        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Dresden, 4. XII. 1876.. 4 SS. 8vo.. An den Schauspieler Josef Lewinski (1835-1907): "Es ist eine starke Zumuthung die ich an Ihr zwar gewiß vortreffliches Gedächtniß richte, wenn ich voraussetze dass Sie sich meiner noch entsinnen: ich kam aber der Versuchung nicht widerstehen Ihnen zu erzählen, wie wohlthuend ich vor einigen Tagen an Sie erinnert worden bin, und würde mich sehr glücklich schätzen, wenn meine Mittheilung Ihnen gleichfalls nicht unwillkommen wäre. Ich hatte meinen kleinen Kreise, zu welchem Frau Marie Seebach, Herr von Heidler, Gesandschafts-Secretär der österreichischen Legation und einige Herren gehörten die vor Kurzem in Wien gewesen waren, eine eben fertig gewordene Übersetzung von Coppee's Luthier de Cremone vorgelesen und nach deren Beendigung geäußert ich wolle sie der hiesigen Theater Intendanz zur Aufführung vorschlagen. Da rief Frau Seebach, und alle genannten stimmten ihr bei: Lieber doch in Wien! Herr Lewinski würde den Filippo geben, wie kein anderer in Deutschland! Hier in Dresden ist keiner der die Rolle übernehmen könnte [ ]". Ich weiß das das Stück seinen Erfolg auf dem theatre francois ganz vorzüglich dem vortrefflichen Spiel des Schauspielers Coquelin verdankt, und weiß noch gewisser, dass Sie es eben so zur Geltung bringen würden, wie Jener [ ]". - Das Stück des französischen Schriftstellers Francois Edouard Joachim Coppee (1842-1908) war im selben Jahr erschienen; die erwähnte Übersetzung von Wolf Graf Baudissin erschien im Jahr darauf unter dem Titel 'Der Geigenmacher von Cremona'.

        North American Indians

      London: Chatto & Windus,, 1876. Illustrations of the manners, customs and condition of the North American Indians. With letters and notes, written during 8 years of travel and adventure among the wildest and most remarkable tribes existing. 2 volumes, large octavo. Original pictorial red cloth, with titles gilt to spine and front cover, pictorial decoration in gilt and black, pale yellow endpapers. With 360 coloured engravings from the author's original paintings and a folding map. Armorial bookplates to front pastedowns. Spines slightly faded, a little wear to extremities, upper hinges cracked but holding, tips bumped, repaired tear to front free endpaper of Vol. II occasional minor spotting; a very good set with bright plates. First edition to be printed in colour of Catlin's classic work. A young lawyer turned portraitist, Catlin set out in 1830 from his home in Pennsylvania to record on canvas the indigenous tribes of North America and their way of life. His eight years among the major tribes of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains resulted in his "Indian Gallery," an enormous collection of artefacts as well as more than four hundred paintings, including portraits and scenes of tribal life. The resultant book, first published with uncoloured plates in 1841, is "one of the most original, authentic and popular works on the subject" (Sabin). "The history and the customs of such a people," Catlin wrote, "preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life, shall prevent me from becoming their historian" (Hassrick).

        ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER

      Hartford The American Publishing Co. 1876 - First Edition, BAL’s early state "B" with illustration on verso of half-title and xvi foliated. Printed on wove paper. Both this and the first issue were released on the same day of publication in equal numbers. With one-hundred and sixty black and white illustrations of such memorable as Injun Joe, Aunt Polly, Becky Thatcher, and of course Tom Sawyer. 8vo, publisher’s original blue cloth elaborately decorated in gilt and black on the covers and spine. [i-xii], with [ix, x, xii mispaged xii, xiii, and xvi as called for], [17], 18-274 [-276], [4] ads pp. A very handsome copy in an unusually pleasing state of preservation, the text-block is very clean, and unusually well preserved, the binding with only very light evidence of edgewear or shelving, the rear inner hinge with very expert, essentially imperceptible closing at the join of the free-fly and pastedown. A very nice, bright and handsome copy of an iconic and cornerstone American literary work. FIRST EDITION IN THE ORIGINAL CLOTH. A HANDSOME AND UNCOMMONLY PLEASING COPY OF THIS GREAT AMERICAN LANDMARK, it is the first novel in which the hero is a boy and the boy is the hero throughout. TOM SAWYER is now thought to be, along with HUCKLEBERRY FINN, one of the great stepping stones to the modern American novel. It, like Whitman’s LEAVES OF GRASS and Melville’s MOBY DICK, typifies and describes the American spirit. It lies at that very special moment in history when America, having challenged its past sets off on the new adventures that will force it into the coming century and the great expansion of its democratic spirit. To this day, it remains a cornerstone of American literature. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        LETTRE AUTOGRAPHE SIGNEE

      - JACOB Max (Quimper 1876 – camp de Drancy 1944), écrivain et peintre français Lettre autographe signée à l’éditeur Pierre Aelberts. Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire Loiret 10 juin 1926 ; 2 pages in-8°. Max Jacob propose une œuvre innovante à son éditeur : «Lors de nos derniers rapports il a été question entre nous de manuscrits, d’autographes etc je viens de terminer un album d’une fantaisie peut être assez nouvelle dans mon œuvre et ailleurs. Cet album commencé sans prétentions se trouve avoir une cohésion dans la manière dont les « sujets » sont traités et dans les « sujets » même. Son aspect est celui d’un album de peintre à couverture de toile dans le format 28X21 que vous connaissez : il a l’aire à la fois neuf et usagé. J’y ai mis un titre « Allusions, illusions » « Album inédit, inéditable ». Ce que je voudrais en effet ce n’est pas une publication (qui couterait cher et rapporterait peu) mais que vous achetiez cet album que vous vendriez plus facilement que moi. Pour le vendre en effet je devrais me déranger beaucoup. J’en veux 1500 f ; il en vaut 3 ou 4000. (prix amateur). Il est peint plutôt à l’encre de chine qu’à la gouache, souvent dessiné seulement au crayon, à la plume. D’ailleurs il ne prétend pas au dessin et on y chercherait en vain un vrai bras ou une vraie jambe : ce dessin suit plutôt l’idée pas la plastique. Je vais vous citer quelques titres : -La chasse du caméléon depuis l’antiquité jusqu’à nos jours – L’inventeur du soutien gorge Clarks est une femme – L’anglaise mourante – Le Phonographe – Les Israélites au désert : conquête de la tortue par la torture – La chasse aux calebans dans les forêts du centre africain etc etc Il y a 38 dessins numérotés avec une table des matières et la défense sous peine de poursuites judiciaires d’en arracher un seul. Répondez-moi aussitôt que vous le pourrez ce vous désirez m’acheter cet album, mais ne me proposez pas de vous l’envoyer pour le montrer, je vous refuserais cette manière de procéder » Ces dessins sont réalisés à l’Abbaye Bénédictine de Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire où réside Max Jacob dans les années 20.

      London - Reeves and Turner, 1876 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A smart, finely bound edition of Braithwaite's famous satire. Bound in half leather with gilt lettering and decoration. A New Edition Carefully Revised by W. Carew Hazlitt. This text is in English and Latin. With A Life of the Author, A Bibliographical Introduction to the Itinerary and a Catalogue of his Works.

It is a remarkable example of the trend for topographical writings in the 1630s, but in its rollicking style it also prefigures some of the picaresque novels of the eighteenth century. (DNB)Joseph Haslewood, 1769 - 1833, was an English bibliographer and antiquary. William Carew Hazlitt, 1834 - 1913, was an Englishbibliographer. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is slight wear to the extremities, including slight rubbing andfading, prominent to the spine. Internally the pageshave very slight browning, with light spots throughout.

        A Memoir of Sir Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford

      sp; - London - MacMillan5vol.; 9.5 by 6; I: (xvi)680pp., II: 4934pp., III: (v)570pp., IV: 504pp., V: (vii)842pp., 1876 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Amagisterial biography of the pioneering thermodynamic physicist and inventor Benjamin Thompson, with a selection of his works. Thompson (1753-1814) was born in Massachussetts, then one of the Thirteen Colonies. Apprenticed to trade with a merchant (and excelling at his chosen career), he came into contact with the middle classes and sought to emulate their ways - including an interest in popular science. After several inconclusive experiments and a failed attempt to gain a scientificeducation under articles to a medical doctor, he had a stroke of luck in a marriage to a wealthy widow whose connections afforded him the privileges society had refused him on the basis of his hard work alone. By the time the American Revolution broke out, Thompson was comfortably a member of the elite (even holding an officer'scommission in the militia), and it followed easily that he served in the Loyalist forces and readily supplied General Gage with valuable information concerning the rebels. In conducting experiments with gunpowder, Thompson's workwith the military afforded him the option to conduct research into thermodynamics with hugely reduced constraints. By this token, he had established a name for himself as a man of science by the time he moved to Londn as the war drew to an end in the form of Loyalist and British defeat. Several years later, Thompson moved to Germany where a position as aide-de-camp to a Bavarian prince enabled him to move yet further up the rungs of scoiety. It was here that he conducted his most fruitful research; into the insulating properties of different substances, conductivity, and the nature of hear. When Thompson diedin 1814, he died a count of the Holy Roman empire and British knight; and his name and legacy live on in the form of a named crater on the Moon and a set of medals awarded by the Royal Society to this day - a thorough cirriculum vitae for aMassachussetts shopkeeper's apprentice. This lovely part-illustrated set bears an armorial vignette of the Royal Engineers Library to the front board of each volume, and is expressed to have been published with noticesby Rumford's daughter (who inherited his German title)and'in connection with an edition of Rumford's complete works by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Boston.

        Beitrage zur Kenntnis der Bildung, Befruchtung und Theilung des thierisches Eies

      1876. Hertwig, Wilhelm August Oscar (1849-1922). Beiträge zur Kenntnis der Bildung, Befruchtung und Theilung des thierischen Eies. In Morphologisches Jahrbuch 1 (1876): 347-434, plus 4 plates (nos. X-XIII). Whole volume, 8vo. iv, 816pp. 27 plates (9 folding). 225 x 150 mm. Quarter morocco, marbled boards, circa 1876. Light rubbing. Occasional foxing, paper a bit toned, otherwise very good. From the library of embryologist / comparative anatomist Robert Wiedersheim (1848-1923; see G-M 183 and 343), with his signature on the front endpaper and occasional marginal marks probably by him. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 495. Hertwig's Habilitationsschrift paper, based on his study of fertilization in sea urchins, established the fact that fertilization consists of the union of the nuclei of a male and a female sex cell, and that only one spermatozoon is required to fertilize an egg. This latter finding had important implications for the study of heredity. Hertwig's paper marks an important conceptual advance, uniting the process of fertilization and the transfer of hereditary material with the nuclear theory of sexual reproduction. This copy is from the library of Robert Wiedersheim, best known for his role in establishing comparative anatomy as a discipline, and for his famous textbook on the subject (Vergleiche Anatomie der Wirbeltiere, 1883).
