        Zwei Gesamtansichten von Montreal vom Mount Royal aus gesehen mit dem St. Lorenz und, der Victoria Bridge im Hintergrund, im Vordergrund das (damalige) städtische Wasserreservoir. Orig.-Photos.

      Um 1880-85.. Je 18 x 22 cm. Albuminabzüge. Auf Kartons montiert. Jeweils verso von alter Hand bezeichnet. Sehr gute, frische Abzüge.. Beide Aufnahmen müssen von nahezu genau demselben Standort aus aufgenommen worden sein, jedoch zu verschiedenen Zeiten, da ein bei einer Aufnahme noch im Bau befindliches großes Gebäude auf dem zweiten Photo vollendet ist. (ältere Aufnahmen aus der Zeit zwischen 1865-75 zeigen hier noch zum Teil freie Flächen). William Notman begann als Daguerreotypist in seiner ursprünglichen Heimat Glasgow. 1856 wanderte er nach Canada aus und gründete ein Studio in Montreal, wo er kurz darauf zum offiziellen Photographen von Queen Victoria in Canada ernannt wurde. Er gehörte bald zu den führenden Photographen Canadas und insbesondere Quebecs. Seine drei Söhne William McFarlane jr., Charles und George wurden ebenfalls Photographen und arbeiteten ab 1870 im väterlichen Studio (bis Charles den Betrieb 1934 verkaufte). Notman und seine Söhne hinterließen ein immenses Werk mit Stadtansichten von Montreal u.a. kanadischer Städte, Landschaftsaufnahmen, Portraits berühmter Persönlichkeiten wie z.B. Buffalo Bill, Bildnisse von Trappern, Aufnahmen von Football-Matches, Schiffen und Eisenbahnen, der Caribou-Jagd, Vögeln etc. etc. Das Mc.Cord Museum of Canadian History in Montreal beherbergt das "Notman Photographical Archive" mit einem Bestand von über 450.000 Photographien und Glasnegativen aus dem 78jährigen Bestehens des Studios und seiner Dependancen.

Originally published between 1776 and 1788, this ground-breaking work has been read by historians of Rome and Byzantium ever since.

Wilhelm Ludwig Rosenberg hatte zuvor bereits als Publizist in Frankfurt am Main gearbeitet und die Antiszialistengesetze zwangen ihn im Herbst 1880 zur Auswanderung in die Vereinigten Staaten (Quelle: Katja Rampelmann - "Im Licht der Vernunft").. Erste Separatausgabe. New York, Im Verlage von W. L. Rosenberg (Wilhelm Ludwig Rosenberg), 1886. 12°. 92, (2) Seiten. Original Softcover / Originale Titelbroschur. Nur minimal angerändert ist die original erhaltene, sehr fragile Broschurausgab dieses ersten Separatdrucks eine kleine Sensation. Büchner's Danton war zuvor nur in den Nachgelassenen Schriften erschienen und wurde hier erstmals vom Sozialisten und Sektretär der Sozialistischen Arbeiterpartei Amerikas und Redakteur der amerikanischen Ausgabe von "Die Fackel", "Vorwärts" und "New York Socialist" herausgegeben. Wilhelm Ludwig Rosenberg hatte zuvor bereits als Publizist in Frankfurt am Main gearbeitet und die Antiszialistengesetze zwangen ihn im Herbst 1880 zur Auswanderung in die Vereinigten Staaten (Quelle: Katja Rampelmann - "Im Licht der Vernunft"). Wilhelm Ludwig "William" Rosenberg (1850-unknown, 1930s) was a German-American teacher, poet, playwright, journalist, and socialist political activist. He is best remembered as the head of the Socialist Labor Party of America from 1884 to 1889. Wilhelm Ludwig Rosenberg was born in Hamm, Westphalia, Germany in January 1850. Rosenberg was university educated, and worked as a teacher of Latin and French in Frankfurt am Main. Rosenberg was politically radical from an early age and was a contributor to Die Neue Welt (The New World), a German socialist newspaper. Rosenberg was forced to emigrate from Germany in 1880 under the pressure of the Anti-Socialist Laws of 1878, landing in America. Rosenberg resumed life as a teacher in Boston and joined the fledgling Socialist Labor Party of America (SLP). Rosenberg subsequently moved to Chicago, where he served as editor of a succession of politically oriented newspapers, including Die Fackel (Sunday edition of the Chicagoer Arbeiter-Zeitung, 1881-1884), the SLP's official organ, Der Sozialist (1885?-1889), Der Tramp (New York, 1888), and Vorwärts, (New York City, from 1892). (Wikipedia) While in Chicago, Rosenberg wrote politically charged plays to be performed in the several working-class theatres of the city.[7] One of these dramas, Die Nihilisten (The Nihilists), was performed in honor of the Paris Commune in 1882 and featured three future defendants in the 1886 Haymarket affair — Michael Schwab, August Spies, and Oscar Neebe — playing leading roles.[7] The play dealt with legal proceedings against a group of Nihilists in Tsarist Russia, who were sentenced to exile in Siberia, and finally freed by their comrades following the overthrow of the Tsar.[8] In the May 18, 1882 performance in North Side Turner Hall, the role of the liberators was played by members of the local Lehr-und-Wehr Verein (Education and Defense Society), an armed workers' militia movement sweeping the German-American radical community in the Chicago area at the time.[8] The implications of this casting could not be missed. Another play by Rosenberg, Die Tochter des Proletairiers (The Proletarian's Daughter) was performed at the 1883 celebration of the Paris Commune in Chicago.[8] This play dealt with the daughter of a class-conscious worker who fell in love with the son of a factory owner and was subsequently repudiated by her father.[8] By 1883 the membership of the SLP had fallen to an estimated 1500 members in just 30 Sections, a depressing atrophy which had led to the abandonment of the organization in April of that year even by its nominal head, Corresponding Secretary Philip Van Patten.[9] Two individuals filled the role on a temporary basis for the rest of the year, culminating in the party's 4th National Convention in December 1883. There the 16 delegates, in an effort to forge links with non-party revolutionary socialists in an effort to keep them out of the camp of the rival anarchist movement, decided to steer the organization on a leftward course, curtaining the authority of the governing National Executive Committee and abolishing the centralizing post of Corresponding Secretary altogether in an effort to render the SLP a more decentralized organization amenable to the revolutionary left.[10]

        Extracts from the Coran

      London: Trübner & Co.,, 1880. In the original with English rendering. Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles to front board gilt, geometric border blind-stamped to top and bottom edges of boards, brown coated endpapers. Author's signature to front board in black ink, similar presentation inscription to half-title. Slightly rubbed with strip of mild cockling to front board, corners and ends of spine lightly bumped, edges lightly foxed. A very good copy. First edition of Muir's uncommon volume of extracts from the Qur'an, printed in Arabic with English translations. Presentation copy with no stated recipient but, unusually, an elaborate further inscription to the front board. Muir (1819-1905), orientalist employed by the Bengal civil service, states that he had originally intended to produce a trilingual work with renderings into Urdu as well, but was advised by his "Mahometan friends … that the very act of using extracts selected from it would be held a desecration". Here finally published, the author affirms that "There can be no better introduction to this noble tongue, than the eloquent lessons of the Prophet himself"; in his other works, notably his chef d'œuvre "Life of Mahomet and History of Islam to the Era of the Hegira" (London, 1858-61) and "The Coran: Its Composition and Teaching; And the Testimony it Bears to the Holy Scriptures" (London, 1878), Muir professes a similar sympathy for Muhammad but as an evangelical Christian cannot bring himself to credit Muhammad's divine calling, concluding instead that the Prophet was mentally deranged. Rather uncommon institutionally, with Copac giving eight copies in UK libraries and OCLC adding nine worldwide, and rare in commerce.

        A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF 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 ACCOUNT OF "THE VIRTUAL CONQUEST OF CALIFORNIA, IN JUNE, 1846, BY THE BEAR FLAG PARTY."

      [Claremont, N.H.]: Printed for the subscribers, [1880]. - [2],239,[1]pp. Half title. 12mo. Original purple morocco, stamped in blind and gilt, rebacked at an early date, a.e.g. Very good. Provenance: E. Truman Ide (signature on half title and inked stamp on the final leaf). An Ide family association copy, with the ink stamp of E. Truman Ide of Denver on the front free endpaper and final leaf of text, and his signature (at Elgin, Illinois) on the half title. "This SKETCH contains an account of the early years of W.B. Ide, recollections by his daughter of the family's trip across the plains to California in 1845, and an account of the Bear Flag revolt of 1846 as told by Ide to his brother in 1849, and in a letter to a Senator Wambough which, as Ide died in 1852, must have been written within a few years of the event. [An] interesting account of the overland journey of 1845 and important source on the beginnings of American rule in California in 1846." - Streeter. The work is also important in that it is one of the few overland journals written from the point of view of a woman (Ide's daughter, who at eighteen accompanied her father west in 1845), and is unique in its exclusive treatment of the Bear Flag Revolt. Howes speculates that this first edition, printed by the author at the age of eighty-six on a handpress, "was probably small." A rare and important California book. HOWES I4, "b." STREETER SALE 2967.

        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. Title page with small triangular repair done with archival tape along inner edge. There were somewhere between 325 and 500 original copies in this state, rarely found separately bound in contemporary boards with the advertisements saved. A scarce copy of one of Nietzsches most penetrating books. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. 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.

La Tour-de-Peiz, am Nordufer des Genfer Sees im Schweizer Kanton Waadt gelegen und mit Vevey zu einer Siedlung verschmolzen. Verso alte Zuschreibung an Bertha Schrader, die aber der Sammler bereits infrage stellte. Provenienz: Sammlung W.E. Ludwig Blucke, Dresden. C.W. Müller war 1858-1864 Schüler von L. Richter (1803-1884). Zusammen mit V.P. Mohn (1842-1911) und A.L. Venus (1843-1886) hielt er sich 1865/66 1866 in Rom auf; ein Aufenthalt in Düsseldorf ist für das Jahr 1880 zu belegen. Er war der Schwager von A. Venus und W. Claudius (1854-1942). Als Landschaftsmaler tätig, schwankte Müller zwischen dem kühnen Realismus, wie er ihn in seiner Frühzeit pflegte, und den verblassenden Idealen der Spätromantik.

Contemp. green half calf with gilt spine and title "Egypte & Nubie", initialef "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, reproduceing 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. - 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.
