         The Ring of the Nibelungen

      Schott, London 1877 - 1st collected edition in English, complete in 356 pages (a copy with less pages is missing something). The Rhein-Gold, The Walkyrie, Siegfried, and Dusk of the Gods, preceded in English only by the privately printed individual librettos (a hastily gathered, abridged assembly, of 238 pages total, published to secure copyright). Our edition (issued to accompany Wagner's conducting of the cycle in London) has all 4 parts with all the stage directions and dialogue. Contemporary half cloth, marbled boards, printed paper label, near fine, complete with the volume half-title, the 4 half-titles for the individual parts, and the coda (To Richard Wagner). Ex-Edw. Schuberth, with his company's oval stamp to the general half-title. The source was the prodigious German epic poem Das Nibelungen Lied, anonymously written by an unknown massive-aggressive in the 12th century about events in the 5th or 6th. It recounts the deeds of Siegfried the Dragon Slayer (the Germanator), his betrayal and murder, and the revenge of his wife Kriemhilda (the real heroine). In 1816 Professor of philology Karl Lachmann began a careful study of the 11 known, more or less complete, manuscripts, then ordered them chronologically, collated, corrected, translated and amalgamated them, to finally produce the version in Middle High German. It remains a foundational pillar of European literature, but it was Wagner (1813-1883) who transformed it into an opera (the only venue where people die of love) by first revisiting Lachmann, then brooding upon it, and finally escalating, the dramatic, harmonic, and most famously, the instrumental forces beyond any of his predecessors, setting a new and basic, though often ignored, challenge for his successors. The Ring Cycle exemplifies his theories, and it's conjoining with national epic poetry, was the appropriate agent for a masterwork. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Democratic Nominations, Nevada County, 1877 Broadside

      Grass Valley Daily Union Print. 1877. Broadside. Broadside on thick paper with red and blue text and blue border. Broadside measures 22" x 9". Broadside is in good condition with moderate foxing and soiling; three horizontal creases where once folded, all creases are very fragile; six closed tears or holes measuring less than ¼", some affecting content and 1 ½" tear on top right corner; heavy toning on verso. Broadside reads: "Democratic Nominations. Nevada County. For Joint Senator - 24th District (Sierra and Nevada Counties) , Niles Searls, of Nevada City. For Senator - 24th District (Nevada County) , Jno. C. Coleman, of Grass Valley…Election, Wednesday, Sept. 5th, 1877." In smaller print are nominations for assemblymen, sheriff, county clerk, superintendent of schools, district attorney, county treasurer, coroner, and lists of the precincts and officers of election and the county central committee. The towns in Nevada County are unequalled in gold rush history. The year this broadside was published the number of gold miners in the area had significantly dwindled, but businesses and neighborhoods continued to develop. The attention and interest in politics, as recorded on this broadside, confirms that Nevada County was still a happening place. The candidates for Senator and Joint Senator were Niles Searls and Jonathan C. Coleman. Niles Searls (1825-1907) was a prominent lawyer in Nevada City, in 1854 being elected District Attorney; he also served as the Chairman of the California Debris Commission and was appointed the 14th Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court in 1887. Jonathan Crisp Coleman, the president of the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad and the North Star Mine in Grass Valley was running for Senator of Nevada County. Searls and Coleman both left legacies in Nevada County. This broadside is a colorful and detailed piece of California history from Nevada County. No copies found in commerce or OCLC. .

         Sixteenth Amendment Convention. The National Woman Suffrage Association will hold its Tenth Annual Washington Convention ... All Woman Suffrage Associations and all friends of woman suffrage throughout the country who believe that it is the duty of Congress to submit a Sixteenth Amendment to the Federal Constitution prohibiting the several states from disfranchising United States citizens on account of sex, are cordially invited to send delegates and letters to this Convention ..

      [Washington?], 1877. 1p. handbill. Signed in print by Clemence S. Lozier, Susan B. Anthony, Isabella Beecher Hooker and Sara Andrews Spencer. Old folds. Scarce handbill announcing the Woman Suffrage Convention of 1878, which would result in the first Congressional bill to amend the Consitution to grant women the right to vote.The final paragraph reads: "Then let the free-born women citizens of this boasted Republic, defrauded of every right Man claims for himself, once more assemble under the shadow of the National Capitol, and demand in the sacred name of Liberty, an Amendment to the Constitution of the United States protecting the rights of women citizens."The January 1878 Tenth Annual Washington Convention would prove historic, with Senator Aaron A. Sargent first introducing to Congress a proposed amendment to the Constitution to grant women the right to vote. Sargent's bill calling for the amendment would be introduced unsuccessfully in Congress each year for the next forty years before his words ultimately became the 19th Amendment.This handbill inviting delegates to the Convention and outlining the NWSA goals is scarce, with only a single example recorded in OCLC (University of Rochester).

         Black Beauty: his grooms and companions The autobiography of a horse

      London: Jarrold and Sons,, [1877]. Translated from the original equine. Octavo. Original brown cloth, spine and front board lettered and decorated in black and gilt, rear board blocked in blind, brown endpapers (Carter's B binding), edges trimmed. Housed in a custom red morocco-backed slipcase and chemise. Housed in a custom dark red folding case, front cover with a panelled onlay of Black Beauty. Engraved frontispiece after C. Hewitt, 8 pp. publisher's ads at end. Rebacked with original spine laid down, tips restored, worn, inner hinges reinforced, occasional soiling, a well-read copy, good. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author in her own hand on the first blank, "For the Patients of the London Temperance Hospital with the Author's best wishes", and with a secondary ownership inscription ("Hughes") above. Conceivably this is John Hughes (1827–1896) who was treasurer of the London Temperance Hospital for about 25 years. A very apposite association: the London Temperance Hospital, in Hampstead Road, London, opened on 6 October 1873 by initiative of the National Temperance League, and was managed by a board of 12 teetotallers. Anna Sewell and her mother were both heavily involved in the temperance movement and the theme is strongly invoked in Black Beauty. This Victorian classic was the only book of its bedridden author, who died shortly after its publication, much too soon to appreciate its slowly accumulated worldwide success. Presentation or inscribed copies are understandably rare and the majority are not inscribed by the author herself, but by her mother Mary. In 1938 Carter distinguished three states of the binding: A with the same blocking as this, but all in gilt; B, as here, with the horse's head, titling, and the rustic portions of the decoration in black (Carter mistakenly describes the titling as gilt, which invariably leads to the B binding being described as a variant), the other parts being gilt; and C, blocked in black and gilt, with a much smaller horse's head gilt in a medallion, facing left, the same design as used for the later editions. Carter A and B are primary, and the earliest dated inscribed copies are Christmas 1877. Anna Sewell died on 25 April 1878.

         The Story of Sigurd the Volsung and the Fall of the Niblungs

      London, Ellis and White, 1877. Octavo, viii, 392 pages. Three-quarter dark blue morocco and cloth (with the stamp of Root & Son); spine gilt in compartments; sides ruled in gilt; top edge gilt; covers a little rubbed and sunned; one corner very lightly bumped and worn; old expert repair to first contents leaf; bookplate removed from front pastedown; minor signs of handling; in very good condition overall. With the ownership signature of T.G.H. Strehlow (Melbourne, 31 January 1945) on an early binder's blank. This provenance is significant, given that Strehlow was soon to begin work on his magnum opus, 'Songs of Central Australia' (1971). 'A dense, often bewilderingly literary work, with Greek and Norse mythological analogies, ["Songs"] seamlessly merged his own and his father's research into Arrernte sacred verse and totemic geography' ('Australian Dictionary of Biography'). Morris's epic would have been of interest to Strehlow both for its subject matter (the Volsung saga) and for its setting in an archaic loose epic metre. Strehlow invokes Morris explicitly at least once in 'Songs' (in the conclusion), and draws regularly on archaic verse forms and Norse legends in his exposition of the ceremonial verse of the Arrernte people.

         Black Beauty His Grooms and Companions. The autobiography of a horse. Translated from the original Equine by Anna Sewell.

      London Jarrold and Sons 1877 - First Edition Of "Black Beauty" in Original Cloth SEWELL, Anna. Black Beauty: His Grooms and Companions. The Autobiography of a Horse. Translated from the Original Equine by Anna Sewell. London: Jarrold & Sons, [1877]. First edition. Octavo (6 1/2 x 4 1/8 inches; 165 x 105 mm). viii [9]-247, [1], [8, ads]. Black and white wood-engraved frontispiece by C. Hewitt (included in pagination). Original publisher's cloth, Carter's variant "C" binding: green cloth blocked in black and gilt. Brown coated endpapers. Some slight rubbing at extremities and to gilt. Hairline crack to rear hinge with small piece of cord showing. Some mild foxing throughout. A contemporary ink inscription on front free endpaper dated 1878. Despite the minor faults mentioned, this is an exceptional copy of this enduring children's classic, not usually found in such nice condition. Housed in a custom morocco clamshell. "Sewell's only publication was Black Beauty, written intermittently from 1871 to 1877 at a time when her health further declined, and she was confined to the house and her sofa. In the early period of writing the novel she dictated to her mother from the sofa on which she lay; in 1876 she was able to write in pencil on slips of paper which her mother transcribed. The novel was sold to her mother's publishers, Jarrold & Sons, for an outright payment of £40 and published as Black Beauty: his grooms and companions; the autobiography of a horse, ‘Translated from the Original Equine, by Anna Sewell’, on 24 November 1877 when Anna was fifty-seven. Now a children's classic, the novel was originally written for those who worked with horses, ‘its special aim’, Sewell wrote, ‘being to induce kindness, sympathy, and an understanding treatment of horses’ (Mrs Bayly, 272). It has been seen as instrumental in leading to the abolition of the bearing-rein." (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). Carter, More Binding Variants, pp. 37-38. Wolff 6250.

Addressed in secretarial hand to Rabbi Dr. Adolf Kurrein in Linz, Austria. “Linz” postal marking on verso to the right of flap engraved in blue: “Holy Land / Sir Moses Montefiore, Bart.” Flap sealed with depiction of Montefiore’s Coat of Arms. Stains and minor wear. Very good condition.Signed by Montefiore in his 93rd year (he lived to 100). He and his brother-in-law, Nathan Mayer Rothschild, became business partners in the Rothschild banking business in London. Montefiore retired in 1824 at age 40. He was Sheriff of London from 1837-1838, the year he was knighted by Queen Victoria. In recognition of his services to humanitarian causes on behalf of the Jewish people, he received a baronetcy in 1846. The August 5, 1877, edition of the “Chicago Daily Tribune” reported that “Sir Moses Montefiore, of London, who is now in his 94th year, has offered to undertake a mission to secure an amelioration of the condition of the Jews of Morocco. Several years ago he made a visit to Palestine with a view to the observation of the condition of the Jews there.” His visit to Palestine in 1875 was his seventh and last trip to the Holy Land.Dr. Adolf Kurrein (1846-1919) was Rabbi of St. Pölten (1872), Linz (1872-1882), and Bielitz (1882-1888). In January 1877, just five months before this envelope was mailed, Kurrien married Jessie Loewe, daughter of Louis Loewe, Sir Moses Montefiore’s secretary.Louis Loewe (1809-1888) first met Sir Moses and Lady Montefiore in Rome in 1839. Sir Moses invited him to travel with them to the Holy Land. When, in 1840, Montefiore went on his Damascus expedition, Loewe accompanied him as his interpreter. Altogether, Loewe accompanied Sir Moses Montefiore on nine different philanthropic missions. When Jews’ College was opened in 1856, Loewe was nominated principal and when Sir Moses Montefiore opened a theological college at Ramsgate in 1869, he made his friend principal of that institution, which position Loewe retained until his death in 1888, three years after Montefiore died.

A good copy. First edition. Baines (1820-1875) was one of the pioneers of European exploration in the lands forming modern Zimbabwe, where he led an expedition in the 1860s to secure concessions for a gold-mining company from King Lobengula. Although the company in question failed to take advantage of the terms Baines extracted, this posthumously-edited account (Baines died at Durban in 1875) is considered a "most important work … [which] contains full information of every description upon the subject of the gold discoveries in Matabeleland and Mashonaland, with much curious knowledge of Africa … The author gives details of no less [sic] than nineteen routes from various places in South Africa to the newly discovered goldfields in the Transvaal and Lobengula's country, and there is a large map" (Mendelssohn). There is also big-game interest, with accounts of brushes with elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros, zebra, and lion.
