Handwritten in English, to an unidentified photographer: Dear Sir, I received our letter with the enclosed photographs but never those (?)others you have sent to my adress (sic) in London. I am sorry, but you will remember that I told you I would leave London on Good-Friday, and that we settled Thursday evening where you promised to send somebody with the photographs. / Concerning the photographs I find the one en profil very good, the one from the two en face pretty well, but the one which I enclose to this [not included herewith] I beg you not to sell, as it has an expression not agreeable. I showed the photographs to my friends here, and they all agree with me, that the one en profil is a very good one, but they all say that it would be a great advantage if you could manage to put away the hands, which disturbs very (?)seriously. I would be glad could you do so, or make only the first. Please send me, as soon as you can, two dozen of the photographs, one of those en profil and one dozen of those en face (????) I kept here. I believe the copies will please very many in Germany, and, I think you should send them to the different large places in Germany to be sold. I would I help you (sic) in any way, I shall be pleased to do so. Excuse my bad english and believe me yours truly Clara Schumann. Adress (sic): Berlin 11, in den Zelten.'

Bosqui, Edward.
1877. [San Francisco: Edward Bosqui, 1877]. San Francisco: John Windle, 1980. Folio, [64] pp. 10 color plates with text. A fine copy in sheets and portfolio as issued. § Limited to 40 copies for sale in sheets; this exact facsimile of the first California ampelography to show the grapes in superb color printing by the renowned printer Bosqui was reissued by San Francisco printers and binders from one of the few extant perfect copies (now at the Lilly Library). It is the rarest of American color plate books and this wonderfully accurate facsimile has an introduction by Kevin Starr. The edition was not completed and only 65 sets were released (of which 25 were bound). Zamorano Select (2010) 34A writes that "in his valuable introduction to the Windle facsimile" Kevin Starr provides historical background for the original edition. "Both as a work on viticulture and as a color-plate book, 'Grapes and Grape Vines of California' was an unprecedented achievement for a California press" as indeed was the facsimile which was so impressive that Harcourt Brace Jovanovich reissued it in a reduced format trade edition that went through two large printings before being remaindered.

CESNOLA, General Louis Palma Di.
London: John Murray, 1877. London: John Murray,, 1877. Large octavo (224 x 144 mm). Near-contemporary green morocco, raised bands, gilt titles and motifs on spine, gilt Anthemion motif roll borders on boards and turn-ins, edges gilt, marbled endpapers. 60 numbered plates, 2 maps and numerous in-text illustrations. Minor scuffing to extremities mostly; a fine copy. First edition of this controversial work on Cypriot antiques by Luigi Palma di Cesnola (1832-1904) an Italian-American soldier, diplomat, and amateur archaeologist. He was United States consul at Larnaca in Cyprus from 1865 to 1877, a time during which he carried out extensive excavations and uncovered a large quantity of antiquities. The collection was purchased by the newly expanded Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 1872, and Cesnola became the first director in 1879, until his death. But while Cesnola received honorary degrees from Columbia and Princeton universities, a knightly order from the king of Italy, and membership in various learned societies for his work, the ethics of 19th-century archaeological research, or lack thereof, were sowing seeds of discord for future generations. Indeed, in 2006, The Cyprus Museum held an exhibition titled History Lost about the illicit trade of antiques around the world. According to the exhibition, "the destruction of the cultural heritage" started when Cesnola "pillaged a number of unexcavated sites and collected over 35,000 objects, generally without permission from Ottoman authorities" for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum. In his haste, "five thousand … [Click Below for Full Description]

Etat : Très bon. 9 importants volumes in-4 reliure demi chagrin à coins, plats et gardes marbrés. 3000 fig. dessinées par Sellier et gravées par Rapine. Publié de 1877 à 1919. Ce considérable travail fait référence dans le domaine des antiquités grecques et romaines. Bel ensemble. A.Ph. A partir de 1877 et avec régularité jusqu'en 1919, parait chez Hachette, le Dictionnaire des Antiquités grecques et romaines, le fameux "Daremberg", du nom de son premier auteur et concepteur, Charles Daremberg. L'entreprise, à laquelle collaborent tous les plus grands noms de la science française, se situent dans un contexte européen de rivalités autour des "Sciences de l'Antiquité", alors considérées comme référence pour juger de la qualité de l'Université. Or en ce domaine, les maîtres sont les Allemands, depuis qu'ils ont refondé, en 1810, l'Université de Berlin, pièce essentielle à leurs yeux du redressement de la Prusse contre l'invasion napoléonienne. La "science de l'Antiquité", l'Altertumswissenchaft, telle qu'elle est élaborée par les grands philologues et historiens allemands comme Welcker, Boeckh, Droysen ou Mommsen, est même considérée comme une arme qui fait la supériorité des élites d'outre-Rhin et qui explique, pour une part, la défaite française de 1870-1871. C'est pourquoi les Français feront le "voyage d'Allemagne", dans les années qui suivent, pour se mettre à l'école de la science allemande de l'Antiquité et … [Click Below for Full Description]

On May 8, 1877, Frank Starr's American Novels had ended with No. 221. Two days later the first number of Frank Starr's New York Library appeared. This was a large quarto, the largest of any of the Beadle broad-leaves except the Fireside Library. It was 12 7/8 by 9 inches when untrimmed, and usually contained 32 pages, rarely more or less. It had no wrappers, but the first page carried the title of the series and a large woodcut illustration . The text was printed in three columns of rather small type, the size varying, at first, with the length of the story, which usually ran to 60,000 or 75,000 words. Perhaps this form of publication of Western stories was an experiment which Beadle did not wish to claim until it had been tried out, for the publishers were given as Frank Starr & Co. Their address was 41 Platt Street, which actually was the side entrance to the house of Beadle at 98 William Street and just around the corner. This is one of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kanagaki, Robun ; Kanagaki, Kumataro
Kaichinsha Meiji 10-11 [1877-1878], Tokyo. A set of thirty consecutive issues of `Robun Chinpo`, from the founding of the magazine to the thirtieth issue, bound in three volumes (November 28, Meiji 10 [1877], to November 16, Meiji 11 [1878]). `Robun Chinpo`, the famous magazine by author and journalist Kanagaki Robun (1829_1894), skillfully conveyed the Japanese culture and social conditions of the time to readers, and focussed heavily on literature and customs. The magazine included many articles on cats, perhaps because Robun was known to have a soft spot for the furry creatures. In this set, issues eight and nine are titled `Hyaku Neko Gafu` (`Album of One Hundred Cats`), and are dedicated solely to illustrations of cats by Hiroshige III and articles on cats. The illustrated wrappers of the issues were designed by Kawanabe Kyosai, and issues 1-4 include several illustrations by the famous artist. While the magazine was published in a total of 34 issues, consecutive runs as long as this are scarce. Re-bound, wrappers worn and a little stained, some chipping to extremities. Slight loss to upper edge of upper wrapper of v.3. Handwritten title slips to v.1-2, that of v.3 missing. Occasional light foxing and stains to text. Some discolouration, tears, and chips to leaf extremities. Original wrappers bound-in. Very good to near fine. 3 v. Each issue with 10 to 15 leaves. Text in Japanese. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

James Mason Hutchings (1820-1902) was one of the many Englishmen that came to California in 1849 for the Gold Rush. He made his fortune in mining and was one of the early promoters of the wonders of Yosemite Valley and the National Park. As a businessman, he established a hotel in the valley floor and, after named as a State Park in 1864, he claimed land under preemption laws. He lost his claim and was banished from the valley in 1875. He settled in San Francisco promoting and operating a tourist agency and leading trips as a Yosemite guide. This travel guide is one of several books that he wrote over the years on Yosemite and the Western slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
