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. .

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.

        Enzo Manfredini. 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.

      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.

Between 1895 and 1909 Carl Theodor personally carried out more than 5,000 cataract operations as well as treating countless other eye disorders (Wikipedia).

        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. Quarter morocco slipcase with rubbing to raised spine bands else very good to fine.

        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.

        A Yachtsman's Scrap Book, or the Ups and Downs of Yacht Racing. Edited by

      New York: Brentano Brothers, 1887 - Octavo. Original olive green pebble-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine and upper board, decorative bands in blind to both boards, sepia floral endpapers. A little rubbed, hinges professionally restored, light marginal toning, a very good copy. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Captain Robert Fish, 4 engraved double-page plates. First edition. This copy inscribed on the first blank; "Colonel John Hay with the compliments of the editor, J.F. Loubat, New York, May 31st 1887." Uncommon early yachting memoir, just 10 copies in the US listed on OCLC, and a single copy in Europe in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Loubat was the son of Alphonse Loubat, a French entrepreneur who was prominent in developing urban transport systems in both New York and Paris. He was born in New York, 1831, but studied at the University of Paris, receiving a doctorate in law, emphasizing his sense of dual nationality by going on to join the American diplomatic service, participating in the 1866 mission to Russia led by the Assistant Secretary of State for the Navy, Gustavus Fox. He was involved in the organization of the 1867 World Exposition, and contributed to the founding of the Trocadero Museum, later the Musée de l'Homme. In the city of his birth he donated property to Columbia University, a donation which was key in the early expansion and development of the faculty. He died in Paris in 1927. He was also highly influential in the development of yachting in America and Europe. In 1874, his schooner Enchantress, designed by Robert Fish and originally owned by George Lorillard, competed against the Herreshoff-built Faustine, and several English yachts in a race from Le Havre to Southampton, winning tidily. Loubat eventually sold her in 1877, after many adventures in European and Russian waters. His book is among the earliest American yachting memoirs. John Hay was Lincoln's assistant private secretary from his election as president until 1864, then embarked on a diplomatic career - secretary of the legation in Paris 1865-7, Madrid 1867-8, and chargé d'affaires at Vienna 1868–70 - becoming US ambassador to the Court of St. James in 1897. In August 1898, Hay became President McKinley's Secretary of State helping to negotiate the Treaty of Paris of 1898, which ended the Spanish-American War. Hay continued as Secretary of State under Theodore Roosevelt, serving until his own death in 1905. Morris & Howland, p.87; not in Toy [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
