        Virgin Soil].

      Gerhard Leipzig 1877 - Octavo (18.5 x 12 cm), two parts in one book. 283, 244 pp. Contemporary half-sheep over marble boards, spine with raised bands, gilt ruled. Fine copy of the rare first edition in book form of Turgenev's last and longest novel. It was this work, the last of Turgenev's novel, Virgin Soil, that established the writer as a global political and literary authority. In it, the psychological depth combined with the vivid descriptions of the desolate Russian countryside and its rural villages lend the novel a photographic quality not present in his earlier work - a harshness and rythm which is the sign of Turgenev's ultimate artistic maturity. Virgin Soil offers a complex and careful examination of the political unrest of Turgenev's times. If in Fathers and Sons Turgenev tactfully examined the nature of nihilist theories in the young generation, in Virgin Soil the writer confronts the full force of populism, a radicalised and highly politicized offspring of nihilism. No other copies of this edition were traced in the auctions since 1994. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [Kutztown], Pennsylvania: Keystone State Normal School, 1877. Near Fine. 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. Contained in three contemporary blank books. Although not clearly identified the name "Caterina Rocquerina" (about whom we can find nothing) appears in the hand of the author, although it may also refer to a friend, or could be a nickname.Three manuscript volumes as follows.1. 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. Curiously, the white portions of the marbled paper have been filled with hard-to-decipher pencil notations, some possibly in Latin. 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.

        L'Art arabe d'après les monuments du Kaire depuis le VIIe siècle jusqu'à la fin du XVIIIe.

      Paris Morel 1877 - Four volumes comprising 3 folio volumes of lithographs and 1 text volume, 4to. pp. viii, 296; viii; viii; viii. Illustrated with 200 lithographs plates, 130 in colour, 48 tinted; text volume with 34 plates and 73 text illustrations; 5 plates smaller and mounted to size, scattered light foxing. Modern dark blue half morocco gilt, marbled sides, a very good, attractive set. One of the most important books on Islamic art and architecture, focusing on monuments in Egypt. Emile Prisse d'Avennes, orientalist & Muslim convert, obsessive in his attention to detail, was, after Champollion, the greatest pre-twentieth century Egyptologist. A French nobleman by birth, though impoverished, Prisse d'Avennes seems to have spent his life in the pursuit of the exotic. After a period fighting for Greek independence he travelled to India, a journey that prefigured his extensive Middle Eastern travels, which during the next 40 years took him to Palestine, Syria, Sudan, Ethiopia, Arabia, Persia, and most importantly Egypt and Algeria where he lived. Like Coste, Prisse d'Avennes worked for the Viceroy Mohammed Ali, though he quarrelled with Mohammed Ali subsequently and left his service. In 1860, Prisse d'Avennes returned to France with the fruits of his travels: 300 folio drawings, 400 metres of bas-reliefs, 150 photographs of important architectural details, 150 sketches, and daguerrotypes and numerous plans, details and elevations copied on the scene; he also returned with 29 skulls from ancient mummies, to each of which he had succeeded in ascribing a date, name and function. Until his death in 1877 this wealth of material was to occupy him completely as he sought to organise it for publication. Teams of artists, trained specifically for the purpose, attested to the 'constant and jealous attention' he lavished on his work, the result of which is this majestic and important book. Many of the examples produced have since disappeared, so the importance of the book, which post-dates the Description de l'Egypte by 6 decades and can be seen in some ways as a commentary upon it, cannot be underestimated.

        Arctic Expedition, 1875-6. Journals and proceedings of the Arctic Expedition, 1875-6, under the command of Captain Sir George S. Nares, R.N., K.C.B. . Presented to both Houses of Parliament by command of Her Majesty, 1877.

      London H. M. S. O 1877 - First edition. Folio, viii, 484pp., 16 folding maps, 16 plates, illustrations in the text, contemporary blue half roan, marbled boards, lightly faded, neat restoration to extremities, an excellent copy. One of the most valuable sources for the history of exploration in northern Canada. The Nares expedition, so called after its commander George Nares (1831-1915), sailed in two ships, HMS Alert and HMS Discovery, in late May of 1875, in quest of the North Pole. The ships reached Lady Franklin Bay on North Ellesmere Island and the Alert went on to reach the extreme north of the island, the highest latitude that had yet been reached by a ship. In April 1876, three separate sledge parties set out but the men showed serious signs of scurvy and several members died. Nares was forced to abandon the expedition and returned to England in September that year. Despite the difficulties faced by the expedition, it did produce important scientific results including a study of Inuit dog disease and a volume of physical observations. The Nares expedition is one of the best documented Arctic expeditions, with eight Parliamentary Blue Books alone devoted to it between 1875 and 1878. Arctic explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson wrote "[The Arctic Blue Books] are beyond comparison the most important tool of knowledge in this field ." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [Kutztown], Pennsylvania: Keystone State Normal School, 1877. Near Fine. 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.

Although not clearly identified the name "Caterina Rocquerina" (about whom we can find nothing) appears in the hand of the author, although it may also refer to a friend, or could be a nickname.Three manuscript volumes as follows.1. 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. Curiously, the white portions of the marbled paper have been filled with hard-to-decipher pencil notations, some possibly in Latin. 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.
