        A MASQUE OF POETS. INCLUDING GUY VERNON, A NOVELETTE IN VERSE

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1878. First Edition. 16mo; the 'No Name' format, issued in publisher's black 'V' cloth, with titling and decorations stamped in red and gilt on spine and panels; printed endpapers; 301pp, [2]. 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.

      O. O. u. D. - 2 SS. auf gefalt. Bogen. Tinte auf gedr. Notenpapier. Folio. Lied für Singstimme und Klavierbegleitung ("Ich hab' eine alte Muhme") mit unterlegtem Text nach Anastasius Grün. 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. Arthur Schnitzler zählte zu seinen Schülern" (ÖBL IX, 319).

        The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection

      London: John Murray, 1878. Sixth Edition . Original Cloth. Very Good/No jacket - as issued. 19 x 13 Cms (7.5" x 5"). PUBLISHING DETAILS: Sixth edition, twentieth thousand, of Darwin's great work, published by John Murray of London in 1878. 458 pages. Size; 19 x 13 cms (7.5" x 5"). Weight; 620g (22 ounces). CONDITION: I would rate this as very good. The original green cloth covers, with gilt titling to the spine, are clean and sound, with neatly repaired wear to the top and tail of the spine, where a little of the gilt tooling has been lost (see photo). The binding is tight and secure, with the inner hinges having been neatly strengthened (see photo). The text and fold-out diagram are clean, bright and free from foxing. There is a crease and a small bookbinder's label on the back pastedown (see photo). Altogether, this is a neat and tidy early printing of one of the most important books ever published. THE BOOK: 'can we doubt ... that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species, Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters.

        Typed letter signed in full to the noted American band composer and leader Edwin Franko Goldman

      - Edwin Franko Goldman (1878-1956) was a band composer and bandleader living in New York. The letter inadvertently testifies to the newly-immigrated Schoenberg's struggle with the English language, but also to Schoenberg's uncompromising nature. In the end, Goldman decided to publish Schoenberg's article in German. See Schoenberg's letter to Goldman, February 3, 1934, published in Arnold Schoenberg: Sämtliche Werke Edited by Rudolf Stephan, Section IV: Orchestral Works. Series B, Volume 13, (Mainz: B. Schott's Söhne; Vienna: Universal Edition, 1993), p. xxiii. 1/2 page, single-spaced. Large octavo, 266 x 184 mm. Dated Brookline, Massachusetts, January 31, 1934. With Schoenberg's name and address handstamped at upper left corner. In English.Schoenberg comments about a commissioned translation, by Goldman, of a text he had originally written in German. He is not quite satisfied with Goldman's work and requests a new translation:"Dear Mr. Goldman, you find enclosed the translation you have send [!] me with your letter of January 29th. There you find also some marginal notes where I have signed some of the parts of the translation, by which I cannot be satisfied.I understand your intention in translating my words and I can well appreciate it. Surely it would be of a great advantage if all I have written could be said in such a manner that everybody can conceive it. But surely also: The thought would loose [!] so much of its dep[th] and of its prospect, that I am forced to renounce another succes[s] of my word, than an [in?]adequate- one."Manuscript annotation to upper right corner in an unknown hand (?Goldman's): "Ans." [?Answer].Slightly browned and stained; creased at folds; hinged at upper edge with archival tape. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Inflexible mounted more ordnance than any previous British ship, and her 24-in thick plate meant that she certainly lived up to her name. Most controversially she was designed in such a manner that if her unarmoured bow and stern took serious damage in action becoming flooded, the buoyancy of the armoured centre section of the ship should be such as to keep her afloat and upright. Questions about the validity of this theory were raised by Edward Reed, the member for Pembroke, formerly Director of Naval Construction, who had visited the Italian ships at their base. Failing to convince the Admiralty he publicised his claims in the Times, resulting in the suspension of work on Inflexible and her sister ships Ajax and Agamemnon, and the formation of a rapidly-convened committee to look into the matter. In their report the committee concludes that it would be hard for gunfire to completely flood the unarmoured, but heavily compartmentalised and partially cork-filled ends. However, if this was somehow achieved, the ship would remain stable, capsizing only at about 35° heel. Work was recommenced and the vessel, originally laid down in 1874 was finally commissioned, under Jackie Fisher, in 1881. The following year she took a significant rôle in the bombardment of Alexandria.

        Suggestions in Floral Design

      London: Cassell, Petter and Galpin, 1878. Folio, with a total of 52 chromolithographic plates (including the frontispiece, decorative title-page, and tailpiece) and descriptive letterpress; extremities a little worn (one corner expertly repaired), a very nice copy. Pattern book for interior designers. Arresting album of plates depicting floral designs drawn from many sources, showcasing traditional patterns inspired by various sources (such as medieval tapestry and Islamic mosque tiles) alongside novel creations of the later nineteenth century.Frederick Hulme (1841-1909) was an artist and graphic designer who studied under Christopher Dresser and continued the tradition of producing pattern books for ornament and interior design. Also a keen naturalist, Hulme illustrated several books on the trees, flowers and butterflies of Great Britain. His contributions to scientific botanical illustration won him membership in the Linnean Society, and he later taught design at the London Architectural Association.Although published in London, the 52 fine plates in this book were lithographed in Paris by Dupuy.

        Lives of the Irish Martyrs [ Also, a Very Full and Complete History of The Penal Laws]

      New York: James Sheehy, 1878 New York: James Sheehy, 1878. First Edition. Numerous engravings, fold-out hand-colored map. 9 3/8" x 6 1/2", 751 pp. Green cloth with decorative gilt imprinting, all edges gilt. Light shelf wear, moderate foxing and toning, small scale corner bumping. But for the foxing, Near Fine; as is, better than Very Good Plus. A very handsome copy. Certainly one of the best preserved examples of the sought-after Myles O'Reilly account of famed Irish martyrs, this copy still boasts robust hinges (a common point of failure with this hefty 751 page tome) and a bright, nearly flawless binding. The total absence of previous owner's marks and the virtually original condition of the fragile hand-colored foldout map make this a copy for the serious collector of higher grades. Replete with engravings from the Irish countryside - as well as a remarkable frontispiece engraving of Oliver Plunkett - and treating as it does some several hundred Irish figures, this is a seminal treatise on the subject.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Salzburg, 2. II. 1878.. 2 SS. 8vo.. An Herrn Gotthard in Wien: "Wenn auch im Sommer, wo ich Ökonom bin, mir wenig Zeit zur Musik bleibt, so will ich ihr, der ich mein Dasein geweiht, doch im Winter ganz angehören. Ich treibe und höre viel Musik. Ersteres allein, da meine Schwerhörigkeit mich vom Ensemble-Spiel wenn auch nicht ausschließt, doch es mir erschwert. Zu Letzterem bedarf ich mein Preis-Streichquartett und ersuche ich dasselbe mir complet, nämlich Partitur und Stimme mittelst Postnachnahme zu übersenden. Wien habe ich auf der Rückreise aus Ungarn, wo ich alljährlich den Sommer zubringe, nur auf der Durchreise, ohne Aufenthalt, passiert, sonst würde ich Sie besucht haben. So freue ich mich denn in Zukunft mit Ihnen ein Viertelstündchen zu plaudern. Herbeck ging. Hellmesberger tritt an seine Stelle, doch nur als Hofkapellmeister, da die Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde über dessen Dirigenten-Talent nicht gleicher Ansicht zu sein scheint wie das k. k. Obersthofmeisteramt [ ]". - Hans Schläger war zweiter Direktor des Salzburger Dommusikvereins und des Mozarteums sowie Gründungsmitglied der Internationalen Stiftung Mozarteum. Er komponierte u.a. die Opern Heinrich und Ilse (1868) und Hans Heidekukuk (1873). Aufgrund von fortschreitender Schwerhörigkeit zog er sich 1878 aus dem Engagement für die Mozart-Stiftung und zunehmend auch aus dem gesellschaftlichen Leben zurück.

        Menschliches, Allzumenschliches. Ein Buch für freie Geister (Human all too Human. A Book for Free Spirits)

      Chemnitz: Schmeitzner, 1878. First edition. Very Good +/none. Nietzsches First Aphoristic Work and His Introduction of PerspectivismNIETZSCHE, Friedrich. Menschliches, Allzumenschliches. Ein Buch für freie Geister (Human all too Human. A Book for Free Spirits). Chemnitz, Schmeitzner, 1878. TP + 1 leaf = Vorrende + 1 leaf = Inhalt + 1 leaf = Half Title + [3] 377. Octavo. First Edition, First Issue, Schaberg 29. Only 489 copies of this first edition, first issue, as the remaining 511 of the original 1000 first edition copies were sold to E. W. Fritzsch in 1886 for use in a new edition with new title page and without the ads. Thus, this copy is extremely rare in any state. This is the first book by Nietzsche where he is listed simply as Friedrich Nietzsche rather than as prof. In fact, Human, All Too Human constituted such a radical departure in style and content for Nietzsche that he first proposed to his publisher that it be released anonymously or with a pseudonym. Schmeitzner, however, would not allow it. Reluctant to construct a philosophical system, and sensitive to the importance of style in philosophic writing, Nietzsche composed these works as a series of several hundred aphorisms, a departure from his style up to this point. Much of the work is devoted to what one might now call "psychoanalytical" insights into the nature of common human experience and the origins of our human valuations. At the time, serious inquiry into such things as the nature of dreams, the meaning of pity or the phenomenon of laughter had no place in the field of philosophy. Human All Too Human also contains Nietzsches reflections upon cultural and psychological phenomena in reference to individuals' organic and physiological constitutions. The idea of power sporadically appears as an explanatory principle, but Nietzsche tends at this time to invoke hedonistic considerations of pleasure and pain in his explanations of cultural and psychological phenomena. It is here, too, that Nietzsche's famous epistemological "perspectivism" is first broached: the view that "truths" are nothing more than interpretations of reality, formed from different perspectives and more or less successful in their struggle against competing "truths." Like the four books to follow, the present work is addressed to the "free spirits of Europe." It was the present work that finally divided Nietzsche from his greatest friend, Richard Wagner, more and more in Nietzsche's mind motivated by only the most simplistic greed for power, and betraying the promise of his art. Includes initial half title before the full title page and the eere correction, cut and pasted by Schmeitzner over menon (a non-word) to create meere (sea) on p290 aphorism 431, but lacking the rear advertisements. CONDITION: Contemporary ½ morocco binding with gilt lettering to restored spine. Decorative endpapers. Very good. This is a tight, very clean & beautiful copy.

        Dai Nihon Do¯chu¯ Saikenzu. [Travel map of Japan]

      Kyoto.: Kawakatsu Tokujiro.. Meiji 11. 1878.. Copperplate engraved map with woodblock color, full sheet (actually 4 joined sheets) with text and map title 14 1/2 x 68 (37x173cm) (map only approximately 13 5/8 x 46 3/4 inches) folding to 7 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches(fuku orihon), embossed paper cover. Original title label has been removed and a handwritten label attached, wear and a little paper loss to cover paper (not affecting the map). Overall light soiling and light wear to the map with tiny pinhead sized paper loss at the intersections of the two right folds (which are more exposed when the map is folded). Some oxidation (?) to the red color name markers on the island of Shikoku, but overall the map is in good condition. An attractive and informative travel map of Japan, issued just ten years into the Meiji era. There is much information given on and around the map, including distances (land and sea) between the many places named along the roads and also on the sea routes, plus listings of inns and shrines. With pictographs indicating mountains and small ships in the sea (including western steamships) the map is graphically very appealing. .

        Newdigate Prize Poem. Ravenna

      Oxford: Thos. Shrimpton and Son,, 1878. Recited in the Theatre, Oxford, June 26, 1878. Octavo (pp. 16). Original grey-green printed wrappers. Light vertical crease down the middle, as is the case with the other very small number of inscribed copies, perhaps folded to fit in the pocket of someone attending the reading. An excellent copy. First edition of Wilde's first independent publication. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front cover: "with the compliments of the author". The inspiration for Wilde's prize-winning poem came on a "vacation ramble" to Italy in 1877 with the Precentor and Junior Dean of Trinity College, Dublin, William Mahaffy. His recitation of it at Oxford was listened to with "rapt attention" and punctuated by frequent applause.

        Around the World in Eighty Days

      Philadelphia: Porter & Coates. Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket. 1878. Cloth. Later impression of the first American edition. Original terra-cotta cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, with the publisher's printed dust-jacket. The book is very good with some light mottling to the spine cloth, light wear at the corners, internally clean; the jacket is about near fine with a touch of wear at the spine tips and corners; Osgood was the first American firm to publish this Verne title in both a small unillustrated format in July 1873 and a fully illustrated version (from British sheets) in November of the same year. In March of 1876 Osgood sold at auction the plates and remainders of its Verne books and Porter & Coates paid $410 for the plates of the illustrated version, along with 310 sets of sheets at cost, and printed an edition from those plates in December of 1876; though not mentioned in Taves & Michaluk, it is probable Porter & Coates ran off one or more printings between then and 1880. We have dated this copy circa 1878, based on the rear-panel ad for the Fireside Encyclopedia, which was issued near the end of that year .

        How The “Mastiffs” Went To Iceland With Illustrations by Mrs. Hugh Blackburn

      London: Virtue & Co.. Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket. 1878. First Edition. Cloth. Original cobalt blue cloth with gilt titles and decoration on upper board and spine, all edges gilt, in publisher's original printed dust-wrapper, cloth folding chemise, and matching slipcase; Color map frontis, 14 lithographic plates, and an additional 2 silver prints tipped in. Collates complete. Book is fine and bright, as are the chemise and slipcase, though the plates have some very minor foxing (in all, that said, very near fine). The jacket shows toning around the edges, chipping at the spine tips, and short tears at the extremities, but still far better than very good. A bright and pleasing copy. ; The story of the voyage of the "mastiffs" (the self-named passengers on board the yacht "Mastiff," owned by John Burns, later Lord Inverclyde, of Cunard fame) from Scotland to Iceland. Trollope discovered Iceland to be "curious but not beautiful" and noted that Reykjavik was "pervaded by a flavour of fish," while his fellow passenger Mrs. Blackburn, who provided the pencil sketches reproduced herein, wondered how such a "rough-spoken good sort of fellow" had come to "write such good novels." Great fun, and, in the super-scarce dust jacket, very possibly the finest copy in existence .
