        Percement du tunnel sous-marin entre la France et l'Angleterre. -Ventilation des mines de Marles. (MANUSCRIT)

      1875 - Manuscrit in-4 relié pleine percaline grenat de l'époque avec le titre gravé à froid sur les plats. 128 pages manuscrites. Très important travail manuscrit. Les auteurs analysent au début de leur travail les raisons des résistances qui se sont opposées à l'exécution de ce grand projet contemporain du percement de l'isthme de Suez et de l'exécution des grands tunnels sous les Alpes; ils font confiance aux traités internationaux, ils estiment que l'Angleterre 'est entrée résolument aujourd'hui dans le concert économique de l'Europe dont elle est un des plus féconds éléments'. L'historique s'ouvre sur la première proposition en 1802 de percement d'une voie charretière pour relier la France à l'Angleterre; il énumère à la suite les projets de Favre, du Docteur Payerne, de Franchet et Teissier. Sont évoqués également les projets de Castanier, et surtout de Thomé de Gamont qui, le premier pour son tunnel sous marin, réussit à interesser l'opinion publique. Dès 1856 il présenta un projet de tunnel sous marin entre le Cap Grinez et Douvres; le budget final du projet de Thomé de Gamont après des modifications de tracé était de dix huit millions de Francs. Au moment de la rédaction du manuscrit, une compagnie formée sous le titre 'Association du chemin de fer sous marin entre la France et l'Angleterre' avait pris la direction des travaux préparatoires; la concession avait été obtenue des gouvernements Anglais et Francais le 2 Août 1875. Les planches annoncées dans le texte ne figurent pas dans le manuscrit. A la suite du texte sur le tunnel se situe un travail sur la ventilation des Mines de Marles dont un premier puits commencé en 1853 s'était écroulé et comblé complètement [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed.

      Bayreuth, 2. VI. 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 Save for a short quotation in a 1977 Stargardt catalogue, this letter is unpublished and therefore especially valuable.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.

      Philadelphia: 1875. 1st edition thus. Original cloth binding, 8vo,  [4], 164, 20 pages (188 pages total) . Text in Hebrew and German. Goldman 63; This edition unrecorded and apparently unknown to Ya'ari or Yudlov. THE FIRST AMERICAN REFORM HAGGADAH. Higayon Lev (Logic of the Heart) was a liturgical volume for private devotion which was published to supplement the popular Avodat Yisrael prayerbook that Jastrow had created, based on the earlier work of Benjamin Szold. Jastrow?s revisions ?creatively modified the classical contours of the Siddur preserved in Szold?s version and added many new prayers. ? Among its contents are: selections from Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) ; daily prayers for women, children (and adults who lack the time to complete the regular liturgy) , all accompanied by a non-literal German translation. There is also a fascinating appendix of children?s prayers which includes, in addition to the more standard basic prayers, special prayers to be recited on one?s birthday as well as on a parent?s birthday. The most important component of the new edition however is Jastrow's Haggadah, (pages 35-54) , the first printed in America that demonstrates the influence of Reform. Here, the Hebrew elements are reduced to a minimum and incorporate many emendations, even to such quintessential texts as Ha Lahma Anya, Vehi She?amdah and the Four Questions (here reduced to a single query) .   When Jastrow reprinted the text with an English translation three years later, he wrote, "this plain narrative is well adapted to suggest many a thought as to what duties are incumbent on the Israelites of our own days, and especially in countries like ours where the morn of religious liberty has already dawned and is shedding its roseate light over all inhabitants alike. ? SUBJECT(S) : Judaism -- Prayers and devotions. Reform Judaism -- Liturgy -- Texts. Siddurim. OCLC lists 8 copies worldwide.

        Reynard ye Foxe, a set of ten drawings representing scenes from the fable. Reproduced in facsimile by S. Hurd.

      [London]: W.B. Paterson, [n.d. c. 1875?]. Very large 4to (18.25 x 14.25 inches.), (2) ff. title page and list of illustrations, 10 mounted color plates. Enclosed in the original rough cloth portfolio lettered in black. Only edition, very scarce, no copy recorded for sale, only 2 copies in WorldCat -- UCLA and National Art Library (UK). “Crawhall for the last twenty-five years of his life had a free hand to devote time to artistic pursuits. He was fascinated by the past. This led to a specific interest in reproducing the kind of woodcuts and engravings associated with ancient chapbooks and ballad sheets. Although medieval glass and manuscripts were part of his inspiration, other decisive influences included the work of Thomas Bewick, which he much admired, and the rich tradition of producing chapbooks and ballad sheets which was attached to his native Newcastle. By 1859 Crawhall had begun to produce books illustrated with his own engravings. These were after the style of the old ‘comic cuts’ hacked out with a knife, and proofs were often hand coloured. Some of his works were reprinted in the second half of the twentieth century, provoking interest because of the intriguing nature of their contents. At the age of sixty, when many consider retirement, Joseph entered the most creative and productive phase of his life. His capacity for work seemed limitless and he added Valentine cards, Christmas cards, and children's books to an ever growing list of woodcuts and chapbooks. Many of his works reflected his wide interests. He was a keen angler, and a number of his early books were on fishing, including the Newcastle Fisher's Garland of 1864, a collection of songs and poems about the pastime. He was also a musician with a love of the Northumbrian pipes and north-eastern songs. His Beuk o' Newcassel Sangs (1888) was produced by subscription and reprinted in 1965 at the time of the ‘folk revival’. His love of art alone may have gained him a lasting reputation. His close connections with the Bewick family enabled him to place many of Bewick's works in his personal collection as well as to bring them to the attention of fellow Novocastrians. As a leading member of the Newcastle Arts Association he helped to organize a number of successful exhibitions and is held responsible for much of the groundwork for the city's current art collections. Along with his brothers he was a keen rower and supporter of aquatics at a time when Tyneside was a world centre for the sport. He also found time to collect books and follow developments in archaeology. Another interesting aspect of Crawhall's life was the work emanating from his friendship with the Punch cartoonist Charles Keene. Crawhall's sharp wit and lively sense of humour led to a heavy involvement with Keene. For more than twenty-five years he provided his friend with rough drawings and ‘punch’ lines which the cartoonist then completed and published.” DNB. A copy sold at auction in 2004 for £575.

Anhang II: Die Evacuation in den Monaten August, September, October des Jahres 1878 während der Occupation Bosniens und der Herzegowina. XII S., 4 Falttabellen und 7 Formulartabellen. - Der österreichische Arzt J. Mundy (1822-1894) war ein innovativer und engagierter Vorkämpfer für ein verbessertes Sanitätswesen in Österreich. Technisch sehr begabt, konstruierte Mundy in dieser Zeit verschiedene Tragbahren, Ambulanzwagen und ganze Sanitätszüge, um den sachgemäßen Transport der Verwundeten zu gewährleisten. Er entwickelte später auch gemeinsam mit Ingenieur Hugo Zipperling die Ausrüstung der Sanitätszüge. - Ohne Unterstützung des Österreichischen Staates setzte er sich in seiner Funktion als General-Chefarzt des Malteser Ritterordens ab 1875 wieder unermüdlich für eine Reform des öffentlichen und Militärsanitätswesens und für die Gründung einer Erste-Hilfe Organisation ein und stellte in der vorliegenden ersten Schrift ein mustergültiges Beispiel für einen Sanitätswagen vor. Doch der Kaiser Franz Joseph ließ die Unterstützung nach anfänglicher Bereitschaft wieder fallen (verwundete Soldaten schienen ihm offenbar nicht so wichtig). Der Malteserorden verhandelte daraufhin selbst mit der Eisenbahngesellschaft einen Vertrag zur Schaffung solcher Sanitätszüge. Diese kamen im türkisch-russischen Krieg von 1877/1878 erstmals zum Einsatz. Der Chirurg Theodor Billroth bezeichnete Mundy als „einen der größten praktischen Humanisten seines Jahrhunderts". - Exemplar aus der ehemaligen Bibliothek des Ophtalmologen Herzog Carl Theodor in Bayern (1839-1909), sehr gut erhalten.

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

      1875. vol. CXV, nos. 1-4; 1876, vol. CXXI, nos. 1-2, vol. CXXII, nos. 3-4, vol. CXXVI, No 12; 1877, vol. CXXVII, nos. 1-4. 8vo, pp. [243]-336, [1], [742]-817, [2], [246]-316, [1], [572]- 641, [1], [305]-390, [679]-745, [1], [291]-339, [1], [641]-693, [1], [687]-737, [1], [267]-324, [1], [830]-898, [329]-382, [709]- 763, [1]. 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.

        Autograph letter signed.

      [London], 20. I. 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 apparently do not 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 has 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.

        Panorama of Constantinople in 10 parts.

      - Constantinople, G. Berggren, ca. 1875. Original photograph, albumen print, in 10 parts (242 cm on a 270 cm mount) in original dark red cloth portfolio, with gilt title in arabic. With original mounted label Bergrenns: G. Berggren, Photographe de S. M. Le Roi de Suède et Norvège. Graande Rue de Pera No. 414, Constantinople. Inner joints as usual somewhat faded but in all a very nice panoramic view. Berggren, Guillaume (1835-1920), Swedish photographer who started work as an apprentice carpenter in 1850. He left Sweden in 1855, learned photography in Berlin, and settled in Constantinople in 1866, opening a studio in the Grande Rue de la Pera in the early 1870s. Berggren combined studio work - portraits of travellers and dignitaries, with the option of posing in Turkish attire - with the sale of prints offering a range of Ottoman motifs. He photographed the street scenes and architecture of Constantinople, including all its mosques, and the landscapes, ruins, and major religious sites of the Bosporus region. He also recorded developments and events such as the construction of the Anatolian railway, and the inauguration of the Orient Express in 1883. In the 1890s he made a remarkable series of documentary portraits of Constantinople's working people: bakers, street sellers, harbour workers, and prostitutes. (Jan-Erik Lundström).
