Oscholars Chronology). In addition, we have correspondence from Donald Mead, Chairman of the Oscar Wilde Society, who states 'the signature and the rest of the inscription look genuine...

        Parsifal: Scenische Bilder nach den Fur die Bayreuther Auffuhrung

      Leipzig: Verlag von Edwin Schloemp, n.d. (1882-1883). Very good antiquarian condition. Joukovsky, Paul von. Oblong Folio (30 x 40 cm). COMPLETE SUITE: 1 f. (letterpress title-page / verso blank). 1 f. ("Vorwort zur ersten und zweiten Auflage" / on verso: "Inhalt"), and 9 heliogravure plates ("neun Lichtdrucke") of scenes and costume designs from Wagner's great opera, printed by Naumann & Schroeder, Leipzig, and mounted on thick card (slight foxing throughout as is true in all copies examined by us); one card with old repair in margin (not affecting image), others with corners bumped. Preserved in the original publisher's brown cloth portfolio manufactured by Wilh. Schaffel, "Dampfbuchbinder, Leipzig" with their ticket inside front cover (extremities worn), the three folding flaps inside portfolio with defects and repairs. With faults, priced accordingly. The scarce folio edition, the only one authorized by Wagner himself, which on account of its large size is preferred to the small octavo edition. This is the single most important record of the first performances of Wagner's "Parsifal." The complete suites of original scenic designs and costume designs by Paul von Joukowsky; the portfolio was issued almost immediately after the famous opening occurred in July, 1882; the designs illustrate precisely how Wagner and his designer envisioned the entire opera, and how their designs were realized onstage for the first and subsequent performances. The plates were executed in heliography after original drawings by set designer Paul von Joukowsky (a.k.a. Joukovsky), who designed all of the costumes and four of the five sets for "Parsifal." Construction of the actual sets was accomplished by the brothers Max and Gotthold Bruckner, of the Coburg Court Theater, after Joukowsky's designs. Joukowsky (1845-1912), a Russian / German aristocrat and "aesthete," is considered to have been among Richard and Cosima Wagner's closest friends. Joukowsky was introduced to the Wagners at the Villa d'Angri in 1880 and accompanied them on their visits to Ravello and Siena; it is a little-known fact that the opera's Klingsor garden was modeled after the lush garden at the Hotel Caruso, in Ravello, where they all vacationed together. Joukowski openly acknowledged himself as a homosexual, and was a special friend of Henry James. "Parsifal" remains Joukowsky's best-known work, and it continues to inspire modern scenic-designers, scholars, and admirers of Wagner's music everywhere. "A key to the [scenic] design and to the significance of Parsifal is transformation. The outer acts move from the open air to the innards of a duomo; the middle act from a sorcerer's turret to a garden of excess, then to blank ruination. Wagner allows his transformations to carry his most oblique and notorious utterance in the drama: as Parsifal and Gurnemanz progress in Act I from the clearing to the Hall of the Grail, the gentle guardian tells the bright upstart, "You see, my son, here time becomes space." It was twenty years before Einstein figured that one out" (SOURCE: BBC Music Magazine, September 2003). LITERATURE: William Apthorp, "Wagner and Scenic Art" (1887) with 4 reproductions of the Joukowsky's designs. See also Kerstin Stutterheim's "Okkulte Weltvorstellungen im Hintergrund dokumentarischer Filme des Dritten Reiches," illustrating the ninth plate.

The directories ran to several editions and were regarded as the standard authorities' (ODNB). - This pilot guide for the Indian Ocean had been published first in 1866, and this is the fourth corrected and updated edition. The section of the Persian Gulf takes up page 822 to 861 and deals, apart from the navigation, with the products and trade of the region, as well as containing descriptions of the major ports and towns along the coast.

        An Exceedingly Rare Original Albumen Photograph of Oscar Wilde with His Original Signature.

      New York City: Napoleon Sarony, 1882. 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 cm x 8,75 cm. Leaf measures approximately 9,5 cm x 17 cm. 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. Together with his Original Signature Penned in ink on white paper, clipped and mounted with the photograph Slightly age-toned from the Victorian mounting paste, mainly to mounting leaf and autograph clipping.

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.
