      1880. 60 photographs on albumen paper, measuring 28 x 22 cm each, signed and captioned in the plate, numbered 1 through 68. Contemp. green half calf with gilt spine and title "Égypte & Nubie", initialed "B.C.D." on first plate. Large and beautiful photographs of Bechard: excellent vintage prints, mostly in superior condition. They represent the popular Egyptian and Nubian types, frequently in close-ups. Nissan N. Perez states that this part of the work of a photographer specializing in views of sites and monuments "has escaped general attention" (cf. Focus East, p. 123, reproducing the photograph of water carriers resting). Includes: a scribe; a sheikh reading the Qur'an, merchants and grocers, a group of ulemas (religious scholars) reading the Qur'an, an Arab drawing water, whirling dervishes, Arab peasants (a fellah carrying water), a sheikh going to the mosque, a game of Mangala, water carriers, mat manufacturers, Sheikh Sadad, a descendant of Mohammed, a falconer, washerwomen, an Arabic singer, a young fellah, a Darabouka player, labourers, a public fountain, a beggar, Arabs at prayer, Arabic coffee, etc. - Béchard was active between 1869 and ca. 1890 "His work is distinguished by the superb quality of his prints and the generally spectacular presentation of even the most common sites, such as the pyramids. His studies of people and costumes are even more interesting and point to a very personal involvement of the photographer in the life and customs of the country. His cityscapes and urban scenes were mostly taken from unusual angles in an attempt to cope with the narrow and confined spaces" (Nissan N. Perez). - Binding repaired in places.

Um 1900 fotografierte Burger für Graf Wilczek die Burg Kreuzenstein und verwendete bei einer Nachtaufnahme der Burg dreihundert Einzelblitze. - Der aus einem polnisch-schlesischen Adelsgeschlecht stammende Wilczek rüstete die Vorexpedition in das Nowaja-Semlja-Meer aus (1872), unterstützte die österreichisch-ungarische Nordpolexpedition und arrangierte mit Hans Makart 1879 dessen berühmten Festzug in Wien. 1882 richtete er aus eigenen Mitteln die österr. Station auf der Insel Jan Meyen ein. Wilczek gründete die "Gesellschaft der Wiener Kunstfreunde" (1900), gemeinsam mit Theodor Billroth das Rudolfinerhaus.

A growing movement in these countries, especially Romania, calls to recognize the Aromanians either as a separate cultural group or as a separate ethnic group, and extend to them the rights of other minorities. ~ Vasile Alexandrescu Urechia (1834-1901), Romanian historian, author, academic and politician, a noted ethnographer and folklorist. Was Romania's Education Minister. In 1880, he was elected president of the Macedo-Romanian Cultural Society.

Le projet initial de la revue est d'éclairer les catholiques français sur les questions orientales ; cependant, la ligne éditoriale est très modifiée puisque la revue est reprise par les jésuites français qui en élargissent l'ambition en s'intéressant à des problématiques d'actualités concernant l'ensemble du monde et non plus sur le seul Orient. Études a suivi les évolutions de l'Église catholique et tient toujours une place importante dans la vie intellectuelle. Son audience dépasse le seul monde catholique et la revue participe aux grands débats publics. Elle bénéficie du soutien du ministère des Affaires étrangères, de l'Association pour la défense de la pensée française et du Centre national du livre.

        Pilgrimage from Cairo to Mecca. [Weißenburg, Burckardt, c. 1880/90].

      1880. Stencil-coloured lithograph. 42.5 x 63.7 cm. An extremely rare illustrated broadsheet showing the procession of the Egyptian Mahmal en route from Cairo to Mecca, with a colourful reception of a group of pilgrims in an Egyptian desert village. The Arabic caption states that the print was made from a drawing made on the spot by Sheikh Yunus, citing Hassan Uwais in Abidin Road, Cairo, as the publisher. The true publisher, Camille Burckardt in Weißenburg, is not named: it was company policy to obscure the European provenance of these broadsheets so as to to improve their sale potential in the Middle East. All of these prints are very rare; another copy of this print commanded £21,250 at Sotheby's in 2012. Des Mondes de Papier 120.

The plates depict plans, cross-sections and elevations of the building, engraved in great detail after drawings by Duchamp, Jasson, Riquois and others.

To the plates were added four volumes of photographs by Durandelle and Garnier's monographic text volume (not present here). - Occasionally slightly rubbed; some 10 plates with insignificant defects to edges.

        Autograph letter to Luigi Peragallo signed "G. Verdi."

      Between February and early April 1880, Verdi and his wife were in Paris to oversee a production of Aida, which featured Gabrielle Krauss, Rose Bloch, and Victor Maurel. It was a resounding success. After Verdi and his wife returned to Italy, Emmanuele Muzio, the conductor, sent them astonishing box-office figures, which surpassed nearly every record set at the Paris Opéra. Mary Jane Phillips Matz: Verdi, pp. 652-53. Luigi Peragallo handled Verdi's French and Belgian accounts until 1881, when Verdi sued him for fraud.. 2 pp. Octavo. Dated Busseto, July 16, 1880. In French (with translation). Verdi thanks Peragallo for depositing 30,000 francs on his behalf; if he should travel to Paris next winter, he would not need to take money with him. He goes on to mention his opera, Aida. "... I see in the papers all the Parisian parties and, alas there are too many! ... and I wish for everybody that it will all be parties and banners! I'm enchanted by the news you give me for Aida... " Slightly worn, soiled and browned; creased at central fold with minor abrasion and repair; small portion of blank upper left corner lacking, not affecting text.

      MONTANER Y SIMON. 1880 - PRIMERA EDICION.1880. 2 TOMOS EL ESTADO DE ESTOS LIBROS SE PUEDE VER EN LAS IMÁGENES.EL INTERIOR ES PROBABLEMENTE EL QUE MEJOR HEMOS VISTO , ESPECIALMENTE LAS CROMOLITOGRAFÍAS.EL LOMO DE UNO DE LOS TOMOS, TAL CUAL SE VE EN LA IMAGEN.MUY VUEN EJEMPLAR PARA UN EJEMPLAR DE ALMENOS 136 AÑOS. Hubo una época en que Josep Pla afirmaba que cualquier buen catalán burgués debía tener en su haber una colección de la Montaner i Simon. Era la editorial de más prestigio a finales del siglo XIX y, por ello, el arquitecto Lluís Domènech i Montaner construyó su sede en la calle Aragón de Barcelona. Un lugar céntrico y bien comunicado para una construcción que se convirtió en una de las primeras muestras del Modernismo arquitectónico barcelonés. Hoy, 'Núvol i cadira', la escultura de Antoni Tàpies, corona el edificio de la Montaner i Simon que se ha convertido en sede de la fundación del artista. Cuentan que Tàpies lo eligió nada más entrar en él y decidió colocar su creación en diálogo con la fachada como símbolo de la reflexión estética. Se trata de un edificio con historia desde sus orígenes. En un contexto como el de 1879, clásico y encorsetado, Domènech i Montaner idea un lugar polivalente e industrial para albergar la producción de libros y enciclopedias que acabarían en todas las casas de bien del viejo y del nuevo mundo. El arquitecto, preocupado por crear un estilo arquitectónico propio de la catalanidad y gran admirador del arte mudéjar, recibe el encargo de crear la edificación con total libertad. Y en ese instante revestirá de innovaciones su primer proyecto en serio como arquitecto. En la fachada se utiliza el ladrillo visto, novedad en las postrimerías del siglo XIX, y se usan materiales industriales como el vidrio y el hierro para adornar la estructura de palacio del edificio de la editorial. La edición barcelonesa del Quijote de Montaner y Simón Editores, que sale a la luz en 1880, es una de las más lujosas del siglo XIX. Sus dos tomos en folio, en excelente papel y mejor impresión, se adornan con las 44 cromolitografías a toda página firmadas por Ricardo Balaca y Luis Pellicer, y 252 cabeceras y remates xilográficos, grabados por maestros como J. Gómez, Smeeton,Tilly, Sadurní y Martí. Como había sucedido y sucederá con tantos artistas y editores que se acercan al Quijote, Ricardo Balaca no puede ver terminado su trabajo, ya que le sobrevino la muerte cuando sólo tenía la mitad de las estampas realizadas. Sigue de cerca el texto fijado por Hartzenbusch en 1863, con la consiguiente separación de la voluntad cervantina. El retrato de Cervantes que aparece al inicio de la edición fue grabado por B. Maura, uno de los maestros grabadores más importantes del momento. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
