         Certified copy of a legal documenting providing Grant right-of-way and the right to erect a beach house in Long Branch

      Near Fine. One legal folio folded at the top to make four pages. Old folds as filed, soiling and small tears at the extremities of the folds, very good or better. A certified handwritten copy prepared in March 1885, shortly before Grant's death, of an 1880 contract between Grant and Lewis B. Brown of New York City. Signed by various clerks with one seal, but NOT SIGNED BY GRANT. The document gives Grant "...forever a right of way to the Atlantic Ocean from Seabrook (now Ocean) Avenue over and upon the lot... and the privilege to erect a bathing house of moderate size upon the Shore of said Ocean... ." Presumably the "bathing house" was what we'd call a cabana. The document has been docketed and stamped in 1887, two years after Grant's death. Grant's shore house served as the Summer White House during his two terms from 1869-1877, obviously this right-of-way was issued after his term was over.

         Marius the Epicurean (2 vols)

      Macmillan, London 1885 - 239pp, 218pp. FINELY BOUND by ANASTASIA POWER, signed with her monogram, 19AP04. Crushed blue morocco with gilt decoration on front and rear covers featuring a symmetrical chevron design enclosed within an onlaid green border with gilt leaves, dots, corner flowers, all within fillet borders. Spine in six raised compartments with gilt titling, author and volume number on three, and the year 1885 at foot. Other gilt spine decoration includes smaller repetition of cover design. All in all, a very attractive design. T.e.g, other page edges uncut. Front and rear turn-ins with three lines of gilt fillet, the rear board centering Anastasia's Power's monogram. Green end papers. Text block on fine laid paper. *** Oxford professor, essayist, art critic and novelist, WALTER PATER (1839-1894) was notable for defining the ethos of the Aesthetic Movement in Edwardian England. In writing a review of William Morris's The Earthly Paradise for the Westminster Review in 1868, Pater famously said: "Not the fruit of experience, but experience itself, is the end. A counted number of pulses only is given to us.How shall we be present always at the focus where the greatest number of vital forces unite in their purest energy?.To burn always with this hard gemlike flame, to maintain this ecstasy, is success in life." (Parry, 1996) This novel represents Pater's only completed fictional work, written while on sabbatical from Oxford University between 1881 and 1884. The novel tells the story of Marius,an Italian youth from a well-bred, rural background, who makes his way to Rome around the year 170 AD. He encounters friends and mentors along the way who mold his philosophical views. He becomes secretary to the Emperor Marcus Aurelius for a time, and has further adventures upon his return to the countryside when he is mistaken as a Christian and undergoes great travail. The novel was intended to build upon Pater's ideas about the ideal aesthetic life, where the pursuit of sensation and insight becomes a worthy end unto itself. His work has been greatly admired for its pioneering admixture of narrative with historical detail and classical text, foreshadowing construction devices of the modern novel.(Levey, 1985) *** ANASTASIA (ANNIE) POWER, English bookbinder working mid 1880's to around 1930. She was the youngest of nine children of a Whitby,Yorkshire oculist and his wife. (Tidcombe, 1996) Her training in bookbinding was probably an economic necessity given such a large family, but in any case she managed to get to London by the 1880's and trained with Douglas Cockerell as a bookbinder. Traditionally, this work was done by men, as the bookbinding guilds did not employ women. She was said to have been much influenced by Cockerell's designs. Famous in his own right as an inventive and artistic binder, Cockerell had been trained by Thomas Cobden-Sanderson, (original bookbinder at the Kelmscott Press) to whose Doves Bindery Cockerell was apprenticed beginning in 1893. Anastasia was either connected to, or a member of, the following: the Guild of Handicraft, formed by C.R. Ashbee, (whose members included William Morris and Holman Hunt); she also bound books for Cobden-Sanderson's Essex House Press sometime after its founding in 1898; The Guild of Women Binders and Hampstead Bindery in London in the period 1898-1904. A nineteen year old Virginia Woolf has been documented as studying bookbinding with Anastasia Power and her friend Sylvia Stebbing in a bindery they shared on Museum Street in London in 1901. (Tony Bradshaw, 2010) This training would be of use to Woolf when she and her husband Leonard later established the Hogarth Press. While some middle class lady book binders of the day had brief careers, Anastasia Power's work would continue another thirty or so years, well after marriage to painter Gerald Loosely in 1905.

Wrappers slightly worn and lacking at outer margins, with competent repairs. Occasional light foxing, soiling, and browning; table of contents with minor annotation in purple ink; several leaves with small tears or perforations to margins, occasionally affecting music. In very good condition overall. Deluxe Limited Edition. Rare. The present copy "No. 11 Exemplaire réservé à Monsieur Léon Kerst." As Massenet's Manon was issued in a limited edition of 50 copies shortly before the publication of the present score, it seems likely that this edition of Le Cid was limited to approximately the same number of copies. First performed in Paris at the Opéra on November 30, 1885 to a libretto by Adolphe d'Ennery, Edouard Blau and Louis Gallet after Pierre Corneille's drama (1637). "The first performance of Le Cid confirmed Massenet's reputation as a successful opera composer, marking as it did his return to the Opéra for the first time since Le roi de Lahore eight years previously and coming a year after the double triumph of Manon by the Opéra Comique and the first performances in Paris of Hérodiade (Théâtre Italien). The De Reszke brothers Jean (tenor) and Edouard (bass) sang in Hérodiade and both were engaged for Le Cid... The loyalty of the De Reszke brothers and Pol Plançon (Count of Gormas) ensured considerable success for Le Cid both in France and America, and it achieved 150 performances at the Opéra by 1919." Rodney Milnes in Grove Music Online. Kerst, born in 1906, was a French music critic.

         AN ELABORATE 1885 MARDI GRAS BALL INVITATION; Krewe of Rex Ivanhoe-themed New Orleans Mardi Gras invitation

      F. Appel, 1885 - This ornate invitation measures 12" x 13.5" unfolded. Folded the card appears to be a blue and gold striped medieval tournament tent. When all nine panels and pieces are unfolded, six multi-colored vignettes from Sir Walter Scott's novel, Ivanhoe, are revealed. The invitation is in very nice shape with only some minor wear along one fold and some of the edges. Invitation only, no envelope, admit card, or ducal proclamation. In nice shape; near invisible reinforcement to one of the tent-roof folds. See Schindler's Mardi Gras Treasures and "historicmardigras" on-line for more information. The online photos don't do this invitation justice. Founded in 1872, the Krew of Rex (officially The School of Design and also known as The Rex Organization or simply Rex) is one of the first New Orleans Mardi Gras krewes, and it is the oldest parading carnival krewe. Its presiding king, Rex, and queen are acknowledged as the King and Queen of the Carnival, and its colors, purple, green, and gold have been adopted as the Mardi Gras colors. Rex began parading in 1872 to welcome Grand Duke Alexis Romanov, the son of Czar Alexander II, to New Orleans and continued to hold the event annually in an effort to boost tourism for the city.

         HEINRICH KIEPERT ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT ALS.

      [s. l.] February 2, . 1885 - [2] folded sheet, ink on paper (Very Good, some minor folds) 14,5 x 11 cm (5.7 x 4.3 inches). A unique manuscript letter by a German geographer Heinrich Kiepert, dated February 2, 1885 includes corrections for a map of Lycia in Anatolia, Turkey, published later that year in Vienna. A handwritten letter by a German geographer and cartographer Heinrich Kiepert, addressed to unknown scientist in Vienna, includes his remarks and annotations to the map of Lycia, which was a result of the Austrian archaeological expedition to the region. Lycia is a geopolitical region in the south-west part of Anatolia, in Antalya in Turkey. The area is known for its numerous ancient cities and burial sites. In 1881-1882 an Austrian expedition of archaeologist and geographers made a new survey of archaeological sites of Lycia. According to the notes the expedition brought with them three Kiepert’s maps, which were by coincidence tossed overboard off coast the island Kekova. The expedition included the architect Georg Niemann, Eugen Petersen, Franz Studniczka, Emanuel Löwy, a photographer Wilhelm Burger, and Kiepert’s friend Felix von Luschan (1854-1924), who is also mentioned in the letter. Upon their return to Vienna, Kiepert was the main cartographer and adviser for presentation of their discoveries on a map. The letter probably accompanied a corrected and annotated map. In the letter Heinrich Kiepert mentions an archaeologist Alexander Christian Leopold Conze (1831 - 1914) sent him a map of Lycia, printed in the technique of zincography, because a sketch, sent to him before was too small. To it he added titles, symbols and corrections. He also decided to use for the title a version of the name Lykia, instead of Lycia and Cilicia. He also writes about different archaeological sites, known or not known before, explains his symbols for rock-cut graves (square), Hittite monuments (star), and border lines between different groups of monuments (broken line). The map with a title Lykia : nach den Ergebnissen der in den Jahren 1881 - 1882 ausgeführten österreichischen Expeditionen on two sheets was published by Gerold in Vienna later in the year 1885. The map is extremely rare on the market. A facsimile oft he map was published in 2005. Heinrich Kiepert: Foremost Authority on the Geography the Ottoman Empire - Heinrich Kiepert (1818 - 1899) was a German geographer and historian of unusual intellect and diversity of interests. Born in Berlin, he grew up in an affluent, culturally sophisticated family, mentored by leading academics and travelling widely. He studied history, geography and philology, with a focus on Greece and the Near East, at the Humboldt University of Berlin under the legendary co-founder of modern geography, Carl Ritter (1779 - 1759). He showed great talent as a cartographer and worked closely with a number of commercial mapmakers. His first major project was assisting Ritter in the production of his Atlas von Hellas und den hellenischen Kolonien (1840). Between 1841 and 1848 Kiepert made four trips to Ottoman Europe and Asia Minor, and become a world-renowned expert on Turkey. This led him to produce his own cartographic works concerning the Ottoman Empire, including the Karte des osmanischen Reiches in Asien (1844); the Karte von Klein-Asien (1854); the Specialkarte vom Westlichen Kleinasien (1890-2) and his posthumously-published, monumental Karte von Kleinasien meist nach noch nicht oder in kleinstem Massstabe veroffentlichten Aufnahmen in 24 Blatt (1902-6). Upon his return from the Near East, Kiepert became the head of the Geographisches Institut in Weimar and, in 1854, was appointed a full professor as the University of Berlin. He maintained a long association with the prominent Berlin map publisher Dietrich Reimer, who was responsible for issuing the present map. Kiepert was a remarkably adept editor of cartographic material, possessing an uncanny ability to select the best and most accurate information out of a variety of conflic
