        THE SURVIVORS OF THE CHANCELLOR

      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.

        Mécanisme de la physionomie humaine, ou analyse électro-physiologique de l'expression des passions.

(photographies sur papier albuminé), 3 fig. dans le texte (numérotées 1, 2 et 2 bis) ; il manque à notre exemplaire le portrait-frontispice ainsi que deux planches ; reliure en demi-basane brune de l'époque, dos à nerfs ; reliure très frottée mais solide ; quelques pâles rousseurs, quelques feuillets brunis (pp. 125-126, pp. 145-156 et pp. 193-196) ; sinon intérieur en très bon état Seconde édition, très rare, de cet ouvrage édité à compte d'auteur et recherché (à noter que les exemplaires complets de l'édition originale, qui a paru par livraisons en 1862-1863, sont fort rares). Le texte, fruit de 25 années de travail, est novateur et remarquable, tandis que l'atlas constitue une des premières et des plus importantes contributions à l'illustration médicale par la photographie. Chaque planche réunit 16 petites photographies de visages. Le nombre de planches varie selon les exemplaires (Il existe de rarissimes exemplaires de luxe comportant des planches d'agrandissement). Duchenne fut aidé par Adrien Tournachon "dans l'exécution de quelques clichés". Cet ouvrage, qui n'a pas été accueilli à sa juste valeur lors de sa parution, eut un retentissement considérable non seulement en neurosciences et en médecine, mais aussi dans le domaine des beaux-arts. A l'aide de la faradisation, Duchenne cherche à comprendre l'action propre de chaque muscle de la face, à "leur faire parler le langage des passions et des sentiments". Il s'attache dans cet ouvrage à établir une corrélation entre la contraction d'un muscle ou dun groupe musculaire déterminé et un type d'expression (douleur, tritesse, mépris, .). Notre exemplaire est bien complet des trois parties de texte : introduction, partie scientifique et partie esthétique, mais est malheureusement incomplet du portrait-frontispice et de deux planches.

        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]

        Poetical Works, The [And] The Prose Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley

      London: Reeves and Turner, 1876. - The Best Edition of the Poetical and Prose Works of Shelley,in a Superb Cosway-Style Binding by Bayntun (Rivière)[COSWAY-STYLE BINDING]. SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe. The Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley. Edited by Harry Buxton Forman. In Four Volumes. London: Reeves and Turner, 1876-1877. [Together with:] SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe. The Prose Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley. Edited by Harry Buxton Forman. In Four Volumes. London: Reeves and Turner, 1880.First edition edited by H. Buxton Forman. Together eight octavo volumes (8 7/16 x 5 3/8 inches; 214 x 136 mm.). Frontispieces and plates.Uniformly bound by Bayntun (Rivière) of Bath (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in) in mid twentieth-century dark brown crushed levant morocco. Covers with gilt triple fillet border, spines decoratively ruled and lettered in gilt in compartments with five raised bands, board edges with gilt-dotted rule, gilt inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. A spectacular set.Volume I of The Poetical Works is set with a fine oval portrait miniature (3 3/16 x 2 7/16 inches; 81 x 62 mm.) on ivory under glass of Shelley, surrounded by an inner oval band of onlaid russet morocco within single gilt fillets and an outer decorative intertwining gilt border which is set with sixteen semi-precious stones. A superb example. From the library of William A. Foyle , with his bookplate on front pastedown."The first edition [of The Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley] appeared in 1876-7, and in 1880 the Prose Works also were published Mr. Forman. In the same year (1880) the eight volumes were issued under a collective title, The Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley in Verse and Prose, etc." (Granniss)."It would be difficult indeed to over-estimate the gains which have accrued to the lovers of Shelley from the strenuous labours of Mr. Harry Buxton Forman, C.B. 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

        Head of Yellowstone River

      L. Prang and Co, Boston 1876 - Chromolithograph, on original card mount. Image size: 9 1/2 x 13 1/2 inches. Framed. Provenance: Zaplin Lampert Gallery (label on verso of frame). Thomas Moran's finest published work and a masterpiece of American chromolithography. This stunning view is based on Thomas Moran's work during Ferdinand V. Hayden's 1871 expedition to northwestern Wyoming, the first survey of what would become Yellowstone National Park. During that summer, Moran laid the basis for some of his most famous works rendered in watercolor, oil and here in chromolithograph. This series of fifteen plates, published in a portfolio titled The Yellowstone National Park and the Mountain Regions of Portions of Idaho, Nevada, Colorado and Utah , were the first to adequately depict the spectacular scenery of Yellowstone, and have long been considered the most skillful and striking prints of the park. Indeed, these images helped define the American West for much of the public. Louis Prang was the greatest color-printer of his day, and he declared this work his masterpiece. At the time of its production in 1876, it was certainly the most elaborate and successful work of chromolithographic printing undertaken in the United States. Printed on card using numerous lithographic stones to give incredible depth of color, the intended result was to give the prints the appearance of the original paintings. A contemporary review in The Nation declared the prints to bear remarkable likeness to the original watercolors, "an accuracy which we do not think could have been surpassed in any country." The review continues by praising Moran's artistic sense, "the boldness and facility of the drawing are really impressive." Another reviewer termed the work "a genuine triumph of American graphic art." Moran himself praised Prang's efforts, writing to him in 1876: "It is in every respect a most sumptuous & magnificent work.It seems to me that Chromo-Lithography has, in your hands, attained perfection so skillfully have you reproduced every shade and tone of color of the originals." The work's publication marked "the beginning of [Prang's] dominance of the finest American chromolithographic work in the last quarter of the century" (Reese). Bennett concurs, writing, the book is "marvelously reproduced.hand work could never give the effect of perspective and distance achieved in the towering scenes reproduced here." McClinton declares Prang's work to be a "monument of American bookmaking" and the "prints have never been surpassed as examples of the best American chromolithography.unexcelled among illustrations of the Far West." Kinsey aptly sums up Moran's efforts: "Had he done nothing else, Moran would be remembered for this series, which remains a landmark in publishing history."

        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.
