        An Exceptional Archive of Material Documenting the Ordeal of a Conscripted Alabama Unionist, John Henning Woods, Who was Sentenced to Death by a Confederate Court-Martial

      Tennessee, Alabama, and Missouri 1857-1873, 1873. Very good. There are approximately 625 manuscript pages in the two journals, three-volume memoir, and one daily diary that comprise this archive documenting the daily life of John Henning Woods from 1857 through 1865 with a short "post-script" added in 1873. The journal bindings are sound although both covers are missing. The diary is missing its front cover and several leaves. The memoir is in nice shape; one volume is missing a cover, and its end leaves are worn. This is an incredibly detailed, first-person account about a rarely encountered type of Civil War soldier, an ardent Southern Unionist who was imprisoned for mutiny and sentenced to death by firing squad. Woods, the son of a southwestern Missouri homesteader, attended law school at Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee. There he earned a law degree and, in the process, married Mary Emma Caldwell, the daughter of a wealthy Alabama planter, subsequently teaching school not far from the family's plantation near Choccolocco. Woods was an ardent and outspoken Unionist who blamed the South's "treason" upon "Slave-holders hold[ing] the reig ns of power" and refused "to take part with the Slave-holders in this wicked rebellion." He ignored his first draft summons in May of 1862. Eventually, a Confederate officer appeared at his schoolhouse in October and gave him a choice, report to the Conscript Camp at Talladega or be dragged off chains. Reluctantly, Woods reported to Talladega and found a number of other like-minded, unwilling conscripts. Together, they sullenly boarded a steamship bound for the Drill Camp at Mobile, and "as she floated down the Alabama, she proudly played "Dixie's Land," . . . which possessed not charms . . . for we had but little music in our souls." At the Drill Camp, Woods was assigned to the 36th Alabama Infantry. There, he formed a secret Union League of soldiers who "are not interested for the perpetuation of Slavery and do not desire it [and] therefore will not fight with secessionists for it." Instead, they pledged "to work against . . . this unprovoked rebellion." His "Home Circle" became quite large and even attracted one officer, Lieutenant Silas Mosely. With time, camp leadership noticed a significant and "growing discontent among the Soldiers of the 36th, 38th, and 18th Ala Regts" that emanated from a series of parade-ground meetings held by ever-increasing numbers of soldiers. In fact, members of the Circle were planning to secretly report for a review parade with loaded weapons and, upon a signal, "rush forward closing up around the affrighted officers [and] demand their surrender." Before, however, that occurred, Woods and a co-leader of the circle were lured from camp, away from the protection of their colleagues, where they were arrested, "stripped and searched . . . handcuffed and taken to . . . a room where there were a number of other prisoners in irons." While awaiting court-martial as a member of General Braxton Bragg's Corps, Woods was dragged along in captivity through the Tullahoma, Chickamauga, and Chattanooga Campaigns, where he was held at Tullahoma, Wartrace, and Atlanta. There, he experienced and described the horror of Confederate prisons. His trial is described in full including the "surprise testimony" by Lieutenant Mosely, actually a loyal Confederate officer who had only posed as a Unionist to spy upon the conscripts at Mobile. The tension created by the interminable wait for his execution to be carried out is palpable in Woods' writing as is his relief at the last minute pardon secured by his father-in-law from Jefferson Davis. Woods' contemporary writings end with his parole to help build the Atlanta defenses in anticipation of General Sherman's attack, however in the introduction to his memoir and the postscript to one of his journals, Woods reports that eventually he escaped from Atlanta, enlisted in the Union Army and served as a clerk until the end of the war, after which he and family moved from Alabama to Mt. Vernon, Missouri where he taught school, established two teaching institutes, served as the county superintendent of education, and eventually opened a book and stationery store. Woods goes to great lengths in his writings to explain why, as a Southerner, he opposed secession and at times becomes rather pedantic and overbearing in doing so. However, the descriptions of Woods' actual travails are captivating. Highlights of the archive include: * Riveting descriptions of his arrest, trial, prison life, and prisoner maltreatment. * A detailed eight-page description of his father-in-law's plantation including the "miscegenistic indulgences with slave feminines which . . . would be too abominable to be allowed by high-minded Society were it not already so common as to be passed slightly or unnoticed." An accomplished drawing of the plantation's main residence, outbuildings, and slave quarters accompany the description. * A detailed seven-page description of the Atlanta Barracks Prison-where he spent much of his captivity-with a similarly excellent drawing of its grounds, buildings, and stockade. This is a truly rare collection of exceptional historic import; detailed accounts of conscripted Southern soldiers who were Union sympathizers and narrowly escaped execution for treason simply don't exist.

        Album of anatomical notes, drawings and plates.

      No place, 11/13 February 1873. - 8vo (11 x 14 cm), ca. 130 leaves (and 11 blanks); some notes excised and the stubs used as support for pasted-in engravings and drawings. Contemp. wallet-style black morocco. A pocket-size album assembled by an artist studying human as well as animal proportions, basing his work on engravings of anatomy and of classical statues and figures. Apart from his manuscript notes on Darwin’s "The expression of the emotions" and on "The proportions of the human figure", the album comprises 25 anatomical pen, ink and wash drawings (12 large and folding illustrations and 13 highly detailed sketches of body parts) as well as 14 pages of printed text and 48 plates from Pauquet’s "Recueil d’anatomie portative a l’usage des artistes" (Paris, ca. 1850; including press-copied duplicates), many of which are heavily annotated and hand-coloured; 12 steel engravings of classical statues; 8 plates on the anatomy of the horse; with 2 further drawings and 1 engraving loosely inserted. - Rebacked, flap restored, endpapers renewed. Bookplate of the Marquesses of Rockingham (later Barons and Earls of Sondes) to front pastedown; dated ownership inscription of George Arthur Watson to bookplate and verso of front flyleaf. The ancient family of Watson had long been Baronets, Earls, and finally Marquesses of Rockingham, but the honours became extinct with the passing of Charles Watson-Wentworth in 1782. George Arthur Watson's connection could not be traced, though he may be the Edinburgh painter George Watson mentioned with an 1873 date by P. J. M. McEwan (Dictionary of Scottish art and architecture, Woodbridge 1994).

        An Analysis of the Fifth Book of Hooker's Ecclesiastical Polity

      London - F C & J Rivington et al., 1873 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. An extremely scarce first edition of Reverend B Kennicott's analysis of Hooker's polity. With errata page to the rear. The analysis is of Hooker's fifth book of Polity, originally published in 1597. Hooker's Lawes of Ecclesiastical Politie is his best-known work. It has been characterized as probably the first great work of theology and philosophy to be written in English. The work is a reply to the general principles of Puritanism. Richard Hooker was an English priest in the Church of England. He was one of the most important English theologians of the sixteenth century and was incredibly influential in his work. This analysis is written by Benjamin Kennicott, an English churchman and Hebrew scholar. Condition: In a full calf binding with gilt stamping to the board edges and spine. Externally, smart with rubbing particularly to the head and tail of spine. Some loss to head of spine due to rubbing. Joints are also subject to some rubbing alongside areas of the rear board. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Usul-i mimari-î Osmanî]. L’Architecture Ottomane. Ouvrage autorisé par Iradé Impérial et publie sous le patronage de Son Excellence Edhem Pacha, Ministre des Travaux Publics, Président de la Commision Imperiale Ottomane pour L'Exposition Universelle de 1873, à Vienne. / Die Ottomanische Baukunst [.].

      Constantinople, Imprimerie et Lithographie Centrales / Pascal Sebah, 1873. - Folio (390 x 518 mm). VII, (1), 81, (4), 82-86, (2) pp.; 58 pp. With 190 lithographed plates (14 in colour). Modern full black morocco gilt, spine in six compartments gilt, remains of original wrapper cover title inset within lower cover. First and only edition of "the earliest comprehensive study on the history and theory of Ottoman architecture" (Ersoy, p. 117). Only a few copies of this rare work, produced to the most exacting standards of the day, appear to have been printed. It was produced under the patronage of Edhem Pasha, president of the Imperial Ottoman Commission for the Vienna Exhibition of 1873. The text (in German and French, followed by Turkish) consists of a series of monographs. The entire work was "prepared [.] by a diverse group of artists, architects, and bureaucrats who had close professional ties with the palace. The text begins with a lengthy historical overview that embodies a pioneering attempt to define and represent the entire Ottoman architectural past according to the norms of modern historiography [.] The editor of the whole volume, and the author of a substantial portion of the original text, was the amateur historian and artist Victor Marie de Launay, a 'naturalized' Frenchman who held a secretarial position in the Ministry of Trade and Public Works [.] With a keen scholarly interest in architecture, art, and traditional crafts, Marie de Launay, throughout his lengthy bureaucratic career in the imperial capital, was deeply involved in the representation of the Ottoman state in the world expositions [.] The expertly crafted plates that supplement the text of the 'Usul' include plans, elevations, and section of various Ottoman buildings as well as a rich panoply of decorative details and ornamental patterns, all meticulously depicted in accordance with the academic standards of the Beaux-Arts model [.] Accompanying the monochrome illustrations are fourteen chromolithographic plates (printed in the Sébah studies in Istanbul), skillfully drafted with vibrant and sharply delineated colors. In the superior technical quality and graphic precision of its illustrations, the 'Usul' is duly comparable to its highly acclaimed European counterparts, such as Owen Jones's 'The Grammar of Ornament' (London, 1956), Auguste Racinet's 'L'ornement polychrome' (Paris, 1869), or Jules Bourgoin's 'Les arts arabes' (Paris, 1873). Thus, leaving aside the intellectual scope of its text, the 'Usul' must be considered an artistic specimen in and of itself, conceived as a unique showcase of Ottoman technical competence in the art of publishing" (ibid., p. 117-120). The set is not infrequently encountered incomplete: even the Blackmer copy lacked a plate, and that of William Morris (now in the Calouste Gulbenkian Library) lacked three. - Occasional slight brownstaining (not concerning plates), but entirely complete and finely bound to style.

        3 Lettres autographes signées sur papier à en - tête de l'Imprimerie Georges Jacob, Cloître St - Etienne, Orléans [ Adressées à Edouard Dentu, évoquant le travail d'impression d'un ouvrage de Barbey d'Aurevilly, très vraisemblablement l'édition originale des Diaboliques : ] - Première L.A.S. : " Orléans le 27 août 1873. Monsieur, je vous adresse le spécimen pour le volume de M. d'Aurevilly. Il y a énormément de matières : le spécimen est encore neuf sur une justification assez large comme vous le voyez, interligne à deux points, et nous formerons 10 feuilles pleines à 10 feuilles 1/2. Il faudra évidemment un faux titre pour chaque partie. Le caractère sera très bon, très net. Mais la quantité de matière et le nombre limité de feuilles nous forcent à être compact, trop compact pour faire un volume élégant. Il faudrait pouvoir blanchir davantage et s'étendre jusqu'à 19 feuilles au moins. Je ne vous parle pas du corps 10, nous faisons d'emblée 11 feuilles et plus. Je pourrais me mettre en mesure de vous livrer pour paraître dans la première quinzaine d'octobre". - Seconde L.A.S. : "Orléans, le 1 septembre 1873. Monsieur, Je prends la liberté de venir troubler la tranquillité de votre villégiature pour vous mettre un peu au courant de mes travaux. J'ai envoyé à Monsieur Assollant ses 5 et 6e feuilles. La 7e sera prête sous trois jours au plus. [...] Barbey d'Aurevilly est commencé et d'ici 4 jours j'ajouterai trois compositeurs jusqu'à épuisement de la lettre disponible. Cardenio va partir en ballots chez le brocheur. Veuillez être assez bon pour donner des ordres pour l'expédition du papier pour achever Rachel et commencer le nouveau [... avec les commentaires autographes d'Edouard Dentu à la suite, pour son commis Sauvaitre : ] "La lettre ci - jointe vous mettra au courant des travaux chez Jacob. Envoyez - lui sans tarder le papier qu'il demande. Le volume de Barbey fera onze feuilles. [ ... ] Je vous retourne les deux traites acquittées. Envoyez à Emile Gaboriau, hôtel d'Orléans à Royan (Charente - Inférieure) quinze cents francs [... ] Il est en effet préférable de ne faire paraître l'affiche qu'au moment de la mise en vente des Mémoires de Paul de Kock". - Troisième L.A.S. "Orléans le 10 septembre 1873. Monsieur, J'expédie à M. Barbey d'Aurevilly la dernière feuille de son travail, et la troisième sera finie lundi et expédiée le jour même ou mardi au plus tard. Vous ne m'avez pas fixé de nombre ; prendra - t - on empreintes ? Monsieur Assolant ne renvoie pas plus les épreuves que par le passé. Je lui avais écrit directement le conjurant de hâter sa lecture des épreuves. Ainsi que je vous l'ai dit dans ma dernière lettre j'ai expédié Cardenio chez le brocheur et la facture du volume que M. Sauvaistre doit avoir sous les yeux. Je serai à Paris la semaine prochaine vers le 16. Je serai très heureux de vous y rencontrer [ etc... ]"

      1873. 3 L.A.S. totalisant 4 ff. in - 12 rédigés recto - verso,datées des 27 août, 1er septembre et 10 septembre 1873 : détail du texte : Première L.A.S. : " Orléans le 27 août 1873. Monsieur, je vous adresse le spécimen pour le volume de M. d'Aurevilly.

Je serai très heureux de vous y rencontrer [ etc... ]" Provenant du fonds Dentu, ces 3 très intéressantes lettres autographes signées de l'imprimeur orléanais Georges Jacob, évoquent son travail de composition d'un ouvrage de Barbey d'Aurevilly. Il ne peut s'agir que de l'édition originale de l'ouvrage majeur de Barbey, "Les Diaboliques", qui paraîtra en 1874 chez Dentu, imprimé par Georges Jacob en 2200 exemplaires (Vicaire, I, 305). On y évoque aussi que le roman "Cardenio", oeuvre de Gustave Aimard parue chez Dentu en 1874. Quant au roman d'Assolant évoqué par Jacob, s'agit manifestement de "Rachel" publié chez Dentu en 1874. Rare courrier d'imprimeur évoquant le long labeur préparatoire à l'édition d'un des chefs - d'oeuvre de la littérature française. La seconde des 3 lettres est enrichie de 2 pages d'annotations autographes par Edouard Dentu à l'attention de son premier commis Sauvaistre. Français

      - 19 x 7 cm; 13 x 5 cm; 14 x 12 cm, Lose Blatt doppelt gefalzt, Bleistiftzeichnungen verso mit kleinen Klebstoffspuren, sonst guter Zustand. Aus der Bibliothek des Militärhistorikers Prof Dr. Walter Schaufelberger.- Die Bleistiftzeichnungen datiert «1873« und monogr, «ED». Jean Baptiste Édouard Detaille (1848- 1912) französischer Schlachtenmaler. Schon in seiner Jugend war das familiäre Umfeld Detailles von Bezügen zum Militär der napoleonischen Ära geprägt. Sein Großvater diente unter Napoleon Bonaparte, seine Großtante war die Ehefrau des französischen Admirals Pierre de Villeneuve. Mit 17 Jahren trat Detaille in das Atelier Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissoniers ein und stellte 1867 sein erstes Bild, eine Ansicht des Ateliers seines Meisters, aus.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. 800 gr.

        The Stones of Venice.

      London: Smith, Elder and Co.,, 1873. New Edition. 3 volumes, large octavo. Original brown cloth, spines and covers lettered and decorated in gilt and blind, top edges gilt, terracotta-coloured endpapers. Numerous plates by Thomas Lupton, J. C. Armytage, R. P. Cuff and others after Ruskin, illustrations in the text. A few inner joints cracked but sound, the odd tape mark to endpapers, scattered light foxing. A remarkably good set, fresh and bright. Signed limited edition, one of 1,500 copies signed by the author at the end of the preface. Ruskin's magnum opus, one of the key texts of the aesthetic movement, was first published 1851?53. Ruskin's The Stones of Venice and The Seven Lamps of Architecture "with their obsession with the function and aesthetics of architecture, over and beyond its history and practice? proved a revolutionary success" (PMM). "The importance of The Stones of Venice lies ? in its celebration of the Byzantine and the Gothic, which had an immediate effect on Victorian architects, who began to introduce Romanesque forms and Venetian and Veronese colour and sculptural features into their designs" (ODNB). In the most famous chapter, "The nature of Gothic", which was twice reprinted in his lifetime (first for the inauguration of the London Working Men's College in 1854, and second by William Morris in 1892), "Ruskin argued that under conditions of industrialization and the division of labour, social disharmony and industrial unrest were bound to occur, because the previously expressive craftsman - Ruskin's ideal working man - had been reduced to the condition of a machine" (op. cit.) With an appealing provenance, inscribed on the front free endpaper of volume I: "G. Scowcroft Fletcher, University College, London, January 1948". Geoffrey Fletcher (1923-2004) was a British artist and art critic, best known for his book The London Nobody Knows (1962) and a series of similar books popular during the 60s and 70s. His detailed and delicate paintings and drawings of London landscapes (often of unfashionable, neglected, or dilapidated subjects) owe a debt to Ruskin's own penetrating eye.

        THE MERCHANTS AND MANUFACTURERS OF CHICAGO. BEING A COMPLETE HISTORY OF OUR MERCANTILE AND MANUFACTURING INTERESTS, AND THEIR PROGRESS SINCE THE FIRE

      Chicago: J.M. Wing, 1873. [5],9-245pp. plus one leaf of chromolithographic printing ads. Hundreds of woodcuts in text. Large folio. Original gilt pictorial publisher's cloth, neatly rebacked, with original spine laid down. Corners lightly worn, cloth lightly faded and soiled. Several leaves with mild to moderate edge tears. Still a very good copy of a scarce book. A large-scale illustrated production showcasing the rebuilding of Chicago after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Filled with advertisements, the book features large woodcuts - single and double-page - highlighting the premier businesses of the city. Among those featured is the Palmer House; Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co.; Lakeside Publishing; the Grand Pacific Hotel; Coan & Ten Broeke Carriage Manufacturing; the suburbs of Evanston and Hinsdale; McVicker's Theater; and many more. Lists of the illustrations and advertisers are also included. The lavish production is a testament to the resilience and determination of the Windy City to bounce back after disaster and claim its place as the heart of the Midwest. Scarce, with only one copy appearing in auction records for the last forty years, and that substantially incomplete.

        Slave-catching in the Indian Ocean. A record of naval experiences.

      London, Longmans, Green & Co. (colophon: printed by Spottiswoode & Co.), 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.

        The Birds of Great Britain.

      London: Taylor and Francis for the author, [1862]-1873. - 5 volumes. Folio (21 4/8 x 14 4/8 inches). 367 hand-colored lithographs after John Gould, Josef Wolf, and H.C. Richter (4 plates at end of volume IV with some spotting). Contemporary green morocco gilt, all edges gilt, by Bickers and Son. Provenance: 19th-century engraved bookplate of the Barons Egerton of Tatton on the front paste-down of each volume; 20th-century bookplate of C.J. Coldeway on the front paste-down of each volume. "The most popular of all his works is always likely to be Birds of Great Britain" ("Fine Bird Books") First edition. Often referred to as the most sumptuous and costly of all British bird books, the plates depict scenes with more sophisticated subjects than Gould's previous works, including nests, chicks and eggs: "I also felt that there was an opportunity of greatly enriching the work by giving figures of the young of many of the species of various genera - a thing hitherto almost entirely neglected by author's, and I feel assured that this infantile age of birdlife will be of much interest for science." (Gould "Preface" to "Introduction", 1873). Initially employed as a taxidermist [he was known as the 'bird-stuffer'] by the Zoological Society, Gould's fascination with birds began in the "late 1820s [when] a collection of birds from the Himalayan mountains arrived at the Society's museum and Gould conceived the idea of publishing a volume of imperial folio sized hand-coloured lithographs of the eighty species, with figures of a hundred birds (A Century of Birds Hitherto Unfigured from the Himalaya Mountains, 1830-32). Gould's friend and mentor N. A. Vigors supplied the text. Elizabeth Gould made the drawings and transferred them to the large lithographic stones. Having failed to find a publisher, Gould undertook to publish the work himself; it appeared in twenty monthly parts, four plates to a part, and was completed ahead of schedule. "With this volume Gould initiated a format of publishing that he was to continue for the next fifty years, although for future works he was to write his own text. Eventually fifty imperial folio volumes were published on the birds of the world, except Africa, and on the mammals of Australia-he always had a number of works in progress at the same time. Several smaller volumes, the majority not illustrated, were published, and he also presented more than 300 scientific papers. "His hand-coloured lithographic plates, more than 3300 in total, are called 'Gould plates'. Although he did not paint the final illustrations, this description is largely correct: he was the collector (especially in Australia) or purchaser of the specimens, the taxonomist, the publisher, the agent, and the distributor of the parts or volumes. He never claimed he was the artist for these plates, but repeatedly wrote of the 'rough sketches' he made from which, with reference to the specimens, his artists painted the finished drawings. The design and natural arrangement of the birds on the plates was due to the genius of John Gould, and a Gould plate has a distinctive beauty and quality. His wife was his first artist. She was followed by Edward Lear, Henry Constantine Richter, William Matthew Hart, and Joseph Wolf" (Gordon C. Sauer for DNB). Anker p. 60; "Fine Bird Books"; Nissen 372; Sauer 23; Tree "The Ruling Passion of John Gould", p. 207; Wood p. 365; Zimmer p. 261. Catalogued by Kate Hunter [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A collection of 7 autograph letters from the famed baritone (and later tenor) to the noted tenor Leo Slezak (1873-1946)

      - - August 6, 19082 pp. Oblong octavo. In black ink. On a card with the address "53 Rue de la Faisanderie" embossed at head. With autograph envelope postmarked Deauville, [August] 7l [1908] and Kramsach-Ache[n]rain [?]August, [19]08. In French (with translation). De Reszke has sent two scores to Slezak, in which he has marked the breaks "according to the traditions of the [?Paris] Opera." He (rightly) predicts that his pupil and successor will have a great international career. "I think a lot about your beautiful voice and your very artistic temperament - and I am certain that you will have a great success in your international career." Printed address crossed out and replaced with "Deauville - Villa Eole" in de Reszke's autograph.- April 4, 19092 pp. Oblong octavo. In black ink. On a card with "53 Rue de la Faisanderie" embossed at head. With autograph envelope postmarked [?]Paris, April 5, [19]09 and Vienna, April 7, [19]09. In Italian (with translation). De Reszke congratulations Slezak on his much deserved triumphs. He will write administrator Henry Higgins (1855-1928) in order to secure the role of Otello for Slezak in an upcoming production at Covent Garden. He also mentions Marcella Sembrich (1858-1935), a noted Polish soprano, and the composer Baron Frédéric d'Erlanger (1868-1943). "You can't imagine how happy and proud I am of your triumphs. all that has come [in your career] you merit by the sacrifice you have imposed upon yourself, and the true and hard work that you undertook with so much courage. Sembrich was also very kind to me. I will write immediately to Higgins for the debut in Otello. I'm afraid that d'Erlanger would like you to sing his opera first, but I will explain to Higgins that this would be a mistake on the Direction's part." - February 5, 19112 pp. Oblong octavo. In black ink. On card with "53 Rue de la Faisanderie" embossed at head. In Italian (with translation). De Reszke worries about Slezak's relationship with certain members of the Metropolitan Opera Company, including general manager, Giulio Gatti-Casazza (1869-1940), and star tenor Enrico Caruso (1873-1921). De Reszke notes the successes of some of his other students, including the American soprano, Lucille Marcel (1877-1921), whom he notes "is always with W." Marcel had just married the Viennese conductor Felix Weingartner (1863-1942) in 1910, and it is to him that De Reszke probably refers here. "You are always in my thoughts and I was often telling myself 'who knows if [Giulio] Gatti-Casazza and this whole Italian group will try to harm you?' I see that I was not wrong. I didn't believe that Caruso could scheme at this point. I hope that you will not cause too much bad blood for yourself because it's not worth the pain and [your] health and the first thing. [Lucille] Marcel is always with W. She sang [.?] in Rome with sensational public success."- April 4, 19112 pp. Oblong octavo. In black ink. On card with "53 Rue de la Faisanderie" embossed at head. In Italian (with translation). De Reszke looks forward to seeing Slezak again after the latter's season has ended. He then passes judgment on two of the most prominent tenors of the day, his student Johannes Sembach (1881-1944) and Enrico Caruso (1873-1921). "It seems that Caruso has been very ill in the throat and remained for some weeks without singing; it was a punishment for the intrigues. Now I have the tenor [Johannes] Sembach from Dresden, whom the direction sent me for a year; his voice is good, pleasant, be he had no idea how to place the high notes, [and] for that reason he forced in a terrible way." According to the April 10, 1911 issue of Opera News, laryngitis and an "attack of the grip" forced Caruso to cancel engagements at the Metropolitan Opera and in Rome. - [?]June 29, 1911 1 page. On a postal card. Postmarked Deauville Calvados. In black ink. With photograph of the villa "Mon Rêve" in Bénerville to verso. In Italian (with translation).

        Around the World in Eighty Days.

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, & Searle,, 1873. Translated by Geo. M. Towle. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine and front cover blocked in black and gold, bevelled boards, buff endpapers, gilt edges. Frontispiece and 54 plates. 48pp publisher's catalogue at end, dated October 1873. Contemporary gift inscription from the British antiquary and poet Thomas Francis Dillon Croker FSA FRGS (1831?1912), "With affectionate regards from T. F. Dillon Croker to Josephine Emily Bolton, Christmas 1873" on the front free endpaper verso. Spine slightly darkened, extremities rubbed, two short nicks at head of spine, a little scattered foxing, but an excellent copy. First UK and first illustrated edition in English, rare with the title page dated 1873. This Sampson Low edition was published in November 1873, but the overwhelming majority of copies have the title dated 1874, in line with usual contemporary practise for books published for the Christmas market. The binding was issued in a number of variant colours: blue, green, red, and purple. The novel was first published in French in 1873 as Le Tour du monde en quatre-vingt jour, from which James R. Osgood of Boston published an unillustrated translation in July 1873, under the title The Tour of the World in Eighty Days. The translator George Makepeace Towle (1841?1893) was an American lawyer and politician. "In an unusual twist, this American translation crossed the Atlantic for use by Sampson Low in England" (Taves and Michaluk).
