Box and wrappers very slightly worn. Minor wear; light uniform browning, very slightly heavier to edges. In very good condition overall. First Edition. McCorkle, p. 311. Hofmann, pp. 156-157. Fuld, p. 553. Sonneck Orchestral Music, p. 55. Hoboken 4,100. "The Second Symphony in D op.73, composed less than a year after the completion of the First, is often described as its sunny counterpart. The work indeed radiates a warmth and tunefulness absent in parts of the earlier work. But as Brahms himself acknowledged, the Second Symphony also has a 'melancholy' side. The lyrical opening theme of the first movement unravels almost at once into a dark passage for timpani and trombones. The voice of melodic continuity is reasserted often in this movement, however, first by the violin melody that follows the unravelling and again by the second group and the large coda. The pensive slow movement, in B major and in a modified sonata form, is dominated by a motivically rich, metrically ambiguous main theme remarkable for its combination of tunefulness and developing variation." "The second half of the symphony distinctly brightens in mood, although it too contains sombre moments - often involving the trombones - that evoke the expressive world of the first two movements.

Rattray, Wilbert
1878. Folio, 38 by 28 cm. 96 pages of original botanical or floral artwork mounted onto the pages of the album. Most pages are devoted to a single subject, which is generally a one flower or plant, with multiple depictions of the plant. Thus we are shown the flower, stem, and/or leaves from various angles, or we might be given various examples of any of these plant parts. Clearly the purpose was to inspire the designer as well as provide a handy reference for verisimilitude as he was working on an actual ornament design. It is probable that all the artwork was done by one hand, as there is a coherence in the execution and style. We think the artist is likely to have been a Wilbert Rattray, whose card is mounted onto the corner of the FFEP, but of course we can't be sure of this, and we assume that Mr. Rattray was employed by Brown Brothers of Glasgow and Edinburgh, whose name and address is stamped several times in the album. Brown Brothers was clearly a major furniture-maker of the day. As evidence of this, it is known that the firm exhibited at the 1878 Paris Exposition. Also 21 pages of neatly handwritten notes, presumably by the hand of Rattway, describing the plants shown on the plates with an eye on their pertinence to furniture and other decorative ornament. One page of an incomplete penciled index in the back. Condition: cover is moderately soiled, with minor blistering of the cloth. Scattered light foxing. Half Morocco. Pebbled cloth on boards.

Nathaniel Hawthorne
James Osgood and Company, late Tickner and Feilds, 1878. Excellent antique condition. Light wear on leather corners but no fraying. The second edition of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic 1850 novel, often considered one of the first truly great writings in American history. Printed in1878. The title page has the red letter. The book is in remarkably great shape for 141 years, The text is strong, the binding secure, the paper thick and the illustrations are a work of art and still have the protective tissues over them(see sample photo. I can email/text more, but the ebay listing is limited) No major tears or bends except the corner of the interior paisley back cover page. (see photo), The preface page has one small stain as does the index page (smaller). All in all, the book is in beautiful condition.The gilded spine that remains bright and clean. Very rare. I have searched the internet and have not found one like it. Ask as many questions as you like. I am not a book appraiser, so I really don't know what to look for. Hate so much to give this up, but my grandchildrens' college fund will benefit.
