        Catalog Mathematischer Modelle für den Höheren Mathematischen Unterricht [Catalogue of Mathematical Models for Higher Mathematical Education]

      L. Brill, Darmstadt 1881 - 260x165mm; pp. 24. EXCEPTIONALLY SCARCE CATALOGUE: BRILL'S FIRST, BEGINNING THE GREAT AGE OF MATHEMATICAL MODELLING. Ludwig Brill took over the family publishing firm in 1880, and began issuing mathematical models almost immediately. This catalogue was issued in 1881 to account for the first eight series of models, made in collaboration with a number of mathematicians, notably Ludwig's brother Alexander Wilhelm von Brill and Felix Klein. The enterprise was a success, and eventually the firm was taken over by Martin Schilling of Leipzig, which issued a catalogue of some 400 models in 1911. The present catalogue is exceptionally scarce. We can locate no copies in collections worldwide, and can only speculate that at this early stage Brill did not print very many copies. Aside from the extensive information provided about each set of models, the most notable feature of the catalogue is the beautiful frontispiece, showing 12 of the models against a black background. Owing to their unexpected and elegant forms, these models and others like them inspired artists working in a range of media and styles, from the photographer Man Ray to the Constructivist sculptor Naum Gabo and the British modernists Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. Condition: good to very good, wraps slightly spotted and worn at the edges (see photo); internally very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        To Caubul with the Cavalry Brigade.

      London: W.H. Allen & Co.,, 1881. A Narrative of Personal Experiences with the Force under General Sir F.S. Roberts, G.C.B. with Map and Illustrations from Sketches by the Author. Octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to spine, quotation from Henry IV to the front board within double-ruled panel in black with foliate scrolled decoration, repeated in blind on the rear board, pale yellow surface-paper endpapers. Lithographic frontispiece and five other similar plates, folding lithographic map at the rear. A little rubbed, some bubbling on the boards, spine a touch sunned, and crumpled and chipped head and tail, binding cracked between gatherings 8 and 9, but the stitching remains entirely sound, light browning, and scatter of foxing to the text-block, overall very good. Second edition, same year as the first. Uncommon account of the Second Anglo-Afghan War. Mitford "served with the [14th Regt. Bengal Cavalry (Lancers)] throughout the period it was employed in the war, taking part in the advance on and occupation of Kabul, the action of Charasiab, and the operations around Kabul and the Defence of Sherpur in Dec., 1879, and Â… was mentioned in despatches... [he] commanded the Regiment in the first campaign, and for his services received the Brevet of Lt.-Colonel" (Shadbolt The Afghan Campaigns). Mitford provides excellent detail on the campaign, and writes extremely persuasively, for example on the death of Cavagnari; "They received [him] with a salute of nineteen guns, and after a considerable time spent in compliments, and the inevitable feast Â… the British envoy and his followers were handed over to their new escort, and - to death. When I said good-bye to Cavagnari he was evidently in very low spirits, and I feel sure that nothing but the indomitable courage and determination which was so striking a feature in his character enabled him to conquer the foreboding of evil which he acknowledged he felt, in spite of all efforts to shake it off" (author's introduction). Front endpapers with the bookplate and ownership inscription, dated in 1893, of Sir Lewis Michell, Cape Town banker, "close confidant" of Cecil Rhodes, on his death his executor, and in 1910 his first biographer.

        The formation of vegetable mould, through the action of worms, with observations on their habits

      John Murray, London 1881 - Second Issue of Darwin's final book. 8vo: vii,[1],326,[2]pp, with 15 woodcuts. Complete with half-title and final (unnumbered) leaf with publisher's advertisements listing other works by Darwin on recto and imprimatur on verso. Original publisher's green pebbled cloth, covers paneled in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, chocolate-brown end papers. Attractive armorial bookplate of D. Meinertzhagen (probably Daniel Meinertzhagen VI, head of the Frederick Huth & Co. merchant-banking dynasty and father of Richard Meinertzhagen, soldier, intelligence officer, and natural historian). A superb copy, binding square and tight; contents clean, bright, unmarked. Freeman 1358. First Edition, Second Issue (printed the same year and, aside from "second thousand" on title page, identical to first issue, down to the same misprint on the page of advertisements, tenth title, "The power and movements in plants . . ."). After decades devoted to mainly zoological, botanical and evolutionary subjects, Darwin here reverts to his earlier geological interests, describing the services performed by earthworms in eating leaves and grinding earth for the fertilization and aeration of soil. From the weight of worm-castings, he calculated that 18 tons of soil per acre are brought to the surface by worms each year. In fact, the book grew out of a paper on vegetable mould that Darwin read to the Geological Society in November 1837, about a year after returning from his voyage round the world in the Beagle. According to Freeman, "The book was remarkably successful," selling 6,000 copies within a year, more even than had The Origin of Species. And Gordon Chancellor calls Earthworms "perhaps the most charming of all Darwin's books." N.B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        Autograph letter signed in full to the music critic Max Schütz

      - On a postal card. Postmarked Prague, January 23, 1881. In German (with 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 pPano, 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 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 onlineOp. 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. 232-33Op. 57The 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.

        Faust Act III. Etching by Paul Renouard from the series entitled Le Nouvel Opéra

      [Paris], 1881. Béraldi: Les Graveurs du XIXe Siècle (Paris: 1885-92), XI-188. Faust, an opera in five acts to a libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré after Carré';s Faust et Marguerite and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe';s Faust, Part I (in the French translation by Gérard de Nerval), was first performed in Paris at the Théâtre Lyrique on March 15, 1859. "Faust became particularly important to the French musical establishment at the end of the century. A work by a winner of the Prix de Rome that could claim to be thoroughly modern and personal in style at its première, and go on to international stages, was a significant enhancement to the musical prestige of a French operatic culture previously dominated by Meyerbeer and the none-too-easily exportable genre of opéra comique. Its national value was enhanced because, after some initial assessments as ?Wagnerian';, Gounod';s compositional voice in Faust was heard as important in the definition of a ?French'; musical aesthetic." Steven Huebner in Grove Music Online. Renouard (1845-1924) was a noted painter and engraver whose works are held at the Louvre, the Opéra Museum, etc.. 279 x 198 mm. Signed by the artist in pencil at lower left. A very good impression on laid paper. Remnants of hinges to upper corners of verso.

Three bound volumes of this "college miscellany" issued by the students of Trinity College in Dublin, where Oscar Wilde matriculated. He contributed a number of works to the periodical, including 'The Rose of Love.' The magazine was founded by Robert Yelverton Tyrrell (1844-1914), a classicist and one of Wilde's mentors at Trinity. The name Kottabos is derived from a Greek drinking game in which players attempted to hit a target by flicking the dregs of their wine at it. The magazine was more soberly described by its editor as 'a miscellany of Greek and Latin verse, and of English pieces'. Included here is also the 1874 collection, which includes work by Oscar's brother, William.Good in original bindings, wrappers not present, signature or ownership stamps on endpapers, Volume three has some wear to spine.

        JAPANESE EPISODES.

      Boston 1881, Osgood. Brown decorated cloth, 247p., author's. signed & dated presentation copy, to his cousin on fron fly. leaf. V E R Y R A R E. AN EARLY PRIMARY RESOURCE ON SOCIAL & PHYSICAL FEATURES In the preface of this work, the author stats that the "... purpose of this little volume is t represent a few social and physical features of Japan which have seldom been minutely examined by visitors to that agreeable country...But of the inner life of the Japanese, of their domestic relations, their pleasures or the gentler romance of their nature, I have found no accurate record...nor has the singular loveliness of the scenery, the refining charm of which deeply influlences the character fo teh people, been closely or sympathetically observed..." * A fine introduction to the actual nature of this book. In fact, by the chapter headings: Little Fountain of Sakano- shita; To Fujiyama and back; A Japanese statesman at home; A day in the Japanese theater would not really tell use of the essence found in this lovely essay. * The author, was a Bostonian and a journalist. House [1836- 1901) was one of several Westerners, who tried to interpret Meiji Japan. He was also a prominet American Civil War reporter, and later in Japan, was the editor in the 1870s of the Tokio Times. He had a troubled friendship with Mark Twain in the 1880s, and lived out his final years in Tokyo. He was a crusaider for and had great influence on the United States government, in the return of the American portion of the 1864 Shimonoseki indemnity. House exerted undeniable influence in prompting Congress's decision to send back the money, the question of how much effect he had in "correcting" the historical record of the event remains problematic. * He also wrote The Japanese Expedition to Formosa in 1875; THE JAPANESE, OR SHIMONOSEKI INDEMNITY. APPENDIX, ca. 1875; THE SHIMONOSEKI AFFAIR: A CHAPTER OF JAPANESE HISTORY, 1875; and THE TRANSFER OF THE TEMPLES OF ISE an article in Harper's 1900.

        Caricature Costumi del Teatro Regio di Torino (1881)

      29 fogli (cm 27x36) applicati su cartoncino blu di dimensioni maggiori. Conservati in legatura coeva in mezza pelle e percallina - Si tratta di un volume contenente 29 disegni acquerellati e firmati di Augusto SALETTA, avvocato e disegnatore satirico che collaborò, insieme ad Attilio Mussino e Luigi Sapelli alla redazione della nota rivista Il Fischietto. Il primo f. contiene una dedica a lapis del Saletta al ''Signor Dottore G. Spantigati'' datata aprile 1881. Giovanni Spatignati fu direttore sanitario dell'ospedale Mauriziano di Torino e a lui si deve, insieme all'ing. Ambrogio Perincioli, tra il 1881 e il 1885, la progettazione dell'attuale edificio ospedaliero a padiglioni: la struttura fu la sintesi perfetta delle teorie igieniste dell'epoca. Il secondo foglio costituisce un indice parziale degli acquerelli. Le tavole raffigurano i costumi relativi a tre opere rappresentate a Torino in quegli anni. Le tav. 3-12 sono relative ai ''Pappataci'', ovvero l'''Italiana in Algeri'' di Rossini rappresentata nella primavera del 1880 al Teatro Scribe, andato distrutto durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Dalla tav. 13 alla 24 sono invece raffigurati i costumi per l'''Amleto'' di Ambroise Thomas, rappresentato per la prima volta al Teatro Regio di Torino nel 1881. Dalla tav. 25 alla fine ''Lucrezia Borgia'' rappresentata sempre nel 1881 al Teatro Regio di Torino. Ottimo esemplare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The only Chester A. Arthur Franked Envelope in Existence

      [Washington, D.C.], 1881. 5" x 3.25". "Envelope Franked ""C. A. A."" as President in the upper left, 5"" x 3.25"". Addressed by Arthur to ""The Honorable / Edwards Pierrepont / &c &c."" Slight tear at back flap when opened. No postal markings indicating it was most probably hand delivered. Pierrepont has docketed the envelope along the left edge, as was his custom, ""Prest. Arthur / 1881"" in blue crayon pencil -""Prest Arthur"" is barely visible. Stained in blank lower left corner. Fine condition.In 1884, the New York Republican delegation, of which his friend and fellow New Yorker, Grant's former Attorney General Edwards Pierrepont, was a member, had met at Cooper Union and recommended Arthur be renominated for President. At the Republican National Convention held in Chicago, June 3-6, 1884, on the first ballot, President Arthur was second to his former Secretary of State James G. Blaine, 334 1/2 to 278 votes, with 411 needed to be nominated. Blaine was nominated on the fourth ballot, defeating Arthur 541-207.In 1873, ""An act to abolish the franking privilege"" was passed by Congress and signed by President U.S . Grant, the last sitting U.S. President to have the franking privilege. Because Chester A. Arthur was never a Member of Congress, and was Vice President from March-September 1881, he never had the franking privilege. The only reason President Chester A. Arthur signed ""C.A.A."" in the upper right of this envelope in the franking position, must have been as a frank. This is the only franked envelope of Chester A. Arthur extant. No other example as President or in any capacity has ever been offered at auction or exists in the renowned collections of Louis Grunin, Creighton C. Hart, Morton Dean Joyce or Edward Stern. David G. Phillips' American Stampless Cover Catalog, Volume 2 (1987), p. 215, in a listing headed ""Presidents of the United States / Franks from Other Capacities,"" notes ""None."" "

        Poems

      David Bogue, London 1881 - First edition of Oscar Wilde's first book of poems, one of 250 copies. By his mid-twenties, Wilde had enjoyed considerable success as a poet: "Ravenna" won Oxford's Newdigate Prize in 1878, and dozens of Wilde's poems had appeared in Irish, English and American periodicals. This first edition of his collected poems, handsomely printed on handmade paper, was published at Wilde's own expense. Highlights include "Requiescat" (an elegy for his sister Isola, who died when they were children), "The Grave of Keats," and "Her Voice": "Sweet, there is nothing left to say / But this, that love is never lost, / Keen winter stabs the breasts of May / Whose crimson roses burst his frost, / Ships tempest-tossed / Will find a harbour in some bay, / And so we may." Wilde was disappointed in the reception of his first book, and turned from poetry to the more profitable genres of fiction and drama, but he always considered himself a poet before all, and declared that he would be remembered as "the infamous St Oscar of Oxford, Poet and Martyr" (Letters, 720). First printing, with first issue title page, misprint "may" for "maid' on page 136, and a panel of publisher's first binding, featuring a gilt plum blossom pattern designed by Wilde, affixed to rear flyleaf. A fine copy of a major literary debut, splendidly bound by Root & Son. Octavo, early twentieth-century full red crushed morocco gilt, boards gilt-ruled with gilt cornerpieces and floral medallions inlaid with green morocco, raised bands, spine compartments lettered and decorated in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt dentelles, top edge gilt, other edges uncut, red silk ribbon marker. Gilt-embossed rectangular panel of publisher's first binding, measuring 2 by 2.5 inches, affixed to blank flyleaf. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Schweizerisches Idiotikon. Wörterbuch der schweizerdeutschen Sprache. 15 Bde. (I-XVI; ) u. 1 Bd.: Registerbd. (für die Bde.: I - XI) u. 1 Bd.: Quellen -und Abkürzungsverzeichnis. (17 Bde., compl.).

      Frauenfeld, Huber, -2013 1881 - 4°, j e ca. 1000 S., HLdr.(Lederimitat) mit Goldprägung., Etwas berieben, sonst tadell. - Das «Schweizerisches Idiotikon» das grösste Regionalwörterbuch des Deutschen, ist aus einem Idiotikon schweizerdeutscher Wörter längst zu einem umfassenden Wörterbuch des Schweizerdeutschen geworden, ja in gewissem Grad zu einem Reallexikon oder Thesaurus. Es erschliesst sowohl den Wortschatz der zum Teil sehr altertümlichen Dialekte der deutschen Schweiz (inkl. Walsermundarten Oberitaliens) als auch die schriftliche Überlieferung dieses Gebiets seit dem 12. Jahrhundert, besonders gründlich die des 15. und 16. Jahrhundert; dabei sind namentlich Landwirtschaft, Jagd, Fischerei und Gewerbe, Sachkultur und Volksleben, Recht und Dichtung berücksichtigt, auch Volkslieder, Kinderreime, Bauernregeln usw., sodann die Sondersprachen der Schüler, Studenten, Soldaten und Fahrenden.Die einzelnen Wörter sind zufolge der lautlichen Vielfalt gemäss dem Schmellerschen System in erster Linie nach der Herkunft angeordnet und semantisch aufeinander bezogen; dadurch werden nicht nur die Bedeutungsentwicklung jedes Wortes, sondern auch dessen Stellenwert und Leistung innerhalb der Wortsippe sichtbar. Vielfache Verweisungen auf Synonyme und begriffsnahe Wörter erschliessen Wortfelder der Gegenwart oder früherer Zeit. Wo möglich (durchwegs für die Sprache vor 1800) sind die Wörter im Satzzusammenhang geboten; daher ist auch Phraseologie und Idiomatik berücksichtigt. Den Appellativen sind in reichem Masse entsprechende lebende und urkundliche Namen (Personen- und Lokalnamen) angeschlossen.Da der Grundstock des Mundartmaterials in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts dank der Mitarbeit von gegen 400 Korrespondenten zusammengekommen ist, kann das Werk sonst kaum beschriebene und heute weitgehend verschwundene Bereiche der sprachlichen, geistigen und materiellen Kultur dieser Zeit besonders gut dokumentieren. Es ist Arbeitsinstrument für verschiedenste Wissensgebiete wie Sprach-, Geschichts- und Rechtswissenschaft, Volks- und Namenkunde. Geographisch umfasst das Bearbeitungsgebiet die deutsche Schweiz einschliesslich der Walserorte in Norditalien. Das Gesamtwerk ( Bd. 16 erscheint 2010, Bd. 17 erst 2020) wird 17 Bände umfassen. Auf den Abschluss hin sind Arbeiten an einem alphabetischen und einem grammatischen Gesamtregister in Gang.Versandkostenfrei für Europa. (Beiliegend: Quellen- u.

HIGHLY INTERESTING 19TH CENTURY MANUSCRIPT LEDGER FROM KYLE, TEXAS (HAYS COUNTY). This historically important early volume dates from 1881-1885 and was kept by notary public Edwin Atwood Vaughan (aka E. A. Vaughan) of Kyle, Texas.

Vaughan's notary activities including mortgages, warranter deeds, executor's deeds, trust deeds, transfers, powers of attorney, bills of sale, bonds, quit claims, and liens. Majority of Vaughan's clients were personally known to him and resided in Kyle, however various other towns in Hays County and elsewhere in Texas can also be found here such as Austin, San Marcos, Lockhart, Texarkana, Palestine, Gonzales, Wimberley, Taylor, etc. Hundreds of names appear throughout, making ledger a treasure trove of local genealogy.
