        Zur Genealogie der Moral

      Leipzig: C. G. Naumann,, 1887. Octavo (215 x 143 mm). Contemporary deep purple half pebble-grain cloth, gilt lettered spine, marbled sides, drab terracotta-coloured endpapers. Binding a little shaken, spine sunned and rolled, a little wear to extremities, small portion of paper missing from back cover, general paper toning, one or two marginal pencillings and stains. First edition, Nietzsche's second privately-printed work of which 600 copies were produced. The Genealogy has generated more scholarly comments in the past thirty years than any other book that Nietzsche wrote. The book's structure is that of three sustained and interlocking essays. The first addresses the origins of our conceptions of "good" and "bad," as against those of "good" and "evil" and contains Nietzsche's famous analysis of master morality and slave morality (a topic he had first introduced in Beyond Good and Evil the previous year). The second essay traces the origin of a "bad conscience" ?- the phenomenon of the soul taking sides against itself ?- while the third and final essay attacks the Christian advocacy of ascetic ideals, even while recognizing that "almost everything we call 'higher culture' rests on the spiritualization of, and giving depth to, cruelty (against oneself)." Throughout, Nietzsche employs his "genealogical" method, which has proven to be so influential in the 20th century. With the publication of On the Genealogy of Morals, Nietzsche returned to the more familiar world of prose and completed the third phase of his writings, which had begun with the four poetic books of Thus Spoke Zarathustra and continued through the purely prose restatement of Beyond Good and Evil. To complete the cycle, Nietzsche offered an addendum to Beyond Good and Evil, conceived of as an illustration of how the principles of that book might actually be applied in specific cases. The verso of the original title page carried the explicit notice: "An addition to the last published Beyond Good and Evil which is meant as a supplement and a clarification"… The new book generally followed the format of the previous work, consisting of three essays, each of which was broken down into long, closely reasoned paragraph sections. Nietzsche maintained that the writing of Genealogy was completed in twenty days—between 10 July and 30 July 1887—but the correspondence with his publisher shows this to be something of an exaggeration. Certainly, two thirds of the book was in Naumann's hands by 30 July 1887, but the finished manuscript—which included the third essay—was not sent until almost a month later. In general, this was a period of great creativity and activity: Genealogy was written, proofed, and released simultaneous with the printing and publication of the Hymn to Life… Nietzsche sent Naumann the manuscript for a "small polemic" on 17 July 1887, the text of which he claimed was "in direct connection with Beyond which we published last year." He requested that the same page layout, type, and paper be used "so that this treatise will appear to be a continuation of Beyond on the outside as well." This first manuscript contained only the essay which contrasted the ideas of "Good and Evil" ("Gut und Böse") with those of "Good and Bad" ("Gut und Schlecht"). However, three days later Nietzsche telegraphed his publisher: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, please return the manuscript." Nietzsche told Gast he had decided to do this "not because of any dissatisfaction on my part, but because in the meantime the work had begun to grow and now there seems to be no end in sight." On 29 July, Nietzsche sent Naumann a revised copy of the manuscript which he had expanded to contain a second essay entitled "'Guilt', 'Bad Conscience,' and the Like" ("Schuld," "Schlechtes Gewissen" und Verwandtes). Once more he insisted that everything be kept the same—"the two books must look so much alike as to be actually confused with each other." The proofing process followed the standard procedure with Gast and Nietzsche both receiving copies of the correction sheets. On 14 August, Nietzsche reported to Naumann that he was happy with the speed of the printing and that the "rest of the manuscript, the third essay" would be arriving in three or four days. This third essay, entitled "What Is the Meaning of Ascetic Ideals?" (Was bedeuten asketische Ideale?), was not completed and mailed to the printer until 28 August 1887. (Schaberg, The Nietzsche Canon, pp. 149-151).

        Photographic print. OUTSTANDING SIGNED PORTRAIT OF THE FOUNDER OF SOE

      measuring 8.5 x 6.25 ins. (approx. 21.5 x 16.0 cms) printed in sepia and mounted in studio's presentation gatefold wallet with original tissue guard intact; in near fine state. SIGNED BY DALTON WITH HIS HOLOGRAPH INSCRIPTION AND SIGNATURE ACROSS LOWER RIGHT - HAND CORNER OF PORTRAIT AND MOUNT. The portrait was taken in the studio of Andrew Paterson of Inverness. Paterson was a highly successful artist - photographer whose services were sought over several decades by many leading political and commercial figures of the day. The Rt. Hon. Edward Hugh John Neale Dalton, later Baron Dalton (1887 - 1962), Labour politician and close friend of Winston Churchill, occupied several senior offices of state throughout his long career. During WWII he served as Minister of Economic Warfare and President of the Board of Trade, from 1945 - 47 as Chancellor of the Exchequer (when he nationalised the Bank of England), and from 1948 - 50 as Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. Dalton was born in Wales and educated at Eton, King's College Cambridge, the London School of Economics (LSE) and the University of London. During WWI he served as a lieutenant in France and Italy, compiling 'With British Guns in Italy' as a record of his experiences. Although a staunch Labour party member he was nevertheless a fervent supporter of Churchill during the crisis of 1940 and strongly opposed to any compromise peace as urged by Halifax and other conservatives. In his wartime coalition Churchill appointed Dalton Minister of Economic Warfare. Following Churchill's well - known instruction 'to set Europe ablaze' Dalton founded the Special Operations Executive (SOE) and was subsequently a co - founder of the Political Warfare Executive (PWE). After the surprise Labour victory in 1945 Dalton was seen (alongside Attlee, Bevin, Morrison and Cripps) as one of the 'big five' of the new administration. In 1948 he was appointed Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and in 1950 Minister of Town and Country Planning. He retired from government after the general election of 1951 and was created a life peer as Baron Dalton on 1960. Items signed by Dalton are now very rare. His papers and diaries are held at the London School of Economics. A SCARCE AND SPLENDID SIGNED PORTRAIT IDEAL FOR PRESENTATION

Hardcover, bound in contemporary cloth and marbled boards, shelf tickets to spine, old institutional stamps to title, some foxing. In a very good condition. ~ First edition. Still a much sought-after standard work on the subject: "... voor de meest gedetailleerde moderne studie over het beleg van Oostende nog steeds aangewezen zijn op het in 1887 verschenen werk van C. A. van Sypesteyn, 'Het merkwaardig beleg van Ostende'. Merkwaardig genoeg verwijt Simoni juist Van Sypesteyn gebrekkige kennis van boekgeschiedenis omdat het hem niet lukte te achterhalen wie de auteur van de Belägerung was. Simoni heeft dat raadsel opgelost, maar verder is haar boek slechts een aanvulling op Van Sypesteyn." - Olaf van Nimwegen in a review of "The Ostend Story" by A. Simoni (Antwerp, 2003). ~ Cornelius Ascanius van Sypesteyn (1823-1892), artillery lieutenant, orrespondent, editor, cartographer..

Stevens was the first person to circle the globe on a bicycle. He rode a black Columbia 50-inch 'Ordinary' built by the Pope Manufacturing Company of Chicago, and carried only spare socks, shirt, raincoat (which he also used as a tent), and revolver in a small handlebar bag. Stevens left San Francisco on 22 April of 1884 and crossed the United States, arriving in New York on 4 August. He booked passage to England and then ferried to the continent and cycled across Europe and most of Asia, although he had to revert to boat travel on occasion when refused land passage by several governments. Stevens completed the cycling portion of his trip in Japan on 17 December 1886 after peddling more than 13,500 miles, and then sailed to San Francisco the following month. Unusual to find a matching set in condition this nice. As of 2015, one matched set is in the trade and none have been sold at auction per ABPC or the Rare Book Hub (Americana Exchange).

        1887 Emile Zola Discusses House Renovations ALS

      1887 - Having purchased a small house in Medan in 1878, Emile Zola spent many years expanding it into a luxurious villa. It became a gathering place for the French artistic and literary elite. In this two-page letter in French, Zola seems to be writing to his architect and requests drawings for a renovation similar to the little house next to the 13th century cathedral. Written on two 8" x 5" sheets that were at one time joined. Zola (1840-1902), the foremost French proponent of literary naturalism, is remembered for his twenty novels concerning the Rougon Macquart family including Nana and Germinal and his direct involvement in the Dreyfus affair. Condition: Fold lines, light stain on verso of page 2 with minimal bleedthrough, remnants of hinging on verso, generally very good with above faults listed for accuracy sake only.

      Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Company. 1887. First. First edition. Pictorial mustard yellow cloth stamped in red and black. Front hinge neatly repaired, some modest loss of cloth and a small glue remnant at the crown, overall a near very good copy with the bookplate of notable poet Edmund Clarence Stedman on the front pastedown and Agnes Neustadt's decorative bookplate (illustrated by Frederick Spenceley) on the front fly. Penciled name ("Stedman", probably in his hand on the titlepage. Tipped-in is a three page (three pages of a fold leaf) Autograph Letter Signed by Royce to Stedman dated May 8, 1890. The letter begs forgiveness for his failure to write earlier, thanking Stedman for a dinner given in his honor at the Author's Club, and asking Stedman to convey to the Board of the Club that he would like to gain out-of-town membership in the Club. Josiah Royce, born in Grass Valley, California, was best known as one of the great American philosophers, whose work at Harvard also had a profound effect on the philosophy of logic as it influenced mathematics. He was unusual among American philosophers for his interest and writings on history, particularly on his birth state of California, from whence this novel was inspired. Shortly after publishing this novel he had a nervous breakdown requiring him to take a leave of absence from his academic duties, and indeed in the letter he references the pressures of those duties. .

En 1874, Edmond de Goncourt est témoin de son mariage avec Marguerite Cottin, fille d'Auguste Cottin qui lui ouvrira les portes des archives de la famille impériale. Historien-collectionneur, il est élu à l'Académie française le 18 juin 1903. Leur correspondance publiée dans les Cahiers Jules et Edmond de Goncourt éclaire la nature de leur relation. Edmond conseille le jeune homme et l'oriente vers la littérature. Frédéric Masson, bibliophile averti, renseigne Edmond sur sa bibliothèque, répond aux demandes d'informations des frères Goncourt et participe à la préparation des ouvrages historiques d'Edmond ainsi qu'à l'enrichissement de ses rééditions.Goncourt décrit, en 1870, dans le tome IV du Journal, le jeune Frédéric Masson âgé de 23 ans: "Ce soir, je rencontre le jeune Frédéric Masson, enterré dans sa capote de mobile. Lui, qui datait les lettres qu'il m'écrivait du collège, des brumaire et des messidor du calendrier républicain, je le trouve fort dégrisé de la république, des républicains, des soldats démocrates. Il se plaint que, lorsqu'il marchait avec Goubie en avant, ses frères n'emboîtaient point le pas. Et de sa mauvaise humeur contre le présent, un peu remonte à 89, et amène une baisse sensible de son lyrique enthousiasme d'autrefois pour la première république. Il est un symptôme. Je suis persuadé que beaucoup de jeunes gens ayant en eux-mêmes semblablement à Masson un grain d'exaltation révolutionnaire, sont en train de devenir des réactionnaires." Rare et très bel ensemble, en reliure uniforme de l'époque, complet en 9 volumes et enrichi d'importants envois autographes d'Edmond de Goncourt sur chacun des volumes.

        Sämtliche Werke in chronologischer Reihenfolge hrsg. von Karl Kehrbach und Otto Flügel.

      Langensalza, 1887-1912.. 19 Bde. Gr.-8vo. (Nachdruck, Aalen 1964). Mit 4 Bildnissen Herbarts. Originale graue Verlagsleinenbände. (St.a.Vorsätzen, sonst sauber und beinahe neuwertiger Zustand!).. Herbart (1776-1841), deutscher Philosoph, Psychologe und Pädagoge, war ab 1805 Professor für Philosophie in Göttingen und ab 1809 in Königsberg, wo er ein pädagogisches Seminar gründete. Sein Wunsch, nach Hegels Tod einen Ruf nach Berlin zu erhalten, erfüllte sich nicht, so kehrte er 1833 nach Göttingen zurück. Herbarts Philosophie war stark von Kant beeinflusst, auch in der Pädagogik war die sittliche Selbstbestimmung des Menschen das erstrebte Erziehungsziel. Gerade für die heutige Zeit kann Herbart durchaus Impulse setzen, so seine Vorstellungen über den Unterricht, den er als einen polaren Rhythmus von Ein- und Ausatmen ansah. Vertiefung und Besinnung ist das Unterrichtsziel, dahinter sah er die Bildung des sittlich denkenden und handelnden Menschen.

      Disegno ad inchiostro di china e pastello azzurro su cartoncino tipo Bristol cm. 24,5x31,5 firmato in basso a destra. Titolo Son Role e didascalia. Enzo Manfredini nacque a Modena il 30 giugno 1887 e perseguì gli studi classici; alla vigilia della laurea a Torino abbandonò l?idea della professione e si stabilì dietro consiglio di Marinetti a Parigi. Nel 1913 la capitale francese aveva un Atelier Manfredini aperto a ?publicitè, dessins, affiches, illustrations?. Impossibile elencare i quotidiani e i periodici francesi che presentarono suoi disegni; difficile oggi trovare le due raccolte che egli pubblicò fra il 1917 e il 1918, l?una edita da Andrea Salmon, l?altra da Andrea Vauxcelles. Quanto invece possiamo testimoniare è la grande rilevanza che la cultura e la critica francese, inglese e spagnola diedero alla sua attività caricaturale e la considerazione che per lui ebbero quale innovatore di stile.

      . Breslau, Hermann Haertel, 1887. 4to. xvi, 232 pp., over 4,000 steel engravings grouped in unnumbered plates and scattered over the text pages. Separate 68 pp. price list in rear pocket. Original printed cloth.l A wonderful catalogue of thousands of surgical instruments and other medical tools, including the separately published price-list. This book illustrates the "state of the art" medical equipment of the year 1887, made by one of the foremost factories. Therefore, it was likely to be used extensively, and it is exceptional to see a copy in such pristine condition. Founded in 1819, the factory probably did not survive WWII. Inscribed by both Hermann and his brother and companion Georg Haertel on the front free endpaper, a dedication to the medical doctor, Karl Theodor, Duke in Bavaria (1839-1909), who in 1895 founded the Augenklinik Herzog Carl Theodor (the Duke Charles Theodore Eye Clinic) in Munich. The clinic in the Nymphenburger Strasse remains one of the most respected eye clinics in Bavaria to date. Between 1895 and 1909 Carl Theodor personally carried out more than 5,000 cataract operations as well as treating countless other eye disorders (Wikipedia). Spine foot slightly bumped, otherwise a fine clean copy..

        The Brownies: Their Book

      xii+144 pages Illustrated throughout. Quarto (10 3/4" x 8 1/2") bound in original glazed pictorial quarter morocco slipcase. boards in original pictorial jacket with . First edition, first state, with the De Vinne Press seal immediately below the copyright notice.The Brownies is a series of publications by Canadian illustrator and author Palmer Cox, based on names and elements from English traditional mythology and Scottish stories told to Cox by his grandmother. Illustrations with verse aimed at children, The Brownies was published in magazines and books during the late 19th century and early 20th century. Not unlike fairies and goblins, Brownies are imaginary little sprites, who are supposed to delight in harmless pranks and helpful deeds. Never allowing themselves to be seen by mortal eyes, they are male, drawn to represent many professions and nationalities, all mischievous members of the fairy world whose principal attribute is helping with chores while a family sleeps. The Brownie characters became famous in their day, and at the peak of their popularity were a pioneering name brand within merchandising. The first appearances of Brownie characters in a print publication took place in 1879, but not until the February, 1881 issue of Wide Awake magazine were the creatures printed in their final form. The first proper story, The Brownies' Ride, appeared in the February 1883 issue of the children's periodical St. Nicholas Magazine. Published in 1899, The Brownies Abroad is considered the first Brownie comic strip, though it didn't utilize speech balloons until the publication The Brownie Clown of Brownie Town of 1908. From 1903, The Browniesappeared as a newspaper Sunday strip for several years. The first compilation, The Brownies, Their Book, was published in 1887, followed by 16 books in the series until the last in 1918.Condition:Rubbing to board and spine extremities; marginal dampstaining through majority of leaves, ownership inscription. Dust jacket, dampstaining, some wrinkling and creasing, few small chips a better than good copy in scarce like jacket.

        Collection of 11 autograph letters and 2 visiting cards signed variously "Cécile," "C. Chaminade," or "C. Carbonel-Chaminade"

      An interesting collection dating from 1887 to after 1901 (the year of Chaminade's marriage), addressed to her mentor, the composer Emmanuel Chabrier (1841-1894); the noted poet Eugène Manuel (1823-1901; and various other musicians with whom Chaminade collaborated. The letters offer an intriguing glimpse into Chaminade's active musical life, which included successful concert tours both in her native France and abroad, and her endearing admiration for Chabrier. Chaminade also mentions several of her own compositions, including the Piano Trio, op. 34 (1887) and Viatique (1895) Octavo and 12mo. In French (with translation). AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED 1) To Emmanuel Chabrier signed "C. Chaminade." 2 pp. Ca. 88 x 114 mm. Dated Le Vésinet, Friday [1887]. In purple ink on gray cardstock. A charming letter from the young composer to her older colleague and mentor. Chaminade and (presumably) her family spoke of Chabrier only yesterday. Costallat, Chabrier's publisher, has assured them about his score. She can't wait to see him to tell him how enthusiastic she is about his latest opera, Le roi malgré lui. "I will soon know it by heart," she emphatically declares. Her family sends Chabrier and his wife their kindest regards, and Chaminade herself "all affection and admiration from your little colleague."

Chaminade." 2 pp. Ca. 90 x 116 mm. Dated Le Vésinet, Saturday [ca. 1895]. In black ink on dark ivory cardstock. Chaminade entreats Manuel to allow her to publish Viatique, "your beautiful poetry that I set to music... I know Fauré also wrote it, but I hope that you did not give him exclusive rights, and that you will be willing to grant them to me as well..." Signature and final sentiment written over previous text along right edge of verso; remnants of former mount and small stain not affecting text; several small smudges to recto. 3) To Eugène Manuel signed "C.

It has been almost "two years since Viatique was set to music, and you are going to find me unforgivable." Chaminade had hoped to send Manuel her composition, but she has been travelling almost ceaselessly and forgot. She will have Enoch, her publisher, send some copies "of our mélodie," which requires "a large and penetrating voice" and which enjoyed "a great success" in Reims, all the more because of the "poetry, which captured the audience." Creased at folds; occasional light smudging affecting legibility of one word ("et"; p. 1); very light soiling and staining to edges; minor remnant of adhesive to upper right edge of final page not affecting text. 4) To "Cher Monsieur" signed "C.

Chaminade" 4 pp. of a bifolium. Ca. 181 x 116 mm. Dated Le Vésinet, Sunday. In black ink on cream paper.

She asks him for "a song number," and notes that she can suggest several good ones that have already been sung. She proposes 7 choristers for reinforcement. She will send a photograph and 2 lines of music in her hand, and is "delighted to be counted among [his] friends." Creased at folds with several short tears and small repairs not affecting text; occasional light wear, smudging, and blotting, affecting several words; minor remnants of adhesive to lower right corner of final page. 7) To "Monsieur" signed "C.

Final blank page slightly stained; creased at folds; remnants of adhesive to right edge; annotations in pencil partially erased. 9) To "Cher Monsieur" signed "C. Carbonel-Chaminade." 3 pp. of a bifolium. Ca. 210 x 135 mm. Dated [Paris,] Tuesday evening. In purple crayon on lightweight cream paper.
