        Autograph letter signed "P Mascagni" to an unidentified impresario in Vienna, addressed "Mio Caro."

      Mascagni, distinguished as both a composer and conductor, is perhaps best-known for his opera Cavalleria rusticana, which "was enormously successful from its first performance at the Costanzi in Rome in 1890. From then on Mascagni spent the rest of his long career treating a wide variety of subjects. His next opera, L'amico Fritz (1891), consolidated his success with Roman audiences, and revealed his lyrical vein. This fluent rustic comedy was successful particularly because melodic vitality - the outstanding merit of Cavalleria - was combined with a more elegant harmonic idiom." By the time this letter was written, Mascagni had also garnered considerable acclaim in Vienna, Paris, and London. Michele Girardi in Grove Music Online.. 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Rome, October 8, [1]908. In black ink. On stationery with "Corso Vitt. Eman. 154. Telefono Interprov. 458. Per telegrammi: Mascagni, Roma" printed in red at upper left. In Italian (with translation). Mascagni responds to a proposal to write a "true and authentic" operetta. He likes the idea, but would encounter difficulties "of the moral-artistic order," and especially with his publishers, Choudens and Sonzogno. As indicated by his use of "tu," Mascagni and his correspondent were on familiar terms. "But there is still a material difficulty, represented in my contracts with the publishers Sonzogno in Milan and Choudens in Paris, who will not want to adjust [their contracts] if they knew I worked for an impresario from Vienna before having delivered (as per contract) the operas that I must write for them... As you've seen I haven't spoken of monetary interests... but profits have never been a difficulty for the closing of my [business] deals." Slightly worn; creased at folds. Together with: A postcard photograph of 5 gentlemen on a street corner dated Paris 1911 on mount: Mascagni, the music publisher Edoardo Sonzogno, the writer Gabriele d'Annunzio and two unidentified others.

I went to the book in order to compare the fighting in it with the fighting in the innumerable stories of the Spanish war; but I remained to wonder of the monumental work which you have performed. To a mind like mine ( I hardly dare call it a mind ) in the presence of such profoundness as yours, it is inconceivable that you should have mastered all that detail and the grasp with which you hold it and present it is so clearly, so profoundly, simply ?? one. You can justly find that you've written the history of our battles in the great war in such a way that it could not be written again. We are going to Kittery Point for the summer and I hope to see you. W.D. Howells" . John Codman Ropes (1836-1899) was an American military historian, author, and lawyer.

        [Album Amicorum], from her first concert tour of South America, 1875-77

      filled with autograph tributes(many of several pages), poem (some incorporating drawings) , and letters including those from important authors and educators of South America. This album reflects her first major concert tour through Argentina, Uruguay, Panama, Peru, Mexico, Chile, and Cuba, and also Charleston, South Carolina; Saratoga, New York; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A few European entries are contained as well. This album will be especially useful for those who wish to know more about the South American travels of this child prodigy (who was barely a teenager) and about her reception among the cultural elite. Oblong quarto (13 x 11”; 330 x 280mm). Bound in rose-colored moire silk, embroidered with flowers. In the center is an oval bearing the embroidered name “Esmeralda.” Brown morocco spine (probably later); doublures in gold silk, ruled in gold. Manuscript table of contents at end. Manuscript album on 146 numbered pages (29 are unused) consisting of 79 letters, drawings, and tributes, some multi-page. Very good condition, with some paper cracks at gutter margin. The album was assembled with help, perhaps from her mother (d. 1890) who accompanied her on her early trips. Spanish harp prodigy and later feminist educator, Clotilde CerdÅ• i Bosch was the daughter of Barcelona city planner and engineer Ildefons CerdÅ• i Sunyer (1815-1876)* and the painter Clotilde Bosch. Gifted in the arts from her earliest years, she was sent to Rome to study painting with Mariano Fortuny. Soon, however, it became apparent that music was her gift. At the age of 13 in 1873, she debuted at the Imperial Court Theatre in Vienna with her first harp concert. The stage name Esmeralda Cervantes was created to differentiate Clotilde from her artist mother. Anecdotes have that her name was suggested by Victor Hugo, after the gypsy hero Esmeralda of Notre-Dame de Paris (Clotilde was friends with Hugo, and also composers Franz Liszt and Richard Wagner); other stories hold that the Isabella II, Queen of Spain, suggested the name. According to a long biography in the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia, Cervantes was politically active, especially in her effort to provide training for urban, educated women who had no marketable skills and, as a result, could not earn a living (May 31, 1964, p. 47). From 1880 to 1881, she attempted to create an educational center specifically for women with the aim of providing education in scientific, creative, and industrial arts. When she returned to Barcelona in 1885, she founded (with Dolors Aleu i Riera) the Academia para la Ilustración de la Mujer, a female high school devoted to the industrial application of sculpture and painting. It was intended to provide training for professional women who could then be hired within industry. In 1887, Cervantes directed the publications El Ángel del Hogar [The Angel in the House] and La Estrella Polar [The Polar Star], both journals about women urbanites. In 1893, at La Exposición Universal de Chicago, she was both soloist and speaker on the cultural situation of Turkish women (she had gone to Turkey to teach the harp to the women in the sultan’s harem). In 1895, she founded the Music Conservatory of Rio de Janeiro and the School of Arpa, with the help of Lea Bach, another Catalan harpist. Esmeralda Cervantes made repeated trips during her life to South America. As a result of her popularity, honors were heaped on her: “Honorary citizen of the Uruguayan republic, decorated with many crosses and medals. Honorary professor of the conservatory of Barcelona, honorary President of the ‘Liceo Esmeralda’ of Spain, of the choral societies enterpe of Montevideo and Esmeralda, Buenos Ayres, of the lyric society La Palma of the hospital oriental, and of the benevolent society of Buenos Ayres. . . She was honorary member of the philharmonic society of Brazil and La Lyra of Montevideo, of the literary and union clubs of Lima, of the benevolent societies Damas de Beneflcencia, Sociedad de Caridad, hospital Espanol and Sociedad de 3 Miseriecordia, of Buenos Ayres . . .” and many others (Daily Saratogian, July 20, 1876, p. 3). This elaborate album has meticulously collected a host of tributes (in many cases long poems that were written by those who witnessed her performances). Interestingly, the writers were often important educators, politicians, and authors of South America, as well as Spanish-speaking authors of the United States, whom she met during her trip. The album, therefore, is an important record of the intelligentsia who gathered to watch Cervantes’ performances during her travels. Among the longer or more elaborate entries are those from the following: Alfonso, Luis (1845-1892). Author: Noticia del Certamen Universal de Filadelfia en 1876 (Madrid: Peroj, 1878) (p. 68); Bernat, Pedro A.

(Manzanillo, Cuba, 1877; pp. 73-4); Llosa de Carbonera, Mercedes Cabello (1845-1909). A Peruvian writer and feminist influenced by the current of positivism and naturalism, she was the initiator of literary realism in Peruvian novels. She wrote six novels of social content and critical intent; the most successful of these were Blanca Sol (1888), Las consecuencias (1890), and El conspirador (1892). She also wrote numerous articles and essays on literary and social topics which were published in Peruvian newspapers. She specially advocated the emancipation of women and was one of the first Peruvian feminists. (N.p., 1876; p. 53); López Montenegro, José. Journalist and union leader who belonged to the body of military administration and participated in the revolution of 1868. In 1869, he directed The Republican Zaragoza and was influenced by anarchism, so he was expelled from the army and imprisoned for refusing to swear allegiance the new king, Amadeo. In May of 1871, he left prison and founded the Fraternity casino workers and participated in its congress in Zaragoza in 1872. He returned to Spain in 1881 and settled in Sabadell and Sallent, where he worked as a teacher and directed the newspaper Los Disinherited (1884-1886). He was also a member of the Masonic Lodge and the Hijos del Trabajo with Anselmo Lorenzo, and spread the ideas of the French revolutionary syndicalism. (pp. 105-7); Massot, Adolfo.

        How the Other Half Lives: Studies Among the Tenements of New York

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1890. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Cloth-backed illustrated paper over boards, gilt-stamped lettering on spine; with frontispiece and 42 illustrations. With laid-in letter, handwritten and signed by Riis. Scuffed at spine tips and along edges of boards; a few light water-spots and some soiling on upper board. Appropriately worn. A ground-breaking work for the social reformer and journalist, this volume is not just important for its subject matter, but also for its presentation of that subject. Riis was an early experimenter with flash photography, which allowed him to capture the dark alleys and hidden rooms of New York City's most desperate slums. By rendering Riis's photographs as line drawings, "How the Other Half Lives" represents the first extenisve use of photographic reproduction for a book. Riis became one of the most important political figures in America -- a model of the Danish immigrant made good, with personal access to Theodore Roosevelt and the middle classes and upper eschelons on New York City. A complex character, his concerns about poverty stemmed less from romantic philanthropism, and more from his pragmatic opinions on the importance of environment, that "squalid homes make squalid people."

The first educator to offer a psychology course in the United States, James was one of the leading thinkers of the late nineteenth century and is believed by many to be one of the most influential philosophers the United States has ever produced, while others have labelled him the 'Father of American psychology'. Along with Charles Sanders Peirce and John Dewey, he is considered to be one of the major figures associated with the philosophical school known as pragmatism, and is also cited as one of the founders of functional psychology. .

        Hustak och kyrktorn i Genua.

      Akvarell. Signerad och daterad: "W. v. Gegerfelt / Genua 1890". 31,5 × 18 cm. Vacker akvarell med välbevarade färger. Proveniens: Beijers klassiska vårauktion, 25-27 april 1990 (katalog 40), nr 374 (utrop 20,000 kr.). Landskapsmålaren Wilhelm von Gegerfelt var mycket berest och gjorde studieresor till Tyskland, Frankrike, Holland och Italien. Han uppehöll sig flera år i Düsseldorf (1867-72) och hade därefter sin bas i Paris fram till 1885. Gegerfelt representerar jämte Alfred Wahlberg övergångsskedet mellan Karl XV-tidens akademiska och romantiska landskapsmåleri och den frambrytande friluftsrealismen hos opponentrörelsen på 1880-talet. Han hörde själv till friluftsmålarnas skara och arbetade sedan han återvänt till Sverige i en liten hästdragen ateljé på medar om vintrarna för att komma naturen riktigt in på livet. Han skickade även ritningarna till sin elev Prins Eugen, så att han kunde beställa en liknande åt sig själv. Gegerfelts italienska motiv hör till hans färgmässigt friskaste och är ofta från Venedig, som han besökte första gången 1880 med Carl Skånberg och Georg Pauli

        Eight or Nine Wise Words about Letter-Writing.

      Oxford: Emberlin and Son,, 1890. Duodecimo (112 × 83 mm). Bound in near-contemporary green morocco, front cover lettered in gilt, rules to covers blindstamped, all edges gilt. Spine refurbished, a little rubbing to edge, some spotting to endleaves. An exceptional copy. Charles Dodgson's annotated proof copy of the second edition, featuring his corrections in manuscript. The title-page is inscribed by Dodgson in his customary violet ink, noting that the copy was corrected on "July 9, 1890. Please send fresh proof to no. 7 Lushington Road, Eastbourne." Dodgson's inked corrections throughout tend towards greater concision, though he inserted an extra rule in the chapter on "How to go on with a Letter": "Do not fasten up the envelope till post-time is close at hand. Otherwise, you will have to tear it open again, to insert something you had forgotten to say." The witty work is filled with practical and humorous advice, such as, "don't fill more than a page and a half with apologies for not having written sooner!" Dodgson also warns against the dangers of addressing two envelopes at once, for the two letters will certainly go into the wrong envelopes, "and if (as is most probable), one was a letter of congratulation and the other of condolence, the outcome of your morning's work would be to turn two of your best and oldest friends bitter enemies for life!"

Hakluyt Society, First series: No. 76, 77 and 80. Harry Charles Purvis Bell, ass't. Originally published with title: Discours du voyage des Francois aux Indes orientales ... par Fran. Pyrard. Paris, 1611. Attributed also to Pierre de Bergeron and Jerome Bignon. Vol. I covers from 1601 to Pyrard's arrival at Goa in 1608. Vol. II (part I) covers from 1608 to Pyrard's departure from Goa in 1610 and has continuous main pagination with First Series 80. Vol. II (part II) covers 1610-1611, the return to France. With a treatise on animals, trees, and fruits, and advice upon the voyage to the East Indies. The supplementary material includes the 1889 annual report. "Francois Pyrard de Laval... wrote works which stand in the very first rank of those which enabled their contemporaries to gain some idea of the country which they had visited," (Oaten p. 116). "Pyrard's travels covered the years between 1601 and 1611, and have crowded into them a welter of shipwrecks, imprisonments, and other adventures such as seldom falls to a man without leaving him permanently scarred. ...His first-hand experiences and acquaintance with various parts of the mainland of India and the islands of the Archipelago make his record a valuable repository of geographical and historical knowledge of the East. Especially has it been commended for his account of the Maldive Islands," (Cox, p.290). Borba de Moraes II, 169. Rodrigues 2008. National Maritime Museum 411. Oaten 265. Cox I: 290.

MANUSCRIPT HAND SCROLL SHOWS SUMO POSITIONS OF LOVE-MAKING A most charming Rakuga or caricature type hand-painted Sumo scroll. A humorous work, basically shows three people: the Sumo wrestler against a stout and stock woman and the umpire in most scenes. * It begins with an introduction of the three Sumo wrestlers and the three woman opponents. All are in the nude and prepared to battle in the "Sumo Love War." The next vies shows the beginning match with each prepared to start. The man reaches for the woman's vagina, while she tries for his penis. Then he inserts his hand into her vagina while she grabs his erect shaft. They embrace while she wraps her leg around his back, the umpire watches with a large erection. The couple roll and tumble while making love. Then the man puts his head into her vulva, while the umpire is thrown away. * A truly delightful frolic surely done by an artist with a keen sense of humor ! The scroll is painted on a thick paper, with crushed mica dust on the back side, enforced with a thin brown edging, and with dark brown hard wood ends, which have been turned on a lathe. * The subject of erotic Sumo wrestlers is quite unusual and unique in the genre of erotic Japanese art. * Color scans can be sent by email.

From 1869 - 1876 he had lived in Trinidad while working in the Hooper Brothers lumbering enterprise and then in a retail store. In 1876 he settled in Arcata and started a career as the proprietor of a series of retail businesses. As was common in dry goods stores of that time, he sold a variety of goods and services, from pharmaceuticals and stationery to a printing service. He began to take pictures of local businesses and landscapes and place them for sale in his store windows. Eventually Ericson also began to receive commissions for photographs and he could concentrate solely on photography. His brother Richard Ericson (1843 - 1924) joined A.W. upon his arrival from Sweden in 1882, and joined the operation. The publication Eureka and Humboldt County around 1896 notes that Richard was also considered a photographer" (Humboldt State).
