Although hardly Byron's equal as a writer, her prose somwhat turgid, she nevertheless enjoyed popularity on account of the travel writing she and her husband did based on their travels in the Near East. Lady Anne was one of the most level-headed of all women travelers. To find out how the Bedouin lived, she lived like one herself: she became a temporary nomad, riding the two thousand miles from the Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf for the most part in Arab dress, and without guides. She and her husband were trusted and accepted by the Bedouin. Indeed, the Amir himself presented them with his choicest brood mares to take home for their famous Crabbet Arabian Stud.. Second Edition. Decorative Cloth. Very Good Minus. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

        Tasmanian Friends and Foes: Feathered, Furred and Finned

      London: Marcus Ward, 1881. Small quarto, with eight chromolithographic plates, a fine copy in original splendid gilt decorated cloth. Second edition of a beautifully illustrated Australian natural history book, specially written for children by pioneer Tasmanian novelist Louisa Anne Meredith. Louisa migrated to Australia in 1839 tp join her husband Charles who enjoyed mixed fortunes in the colony. As a young woman in England, Louisa was remarkable for her outspoken political views and public support of the Chartists. Life in Van Diemen's Land held it's own challenges, and despite the lonliness and isolation of pioneering life Louisa maintained a steady literary and artistic output. The abundant natural history fascinated her: 'she studied plants, insects, seaweeds and fish of Tasmania's east coast and was an active member of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and an honorary member of the Tasmanian Royal Society' (DNB). During the four years Louisa lived at Port Sorrell she diligently recorded everything of interest. One such event was the disappearance in 1846 of three little girls and a boy in the Sassafras Valley, later found by Louisa's husband Charles. This dramatic rescure was fictionalised in Tasmanian Friends and Foes, and although the book primarily describes animal life for younger readers topics such as convict servants and the Aborigines are encountered.

        SPECIAL MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IN RELATION TO THE PONCA INDIANS

      [Washington: Government Printing Office], 1881., 1881. First edition. 8vo. Original printed wrappers, 7 pp. President Hayes's attempt to redress the outrage done to the Ponca tribe by their forced removal from Nebraska to Indian Territory, where many of them died, during his administration. In 1876, Congress had passed an act to relocate the Poncas. Among the Poncas to die in the process was the son of Chief Standing Bear, who made his father promise to bury him along the Niobrara River in Nebraska. The sixty-five members of Standing Bear's clan, while going through Kansas, alarmed the settlers there, and were soon arrested by a cavalry detachment and taken to Omaha as prisoners. The Poncas, who had always been peaceful, were supported by General Crook, and two lawyers volunteered to take their case. It became a landmark case, and the 1879 decision established that Indians were equal under the law. Standing Bear was granted a reservation along the Niobrara. However other Poncas, including Standing Bear's brother, Big Snake, were not allowed to leave Indian Territory, and it is this problem that Hayes's message addresses. Hayes asserts that the Indian policy of the future should have Indians prepared for citizenship through education, with fair compensation for lands "not required for individual allotment ... In short, nothing should be left undone to show to the Indians that the Government of the United States regards their rights as equally sacred with those of its citizens." An important document. Fine copy.

        Autograph letter signed in full to the music critic Max Schütz

      On a postal card. Postmarked Prague, January 23, 1881. In German (with transcription and translation). & & Dvorák 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!" Uniformly browned. In very good condition overall. . "With Smetana, Fibich and Janácek [Dvorák] 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 Dvorák 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 études... 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, Dvorák 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 Dvorák has written previously....Dvorák'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 Dvorák." Clapham, pp. 232-233& & Op. 57& The only sonata of Dvorák's to survive, the sonata for violin and piano, op. 57, "marks Dvorák's first success in writing satisfactorily for the piano in a chamber music work... [It] represents Dvorák at his most intimate..." ibid, p. 194 & & Dvorák's correspondent Max Schütz was a music critic for the German-language daily Pester Lloyd, published in Budapest.

        Das Decameron der Verbannten. Mit Portraits un Illustrationen. Zeichnungen von G. Koch, Berlin. Epilog von August Dauben.

      Berlin, Verlag von Freund & Jeckel, 1881.. 163 S:; 12 x 16 cm Halbleinen, verst. Ecken, Frakturschrift, marmor. Schnitt. Erhaltung: gut, Papier leicht nachgedunkelt, gering stockfleckig, Seite 17 beschädigt, Text komplett. Statt eines Impressums bietet die Rückseite des Titelblattes folgende Informationen: Druck von Metzger & Wittig in Leipzig. Papier von Ferdinand Flinsch in Berlin. Zeichnungen von G. Koch in Berlin. Zinkätzung von E. Gaillard in Berlin. Zink, aus schlesischen Hütten. Druckerschwärze von C. Hostmann in Celle. Tinte von William Rosenberg in Berlin. Federn aus Rügenwalde in Pommern von eigens zu diesem Zwecke gezüchteten Gänsen. Eine wenig erfolgreiche Schauspielertruppe beschließt, um endlich einmal etwas Aussichtsreiches zu unternehmen, nach dem Vorbild des "Dekamerone des Burgtheaters" ein eigenes Dekamerone zu schreiben. Die einzelnen Mitglieder der Truppe, Soubrette und Erster Intrigant, Komiker, Mütter-Darstellerin und andere schreiben ihre Lebensgeschichte auf. Unterbrochen wird die Abfolge dieser Schauspielerbiographien durch einen Bericht über die Proben und Aufführungen der Truppe in dem Provinzstädtchen "K.", zu dem es in einer Anmerkung des Setzers heißt, dass es sich möglicherweise um "Kyritz an der Knatter" handeln könnte. Zur Aufführung kommen Schillers "Räuber", jedoch in einer den Ansprüchen des kleinstädtischen Publikums und den Möglichkeiten der Truppe angepassten Version. Feuer- und Degenschlucker, eine Trapezakrobatin und ein Bär beleben das klassische Stück. Der Kritiker des Lokalblattes äußert sich sehr lobend und hat nur zu bemängeln, dass der Darsteller des Franz Moor statt eines Fracks nur einen einfachen schwarzen Anzug ohne weiße Halsbinde trug. In einem zweiten Intermezzo werden die Rangeleien unter den Beteiligten geschildert: jede/jeder möchte seine Biographie möglichst weit vorn im Buch stehen haben. Zudem wird ein neues Stück vom Direktor angenommen, das ein Textilwarenverkäufer mit Hang zum Theater geschrieben hat. Das Stück wird zum Entsetzen des Autors nach den Bedürfnissen des Ortes und der Truppe zurechtgestutzt. Als die Texte zum "Dekamerone" beisammen sind, verlangt der Drucker Kostenvorschuß. Das Geld kann nur durch eine Sammelaktion im Städtchen und durch Jubiläums-Sonderveranstaltungen zusammengebracht werden. Als aber der Gagetag angebrochen ist, ist der Direktor samt der Kasse verschwunden. Das Buch ist mit vielen Anspielungen auf zeitgenössische Theaterzustände und -vorgänge gewürzt, die heute nur noch dem Fachmann verständlich sind. Als vorauseilende Parodie heutiger Theaterzustände kann das Buch allerdings streckenweise auch gelesen werden. Das Dekamerone der Verkannten ist eine satirische Schrift Julius Stindes, deren Erstausgabe ohne Nennung des Verfassers 1881 mit Porträts und Illustrationen von G. Koch im Berliner Verlag Freund & Jeckel mit einem Umfang von VIII und 163 Seiten erschienen ist. Eine Neuausgabe in gleicher Ausstattung und gleichem Umfang kam 1884 heraus (Wikipedia).

        Autograph letter signed in full to the music critic Max Schütz

      On a postal card. Postmarked Prague, January 23, 1881. In German (with transcription and translation). &#11;&#11;Dvorák 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. &#11;&#11;"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!" Uniformly browned. In very good condition overall. . "With Smetana, Fibich and Janácek [Dvorák] 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&#146;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&#11;&#11;Op. 54 &#11;"Although Dvorák 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 études... The eight Waltzes b101 (1879&#150;1880)... are reminiscent of Chopin but are considerably more natural-sounding and direct." ibid &#11;&#11;Op. 55&#11;"The song cycle, Gipsy Melodies, was written for and dedicated to an admirer of the composer&#39;s songs, Gustav Walter, tenor singer of the Vienna Court Opera. As a compliment to Walter, Dvorák set the German translations especially prepared for him by the poet himself, instead of using Adolf Heyduk&#39;s Czech verses... The songs display far more assurance than any Dvorák has written previously....Dvorák&#39;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 Dvorák." Clapham, pp. 232-233&#11;&#11;Op. 57&#11;The only sonata of Dvorák&#39;s to survive, the sonata for violin and piano, op. 57, "marks Dvorák&#39;s first success in writing satisfactorily for the piano in a chamber music work... [It] represents Dvorák at his most intimate..." ibid, p. 194 &#11;&#11;Dvorák&#39;s correspondent Max Schütz was a music critic for the German-language daily Pester Lloyd, published in Budapest.

        Prout&#39;s Microcosm , The Artist&#39;s Sketch-Book of Figures, Shipping and Other Picturesque Objects

      London: James Rimell and Son, 1881. Folio, with a suite of 24 tinted lithographs, some foxing; a very good copy bound in original dark blue cloth, small worm hole to front board, gilt. An attractive copy of this increasingly rare book of illustrations by Samuel Prout, an important and influential English artist, the uncle of John Skinner Prout. His early works included romantic landscapes of Devon and marine scenery. His landscape depictions were of ovbious influence to his nephew, Australian water colourist Skinner Prout. This work of Samuel Prout exemplifies his concern with technical aspects of artistry and this is known to be one of his more influential works. This "New edition" of one of Prout&#39;s popular books for learners containing an introduction by the early lithographer entitled "On the Importance of Figures" which technically describes the devices used in drawing figures within a setting. A series of 24 plates follow, which engage in an exploration of the human figure in the every day scene. Many compositions depicting groups of people in town scenes engaged in commonplace activities. The prints demonstrate Prout&#39;s keen eye for architecture and it was here, in his illustrations of continental scenery, that it is said Prout found his niche. First published in 1841, both editions of this work are now of some scarcity.

        Zwangsmässige Lichtempfindungen durch Schall und verwandte Erscheinungen auf dem Gebiete der anderen Sinnesempfindungen

      Leipzig, Fues's Verlag (R. Reisland), 1881.. 14,5 x 22,5cm, mod. Halbleinwandband, Rückenschild mit goldgeprägtem Titel, erste und letzte Seiten etwas stockfleckig; VII, 95, (1 S.), 2 mehrfach gefaltete Tabellen. sowohl Bleuler (spätere Karriere als Psychiater am Burghölzli in Zürich) und Lehmann (später Professor für Hygiene in Würzburg) waren zum Zeitpunkt dieser Veröffentlichung noch im Studium ("cand. med.")! Erste Untersuchung zum Problem der von ihnen so genannten "Secundärempfindungen", heute unter dem Begriff der "Synaesthesie" zusammengefaßt. Bleuler selbst und viele aus seiner Herkunftsfamilie gehörten zu den Menschen, die bei bestimmten Vokalen oder Worten Farben sahen. Sie befragten insgesamt 77 Personen und analysierten deren unterschiedliche "Doppelwahrnehmungen", schufen den Begriff "Photismen" und charakterisierten "Schallphotismen", "Lichtphotismen", "Geschmacksphotismen", "Geruchsphotismen", "Farb- und Formvorstellung für Schmerz, Wärme und Tastempfinden" sowie "Farbenvorstellung für Formen". Sie erkannten, dass die Anlage für dieses Phänomen erblich ist, dass diese Phänomene unveränderlich sind und durch psychische Vorgänge kaum mehr beeinflußt werden als "normale" Empfindungen, dass diese Fähigkeit für sich allein kein Hinweis auf eine psychische Störung ist und schufen mit diesem Erstlingswerk eine Basis für weitere Forschungen
