        The Ring of the Nibelungen

      London: Schott, 1877. First Edition. 1/2 cloth. Near fine. 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.

        The Gold Regions of South Eastern Africa.

      London: Edward Stanford, & Cape Colony: J. W. C. Mackay,, 1877. Accompanied by Biographical Sketch of the Author. Octavo. Original diagonal-ribbed green cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, decorative panel in black to covers enclosing gilt vignette of a zebra to front, top edge untrimmed. Mounted photographic frontispiece, 3 sepia-tinted mounted plates, folding facsimile of a letter, large folding map in end-pocket as issued, wood-engravings to the text. Contemporary pencilled ownership inscription and later inscription in ink to front free endpaper. Spine gently rolled, the headcap a little nicked, light cockling and marking to boards, lower outer corner of front board worn, title-page come loose from bottom cord, several leaves slightly chipped or nicked along top or fore edges where clumsily opened, the text never affected. 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.

Addressed in secretarial hand to Rabbi Dr. Adolf Kurrein in Linz, Austria. <I>“Linz”</I> postal marking on verso to the right of flap engraved in blue: <I>“Holy Land / Sir Moses Montefiore, Bart.”</I> Flap sealed with depiction of Montefiore’s Coat of Arms. Stains and minor wear. Very good condition.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br />

A patent issued to Edward Longstreth of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for “Improvement in Car-Wheels”, attached by red silk ribbons threaded through grommets to a detailed drawing of the improvement, a printed one page description followed by a blank parchment page. Patent number 187,978. Areas of light toning, red seal torn but complete, else fine condition.Specification of the patent reads in part, “The object of my invention is to prevent the soft mud or dirt that gathers on the inside of city passenger car-wheels from dropping into the joint or space between the hub and the journal-box, as is now the case in all such cars, thereby causing great friction and wear to the journals. / By reference to the accompanying drawing it will be seen that I construct a thin projecting flange…on the part that adjoins the box…[so that] a groove or receptacle…is formed in which deposits are received and are conducted clear of the box while standing, and are by centrifugal force thrown off while running.”The West Philadelphia Passenger Railway Company was incorporated in 1857 and was the first streetcar line to receive a charter to operate in the city of Philadelphia. Its horse cars, which originally ran between 41st and Haverford and 66th and Vine, made possible the development of the Haddington neighborhood. It may also have been the first streetcar line to use self-propelled vehicles â€

"Freud's second piece of student research, on the function of the large Reissner cells in the spinal cord of the primitive fish Petromyzon, was assigned to him by Professor Ernst Brücke, head of the Institute of Physiology in Vienna, where Freud had been admitted in the fall of 1876. Freud showed that the Reissner cells 'gave rise to the root-fibres of the posterior roots' (Standard edition III, p. 228). Freud's investigation of the Reissner cells appeared in print three months before the publication of his first original piece of student research, on the gonadic structure of the male eel" (Norman).

Publisher's blue cloth, lettered in gilt on the upper cover, rebacked to style, patterned endpapers. Some soiling and chips at edges of text and plates. Else very good. Provenance: Willie White (period presentation inscriptions and use as an album amicorum on verso of plates and on blanks). Includes accounts of commerce in Kansas City and an historical essay stating: "We cannot make a Venice of Kansas city. Why hide her homeliness? Why strive to conceal her plainness? She must stand for the present, not draped in stately toga, standing in graceful pose on marble pedestal, but in the practical garb of labor, with hands stained by enterprising toil." The views are wonderful examples of American lithography in the West and include a general view of Kansas City, a bird's-eye view, and images of noted public buildings and businesses. A rare item. Not in Streeter, Graff, Deák, or Reps. OCLC cites eight complete copies, including Yale, Kansas City Public Library, State Historical Society of Missouri, and the University of Missouri; an incomplete copy is located at the Clements Library. HOWES K15a.

        A Journal of a Whaling Voyage on Board Ship Dauphin, of Nantucket, Composed by Charles Murphey, 3d Mate, on the Voyage.

      Mattapoisett, MA: Atlantic Publishing Co., 1877. sep 22 2017. 39 pp. b/w wood engravings. This work recounts the rescue of survivors from the whale ship "Essex" (which had been sunk by a whale). It is unusual because the entire account is given in rhymed quatrains. According to the note in Forster's bibliography, “Dauphin, Captain Zimri Coffin, sailed on 4 Sept. 1820, returning in July 1823. Voyage included Galapagos and Hawaiian Islands (1822). Poem recounts the finding of boat from the "Essex" with two survivors aboard. An officer list also provided.”—Forster. At least two editions of this work exist, but this one is especially gussied up, being bound in full crimson leather with the title "Whaling Journal" stamped on the front cover, and all edges gilt. See Forster 71. Jenkins p. 129. A very good copy, bound in original printed wrappers.
