        Programm zur Eröffnungs-Vorstellung am 1.März 1888 des Etablissement Ronacher, Wien, zu Gunsten der Wiener Freiwilligen Rettungs-Gesellschaft. - ORIGINAL.

      Wien, Eigenverlag, 1888.. 1.Auflage, 1 Blatt, Größe ca. 69 x 45 cm, einseitiger handcolorierter Holzschnitt auf sehr dünnem Japanpapier, Fol.. Farben durch Feuchtigkeit verlaufen, Einrisse repariert, Faltspuren, etwas fleckig. ------------------------------------------------------- Bei diesem Theaterprogramm für diese eine Vorstellung, handelt es sich um eine absolute Rarität, da das Blatt nur in einer geringen Stückzahl gedruckt wurde und davon mit Sicherheit nur sehr wenige Stücke bis heute überlebt haben. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Das Ronacher, früher Etablissement Ronacher, ist ein Theater im 1. Wiener Gemeindebezirk Innere Stadt, gelegen zwischen Himmelpfortgasse, Seilerstätte und Schellinggasse. Es bildet gemeinsam mit dem Raimund Theater und dem Theater an der Wien die Spielstätten der Vereinigte Bühnen Wien und ist über die Wien Holding zu knapp 100 Prozent im Eigentum der Stadt Wien (einen Minderheitsanteil hält Rudolf Klausnitzer). ---------------------- Es wurde zunächst als Wiener Stadttheater von 1871 bis 1872 von den Architekten Ferdinand Fellner dem Älteren und Ferdinand Fellner dem Jüngeren für eine private AG des Journalisten Max Friedländer und des Theaterautors und -leiters Heinrich Laube erbaut. Zwölf Jahre nach der Eröffnung brannte am 16. Mai 1884 das Haus nieder. Da das Gebäude nicht an allen vier Seiten frei steht, wurde nach den inzwischen gültigen Brandschutzbestimmungen ein Wiederaufbau als Schauspielhaus nicht zugelassen. 1886 kaufte Anton Ronacher die Brandruine und ließ wiederum von Ferdinand Fellner d. J. (der inzwischen das Büro Fellner & Helmer gegründet hatte) 1887-1888 darauf ein Concert- und Ballhaus errichten. Das neue Etablissement Ronacher war kein Schauspielhaus, sondern mit Tischen und Stühlen ausgestattet. Während der Vorstellung durfte getrunken, gegessen und geraucht werden. Durch die schlechte Wirtschaftslage musste Ronacher jedoch das Haus später aufgeben. Ab 1890 traten öfter Artisten auf, was vermehrt Vorstadtbevölkerung anlockte und die Aristokratie vertrieb. Später wurde das Programm durch Revuen, Operetten, Tanz- und Gesangsvorführungen ergänzt. Das Haus wurde dabei immer wieder umgebaut und den Bedürfnissen des modernen Varietebetriebs angepasst (1901, 1906 und laufend zwischen 1907 und 1916; immer durch Ferdinand Fellner d. J.). .......

Very scarce, especially thus. M&#145;Govan claims to have been responsible for seeding the &#147;extraordinary crop of &#145;Detective&#146; stories from other writers&#148; that appeared during the 1880s, commenting in his Preface: &#147;A very eminent publisher, who refused &#145;Brought to Bay&#146; on the ground that &#145;the taste for that kind of literature had entirely faded,&#146; must now be rubbing his eyes in astonishment.&#148; As with the other titles in the series, the present volume was published simultaneously in two formats, &#145;Pictorial Boards, Price 2s. 6d.&#146;, as here, and &#145;Cloth Gilt, 3s. 6d.&#146; Both are now very scarce, having for the most part, presumably, been read to pieces!

        The Pilgrim&#39;s Progress

      London - S. W. Partridge and Co, 1888. London - S. W. Partridge and Co, 1888 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An attractive copy of Bunyan&#39;s most influential work, this Christian allegorical tale is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature. Containing sixty-two illustrations by Frederick Barnard, J. D. Linton, W. Small, etc. engraved by Dalziel Brothers, including frontispiece. Sixth edition. With introductory notes by the Reverend William Landels. Bunyan began his work while in the Bedfordshire county gaol for violations of the Conventicle Act, which prohibited the holding of religious services outside the auspices of the established Church of England. Early Bunyan scholars like John Brown believed The Pilgrim&#39;s Progress was begun in Bunyan&#39;s second shorter imprisonment for six months in 1675, but more recent scholars like Roger Sharrock believe that it was begun during Bunyan&#39;s initial, more lengthy imprisonment from 1660-1672 right after he had written his spiritual autobiography, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners. The explicit Protestant theology of The Pilgrim&#39;s Progress made it much more popular than its predecessors. Bunyan&#39;s plain style breathes life into the abstractions of the anthropomorphized temptations and abstractions that Christian encounters and with whom he converses on his course to Heaven. Condition: In a green calf binding. Externally very smart, with just a few marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages have some spotting to the first and last few pages, and to the textblock edge, but are otherwise bright. Overall: NEAR FINE..

        The Earliest English Version of the Fables of Bidpai

      London - David Nutt, 1888. London - David Nutt, 1888 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Rebound with cloth spineand marbled paper covered boards. Part of a limited edition of 60, of which this is numbered 55 and signed by the publisher. Includes a full page plate by Edward Burne Jones, as well as several woodcuts within the text. Reprint of the 1570 edition. The Panchatantra, or The Fables of Bidpai was originally a canonical collection of Sanskrit (Hindu) as well as Pali (Buddhist) animal fables in verse and prose. The original Sanskrit text, now long lost, and which some scholars guess might have been written around 200 BCE, is attributed to Vishnu Sarma. However, based as it is on older oral traditions, its antecedents among storytellers probably hark back to the origins of language and the subcontinent&#39;s earliest social groupings of hunting and fishing folk gathered around campfires. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are firmly attached. There is very little wear to the extremities. Internally the book is clean and bright apart from some isolated spotting..
