        FIRST RUSSIAN CRITIQUE OF PRACTICAL REASON] Kritika prakticheskogo razuma i osnovopolozheniye k metafizike nravov / polnyi perevod s primechaniyami i prilozheniyem Kratkogo ocherka prakticheskoi filosofii sost. N. Smirnov [i.e. Critique of Practical Reason]

      tip. A. Transhelya, St. Petersburg 1879 - XVIII, 110, 192, [3] pp. 20?14 cm. Contemporary half leather with faded gilt-lettering on the spine. Original covers are preserved. Rubbed, private library ink stamps on the front pastedown, cover and last page, Soviet bookshop's stamp on the title page, owner's markings in text. Otherwise a very good copy. The first Russian translation of the most important work by Immanuel Kant (first originally published almost a century ago in 1788). In Russia Kant was an important figure, and attitude towards his philosophy work was complicated and ambiguous. With the development of high education different approaches to interpretation of Kant's philosophy have shaped. Perception of his work was particular for every town - Moscow, Kiev, St. Petersburg, Kharkiv. Kant's philosophy was spreading in waves (three overall), for example, at first it was introduced by professors Melman and Schaden in Moscow University who actively started to promote it; Karamzin published kind reviews, and finally first translations were printed («Osnovopolozheniye k metafizike nravov», Moscow, 1803; translated from German by Yakov Ruban). The first printed reference to Kant in Russia was made in 1790 by Melman (in Latin), and the first mention in Russian was made by Karamzin in 1791 (it was a letter about meeting the philosopher). All this together with Kant's election to the Academy of Sciences in 1794 was the start of Russian Kantianism. His name was so well known in Russia that Russian diplomats and travelers were deliberately seeking his reception. His ideas were popular among professors promoting them in universities (Melman, Shad, Finke etc.). It is known that even clerics were using handwritten translations in theological academies. So in the very beginning of 19th century there were made a few translations, most of them were low-grade because the source for translations was secondary or (and) in other than German languages. But even these bad translations disappeared for a few decades, and only in the second half of the century new professional translations (like this) were made. Decrease of Kantianism can explain such situation (the decrease itself was probably caused by the spread of materialism and positivism). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        EDINBURGH Picturesque Notes

      1879. [Stevenson's second book] With Etchings by A. Brunet-DeBaines from Drawings by S. Bough, R.S.A., and W.E. Lockhart, R.S.A. And Vignettes by Hector Chalmers and R. Kent Thomas. London: Seeley, Jackson, and Halliday, 1879. Original brown cloth decorated in gilt and black, beveled, all edges gilt. First Edition of Stevenson's second book, preceded only by AN INLAND VOYAGE. Like his first (and his third) book, this one is of a geographic nature; however, EDINBURGH is a sizeable (10" by 14") folio production, with six full-page engraved plates (as well as numerous vignettes within the text). Stevenson began writing this in Paris during the summer of 1878 (the summer that ended with his "travels with a donkey" through the Cevennes). He completed it that autumn, back in Edinburgh; it was actually pub­lished in December 1878.~This copy is in brown cloth; blue, green and grey were also used, without priority. It is a bright, near-fine copy, with minor wear at the corners. We find this book to be quite scarce in original cloth -- perhaps because the six plates of a size and quality that is suitable for framing. Beinecke 24. Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

        DE SODOMIA TRACTATUS [DE LA SODOMIE]

      DE SODOMIA TRACTATUS [DE LA SODOMIE] in quo exponitur doctrina nova de Sodomia Foeminarum a Tribadismo distincta auctore R. P. Sinistrati de Ameno Ordinis Minorum Observantiae Reformatorum. Parisiis, Apud Isidorum Liseux, 1879 [Isidore Liseux] [imprimé à Dole par Blind]. 1 volume in-16 (15 x 10 cm) de XII-89-(1) pages. Titre imprimé en rouge et noir. Reliure demi-chagrin caramel, dos à nerfs, tête dorée, non rogné (reliure de l'époque). Les couvertures du brochage n'ont pas été conservées. Belle impression sur papier vergé. Légers frottements à la reliure qui reste solide et décorative. PREMIÈRE ÉDITION. TIRAGE A PETIT NOMBRE (non justifié). Le traité De Sodomia est extrait du grand ouvrage du père Sinistrati, De delictis et voenis, publié à Rome en 1754. Il appartient au genre dit moechialogique ou pornothéologique, dans lequel se sont illustrés, parmi les apôtres de l'Eglise : saint Paul, saint Chrysostome, saint Augustin, et tant d'autres, jusqu'au jésuite Sanchez, dont le Tractatus de Matrimonio fait autorité auprès des confesseurs pour solutionner les si délicats et si complexes questions des rapports sexuels dans le mariage. C'est ici la première édition séparée de ce traité entièrement consacré à la Sodomie. Divisé en 92 petits chapitres relatifs au péché par le vase postérieur, de l'homme, comme de la femme (tribadisme) : Les femmes douées du clitoris peuvent exercer la sodomie - etc. Sont ensuite énumérées les peines encourues pour crime de sodomie : Celui qui a introduit sa verge dans l'anus et qui a éjaculé dehors doit être torturé - le feu doit être employé pour la punition du sodomite - etc. Ce petit livre est publié ici par les soins éclairés du savant éditeur Isidore Liseux, uniquement en latin, sans aucun doute pour éviter la censure que ce livre aurait pu engendrer s'il avait été publié en langue vulgaire. Il sera cependant réédité en 1883 par le même Liseux, en latin et en Français. Réédité dans la Bibliothèque des Curieux en 1912. RARE.

        Yellow Perch

      New York: Scribners, 1879. Colour printed lithograph on original mount. Among the finest 19th century images of American sporting fishSamuel A. Kilbourne, a native of Bridgetown, Maine, was an accomplished painter of natural history subjects when he decided, in 1858, to specialize in painting fish. He was extremely successful and, as the plates in this work testify, very proficient in his work. The Game Fishes... was his greatest accomplishment, and has been described as having 'the most beautiful fish plates published in this country' (Bennett).A reviewer writing in The Century magazine in 1882 wrote of Kilbourne's depictions: "Mr. Kilbourne has succeeded in a difficult task. He has succeeded in uniting in his delineation the accuracy in details of form and coloring required by the naturalist, with that freedom of style, delicacy of handling, and naturalness of surroundings demanded by the artist."The images are portraits in natural habitats mounted on card and suitable for framing, and they both accurate and aesthetically appealing.Bennett, p.65; McGrath, p.196; Litchfield 52; Brun G94; Nissen ZBI 1630; Howell 53-325; BMNH, p.973;Gee, p.91; Westwood & Satchell, Bibliotheca Piscatoria , p.107.

        Intermezzo For String Quintet - Copyist Manuscript with Bruckner's Autograph Controlmark

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph controlmark of the composer "ABr." at the conclusion of a copyist manuscript in an unknown hand. 7 pp., on manuscript paper of 18 systems, loose, folio. Titled at the head "Intermezzo. - III. Satz (No 2) (zum Quintett.)" with the composer's name given upper right "Anton Bruckner (Dez. 1879)", tempo indicated "Molto moderato (Sehr mässig)" and dated more precisely "21 Dez. 1879" at the conclusion. Evidently one of the first fair copies of the manuscript, composed in the same year and bearing the elusive control mark in the hand of the influential Austrian composer and organist, from whom any autograph material is extremely rare. Creases, disbound with moderate edge wear, otherwise fine throughout. <br><br><br />Bruckner composed his Quintet For Strings in 1879, between his Fifth and Sixth Symphonies, at the request of the Vienna Conservatory's director, Joseph Hellmesberger, Sr., leader of a celebrated string quartet. Dissatisfied with the work's "curious, elfin scherzo", he asked Bruckner for a replacement and Bruckner then composed this alternative Scherzo, the Intermezzo (WAB 113), in the same key (D minor) as the original and using the same trio section, but with a slower tempo and less technically challenging. The Quintet was nonetheless premiered as Bruckner originally composed it and was one of the few Bruckner works to achieve immediate popular and critical acclaim. The delightful Intermezzo was not publicly premiered until after the composer's death. Although, as reviewer Wayne Reisig remarks, Bruckner "never wrote anything which could be termed 'pops' beyond the Austrian-German border", the Intermezzo might be considered in that genre: it is a "sunny little work saturated with the feel of the Tyrol."
