        [Broadside]: Grand Military Entertainment by St. Joseph's College Battalion, Wednesday Eve, Nov. 18, in The College Auditorium

      [No place - Rensselaer, Indiana: St. Joseph's College? 1891?]. Broadside. Approximately 8.5" x 11.75". Old folds, small tears and nicks, contemporary small pencil name ("Lizzie"), very good. No publishing information, our best guess (and it is a guess, but at least informed by some provenance) is that this broadside is from St. Joseph's College of Indiana, which was founded in 1889 by the Missionaries of the Precious Blood as a secondary school to educate Native Americans. OCLC locates no copies.

        Autograph letter signed to his friend and patron, Oskar Grohe

      2 pp. Octavo. Dated April 1, 1891. In German (with translation). Regarding the forthcoming first performance of his cantata, Christnacht. "Please be so kind as to let me know directly, or through Weingartner, if the orchestral rehearsals of Christnacht have already started and how they have gone so far. Please also send word as to when the dress rehearsal is scheduled. If only you could get Weingartner to write me a note!" . Wolf's cantata, Christnacht, to a text by August Graf von Platen-Hallermünde, was first performed under the noted Austrian conductor Felix Weingartner (1863-1942) on April 9, 1891 in Mannheim, "the last concert to be conducted by Weingartner at Mannheim before he left to take up an appointment with the Berlin Opera." Walker: Hugo Wolf, p. 285. Apparently conceived as the composer's "answer to Bach's Christmas Oratorio..." "... The first sketches for the work are dated Christmas Eve 1886... In a letter to Oskar Grohe (26 February 1891), Wolf wrote that he had conceived the composition as a portrait of Christ's personality in two manifestations, the child and the ‘Weltüberwinders’, or hero who overcame the world. At the end, these themes and other musical ideas merge and unfold ‘with tongues of flame the dogma of God made man and of salvation’, he told Grohe, adding that if the execution did not keep pace with the concept it was ‘nobody's fault but my own’... Christnacht has much to commend it and many admirable effects in the lengthy orchestral introduction alone... But Wolf being neo-Bachian/Lisztian in huge brass-laden choruses is Wolf being bombastic, especially in the chorus of believers (Platen indicates shepherds here, but this was insufficiently solemn for his purposes, so Wolf told Grohe, hence their new designation as ‘Gläubigen’) and the final chorus, and the work is in consequence not an unmitigated success..." Wolf "intensified the expressive vocabulary of the lied by means of extended tonality and post-Wagnerian declamation while retaining the defining elements of the song tradition he had inherited from Schubert and Schumann. Profoundly responsive to poetry, he incorporated detailed readings of his chosen poems in the compositional decisions he made about every aspect of song: harmonic nuances, tonal form, melodic design, vocal declamation, pianistic texture, the relationship of voice to piano, etc. Seeking an art ‘written with blood’, he went below the surface of poetry – even where his musical purposes were inevitably distinct from the poet's – in order to recreate it in music of remarkable intensity, written, as he once proclaimed, for epicures, not amateurs." Eric Sams and Susan Youens in Grove online

        The Flowers of Japan and the Art of Floral Arrangement. With illustrations by Japanese artists.

      . Tokyo, Hakubunsha / Yokohama etc., Kelly and Walsh / London, Sampson Low, Marston, & Co., 1891. 35,9 : 26,6 cm. 136 text pages with 26 b/w illustr., 14 full page colour woodblock prints by Yoshitoshi et al, 40 b/w outline plates and colour woodblock illustrated covers.. First edition. - "This beautiful and informative book was the first glimpse most Westerners ever had of the Japanese art of ikebana. - Its author, Josiah Conder, was a British architect invited to Japan at the end of the nineteenth century to help create Japan's first Western-style buildings. Conder remained there for the rest of his life, and his love of the country and its culture inspired him to undertake years of study of Japanese Painting, gardens, and flower arrangement. - Conder's classic text with its eloquent explanation of why certain seasonal flowers should be used, why some are "felicitous" and others "ominous", and how even the simplest-looking arrangement can mean much more than meets the eye has a great deal to say not only about ikebana but about Japan's sense of ceremony and custom. - Richly illustrated throughout, and with sixteen pages of grand color pictures, this new edition of his pioneering work retains the period feel of the original. For modern enthusiasts of ikebana or of more Western-style flower arranging, the book offers a fascinating insight into the sensibilities that helped form the art, In addition, a wealth of written and pictorial information on the various containers used-bamboo tubes, bronze vases, lacquer ware, and baskets-will appeal to those who have an interest in Oriental antiques." (Philadelphia Museum of Art, Library). - Cover slightly stained and edges partly worn, half-title with small tear at upper edge, interior very fine and clean.

        New Light on Dark Africa:

      London: Ward, Lock, and Co.,, 1891.. Being the Narrative of the German Emin Pasha Expedition, Its Journeyings and Adventures Among the Native Tribes of Eastern Equatorial Africa, the Gallas, Massais, Wasukuma, etc., etc., on the Lake Baringo and the Victoria Nyanza. Translated from the German by H. W. Dulcken. Quarto. Original red cloth, titles and vignettes of explorers to spine and front board in gilt, black, white, and grey, black endpapers. Frontispiece portrait with tissue guard, 32 full-page plates by Meisenbach, 48 illustrations in text, and one coloured lithographic folding map in rear pocket. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedown. Binding a little soiled and rubbed, spine gently cocked and sunned, spine ends and corners slightly bumped; a couple of small chips and a short closed tear to bottom margin of map, minor split along one fold. Otherwise an excellent copy. First English-language edition of Die deutschen Emin-Pasha expedition published in 1891 in Munich. Carl Peters (1856-1918) was one of the most prominent German colonialists and explorers in the Bismarckian and Wilhelmine periods. In 1884, after a four-year sojourn in London during which he studied British history and colonial policy, Peters returned to Berlin and founded the Gesellschaft fur Deutsche Kolonisation. Following this, he would visit East Africa four times between 1884 and 1892. Initially, the rationale behind Peters' travels in the region was to establish a German colony. New Light on Dark Africa is the account of the third of Peters' journeys to the region, during which he sought to find Emin Pasha, a German explorer thought to be trapped by Mahdist forces in the province of Egyptian Equatorial Sudan. As a result, in 1889, Peters 'set about organizing an expedition to relieve Emin Pasha... But, like that of rival Henry Morton Stanley, Peters's ulterior motive was the acquisition of new territory and access to the upper waters of the Nile' (Howgego). With newspaper clipping concerning Peters from the Times, 20 November 1899, tipped in on rear flyleaf.
