An einen Bibliothekar (Karl Halm?): "Bei der Bearbeitung des Artikels Schubert für mein biographisches Lexikon' finde im Verzeichnisse der Schubertschen Autographen, auch Ihren werthen Namen und dabei: der zürnende Barde' von Franz Bruchmann [ ]" (12.III.1876). Am 2.I.1888 schreibt Wurzbach an einen namentlich nicht genannten Professor: "Wie Sie lieber Herr Professor zu dem Gedanken [ ] kommen, daß Sie, weil ich schweige einen persönlich ungünstigen Eindruck auf mich gemacht haben müßen, ist mir so wenig klar, wie die Ursache warum Russland a tout prix Krieg führen will. Als Sie damals im Frühling bei uns waren und wir einen heitren Tag erlebten, wartete ich einige Tage auf ein Lebenszeichen von Ihnen und da ein solches nicht kam, schrieb ich einen 6 oder 8 Seiten langen Brief an Sie noch ganz unter dem Eindruck des Wohlbehagens den Sie auf mich und meine bessere Haelfte gemacht [ ]". Brief an einen Herrn Wimmer am 9.III.1888: "Am 5. Jänner 1876 kam in der Komischen Oper in Wien zum 1. Male die 3actige komische Operette Fanfarullo' Text und Musik von Joseph Wirth zur Aufführung. Wissen Sie vielleicht [ ] etwas näheres über diesen Wirth zu sagen'? [ ]". "Sie haben mir wohl seiner Zeit ein Feuilleton von Ludwig Wothe Der Gespenstige Hausherr von Ober St. Veit gesendet, aber über seine künstlerisches Thun [ ] enthält dasselbe keine Zeyle [ ]" (18.XII.1888). - Der in Laibach geborene Schriftsteller trat vor Abschluß seines Jusstudiums in den Militärdienst, der ihn u. a. nach Lemberg führte, wo er 1843 als erster aktiver österreichischer Offizier promovierte. Im Jahr darauf verließ er die Armee, wurde Skriptor an der Lemberger Universitätsbibliothek, 1849 Vorstand der Administrativen Bibliothek des Innenministeriums in Wien und anschließend Ministerialsekretär im Staatsministerium. Nach seiner Erhebung in den Ritterstand 1874 ging er in Pension und lebte fortan als wissenschaftlicher Schriftsteller in Berchtesgaden. Sein zwei Jahre vor seinem Tod abgeschlossenes Lebenswerk ist das "Biographische Lexikon des Kaiserthums Österreich" (60 Bde., 1855-91). Vgl. Kosch IV, 3477 und Öst. Lex. II, 666.

        THE HAND OF ETHELBERTA

      Henry Holt 1876 - Hardy, Thomas. THE HAND OF ETHELBERTA. NY: Henry Holt & Company, 1876. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. A NEAR FINE copy in the primary publisher's binding of cream cloth (with endpaper ads dated May 20th, 1876, the same month as publication of Hardy's two-volume London first edition). Although there is light foxing to the upper cover, this example is virtually unworn and without any of the spine toning which is almost always found on these fragile American pale cream-colored bindings. THE HAND OF ETHELBERTA, Hardy's fifth novel has rarely been accepted as anything more than a minor achievement. Yet it is the bridge between his masterpieces FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD and THE RETURN OF THE NATIVE. Ethelberta's "problem" has always been that she was Hardy's attempt to break free of his Wessex roots and create a more urban "society" protagonist. His writing in this novel is still brilliant but the setting and plot are such that this brilliance is apparently not so easily seen. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [AUTOGRAPH NOTE, SIGNED, FROM PIM TO FLORA BRABY, TRANSMITTING PHOTOGRAPHS TO HER FOR HER ALBUM]

      [London]: Jan. 1, 1876.. [1]p. Typical mailing folds, else near fine. Bedford Clapperton Tervelyan Pim served in the Royal Navy, as a barrister, an author, and most importantly, as an Arctic explorer. He was the first man to successfully travel by ship from the eastern side of the Northwest Passage to the western side. He also led an expedition in search of Sir John Franklin in 1850, and served under Edward Belcher in the western division of his 1852 Arctic expedition. In this short autograph note, signed, Pim writes to a friend who had likely asked for photographs of him for her scrapbook or album. He complies, as such: "My dear young friend Flora Braby I have much pleasure in sending you three or four Photographs for your album and one of myself in wig and gown which I have no doubt will amuse you - with kind regards to Papa and Mama I am Yours Sincerely Bedford Pim."

Octavo. First Edition. Two years of issues collected together in one volume. In Writer's Diary, Dostoevsky published many of his short works of fiction and non-fiction. This copy lacks the title pages indicated in the Kilgour collection, but those seem to have been added in the subsequent year given the date is for the year after the issues (for example, the title page in the Kilgour collection for the 12 issues of 1876 entries is dated 1877). Thus, these seem to be originally collected at the time of publication, and immediately bound together. All 12 issues in first state for both years (24 issues total). Kilgour 284 & 285. CONDITION: Contemporary quarter leather with faded gilt to spine, marbled boards. Much wear to boards and extremities, pages browned and spotted throughout. Faint stamps to first and last pages.

        The geographical distribution of animals. 2 vols.

      Macmillan, London 1876 - Wallace, Alfred Russel (1823-1913). The geographical distribution of animals. With a study of the relations of living and extinct faunas as elucidating the past changes of the earth's surface. 2 vols. xxi, [3], 503; viii, [4], 607pp. 7 colored maps (some folding) and 20 plates. London: Macmillan and Co., 1876. 225 x 150 mm. Original leather-grain green cloth stamped in gilt and black,hinges of Vol. I crudely repaired, light wear. Light foxing, marginal tears in one or two folding maps, but a good set. Bookplate. First Edition of the foundation work of evolutionary zoogeography. "Wallace’s investigations made it quite clear that zoogeography should be based on a wide range of geographical and geological facts interpreted by evolutionary doctrines. He was also one of the few early zoogeographers to rely on a statistical approach. The culmination of Wallace’s approach was achieved in his monumental two-volume The Geographical Distribution of Animals (1876). Relying on data he had collected on families and genera of terrestrial vertebrates, Wallace established evolutionary zoogeography on its modern foundation. While an enormous amount of subsequent data has improved our knowledge and determination of the zoogeographical provinces, few, if any, subsequent works have been more important to the subject . . . Wallace’s evolutionary approach to zoogeography provided a rock-solid factual basis for evolutionary biology . . . His work actually transformed the subject and became the standard authority for many years" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Two binding variants have been noted (no priority established): one in leather-grain cloth as above, with the initial M of the spine imprint "Macmillan & Co." taller than the rest of the letters; and another in fine-diaper green cloth with all the letters of the spine imprint of uniform height.

        A Treatise on Gout and Rheumatic Gout (Rheumatoid Arthritis).

      London, Longmans, Green & Co., 1876.. Third Edition - Thoroughly Revised and Enlarged. 8°. XVI, 584, 24 pages. Original Hardcover (blindstamped cloth with gilt lettering on spine). Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Provenance: As an inscription on the endpaper reads, this rare edition comes from the library of Alfred Baring Garrod's son Sir Archibald Edward Garrod (1857-1936). The inscription reads: "Prof. O. Folin from George Graham - received from Sir A.E.Garrod". Very scarce publication !. Sir Alfred Baring Garrod FRS (3 May 1819 - 28 December 1907) was an English physician. Garrod was born in Ipswich, the son of Robert and Sarah (nee Ennew) Garrod. He initially apprenticed at Ipswich Hospital, and later moved to University College Hospital, where he earned his medical doctorate in 1843. Afterwards he was an assistant at West London Hospital and a physician at the Aldersgate Dispensary. In 1849, he was appointed full physician at University College Hospital, and in 1863 became a professor of materia medica and therapeutics at King's College Hospital. In 1874, he left the hospital to become an honorary Fellow and consultant physician to the college. In 1848, Garrod had discovered an abnormal increase of uric acid in the blood of patients with gout, and was the first to propose lithium as a remedy for the disorder. He recommended lithium as a treatment for mental illness, and hypothesized that gout could be a cause of mood disorders such as mania and depression. He is also credited for coining the term "rheumatoid arthritis". In 1858, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1860, he was elected president of the Medical Society of London. In 1887 he was knighted as "Sir Alfred Baring Garrod", and in 1890 was appointed "Physician Extraordinary" to Queen Victoria. On his death in 1907 he was buried in the Great Northern cemetery, Southgate, Middlesex. He had married Elizabeth Ann Colchester of Ipswich; they had six children. Two of his sons were zoologist Alfred Henry Garrod (1846-1879) and physician Archibald Edward Garrod (1857-1936). (Wikipedia) ____________________________ Sir Archibald Edward Garrod, KCMG, FRS[1] (25 November 1857 - 28 March 1936) was an English physician who pioneered the field of inborn errors of metabolism. He also discovered alkaptonuria, understanding its inheritance. He served as Regius Professor of Medicine at the University of Oxford from 1920 to 1927. (Wikipedia)

        REMINISCENCES OF THE TEXAS REPUBLIC. ANNUAL ADDRESS DELIVERED BEFORE THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF GALVESTON.

      Galveston, Tx.: Published by the Society, 1876. - 82pp. Lacks preliminary limitation leaf. Recent half morocco. Scattered pencil annotations. Very good. One of 100 copies of the rare first printing of Ashbel Smith's important memoir of Texas diplomacy during the Republic period. "Written by one of the wisest men of early Texas, this is the most astute first-hand account of diplomatic activities leading to annexation. No one, with the exception of Sam Houston and Anson Jones, was more intimately involved in the process of acquiring international recognition of the Republic of Texas and bringing about annexation than Dr. Ashbel Smith.The text is personal but objective, a blended narrative of anecdote and analysis. Smith reviews the Texas border question, the various votes and movements for recognition and annexation in Texas and the United States, his activities in France and England, and the treaties which he negotiated" - Jenkins. Smith was born in Connecticut and educated at Yale, where he also received his medical degree. He became surgeon general of the Army of Texas in 1837, was appointed chargé d'affaires to England and France by Sam Houston, and later served as Texas Secretary of State. He provides a careful narrative of the course of Texas diplomacy from 1836 to 1845, covering shifts in mood regarding annexation in both the United States and in Texas, the Republic's relations with the U.S., European nations, and Mexico, and the activities of Texan leaders. "An able work by one of the really great men of the Republic" - Raines. Though reprinted several times, this is the true first edition of this vital firsthand report on the diplomatic activities of the Texas Republic. BASIC TEXAS BOOKS 186. HOWES S74, "aa."

This is a grouping of 16 orphan plates from the landmark series on Spanish architecture, "Monumentos arquitectónicos de España," published by the Imprenta de Fortanet y Calcografía Nacional, Madrid, and issued in 89 installments between 1876 [?] and 1886. The complete set is said to have contained 280 lithographed and engraved plates, including 58 chromolithographs, 12 tinted lithographs and numerous monochrome engraved plates, and included text in Spanish and French, in parallel columns, and with decorated chromolithographed initials. Note that there are NO text sheets in this grouping of 16 plates. The unbound title sheet reads "Monasterio de Fres del Val," with authorship attributed to Manuel de Assas, yet none of the plates corresponds to the title piece. Of the various Spanish provinces, six of the plates are from Madrid, four are from Toledo Province, two are from Badajoz Province, and one each is from Oviedo, Burgos, Granada and Valencia. The plates measure approximately 29.5" wide x 23.75" high. (75 x 60 cm.) The paper on which the engravings are pulled appears to be mould-made cream stock. Condition of the sheets ranges from Very Good Plus to Poor. Some plates with tears and/or loss at the edges, with varying degrees of foxing and soiling. Other plates almost free of demerits. At least four of the plates are suitable for framing in their existing state. 15 of the plates are in landscape orientation. As to the top margin of each sheet, a circular blindstamp with coat of arms and bearing the words, "Publicación de Monumentos arquitectónicos de España." Most prints in B&W, with at least one in sepia-tone. Among the buildings or architectural details depicted are: 1) Detalles de la fachada del norte, en el Real Alcázar, Toledo; 2) Planta de la iglesia y claustro procesional de San Juan de los Reyes, Toledo; 3) Palacio de los Ayalas, Toledo; 4) Corte longitudinal del claustro de S.

        Notes of a Voyage from New South Wales to the North Coast of Australia, from the Journal of the Late Francis Napier

      privately printed, circa, Glasgow 1876 - Octavo, photographic portrait frontispiece; with eight lithographic plates, four folding maps and a single engraved map integral to the pagination; original blue cloth with spare gilt ornament; a bit shaken, some maps creased, cloth rubbed, a good copy overall. Uncommon - the only public account of an important expedition to Arnhem Land in what is now the Northern Territory. The book features a mounted photographic portrait frontispiece of Napier himself, and has been inscribed and signed by the editor James R. Napier (the cousin of Francis Napier).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. The plates, drawn with lithographic crayon, were done by one of Napier's brother, and are signed "JMN" Ferguson, 13058. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
