        Oscar Wilde - Playwright - Novelist - Poet of Victorian Society

      Rare Original Albumen Photograph Taken in New York City by Napoleon Sarony on 2 January 1882 - During Wilde's Tour of America. Mounted on ivory paper, bordered and captioned in manuscript. Photograph measures approximately 5,75 x 8,75 cm. Leaf measures approximately 9,5 x 17 cm. Together with his Original Signature Penned in ink on white paper, clipped and mounted with the photograph. John Cooper, historian and scholar, member of the Oscar Wilde Society in London, and founder of the Oscar Wilde Society of America, has compiled a most impressive collection of images, "the only online or print archive of all the known photographs of Oscar Wilde taken by Napoleon Sarony." While Oscar Wilde's pose in the present photograph is very similar to some of the images taken 2 January 1882, this image from the shoot is not present his collection. As such this may very well be the first public appearance of this particular photograph. Shortly after his arrival in New York City for his 1882 Lecture Tour of America, Oscar Wilde posed for a series of photographs taken by Napoleon Sarony, who was at the time the most famed portrait photographer in America. Taken at Sarony's studio at 37 Union Square, New York City, on 5 January 1882, Sarony's photographs of Oscar Wilde with his long wavy locks have become his most iconic images today. Wilde would revisit New York in August 1883; Sarony taking several more photographs, this time with Wilde's hair cut styled in a much shorter boy cut. Unknown to many today, the first ever production of an Oscar Wilde play was in fact in New York City, and many years before his great success on the London stage. In August 1883 Wilde's first, though unsuccessful, play "Vera, or The Nihilists," was staged for the first time; Wilde made his second visit to America for a month to oversee the production. Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854-1900), renowned Irish playwright, novelist, essayist, and poet, needs no introduction. In his witty and dramatic style, he candidly exposed elements of humanity, and taboo subjects, and in doing so, earned enormous fame and success in entertaining Britain's late Victorian era citizens. At the same time he received harsh critiques from the conservation traditionalists. In the early 1890s he was one of London's most popular playwrights. On 24 December 1881, Oscar Wilde, aged 25, sailed for America from Liverpool aboard the S.S. Arizona bound for New York. The ship arrived late on 2 January 1882, and lay at quarantine overnight. The following morning, the Arizona pulled into its dock and passengers headed for the customs shed at Castle Garden. The reasons for his much-heralded visit was to promote Gilbert & Sullivan's latest operetta "Patience", and to make his debut as a lecturer on subjects of his own choosing as long as he enjoyed the line of work. He was most keen, however, to see if he could have his tragedy "Vera or, The Nihilists," written earlier in 1881, properly cast in America as he was not pleased with its production in Britain. It was further rumored that he intended to publish a new book of poems (his first) during his stay. At the time of his visit, the Statue of Liberty was not yet in the harbor; the Brooklyn Bridge was still being constructed; the tallest building was Trinity Church; New York City was gas-lit and its population approximately 1 million. After nearly one year, he departed for England on 27 December 1882. Oscar Wilde is remembered for his epigrams, his clever and controversial plays, his novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray", as well as the circumstances of his imprisonment and early death. His legacy continues with frequent performances of many of his works, including "The Importance of Being Earnest." Napoleon Sarony (1821-1896) was an American lithographer and photographer. He was a highly popular portrait photographer, best known for his portraits of the stars of late-19th-century American theater. Sarony established his own photography studio in 1867, situated at 37 Union Square, during a time when celebrity portraiture was immensely popular. Photographers would pay their famous subjects to sit for them, and then retain full rights to sell the pictures. Sarony reportedly paid famed stage actress Sarah Bernhardt $1,500 to pose for his camera, the equivalent of more than $20,000 today. Included among the thousands of people that came into Sarony's world were many distinguished people, such as American Civil War General, William T. Sherman, and literary figures Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), Lew Wallace and Oscar Wilde. In 1894 he published his portfolio of prints titled, "Sarony's Living Pictures."Associations One of the photographs taken of Oscar Wilde on 2 January 1882 (photograph number 18), became the subject of a copyright infringement suit by Sarony against the Burrow-Giles Lithographic Company, which had marketed unauthorized lithograph trade cards containing the image. The courts awarded a $610 judgment payable to Sarony (approximately $13,000 today).

        The Prince and the Pauper.

      New York, James R. Osgood and Company 1882 - First edition, first issue with uncorrected text; p. 124, line 1 reading "estate"; p. 263 "do not"; p. 362 "reigned." Franklin Press imprint on verso of title page. Octavo, original publisher's green pictorial cloth. In near fine condition with only light shelfwear. BAL 3402; Johnson p. 39-41. The Prince and the Pauper is a treasured historical satire, played out in two very different socioeconomic worlds of 16th-century England, centers around the lives of two boys born in London on the same day: Edward, Prince of Wales, and Tom Canty, a street beggar. During a chance encounter, the two realize they are identical and, as a lark, decide to exchange clothes and roles -- a situation that briefly, but drastically, alters the lives of both youngsters. The Prince, dressed in rags, wanders about the city's boisterous neighborhoods among the lower classes and endures a series of hardships; poor Tom, now living with the royals, is constantly filled with the dread of being discovered for who and what he really is. Brimming with gentle humor and discerning social scrutiny, this timeless tale of transposed identities remains one of Twain's most popular and best-loved novels.

        The Horse in Motion As Shown by Instantaneous Photography with a Study on Animal Mechanics Founded on Anatomy and the Revelations of the Camera in Which is Demonstrated the Theory of Quadrupedal Locomotion

      Boston: James R. Osgood. Good with no dust jacket; Frontispiece and title page professionally . repaired at margins, gift inscription on front flyleaf, cup ring and white . paint stains on title page, pages toned.. 1882. Hardcover. Nicely rebound in brown cloth with gilt-stamped leather spine labels. Top edges gilt. 127 pages of text and 107 plates, including five heliotypes and 9 color plates illustrating equine anatomy. Preface by Leland Stanford. Photo of book before rebinding laid in. An important book in both the history of photography and equine literature with a fascinating back story about how it was researched and written. Railroad baron, California Governor, and horse racing mogul Leland Stanford (he also bankrolled the founding of Stanford University) had a wager with some of his horse racing buddies about whether all four hooves left the ground at a point during a horse's trot. Stanford hired antiquarian bookseller-turned-photographer Eadweard Muybridge to provide photographic evidence of this split-second event, which he did in 1872 with an elaborate set-up of multiple cameras and other equipment. In 1874, Muybridge shot and killed his wife's lover and was embroiled in a dramatic court battle (bankrolled by Stanford) in which he pleaded insanity based on severe head injuries received from an earlier stagecoach accident, but which the jury decided was deserving of an acquittal as a justifiable homicide. Muybridge continued his equine photography projects for his benefactor until the present volume was published, in which Muybridge's photographs were used as a basis for most of the illustrations, but which only briefly mentions his name in the preface and appendix. Muybridge later published his landmark and comprehensive Animal Locomotion series in eleven volumes (Parr and Badger, vol. 1, p. 52). This 1887 opus contained 781 plates of animals and humans in various actions and contributed greatly to scientific and artistic knowledge of anatomy and movement. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall .

        Blutplättchen und Blutgerinnung. Von Prof. G. Bizzozero in Turin.

      - Zbl. med. Wiss., 20/20. - Berlin, August Hirschwald, 20. Mai 1882, 8°, (2) pp.; mit Stempel von "Prof.Dr. Alexander Rollett". Extrem seltener Sonderdruck! - - "Schüttelt man einige Zwirnfasern mit soeben entzogenem Blute, so werden sie zuerst von großen Haufen Blutplättchen mit daran anhaftenden sparsamen weißen und roten Blutkörperchen überzogen. Nur in einer zweiten Periode schlägt sich um die Zwirnfasern und Blutplättchenhaufen das Fibrin nieder. - Wenn man nun die Zwirnfasern vor dem Beginn der zweiten Periode hervorzieht, sie schnell in einer indifferenten Chlornatriumlösung wäscht und sie dann in 3-4 Cc. einer nach A. Schmidt's Vorschriften bereiteten proplastischen Flüssigkeit taucht, so tritt constant in dieser letzteren eine bedeutende Gerinnung ein. - Wovon können solche Gerinnungen hergeleitet werden? Es ist leicht experimentell nachzuweisen, dass die Gerinnung weder durch die Zwirnfasern, noch durch die wenigen roten Blutkörperchen bedingt wird. Schwieriger ist es dagegen, den relativen Anteil der Leukocyten und der Blutplättchen an der coagulirenden Wirkung zu bestimmen. In der Tat kennen wir einerseits keine Methode, um die Blutplättchen ganz frei von Leukocyten zu sammeln und ihre Wirksamkeit zu prüfen. Andererseits kann auch von der Beschaffung und Prüfung von Flüssigkeiten, welche nur Leukocyten ." - - Rothschuh Nr. 97: "Bedeutung der Blutplättchen als Träger der Gerinnung"

      - Casselis Cattorum [Kassel], Theodor Fischer, 1882. 4to (27.3 x 22.1 cm). vii, 301 pp., 16 finely lithographed plates of which 13 superbly hand-coloured. Near contemporary grained blue half cloth over grained burgundy cloth. Script title on the spine.l Rare, rather early, and extremely well-illustrated work on Japanese Mollusca, which includes new species. Wilhelm Bernard Rudolph [or Rudolf] Hadrian Dunker (1809-1885) was geology professor at the University of Marburg, and founder of Palaeontographica, the most important palaeontographical periodical of the 19th century. He was one of the most important malacologists of his time (Wikipedia). He was usually known as Wilhelm, a name sometimes Latinized to Guilielmo, as on the title page of this work. The plates are of great accuracy and beauty. Their quality was not reached again until more than 50 years later when the Japanese started to publish their own full colour shell books, printed in 6 to 12 colours. Binding a bit shaky, first three plates rather foxed, as usual; the other coloured plates quite clean. Nissen ZBI, 1208. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
