        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

It had its groceries, its dry goods stores, and its two houses for public worship--the Methodist and Presbyterian--while every other Sunday a little band of Episcopalians met for their own service in what was called the Village Hall, where, during week days, a small, select school was frequently taught by some Yankee schoolmistress. It had its post office, too; and there was also talk of a bank after the railroad came that way, and roused the people to a state of still greater activity.Ethelyn's Mistake 265 PagesPoor & Proud    22 PagesDiamonds    21 pagesPrinting has add in typeset  aditions incerted by publishing companyIt does not state and other tales.

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. Lo abbiamo un vero riconoscimento dobbiamo? avrebbe anche il riconoscimento nazionale. » Questa forma spedizione di tributo, riflette la stima e l'ammirazione reciproca che viene indossato dai due autori.

On lui doit une vraie reconnaissance ? il faudrait que ce fût une reconnaissance nationale. » Cet envoi, sous forme d'hommage, rend compte de l'estime et de l'admiration réciproque que se portaient les deux auteurs.   Très bel hommage littéraire sur un exemplaire joliment relié.

        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. Codice libreria 117289.

        Gems of Rocky Mountain Scenery, Containing Views Along and Near the Union Pacific Railroad

      Published by the Author, New York 1869 - (13 x 10 1/4 inches). 20 tinted lithographed plates after Mathews. Publisher's purple cloth, covers decoratively blocked in blind, upper cover with a central stamp in gilt, expertly rebacked to style. A rare work by an important western artist, with among the first illustrations of the Rocky Mountains made available to the public. 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). Eberstadt 106:207; Graff 2708; Howes M411; Sabin 46823; Streeter sale 2109. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

        La France se preparant a passer ses candidats sous la toise.

      [Paris: Le Charivari, 3 May 1869]. Lithograph. Small 4to (image size 8¼" X 10"). Very good. Light, even age toning. This is the second state of Plate 73 in this illustrated newspaper's "Actualites" series, and a strong clean impression. It depicts a statuesque crowned woman, representing France and resembling our Statue of Liberty, standing at right atop a scale with a measuring pole. Her right hand rests across her bosom and her right hand clutches the adjustable height bar near the top of the measuring pole. Behind her and at left stand a crowd of Frenchmen in suits and ties, all staring apprehensively at her. The caption reads, in translation, "France preparing to het her candidates to pass muster under the measure of standards." Immediately below the plate, at lower left, is printed "A. de Vresse, r.Rivoli, 55" while at lower right is printed "Lith. Destouches, r. Paradis Pre 28," and the stone number "16" appears in the base of the scale. A quite nice copy, printed on wove paper. (The rare first state was printed on newsprint stock and bore no caption, and the rare third state bore a different caption than the second state.) This print is displayed in a single cream matte and a ½" black wooden frame, overall dimensions 13" X 16". Very good. Slight bit of dampstaining at upper left and lower right of matte (not affecting print). Verso of frame bears the label of noted New York art gallery E. Weythe Art Books Prints. Daumier produced a vast number of social caricatures, roughly 4000 in number, many done for this famed publication. From the collection of former Illinois Senator ADLAI E. STEVENSON III (b. 1930), son of the Illinois governor of the same name (1900-65) and great-grandson of the U.S. vice president of the same name (1835-1914). DR 3708.

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.

        Hand and Soul

      London: Stangeways and Walden, [1869]. Near Fine. First edition. A unique and most interesting offering - a scarce privately printed book accompanied by only recently published handwritten letters from Rossetti's brother, William Michael (the texts of the letters were published for the first time in "Notes and Queries," Oxford University Press, in January 17, 2011) This is a privately-printed edition of a story that had first appeared in The Germ in 1850. Dante Gabriel Rossetti originally intended to include this prose story in his volume of verse, but decided not to following the recovery of his poetical manuscript notebook from the grave of his wife, Elizabeth Siddal. This pamphlet is an offprint from the typesetting found in proofs produced between October 30 and November 25 1869. William Rossetti notes when his brother excluded the story from his published verse he had various copies of Hand and Soul done up in drab wrappers, and that he gave some away but never sold them. Both Thomas Wise and Charles Fairfax Murray state, without citing any authority, that 100 copies were printed. About 30 can now be accounted for. All but a handful are in institutional collections, most deriving from a cache discover by William after Dante Gabriel's death in 1882. This copy was sent by William Michael Rossetti to an admirer of his family, Louisa Douglas Summerbell. She was an artist and illuminator much influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites. Rossetti has inscribed the book "To Miss L. Douglas Summerbell with the friendly regards of Wm. Rossetti June 1896." Written above this in William's hand is a six-line explanation of the pamphlet's publishing history. Bound in are five important signed autograph letters, seventeen pages in all, from William Rossetti to Miss Summerbell, written between 1896 and 1906, in which he discusses at length the writings of Dante Gabriel, Christina and himself. In original buff printed wrappers that Summerbell had neatly sewn into limp green cloth along with the letters and laid into a beautiful 19th-century handmade leather case showing some rubbing. On the preliminary leaf of the cloth bound book is a note that it had passed to her friend, Ruth Johnston. From the collection of Gerald N. Wachs and included in an exhibition of his poetry collection at the Grolier Club in 1995. Pamphlet in very good collection bound into near fine cloth book. PRERAPH/071216.
