        Eastern Persia An Account Of The Journeys Of The Persian Boundary Commission 1870-71-72

      London: Macmillan & Co.,, 1876. Vol. I. The Geography with Narratives by Majors St .John, Lovett and Euan Smith and an Introduction by Major-General Sir Frederic John Goldsmid. Published By Authority of the Government of India. Vol. II. The Zoology And Geology By W.T. Blanford. 2 volumes, octavo (220 × 148 mm). Recent half calf by Trevor Lloyd, red and green contrast labels, flat bands with single rule, double fillet panels to the compartments, arabesque corner-pieces, central lozenge tool, marbled sides, top edge gilt. Volume I with steel-engraved frontispiece and one chromolithographic plate, 3 folding coloured maps, illustration and genealogical tables to the text; volume II, hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece, heightened with gum arabic, printed by Mintern Bros. after drawings by Keulemans and 17 other similar plates, birds and mammals, together with 10 other uncoloured plates of reptiles after G.H. Ford, illustrations to the text, folding coloured map. A narrow tidemark of hygroscopic damping at the head of the frontispiece of volume II, image unaffected, light browning to the text and plates in general, but overall a clean set, handsomely bound. First edition. Highly important account of the region compiled from the records kept by the members of the Commission sent to establish the delimitation of the disputed border between Persia and Baluchistan. Goldsmid, the commissioner, had established a reputation for himself as an officer of considerable intelligence and resource. While serving in the First Opium War (1840-1) as a soldier of the army of the East India Company, Goldsmid had begun studying oriental languages "for which he showed a marked faculty" (ODNB), he was subsequently involved in the settlement of the annexation of Sind; attached to the Turkish Contingent in the Crimea, "and during the [Indian] mutiny he distinguished himself in various dangerous missions." In 1861 "he was assigned to the Indo-European Telegraph project, the purpose of which was to construct a telegraph line from British India, along the coast of Persia and what is now Pakistan, then through central Persia and Asia Minor to connect with the European network at Constantinople" (Howgego), in 1865 succeeding Colonel Patrick Stewart, on his death, as director general. Having successfully negotiated the intricacies of the required treaties, he "personally superintended the construction of the telegraph line across the whole extent of Persia" leaving "a characteristically modest account of his adventures" (ODNB). When the government of India's attention was drawn to the "political revolutions in the lands of the immediate neighbours on the West" (Goldsmid's Introduction) his experience of the territory and superior negotiating skills made him the the obvious choice as boundary commissioner for the delimitation of the this disturbed borderland: "His award was eventually accepted by the shah's government. In the same year Goldsmid was entrusted with the even more delicate task of investigating the claims of Persia and Afghanistan to the province of Sistan. The arbitral award was published at Tehran on 19 August 1872; Persia was confirmed in the possession of Sistan, while a section of the Helmand was left in Afghan territory. The impartiality of the award satisfied neither party, but it had the desired effect of keeping the peace. Goldsmid was created a KCSI in 1871, and received the thanks of the government of India." A significant contributor to the geographical section was Major Oliver B. St. John, whose "maps of Persia and Persian Baluchistan …remained for decades the standard authority", and who also assisted W.T. Blanford in the zoological and geological portion of the work, a survey commended by Britannica for its "great care and minuteness." An excellent set of this model regional survey.

        Portrait of Oscar Wilde

      n.p., nd. (OSCAR WILDE) Photo gravure on paper; paper 11-3/4 x 9 inches, plate 5-3/4 x 4 inches. . Matted and Framed . Hermann Struck (1876-1944)is recognized for his extensive landscapes and portraits of noted personalities in early 20th century Europe, including Herzl, Ibsen, Nietzsche, Freud, Einstein, Rutenberg et al. He was born into an Orthodox Berlin family and subsequently studied at the Berlin Academy under Max Koner and Hans Meyer. He joined the Zionist movement at an early age and in 1903, after several study trips throughout Europe, he visited Palestine, and on his way back to Germany stopped in Vienna, where he was introduced to Herzl. It was this meeting that inspired the famous portrait etching of the Zionist leader. During World War I Struck served with the German Army in Lithuania, where he came in contact with Eastern European Jews and embraced their way of life. In 1923 he returned to Palestine and settled in Haifa. By now a master of the craft of etching, Struck taught graphic techniques to such fellow artists as Chagall, Liebermann, Israels, Corinth, Ury and Budko. His book, Die Kunst des Radierens (1923), a popular guide book for artists and connoisseurs, provides both technical explanations and practical instruction. Struck excelled as a portraitist. He also recorded landscapes, Jewish and Arab types and scenes from the Jewish diaspora. He spent time in England, and became a member of the London Societ of Painters, Etchers and Engravers

      1876 - Diary of J. R. Kazallon, Passenger. Translated from the French by Ellen Frewer. Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1876. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, beveled. First American Illustrated Edition, actually printed in London. In mid-1875 Osgood published the first edition in English, unillustrated, as a little volume in their "Saunterer's Series." In November 1875, Sampson Low published the first illustrated edition in London. Then in January 1876, Osgood issued some of the British sheets in their own binding, constituting the first American illustrated edition -- as here. In March 1876 -- just two months later -- Osgood's financial situation forced him to sell at auction the plates and unsold copies of the five Verne titles he had published; these were bought by one Albert Mason, who in turn sold them to Porter & Coates of Philadelphia -- who would then proceed to use the plates to publish editions of their own. (Porter & Coates also issued some copies with the Osgood 1876 title page, but with "Porter & Coates" at the foot of the spine.) As with the British edition, the volume also includes the early Verne tale "Martin Paz," though it is not mentioned on the binding nor on the title page.~This copy is in green cloth, and the gilt vignette on the front cover is centered (no known priority). It is a bright, near-fine copy (fine except for minor rubbing at the extremities). Apparently because of Osgood's then-pending doom, this is today a scarce book. Taves & Michaluk V014; Myers 47.

        Autograph Letter, Signed ("F. E. Spinner") to Angling author George Dawson, dated Jacksonville, Florida, Feby. 19, 1876, discussing Dawson's book of "fish letters" (Pleasures of Angling - [1876]), recounting a fish tale, and praising Florida winters

      Jacksonville, Florida, february 19, 1876 - "Spinner, a strong nationalist, was an important adviser to Chase on matters such as the circulation of greenbacks (which bore Spinner's distinctive, hard-to-duplicate signature) and the creation of a national banking system. - Needing large numbers of reliable employees not subject to military service, he was the first governmental administrator to turn to women. He vigorously defended their employment against critics, hired over one hundred, paid them well by the standards of the time, and insisted on their continued employment after the war. - When a new secretary of the treasury in 1875 assumed control over the appointment of clerks, however, Spinner feared that dishonest people might be hired and he would be held responsible. He resigned and moved to Jacksonville, Florida, where he enjoyed a vigorous outdoor life until his death in that city." (ANB) Francis E. Spinner (1802-1890) served as Treasurer of the United States under Presidents Lincoln, Johnson, and Grant. In the angling world, he is notable as the recipient of letters from Oliver Gibbs, published as Lake Pepin Fish-Chowder (1869). In retirement in Florida, he writes to George Dawson, editor of the Albany Evening Journal and a noted American angling author, whose Pleasures of Angling with Rod and Reel (1876) is the first American book devoted to fly fishing. Spinner writes, "I am so glad to learn that you have been persuaded to publish your fish letters, in book form - when yours comes out, it will be read with pleasure." He then goes on to describe fishing for trout on McGirt's Creek, a tributary of the St. Johns River, and catching a cat fish of 18- 1/2 pounds "on one of Chapman's 'No. 4 Minnow bait' - I mention this, because I cannot learn from anyone, that a cat fish was ever known before to strike at artificial bait." Spinner concludes lyrically, "The orange, and other of the citrus family, are in bloom now - Whoever, at the North, that can afford to, and who has nothing else to do, and that does not spend his winters in this Elysium, is to be pitied. Do come." An excellent letter with outstanding content (FLORIDA) 12mo. 4 pp., pen and ink on a single folded sheet. Old folds. Fine [Attributes: Soft Cover]

He too has enlarged the body of Shelley&#146;s poetry (Mr. Forman&#146;s most notable addition is the second part of &#145;The Daemon of the World&#146;, which he printed privately in 1876, and included in his Library Edition of the &#145;Poetical Works&#146; published in the same year but, important as his editions undoubtedly are, it may safely be affirmed that his services in this direction constitute the least part of what we owe him. He has vindicated the authenticity of the text in many places, while in many others he has succeeded, with the aid of manuscripts, in restoring it. His untiring industry in research, his wide bibliographical knowledge and experience, above all, his accuracy, as invariable as it is minute, have combined to make him, in the words of Professor Dowden, &#145;our chief living authority on all that relates to Shelley&#146;s writings.&#146; His name stands securely linked for all time to Shelley&#146;s by a long series of notable words, including three successive editions (1876, 1882, 1892) of the Poems, an edition of the Prose Remains, as well as many minor publications&#151;a Bibliography ("The Shelley Library", 1886) and several Facsimile Reprints of the early issues, edited for the Shelley Society" (Preface to the Oxford Edition of The Complete Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley, edited by Thomas Hutchinson [1914]).Granniss 89.

        Original United States Flag, issued after the admission of the State of Colorado

      The 38th state joined the union on August 1, 1876 (thereafter often called the ?Centennial State?). This flag measures approximately 17 x 23 1/2?, printed on what appears to be silk; some stains, minor fading and fraying; very good. Probably an early example: 34 of the stars are arranged on the blue background in a circle, an additional star in each corner. The official flag adopted on July 4th, 1877 and in use for the next 13 years arranged the representative stars in horizontal rows of 8 stars/ 7 stars/ 8 stars/ 7 stars/ 8 stars; with the standard red and white stripes representing the 13 original states.

        Komponist (1813-1883). Eigenh. Brief mit U. Bayreuth, 26. V. 1876. Gr.-8°. 2 S. auf Doppelblatt.

      . . An den Vorsitzenden des Bayreuther Wagner-Vereins über die Verteilung von Patronatsscheinen bzw. Freikarten nicht durch das Los, sondern nach Gesichtspunkten des künstlerischen Interesses an der geplanten Uraufführung seines Bühnenfestspiels "Der Ring des Nibelungen" am 13. August 1876. - // - Richard Wagner hat (wie es das Richard-Wagner-Museum es zur Unterstützung seiner Neugestaltung heute noch macht) Patronat-Scheine zur Finanzierung seines Traums vom "Ring" herausgegeben. Richard Wagner Vereine haben diese erworben, um die Uraufführung und den Bau des eigens dafür errichteten Bayreuther Festspielhauses zu unterstützen. - // - Unser Brief beweist, wie sehr sich Wagner auch um die Fragen der Kartenvergabe im künstlerischen Sinn bemühte, obwohl er im Mai schon mitten in den Proben zum "Ring" steckte. Die letzten Seiten der Partitur der Götterdämmerung waren am 9. Mai 1876 in der Schottschen Offizin fertig geworden und am 15. Mai wurde im Verwaltungsrat über die Vergabe von Freiplätzen entschieden, worauf sich unser Brief bezieht. (Glasenapp: Das Leben Richard Wagners). - // - "Hochgeehrter Herr! / Ich erfahre, dass die Meinung, in welcher ich dem geehrten hiesigen Wagner-Vereine eine Anzahl von Freiplätzen zu den Aufführungen meiner Bühnenfestspiele zur Verfügung stellte, in Folge einer Abstimmung durchaus misverständlich [sic!] aufgefasst worden ist. Von Anfang an hielt ich mich dazu autorisirt [sic!], im Namen meiner Patrone solchen Sachverständigen und Kunstangehörigen, deren Mittel nicht zur Erwerbung von Patronatsantheilen ausreichen, einen vollkommen freien Zutritt zu gewähren. Da die Zahl dieser [von] mir reservirten Freiplätze stark herabgesetzt werden musste, bot ich die Verfügung darüber zunächst den Vorständen von Vereinen an, in der ganz bestimmten Absicht, sie für solche Mitglieder derselben zu verwenden, welche, ob[g]leich besonders befähigt zur genussreichen Anwohnung jener Aufführungen, durch die Ungunst des Loses von einem Patronatantheil ausgeschlossen blieben. Diese, in einzelnen [weiter S. 2] Fällen sehr empfindliche Ungerechtigkeit des Zufalles auszugleichen, sollte es nun, nach meinem Dafürhalten, den Herren Vorstehern überlassen sein, diejenigen, welche eben am meisten Interesse für die zu erwartende künstlerische Leistung voraussetzen liessen, mir vorzuschlagen, oder auch in dem gleichen Sinne bei der eigenen Vertheilung zu verfahren. Wogegen nun die ganze Angelegenheit nochmals dem blinden Zufalle einer Verlosung zu überliefern, meine Intention geradesweges verhöhnt, indem wiederum nur ein Geldgewinn-Interesse, nicht aber ein Kunst-Interesse dabei gewahrt wurde. Ich muss wünschen, dass Ihnen, hochgeehrter Herr, es noch möglich werde, meiner hiermit deutlich wiederholt ausgesprochenen Ansicht auch bei dem sehr geehrten hiesigen Wagner-Vereine, dessen Wirksamkeit ich andererseits so sehr verpflichtet bin, Geltung zu verschaffen. // Mit grösster Hochachtung // Ihr / ergebenster / Richard Wagner // Bayreuth, / 26 Mai 1876." - Bugfalteneinrisse am Rand fachmännisch repariert, sonst sehr gut erhalten. - Noch unveröffentlicht.

Schläfli lieferte aber auch bedeutende Beiträge zu Integraldarstellungen von Bessel- und Gamma-Funktionen. "Schläfli's geometric and arithmetical studies were equaled in significance by his work in function theory... Schläfli gave the integral representation of the Bessel function Jn(z) for arbitrary n, even where n is not integral" (DSB). - Der Nachlass des Mathematikers, Botanikers und Indologen ist in Bern erhalten, Manuskripte von seiner charaktervollen Hand sind daher selten. - Schwache Faltspuren und kleine Randeinrisse, sonst sehr gut erhalten. - DSB 12, 172; NDB 23, 20 Convergenz einer arbiträren Function

Overall an excellent copy. ~ First edition, very rare in the original printed wrappers. Michel Chevalier (1806-1879) a French economist. In 1840 he was appointed professor of political economy at the College de France and subsequently became one of the most eminent economists of his time and a great influence on the economic policies of France. He negotiated and successfully concluded the French-English commercial agreement in 1860, followed by similar treaties with other countries. He predicted, as early as 1857, the decline in the value of gold. Henri Cernuschi (1821-1896), Italian politician and economist. Cernuschi is best known for his publications on financial questions, more especially bimetallism.
