        ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER / HIS LIFE AND HIS PHILOSOPHY

      Longmans, Green and Co, London 1876 - X, [2], 249, [3] pp. Original brown cloth with black title and decoration on front board, gilt title on spine. This variant binding with 2 horizontal lines on upper board and spine in gilt. Pages uncut, with portrait (Schopenhauer in steel-engraving) and protective paper bound in. Original black coated endpapers [rare and no longer available nowedays in sheets for restauration]. Some cloth missing at lower hinge [1 inch], however binding complete and strong. Some pages cut open a bit roughly at head of pp., no text missing however. Apart from being a good biography of Schopenhauer (most recent reprint in 2000), this first edition is important in the history of German intellectual life. Cosima Wagner notes on 4 February 1876 in her diary: Huebsches Buch von einer englischen Damen, Helen Zimmern, Biographie Schopenhauer's, mit grosser Verstaendnis gemacht. The copy sent to the Wagners resulted in an invitation to the Bayreuther Festspiele in July of the same year, where Zimmern met Nietzsche. Later (1886) Zimmern spent a few weeks in Sils Maria when Nietzsche was also there. Of the presentation copies of Jenseits she received 2. Her contact will have inspired her for the translation of Jenseits von Gut und Bose, published for the first time in 1907, and also included in the first English edition of the collected works a few years later at Foulis. An interesting copy in rare state. 4 in COPAC.

        Portraitphotographie (Albuminabzug) mit eigenh. Widmung und U. verso.

      O. O., wohl 1876.. 138:101 mm (Portrait) auf etwas größerem Untersatzkarton.. Die auf der Verso-Seite des Untersatzkartons aus dem Atelier des k. k. Hofphotographen Fritz Luckhardt mit sepiafarbener Tinte geschriebene Widmung ist gerichtet an Carl Brandt: "Lieber Brandt | wenn wir erst zum | letzten Brand | gekommen sein werden, | wollen wir Lachnerin | einen Hahn | schlachten | Dieses gelobend bin ich | Ihr | dankbarer Richard Wagner". - Carl Brandt war in den Jahren 1876 und 1882 Bühnenmeister der Bayreuther Festspiele und ein enger Mitarbeiter Wagners (Kaiser, s. u.). Wagners Widmung ist zwar undatiert, dürfte aber aus dem Jahre 1876 stammen und Bezug auf das Schlußbild der "Götterdämmerung" nehmen. Das Portrait mit Wagners Widmung findet Erwähnung im Wagner-Briefe-Verzeichnis (unter A 673) und im Auktionskatalog von Leo Liepmannsohn (Kat. 63, Nr. 193). - Die Bildseite etwas fleckig, die Schrift verso etwas verblaßt. - Hermann Kaiser: Der Bühnenmeister Carl Brandt und Richard Wagner.

        Leaves of Grass [PLUS] Two Rivulets

      Camden 1876 - This set of the privately-published author’s edition, is inscribed by Whitman in each volume: “Godfrey Lushington from the author.” Leaves of Grass is additionally signed by Whitman on the title-page, and Two Rivulets is signed “Walt Whitman born May 31 1819” on the frontispiece mounted albumen photograph. Godfrey Lushington (1832-1907), the recipient of these volumes, was a British civil servant and reformer who rose to Permanent Under-Secretary at the Home Office in 1885. The set is accompanied by the original autograph note by Whitman, sending the books: “I to-day forward to you by mail a set of my Books – Two Vols. Please let me know if they reach you safely. Another set, same Vols. Will be sent you soon.” Leaves of Grass is today recognized as “America’s second Declaration of Independence” (Bloom) and greatest work of 19th-century poetry, but in his time Whitman struggled to achieve wide recognition. By the 1870s Whitman was impoverished. William Michael Rossetti issued in England a circular describing Whitman’s plight and inviting readers to purchase the new self-published editions of Leaves of Grass and Two Rivulets. Whitman thanked Rossetti, noting that “by far the most satisfaction to me (and I think it can be done, and believe it will be) will be to live, as long as possible, on the sales, by myself, of my own works ” Whitman later recalled, “Anything like unmitigated acceptance of my ‘Leaves of Grass’ book, and heart-felt response to it, in a popular however faint degree, bubbled forth as a fresh spring from the ground in England in 1876. [I had] some home customers, for them, but mostly from the British Islands. I was seriously paralyzed from the Secession war, poor, in debt, was expecting death Curiously, the sale abroad proved prompt, and what one might call copious: the names came in lists and the money with them, by foreign mail. The price was $10 a set. Both the cash and the emotional cheer were deep medicines; many paid double or treble price (Tennyson and Ruskin did) these blessed gales from the British Islands probably (certainly) saved me. Here are some of the names, for I w’d like to preserve them ” Lushington’s name then appears on the list of purchasers. This is a splendid pair of books inscribed by Whitman documenting a crucial turning point in his life and reputation. Matched sets in original bindings are rare in the market. Leaves of Grass: BAL 21412 (one of 600 copies). Two Rivulets: BAL 21413 (one of 600 or 650 copies). Two volumes. Contemporary half sheep, marbled boards. Rubbed, Leaves rejointed and Two Rivulets rebacked preserving most of original spines and labels. Fine matching half leather cases tooled to match the original bindings. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Lahr, 10. XII. 1876.. 2 SS. Gr.-4to.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten zur Übersendung eines Gedichtes und mit einer längeren Auslassung über das Handwerk des Dichters: "[...] Lyrik kann ein Jurist aufbringen, besser als die Journalisten, die oft wähnen, Ihr Handwerk sei Dichterprofession. Ich glaube aber, es ist noch lähmender als der scharfe Umgang mit dem ganzen kunstsuchenden u. fliehenden Volke. Nur sollte doch Einer, der Schwingen an seinen Achseln fühlt, die besten Jahre der Kraft nicht in Aktenluft u. im Dintenhaus [!] verlieren. Man rechnet auf später, um Größeres zu vollführen; es geht aber nicht, wenn man den Beruf in Ehren halten will. Sehen Sie wohl zu! Reiche haben es darin gut, sie dichten aber nichts - oder selten genug. Eine anständige Stellung im Leben einzunehmen, hält einen wackeren Poesie-Menschen vom zeitraubenden und zweifelhaften Journalismus ab, er geht in den Staatsdienst. Ob er wieder loskommt? Es muß Einer wohl - ich rede nicht von ihnen, der Sie vielleicht glücklichst situirt sind - bei Zeiten einen Roman schreiben oder ein Lustspiel (Letzteres erstrebe ich schon lange) - um sich die Freiheit zu schaffen, dann kann er der Poesie leben. Aber auch das ist vielleicht Täuschung. Die fruchtbaren Schriftsteller schreiben doch am Ende bloß zwei bis drei gute Werke. Ob sie davon leben können? Sie geben darum Fabrikwaare. Nomina sunt odiosa [...]". - Der Sohn des badischen Innenministers Ludwig Friedrich Eichrodt (1789-1844) war im Justizdienst tätig und trat seit 1849 auch als Schriftsteller hervor. Gemeinsam mit Adolf Kußmaul (1822-1902) veröffentlichte er 1853 die in den "Fliegenden Blättern" vorabgedruckten "Gedichte in allerlei Humoren", worin "die mißglückte Aneignung bürgerlicher Welt- und Kultursicht durch die unteren Schichten" parodiert und "mit der Gestalt Gottlieb Biedermaiers einer ganzen Epoche" ein Name gegeben wurde (DBE). Neben Satirischem schrieb Eichrodt auch Dramen, Libretti und Gedichte ernsten Inhalts. Vgl. auch Kosch I, 423. - Die Ränder mit Resten von Verschlußmarken.

        Notes of a Voyage from New South Wales to the North Coast of Australia

      Glasgow: privately printed, n.d. but, 1876. Octavo, photographic frontispiece, eight lithograph plates and four folding lithograph maps and another map in the text; headband a little frayed, very good overall in original green cloth, bookplate of Rodney Davidson. A very scarce book, the only public account of an important expedition to Arnhem Land in what is now the Northern Territory. With a photographic portrait frontispiece of Napier himself.In 1867 Francis Napier joined the South Australian Government expedition under Captain Francis Cadell to the north coast of the state (now the Northern Territory) searching for suitable sites for settlement. Cadell had a long and swashbuckling career in exploration and trading: he had earlier won the South Australian prize for successfully navigating the Murray in a steam-powered vessel, had been involved in the Maori Wars, and in the 1870s was a whaler and trader in Fiji and neighbouring islands. 'Early in 1867 he was appointed by the South Australian government to lead an expedition to the Northern Territory to choose a site for the capital and an area for agricultural settlement. He examined the Liverpool River, went up the Roper River in a small steamer and visited Port Darwin, Anson Bay and the Victoria River. He spent most of the year in thorough investigation, but the instructions on which he acted were misdirected.' (ADB) His own report, published in the South Australian Parliamentary Papers for 1867, was openly criticised at the time.As a result, Napier's "Notes" were the only public account of the expedition and are an important document of the early contact and charting of the region. It was compiled from Napier's journal by his family and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875.

        General Karte von Central Europa, bzw. der österr. ung. Monarchie, Maßstab 1:300.000 in 192 Blatt. Herausgegeben vom k. und k. militärischen geografischen Institute in Wien.

      12 Bände. 52 x 45 cm. Auf Leinwand aufgezogen. OHln. - Schuber. - Durchgehend etwas berieben und bestossen. Schuber tlw. an den Gelenken minimal eingerissen. Innen tls. etwas stockfleckig. Die Karten rückseitig tls. etwas angerändert. Insgesamt jedoch guter und ordentlicher Gesamtzustand. Seltene vollständige Ausgabe dieser Erstveröffentlichung. Die Karten, mit dem Mittelpunkt östlich von Wien, reichen im Westen bis Poitiers, im Norden bis Kopenhagen, im Osten bis Odessa und im Süden bis Rom, einschliesslich in die Regionen Griechenlands und Türkei. Durch die vergrößerte Darstellung gegenüber der Schedaschen Karte galt die Arbeit am Ende in den Punkten Übersicht und Klarheit dieser als etwas unterlegen. Das Werk wurde 1876 vollendet und, obwohl unermüdlich verbessert, danach allmählich aus dem Verkehr gezogen. Die spätere kleine Ergänzung bzw. Erweiterung ab 1877 umfasste daher nur wenige Blätter, z.B. die Balkanhalbinsel. Am Ende zählte das Werk im Umfang 207 Blatt. - Folgende Karten in den Bänden: I. Band A.1. Manchester. - B.2.

Octavo (8" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's green pebbled blind stamped ruled cloth with gilt lettering to cover. Signed by J W Rimington-Wilson. (Betts: 25-10, (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5201) First edition.The third United States Chess Congress was held in the city of Chicago, Illinois from July 7th to the 16th, 1874. Eight American chess masters and players participated in the "double rounds" master event by paying an entry fee of $20. The participants were previous US Congress winner George Henry Mackenzie, previous US Congress participants Frederic Elder, Henry Hosmer, Max Judd, Hiram Kennicott, and Frederick Perrin, as well as Frederick Bock and James Adams Congdon. The time control was fifteen moves every hour and for the first time in an organized US tournament draws were not required to be replayed. Elder and Kennicott both had to withdraw before their games could be completed, however the games played, their scores, and subsequent standings were included at the final. Games decided by forfeit have been omitted from this collection. As with many tournaments and events from the 19th century, no official organization of rounds or scheduling was in place. Mackenzie won his second consecutive American Chess Congress as well as the $225 grand prize by finishing clear first with +10 1/2, yet just half a point of second place Hosmer. Judd was a clear third with +7. Trailing the field were Bock (+5 1/2), Elder (+3 1/2), Perrin (+2), Congdon (+1 1/2) and Kennicott (0). This book is the rarest of the six american chess congress.James Wilson Rimington-Wilson (1822-1877) was one of the great collectors of books about chess, as well as books about other games and sports. Rimington-Wilson was born, lived, and died at Broomhead Hall, Yorkshire, England. He was a strong amateur chess player and records of some of his games survive, including a victory over Wilhelm Steinitz, the first official world champion of chess. Rimington-Wilson developed an extensive gaming library, which was maintained and perhaps added to by his son, Reginald Henry Rimington-Wilson (1852-1927). A number of documents survive describing the collection and its disposition. After the death of R. H., his son Captain H. E. Rimington-Wilson (1899-1971) ordered the sale of the library by auction at Sotheby's. The Quaritch firm that purchased the vast majority of the Rimington-Wilson lots at Sotheby's. They offered the books in two catalogs shortly after the sale. Condition:rimington-Wilson's signature to front paste down. Corners bumped, some occasional foxing else a very good to fine copy.

        Benedetta Ernestina Maria, Prinzessin von Modena. Nach einem Gemälde von Rosalba Carriera (1675-1757), Staatl. Kunstsammlungen Dresden.

      - Pastell und Aquarell, über Kohle, mit Deckweiß gehöht, auf beigem Zeichenkarton. 56,9:45,8 cm. Provenienz: Nachlaß Friedrich Schmöle. Die Malerin und Zeichnerin Mathilde Schmöle war seit 1876 mit dem Frankfurter Kaufmann Fr.Ph. Schmöle (1844-1924) verheiratet, der 1904 seinen Beruf aufgab, um sich ganz dem Malen und Reisen zu widmen. Nach der Vita ihres Mannes, der sich 1872 ein Landhaus in Kronberg erbauen ließ und dort in Kontakt trat mit den örtlichen Malern, könnte sie mit diesem gemeinsam bis 1905 Studienfahrten in die nähere Umgebung Frankfurts, nach Wetzlar und Braunfels sowie zwischen 1905 und 1913 nach Belgien und Holland, an die deutsche Nordseeküste, nach Sylt, Helgoland, in die Schweiz und nach Norditalien unternommen haben. Sie malte Landschaften, Porträts und Genrebilder. In engem brieflichem Kontakt stand sie mit Berta Riehl, Ehefrau des Kulturhistorikers und Novellisten W.H. Riehl, dessen Tochter Helene Riehl (geb. 1850) eine Landschaftsmalerin wurde. Laut einer überlieferten schriftlichen Anmerkung der Künstlerin war sie in Weimar eine Schülerin des Malers und Radierers F. Preller d. Ä. (1804-1878). Die vorwiegend als Porträtmalerin tätige Venezianerin Rosalba Carriera hatte die Technik der Pastellmalerei insofern weiterentwickelt, als sie Porträts schuf, die ganz dem Zeitgeschmack des Rokoko entsprachen und sich großer Beliebtheit erfreuten. Der nahezu unbekannten Mathilde Schmöle gelang es mit diesem Blatt auf hervorragende Weise Carrieras Darstellungsmittel nachzuempfinden, wie eine elegante, jedoch zugleich bescheidene Erscheinung und lebendige Ausdruckskraft der Gesichtszüge.
