        [Photo Album]: Colorado Farm Life with Hunting

      [Circa 1890s]. Quarto. Measuring 10" x 12". Red cloth over paper boards with gilt stamped decorations. Contains 32 sepia toned silver gelatin photographs with some duplicates and three cyanotype prints measuring around 4" x 7" without captions. Good only with front board detached, lacking the spine, and chips with very good photographs, some fading.A collection of photographs featuring farm life and hunting in the American West around 1890. While unidentified, the location appears to be where the Great Plains meet the mountains, perhaps in Colorado. The photos depict the owners of the land posing near their cabin and a larger farm house in a variety of seasons: one photo shows a group of men enjoying some recreation under a tree after a summer picnic (with one holding a tennis racket) and the three cyanotype prints showing the men outside the house after a snowstorm.Hunting is the predominant subject depicted throughout the album with men posing with dogs, guns, and with kills. Photos including a man posed holding a gun with pelts attached to his belt and his dog sitting in front of him. Another shows a man on horseback holding the head of a deer, while several others showcase a hunting encampment. Also featured are the animals from the area including beautiful photos of a mountain lion by a river, a group of deer laying in a field, and cattle fenced in with a mountain range visible in the distance. While men are predominately featured throughout the album there is an image of a lone woman on horseback, which suggests her absence from other photos may be due to her being photographer of the group. A terrific collection of photographs depicting late 1800s farm life on the Plains with an emphasis on hunting. .

        LA PHOTOGRAPHIE JUDICIAIRE.; Avec un appendice sur la classification et l'identification anthropométriques par Alphose Bertillon, Chef du Service d'identification de la Préfecture de Police

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars et Fils, 1890. First edition. Bertillon, Alphonse. 12mo., (iv), 115, (1) pp., with 8 b&w photogravure plates, with printed tissue guards, from photographs. Printed wrappers which are lightly soiled, initials in monogram printed on the upper left corner of the front wrapper. The front blank is foxed, as is a 1/16 inch of the lower blank margin of a few leaves. A very good copy. Alphonse Bertillon (1853-1914), a renowned researcher and member of the Paris police department, is credited with creating a criminal identification system known as anthropometry in 1882. This process measured and recorded various body parts of arrested suspects cataloging the results in order for eyewitnesses to identify these criminals in the future. Bertillon also standardized the criminal mug shot and the evidence picture. He developed "metric photography" that he intended to use to reconstruct the dimension of a particular space and the placement of objects in it. Crime scene pictures were taken before the scene was disturbed in any way. He used mats printed with metric frames that were mounted along the side of the photographs. Photographs pictured front and side views of a particular object. Bertillon also created many other forensics techniques, including handwriting analysis, the use of galvanoplastic compounds to preserve footprints, ballistics, and the dynamometer, to determine the degree of force used in breaking and entering. The Truthful Lens, # 12.

        Jeypore Portfolio of Architectural Details [Parts I-VI only]

      London: Bernard Quaritch, 1890. 1st ed. Hardcover. Fine. The first six parts only (of an eventual 12 -- the other six were published over the next 23 years). Each volume (Part) consists of: (1) a title-page; (2) a single-page preface (repeated in each Part) on the back of which appears a Contents list for that volume; (3) 1-4 pages containing Short Descriptive Notes about the plates; and (4) the plates of architectural details. There are a total of 374 plates in these six volumes. 348 of those plates are printed completely in black and white while the other 26 are either printed in color or have one or more detail printed in color. The title-pages and plates are printed on one side. The former owner of this set didn't like having the plates and other contents loose in portfolio volumes and constantly at risk of chipping and other loss or damage from mishandling so he had a binder individually stub every page and uniformly bind these six parts in modern buckram in 1966. Receipts indicate that he paid $125 for the set and spent another $315 to have them rebound. These are large folio-sized volumes (54cm.). Minor cover scuffing and wear only. The plates generally show only minor age-toning and an occasional minor edge repair and perhaps a couple of corner chips or repairs. Two plates in Part IV have been bound in out of order (plate 3 appears after plate 5 and plate 47 after plate 54). A typed list identifying the localities in India where the architectural details in these six volumes were located was prepared by the former owner and mounted on the verso of the title-leaf in Part I . Part I. Copings and Plinths; Part II. Pillars -- Caps and Bases; Part III. Carved Doors; Part IV. Brackets; Part V. Arches; and Part VI. Balustrades. These volumes were published under the patronage of Maharaja Sawai Madhu Singh of Jeypore. Jacob is identified as Engineer to the Jeypore State. According to the Preface: "The lads who have been employed in preparing the drawings are all natives of Jeypore, trained first in the School of Art, and then in the office of the Executive Engineer."

        In Darkest Africa or the Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria.

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington Limited, 1890 - 2 volumes, demy quarto. Original dark brown half morocco, japon on bevelled boards with the title, flag of Emin Pasha and Stanley's signature to the upper boards gilt, gilt lettered spines, top edges gilt, others uncut, dark brown silk page-markers still intact, and in place. Spines rubbed, scratch across numbering panel of volume I, sides stained, volume I with stain in the gutter at head of a number of leaves and splash marks across rear endpapers, otherwise internally clean and sound. Titles printed in red and black, photogravure portrait frontispiece of Stanley on India paper mounted (printed by Lemercier from a photograph by Walery), similar Lemercier-printed frontispiece to volume II, and 44 plates, 6 of them etchings printed in sepia, signed in pencil by G. Montbard, the rest printed on India paper and mounted, 4 maps, 3 of them folding, the 2 large area maps linen-backed, 1 folding printed table, and 103 illustrations in the text, 3 of them full-page. First edition, edition de luxe, number 199 of 250 copies signed by Stanley. Stanley's famous account of his expedition to relieve Emin Pasha (Eduard Schnitzer), the beleaguered governor of equatorial Sudan, contains some of his most celebrated writing, especially his account of the tortuous 450-mile passage through the dense Ituri rain forest. Stanley's dealings with Emin Pasha, who proved singularly resistant to being "rescued", his abandonment of his own rear column and his wider motives for his mission have all come under suspicion then and since, but the book remains a classic of African exploration. In the course of the journey Stanley met Roger Casement, then in service on the Congo, discovered the great snow-capped range of Ruwenzori, the Mountains of the Moon, a new lake which he named the Albert Edward Nyanza and a large south-western extension of Lake Victoria. Translations of In Darkest Africa appeared quickly in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Dutch while sales of the English trade editions reached 150,000 copies. This lavishly produced edition de luxe is certainly one of the grandest publications devoted to African exploration of the entire 19th century. Speake pp. 1132-35

        Grand Tour" Photograph Album.

      Florence: Giulio Giannini,, [c. 1890]. Oblong quarto (249 x 325 mm). Original Japanese vellum over bevelled boards, decorative gilt spine, sides elaborately panelled in gilt, central gilt stamp of the Florentine fleur-de-lis, decorative brown and gilt endpapers. With the original red faux leather dust jacket. 102 albumen print photographs of old master paintings (50) and sculpture (51), and one attributed to Guglielmo Plüschow. An excellent copy in a remarkably well preserved example of the scarce dust jacket. A fine example of a deluxe late 19th century Florentine photo album produced by the the distinguished Florentine booksellers, binders and paper makers Giulio Giannini and aimed directly at the high-end Grand Tour market. Founded originally in 1856 by Pietro Giannini (1811-1882), the business was radically transformed by his son Giulio Sr. (1853-1931) who concentrated exclusively on artistic bookbinding, and supplying Grand Tour albums and specially bound books to visitors to Italy. The firm still operates today at the same location in Piazza Pitti. This example contains a series of albumen prints of sculpture and artworks in Florence, Rome, Venice, Naples, and the Vatican, including some from the studio of Giacomo Brogi (1822-1881), founder of the Italian Photographic Society and the Fratelli Alinari; the plates of sculpture are particularly striking. Of particular interest is an art photograph depicting a young child posing as a cherub draped in lace and holding ivy leaves; stylistically and in terms of subject matter this could possibly be by Guglielmo (or Wilhelm) Plüschow (1852-1930); it also bears the distributor's stamp of Angelo Pedo, Roma (on the verso) which is a consistent feature of Plüschow's photographs.

        A collection of 14 important autograph letters to the German soprano Rose Ader, Puccini's "last love and the only consolation in my life." 30 pp. in total. Written between May 20, 1921 and September 11, 1924, the letters chart the progress of both the couple's love affair and Puccini's final opera, Turandot, which he never completed. Puccini died on November 29, 1924, less than three months after the final letter in this collection was written. With much revealing commentary regarding both the composer's personal and musical activities and offering new insight into his relationship with Ms. Ader

      Rose Ader (1890-1955) made her début at the Hamburg Opera in 1915. She sang at opera houses in Germany, Austria, France, the Netherlands, and Italy, including the Vienna Staatsoper and the La Scala. In 1921 she sang the title role in the German première of Puccini's Suor Angelica in Hamburg, and in La Bohème at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome in 1922. Her repertory included both coloratura and lyric roles. Following her marriage to an Italian baron, she sang under the name Ader-de Trigona. Ader's Jewish heritage forced her to emigrate to Austria in 1933, and then to Italy. In 1949, she settled in Buenos Aires, where she spent her final years as a pedagogue. "Thirty-two years his junior, [Ader] had sung Angelica at Hamburg in February 1921. Schnabl, who produced, found her insufficiently dramatic for the role. Puccini, who attended at least one performance, formed a more positive opinion, although he would later admit that the final scenes were too heavy for her. Photographs were exchanged, and by the spring a love affair had blossomed. Of his many letters to her, known to exist in private hands, only one, dating from May of that year, has found its way into print - an extravagant outpouring of infatuation ('the only woman I love in the world etc')... Yet, as with Wagner and Judith Gauthier, one suspects that the affair was more in the mind than in the flesh. There is no record of secret trysts, of carefully laid plans to elude Elvira's detection." Budden: Puccini His Life and Works, p. 433. The present collection presents an intriguing counterpoint to Budden's contention regarding there being no record of "secret trysts" and/or attempts to elude Puccini's wife Elvira's detection of his infatuation with Ader. As concerns possible trysts, in letter no. 6 dated October 19, 1921 Puccini mentions that he thinks that his wife is trying to prevent him from being with Ader and is going to try to have Adami help him see her and, in letter no. 8 dated February 4, 1922, Puccini suggests that "it would be better if you came towards the thirteenth or fourteenth" and that they can then be together in Rome, saying that he would like to see Ader very much. As concerns possible attempts to elude his wife's detection, in letter no. 4, Puccini specifically asks Ader not to write to him because the letter might be opened and thus cause trouble; in letter no. 6, Puccini states that he thinks that Elvira is trying to prevent him from being with Ader; and, in letter no. 10, the composer asks Ader to send her letters to his house, because no one [else] will read them if she does so.. Letter 1 2 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre del Lago, May 20, [19]21, 11:00 p.m. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. Incomplete. With autograph envelope postmarked Torre de Lago, May 21, 1921 with Ader's name and Hamburg address. Puccini laments his inability to be near Ader; he cannot go to her without causing a great scandal. He works all day. Only his thoughts of her give him comfort; he kisses her portrait and writes music - presumably his opera, Turandot. "This Turandot is so difficult! Liù is coming along well - it is for you that I am writing it (as I have already told you)... ". Letter 2 2 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre de Lago, Sunday, May 22, [19]21, midnight. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. Puccini speaks of seeing Ader in nearby Viareggio, then Milan, but absolutely cannot leave. She should never doubt that, if he could, he would "fly" to her. He tells her not to grieve for him. He is not badly off in his own home, but does not have the freedom he would like. He will write to her if he finds that he must go to Berlin in the autumn. Puccini goes on to discuss several of his compositions: his operatic trilogy, Il Trittico; La Bohème; and Turandot, upon which he is still hard at work. "I received a telegram from Leipzig, where Il Trittico has had great success. [Otto] Lohse conducted Tabarro (Mantel) and Schicchi. Fine director... I am working a lot on Turandot. I read that Busoni's [Turandot] was given in Berlin. I am very pleased with my work. It is you, and my love for you, that encourages me to do well. We hope!... I wish you good luck for [your performance as] Mimi on the 30th. You will be delicious!" Letter 3 2 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre del Lago, June 6, [19]21. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. With autograph envelope postmarked Torre del Lago, June 7, [19]21 with Ader's name and Hamburg address. Puccini has not heard from Ader in two days, but that may be because of a postal strike. He misses her letters; his day is wasted if he does not hear from her. He keeps her photographs in a book between other books near his work table so he can look at them whenever he wants. He especially likes the picture of her as Mimi, and another large one with a veil, which he has cut down to a smaller size. He kisses them many times. He complains of how difficult Turandot is. The previous day was bad, and he couldn't do anything good. Today, things are going better. So is his life, with high and low moments, even with regard to his health. Perhaps he is working too hard; he hardly ever moves, unless it is in an automobile. He concludes with love. "I love you! I kiss your beautiful and savory mouth!" Letter 4 4 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Munich, [ca. August 21, 1921], Midnight. On stationery with the name, Munich address, and emblem of the Regina-Palast-Hotel embossed at head. With several annotations and corrections in Puccini's hand. With autograph envelope postmarked Munich, August 2[1?], [19]21 and Hamburg, August 22, [19]21 with Ader's name and Hamburg address. Puccini has just telegraphed Ader; he thinks it best not to write, because the letter might be opened and cause trouble in the future. He has had a tiresome day: tea at the home of the painter [Gerolamo] Cairati, his friend from Milan, and dinner at the usual Odeon Bar with [Riccardo] Sch[nabl] and Mrs. Frigierio, [?]his mother, and her husband, all from Milan. Now he is going to bed. He longs for her. She will be very busy now, preparing to go to Viareggio. He was wrong to tell her not to write, but now it is too late. He received her two telegrams that evening, and he will telegraph her again the following day, requesting an answer, so that he will have news of her each day. The following night he will see Braunfels' opera, Die Vögel, which Walter had told him was very interesting. He expresses his love. "This evening I dined at the usual restaurant, the Odeon Bar... Sch[nabl] spoke a lot about Art ["Kunst"]! I was very bored. The usual violinist played Angelica, Bohème, Butterfly. Now I'm going to bed with Adalina, who is not a woman, but another thing that you know. I think and will think about you, about your beauty, your eyes, your mouth, your hair, your hands, so many of your things so beautiful and dear that I would like to have here close to me!... [In broken German:] Goodbye my pretty Rose, my life, my treasure, I love you with my heart! [In Italian:] Don't laugh!... " Letter 5 2 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre del Lago, September 22, 1921. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. That morning Puccini felt badly seeing Ader so discouraged and sad. He does not know what to do to make her happy, and grieves over it. She knew his circumstances; he told her everything about himself and hid nothing. He wishes he could surround her with so much care and attention, and give her everything himself, but it is impossible. He leaves her free to decide - not to worry if he suffers. He will suffer whatever sorrow there is for her. He cannot stand knowing her discontented, and does not want her to live a life that she cannot stand. "My life is shattered without you. I already hold you in my heart. You are my last love and the only consolation in my life. But to see you so dissatisfied and sad grieves me and I can sacrifice myself to let you go. But even when [you are] far away, I will not cease to love you - and until death... I adore you and will always adore you, that is certain. Farewell, I kiss your sweetest mouth." Letter 6 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Mercaldi, October 19, 1921. Puccini has received two letters from Ader. They were well written, and he understood everything. He had telegraphed her that he was leaving the following day, but instead he will leave on Friday. He hopes to find her letters at the Teatro Comunale. Schnabl has written from Vienna, and will come to Bologna. Puccini himself is very sad because he will not be alone in Bologna. They will go to Rome and then afterwards he will come to Milan in order not to move again. He thinks that his wife is trying to prevent him from being with her. He is going to try to have [Giuseppe] Adami help him see her. He understands that her studies with Bettinelli are going well. He concludes with many loving remarks. "... I curse my life, because it is my Rose I would like near!...You are my poetry, and I adore you, and I would like to see you always and kiss your mouth, so beautiful, fresh, adorable! And instead I am so far away! But there will come a time, I hope, when I can be happy with you? The Mrs. ["Frau"] has never mentioned you, but I know she thinks a lot about this love of mine. I have not been bothered, but I feel that The Mrs. thinks about it, and is going to Bologna so that I don't go with you. It is a little hidden battle. But my Muckili is in my heart and no one can take her away!... " Letter 7 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Milan, February 1[?], [19]22. On stationery with Verdi's Milan address embossed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Milan, February 2, 1922 with Ader's name and St. Moritz (Switzerland) address. Puccini reports that, after a thousand difficulties, Il Trittico has been produced. On the first night, the public was a little cold, but was better on the second. The audience at La Scala is terrible. In Rome he has also had great success with Gilda. He asks why he has not heard any news from her. He was unable to write because he was not well and then he spent the whole day at La Scala. He is a little tired and would like to be in Viareggio where there is sun and quiet. He is sad, and misses her very much. He expresses his love. "... My soul is full of sadness because of you - not through your fault, my poor, sweet one, but because I don't have you and cannot have you as I would like - always with me, or at least nearby, in order to tell you everything in my soul and to find in you that consolation that I need so much! But the world and destiny are against me... " Letter 8 2 pp. Small quarto. Dated Milan, February 4, [19]22. On note card with "Ente Autonomo del Teatro alla Scala" printed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Milan, February 4, 1922 with Ader's name and St. Moritz address. Puccini has telegraphed both Hamburg and St. Moritz, but has heard nothing from Ader in several days. He is perplexed. He plans to go to Viareggio towards the fourteenth or fifteenth of the month because he does not feel well in Milan. On the twenty-first he must be in Rome for eight days. [Riccardo] Redaelli found her a very clean pension, which, however, did not have any room. He will have something for her when she arrives. Il Trittico went well at La Scala, Suor Angelica not so well with a soprano from Bologna. He sends kisses. "... Where have you been? O mysterious woman! And what have you done in Berlin? Whom have you seen?... It would be better if you came towards the thirteenth or fourteenth - then [we can be] together [in] Rome, Muckili. Think about it. I want to see you very much, but I am a little perplexed because[?] you [are] mysterious!... " Letter 9 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Viareggio, Lunedi [February 1922?]. On stationery with "Viareggio Via Buonarroti" embossed at head. Puccini has just received Ader's two letters. He asks her whether she has seen Ortlieb and whether he mentioned Puccini. He sent telegraphs to Maestro Paolantonio and to Valcarenghi. Hoping to feel better, he took a purge that morning, but feels immensely sad instead. On Saturday his wife, Elvira, and his son, Tonio, will arrive, so Ader should write to Viareggio, post restante. It annoys him that they are coming. He would have wished to have seen her without them there, but patience, always patience. She is in the middle of the festivities and the automobile races. His is mailing this letter registered. He reports that Redaelli has left for Milan. The weather is as gloomy as his own spirits. He laments life without her. He sends kisses. "I don't know what to tell you today! I am not well and I no longer have faith in myself, nor hope in anything. I feel that I am losing you. Life without you is very sad for me. It is as though everything were finished. It would have been better if I had never known you - yes, better for you and for me. But you are young and will have a good life, whereas for me, it will be the opposite... My sky is full of dark clouds! Even Turandot gives me no comfort!... " Letter 10 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Viareggio, July 10, [19]22. On stationery with "Viareggio Via Buonarroti" embossed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Viareggio, July 10, [19]22 with Ader's name and Salzburg address. Puccini has seen [Giulio] Gatti-Casazza, whom Ader met in Vienna, and was unable to obtain anything for her. Gatti-Casazza has no openings for lyric singers, and there much competition among Americans. He very much wishes he could have been of service to her. He has received her letter, and read of her success in Budapest. He was very happy for her. He asks if she no longer goes to the Seeligmans, and for news about an Italian baron (probably Ader's future husband), whom she should not trust. He does not work because he does not feel like it. He has received the third act (presumably of Turandot), but it is still not good. Adami will come soon, and they will correct it. He begs Ader to write to him. She may send her letters to his house, because no one will read them. "... And what news is there of the Italian baron? I would not put too much trust in a man from the South. Be careful!... I think a lot about beautiful times gone by! My Muckili is so far away and life is difficult for us! Then, the usual word: I am old! Truly I am. There are many people here, but they all mean nothing to me. Winter is better. I often see [Angiolino?] Magrini and a few others - no women... " Letter 11 2 pp. Quarto. Dated July 23, [19]22. On stationery with "Viareggio Via Buonarroti" embossed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Viareggio, July 24, [19]22 with Ader's name and Salzburg address. Minor tearing, soiling, and wear; annotations in pencil to upper panel. Puccini has just gotten out of bed; he has been sick with a fever for several days, and feels very weak. He has received all of Ader's letters. If he feels better, he, his son, and Magrini will drive to the Dolomites, then to Munich, and perhaps to Holland. If he is well enough to make the trip, it would be toward the fifteenth or twentieth of August. He has not worked any more on Turandot. He tells Ader that if she wants to be a coloratura, she must have courage. He congratulates her because he knows she has the tenacity and desire to become one. He begs her for news. In a postscript he adds that he has sent her a copy of Madame Butterfly in Italian. "... I have not worked on Turandot any more. I don't feel like it; I don't feel like doing anything. I think that my life is no longer what is was. I am a little sad and also resigned to my destiny. I have a dry heart. I think, though, about all our matters with pleasure and even with nostalgia. If you had been near me I would have had some consolation. But your future with me would have been dangerous... " Letter 12 2 pp. Quarto. Dated Catigliano, August 9, [19]22. On stationery with "Viareggio Via Buonarroti" embossed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Catigliano, August 9, [19]22 with Ader's name and Westerland address. Annotations in German in black ink ("Miramar House unknown"). Puccini is staying with Magrini. It was too hot in Viareggio, and there were too many people there. He will, however, return to Viareggio the next day to prepare for his automobile trip. They will probably leave around the fifteenth, and will go to the Dolomites, then to Oberamergau, Munich, and the Black Forest. They propose to arrive in Holland. He is much better since his illness; the last few days in the mountains have done him good. Madame Vezsi wrote him a very kind letter from Berlin. He may be in Munich on August twenty-second, but he does not think they will stay at the Regina because it is too expensive. There are four Magrini people accompanying him on the voyage. He asks for news from her, and sends greetings to Dr. and Mrs. Tony[?]. Puccini also mentions Turandot (which remains unfinished), Manon Lescaut, and Suor Angelica; as well as a disagreement with the publisher Giulio Ricordi regarding a foxtrot (based upon the humming chorus from Madame Butterfly) which had been illegally published by Ricordi's New York branch. "... I always think of my dear and sweet Muckilina with nostalgia... Gilda [Dalla Rizza] wrote me from Buenos Aires that she sang Suor Angelica. Toscanini will give Manon at La Scala this winter. In a few days, I will sign the contract with Ricordi for Turandot, and I think we will reach an agreement on the subject of the Butterfly foxtrot... And what news of yourself? The Baron?... How sweet was Muckilina's mouth! With whom are you in Westerland? With the Seeligmans?... " Letter 13 2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Vienna, May 19, [19]23. On stationery with the name and emblem of the Hotel Bristol in Vienna printed at head. Manon has been postponed until September, and so Puccini has made his trip for nothing. In three or four days he will return to Viareggio. He thanks her for her letter. He also mentions Turandot, which he still has not completed, and the Austrian composer Erich Korngold. He sends his affectionate greetings. "... To see your handwriting again gave me joy and made me very melancholy[?]. I hope that you are happy. I am returning to my little house in Viareggio to complete the eternal Turandot. I finally have the third act, which is very beautiful. I have seen Maestro Korngold many times, who is a good and fine person. We have even spoken about you..." Letter 14 2 pp. Ca. 89 x 138 mm. [Dated Viareggio, September 11, 1924]. On a notecard with Puccini's name printed at head. With original autograph envelope postmarked Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi, September 11, [19]24 with Ader's married name ("Gentilissima Signora Baronessa Rosa Trigona") and address. Puccini asks Ader, now married, to forgive him for having shown no signs of life. He complains of a sore throat - surely a symptom of the throat cancer that precipitated his death less than three months later. The upcoming première of Turandot impels him to work. He sends affectionate greetings to Ader and her husband, Baron Trigona. "... I have not been well, and at present my sore throat is bothering me. I must set to work assiduously because in April I will give Turandot at La Scala, and I must finish the opera! I hope that my health improves... " All in Italian (with translations) except for letter no. 4 which is in both Italian and German. All in black or blue ink except for letter no. 2, which is in pencil. Signed variously "Giacomo," "G.P." "G. Puccini," "Muckilissimo," etc., and addressed variously "My good Rose," "My dear Rose," "To my sweet Rose," "My Rose," "My Muckili," etc. With minor defects including occasional wear, soiling, foxing, browning, small tears, etc. In very good condition overall.

        [Photo Album]: Nainital India Summer Resort 1890s

      India. 1890-1900. Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 11". Brown leather with gilt detail. A collection of 23 sepia toned photographs measuring between 4.5" x 6" and 6" x 8", some with captions, as well as one postcard. Photographs are very good or better with some waviness and faint spotting in a very good minus album with worn corners, a page detached but present, and lacking the spine. A photo album depicting the summer retreat of Nainital, India, located in the lake district of Uttarakhand near the mountain of Nanda Devi Massif, during the 1890s. The album shows the trip up to the region with large photos of the Indian landscape showing the lakes and mountains of Nainital. There are photos of British tourists at the resort, complete with handwritten captions identifying each person in the group photo, as well as native Indians and the Nainital bazaar. These photos were taken after the town was rebuilt in the 1880s after falling victim to a "landslip." Not only is the region known for its natural beauty and as a way to beat the brutal Indian summer, it is also renowned for its prestigious educational institutions, one of which is shown here captioned as "Girl's School in Nainital." A modest but interesting collection of a British summer holiday in the mountains of India with relatively large images. .

        ARCHIVE OF 237 ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPHS, TAKEN BY WRIGHT TO DOCUMENT HIS CIRCA-1890 VOYAGES BY SAILBOAT AND PEREGRINATIONS ON FOOT, ALONG THE NEW JERSEY COAST AND UP THE HUDSON RIVER; Intended to document his unpublished (and unknown) manuscript, "Out of the Beaten Track."

      Norristown, PA, 1890. Original photograph album. Portfolios. Very Good. The 237 finely executed albumen photographs (each measuring about 3 by 4 inches) are neatly mounted on rectos of 37 large quarto leaves (very heavy stock boards, measuring 14 by 11 inches). The 37 leaves are housed in two custom paper chemises, each titled in Crosby M. Wright's neat ink holograph: "234 [237] Pictures Taken for OUT OF THE BEATEN TRACK by Crosby M. Wright...." Included are: views of the Monmouth Beach Lifesaving Station and crew; fishing fleets; a captured white whale; ice harvesting; an offshore shipwreck; drying fish; spinning and weaving; views of the Jersey Shore and Atlantic City lighthouses; windmills; canal locks; local characters and children; numerous views of the New Jersey coast; &c. ~~ Moving up the Hudson River... Depicted in one photograph is a man in snowshoes. Several images include Dutch houses (based on roof lines) and Dutch barns. Images of two or more windmills might suggest Staten Island or somewhere up the Hudson River. The long wooden bridge in one view might be across the Hudson. Several canal locks and barges are shown (Delaware and Raritan Canal? Morris Canal?). Several views show low falls in a river, possibly the Delaware River, a bit above Trenton. The ice-harvesting images could be from New Jersey or Pennsylvania side of the Delaware River. Views of people living in cabins reflect the 1890s era of life along waterways in the eastern states. ~~ On the whole, the 237 photographs, mounted on 37 numbered boards, are in excellent condition, with sharp focus and good contrast. Although a few photos have faded over time, most of them represent an impressive production by a skilled 19th-century photographer and adventurer. The photographer, Crosby Morton Wright, was a wealthy amateur. He was born January 12, 1847 to Ellen E. and William M. Wright. In the 1867-68 Philadelphia Directory, Crosby is listed as a plumber living at 509 S. 9th Street. By 1880, the city directory lists Crosby M. Wright as living at 1419 Arch Street, without an occupation. In the 1892 city directory, Crosby is again listed as living at 1419 Arch Street with no occupation. In the 1880s and 1890s the family also appears in Philadelphia's Blue Book. Crosby's father dies between 1892 and 1893 when his mother Ellen is listed in the directory as the widow of William and living with Crosby M. at 1419 Arch Street. By 1910, Crosby has married Fanny D, a woman 22 years his junior, and has a daughter. He lives at 2405 Bryn Mawr Avenue in Philadelphia with his family, a cook, a gardener, and a housekeeper. Under "occupation," the census-taker wrote "own income." No occupation is listed for Crosby in the 1920 census. He died on August 11th of that year, and is buried at Westminster Cemetery, Bala Cynwyd.

        Photograph Album of Tresco, Isles of Scilly

      1890. nd c1880-1890.nd c1880-1890Hand written title page in ink "Isles of Scilly". 40 large format photographs, some 8x10 inches(203mm x 254mm) and others 6x8 inches(152mm x 203mm). + 5pp snapshots All sepia. Foxing to mounts and some browning to these all but the first two images unaffected by foxing. Late nineteenth century album rebound in modern cloth preserving original album spine. New end papers. Overall 80% of images are sharp, 20% have some fading but in all cases the interest and quality of the compositions is very good.The images comprise the house and gardens at Tresco Abbey including 2 striking 8x10 inch (203mm x 254mm) interiors of the house, further interiors and exteriors of one of the green houses, the ornamental grounds with subtropical plants including Yucca's and setting. Yet other images document social history aspects of the island. These document working life, daffodil fields, commercial flowers and fishing. Others concentrate on leisure pursuits including tennis + rowing. The sea is always present. 18 of the images are attributable to the the Gibsons and 8 to John Valentine but others have no attribution. The album includes two images of the contemporary ferry, possibly the Little Western. As well as an image of Cromwell's Castle, built after the 1651 conquest of the Scilly Isles it is one of the few surviving Cromwellian fortifications in Britain. Also excellent images record the unique coastal geology of Peninnis Head (Southern most point of saint Mary's) and Round Island Lighthouse designed by William Tregathen Douglass for Trinity House, completed in 1887. These images also give a fascinating insight into period dress. A rare insight into the social history, architecture, geology and horticulture of a unique island at at time when the proprietors of the Scilly's was Thomas Algernon Smith-Dorrien-Smith of Tresco Abbey.

        In Darkest Africa or, The Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria

      London: Sampson, Marston, Searle, and Rivington, 1890. First edition, edition de luxe, number 199 of 250 copies signed by Henry Stanley. Original half black morocco over vellum, top edges gilt, 2 volumes. Two steel-engraved portrait frontispieces, two photogravure plates on India paper, mounted, 36 wood-engraved plates on India, mounted, 6 etchings by M.G. Montbard signed by the artist in pencil, 4 coloured maps and plans; the 2 larger folding maps mounted on linen. In very good condition with some light rubbing to the extremities. From the library of Livingstone bibliographer Frank Bradlow, with his tasteful bookplate to the front panel. A nice example with noted provenance. Stanley and Emin entered Bagamoyo on their donkeys, some way ahead of their caravan, on 4 December, 1889. It was sensational news. Emin was safe, although the expedition to relieve him had cost the lives of at least 700 people. With the good journalist's facility for rapid reporting, Stanley began his account of the rescue at the Hotel Victoria, Cairo, on 25 January 1890, working on it continuously for fifty days at the rate of 20 printed pages per day. The first portion of the manuscript was delivered to the printer's on 12 March and the last proof sheet returned for printing by Clowes on 3 June. Hosken p. 189

        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.
