        TWENTY THOUSAND LEAGUES UNDER THE SEAS;

      1873. [a handsome copy] or, The Marvellous and Exciting Adventures of Pierre Aronnax... Translated from the French. One Hundred and Ten Illustrations. (Edition of James R. Osgood & Co.) Sold Only by Subscription. Boston: Geo. M. Smith & Co., 1873. Original green cloth decorated in gilt and black. First American Edition, second and usual "Smith" issue, of Verne's famous tale of Captain Nemo and the submarine Nautilus. Considerable confusion surrounds the relationship of the two Boston 1873 title pages that can appear in this title -- the James R. Osgood & Company title page, and this usual Geo. M. Smith & Co. one (which refers to the Osgood one and indicates "sold by subscription only"). The bindings of the two are nearly identical (the Osgood binding reads "...UNDER THE SEA" and bears a jellyfish in the center of the front cover, whereas the Smith binding properly reads "...UNDER THE SEAS" and has Captain Nemo using a sextant on the front cover). Clearly the Osgood one is a bit earlier and is much scarcer: supposedly only about fifteen copies were known to exist, but we have handled more than a dozen of them over the past 20 years (all between $12,000 and $27,500), so our guess would be more like fifty. One theory is that the Osgood title page may have designated the subscription issue, and that the Smith one, being much less scarce, must have designated the subsequent trade issue. Another possibility is that most of the Osgood edition was consumed by a Boston fire.~This copy is a standard copy without gilt page edges (a deluxe feature for which the original buyer paid extra). On the final page of text, there is no "THE END" (some copies have it, some have it partially, and some do not have it at all; this is not an "issue point" as is sometimes claimed, but merely a case of type slippage during a single print run, with no bearing upon which copies were actually first to reach the public).~As for condition, this is a bright, nearly fine copy (a few tiny nicks in the spine ends); remarkably, the original dark brown endpapers of this hefty volume are still entirely intact..

Plats ornés d'un semis de lions des Flandres dans un triple encadrement de filets dorés et roulettes, double filet doré sur les coupes; large dentelle avec roulette en encadrement intérieur. Contreplats et gardes habillés de soie bleue, tranches dorées. (E. Bosquet). Ex libris Dumont de Roubaix. Envoi autographe de l'auteur. Très bel exemplaire somptueusement relié. Extrait du tome XI des Mémoires de l'Académie royale des sciences, des lettres et des beaux-arts de Belgique. Les Bandes d'odonnance, dont la formation remonte au XVe siècle, sont des unités militiares d'élite qui forment le noyau de l'armée permanente habsbourgeoise aux Pays-Bas. La plupart des bandes d'ordonnance comptent cinquante cavaliers lours et cent archers. (Pirenne 1775). Bandes d'ordonnance (French) or Benden van ordonnantie (Dutch) were elite heavy cavalry formations recruited from the aristocracy in the early-modern Low Countries. They were originally formed by Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, and became an integral part of the military organization of the Low Countries from the mid-fifteenth to late-sixteenth centuries, up to the first years of the Eighty Years' War. They continued to exist into the seventeenth century with far less military importance, although a command in a Bande d'ordonnance was still a considerable social distinction.

        Contos e lendas.

      Lisbon, Mattos Moreira e Compª, 1873. - 8°, contemporary quarter calf, author title gilt. Some browning, scattered light soiling. Inscribed presentation copy to D. Luiz da Camera Leme, by the author. Lithographic frontispiece, 185 pp. *** FIRST EDITION of these stories by one of Portugal's best historical novelists. Rebello da Silva was a protégé of Herculano, and Herculano's best and most immediate successor; Herculano himself bragged that his disciple's work rivaled Sir Walter Scott's. Rebello da Silva also showed considerable skill as a historian and an excellent prose style in such works as the unfinished @Historia de Portugal nos séculos XVII e XVIII (5 volumes, 1860-1871), which remains a useful work. He was responsible for beginning to collect the documents on Portugal's relations with the Vatican that comprise the massive @Corpo diplomatico portuguez (1862- ), and he completed the Visconde de Santarem's @Quadro elementar das relações políticas e diplomáticas de Portugal, which set out the Portuguese role in exploring the west coast of Africa. Rebello da Silva (1822-1871), who was born in Lisbon and died there, was also a journalist, a brilliant political orator, a professor of political economy and a dramatist. The frontispiece portrait of the author is by Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro (1846-1905), one of the best Portuguese caricaturists. *** Not in Innocêncio; cf. V, 228 and XIII, 350 for other works by this author. Cf. Bell, @Portuguese Literature p. 296 and Saraiva & Lopes, @História da literatura portuguesa (1976) pp. 825-6. NUC: IU, CaBVaU, CU, WU, MH.

Schon im nächsten Jahr vollendete er mit Die Rast der Trommler sein erstes Bild aus dem militärischen Genre. Die Motive für seine Bilder entsprachen Detailles Vorliebe für Soldaten und Pferde. Erfolge feierte er aber ebenso mit seinen lebendig gezeichneten Kostümbildern aus der Revolutionszeit (Eckplatz eines Cafés. Die Incroyables). Als 1870 der Deutsch-Französische Krieg ausbrach (an dem Detaille anfangs teilnahm). war seine Kunst fortan der Verherrlichung der Tapferkeit und des Edelmuts seiner Landsleute gewidmet. und da er die glückliche Wahl der Motive mit einer großen Lebendigkeit der Darstellung zu verbinden wusste. errangen seine Kriegsbilder eine ausgedehnte Popularität. Detaille war auch ein ausgezeichneter Aquarellmaler und veröffentlichte 1885 zusammen mit Jules Richard eine zweibändige illustrierte Geschichte der französischen Armee (L`armée française). Er war Offizier des Ordens der französischen Ehrenlegion und seit 1892 Mitglied der Académie des Beaux-Arts. Versand D: 20,00 EUR Militaria-allgemein Grafik - vor 1900

        "Der wunderbare Ring". Eigenh. Manuskript mit U. O. O. u. D.

      1873. 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. "Kaiser Friedrich Barbarossa hatte zu Kaiserslautern bei seiner Burg einen Teich, in welchem er einen Lieblingsfisch hegte. Damit derselbe ihm nun bei seiner häufigen Abwesenheit, indem er des Reiches waltete und Heldenfahrten machte, nicht vertauscht werde, legte er dem Fische einen künstlich gearbeiteten Ring an, der die Eigenschaft hatte, mit dem Wachsthum des Trägers sich auszudehnen und so stets genau zu passen. Da wuchs der Fisch heran zu einem Riesenleibe, der in seiner Art seines Gleichen nicht hatte, und der Ring saß immer noch bequem und war ihm zugleich ein herrlicher Schmuck geworden. Als Wahrzeichen dieser Sage hat die Stadt Kaiserslautern in der Pfalz den Riesenfisch mit dem Ringe in ihrer prächtigen Fruchthaushalle bildlich dargestellt. Der Fremde sieht's, fragt nach der Bedeutung, und vernimmt die Sage. - Die Kirche Gottes auf Erden wird genannt der Leib Jesu Christi, den die alten Christen mit dem griechischen Namen Ichthys, welches Wort 'Fisch' bedeutet, sinnbildlich bezeichneten, weil sie die einzelnen Buchstaben als Anfangsbuchstaben für ebenso viele Wörter in der griechischen Sprache einen Satz bilden ließen, dessen Sinn war: 'Jesus Christus, Gottes Sohn, Erlöser". Möge es gestattet sein, jene schöne Sage auf die Kirche anzuwenden [...]". - Der streitbare, aller geistlichen und universitären Ämter enthobene und später auch exkommunizierte Theologe war maßgeblich am Aufbau der altkatholischen Kirche beteiligt und wurde 1873 in Köln zum ersten altkatholischen Bischof Deutschlands gewählt.

        Oeuvres de Francois Rabelais

      1873. DORÉ, Gustave. Oeuvres. Texte collationné sur les éditions originales, avec une vie de l'auteur, des notes et un glossaire. By Rabelais. Two volumes in one. [4], xliv, 476; [4], 496 pp. Illustrated with a portrait of Rabelais, 29 full page engraved plates (vol. I); 31 full-page engraved plates (vol. II), plus hundreds of smaller engravings throughout. Together 719 engravings after original designs by Doré. Folio, 475 x 320 mm, bound in near-contemporary French jansenist blue morocco, gilt-lettered spine, bound in are the mint original publisher's binding of gilt-stamped and lettered red cloth. Paris: Garnier Frères, 1873. First Complete Edition, One of 25 copies on Chine. This is the expanded and entirely reworked folio edition of Doré's Rabelais of 1873. The first Doré Rabelais was published in 1854 by J. Bry Aine with 15 full-page engravings and 100 smaller woodcuts. The grand 1873 edition contained a total of 719 illustrations, representing the final expression of the artist for "un des plus beaux livres de Gustave Doré" (Carteret) and "the most successful illustrations of Rabelais ever made" (Brivois). Copies on Chine are of the greatest rarity, and, more importantly, they possess the most brilliant impressions of these highly artistic Doré engravings. Doré's Rabelais was his first important book, and it served to launch the famous series of illustrated classics illustrated by him. For no other publication did Doré create as many illustrations as he did for the Rabelais. As well no other author (or work) captured the artist's imagination sufficiently to induce him to return to the same work and issue an enlarged and expanded version. It is for this most classic of French novels, Gargantua et Pantagruel, that Doré created a contained universe of visual Rabelaisan imagery which remains unequalled before or since. "On trouve dans ceux-ci une suite incomparable de magnifiques dessins, don't un certain nombre nous vient de l'édition Bry, et une typographie qui ne laisse rein à désirer" (LeBlanc, p. 291). Doré's remarkable engravings for the1873 edition of Rabelais "made a great sensation... [the book] was the talk of Paris, the first real glimpse they had of what Doré's imaginative genius could do with expansive literature... Doré would continue to amaze them for decades, with his ability to make the world of imagination become visual reality" (Dan Malan, Gustave Doré: Adrift in Dreams of Splendor, p. 35). Some insignificant wear to extremities of blue morocco binding, perfect condition of the red cloth original binding that is bound-in, and as new condition of the text and engraved Doré illustrations. Valmy-Basse, Doré 166-7. LeBlanc, Catalogue de L'Oeuvre Complet de Gustave Doré, pp. 290-92.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. und einigen eh. Notenbeispielen. Göttingen, 6. V. 1873.

      1873. 3¾ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. An den Komponisten Johann Peter Gotthard in Wien: "Eine kleine Verlegenheit treibt mich, Sie bittweise anzugehen. Mir ist abseiten der Göttg. Gel. Anzeigen Ihr Verlag 'Sixtin. Capelle v. E. Schelle' zur Recension angetragen - ich habe mich dem gern unterzogen, nachdem ich allgemeine Einsicht genommen. Nun aber fehlt sonderbarer Weise [...] im Texte der zweite Bogen p 17-32 [...] Da mir nun dran gelegen ist baldmöglich den Bericht zu vollenden, so bitte ich Sie hierdurch inständig um rasche, möglich[st] umgehende Sendung jenes Bogens p[er] Kreuzband. Eine andere Bitte wiegt schwerer, worauf ich wo nicht sogleich doch baldige Antwort wünsche. Ich möchte Ihrem geschätzten Verlag mein neuestes (die älteren kennen Sie nicht!-) Opus anbieten [...]". - Eduard Krüger war Gründer eines Gesangvereins, mit dem er vor allem Oratorien Haydns und Händels aufführte, und betätigte sich als Mitarbeiter musikalischer Fachzeitschriften und Musikkritiker. "Seit 1838 war Krüger mit Robert Schumann bekannt, dessen neuromantische Reformideen er in seinen Publikationen unterstützte ('Beiträge für Leben und Wissenschaft der Tonkunst', 1847). Krüger redigierte 1848 vorübergehend die 'Neue Hannoversche Zeitung'. Nach seiner Berufung als akademischer Musikdirektor an die Univ. Göttingen wurde ihm 1861 der Professorentitel verliehen. Mit Max Herold und Ludwig Friedrich Schöberlein gründete Krüger 1876 die kirchenmusikalische Zeitschrift 'Siona'; außerdem gab er die Zeitschrift 'Frisia' heraus. Später widmete sich Krüger der Katalogisierung des musikalischen Bestandes der Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen" (DBE).

        Autograph note on the composer's printed visiting card

      Verdi's mention of a "Messa funebre" could, in fact, refer to his own Messa da Requiem. Verdi's letters do occasionally refer to the "Messa funebre," although the abbreviated "Messa" is more common. In a letter to mezzo-soprano Maria Waldmann, dated October 23, 1873, Verdi writes "Of course I would be delighted that you could take part in the Funeral Mass for the anniversary of Manzoni..." Composed in memory of his friend, the Italian poet and novelist, Alessandro Manzoni, the Messa was first performed on May 22, 1874, the first anniversary of Manzoni's death.. Ca. 55 x 90 mm. In brown ink. In Italian (with translation). Verdi would like additional information about a funeral mass ("Messa funebre"). "If you leave home ask about the funeral mass tomorrow in S. Lorenzo. I don't understand anything, but I would like to know what it's about." One very light and small foxed spot to blank left margin of recto; a few light and small foxed spots to verso.

        Slave-catching in the Indian Ocean. A record of naval experiences. London, Longmans, Green & Co. (colophon: printed by Spottiswoode & Co.), 1873.

      1873. 8vo. VIII, (4), 503, (1) pp. With 8 steel-engraved plates including the frontispiece (the 5 signed ones engraved by Pearson) and a folding map of the Indian Ocean, Red Sea and the Gulf, hand-coloured in outline (lithographed by Edward Weller). Red cloth. First edition (only edition until a 1968 facsimile) of a very detailed and well-illustrated account of a British naval campaign to suppress the East African slave trade in the years 1868 to 1870, published only eight years after the end of the United States' Civil War and the abolition of slavery there. Slavery was not outlawed in the Ottoman Empire (which at the time of publication included Egypt and what is now Iraq) until 1882, and in Iran and most of the Gulf States not until the 20th century. The author, Captain Philip Howard Colomb (1831-99), was Commander of the HMS Dryad from 1868 to 1870 and led the campaign. He operated primarily in and around the Gulf, Oman and Zanzibar and captured seven slave ships during those two years. The illustrations show the Dryad and some of the slave ships, individual and group portraits of slaves encountered during the campaign, and views of ports where slave trading occurred. One of the group portraits was engraved after a photograph made by one of the Dryad's officers and other illustrations after drawings by other officers. The map ("The slave trading waters of the Indian Ocean") shows the Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea, Red Sea and the Gulf, including Madagascar and the other islands. The first chapter relates Colomb's voyage to Aden, where he took command of the Dryad, and the next two chapters provide extensive background information to place the account of the campaign in context. Colomb's account of his own campaign includes chapters on individual regions (Bombay, Muscat and Oman, the Gulf, Madagascar, Zanzibar, etc.) and on various topics (slaves on board ship, the slave market, etc.). Colomb was promoted to Admiral after his retirement from active duty. The book is sometimes mistakenly ascribed to his younger brother, John Charles Ready Colomb. - Bookplate "HW". Spine sunned; insignificant foxing in the folding map, but otherwise in fine condition. Garrick, "Indian Ocean, post-exploration", in: Speake, Literature of travel and exploration (2003), pp. 608-610. WorldCat (4 copies). Zeitschrift für Ethnologie 5 (1873), p. 117.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Cliff House, Greenhithe, 5. X. 1873.

      1873. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An die "Wiener Photographische Gesellschaft", in technischen Fragen und zu seinen ausländischen Patenten: "Gentlemen. You are mistaken about the 'Debardeur', it is not a cabinet but a 12 x 10 size. We printed you all the smaller sized ones but could not do the layer in consequence of the accident to our large Hydraulic press. We have not yet received it back & cannot hope for it before the end of the month. I think it would be awkward for me to have shares in a company so far away & would rather dispose of my patents for Austria - either altogether or for half cash & half an interest in the Company. I enclose you a print from a negative of Luckhardts [...]". - Woodbury entwickelte 1864 die "Woodburytypie" (Photoglyptie), einen photochemischen Prozess, der zwischen ca. 1870 und 1900 vor allem in der qualitativ hochwertigen Buchillustration verbreitet war. Es handelte sich um die einzige kommerziell erfolgreiche Methode, feinste Abstufungen von Fotografien im Druck wiederzugeben. In den Jahren 1864-85 meldete Woodbury in England wie auch im Ausland über 30 Patente an, darunter solche zur Stereoskopie, Ballonphotographie, zu Dias, Filmen, und Projektoren.

Joseph Wolf (1820-99) "was the first bird artist to understand and use the new freedom of style that lithography allowed [...] He introduced natural settings and a feeling of motion into his paintings. Early training in lithography and art [...] opened the door to Wolf's development into one of the first and finest true bird artists. He breathed life into the stiff 'bird on a perch' portrayals so characteristic of bird art of the day. Wolf liked especially to paint birds of prey and game birds, with their subtle browns and grays" (Cornell University Library). Fine Bird Books 102. Nissen IVB 372. Sauer 23. Wood 365. Zimmer 261.
