        Der Wanderer und Sein Schatten (The Wanderer and His Shadow)

      Chemnitz: Schmeitzner, 1880. First edition. Very Good +/none. NIETZSCHE, Friedrich. Der Wanderer und Sein Schatten (The Wanderer and His Shadow). Schmeitzner, Chemnitz , 1880. TP + [3]-185 + [186] + [I]-XVII = advertisements, Octavo. First Edition, First Issue. Schaberg 32.Written as a second sequel to Human All Too Human, The Wanderer and his Shadow was first published in the year following Nietzsches departure from academia. Perhaps the title here is somewhat autobiographical, reflecting Nietzsche and his shadow heading off into the wilderness of the unknown. Wanderer contains a series of aphorisms and is published on December 20, 1890. It is received enthusiastically by Nietzsches friends, though fails to sell more than 200 copies. Yet, it was viewed by Nietzsche himself as a triumph. "In a letter to Schmeitzner written on December 18, Nietzsche remarks: "Der vollendete 'Wanderer' ist mir fast etwas Unglaubliches... Die ganze 'Menschlichkeit' mit den 2 Anhängen ist aus der Zeit der bittersten und anhaltendsten Schmerzen - und scheint mir doch ein Ding voller Gesundheit. Dies ist mein Triumph." [The completed 'Wanderer' is to me something almost unbelievable... The entire 'humanity' with the 2 supplements is from a time of the most bitter and continual pains - and yet seems to me to be a thing full of health. This is my triumph]"(The Nietzsche Chronicle).CONDITION: Contemporary quarter morocco with marbled boards, gilt trimmed.

        A Tramp Abroad;

      Hartford, Connecticut: American Publishing Company,, 1880. illustrated by W. Fr. Brown, True Williams, B. Day and other artists - with also three or four pictures made by the author of this book, without outside help; in all three hundred and twenty-eight illustrations. Octavo. Original brown cloth, decorative gilt spine lettered in gilt, large gilt motif on front cover, housed in a red cloth chemise and red quarter morocco slip-case. Portrait frontispiece, "Moses" plate, plates and numerous illustrations in the text. A stunning copy. First edition, first state of the frontispiece, with the caption reading "Moses". The portrait frontispiece is Blanck's state "A", with underlying lines in the lapel at the left of the plate almost vertical, and engraver's imprint at lower left ("Johnson's preferred state"). It has the "spots" mentioned by Merle Johnson who says they developed during the printing of the original plate, which was later re-engraved. State "A" (no sequence established) of the sheets which bulk 1 3/8 inches. State "B" (no sequence established) of the binding stamping with border curved at inner edges. Blanck notes "that some copies have heavily blindstamped on the back cover, immediately below the publisher's device, a numeral: 0, 4, 7, 8, 88, have been observed", and this is one of them, stamped with the number "8". Blanck continues, saying "it is possible that each numeral identifies a specific agent (the book was sold by subscription) and was designed to permit detection of any agent who violated the publisher's rule which forbade the sale of copies to retail bookstores." Pasted to the front pastedown endpaper is a full sheet of the author's original manuscript, approximately 105 words. It is written in purple ink, has the addition of six words where parts of two lines were scored out by Clemens, and corrected page number. On the facing front free endpaper is a full-page autograph inscription by Merle Johnson in reference to the manuscript, and to the bibliography of the book, signed, in which he begins: "Opposite you see a page of the original Mss. of this book - I'm sure of that, but I've spent hours trying to locate the exact page." The exact page are pages 397-98.

        [Archive and Scrapbook of Aerial Ballonist C W Williams of Williams & Young]

      Various, ca. 1880-1890. Folio. Ornate commercial Victorian album. 43pp. on 22 leaves, all but last both recto and verso, covered with a variety of scrap - mostly newspaper clippings. Several dozen more clippings additionally loosely laid in. Also included: several promotional broadsides and a small selection of business documents (letterhead, promotional flyers, etc.) for Williams & Young's air show, several small original sketches by Williams, a 7pp. manuscript entirely in Williams' hand entitled "Biograph of the World Famous Aeronaut C. W. Williams," plus an additional 1+p. manuscript essay also by Williams on parachuting. Scrapbook fair condition only. Spine perished. Several leaves loose, toning through, and chipping to the edges. Overall, fragile. Manuscripts also worn and a bit fragile, but entirely legible. Remainder of documents very good. Though manned ballooning was pioneered in the late 18th century in Europe, it took longer to establish itself in the States. However, by the middle of the 1800s, ballooning was a popular American entertainment, featured both in circuses and other traveling shows, as well as in festivals and on its own. Here offered is an important archive of a pioneering aeronaut and a substantial record of 19th century ballooning, assembled by a prominent practitioner. Williams and Young were most active from the early 1880s through the early 1890s (when Young perished in a ballooning accident). The duo were best known for their "Parachute Jump For Life," in which Williams ascended to 5000 feet and parachuted to safety below. The duo were also purported to have the largest hot air balloon in the world at the time, some 50 feet high and 70 feet around. They worked throughout the country and on both sides of the Atlantic. The scrapbook portion of the archive covers not only the exploits of the compiler's own company, but also those of their fellow balloonists. Indeed, the clippings alone amount to an impressively comprehensive portrait of ballooning as it neared the end of its popularity (the Wright brothers first flight was 1903) - and demonstrates both Williams' love of aeronautics and his careful monitoring of his competition. Together with the manuscripts and business portions, a rare primary collection relating not only to early flight but to its business and promotion as well.

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. - Bechard 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.

      Michel Lévy 1880 - - Michel Lévy, Paris 1880, 15,5x23,5cm, relié. - Edition originale. Reliure en demi chagrin vieux rouge comportant quelques discrètes restaurations, dos à cinq nerfs, date en queue, plats de papier à la cuve, contreplats et gardes doublés de papier peigné, couvertures conservées, tête rouge, reliure de l'époque Très précieux envoi autographe signé de Victor Hugo à Alphonse Daudet. Tampon de la bibliothèque de Madame Daudet sur la première garde. Victor Hugo représente pour Alphonse Daudet, comme pour les autres écrivains de sa génération, le maître incontesté du Panthéon des arts. Sa figure tutélaire parsème les oeuvres de Daudet, fréquemment convoquée aux côtés de celles de Rousseau, Byron, Sand et Delacroix. Si durant l'enfance et la jeunesse de Daudet, Hugo, géant exilé sur son île de Guernesey, demeure un idéal inaccessible, « presque en dehors de l'humanité », son retour en France lui permet de le rencontrer enfin. Aux alentours de 1875, peu après la parution de ses premiers ouvrages, Alphonse et Julia Daudet sont ainsi accueillis chez Hugo qui vit désormais avec Juliette Drouet. Ils deviendront dès lors des intimes de la maison jusqu'à la mort du poète. Victor Hugo participe à l'éducation du jeune Léon Daudet, meilleur ami du petit-fils de Hugo, Georges et, plus tard, époux éphémère de Jeanne. Dans ses Souvenirs d'un cercle littéraire, Julia Daudet évoque leur amitié de dix années avec l'« idole de toute la France poétique » : « Je vois Victor Hugo au grand bout de sa table ; le maître vieilli, un peu isolé, un peu sourd, trône avec des silences de dieu, les absences d'un génie au bord de l'immortalité. Les cheveux tout blancs, la tête colorée, et cet oeil de vieux lion qui se développe de côté avec des férocités de puissance ; il écoute mon mari et Catulle Mendès entre qui la discussion est très animée à propos de la jeunesse et de la célébrité des hommes connus et de leur séduction auprès des femmes. [.] Pendant le débat on est passé au salon, Victor Hugo songe au coin du feu, et célèbre, universel et demi-dieu, regrette peut-être sa jeunesse, tandis que Mme Drouet sommeille doucement. » L'amitié entre le dernier grand écrivain romantique et l'un des maîtres de l'école naturaliste naissante témoigne de l'acuité de Victor Hugo qui, au faîte de sa gloire, conserve une attention particulière et bienveillante pour la littérature moderne pourtant éloignée du lyrisme hugolien. Cette dédicace de Hugo à Daudet sur une oeuvre qualifiée, avec Le Pape et La Pitié suprême, de « testament philosophique » par Henri Guillemin, résonne symboliquement comme le legs à un fervent disciple de la responsabilité politique et morale de l'écrivain. Provenance: Alphonse Daudet, vente Sicklès (1990, IV, n°1200) puis vente Philippe Zoummeroff (2 Avril 2001). Extrait de Souvenirs d'un cercle littéraire par Julia Daudet : " Comment oublier cette première visite chez lui, rue de Clichy, dans le modeste appartement tellement disproportionné à sa gloire, à l'idée qu'on se faisait de cette gloire qui eût comblé des palais : Il se lève du siège qu'il occupait au coin du feu, en face de Mme Drouet, sa vieille amie, (.) je suis étonnée de sa petite taille, mais bientôt, quand il va m'accueillir et me parler, je le trouverais très grand, très intimidant. Et cette timidité que je ressentis alors, je l'éprouverai toujours en face d Victor Hugo, résultat de cette grande admiration, de ce respect, comme d'un dieu absent, que mes parents m'avaient inculqué pour le poète de génie. Je ne vaincrai jamais ce tremblement de la voix chaque fois que je répondrai à ses paroles obligeantes, et je m'étonnerai pendant près de dis ans d'entendre des femmes, admises auprès de lui, l'entretenir de leur intérieur et de leurs futilités habituelles. Ce soir-là, quand il m'eut présentée, toute confuse, à Mme Drouet, elle me dit avec une charmante bonne grâce : ? Ici, c'est le coin des vieux et vous êtes trop jeune pour nous. Mais M. Victor Hugo va vous présenter à sa bru, Mme L [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Original edition.Binding half old red grief with some discreet restorations, back with five nerves, when tail, paper plates to the tank, and contreplats combed guards lined paper, preserved covers, red head, then bindingPrecious autograph signed by Victor Hugo Alphonse Daudet.Buffer library of Madame Daudet on the first guard.Victor Hugo is for Alphonse Daudet, like other writers of his generation, the undisputed master of arts Hall of Fame. His father figure sprinkles the works of Daudet, commonly called alongside those of Rousseau, Byron, Sand and Delacroix.If during childhood and youth Daudet, Hugo, exiled giant on his island of Guernsey, remains an unattainable ideal, "almost beyond humanity," Back in France allows him to meet him someday. Around 1875, shortly after the publication of his first works, Alphonse Daudet and Julia are well received in Hugo who now lives with Juliette Drouet.They therefore become intimate of the house until the poet's death. Victor Hugo is involved in the education of the young Léon Daudet, best friend grand-son of Hugo, George and later husband of Jeanne ephemeral.In his Memories of a literary circle, Julia Daudet evokes friendship of ten years with the "idol of all France poetic""I see the great Victor Hugo end of his table; the old master, a bit isolated, a little deaf, sits with God silences, absences of a genius on the brink of immortality. The white hair, colored head, and this eye old lion that develops side with power ferocity; he listens to my husband and Catullus Mendes between which is very lively discussion about youth and celebrity known men and their attractiveness to women. [...] During the debate we went to the salon, Victor Hugo dream by the fire, and famous, universal and demigod regret perhaps his youth, while Mrs Drouet sleeping quietly. »The friendship between the last great romantic writer and one of the masters of the early naturalist school reflects the sharpness of Victor Hugo who, at the height of his fame, and retains a special kind attention for the remote yet modern literature Hugo's lyricism.This dedication Hugo Daudet on a skilled, with The Pope and The Supreme Pity, of "philosophical testament" by Henri Guillemin, symbolically resonates as a legacy by a devout follower of the political and moral responsibility of the writer.Provenance: Alphonse Daudet, sales Sickles (1990, IV, No. 1200) and Philippe Zoummeroff sale (2 April 2001).Gift extract of a literary circle by Julia Daudet:"How can we forget that first visit home, rue de Clichy, in the modest apartment so disproportionate to his glory, the idea we had of the glory that had filled palaces: He gets up the seat he occupied the fire in front of Madame Drouet, his old friend, (...) I am amazed at its size, but soon, when it will meet me and talk to me, I would find it very big, very intimidating. And this I felt so shy, I always try them in front of Victor Hugo, the result of this great admiration, respect it as an absent god, my parents instilled in me the genius of a poet. I will overcome never that trembling voice every time I answer his kind words, and I say astonish for nearly years to hear women, admitted to him, maintain their inner and their usual trivia.That night, when he had made me quite confused, Mrs Drouet, she said with a charming good grace - Here is the corner of the old and you are too young for us. But Victor Hugo will introduce you to his daughter, Mrs. Lockroy; alone has standing to that.And I was driving on the other side of the room, moderately large, though, but that was as divided in two by a table topped with a bronze elephant, very majestic, Japanese or Chinese, I think. It was enough to make two very distinct small groups that communicate easily, but without merging.At the time of his return, Victor Hugo was dazzling wit, many memories and told with an inexhaustible verve when the policy is not too invading his hospitable table. And grace in the home, what noble ways, what a beautiful smile grandfather in her hair I have gradually seen to blanch the snow eighty years I poets, all the poets attending this salon on Rue de Clichy, later the hotel Avenue d'Eylau. But here it was the change of place? There was like a step down in health, and in the spirit of good old man. Yet he always loved to entertain his friends, and the hospitality of this open house was not one of his charms least because, around the table, embellished with a piece by the two grandchildren of the Master, the guests were seeking their watchword in the eyes of the host, and he sometimes found a vein of memories so vivid, so picturesquely expressed, which remained blinded entire evening. M mo Drouet slowly growing old with him, sheltered under two snow bands, a somewhat theatrical elegance and quaint, until a ruthless evil dug his face so thin, made painful effigy has painted Bastien Lepage, who was to die prey to the same torture. In the recent times, the Master looked painfully, intimate dinners, that empty plate, that noble ravaged face.- Mrs Drouet, you do not eat, you must eat, have courage.Eat! She was dying. Did he know? Was he trying to delude himself the fine old so tough and strong, and who saw this companion from fifty years!In the large room where looks beautiful portrait of Bonnat, the paternal gesture, where the bust by David presides immensely; in the lounge, decorated with these striped multicolored tapestry that seemed strained to Dona Sol; in the garden come to the verandah by a flight of stairs two reappear Leconte de Lisle, Meurice and Vacquerie, Paul de Saint-Victor, smiling Banville, Flaubert and Goncourt conversing together, Mallarmé, Leon Cladel, Francois Coppe, Catullus Mendes, Clovis Hugues, shadows in a faded Eden; and Leon Glaize, Gustave Rivet, Pierre Elzéar, the tiny pink Ms Michelet offering a festive evening, and ambassadors, diplomats, Emperor of Brazil; painters, sculptors, and many politicians that I do not remember the names!Here the immediate impression that I drew one of those evenings when we visited, Alphonse Daudet and me, a snowy evening, where during the ride our horse fell three times across the Esplanade des Invalides:I see the great Victor Hugo end of his table; the old master, a bit isolated, a little deaf, sits with God silences, absences of a genius on the brink of immortality. The white hair, colored head, and this eye old lion that develops side with ferocity of power; he listens to my husband and Catullus Mendes between which is very lively discussion about youth and celebrity known men and their attractiveness to women. Alphonse claims that in a living room filled with all sorts of talents, of any age, a young man, the unknown author, the poet will ignored her female eyes beautiful it is. Catullus Mendes replied that he will initially unnoticed, and that all women will go to awareness: this seems true to me. Fortunately women do not have the eyes of their face, but those of the mind and heart. For the intellectual, the beauty of an artist, a poet does not count, it is the look of the thinker, the tormented face of the man who lives his feelings. They go to the talent, grief passes, they hardly thinking about physical beauty. Now one might reply that this is an ambitious sympathy they seek famous authors, but the other feeling, one that would attract to this tempting youth whose Alphonse speaks, seems less blameless.And I laugh to this claim of two charming conversationalists, generate, analyze us. But to say the woman is like saying the bird; there are so many species and genera, warbling and plumage are so different!During the debate we went to the salon, Victor Hugo dream by the fire, and famous, universal and demigod regret perhaps his youth, while Mrs Drouet sleeping quietly. His beautiful white hair shading his fine head like two wings of a dove, and knots of her bodice following her sweet breath, almost resigned, old woman asleep.It was soon after this event took place the great manifestation of scrolling Paris Avenue d'Eylau, before the windows of the small room that became mortuary in May 1885 filled with roses and simply furnished, such as accounts, museum Victor Hugo, a part taken in the former apartment of the poet, Place Royale.Although suggestive, the old home of the Marsh, "and when you think that there Victor Hugo wrote almost all his historical plays one imagines the poet, opening, the morning hours that were familiar to him, this high window on hotels all equal and same style, around the square, and remembering tournaments, duels, walks and agitations of several generations disappeared under the shadow of these ancient and solid arcades and not keeping track of the fugitive humanity.We still had dinner at Victor Hugo week before his death. He tells us by entering paler than usual, the inflected approach:- I will soon go, I feel it; and then relying on the shoulder of George: No 'that' a long time ago that I would be gone.I have never forgotten the focus rather solemn and as prophetic those words, I was imbued with sadness and foreboding; I felt the dispersion of this unique center and could not re ever!

L'album è in buon condizioni, contiene 92 foto assai nitide, in formato medio cm.11x19, applicate, generalmente a coppia, ad ognuna delle 48 pagine. Vi sono raffigurate scene di famiglia, immagini dei luoghi di nascita, di probabile residenza o comunque mete di viaggio. In particolare svariate località del Massachusetts (Weston, Charleston, Martha's Vineyard, Waltham), Indiana (Notre Dame), New Hampshire (Seabrook) e Ohio (Van Wert). Una gran parte delle immagini, le più suggestive, si riferiscono al Messico, dove uno o più membri delle famiglie soggiornarono evidentemente a lungo. Vi compaiono scene di vita quotidiana, particolari etnici, foto di monumenti e ricorrenze, luoghi celebri e occasioni folkloristiche. In particolare è da immaginare che la famiglia fosse di un rango piuttosto elevato, dedita a sport di elite e all'alpinismo, e abituata a frequentazioni altolocate. Le foto 50) e 60), infatti, raffigurano rispettivamente il generale Porfirio Diaz (Oaxaca de Juárez, 1830 - 1915), che fu Presidente del paese per due mandati, dal 1876 al 1880 e dal 1884 al 1911, e Manuel Gonzales (Matamoros, 1833 - 1893), che fu Presidente dal 1880 al 1884. Proprio queste datazioni lasciano intendere che le foto furono scattate appunto tra il 1880 e l'84. Interessanti anche due foto che raffigurano i festeggiamenti per l'anniversario dell'inizio della guerra d'indipendenza del Messico (16 sett

        Die römische Campagna mit der Via Appia.

      1880 1880 - Öl über schwarzer Feder, auf Malpappe, rechts unten bezeichnet, datiert und signiert "Via Appia 23 April 1880 HThom(a)". 34,8:53,5 cm. Mit kleinen Retuschen. Provenienz: Sammlung Simon Ravenstein, Frankfurt a.M. Literatur: H. Thode, Thoma. Des Meisters Gemälde, Stuttgart/Leipzig, DVA, 1909, Abb. S. 156 unten. In Begleitung seiner Frau Cella Thoma (1858-1901) und im Auftrag seines Sammlers und Förderers Charles Minoprio aus Liverpool, einem gebürtigen Frankfurter und wichtigster Mäzen Thomas in dieser Zeit, brach Thoma im März 1880 zu seiner zweiten Italienreise auf. Minoprio, der 1879 sein erstes Landschaftsbild von Thoma erworben hatte, hatte für sich und seine Freunde bei Thoma ca. zehn italienische Motive in Auftrag gegeben. Thoma begann nach Lehren als Lithograph und Anstreicher in Basel sowie als Uhrenschildmaler in Furtwangen, die er nicht beendete, autodidaktische Mal- und Zeichenstudien. 1859 studierte er an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie bei Ludwig Des Coudres (1820-1878) und Johann Wilhelm Schirmer (1807-1863). 1868 reiste er nach Aufenthalten in Basel und Düsseldorf mit Otto Scholderer (1834-1902) nach Paris. 1870-1877 lebte er in München, wo er mit dem Leibl-Kreis verkehrte. Sein erster Aufenthalt in Italien war 1874, ein zweiter 1880. 1876 zog er nach Frankfurt am Main. Nach sehr zögerlich einsetzendem Erfolg – seinen ersten größeren Auftrag hatte er 1882, 1890 seine erste erfolgreiche Sonderausstellung in München – führte seine steigende Bekanntheit 1898 zur Professur an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie und 1899 zum Direktorat der dortigen Kunsthalle.

Heyne Jan. 1873 ) II S. + 99 S. + 1 S. + 50 Tafeln mit Seidenhemdchen + jeweils 2 S. Text erläuternder Text dazu ,Originalganzleinen mit Deckel - und Rückentitel, etwas gelockert , 2 Einbandkanten stärker bestoßen, Erhaltung 2 += Peter Bernhard Wilhelm Heine (* 30. Januar 1827 in Dresden; † 5. Oktober 1885 in Kötzschenbroda[1], heute Radebeul; auch William Heine) war ein deutscher Maler, Schriftsteller und Reisender,Heine studierte an der Dresdner Kunstakademie und bei Julius Hübner, anschließend ging er zu Studienzwecken für drei Jahre nach Paris. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Dresden arbeitete er als Theatermaler und Kunstlehrer. Wegen seiner Teilnahme an den Aufständen 1848/1849 musste er, unterstützt durch Alexander von Humboldt, 1849 nach New York fliehen, wo er am Broadway ein Atelier eröffnete. Auf Einladung des Archäologen und Diplomaten Ephraim George Squier bereiste er 1851 auch Lateinamerika, vertrat Squier, bis dieser nach ihm eintraf, als Konsul, und dokumentierte und malte viele einheimische Pflanzen (Wanderbilder aus Centralamerika, 1853). Zurück in Washington, D.C. traf er Präsident Millard Fillmore und Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry und schloss sich im Jahr darauf Perrys Expedition nach Japan an. Als Mitglied in dessen Stab gelang es ihm, von dem damals noch für Ausländer gesperrten Edo viele Zeichnungen zu machen. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach New York wurden diese und viele andere 1855 veröffentlicht. Es folgten seine Erinnerungen Reise um die Welt nach Japan (2 Bde., Leipzig, 1856), denen später (1859) noch ein 3. oder Supplementband unter dem Titel Die Expedition in die Seen von China, Japan und Okhotsk (Leipzig,1859) folgte. Kurz darauf erschien als separates Werk noch "Japan und seine Bewohner" (Leipzig, 1860), das ebenfalls auf Erfahrungen und Studien im Zusammenhang mit dieser Reise beruht.In Berlin erreichte Heine 1860 die Einladung, als Reisemaler die preußische Eulenberg-Expedition nach Ostasien mitzumachen. Während dieser Reise traf er in Jokohama den nach Europa zurückkehrenden russischen Revolutionär Michael Bakunin nach seiner Flucht aus Sibirien.Zurück in den USA wurde Heine einer der Forty-Eighters, der wegen der 1848er Revolution geflohenen Europäer, die im Amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg meist auf Seiten der Unionstruppen teilnahmen. Heine war als Landvermesser (Ingenieur-)Hauptmann der Potomac-Armee und stieg 1865 bis zum Brigadegeneral auf. Zwischendurch veröffentlichte Heine 1864 sein Hauptwerk, Eine Weltreise um die nördliche Hemisphäre in Verbindung mit der Ostasiatischen Expedition in den Jahren 1860 und 1861 (Leipzig, 2 Bände). Nach dem amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg wurde er Konsul der USA in Paris, später in Liverpool.Schließlich kehrte er 1871 nach Dresden zurück und schrieb sein letztes Buch Japan, Beiträge zur Kenntnis des Landes und Seiner Bewohner (Berlin, 1873–80). Um 1880 ließ er sich in Niederlößnitz in der Augustusstraße 7 (heute Käthe-Kollwitz-Straße 24) nieder. Ab 1883 wohnte er in der Meißner Straße 45 (heutige Hausnummer: 269) in Kötzschenbroda. Dieser letzte Wohnsitz Heines wurde zwischenzeitlich abgerissen= Quelle Wikepedia

        A Biographical Sketch of the Life or William B. Ide: With a Minute and Interesting Account of One of the Largest Emigrating Companies (3000 Miles over Land), from the East to the Pacific Coast. And What is Claimed as the Most Authentic and Reliable Accoun

      [Claremont, N.H.: Simeon Ide, 1880.] - 12mo., (6 4/8 x 4 3/8 inches). Original brown cloth decorated in black, lettered in gilt (lightly faded). Provenance: with the ownership inscription of Geo. O. Ide, Chicago, Ills. On the front paste-down and on the verso of the front free endpaper; with the bookplate of James S. Copley on the front paste-down, his sale, Sotheby's New York "Magnificent American, Historical Documents", 10th May 2011, lot 1059. First edition. RARE. For twenty-two days, William Ide, who had emigrated to California in 1845, was one of the leaders of the Bear Flag Revolt of June 14, 1846, and became "Commander-in-Chief" of the short-lived California Republic. This hagiography of Ide by his brother, is important for the firsthand information of the Bear Flaggers, a group of settlers roused to action by rumours that the Mexican Republic was going to expel all non-citizens; the capture of Sonoma and General Mariano Vallejo; the establishment of the republic; and the final conquest of California by the United States by the ramshackle California Battalion under the command of John C. Frémont. It includes "President" Ide's own narrative of the Bear Flag Revolt and its aftermath in a letter he wrote to Senator W. W. Wambough before his death in 1852. Cowan p 301; Graff 2059; Howes I4; Streeter sale 2967; Zamorano 80 45.

        Photograph of a doubles lawn tennis match, with 2 observers and a large brick building and "penny-farthing" high-wheel bicycle at right

      n.p., 1880. Albumen print mounted on card. Image 24 x 17.5 cm. Light spotting to mount and image, slightly faded. A fine early image of a doubles lawn tennis match, the players wielding flat-topped wooden racquets. With an intriguing pencil notation beneath the image, "H.F. Chaffee." One Herbert Fuller Chaffee, born in 1865, achieved great success managing a Bonanza farm on North Dakota only to perish with the sinking of the Titanic. The young man in the foreground of this photo, staring directly into the lens, bears a close resemblance to a known image of Chaffee. This photo was possibly taken when Chaffee attended Oberlin College in the late 1880's.

        On a Fourth State of Matter" [A Letter to the Secretary] in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Volume 30, 1880, pp. 469-472

      First edition of Crookes' paper "On a Fourth State of Matter." This is the first edition of the paper's appearance in the Proceedings; in 1880 the paper appeared in Nature. "In 1879, the English physicist Sir William Crookes, while considering the properties of matter in electrical discharges, suggested that these gases are the fourth state of matter" (Eliezer, The Fourth State of Matter, 155). "With his thorough grounding in the experimentally difficult art of vacuum physics, Crookes laid the foundation for the fuller investigation by J. J. Thomson of the behavior of radiant matter in the discharge tube…[Writing in 1879 in a different paper], Crookes wrote, "In studying this Fourth state of Matter we seem at length to have within our grasp and obedient to our control the little indivisible particles which with good warrant are supposed to constitute the physical basis of the Universe" (Crookes, Nature 20, 1879). ALSO IN THIS VOLUME: First edition of James Clerk Maxwell's proposal for measuring the ether, a critical prelude to Michelson-Morley's great 'failed' experiment -- a work that set "new standards of reference of time and space from geometry and cosmometry" [and] ultimately leading to Einstein's 1905 proposal that the speed of light is a universal constant" (Lightman, 130). In this paper, Maxwell argues "that the velocity of the earth with respect to the ether alters the velocity of light by a quantity depending on the square of the ratio of the earth's velocity to that of light which he described as 'quite too small to be observed' (Staley, Einstein's Generation, 46). "Michelson did not accept this impossibility and started thinking of detecting the effect" (Soni, Mechanics and Relativity, 286). ALSO IN THIS VOLUME: First edition of an 1880 paper by Huggins entitled "On the Photographic Spectra of Stars." In 1876 the author presented "a preliminary note on the subject of this paper, together with a diagram of the spectrum of Vega compared with that of the sun." (Proceedings 30, 1879, 20). The invention of a more perfect driving clock by Grubb enabled Huggins to resume his work with greater success. Herein, Huggins describes "the special apparatus and the methods of working which have been employed" (ibid). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Harrison & Sons. Complete volume. 8vo. 8.5 by 5.5 inches (213 x 138mm). [ix], 1, [599], 1, [vi], 3. Ex-libris with two stamps on the title page and no exterior markings whatsoever. In-text illustrations throughout. Handsomely rebound in half calf over aged marbled paper boards, gilt-lettered at the spine. Five gilt-ruled raised bands at the spine; each compartment gilt tooled. Marbled text block. Bright and clean throughout. Very good condition in every way.

        On the Photographic Spectra of Stars" in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Volume 30, 1879-1880, pp. 20-22

      First edition of an 1880 paper by Huggins entitled "On the Photographic Spectra of Stars." In 1876 the author presented "a preliminary note on the subject of this paper, together with a diagram of the spectrum of Vega compared with that of the sun." (Proceedings 30, 1879, 20). The invention of a more perfect driving clock by Grubb enabled Huggins to resume his work with greater success. Herein, Huggins describes in greater detail "the special apparatus and the methods of working which have been employed" (ibid). "In 1868, English astronomer Sir William Huggins (1824-1910) was the first to apply spectroscopy and the Doppler shift (described elsewhere) to estimate the motion of the Solar System relative to the stars. He found that the Earth was receding from Sirius by about 29 miles per second after compensating for the effect of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. Huggins did not determine how much of the proper motion was attributable to our Solar System and how much to the star" (Wenner Collection). ALSO IN THIS VOLUME: First edition of James Clerk Maxwell's proposal for measuring the ether, a critical prelude to Michelson-Morley's great 'failed' experiment -- a work that set "new standards of reference of time and space from geometry and cosmometry" [and] ultimately leading to Einstein's 1905 proposal that the speed of light is a universal constant" (Lightman, 130).

        Suite of manuscript material relating to 'Birds of New Guinea' and 'Birds of Asia.'

      London & Maidstone: dated between 4 September 1879 & 23 December, 1880. Four single sheets; including two printed receipts from Gould, 13.5 x 21 cm, both completed in manuscript, one with internal revenue stamp and signature of Gould, old folds, some chipping and small tears to edges; purchase order from Maidstone Museum, 12.5 x 16 cm, printed in red and completed in manuscript; and a fourth on Gould's letterhead, 20 x 12.5 cm, address printed in blue at head, manuscript date and "with Mr Gould's complts. & thanks" in a secretarial (?) hand. Four interesting pieces of ephemera regarding the sale of Gould's monumental Birds of New Guinea and Birds of Asia to the Maidstone Museum in 1880. Included is a "with compliments" slip on Gould's personal letterhead, and, on one of the receipts, Gould's unsteady signature acknowledging payment; he died only three months later, and both of the works being discussed here were completed by R. Bowdler Sharpe.The four documents track the sale of the two works to Maidstone Museum in Kent, still recognised as a prominent natural history museum, and then curated by the expert on South American birds and keen ornithologist, Edward Bartlett. The first two pieces in this collection are orders payable raised on the banker Drummonds, ordering the two works then in preparation, the Birds of Asia (1850-1883) and the Birds of New Guinea (1875-1888). One of these orders has an inland revenue stamp and record of moneys received, with Gould's shaky signature.The third document is a purchase order from the Borough of Maidstone, dated 11 August 1880, authorising the payment of nine guineas, signed by various local dignitaries.The fourth, which effectively completes the transaction, is on Gould's letterhead, and is evidently the note forwarded to Maidstone, "with Mr Gould's compts. & thanks": this is in a neat and legible hand, and given the nature of the signature of Gould for the receipt of monies on the same day, must be secretarial.John Gould (1804-1881), started out as a London taxidermist, and in 1823 was appointed to the staff of the Zoological Society of London. Gould's career really began with the publication of two works, his Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains (1831-1832) and The Birds of Europe (1832-1837). His magnificent Birds of Australia began to be published in London in 1840, less than two years after he had first arrived in Hobart. Gould's work on birds was followed by his equally monumental work on the mammals of Australia.Now reverently known as the 'Bird Man', manuscripts relating to his career have long been assiduously collected.
