JOACHIM, Joseph 1831-1907
1884. 1 page. Oblong folio (320 x 234 mm). 7 measures from an unidentified composition in D minor for violin, marked "Allo. risoluto." Notated in ink on hand-ruled staves. Inscribed "Zur freundlichen Erinnerung an Ihren aufrichtig ergebenen." Together with bust-length carte-de-visite portrait photograph 61 x 99 mm., Berlin, ca. 1884, mounted to card stock. Photograph slightly worn and soiled. Joachim was one of the finest violinists of the 19th century. His career brought him into contact with the leading composers of the period including Mendelssohn, Schumann, Liszt, and Brahms. "Joachim's paramount importance as an interpreter in the second half of the 19th century stems partly from his direct contact with many leading composers of the day. Like Clara Schumann among pianists, he represented a new species of 'ascetic' violinist, subordinating himself to the composer rather than glorying in his virtuoso technique. This philosophy drew him inevitably to chamber music. As a soloist he concentrated on just a handful of works: Bach's solo sonatas, the violin concertos of Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Viotti and Spohr, and his own concertos, notably the Konzert in ungarischer Weise op.11. It was Joachim who initiated entire recitals devoted to string quartets, and in them he presented the entire classical repertory, from Haydn to Brahms." Beatrix Borchard in Grove Music Online. A fine example. Item #31349.

SMYTH, C. Piazzi.
Robert Banks, London, 1884. Hardcover. Small octavo. xii, 13-128pp. Original green cloth with black borders and pyramid illustration on upper cover, gilt titling to spine and upper cover, b&w illustrations, appendixes. Charles Piazzi Smyth (1819 – 1900), was for a time the Astronomer Royal for Scotland and pioneered a number of innovations in astronomy as well as studies of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Inspired by the work of John Taylor, Smyth paid his own way to Egypt to examine and measure the Great Pyramid. Over time he produced four books that were focussed largely on the Great Pyramid, "Our Inheritance in the Great Pyramid" (1864), "Life and Work at the Great Pyramid During the Months of January, February, March, and April, A.D. 1865" (1867), "On the Antiquity of Intellectual Man: From a Practical and Astronomical Point of View" (1868), and "New Measures of the Great Pyramid" (1884). Alongside Taylor's 'The Great Pyramid: Why Was It Built? & Who Built It?,' these became the core works of the school of thought that saw the Great Pyramid as a tool of Biblical Prophecy. This title - which was published much later than the first three, was basically written to update it with regard to then-current research and discussions. Although many of Smyth's arguments are now largely discredited he was nonetheless a significant figure in the study of the Great Pyramid: his measurements of it were the most accurate of the time, and he was the first to photograph its inside passages under artificial (magnesium) light. Spine ends and corners lightly bruised and chafed, hinges rubbed, rea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jackson, Helen Hunt
Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1884. First edition. Near Fine. Original gray publisher's cloth binding embossed with red and gilt to spine and front board. Lacking the scarce dust jacket. Faint offsetting to the edge of the rear board and the extremities a trifle bumped. Green floral endpapers. Early ownership signature of Helen E. Reede to front flyleaf. In all, a square, pleasing copy of an important work usually found in worn condition.Following a series of devastating personal losses, Helen Hunt Jackson turned to writing both fiction and non-fiction as a means of supporting herself. Throughout her career, her works had a decidedly progressive bent. "By the 1880s, when Jackson first visited Southern California, she was an unabashed activist as well as a belletrist. Ramona offers an almost unmitigated denunciation of U.S. imperialism in California, presenting the region in a dystopian light, as a paradise gone bad" (Phillips). The work for which she is now best remembered, Ramona narrates the tragedy of a half-indigenous and half-Scottish woman and her indigenous lover Alessandro. The prejudices of those around them force the couple "to wander through Southern California as through a nightmare world, isolated, dispossessed of their rightful connection to the land, and longing to be consoled for the ruin of their dreams. Jackson created the first figures in a long line of disappointed, deracinated heroes who populate the later Southern California fiction of writers as diverse as Nathanael West, Evelyn Waugh, Thomas Pynchon, and Joan Didion" (Phillips).

Jackson, Helen Hunt
Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1884. First edition. Original gray publisher's cloth binding embossed with red and gilt to spine and front board. Lacking the scarce dust jacket. Faint offsetting to the edge of the rear board and the extremities a trifle bumped. Green floral endpapers. Early ownership signature of Helen E. Reede to front flyleaf. In all, a square, pleasing copy of an important work usually found in worn condition. Following a series of devastating personal losses, Helen Hunt Jackson turned to writing both fiction and non-fiction as a means of supporting herself. Throughout her career, her works had a decidedly progressive bent. "By the 1880s, when Jackson first visited Southern California, she was an unabashed activist as well as a belletrist. Ramona offers an almost unmitigated denunciation of U.S. imperialism in California, presenting the region in a dystopian light, as a paradise gone bad" (Phillips). The work for which she is now best remembered, Ramona narrates the tragedy of a half-indigenous and half-Scottish woman and her indigenous lover Alessandro. The prejudices of those are them force the couple "to wander through Southern California as through a nightmare world, isolated, dispossessed of their rightful connection to the land, and longing to be consoled for the ruin of their dreams. Jackson created the first figures in a long line of disappointed, deracinated heroes who populate the later Southern California fiction of writers as diverse as Nathanael West, Evelyn Waugh, Thomas Pynchon, and Joan Didion" (Phillips).

[Peck, George Wilbur]
[1884]. First Edition. No Binding. Very good. A Very Good RARE ORIGINAL WOODBLOCK POSTER for a stage play featuring Peck's Bad Boy. Civil War Veteran, Politician, and Author George Wilbur Peck (1840-1916), who owned a Wisconsin newspaper known as the "Sun", authored a humorous weekly newspaper column which often featured a character of his own invention named Henry "Hennery" Peck who first appeared in 1882. The character was tremendously popular and became known as "Peck's Bad Boy". Peck went on to write a series of books' featuring Hennery Peck who was known for pulling pranks on members of the town, but most especially on his father, for the pure joy of causing trouble and chaos. Peck began writing these stories, which were turned into books as well, in the early 1880s. 'Peck's Bad Boy' became a household name in the United States and was so popular that he entered the American lexicon with the dictionary definition of "Peck's bad boy" being "one whose bad behavior is a source of embarrassment or annoyance". Charles E. Pidgin adapted the first story into a stage play, and various companies began performing the Play around the country. In 1891, then teenager and vaudeville actor George M. Cohan toured for thirty-five weeks in the role of Hennery. After many of Cohan's performances, he had to fight his way out of the theater as neighborhood boys would be waiting in alleyways to test their fighting abilities against those of Hennery Peck, who ended the Play by stating 'I can still lick any kid in town!'. Notably, these Bad Boy stories became so fashionable for a tim … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hectographic copy 1884 of the manuscript of the copyist of the forbidden article of Tolstoy L.N. Moscow 1884 208 pages 1 sheet is missing (195-196, 205-206 pp.) The article "What is my faith?" Was published on January 22, 1884. The book was printed in a separate edition, circulation of 50 copies. Having received the conclusions of the Moscow censorship committees of the secular and religious, the head of the Main Press Directorate on February 14 ordered "on the unconditional prohibition of the composition." On February 18 of the same year, 39 copies were seized at the Kushneryov printing house. this work. Due to criticism of church doctrine, a censorship ban was immediately imposed on the book. But after the confiscation of the circulation, individual requests for issuing copies of the book rained down in the Censorship Committee. Among those who asked were: Minister of the Interior Count Tolstoy, other ministers, many senior officials. In the palace and court spheres they also wanted to have several copies. As a result, the entire circulation escaped destruction and was sold in a rather unusual, but quite legal way, taking a copy of it to a personal collection. On February 19, Tolstoy reported: "My book was published and banned, but not burnt, but taken to Petersburg, where, as far as I know, those who banned it take it apart and read it. And that's good. " As the "Confession" and religious and philosophical works of the 1880s, the treatise went hand in hand, in hectographed and lithographed copies.

Carayon), 72 pp. Rare catalogue de la première rétrospective consacrée à Manet, organisée à l'École nationale des Beaux-Arts avec une préface d'Emile Zola en édition originale : "Au lendemain de la mort d'Edouard Manet, il y eut une brusque apothéose, toute la presse s'inclina en déclarant qu'un grand peintre venait de disparaître. Ceux qui chicanaient et qui plaisantaient encore la veille se découvrirent, rendirent publiquement hommage au maître triomphant enfin dans son cercueil. Pour nous, les fidèles de la première heure, ce fut une victoire douloureuse. Eh quoi ! l'éternelle histoire recommençait, la bêtise publique tuait les gens, avant de leur dresser des statues ! Ce que nous avions dit quinze ans plus tôt, tous le répétaient maintenant. (...) Mais, aujourd'hui, la réparation va être complète. Une exposition des principaux tableaux de l'artiste a été organisée avec un soin pieux, l'Administration a bien voulu prêter les salles de l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts, acte de libéralisme intelligent dont il faut la remercier, car il se trouve peut-être encore des crânes durs que l'entrée de Manet dans le sanctuaire de la tradition offensera. Voilà son oeuvre, venez et jugez." Le catalogue comprend 179 numéros et s'achève par un "Discours prononcé par M. Antonin Proust sur la tombe de Manet".
