        1st A POEM ON SHELLEY'S DEATH

      Edited by H. Buxton Foman, Originally written not long after Shelley's death in 1822 in one of Mary Shelley's journals, this poem remained unpublished until 1876 when it was privately printed by Forman, loosely bound in the original card covers with title label fixed to upper cover, printed on very nice quality handmade paper, pages un-sewn with a loosely inserted engraved portrait of Shelley, 14pp, some mild corner creasing to the covers, a couple of minor marks within, else in very nice clean condition, no indication of the size of the print run for this printing, but I would imagine it was a very small, very scarce

        Letters and Social Aims

      1876 - EMERSON, Ralph Waldo. Letters and Social Aims. Boston: James R. Osgood, 1876 [i.e. 1875]. Octavo, original terracotta cloth. Housed in a half morocco chemise and full morocco slipcase. $11,000.First edition, first printing, association copy, of the last volume of essays published during Emerson's lifetime, bearing the ownership signature of Emerson's neighbor, Jeanie M. LeBrun, and additionally signed for her by Emerson and dated by him in the year of publication, "6 Jan 1876."This was the last volume of essay published during Emerson's lifetime. By the 1870s, Emerson had faded and "gradually slipped into a serene senility in which his mind finally became a calm blank" (OCAL). "A longtime friend, James Elliot Cabot, was enlisted by the family to help put Emerson's literary manuscripts in order and prepare his lectures for delivery and his writings for publication". Cabot and Emerson's daughter Ellen put together a final volume of essays, Letters and Social Aims (1876), some reprinted ('The Comic,' 'Quotation and Originality,' and 'Persian Poetry') and others drawn from Emerson's manuscripts ('Poetry and Imagination,' 'Social Aims,' 'Eloquence,' 'Resources,' 'Progress of Culture,' 'Inspiration,' 'Greatness,' and 'Immortality')". Emerson died quietly in Concord and was buried at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, close to the graves of the Alcotts, Hawthornes, and Thoreaus" (ANB). First printing, with "N" on page 209 and with "inviolate" and "choices" on page 308 (changed respectively in the second and third printings to "inviolable" and "choice"). Though this work is dated 1876, the first printing took place on December 16, 1875 and was first advertised on Christmas of that year in Publisher's Weekly. Myerson A43.1a. BAL 5272. This copy belonged to and bears the ownership signature of Jean M. LeBrun, a Concord neighbor of the Emersons, as well as the Thoreaus, Alcotts, and Hawthornes. LeBrun's signature is dated Christmas day, just days after publication, suggesting that this book may have been a gift to her""one that she embellished by securing Emerson's signature. LeBrun would later attain her own minor fame for a piece she wrote to the Boston Advertiser in 1883 (later separately published in booklet form) that responded to the 1882 first book-length biography of Thoreau. The biography was written by Frank B. Sanborn, yet another Concord neighbor who worked as a schoolteacher instructing the children of Emerson, Hawthorne, and James. Sanborn also proposed to Emerson's daughter, Edith, who rejected him. In his biography of Thoreau, Sanborn presented an unflattering and ungenerous portrait of Thoreau's mother. Jean LeBrun, in her piece for the Advertiser undertook to defend both Thoreau and his mother posthumously.Interior with only a couple faint stains, light rubbing to extremities of binding. A near-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Effects of Cross and Self Fertilization in the Vegetable Kingdom.

      London: John Murray,, 1876. Octavo. Original green cloth, covers blocked with a blind panel, spine lettered and decorated in gilt. Errata slip inserted at p. 1; diagram at p. 53; 109 letterpress tables. Spine slightly darkened, a couple of black marks to front cover, very minor wear to spine ends and lower tips, hinges cracked but holding. A very good copy. First edition. Darwin's research on fertilisation in plants was an offshoot of his work on evolution and natural selection. To demonstrate that genetic variation gave organisms an advantage in the struggle for survival, he performed experiments demonstrating that self-fertilisation weakened plants in comparison with those that had been cross-fertilised. Darwin considered this volume to be a compliment to his 1862 book, Fertilisation of Orchids, though this one was more technical and the initial print run was low, with only 1,500 copies selling in the first year.

        Report of the Exploring Expedition. in 1859

      1876 - MACOMB, John N. and NEWBERRY, John S. Report of the Exploring Expedition From Santa Fé, New Mexico, To the Junction of the Grand and Green Rivers of the Great Colorado of the West in 1859. Washington: Government Printing Office, 1876. Quarto, contemporary three-quarter navy morocco, raised bands, marbled endpapers and edges. $6500.First edition of the account of Macomb and Newberry's expedition from New Mexico to Colorado and the Grand Canyon, with 22 full page plates, including eleven chromolithographed plates, eight lithographed plates of fossils and three lithographed plates of landscapes, along with "one of the most beautiful maps ever published by the Army" (Wheat), association copy of Vannoy Hartrog Manning, a Confederate Civil War officer in the Civil War who later served as Mississippi's Representative to the U.S. Congress (1877-83)."In June 1859 Capt. John N. Macomb, chief topographical officer in New Mexico, was ordered to lead an expedition northward along the Old Spanish Trail in search of the desired military road into Utah. Twenty thousand dollars was appropriated for the expedition, and Macomb was authorized to take along John Strong Newberry". Macomb [and] Newberry". made their way". across the tortured landscape toward the junction of the Green and Grand rivers. At one point their view swept across a wide expanse of the country and Newberry wrote that it was "˜everywhere deeply cut by a tangled maze of canyons, and thickly set with towers, castles, and spires of the most varied and striking forms; the most wonderful monuments of erosion, which our eyes, already experienced in objects of this kind, had ever beheld" (Goetzmann, 394-7). Macomb's geographical report was initially issued without Newberry's geological report (because Newberry was still working for the Sanitary Commission in the west), but publication was delayed for 15 years owning to the Civil War, allowing time for Newberry's contribution to be included. The plates depict the various canyons and rivers the expedition encountered, as well as eight geological plates. The folding map, measuring 30 by 36 inches, "is one of the most beautiful". ever published by the army. Like Ives' maps it was done by "˜Baron' F.W. Egloffstein". Again he speaks of the "˜Big Cañon' of the Colorado River, thus making it clear that the term Grand Cañon had not yet emerged". This is a landmark map" (Wheat IV, 142-3). Howes M179. Wagner-Camp 379b. Graff 2647. Farquhar 23. This volume was specially bound for Vannoy Hartrog Manning, who was a Representative for Mississippi in the 45th, 46th and 47th U.S. Congresses (1877-83) after serving the Confederacy in the Civil War as Colonel of the 3rd Arkansas Infantry and 2nd Arkansas Battalion. With gilt-lettered "Van. H. Manning" printed to the spine end.Text and plates very fresh and clean, several expertly repaired small closed tears to gutter edge of folding map, slight edge-wear, faint rubbing to boards. A scarce near-fine copy with a memorable provenance. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Cours divers sur l'aliénation mentale

      1876 - 893 pages [Paris], 1876-1877, in-4, 893 pages, demi-basane verte, Notes prises par l'un des élèves de l'aliéniste Jules Falret (1824-1902) au cours des leçons cliniques données à l'École pratique ; soit 22 leçons données entre le 14 novembre 1876 et le 3 février 1877. Les LEÇONS DE FALRET N'ONT JAMAIS ÉTÉ PUBLIÉES. Selon le témoignage de l'un de ses élèves, l'historien de la psychiatrie René Semelaigne, Falret avait eu à coeur de publier ses cours : « le voeu [de Falret] ne devait pas se réaliser, et ce fut grand dommage, car les leçons auxquelles j'ai pu assister offraient le plus vif intérêt ; j'en avais recueilli plusieurs et regrette de les avoir égarées ». Jules-Philippe-Joseph Falret (1824-1902), reçu internes des hôpitaux de Paris en 1847, passa deux années à la Salpêtrière avant de rejoindre la maison de santé de Vanves créée par son père Jean-Pierre (1794-1870) et par Félix Voisin. En 1853, il soutint sa thèse inaugurale intitulée Recherches sur la folie paralytique et diverses paralysies générales. Dès 1854, il est admis au sein de la Société médico-psychologique, dont il deviendra le président en 1871. En 1867, il fut nommé médecin de Bicêtre, poste qu'il occupa jusqu'en 1884 pour succéder à Moreau de Tours à la Salpêtrière, qu'il quittera en 1897. A la mort de son père, il reprit la direction de la maison de Vanves en 1872 et s'adjoignit la collaboration de Jules Cotard jusqu'en 1889, puis de Léon-François Arnaud. En août 1889, lors du Congrès international de médecine tenu sous sa présidence, il fut décidé de la création d'un congrès annuel de médecine mentale, auquel il prit plusieurs fois part. La volonté de Jules Falret de réunir ses travaux épars sur les maladies mentales prit forme avec la publication, en 1890, de son ouvrage principal, les Études cliniques et des Aliénés et les asiles d'aliénés, assistance, législation et médecine légale , la plupart de ses écrits avaient paru dans les Archives générales et dans les Annales médico-psychologiques. Les leçons cliniques en elles-mêmes sont restées inédites. Dos fortement insolé et épidermé. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        CATALOGUE DE LA EXPOSITION ANNUELLE DES OEUVRES DES ARTISTES ET AMATEURS FRANÇAIS ET ÉTRANGERS AINSI QUE DES APPAREILS ET PRODUITS, APPARTENANT À TOUTES LES BRANCHES DE L'ART PHOTOGRAPHIQUE

      Paris: Société Française de Photographie, 1876. First editions. 8vos., various paginations, from approx. 25 pp. to 65 pp. Original printed paper wrappers. 10 volumes, all published. The issue of 1859 has a dampstain running along the blank lower margin of the first 20 pp. and soiled wrappers. The 1861 issued has the neat stamp of André Jammes on the blank lower margin of the front wrapper. Minor wear or lacking a few tiny chips at the spines. Near fine. Housed in a newly made clamshell box of cloth with printed paper label. "Within months of its founding, the SFP began to organize photographic exhibitions; the first opened in September 1855 and coincided with the Paris Universal Exposition which featured a remarkably strong showing of photographic work. Between 1855 and 1876, the SPF organized eleven photographic( biennial) exhibitions - a continuous program of exhibitions which roughly coincided with the Paris painting salons. Exhibitions were open to members and non-members, and to foreigner practitioners. The SPF's exhibitions quickly achieved the status of the photographic salon on the order of the official painting salons. By far the most press recognition and critical attention accorded to photography was directed to the exhibitions of the SPF. With the exception of the 1855 exhibition, every later exhibition was accompanied by a catalogue which listed photographers by name and nationality, described the subject of submitted images, and identified both negative and print processes. They constitute an invaluable resource for researchers." From the article by Kathleen Stewart Howe, p. 1280-81, Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography. A complete run of this biennial publication which began in 1857 with the DIEUXIÈME EXPOSITION and continues through to the ONZIÈME EXPOSITION. Titles vary slightly, as well as the printers, who include: Imprimerie de Mallet-Bachelier, Imprimerie et Lithographie de Renou et Maulde, and Imprimerie de Gauthier-Villars. Extremely rare with WorldCat locating only one full set at Harvard Fine Arts; with three locations for only the 1857 issue.

(Rel. de l'ép.), Première édition de cet ouvrage essentiel dans lequel on retrouve dès la page 6, les principes fondateurs de la théorie expérimentale de Claude Bernard qui offriront une véritable rupture épistémologique à la physiologie et à la médecine. Visionnaire, le physiologiste prévoit les évolutions qui seront celles de la biologie presque 100 ans après lui : "La physiologie cherche, par l'analyse expérimentale, à pénétrer jusqu'aux éléments anatomiques. Pour atteindre ce but, elle doit faire l'étude des tissus à l'aide de l'histologie, et elle demande à la physique et à la chimie de lui révéler et de lui expliquer les propriétés de ces éléments".

      1876. 136 nn. Bll. mit zahlreichen (davon 11 ganzs.) eh. Aufzeichnungen und 17 (einmontierten bzw. beiliegenden) eh. Briefen diverser Schreiber (u.a. von Franz von Dingelstedt, Luise Erhart und Theodor Liedtcke), eingeklebten Rezensionen, Programmzetteln u.ä. Zeitgen. Pappband. 4to. Josef Grünstein war Berufssoldat in der österreichischen Marine, ehe er Journalist - u. a. Redakteur beim "Berliner Fremdenblatt" - und freiberuflicher Schriftsteller wurde. Der Einakter 'Maidenspeech' ist Grünsteins erste dramatische Arbeit und wurde am 16. März 1876 im Königlichen Schauspielhaus in Berlin uraufgeführt. Über die Premiere hieß es u. a.: "'Maidenspeech' wird bald Repertoirstück aller hervorragenden Bühnen werden" (Deutsch-österreichische Theaterzeitung vom 19. März 1876). Im Jahr darauf wurde "Maidenspeech" u. a. am Münchner Hoftheater und am Hamburger Thaliatheater gleichfalls mit großem Beifall begrüßt. Für Luise Erhart, die Darstellerin der Gräfin Rüden in der Uraufführung, war es eine ihrer letzten Rollen, da sie 1878 ihren Abschied von der Bühne nahm; Theodor Liedtcke, der den Grafen Holms spielte, war bis 1889 Ensemblemitglied des Berliner Hoftheaters.

He wrote extensively as an essayist and reviewer. His books on British history have been hailed as literary masterpieces. He was a member of the Babington family by virtue of his aunt's marriage to Thomas Babington.Sir George Otto Trevelyan, 2nd Baronet OM PC (1838-1928) was a British statesman and author. In a ministerial career stretching almost thirty years years, he was most notably twice Secretary for Scotland under William Ewart Gladstone and the Earl of Rosebery. He broke with Gladstone over the 1886 Irish Home Rule Bill, but after modifications were made to the bill he re-joined the Liberal Party shortly afterwards. Also a writer and historian, Trevelyan published The Life and Letters of Lord Macaulay, his maternal uncle, in 1876.The London bindery of W. Root & Son consistently turned-out excellent work, both on fine bindings as here, and on trade bindings and sets. Packer lists the firm in business in Red Lion Square in 1899-1901, and the December 1942 issue of The Rotarian notes with regret that W. Root had been bombed out (uprooted?) of their premises on Paternaster Row during the 1941 Blitz. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Flore Ornementale: Essai sur la Composition de l'Ornement, Elements Tires de la Nature et Principes de Leur Application

      Paris: Dunod, 1876. Hardcover. Good+ (Former library book with ink stamps and perforated stamps, including on title page. Library ink stamp on every plate. Mild foxing throughout, Plate 142 being the worst.). Ruprich-Robert; Cl. Sauvageot (engraver). Black buckram (a library rebinding). 146 pp + plates. 108 figures in text (3 within introduction and 105 within main chapters) plus 152 full page BW plates (including title plate). Signed by Ruprich-Robert. Victor-Marie-Charles Ruprich-Robert (1820-1887) was a French architect, designer and architectural historian. This book was the culmination of the twenty years' teaching of ornamental composition at the Ecole gratuite de dessin de Paris (Paris Free School of Drawing). He would illustrate his courses by painting freehand examples, which were engraved for this book. The material is arranged in four parts: Leaves, Plants, Flowers, and Compositions. Exquisite detail in these plates. NOTE: All plates are numbered. Most were numbered at the time of engraving, just above the image. 25 in this volume, however, are numbered in pencil, either just above the image or at the bottom of the engraving page. Since this is a library binding, the collection could be a combination of two different engravings. The set, however, is complete and in order, and condition is consistent.

      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.

Wolf-Ferrari asks his correspondent to send him some scores as soon as possible so he can study them "lovingly" rather than superficially. "I had already sent my Venice address to Via dei Greci, Rome, and from there they had already answered me, telling me that they would have sent the scores just as soon as [Arturo] Toscanini had released them...The scores are really a lot. They should get to me right away so I can prepare with ease... I will need at least twenty days so that the examination would not be too superficial, but rather, loving."

        Autograph letter signed ("R. F. Burton"). Trieste, Consulate, 19. VI. 1876.

      1876. 3 pp. Small 8vo. On his blue notepaper with his Arabic heading. To the publisher and author George Bentley (1828-95), stating that he has "polished up Scinde, now 'Sind' or the Unhappy Valley, that is I have almost re-written it. As your late father was the first to publish it I think it only fair to offer it to you. The augmentations will fatten the volumes, and I have a lot of photographs and old sketches (caricatures of Sir Charles Napier etc.etc.) which I think might be introduced with advantage, but are you inclined so to do? [...]". He says he will wait, "before giving the last touches to the book and then send it [...] When you receive it you will make up your mind and let me know [...] I shall probably be at Trieste for some time, but residence is always doubtful under the F.O. After Iceland, 6 months in India & Sind a little rest is of course desirable, to get it however is the difficulty [...]". - Burton brought Napier much detailed information on wife killing and bizarre reality although Napier had signed the death warrants of several rich convicted murderers. Napier was impressed by Burton's reports and would accept counsel from him. Burton, for example, suggested that Napier continue the practice of killing a murderer by shooting him out of a cannon rather than hanging, as a lack of proper burial would mean the Muslim would never reach paradise. Napier was disturbed by reports of homosexuality amongst the Muslims. Certain reports spoke of male brothels in Karachi which were corrupting the troops, and Napier asked Burton to investigate. Burton agreed to do this on the "express condition that my report should not be forwarded to the Bombay Government, from whom supporters of the Conqueror's policy could expect scant favour, justice, or mercy."

        The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

      London: John Murray,, 1876. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt and with decorative band at head and foot, blind-tooled rules and decorations to boards, brown endpapers. With fold-out diagram. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Some rubbing to extremities, front hinge starting but text block sound, some light foxing to contents. A very good copy. Sixth edition, eighteenth thousand; the first issue of the final definitive text. This issue was of 1,250 copies only, as small as any, "and is remarkably hard to come by" (Freeman). There are only slight corrections from the 1872 text but they are undoubtedly those of Darwin himself. Stereos of this issue were used for the very many issues which followed, from 1878 to 1929. Modern reprints of the Origin usually state that they are based on the sixth edition of 1872, but they are actually based on this of 1876.

Pages, 215/6, 243/4 & 245/6 with tiny pieces (1/4 x 1/8 inch max) torn away from upper corner. Some expert and very small repairs to inner hinges, some light stains to rear endpapers just affecting last two blank fly-leaves.

Head and tail of spine and corners expertly and almost invisibly strengthened, small abrasion with loss of cloth (1/8 inch square) on rear cover, gilt on spine a little dull. Neat early ink presentation inscription on the front free endpaper, dated Dec 25th/76. Even with the aforementioned issues this is still an exceptional copy of the very rare first issue of this classic tale. Housed in a quarter black morocco clamshell case.?Turning away from the adult corruption and humbuggery which he had satirized in The Gilded Age, Mark Twain refreshed his spirit in this semi-autobiographical story of boyhood. The irresponsibility, the love of odd adventure, and the sense of natural justice as opposed to the village code, which characterize the heroes of this book and its sequel Huckleberry Finn, presented a sharp contrast to the Sunday School or rags-to-riches literature which was then the common fare doled out to children. For once, the natural rights of the small boy were set forth by a great writer who remembered his own childhood, when he had indeed inveigled some boys into whitewashing a fence for him, given pain-killer to his cat, teased his brother unmercifully, and continually sharpened his wits in devising ways of escaping punishment. These books let fresh air into the minds of parents who had shut the door on their own childhood, and they will be classics the world over as long as there are boys? (Grolier, 100 American).?The book was published during December 1876 although application for copyright had been made as early as July 21, 1875; copies were not received for entry at the Library of Congress until January 2, 1877. The [first] English edition [published by Chatto & Windus, London] was published on June 9, 1876, about six months before the American edition was put on sale? (Peter Parley to Penrod).BAL 3369.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Dresden, 4. XII. 1876.

      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 Coppée's Luthier de Crémone 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 François Edouard Joachim Coppée (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'.
