        The Vicar of Wakefield

      John C. Nimmo, London, 1889. Hardcover. Fine. "Oliver Goldsmith's hugely successful novel of 1766 remained for generations one of the most highly regarded and beloved works of eighteenth-century fiction. It depicts the fall and rise of the Primrose family, presided over by the benevolent vicar, the narrator of a fairy-tale plot of impersonation and deception, the abduction of a beautiful heroine and the machinations of an aristocratic villain. By turns comic and sentimental, the novel's popularity owes much to its recognizable depiction of domestic life and loving family relationships." [Pub. Info] Full maroon leather, marbled end pages, gold leaf on top, middle and bottom edges; gold tooling on the cover. Minor wear along hinge (front and back covers) more pronounced on the front hinge; minor wear to extremities. 114 colored illustrations. Bright and clean pages. The book is in Fine condition.

        Hulda. Marche et airs de Ballet. Transcription a 2 pianos. Autograph musical manuscript signed and dated November 18, 1889

      1889. Folio. 35, [ii] (blank), 36-61 pp. 34.5 x 27 cms. Notated in black ink on 14 hand-ruled staves per page. Additional markings in red crayon and pencil. Occasional corrections. Significant rewriting of two bars on page 42. Slightly worn, soiling to corners, otherwise in very good condition. Preserved in paper wrappers with attractive calligraphic titling to upper. . Franck began his opera Hulda in 1882 and finished it in 1885. Its first performance was given posthumously on March 8th 1894 at Monte Carlo. The opera is based on a Scandinavian legend with text by Ch. Grandmougin after a dramatization by Bjornson. It was not published until 1894, at which time it was issued by Choudens in Paris. Even though Hulda did not premiere until after Franck's death, the Marche and Airs de Ballet from the opera were performed and these were quite well received. In a letter to Vincent d'Indy (one of Franck's students) written from Antwerp on August 14, 1885 Franck stated: "I want to tell you that at a concert here your `Chevanchee du Cid' was played perfectly, and had a great success...You were in the same company as your master, whose march and ballet music from `Hulda' were warmly applauded..." D'Indy: Cesar Franck (translated by Rosa Newmarch), London, 1910. The same music from Hulda was also performed at the Franck Festival on January 30th 1887 at the Cirque d'Hiver. It would appear, moreover, that of the entire opera the ballet music was closest to Franck's heart. Again, quoting from d'Indy: "At the same time he almost took the bit between his teeth (forgive the trite expression) at one moment while composing Hulda; but it is remarkable that it was the ballet that carried him away from the first, and that was still symphonic music. He wrote this ballet without pause or break, at the same time as a prologue, which does not appear in the score as it now stands, having been replaced, no one knows why, by an epilogue. One evening in the autumn...

        Kapital und Kapitalzins. Erste Abteilung. Geschichte und Kritik der Kapitalzins-Theorieen. [Zweite Abtheilung. Positive Theorie des Kapitales.]

      Innsbruck: Verlag der Wagner'schen Universitäts-Buchhandlung, 1884-1889 - 2 volumes bound in one, octavo (214 × 135 mm). Contemporary pebbled grain cloth, spine direct-lettered gilt, preserved in a custom made cloth backed box. Housed in a burgundy quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery Rear board detached, spine frayed at head and foot, short horizontal split , and joints worn. One or two sections sprung, blank corner of one leaf torn away, text unaffected, natural printing flaw affecting two letters of another leaf. Edges lightly browned and a little brittle, as usual with books of this period. Withal a very good copy with a very good association. Ownership inscription of Philip H. Wicksteed to the initial blank recto of the first title-page, with his printed bookplate to the front pastedown. Later library stamps of the British Library of Political Science and Newcastle University Library, with cancellation. Scarce first edition of the chief work of Böhm-Bawerk's life, a copy with a marked provenance. First owned by Philip Wicksteed, with his ownership inscription dated 1886 on the first leaf and with his bookplate. The volume subsequently passed to the British Library of Political Science, from there to the Armstrong College Library in Newcastle, and thence to the University of Newcastle. There are a small number of stamps recording the book's moves, mostly small, and in the blank margins of leaves. "A monument of creative analysis and a mile-stone on the road of our science, this work presents a series of critiques of theories of interest, each a piece of theoretical cabinet work, each a work of art unequalled in its perfection. The book does not give descriptions of the social and historical milieu in which each theory originated. Nor are there any philosophical embroideries or synthetic substitutes for explanation. Even the history of thought in the field of its central topic takes second place. The author limits himself to one of many possible tasks: he concentrates on one theory of interest after another, considering in each case only its substantive content. This content he reformulates with masterful perception, appraises its essentials with an unflinching eye, using only a few simple but decisive arguments. With a minimum of effort, following the straightest possible line, and with the most graceful elegance, he dispatches one theory after another; and - after having carefully exposed the cause of the disaster - he continues on his way without losing another word, or indeed without saying one word too many. There is no book from which one could learn better how to seize firmly on the essentials and how to ignore the irrelevant. And then, everything having been so methodically and conscientiously prepared, there appeared, as the second volume of Kapital und Kapitalzins, Die positive Theorie des Kapitals. This was, despite the suggestion of a narrower content in the title, a comprehensive analysis of the economic process, the work of his life, the most personal product of his efforts. Whatever views future generations may hold of the separate links in the chain of his thought, they can never fail to admire the magnificent design, the grandiose élan of the whole work. It is in any case quite certain that this was an effort to scale the greatest heights that economics permits, and that the achievement actually reached a level where only a few lofty peaks are to be found" (J.A. Schumpeter, Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk in: Ten Great Economists, (1956), pp. 152-3). Batson, p. 22; Menger, column 128; not in Einaudi. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Félix Alcan, Paris 1889 - Half title + TP + Dedication Page + [VII]-VIII + [1]-182 + 1 leaf = Table des Matières, Octavo. First Edition. First edition of Bergson's doctoral dissertations and his first book - translated into English in 1910 as Time and Free Will, An Essay on the Immediate Data of Consciousness. "In 'Time and Free Will' Bergson undertook to show that the recognition of real duration provides a basis for vindicating human freedom and disposing of determinism Freedom of action, according to Bergson, is something directly experienced. Man feels himself to be free as he acts, even though he may be unable to explain the nature of his freedom. However, we are free only when our act springs spontaneously from our whole personality as it has evolved up to the moment of action." (EP, Vol. 1, p. 288)"This thin volume contains a complete system of metaphysics. It bears all the traits of an early work of genius in which the germs of the author's entire philosophy are contained." (Müller-Freienfels, pp. 89-92) Lausanne, Sept. 94".

        Autograph Letter Signed]

        Kate Greenaway Signed Letter Dated 29 December, 1889

      1889 - The letter, presumably to S. S. McClure, the founder of "McClure Magazine", is written from Hamstead, is as follows: "Dear Sir, I have my time completely filled up for some months. Therefore I can't undertake anything else at present. The proofs of illustrations and prospectus which you said you had forwarded to me never came. Yours truly, Kate Greenaway." The letter is written in a hasty but still legible hand. McClure's became a popular illustrated general interest magazine in America, especially noted for its muckraking journalism. Samuel Sidney McClure (1857-1949) was its co-founder. However, it did not get off the ground until 1893. (The magazine lasted until 1929.) Thus here we have the wannabe publisher being rebuffed in his pursuit of Greenaway who was at the peak of her fame. The letter measures 14.5 by 9 cm. It has a fold line across the center, and it is soiled particularly on the top, with a very minor loss of paper not touching the content. (Part of Greenaway's address is blurred by the soiling.) Still, a scarce letter in Greenaway's hand that relates directly to the business of publishing and perhaps provides a glimpse into Greenaway's life at the time. With matting, from which the letter was carefully removed to examine the back but attractive and ready to have the letter relaid therein.

        Gruppenbildnis von Felix Mottl, Hermann Levi und Hans Richter mit 2 eigenh. U.

      [Bayreuth], 10. VIII. 1889.. 1 S. 8vo. 165 x 105 mm.. Gruppenbildnis der Bayreuth-Dirigenten Hans Richter ("Meistersinger"), Hermann Levi ("Parsifal") und Felix Mottl ("Tristan"). "Unserer lieben Mali", eh. signiert von Hermann Levi und Felix Mottl. - Seit 1870 näherte sich Hermann Levi dem Kreis um Richard Wagner, dessen Parzifal er 1882 in Bayreuth uraufführte (DBE). Er wurde im Laufe der Zeit zu einem fanatischen Anhänger der Bayreuther Festspielidee und blieb als solcher bis über den Tod Wagners hinaus der (von Cosima Wagner anerkannte) bedeutendste Parsifal-Dirigent. Die Wahl Levis zum Leiter der Uraufführung dieses Werkes ist, im Gegensatz zu weit verbreiteten Ansichten, nicht von vornherein dem Wunsche Wagners zuzuschreiben; sie war vielmehr die zwangsläufige Folge der Mitwirkung des von Wagner (ohne Levi) angeforderten Münchner Hofopernorchester, welches von der Münchner Intendanz nur unter der Bedingung von Levis Mitwirkung zur Verfügung gestellt worden war (vgl. MGG VIII, 681).

        Götzen-Dämmerung (Twilight of the Idols) in Wrappers

      "Was mich nicht umbringt, macht mich stärker"(That which does not kill me, makes me stronger)NIETZSCHE,Friederich. Götzen-Dämmerung(Twilight of the Idols). C.G. Naumann, Leipzig, 1889. TP + 3 leaves + [1] ?" 144, Octavo. First Edition, First Issue (Schaberg 56a).Gotzen-Dammerung includes some of Nietzsche?s most direct and scathing attacks on many decadent "idols" within the history of philosophy. In classic Nietzsche style, he probes the psychological landscapes of these "declining" types whose thinking originates in a place of weakness rather than strength. Many identify Gotzen-Dammerung as both a summary and introduction to Nietzsche?s overall philosophy.Nietzsche wrote The Twilight of the Idols (originally entitled "Mussiggang eines Psychologen" or "A Psychologist at Leisure") between the end of June and September, 1888, and sent the manuscript to Naumann in early September, with his final additions to the text being sent October 4th. Naumann finished printing the 1,000 copies by November 13th, shortly after which advance copies were sent out to Nietzsche and others. The book appeared in book stores on January 24th, for sale in wrappers for 2.25 marks and bound for 3.50 marks. Two weeks earlier the now-demented Nietzsche had been transported to a clinic in Basel, never to regain his sanity. (See Schaberg, pp. 166-169 for complete details.)NOTE: Schaberg claims that between 1890 and 1892 Naumann distributed a second issue of the unsold sheets of the first edition, distinguishable from the first issue only by the presence on the rear wrapper of advertisements for books by several authors other than Nietzsche. In the first issue ?" as seen here ?" only Nietzsche's books are listed on the rear wrapper.Original printed green-grey wrappers with black printing to rear wrapper, and red & black printing to the front. The spine has been restored with an uneven visualline aling rear (worse in photo than in reality). Light chipping to the edges of wrapper. Internally clean, bright, free of markings. Title page with elegantly scripted name in contemporary hand (see photo). A very good copy of this important book in the rare original wraps.

        Ups and Downs of a "Crook's" Life. By an Ex-Convict

      Published by the Author, [New York] 1889 - Written during the author's 5-year sentence in Clinton Prison, New York, and self-published in the hopes that "If I can sell enough of my books to earn a living, the temptation that sometimes drives ex-convicts back to crime will, in my case at least, be removed, and I will again have a new start in life" (from the Introduction, p. 8). Describes Bailey's experiences in a gang of forgers and his multiple stays in prison. Also valuable for the writing's generous use of underworld and criminal slang: "I told him I had the boodle in my pocket, and I turned it over to him.I was very much afraid that Billy was going to 'do me dirt' by giving me the slip after I had got the boodle; and I was also afraid that 'Yaller' would punch me for not turning the dust over to him.However, I kept my 'lamps' pretty well peeled on both of them." (p. 18). First edition, small octavo (19cm.); original blue decorative cloth stamped in gilt and black; 150pp.; engraved author portrait frontispiece; edges a bit rubbed with boards minimally exposed, spine a touch cocked; Fine interior in Very Good, quite attractive binding.
