        Autograph letter signed in full to the music critic Max Schütz

      . On a postal card. Postmarked Prague, January 23, 1881. In German (with translation). Dvorak informs Schütz that he has written to Simrock and goes on to mention three of his compositions: op. 54, the waltzes for piano, composed between December 1st 1879 and January 17th, 1880; op. 55, the Zigeunerlieder (Gypsy songs), composed between February 18th and 23rd, 1880; and op. 57, the sonata in F major for violin and piano, composed between March 3rd and 17th, 1880. "To hear from you that the Zigeunerlieder have met with your favour pleases me greatly. You are going to receive the violin sonata and the two volumes of waltzes for piano solo. More next time!" Slightly browned. In very good condition overall.. "With Smetana, Fibich and Janacek [Dvorak] is regarded as one of the great nationalist Czech composers of the 19th century. Long neglected and dismissed by the German-speaking musical world as a naive Czech musician, he is now considered by both Czech and international musicologists Smetana's true heir. He earned worldwide admiration and prestige for 19th- century Czech music with his symphonies, chamber music, oratorios, songs and, to a lesser extent, his operas." Klaus Döge in Grove online Op. 54 "Although Dvorak was an accomplished pianist, writing for the piano was never as important to him as, for example, orchestral or chamber music. His piano works are mainly entertaining dances and character-pieces rather than musically and technically ambitious sonatas, fantasias and etudes... The eight Waltzes b101 (1879-1880)... are reminiscent of Chopin but are considerably more natural-sounding and direct." ibid Op. 55 "The song cycle, Gipsy Melodies, was written for and dedicated to an admirer of the composer's songs, Gustav Walter, tenor singer of the Vienna Court Opera. As a compliment to Walter, Dvorak set the German translations especially prepared for him by the poet himself, instead of using Adolf Heyduk's Czech verses... The songs display far more assurance than any Dvorak has written previously....Dvorak's skill in using the voice is much greater than before... The music may not be similar to the gipsy music with which we are most familiar, but it embodies gipsy elements, and is at the same time pure Dvorak." Clapham, pp. 232-33 Op. 57 The only sonata of Dvorak's to survive, the sonata for violin and piano, op. 57, "marks Dvorak's first success in writing satisfactorily for the piano in a chamber music work... [It] represents Dvorak at his most intimate..." ibid, p. 194 Dvorak's correspondent Max Schütz was a music critic for the German-language daily Pester Lloyd, published in Budapest.

        Shoryu ikebana hayashinan [trans.: Instructions for Flower Arrangements]

      36 full-page woodcut illus. (four finely handcolored). 27 folding leaves, each interleaved within the folds with other printed texts. Small 8vo, orig. wrappers, stitched as issued. Tokyo: 1881. An interesting and uncommon book on the art of flower arrangement. What makes this book so potentially special is that we find hidden in the folding leaves other printed texts "laid-in" (really interleaved within the folds) on political and military subjects. We cannot decide whether this is simply waste-paper used to bulk up the book or whether this was a clandestine method of circulating "forbidden" texts. Fine copy of an attractive book. .

        [Manuscript document stamped and signed at each of the founding municipalities of Vera Paz]

      1881. A very good copy, some minor staining at the corners, perhaps where sealed. 31 x 22 cm. In line with the Spanish policy of "Congregation," the Friar Pedro de Angulo attempted to gather the Indians in the area of Vera Paz province into larger, and thus more manageable, settlements, or ?reducciones,? as detailed in Captain Martin Alfonso Tovilla's account of 1635. Angulo succeeded in establishing ten villages by 1543 according to Tovilla: Santo Domingo de Cobán, San Pedro Carchá, San Agustín Lanquin, Santa Maria Chagbon [Cahabon], Santa Cruz Munchú, San Cristobal Caccho, Santa María Tactic, San Pablo de Tamaún, and San Miguel Tucurú, though additional settlements were added including La Tinta (Santa Cruz Cahaboncillo), Senahú, and Panzos. To commemorate this deed, a fast cordillera carrier was sent to make a circuit of these same villages, a feat he accomplished in 10 days. In 12 towns, an official has signed, dated, and usually stamped the document.

        CRONACA BIZANTINA Periodico letterario, sociale, artistico. Si pubblica due volte al mese.

      Roma, Angelo Sommaruga, 1881-1885. In folio (mm. 460x320), mz. pelle coeva, ogni numero di pp. 8-12, stampa a due colori con bellissimi capilettera e fregi nel t. Di questo mitico periodico letterario romano offriamo "tutto il pubblicato" - dall?'editore Angelo Sommaruga - in 90 fascicoli: dal n. 1, Anno I, 15 giugno 1881 al n. 6, Anno V, 16 marzo 1885. Vi è compreso il n. 12 del 16 giugno 1884, sequestrato per la ?"Proposta ai Parlamenti per un sovrano costituzionale modello?" (dal "Libro delle Bizzarrie" di Carlo Dossi). ?"La "Cronaca" diede il posto d?'onore al Carducci e il suo nome era una delle massime attrazioni del periodico. I poeti che vi pubblicarono versi una o parecchie volte furono: Guerrini, Boito, D?'Annunzio, Salvadori, Marradi, Pascarella, Milelli, la Contessa Clara, Pascoli (per una breve collaborazione) e pochi altri. Novelle e bozzetti e prose vi pubblicarono il Verga, il Capuana, il De Amicis, la Serao, lo Scarfoglio, il Sommaruga medesimo. Scritti di varia umanità introdussero nella "Bizantina" gli scrittori più in voga e quelli che promettevano: il Guerrini, il Nencioni, il Chiarini, il Lessona, il Pica, il Di Giacomo. Sono in ogni numero della Cronaca articoli mondani, atti a destare l?'interesse delle belle signore e dei giovani galanti e molti di questi articoli scrisse Matilde Serao che nel 1885 doveva sposare Edoardo Scarfoglio. La vita della "Cronaca" comunque fu essenzialmente legata alla fortuna di Angelo Sommaruga e vale per la bellezza dell?'edizione, per la scelta di nome e di scritti, ordinata allo scopo del successo editoriale. Il 3 maggio 1885 la Cronaca risorge fondendosi con la ?'Domenica Letteraria?' che però dà il titolo maggiore al giornale: e finisce col n. 28 del 7 novembre. Quindi risorge il 15 dicembre 1885, e questa volta diretta da Gabriele D?'Annunzio. Ha come sottotitolo ?'Domenica Letteraria?'. Ma parlare di questa nuova ?'Cronaca Bizantina?' non occorre. L?'età eroica è quella sommarughiana?". Così Francesco Flora su ?"Pegaso?", dicembre 1930, pp. 680-98. Solo i primi due e l?'ultimo numero con antichi restauri per strappi; uniformi arross. su alc. pagg., altrim. esemplare ben conservato.

        Rare book from the Library of James A. Garfield and used by him as President ? his personal copy of the 1881 ?Manual for the Use of the Legislature of the State of New York?

      "Protesting a Garfield appointment in their state, U.S. Senators Conkling and Platt resigned on May 16, 1881, and then sought reelection by the Republican majority in the N.Y. State Legislature to show their strong party support at home. The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of their books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below:Book ?Manual for the Use of the Legislature of the State of New York. 1881. Prepared pursuant to a Resolution of the Senate and Assembly of 1865, by Joseph B. Carr, Secretary of State,? 588 pages, 4? x 6.25?. Albany: Weed, Parsons and Company, 1881. Bound in red cloth with a double-line gilt rectangle at perimeters of covers. Gilt lettered on cover: ""President Garfield. / Compliments of / Joseph B. Carr / Secretary of State.? Spine professionally reconstructed and attached to the covers; five raised bands on spine, gilt-lettered in three compartments: ?Manual for / Legislature / Joseph B. Carr / 1881.? Fold-out diagrams of the New York State Senate Chamber (9.75? x 12?) and the New York State Assembly Chamber (11? x 12?) affixed to first free-endpaper. The name of each member and his seat location is on each diagram, as well as the officers and newspaper reporters. Garfield?s 2.5? x 1.25? bookplate ?Library of / James A. Garfield. / Inter Folia Fructus.? affixed inside front cover. Very good condition.The State Legislature convened in Albany on January 3, 1881. One of its first actions took place on January 13th when a joint caucus of the Republicans in the Senate and the Assembly nominated Thomas C. Platt of Tioga County as the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate. Elected to the United States Senate by the Republican-controlled state legislature, Platt served from March 4, 1881, to May 16, 1881, when he resigned because of a disagreement with President James A. Garfield, also a Republican, over federal appointments in New York. His Republican colleague Roscoe Conkling, who had represented New York in the U.S. Senate since 1867, also resigned in protest. Thinking they had the support of their party in the New York state legislature, Platt and Conkling announced their candidacy to succeed themselves. Undoubtedly, Garfield used this book listing the members of the state legislature who would elect the new U.S. Senator. After President Garfield was shot on July 2nd, ?The New York Times? reported that ?Mr. Conkling feared that some of his enemies would work up the impression that his resignation as a United States Senator and the subsequent events had precipitated the assault upon President Garfield.? When Charles Guiteau shot Garfield, he proclaimed, ?I am a Stalwart! Arthur is now President of the United States!? Conkling was the leader of the Stalwart wing of the New York Republican party which had successfully placed Stalwart Chester Arthur on the 1880 Republican ticket. In late July, the New York State Legislature elected two incumbent Republican Congressmen to replace Platt and Conkling. After the beloved President died on September 19th, Conkling refused to reenter politics. ?How can I speak into a grave? How can I battle with a shroud?? he asked. ?Silence is a duty and a doom.? In 1882, President Arthur nominated and the U.S. Senate confirmed Roscoe Conkling as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Conkling, who had resumed his New York law practice, declined. ?The New York Times? suggested that his reasons were twofold: the salary was too low and there was no patronage."

        UNCLE REMUS His Songs and His Sayings the Folk-Lore of the Old Plantation

      New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1881. First edition. Near Fine. First printing with "presumptive" on page 9 and the correct ads in the back. (BAL 7100) A lovely, Near Fine copy of the book with bright gilt and clean boards. Light rubbing at the spine ends, minor separation within the page block and a short 1/4 inch tear at the inner margin of the title page. A total of eight plates, including the frontis, with several other illustrations within the text. First published in 1881, Uncle Remus was a landmark collection of African American fables and oral tradition that was adapted and edited by Joel Chandler Harris. The work includes 185 tales, which are woven together through the character of Uncle Remus, an older ex-slave who tells the stories to a group of children. The stories were actually written in dialect and many of them center around the character of Br'er (Brother) Rabbit, a kind of clever trickster. Read widely, the book was extremely popular as many people had not been exposed to the tales, lifestyles, and ways of speaking that book depicted. Mark Twain himself was a fun: "...in the matter of writing [the African-American dialect], he is the only master the country has produced." Despite its acclaim, the book has been somewhat controversial, with some questioning Harris' role in shaping the stories themselves. "But it is not merely as a collection of folk- lore that this book deserves notice. It is a valuable study of dialect..." (Contemporary review in The Dial). On both the Grolier Club's and Merle Johnson's lists for most important works of American literature. Near Fine.

Er resizierte bereits 2 Monate vor Billroth, am 16. November 1880, ein großes Pyloruskarzinom. Der Patient verstarb 12 Stunden nach der Operation. Die von Billroth im Janur 1881 operierte Patientin überlebte 4 Monate.

In 1866 he opened a studio in New York, where he painted and engraved portraits of many distinguished 19th-century Americans for the next forty years.

A very good copy, rear board rubbed, edges foxed, binder's stamp and bookplate of Glasgow Archaeological Society on front pastedown. 4to. Published in Archivos do Museu Nacional do Rio De Janeiro. Volume V. 1880. Added title page: Petro nomine ac imperio primo Brasiliensis imperii perpetuo defensore ... jubente, Flora fluminensis a' fr.

XXV, imperii IV. José Xavier Veloso (1742-1811), born in what is now Minas Gerais, Brazil, was ordained in 1766 in the convent of St. Anthony in Rio de Janeiro, where he studied philosophy and theology, later Geometry in San Paulo, and finally natural history. He collected plants, animals, and minerals in the Rio de Janeiro area from 1783 to 1790 at which time he moved to Lisbon where he worked at the Royal Academy of Sciences while preparing Florae Fluminensis, his greatest work, for publication. Using the Linnaeus? system of sexual classification of plants, he prepared very highly detailed texts and 1700 prints, many of them of new species. But the publication of the work was beset by problems. First sent to Venice, the plates were never completed. Later the French invasion of the Iberian peninsular, sent the Portuguese government, then Veloso and his manuscripts, into exile in Brazil, where he died in 1811. In 1825 an abbreviated version of the text was published, followed by the eleven volumes of the Icones in 1827, of which few copies survive. The complete text was not published until this edition in 1881. Rodrigues 2473. Sabin 98833n. For the shorter version of 1825 see: Barba de Moraes II, p. 343. Pritzel 468. Jackson 377.

        THE OUTLAW BROTHERS, FRANK AND JESSE JAMES. LIVES AND ADVENTURES OF THE SCOURGES OF THE PLAINS

      Published by Richard K. Fox, Proprietor Police Gazette, [1881]., 1881. 8vo. Pictorial yellow and black wrappers, [5], 67 pp. plus 7 pages of advertisements, frontispiece. Top of front panel says "Fifth Edition" and shows a picture of a hanged man, inside front cover and inside rear and back cover are advertisements. This is a rare item and we have only seen two other copies in the past years that state "Second Edition" at the top of the front cover. It has been said that this booklet was printed in a small quantity and as they sold and more were needed the publisher printed them as if sales were so good that another edition was needed. We don't know what actually was the reasoning, but this copy matches identically with all bibliographical sources. Six Guns 542 says "Rare." "Another example of the Police Gazette's historically worthless outlaw series, which have now become rare collector's items." Light wear to the spine ends, and moderate wear to the edges, else a very good copy housed in a quarter leather and cloth clamshell case with raised bands on the spine and titles stamped in gold gilt on the spine.

William Edgar Marshall began his life in art as an engraver of watch-cases, graduated to vignette work for the American Bank Note Company, and studied painting in Europe in 1863-65. He returned to America in the latter year, when he painted and engraved a portrait of the late President Lincoln. In 1866 he opened a studio in New York, where he painted and engraved portraits of many distinguished 19th-century Americans for the next forty years. Some areas of very light foxing but Very Good overall and quite uncommon [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Chambered Nautilus (longhand) signed 2/8/1881 framed

      Boston: self, 1881. First Edition First Printing . Soft cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. This is a framed sheet, handwritten, signed and dated by Holmes of the last verse of his 1858 poem The Chambered Nautilus. "Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul, As the swift seasons roll! Leave thy low-vaulted past! Let each new temple, nobler than the last, Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till thou at length art free, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea! Oliver Wendell Holmes Boston Feb. 8th 1881" The sheet is mildly age darkened, but very clear. It lies on a plain piece of cardboard in an ordinary dark brown frame that to our inexpert eye seems to be from the period. There's some faint damp stain at the corners of the cardboard, but not on Holmes' piece. Holmes must have particularly liked this piece as repeated this action in later years.
