        Kapital. Kritika politicheskoj ekonomii. Perevod c nmetskago. Tom pervoej. Kniga I. Protschess proizvodstva Kapitala. (Russian, = The Capital. Critique of the Political Economy. Translated from German. Volume One. Book I [all].).

      S.-Peterburg, N.I. Poliakov, 1872. Large 8vo. Nice contemporary Russian half calf binding with gilt title to spine. Minor wear to capitals and corners. Inner hinge a little weak. Old Russian library markings to back pasted-down end-paper. An unusally nice copy. (2), XIII, (3), 678 pp.. First Russian edition (first issue, with the issue-pointers), being the first translation into any language, of Marx' immensely influential main work, probably the greatest revolutionary work of the nineteenth century.Marx' groundbreaking "Das Kapital" originally appeared in German in 1867, and only the first part of the work appeared in Marx' lifetime. The very first foreign translation of the work was that into Russian, which, considering Russian censorship at the time, would seem a very unlikely event. But as it happened, "Das Kapital" actually came to enjoy greater renown in Russia than in any other country; for many varying reasons, it won a warm reception in many political quarters in Russia, and it enjoyed a totally unexpected rapid and widespread success. The first Russian translation of "Das Kapital" came to have a profound influence the economic development of of Russia. It was frequently quoted in the most important economic and political discussions on how to industrialize Russia and the essential points of the work were seen by many as the essential questions for an industrializing Russia. " "Das Kapital" arrived in Russia just at the moment that the Russian economy was recovering from the slump that followed Emancipation and was beginning to assume capitalist characteristics. Industrialization raised in the minds of the intelligentsia the question of their country's economic destiny. And it was precisely this concern that drew Mikhailovsky and many of the "intelligenty" to "Das Kapital"." (Resis, p. 232).The story of how the first printing of the first translation of "Das Kapital" came about, is quite unexpected. As the "triumph of Marxism in backward Russia is commonly regarded as a historical anomaly" (Resis, p. 221), so is the triumph of the first Russian edition of "Das Kapital". The main credit for the coming to be of the translation of "Das Kapital" must be given to Nicolai Danielson, later a highly important economist in his own right. The idea came from a circle of revolutionary youths in St. Petersburg, including N.F. Danielson, G.A. Lopatin, M.F. Negreskul, and N.N. Liubavin, all four of whom participated in the project. Danielson had read the work shortly after its publication and it had made such an impact on him that he decided to make it available to the Russian reading public. He persuaded N.I. Poliakov to run the risk of publishing it. "Poliakov, the publisher, specialized in publishing authors, Russian and foreign, considered dangerous by the authorities. Poliakov also frequently subsidized revolutionaries by commissioning them to do translations for his publishing house. Diffusion of advanced ideas rather than profit was no doubt his primary motive in publishing the book." (Resis, p. 222). Owing to Danielson's initiative, Poliakov engaged first Bakunin, and then Lopatin to do the translation. Danielson himself finished the translation and saw the work through press. It was undeniably his leadership that brought Marx to the Russian reading public. In fact, with the first Russian edition of "Das Kapital", Danielson was responsible for the first public success of the revolutionizing work. "Few scholars today would deny that "Das Kapital" has had an enormous effect on history in the past hundred years. Nonetheless, when the book was published in Hamburg on September 5, 1867, it made scarcely a stir, except among German revolutionaries. Marx complained that his work was greeted by "a conspiracy of silence" on the part of "a pack of liberals and vulgar economists." However desperately he contrived to provoke established economists to take up "Das Kapital"'s challenge to their work, his efforts came to nought. But in October 1868 Marx received good news from an unexpected source. From Nikolai Frantsevich Danielson, a young economist employed by the St. Petersburg Mutual Credit Society, came a letter informing Marx that N. P. Poliakov, a publisher of that city, desired to publish a Russian translation of the first volume of "Das Kapital"; moreover, he also wanted to publish the forthcoming second volume. Danielson, the publisher's representative, requested that Marx send him the proofs of volume 2 as they came off the press so that Poliakov could publish both volumes simultaneously. Marx replied immediately. The publication of a Russian edition of volume 1, he wrote, should not be held up, because the completion of volume 2 might be delayed by some six months [in fact, it did not appear in Marx' life-time and was only published ab. 17 years later, in 1885]; and in any case volume 1 represented an independent whole. Danielson proceeded at once to set the project in motion. Nearly four years passed, however, before a Russian translation appeared. Indeed, a year passed before the translation was even begun, and four translators tried their hand at it before Danielson was able to send the manuscript to the printers in late December 1871." (Resis, pp. 221-22). This explains how the book came to be translated, but how did this main work of revolutionary thought escape the rigid Russian censors? "By an odd quirk of history the first foreign translation of "Das Kapital" to appear was the Russian, which Petersburgers found in their bookshops early in April 1872. Giving his imprimatur, the censor, one Skuratov, had written "few people in Russia will read it, and still fewer will understand it." He was wrong: the edition of three thousand sold out quickly; and in 1880 Marx was writing to his friend F.A. Sorge that "our success is still greater in Russia, where "Kapital" is read and appreciated more than anywhere else." (PMM 359, p.218). Astonishingly, Within six weeks of the publication date, nine hundred copies of the edition of three thousand had already been sold."Under the new laws on the press, "Das Kapital" could have been proscribed on any number of grounds. The Temporary Rules held, for example, that censorship must not permit publication of works that "expound the harmful doctrines of socialism or communism" or works that "rouse enmity and hatred of one class for another." The Board of Censors of Foreign Publications was specifically instructed to prohibit importation of works contrary to the tenets of the Orthodox Church or works that led to atheism, materialism, or disrespect for Scriptures. Nor did the recent fate of the works of Marx and Engels at the hands of the censors offer much hope that "Das Kapital" would pass censorship. As recently as August 11, the censors of foreign works had decided to ban importation of Engels' "Die Lage der arbeitenden Klassen in England", and, according to Lopatin, the censors reprimanded Poliakov for daring to run announcements on book jackets of the forthcoming publication of "Das Kapital". By 1872 the censors had prohibited the importation and circulation of all works by Marx and Engels except one - "Das Kapital". The book, as we shall see, had already won some recognition in Russia shortly after its publication in Germany. Not until 1871, however, did the censors render a judgment on the book, when the Central Committee of Censors of Foreign Publications, on the recommendation of its reader, permitted importation and circulation of the book both in the original language and in translation. The official reader had described the book as "a difficult, inaccessible, strictly scientific work," implying that it could scarcely pose a danger to the state. [...] The length and complexity of the book prompted the office to divide the task of scrutinizing it between two readers, D. Skuratov, who read the first half of the book, and A. De-Roberti, who read the last half. Skuratov dutifully listed objectionable socialist and antireligious passages, taking special note of Marx's harsh attack on the land reforms General Kiselev had instituted in the Danubian Principalities. But in his report Skuratov dismissed these attacks as harmless, since they were imbedded in a "colossal mass of abstruse, somewhat obscure politico-economic argumentation." Indeed, he regarded the work as its own best antidote to sedition. "It can be confidently stated," he wrote, "that in Russia few will read it and even fewer will understand it." Second, he said, the book could do little harm. Since the book attacked a system rather than individual persons, Skuratov implied that the book would not incite acts threatening the safety of the royal family and government officials. Third, he believed that the argument of the book did not apply to Russia. Marx attacked the unbridled competition practiced in the British factory system, and such attacks, Skuratov asserted, could find no target in Russia because the tsarist regime did not pursue a policy of laissez faire. Indeed, at that very moment, Skuratov stated, a special commission had drafted a plan that "as zealously protects the workers' well-being from abuses on the part of the employers as it protects the employers' interests against lack of discipline and nonfulfillment of obligations on the part of the workers." Repeating most of Skuratov's views, De-Roberti also noted that the book contained a good account of the impact of the factory system and the system of unpaid labor time that prevailed in the West. In spite of the obvious socialist tendency of the book, he concluded, a court case could scarcely be made against it, because the censors of foreign works had already agreed to permit importation and circulation of the German edition. With the last barrier removed, on March 27, 1872, the Russian translation of "Das Kapital" went on sale in the Russian Empire. The publisher, translators, and advocates of the book had persevered in the project for nearly four years until they were finally able to bring the book to the Russian reading public." (Resis, pp. 220-22). The Russian authorities quickly realized, however, that Skuratov's statement could not have been more wrong, and the planned second edition of the Russian translation was forbidden; thus it came to be published in New York, in 1890. That second edition is nearly identical to the first, which can be distinguished by the misplaced comma opposite "p. 73" in the table of contents (replaced by a full stop in the 2nd ed.) and the "e" at the end of l. 40 on p. 65 (replaced by a "c" in the 2nd ed.). A third edition, translated from the fourth German edition, appeared in 1898. Volumes 2 and 3 of "Das Kapital" appeared in Russian translation, also by Danielson, in 1885 and 1896.See: Albert Resis, Das Kapital Comes to Russia, in: Slavic Review, Vol. 29, No. 2 (Jun., 1970), pp. 219-237

        Lettera autografa firmata a ''Caro Enrico'' (probabilmente Mayer)

      (Londra), 26 aprile (s.d. ma 1861-1872), 18 Fulham Road, - Biglietto (mm 110x90) scritto in minuta grafia firmato amichevolmente ''Gius.'' in cui prega probabilmente Enrico Mayer (pedagogista e scrittore italiano, di origine franco-tedesca) di voler anticipare 400 fr. A Pellegrino Rosselli: ''.dirò a Giannetta che cosa devono farne. E a voi li darò mercoledì o prima se prima vi vedo'' . Janet Nathan Rosselli (1842-1911).è ricordata come la "gentile infermiera" di Giuseppe Mazzini che lo accolse malato, sotto il falso nome di John Brown, nella sua casa livornese e dove il celebre pensatore italiano morì nel 1872. Janet si fece interprete con il marito Pellegrino Rosselli degli ideali mazziniani del Risorgimento italiano. La lettera è quindi probabilmente da datare agli ultimi anni di vita di Mazzini: il matrimonio di Giannetta risale al 1861 e l'ultima visita di Mazzini a Londra è del febbraio del 1871, dunque la missiva è collocabile in questo arco cronologico.

        Playbill / Carte-de-Visite.

      This legendary Western figure was a Virginian who moved to Texas and became a cowboy before joining General J.E.B. Stuart's Confederate forces to serve as a scout; after the war he turned to buffalo scouting and hunting, befriending "Buffalo Bill" Cody and gaining fame in Indian skirmishes and leading buffalo hunts with royalty and celebrities; in 1872 he and Cody performed in the melodrama "The Scouts of the Prairies" in Chicago, in which role he became the first actor to perform cowboy-style rope tricks on the stage; he married Italian-American dancer Giuseppina Morlacchi (1846-86) the following year and continued to hunt the Great Plans and act in Wild West plays on the east coast until his death at age 33. Printed playbill, 3½" X 9½", De Bar's Grand Opera House [St. Louis, MO], n.y. May 11 [likely 1877]. Near fine. In 1877 Omohundro began his own acting company, which premiered in St. Louis. This rare playbill, tall and narrow, announces a Saturday matinee appearance of "The Real / TEXAS JACK! / (J.B. Omohundro)" in varying typefaces, as well as "The Great Chief and Scout / Donald McKay / and His / Warm Spring Indians!" and even Omohundro's own spouse "The Peerless / MORLACCHI, / Miss Maude Oswald, / And a full Dramatic Company, in the great Border Drama / TEXAS JACK / IN THE / BLACK HILLS! / Friday Evening, May 11, Benefit of / TEXAS JACK / Prior to his departure for the Plans." Miniscule typeface at bottom note the printer of this playbill as Globe-Democrat Job Print. Printed on thin yellow stock, this scarce survivor shows only the most minimal faint wear and no edge tears whatsoever. Accompanied by a carte-de-visite, 3 3/4" X 5½", n.p., n.y. Near fine. Sepia-tone head-and-shoulders portrait of an idealized artist's rendering of Texas Jack in Western garb and cowboy hat, captioned "Texas Jack / J.B. Omohundro" beneath. Verso blank. Noted Western artist H.O. Rawson created this portrait and other Western figures from the turn-of-the-century through the 1930s, publishing them and selling them himself -- which dates this likeness to early 20th century. An outstanding and rare printed playbill produced during Texas Jack's brief lifetime and an uncommon century old portrait.

        The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals.

      London: John Murray,, 1872. With photographic and other illustrations. Octavo. Original dark green cloth neatly refurbished (with head and tail of spine and inner joints strengthened) gilt lettered spine, black coated endpapers. 7 heliotype plates (3 folding); woodcut illustrations to the text (many full page). Contemporary bookplate of Edmund Arthur Smith. Scattered foxing, some marginal pencil markings and light creasing, but a good copy, with the 4-pages of publisher's terminal advertisements (dated November 1872). First edition, second issue with the misprint "htat" on the first line of p. 208, and the plates numbered in arabic rather than roman ("it seems probable that the arabic set was the earlier", Freeman). Expression of the Emotions completed Darwin's great cycle of evolutionary writings, "written, in part at least, as a confutation of the idea that the facial muscles of expression in man were a special endowment" (Freeman), a subject originally intended for the Descent of Man. Darwin invited the photographer Oscar Rejlander to make comparative studies of laughter and crying, obtained photographs of lunatics from asylum director James Crichton-Browne and consulted the French physiologist Guillaume Duchenne regarding his electrical research on the facial muscles. The plates are among the earliest commercially reproduced photographs in a printed book.

        History and General Description of New France. Translated, with Notes, by John Gilmary Shea.

      New York. John Gilmary Shea. 1866-1872. - 4to., 28cm, in 6 volumes, The First Edition in English, limited to 250 sets, with 18 maps, 15 plates & 4 facsimiles, rubricated title pages, in the original half dark brown morocco, blind decorated raised bands, gilt titles, marbled boards and endpapers, blind ruled borders on the boards, internal perforation & blind library stamps, some wear stops on the centre on the boards and some slight wear on the board edges, institutional bookplates on the front paste down endpaper, otherwise a very good to fine sound clean set. (cgc) T.P.L. 189 Howes C-307. Sabin 12135. Field 282. Originally published in French in 1744 in three 4to volumes and later the same year reprinted in six 12mo volumes."The principal work of this great Jesuit traveller and historian and the pre-eminent authority on the French period of the west." Howes. "This work is one of the best authorities concerning various Indian tribes, some of which no longer exist." Lande. Charlevoix's account has a number of advantages - he was familiar with the land and had a feel for the story he was trying to tell; he was able to gather oral testimony which leavened the dry recitation of facts and figures; and he had access to the official archives of France. Includes important material relating to the French in the Mississippi Valley. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Galla-Vorstellung dargestellt von Bellachini. Zum ersten Male Verwandlungs-Scene: Aus einem Ei eine lebende Person frei auf der Bühne erscheinen zu lassen. - Ganz neue und hier noch nicht gezeigte Stehn`sche Wandelbilder.

      München, 17. März (1872).. Plakat mit typograph. Text und Zaubererszene in Holzschnitt. Blattgr.: 85 x 62 cm. Samuel Bellachini (eigentlich Samuel Berlach; 1828-1885) zählte zu den populärsten und bekanntesten Zauberkünstlern des 19. Jahrhunderts in Deutschland. Auf dem Plakat bewirbt er sich als "Hofkünstler Sr. Majestät des Königs von Preußen", was das Resultat eines netten Streichs war: "Bellachini hatte Audienz im Kaiserlichen Palais, erheiterte den Monarchen durch einige gelungene Escamotagen und bat ihn schliesslich mit einer Feder die Worte zu schreiben: `Bellachini versteht nichts.` Der Kaiser versuchte, aber die Feder versagte den Dienst. Darauf bat Bellachini die Worte aufzuschreiben: `Bellachini ist Hofkünstler des Deutschen Kaisers`. Sofort parirte die Feder und der Monarch sagte lächelnd: `Ein Deutscher Kaiser pflegt sein Wort zu halten und um so mehr, was er geschrieben hat.`" (Saltarino, Artisten-Lexikon, p. 20).- Kleiner Einriss in einer Faltung, sonst sehr gutes Exemplar.

      Cuba, 1872. Folio. Single sheets. Minor worming, offsetting. Very good. A group of interesting documents, all bearing official stamps, documenting the sale or liberation of various slaves from 1842-72. The slaves are described by name, age, and as either "negro," "mulato," or "criolla." Though Cuba ended its participation in the slave trade in 1867, it was not until 1886 that slavery was finally abolished by royal decree. An interesting collection showing the persistent nature of Cuban slave culture in the latter half of the 19th century.

      Franz Kluge, Reval 1872 - German natural philosopher Baron Nikolai von Dellingshausen (1827-1896) was the first to propose a wave theory of matter, 50 years before Louis de Broglie.

His ideas were influenced by two contemporary theories, the kinetic theory of heat (heat as motion) and the wave theory of light (light transmitted through vibrations in the ether). ix, 405 pp. 8vo.

This landmark and complete series of essays is still being used and referred to today by teachers and craftsmen and women. This also in many ways contains the seeds and beginnings of the burst of individual craftsmen who brought in the Aesthetic movement and the Arts & Crafts design that abounded in the late 19th century. A work of significant importance for all who work with their hands.

        Walt Whitman's Books (promotional poster)

      Washington, D.C., 1872. Spectacular oversized advertising poster designed by Walt Whitman for distribution to booksellers, an artifact reflecting both his printing background and his promotional energy. The primary headlines read: "Walt Whitman's / BOOKS / LEAVES OF GRASS / DEMOCRATIC VISTAS / AFTER ALL NOT TO CREATE ONLY / AS A STRONG BIRD ON PINIONS FREE / ALSO, JOHN BURROUGHS' 'NOTES ON WALT WHITMAN AS POET AND PERSON.'" Detailed descriptions and prices are given in smaller type for each book. Whitman was a tireless promoter of his work and image: "despite his seeming self-confidence (colossal egoism, some have said) and his unlimited faith in a democratic society in which all are equal, Whitman engaged in a lifelong manipulation of the public and posterity through an unrelenting publicity campaign. . . . He left nothing to chance" (E.H. Miller). The final book advertised on the poster, Notes on Walt Whitman as Poet and Person by John Burroughs, was effectively ghostwritten by Whitman. This example was one of the cache of "perfect" unused posters discovered in 1954, and distributed to libraries by legendary Whitman collector Charles Feinberg, as described by William White in "A Walt Whitman Poster" (The American Book Collector, X:3, November 1959). OCLC locates sixteen institutional copies of the poster, at least two of which, Texas and Virginia, were also gifts of Feinberg. A fine copy of an unlikely survival. Promotional poster, measuring 29.5 by 24 inches, bordered in black and printed in various metal and wooden types, headed by Walt Whitman's oversized "signature." Lightest toning to edges.

        The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals.

      London: John Murray,, 1872. With photographic and other illustrations. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, titles to spine gilt, simple blind panels to covers, fore edge untrimmed, black coated endpapers. Housed in a custom cloth-lined slipcase. 7 heliotype plates, 3 folding; woodcut illustrations to the letterpress, many full page. Spine gently rolled with very light rubbing to extremities and a minute nick to headcap, tips lightly bumped, front cover with a couple of pale markings and a short (10 mm) split to cloth along blind rule at upper outer corner, internally a little foxing to versos of plates with images unaffected, the very occasional small spot to margins. An excellent copy with an unfaded spine, a nice example of the original cloth. First edition, second issue as usual with the misprint "htat" on the first line of p. 208, the plates in early state, numbered in arabic rather than roman. Expression of the Emotions completed Darwin's great cycle of evolutionary writings, "written, in part at least, as a confutation of the idea that the facial muscles of expression in man were a special endowment" (Freeman), a subject originally intended for the Descent of Man. Darwin invited the photographer Oscar Rejlander to make comparative studies of laughter and crying, obtained photographs of lunatics from asylum director James Crichton-Browne and consulted the French physiologist Guillaume Duchenne regarding his electrical research on the facial muscles. The plates are among the earliest commercially reproduced photographs in a printed book.
