Well versed in traditional Indian music from his youth, he became a patron of Bengali and Hindu music but also studied Western music and became an internationally known musicologist.In very good condition, with only occasional and mostly marginal light foxing or faint water stains. The binding with only minor wear, mostly at the extremities, but otherwise very good.

      Hi, I recently purchases a rebind in fabulous condition, inside the binding were 1876 through to 1878 but it was in such good condition I decided to split them out and had facsimile covers added to them hence, and to keep them together ... This lot is a set of three Original Wisdens 1876 , 1877 and 1878 , Paperbacks with facsimile spines and covers in very good condition. The books are in very good condition, the pages are very clean and pretty much unmarked. There is a touch of foxing to the 1877 but it is only slight and to the odd page, the other two have minimal foxing. Although it used to be rebound there is not much trimming with nice margins. A fabulous set of 3 early Wisdens at a great price.

        Canada's 3rd Prime Minister, John Joseph Caldwell Abbott Letter signed

      Montreal: J.C.C. Abbott, 1876. 1st Edition. No binding. Near Fine. ABBOTT, FIRST CANADIAN BORN PRIME MINISTER, SIGNED LETTERS ARE SCARCE TO MARKET. 8 x 10 inches, was folded now flat. Sir John Joseph Caldwell Abbott, 1821-1893, was the third Prime Minister of Canada, 1891-1892. Letter signed, "J.J.C. Abbott," dated Montreal, Sep. 28th, 1876, on the letterhead of Abbott's law firm "Abbott, Tait, Wotherspoon & Abbott," and text of letter written in clerk's hand. Addressed to Henry Archibald. 16 lines on one sheet, near fine condition. Abbott writes clarifying a legal position regarding the estate of one of the children of the late Judge Gale: "Dear Sir / After further consideration / I am unable to change the opinion / which I prepared for you in July / last, respecting the rights of the / children of the late Judge Gale.* // I am aware that the surviving / child of one of the sisters has since / died, but this would not materially / alter the matter, as the child's / father would be its heir, if there / were anything to inherit from / the surviving sister. Yours truly / J.J.C. Abbott. Sir John Joseph Caldwell Abbott, was the Prime Minister of Canada, 1891-1892. Abbott was the first Canadian born prime minister (born Saint-André-d'Argenteuil, Quebec in 1821). "I hate politics… I hate notoriety, public meetings, public speeches, caucuses, and everything that I know of that is apparently the necessary incident of politics - except doing public work to the best of my ability." Although brief, Abbott's 17-month term as Prime Minister is recognized as being a successful one. He is most remembered for his reforms to the Canadian Criminal Code, improvements to the Civil Service, and the Reciprocity Treaty he signed with the United States. He also smoothed the way for his successor, (and Roman Catholic) Sir John Thompson * Samuel Gale, 1783-1865, a prominent Montreal citizen, Judge and author.

        The Nibelung's Ring (Association Copy)

      London: Privately Printed, 1876. First editions. First edition in English of The Rhein-Gold (1873), The Walkyrie (1873), Siegfried (1873), and Dusk of the Gods (1875). Collating: [iv], 46, [ii, half-title], 61, [i, blank], 66, [ii, half title], 59, [i, blank]. This is the real first edition of the complete librettos (all the dialogue and stage directions) for all 4 parts, sequentially printed for private circulation only, translated by Alfred Forman, and furthermore, our edition precedes the first complete performance of the Ring cycle at Bayreuth in Aug. 1876. And here's the clincher, this copy with the dated signature of actress Alma Murray (February 27, 1876), wife of the translator, Alfred Forman! Bound in what appears to be the original binding of blue cloth over paper-covered boards, gilt title on the spine. With a half title and title page, dated 1876, then apparently gathering the separately printed librettos into one volume. Each libretto with printed (dated) title page, all separately paginated. Our best guess is that after separately printing and distributing his individual librettos, Alfred Forman issued them as a collective whole in 1876 with a general half-title, title page and half-titles for Walkyrie and Dusk of the Gods (each apparently inserted in order to showcase poems by Forman). How many of these were bound up is unknown, but it must have been only a handful as they appear completely unrepresented in an onlince census of institutional holdings. Confusingly, there seem to be several listings on WorldCat for an 1875 London edition of the work, however, when you look at the title page of this supposed 1875 edition, it reads: "a verbatim re-issue of the edition of 1877", clearly not published in 1875. Institutional holdings of the separately printed librettos appear to tally as follows: Walkyrie - 3, Siegfried - 1, Dusk of the Gods - 1. Decidedly rare, this copy with an exceptional provenance.

Mischauflage der ersten und zweiten Auflage dieser ersten deutschen Ausgabe, übersetzt nach der 1876 veröffentlichten Originalausgabe ("Luomo delinquente in rapporto allAnthropologia, alla Giurisprudenza ed alle discipline carcerarie"). Der italienische Mediziner und Anthropologe Cesare Lombroso (1836-1909) war Militärarzt in Pavia, leitete fünf Jahre die Nervenanstalt von Pesaro, lehrte später in Turin gerichtliche Medizin, Hygiene sowie Psychiatrie und gilt als Begründer der Kriminologie. Er vertrat die These, es gebe geborene Verbrecher, die durch körperliche und psychische Merkmale zu erkennen seien. Abstehende Ohren, zusammengewachsene Augenbrauen, schmale Lippen und hervorstehende Eckzähne waren für ihn u. a. Erkennungszeichen krimineller Neigungen. Europaweit lieferten Lombrosos umstrittene Theorien den Anstoß für wissenschaftliche Debatten über die Ursachen des Verbrechens. (vlg. dazu Brockhaus, 19. Aufl. XIII, 509).

        The great divide: travels in the upper yellowstone in the summer of 1874

      London: Chatto and Windus, 1876. FIRST EDITION. With half-title, frontispiece plus 14 full-plate engravings, 2 folding maps (rip on one map and repairs on the other), dedication, and list of illustrations. Later white marble covers backed in cloth, modern endpapers; repairs to maps, otherwise a very nice copy. First edition. A celebration of the American west, written a few years after the establishment of Yellowstone as a national park in 1872. Dunraven praises the United States for their national parks, exclaiming that "privilege of viewing the marvels of nature . . . for ever be free to all nations and all people" (p. xi). In this personal account, he views the area's natural wonders and observes local culture. This includes a chapter dedicated to his interactions with the Crow (also called Apsáalooke or Absaraka) tribe and even playful meditations on the life of a squirrel. Despite his joy at returning to "civilization," this tourist relished the wilds of western America. Wyndham-Quin, 4th Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl (1841-1926), was an Irish politician and famed yachtsman. Joining the army after Oxford, he went on to serve as war correspondent for the Daily Telegraph during the Franco Prussian War. He was the only person present at both the crowning of the Prussian King as German emperor and the peace treaty signing during World War I (ODNB). Dunraven enjoyed visiting the United States, where he "was introduced by General Sheridan to Buffalo Bill (William Cody) and Texas Jack," hunted buffalo, and bought a ranch in Colorado. The great divide was written after his first visit to America and shows this Englishman's love of the Wild West.
