        Pyramus und Thisbe".

      - Pinsel in Grau, Bleistift und Feder in Schwarz und Grau, auf Velin, mit Bleistift umrandet, links unten signiert „E. Hesse."; auf Untersatz montiert, dort betitelt. 12,9:19,9 cm. Der als Zeichner, Illustrator, aber auch als Bildhauer tätige Hesse studierte seit 1878 an der Kunstakademie in Dresden und war 1883/84 Schüler von T. Grosses (1829-1891). Er fertigte Tusch- und Schabzeichnungen an, die Themen entstammten meist Märchen und Sagen, die er auch illustrierte. Daneben sind Studienköpfe überliefert. Die literarische Vorlage des tragischen Schicksals von Pyramus und Thisbe stammt aus Ovids Metamorphosen. Hesse stellt das babylonische Liebespaar, das ein nächtliches Treffen unter einem Maulbeerbaum verabredet hatte, um vor den Eltern zu fliehen, kurz nach dem Tode von Pyramus dar. Er glaubte seine Geliebte von einem Löwen – im Hintergrund links – getötet und wählte den Freitod mit dem Schwert. Thisbe, den Toten findend, wählte in ihrer Verzweiflung das gleiche Schicksal. Die nächtliche Situation suchte Hesse mit grauer Lavierung zu betonen, wenn auch die Szenerie durch eine unbestimmte Lichtquelle die Figurengruppe mit dem trauernden Herold rechts im Vordergrund hervorhebt.

        Joueur de mandoline].

      Paris 1878 - dessin in-folio (54 x 32 cm), à la plume et encre de chine, légers rehauts de couleurs sur quelques pièces de l'habillement, signé et daté (Paris - 1878) au bas à droite, en feuille, sous passepartout, encadré de bois vernis, sous verre. Grand dessin de jeunesse signé du célèbre illustrateur. Très finement exécuté avec du caractère et une dextérité déjà évidente il représente un joueur de mandoline en oripeaux et tenue "à l'italienne", selon les codes reçus à l'époque pour ce genre de figure. On y voit assez clairement les attributs du Polichinelle de la Commedia dell'Arte même si l'interpretation en est libre (instrument de musique) et évoque aussi le saltimbanque. Sans doute un des premiers et seuls travaux conservés du jeune Jacques Onfroy de Bréville (1858-1931) dont l'acronyme lui sert de pseudonyme et le fait connaitre sous le nom de JOB. Sa signature est donc celle qu'on ne verra rapidement plus sur ses ?uvres. Agé de 20 ans en 1878, il était alors encore en service dans l'armée (il ne la quittera qu'en 1882), après que son père eut refusé qu'il entrât aux Beaux-Arts à la suite du Collège Stanislas. Il finit par y entrer après son temps de service et suivit les ateliers de Carolus Duran et Evariste Luminais. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Two volumes of nineteenth century South Australian Parliamentary Papers relating to ports and harbors, together with a small quantity of related manuscript material, collected by Geoffrey Ingleton. They are uniformly and handsomely bound in quarter morocco and buckram, with contrasting title-labels on the spines ('Early Port of Adelaide Parliamentary Papers, 1869-1878' and 'Early South Australian Ports. Parliamentary Papers, 1869-1880'); typed title leaves (signed by Ingleton) and lists of contents are included

      - The first volume contains eleven Parliamentary Papers (in all, 98 pages plus 7 plans or charts) plus a printed broadside and 11 manuscript documents totalling 19 pages. The documents, all dated 1878, include a proof copy of the Report of the Board of Advice (one page foolscap folio, signed in ink by the State Treasurer, and third-time Premier, James Boucaut, with a few minor corrections in pencil by Captain Frederick Howard, Chairman of the Board), a four-page draft report on Largs Bay - Semaphore Jetty Beach Boats (with a cover note initialled by Boucaut) and a two-page draft 'Report on probable effect of sea outlet for sewerage [sic] of Adelaide' by Howard. It also contains a large broadside (570 x 295 mm, printed in four columns, recto only) headed 'Outer Harbour at Marino. Public Meeting at Brighton. "South Australian Register", August 31, 1878'. The most substantial Parliamentary Paper is 'Report of the Select Committee . on Holdfast Bay Pier and Railway Bill 1869-70 (SAPP 209 of 1870; vi, 53 pages plus a small plan of Sandridge Old Pier). The best of the maps are Goalen's 1875 'Port Adelaide' (610 x 870 mm) and 'Plan of Proposed Harbour at Marino' (330 x 540 mm). The second volume contains twelve Parliamentary Papers, five of them duplicates of those in the first volume (in all, 216 pages plus 2 maps and a plan, but lacking the three plans from one duplicated paper, 'Ocean Steamer Accommodation' [SAPP 108 of 1878]; 3 pages plus an additional leaf, printed later and not present in the first volume). The most substantial paper is 'Report of the Select Committee . into the Desirability of forming an Outer Harbor (SAPP 113 of 1876; viii, 122 pages). The other maps are a folding 'Plan of Port Adelaide (342 x 251 mm) and 'Marino Bay with Proposed Breakwater' (400 x 555 mm). Most of the maps and charts are detached, and some have a few tears; there is sporadic foxing to the printed material, but overall the condition is excellent.

        Die Geburt der Tragödie (The Birth of Tragedy).

      Ernst Schmeitzner, Chemnitz 1878 - TP + [III]-IV + [1]-144, Octavo. The famous Second Edition, First Issue of Nietzsche's first book. (Schaberg 30). The Rare 1878 SECOND Edition of Nietzsche's Birth of Tragedy.Less than 175 original copies released in this state (see details below). NOTE: In 30 years, I have seen only one other copy of this 1878 issue and that was in the Weimar Archive.The eight months from February to October of 1874 were a time of great turmoil. Fritzsch was approaching bankruptcy and Nietzsche had to deal not only with the projected third essay in his series, but also with the fate of the three books he had already published: Fritzsch owned all of the copies.The problems began in earnest when Fritzsch printed the long-anticipated second edition of The Birth of Tragedy. The first edition had not been out a year before Fritzsch suggested that revisions should be started so that a new printing could begin in the first months of 1873. Nietzsche agreed. He edited and authorized the second edition during a visit to his publisher's office in Leipzig in late December of 1872. However, by March of 1873 there was still no second edition and Nietzsche wrote to Rohde that some problem with the printer was "not yet settled, therefore a long delay over the second edition." In fact, the printers were on strike and the delay became so protracted that it was decided to postpone the new edition until the second Observation had been printed and published.Finally, in March of 1874, the printing of the second edition of The Birth of Tragedy was completed, incorporating Nietzsche's corrections. The modifications were primarily cosmetic-the most substantive change being that these minor modifications added one page to the length of the book which now numbered 144 rather than the 143 pages of the first edition. Once again, Fritzsch ordered an odd press run-receiving 750 copies of the book from the printer, C. G. Naumann.It is unlikely that the books were bound at this time, but if they were, it is clear that no copies were actually sold. Fritzsch claimed that the volume would not be ready for release until the spring of 1875. Nietzsche, in an attempt to collect his honorarium, apparently accused his publisher of selling copies of the second edition. Fritzsch vehemently denied this and wrote back angrily challenging him to "question both the printer and the bookbinder to find out if I have already sold any copies of the second printing." The books remained in the warehouse for another four years before finally being offered to the public. (Schaberg, The Nietzsche Canon, pp. 51-53) As issued with Schmeitzner's label canceling out Fritzsch's imprint. In this particular copy Schmeitzner's cancel does not quite cover up Fritzsch's imprint: almost half of the letter "V" is still visible to the left of the label. Bound contemporary half-leather with marbled boards and gilt lettering on the spine. Very slight wear to the edges and corners. All in all, a very good copy of a very rare book.

        Digest of Zulu Affairs compiled and printed in three volumes by Bishop Colenso 1878 to 1883

      Bishopstowe: Mission Press,, 1878. Volume I Divided and Bound in two parts in 1920 [thus titled in manuscript]. Printed title page; The Zulu War. Correspondence between His Excellency the High Commissioner and the Bishop of Natal referring to the Present Invasion of Zululand, with Extracts from the Blue Books and additional Information from other Sources. Octavo (200 × 130 mm). Early twentieth-century maroon morocco-textured skiver, title gilt to the spine. Manuscript title page and index to the complete volume in the hand of Harriette Colenso, 452pp with a few minor corrections and annotations in the Bishop's hand. Somewhat rubbed at the extremities, light browning and some foxing throughout, but overall very good. Extremely interesting portion of a singularly uncommon work, half of the first volume - more accurately described as the first series - constituting Colenso's correspondence with Bartle Frere, and relevant extracts from the Blue Books in the period before the Battle of Isandlhwana. These documentary collections were published in nine series between 1878 and 1888, being continued by his daughter after Colenso's death in 1883, OCLC shows a scatter of institutional holdings, all of them to some extent partial, and/or incomplete: the University of Pretoria has series 4-6, "incomplete" and series 2 lacking a number of pages, and with a few pages of 3 "attached"; BL has representative examples of all nine, but all lacking considerable portions; SABIB shows 6 locations in South Africa for various parts, in varying states of completeness, this first series most often completely lacking; we have been unable to trace any appearances at auction for this title. This publication constituted a key element in Bishop Colenso's campaign to challenge what he saw as the misrepresentation of Zulu motivations; "Colenso's understanding of the Zulu kingdom was qualitatively different from that expressed in the official pronouncements of the Anglo-Zulu War. With the support of the Aborigines' Protection Society, and through the medium of his own printing-press at Bishopstowe, letters to the London papers, and APS pamphlets, Colenso took issue with Frere's account of Zulu history, which had depicted Cetshwayo's rule as a reversion to the Shakan model, and as a reaction to the mildness of Mpande's reign … [arguing that] Frere had been 'unceasing in his efforts to blacken Cetshwayo's character … in the eyes of Englishmen, who would never have endured … that such things should have been done in their name in these parts, if they had not been led to suppose that the Zulu king really was the loathsome monster that Sir B. Frere has persistently represented him to be'" (Hamilton, Terrific Majesty: The Power of Shaka Zulu and the Limits of Historical Invention, pp112-3). Colenso's assistant and printer at Bishopstowe, Magema Fuze, is an important historical figure in his own right. Not only was he the first black native of South Africa to become skilled in printing - he taught typography at St. Alban's College in Pietermaritzburg in 1890 - he was also the author of "the first substantial work in Zulu by a Zulu author" (Barber, The Anthropology of Texts, p153), publishing in 1922 Abantu Abamnyama Lapa Bavela Ngakona [The Black People and Whence They Came], his history of the Zulu people. Highly desirable fragment of an important contribution to the controversy over the origins, course and aftermath of the Zulu War.

        THE COSSACKS: A TALE OF THE CAUCASUS IN 1852

      1878. TOLSTOY, Count Leo. THE COSSACKS: A TALE OF THE CAUCASUS IN 1852. Translated From The Russian By Eugene Schuyler. NY: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1878. 12mo., red cloth, stamped in black & gilt; 313 pages plus four pages of advertisements. First American Edition, precedes the English edition by one year. Rare! This novel, first published in Russia in 1863, tells the tale of the Cossack life and people and a Russian aristocrat who fall in love with a Cossack girl. This is the first American edition of this work and is very scarce. Schuyler was an American scholar, writer, explorer and high-ranking diplomat. He was also the first American translator of Russian writers Ivan Turgenev and Leo Tolstoy. Signed presentation from Schuyler on a front blank page: "To Mrs. King of the Mulleins, the first copy for the first acquaintance, Eugene Schuyler. July 19, 1878. Bellows Falls." Certainly an early copy off the press, or perhaps the very first, the inscription appears to be to Schuyler's mother-in-law, Mary Ray King, wife of John Alsop King, the 22nd Governor of New York. Schuyler's wife, Gertrude, was their daughter and her mother was a widow at the time this presentation was made. As a matter of fact, contemporary musician and guitarist David Crosby is a distant relative. Schuyler's mother, Matilda Scribner, was also the half-sister of the publisher, Charles Scribner- so it is quite possible that this may be the first copy. A unique copy and very rare! Good (little bubbling to cloth & some wear to spine ends with bit of shallow chipping head of spine; some darkening spine; contents clean & tight with one middle signature a little pulled). $1,750.00.

        La Colonisation française en Nouvelle-Calédonie et dépendances; comprenant les itinéraires de France à Nouméa, par l'Australie, le Cap et l'Amérique; le tracé kilométrique d'un voyage à pied autour de la Grande Terre; des statistiques sur la colonie et l'Australie.

      Challamel Aine, c., Paris, but Nouméa 1878 - Quarto, with an mounted photographic view of Nouméa, five folding maps printed in colour, a folding table and five lithographic plates; with a suite of 73 lithographic illustrations (including separate title-page) comprising a detailed route map of a walk through the island; a fine uncut copy in recent cloth. The first major work on New Caledonia, this is also the first book to have been printed in Nouméa, and is rare. An authoritative and detailed account of New Caledonia, it was published at the height of the communard deportations, when French political prisoners were exiled to the farthest reaches of the globe under French influence.Although formally published by Challamel in Paris, this was in fact completely printed in Nouméa with the exception of the five coloured maps, which were prepared in Paris. The second part of the work, a lithographically printed route map of 73 pages detailing a journey around the Grande Terre, is quite a remarkable achievement; it has its own title-page: "Itinéraire Kilométrique. Voyage a à pied en Nlle. Calédonie par Ch. Lemire 1877? Nouméa, Lith. - E. Melin".Not recorded by Ferguson, despite significant Australian content. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Adelaide, Government Printer, 1878 - Folio, 10 pages plus a very large folding map ('Plan shewing Explorations between Alice Springs and the Eastern Boundary of the Province': 570 x 1105 mm). Modern binder's cloth lettered in gilt on the front cover; a fine copy. South Australian Parliamentary Paper Number 209 of 1878. Barclay and his small party left Alice Springs on 31 January 1878; before turning back on 4 June, they had almost reached the Queensland border. Lack of food and water was the main problem, exacerbated on their return by a delay of five days spent shoeing the surviving horses (one having been eaten). 'The shoeing is a very tedious job, as we have no small shoes left, and it is a hard matter to fit them without a forge. The horses could not get through the range without it, or I should push on, as we are all but out of food of every kind, and are living on rats'. McLaren 5041 (not noting the dimensions of the map).

Cloth rubbed at corner tips, exposing the boards, with shallow loss at crown and base of spine; rubbing to cloth along rear joint, with discreet exposure of threading; binding sound and firm, clean throughout, with the decorative elements nicely preserved - a solid Very Good copy. An important volume in the "No Name" series, which featured American poetry and prose written by prominent authors whose identities were kept secret. The present volume, published in a tiny edition of 2,000 copies, features contributions by two authors whose works are strongly associated with the feminist movement: "Husband and Wife," by Christina Rossetti (pp.42-44), and most notably, "Success" by Emily Dickinson. While Dickinson was a prolific private poet, "Success" is credited with being the only poem published during her lifetime. Despite the flaws, an attractive copy of an important debut. BAL 118.

Der aus Prag gebürtige Rückauf studierte bei Proksch Klavier und trat bereits in jungen Jahren als Komponist hervor, bevor er 1878 nach Wien übersiedelte, wo er seine Ausbildung bei Nottebohm und Leschetizky vervollkommnete. "Von großem Einfluß auf seine weitere künstlerische Entwicklung war die Bekanntschaft mit dem Tenor G. Walter: einerseits hatte Rückauf als dessen ständiger Klavierbegleiter großen Erfolg [.], andererseits wurde er durch ihn zu zahlreichen Liedkompositionen angeregt. Abgesehen von seiner Tätigkeit als Dirigent des Evangelischen Singvereins in Wien (1899-1901) wirkte Rückauf neben seinem kompositorischen Schaffen als Liedbegleiter (zu nennen ist u. a. die Erstaufführung der 'Vier ernsten Gesänge', op. 121, von Brahms) sowie als Privatlehrer.
