        Autograph letter signed in full to an unidentified male friend, in all likelihood the French musicologist and critic Louis Laloy (1874-1944)

      - 1 page. Octavo (ca. 168 x 122 mm). Dated Thursday evening. In black ink on mourning stationery. In French (with translation). "I have to attend [?Louis] Laloy's premiere; naturally that is tomorrow, on Friday. Would you change the enclosed tickets for Saturday? Thanks again."Slightly worn and browned; creased at folds and upper outer corner of final blank folio; small rust stain from paper clip to inner margin of final folio, not affecting text. "One of the most important musicians of his time, [Debussy's] harmonic innovations had a profound influence on generations of composers. He made a decisive move away from Wagnerism in his only complete opera Pelléas et Mélisande, and in his works for piano and for orchestra he created new genres and revealed a range of timbre and colour which indicated a highly original musical aesthetic." François Lesure and Roy Howat in Grove Music Online."Laloy was a noted defender of contemporary French music and was a close friend of, and mediator between, Ravel and Debussy, with whom he collaborated on some unrealized stage works; he was also the author of the first major work (and the first in the French language) on Debussy." John Trevitt in Grove Music Online.

        Bondekone med barn, hund og ko. Tusch og lavering.

      1874 1874 - Signeret 'Til Frøken Anna Hansen fra Nicolai Habbe i Januar 1874'. 29x23 cm. I let beskadiget træramme [39,5x33 cm.]. * Nicolai Habbes værker kan minde om W. Marstrands, hvilket undertiden har givet anledning til forveksling. H. havde som maler lært meget af Marstrand, en fast malerisk stil og en indtrængende karakteristik. Allerede omkring 1860 malede H. kraftige, impressionistiske billeder med livlig penselføring, der kan lede tanken hen på den stil, Krøyer og Tuxen tilegnede sig på Bonnats skole lang tid senere. Da H. gled ud af det danske kunstliv bosatte han sig permanent i Australien i 1875, hvor han hovedsagelig virkede som dekorations- og glasmaler. [Weilbach].

        Harry Heathcote of Gangoil: A Tale of Australian Bush Life

      Sampson Low, Marston, Low, & Searle, London 1874 - A Very Good copy of the first illustrated edition of this rather scarce Trollope novel in the Publisher's original blue cloth with the spine and front board lettered in gilt and decorated in gilt and black (some undulation to the spine, spotting to each board, small black mark to the rear board, spine ends somewhat rubbed, board corners rubbed through, bookplate of James McKean to the front pastedown featuring a dog and the motto "J'ai Bonne Esperance" meaning "I have good hope.") Written by Trollope based in part upon the experiences one of his sons had as an emigrant to Australia, the story first appeared as the 1873 Christmas Number of "The Graphic", followed by the quite rare first, and unillustrated, book edition (1874), with respect to which Sadleir states: "Harry Heathcote' in its genuine (unillustrated) first edition is of extreme rarity. No price records exist. Should a good copy come up for sale it will fetch as much as the most frenzied Trollopian present can afford to pay. It may perhaps be worth noting that in 1927 a good copy of the second issue (with illustrations) was offered by a bookseller for five guineas." The first edition was then quickly followed by this illustrated edition, issued for the 1874 Christmas market, containing The Graphic's 6 illustrations reduced in size, and using the first edition sheets (trimmed for this edition). As Sadleir notes, the true first edition of the novel is one of the scarcest of all Trollope titles. This first illustrated edition is itself uncommon and presents an opportunity for the Trollope collector to obtain the first edition sheets at a reasonable price. A Very Good copy of a scarce Trollope title. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Some Leading Principles of Political Economy Newly Expounded

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1874. Octavo. Original brown pebble-grain cloth, titles to spine gilt, panelling to boards in black, black coated endpapers. Tips a little ribbed, light spotting to contents. An excellent, bright copy. First edition. Cairnes (1823?1875), often described as the "last of the classical economists", was a key Irish political economist who developed and critiqued the work of John Stewart Mill. This, the last major book published in his lifetime, is a commentary on the principal doctrines of the English school of economists, such as wages, value, and labour. As he writes in the preface, his purpose here is "'to strengthen and add consistency' to the fabric constructed by Smith, Ricardo, Malthus, and Mill; and since in that work he defended the wages-fund doctrine after Mill had abandoned it, and showed himself unsympathetic towards Jevons's new approach to value theory it left a last, and lasting, impression of Cairnes as a very conservative political economist, which was not wholly deserved" (ODNB).

E 'stato per Victor Coué, tenente ucciso in azione durante la seconda guerra mondiale. Questa copia è arricchita con due testate; un ritratto colorata a mano litografia che rappresenta Félicien Rops carica Barbey d'Aurevilly e didascalia "Ha fatto la sua pagina ombra di TS."; e un ritratto dell'autore incisa da Paul Rajon Adolfo (1843 - 1888).

        Illustrations of China and its people. A series of two hundred photographs, with letterpress descriptive of the places and people represented.

      London, Sampson Low, Marston, Low, and Searle, 1873-1874. - Large folio. 4 vols. 110 ff., 74 blanks. With 218 collotype photograph views and portraits on 96 plates. Illustrated original cloth. All edges gilt. First edition of this monumental photographic work, recording the diversity of Chinese culture during the late 19th century in a wealth of views, portraits, and public scenes. The Scottish photographer John Thomson (1837-1921), a pioneer of photojournalism, was one of the first photographers to travel to the Far East, documenting the people, landscapes and artifacts of eastern cultures. After settling in Hong Kong in 1868 and establishing a studio there, Thomson spent four years travelling throughout China: he saw the southern trading port of Canton, the cities of Beijing and Shanghai, and the Great Wall, venturing deep into central China. He visited the Fukien region in 1870/71, travelling up the Min River by boat and proceeding to Amoy and Swatow. On the island of Formosa he visited the capital, Taiwanfu, before journeying on to the aboriginal villages on the west plains of the island. Three months were spent travelling 3000 miles up the Yangtze River to Hupeh and Szechuan. Thomson's travels in China were often perilous, as he visited remote, almost unpopulated regions far inland. Most of the people he encountered had never seen a westerner or camera before. Thomson had to transport a bulky wooden camera, many large, fragile glass plates, and potentially explosive chemicals. He photographed in a wide variety of conditions and often had to improvise because chemicals were difficult to acquire. His subject matter varied enormously: from humble beggars and street people to Mandarins, Princes and senior government officials; from remote monasteries to Imperial palaces; from simple rural villages to magnificent landscapes. - Many of the plates have German captions carefully pencilled in. Bindings professionally restored at extremeties, spines rebacked. Removed from the Geographical Institute of the University of Vienna, with their library stamp throughout and deaccession stamp to title pages. A fine set. Gernsheim 288f. OCLC 3384592.

A native of San Francisco, California, Carter began his career as a journalist and lawyer. As time passed, he grew an interest in magic. Due to stiff competition from the number of magic acts on the American stages at the time, Carter opted to pursue his career abroad, where he achieved his greatest fame. Among the highlights of Carter's stage performances during his career were the classic "cheating the gallows", where a shrouded Carter would vanish, just as he dropped at the end of a hangman's noose. This poster depicts the climax of that act. The Poster is done in lithography with the colours put on separately by the foremost America Film poster company OTIS of Cleveland. The colours are vibrant, there are some light creases now strengthened where the once rolled poster has been opened once to often, but these are now permanently sorted. No loss and still having the colour grid at border and also the measurement cross-hatching for the poster to be aligned when pasting up. A LOVELY and Unique POSTER that would suit a home with style, or for a Magic Museum type setting. Dates to about 1918-25 Carter (Charles Joseph) purchased the famous Martinka Magic Palace In San Fransisco in 1917, a time when he was unable to continue his lucrative world touring magic show. There was a story that he kept his lion, Monty in the back room of the shop and when it would roar, the startled customers would run for the door. He was the Magicians answer to Houdini who was an "escapologist". Carter was the consummate stage prestidigitator par-excellence, to Houdini's talented lock picking breath holding feats of the pre-Great War era. A fictionalized account of his life can be found in Carter Beats the Devil. This Poster with have with it a "SIGNED first edition of the 2001 UK 1st of this book Pre-dates the US version) AND a New York Tribune 1918 review of the "Temple of Magic" opened in 1918. This is a single page and is a facsimile of some sort, possibly 1950's-60's

        Autograph letter signed ("Ch. Darwin").

      Down, Beckenham, Kent, 7 Sept. [1874]. - 8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium. To the British architect William Cecil Marshall (1849-1921), whom Darwin engaged to build an extension to Down House on the north side (a billiard room with dressing room and bedroom above) in 1876, thanking him for some Pinguicula leaves, from which he has picked off sixteen seeds: "My dear Mr Marshall, I am very grateful to you. Your observations are excellent, & are put most clearly & will be very useful to me. I have picked off 16 seeds from this lot! The plant is certainly to a certain extent graninivorous also somewhat graminivorous, though mainly insectivorous. The rain, I know washes off the secretion & with it captured insects (& as you say seeds), which are retained by the incurved edges, which then become more incurved. It is a pretty experiment to put a row of flies or cabbage seeds on one margin of a flat leaf & see how the edge of the side curls over in from 12 to 24 hours. With cordial thanks, Yours very sincerely [.]". - Traces of folds; professionally repaired. On stationery with printed address. Darwin Correspondence Project no. 9627F.

        Trojanische Alterthümer

      Leipzig: F. A. Brockhaus,, 1874. Bericht über die Ausgrabungen in Troja. Octavo (217 x 140 mm). Contemporary patterned paper boards, gilt fillets to spine forming compartments, Gothic title gilt to second on red ground. Vignette title page, full-page line-drawing, occasional symbols and Greek types to the text. Extremities rubbed, old shelf-mark label to spine extending slightly over covers, various library ink-stamps to title page verso, pale foxing, variable faint tide-mark to fore and top edges, marginal ink-spot to p. XXXVI. A good copy. First edition. Schliemann's successful identification of Hisarlik in north-west Anatolia as the site of Homeric Troy is still considered today "the greatest of all archaeological finds" (PMM). His methods, which involved the destructive use of dynamite, were widely criticised by later scholars, but at the time his account of his discovery enjoyed a popularity unequalled by any previous work in the field. Schliemann, the son of a pastor from Mecklenburg, made his fortune in business before devoting himself entirely to proving the reality of the Homeric epics. "In 1870 [he] started work at Hisarlik and by 1873, at the lowest stratum, he laid bare vast fortifications destroyed by fire and discovered a treasure of gold jewellery ? What Schliemann had in fact discovered is now known to be a pre-Achaean city, long preceding the Homeric city; but he had proved his initial thesis: here was the real site of Troy" (idem).

        Photographs Showing Landscapes, Geological and Other Features of Portions of the Western Territory of the United States, Obtained in Connection with Geographical and Geological Explorations and Surveys West of the 100th Meridion. Seasons of 1871, 1872 and 1873

      Washington 1874 - (15 3/8 x 19 3/4 inches). On linen guards throughout. Lithographic title on card. 25 albumen photographs by O'Sullivan (18) and Bell (7), mounted on lettered Wheeler Survey two-tone mounts. Minor fading to a few images, some foxing to the linen guards. Contemporary half reddish brown morocco and cloth covered boards, spine with semi-raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges Iconic landscape images of the American West: a very rare Wheeler Expedition album of photographs by O'Sullivan and Bell. All of the present photographs were taken during the series of expeditions known by the collective title of the Geographical Surveys West of the 100th Meridian (or more usually as the Wheeler Survey, after its leader, Lieutenant George M. Wheeler). The photographs document the work and explorations of the survey, and include some of the earliest photographs taken of the Grand Canyon and of Indian tribes and sites in northern Arizona and New Mexico. A number of these images have achieved iconic status among the images of the early West. The survey's main goal was to make topographic maps of the southwestern United States and the present series of images focuses on the landscapes of this region. The present album contains images from each of the first three years of the Survey, and comprises the following subjects (with series identification numbers): Expedition of 1871 (all by O'Sullivan) No. 1. Snow Peaks, Bull Run Mining District, Nevada [I:1] No. 2 Group of Pah-Ute Indians, Nevada [I:2] No. 3. Bluff Opposite Big Horn Camp, Black Canon, Colorado River [I:3] No. 4. Black Canon, Colorado River, Looking Below from Big Horn Camp [I:4] No. 5. Black Canon, Colorado River, Looking Above from Camp 7 [I:5] No. 6.

Black Canon, Colorado River, from Camp 8, Looking Above [I:8] The first season saw the expedition endure many privations but despite this O'Sullivan was tireless in his efforts to record the magnificent scenery. "The extant views taken in 1871. show the pristine beauty of the canyon country. The surface of the Colorado River appears deceptively placid in these photographs, an illusion created by the [relatively] long exposure of the negatives. Not all the vantage points O'Sullivan used are accessible today. The construction of the Hoover Dam in 1936 submerged portions of the Colorado gorge under the waters of Lake Mead" (Wheeler's Photographic Survey of the American West). Expedition of 1872 (all by Bell) No. 1. Canon of Kanab Wash, Colorado River, Looking South [II:1] No. 2. Canon of Kanab Wash, Colorado River, Looking North [II:2] No. 3. Canon of Kanab Wash, Colorado River, Looking South [II:3] No. 4. Canon of Kanab Wash, Colorado River, Looking North [II:4] No. 5. Colorado River, Mouth of Kanab Wash, Looking West [II:5] No. 6. Grand Canon, Colorado River, Near Paria Creek, Looking West [II:6] No. 7. Grand Canon, Colorado River, Near Paria Creek, Looking West [II:7] "For the 1872 season, O'Sullivan was replaced by William Bell, who is variously identified as a Philadelphian or as an Englishman. all agree that he was a skilled photographer" (op. cit.). His photographs were taken using a dry plate process that had some advantages, but required much longer exposures than the wet plate process employed by O'Sullivan and most other photographers at the time. This obviously influenced his choice of subjects, but, clearly, in no way handicapped his ability to compose spectacular images of great beauty. Expedition of 1873 (all by O'Sullivan) No. 1.

        Romances sans paroles.

      - Sens, typographie de Maurice L'Hermitte, 1874 In-12, demi-percaline vert bronze de l'époque à la Bradel, dos orné d'un fleuron central et doubles filets dorés, pièce de titre de chagrin violine, 48, (1) p. dont faux-titre et titre. Edition originale "rare et très recherché" (Clouzot), tirée à 300 exemplaires sur papier ivoire. Verlaine était en prison lors de l’impression de ce recueil qu’il ne put dédier à Rimbaud par peur du scandale. Publié de façon confidentielle par Edmond Lepelletier, ami de Verlaine à la demande de celui-ci, le recueil resta inaperçu et il fallut attendre la réédition en 1887 chez Vanier pour qu’il trouve son public. " ‘Romances sans paroles’ marque un tournant radical dans l’oeuvre de Verlaine et dans l’histoire de la poésie française. Ce 'petit bouquin', qu’il rédige pendant sa liaison tumultueuse avec Rimbaud est hanté par la tentation du silence. Que peut la parole face à la réalité ? Comment dire les sentiments d’un moi erratique et opaque à lui-même ? Et surtout, comment les dire autrement, après le romantisme, qui les a exaltés, et le Parnasse, qui s’en est méfié ? En s’emparant d’un genre désuet, la romance, Verlaine réinvente le beau, renoue avec l’oralité au coeur de l’écrit, et fait du chant l’utopie de la parole poétique" (Arnaud Bernardet). Le titre est emprunté au recueil de pièces pour piano de Félix Mendelssohn. ('En Français dans le texte', 301. Montel, 'Bibliographie de Paul Verlaine', p. 18-20. Vicaire, VII, 991-992).

        Untitled (Black Death Map) 1874 Reissue of John Snow's Dot Map

      London: George Stanford, 1874. unbound. Map. Colored engraving. Image measures 15 x 16". This scarce map depicts the clusters of cholera or Black Death cases during the 1854 Broad Street Cholera outbreak in London. Originally created by John Snow, this map was published as part of the "Sixth Report of the Commissioners appointed in 1868 to inquire into the best means of preventing the pollution of rivers. The domestic water supply of Great Britain". The map extends from Margaret Street to Piccadilly Circus and from Hanover Square to Soho Square.<br><br>The Broad Street cholera outbreak of 1854 was the basis of John Snow's discovery that it was contaminated water and not air that spread cholera. John Snow, a physician at the time, conducted an elaborate investigation, after which he determined the source of the outbreak to be the public water pump at the intersection of Broad street (Broadwick Street) and Cambridge street (Lexington Street). The pump is located in the center of this particular map. He later developed this dot map in 1855 to show how the cholera cases were centered on the pump and mapped the locations and distances of other pumps nearby, thus proving that the disease spread through the closest available sources of water connected to the Broad Street pump.<br><br>This particular map was issued in the 1874 "Sixth Report of the Commissioners appointed in 1868 to inquire into the best means of preventing the pollution of rivers. The domestic water supply of Great Britain". The report was presented to both houses of Parliament by command of Her Majesty. The map is in very good condition with minor wear along the folds and some foxing. Very small repair over bottom margin, not affecting the image. Important infographic map
