Manuscript text of a thesis on Teaching English to German Children with additional essays, lesson plans, and detailed financial accounts by a female language teacher.

Miscellaneous Essays. Teaching English to German Children. Thesis submitted to the State Board of Examiners at the Keystone State Normal School. May 31, 1877. Quarto. Red half calf gilt and textured papercovered boards. Title page detached but present, light rubbing, near fine. The title essay or thesis consists of 68 pages. Neatly handwritten and easily readable, it contains approximately 18,000 words, with chapters and sections clearly delineated. There are additional essays covering 54 pages and comprising an additional approximately 14,000 words (for a total of 122 pages and approximately 32,000 words). The secondary essays cover a variety of subjects including The Learned Profession, The Art of Pleasing, Saying No, It Takes Two to Quarrel, A Habit of Meditation and others.2. Financial Notes [1]. Small quarto. Red quarter calf and marbled paper covered boards. Slight rubbing, the final flyleaf has been trimmed and both that page and the rear pastedown have been used by someone else (a young male, likely) to trace his hand and the hand of his girlfriend, else near fine. Contains very detailed financial notes from 1876 to 1891 by the same person who wrote the essays, detailing pretty much every penny she spent and earned. The locations of her bank accounts seem to be from around Allentown, Pennsylvania, and many of her expenditures were for school supplies. Among her other expenditures are clothing that included dresses, silk, lace and other textiles.3. Financial Notes [2]. Small quarto. Black quarter calf and marbled paper covered boards. Slight rubbing, the final flyleaf and last leaf of text (likely blank) have been removed, near fine. A few additional leaves have been laid in.

Roughly the first half of the volume consists of 46 pages of lesson plans handwritten by the same person in French (except for the headers which are in English) comprising approximately 12,000 words. The second half of the volume again comprises very detailed financial notes from 1895 and 1896. In addition to her monthly expenses, there are pages for home improvements and gifts and contributions. Near the end are the names and addresses of two friends.A small but interesting archive of material created by a female teacher in Pennsylvania.

        The Amateur Gardener. Second Edition (greatly enlarged) of the Fruit, Flower, and Vegetable Garden

      E.S Wigg and Sons, Adelaide 1877 - Duodecimo, 132, [4] (index), 8 (advertisements) pages. Original quarter contrasting (red and green) cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and front cover; covers a little rubbed nd bumped at the extremities, with minor restoration to the joints, and slight wear to the head of the spine; cloth a little marked and flecked; front flyleaf a well-matched replacement; first and last leaves offset; occasional light scattered foxing; a very good copy. A rarity: this is only the second copy we have seen in over 40 years, and Trove records only five institutional holdings. Ernst Bernhard Heyne (1825-1881), botanist and horticulturist, 'was a prodigious writer. Though overshadowed by von Mueller, his botanical and horticultural work greatly contributed to the early development of [the] two colonies' of Victoria and South Australia (Australian Dictionary of Biography, making a rare error in not recording accurately this edition). Ferguson 10397; Crittenden 53 (with a lengthy commentary on its importance). The first edition was published as 'The Fruit, Flower and Vegetable Garden' in 1871 (Ferguson 10396, recording only one copy; Crittenden 47, 'not sighted'; Trove records four copies).

        The New Republic; or, Culture, Faith, and Philosophy in an English Country House

      London: Chatto and Windus, 1877, 1877. First edition. Sadleir 1527; NCBEL III, 1066; cf. Wolff 4415, who had the third edition. Edges a little worn; hinges on volume one starting, but sound; very good copy.. 2 vols, 8vo, original decorated gray cloth, gilt decorations and lettering. 36-page publisher's catalogue dated March 1877 in volume one. The first novel by William Hurrell Mallock, a famous Peacockian roman à clef, written while Mallock was an undergraduate at Oxford, which brings together under one roof several poets, philosophers, critics, and dilettantes to discuss the problems of religion, society and the arts. Many of the characters are thinly based on well-known persons, including Huxley, Ruskin, Carlyle, Arnold, Pater, Ouida, and Violet Fane (to whom the novel is dedicated). "The most successful conversation novel of the period . . . Mallock's epigrammatic satire on liberalism, radicalism and cant plays freely over the ensuing talk and talkers. It ends inconclusively with the half-hearted verdict that things are best as they are." - Sutherland, Victorian Fiction. Ink signature dated 1877 in the top margin of the title-page.

        Dictionnaire Des Antiquités Grecques et Romaines D'après Les Textes et Les Monuments. Complet En 9 Volumes

      Librairie Hachette et Cie, Paris 1877 - 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 contribuer ainsi à préparer la revanche. Le Dictionnaire des Antiquités grecques et romaines trouve sa source dans ces luttes politiques et scientifiques. Il possède donc une incontestable valeur patrimoniale, et doit être mis en regard de tous les autres grands Dictionnaires de l'Antiquité qui paraissent en Europe au même moment. Les Allemands lui donnent en effet la réplique dès 1894 avec la monumentale Realencyclopädie der Altertumswissenchaft, dont quatre-vingts volumes sont parus à ce jour. En Italie paraît, à partir de 1886 le Dizionario epigrafico di antichità romana, dont la publication se poursuit. Les Anglo-saxons dans le même temps font paraître plusieurs dictionnaires concernant les champs de l'Antiquité classique. Le "Daremberg", pour toutes ces raisons, se présente comme un monument d'une très haute tenue scientifique. Chaque article est rédigée par le meilleur spécialiste de la question ; la référence à toutes les sources figure en bas de page ; les débats les plus actuels ne sont pas ignorés. Dans le registre des institutions, des techniques, de l'histoire des religions en particulier, il constitue alors une référence. Pour la maîtrise des sources textuelles, il reste inégalé. Bien évidemment, son contenu mérite d'être mis à jour en raison des découvertes et des progrès dans les domaines de l'archéologie, de l'épigraphie, de la numismatique. Par ailleurs, les problématiques se sont renouvelées profondément grâce aux apports de la sociologie et de l'anthropologie, dont les spécialistes de l'Antiquité ont intégré les méthodes.(Pascal Payen)

        Der Kommandant von Kalymnos. Ein Mysterium aus dem Rokoko der Levante.

      8. 60 S. OLwd. EA. Nicht bei WG II. Mit den beiden Tafeln. Als Manuskript gedruckt bei Paul Kaltschmid, Wien. Eines von 100 Expl. - Leichte Gbrsp., Ebd. etw. fleckig, minimale Lichtschatten. Schönes Expl. - Herzmanovsky-Orlando, (1877 - 1954), studierte nach dem Besuch des Theresianums in Wien 1896-1903 Architektur an der dortigen TH und machte wahrscheinlich 1903 in München die Bekanntschaft Alfred Kubins, durch den er u.a. Franz Blei, Thomas Mann, Karl Wolfskehl sowie Oscar A. H. Schmitz und Gustav Meyrink kennenlernte, die seine Geisteshaltung nachhaltig beeinflußten. 1913/14 unternahm Herzmanovsky-Orlando ausgedehnte Reisen, die ihn u.a. nach England, Italien, Ägypten und Zypern führten, beendete 1916 seine Tätigkeit als Architekt sowie in der Zentralkommission für Denkmalpflege und übersiedelte 1917 aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nach Meran, wo er sich, finanziell unabhängig, ganz seinem literarischen und künstlerischen Schaffen widmen konnte. Neben einem umfassenden graphischen Werk erschien 1928 sein selbstillustrierter Roman "Der Gaulschreck im Rosennetz. Eine Wiener Schnurre aus dem modernen Barock", die neben einem Privatdruck die einzige Buchveröffentlichung zu seinen Lebzeiten war. Er schrieb phantastische Erzählwerke, u.a. sein Hauptwerk, den utopischen Roman "Das Maskenspiel der Genien" (1958), parodistische Dramen wie "Kaiser Joseph und die Bahnwärterstochter", ferner Pantomimen und Ballette sowie zahlreiche Erzählungen, die dem anekdotischen Umfeld seines Bekanntenkreises gewidmet sind. Bekannt wurde sein Werk erst durch die stark bearbeitete Ausgabe Friedrich Torbergs, die 1957-63 in vier Bänden erschien. (DBE)

        The First Four Symphonies, Opus 68, 73, 90, 98, The Orchestral Scores.

      Berlin: N. Simrock, 1877-86. The first four symphonies. Opus 68, 73, 90, 98, the orchestral scores, Quarto, bound in full morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels, inner dentelles, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. First Symphony (plate 7957), is first printing, conforming to McCorkle; the balance appear to be early printings. In near fine condition. Rare and desirable. Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68, is a symphony written by Johannes Brahms. Brahms spent at least fourteen years completing this work, whose sketches date from 1854. Brahms himself declared that the symphony, from sketches to finishing touches, took 21 years, from 1855 to 1876. The premiere of this symphony, conducted by the composer's friend Felix Otto Dessoff, occurred on 4 November 1876, in Karlsruhe, then in the Grand Duchy of Baden. Brahms began composing a D minor symphony in 1854, but this work underwent radical change before much of it was finally recast as his first Piano Concerto, also in D minor.[4] The long gestation of the C minor Symphony which would eventually be his first, may be attributed to two factors. First, Brahms' self-critical fastidiousness led him to destroy many of his early works. Second, there was an expectation from Brahms' friends and the public that he would continue "Beethoven's inheritance" and produce a symphony of commensurate dignity and intellectual scope - an expectation that Brahms felt he could not fulfill easily in view of the monumental reputation of Beethoven. It was probably 1868 when Brahms finally realized what would become the final structure of his first Symphony. In September of that year, he sent a card to his lifelong friend Clara Schumann sketching the Alphorn tune which would emerge in the symphony's Finale, along with the famous message "Thus blew the shepherd's horn today!" Despite the evidence of the work's development, the work would not premiere for eight more years, in 1876. The value and importance of Brahms' achievements were recognized by Vienna's most powerful critic, the staunchly conservative Eduard Hanslick. The conductor Hans von Bulow was moved in 1877 to call the symphony "Beethoven's Tenth", due to perceived similarities between the work and various compositions of Beethoven. It is often remarked that there is a strong resemblance between the main theme of the finale of Brahms' First Symphony and the main theme of the finale of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Also, Brahms uses the rhythm of the "fate" motto from the opening of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. This rather annoyed Brahms; he felt that this amounted to accusations of plagiarism, whereas he saw his use of Beethoven's idiom in this symphony as an act of conscious homage. Brahms himself said, when comment was made on the similarity with Beethoven, "any ass can see that." Nevertheless, this work is still sometimes (though rarely) referred to as "Beethoven's Tenth". However, Brahms' horn theme, with the "fate" rhythm, was noted in a letter to Clara Schumann (dated 1868), overheard in an alphorn's playing.

        The First Four Symphonies, Opus 68, 73, 90, 98, The Orchestral Scores.

      Berlin: N. Simrock, 1877-86. The first four symphonies. Opus 68, 73, 90, 98, the orchestral scores, Quarto, bound in full morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels, inner dentelles, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. First Symphony (plate 7957), is first printing, conforming to McCorkle; the balance appear to be early printings. In near fine condition. Rare and desirable. Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68, is a symphony written by Johannes Brahms. Brahms spent at least fourteen years completing this work, whose sketches date from 1854. Brahms himself declared that the symphony, from sketches to finishing touches, took 21 years, from 1855 to 1876. The premiere of this symphony, conducted by the composer's friend Felix Otto Dessoff, occurred on 4 November 1876, in Karlsruhe, then in the Grand Duchy of Baden. Brahms began composing a D minor symphony in 1854, but this work underwent radical change before much of it was finally recast as his first Piano Concerto, also in D minor.[4] The long gestation of the C minor Symphony which would eventually be his first, may be attributed to two factors. First, Brahms' self-critical fastidiousness led him to destroy many of his early works. Second, there was an expectation from Brahms' friends and the public that he would continue "Beethoven's inheritance" and produce a symphony of commensurate dignity and intellectual scope - an expectation that Brahms felt he could not fulfill easily in view of the monumental reputation of Beethoven. It was probably 1868 when Brahms finally realized what would become the final structure of his first Symphony. In September of that year, he sent a card to his lifelong friend Clara Schumann sketching the Alphorn tune which would emerge in the symphony's Finale, along with the famous message "Thus blew the shepherd's horn today!" Despite the evidence of the work's development, the work would not premiere for eight more years, in 1876. The value and importance of Brahms' achievements were recognized by Vienna's most powerful critic, the staunchly conservative Eduard Hanslick. The conductor Hans von Bulow was moved in 1877 to call the symphony "Beethoven's Tenth", due to perceived similarities between the work and various compositions of Beethoven. It is often remarked that there is a strong resemblance between the main theme of the finale of Brahms' First Symphony and the main theme of the finale of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Also, Brahms uses the rhythm of the "fate" motto from the opening of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. This rather annoyed Brahms; he felt that this amounted to accusations of plagiarism, whereas he saw his use of Beethoven's idiom in this symphony as an act of conscious homage. Brahms himself said, when comment was made on the similarity with Beethoven, "any ass can see that." Nevertheless, this work is still sometimes (though rarely) referred to as "Beethoven's Tenth". However, Brahms' horn theme, with the "fate" rhythm, was noted in a letter to Clara Schumann (dated 1868), overheard in an alphorn's playing.

        [BOTANY] Holograph letter of William Howitt re. propagation of Eucalyptus globulus in North America

      Single sheet, 210 x 270 mm, folded, manuscript in ink over [4] pp octavo, in the hand of writer and traveller William Howitt (father of A.W. Howitt), headed 'Vielenheim, Bruneck, Tyrol, Sept. 30, 1877', to an unnamed correspondent (evidently a natural scientist in Connecticut, U.S.A.), discussing the idea of propagating Eucalyptus globulus in North America, the success the plant has had in helping to eradicate malaria in marshy regions of the Mediterranean littoral, and its potential as a medicinal agent; signed at the foot 'Yours faithfully, William Howitt'; clean and legible, but fragile, with some tears along the original fold lines. 'Dear Sir ... I reply to you respecting the Eucalyptus globulus. I'm afraid it can not be grown as far north as Connecticut ... [but] it would be a great thing to grow it in your Southern States, in Virginia, the Carolinas, Florida etc, where it would flourish, and its leaves might become an article of commerce for the Northern States.' '... I am well acquainted with the Eucalyptus in its native Australia, and my son, who lives in Australia, in conjunction with Baron von Müller, the government Botanist of Victoria, the introducer of it with Algeria where it grows to a great extent and has produced the most partial benefits, not only vanishing malaria, but in inducing rain...';

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1877 : 1877 Original Wisden Rebound with Covers

      1877. This 1877 Wisden was rebound a little time ago in brown boards with a green leather spine and corners. The original wrappers have been preserved and are in excellent, unrestored, clean condition. There are are one or two small marks to the front and rear boards. The spine has the title and year in gilt and an old owner's initials at the base of the spine. Internally, the book is in fabulous condition. The wrappers are complete, unrestored with just the odd tiny mark. The remaining contents are complete, original, unmarked and in fine condition. I suspect that the book was rebound quite some time ago and as a result the original contents and wrappers have been brilliantly preserved. A really nice example.

        Sind Revisited: With notices of the Anglo-Indian Army; Railroads; Past, Present, and Future.

      Richard Bentley and Son, 1877., London: - 2 volumes. 8vo. xii, 343; iv, 331, [1] pp. Half-title (vol. I as called for). Dedication page to the memory of General Walter Scott, Bombay Engineers. Original mauve cloth stamped with black decorative pattern, gilt-stamped spines; neatly rebacked to match original, preserving original spines. Bookplates of George Merryweather. Very good. FIRST EDITION. This is essentially an annotated reprint of Burton’s 1851 book, Scinde, or the Unhappy Valley. For this edition he made a return pilgrimage back to the Karachi area on the coast of present day Pakistan. As with the first printing, this edition also includes the tale of the Persian girl (vol. I, pp. 119-123). The tale would be seemingly insignificant and yet Georgiana Stisted writes that the romance was true. Lovell seems to be correct in interpreting a poem written by Burton, previously unpublished, telling of the beauty and tragedy befalling this Persian princess. Lovell’s position is that the story is fiction and the poem seems to support that theory it is not autobiographical because Burton never visited Persia "or other places mentioned in the poem", nor was he old when he wrote the piece. Seemingly he was interested in the process of story-telling and adding elements that imitated a Persian classic tale, using their own traditions, ideals and consequences. See: Lovell, pp. 59-64. Farwell reports " there is an interesting footnote in Sind Revisited relating to Charles Darwin. Darwin’s Descent of Man had been published in 1871 and in the great controversy provoked by Darwin Burton was one of his defenders. Burton’s footnote says that ‘almost the only point on which I dare to differ with the learned Dr. Darwin’s theory of development’ is the question of female beauty among the races of man; Burton maintained that only white women are beautiful and appear so to all races." An unfortunate remark by Burton that is clearly false! Farwell continues with a more amusing tale of a conversation with an archbishop with whom he discussed Darwin’s theories. Writes Farwell, "Spotting some monkeys scampering about, the archbishop said, ‘Well Captain Burton, there are some of your ancestors.’ Burton [retorted], ‘Well, my lord, I at least have made some progress. But what about your lordship, who is descended from the angels?’" – Farwell, pp. 323-4. Casada 61; Penzer p. 94-95 note: Penzer erroneously records the title as "Scind" rather than the correct "Sind". See: Farwell, Burton, (1988), pp. 323-4. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Grapes and Grape Vines of California published under the auspices of the California State Vinicultural Association; oleographed by Wm. Harring from original water color drawings by Miss Hannah Millard.

      - San Francisco: Bosqui, 1877. Folio, 19 x 13 inches, a single plate (The Flame Tokay). With the overprinting of the Italian Swiss Colony imprint on the plate. In very good condition. A single plate from the masterpiece of California color printing which is perhaps the rarest and one of the most expensive American color plate books ever published. Fewer than 15 copies are known to exist (of which 6 are complete), as the book was not well subscribed when it was issued in parts and very few subscribers completed their sets. Copies are thought to have been destroyed in a fire at Bosqui's plant along with the original paintings. Italian Swiss Colony issued several of the plates as a promotional or advertising piece, presumably getting them from Bosqui's overstock when his edition failed to sell. Zamorano Select #34: "Both as a work on viticulture and as a color-plate book, Grapes and Grape Vines of California was was an unprecedented achievement for a California press."

      1877. 1 S. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten mit Dank "für Deine schöne Erinnerung an unseren lieben Breisgau" und mit "besten Glückwünschen zum neuen Jahr". - Adolf Kußmaul promovierte in Würzburg über "Untersuchungen über den Einfluß, welchen die Blutströmung auf die Bewegungen der Iris und andere Teile des Kopfes ausübt", habilitierte sich kurz darauf in Heidelberg und wurde Professor der Inneren Medizin in Erlangen, Freiburg i. B. und schließlich in Straßburg. Die 1874 von ihm beobachtete "große Atmung" bei Diabetes wurde später nach ihm "Kußmaulsche Atmung" genannt.
