        3 eigenh. Briefen mit U.

      Darmstadt, Jänner bis Juni 1870. - Zusammen 6 SS. auf Doppelblättern. 8vo. Inhaltsreiche Korrespondenz mit dem Verleger George Westermann (1810-1879) über eine geplante Veröffentlichung: "Ihr gütiger Brief kam sehr zur Zeit, denn ich ging grade damit um, Ihnen zu schreiben. Freilich leider nicht mit einem Novellen-Manuscript für die Monatshefte in der Hand [.] In meiner neuen akademischen Tätigkeit [als Professor der Geschichte, Literatur und deutschen Sprache am Polytechnikum in Darmstadt] finde ich so vollauf und überreichlich zu thun, daß ich, seit ich in Darmstadt lebe, auch noch nicht einen Federstrich zu freier Production habe verwenden können. Tag und Nacht (ja wirklich, auch Nacht!) ist alle meine Thätigkeit für die Schule nöthig [.]" (Brief v. 26. I. 1870). Des weiteren werden Fragen der geplanten Veröffentlichung detailliert besprochen, so daß Roquette, der schließlich doch Zeit zum Schreiben finden sollte, ein halbes Jahr später dem Verleger gegenüber bemerken kann: "Die drei ersten Rezesionsbogen [?] meiner Novellensammlung [.] anbei zurück. Nur eines habe ich zu bemerken. Unten am Fuß der Bogen steht anstatt des Gesamttitels, den ich dem Buche zu geben wünschte [-] ‘Welt und Haus’ - einfach ‘Novellen’ [.]" (Brief v. 16. VII. 1870). Am linken unteren Rand des Briefes merkt Westermann nach Erhalt des Briefes eh. an: "Ich habe ‘Novellen’ in ‘Welt und Haus’ ändern lassen, womit Du hoffentlich einverstanden sein wirst". - Das Buch selbst erschien im Jahr darauf tatsächlich unter dem von Roquette gewünschten Titel. - George Westermanns 1838 gegründete Verlagsbuchhandlung zählte mit ihrem umfangreichen Programm, das neben dem Schwerpunkt Wörterbücher, Reiseliteratur und kartographische Titel auch erzählende Literatur von Autoren wie Theodor Fontane, Hermann Hesse und Wilhelm Raabe umfaßte, zu den bedeutendsten Verlagen des 19. Jahrhunderts. - Zu Roquette vgl. Kosch III, 2300f. - Jeder Brief mit hs. Verfasservermerk von alter Hand auf Bl. 2 verso.

        In Fairyland

      Richard Doyleís Masterpiece[DOYLE, Richard, illustrator]. ALLINGHAM, William. In Fairyland. A Series of Pictures from the Elf-World. With a Poem, by William Allingham. London: Longmans, Green, Reader, & Dyer, 1870 [i.e., 1869].First edition, published at Christmas 1869 and post-dated 1870. Folio (14 7/8 x 10 3/4 inches; 377 x 274 mm.). [8], 31, [1, blank] pp. Frontispiece and fifteen plates, engraved on wood and printed in color by Edmund Evans.Original green morocco-grain cloth decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt on front cover and decoratively stamped in gilt on spine. Back cover ruled in blind. All edges gilt. Some very minor marginal soiling to a few leaves, but the plates are totally free from the foxing found in almost all copies. A wonderful example of what is considered Richard Doyleís masterpiece.ìIt is generally felt that Richard Doyle rose to his greatest heights with the graceful clusters of humanized and sentimentalized but endearing little elves he created for In Fairyland. In the case of this book the pictures preceded the text, a situation not uncommon in the history of illustrated childrenís books. The Irish poet William Allingham wrote verses to accompany Doyleís colorful fantasies. Edmund Evans produced the colored engravings; they are among the very finest examples of his work. Doyleís illustrations for In Fairyland were used again, in 1884, to illustrate Princess Nobody, an original fairy tale for children by Andrew Langî (Morgan Library, Early Childrenís Books).Engen, Doyle, p. 197.

        View of the Acropolis from the Musaeum Hill from The Acropolis of Athens (Plate 1)

      London: S.F. Ellis, 1870 Oval, 7½ x 9 ½ in. Carbon print on original mount. Some minor browning. Fine condition. This photograph is the first view from W. J. Stillman's, The Acropolis of Athens, a series of 25 photographs taken in 1869 and published together the following year. The 25 photographs open with four longer views of the Acropolis, eventually spiraling in toward the Parthenon. Scholar Andrew Szegedy-Maszak notes that this well-known first photograph in the series "exemplifies [Stillman's] pictorial practice." The Athenian Acropolis, one of the most famous landmarks of Ancient Greece, has been an important cultural and religious location since the 3rd millennium BCE. The most prominent building on the Acropolis, the Parthenon, was constructed between 447 and 438 BCE as a temple to Athena, although it eventually went on to serve as both a Christian church and a Muslim mosque. In this photograph, one can see a bell tower that was added by the Christian Franks in the 13th century. It was torn down only five years after Stillman's work was published. An eccentric personality who excelled in many fields, including painting, art criticism, photography and journalism, Stillman held ties with preeminent art theorist, John Ruskin, and co-founded the first serious American art journal, The Crayon. When Stillman took up his most important photographic endeavor, The Acropolis of Athens, the aesthetic and philosophical positions he had formed in his earlier career as an artist greatly influenced the composition of his photographs. As a reviewer reported in The Atlantic about one of Stillman's earlier works, "the points of view are chosen with the fine feeling of an artist.".

        126 Extra-Beilagen, deutsch-französischer Krieg 1870 - 1871, aus Würzburger Stadt- und Landbote

      - 126 Extra-Beilagen zum deutsch-französischen Krieg 1870/1871. Kartondeckel (8°), eingelegt 126 Ein-Blatt-Drucke verschiedener Formate (min. ca. 11x17). Die Stücke waren ehedem alle oben zusammengenäht, ca. ½ sind lose aber chronologisch stimmig. Teils mit Läsuren, Flecken, sonst gut. Ca. 2/3 der Drucke datieren auf August und September 1870. Die Drucke („Extra-Beilage" genannt) lagen meist dem „Würzburger Stadt- und Landboten" bei (dazu kommen solche der „Bayerischen Volks-Zeitung", der „Neuen Würzburger Zeitung und Anzeiger" und ca. 1x des „Würzburger Journal"). Die Stücke sind teils nicht separat datiert, es ergibt sich jedoch eine klare Chronologie von 7. August 1870 (Blatt 1 ganz unten) bis Ende März 1871 (Blatt 123 ganz oben). Dazu lose beiliegend (und ehedem nicht angenäht) Extra Beilage mit Inhalten von Telegrammen vom 17. und 18.7.1870, „Extra-Beilage Nr. 233" mit „Fest-Programm zur Feier des Friedensschlusses" am Sonntag den 5.3.1871 und Doppel des Blattes „Friede" (zum 1.3.1871). Die Inhalte der Beilagen gehen oft auch Berichte damaliger Nachrichtenagenturen (oft „Wagner’s tel. Corr.-Bureau") und offizielle Nachrichtenverlautbarungen (durch Telegramme u.ä.) zurück. So berichtet Blatt 1 von Folgen der Schlacht bei Wörth, Blatt 123 von der erwarteten Rückkehr des 27. bayerischen Landwehrbataillons (welches „noch heute" in Würzburg eintreffen soll).

        United States Capitol

      Fine Large-format Photograph of the Capitol. This dramatic photograph of the United States Capitol shows the building ca. 1870, after the completion of the new dome and the extensions. The view shows the east side of the building, as seen from the northeast. There are signs of construction evident in the image, and a number of people and two horse-drawn carriages are visible. The photograph was taken within a few years of 1867, when the cheek blocks beside the Senate steps were installed. The photograph shows the rails for a street car system, for which termini were constructed on the Capitol grounds. Thomas Jefferson insisted the legislative building be called the "Capitol" rather than "Congress House." The word "Capitol" comes from Latin and is associated with the Roman temple to Jupiter Optimus Maximus on Capitoline Hill. The name, which followed the example of Virginia's House of Burgesses' "Capitoll" authorized in 1699, signified the national aspirations for a republic steeped in the ancient Roman virtues of citizenship and self-government. During the Civil War some objected to continued construction of the building, but Lincoln insisted it continue, saying, "If people see the Capitol going on, it is a sign we intend the Union to go on." On March 4, 1865, Lincoln delivered his Second Inaugural Address from the East Portico, visible here, declaring, "With malice toward none, with charity for all ..." The U.S. Capitol is, apart from the Statue of Liberty, the greatest symbol of America and perhaps the nation's most famous and most important single building. Albumen print, mounted. 15 1/2 x 9 1/2 in. Mount darkened, some darkening and minimal surface wear to image, but generally in very good condition.

        Abraham Lincoln] Yours truly. A. Lincoln

      1870 - Steel-faced copper plate with a photogravure of Lincoln: 11 1/2 x 9 inches; image: 8 x 6 inches. Head and torso portrait of Lincoln in 3/4 profile with facsimile signature This photogravure of Abraham Lincoln is a reversed image of a photograph taken in 1858 by Alexander Hesler, to which a beard and facsimile signatuve have been added. Hesler took several excellent photo portraits of Lincoln in the days before he became President. The prints made from this plate clearly, were produced to meet the demand for portraits after the assassination, (though we have been unable to locate an example of the print). It is in any event, this is a fine memorial portrait of the President, emphasizing his calmness and seriousness.

        The photographic archive, papers, and relics of William Kennoch, Secret Service Agent

      More than 1000 photographs, more than 125 letters, extensive diaries and memoranda books, plus relics, manuscripts, and ephemera as detailed below. Very good condition overall. The photographs are preserved in two half morocco cases. Kennoch, who was born in Edinburgh in 1841, joined the Secret Service early in 1870 after a career as a cigar smuggler. He soon became an expert in counterfeiting cases. The U.S. Secret Service was created in 1865 to combat counterfeiting, which accounted for one-third of the currency then in circulation. It also investigated crimes from bank robbery and murder to illegal gambling. Kennoch (whose name was often given as "Kennock" in the books and newspapers of the day), served until his death at 46 in 1887. His obituary noted that he "was probably better acquainted with counterfeiters, their ways and haunts than any other detective in the country." Hiram C. Whitley, Chief of the Secret Service under U.S. Grant, called Kennoch one of his "ablest" agents in his autobiography. Kennoch maintained extensive photographic files containing annotated cartes de visite of fugitives, criminals and other wanted men and women. Many of the photographs are annotated with names and aliases of the perpetrators and wanted criminals, crimes committed, and conviction and arrest dates. Most are annotated with the locations and names of their photographers. This is an extraordinary archive documenting the life of a federal law officer and the criminals he tracked for more than fifteen years in post-Civil War America. In addition to the enormous photographic holdings, the collection includes many manuscripts, relics, and ephemera from Kennoch's dramatic career. This tremendous collection, reflecting American financial, social, criminal, business, and photographic history, offers limitless research and exhibition possibilities. Please inquire for details.

Dürer's famous treatise on the fortification of towns, villages and castles, was published in 1527 as "Etliche Unterricht, zur Befestigung der Städte, Schlösser und Flecken". Translated from the German by Alexandre Ratheau who contributed an extended introduction which examines Dürer's work in historical perspective. Ratheau is also responsible for the fine illustrations in the book, engraved and printed in Paris. "The book goes beyond being an instruction manual on the design of a fortified city. Dürer's plan was functional, pragmatic, and socially responsible, and the purpose of its design was to improve the status and lifestyle of German artisans." - Tessa Morrison: "Albrecht Dürer and the Ideal City" (Parergon 2014).
