Elephant Folio. Signed by Vedder on Limitation Page. In the ten months from May 1883 to March 1884, Elihu Vedder (1836-1923) completed a series of drawings in pencil, ink, chalk, and watercolor to accompany this 1884 edition of the Rubaiyat. All of these original drawings, which were proclaimed a masterwork of American art, were included in a special exhibition of "Elihu Vedder's Drawings for the Rubaiyat" at the National Museum of American Art in 1998. The exhibition also included two first edition printings of this Rubaiyat with Vedder's "accompaniments." Vedder's edition was an instant success, selling out only six days after its debut in Boston on November 8, 1884. With this Rubaiyat, Vedder set the standard for artist-designed books in America and England. Critics rushed to acclaim it as a masterwork. He died in Rome in 1923.

        The Maharajah Duleep Singh and the Government. A Narrative. (Signed)

      Edinburgh : For private circulation; Ballantyne Press 1884 - Inscribed by the Maharajah Duleep Signh to the Earl of Dunraven. In this work the Maharajah discusses: I) the history of Punjab and the political position of the Maharajah; II) a narrative of the life and fortunes of the Maharajah and the Annexation of Punjab; and III) his differences with the British government (i.e. the expatriation of the Maharajah in Britain and British refusal for his return to India). Limp gold stamped black leather binding. Good binding, light curl to cover. vi, 183 p. ; 4to. Quite an interesting book on the problems and questionable legitimacy of British colonial rule in India.

Victorian Britain contented to parade him around in Sikh Maharajah regalia as a living war trophy of British Empire.

        Der Erste und Zweite Kongress des Deutschen Schachbundes. Leipzig 1879. Berlin 1881

      Leipzig: Verlag von Veit & Co, 1884 viii+228 pages with diagrams and tables lacks frontispiece. Octavo (8" x 5 1/2") bound in 3/4 leather with black boards and gilt lettering to spine. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:5210) First edition.The city of Leipzig was the birthplace of the Deutschen Schachbund on July 18th, 1877. Over the next two years sixty-two chess clubs would become members of the foundling chess federation. Hofrat von Gottschall became the chairman of the federation and Hermann Zwanzig was made the general secretary. The Deutschen Schachbund reconvened at the Schützenhaus on July 15th, 1879. To commemorate the meeting, a Schachkongresse master's tournament was organized. This inaugural event was largely an internal affair. Three invitations went out to Austrian chess masters: Berthold Englisch, Karl Pitschel, and Adolf Schwarz. The remaining nine seats went to German chess masters: Louis and Wilfried Paulsen, Max Bier, Ernst Flechsig, Fritz Riemann, Emil Schallopp, Arnold Schottlaender, Johannes Von Minckwitz, and Carl Wemmers. The field and format were extremely limited, with two rounds being played on most days of the tournament. Records have been such that ten of the sixty-six games have not survived to the present day, and therefore they have been omitted from this collection. However, what began with the Deutschen Schachbund in Leipzig in 1879 would in the next two years evolve into one of the stronger and more widely recognized of international chess competitions the world would see over the course of the latter 19th century. Berthold Englisch won this event with 9 wins out of his eleven games.Condition:Rebound in three quarter leather, lacks frontispiece portrait else a very good copy of a scarce tournament.

        Report of the United States Geological Survey of the Territories; Volume 3. The Vertebrata of the Tertiary Formations of the West, Volume III

      Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 1884 - . xxxiv, errata, first part 757pp., second part 759-1009pp. Includes 40 textural woodcuts, 132 extraordinary full page plates (which often are lacking) of which three are double paged and three are folding all with descriptive over leafs. This work is designed to present figures and descriptions of the vast number of species of vertebrates of all classes, but more especially of the mammals of the Tertiary lake-basins of the American West. This was the first time a paleontologist has been able to present a complete and wide-ranging work on the Tertiary period of the Western region. Besides including extinct orders, suborders and families, it has an incredible bearing on evolution (as George Gaylord Simpson was later to note). It took over a year for the Federal bindery to prepare the collations and binding of the massive volume (it weighs just under 15 pounds. It was initially reviewed in the Naturalist which noted that is was a monument of energy and devotion to the science of paleontology. After E.D. Cope's notes and letter to Professor Hayden, this is the most extensive work ever done on the enormous discoveries of fossils including dinosaurs. Bound in maroon cloth, fresh endpapers. Internally text and plates are clean and bright without foxing. Size: Very Thick Quarto

Hon. The Earl of Derby at the Colonial Office. The subjects introduced had reference, chiefly to the state of the Colony of Western Australia, the Colonists and the Aboriginal races. It is a singular and interesting coincidence, that after the lapse of so many years, a pleasing opportunity should he afforded to me, and that I should be still enabled to avail myself of it, to present to his son, another Rt. Hon. Earl of Derby, Secretary of State for the Colonial Department, a Book of mine, bearing strongly on the subjects alluded to above. May I hope for your kindly acceptance of it. G.F.

        Beeton's Christmas Annual for 1860 [-1885]

      London: S.O. Beeton [later Ward, Lock & Tyler or Weldon], 1884. Numerous plates, some folding, and engraved text illustrations. 25 numbers bound in 5 volumes vols. 8vo in two sizes. Bound in contemporary green three-quarter calf and marbled boards, all color wrappers bound in; lower cover of first volume rehinged, joints and corners scuffed, a few volumes shaved in top or bottom margin occasionally grazing an imprint or caption, dampstain in upper outer corner of 1863 annual, scattered spotting. A fine run of this literary annual including five of the satiric plays aimed at the court of Queen Victoria. Samuel Orchart Beeton (1831Ð1877) began his publishing career at the age of 21 with the publication of Uncle TomÕs Cabin by a then unknown American author namedÊStowe. The tremendous success of this undertaking was able to finance his many innovative publishing ventures. His wife wrote the still-quoted Beeton's Book of Household Management, while he produced a series of boyÕs magazines, dictionaries and guides as well as the Christmas Annual which ran from 1860 to 1895. In 1866 he was forced to sell his name and his titles to a rival publisher, for whom he then proceeded to work for the next thirty years. Included in this run are the following satiric plays which formed complete annuals: English NightsÕ Entertainment (1875, not in Sadleir), Faust and Phisto (Sadleir 3481), The Mystery (1877, not in Sadleir), Jon Duan: A Twofold Journey with Manifold Purpose (Sadleir 3480), Edward the Seventh by the authors of the Coming K- (Sadleir 3482), The Key to Edward the Seventh (a guide to the previous play, Sadleir 3482a), Finis; or, Caelebs and the Modern Sphinx (1865, not in Sadleir), and Dizzy-Ben-Dizzi; or the Orphan of Baghdad (1878, not in Sadleir). The 1878 annual includes two stories by Samuel Clemens (?'Mark Twain?") entitled ?'The Echo that didnÕt Answer,?" and ?'ConscienceÕs Little Bill.?" The 1879 annual includes Bret HarteÕs ?'The Great Deadwood Mystery.?".

      Librairie Hachette et cie., 1884, Hardcover, Book Condition: Near Fine, First editionPRESENTLY DISCOUNTED. WAS $3,450.A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, finely bound in red morocco-backed boards with marbled paper sides, spine in compartments with gilt author name, title, and year, marbled endpapers, with the original wrappers bound in; the hinges (internal) have been professionally reinforced with cloth, SIGNED BY FREDERIC MISTRAL AND WITH 8 AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED TIPPED IN; a narrative poem based on a chronicle of the Avignon Popes and given in the form of a short story. An excellent copy with the original faintly soiled wrappers bound in and with an illustrated frontispiece. First edition, first printing, of this work of poetic fiction, in parallel French-Provençale text, by poet and philologist Frederic Mistral (1830-1914). Mistral devoted his life to the recording, championing and composing of Occitan literature and language (the Langue d'Oc), and Nerto was published while Mistral was in the process of creating his Lou Tresor dóu Félibrige (1878-1886), which is still the most comprehensive dictionary of the Occitan language. Frederic Mistral won the 1904 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of the fresh originality and true inspiration of his poetic production, which faithfully reflects the natural scenery and native spirit of his people, and, in addition, his significant work as a Provençal philologist". Mistral specifically cited "Nerto", along with a few of his other major works, in his autobiographical profile written in connection with the award of the Prize to him and, in his speech presenting the Prize to Mistral, C.D. af Wirsén, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, described the work as one that "offers many beautiful pages for the reader's admiration." This is a PRESENTATION COPY, inscribed on the half title, by Mistral to the important Parisian writer, publisher and literary editor Edouard Champion as follows: "A Monsieur Champion, l'éditeur du poète philologic, hommage cordial, F. Mistral" and contains 8 autograph letters signed by Mistral, all addressed to Edouard Champion between 1896 and 1905, and most of a literary concern. Signed copies of "Nerto" are quite uncommon, and signed Association copies, as offered here, are scarce. An Association copy of Mistral's "Nerto" SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY FREDERIC MISTRAL TO THE IMPORTANT LITERARY FIGURE EDOUARD CHAMPION TOGETHER WITH 8 AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED BY MISTRAL TO CHAMPION.

Auf beigefügtem altem Untersatz mit roter Tusche bezeichnet "Reg. VII. INS.IV. Decvmanus Major. Via di Noja.".. Nach dem Besuch der Lehranstalt des Kunstgewerbemuseums in Berlin, setzte er seine Ausbildung bei dem Historienmaler E.J. Schaller (1841-1887) fort. Er führte zuerst dekorative Malereien in Schlössern und Privathäusern aus. Studienreisen durch Italien, Griechenland und Kleinasien folgten von 1883-1885. Ein Panorama von Pergamon, das er zusammen mit M.F. Koch (1859-1930) gemalt hatte, stellte er neben seinen aquarellierten Landschaft- und Architekturstudien 1886 auf der Gr. Berliner Kunstausstellung aus. Die Nachbildungen pompejanischer Wandmalereien, die vom Berliner Kunstgewerbemuseum erworben wurden, brachten ihm den Ruf an die Berliner Porzellanmanufaktur ein, wo er bis zu seinem Rücktritt 1908 als künstlerischer Leiter wirkte. 1893 folgte eine weitere Reise nach Italien. Kips Spezialgebiet war die Porzellanfliesenmalerei in ihrer Verwendung als Wanddekoration. Bis zu seinem Tod 1910 beschickte er erfolgreich zahlreiche Ausstellungen und ist heute mit Landschaftsaquarellen in mehreren deutschen Museen vertreten.

        Raven, The

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1884. - "Once Upon a Midnight Dreary, While I Pondered, Weak and Weary "The First separate American and first edition illustrated by Gustave Doré Probably the Finest Example Extant in the Plain Dust Jacket and Publisher's BoxDORÉ, Gustave, Illustrator. POE, Edgar Allan. The Raven. Illustrated by Gustave Doré. With comment by Edmund C. Stedman. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1884. First separate American edition and first edition illustrated by Doré. Large folio (18 1/4 x 14 3/8 inches: 463 x 365 mm.). 14, [2], [19]-23 pp. Title-page illustration by Elihu Vedder. Twenty-six magnificent full-page plates by Gustave Doré, all but the first and last with captioned tissue-guards. Publisher's gray cloth pictorially decorated in gilt and black, spine decoratively lettered in gilt and black, rear cover with pictorial design in black. Al edges gilt, brown coated end-papers. An absolutely mint and pristine copy. Probably the finest example extant in the exceptionally rare plain paper dust jacket and the publisher's blue paper printed box (slightly worn at edges) housed in a blue cloth clamshell case.Gustave Doré's final work.In 1884, Doré produced 26 steel engravings for an illustrated edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s gloomy classic "The Raven." Like all of his illustrations, the images are rich with detail, yet in contrast to his earlier work, particularly the fine lines of his Quixote, these engravings are softer, characterized by a deep chiaroscuro appropriate to the mood of the poem. We can see in the plate depicting the first lines of the poem, the haunted speaker, "weak and weary," slumped over one of his many "quaint and curious volume[s] of forgotten lore." and also the raven tapping, "louder than before," at the window lattice.By the time Doré’s edition saw publication, Poe’s most famous work had already achieved recognition as one of the greatest of American poems. Its author, however, had died over thirty years previous in near-poverty. A catalog description from a Penn State Library holding of one of Doré’s "Raven" editions compares the two artists:The careers of these two men are fraught with both popular success and unmitigated disappointment. Doré enjoyed phenomenal monetary success as an illustrator in his life-time, however his true desire, to be acknowledged as a fine artist, was never realized. The critics of his day derided his abilities as an artist even as his popularity soared.One might say that Poe suffered the opposite fate—recognized as a great artist in his lifetime, he never achieved financial stability. We learn from the Penn State Rare Collections library that Doré received the rough equivalent of $140,000 for his illustrated edition of "The Raven." Poe, on the other hand, was paid approximately nine dollars for his most famous poem.

        "Von der Hofoper". Eigenh. Manuskript mit U.

      O. O. u. D.. 17 SS. auf 17 Bll. 8vo.. Textvorlage des (wie von alter Hand vermerkt) in der "Österreichischen Rundschau" (II, Nr. 19) abgedruckten Aufsatzes: "In der ersten Zeit der jetzt wirkenden Direktion war die Hofoper den Bühnen ein Vorbild. Ihre Leitung hatte eine unbezähmbare Arbeitslust. Während kurzer Frist wurde eine bedeutende Zahl von Werken neu studiert, die Opernliteratur wurde durchgearbeitet, der Spielplan aufgefrischt. Ein neuer Geist war eingezogen [...]". - Robert Hirschfeld war als Musikkritiker u. a. für die "Wiener Zeitung", das "Neue Wiener Tagblatt" und die "Neue Freie Presse" tätig, redigierte die Programmbücher der Philharmonischen Konzerte und regte im Volksbildungsverein die Veranstaltung von Volkskonzerten mit klassischem Pogramm an, die er acht Jahre auch selbst leitete; 1884 begründete er die Renaissance-Abende zur Pflege des a-capella-Gesanges (Alte Musik) und die Jugendkonzerte. "Er zählte auch zu den Mitbegründern des Wiener Konzertvereins. Von Herbst 1913 bis zu seinem bald darauf erfolgten Ableben war Hirschfeld fachlicher Beirat und Schulinspektor des Salzburger Mozarteums, sollte dessen Musikfeste vorbereiten und dessen Musikschule reformieren. Hirschfeld, verheiratet mit der Wiener Hofopernsägerin (Sopran) Emma (Emmy) Karlona (1868-?), war Mitglied in verschiedenen Kommissionen des Kultus- und Unterrichtsministeriums sowie in Kuratorien u. a. der Wiener Musikakademie und (seit 1898) der Denkmäler der Tonkunst in Österreich" (Österreichisches Musiklexikon, s. v.).
