Wagner, Richard, Komponist (1813-1883)
O. O, wohl, 1876. 138:101 mm (Portrait) auf etwas größerem Untersatzkarton. Die auf der Verso-Seite des Untersatzkartons aus dem Atelier des k. k. Hofphotographen Fritz Luckhardt mit sepiafarbener Tinte geschriebene Widmung ist gerichtet an Carl Brandt: "Lieber Brandt | wenn wir erst zum | letzten Brand | gekommen sein werden, | wollen wir Lachnerin | einen Hahn | schlachten | Dieses gelobend bin ich | Ihr | dankbarer Richard Wagner". - Carl Brandt war in den Jahren 1876 und 1882 Bühnenmeister der Bayreuther Festspiele und ein enger Mitarbeiter Wagners (Kaiser, s. u.). Wagners Widmung ist zwar undatiert, dürfte aber aus dem Jahre 1876 stammen und Bezug auf das Schlußbild der "Götterdämmerung" nehmen. Das Portrait mit Wagners Widmung findet Erwähnung im Wagner-Briefe-Verzeichnis (unter A 673) und im Auktionskatalog von Leo Liepmannsohn (Kat. 63, Nr. 193). - Die Bildseite etwas fleckig, die Schrift verso etwas verblaßt. - Hermann Kaiser: Der Bühnenmeister Carl Brandt und Richard Wagner. Kunst der Szene in Darmstadt und Bayreuth. Darmstadt, Eduard Roether Verlag, 1968.

SOCIETE DE MEDECINE ET DE PHARMACIE DE LA HAUTE-VIENNE || LE LIMOUSIN MEDICAL
H. Ducourtieux-Ducourtieux & Gout, Limoges, 1876. Demi basane de l'époque portant le titre doré, ainsi que la date de parution dorée. Trente-sept volumes in-8 (234x152 mm), volumes avec en moyenne entre 200 et 300 pages. Note manuscrite volante au volume de l'année 1889 (entre les pages 126-127). Manques des pages de faux-titre, de titre et des tables des matières aux volumes des années 1907, 1909, 1910 et 1911. Quelques frottements mineurs. Au volume de l'année 1885, le dernier feuillet est collé au second contreplat, avec une déchirure sans manque. Édition originale. A la fin du XIXème siècle, à l'initiative d'un jeune médecin puis d'un collectif de praticiens, une revue spécialisée centrée sur l'actualité médicale de Limoges et de sa région est créée. Elle est tout d'abord publiée sous le titre "Revue médicale de Limoges" entre 1867 et 1874 (interruption de la parution entre octobre 1869 et août 1872) par un médecin seul. En 1876, la parution reprend grâce à un collectif de médecins de la Société de Médecine et de Pharmacie de la Haute-Vienne, dans le but d'entretenir et de transmettre les connaissances et observations de ces derniers. C'est la naissance d'une revue d'envergure à l'échelle de la région, qui est publiée sous le titre "Journal de la Société de Médecine & de Pharmacie de la Haute-Vienne" qui devient en mars 1891 "Le Limousin médical" (Sa publication s'arrête en 1914). Nous avons tous les volumes de cette période sauf le dernier de 1914. Ces archives médicales s'étalent donc sur 47 années. Le but de cette revue fut d': "accentuer le mouvement de décentralisa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Carroll, Lewis [Dodgson, Charles]
London: Macmillan and Co., 1876. First Edition in Presentation Bi. First edition in variant presentation binding of scarlet cloth (intended to match Alice in Wonderland) stamped in gilt, all edges gilt. Though typically found in buff cloth with black stamping, Lewis Carroll wrote to his publisher ordering copies in various colors stamped in gilt, intended for his give friends as presentation copies, requesting such as "100 bound in red and gold, 20 in dark blue and gold, 20 in white vellum and gold." First issue with "baker" not "butcher" on page 83. Binder's ticket on rear paste down. Good+. Cloth shows several small stains, gilt lightly rubbed but generally bright. Spine cloth darkened, chipped at ends, corners frayed, front outer joint partially split, hinge at rear open and binding a bit fragile. A very scarce issue of a book whose author proclaimed it "didn't mean anything but nonsense," which has nonetheless emotionally resonated with and beguiled readers ever since its publication. Good.

SAVILL, John Eden
1876. The uniform series, in watercolour and pencil on brown paper, are matted behind glass in modern frames; visible image size is 240 × 338 mm in all instances. The brown paper has darkened over time, possibly caused by the original card mounts, or exposure to light; apart from a few trifling surface marks to the plain upper portions of two items, and a few tiny light spots (possibly caused by impurities in the old mounts), the paintings are in fine condition. Three of them are signed 'J. Eden Savill' (and two of these are dated 1876); the fourth painting is unsigned. John Eden Savill (circa 1847-1920) 'was an Englishman who had a short but successful career in South Australia as a racehorse owner and trainer, culminating in his horse winning the 1882 Melbourne Cup. He arrived in Adelaide sometime before 1871, when he was, as "Cerberus", drawing political cartoons for "The Portonian", a weekly satirical newspaper, and was also exhibiting his artwork. Shortly after his 1882 triumph with "The Assyrian", Savill and family left for England' and he did not return to Australia (Wikipedia, providing ample substantiation). His identity and activities were not known to Joan Kerr when she published her comprehensive 'Dictionary of Australian Artists' in 1991. That same year, the only example of his work to appear in the even more comprehensive records of Australian art auctions was offered by Christies Australia - in May (unsold at $1500-2000), and again in September, when it sold for $1650, with a reduced estimate of $1000-1500. That painting, 'Australian Kangaroo Hunt', was simil … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scott, James Renat, F.S. A
J R Scott, F.S.A, London. This rare book is 1st edition of a privately printed and published book of 1876; it is a fascinating record of a particular and ancient family, now widespread throughout the English-speaking world. Its incredibly heavily researched and fascinating contents include:1. Origin and antiquity of the name of Scott. 2.Origin of the Family of Scott of Scot's Hall. 3.Particulars connected with the earlier history and descent of the Scott Family. 4. Description and Memorials of Brabourne Church, Kent. 5.History of the Royal Manor of Brabourne, Kent. 6. Biography of the family of Scott of Scot's Hall, Kent. At one time the family owned vast amounts of land in the South East of England. There was a time when one could "ride from Scot's Hall to London without leaving Scott property," a journey of over 50 miles and the house was well-known to Samuel Pepys. Bonhams, the auctioneers, say that they only know of 8 copies and those are all in public collections, amongst them: the National Library of Scotland, the Royal Collection and Balliol College, Oxford some American Universities also have a copy. It is unknown how many copies were originally printed. It's a large and very heavy book of some 266 pages with an appendix of another 82. It is beautifully illustrated with small prints, coats of arms, etc. This copy has wear to all edges and corners. There is only the lightest of foxing and that is occasional but some of the pages have worn and age-darkeneed edges. There are one or two pencilled annotations only and a tiny pencil sketch of woman's face - 20th century. … [Click Below for Full Description]

NASMYTH, James Hall & CARPENTER, James
Leopold Voss, Leipzig, 1876. 4to (255 x 195 mm). vii [1], 165, [3] pp. With 21 mount photo-mechanical plates ("Lichtdruck") on 19 leaves; 2 lithographed plates (1 in color); wood engravings in text. Original publishers printed boards and cloth spine (boards rubbed and age-toned, cloth at joints partly split and frayed, corners slightly scuffed). Text and plates little age-toned, occasional foxing (some plates stronger). ---- Ashworth, The face of the moon, Linda Hall, 20 (for 1st ed.) FIRST GERMAN EDITION. "Nasmyth was brought up in an artistic family, made a fortune as a manufacturer and inventor, and retired to take up astronomy. He built his own 20" reflector in 1842 (inventing the Nasmyth focus in the process), and began to concentrate on lunar studies. Nasmyth brought photography to the aid of selenography in an unusual manner. Since photography was not yet advanced enough to take photographs of lunar details, Nasmyth constructed plaster models based on visual observations, and then photographed the models. For this book, the photographs were then printed by the arduous Woodburytype process, perhaps the most faithful method ever devised for the reproduction of photographs. The Woodburytype has no grain whatsoever, because it does not use cracks or dots to reproduce tone. Instead, a relief mold is made of the image in lead, so that the areas of dark tone are deep and light tone shallow. Ink suspended in gelatin is cast in the mold, and the resulting print produces contrast by the thickness or thinness of the ink" (Ashworth). - Visit our website to see more images!

With Portraits, Making A Complete Rogues' Gallery, by Phil. Farley, Detective. Published by the author in 1876. This is a first edition hardcover book measuring about 9" x 6" with 638 pages. The date on the copyright page is 1875 and the date on the title page is 1876. The title page also says Author's Edition, which means that Philip Farley published the book himself.

The binding is in good shape though the bottom 2" of the endpaper hinge is cracked. The pages are in good shape with very light intermittent foxing and there is a dampness stain on the top 1/4" of most pages.

Carroll, Lewis (Dodgson, Charles)
London: Macmillan and Co, 1876. Henry Holiday. Hard Cover. First Edition. Very Good. Illustrated by Henry Holiday. First edition, first printing, with "baker" on page 83 and a single leaf of publisher's advertisement. Publisher's decorative light tan boards with illustrations by Holiday in black, lettered in black. A very good copy, with some wear and light fraying to spine ends, corners lightly worn, some faint evidence of an early glue repair to the lower spine, otherwise a bright, sturdy and fresh attractive copy. In this poem, Carroll returns to the setting of "Jabberwocky," the nonsense poem that was published as part of his 1872 novel Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There. Specifically, "The Hunting of the Snark" tells the story of ten sailors, each of whose name begins with the letter B, who are in search of a fearsome creature known as the "snark" which they fear may be an especially dangerous sort known as a "boojum." Like "Jabberwocky," this poem is filled with fantastical adventures, impossible scenarios, and gibberish words. [Attributes: First Edition]
