        STRANGE STORIES FROM A CHINESE STUDIO. Translated and Annotated by Herbert A. Giles .

      London: Thos. de la Rue & Co., 1880 - Octavo, two volumes: pp. [i-vii] viii-xi [xii-xiii] xiv-xxxii [1] 2-432; [i-iv] [1] 2-404, rebound in quarter green cloth and marbled boards. First edition of this translation. The first publication in English of an extensive selection of stories from the classic collection of Chinese stories of the supernatural. Translations of 164 stories from the LIAO- CHAI CHIH-YI based on the Chinese text published by Tan Ming-lun in 1842, collated with the edition of Yü Chi published in 1766. The LIAO-CHAI could be called, in terms of scope and influence, though not style, the 1001 Nights of China. P'u Sung- ling (1640-1715) collected about 500 supernatural tales throughout China during his lifetime. P'u is believed to have completed the majority of the tales about 1679, though he may have added stories as late as 1707. He was too poor to publish his work, but it was circulated in manuscript before it was published posthumously. Sources differ in their account of the year of publication. One source claims the LIAO-CHAI was published by P'u's grandson in 1740. However, the earliest surviving print version was printed in 1766 in Hangzhou. One of the best original-language editions was that of Tan Ming-lun, published in 1842 in sixteen small octavo volumes of about 160 pages each. Before Giles's collection only fifteen of these stories had been published in English versions. Giles (1845-1935) served as a British diplomat in China during most of the last quarter of the nineteenth century, then took a post as professor of Chinese at Cambridge. He was an eminent Sinologist and his translations are careful and copiously annotated, though sometimes a little dry. The stories are often wildly imaginative, with motifs and themes distinctively Oriental. What is perhaps most remarkable is that, although generally very short, the stories never feel abbreviated or sketchy. Modern selections and translations in English have appeared under many different titles. Critics have called Giles's Victorian era translations "prudish" and they have been dismissed as "orientalist bowdlerizations." (These same criticisms apply to more modern translations as well.) Historically, a very important pioneer work. See John Minford and Tong Man, "Whose Strange Stories? P'u Sung-ling (1640-1715), Herbert Giles (1845-1935), and the Liao-chai chih- yi," East Asian History, June/December 1999, numbers 17/18, pp. 1-48. Bleiler (1978), p. 82.

According to Quaritch, 'this phrase, intended as the allurement of a bribe to the land-labourers - a class at all times and in all countries struggling for existence - was used in 1848 by the Polish Revolutionary committee, in order to obtain the co-operation of the Polish peasantry in the Grand Duchy of Posen'. The ephemeral material bound in to this volume comprise: 1. 3 autograph letters signed and 1 autograph card signed from Knorr to Quaritch, all from Berlin on various dates in 1886, totalling 13pp. 2. Knorr's printed business card (carte de visite). 3. Two autograph notes signed to B.Q. from H D Dudgeon of similar date. 4. An autograph note signed from Major E Gunter to B.Q. of similar date. 5.

        Supremely desirable AMS in French, signed "J. B. d. A.,"

      n. p., no date but circa 1880 - Folio. 5 pp. Draft for the introduction to his 1880 pamphlet of literary criticism entitled Goethe et Diderot. In part (translated): "These two studies about Goethe and Diderot have been published separately at rather distant periods,—and in a journal, with a style of publication invented at an age pulverizing everything, even thought, but by their double subject, they imperatively required [the two studies] overall and unity of the book. It was expedient to place Goethe and Diderot within the scope of the same volume to bring them closer to each other that way, to make it a better judgment and give a more exact and clearer view of their identity because, hence differences of country and period, language and idea, influence and destiny, Goethe and Diderot—who dug and penetrated beyond—are minds of identical nature Goethe,—the last to come of the two—is certainly the greatest in mankind opinion, as Charlemagne is greater than Pepin, but it is Diderot who is the predecessor and the father,—and yet is it [inserted] a father who has not given all his temperament to his son! Goethe, without Diderot, could exist maybe as Diderot himself, but the both of them are no less minds of same substance and same race,—and so much, than while writing about Goethe, the Voltaire of Germany, who had no one to counterbalance his glory, it is impossible not to think of Diderot, who had Voltaire next to him to kill his by comparison!" Handsomely custom-bound in dark red leather with a matching slipcase. Repaired separations to intersecting folds and a few repaired tears, uniform toning, and a bit of paper loss to corners, otherwise fine condition. Barbey d'Aurevilly was known as a harsh literary critic and earned the nickname ‘The Constable of Literature’ while writing for for Le Constitutionnel. With the exception of the opening paragraph, this introduction focuses almost entirely on Goethe and his reception as a genius in Germany and France. It is a fascinating attack on Goethe’s status as a literary great and is a fine embodiment of Barbey d’Aurevilly’s criticism, as he never hesitated to go against the tide of popular opinion. - Former collection of Philippe Zoummeroff (1995, n°273)

"Ueber uns umstarrte Wände | Durch das dufterfüllte Thal | Zu dem lieblichsten Gelände | Tanzt der erste Sonnenstrahl [...]". - Seit 1880 in Wien lebend, schrieb Kalbeck für die "Wiener Allgemeine Zeitung", später auch für die "Neue Freie Presse" und die "Wiener Montags-Revue". In seinen Rezensionen vertrat er die Geisteshaltung des bürgerlichen Liberalismus und nahm vehement gegen die Vertreter der "Neudeutschen Schule" Stellung, besonders gegen Richard Wagner, Anton Bruckner und Hugo Wolf; mit Johann Strauß Sohn und Johannes Brahms hingegen war Kalbeck freundschaftlich verbunden. Sein bekanntestes Werk ist die große vierbändige Biographie über Johannes Brahms (1904ff.).

        A Map of the City of New York by the Commissioners Appointed by an Act of the Legislature Passed April 3rd, 1807. Commissioners' Plan of 1811

      New York: C. Van Benthuysen & Sons, 1880. unbound. Map. Lithograph. Image measures 23" x 39". This unique publication of the original 1811 "Commissioners' Plan" of New York City, was issued as part of "The special and local laws affecting public interests in the city of New York. In force on January 1, 1880." The map covers Manhattan from the Battery to 155th Street, including Great Barn Island (modern day Wards Island). Also includes remarks and seals of John Randel, Gouverneur Morris, John Rutherfurd and Simeon De Witt as they appear on the original plan. The 1811 Commissioners Plan, of which this map is a copy of, is considered to be "the single most important document in New York City's development". Based on John Randel's surveys of 1807, It formally lays out New York City's famous grid system. Also known as "Manhattan's Master Plan", it was adopted by New York City's Common Council for the development and sale of land above Houston Street, which was at the time a patchwork of farms, houses and estates. The Slate Legislature appointed Gouverneur Morris, John Rutherfurd and Simeon De Witt the "Commissioners of Streets and Roads". Based on the surveys of John Randel, the Commissioners submitted their plan in 1811, which established the grid up to 155th street. The plan is considered to be visionary, and defines Manhattan to this day. Central Park, not envisioned until 1853, is not part of the plan. There are smaller squares named Harlem, Bloomingdale and Manhattan as well as the Grand Parade, which is today Madison Square Park. The map is in good condition with some toning and wear along folds, including minor losses. Lined for stability. This map, although a copy of the original "Commissioners Plan", is a rare find.

Garfield family Bible with the signature of President James Garfield's wife, Lucretia, on the ffep.James Garfield and Lucreita Randolph met in 1849 when they were classmates at Geauga Seminary in Chester, Ohio. It was at this time that James joined Lucretia's faith, converting to the Campbellite church and eventually becoming a minister of the Disciples of Christ Church. Lucretia and James attended Hiram Eclectic Institute together and began dating. Their relationship continued through correspondence when James attended Williams College in Massachusetts, and the couple was married in 1858.The "S.S. Teacher's Edition" was first published in Oxford in 1876. This copy was likely brought to the White House during Garfield's brief tenure as President in 1881. Following Garfield's assassination by the deranged Charles Guiteau, Lucretia Garfield retired to Ohio with her four children. She dedicated much of her time to preserving her husband's legacy, establishing memorial library in a wing of the family home, Lawnfield. She died in her winter home in South Pasadena in 1918.

        An important autograph working draft of an unpublished letter to the publisher, Giulio Ricordi, discussing the staging of four of Verdi's best-known operas and two of his vocal pieces

      4 pp. Octavo. Dated Genoa, January 9, 1880. Written in dark brown ink. Unsigned. Heavily worked, with extensive deletions and revisions. An urgent and impassioned draft in which Verdi writes about six of his own works: his operas Aida, Rigoletto, Il Trovatore and La forza del destino and his vocal pieces Pater Noster and Ave Maria.In something of a frenzy, the composer calls the recent performance of Rigoletto at La Scala "un fiasco" and that of Aida "un semifiasco." Verdi goes on to discuss Ricordi's publication of two of his recently-composed vocal works, the Pater Noster and the Ave Maria. He insists that Ricordi publish the Pater Noster as in the original and tells him that he will send him a copy of the Ave Maria to be issued as a piano reduction. "It's not a matter of punishing anybody.. but I just wanted to avoid a bother with a new public flop. Nothing else... The conductor who was directing the choir must be able to read a short score, right?... Reduce the individual pieces in whatever hell of a key you want. I will send you the Ave Maria tomorrow or the day after, whose simple instrumental part you'll be able to reduce for the piano. So, at La Scala... a semi-fiasco with Aida, a fiasco with Rigoletto and I foresee one for Trovatore... how could it be otherwise? ... Without a single decent singer... In Rigoletto if the tenor is the best one, eternal God! imagine the rest of them! And in Trovatore! ... an ugly screeching..." In a postscript to the document, Verdi discusses the possible staging of both La forza del destino and Aida in Naples, and suggests that Ricordi negotiate with Lampugnani in this regard:"Interested in imploring you to stage Forza del destino in Naples... That theatre is better than many others. After that Aida and Rigoletto at La Scala we may very well do Aida in Naples... Make an agreement with Lampugnani. I'd be grateful for it." Very slightly worn; creased at folds and at one corner. . The majority of the text of this document is unpublished (not included in the Carteggio Verdi-Ricordi). Only the text of the postscript is known, which Verdi sent to Ricordi as a telegram on January 11, 1880, two days after writing the present, somewhat heated, draft. Verdi was characteristically quite involved in the business aspects of his art. The present document, relative to some of the most important works in the composer's oeuvre, lends important insight into his detailed and often somewhat heated dealings with his publisher Ricordi.

        The Christian Year ? [with] STANLEY, Henry Morton. Single sheet message to General Ponsonby to pass thanks on to Queen Victoria for her message. December 6 1889

      London: Suttaby & Co, 1880. 10 photographs laid down. xii, 383, [1ads] pp. 8vo. Black coarse grain morocco, spine gilt, a.e.g. 10 photographs laid down. xii, 383, [1ads] pp. 8vo. A WEDDING GIFT FROM ONE OF STANLEY'S SENIOR OFFICERS. A wonderful souvenir from Stanley's wedding with a significant association. The inscription reads in part: "To Henry M Stanley Esq / Dear Sir, / Accept this book on this your nuptial day as a souvenir from one of your companions through the late arduous Expedition. With best wishes & long life & happiness Faithfully yours William Bonny."Bonny was one of four army officers chosen by Stanley to lead his Emin Pasha relief expedition, 1886-9. His official capacity was as medical assistant (to Surgeon Thomas Parke) and in Stanley's account of the expedition, In Darkest Africa, he says "I had frequent occassions to remark to him that his goodwill and devotion were equal to that shown by the others, and as for bravery, I think he has as much as the bravest."Emin Pasha was the governor of Equatorial Sudan, who appealed for help once he found himself engulfed in the same Mahdist uprising as General Gordon in 1885. Stanley finally located Emin in 1888 along the shores of Lake Ujiji - though he was not, in fact, minded to be rescued. Stanley had split his party into two groups, the Advance Column being those travelling with him and then the Rear Column who would camp at Yambuya on the Aruwimi.It was Bonny who first advised Stanley of the disastrous state of the Rear Column and of the impropriety of Barttelot and Jameson. Stanley came to see Bonny as a key ally. He was, in fact, one of just three people to see a pre-publication copy of In Darkest Africa. Tim Jeal explains: "Stanley knew that one day, if he were to have problems with the Barttelot and Jameson families, he would need Bonny to go public with his account of the terrible things that had gone on at Yambuya" (Jeal, 399).
