition of the publication Ha - Me?asef, brought him close to the world of maskilim in Germany, and the appearance of his own poetry collection, Divre shir (Collection of Poems) in 1822 established his reputation as a poet. In 1823, Letteris published the anthology Ha - Tsefirah, to which some of the leading maskilim of his generation contributed. In 1846, Letteris published his article 'Toldot ha - filosof Barukh Spinozah zikhrono li - verakhah' (Biography of the Philosopher Barukh Spinoza of Blessed Memory) . Unaware of the Jewish community?s sensitivity about Spinoza, Letteris was dragged, at great personal cost, into a tumultuous debate that caused his friends, even those who were more moderate maskilim, to draw away from him?. Only after his death in 1871 did critics judge him more positively, at which point even long - standing opponents such as Perets Smolenskin acknowledged his talent. Through his original and translated poetry, Letteris paved the way for romantic poetry in Hebrew literature. His collections of Hebrew verse (which include original poems as well as translations) are Divre shir, Ayelet ha - sha? Ar (Morning Star; 1824) , ?Afrot zahav (Gold Ore; 1852) , and Tofes kinor ve - ugav (One Who Plays the Harp and Pipe; 1860) . Letteris wrote poems in German as well, and his publication of Sagen aus dem Orient (Legends of the Orient; 1847) earned him a gold medal from Emperor Franz Joseph. ? He translated many European literary classics, lyrical poems, and plays, including works by Virgil, Lucian, Racine, Byron, Goethe, Schiller, and the Austrian Jewish poet Ludwig August Frankl. Additionally, he translated (from German) the satire Alexander the False Prophet by the Greek satirist Lucian (in Ha - Tsefirah; 1823) , thus contributing to the infusion of European satire into contemporary Hebrew. ? (YIVO Encyclopedia) . Bound in original black tooled calf, gilt lettered spine. Subjects: Bible. Old Testament. Hebrew. Letteris. 1869. OCLC lists 11 copies. Calf rubbed at extremities, otherwise fresh. Good + condition, a nice copy. (RAB - 56 - 2)

        Lettera autografa inviata da Giacomo Puccini all'amico Carlo Clausetti, datata 4 dicembre 1920.

      1869. Lettera autografa ad inchiostro in formato cm.17,5x13,2, compilata solo alla prima e alla quarta facciata rispettivamente su 10 e 4 righe. Nella missiva Puccini comunica all'amico, affettuosamente chiamato "Claudio", che "accludo foglio firmato, attendo fogli Manon e Butt[erfly]: spero arrivino prima di martedì perché parto per Orbetello". Seguono al verso i saluti di rito. Classica grafia del Maestro, con buona firma "G.Puccini". Allegata busta affrancata e viaggiata, con indirizzo del destinatario a Milano, presso la sede di Casa Ricordi in Via Berchet, 2. Carlo Clausetti (Napoli, 1869 - 1943), anch'egli compositore, ereditò dal padre la direzione della succursale napoletana di Casa Ricordi, per poi divenirne direttore artistico nel 1912 e gerente nel 1919 assieme a Renzo Valcarenghi, incarico da lui tenuto fino al 1940. Fu lui a trattare per conto di Puccini l'acquisto di un pianoforte a gran coda "Steinway", celebre marca di cui era rappresentante per l'Italia, un pianoforte su cui Puccini compose gran parte della sua ultima opera incompiuta, "Turandot". Il cimelio è oggi conservato presso la casa natale del musicista a Lucca. E' possibile che la lettera sia in riferimento ad una esecuzione di "Madama Butterfly" del 9 dicembre 1920 al Teatro Carcano.

A pioneering creator of city and country views in the American West, Alfred Mathews' works ranks only behind Bodmer, Catlin, Moran, and Warre as illustrated depictions of the opening of the West. The present work was issued following the success of his famed Pencil Sketches of Colorado (1866) and Pencil Sketches of Montana (1868). Mathews states in his "Introductory" notice: "The Lithographs embodied in this work are selections from a series of sketches made by the artist while sojourning in Colorado, Idaho, Montana and Utah, from the fall of 1865 to the winter of 1868. During this time he made many excursions of more or less duration, from Denver in Colorado, Helena and Virginia City in Montana, and Salt Lake City in Utah . These expeditions were performed, excepting during one summer, entirely alone, and principally with ponies; but on two or three occasions on snow-shoes and in a small boat . The pictures represent actual localities; and as they have been drawn on stone from the sketches by the artist himself, have lost none of their original truthfulness." Organized geographically, the tinted lithographs comprise twelve views in Colorado, two in Idaho Territory, two in Montana, and four in Utah; each view is accompagnied by a descriptive text leaf. The final Appendix leaf includes endorsements by President Grant and others. "Mathew's famous lithographs were among the first true representations of the Rocky Mountains to be made available to the public" (Streeter).

        The Subjection of Women.

      London: Longmans, Green, Reader, and Dyer,, 1869. Octavo (197 × 121mm). Original dark yellow cloth, title to spine gilt, boards blocked in blind, brown coated endpapers, recased. Spine ends and inner hinges very skilfully restored, corners lightly rubbed, covers a little darkened; a clean, crisp copy. First edition, "the last of [Mill's] great political tracts" and his "most unpopular and bitterly contested" work (ODNB). Mill had long been a women's rights advocate, having been influenced by the thinking of his father, the Utilitarian philosopher James Mill, and by his long friendship with, and then marriage to, the philosopher Harriet Taylor Mill (1807?1858), a passionate advocate for equality. Indeed, the freedom of women can be seen as a microcosm of Mill's general philosophy of freedom, in which "the 'greatest good' of the community is inseparable from the liberty of the individual" and the definition of tyranny is expanded to include the domination of minorities by a democratically elected majority (PMM 345). The Subjection of Women was the only one of Mills' works "on which he made a financial loss, even though pirated popular editions soon began to circulate widely in Europe and America. Among campaigners for women's suffrage, however, it rapidly became a sacred text and gave him a position of heroic, almost apostolic, authority within the nascent women's movement" (ODNB).

        From Calcutta to London by the Suez Canal.

      Calcutta: The "Englishman" Press 12mo (16.2 cm, 6.35"). [6], 272, xxii pp.. 1869 The Maryland-born, Harvard-educated Rev. Dall, who established several schools in Calcutta as part of his work with Hindu reformers, was for 30 years the sole Unitarian missionary to India. This volume focuses primarily on his travels rather than his religious and educational work: it collects the letters he wrote as "Roving Correspondent" to the Englishman. These observant, engagingly written accounts were "fresh from the localities indicated" (p. [v]) — including the Suez Canal, which Dall explored from end to end in 1868 and again in 1869, making this a very early account of that modern marvel, for the canal officially opened on November 17, 1869. => The letters cover politics, culture, commerce, and tips on travelling in "far" places. This is the uncommon first edition; WorldCat and NSTC locate => only five hard copies in U.S. institutions. Publisher's gray-blue paper wrappers; front wrapper with tiny hole, spine creased with one chip, edges and corners rubbed. Pages age-toned, otherwise clean. => A solid, clean copy of a scarce item.
