Mosè Bianchi (Monza 1840 - Monza 1904)
1878. Acquaforte, acquatinta e puntasecca misure: 300 x 388 Pittore e incisore italiano. Nel 1856 si iscrisse all'Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera. Allievo di Giuseppe Bertini, in questi anni strinse rapporti di amicizia con i compagni di corso: Filippo Carcano, Tranquillo Cremona, Federico Faruffini e Daniele Ranzoni, condividendo con essi, qualche anno dopo, lo studio milanese in via San Primo. Successivamente perfezionò le sue conoscenze artistiche a Venezia e a Parigi dove conobbe Mariano Fortuny. Esordì con quadri storici di soggetto romantico, per volgersi poi al genere e al paesaggio. La sua pittura parve assai rinnovatrice, per l'attenzione data agli effetti atmosferici e per la tecnica spigliata, in realtà più vicina a quella del Fortuny che a quella degli impressionisti. Egli realizzò circa settanta opere incise per le quali adotto soggetti simili a quelli presenti nei suoi dipinti ma con un interesso rivolto tanto al soggetto quanto alle potenzialità dei giochi chiaroscurali. Soggetto tratto da un'idea rivissuta dal pittore genovese Alessandro Magnasco. Sotto un ampio arco a tutto sesto si vede una figura stante, bianca su un fondo scuro, quasi un'apparizione, un fantasma; è in cima ad una grande scalinata sulla quale si trovano altre poche figure inginocchiate; in primo piano a sinistra altre figure di chierici e cavalieri fuggono. Al centro della composizione una figura avvolta da un sudario sembra uscire da una bara. Impressione eccellente, dal tratto deciso e neri intensi. Giochi chiaroscurali sottolineano l'effetto impressionistico che scaturisce soprattutto … [Click Below for Full Description]

Persien / Iran - Naser al-Din Schah (Nasreddin Schah), persischer Herrscher (1831-1896 ermordet).
1878. Aufgrund der guten Beziehungen des ersten Dolmetschers von Naser al-Din Schah, des Armeniers Mirza Dawud (David) Khan, zum österreichischen Hof in Wien und der Verbindungen seines ehemaligen Leibarztes, Jakob Eduard Polak, wurden auf der zweiten Europareise Naser al-Din Schahs österreichische Offiziere angeworben, die die Reorganisation der persischen Armee in Angriff nehmen sollten. Die Ankunft Naser al-Din Schahs in Wien am 5. Juli 1878 glich einem Volksfest. Johann Strauss Sohn hatte im Auftrag des Wiener Hofes eine persische Nationalhymne komponiert, um den Gast zur Weltausstellung 1873 standesgemäß empfangen zu können. Der österreichische Staatsmann, Freiherr Karl von Krauß (1789 Lemberg - Wien 1881) hatte in zwei Kabinetten 1851-1857 als Justizminister gedient und war sodann zum Präsidenten des Obersten Gerichts berufen worden. Er war einer der angesehensten, langdienenden hohen Beamten der Monarchie.

JOHNSTON, William Preston
New York: D. Appleton, 1878. 1878 1st ed Confederate General Albert Sidney Johnston Civil War TEXAS CSAAlbert Sidney Johnston was an American military general known for his roles in the Mexican American War and most notably the American Civil War. According to President Jefferson Davis, Johnston was the 'finest general officer in the Confederacy' before Robert E. Lee; Davis continued 'without doing injustice to the living, it may safely be said that our loss is irreparable." Interestingly, he was the highest-ranking officer to be killed in action during the entirety of the Civil War.In 1878, a life of Johnston was published, outlining the major events in the general's life. According to Eicher, this work "highlights Johnston's early life, career in the Black Hawk War, days at Jefferson Barracks, the Texas Revolution, the Mexican War years, and the his role in the Mormon Rebellion. The work attacks Grant and Confederates in dispute with Johnston. It remains valuable for its discussion of the general's antebellum life and for personal anecdotes."Item number: #8800 Price: $599JOHNSTON, William PrestonThe life of Gen.

Composto da Prefazione di VII facciate più 824 pagine compreso il Sommario ed Elenco delle incisioni. Alla fine della Prefazione vi è la dicitura GIORGIO ERBERS LIPSIA, 1° del 1878 e dato che ricercando ne ho trovati con riferimento al 1893 con casa editrice PERINO (cosa che quello in mio possesso non ha) non so se si tratti di prima edizione. Mi auguro che questo appunto sia di aiuto. Le pagine sembrano tutte ben salde alla costa (in pelle e stampa oro), segnalo ingiallimento naturale del tempo e la presenza di strappi alle pagine 367-385-387-447-609-625 (gran parte di 1/2 Cm tranne due più lunghi, uno di 7 ed uno di 13 CM) Per visionare lo stato di conservazione delle varie parti inviatemi un numero cell. ed io vi invierò una serie di foto tramite WHATSAPP Oggetto in vendita in condizioni: Come da foto Resto comunque a disposizione per eventuali informazioni (prego di contattarmi al 329 0158438) Mi auguro che l'inserzione sia chiara ed essenziale per tutti Andrea.

New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1878. First Edition. Thick Large Octavo. Frontispiece, 755 pages. index, (4)pp. publisher's ads, illustrations Of Steel and Wood. After serving in the Black Hawk War, he resigned (1834) from the U.S. Army and went to Texas where he enlisted (1835) in the revolutionary army. Johnston became its commander in 1837 and served as Texas secretary of war, 1838-40. In the Mexican War, he commanded a regiment of volunteers and saw action at Monterrey. Reentering the U.S. army in 1849, Johnston served on the Texas frontier, was commander of the Dept. of Texas (1856-58), led the expedition against the Mormons (1857), and commanded the Dept. of Utah (1858-60). When Texas seceded from the Union in Apr. 1861, Johnston, commanding the Dept. of the Pacific, again resigned his commission in the U.S. Army and was soon made general in charge of Confederate operations in the West. Union victories, especially at Fort Donelson (Feb. 1862), forced him to withdraw from the line of defense he had established in 1861. He concentrated an army at Corinth, Miss., and on Apr. 6, 1862, attacked Ulysses S. Grant at Shiloh. Johnston was killed at the height of battle. One of the handfuls of generals on either side that were regarded by their contemporaries and later historians as truly great.

Vintage Encyclopedia Britannica Ninth Edition: 25 Volume set Hardcover 1878-1889. The landmark ninth edition, often called "the Scholar's Edition", was published from January 1875 to 1889 in 25 volumes, with volume 25 the index volume. The 9th and 11th editions are often lauded as high points for scholarship; the 9th included yet another series of illustrious contributors such as Thomas Henry Huxley, Lord Rayleigh, Algernon Charles Swinburne and William Michael Rossetti. Robert Louis Stevenson, then 25, contributed an article about Robert Burns that, being unenthusiastic, was never printed. Compared to the 8th edition, the 9th was far more luxurious, with thick boards and high-quality leather bindings, premier paper, and a production which took full advantage of the technological advances in printing in the years between the 1850s and 1870s. Great use was made of the new ability to print large graphic illustrations on the same pages as the text, as opposed to limiting illustrations to separate copperplates. Although this technology had first been used in a primitive fashion the 7th edition, and to a much lesser extent in the 8th, in the 9th edition there were thousands of quality illustrations set into the text pages, in addition to the plates. The 9th edition was a critical success, and roughly 8,500 sets were sold in Britain. A & C Black authorized the American firms of Charles Scribner's Sons of New York, Little, Brown and Company of Boston, and Samuel L. Hall of New York, to print, bind and distribute additional sets in the United States, and provided them with stereoty … [Click Below for Full Description]

Über die Besetzung des Orchesters für das Vorspiel zum "Parsifal" mit geliehenen Musikern der Weimarer Hofkapelle. "... Soeben gelangt das Bekenntniß an mich, dass der hiesige (zum 3ten bestimmte) Fagottist schwach ist. Also: Weimar. Ebenso noch ein Hoboist! Ich stelle dann von hier nur einen (3ten) Hoboe-Bläser, Sie dagegen - also mit Hilfe Weimars - zwei Hoboe-Bläser und einen Englischen Hornbläser. Es thut mir leid, dass wir für das letztere Instrument Ihren ersten Hoboisten verwenden müssen; sie werden ersehen, dass die Hoboe im Vorspiel wirklich zu singen hat ...". - Wagner wollte Cosima mit einer Aufführung des Vorspiels am 25. Dezember überraschen. Die Proben fanden mit Musikern aus Meiningen und Weimar heimlich im Saal des "Hotels zur Sonne" statt. Geschrieben mit violetter Tinte (sog. Parsifal-Tinte). Alte Faltspuren.
