        Aida Opera in quattro atti Versi di A. Ghislanzoni... Diritto di traduzione riservato Canto e pianoforte in quarto = Franchi 50. [Piano-vocal score]

      Milano: Edizioni Ricordi [PN 42602], 1872. First Edition, second issue of the first version of the opera. Hopkinson 62A(a). Fuld p. 590. Chusid p. 12. Crawford (third issue) p. 565. Verdi's Aida was first performed in Cairo at the Cairo Opera House on December 24, 1871. The Italian première, to which Verdi devoted great attention, took place in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on February 8, 1872. "There is... one important aspect in which Aida remains the most radical and 'modern' of Verdi's scores: its use of local colour. Aida, constantly alluding to its ambience in harmony and instrumentation, is the one Verdi opera that could not conceivably be transported to another geographical location. In this respect it was an important indication of the influence local colour would come to have over fin-de-siècle opera, and an object lesson on the delicacy and control with which this colour could be applied to the standard forms and expressive conventions of Italian opera."

        Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In. A delineation by pen and pencil of the mountains, rivers, lakes, forests, water-falls, shores, cañons, valleys, cities, and other picturesque features of our country. With Illustrations on Steel and Wood, by Eminent American Artists.

      New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1872–4 - 2 volumes, quarto (312 × 239mm). Publisher's brown hard-grain full morocco, decorative blind-tooled and gilt lettered spines, elaborate floriate borders on sides, gilt lettered on front covers, all edges gilt, richly gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, A few scrapes to bindings, occasional thumbing but an excellent set. Steel-engraved frontispieces and vignette titles, 45 steel-engraved plates, numerous wood-engraved illustrations in the text. First edition of this monumental work of celebratory Americana, edited by the American Romantic poet William Cullen Bryant. The majority of the superb plates were engraved by Robert Hinshelwood, a Scottish engraver who emigrated to America in 1835 where he established a considerable reputation for his work on landscapes. His painstaking and highly detailed work was much appreciated not only by the publishing houses that employed him, such as Appleton's and Harper's, but also by the Continental Bank Note Company who for a time employed him producing plates for currency. In her recent study of Picturesque America, the historian of American graphic arts, Sue Rainey, notes that the book "enabled Americans, after the trauma of the Civil War, to construct a national self-image based on reconciliation between North and South and incorporation of the West" (Creating Picturesque America, 2001, p. xiii).

First edition. Ball was a freethinker born in Birmingham in 1844. He 'taught pyrotechny in the Sultan’s service 1870â€"71. Received the order of the Medjidieh after narrow escape from death by the bursting of a mortar. Upon his return published Poems from Turkey (Wheeler, A Biographical Dictionary of Freethinkers of All Ages and Nations).

In the preface Ball, who was 'intimately connected with the Crystal Palace firework displays' (p. iv) explains what inspired him to his poetry: 'The free open scenery, the sweet fresh air, the wonderful reality as it seemed of Nature ever clad in bright sunshine, the many sights through which I was continually passing, spending each morning by the Bosphorus waves, and each afternoon traversing the Golden Horn to the Sweet Waters of Europe, where, beside the wide smooth stream and beneath the free open mountain-hills, my "Factory" of scattered white canvas sheds and green pavilion tents (not over now) spread itself in sunshine and cooling breeze; the triumph and strange novelty of speaking and writing Turkish successfully - the kindness and courtesy I met with - the respect and confidence I achieved - the success of all that I did - the beautiful sense of romance about everything, made it a period of deeply pleasant feelings' (pp. iii f.).

        La vuelta de Martín Fierro. 2º edición adornada con 10 láminas

      Librería Del Plata 187 , Buenos Aires - "El "poema Nacional" argentino – rarísima 2º edición de "Maríin Fierro". MUY RARA 2º EDICIÓN DE LA 2º PARTE DEL MARTÍN FIERRO, EL POEMA NACIONAL GUACHESCO ARGENTINO. El Gaucho Martín Fierro es un poema narrativo argentino, escrito en verso por José Hernández en 1872, obra literaria considerada ejemplar del género gauchesco en Argentina, Uruguay y Río Grande del Sur (al sur de Brasil). Presentamos aquí la 2º parte de esta obra, publicada por primera vez en 1879, llamada "La Vuelta de Martín Fierro". El autor narra en esta obra el carácter independiente, heroico y sacrificado del gaucho. Leopoldo Lugones, en su obra literaria El payador calificó a este poema como "el libro nacional de los argentinos" y reconoció al gaucho su calidad de genuino representante del país, emblema de la argentinidad. Para Ricardo Rojas representaba el clásico argentino por antonomasia. Todas las temprana ediciones del Martín Fierro y La Vuelta de Martín Fierro son muy difíciles de encontrar. No encontramos ejemplares de esta edición en OCLC. "Very rare second edition of the second part of Martin Fierro, the national gaucho poem of Argentina". 8vo; old stamp from Oscar Carbone, prestigeous Argentinean collector; 19th century. The Gaucho Martín Fierro is an Argentine Narrative Poem written in verse by José Hernández in 1872, a literary work considered the example of the Gaucho genre in Argentina, Uruguay, and Río Grande do Sul (southern Brazil). We offer here the second part of this work, published for the first time in 1879, called The Return of Martín Fierro. The author narrates in this work the independent, heroic, and sacrificial life of the gaucho. Leopoldo Lugones in his literary work El Payador classifies this poem as the "national book of the Argentinians" and recognized the gaucho as a genuine representative of the nation, an emblem of Argentinism. For Ricardo Rojas it represented the Argentine classic by name alone. All the early editions of Martín Fierro and La Vuelta de Martín Fierro are very difficult to find. We do not find copies of this edition on OCLC. 63 pp páginas [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Machzor] Kefi Minhag America: Tefilot Bnei Yeshurun le-Rosh Hashana. [The Divine Service of American Israelites for the New Year].

      Cincinnati Bloch & Co 1872 - Two volumes, duodecimo (17.2 x 12 cm). New Year - 212 pp.; Atonement - 307, [1], 55, [1] pp. Parallel texts in English and Hebrew, with psalms with additional German translation. Original dark brown cloth boards with gilt lettering to spines, gilt edges and blind-stamped decoration to covers of New Year volume; slight wear to edges. Atonement volume with stamp of Tobias Schanfarber to lower pastedown. A very nice copy. One of the first accepted Reform prayer books for the High Holidays in the United States. The volumes include numerous non-traditional prayers in English and German that are almost Protestant in tone, whilst omitting a number of traditional prayers such as Utnah Toqef, Kol Nidre and most of the Al Chets. The inclusion of German in the Siddur testifies to the essentially German character of the nineteenth century American denomination of Reform Judaism. This Siddur was intended to serve as the common prayer-book for all of America's Jews. Nevertheless, the community remained divided over traditional versus liberal payer-books and neither became dominant. The publisher of the volumes, Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise (1819-1900), was a pioneer of Reform Judaism, and became its acknowledged leader and institutional architect. Wise organised the formation of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (1873), the Hebrew Union College (1875) and the Central Conference of American Rabbis (1889). The reforms that he instituted sought to modernise Jewish teaching and adapt Jewish lifestyle to the conditions of life in a new land. Wise also played a crucial role in establishing the Central Conference of American Rabbis, in 1889, of which he later became president. The Union prayer-book was assigned by the Conference to all Reform congregations. The prayer-book was first published by Rabbi Wise in 1857 and was intended to address the initial conflict in the United States between supporters and opponents of traditionalism in early Reform Judaism. The roots of this Machzor date back to a programme Wise had laid out in the May 1847 issue of Isaac Leeser's Occident, in which he argues that American Jews came "from different countries, and, brought with them diverse Minhagim; and this circumstance must always prove a source of confusion and disagreement in the various Synagogues" and that it was necessary to create a new Minhag (custom of prayer) to "bring unity among. all the American Synagogues" and to "uphold the Word of the Living God. in the free country of America", without "the desire for innovation, nor the thirst for fame, nor a giddy disposition for reform".

        Collection of Twenty-three Tavern License Applications from Indiana County, Pennsylvania

      Indiana County, Pennsylvania, 1872. Various sizes, bulk measure approximately 30 x 19 cm. Twenty-three court documents related to the sale of liquor and operation of a public house or tavern in Indiana County, Pennsylvania, located east of Pittsburgh. Indiana County's first court convened in a tavern in 1806, testament to the integral role taverns played in American public life. These later documents submitted to and generated by the "Honorable judges of the court of quarter sessions in and for Indiana County" include petitions from applicant, certificates attesting to applicant's character signed by citizens, and bond. Most documents handwritten, with the latest applications (1865 and 1872) appearing as a printed form completed in the applicant's hand. Consistent contractual language used throughout. The charge for public houses is to provide with housing "and other conveniences for the accommodation of the public, and the entertainment of strangers and travelers". Notable, perhaps, is that Indiana County was an important location on the Underground Railroad in the 1830s-40s. Collection features the application of one woman (1856) and a petition to "hawk and peddle clocks for the term of one year" (1848). Condition mostly consistent with creases and brittle, chipping edges, otherwise very good.

Rare first edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on first blank page. Sir William Wilson Hunter (1840-1900) was a Scottish administrator of India and historian, who was posted to lower Bengal in 1861. In addition to executing his administrative duties, he travelled widely and read voraciously to collect details of the history and customs of the locality. 'In 1869 Mayo had selected Hunter to organize a statistical survey of India, a task which was to occupy the next twelve years of his life. His first duty was to travel over the whole of India, in order to see things for himself and talk with local officials. These tours, which he often repeated, gave him an unrivalled knowledge of every corner of the subcontinent' (ODNB). This is his history and description of Orissa or Odisha, a state in eastern India on the Bay of Bengal which includes the famous Hindu temple of Jagannath, which gave us the word juggernaut.
