        Autograph letter signed. Bayreuth, 2. VI. 1875.

      1875. Large 8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium. Important letter to the publisher Adolf Fuerstner in Berlin about the publication of the final edition of "Tannhäuser", recorded in Wagner's catalogue of works as "state 4", which since 1876 has remained to this day the most widely used and staged version. Save for a short quotation in a 1977 Stargardt catalogue, this letter is unpublished and therefore especially valuable. Fuerstner had taken over the rights from Meser at Dresden, who had published the first edition in 1845. Now, Wagner sends him the signed contract, announces the finally-revised full score, explains the main changes he has made, and remains in joyful anticipation of receiving the agreed sum of 3,000 Goldmarks. Moreover, he reports that the Russian-born pianist and composer Josef Rubinstein, a friend and ardent admirer of Wagner's, will finish the arrangement of the Venusberg scene within the next few days and send it to Fuerstner. - Rubinstein was famous for excellent pianoforte transcriptions including the "Ring des Nibelungen"; in 1869 he was appointed "Kammerpianist" by Grand Duchess Helena.

        Insectivorous Plants. London, John Murray, 1875.

      1875. 8vo. X, 462 pp. With woodcut illustrations in text. Contemp. full calf with spine gilt in six compartments, giltstamped green spine label, gilt inner dentelle, leading edges gilt. Marbled endpapers; all edges marbled. First edition. - Presentation copy from the library of the British architect William Cecil Marshall (1849-1921), inscribed to him on the half-title ("From the Author") by a clerk at the publisher's, and with Marshall's autograph ownership above that. Darwin and Marshall had corresponded over insectivorous plants the previous year (cf. Darwin Correspondence Project no. 9627F, letter dated 7 Sept. [1874]). In 1876 Darwin would engage the architect's services to build an extension to Down House on the north side (a billiard room with dressing room and bedroom above). - Extremeties worn; front marbled flyleaf weakened. Still an appealing copy.

        The Bosporus and Istanbul. [Istanbul], 1875.

      1875. Oil on wood. Signed and dated. Framed (455 x 258 mm). Museum-quality panoramic painting of Istanbul with steamships and sailboats on the Golden Horn and the Hagia Sophia in the background. The foreground is dominated by the Grand Vezier Hüseyin Avni Pasha in a coach, escorted by horsemen, surrounded by a crowd. - The Regensburg-born Heinrich Lang, noted painter of horses and battles as well as writer and illustrator, studied with Karl Steffek in Berlin, Friedrich Voltz and Franz Adam in Munich and Adolf Schreyer in Paris. He travelled to Greece and Turkey and proved himself a careful observer of Ottoman costume and culture. His colourful paintings of Turkish tradesmen, camel drivers, donkey-drawn wagons and splendidly decorated carriages show his great attention to detail and were greeted by contemporaries as a much-welcomed relief from the grey military scenes that had dominated the previous years (cf. ADB Ll, 551).

        Collection of 27 cardboard-backed photographs by Félix Bonfils (24), Jakob August Lorent (1), the brothers Zangaki (1) and an unknown artist (1). Palestine, c. 1875.

      1875. C. 258 x 325 mm (cardboard); image dimensions c. 222 x 284 mm. Albumen prints (vintage) on cardboard. By Bonfils, from Bethlehem: "Tombeau de Rachel" (no. 336); "Puits des Mages" (889); "Entrée des pèlerins à Bethléem, le jour de Noël" (892, illustrated in Wieczorek/Sui, "Ins Heilige Land", p. 106); "Vue générale de Bethléem, du puits de David" (1225) and interior of the Church of the Nativity (uncaptioned); from Jaffa: "Place du marché vue générale" (238, ill. with alternative caption in W./S., p. 67); from Jerusalem: "Porte de Jaffa" (244, ill. with alternative caption in W./S., p. 73); "Mur des Juifs en vendredi" (245); "Façade du St-Sépulcre" (246); "Prison de St. Pierre" (250); "Arc de l'Ecce Homo" (252); "Ruelle allant au palais d'Hérode" (259); "Coupoles du St.-Sépulcre" (274); "Vue générale de la mosquée d'Omar" (278); interior of the Dome of the Rock ([279], illustrated with caption but trimmed in W./S., p. 85); "Porte donnant accès au-dessous du rocher" (280); "Vue générale de l'emplacement du temple de Salomon" (285); "Porte de Damas" (287); "Jardin de Gethsemané, vue générale" (303, ill. trimmed in W./S., p. 76); "Vallée de Josaphat" (310); "Intérieur du St-Sépulcre avec ornements" (850); "Grotte de Sainte-Hélène, intérieur" (855 bis); "Entrée de Jérusalem près de la porte de Jaffa" (1037) and "Rue de la Porte de Jaffa" (1038). - By Lorent: "Tombeau de David sur le Mont Sion" (288). This is apparently a print of the 1864 image illustrated in Wieczorek/Sui (p. 88), made by Bonfils and supplied with a caption. Curiously, that image is trimmed by several centimeters on the left, as compared to our print. - By the Zangakis: "Jerusalem", "Eglise du Pater couloir" (1018). - Anonymous: "Juive, costume riche" (1). - 4 photographs show slight edge defects. Occasional staining to cardboard edges, but mainly clean and well-preserved, with German ms. pencil captions.

        Autograph letter signed. [London], 20. I. 1875.

      1875. 4to. 1 p. In French, to the Parisian printer Louis Justin Lahure (ca. 1850-1878), who was supposed to be producing the French edition of "Das Kapital" but had lately been trying the author's patience: "Monsieur, Vous recevez aujourd'hui deux paquets contenant p. 982-1033. Vous n'avez plus qu'à recevoir 28 pages écrites qui forment la conclusion du manuscrit. Reste alors la post-face de même que les tables des matières et des errata lesquelles je ne peux faire sans avoir devant moi l'ensemble des livraisons pas encore publiées. Comme vous semblez vouloir ne répondre à mes lettres ni envoyer des épreuves, ni procéder avec l'impression que jusqu'au moment qu'il vous plaira de choisis, je vous donne avis que mon temps n'est pas absolument à votre disposition [...]" ("Dear Sir, You receive today two packets containing pp. 982-1033. Only 28 pages, forming the conclusion of the manuscript, are outstanding. There remains the afterword, as well as table of contents and the errata, which I cannot prepare without having before me all the as yet unpublished livraisons. As you do not apparently wish to answer my letters nor send proofs, nor seem desirous so far to make up your mind, I advise you that my time is not absolutely at your disposition [...]"). On the same day, Marx wrote to Max Oppenheim in Prague, describing his preoccupation with the French translation of the "Capital" and noting that he had introduced many changes and additions to the final parts of the French edition. Ten days later, Marx wrote to his publisher Lachâtre in Brussels, announcing his having finally completed the manuscript. He explains once more that he cannot go ahead with the table of contents, errata or afterword without the unpublished fascicles and complains that Lahure has stopped printing altogether three months previously: "He has not even returned the proofs of livraisons 34 and 35, and I am now beleaguered with other work [...] As I do not wish again to write to this gentleman, I would request you to communicate to him your instructions" (cf. MEW 34, p. 120, no. 4). According to the contract with Lachatre, the "Capital" was to appear in 44 livraisons of one print sheet each. In fact, five such instalments were combined into a series, so that the French edition was published between September 1872 and November 1875 as livraisons I through IX. Not in: MEW 34 (Berlin 1966): Briefe Jan. 1875-Dez. 1880.

        ANNA KARENINA: FIRST APPEARANCE IN PRINT] Anna Karenina // Russkiy vestnik [Russian Herald]

Any sections of text not from Anna Karenina are covered in old paper. Inkstains to first few leaves, edges guarded, some mild staining and fingermarking in places, some marginal waterstaining towards the end. Contemporary half morocco, re-backed preserving original spine. All parts bound together. Anna Karenina was serialized in Russkiy Vestnik in 1875. This copy was created by a devoted reader who removed all the parts from 13 issues of the journal and bound them in a single volume. Owing to a political disagreement between Tolstoy and the journal's publisher, Mikhail Katkov, over Serbian independence (Katkov and his journal were in favour, and Tolstoy was against) the last part of the story was never printed. A complete edition (with the final part) was published in book form in 1878, but this was the only separate edition (that is, excluding collections and selections) during Tolstoy's lifetime. Rare both as an example of devotion to Tolstoy by an unknown reader and as the first appearance in print of this canonical text. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Autograph letter signed to the editor of the Berliner Börsen Courier, George Davidsohn. An important letter regarding the first performance of portions of Götterdämmerung

      Apparently unpublished. Wagner-Briefe-Verzeichnis 7091, location "unknown." The concert in Berlin (actually, there were two, on April 24 and 25, 1875) was part of a series of performances designed to promote the inaugural Bayreuth Festival in 1876. Besides the immolation scene, the program included a "Grosses scenisches Vorspiel" (apparently an orchestral arrangement of the beginning of Götterdämmerung) and the scene of Siegfried's death. Barth, Mack, and Voss, eds., Wagner: A Documentary Study, p. 227, reproducing a broadside announcing a concert in Vienna on March 1, 1875. Amalie Materna (1844-1918) sang Brünnhilde at the inaugural 1876 Bayreuth Festival. Dr. Josef Standthartner (1818-1892) was a neurologist and patron of music in Vienna. "Music director Stern" possibly refers to Julius Stern (1820-1883), founder of the Stern'sches Konservatorium. George Davidsohn (1835-1897) was the editor-in-chief (and intitially, publisher) of the daily newspaper Berliner Börsen Courier.. 2 pp. Octavo. Dated Bayreuth, April 4, 1875. In black ink in Wagner's characteristically dense, elegant hand. In German (with translation). Wagner writes about preparations for an upcoming concert in Berlin featuring excerpts from his (then unperformed) opera Götterdämmerung. He confirms the participation of the Viennese soprano Amalie Materna, gives instructions for the program book, and discusses rehearsal work. The Viennese doctor and patron of music Josef Standhartner and a "music director Stern" in Berlin are mentioned. "Frau Materna has received her leave for leave for the Berlin concert... Her participation is making the full presentation of the concert possible since I would not have attempted the great closing scene [Brünnhilde's immolation] without her. You can now have the exact Vienna program for Berlin announced; I hope that the announcement of Materna as guest artist will have a definitive positive effect... I am greatly concerned about the orchestra this time. Is our friend, Music Director Stern, doing anything about it?"
