[2], viii, [1, contents], [1, blank], [1]-63, [1, imprint] pp. Etched portrait frontispiece.Bound by Captain Gladstone ca. 1900 (stamp-signed "C.E.G." on front turn-in) in full green crushed levant morocco, covers richly hand-tooled in gilt with an all-over vine and leaf design. Smooth spine with similar gilt tooling and lettering, gilt ruled board-edges, wide and elaborate gilt vine and leaf design turn-ins, pink watered silk liners and end-leaves, top edge gilt. Spine faded otherwise a very fine example of a 'signed' Captain C.E. Gladstone binding.In the 1880s, the book's publisher (Kegan Paul, Trench & Co.) developed "a solid reputation in London for serious literature, especially poetry, for religious books and for science" (Howsam 26). To understand the context from which In Vinculis [Sonnets written in an Irish Prison] was written, a brief summary of the current political climate of Victorian Britain in the 1880s is required. The formal beginnings of the Irish "Home Rule" movement in support of domestic political autonomy started with the creation of the Irish Home Government Association by Isaac Butt, an Irish MP at Westminster, in 1870. In 1873 the group was re-branded as the Home Rule League. In 1880, the growth of the "Home Rule" movement was becoming a significant political force within the British Parliament. The Liberals under William Ewart Gladstone were the ruling party for much of the decade, but the party had to walk a fine line between implementing liberal political reforms (such as the Married Women's Property Act in 1882 that gave married women the same rights over their property as unmarried women, and the Corrupt and Illegal Practices Act in 1883 that attempted to limit bribery and intimidation in elections and allow poorer candidates to run) and appealing to the conservative elements within the party that were essential to maintaining rule. The number of Irish MPs within the Home Rule League grew to the point that in 1885 under new leader Charles Stewart Parnell, they held the balance of power within subsequent minority governments (a short-lived Conservative minority in 1885, followed by a Liberal minority in 1886). Failure of Gladstone's first Home Rule bill in 1886 led to the Liberal's defeat as a contingent of Liberal MPs opposed to Home Rule broke away from the party (forming the Liberal Unionist Party) and supported the Conservatives.Wilfrid Scawen Blunt (1840-1922) was a poet, hedonist, diplomat, Middle Eastern traveler, Arabian horse breeder, political activist, and notorious lover. As a poet Blunt is known best for his love sonnets (initially published under the pseudonym "Proteus"), which described his amorous encounters with more explicit detail than was typical for the Victorian period. He also became politically active during the second half of his life, staunchly anti-imperialistic and supportive of political independence for nations still under the colonization of the British Empire, including Egypt, India, and Ireland. His support of the Irish nationalists in their quest for "Home Rule" (self-governance for domestic issues while remaining part of the United Kingdom) led to his incarceration by the British parliament's Chief Secretary for Ireland in 1888, setting the stage for writing his prison sonnet sequence, In Vinculis.Captain Charles Elsden Gladstone, RN, (1855.1919). Very little is known about Captain Gladstone other than he was born in Salford, Lancashire and lived in London, Hertfordshire and then Broadstairs in Kent. According to the 1891 census of England & Wales his occupation was listed as "Commander Royal Navy" and then in 1901 as "Commander of H.M.S. Eagle". We believe that he, like the Irish finisher Sir Edward Sullivan (who signed his books "E.S. Aurifex"), had his books bound by a local bookbinder - possibly John Smith of Maidstone, and then did the hand-tooling (finishing) himself. Apparently he was also a talented photographer - there are mentions of him in The British Journal of Photography (1889), the Journal of the Microscopic Society (1893) and he was an officer of the Lantern Society from 1890-93. His bindings with their very distinctive decorations are very often, but not always, signed in gilt "C.E.G." on the front turn-in.

        A Doll's House: Play in Three Acts

      London: T. Fisher Unwin,, 1889. Translated by William Archer. Square octavo. Original japon vellum, gilt lettered spine and front cover, publisher's device in gilt on back cover, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Half-tone portrait frontispiece of Ibsen, 6 half-tone plates of actors in various roles. Binding showing general signs of handling, slight cockling to covers. A very good copy. First edition in English, number 7 of 115 copies signed by the publisher: scarce. Ibsen's groundbreaking drama was first published in 1879 and in the same year premiered at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen on 21 December. This translation is by the theatre critic and journalist William Archer (1856-1924), who first met Ibsen during a tour of Italy in 1881 and their friendship became "an enduring relationship of mutual respect, fostered by Archer's translations and productions of Ibsen's plays... he helped direct his translation of Ibsen's A Doll's House, staged at the Novelty Theatre on 7 June 1889 for twenty-four performances. He was meticulous in his attention to expressive details, concerned always at achieving thoroughly realistic effects... His pioneering advocacy of Ibsen in England cannot be underestimated (he wrote more than 175 pieces about Ibsen), although his other contributions to the theatre are equally valuable" (ODNB).

      1889. Considered to be One of the Finest Works of the Nineteenth CenturyA Superb Binding by Riviére & Son[RIVIÉRE & SON, binders]. CARLYLE, Thomas. Sartor Resartus: The Life and Opinions of Herr Teufelsdröckh. London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Co., 1889. Sixteenmo (6 3/16 x 3 5/8 inches; 157 x 93 mm.). [vi], 306, [1, imprint], [5, blank] pp. Portrait frontispiece with tissue guard. Title-page printed in red and black.Bound ca. 1920 by Riviére & Son, stamp signed in gilt on lower turn-in. Full antelope crushed levant morocco, covers decoratively ruled in gilt surrounding a very elaborate floral design in pointillé, spine with five raised bands, similarly decorated and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt-ruled board edges, full dark blue morocco liners elaborately decorated in gilt, blue watered silk end-leaves, top edge gilt. A wonderful example of the art of 'pointillé'.Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) was a Scottish philosopher, satirical writer, essayist, historian and teacher. Considered one of the most important social commentators of his time, he presented many lectures during his lifetime with certain acclaim in the Victorian era. One of those conferences resulted in his famous work On Heroes and Hero Worship and The Heroic in History where he explains that the key role in history lies in the actions of the "Great Man", claiming that "History is nothing but the biography of the Great Man". A respected historian, his 1837 book The French Revolution: A History was the inspiration for Dickens' 1859 novel A Tale of Two Cities, and remains popular today. Carlyle's 1836 Sartor Resartus is considered one of the finest works of the nineteenth century.Sartor Resartus (meaning 'The tailor re-tailored') is an 1836 novel by Thomas Carlyle, first published as a serial in 1833?34 in Fraser's Magazine. The novel purports to be a commentary on the thought and early life of a German philosopher called Diogenes Teufelsdröckh (which translates as 'god-born devil-dung'), author of a tome entitled "Clothes: Their Origin and Influence", but was actually a poioumenon. Teufelsdröckh's Transcendentalist musings are mulled over by a skeptical English Reviewer (referred to as Editor) who also provides fragmentary biographical material on the philosopher. The work is, in part, a parody of Hegel, and of German Idealism more generally. However, Teufelsdröckh is also a literary device with which Carlyle can express difficult truths.

        "Play Ball." Stories of the Diamond Field by Mike Kelly of the Boston Base Ball Club

      Boston and New York: Kean & Kelly. 1889. Second edition. Octavo. vi, [7]-86, [6, ads], [4, blank]pp. Publisher's printed brown wrappers, front cover with engraved portrait of Kelly. Spine and covers lightly worn, with small chip from bottom end of spine. Previous owner's name in pencil at head of title page. In custom brown cloth clamshell box.The second edition of this work of baseball anecdotes and autobiography by Mike "King" Kelly (1857-1894), the first memoir by a baseball player. Kelly, at the time of this work a member of the Boston Beaneaters, was an early innovator of the game, introducing or popularizing such techniques as the hook slide, the hit and run, and the art of intentionally fouling balls to build up the pitch count. Handsome, personable, and extremely popular with fans, Kelly parlayed his success on the field into second career as a vaudeville performer --- his act including recitations of the poem "Casey at the Bat." In 1945 Kelly was inducted into the Baseball Hall Fame in only its second vote.A first edition of Play Ball was published in 1888 by Emery & Hughes. Both editions are rare, with OCLC locating only one copy of this edition. Grobani 27-1 (for 1888 edition, the earliest work listed under "Anecdotes and Recollections"); Smith 14906 (erroneously listing an 1883 edition); OCLC 863156817 (1 copy, New York Public Library). A great baseball rarity. .

        EDGAR (1889). Dramma lirico in tre atti di Ferdinando Fontana. Opera completa per Canto e Pianoforte. Nuova edizione [in tre atti]. Riduzione di Carlo Carignani. timbro a secco Febbraio 1892 (Pl.n°53736).

      Ricordi2ª edizione. Cm.27,2x20,2. Pg.(4), 248. Legatura in mz.pergamena non editoriale con piatti marmorizzati. La coperta originale, in riproduzione fotostatica policroma, è conservata all'interno. Bruniture al frontespizio e restauri cartacei alle ultime nove carte. In generale, causa il tipo di carta usato, i margini delle carte sono abbastanza fragili. Con indicazione degli interpreti della prima esecuzione assoluta del 21 aprile 1889 al Teatro alla Scala: Romilda Pantaleoni, Gregorio Gabrielesco, Pio Marini, Antonio Magini Coletti, Aurelia Cataneo. Al piede dei nominativi degli interpreti la notazione a stampa "Prima esecuzione della nuova Edizione in tre Atti: Ferrara, Teatro Comunale, 28 febbraio 1892". Sempre alla seconda carta dedica autografa manoscritta di Puccini: "All'illustre avvocato Senatore Pelosini, Omaggio di Giacomo Puccini. Torre del lago, 29 ottobre 1894". Buona grafia, firma estesa. Si tratta di una rara seconda edizione dello spartito per canto e Piamo dell'"Edgar" pucciniano. Dopo il buon successo de "Le Villi", opera prima del maestro lucchese nel 1884, Giulio Ricordi commissionò a Puccini una seconda opera, e la scelta cadde su "Edgar", anch'essa, come "Le Villi", su libretto di Ferdinando Fontana, liberamente tratto da "La coupe et les lèvres" di Alfred De Musset. L'opera fu composta dal 1886 al 1889, quando il 21 aprile 1889, sotto la direzione di Franco, fu eseguita, in quattro atti, alla Scala, con discreto successo. In vista di una ripresa, sempre sollecitato dall'attento Ricordi, Puccini revisionò la partitura in vista di una ripresa. Dopo tali modifiche e aggiustamenti, l'opera fu di nuovo rappresentata, sempre in quattro atti, a Lucca nel settembre del 1891, al Teatro del Giglio. Fu dopo questa esecuzione che venne decisa la soppressione del quarto atto, e la nuova versione in tre atti andò in scena al Teatro Comunale di Ferrara il 28 gennaio 1892, sotto la direzione di Carlo Carignani. La presente edizione è quella adottata in tale occasione, e fu utilizzata anche nelle successive messe in scena dello stesso anno, al Teatro Regio di Torino (5 marzo) con Mario Ancona, al Teatro Real di Madrid diretta da Luigi Mancinelli (19 marzo) ed al Teatro Grande di Brescia (18 agosto). In seguito vi furono altre revisioni. La presente edizione è particolarmente rara in quanto, presentando il timbro a secco del febbraio 1892, costituisce in assoluto uno dei primissimi esemplari usciti dai torchi di Casa Ricordi. Il tutto, ovviamente, impreziosito dal bell'autografo del Maestro al Pelosini. "Narciso Feliciano Pelosini (Fornacette di Cascina, 9 giugno 1833 ?" Pistoia, 9 luglio 1896) si dedicò, oltre al suo mestiere di avvocato, anche alla carriera politica nel campo liberale, ma lasciò traccia di sé anche nel campo della letteratura, che fu la giovanile aspirazione della sua vita. Firmò le sue opere o con la sigla N.F.P. o come Giovan Paolo d'Alfiano, l'antico nome del paese natale. Fu amico di Giacomo Puccini e in un'occasione ne fu anche l'avvocato difensore. Fu titolare della cattedra di diritto penale presso la Scuola di scienze sociali di Firenze e partecipò ad illustri processi dell'epoca, tra cui anche quello fra il politico Giovanni Nicotera e "La Gazzetta d'Italia", giornale di Firenze. Tra le sue conoscenze e amicizie annoverò anche quella di Giosuè Carducci. Il 4 dicembre 1890 fu nominato senatore, militando nella destra. Morì a Pistoia il 9 luglio 1896 e attualmente riposa nel Cimitero della Misericordia della stessa città. Ancora oggi è visibile una lapide presso la sua casa natale in via Tosco Romagnola a Fornacette (Pisa)" (da wikipedia) . > Schickling, 62.E.2, "Second Italian edition": "The edition was announced in the "Gazzetta Musicale" of February 1892 and, according to MRK, printed on February 1892. Compared to 62.E.1 [the first edition], this edition contains numerous minor changes in dynamics, expression marks, and in the part - writing of the voices". Hopkinson, 2B, "The Dedication has been dropped from this edition. On the Personaggi page the names of the cast are those who took part in the original production but at the foot there is a note giving the place and date of the first production of this new second version".

        Nietzsche contra Wagner

      Leipzig: Naumann, 1889. First edition. Very Good +/none. NIETZSCHE, Friedrich. Nietzsche contra Wagner, Naumann, Leipzig, 1889. TP + 1 leaf + Vorwort + 1-[42], Octavo. First Edition, (Schaberg 57).Only ONE HUNDRED COPIES Printed of Nietzsches Inflammatory Attack on Richard Wagner.Nietzsche contra Wagner was one of Nietzsche's final productions before he slipped into insanity, Iit was the last work that he was able to proof and correct before publication. The book is an assemblage of Nietzsche's writings on Wagner, selected from the books he had already published, but with many of the entries re-edited by Nietzsche for their inclusion here. For Nietzsche, Wagner represented the incarnation of the central problem of his time. On the one hand, Wagner was living proof that human greatness could still exist in a non-heroic age, while on the other, he exemplified, in his submission to the blandishments of power, a painful object lesson in the perils that a great spirit must elude if it is to fulfill his dream of self-realization.Once the corrected manuscript was in the publisher hands, there was much confusion over what should be done about the printing given the fact that the philosopher was now in a Basel psychiatric institution. Nietzsche's friend, Peter Gast, suggested several changes to the text, but actively urged publication while his other great friend, Overbeck, was shocked by what he read in the book and pleaded that any publication of the text would be a grave disservice to Nietzsche.In the end, Naumann privately printed just 100 copies of the work as Nietzsche had corrected it, giving 25 copies to Overbeck and the other 75 to Gast to be given to Nietzsche's friends.CONDITION: Contemporary marbled boards, lightly scuffed. Restored handwritten spine label and renewed endpapers. Very good+. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Contemporary marbled boards, lightly scuffed.

        Le Morte Darthur by Syr Thomas Malory: The Original Edition of William Caxton

      London: Published by David Nutt, in the Strand, 1889. Handsome Victorian reissue of Caxton's Morte D'Arthur, the foundational version of the Arthurian legend in English. Written by Thomas Malory as a "knight prisoner" in 1469-1470, Morte D'Arthur was first published in 1485 by English printer William Caxton. This edition sought to restore the authoritative text of Caxton's original printing, which had been revised by generations of successive editors. The first volume opens with a facsimile page from the British Museum's copy of Caxton's Malory, one of two surviving examples. The printed text that follows reproduces Caxton's spelling and page layout, and even notes the signature marks of the 1485 printing. While courtly romances were generally popular among the aristocracy in the late Middle Ages, Malory's account of King Arthur's Round Table was by far the most influential. These tales of enchantment, treachery and heroism, from the legend of Tristan and Isolde to Lancelot's quest for the Holy Grail, defined the age of chivalry for hundreds of years to come. In Malory's vivid retelling, knights-errant roam the countryside around Camelot, the wizard Merlin gives his "best counceil,", and Arthur receives Excalibur from the Lady in the Lake: "And in the myddes of the lake Arthur was ware of an arme clothed in whyte samyte / that held a fayr swerd in that hand." This copy was splendidly bound in 1906 by Elsé Hoffman of the Guild of Women Binders, with her monogram and the date tooled in both volumes. Malory was a natural choice of text for a guild binder, appealing to the same Pre-Raphaelite sensibility that animated the Arts & Crafts movement. In the year that she completed this binding, Hoffman would exhibit her work at the Arts & Crafts Exhibition Society show in London and the International Book Production Exhibition in Frankfurt (Tidcombe, Women Bookbinders 1880-1920). A fine bright copy of an Arthurian classic. Two large octavo volumes, early twentieth-century full green crushed morocco, raised bands, spines and front boards elaborately lettered in gilt, boards ruled in gilt, triple-ruled gilt dentelles with inlaid morocco cornerpieces, binder's monogram and date "1906" tooled in gilt to lower dentelles, grey endpapers, all edges gilt. Facsimile page from Caxton's Malory and tipped-in editor's note in Volume I, half title in Volume II, oversized Gothic initials throughout text. Text complete in two volumes, without the accompanying two volumes of secondary material. Scattered light foxing to upper margins.
