Friedrich Nietzsche
1880. Der Wanderer und Sein Schatten (The Wanderer and His Shadow) Friedrich Nietzsche Chemnitz, 1880 First Edition, First Issue in Original Wraps. UNCUT and complete! Wrapper edges and spine darkened. Upper spine and front corner through the first few pages chipped. Old seller pencil notes on rear wrapper and title page. Interior pages brightly beautiful. Very Good. A spectacular copy of one of Nietzsche's scarcest titles and the last installment in the Human All Too Human trilogy. Printed in an edition of 1000 copies, of which "Only 192 copies of this book were sold in this first edition, first issue state before the remainders were sold to E.W. Fritsch of Leipzig in 1886 - and then reissued with a new title page."(Schaberg) All of Nietzsche's works in original, unrestored wraps are of utmost rarity. And to add even more gravitas, this copy is hand-marked by the publisher on the front cover corner for special presentation to Nietzsche's closest associates: "Gratis im Auftrage des Verfassers" [Free on behalf of the author] 'Nietzsche remained respected in his professorial position in Basel, but his deteriorating health, which led to migraine headaches, eyesight problems and vomiting, necessitated his resignation from the university in June, 1879, at age 34. At this point, he had been a university professor for ten years, and had just less than another ten years of productive intellectual life remaining. From 1880 until his collapse in January 1889, Nietzsche led a wandering, gypsy-like existence as a stateless person (having given up his German citizenship, and not having … [Click Below for Full Description]

c. 1880. Original wraps. Wonderful album of period, captioned photos of "Fortress Monroe", which was a Union stronghold in Hampton, VA, at the southern tip of the Viginia Peninsula, also known as "Freedom Fortress". The album inlcudes 25 pasted-in photographs (including 2 panoramics) of Ft. Monroe and the Old Point Comfort. Among them are photos of the "colored" Normal school, the building in which Jefferson Davis was imprisoned, the U.S.S. Maine and the U.S.S. Columbia. The album has held up very nicely in its dark-blue, ribbon-tied card wrappers, with circular exterior-shot of Fortress Monroe affixed to the front panel. Light rubbing to the titling, otherwise clean as could be, with each photo in near-pristine to pristine condition. Oblong quarto, c. 1880. Near Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]

Bei anstehenden Fragen, wenden Sie sich bitte an uns. [FRANZÖSISCHE KUNST XIX - REALISTISCHE SCHULE] ALEXANDRE ANTIGNA 1817-1878 Bewegung: Realismus Masters: Norblin, Paul Delaroche Alexandre Antigna, geboren am 7. März 1817 in Orleans und starb am 26. Februar 1878 in Paris ist ein französischer Maler. Biografie 1839 an der Kunsthochschule in Paris zugelassen, damals Schüler von Sebastien Norblin In sieben Jahren von Paul Delaroche ist Alexandre Antigna vor allem der Maler der Bescheidenen, wie seine berühmtesten Werke beweisen: Lightyear (1848, Augustinian Museum von Toulouse), das Feuer (1850-1851, Orleans Museum of Fine Arts) oder Der erzwungene HaltE (1855, Augustinian Museum von Toulouse). In den 1850er Jahren seine Malerei Nach dem Bad (oder Les Baigneuses, 1849, Orleans Museum of Fine Arts) ist in seiner Heimatstadt skandalös. Antigna, der sehr schnell unter den Realisten eingestuft wurde und sich in der Nähe von Gustave Courbet befindet, hebt sich noch immer von dem Meister der Ornans ab, durch die Poesie und Religion, von denen er seine Untertanen durchdringt. Gelassener wird er ab 1860 insbesondere in Portraits von Aragonese, Meereslandschaften und vielen Szenen in der Bretagne dargestellt. Seine Themen befassen sich auch mit der Diskriminierung zwischen Stadtbewohnern und armen Dorfbewohnern im 19. Jahrhundert. 1861 heiratete er Hélène-Marie Pettit, ebenfalls Malerin und Enkelin von Ambroise Rendu. Ihr Sohn André- … [Click Below for Full Description]

Reliure de l'époque signée (signature malheureusement difficile à lire : L. HOU??). Exemplaire très frais, tant au niveau de la reliure que de l'intérieur (rousseurs claires sans gravité). VÉRITABLE DEUXIÈME ÉDITION. L'histoire de cette édition est trop passionnante pour être passée sous silence ici. La première édition de Des vers est mise en vente dès le 27 avril 1880. Elle parait sous la célèbre couverture jaune de l'éditeur Charpentier. Banville qui en avait alors reçu un exemplaire sur chine (le seul ?) donne un compte-rendu élogieux dans le National du 10 mai 1880. Le recueil de Maupassant est dédié à son ami Gustave Flaubert : "A Gustave Flaubert, à l'illustre et paternel ami que j'aime de toute ma tendresse, à l'irréprochable maître que j'admire avant tous." Dès la troisième édition, le volume s'ouvre avec une lettre de Flaubert à son "cher bonhomme" datée du Croisset, le 19 février 1880 (lettre extraite du Gaulois à cette date). La critique est très bonne dans l'ensemble mais cet ouvrage ne sera jamais le succès de librairie qu'on a parfois dit.

The complete run in two volumes, including the first volume, and the second volume (in two divisions, paginated separately, but bound together.) A sumptuous production, featuring many original etchings bound in, by artists including James Smillie, Paul Rajon, Thomas Moran (2 etchings), Peter Moran (2), J.M. Falconer, Albert F. Bellows, S.J.

There are about 135 full page plates among the two volumes, of which about 50 are original etchings. There may be some confusion on this point, as the table of contents specifies "original etching" only for those works conceived and etched by the same artist (i.e. pinxt. and sculp.) However, many works bound in here (listed merely as "etched by"), are clearly original etchings in terms of process, execution and printing. The distinction of "original etching" vs. "etched by" employed in this work is merely that the latter was made after a painting by another artist, but is sti … [Click Below for Full Description]

[N.p., c.1880].. Ten original photographs mounted on card with printed maroon ruled borders, uncaptioned but for three photos having "Levant" or "Levant School Mine" written into the negative, one of the photos with the old handwritten name of "Mr J.B. Matthews" on the verso of the board. Significant fading and yellowing to the prints, spotting, marking and darkening to the boards, slight lifting to the paper covering of a few of the boards, though the photographs remain fixed. The Levant Mining Company was founded in 1820, although copper mining had occurred on this site from at least the mid-18th century. In its early decades the mine was very profitable and in 1840 a beam engine had been installed to extract water from the mines. In 1857 a man engine was installed in order to get miners to and from the deepest mines. A fatal accident occurred in 1919 in which this failed and 31 miners were killed and many more injured. Within 11 years the mine had closed, partly due to the falling price of the copper, tin and arsenic that were mined here, but it could be argued that the mine never really recovered from the disaster. The images all feature group portraits of miners, sometimes in work clothes and hats or helmets, including one showing a row of topless and barefoot men wearing long shorts in the foreground. Seven of the photographs are posed in front of stone buildings at the Levant mine, the other three are set amidst some machinery on the site. A wonderful record of the ordinary working men of the day.

Elyot, Sir Thomas (1490?-1546).
London: C. Kegan Paul, 1880. Edited from the First Edition of 1531 by Henry Herbert Stephen Croft. Two volumes. cxcviii, 352p; x, 660p. Illustrated with frontispieces of Sir Thomas and Lady Elyot. Bound by Frost in half brown crushed morocco with cloth sides and marbled endpapers, t.e.g., the spines with gilt titles and panel ornaments. Very fine, and very handsome. Item #16529 This work is known chiefly as the first work on education in English. While it aimed at the education of princes, it was used by the upper classes as a model. "The twofold object of this work was 'to instruct men in such virtues as shall be expedient for them, which shall have authority in a weal public, and to educate those youths that hereafter may be deemed worthy to be governors." (DNB Vol. IV, p. 765). '"Elyot received little reward for his services to the state, but his scholarship and his books were held in high esteem by his contemporaries. The Boke named the Governour was printed by Thomas Berthelet (1531, 1534, 1536, 1544, etc.). It is a treatise on moral philosophy, intended to direct the education of those destined to fill high positions, and to inculcate those moral principles which alone could fit them for the performance of their duties. The subject was a favourite one in the 16th century, and the book, which contained many citations from classical authors, was very popular. Elyot expressly acknowledges his obligations to Erasmus's Institutio Principis Christiani but he makes no reference to the De regno et regis institutione of Francesco Patrizzi (d. 1494), bishop of Gaeta, on which h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Noritane Ninagawa
Tokyo: Published by the author, 1880. First editions 7 volumes, oblong portfolios, approx 10.5" x 15.5"; text in Japanese; 125 chromolithographic plates and one rubbing illustrating 231 notable pieces of Japanese pottery, lacking the French translations in octavo, but with the 6th and 7th portfolio volumes which were published later and are often missing. Blue paper covers edge-worn, stitched bindings weak at some points, the plates themselves exquisitely produced and in near fine condition with the occasional offsetting. Boards of the original folding case present but broken. Ninagawa Noritane was a member of the Meiji government's Museum Bureau, and was instrumental in the establishment of formal recognition of Japan's most important cultural properties. He traveled the country, cataloging the riches held by temples and shrines and gaining access to treasures that were restricted to all but those given permission directly from the imperial family. The end result of this work was the Jishin survey catalogue of temple and shrine treasures, which itself became an Important Cultural Property. This set is a product of that work, and in addition to being notable for its beautifully executed lithographs is arguably the foundational text of the modern study of Japanese ceramics.

1880. Lettera autografa in formato cm.19x12, con firma "Giuseppina Verdi", compilata su tre di quattro facciate. Dopo un ringraziamento di rito al destinatario per averle inviato un giornale "imitazione del Paris Musical", la celebre soprano, signora Verdi, si lancia in una accorata protesta, decisamente contrariata per non dire inviperita: "Imitazione! prendo assolutamente cappello con queste nostre eterne imitazioni dei francesi e dei tedeschi! Ma noi, ai nostri tempi non sapremo dunque mai prendere un'iniziativa qualunque e seguiremo sempre l'andazzo delle scimmie, che imitano fin dove possono quando vedono fare dagli altri? Mi sbaglio. In un particolare soltanto superiamo tutti (eccettuati forse i belgi in quest'ultimi mesi) ed è nelle inaugurazioni - feste - luminarie - banchetti, evviva urlati in tutti i toni nelle piazze, nelle sale, nei teatri.non sarebbe per avventura meglio festeggiare, ciarlatanare, urlare un po' meno e pensare un po' più ai casi nostri, alle nostre miserie interne e a quelle che potrebbero.piombarci addosso dal di fuori?". Una lettera piena di fuoco e molto attuale, scritta probabilmente di getto. Giuseppina Strepponi (Lodi, 1815 - Busseto, 1897), soprano, ottima esecutrice di Bellini e Donizetti, cantò per Verdi nell'Oberto (1839) e nel Nabucco (1842) per poi convolare a nozze con lui nel 1859. Cesare Vigna, amico di famiglia, fu direttore del Manicomio di S.Clemente, critico musicale della "Gazzetta Musicale di Milano" e amico di famiglia del Maestro di Busseto.

Spencer Summerfield Roche
Brooklyn: 1880. Very Good--overall very good condition, one or two volumes have some slight cracking starting at hinges, some slight wear to extremities of boards, but most are in fine condition. Original diaries of Spencer Summerfield Roche (1848-1916), Rector of St. Mark's Protestant Episcopal Church, Adelphi Street, Brooklyn, NY, and Chancellor of the Diocese of Long Island. These are original typewritten diaries, not published books. Typewritten diaries in 17 volumes, finely bound in fine full leather. The diaries are very engaging and straightforwardly written, and range far afield from clerical matters. In fact, the bulk of the diaries have little to do directly with the church, although there is a volume entitled "Founding a Cathedral" on the establishment of St. Mark's, and another 2 or 3 entitled "Anecdotes of Clergy." Roche was instrumental in establishing the St. Mark's Protestant Episcopal Church, which was at 232 Adelphi St. in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Later to become known as Carlton Mews Church, the building still stands and has been converted to luxury apartments. These diaries include cultured and vivid descriptions of European Grand Tour travel, with details of museums, artworks, etc., along with trips within the U.S. to Saratoga Springs (Roche summered there), Newport, the Berkshires. Notes on society, lectures, literature, and art abound, along with anecdotes (many based on personal encounters) of the great figures of the age such as August Belmont, Mark Twain (Roche gives a wonderfully detailed account of a Twain lecture he attended in person), William Ra … [Click Below for Full Description]
