LIADOV, Anatoly Konstantinovich 1855-1914
The 14 pieces that make up the Biroulki were composed in 1876. "In his [Liadov's] numerous piano pieces, while preserving a high level of taste, he has contrived to introduce a pleasing diversity of styles. The "Arabesques," Op. 4, and the fourteen "Biroulki," Op. 2 (the title denoting a Russian version of the parlour game known as "Spillikins") are valued items in the repertory of many pianists." Montagu-Nathan: A History of Russian Music, p. 96. "Lyadov came from a family of professional musicians notorious for their loose living and slipshod attitude to work. He broke away only partly from this pattern; his personal integrity was beyond reproach, but he never succeeded in applying himself wholeheartedly to his work for more than a short period. Although he possessed considerable technical facility, it was sheer indolence that led to his expulsion from the St Petersburg Conservatory in 1876, and his unreliability was such that Rimsky-Korsakov, an admirer of his talents, was unwilling to allow him to become director of the Free School concerts in 1880. His lifelong reputation for procrastination was confirmed for posterity when, after much dithering, he turned down Diaghilev's request to write a ballet score to be based on The Firebird, thus providing Stravinsky with one of his first important commissions. Yet he was held in great affection by his fellow musicians, and, although he never completed a work of any size or scope, the best of his miniatures assure for him a permanent niche in the history of Russian music."

Lewis Carroll
THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK An Agony in Eight Fits By Lewis Carroll With Nine Illustrations by Henry Holiday Fourteen Thousand and Fifteenth Thousand London Maacmillian & Co. 1876 Contents: - The Hunting of the Snark (An Agony in 8 Fits) is typically categorized as a nonsense poem written by Lewis Carroll, the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Written from 1874 to 1876, the poem borrows the setting, some creatures, and eight portmanteau words from Carroll's earlier poem "Jabberwocky" in his children's novel Through the Looking Glass (1871). Henry Holiday, the illustrator of the poem, thought of it as a "tragedy". The plot follows a crew of ten trying to hunt the Snark, an animal which may turn out to be a highly dangerous Boojum. The only one of the crew to find the Snark quickly vanishes, leading the narrator to explain that it was a Boojum after all. The poem is dedicated to young Gertrude Chataway, whom Carroll met at the English seaside town Sandown in the Isle of Wight in 1875. These are editions that should be in any serious library, especially those who love Carroll's work. Typically categorized in the genre of nonsense poetry, The Hunting of the Snark borrows the setting, some creatures, and eight invented words from Lewis Carroll's poem "Jabberwocky" in Through the Looking Glass. Carroll agreed with one interpretation of the poem as an allegory for the search for happiness. Condition of Fourteenth Thousand book - The front hard cover is detached and the back cover is barely holding on. The strip from the cover at the spine were the title would be is gone.

During the last quarter of the nineteenth century there was, as there is again now, great interest in Herefordshire and in the surrounding counties in the conservation of old apple and pear varieties. There was also concern among agriculturalists about the neglected state of many Herefordshire orchards. Efforts were made to restock the orchards with 'the most esteemed kinds of British apples and pears'. A detailed compilation was made over a period of about ten years, by the Pomona Committee of the Woolhope Naturalists' Field Club of Hereford, of all the notable varieties of apples and pears at that time being grown in Herefordshire orchards.

Brian, Foreman of Printing at the Government Printing Office, Washington, informs me that he would be glad to serve in that capacity and I am requested to state to you my opinion of him. From my acquaintance with Mr. Brian while editing the Vienna Reports. I am led to believe him an expert in his business and a very good man for that place.

Livorno Israel Kushta and friend, 1876. Quarto, (23 x 16.5 cm); 38 ll. 58 woodcut illustrations in text and additional decorative initial letters. Later 19th century marbled boards with calf spine. Edges and spine rubbed. Leaves clean with occasional light spotting and browning. Text in Hebrew, Aramaic and Ladino. At the end of the eighteenth century the Hebrew presses of Venice declined and were entirely replaced by the Livornese (Leghorn) Hebrew printers, who have been competing for the title of "the centre of Hebrew printing" with Venice for more than a hundred years by that point. In the 19th century Livorno became the chief supplier of Hebrew books to other Italian communities. "The Livornese Hebrew printers created their own styles, and their title pages and typography are often readily distinguishable from others. In their Haggadahs, however, they created no new iconography of their own. They were content to copy the woodcuts of the Venetian editions of 1609 and 1629, and their subsequent reprints. Thus through Leghorn the Venetian illustrations achieved an unexpected immortality." Yerusalmi, Hasggadah and History. The illustrations and decorative initial letters in this Haggadah are based on the ones of the 1609 Venice Haggadah (see Yerusalmi, plates 44, 45, 46, 54, 91, 92 and 106). Variation copies of these illustrations can be found in other 19th century Livornese Haggadahs, by different publishers. Yaari 1101; Yudlov 1468. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

First edition, original parts. 8 vols, original brown cloth, printed wrappers bound in. London, Chapman and Hall. A presentable set, most joints neatly repaired, extremities of bindings slightly rounded but unfrayed, some occasional light staining to the text, a few pencil marginal emphases, and the contemporary ownership inscriptions of one Edward R. Russell, possibly the editor of the Liverpool Daily Post, later elected to Parliament as a Member for Glasgow and later yet enobled as 1st Baron Russell of Liverpool. The Prime Minister was published at the end of the era of publication of novels in parts, and Michael Sadleir (Trollope a Bibliography, 45) speculates that the reduction from 32 or 20 parts down to 8 was a ?concession to public weariness of frequent short instalments? During this endgame part issues were occasionally issued simultaneously in cloth and wrappers, as here and with George Eliot's Middlemarch (1871) and Daniel Deronda (1876). Sadleir, in a further speculation, suggests that ?Perhaps there were also protests from trade quarters against paper wrappers, so that, to appease the libraries of booksellers, an alternative style of cloth- bound parts was issued, which would stand more wear and circulation than those in fragile paper.? Sadleir 45, the first state of the cloth bound part issue, ?Part Issue (B) (i).? [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Die Bedeutung des "Skizzenbuches" liegt vor allem in der Beschreibung tatsächlich ausgeführter Anlagen, wobei die Angaben direkt von den Konstrukteuren oder Bauherren stammen und meist von Wiebe prägnant zusammengefasst worden sind. Technische Denkmale können so in ihrem Entstehungsprozeß nachvollzogen werden. Die "vorzüglichen Maßzeichnungen" (ADB 42, S. 371) leisten dabei hervorragende Dienste u. bilden den eigentlichen Wert der Publikation. Unter den Konstrukteuren u.

Ulrico Hoepli, Milano, 1876. 4°, legatura mz.tela coeva, titoli oro al dorso, pp.(4)-255-(1) di errata, con 4 illustrazioni di cui una applicata. Firma di appartenenza, una pagina aggiunta con una scritta coeva e rilegata insieme al libro, ex libris. Prima edizione dell?opera di Cesare Lombroso (1835-1909) che segna la nascita dell?antropologia criminale. "L'approccio è fondamentalmente psichiatrico e antropologico. Vi è qualche accenno all'ambiente come elemento scatenante del delitto ed i fattori sociali in pratica non vengono presi in considerazione. L'Autore tiene invece presente una serie di elementi di indubbio rilievo quali la povertà, il costo degli alimenti, l'alcoolismo. [?] Il libro materializza il nucleo centrale del lombrosismo". Le edizioni successive, infatti, "saranno un arricchimento e rimaneggiamento" della prima edizione. La presente edizione non ottenne un grande successo e fu duramente criticata ma questo era rivelatore del "disagio ad accettare una teoria che non era soltanto innovativa, ma scardinava una mentalità secolare consolidata nel ritenere il delitto pura espressione della malvagità dell'uomo" (cfr.Baima Bollone "Cesare Lombroso ovvero il principio dell'irresponsabilità" 118). Lombroso ebbe il merito, anche se probabilmente non del tutto voluto, di aprire il dibattito sulla malattia mentale e sul rapporto con il comportamento delinquente, sulla necessità di distinguere chi necessitava di cure e chi andava punito. # Raro.

First edition of Hardy's follow up to Far from the Madding Crowd. "[I]ts settings are more often urban or suburban than rural, its central characters either servants or their middle- and upper-class employers, and its romantic elements subordinated to the central story ... of how, at what cost, and with what ironic implications, a butler's daughter, Ethelberta Petherwin, wins her way to social and financial power as the wife of the wealthy but dissolute Lord Mountclere. Hardy doubtless intended to demonstrate that his professional range extended beyond rural settings, but the novel was poorly received..." (ODNB). Purdy pp. 20-24; Wolff 2977; Sadleir 1107. Provenance: Albert Henry Wiggin (bookplates); Lynde Selden (detached bookplates). Full crimson morocco by C.J.

BRAHMS, Johannes, Komponist (1833-1897)
Ohne Ort und Datum (wohl vor ), 1876. 2 Seiten, kl-8. - An Johann Naret-Koning. "Lieber Herr Koning, Ich fahre Montag Nacht um 1 Uhr von hier ab, werde also Hrn. Lehrers Gastfreundschaft zu meinem herzlichen Bedauern nicht genießen können. Pfälzer Hof habe ich nennen hören u. entweder sehe ich Sie dort Dienstag Früh oder ich suche Sie auf. Hoffentlich kann ich den Mittwoch noch bleiben. Weiter wäre ja nichts zu sagen als daß es eigentlich gar lustig wäre wenn Sie am Montag hier zuhörten u. wir zusammen die Fahrt machten. Doch das ist wohl zu lustig gedacht. Levi grüßt herzlich. Eilig Ihr ergebener J. Brahms." Nicht bei Kalbeck. - Der niederländische Geiger Johann Naret-Koning (1838-1905) wirkte unter anderem bei der Uraufführung von Brahms' 1. Streichquartett (op. 88) im Dezember 1882 in Frankfurt mit. Er war Schüler und Freund des Dirigenten und Komponisten Hermann Levi (1839-1900), der zunächst in enger Verbindung mit Brahms stand. 1875 kam es allerdings zum Bruch zwischen Brahms und Levi, der sich zu dieser Zeit bereits verstärkt Richard Wagner zugewandt hatte.

Wien, Rom u.a., 1844, 1876. Zus. 25 S., 8°. Beckx besuchte ab 1815 das Jesuitenkolleg in Mecheln, wo er am 7. März 1819 die Priesterweihe empfing. 1819 trat Beckx der Ordensgemeinschaft der Gesellschaft Jesu bei. Nach seelsorgerischen Tätigkeiten in Hamburg, Hildesheim und Braunschweig wurde er in Hildesheim Professor für Kirchenrecht. 1830 übersiedelte er nach Wien und wurde von seinem Orden, aber auch vom Heiligen Stuhl, mit wichtigen Missionen in die Lombardei, nach Ungarn und nach Bayern betraut. Im Revolutionsjahr 1848 wurde Beckx mit allen anderen Jesuiten aus Österreich vertrieben. Beckx ging zurück nach Belgien und wurde 1851 Rektor des Kollegs in Löwen. Bald kehrte er jedoch wieder nach Österreich zurück und wurde 1852 zum Superior von Ungarn ernannt und kurze Zeit später zum Provinzial der Provinz Österreich. Als am 8. Mai 1853 der 21. General des Ordens, Joannes Philippus Roothaan starb, wählte die Generalversammlung am 2. Juli 1853 Beckx einstimmig zum 22. General des Ordens. Beckx schaffte es in seiner ca. vierjährigen Amtszeit, die Zahl der Ordensmitglieder mehr als zu verdoppeln. Auch die häufigen Missionen in protestantische Gegenden und der bedeutende Einfluss, welchen der Orden besonders seit Ende der 1850er Jahre gewonnen hatte, waren vornehmlich seiner geschickten Leitung der Ordensangelegenheiten zuzuschreiben. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878).

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". Ces Leçons ont été données entre 1871 et 1872 au Collège de France. Cachet annulé de l'Institut catholique de Paris et étiquette en pied du dos. Rousseurs faibles, dos insolé. Waller n° 956.

An American folk art cane measuring approximately 34 3/4 inches long. Dated June 7, 1876, this was one week before the Republican National Convention in Cincinnati, OH (June 14 -16) where Rutherford B. Hayes and William A. Wheeler were nominated for president and vice president respectively. A contested victory occurred on November 7, 1876. Hayes and Wheeler won the electoral votes in the state of Illinois. Cane specifics and history of the election are detailed below. 1876 was 5 years after the Great Chicago Fire. In 1871, Chicago had a population of just under 300,000. Between 1870 and 1900 Chicago grew from a city of 299,000 to nearly 1.7 million, the fastest-growing city ever at the time. Shipping includes insurance. Thanks for looking.The wood handle measures approximately 32 1/4 inches and the width is approximately 3 3/8 inches. It is fairly light but sturdy and was made for a tall gentleman. The reddish paint is more stable towards the top than the bottom as pictured. Also, there is a tar remnant on the handle as pictured. There is slight "play" at 90 degrees but it is extremely subtle and definitely not close to 1 millimeter of shifting. A crack runs through the "ee" of Wheeler and loss before Gray as pictured. Based on extensive research, this cane was probably made by a young gentleman in Aurora, IL, a 19th century industrial hub on the Fox river 40 miles west of Chicago (settled 1834 and incorporated 1845). A search of genealogical records found a gentleman born in Aurora IL in 1859 with the name Charles F. Earl whose father was born in Massachusetts. Felix was … [Click Below for Full Description]
