        Gavriliada.

      . (Snovidenie). (Gawriliada von Puschkin). 23 S. Illustrierte OBroschur. Carygrad', Simonides' i Ko. s.a. (1889?) - - Das skandalöse blasphemisch-erotisches Gedicht über die Irrungen um die Empfängnis Jesu und ihrer Verlautbarung durch den Erzengel Gabriel entstand um 1820 und wurde von Anfang an Pushkin zugeschrieben, der die Autorschaft anläßlich mehrerer staatlicher und kirchlicher Untersuchungen wohlweislich stets abstritt. "Illegal copies of the text circulated in Russian society for a hundred years until it finally saw the dark of print at the beginning of the 20th century." (wikipedia) Fraglich ist, wann the dark of print tatsächlich ins Licht trat: eindeutig nicht zu Beginn des 20., sondern bereits in den 60er Jahren des 19. Jahrhunderts: 1861 veröffentlichte N. P. Ogarov Teile der Gavriliada im Rahmen einer Sammlung russischer clandestiner Literatur (Russkaya potayennaya literatura XIX stoletiya. London, 1861); dieser Erstdruck basierte auf einer offenbar korrupten Textfassung ("na osnove ne vpolne ispravnogo spiska"). Danach wurde das Poem in Zeitschriften und Büchern besprochen oder zitiert, aber als eigenständiger Text erschien es zuerst in Genf und (Paris?), ab 1904 auch in Berlin (Hugo Steinitz). Die früheste in Bibliotheken nachweisbare Ausgabe erschien in Genf, ohne Angabe des Druckers, 1889. Diese Ausgabe ist nicht häufig, aber weltweit in einer Handvoll Bibliotheken vorhanden; sie umfaßt 24 Seiten in Oktav (17 cm) und trägt den französischen Titelzusatz "Gabriliada. - Pouchkine"; allerdings herrscht Uneinigkeit über den Druckort, mal heißt es: Geneve 1889, dann: [Geneve 1889] oder auch: [s.l. 1889]; es ist anzunehmen, daß es sich bei "Geneve" um einen ermittelten Druckort handelt, vielleicht existieren aber auch verschieden Ausgaben mit und ohne Angabe des Druckorts. 1898 erschien das Werk ohne Druckort "chez tous les principaux libraires" und mit dem Zusatz "eroticeskaya poema", ebenfalls mit 24 S. und im selben Format (In-16) wie vorliegender Druck (SUDOC), aber auch wiederum 1889 mit denselben Kennzeichen und dem Titelzusatz "eroticeskaya poema", in "[Geneve?], 1889" (Exlibris, Schweden). 1889 sieht verdächtig nach einem verdrehten 1898 aus und "Geneve" nach dem Label "russischer Exildruck". Vorliegenden Druck besitzen weltweit drei Bibliotheken: New York Public Library, russische Staatsbibliothek und BULAC Paris ("Exemplaire imprime sur papier rose. Tres rare"); der Druckort, Konstantinopel/Istanbul, ist nicht unbedingt fingiert, der deutsche Zusatz zum Titel spricht aber für eine Entstehung im deutschsprachigen Raum, der in Klammern gesetzte Zusatz "(Gawriliada von Puschkin)", als einzige Verwendung des Deutschen im gesamten Text, hat eine Parallele zum Titelzusatz "Gabriliada. - Pouchkine" der deutlich größeren "Genfer" Ausgabe und das Format ist identisch mit dem der Ausgabe von "1898". Einzigartig unter den nachweisbaren Drucken ist die Erotisierung des Textes durch die Verwendung rosa Papiers und die Exotisierung duch den Druckort Tsar'grad. Ob es sich um die erste (Buch-)Ausgabe handelt, läßt sich nicht feststellen, die Entstehung im 19. Jahrhundert ist unzweifelhaft angesichts von Papier und Typographe, die Wahrscheinlichkeit, daß es sich um einen Vorläufer der oben beschriebenen Ausgaben handelt, ist groß. - - Umschlag mit kleinen Beschädigungen und Eckausriß; insgesamt frisches Exemplar.

        Picturesque Palestine, in Three Volumes. Volumes I-III [COMPLETE].

      London, Virtue, (1889).. Three volume set. Complete. Royal quarto (32 x 27 cm). Pp. x, 240 plus 10 steel-engraved plates; vi, 240 plus 12 steel-engraved plates; vi, 240 plus 11 steel-engraved plates and a double-page engraved map of Palestine, printed in orange and blue, with inset plan of Jerusalem. The total number of 33 plates includes four different steel-engraved frontispieces and four different, large steel-engraved title vignette, all printed on heavy paper bound-in, with tissue-guards. The three volumes are illustrated with a total of 429 wood-engraved illustrations, many of which are full-page, all with explanatory captions. Index to each volume. Titles printed in red and black. Hardcover, uniformly bound in the original publisher's richly decorated green cloth, gilt panelled and lettered, spine gilt, bevelled boards, all edges gilt, yellow endpapers. In about fine condition (occasionally some spotting; slight wear to spine ends.) A very handsome set, very well preserved. ~ Second edition, published in three volumes. It does not differ from the first edition, in four volumes, which was published in 1881. The publisher, James Virtue, seeking new marketing opportunities, substitute the line "In Four Volumes" with "In Three Volumes" and did not reissue the fourth volume, devoted to Sinai and Egypt. Other editions followed suit. Appleton of New York has published a two-volume version, rather crowded in comparison with the original, and indeed one that could not match the exceptionally fine, two large folios of the German edition that was published in 1833 under the direction of Georg Ebers and Hermann Guthe. Although it is Wilson who receives all the credit for this monumental work, it is the contribution of the authors whose work he edited that makes this three-volume opus of value. Distinguished Palestine explorers such as Canon Tristram, Charles Warren, M. Rogers, and notably Major Claude Reignier Conder, R.E. (1848-1910), as well as several others created the necessary balance between image and word. The superb steel engraved plates are printed here with fine, crisp detail, subtlety and elegance. Noteworthy are the artists who produced them. Most of the original paintings were made by J. D. Woodward and Harry Fenn. Born in England in 1838, Fenn came at the age of 18 to the United States where he has achieved great success as an illustrator of books, was one of the founders of the American Watercolor Society, and has been one of its exhibitors nearly every year since its organization. Some of his best work is contained in "Picturesque America," "Picturesque Europe," and "Picturesque Palestine". A keen traveller, Fenn has travelled extensively through the United States, Canada, Europe, Egypt, Palestine, and the Sinai Peninsula. Other artists include C. Werner and H. A. Harper. The engravings were executed by numerous outstanding craftsmen, noteworthy among them are C. Bertrand and E. Brandard. The numerous lovely and lively wood-engraved illustrations complete this celebration of word and image. A fine set. [Total weight: 10 kg]. [Descriptive text Copyright © Librarium, The Hague].

        Idylls of the King

      Fine with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full blue cloth, spine in six compartments separated by gilt borders, gilt lettering in two compartments, gilt devices in remainder, elaborate gilt, silver and black decoration on cover. Includes all 12 books, each with its own title page. Illustrated with 37 full-page, tissue-protected plates by Gustave Dore. Idylls of the King, published between 1859 and 1885, is a cycle of twelve narrative poems by the English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892; Poet Laureate from 1850) which retells the legend of King Arthur, his knights, his love for Guinevere and her tragic betrayal of him, and the rise and fall of Arthur's kingdom. The whole work recounts Arthur's attempt and failure to lift up mankind and create a perfect kingdom, from his coming to power to his death at the hands of the traitor Mordred. Individual poems detail the deeds of various knights, including Lancelot, Geraint, Galahad, and Balin and Balan, and also Merlin and the Lady of the Lake. The Idylls are written in blank verse. Gustave Dore (1832-1883) is one of the most popular illustrators of all tme. He was a prolific engraver, artist, illustrator, and sculptor, working primarily as a wood and steel engraver. He produced over 100, 000 sketches in his lifetime, and lived to be 50 years old. Even though he was an untrained, self-taught artist, who never used a live model, and who could not sketch from nature, his work is considered some of the most important in the entire engraving art world. Although he illustrated over 200 books, some with more than 400 plates, he is primarily known for his illustrations to The Divine Comedy, particularly The Inferno, his illustrations to Don Quixote, Idylls of the King, and Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven. Expertly refurbished, tight, square and clean. All of the illustrations are in perfect condition. FINE. B Drawings. Folio 13" - 23" tall. 363 pp

        Abila of the Decapolis, Pella, and Northern 'Ajlun, "Within the Decapolis." [THREE BOOKS IN ONE VOLUME].

      London, Watt (for the Committee of the Palestine Exploration Fund), 1889.. Three books in one volume. Crown Octavo. Pp. 51; 78; 207. Plus three folding lithographed maps, one of which is coloured, each as frontispiece to each book; two lithographed plans bound in Book III. With numerous engraved illustrations, some full-page, throughout. Indices of names with transliteration, Arabic script, and translation. Hardcover, bound in the original publisher's ochre cloth, lettered in black, illustration stamped in gilt on cover. In a very fine condition. Excellent copy of a lovely book. ~ First edition. Three books in one volume, published 1889, 1895, 1890 respectively. Provenance: Noted classicist Dr. Henriette Boas' copy, with her bookplate. Schumacher was the first explorer to survey the regions described here, and his minute and thorough scientific observations, notes, maps, drawings, and sketches were prepared for publication at the request of the Palestine Exploration Fund by his friend, the explorer Guy le Strange. They were published here for the first time. Gottlieb Schumacher (1857) settled at a very young age with his family in Haifa, where his father, a member of the "Temple Association" designed most of the buildings of the German Colony. Following the completion of his engineering studies in Stuttgart, he returned to Haifa and was appointed Chief Engineer for the Province of Akko. He designed many buildings and was a leading figure in civil engineering. One of his most important projects was the survey of the Golan, Hauran, and the Ajlun districts in preparation for the construction of the Damascus-Haifa railway. In the course of this survey he produced the first accurate maps of these regions, along with detailed descriptions of the archaeological remains and the present villages. He published many other reports and books on his discoveries, supported by the Palestine Exploration Fund. With the outbreak of World War I the Templar community left for Germany. Schumacher returned in 1924 to his home on the Carmel, where he died a year later. Although he was born in Ohio, U.S.A., Gottlieb was brought-up and educated as a German. "I beg to through myself on the indulgence of my readers for the defects of style," he once wrote, "for my work has been perforce written in a language which, though familiar to me, is not my own."

        Large Signed Watercolour Panorama of Gibraltar, Titled]: Gibraltar.

      1889 - 1889. Watercolour on paper, heightened in white, ca. 30,5x45,5 cm (ca. 12x18 in) within hand drawn ink border. Traces of an old mount visible on verso, otherwise a very good watercolour. This attractive scenic and skillfully executed watercolour shows the panorama of Gibraltar from across the Bay of Gibraltar in Algeciras with a merchant boat and fishing boats in the foreground. The skilled artist was probably serving in Gibraltar with the Royal Engineers when he created the painting. "Gibraltar became a key base for the British Royal Navy and played an important role prior to the Battle of Trafalgar and during the Crimean War of 1854-56, due to its strategic location. Its strategic value increased with the opening of the Suez Canal, as it lay on the sea route between the UK and the British Empire east of Suez. In the later 19th century there were major investments in improving the fortifications and the port" (Wikipedia).

The sheet is 340 x 246 mm and is too large for the scanner and so it is reproduced here in two sections. The scanner's platen is also not wide enough to accommodate the entire width of the sheet so the margins of the images here are cut off. Only the colorful first page is offered here. The pages of printed sheet music, the 4 page musical score that followed are not here and are not available. OCLC: Libraries worldwide that own item: 2.
