        STATEMENT OF THE CONDITION AND RESOURCES OF THE KANSAS CENTRAL RAILWAY (NARROW GAUGE) FROM LEAVENWORTH, KANSAS TO DENVER, COLORADO

Map with a few scattered fox marks and some discoloration along folds. Very good. In a blue morocco and cloth clamshell box. A prospectus for the Kansas Central Railway, which proposed to connect Denver with the Missouri River at Leavenworth, Kansas. Considered to be one of the most significant attempts to connect Denver with eastern states and transport, the railway managed only to construct approximately 165 miles of narrow gauge track west to Miltonvale, Kansas between its foundation in 1871 and 1882. The railway was then subsumed by Union Pacific, which by 1890 had reconstructed the existing track as a standard gauge line. "Not in McMurtrie. The map is of exceptional interest, with various routes marked in red. The report of Professor Mudge describes the country to be opened up by the new route through the Delaware strip" - Eberstadt.

        Table for Transmitting Chinese Despatches by Telegraph, containing all characters employed in official, commercial, or private correspondence of Chinese, and their translation in numbers

      Folio (28.5 x 43 cm). 16 pp, mounted on linen. Contemporary half black roan, marbled boards, worn, separated at spine. Dampstaining. Very rare. FIRST EDITION. The Great Northern Telegraph Company introduced the telegraph in China in 1871. This rare volume enabled its use in Chinese, marking an epoch in the history of commerce. The first two pages provide instructions in Chinese, English, and French, and the other fourteen pages comprise a table assigning a four-digit number to each of thousands of Chinese characters. Viguier writes in small part, "In view of the early arrival in Shanghai of the submarine cable ... connecting this great centre of trade with the colony of Hongkong, and the southern provinces of the Empire, it becomes very important, in order to increase the native trade, by facilitating communications between the different markets, to enable the Chinese traders to employ this telegraph." The Chinese Recorder observed that the telegraph, "bringing into contact the most distant nations, marks an epoch in the progress of civilization" and reported in 1874 that Viguier's system is now 'extensively used" by the Chinese.

First edition in book form of George Eliot's sixth and greatest novel. The book proved problematic in some ways as it became too long for the traditional three-decker format. George Henry Lewes suggested to Blackwood that "on the model of Victor Hugo's Les misérables, it should be brought out in eight parts at two-monthly intervals, and subsequently published in four volumes" (ONDB).

        AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND.

      New York: George Routledge and Sons, 1871. First American Edition. The British sheets, with the title canceled for American distribution. With illustrations by Arthur Hughes. 8vo,, publisher's original cloth, the spine and upper cover with gilt and black decoration and ornate lettering, t.e.g., enclosed in a custom clamshell box. viii, 378pp. The spine has been expertly laid down, and recased, preserving nearly all the original material and the original end-papers, otherwise a fine fresh copy. AN IMPORTANT WORK OF CHILDREN'S LITERATURE. MacDonald touches on many theological and philosophical questions, especially concerning theodicy. It is considered one of his masterpieces. NORTH WIND is a fantasy centered on a boy named Diamond and his adventures with the North Wind. Diamond travels together with the mysterious Lady North Wind through the nights. There are many similarities between Diamond and MacDonald's own son Maurice, who died young. Diamond also seems to represent Christ, always trying to help others while not completely belonging to this world. The work is better known through the abridged edition of 1914 with illustrations by Maria L. Kirk. This original edition is nearly three times longer then that overly simplified version.

        Missa Solennis (Full Score)

      J. Schuberth & Co, Leipzig 1871 - Tan paper over boards; Dark brown cloth at spine; 129 pp. comprised totally of a musical score. Oversize (15 x 21.5 inches) and heavy (7.5 pounds / 3.4 kilos). The mass was composed by Franz Liszt between 1855 and 1858 for the dedication of the new part of the cathedral at Esztergom, Hungary (by Archbishop Janos Scitovszky). Liszt conducted the work, and the organist was Alexander Winterberger. The dedication concert (the work's premiere) was on August 31, 1856. The reverberation time in the cathedral is 9 seconds (Wikipedia), creating the potential for an acoustic nightmare in performing a piece of this magnitude! The performance was attended by 4,000 guests, including Emperor Franz Joseph I and other imperial majesties of Austria-Hungary, ecclesiastical dignitaries, well-known musicians, and members of the press. After the premiere, Liszt (and others) continued to make various small changes and corrections to the original score. The first publication was in 1859, by the Imperial Printing House, Vienna, followed by subsequent editions and variations (piano reductions, etc.) by J. Schuberth (1871.), G. Schirmer (1909.), etc. This particular edition/volume contains NO individual parts (violin, flute, soprano, etc.) for actual performance but IS an actual, complete copy of the entire conductor's score, meaning that it includes all the orchestral, organ, vocal soloist (SATB), and choral (SATB) parts (with vocal text) all together for a conductor to use in rehearsal or performance. This edition was published by J. Schuberth & Co. (no date), likely in Leipzig (rather than New York or Philadelphia), as the names of the instruments are listed in German, and the price on the front cover is listed in Thaler, an old German/European coinage. The work is complete: Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Benedictus, Agnus Dei, with all parts readable, even where margins are chipped. An excellent copy for the conducting student, Liszt afficionado, musical researcher, or someone interested in Hungarian/Esztergom ecclesiastical history. (For an excellent article by Morten Solvik on Liszt's writing of this work, see this link from the American Symphony Orchestra's web site. Fair (Ex-lib., usual markings; heavy wear to extremities of boards; spine mostly gone; front and back boards detached but present; ffep and title pages detached and heavily chipped; main block secure and mostly in good condition but with brittle page edges) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        La Prusse s'Arrêtant. La Ligne Exacte De Démarcation De L'Armistice. Le contour de l'animal montre d'une maniere Absolument Exacte les lignes occupées par les belligérants pendant l'armistice.

      1871 - London: Edward Stanford, 14th February 1871. Tinted lithograph, sheet 405 x 525mm. A few repairs. An extremely rare broadsheet caricature map of France at the end of the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1), with the area occupied by the Prussians depicted as a lion's head with the face of Wilhelm I. After France declared war in July 1870 the Prussians mobilised more quickly and swept into northern France and within two months had captured Napoleon III and had Paris under siege. The fall of the French capital on 28th January 1871 led to an armistice while the terms of the French surrender could be agreed. Two weeks later this pro-French propaganda map was published in London, using the symbolism of the carnivorous lion because 'of the uncontrollable voracity of Prussia exemplified by the veracity of their present demands', which included the annexation of both Alsace and Lorraine. The success of these demands led to the rise of 'revanchism' in France and British concern about the balance of power in Europe, both major factors in the outbreak of the First World War

        Al-Kitab al-Muqaddas, Ay Kutub al-’Ahd al-Qadim wa al ahd al Jadeed. The Holy Bible. Old and New Testaments. TWO VOLUMES IN ONE.

      British and Foreign Bible Society, Oxford 1871 - 1258 pp., / 422 pp., Arabic text within borders, contemporary embossed calf, worn, title gilt on spine, hinges weak, speckled red, copy inside clean & in very good condition, translated from the original Hebrew and Chaldee and Greek texts. The most popular translation is the Van Dyck Version, funded by the Syrian Mission and the American Bible Society. The project was the brainchild of Eli Smith, and started around 1847, centred in Beirut. After Eli Smith's death it was completed under the direction of Cornelius Van Allen Van Dyck. Others involved included Nasif al Yaziji, Boutros al Bustani, and Yusuf al-Asir. The New Testament was completed on March 9, 1860, followed by the Old Testament on March 10, 1865. The original manuscript is preserved in the Near East School of Theology Library in Beirut. About 10 million copies of this version have been distributed since 1865. It has been accepted by the Coptic Church and the Protestant churches. This translation was based mostly on the same Textus Receptus as the King James Version of the Bible, and follows a more literal style of translation. Most printings of the Van Dyck version uses the same basic printing plates which have been employed for years (possibly the same plates that were made when the translation was first adopted). These plates employ the "stacking" version of writing Arabic, in which, for example, letters that precede other specified letters, such as jim, are written vertical to rather than horizontal to that letter. This style of Arabic can be hard to read at times, especially for non-native students of Arabic. More recently, newer printings of the Van Dyck have been made which employ a more common, straightforward Arabic font. The Van Dyck translation was done at the beginning of the revival of Modern Standard Arabic as a literary language, and consequently many of the terms coined did not enter into common use. One indication of this is a recent edition of the Van Dyck printed by the Bible Society in Egypt, which includes a glossary of little-understood vocabulary, with around 3000 entries. In addition to obsolete or archaic terms, this translation uses religious terminology that Muslim or other non-Christian readers may not understand Is?a?, a Syriac borrowing meaning a chapter of the Bible; ????? tajdif, the word for blasphemy.) It should also be noted that an Arab Muslim reading the Bible in Arabic (especially if reading the New Testament) will find the style quite different from the style that is used in the Qur'an (this is more or less true of all Arabic translations of the Bible). Also of note is the fact that religious terminology familiar to Muslims was not used very much in this version of the Bible, as is the case in most Arabic versions of the Bible. Size: 4to.

        Les Prêtres, 1871

      Unpag. album containing a total of 42 lithographed political cartoons and caricatures, from a numbered suite of 29 unique and individual images, most images presented in duplicate with some examples featuring hand-coloring and some in the original black-and-white, depicting French military and political figures from the time of the end of the Franco-Prussian War, the siege of Paris, the Paris Commune, and the Armistice of Versailles, including Ernest Picard, Gustave Flourens, the Marquis de Galliffet, and Louis Veuillot, together with allegorical figures and other stylized characterizations, each captioned below the image and with Moloch's signature within the plate. Some scattered toning and very minor foxing. Folio. Half-calf with marbled boards. Some abrasions especially along spine. Paris (Chez Deforêt et César/Talons) 1871. Hector Moloch was a French cartoonist and caricaturist who published his works in journals and newspapers such as Chanteclair, La Fronde, L'Éclipse, Le Greot, Le Pêle-mêle, Le Chambard Socialiste, L'Assiette au Beurre, and others. These caricatures are an important historical document from a time of great political and social upheaval in Paris. Very scarce; as of January 2018, WorldCat locates one copy of a similar title in a North American institution, but with what appears to be one copy of each of the caricatures.

        Electoral Disabilities of Women. A Lecture Delivered at the New Hall, Tavistock, March 11th, 1871

      [n.p.]: Printed for the Bristol & West of England Society of Women's Suffrage by the Tavistock Printing Company, 1871. First edition. Disbound and stitched at the spine; front wrapper partially detached with small paper loss to upper left corner not affecting text. Internally clean and complete, with all 23 pages unmarked and bright. A Near Fine copy of this exceptionally rare pamphlet, which does not appear in modern auction records or at any institutions according to OCLC. A suffragist rather than a more militant suffragette, Dame Millicent Fawcett employed dispassionate, rational arguments to make a case for women's rights. The lecture recorded in this pamphlet is a prime example of her methods, as the Electoral Disabilities of Women sets out and deconstructs seven common arguments against women's enfranchisement. Drawing on the philosophy of John Stuart Mill and Erasmus Darwin, Fawcett calls for logical consistency in Britain's application of disability laws, asserting that if concerns about women's intellect, emotion, or education levels are what bar them from civic participation, those same concerns must shape when and how men gain the right to vote.

        5 Verlags-Scheine mit eigenh. Unterschrift.

      Wien, 6. XII. 1870 - 9. IX. 1871. - Je ½ bis 1 S. 4to. In den handschriftlichen abgefaßten Verlags-Scheinen überläßt der Komponist der Hofmusikalienhandlung Carl Haslinger die Rechte an verschiedenen Kompositionen (Walzer, Polkas, Quadrillen, Märsche etc.) und quittiert zugleich den Empfang der vereinbarten Honorare. - Wenige Jahre später sollte sich der Komponist verpflichten, sämtliche seiner Werke dem neuen Verlagsinhaber des renommierten Hauses Robert E. Lienau exklusiv zu überlassen, was aber schließlich den Verlag, der einst so erfolgreich mit den Werken der Familie Strauss war, auch nicht mehr retten konnte: War es Carl Haslinger noch gelungen, Johann Strauß Sohn und dessen Bruder Josef an sich zu binden, so sollten doch die Werke des jungen Johann Strauß nur mehr bis op. 278 erscheinen, und "es ist nicht bekannt, warum er und sein Bruder dann zu C. A. Spina hinüberwechselten. Zum Unglück für Haslinger leitete das op. 279, der ‘Morgenblätterwalzer’ von Strauss, dessen Meisterwerke ein, die also endgültig an die Konkurrenz verloren gingen. Aber schon erstand in C. M. Ziehrer ein neuer Stern am Himmel der Tanzmusik, seine Werke erschienen bis op. 209, dann schloß sich noch Josef Kaulich an [.]" (MGG V, 1767, Art. Haslinger). - Mit hs. Registraturvermerken verso.
