Throughout the 1860s and early 1870s Saint-Saëns led a bachelor's existence and shared a large apartment with his mother Françoise-Clémence (1809-1888). On Monday evening the composer and his mother often hosted famous soirées which were attended by numerous composers and musicians. In the letter Saint-Saëns writes that he is instructed by his mother to invite the recipient for dinner on Monday (tomorrow), to make up for the bad dinner of last week.Camille Sint-Saëns (1835-1921) was a French composer of the Romantic era. In 1858 he became organist of La Madeleine, the official church of the French Empire, and in 1861 piano teacher at the École de musique classique et réligieuse. There he conceived his best known piece, Carnival of the animals, which he only finished in 1886. In the years in between he wrote numerous works including the Danse macabre, the opera Samson and Delilah and the Organ Symphony.In excellent condition.

TENNYSON, Alfred, Baron Tennyson.
1870-86. first editions by Alfred Tennyson from the Library of Arthur Tennyson, four INSCRIBED. All five volumes are in original green cloth, rubbed, with fore edges of boards uniformly affected by damp. 1. The Holy Grail, Strahan, 1870. INSCRIBED on leading blank: 'Arthur & Harriet From Alfred & Emily'. 2. Queen Mary, Henry S. King, 1875. INSCRIBED on e.p.: 'Arthur Tennyson from Alfred'. 3. Harold, Henry S. King, 1877. INSCRIBED on half title: 'Arthur & Harriet Tennyson from Alfred'. 4. The Lover's Tale, C. Kegan Paul, 1879.

With gift inscription for Christmas 1886 in pencil on leading blank, not from Alfred, and partially erased. Alfred and Arthur were the fourth and eighth of the twelve children born to the Reverend George Clayton Tennyson, 1778-1831, and Elizabeth Ffytche, 1781-1865. Arthur, 1814-1899, who married Harriet West, is one of the 'lost brothers' of the family; no letters to or from him are recorded in the Tennyson Letters ed. by Lang & Shannon. The inscriptions in these volumes are probably in Arthur's hand. His grandfather suggests in 1827 that Arthur becomes a 'cadet or into the Navy'. In 1831 he writes: 'I don't know what Arthur is fit for. He still does not know the Multiplication Tables or indeed anything useful. He could learn if he would but he is idle as a Foal. He must be instructed before he can be fit for anything and his gestures and twitchings etc. are ridiculous and he would be a subject of ridicule anywhere. … [Click Below for Full Description]

SMITH, Miss Caroline
The author, [Haverhill, Mass, 1870. First edition. Broadside. Approximately 12" x 9". Modest but pervasive chipping and tears confined to the margins, good or better. Twenty-one stanzas of verse and two paragraphs of explanation from a lady of Haverhill, Massachusetts, who here stands up in verse for her right to salubrious peace and quiet in the face of the repeated cacophonous depredations of the Haverhill Rifle Club-or as she has it in her note, "It is now nearly nine months since I have been obliged, let me be ever so sick and helpless, to leave my room or bed at a moment's warning, and flee before the Rifle Club, in order to save my life and reason. And this has been done repeatedly when I have not been able to sit up more than five or ten minutes during the day after leaving the carriage. I should have entered a complaint at the commencement, but the Police Judge, the protector of the public peace and the town representative of Justice, was at the head of this outrage, and could not sustain the cause of right and humanity without involving himself in the overthrow." That Smith's outrage should find vent in verse is of course curious but not perhaps atypical of her time-certainly the ringing sentiments suit themselves to lyric: "Beneath the dark banner Of vice they're arrayed, And on Guilt and Injustice Their footsteps are stayed. Shouting in triumph, As onward they go, To inflict on the helpless New suffering and woe." Smith appears to have published a similarly gloomy collection of verse, *Haverhill in Eclipse* (Newburyport, 1870) and another scarce broadside aimed a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sometimes the letterpress was supplied by distinguished contributors. To the issue for 1839 Thackeray contributed 'Stubb's Calendar, or the Fatal Boots,' to be followed in 1840 by 'Barber Cox, and the Cutting of his Comb,' afterwards called 'Cox's Diary.'" (DNB).

BARING-GOULD, Sabine.
[c.1870?]. 42 lines ms. in brown ink with pencil guide lines, signed by Baring-Gould at the end of five eight-line stanzas. Mounted, framed & glazed. 20thC auction description laid down at lower margin. 29 x 17cm. Sabine Baring-Gould, 1834-1924, was an Anglican priest, scholar and novelist. He had particular interest in writing and collecting folk songs and hymns, and is perhaps best known for writing the lyrics to Onward Christian Soldiers. Baring-Gould intended the lyrics to be a processional hymn for children walking from Horbury Bridge, where he was curate, to Horbury St Peter's Church near Wakefield, Yorkshire, at Whitsuntide in 1865. It was originally entitled, Hymn for Procession with Cross and Banners. The music was composed by Arthur Sullivan in 1871 with Sullivan naming the tune St. Gertrude. Baring-Gould is said to have written Onward, Christian Soldiers in only 15 minutes: 'It was written in great haste' he wrote, 'and I am afraid some of the rhymes are faulty. Certainly nothing has surprised me more than its popularity. I don't remember how it got printed first, but I know that very soon it found its way into several collections.'

Currier & Ives, New York, 1870. Color lithograph measuring 8 3/8 x 12 3/8 inches image size on 11 1/4 x 14 13/16 inches sheet. Sheet is off white with light soiling. Archival repair of closed tear at base barely running into image and slightly affecting the caption title. Has been backed with several repairs to the margins. As usual Currier and Ives take liberties with western landscapes situating the young town of Salt Lake City literally on the edge of the Great Salt Lake with towering mountains dropping to the edge of the lake. This bird's eye view shows three men standing on a bluff overlooking the city with two major avenues leading to waters edge. Easterners were very curious about western landscapes and a Mormon town in the inter-mountain west was especially unique. Picturing America #829 estimates this print was published as early as 1870.

Contemporary gold-blocked purple cloth, bound by "Burn and co.". VI, [1], [1 blank], 203, [1] pp. Second edition of an account of a cruise on the yacht Ariadne to Egypt, Constantinople, Crimea and Greece, made by the prince and princess of Wales in 1869.

Grey gives a vivid portrayal of Cairo at that time, describing her visits to Muhammad Ali's mosque, various gardens and museums, shopping at the Bazaar, a horse-race, visits to the wife of the Pasha, the viceroy's harem and other important figures, a wedding, and much more. After Egypt the journey continues to Constantinople (Istanbul), the Crimea, mentioning the ruins from the Crimean War, and Greece, visiting Athens and Corfu.In very good condition, only a few tiny spots.

One work with 5 leaves with wood engraved illustrations and some others with an illustration on the title-page. Contemporary red half sheepskin, with gold fillets and title-label on spine, and the original wrappers of each work bound in. A collection of scientific and promotional publications on mineral springs in France from the end of the 19th-century. The therapeutic virtues of hydrotherapy have been known since antiquity, but the practice became less prevalent at the end of the 18th-century, until Priessnitz (1799-1851) revived it Germany. Because of the law against lay practice in France, the revival there was delayed. "Physicians of scientific attainment [then] entered upon the investigation of hydrotherapy in France with zeal, while in Germany the natural prejudice entertained by the medical profession against the empiricism of Priessnitz and his followers for a long time prevented educated physicians from attaching themselves to water establishments" (Baruch). The collection includes articles by Pidoux, Guyenot, Durand-Fardel, Joubert, Binet, Breuillard, Bouloumié and others.One article (no. 21) has a stamp of "Pharmacie Gaffard, R. Destrez succr. Versailles". In very good condition.List of contents available on request S. Baruch, The principles and practice of hydrotherapy (1900), pp. 477-478.

[DRAWINGS - CHINESE]. TINGQUA.
[Twelve Chinese gods].[Guangzhen (Canton)], Tingqua, [ca. 1870?]. Imperial 4to album (33 x 24.5 cm). 12 drawings in numerous brightly coloured gouaches plus gold and silver, on pith paper (30 x 21.5 cm), each drawing mounted by its corners in an album of mulberry-bark(?) paper and framed with 4 strips of blue silk, and with a loose tissue leaf inserted before each drawing and an extra blank album leaf before the first drawing. Contemporary rice-straw(?) pasteboards, with the contemporary "Tingqua" label. [12] ll. Twelve spectacular and extremely detailed Chinese drawings of Chinese deities, executed in dozens of brightly coloured gouaches plus gold and silver by the Tingqua studio, established in Guangzhen (Canton province) in the 1830s. Tingqua, also known as Guam Lianchang (ca. 1809-1870 or soon after) was the leading artist in the export business that flourished after China's defeat in the First Opium War (1839-1842) opened the country to foreign trade. He and his slightly older contemporary Sunqua (active 1830-1870) pioneered the genre of pith paintings for the export market. The drawings show considerable originality in the rendition of the deities and their attributes, which sometimes makes it difficult to identify the deity intended. As usual with pith-paper drawings made for export, they show a mix of Chinese and Western influences, the faces here clearly following Western art (Tingqua was a protégé of George Chinnery), but the present drawings may also show some Tibetan influences. Since pith-paper drawings were rarely signed, few can be attributed to an artist or … [Click Below for Full Description]

[SINGAPORE - PHOTOGRAPHS]. [SACHTLER, August, and others].
[Views of Singapore and surroundings].[Singapore, ca. 1870]. 20 large uniform albumen prints (21 x 27 cm), all but 1 in landscape format. Each print mounted on paperboard (24.5 x 32.5 cm) with a manuscript series number and a German caption. Kept in a modern black cloth clamshell box. A uniform set of large photographic albumen prints of Singapore, including exterior views of traditional, European and mixed-style buildings, landscapes, the botanical gardens, etc., many with European and/or Malay people in the scene and some with horse-drawn carriages, or boats. The two views from Fort Canning have been attributed to August Sachtler (ca. 1839-1873): one looking southwest toward Telok Blanagah village and its hill, with a Malay man in the foreground; the other looking southeast toward the roadstead, with many ships in the background and a canon in the foreground, at least the former published in National Museum of Singapore, The image of our landscape (2009). Sachtler gained experience as a photographer in the Prussian Expedition to Japan and China (1860-1862), came to Singapore in 1863 and worked there as a commercial photographer to his death in April 1873. He may have made some of the other photographs as well. They show the Jamae Mosque (ca. 1835) and Sri Mariamman Hindu temple (ca. 1827); six views of the botanical gardens established by Whampoa (1816-1880); a jungle plantation in operation (with 4 boats); jungle houses built on wooden stilts with roofs and some walls of reed; the Hôtel de l'Europe; the mission chapel; the gothic revival St Andrew's Cathedral (ca. 1861); … [Click Below for Full Description]

Co., also of Rochester, NY. They were the main printer of nurseryman's or salesman's sample catalogue plates for North America.

This album was put together from the late 1860's to the late 1880's. Plates are grouped into sections with the newer ones interleaved with the old.
