        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Salzburg, 23. IV. 1881.. 2 SS. 8vo.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Verleger: "Der durchschlagende Erfolg meiner Welfenbraut [ ] veranlasst mich dem ersten Kunstblatte der musikalischen Welt den Originalbericht aus der Feder des ersten maßgebenden Kritikers der Correspondenten für u. a. Deutschland Dr. Carl Hamann mit der Bitte einzusenden eine Notiz in Ihrem geschätzten Blatte gütigst umgehend aufnehmen zu wollen [ ]". - Sayn-Wittgenstein machte als österreichischer Offizier die Feldzüge 1859 in Italien und 1864 in Schleswig-Holstein mit, bildete (unter Julius Rietz in Leipzig) sein musikalisches Talent aus und verließ 1865 den Militärdienst. Von seinen unter dem Namen F. E. Wittgenstein bekannt gewordenen Kompositionen sind außer zahlreichen Liedern (seit 1865) das Chorwerk "Szenen aus der Fritjofsage" (Darmstadt 1874) sowie die Opern "Die Welfenbraut" (Graz 1879) und "Antonius und Kleopatra" (Graz, 1883) hervorzuheben.

        EARLY SPRING IN MASSACHUSETTS. From the Journal of Henry D. Thoreau

      Boston Houghton Mifflin at the Riverside Press 1881 - First edition. 8vo, publisher’s original forest-green cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and with Thoreau’s facsimile signature in gilt on the upper cover, t.e.g. vii, 318 pp. A very handsome and fresh copy, internally very clean and tight, the green cloth with only very light age evidence. SCARCE FIRST EDITION. This was the first of Henry David Thoreau’s journals to be published posthumously. Thoreau's sister Sophia, who inherited his manuscript journals, bequeathed them upon her death in October, 1876, to her brother's friend and correspondent, Harrison G.O. Blake of Worcester, Mass. Mr. Blake wished to bring the thoughts imbedded in the Journals before the public and judged that a selection from the abundance of materials arranged according to the seasons was the most favorable way to accomplish his end. Thus Thoreau's private writings were first presented to the public in this form. According to the publisher’s records, only 1018 copies of the first edition were printed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.
