        Das Türkenvolk in seinen ethnologischen und ethnographischen Beziehungen geschildert.

      Leipzig, Brockhaus, 1885 - XII, 638 S., 1 Bl. (Anzeige). 2 Tafeln in Xylographie. Erste Ausgabe dieser auf Basis des Turanismus bzw. Panturismus stehenden wissenschaftlichen Beschreibung der Turkvölker, selten. - Behandelt werden die sibririschen Turkvölker (Darunter besonders die Jakuten), die mittelasiatischen Turkvölker (Uiguren, Kirgisen usw.), die "Wolga-Türken" (Tartaren, Tschuwaschen usw.), "Pontus-Türken" (besonders die Krim-Tartaren) und "West-Türken" (Azerbaidschaner und Osmanen). - "Arminus [Hermann] Vambery (1832 - 1913) was especially attracted by the literature and culture of Turkey, and in 1854 he was enabled, through the assistance of Baron Joseph Eötvös, to go to Constantinople. There he became a private tutor, and thus entered the household of usain Da`im Pasha, later becoming private secretary to Fuad Pasha. About this time he was elected a corresponding member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in recognition of his translations of Turkish historians. Returning to Budapest in 1861, he received a stipend of a thousand florins from the academy, and in the fall of the same year, disguised as a Sunnite dervish, and under the name of Rashid Effendi, he set out from Constantinople. His route lay from Trebizond to Teheran, via Erzerum, Tabriz, Zenjan, and Kazvin. He then went to Shiraz, through Ispahan, and in June, 1863, he reached Khiva, whence he went by way of Bokhara and Samarcand to Herat, returning through Meshed to Teheran and Trebizond. This was the first journey of its kind undertaken by a European; and since it was necessary to avoid suspicion, Vámbéry could not take even fragmentary notes, except by stealth. He returned to Europe in 1864, and received in the next year the appointment of professor of Oriental languages in the University of Budapest, retiring therefrom in 1905. Vámbéry became known also as a publicist, zealously defending the English policy in the East as against that of the Russians" (Jewish Encyclopedia). - Gebräunt. - *** Matthäus TRUPPE * Stubenberggasse 7 * A-8010 GRAZ *** - Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1000 Gr.-8°.

        Erklärung der Regel des hl. Vaters Benedikt.

      Um 1885/1890. - 2 Bände. 4° (27.3 x 21.5 cm). 1 Bl., 191 SS. u. 161 unpag. Bll. Handschrift in deutscher Kurrent (regelmässiger Schriftzug von geübter Hand; Tinte, Spitzfeder) in Bleistift-Satzspiegel und -Linierung a. teilw. unterschiedlichem Papier (gestrichen; grösstenteils weiss, partiell chamois-getönt). HLdr.-Handeinbände d.Zt. (schwarz; unterschiedlich min. bestossen u. etwas berieben) mit vergold. Rückentitel u. Ln.-Deckelbezug (lamin., feine Galuchatstruktur). Seiten unterschiedlich etwas stockfleckig. Gesamthaft weitgehend sauberes, recht gutes Exemplar (Studienobjekt) / UNIKAT. Bd. 2 im Titel bez.: Fr. Athanas. - Einige Titel- u. Textstellen in Latein. - Mit grösster Wahrscheinlichkeit geschrieben von P. Athanas Staub (Stans NW 1864-1955) von Menzingen, Kt. Zug. Profess 1885, Priester 1891. Professor und Ehrendoktor (Dr. h.c.) der Theologie, 1925 Rektor des Kollegiums S. Anselm in Rom (Professbuch Einsiedeln Nr. 730). Da er sich noch Frater nennt, ist es denkbar, dass sich Athanas Staub, ev. auf Geheiss hin, in der Zeit zwischen Profess und Priesterweihe eingehend mit der Ordensregel befasste. Es ist nicht anzunehmen, dass diese Schrift für eine Veröffentlichung gedacht war, da die auch damals gängigen Zitierregeln kaum oder gar nicht beachtet wurden. Bibliographische Hinweise sind hingegen in Marginalien beigefügt. - Vorangestellt ist ein Kapitel: Kurze Anleitung zur Betrachtung und zu einem t[ä]gl[i]ch zu übenden Stundengebet (14 SS.), p. 15 ist der kalligraphisch gestaltete Titel zur eigentlichen Erklärung, die mit einem vier Abschnitte umfassenden Vorwort beginnt (Text pp. 17-65). Es folgt eine Zusammenstellung bibliographischer Hinweise auf relevante Autoren und deren Werke (pp. 66-70). Aufgeführt werden u.a. Benedict Haeften, Edmond Martènes, Augustin Calmet, Johannes Trithemius, Abt de Rancé, Peter Lechner, aber auch Paul Warnefried, Dunstan von Canterbury, Petrus Diaconus und Hugo Minardus. Über P. Karl Brandes sagt P. Athanas: ?hat nach alten Quellen, Haeften und Martène[s], besonders aber [.] von Joseph Mège, Paris 1687, seine Erklärung [.] verfasst. Sie zeichnet sich durch schöne Sprache und vortreffliche Reflexionen [.] aus.? (p. 61). - Die eigentliche Erklärung folgt den in zwölf Kapitel zusammengefassten Regelbestimmungen - von Coenobium und Seminarium bis Valetudinarium und Dormitorium - und umfasst ab p. 75 den ganzen restlichen Text, der mit einem ?Schlusscapitel? schliesst. - Wie weit es sich bei der Regelerklärung durch P. Athanas um eine eigenständige Leistung handelt, kann hier nicht verbindlich gewürdigt werden. Die einschlägige Literatur von der Antike bis in seine Zeit war ihm bekannt; man kann jedoch nicht sagen, dass er lediglich kompilierte. Eine vielleicht inspirierende Quelle könnte der Titel von P. Karl Brandes: Erklärung der Regel (etc., Einsiedeln 1857) gewesen sein. So beginnt in Bd. I das Vorwort mit einem etwas modifizierten, jedoch praktisch gleichlautenden Zitat aus dessen Erklärung (ohne jedoch als solches gekennzeichnet zu sein): ?Eine Gesetzgebung, die der Geist des Evangeliums durchweht, muß sich vor anderen dadurch auszeichnen, daß sie nicht blos befiehlt, sondern auch zu belehren und zu überzeugen trachtet.? (etc.; Brandes op. cit. p. 5). Unter Punkt 2 fährt P. Athanas fort: ?Wir wollen nun dieses herrliche Vorwort, durch welches wir [.] in das wundervoll geordnete Gebäude der hl. Regel selbst eingeführt werden, aufmerksam durchlesen und einläßlicher zu erklären suchen.? (p. 17). - Provenienz: Ausgeschiedenes Exemplar der Stiftsbibliothek Einsiedeln (o.

        Das Kapital. Kritik der politischen Oekonomie.

      Hamburg: Otto Meissner,, 1885. Zweiter Band. Buch II: Der Cirkulationsprocess des Kapitals. Herausgeben von Friedrich Engels. Octavo (213 x 133 mm), pp. xxvii, [1], 526 + imprint leaf. Recent half green morocco and marbled boards, spine ruled and decorated gilt in compartments, direct lettered gilt, marbled endpapers. German school library stamp and shelf number on title page. Lower margin with small damp mark to final few leaves; a very good copy. First edition of the second volume of Das Kapital, edited from Marx's manuscripts by Friedrich Engels. "Marx himself modestly described Das Kapital as a continuation of his Zur Kritik de politischen Oekonomie, 1859. It was in fact the summation of his quarter of a century's economic studies, mostly in the Reading Room of the British Museum. The Athenaeum reviewer of the first English translation (1887) later wrote: 'Under the guise of a critical analysis of capital, Karl Marx's work is principally a polemic against capitalists and the capitalist mode of production, and it is this polemical tone which is its chief charm'. The historical-polemical passages, with their formidable documentation from British official sources, have remained memorable; and, as Marx (a chronic furunculosis victim) wrote to Engels while the volume was still in the press, 'I hope the bourgeoisie will remember my carbuncles all the rest of their lives' ?" (PMM). "The history of the twentieth century is Marx's legacy. Stalin, Mao, Che, Castro?the icons and monsters of the modern age have all presented themselves as his heirs. Whether he would recognise them as such is quite another matter ? Nevertheless, within one hundred years of his death half the world's population was ruled by governments that professed Marxism to be their guiding faith. His ideas have transformed the study of economics, history, geography, sociology and literature. Not since Jesus Christ has an obscure pauper inspired such global devotion?or been so calamitously misinterpreted." (Francis Wheen, in his introduction to Karl Marx, 1999).

        Alastor; or, the Spirit of Solitude: and Other Poems

      London: Reeves and Turner, and B. Dobell,, 1885. A facsimile reprint of the original edition, first published in 1816. Octavo. Original tan buckram, paper title label to spine. Very slight rubbing to ends and corners, front hinge just starting at the ends, internally fresh and uncut, withal an excellent copy. First edition thus, signed by Bertram Dobell on the front free endpaper (conceivably denoting this as his retained copy), one of the scarce 50 copies on Whatman's Hand-made Paper from a limited edition restricted to 404 copies (4 were on vellum, and 350 copies were on toned paper). This facsimile was issued as number 3 in the second series of the publications of The Shelley Society, at the initiative of literary scholar and bookseller Bertram Dobell (1842-1914). Alastor was Shelley's first mature work, which drew from Leigh Hunt, then a stranger to him, the first public recognition of Shelley's gifts as "a very striking and original thinker". Partly inspired by a boat trip up the Thames taken by Shelley, Mary, Peacock and Charles Clairmont, and partly by Shelley's complex reaction to Wordsworth, the poem, "in its brooding introspection, is a world away from the explicit radicalism of Queen Mab. Alastor is at some level an elegy for Shelley's failed marriage with Harriet" (ODNB). The volume also contains much revised versions of the first two cantos of Queen Mab, under the title 'The Daemon of the World', along with another revised section (entitled 'Superstition') from canto 6. The book was apparently rare as early as 1824: Mary Shelley, in her preface to Posthumous Poems, explained, "I have added a reprint of 'Alastor, or the Spirit of Solitude': the difficulty with which a copy can be obtained is the cause of its republication" - Dobell in his prefatory matter here reasserts this point, and continues: "A copy of the original edition now fetches, on the rare occasions of its appearance in the auction room, from eight to ten pounds. This, of course, is a prohibitive price to all but wealthy collectors; and it seems reasonable to suppose, therefore, that those Shelleyites whose means are limited will not neglect the present opportunity of acquiring what is practically and substantially an original edition, at an almost nominal price.

      Philadelphia: Merrihew Print, J. Spencer Smith, Chestnut Street, circa 1882, 1885. Original circus playbill measuring 395 x 142 mm, printed on both sides, split at central fold, very good condition. Scarce and highly ephemeral playbill from the golden age of the Barnum and Bailey circus, featuring woodblocks of P.T. Barnum and Jumbo, as well as the Roman hippodrome races.A collision of different typefaces amidst four woodblocks, the playbill was printed locally to advertise the week of shows commencing 30 April. Jumbo was purchased from the London Zoo in 1882 and Barnum's partnership with fellow showman James Bailey ended in 1885, providing a three-year timeframe for the printing of this playbill (the three owners - Barnum, Bailey and Hutchinson - are clearly indicated).And what a spectacle it must have been, filling the broadmeadow below Dickinson street in Philadelphia. In addition to Jumbo the elephant, the playbill boasts a further another 29 trained elephants and no less than 10 giraffes. In fact, the circus boasted an entire zoological exhibition within its boundaries, here spruiked as "2 Mighty Menageries Containing every notable Wild Beast, Bird and Reptile known to Naturalists".The reverse of the handbill boasts the brilliant street parade, Roman hippodrome races and over 1000 rare and curious freaks. Of special interest is an "ethnological" exhibit including so called Aztecs, the last of the Montezumas, a wild girl, giants and midgets, and the wild man of Borneo. This bill proclaims the exorbitant costs of staging the circus, compared to the relatively modest admission price of 50 cents for adults and children half price.

        Personal Memoirs of U S Grant in 2 Volumes Complete

      New York::: Charles L. Webster & Company,,, 1885, 1886.. . A Near Fine tight set in green cloth bindings stamped in gold on the spine and front covers. This set is complete with the facsimile letter of Grant's original terms for Lee's surrender tipped in that is often missing. Mark Twain was the publisher of this monumental memoir as well as its editor and proof reader. Twain was extremely fond of and a close friend of Grant and encouraged the President and war hero to write his memoirs. Grant was dying of throat cancer but completed his two volume opus, dictating the second volume to a secretary. Twain noted in a letter to his daughter that the manuscript was not even set yet and 20,000 sets had been ordered from only two states. "Wait till you hear from the other 37." Grant finished his memoirs on July 18, 1885 and died five days later on July 23rd. Following his death, advance orders of the memoirs reached 300,000 sets realizing close to $450,000 for his family which was otherwise penniless. In a 1992 New York Times book review, General Schwarzkopf is quoted as using Grant's two-volume work as his model, calling it the finest military history of the Civil War..

        Notiz über die Spectrallinien des Wasserstoffs. WITH: Zweite Notiz über die Spectrallinien des Wasserstoffs

      1st Edition Basel: H. George's Verlag, 1885. FIRST PRINTING IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Balmer's two papers providing the formula for describing the spectral lines of hydrogen; of profound influence for Niels Bohr and the beginnings of quantum theory. "Although trained as a mathematician and working as a mathematics teacher, Balmer became interested in spectroscopy, which was very much at the cutting edge of scientific research at the time, and was encouraged by colleagues at Basle University to try to find an explanation for the way lines in a spectrum are distributed--at first sight, in a random pattern. Although many other scientists had tried and failed to find some order in these patters, in 1884, in his sixtieth year, Balmer succeeded in finding an equation that not only reproduced the relationship between the four bright lines known in the spectrum of hydrogen at the time, but also predicted the existence of a fifth line, at the edge of visibility, that was soon detected. The formula was published in 1885, the year Niels Bohr was born."The five lines became known as the Balmer series... Although Balmer's results were entirely empirical, based on the mathematical relationships alone with no attempt to find their underlying physical cause, this discovery that there was a mathematical order in the pattern of spectral lines was an important step towards developing an understanding of the spectrum in quantum terms" (Gribbin, Q is for Quantum). ??"Shortly after 7 February [1913] Bohr heard of the Balmer formula. By 6 March he had completed a paper containing its interpretation. That event marks the beginning of the quantum theory of atomic structure" (Pais, Niels Bohr's Times).IN: Verhandlungen der Naturforschenden Gesellschaft in Basel, vol. 7, pp. 548-560; 750-752. Basel: H. George's Verlag, 1885. Octavo, original yellow printed wrappers, uncut and largely unopened; custom box. Stamp on front wrapper. Wrappers chipped around edges, front wrapper neatly re-attached and gatherings archivally stabilized at spine. SCARCE, particularly in original wrappers. Good.

        A Walk in Sydney Streets on the Shady Side. 20 Sketches...

      Sydney: The Author, 1885. Folio, lithographic dedication, title and envoi, and 20 lithographs;original publisher's half morocco. One of the rarer nineteenth-century illustrated Australian books in a handsome Sydney binding by W.E. Smith. A journalist, Whitelocke was born in London in 1861. It is not clear when he arrived in Australia but he entered journalism in the 1880s and was editor of the Barrier Miner and the National Advocate; he also wrote for the Sydney Mail and other papers. His social sympathies and his often satirically observant eye are obvious from this series of Mayhewesque images of Sydney city life.As Whitelocke himself comments in the advertisement to the work, the idea was prompted by a Sydney Morning Herald review of his 24 original sketches from the works of Charles Dickens (1882): the editors applauded the sketches, but openly wondered why the artist did not stay closer to home, as 'Sydney streets afford more subjects for a book of sketches than any work of Dickens'. Whitelocke acknowledged the value of such a project, and the resulting lithographs show that he was evidently drawn to the everyday bustle of the city, producing a fascinating series of social documents. His concern is with everyday life, whether it is an image of a Chinese vegetable seller, news-boys, orators in the park or street musicians (playing a harp, no less). There is a moralising tone to much of the letterpress, which belies the evident empathy and compassion of the images. Some scattered spotting, expertly rebacked, edges bumped but a good copy.

      Tipografia Poliglotta - Tip. Pontif. S. Giuseppe, 1885. 12 volumi in-4° (345x255mm), pp. XIV, 216; 219; 220; 245; 213; 200; 227; 221; 236; 214; 198; 287; brossura editoriale con titolo entro bordura ornamentale. 288 incisioni xilografiche n.t. e f.t., incise da Canedi, raffiguranti vedute, tribù locali, costumi, villaggi, utensili. Due carte geografiche a colori in fine del IV volume disegnate e incise sotto la direzione di Antoine d'Abbadie a Parigi nel 1886. Frontespizi con titolo entro ricchissima bordura ornata e figurata su legno. Capilettera, testatine e finalini incisi. Testo inquadrato da doppia filettatura. Ritratto di Leone XIII all'antiporta del I vol. e un ritratto del Massaja medesimo f.t. al I vol. Dedicatoria a Leone XIII. Abrasioni marginali di poco conto alle ultime pp. del decimo vol. Perfetto esemplare in barbe, in parte intonso e serbato entro velina. Prima edizione, completa divenuta rara e ricercata già all'inizio del secolo XX, impressa simultaneamente a Roma e a Milano, della celeberrima relazione del Massaja sulle sue più che trentennali missioni evangelizzatrici africane, il più ampio testo ottocentesco sull'Etiopia e l'Abissinia, eccezionale miniera di informazioni etnografiche e topografiche sull'Africa Orientale. Il Massaja nacque, con il nome di Lorenzo Antonio, nel 1809 nella frazione La Braja di Piovà d'Asti, ora Piovà Massaja. Seminarista ad Asti, indossò il saio di frate cappuccino alla Madonna di Campagna di Torino, cambiando il nome di battesimo in quello del fratello Guglielmo, sacerdote. Fu ordinato sacerdote a Vercelli nel 1832 ed ebbe la direzione spirituale dell'Ospedale Mauriziano di Torino (1834-36) che gli consentì di apprendere preziose nozioni elementari di medicina e chirurgia. Nel 1846 Gregorio XVI istituí il Vicariato Apostolico dei Galla e chiamò a reggerlo come vescovo titolare di Cassia proprio il Massaja, che venne consacrato in S. Carlo al Corso in Roma il 24 maggio dello stesso anno. Lasciò l'Italia il 4 giugno 1846 e, in Abissinia, compose un catechismo e pubblicò la prima grammatica della lingua galla. Fondò fra l'altro le importanti missioni di Fekerié-Ghemb e Finfinni, poi elevata a capitale di tutta l'Etiopia con il nome di Addis-Abeba nel 1889. In Abissinia istitui' la profilassi contro malattie endemiche, particolarmente contro il vaiolo, per cui fu acclamato "Padre del Fantatà", nome autoctono per designare l'affezione vaiolosa, lotto' per l'abolizione della schiavitú, creò dei centri di accoglienza per venire incontro alle popolazioni tormentate dalle continue guerre, tento' azioni mediatrici fra popolazioni rivali e si fece promotore di missioni diplomatiche e scientifiche fino ad essere nominato dal governo italiano dell'epoca Ministro Plenipotenziario nel trattato d'amicizia e commercio stipulato tra l'Italia e lo Stato dello Scioa nel 1879. Fu nominato arcivescovo di Stauropoli nel 1881 e cardinale il 10 novembre 1884. Si spense a San Giorgio a Cremano. in provincia di Napoli, il 6 agosto 1889. Su invito dello stesso pontefice Leone XIII stese l'importantissima relazione contenuta nei presenti volumi, testimonianza altamente significativa non solo dei progressi missionari in terra abissina (a tal proposito, è fuor di dubbio che l'opera è il più cospicuo testo della missiologia italiana ottocentesca), ma, altresì, della situazione antropologica, politica ed economica di quelle terre nel corso del secolo decimonono. "Tra il 1880 e il 1886, pur consapevole degli scarsi strumenti letterari di cui poteva disporre, abituato per oltre un trentennio a esprimersi in forme idiomatiche filologicamente estranee ai modelli occidentali, senza il supporto di documentazione scritta, il Massaja compose un'opera complessa, sotto molti aspetti frammentaria e di difficile lettura, ma capace di tratteggiare un affresco esemplare della vita culturale, religiosa, politica e sociale dell'Etiopia ottocentesca; un'opera che avrebbe conosciuto una straordinaria fortuna in Italia e in Europa" (Mauro Forno in D.B.I., LXXI, 2008). Hill, 234. Henze, III, 389. Petermanns Mitteilungen, 1888, S.189 ff. CLIO, IV, p. 2906. Ezio Orefice in Dizionario Bompiani delle Opere, IV, 719: "Questo suo libro rimane a testimoniare un'impresa in cui non si sa se più ammirare il missionario e l'esploratore".
