        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Tribschen, 30. IX. 1871. - 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-4to. An den namentlich nicht genannten August Frhr. v. Loën, Generalintendant des Hoftheaters und der Hofkapelle in Weimar, wegen der Errichtung des Festspielhauses in Bayreuth: "Bei meiner kürzlich erfolgten Zusendung eines Briefes aus Genf erlaubte ich mir im gedrängten Umrisse anzudeuten, worauf es mir jetzt anzukommen scheine. Ich vermag nun aus Ihren heute von mir empfangenen werthen Zeilen nicht genügend zu ermessen, ob Sie hierin mir eine indirecte - ablehnende, oder nur eine differirende - hinausschiebende Antwort ertheilen wollten. Dass die Unternehmung in Betreff der für Sie zu erwartenden äusseren Theilnahme, noch im allerersten Stadium sich befindet, ist mir in Anbetracht der Umstände, nämlich der bis jetzt noch vermiedenen eigentlichen Oeffentlichkeit, sowie der Lähmung der privatim wirkenden Kräfte durch sommerliche Zersplitterung der Gesellschaft, leicht erklärlich. Sonach begreife ich auch die Nothwendigkeit, die Ergebnisse der bevorstehenden Herbst- und Winter-Saison einerseits abzuwarten, andrerseits durch regsame Beeinflussung auf diese Ergebnisse einzuwirken [.] Ich erwarte in kürzester Frist vom Architekten [d. i. Hofbaumeister Otto Brückwald aus Leipzig, 1841-1917] die Berechnung der mindesten Kosten für die Vorarbeiten des Baues in diesem Winter: es kommt mir nun darauf [an], von der anderen Seite her zu erfahren, in welchem Verhältniss hierzu die Beiträge, auf welche wir für jetzt und für den Lauf des Winters rechnen können, stehen. Daher denn mein ergebenstes Ersuchen an Sie, über diesen letzteren Punkt mir Klarheit zu verschaffen: ich habe Frau v. Schleinitz aufgefordert, Ihre Sammlungen Ihnen zu nennen und deren Beitrag Ihnen zu Verfügung zu stellen. Mir sind viele Zeichnungen persönlich gemeldet worden. Der Kaiser hat sich für 25 Nummern bereit erklärt. Mannheim und Wien müssen schon bedeutende Zeichnungen aufweisen können [.]". - Die Grundsteinlegung des Festspielhauses fand am 22. V. 1872, Wagners 50. Geburtstag, statt. - Die mit Cosima befreundete Frfr. Marie von Schleinitz (1842-1912) förderte von Berlin aus entscheidend die Festspielidee. WBV 5898.

        [The Francis Fry Collection of Printed Bibles]

      [n.p.:] Privately printed, [dated 1871 in pencil] This is an extraordinary privately produced catalogue of Fry's Bible collection, mostly devoted to early English Bibles, but including also some foreign Bibles. It was produced on an early gelatin duplicator and so was probably limited to only a handful of copies. The leaves are divided into four columns, ruled in red: one each for date, printer, size and supplementary notes on binding, cost and location of other copies. Nineteenth-century vellum, gilt, by Waters of Newcastle, title stamped in gilt at center of front cover. Folio (330 x 202 mm.). . 30 leaves, with versos blank, of hand-written text reproduced on a gelatin duplicator; bound up with five autograph letters (see below). A few leaves lightly spotted. Most interesting is Fry's introductory summary of the collection in which he reveals his enthusiasm for improving imperfect copies of books by supplying missing leaves from other copies: "Every book is collated throughout unless so stated, good and in fine order or in some cases well repaired. Most are picked copies?all bad and worn leaves taken out and good ones put in before binding. Several copies of some cut up to make a fine copy?always of the same edition. I have been positive to use the same edition always. I could have perfected copies with leaves of other editions that would read and would never have been known, but I have not done so..." The practice of improving imperfect copies of books by supplying missing pages from others or by carefully hand-drawn or traced facsimiles was not seriously frowned on in [Fry's] day. His contemporary Robert Curzon, who bought Bibles from him, described Fry as "a Quaker and a maker of Chocolate and Bibles, which he makes up from imperfect copies" (Oxford DNB, quoting from A.L.N. Munby).

        Turkish Harems and Circassian Homes

      London: Hurst & Blackett,, 1871. Octavo (210 × 134 mm). Recent red half morocco on old marbled boards by Trevor Lloyd, black morocco label, wavy gilt roll to the bands, floral device to the compartments, marbled edges and endpapers. Chromolithographic frontispiece and title page, after drawings by the author, lithography by Hanhart. A little rubbed on the boards, slight foxing front and back, light browning, else very good. First edition. Uncommon, and illuminating account of a yacht cruise to Constantinople, the Crimea, and Circassia. "Although the majority of the book is about her travels in Russia, it is packaged as harem literature, using the words 'harem' and 'Circassian' in the title to attract readers. Offering a mix of harem and travel account, the descriptions of harems and Ottoman women are combined with Harvey's careful observation of landscape, towns, street scenes, and aspects of domestic life such as food traditions and cooking … Like Lady Brassey's books that had their origins in letters written home, Harvey's work was apparently based on diaries entries made during her travels. Unlike Brassey's limited interest in the lives of women abroad, Harvey positioned herself to write extensively about the Turkish women that she met" (Lewis & Micklewright, Gender, Modernity and Liberty: Middle Eastern and Western Women's Writings, p. 101). Harvey had previously published a similar account of a cruise to the Levant, and subsequently wrote a travelogue on Spain. She published fiction under the pseudonym of Andrée Hope.

      Madrid: Urbano Manini, Calle de San Bernardo, Num. II / Calle de Serano, Num. 14, Barrio de Salamanca, 1871, 1872.. [4], 547, [1]; [4], [5]-580 pp. 8vo. Contemporary quarter calf. First edition. Illus. with 21 plates. Howes N170 (aa). Streeter Sale V: 2933. Palau 192632. Adams 1616. Cowan II, p. 455. "Much of this novel relates to California in the gold rush days, and there is much about well known California characters such as Joaquin Murieta" (Streeter Sale V, p.2034). "This book first appeared in Madrid, Spain, as a serial in 1871-1872. The author writes of early California in a narrative style, but most of his book consists of flights of fancy. In the second part of the first volume he weaves Joaqun Murieta into the story and deals with him at length, following the details of the California Police Gazette version of Murieta?s life very closely-so closely, in fact, that certain parts are merely translations from the English text into Spanish. He calls upon his imagination in relating Murieta?s early life and ancestry, " (Adams, Six-Guns and Saddle Leather, p.475). Rare. Last at auction in the Streeter Sale in 1968. Boards scuffed and edgeworn, hinges cracked, worm holes on inner margin, scattered foxing and soiling, one leaf with a marginal chip to the corner, a few signatures started, still overall a good copy of a scarce book.

        A bound volume of twenty offprints (first separate printings) by this distinguished Scottish surgeon. These include his important papers on 'the excision of one lateral half of the tongue' and 'the excision of the superior maxillary bone', an early pamphlet on a operation on a hermaphrodite and his 'lithotrity, and statistics of lithotomy'

      1871. 20 pamphlets bound in one, nineteenth-century buckram. George Buchanan (1827-1906), surgeon, son of Moses Steven Buchanan (1796–1860) surgeon to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary and lecturer on anatomy in the Portland Street medical school from 1836 to 1841, when he was appointed professor of anatomy in the Andersonian University. George Buchanan was educated at the University of Glasgow and went on to study under his father and others at the Andersonian University, he became M.D. St. Andrews and L.R.C.S. Edinburgh, and in 1852 fellow of the Royal Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. "In early life Buchanan volunteered to have chloroform anaesthesia demonstrated on himself, when his father performed a minor operation on him. He began to practise in Glasgow, but in 1856 he went to the Crimea as a civil surgeon. He returned to Glasgow at the end of the war, and was one of the first to practise there purely as a consulting surgeon. In 1860, when he succeeded his father as professor of anatomy in the Andersonian University, he was also appointed surgeon to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. He soon became known as a bold and skilful operator, and as a good teacher. He was the first to point out (in 1865 and 1867) the possibility and safety of removing half the tongue in cases of cancer, and he was among the first surgeons to remove the upper jaw (in 1864 and 1869). He gave reasons for preferring lithotrity to lithotomy in operating for stone in the adult male, in 1868, and he was the first to perform ovariotomy successfully in the west of Scotland, in 1863."—(Oxford DNB). 1.

        Original Double-Column Playbill for NELL or The Old Curiosity Shop

      1871. London: Olympic Theatre, February 4th [1871]. Approximately 17 inches by 13 inches. Original printed tissue-like paper. This is a double-column playbill almost entirely devoted to "NELL or The Old Curiosity Shop -- by Andrew Halliday... by special permission of the late Charles Dickens." The only date on the playbill is "Saturday, February 4th & Following Evenings"; the year was 1871, during the first February after Dickens's June 1870 death (February 4th was indeed on a Saturday in 1871). The left side gives all of the characters and their players (little Nell is played by Florence Terry, the younger sister of Ellen), while the right side provides details of the four Acts. (Two other plays are running as well -- "Poppleton's Predicaments" and "Paul and Virginia.")~The condition of this playbill is very good-plus, with scarcely any soil or wear, and no restoration. Its "issues" are due to its provenance: at the top is inked "Produced Nov 19, 1870" [opening night] and to the right of every single line is a faint ink check-mark. The clue to these annotations is on the verso: the small address label of Malcolm Morley of London, the noted scholar who authored the seminal work on Dickens's dramatic works; this was obviously a copy he referred to in his research. Bolton OCS #22 (plus see page 190).

      Boston Alexander Moore 1871 - First Edition With Ten Original Photographs KNEELAND, Samuel. The Wonders of Yosemite Valley, and of California. With original photographic illustrations, by John P. Soule. d. Boston: Alexander Moore, 1871. First edition. Octavo (10 3/8 x 6 7/8 inches; 265 x 174 mm). [iii]-xii, 13-71, [1, blank] pp. (Preliminaries are incorrectly numbered in all editions.) Complete with ten mounted albumen photographs by Soule of scenes in Yosemite, with tissue guards, and three wood-engraved text illustrations relating to Giant Sequoias, and two engraved maps. Text and photographs ruled in red. Original publisher's green pebble-grain cloth over beveled boards with front cover and spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt and black and rear cover decoratively stamped in blind. All edges gilt. Bookplate on front pastedown. A bit of rubbing to extremities. Head and tail of the spine shows wear. Light foxing, mostly to preliminaries and tissue guards. A very clean and bright copy. "Kneeland [1821-1888], a professor of zoology and physiology and secretary of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from its founding in 1865 until 1878, produced one of the better guide books to the Yosemite region. It is an especially attractive book due to the inclusion of an excellent series of mounted photographic images. The book is based on the author’s first visit to Yosemite Valley in July 1870. In addition to serving as a guide book, it forms a narrative of his trip from Boston to Yosemite and return. Kneeland made every effort to obtain current and accurate information and each of the later editions of the guide incorporates new material. The second edition adds ‘The Yosemite in 1872’ and ‘The Recent Earthquake in Yosemite.’ Though not identified by name, the account of the 1872 earthquake and much of ‘The Yosemite in 1872’ is based on information indirectly supplied by John Muir. It is the first appearance of Muir’s writings in a book" (Currey & Kruska). Cowan, p. 333 (third edition). Currey & Kruska 225. Farquhar 10b. Kimes & Kimes 3, 5, 7, and 8. Rocq 5217.

        Original Signed Carte de visite of Charles Darwin

      Studio of Oscar Gustave Rejlander, London 1871 - Fine. 4 x 2 1/2 inches. Original Carte de visite portrait of an older Charles Darwin in profile by noted Swedish/British photographer and Darwin collaborator (The Expressions of the Emotions in Man and Animals, 1872) Oscar Gustave Rejlander. The portrait is firmly and neatly signed on bottom center beneath the portrait by Darwin by the great man himself, and is signed in full by Rejlander on verso with his London studio address, 1 Albert Mansions, Victoria Street S.W. The carte de visite is also annotated on verso by American theologian Francis Ellingwood Abbot, "Received June 12, 1871 at Toledo, O. from Mr. Darwin in a private letter dated May 27." The Darwin/Abbot correspondence is at Harvard and includes the original letter from Darwin to Abbot in which he mentions sending along the Carte de visite as a token of his esteem and appreciation. "Francis Ellingwood Abbot (1836-1903) was a founder of the Free Religious Association and first editor of the radical journal, the Index. He developed an evolutionary philosophy of science and yearned to free humankind from pre-scientific religions, believing that people could escape the trap of agnosticism by adopting his vision of free religion." As such, Abbot was one of the first influential American supporters of Darwin's then radical ideas. A spectacular artifact in superb condition with exceptional association value and impeccable provenance. Darwin was a photography enthusiast. This is evident not only in his use of photography for the study of Expression and Emotions in Man and Animal, but can be witnessed in his many photographic portraits and in the extensive portrait correspondence that Darwin undertook throughout his lifetime. His close friend and botanist Joseph Dalton Hooker would come to call Darwin?s epistolary exchange of photographic images as his "carte correspondence". Hooker was jokingly lamenting his role as an intermediary for Darwin and his correspondents from around the globe in their exchange of carte-de-visites, or small photographic prints made in large numbers and printed on hard card for ease of exchange. While collecting photographic portraits of friends and relatives was not a pursuit unique to Darwin (the exchange of photographic images was a popular activity for many Victorians), when placed in the context of Darwin?s correspondence more broadly, we can see an interesting trend. When Darwin sent his photograph to a close ally, such as the Harvard botanist Asa Gray, or when he was given a photograph as a token of esteem by a colleague, such as Daniel Oliver at Kew, the image became more than just a physical reminder of likeness. It performed the same function that his correspondence as a whole did for him; it created and reinforced his experimental and scientific network. One of his correspondents was Oscar Rejlander, a well-known London-based photographer born in Sweden who integrated theater, classical art and photographic dexterity in all his work. Rejlander produced a number of photographs for Darwin of various forms of expression, the most famous of which was crying baby, later dubbed by the Victorian press as ?Ginx?s Baby?. Rejlander also took the opportunity to make some portraits of Darwin. These turned out to be, in Darwin?s own estimation, "The best photographs of me". [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The First Flight. (All plain sailing)

      London: J. McQueen, 24 June 1871. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by William Summers. 17 1/4 x 30 inches. 21 1/8 x 33 5/8 inches. Second issue of this fine print (first published 21 October 1867) from the 'McQueen's Steeple Chasings' series. A charming period piece. Very much of its time, all the animation in this plate is reserved for the spectators. The jockeys are depicted as completely impassive "there is more animation in a Sovereign's Escort of Life Guards trotting down the Mall on a wet morning than can be found in... Summers' engraving of these supposedly thrilling scenes" (Charles Lane Sporting Aquatints and their Engravers , vol.II, p.76). Lane presents this as a fault, but it is also what gives this image its charm, everything is beautifully observed, and the aquatinting is technically excellent, the landscape is finely realised and the crowd is full of incident but at the centre of the scene are these almost surreal figures passing through as if in a dream. Little is known of either Neville (Lane lists this and one other racing plate by him), or the engraver William Summers. Lane British Racing Prints p.143.

        The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex

      London: John Murray,, 1871. In Two Volumes. With Illustrations. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spines gilt, sides with panels blocked in blind, dark blue coated endpapers. Engravings throughout. Cloth a little rubbed at extremities with some small worn spots, spotting to half-titles, joints repaired. An excellent set. First edition, first issue with the errata on the verso of the title leaf of vol. II. Here the word "evolution" appears for the first time in any of Darwin's works, preceding its appearance in the sixth edition of The Origin of Species the following year. Darwin had hoped that one of his supporters might tackle the thorny question of human evolution, but was forced to face the logic of his own theory himself. Darwin deviated from his ostensible subject of mankind to describe sexual selection in the animal kingdom, enabling him to answer those who saw peacock tails as an expression of divine aesthetics. Darwin also set out a definite family tree for humans, tracing their affinity with the Old World monkeys, and laid out his views on the evolutionary origins of morality and religion. "The Descent, understood by Darwin as a sequel to the Origin, was written with a maturity and depth of learning that marked Darwin's status as an élite gentleman of science" (ODNB).

        A Cuvierian principle in palaeontology tested by evidences of an extinct leonine marsupial (Thylacoleo carnifex)

      Taylor & Francis London: Taylor & Francis, 1871. Owen, Richard (1804-92). A Cuvierian principle in palaeontology tested by evidences of an extinct leonine marsupial (Thylacoleo carnifex). Offprint from Philosophical Transactions 161 (1871). [2], 213-266pp. 4 lithographed plates. 275 x 211 mm. Disbound. Very good copy. Inscribed by Owen on the title: ?Prof. Rupert Jones NGS with the author?s best regards.? First Edition, Offprint Issue. Thylacoleo carnifex, or the ?marsupial lion,? was a carnivorous marsupial that lived in Australia between 2 million and 46 thousand years ago; it was first described in 1859 by Owen in his ?On the fossil mammals of Australia, part I? (Phil. Trans. 149: 309-322). Owen classified the extinct animal as a carnivore based on the structure of its lower jaw, but other naturalists, including William Flower and Hugh Falconer, disagreed, and ?the issue of the carnivorousness of Thylacoleo carnifex became one of the bitterest paleontological controversies of the 1860s. Falconer denounced Owen?s line of reasoning as ?facile? and Owen?s Darwinian foes, in particular the zoologist W. H. Flower, at the time conservator of the Hunterian Museum, joined in the highly personal attack . . . Owen yielded nothing, turning the controversy into a test case of Cuvierian functionalism and issuing a separate booklet on the controversy: A Cuvierian Principle in Palaeontology, Tested by Evidences of an Extinct Leonine Marsupial (Thylacoleo carnifex)? (Rupke, pp. 86-87). It appears that this ?separate booklet? is in fact the offprint of the fourth part of Owen?s ?On the fossil mammals of Australia? (Phil. Trans. 161 [1875]: 213-266), as this is the title that appears on the leaf following the offprint title-page, and the pagination of the separate offprint is identical to that of the article in the Philosophical Transactions. Owen presented this copy to British paleontologist Thomas Rupert Jones (1811?1911), the editor of Lartet and Christy?s Reliquiae Aquitanicae (1875), which recorded the discovery of Cro-Magnon man. Rupke, Richard Owen, Victorian Naturalist, pp. 85-87.

        Anglo-American Atlantic yacht race of 1870. Start of the Yachts Dauntless and Cambria from Queenstown for New York on the 4th. July

      London: Published by Wm. Foster, 25 May, 1871. Tinted lithograph, finished by hand, drawn on stone by Dutton after "a painting by R.L. Stopford", sheet size: 20 x 27 3/8 inches. Fine condition. A dramatic scene illustrating the start of the Trans-Atlantic race of 1870, by the celebrated maritime painter Thomas Dutton. Thomas Dutton was one of the greatest nineteenth century maritime painters. His emotive works display a genuine love of the sea and his careful depiction of detail provides a wonderful record of the important vessels of the age. The 108-foot Cambria, owned by James Ashbury of the Royal Harwich Yacht Club , raced the Dauntless, owned by James Gordon Bennett of the New York Yacht Club, from Queenstown, Ireland, to New York on 4 July 1870. The Cambria arrived first, making the crossing in 23 days, 5 hours 17 minutes and 15 seconds, just under two hours ahead of the Dauntless. After recuperating for 11 days the Cambria took part in the first true Americas Cup race. She competed against a field of 23 American yachts, and lost to the Magic by 40 minutes, finishing in 10th place overall. Dutton expertly captures the exciting moment of the start of the Trans-Atlantic race, and shows the great beauty and style of this remarkable ship.
