        The Life of Christ

      London, Paris and New York - Cassell, Petter and Galpin, 1874. London, Paris and New York - Cassell, Petter and Galpin, 1874 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An earlyillustrated edition of Farrar's The Life of Christ with a colour map to frontispiece andoriginal black and white illustrations and embellishments throughout. Frederic William Farrar (1831 - 1903) was a cleric of the Church of England. Farrar's religious writings included Life of Christ (1874), which had great popularity, and Life of St. Paul (1879). His works were translated into many languages, especially Life of Christ. Farrar was a believer in universal reconciliation and thought that all people would eventually be saved, a view he promoted in a series of 1877 sermons. He originated the term abominable fancy for the long standing Christian idea that the eternal punishment of the damned would entertain the saved. Farrar published Eternal Hope in 1878 and Mercy and Judgement in 1881, both of which defend Christian universalism at length. Condition: In a half calf binding with cloth covered boards. Externally, sound but with wear to extremities and occasional marks and rubbing to boards. Joints starting very slightly and front hinge strained. Internally, firmly bound. Bright but with occasional slight foxing and marks to pages. Overall: GOOD.

        Original Hand-Colored Lithograph, â??St. Patrickâ??s Day in Americaâ?

      New York: Thomas Kelly, 1874 New York: Thomas Kelly, 1874. Approximately 26 x 20â?; contemporarily framed and glazed, overall approximately 25 x 30â?; the frame is wood with an inner moulding in gilt (some scrapes and wear): the print has minor staining and light browning where it had been backed by wood. We have found few examples of this print, but it was apparently available as a black and white lithograph, or, such as this one, hand-colored. The complex scene portrays the parade in Union Square in Manhattan, depicting floats, marching soldiers, and mounted officers on their way past a reviewing stand. Police officers line the crowded route and a streetcar is stopped to allow the procession to continue. The floats carry banners and a bust of Daniel Oâ??Connell; American and Irish (harp) flags fly along the route and atop buildings. The traditional New York parade had begun 25 years or so earlier, but this appears to be one of its earliest illustrations.

Gray began seriously writing poems in 1742, mainly after his close friend Richard West died. Gray spent most of his life as a scholar in Cambridge, and only later in his life did he begin travelling again. Although he was one of the least productive poets (his collected works published during his lifetime amount to fewer than 1,000 lines), he is regarded as the foremost English-language poet of the mid-18th century. In 1757, he was offered the post of Poet Laureate, which he refused. With previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown. With Riviere binder's stamp to verso offront free endpaper.

A significant religious works from Johann Baptist Franzelin, of 'The Society of Jesus': 'A Treatise on the Incarnate Word'. In Latin. Johann Baptist Franzelin (b. at Aldein, in Tyrol, 15 April 1816; d. at Rome, 11 December 1886) was an Austrian Jesuit theologian and Cardinal. Driven from Rome by the revolution of 1848, he went successively to England, Belgium, and France, where he was ordained in 1849. In 1850 he returned to the Roman college as assistant professor of dogma, and lecturer on Arabic, Syriac, and Chaldean. In 1853 he became prefect of studies in the German college, and in 1857 professor of dogmatic theology in the Roman college, where he remained for nineteen years, winning for himself by his lectures and publications a foremost place among the theologians of that time. During this period he acted as Consultor to several Roman Congregations, and aided in the preliminaries of the First Vatican Council, in which he afterwards served as papal theologian. In 1876, despite his protests, he was raised to the cardinalate by Pope Pius IX. This dignity made almost no change in his scrupulously simple and laborious life. As a cardinal, his sole departure from strict adherence to the Jesuit rule was to omit the daily recreation. Moreover, though constantly engaged as prefect of the Congregation of Indulgences and Relics, and consultor of several other congregations, he steadily refused the aid of a secretary. His entire income as cardinal he distributed among the poor, the foreign missions, and converts whose property had been seized by the Italian government. Condition: In a halfvellum binding with marbled boards and morocco spine label. Externally very sound although rubbed, with some loss to the paper. Remnants of library label to spine. Internally, firmly bound. Marginal age-toning, but generally clean with just the odd spot. Monastic library bookplate to front pastedown. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Die Predil-Bahn. Handschriftliche Dokumentation zum Bau der Bahn.

      ohne Ortsangabe (ev. Wien), 1874.. 32 S.; 7 S.; 8 S.; 12 S.; 6 S., 1 statistisches Doppelblatt, 1 gefaltetes statistisches Blatt, 1 Eisenbahnlinien-Faltkarte (wohl gedruckt aber mit handschriftlichen Eintragungen). DIN A-4, 2 Teile mit Fadenheftung, meist lose und gelockert.. Interessantes handschriftliches Dossier zum Bau der sog. Predil-Bahn, die allerdings nicht gebaut wurde. Aus dem Besitz eines K.u.K.-Eisenbahndirektors der auch in die Planungen involviert war, dessen Namen wir aber leider nicht entziffern können. Bereits kurz nach der Errichtung der Linie Wien-Semmering-Triest (1857) entstand der Wunsch, auch die nördlichen Länder(Böhmen, Mähren, Schlesien) mit dem österreichischen Seehafen Triest zu verbinden. Bayern hatte bereits im Jahre 1851 sein Interesse an Triest klar bekundet. Im Jahre 1865 beschäftigte sich der österreichische Ministerrat mit folgenden zwei Projekten: dem Bau einer Bahn von Tarvis über Udine nach Triest("Udine-Bahn") und der Streckenführung von Tarvis über Predil nach Triest ("Predil-Bahn"). Angesichts der mangelhaften Nutzung der Geleise der "Südbahn-Gesellschaft" war in den Bereichen Görz/Monfalcone-Triest der Abschluß eines "Mitbenutzungs-Vertrages" vorgesehen. Nach dem Verlust Venetiens im Jahr 1866 war jedoch klar, daß die "Udine-Bahn" für Österreich nur eine Linie von internationaler Bedeutung darstellen könne. Heute stellt diese "Udine-Bahn" , bzw. "Pontebbana" ( heute ist das die Hochleistungs-Strecke) das Bindeglied zwischen Linz (Wien) -Salzburg und Triest/Venedig dar. Ursprünglich schien die "k.k.priv. Kronprinz Rudolfbahn-Gesellschaft" gemäß ihrer Konzessions-Urkunde von 1866 dazu berufen zu sein, die "Predil-Bahn" herzustellen. Doch die Anlage eines "Predil-Tunnels" (ca. 9 km) war letzten Endes eine gewagte Groß-Unternehmung, die nur vom Staat hätte durchgeführt werden können. Der erste große Alpentunnel Österreichs soll erst bis 1884 in Form des "Arlberg-Tunnels"(10,2 km) hergestellt werden. - Der erste 32 Seiten umfassende Teil behandelt die genauere Beschreibung der geplanten Trasse, Ein 2. Teil (7 beschriebene Seiten) von anderer Hand geschrieben, gibt nähere Auskünfte übder den Frachtenverkehr, mit zahlreichen statistischen Aufführungen. Ein 3. Teil (8 Seiten beschrieben und ev. von einem M. M. von Wehlis unterschriebenes) Dokument scheint nochmal Vor- und Nachteile aufzuführen (leider schwer lesbar, teils stärker braun- und sporspurig, mit leichterem Mäusefraß, allerdings ohne wesentlichen Textverlust). Ein 4. Teil (wiederum von anderer Hand) ist betitelt mit: Gemarkungen (?) zum Projekt der Bozen-Meran-Bahn... (12 beschrieben Seiten), weitere 6 beschriebene Seiten zum Thema, von anderer Hand. - Sehr seltenes Dokument! Unikat! - Teils wasserrandig und stärker gebräunt, mit Randläsuren, an den Rücken der Fadenbindungen meist etwas rissig und locker, vereinzelt sporfleckig. Der Faltplan in den Faltungen etwas rissig.
