Wagner, Richard; Forman, Alfred W (trans); Morris, William (his copy)
Privately Printed, 1873. 61pp. William Morris's personal copy of Richard Wagner's Die Walkurie, translated by Alfred W. Forman (the first English-language edition). Privately printed 1873. Presented to William Morris by HARRY BUXTON FORMAN, the translator's brother, ink inscription being on the front free endpaper. Morris wrote to Forman thanking him for the book (Collected Letters of William Morris, Vol 1, No. 216). Condition: Generally Very Good but with dust soiling and shelfwear to covers. **** Henry Buxton Forman (1842-1917) was one-half of the most notorious British book forging partnerships in modern times, with Thomas J. Wise. The relationship between Harry Buxton Forman and William Morris is a fascinating yet convoluted tale. Forman was a career bureaucrat with the Royal Mail, rising from a lowly clerk to being responsible for negotiating international agreements on packet service across international postal borders. He is also described as a failed poet, an obsessive collector of books and bibliographic detail, which he parlayed into a second career as a contributor of literary criticism and editorial incisiveness upon some of the big-name authors of the day such as John Keats and Percey Shelley. His articles for Tinsley's Magazine, entitled "Our Living Poets" brought him to the notice of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and others of the Pre-Raphaelite circle whom he had written about. Forman did have a legitimate working relationship with Morris, as described by biographer John Collins in his book, The Two Forgers (1992): "William Morris was clearly a specialty, as Swineb … [Click Below for Full Description]

DARWIN, Charles
1873. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I can provide a link to many more photos. Just ask! 1873 1st US ed Charles Darwin Expression of the Emotion Evolution Human Behavior "One general law, leading to the advancement of all organic beings, namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die." ― Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species 'Expressions of the Emotions' was Darwin's third great work on his evolutionary theory, and was quite important, even though it was not nearly as popular as the prior two works, 'Origin' and 'Decent'. Darwin explores human behavior and how it relates to genetics, especially that of emotions. He dives deep into emotions such as anxiety, grief, and guilt, and how they impact human growth and evolution. Freeman says of this book, "The Expression of the Emotions is an important member of the evolutionary set, and it was written, in part at least, as a confutation of the idea that the facial muscles of expression in man were a special endowment... [Darwin concluded that] the chief expressive actions exhibited by man and by the lower animals are now innate or inherited." This work is the only work of Charles Darwin's to be illustrated with photographs and was his first to feature heliotype plates. Pictures come from photographer Oscar Rejlander, who decided to feature himself in many of the images. (Freeman 1188). According to Garrison & Morton, "Darwin examined the causes, physiological and psychological, of all the fundamental emotions in man and animals. He concluded that 'the chief expressive actions exhibited by man and by the … [Click Below for Full Description]

PRYOR, Paul
New York, USA: "IT WAS A FEARFUL RISK SHE RAN": THE STORY OF POCAHONTAS, ILLUSTRATED WITH SIX LARGE COLOR LITHOGRAPHS PRYOR, Paul. Pocahontas; or, The Indian Maiden. New York: McLoughlin Bros., circa 1873. Slim quarto, original pictorial paper covers. Early edition (prior to 1886, probably 1873) of this wonderful "American story for little children," illustrated with six full page color lithographs by Justin H. Howard. This scarce children's book is one of the McLoughlin Brothers' "Uncle Sam's Big Picture Series," advertised as a collection of "American stories for little children, written and illustrated with great care, and printed in the best style of color printing" (Publishers' Weekly, 1873). "McLoughlin Brothers was a New York publishing firm that pioneered the systematic use of color printing technologies in children's books, particularly between 1858 and 1920. The firm's publications served to popularize such illustrators as Thomas Nast, William Momberger, Justin H. Howard, Palmer Cox, and Ida Waugh. The artistic and commercial roots of the McLoughlin firm were first developed by John McLoughlin, Jr., who... continually experimented with color illustration-- progressing from hand stenciling, to the mechanical relief process of zinc etching, to the planographic process of chromolithography... During the early years, the product line expanded to include non-book toys including games, blocks, and paper dolls" (Laura Wasowicz). This issue of Pocahontas bears the address 71 Duane St., the premises occupied by McLoughlin Brothers from 1871 to 1886. Publisher's advertiseme … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Ruskin
London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1873. In the original publishers cloth binding, and signed by the author. Number of a limited edition set of 1000. A leading Victorian art critic, as well as a noted watercolourist, Riskin was particularly influential in the second half of the Nineteenth Century and up until the First World War, the aftermath of which saw his reputation dampen somwhat until the publication of numerous academic studieas of his work, where he was recognised as having predicted interest in environmentalism and sustainability. Here, Ruskin's considerable expertise are a the forefront. The first volume argues, in the form of an extended defence of J.M.W. Turner, that painters that were then emerging from the tradition of picturesque were superior at the art of landscape than the old masters. Initially written as a standalone work, subsequent volumes would be written later. The second volume, originally published in 1846, placed emphasis on the symbolism in art, especially regarding nature; the third is of 'many things' in the author's own words; whereas volumes IV and V concentrate on the depiction of mountains and leaves, clouds and relativity respectively. Contains eighty-four illustrative plates and engravings, collated complete. CONDITION In decorative cloth binding with gilt detailing. Externally sound, there is some marking and wear to the boards, as well as wear to the extremities, backstrip and joints. The spines are also somewhat rubbed. Internally, the pages are firmly bound but foxed throughout. The illustrations and text remain clear in each volume. Overa … [Click Below for Full Description]

California Indian Photographica]: Heller, Louis Herman
[Fort Jones, Ca, 1873. Oversized carte de visite photograph, 4 1/4 x 3 inches, on a 5 x 3 1/4-inch mount. Printed advertisement for Watkins Yosemite Art Gallery on verso. Photograph and card with old stains. In good condition. A rare photograph of one of the Modoc Indians captured during the Modoc War of 1873 in northern California. Palmquist and Kailbourn call Louis Heller "the indefatigable photographer of the Modoc War," and this image is one of twenty-four portraits that Heller made of Modoc prisoners. Born in Germany, Heller emigrated to the United States in the mid-1850s, and was an assistant to lithographer Julius Bien in the production of the Bien edition of Audubon's THE BIRDS OF AMERICA. In the early 1860s, Heller went to California and established himself as a photographer in Yreka in 1863. He moved to Fort Jones in 1869 and worked there for the rest of the century. When the Modoc War broke out in 1872, Heller became one of its primary photographic chroniclers, and was in direct competition with Eadweard Muybridge. The main Modoc grievance was over forced resettlement on reservations, and hostilities lasted into 1873. Heller made stereoscopic views of significant sights in the conflict, and produced a series of twenty-four portraits of Modoc protagonists, which he published under his own imprint in May 1873. Muybridge, however, did a better job of marketing his photographs nationally, so Heller turned to Carleton Watkins to market his own photographs. When Heller's images were published in July, 1873 in FRANK LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED NEWSPAPER, they were attr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Used, well read book which has been professionally restored. Has some minor, visible tape marks on cover. Used, vintage 1873 edition of this science fiction classic. The book has just been gently restored by a professional New York restorer. The binding had become loose and a previous owner had put tape around the binding to the front and back covers. The marks from the removed tape can still be seen but the binding is now properly tight. I am an estate liquidator, not a book seller so I can't properly grade this book. There is some fading and foxing within the book but it is completely readable. There is a previous owner's name written inside. Those of you familiar with this book can decide if you consider it a first edition or second first edition based upon the bindery fire which destroyed many first editions. I have priced the book well below current asking and historical selling prices on this site. It is a great opportunity for any collector to fill a hole in their collection. Please view all photos carefully and ask all questions before bidding. No returns. Ships to USA only, with standard USPS insurance. If buyer wants more insurance I will provide invoice for additional amount.

Hernandez, José
The Gaucho Martin Fierro is an epic poem and perhaps the most significant Argentinian literary contribution made in the 19thcentury, it is the pinnacle of the "poesia gauchesca" and considered the national poem of Argentina, the work deals the most romantic of all characters of Argentina: the Gaucho. This poem supplied a link to the rebellious gaucho contribution in the development of Argentina, from their participation in the independence from Spain, to the rejection of a process of "civilization", as expressed by Sarmiento in his Facundo; the gaucho was a hero and a pariah, the representative of what was autochthonous and what was a symbol of the past, a deterrent of progress, and the "barbarie". The poem is centered on the life of Martin Fierro, conscripted to fight the Indians, he becomes disenchanted with the cruelty and abuses of army life and eventually joins the Indians, and is told in what is known as "payadas", single verses that tell a story and narrate what is happening. Second edition, published a year after the first -extremely rare- and the first appearance outside of Argentina, published in parts over the run of 12 numbers -and thus hard to find complete. The poem had a second part, the Vuelta de Martin Fierro (first published in 1879) which didn't have the same acceptance the first had. The Martin Fierro has been translated into over 70 languages, and published in innumerable editions. The rarity of early editions is exceptional, the first edition has only appeared at auction once, in 1988 at Sotheby's, when it made 4,400 GBP; there is … [Click Below for Full Description]

Here, Ruskin's considerable expertise are a the forefront. The first volume argues, in the form of an extended defence of J.M.W. Turner, that painters that were then emerging from the tradition of picturesque were superior at the art of landscape than the old masters. Initially written as a standalone work, subsequent volumes would be written later. The second volume, originally published in 1846, placed emphasis on the symbolism in art, especially regarding nature; the third is of 'many things' in the author's own words; whereas volumes IV and V concentrate on the depiction of mountains and leaves, clouds and relativity respectively. Contains eighty-four illustrative plates and engravings, collated complete. CONDITION In decorative cloth binding with gilt detailing. Externally sound, there is some marking and wear to the boards, as well as wear to the extremities, backstrip and joints. The spines are also somewhat rubbed.

MAXWELL, James Clerk.
Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1873. First edition. Hardcover. <p>First edition, first issue, of Maxwell's presentation of his theory of electromagnetism, advancing ideas that would become essential for modern physics, including the landmark "hypothesis that light and electricity are the same in their ultimate nature" (Grolier/Horblit). "This treatise did for electromagnetism what Newton's <em>Principia</em> had done from classical mechanics. It not only provided the mathematical tools for the investigation and representation of the whole electromagnetic theory, but it altered the very framework of both theoretical and experimental physics. It was this work that finally displaced action-at-a-distance physics and substituted the physics of the field" (<em>Historical Encyclopedia of Natural and Mathematical Sciences</em>, p. 2539). "From a long view of the history of mankind -- seen from, say, ten thousand years from now -- there can be little doubt that the most significant event of the 19th century will be judged as Maxwell's discovery of the laws of electrodynamics" (R. P. Feynman, in <em>The Feynman Lectures on Physics</em> II (1964), p. 1-6). "[Maxwell] may well be judged the greatest theoretical physicist of the 19th century ... Einstein's work on relativity was founded directly upon Maxwell's electromagnetic theory; it was this that led him to equate Faraday with Galileo and Maxwell with Newton" (PMM). "Einstein summed up Maxwell's achievement in 1931 on the occasion of the centenary of Maxwell's birth: 'We may say that, before Maxwell, Physical Reality, in so far as it was … [Click Below for Full Description]
