        War and Peace

      New York: Crowell, 1889 First American Edition of the "Authorized Translation" by Nathan Haskell Dole, Deluxe Binding, in four volumes. Paper spine labels rubbed and abraded, small bookseller's sticker and previous owner's name on front end papers of each volume. A clean, tight set. Very scare; this translation is much more common in the four-volumes-bound-as-two format (which continued to be sold as late as 1900, as there are copies listing The Resurrection among the Tolstoy titles available). The first appearance of War And Peace in English (1886) was actually a translation of a French translation of the Russian original. This is the first edition translated directly from the original Russian. A heavy set; additional postage will be required (except US Media rate).

        Autograph letter signed.

      Paris, 8. XII. 1889. - 8vo. 1 p. In French, to an unidentified artist. Zola advises his correspondent to speak directly with his publisher, M. Charpentier, about his drawings because "I have very little time and prefer not to become involved in this question of illustrations. I have always thought that the best thing to do is to leave an artist free to interpret a book, as he likes. Zola adds that he does not intend to write a novel about the 1870 war for another two years". - The drawings to which Zola refers were probably meant to illustrate his novel Le Rêve, an edition of which was published in 1892 with illustrations by Carlos Schwabe and Lucien Métivet. Zola s novel about the 1870 war, La Débâcle, was also published in 1892.

        The Shorter Poems of John Milton. With Twelve Illustrations.

      - London: Seeley, 1889. Folio, xx, 124 pages. With twelve full-page etchings after paintings by Palmer. Original gold-stamped vellum over boards, slight soiling to binding as usual with white vellum. Large-paper copy, limited to 135 copies (#40). Prepared by A.H. Palmer as a companion to the Virgil, this book used highly innovative photographic techniques to render paintings as etchings; these were achieved with the help of Dujardin and the printer Goulding. The large-paper edition is very scarce, and is vastly preferable to the regular issue. “This stately volume contains twelve facsimiles of drawings by Palmer. They rank with his best work, and three notable etchings were inspired by them.” Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England from 1790-1914, 223. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        (ACERBA). Lo illlustro poeta Cecho dascoli : con el comento nnovamente trovato & nobilmente historiato:revisto:& emendato:& da molta incorrectione extirpato & da antiquo suo vestigio exemplato.&c.

      In - 8 p. (mm. 200x136), bella legatura in p. pelle tardo settecentesca, elegante e ricca decoraz. oro ai piatti e al dorso, tagli rossi, 100 cc.num.; al recto dell?ultima c. marca del ?gatto? con le iniziali M S; illustrato nel t. da 78 interessanti xilografie astronomiche e naturalistiche di varie dimensioni (2 grandi). ?Il titolo "Acerba" forse allude alla difficoltà della materia, o al mucchio (?acervo?) delle cognizioni così crudamente esposte; o forse alla ?cerva?, emblema di intelligenza e sapienza. E? un poema allegorico - didattico che tratta di molti argomenti attinenti alla cosmografia; vi si parla dei cieli e delle intelligenze celesti, degli animali, delle pietre, della fortuna, dell?amore, dei vizi e delle virtù. Notevole nel poema la polemica contro Dante, trattato con spregio: atteggiamento non ispirato affatto da invidia, come si credeva un tempo, ma da una diversa impostazione di pensiero e dal bisogno di difendere l?astrologia dalle limitazioni cui l?aveva sottoposta l?Alighieri.

        Götzen-Dämmerung (Twilight of the Idols) [in Original Wrappers]

      Leipzig: C.G. Naumann, 1889. First printing. Very Good/none. "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 Nietzsches 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 Nietzsches 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.CONDITION: 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 visual line along rear (worse in photo than in reality). Light chipping to the edges of wrapper. Internally clean, bright, free of markings.

        Götzen-Dämmerung oder Wie man mit dem Hammer philosophiert.

      Leipzig, C.G. Naumann, 1889. 8vo. Cont hcloth w. gilt lettering to spine. Professional repairs to capitals. Corners worn, and extremities w. wear. Endpapers renewed. A tight copy. Internally a very nice and clean copy w. a few underlinings in pencil. (8), 144 pp.. The scarce first edition of the epitome of Nietzsche's final project -a re-valuation of all values ("Eine Umwerthung aller Werthe"), -his hugely interesting "declaration of war" (preface p. (4): "Diese Schrift ist eine grosse Kriegserklärung"), which was written during his last productive year, just before his big breakdown in Turin.The work must be said to constitute the culmination of the production of this giant of philosophy, who turned mad after having finished it.Early in 1889 Nietzsche began to exhibit signs of serious mental illness, and in Turin he finally broke down, and was brought back to Basel by his friends. "The Twilight of the Idols" was released merely a few weeks after this collapse, and Nietzsche never wrote again.Nietzsche had 1.000 copies of the work privately printed. The work is considered one of his most popular, and it is here that we find some of the most frequently quoted passages from the works of Nietzsche, e.g. "What does not kill me, only makes me stronger" (p.2.: "Was mich nicht umbringt, macht mich stärker").The Twilight was meant as an introduction to, or summary of, Nietzshe's philosophy, and as such it is one of his most interesting works. It is written almost as in a rage of fever -in only about a week-, and as he himself states at the end of the preface: "Turin, am 30. September 1888, am Tage, da das erste Buch der Umwerthung aller Werthe zu ende kam." (i.e. "Turin, on September 30. 1888, on the day that the first book on the re-valuation of all value came to an end."). This highly polemical work makes clear reference to Wagner's opera "Götterdämmerung", and it presents us with a sharp critique of the most influential philosophers in history, e.g. Kant, Plato, Socrates, and of Christianity in general, but also the likes of Rousseau, Hugo, Renan, Mill, Darwin, Dante etc. are attacked as the causes of cultural decadence in Europe, and only the likes of Caesar, Napoleon, Dostojevski, Goethe and Thukydides represent the opposite -healthy and strong- strand.Nobody who had read this work could have been surprised with the mental collapse of the author

        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.

        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...

        The Vicar of Wakefield

      John C. Nimmo, London 1889 - "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.

      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]

        Life in the Army Every-day incidents in camp, field, and quarters, sketched by R. Simkin.

      London, Chapman & Hall, (1889), - in-4 à l'italienne, [40] pp. distribuant 20 chromolithographies numérotées et 20 dessins originaux aquarellés de l'auteur contrecollés en regard de chaque planche (dont les pages de titre illustrées et en couleurs), plein maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs orné de doubles caissons et fleurons dorés, triple filet doré en encadrements sur les plats, double filet doré sur les coupes, dentelles intérieures en encadrement des contreplats, tranches dorées, couverture illustrée en couleurs conservée, emboîtage (Riviere and Son). La colle ayant servi à les fixer a laissé de petites décharges sur les dessins. Exemplaire unique comprenant l'ensemble des aquarelles originales. Cet ouvrage peu courant de Simkin comporte en outre des annotations de l'artiste afin de réaliser l'impression. Exécutés au crayon, à la plume et à la gouache aquarellée (avec rehauts de gomme pour certains) les superbes dessins de Simkin sont d'une grande finesse d'exécution. Contrecollé sur une page de vélin montée sur onglet, chacun s'accompagne de sa version chromolithographiée pour la parution (parfois des modifications dans le texte) et porte des instructions au crayon pour le graveur (sur la planche ou en marge) ou des traces d'esquisses. Il est d'ailleurs particulièremernt intéressant de comparer les couleurs et la transcription du dessin à l'épreuve (lith. par Emrik et Binger). Richard Simkin (1850-1926) est un artiste et illustrateur brittanique qui fut employé par le Ministère de la Guerre. Célèbre tant pour son affiche de recrutement que pour ses suites militaires ou ses aquarelles d'uniformes, aujourd'hui prisées des collectionneurs, il décline durant des décennies l'Armée anglaise et ses colonies sous les multiples aspects de la vie du soldat. Les planches (ca 17,3 x 25,5 cm pour chaque) se déclinent comme suit : Drums beating at "retreat" (page de titre), In barracks (3), The Salute, With the cavalry, In the barrack yard, With the cavalry (The Riding School), On the March(2), At a field day (3), Under canvas (3), In camp, With the gunners, With the sappers et In the long Valley, Aldershot.

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".
