        Autograph musical quotation signed

      . 4 measures encompassing the range of the violin, marked "Etendue du Violon," notated on a large oblong octavo leaf (167 x 227 mm.). Inscribed "A mon collegue [!] et bon ami A. Fischer... Camillo Sivori Paris 17 Fevrier 1882." Very slightly foxed; slight abrasion to right-hand edge.. Sivori "studied violin with Paganini's former teacher Giacomo Costa... Between October 1822 and May 1823 Paganini was in Genoa, and, favourably struck by the young violinist, decided to give him lessons... Paganini regarded Sivori as the only pupil for whose formation he was responsible ('the only person who can call himself my pupil', he wrote in 1828)... His virtuoso repertory was based principally on his own compositions and those of Paganini, but unlike his teacher, Sivori also became an exceptional performer of Classical and early Romantic chamber music... A stylish composer, who displayed a lovely melodic vein, Sivori composed around 60 pieces." Flavio Menardi Noguera in Grove online

Original printed wrappers, 31 pp. The author has written on other visits to Indian villages and agencies, but this is an early visit and he describes the four weeks spent with the Sioux tribes.

      London: Christie, Manson & Woods, 1882.. 234 pp. + plates. 8vo. Cloth. First edition. Illus. with 77 monochrome carbon print photographic plates. Buchanan 1. Two versions of this catalogue were produced, one without plates, and this, the illustrated version, with carbon prints by James Craig Annan (1864-1946), son of the Scottish photographer Thomas Annan. Annan was only 18 when he produced this series of prints (uncredited) for the spectacular Duke of Hamilton sale. There were 2213 lots auctioned over fifteen days in five sections which brought in 397, 000 British pounds! In addition to the paintings offered, which could have easily formed their own museum -works by Botticelli, Breugel, Da Vinci, Durer, Fra Angelico, Giorgione, Holbein, Rembrandt, Rubens, Titian, Van Dyke, Veronese, and more- there was French furniture, Asian bronzes and lacquers, Sevres and Desden porcelain, and decorative objects in profusion. Photographs were somewhat new to illustrating auctions and "this is an early use of photography for a sale catalogue, " according to William Buchanan in his "J. Craig Annan. Selected Texts and Bibliography, " (Oxford. 1994), p. 137. Annan would go on to become an important British pictorial photographer and one of its master photogravure printers, contributing both is own work and gravures for other British photographers to Stiglitz' Camera Work (the January 1914 issue -no. 45- was devoted entirely to him). Scarce, especially in such beautiful condition and in such a fine binding. A near fine copy, rubbing on verso of plates, plates numbered in pencil.

        THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY

      1882. In Three Volumes. London: Macmillan and Co., 1882. 24 pp Vol III ads dated Dec 1881. Original dark blue-green cloth decorated in black. First Edition, second impression, of James's best-known work, the account of Isabel Archer and her many suitors -- of varying ages, varying wealth, and varying ethics. THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY has become the high-spot title of Henry James -- far and away his most sought-after title. The first impression was dated 1881 on the title pages, was published in three volumes in November 1881, and consisted of 750 copies; this second impression (not so stated) is dated 1882 on the title pages, was published in January 1882, and consisted of only 250 copies (some of these 250 copies were issued in three volumes in the same cloth as the first impression, while some were issued three-volumes-in-one in red cloth); Macmillan next published a one-volume "New Edition," in June 1882, consisting of 1000 copies.~This copy is in three separate volumes, which is to say in the same cloth binding as the first impression. Condition is good-to-very good: although the spines look quite nice, with bright gilt, there is faint evidence of lending library labels once having resided on each front cover, one volume has wear on an outer joint, and all three volumes have some cracking of the endpapers at the gutter. Each volume bears a personal bookplate plus a personal "Memorial Room" plate; in one volume the inner 3/4-inch of the front endpaper is glued down to the paste-down. The 1881 first impression, essentially identical to this set except for the date on the title pages, would today bring $35,000 or more in fine condition -- so this set is a possibility for someone wanting a copy of James's big title in the same binding, at a far far lower price.

In the above paper, a triumph in science and medicine, Koch isolated and identified the tubercle bacillus, establishing the infectious nature of the disease, and opened the way to combat one of the worst scourges of mankind. Using body fluids and blood serum as host, Koch was able to cause anthrax and tubercular organisms to grow outside the body." "Koch is really our medical Galileo, who... introduced us to a new world. It is not too much to say that the demonstrations by Koch of the 'bacillus tuberculosis' (1882) is, in its far-reaching results, one of the most momentous discoveries ever made" --Osler, Evolution of Modern Medicine. Koch was awarded the Nobel Prize for this work. Printing and the Mind of Man 366. Very good in marbled-paper covers. Stock#OB573 oversize.

        TWO ON A TOWER. A ROMANCE

      London: Sampson, Low, Marston et. al, 1882. First Edition. hardcover. Front joint of first volume cracking with a small nick at the head of the spine. Text clean, bindings bright and firm with minor rubbing. Three volumes bound in early blue 3/4 morocco by Riviere with gilt lettering and design on the spines and five raised bands. All half-titles present, and the original green cloth spines are bound in at the rear of each corresponding volume. The first volume has been SIGNED by Hardy above the title. A novel relating the love affair between Lady Viviette Constantine and Swithin St. Cleeve who meet at the astronomical observatory that St. Cleeve has set up atop an abandoned monument tower on Lady Constantine's estate. Hardy made considerable revisions in the text of all three volumes, beginning with the second edition of 1883, and added new prefaces, as the various later collected editions of Hardy's works appeared. In his Preface to the 1895 Wessex Edition, Hardy wrote that his novel was "the outcome of a wish to set the emotional history of two infinitesimal lives against the stupendous background of the stellar universe, and to impart to readers the sentiment that of these contrasting magnitudes the smaller might be the greater to them as men." These original texts, as they were published in book form, are now generally considered the most sought after and the current Penguin series of Hardy's novels uses this text, even reproducing the title page of volume I. Sadleir ranks this as Hardy's "seventh scarcest book" and all original editions of Hardy's novels that have been SIGNED by him are exceptionally uncommon.

        DENVER DOLL, The Detective Queen; or, Yankee Eisler's Big Surround. Beadle's Half Dime Library. Vol. XI. No. 277

      New York:: Beadle and Adams, No. 98 William Street.. 1882.. 4to. 11" x 8-1/8". 1st edition, later issue (Johannsen BEADLE 277-1/2DL). Ca 1888. Not in Hubin. 15, [1] pp. Text triple column. Last page an advert.. Printed self wrappers.. Spine indents, indicating the work was probably bound at one time. (and, no doubt accounting for its survival, as well as relatively. nice condition). Overall VG+ - NF (paper beginning to yellow, as. usual).. The 'Denver Doll', our research indicates, has the distinction of being the one of the earliest female detective characters in US fiction. To quote Wheeler, " .. she was a splendid specimen of young womanhood.... It was no secret she was a detective; it was no secret she was a terror to. [sic]" This 'Denver Doll, The Detective Queen' was a creation of the prolific dime novelist Edward L. Wheeler, who initially appears in this 14 November 1882 issue of Beadle & Adam's HALF-DIME LIBRARY series, however, despite the charm & competence imbued by Wheeler, the 'Denver Doll' failed to rouse the enthusiasm of the early 1880's dime novel customers & she quickly faded from the scene a few months later with the publication of the 4th series title [March 1883]. This quick public expiration has, in turn, contributed to the present scarcity of the 'Denver Doll' series titles, as well as her lack of notoriety in today's mystery-collector circles... in fact, many believe that the first female detective in US literature was Amelia Butterworth, who appeared much later in Anna Katherine Green's 1897 work, THAT AFFAIR NEXT DOOR (cf. Blain. FEMINIST COMPANION, p. 456). This the first title in the Denver Doll series and can be said to be quite rare. . Large wood engraving to front wrapper.

        Still life of Red Plums

      Britain: Original Watercolor, 1882-1890. Matted in Rag Board Fine A refined and rare original watercolor painted on clay-coated stock. Fine condition. Image size: 11 x 14 cm. Sheet size: 24 x 29.6 cm. (Elegantly matted in Ivory rag board with gilt French line decoration. Sized to 14 x 18 inches). With dedication leaf 'Edith Cast Faber from her Mother (a loving memento) painted by Mrs. J.A. Faber about 1882-1890'. & Classified as florilegia: ornamental flowers (or here fruit) painted for beauty rather than scientific or medicinal appeal, this lovely Still life of Red Plums was evidently painted from nature by an accomplished hand. Although the art of flower painting was a favored, traditional pastime for gentile women of nineteenth century Britain, few works boast the refined sense of composition, color, light and shading as evidenced by the practiced, skillful execution of this still life. To date the works by Mrs. Faber are undocumented however this elegant composition clearly reflects her appreciation for and mature expression of the glories of the garden, the natural world and the still life tradition. &

        Marion Fay [TRUE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION]

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1882. First edition. Wrappers. Near Fine. A Near Fine copy of the First American edition of Anthony Trollope's "Marion Fay". EXTREMELY SCARCE. An extremely rare (of the "utmost rarity" per Smith) copy of the TRUE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION of Trollope's "Marion Fay", published by Harper & Brothers in their newspaper format Franklin Square Library. This is a Very Good + to Near Fine copy of this, the true first American edition. There are a very few corner creases and very minor chipping, much less than one would expect. As is the case with almost all extant issues in the series (and there are very few), the outer wrapper is lacking. The spine is gently rolled and what appears to be some newer stitching has been added in the middle of the spine as several pages have separated from the spine staples. The spine staples are virtually unrusted and there is virtually no soiling or foxing. The pages, including the illustrations, are unusually bright and clean and, all in all, this copy is in remarkable condition given the ephemeral nature of the publication. The Franklin Square Library series was published by Harper to meet the large demand for literature at a low price. Usually selling for 10 or 15 cents a copy, the series eventually replaced Harper's Library of Select Novels Series and its Half-Hour Series. Trollope's "Is He Popenjoy" was the first issue in the Series, and all of the remaining Trollope works published by Harper (except for some of his nonfiction works) were published in this Series. (Munro published the first American editions of Trollope's "Cousin Henry", "Two Heroines of Plumplington" and "The Landleaguers" in his newspaper format Seaside Library series.) (See Smith's Bibliography of Trollope's US publications.) Smith states: "This new series and its advertising logic sounded the death knell for collectors. First editions in this series are no longer books, but newspapers. Their fragility, format, and ephemeral makeup discouraged most buyers from keeping them.....few have survived." According to Smith, these issues are "rarely seen for sale and are usually found only in private collections and in certain research libraries." An extraordinary opportunity for the Trollope collector. Most Trollope collectors will never see this issue, much less own one. As with Trollope's first novels, the chance to own one is unlikely to arise often, if at all, for almost all collectors. AN EXTREMELY SCARCE TROLLOPE FIRST. A collection distinguishing item.

        The Orchid Album, comprising coloured figures and descriptions of new, rare, and beautiful orchidaceous plants. Conducted by ... Warner... The botanical descriptions by Thomas Moore

      London: B.S. Williams (I-VIII) and B.S. Williams & Son (IX-X), 1882. Volume 1 only (of 11), large quarto. (12 1/2 x 10 inches). Text complete and illustrated with 48 superb hand coloured lithograph plates of orchids numbered 1-48 - the volume complete and the plates extraordinarily clean. Contemporary half blue morocco, a bit rubbed. This important record of the greatest orchid varieties discovered and described during the nineteenth century, with beautiful illustrations of the highest quality by John Nugent Fitch. This important work was published periodically by B.S. Williams from his nurseries in Holloway, London, from 1882 until his death in 1890. His son, Henry Williams, continued the publication. Its selection, based largely on the discoveries made during the nineteenth century, offers an unparalleled record of all the best orchid varieties before the impact of the captive-bred hybrids. The publisher notes, "The great advances which have been made within the last few years in the introduction and the cultivation of Exotic Orchids, have suggested the desirability of devoting a monthly publication to the illustration of the best forms of these singular and aristocratic plants, and also to the explanation of the most successful methods of growing them." In addition there are numerous notes given at the end of the specific descriptions about contemporary orchid collections, shows and growers in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. These offer a valuable glimpse into the world of the late-Victorian orchid enthusiast, and contain information, available no where else, that casts light onto the early history of the captive cultivation of a number of varieties and species. The plates by John Nugent Fitch (a member of the greatest family of British 19th-century botanical artists) benefit greatly from the large format of the work "Being of Royal Quarto size, the pages of the Album are sufficiently large to enable the artist to produce ample and intelligible portraits of the plants without their becoming cumbersome." The resultant work offers both a fascinating insight into the state of knowledge about orchids and their cultivation, and also an unrivalled visual record by one of the great botanical artists of the day.
