        El de la rollona

      Calcografía for the Real Academia, 1878. Goya's pitiless caricature of a grown up "mama's boy" Los Caprichos was Goya's first collection of completely original etchings. They were and remain startlingly original in style and frequently shocking in their satirical assaults. They are strikingly modern and are his most popular prints today, though they were received with little favor in 1799 when they first appeared for sale. But even within Goya's lifetime enthusiasm grew. El de la rollona is uncompromising in its mockery of the mama's boy who is dressed in baby clothes, has his fingers in his mouth and a look of terror in his eyes, though he's bearded and obviously strong. The nanny or mother grieves in the shadow behind him, so disappointed in his failure to become a man. Goya's textual comment about this engraving is: "Negligence, tolerance and spoiling make children capricious, naughty, vain, greedy, lazy and insufferable. They grow up and yet remain childish. Thus is nanny's little boy." The fourth edition of Caprichos , from which this print comes, was made about 1878, as witnessed by the beveled platemark and the "strong, absorbent, wove paper" and "dark umber ink". Harris, v. 1, 95-109; v.II, p. 74; Delteil 41; Hind p.253 - 5. Etching and aquatint. From the 4th edition of "Los Caprichos" - plate 4.

        ALS.

      Paris, 17. IV. 1878. - 130 x 207 mm. 1 p. On printed letter-head of the "Laboratoire de Physique, Conservatoire des Arts & Métiers". Expressing his regrets but his return has been postponed and he will perhaps be absent form Paris for all the Easter week. - The experimental physicist Becquerel is noted for his work on magnetism. In 1840 he discovered the electrical currents produced during photochemical reactions and studied the intensity of light in such currents. Inventor of the phosphoroscope, he also engaged in spectral studies. It is amusing that Becquerel should still be using "Arts & Métiers" notepaper eighteen years after he had ceased to teach there. It was in 1878 that he was appointed Director of the Musaeum d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris.

Sonneck Orchestral Music p. 55.& & "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. The Allegretto recasts the traditional scherzo–trio alternation into a rondo-like structure that is one of Brahms's most original creations. Although the finale ends the symphony in a jubilant blaze of D major, it glances back at the mood of the earlier movements, especially in the haunting passage at the end of the development section (whose chains of descending 4ths Mahler recalled in his First Symphony) and in the syncopated episode for brass in the coda."

        Is He Popenjoy? [Rare; An important part of Publishing History] TOGETHER WITH: The History of a Crime (The Testimony of an Eye-Witness) Also containing: Paul Knox, Pitman; Henriette, fragments of the newspaper of the Marquis de Boisguerny, MP; and Christine Brownlee's Ordeal

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1878. First American edition. A Near Fine copy (with spectacular pages) of the first seven issues in Haper's Franklin Library series, including two highly notable American First Editions, those being Anthony Trollope's "Is He Popenjoy?" and Victor Hugo's "The History of a Crime / The Testimony of an Eye-Witness". The Franklin Square Library series was published by Harper to meet the large demand for literature at a low price. Usually selling for 10 or 15 cents a copy, the series eventually replaced Harper's Library of Select Novels Series and its Half-Hour Series. Trollope's "Is He Popenjoy" was the inaugural work in the Series, "Number 1", in the then-new format, and thus an important event in Publishing history. Of it Smith states: "This new series and its advertising logic sounded the death knell for collectors. First editions in this series are no longer books, but newspapers. Their fragility, format, and ephemeral makeup discouraged most buyers from keeping them.....few have survived." According to Smith, these issues are "rarely seen for sale and are usually found only in private collections and in certain research libraries." He describes "Is He Popenjoy?" as being "of the utmost rarity" and we expect that many other issues in the series, particularly the earliest ones, could be described in like manner. This copy includes all of Smith's State A advertisements published with "Is He Popenjoy?". Number 2 in the series was Hugo's "The History of a Crime", a work first completed by Hugo in 1852 but not presented to the public in print until 1877 (in France, with the first two - of four - volumes also being published in he UK that year). An historical novel, the work records the December 1852 coup d'etat effected by Napoleon III, the nephew and heir of Napoleon I and the then-outgoing President of the Second Republic (and the first President of France elected by democratic popular vote) after he was blocked by the Constitution and the Parliament from running for a second term as President. The coup made him Emperor of the Second French Empire and sent the pro-democracy Hugo into an eighteen-year exile. The work was written in the few months following Hugo's flight, but only published in 1877, when Hugo feared a similar takeover by Marshal Marie Esme Patrice Maurice de MacMahon, the first President of the Third Republic (who had obtained his office after the Second French Empire of Napoleon III collapsed and who had threatened the dissolution of the republican-dominated Chambre des deputes). Harper first published the novel serially and this volume presents the first American edition of the entire work. The volume also contains the first American editions of "Paul Knox, Pitman" by John Berwick Harwood (an English writer of about 20 novels best known for his ghost stories), "Henriette, fragments of the newspaper of the Marquis de Boisguerny, MP" by Ernest Daudet (a highly-prolific French writer and journalist and the elder brother of French novelist Alphonse Daudet), "Christine Brownlee's Ordeal" by the British author Mary Patrick, and two other works published anonymously. The seven works are housed within the Publisher's original three-quarter black leather binding with brown boards, the spine lettered and lined in gilt and the boards lined in gilt. The spine and outer board corners show rubbing, but within the pages, trimmed at the margins for inclusion in this volume, are in wonderful condition, being remarkably bright and clean and in better condition than any other sheets of any other title in the notoriously fragile Franklin Square Library newspaper format series that we ever have seen. These first American editions are EXCEEDINGLY RARE and present an extraordinary opportunity for the Trollope collector, the Hugo collector, and for the general collector of important publications in American literary history. Most collectors will never see the either this Trollope novel or this Hugo work, much less own one. The chance to own either of them certainly will not arise often, if at all, for the vast majority of collectors. AN EXTREMELY SCARCE TROLLOPE FIRST together with and EXTREMELY SCARCE HUGO FIRST. A COLLECTION-DISTINGUISHING ITEM OF THE UTMOST RARITY.

        La Fortification du Champ de Bataille

      Brussels, Librairie Militaire C. Muquardt, , 1878. Octavo, original purple cloth, title gilt to spine with elaborate panelling in gilt and black, upper board similarly decorated centred on a large tool of a trophy of arms, lower board panelled in black, all edges gilt, marl endpapers. 19 folding plates at the rear. Some light foxing to the fore-edges of the plates, which stand proud of the text-block, otherwise very good indeed. First edition. This appears to be in the de luxe binding with the "atlas de planches" bound in at the rear, and is certainly one of a few copies printed on Holland paper. Essentially the final revision and expansion of Brialmont's Fortification Improvisée of 1870 - "une simple conférence, écrite pour l'armée belge" - taking into account the unfolding events of the Russo-Turkish War, and developed into "une oeuvre arrivée à maturité, un traité complet." Brialmont was one of the most significant thinkers in the field in the latter part of the nineteenth century. A really lovely copy.

MAPS (about 7) PRESENT IN THE BACK OF THE BOOK (with one having a minor tear)!!!! The complex relation between ancestor worship and Christianity in China is not merely a question of theory. It has long been a practical issue of great moment change among Christian missionaries. Indeed, the problem has bulked so large in the past that the events to which it gave rise stand out clearly in the pages of general history. There have been four major chief movements in the history of Christianity in China. There was the Nestorian, beginning in the seventh century; the Franciscan, which was a relatively brief episode chiefly of the early fourteenth century; the basic Roman Catholic movement beginning with the Jesuits in the sixteenth century; and the Protestant movement, beginning in the early nineteenth century and covering the span of this book.
