        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

        To Mount Browne and Back , or Moses and Me

      Adelaide: Advertiser Print, 1881. Octavo, [iv], 32, [iv] pp., eight lithographed plates after Herbert Woodhouse or Arthur Esam; original pink pictorial wrappers, slight wear to head of spine, but a very good copy. Moses and me. This delightful and rare illustrated work is an account of the author&#39;s trip from Adelaide to Mount Browne. The Introduction remarks that &#39;interest has been evoked of late by the discovery of alluvial gold in a district lying near the South Australian border, but which is to two-thirds of the community an utterly unknown land&#39;. Johnson, an Adelaide journalist, recounts with much humour his cross-country journey on his horse Mr Moses and provides a detailed and human view of country life en route and conditions on an Australian goldfield. Mount Browne was named and first described by the explorer Charles Sturt who travelled in the region in 1845. Johnson crossed Sturt&#39;s route at Depot Glen &#39;close to where gold was first found in the Grey Ranges… at the Glen there may yet be seen the fragments that remain of the boat the explorer carried with him, wherein to cross the mythical inland sea of Central Australia…&#39; (p. 16). The eight full-page engravings together with the cover illustration are the work of two of the leading illustrators of the period, Herbert Woodhouse and Arthur Esam. Herbert Woodhouse was a member of the most famous family of sporting artists in nineteenth-century Australia. He moved to South Australia in 1880 and regularly exhibited in exhibitions both overseas and interstate. An ephemeral and rare goldfields work: this copy is in excellent original condition, complete with the many engraved advertisements.

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.

Mother Goose had a title-page drawing of a baby lying in a basket of roses. A Day in a Child&#39;s Life was even more evocative, with its rose wreath half-title page; a blonde girl lying in bed, so reminiscent of a child Rose on her sick bed; and young girls in white frocks dancing over a hillside to &#39;A Romp&#39; - so like his Winnington Hall frolics" (Engen p.81).Schuster & Engen 66.

        Large archive of original art, sketches, studies and notebooks by Max Weber and Helaine Blum

      n.p., n.d. - Large archive of original art, sketches, studies and notebooks by Max Weber and Helaine Blum. The collection documents the working student- teacher relationship between the two artists - with many of the notebooks having been used in Weber's lessons to Blum. The worksby Weber, both sketches and finished, show his move from the abstraction prevalent in his early work to his later representational style. Blum's work included here encompasses her lesson notebooks as well as sketches and studies used in preparation for her sculptural work. In addition, the collection includes 2 notebooks ascribed by Helaine Blum to George Grosz, and a large oil portrait by Blum's daughter Maryann, as well as two books on art given by Weber to Blum; one with an intimate inscription, the other with his notes and extra-illustrated with original sketches. Max Weber (1881-1961) immigrated to the United States with his family at the age of 10. He travelled extensively before returning to New York to become integral to the Cubist movement in America. Helaine Blum (c. 1910-2010), was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to a wealthy family. She travelled extensively throughout Europe before finally settling in New York to focus on painting and sculpture, under the tutelage of Max Weber and William Zorach. Her relationship with Weber became particularly close - the two corresponded for decades on matters personal and professional, including their thoughts on art, creativity, travel, and social and religious issues (primarily Judaism). Blum enjoyed tremendous success as a sculptor, producing bronze busts of the great luminaries of her day, including Albert Einstein, Linus Pauling, Max Weber, and David Ben-Gurion. A brief inventory of the collection follows. Max Weber: 16 sketchbooks with studies, sketches and teaching notes; approximately 131 loose works, including still lifes, nudes and figure studies, and abstracts, executed in a variety of media (graphite, charcoal, watercolor); 13 portraits done in a variety of media, includingone portrait of Helaine Blum; 5 framed pieces, including abstracts and still lifes. Helaine Blum: 5 sketchbooks, some of which were used during lessons with Max Weber; approximately 91 loose works, including street scenes, still lifes, figure studies, landscapes and sketches used in preparation for her bust of David Ben Gurion, executed in a variety of media(oil on board, graphite, charcoal, watercolor); 3 framed pieces. George Grosz: 2 sketchbooks, one with approximately 51 sketches, the other with 38 pages of drawings and sketches Maryann Blum: large oil portrait of George C. Marshall Weber, Max. Essays on Art. [New York] : [Printed by William Edwin Rudge], 1916. First Edition. Original illustrated wraps; pp. 77. Inscribed by the artist, "To Helaine with love eternal from Max." Yapp edges lightly wrinkled and chipped, otherwise fine. Einstein, Carl. Negerplastik. Munchen: Kurt Wolff Verlag, 1920. First Edition. Illustrated paper over boards, cloth backstrip, lettered in black; pp. xxvii (text), [3], 108 b/w plates. Boards a bit scuffed and scratched. With Max Weber's ownership signature on the FFEP and his handwritten notes and sketches in the margins. Also includes a laid-in sketch by Weber with his notes. A fascinating look at a sculptor's engagement with his medium, its variety and history, Weber comments on 35 of the sculptures shown here -- "how elemental!!!" he says of one, "more real and living expression than the style of Brancusi or even Modigliani" he remarks of another. He also sometimes echoes the images with a sketch of his own, or subjects them to careful scrutiny, as indicated by measurements or lines breaking the piece up into smaller parts. Most of his notes are in the wide margins, with a few penciled direct on the image . Very good, in general [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
