Doubleday, Abner
Mendham, Morris County NJ: 1882. Mendham, Morris County NJ:, 1882. Single leaf, folded to [4] pp. First two pages with Doubleday's letter and signature in ink manuscript. Page [3] is blank. Docketed on page [4], "Major General Abner Doubleday U.S. Army." Very Good, with old folds. A career military officer, Doubleday was a West Point graduate who fought in the Mexican War and, during the Civil War, at Second Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg. He wrote at length on the Battle of Gettysburg. The Encyclopedia Britannica says he was "once thought to be the inventor of baseball." Doubleday's correspondent, George Bliss of Providence, led the First Regiment Rhode Island Cavalry at the Battle of Middleburg, "one of the first battles of the Gettysburg Campaign" [online American Battlefield Trust]. Reverend Frederic Denison, Chaplain of the First Regiment Rhode Island Cavalry, had written SABRES AND SPURS: THE FIRST REGIMENT RHODE ISLAND CAVALRY IN THE CIVIL WAR. The book in some respects differed from Doubleday's account. Doubleday writes: "In reference to the criticism by Chaplain Denison you had the kindness to send me, I would like to correct the Roster of the 2d R.I. Infantry. Did Colonel Horatio Rogers command it at Gettysburg? I will substitute your name as leading the advance on the retreat from Middleburg instead of that of Captain Bixbie. The account I gave if I remember rightly was taken in a great measure from reports in The Rebellion Record. I will send you the second edition when it comes out.

Qu'est-ce qu'une nation ?: conférence faite en Sorbonne, le 11 mars 1882 / par Ernest Renan Paris, Calmann Lévy, 1882, 30 pages, format in-8, reliure demi-toile de l'époque, très rare édition originale (mention fictive de deuxième édition) de ce texte mythique. Excellent état. Description en photos ici: https://photos.app.goo.gl/WCaBECwEpFMxqydW8 La conférence d'Ernest Renan, Qu'est-ce qu'une nation est souvent évoquée comme représentative de la conception française de la question nationale. On peut la résumer, comme Renan lui-même, à l'idée que : « L'homme n'est esclave ni de sa race, ni de sa langue, ni de sa religion, ni du cours des fleuves, ni de la direction des chaînes de montagnes. Une grande agrégation d'hommes, saine d'esprit et chaude de coeur, crée une conscience morale qui s'appelle une nation. Tant que cette conscience morale prouve sa force par les sacrifices qu'exige l'abdication de l'individu au profit d'une communauté, elle est légitime, elle a le droit d'exister. Si des doutes s'élèvent sur ses frontières, consultez les populations disputées. Elles ont bien le droit d'avoir un avis dans la question. » Après avoir examiné successivement ces différentes options, il synthétisera encore mieux cette conception à la célèbre formule qui fait de la nation « un plébiscite de tous les jours ».

Prima edizione. Guabello, n. 8. De Medici n. 6. Esemplare eccezionale, corredato da un invio autografo di D'Annunzio sull'occhietto: "Agli zii Giovanni e Amalia Del Greco affettuosamente. Gabriele". Amalia Del Greco, nata Cantini, era sorella di Italia Cantini moglie di Tito Zucconi, il professore del Cicognini della cui figlia, Giselda, il poeta si era innamorato nel 1881, quando era stato invitato dallo stesso professore nella sua villa per conoscere la famiglia: l'appellativo "zii" dato ai Del Greco è dunque un auspicio che D'Annunzio fa a se stesso, come pretendente alla nipote.

Gounod, Charles, Komponist (1818-1893).
20, Place Malesherbes [Paris], 11. XII. 1882. 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Mit eh. adr. Kuvert. An die Mezzosopranistin und Gesangspädagogin Mathilde Marchesi mit der Bitte einen Probentermin mit ihren Schülerinnen Emma Nevada und Blanche Arral zu verschieben: "Je viens vous prier de remettre à l'ante [!] Jeudi (21 Xbre) la visite de vos deux chères filles (Blanche et Nevada) vers la même heure, 4 h - j'ai, jeudi prochain, une grande séance à laquelle je ne puis manquer; c'est l'execution du Prix de la Ville au Châtelet [.]". - Nach Stationen als Pädagogin an den Konservatorien in Wien und Köln ließ sich Mathilde Marchesi 1881 in Paris nieder um ihre eigene Gesangsschule zu eröffnen. Ihre mit Abstand berühmteste Schülerin war die australische Sopranistin Nellie Melba (1861-1931). Emma Nevada (1859-1940), die den Komponisten Ambroise Thomas heiraten sollte, und Blanche Arral (1864-1945) begannen nach ihrer Ausbildung bei Mathilde Marchesi ebenfalls erfolreiche Karrieren. - Charles Gounod, der selbst ein begabter Amateursänger und langjähriger Chorleiter in Paris und London war, befreundete sich in seinem letzten Lebensjahrzehnt mit Mathilde Marchesi und ihrem Mann, dem Bariton und Pädagogen Salvatore. Wie aus dem Brief hervorgeht, arbeitete er auch mit den Gesangsschülerinnen der Marchesi. Als Pädagogin schätzte Mathilde Marchesi Gounods Vokalmusik, da diese keine Überforderungen der menschlichen Stimme forciere. In ihren Memoiren schreibt sie zum Tod des Freundes: "On the 15th of October, 1893, the musical world sustained an irreparable loss in the death of Charles Gounod, … [Click Below for Full Description]

[California]. [Sericulture]
San Francisco: Dry Goods Reporter, 1882. Very good plus.. [32]pp. Original brown wrappers, printed in gold, stitched as issued. Some rubbing and minor wear to wrappers. Light tanning internally. A scarce report on the first meeting of the California Silk Culture Association, founded in 1880 by women in San Francisco "to promote silk culture in the State of California by all practical means conducive thereto." This publication includes lists of officers and members, the constitution and bylaws of the association, two reports on the activities and finances of the association, and several articles published in the preceding year regarding the advancement of sericulture. The report of the secretary, Mrs. Theodore H. Hittell, reads in brief part: "Hundreds are now willing and determined to work for us and foster home silk culture, which will prove a rich blessing to the persevering and industrious middle class. Because a former silk culture enterprise had failed, many were prejudiced against us and inclined to think some defect in our climate was the cause, whereas the real reason was a lack of caution in the beginning. Laborers were scarce -- Chinamen should not have been trusted with branch of this industry.... We hope to induce every farmer who has land suitable for the purpose, to plant a few trees and raise worms, so that the capability of all sections of the State may be ascertained.... The day is not far distant when in most parts of the State, as knowledge and experience increase, the production and cultivation of silk will furnish employments to a large class o … [Click Below for Full Description]

GUERIN Victor (Parigi, 1821 - 1890).
Plon et C.ie. 1882 - 1884., Paris. 2 Voll. In-folio (cm 39 x 28), legatura editoriale in mezza pelle rossa con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso, piatto decorati in oro avorio nero e azzurro, tagli dorati a specchio; pp.(6)468 e (4)512. Prima edizione di questa magnifica opera sulla Terra Santa, illustrata da 44 incisioni in acciaio fuori testo protette da velina, e 593 incisioni xilografiche nel testo. Piccole leggere abrasioni ai margini delle legature; per il resto ottimo fresco esemplare. Le tavole in acciaio sono impresse da Ch. Chardon. Victor Guérin è stato un archeologo e geografo francese; diplomatosi alla École normale supérieure di Parigi nel 1840 per circa dieci anni lavorò come professore di retorica in diversi collegi e licei, tra i quali il liceo di Algeri (1850). In questo periodo ebbe dunque occasione di viaggiare per l'Algeria per motivi di studio e di entrare in contatto con Arabi, Mauri e Berberi. Nei suoi rapporti con loro coltivò un reciproco rispetto, pur senza rinunciare alle proprie convinzioni cattoliche. Fu professore aggregato in lettere nel 1850 e nel 1852 fu distaccato all'École française d’archéologie d’Athènes. Al suo ritorno in Francia, redasse la sua tesi sull'isola di Rodi. Dopo questa prima missione in Grecia, viaggiò spesso in Oriente, dopo un breve passaggio nelle università di Lione e di Grenoble come professore di letteratura straniera. Nel 1878 entrò nell'institut catholique de Paris. [Attributes: First Edition]

Sewn in original pink printed wraps. 24 pages, 6 line-drawn illustrations to the text. 2) "Magic Scale", triangular 510 x 560 x 240 mm, die stamped from brown stiff card-stock, printed with various scales, and two cut-out portions, scales for "Front Arm Shape" and "Front Neck". 3) "Magic Scale Measure Book", landscape duodecimo, tan textured cloth-backed marbled card wraps, 90 pages of printed forms to record individual measurements, 8 of them completed in pencil in this copy. The wraps on the pamphlet a little rubbed and chipping at the margins, contents lightly browned, the measure book rubbed on the wraps, but overall very good. Eleventh edition, first published c.1879. The pamphlet itself is quite uncommon, just five locations - for various editions - listed on OCLC; Philadelphia University, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, Universities of Delaware and Connecticut, and Library of Michigan, but none of these listings note the presence of the scale or the notebook for measurements. A proprietary pattern-cutting guide that ran to at least 25 editions, the unique selling proposition being the "Magic Scale" - "the square and the compass combined" - using which "a lady can cut from any fashion plate, making a perfect fit without alterations".

Shakespeare, William] Shakspere
Ráth Mór, Budapest, 1882. Second edition (first in 1867). In later cloth. [4], 162, [2] p. Although Hamlet was the first Shakespeare play to be translated into Hungarian already in the late 18th century, the first poetic translation, directly from English by János Arany, was completed and published only in 1867, as the eighth volume of Shakspeare szinm?vei (Shakespeare's Plays; published between 1867 and 1878). The present volume is the second edition of Arany's translation and its first appearance outside the series. The tragedy was first translated into Hungarian by Ferenc Kazinczy (Kassa, 1790), after Ludwig Schröder's German translation. The first prosaic translation directly from English was made by Péter Vajda in 1839, whose text was popular in the theatres however it has never appeared in print. Scarce. WorldCat locates only 2 copies worldwide. Spine with small damage at head. Old ownership inscriptions on title page, and front flyleaf. Underlines in pencil on pp. 69-70. Pages yellowed due to aging.

Volume 1a; 1b, 2 -4 Splendidly illustrated (by Audsley himself) with colour plates produced by the premier French chromolithographic firm of Lemercier, The ornamental arts of Japan is divided into four volumes in 5 portfolios. The first covers drawing, painting, engraving, printing, embroidery and textiles. The second focuses on incrusted-work, metal work, cloisonne enamel, modelling and carving, heraldry. The work is dedicated to one of the other great Victorian collectors of Japanese artefacts, Prince Alfred, the Duke of Edinburgh. Born in the town of Elgin in the Scottish highlands, the Audsley brothers - William James (1833-1907) and George Ashdown (1838-1925) - ran a successful architectural firm in Liverpool from 1860 to 1883 and later opened branches in London and New York. Their projects ranged from private houses to meeting halls and churches and even, in their later years, a skyscraper. Beyond their professional commitments, they were enthusiastic collectors and patrons of the arts, who organised exhibitions, gave lectures and (especially in George's case) published books to promote their interests. George's passions included medieval illumination, interior decoration and the construction of pipe organs, but he is probably best remembered for his landmark publication opening up the world of Japanese design to European eyes.Complete volumes in good condition are very scarce.

Born in the town of Elgin in the Scottish highlands, the Audsley brothers - William James (1833-1907) and George Ashdown (1838-1925) - ran a successful architectural firm in Liverpool from 1860 to 1883 and later opened branches in London and New York. Their projects ranged from private houses to meeting halls and churches and even, in their later years, a skyscraper. Beyond their professional commitments, they were enthusiastic collectors and patrons of the arts, who organised exhibitions, gave lectures and (especially in George's case) published books to promote their interests. George's passions included medieval illumination, interior decoration and the construction of pipe organs, but he is probably best remembered for his landmark publication opening up the world of Japanese design to European eyes.Complete volumes in good condition are very scarce.

John Wisden
1882. Hi, I recently purchased a set of Wisdens and the first 50 of the run were in a suitcase that had not been opened for over 50 years. This lot is an 1882 Original Paperback Wisden. It has tape to the spine. It is in Very Good Condition for the year. The tape is neatly done and holds the book together well, the covers have some marks and age toning , mainly to the bottom of the rear cover. Internally it is very nice and clean and hasn't been opened for a while. No restoration other than the tape applied many years ago. A hard year to find.

MASSACHUSETTS HOMEOPATHIC HOSPITAL
Massachusetts Homeopathic Hospital. Detailed medical ledger dating February 27, 1882, to June 22, 1885, describing 201 cases of which 155 are women, mostly members of Boston's servant class, many suffering from acute complications after a back injury or difficult pregnancy, with treatments ranging from rest to small doses of arsenicum and placebos. The earlies patient covered, a Miss Sara S. Hodson, aged 60, is typical, "Serving woman. Has always had good health. Seven years ago fell upon the ice broke her arm and injured her back. Suffered very much from pain in the lumbar region. After recovery she was subject to spells of diarrhora and vomiting. Vomits mucus, never food. Diarrhora always watery, sometimes like clear coffee." Though most patients eventually discharged as "cured" or "much improved," a couple of deaths are noted, each with a subsequent autopsy report. Of a Miss Emeline Tratt (?), aged 71, "Result of autopsy showed ossification of valves of left heart, ossification of [?] artery. Large calculus in gall bladder. Kidney, spleen, pancreas, in fact all internal organs exceedingly friable. Kidneys very much enlarged and distintegrated." A Miss Heath's autoposy "showed the gall bladder enormously distended filled with hundreds of small stones. There was scirrhus of the lower part of right lobe of liver and metastatic nodules through lungs, kidneys, intestines, spleen, in fact all organs of body." Mentions of hysteria and melancholia seem to be entirely absent, though one Miss Lizzy Butts, age 43, is described as having two years previously been "treated for ovaria … [Click Below for Full Description]

Containing the Old and New Testaments (with both versions of the New Testament); the Apocrypha; a complete Concordance; 100,000 marginal references, etc. Illustrated with color lithographic plates and maps, steel-engraved and wood-engraved plates, and wood-engraved illustrations throughout the text. Bound in at the back are two double-sided color lithographic cardboard sleeves with mounting slots to accommodate 16 family portraits. A rare and beautifully preserved pictorial family bible bound in elaborate gilt-decorated paneled morocco with metal clasps. A bright, fine copy housed in the publisher's very good original cardboard box with a printed paper label. A binder's ticket on the back pastedown further identifies this edition as having been both published and bound by: "Geo. V. Jones & Co., booksellers and bookbinders" in Boston. The binding is signed with a small copyright date in gold ("copyrighted 1881"), and an advertisement printed on the verso of a leaf at the front makes it known that the Bible won the highest prize at an International Exposition in December, 1881: ". the designs and workmanship being of the very best." Laid-in is an eight-page publisher's catalog: "Announcement for 1883," so we think it safe to attribute a date of 1882 to this volume. The Bible is also remarkable for its many fine engraved and lithographic plates printed in multiple colors. All are bright, pristine impressions of high artistic accomplishment, printed on high quality thick paper sheets … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mendham, Morris County NJ:, 1882. Single leaf, folded to [4] pp. First two pages with Doubleday's letter and signature in ink manuscript. Page [3] is blank. Docketed on page [4], "Major General Abner Doubleday U.S. Army." Very Good, with old folds.A career military officer, Doubleday was a West Point graduate who fought in the Mexican War and, during the Civil War, at Second Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg. He wrote at length on the Battle of Gettysburg. The Encyclopedia Britannica says he was "once thought to be the inventor of baseball." Doubleday's correspondent, George Bliss of Providence, led the First Regiment Rhode Island Cavalry at the Battle of Middleburg, "one of the first battles of the Gettysburg Campaign" [online American Battlefield Trust].Reverend Frederic Denison, Chaplain of the First Regiment Rhode Island Cavalry, had written SABRES AND SPURS: THE FIRST REGIMENT RHODE ISLAND CAVALRY IN THE CIVIL WAR. The book in some respects differed from Doubleday's account. Doubleday writes: "In reference to the criticism by Chaplain Denison you had the kindness to send me, I would like to correct the Roster of the 2d R.I. Infantry. Did Colonel Horatio Rogers command it at Gettysburg? I will substitute your name as leading the advance on the retreat from Middleburg instead of that of Captain Bixbie. The account I gave if I remember rightly was taken in a great measure from reports in The Rebellion Record. I will send you the second edition when it comes out.

1882. A small card, approximately 3" x 5", with the author's engraved monogram in red. Paper clip shadow on the left side, as well as a modest paper remnant on the verso where the card was tipped into a scrapbook, just touching the last letter in his signature, else very good. To the author's publisher, using both sides of the card. In full: "Wednesday. My Dear Osgood - All right - shall expect you Friday [word scratched out]. Would have written you sooner, but one of the children has been lying very close to the grave ever since New Years' night, & was not declared out of danger till yesterday evening. Truly Yours, S.L. Clemens." Undated but circa 1882. A little better content than most of Clemens's notes, the tragic theme of his children's mortality played an important role in his life. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Maupassant, Guy de, French naturalist writer (1850-1893).
Nice, no date, 1882. 1 p. on a 4.5 x 3.5 personal stationery card, Letter concerning a „Portuguese translation of Musotte," a three-act play adapted from Maupassant's 1882 novel L'Enfant. In fine condition.Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant is considered the greatest French author of short stories next to Stendhal (1783-1842), Honoré de Balzac (1799-1850), Gustave Flaubert (1821- 1880) and Émile Zola (1840-1902). In L’Enfant a hardened bachelor falls in love with a young girl (or more precisely with her foot). On the wedding day he learns that his ex mistress is going to die and that she wants him to raise their mutual child. Arriving back home to his bride he confesses everything and she says: „Well, we will raise this little one."Gustave Flaubert, a friend of Maupassant’s mother, was crucial for his career. Flaubert supported his first literary attempts. With the publication of his novel "Boule de Suif" in 1880, Maupassant achieved fame and fortune that enabled him to travel extensively. He wrote about 260 novellas as well as several novels ("Bel Ami", 1885). Living with mental problems since 1891, Maupassant died in Passy near Paris in 1893.

A rare pamphlet on African-American education in the South that includes two articles: "The Education of the Negro" by Albion Winegar Tourgee and "Southern Education" by Charles Terry Collins. Tourgee (1838-1905) was a white, Ohio-born attorney and Civil War veteran who became a vocal advocate for racial equality in the South. He moved to North Carolina for health reasons in 1865, and three years later represented his county at the state constitutional convention. "His platform included equal political and civil rights for all citizens; ending property qualifications for jury duty and officeholding; popular election of all state officers, including judges; free public education; abolition of whipping posts, stocks, and branding for those convicted of crimes; judicial reform; and uniform taxation. In good part because of his leadership, these reforms and a homestead exemption, protecting a modest amount of real and personal property from creditors, were written into the North Carolina constitution" - DNB. He later served as a judge, wrote novels exploring the challenges of Reconstruction, and founded the National Citizens' Rights Association, an organization devoted to equality for African-Americans. Here he traces the progress of education among African-Americans since the end of the Civil War, considers the many challenges to improvement, and advocates for "using the power and revenue of th … [Click Below for Full Description]
