Inhaltsreiche Korrespondenz mit der Direktion des Deutschen Volkstheaters in Wien über Aufführungen seiner Stücke und auch über nicht zustandegekommene Projekte: "Ich möchte Ihnen wirklich sehr gerne aus Ihren Repertoire-Nöthen helfen, - die wohl auch noch durch die Sorge um die Verwerthung Tyrolt's verschärft werden, - aber nachdem ich mir die Sache beschlafen habe, und wieder und wieder durchgedacht habe, muß ich Ihnen endgültig sagen: es geht nicht! Ich habe Ihnen im April d. J. angemeldet, daß ich Ihnen am 1. July ein Stück liefern werde, unter der ausdrücklichen Bedingung, daß mir die erste Oktoberhälfte zur Premiere freigehalten werde; sie haben mir das bindend zugesagt. Ich habe dann das fertige Werk pünktlich am 1. July abgeliefert, und dabei auf die Vorstellungen Ihres Herrn Müller hin schon zugestanden, daß der Termin in den November verlegt werde, was schon eine Schädigung ernstester Art ist, weil ich dabei mit den kritischen Aufführungen der 12t bis 20ten Wiederholung, die meist für einen ganz großen Erfolg entscheidend sind, in die schwächere Weihnachtszeit hineinkomme. Ich habe in diese Verschiebung mit schwerem Herzen gewilligt - und bereue es jetzt lebhaft, daß ich es that - aber nun wollen Sie mich in die zweite Hälfte des Saison rücken, - und das bedeutet für mich eine materielle Schädigung, die sich nicht nur auf 'Eva', sondern auch auf 'Renaissance' erstrecken würde, - und das, hochverehrter Freund, kann ich mir bei aller warmen Sympathie für das Theater u. für Ihre Person wirklich nicht gefallen lassen [...]" (a. d. Br. v. [Oktober 1896]). - Der Bruder des Schriftstellers Paul Schönthan von Pernwaldt (1853-1905) war seit den siebziger Jahren als jugendlicher Held und Bonvivant auf deutschen Bühnen zu sehen gewesen, wandte sich aber nach dem großen Erfolg seines 1879 in Hamburg uraufgeführten Lustspiels "Das Mädchen aus der Fremde" der Schriftstellerei zu und war fortan als freier Schriftsteller in Berlin, in Blasewitz bei Dresden, seit 1898 in Wien und zuletzt im Allgäu ansässig. Wohl am bekanntesten wurde sein gemeinsam mit seinem Bruder geschriebenes Lustspiel 'Der Raub der Sabinerinnen' (UA 1884), das heute noch unter großem Erfolg zahlreiche Aufführungen erlebt. - Der Br. v. 6.

        Istoria D'Italia

      Pisa - Niccolo Capurro, 1891. Pisa - Niccolo Capurro, 1891 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Nine volumes of Francesco Guicciardini's masterpiece, TheHistory of Italy. Guicciardini (6 March 1483 22 May 1540) was an Italian historian and statesman. A friend and critic of Niccol Machiavelli, he is considered one of the major political writers of the Italian Renaissance. His The History of Italy paved the way for a new style in historiography, with his use of government sources to support arguments and the realistic analysis of the people and events of his time. Written during the last years of his life, this work contains the historian's observations collected over his entire lifetime and was a work intended for posterity. As Gilbert writes: The History of Italy stands apart from all his writings because it was the one work which he wrote not for himself, but for the public. The tenth and final volume contains an essay on Guicciardini's life by Professor Giovanni Rosini, appendices and a lengthy index for the entire set. In the original Italian. With the armorial bookplate of one Charles Porcher to the front pastedown of each volume. Front boards embossed with armorial insignia and the name 'Charles Porcher de Clyffe'. Volumes II to X only, with volume I being absent. Condition: In half calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally, a trifle rubbed with some minorwear to extremities and slightly heavier wear to spines. Front board of volume II detached. Joints of volumes IV, V, VI, VIII, IX an X are starting. Minor loss to backstrip of VIII. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean with only occasional spots or marks. Faint tidemarks to lower margins of volumes IX and X. Overall: GOOD, a nice, bright set..

        In Darkest Africa

      New York - Charles Scribner's Sons, 1891. New York - Charles Scribner's Sons, 1891 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An account of the expedition to rescue Emin Pasha, the governor of Equatoria, by the famous Welsh explorer and journalist Sir Henry Morton Stanley. Second US edition. Sir Henry Morton Stanley, was famous for his exploration of Africa and his search for David Livingstone. Upon finding Livingstone, Stanley allegedly uttered the now-famous greeting, Dr. Livingstone, I presumeIn 1886, Stanley led the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition to rescue Emin Pasha, the governor of Equatoria in the southern Sudan. King Leopold II demanded that Stanley take the longer route, via the Congo river, hoping to acquire more territory and perhaps even Equatoria. After immense hardships and great loss of life, Stanley met Emin in 1888, charted the Ruwenzori Range and Lake Edward, and emerged from the interior with Emin and his surviving followers at the end of 1890. But this expedition tarnished Stanley's name because of the conduct of the other Europeans: British gentlemen and army officers. An army major was shot by a carrier, after behaving with extreme cruelty. James Jameson, heir to an Irish whiskey manufacturer, bought an eleven-year old girl and offered her to cannibals in order to document and sketch how she was cooked and eaten. Stanley only found out when Jameson had died of fever. With forty-five plates throughout and three coloured folding maps tucked into pockets on the rear pastedowns of the books (collated complete). Complete in two volumes. Condition: In decorative green cloth bindings. Externally smart, though with some bumping and marks, with some wear to the heads of the spines.

Pages are bright, with just some light marginal age-toning and the odd spot. Some closed tears to the maps. Generally a very bright copy of a notoriously hard book to find in acceptable conition.

      Smith Elder & Co. , 1891. Smith Elder & Co. , 1891. First edition, first issue with integral title page. Original publisher's green morocco grained cloth, titled in gilt to the spine and black to the upper cover. With two page terminal adverts in volume I as called for by Sadlier. A superb, fine set, bright and crisp with just the most trivial wear to the spine tips and some hairline splits to the hinges. Overall an exceptional set. Regarded as the author's best and most influential work, it highlights the threats and opportunities of mass culture in late Victorian London. The novel has strong autobiographical elements. Edwin Reardon, a gifted scholar, finds some success as a writer, but is determined not to bow down to the pressure of commercialism. His pursuit of the moral and literary high ground and the financial difficulties it leads to is juxtaposed with those who are happy to follow the paths of commercialism and greed and who appear to derive greater success. Issued in an edition of only 750 copies, about half of which were sold to circulating libraries, it is rare encountered in commerce in original cloth, especially in such exemplary condition.

      Cassell , 1891. Cassell , 1891. First edition. Three volumes, all in original cinnamon cloth lettered in gilt on the spines. A near fine set, with the hinges of vols II and III showing a little wear and a couple of trivial marks to the covers, but a generally bright crisp set. Housed in a quarter morocco box. Regarded, critically speaking, as Barrie's best work of literature, this melodramatic work was a great success on publication, vying with Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles for the year's most hotly read and discussed new novel. It was adapted for the stage in 1897 and filmed on several occasions, most notably in 1934 staring Katherine Hepburn. Set in rural 1840s Scotland, the plot focuses class and social issues. The setting is based on Barrie's place of birth, Kirriemuir. Sadlier 167
