Accompanying letter from the composer "When honoring him with its Goddard Lieberson Fellowship, the American Academy of Arts and Letters noted that 'A rare economy of means and a strain of religious mysticism distinguish the music of James Primosch... Through articulate, transparent textures, he creates a wide range of musical emotion.' Andrew Porter stated in The New Yorker that Primosch 'scores with a sure, light hand' and critics for the New York Times, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Dallas Morning News have characterized his music as 'impressive,' 'striking,' 'grandly romantic,' 'stunning' and 'very approachable.'

        Hong Kong, Happy Valley Cemetery

      Hong Kong 1875 - Albumen print, mounted. 8 ½ x 12 inches. Manuscript caption on mount: “The Happy Valley Hong Kong.” This is one of the earliest photographic views of Hong Kong, Happy Valley Cemetery founded in 1845. The Happy Valley Cemetery sits directly across from the Happy Valley Racecourse, which it predates. “The name Happy Valley was given to the area before the Cemetery was opened. Perhaps it was so called because it was considered the most fertile and the prettiest place on the north coast” (Lim, Forgotten Souls 5). Happy Valley was first intended to be the business center of Hong Kong but climate conditions prevented this. The Hong Kong, Happy Valley Cemetery was built as a series of terraces up the hillside. This is an early view of the oldest graves in the burial ground. The remains of the wealthy, powerful, and controversial figures of old Hong Kong are found in the cemetery including Sir Kai Ho Kai and Yang Quyun, advisers of Sun Yatsen.

        Landschaft im Hopfgarten bei Weimar

      1875. Öl auf Papier, auf Holz montiert, unten links signiert und datiert: "W. Zimmer 1875", verso auf der Holzplatte bezeichnet: "Wilh Zimmer No 35 Hopfgarten bei Weimar", 25,7 x 19,2 cm. Guter Zustand inkl. Rahmen. Wilhelm Zimmer war Mitglied der Weimarer Malerschule, die ab der zweiten Hälfte der 1870er Jahre vor allem auf dem Gebiet der Landschaftsmalerei bekannt geworden war. Neben München hatten die Weimarer intensiv und zugleich eigenständig die Einflüsse aus Frankreich, besonders Barbizon, aufgenommen. Eine Schlüsselrolle bei dieser Entwicklung kam dem 1871 nach Weimar berufenen Düsseldorfer Maler Theodor Hagen (1842-1919) zu, der seine Schüler zur Erprobung des neuen Stils ermutigte. Wilhelm Zimmer war Schüler bei Hagen und dem französischen Vorbild folgend praktizierte auch er eine hellere und leichtere Malerei, die sich vornehmlich an lokalen Motiven entfaltete. Dem entsprechend zeigt unser Ölbild von Zimmer den Hopfgarten bei Weimar. In den Park und gleichermaßen in das Bild führt ein wenig befestigter Weg, der gesäumt ist von Wiesen und Bäumen. Geprägt ist das dezente und dennoch subtile Bild von einer zurückhaltenden, grau-grünen Palette, in deren Farbtönen das fast symmetrische Kompositionsschema aus vier Dreiecken, deren Spitzen in der Bildmitte zusammenstoßen, eingefärbt ist. Der getragenen Farbigkeit tritt ein dynamischer, sich im Bild entwickelnder Pinselstrich an die Seite. Die Faktur steigert sich von gedeckter, erdenschwerer Materialhaftigkeit im unteren Bilddrittel über die Biegung des Wegs hin zu dem rechts im Bild stehenden Baum, der sich luftig gegen den grauen Himmel hin verästelt. Die Pinselführung ist hier duftig und filigran, mit tänzelnden Tupfern gibt Zimmer die von sanftem Wind bewegte Baumkrone wieder. Gerade der Gegensatz zwischen von Farbe gesättigtem Pinsel-strich und befreiter Pinselführung sind Teil der Qualität des Bildes, erscheinen doch die luftigeren Passagen im Bild dadurch noch frischer und freier. Auch wenn es eher ein rasch entstandenes Werk im OEuvre Zimmers ist, kann es als exemplarisch für die Weimarer Schule gelten, wurde doch schon 1873 von Bruno Meyer die "feine graue Tönung" als deren typisches Merkmal betont, sowie an anderer Stelle die ein-fachen, spröden Landschaftsmotive. Wie im Falle von Zimmers Bild sichtbar, dürfen diese stilistischen Merkmale jedoch in ihrer Wirkung nicht unterschätzt werden, da gerade die bescheidenen Motive im Zusammenspiel mit der kühlen Farbigkeit den Zeitgenossen für eine besondere Form von stimmungshafter Naturwahrnehmung standen. So ist anlässlich der Internationalen Kunstausstellung 1879 in München, die auch Zimmer beschickt hatte, über die Weimarer Landschaften zu lesen: "Jene feinfühlige Intimität mit der Natur, durch welche wir ihre leisen Pulsschläge empfinden und unser eigenes Fühlen von ihr verstanden, geteilt wähnen dürfen, hat in den verhältnismäßig zahlreichen Werken, mit denen die Weimaraner unsere Ausstellung beschickt haben, vielfach ihren vollendeten Ausdruck gefunden." Auch Zimmers Werk mag mit dem filigran belebten Baum und der gedämpften Licht- und Farbsituation dem zeitgenössischen Betrachter ein intimer, da durch Zurückhaltung geprägter Blick auf die Natur und deren ganz und gar verhaltenes, weil selbstverständliches Pulsieren gewesen sein.

        Les Heroides. Le remede d'amour. Les Pontiques-petits poemes

      Paris - Librairie Garnier Freres, 1875. Paris - Librairie Garnier Freres, 1875 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A captivating collection of french poetry in elegiac couplets. Written in the form of letters by famous mythological characters, andaddressed to theirpartners. With predominate focus on the characters emotions at being separated from their partners, pleas for their return, and allusions to their future actions within their own mythology. Characters from which the letters are written include the heroines Phaedra, Dido, and Hypermestra, all addressed to their absent male lovers. The Heroides markedly revealed the influence of rhetorical declamation and may derive from Ovid's interest in rhetorical suasoriae, persuasive speeches, and ethopoeia, the practice of speaking in another character. They also play with generic conventions; most of the letters seem to refer to works in which these characters were significant. The letters have been admired for their deep psychological portrayals of mythical characters, their rhetoric, and their unique attitude to the classical tradition of mythology. Condition: In original half crushed morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally, smart with minor rubbing to boards and extremities. Internally, Firmly bound with bright and clean pages.

        LS to Latimer Clark re Elisha Gray's British telegraph patents.

      New York 1875 - Field, Cyrus West (1819-92). L.s. to Latimer Clark. New York, December 9, 1875. 1 page. 202 x 128 mm. A few light stains, small hole punched in top margin not affecting text. Provenance: Latimer Clark. Field, a wealthy American businessman, organized the construction and laying of the first working transatlantic submarine telegraph cables in 1858, 1865, and 1866. Field became obsessed with the idea of a transatlantic telegraph after an encounter in 1854 with F. N. Gisborne, the head of an unsuccessful attempt to lay an underwater cable between New York and Newfoundland. To capitalize his venture, Field organized two companies: the New York, Newfoundland and London Electric Telegraph Company, in which Samuel F. B. Morse received a one-tenth interest to act as "advising electrician"; and the Atlantic Telegraph Company of Great Britain, formed in partnership with Charles Tilston Bright, George Saward, and John Brett. After obtaining support from the American and British governments, Field appointed Dr. Edward Orange Wildman Whitehouse, a self-taught amateur electrician, to supervise the monumental task of designing and manufacturing transatlantic telegraphy equipment and twenty-five hundred miles of insulated cable for laying between Newfoundland and Ireland. In August 1858, after several abortive attempts, the first complete transatlantic cable was laid by crews aboard the USS Niagara and HMS Agamemnon. Shortly afterward the cable began to malfunction, and failed permanently a few weeks after its installation.In 1859 the British government appointed a joint committee to investigate the causes of the cable's failure. During the course of the investigation it was discovered that the cable and transmitting system suffered from fatal design flaws, and steps were taken to correct these based on the recommendations of the physicist William Thomson (later Lord Kelvin). In 1865 Field and his companies launched another cable-laying voyage, this time aboard Isambard Kingdom Brunel's enormous steamship Great Eastern, but the cable snapped and sank after two-thirds of the job had been completed. A third voyage, attempted the following year, was successful: a new cable was laid, and the cable lost the previous year was grappled for and recovered. Rapid telegraphic communication between North America and Europe was finally possible.Field's association with Latimer Clark began when Clark was hired as an engineer by the Atlantic Telegraph Company some months after the failure of the 1858 cable. In the present letter, Field offers Clark his services in selling Clark's one-third interest in "Gray's patent for England" to the British government. "Gray" refers to Elisha Gray, the American inventor; a few months earlier, Field had obtained from Gray a one-third share in Gray's British patents in return for his assistance in marketing the patent rights and instruments.

        Merry Drollery Compleat

      Boston - printed by Robert Roberts, 1875. Boston - printed by Robert Roberts, 1875 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce, brightcopy of Merry Drollery Compleat. Bound in blue cloth. Scarce. Joseph Woodfall Ebsworth, 1824 1908, was a literary editor and a painter. He alsolater became the vicar of Molash in Kent. Ebsworth's true mtier however was as an editor. Working on the love poetry and popular street balladry of the seventeenth century, some of it was of a racy bawdiness not quite consonant with his clerical profession. He became one of the ablest and most energetic supporters of the Ballad Society, which had been founded in 1868, editing a number of works for the society. From 1879 onwards, Ebsworth embarked on his main labour for the Ballad Society, the completion of its edition of the Roxburghe collection of ballads in the British Museum. He freshly transcribed the texts, supplied exhaustive introductions, notes, and indexes, and grappled with recalcitrant printers. He characteristically introduced verses of his own, as prelude and envoi, and produced his own woodcuts after the original illustrations. Condition: The binding is firm. The inner hinges are slightly strained. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including some mild bumping and discolouration to the boards. The spine label has some very small sections missing. Internally the pages are bright with very mild spotting. Overall the condition is very good..

        Walks in the City of Canton

By The Venerable John Henry Gray, Archdeacon of Hongkong, late Commissary of the Diocese of Victoria, Hongkong, and formerly H.B.M. Consular Chaplain at Canton. With an Itinerary. Octavo. Near contemporary plum half morocco, dark brown linen boards, title gilt direct to the spine. With both errata slips present. A little rubbed, rebacked with the original spine, lacking a small piece at the head, laid down, light toning. First edition, extremely uncommon, COPAC locates just 5 copies - BL, V & A, Cambridge, Durham and Leeds, SOAS has only the 1974 reprint. Gray presents a guide-book offering seven detailed itineraries for walks taking in sights around the city, with references linking back to the substantial text providing the historical, social and "ethnographical" background. Gray, who spent nearly 30 years in the Far East, was noted for his relatively open-minded approach to the indigenous peoples, an attitude that emerges from the pages of the present work, and also from his major publication China: a History of the Laws, Manners and Customs of the People (1878) which the Athenaeum considered offered "the most truthful and vivid picture of Chinese life which has ever been published". Gray also formed an impressive collection of Chinese artefacts and antiques which was exhibited at the Vienna Exhibition of 1873, and subsequently at Crystal Palace.
