        La conquête du pain. Préface par Élisée Reclus.

      Paris, Tresse & Stock, 1892. Small 8vo. Original printed red wrappers. A few tears and nicks to extremities. The extremely fragile spine miraculously preserved, very neatly restored. A very fine, completely uncut copy. XV, (1), 297, (1) pp. + (1, contents) f.. The very rare first edition of Kropotkin's main work, "The Conquest of Bread", the great constructivist work of the libertarian tradition and the greatest modern work of anarchism. By 1880, Kropotkin had broken with the Bakunist idea of remuneration for labour in the post-revolutionary society. While Bakunin and the Federalist wing of the First International suggested a period of economic transition between Capitalism and Libertarian Communism, Kropotkin believed it necessary to leap from one to the other, from day one of the revolution. Any retention of the wages system in whatever form, such as labour cheques or time coupons, would only result in further exploitation and injustice. The revolution has to consist in the belief that all things are the common inheritance of humanity and should also be held in common; therefore, Kropotkin states in his magnu opus, collectivists merely tinker with the wages system in stead of destroying it, and the only way forward is to get rid of it completely. Kroptkin's groundbreaking "The Conquest of Bread" constitutes a work of anarcho-communist economics and history rather than a mere text book on revolutionary organization. "[I]n "The Conquest of Bread", [h]e doesn't seem to see anarchism as a political ideology on a par with, say Marxism, but rather he sees it as a constantly present tendency within human groups. Anarchism, then, is more of an anthropological category than a political one for Kropotkin... He highlights events from the French revolution where associations of labourers sprang up to till the soil together. He looks at aspects of Russian and Swiss peasant communal land use as well as the English lifeboat crews who voluntarily aid seamen in distress. This is where Kropotkin's real worth is - in the field of history and ethics. Of course some of his historical conclusions can be criticised: medieval cities were not as democratic and peaceful as he would have us believe. But he did illuminate an aspect of human history which had been completely neglected. Academics of the nineteenth century were heavily under the influence of neo-Darwinist ideas which sought to justify both capitalism and imperialism. Kropotkin was one of the very first to attempt to refute the 'survival of the fittest' idea. The basic point that humanity has made most progress under conditions of co-operation runs through the length and breadth of "The Conquest of Bread".The book contains much of interest for present day libertarians. Kropotkin touches on "integral education", agricultural production in cities, international trade, the decentralisation of industry and much else of importance currently. It is, to reiterate, one of the great constructivist anarchist works". (Gary Heyter, A Review of Kropotkin's "The Conquest of Bread"). Prince Pyotr Alexeyevich Kropotkin (1842 -1921) was a Russian activist, scientist, and philosopher, who advocated decentralized government and anarchism. Kropotkin was a proponent of a communist society free from central government and based on voluntary associations between workers. He wrote many books, pamphlets and articles, the most prominent being his groundbreaking "The Conquest of Bread" from 1892. He also contributed the article on anarchism to the Encyclopædia Britannica Eleventh Edition."The Conquest Of Bread" first appeared in Paris in 1892, after having been serialized in the anarchist journals "La Révolté" and "Le Révolte". After the appearance of the book, it became extremely influential and was serialized again, though only in part, between 1892 and 1894 in the London journal "Freedom". It quickly reached an extremely large audience and was translated an reprinted numerous times. It was translated into Norwegian already in 1898, and in Japanese in 1909."The Conquest of bread" came to play an enormous role in the modern development of anarchism and is the most significant modern work of the libertarian tradition

        Quattro figurini originali, ad acquarello, del pittore e illustratore Alfredo Edel, due con firma autografa dell'artista.

      1892 - Serie assai gradevole di quattro figurini originali, ad acquarello policromo, realizzati di pugno del celebre costumista. Formato cm.40,5x15,5. Due dei disegni, con firma autografa "A del Edel 92", presentano al verso dettagliate notazioni manoscritte circa la realizzazione dei costume dei due personaggi femminili, Colombina e Perrette. Gli altri due bozzetti chiaramente riferiti allo stesso progetto, non sono firmati. Insieme di grande delicatezza ed efficacia. "Alfredo Leonardo Edel, semplicemente conosciuto come Alfredo Edel (Colorno, 15 maggio 1856 ? Boulogne-sur-Seine, 16 dicembre 1912), pittore, costumista e illustratore, nacque nei pressi di Parma proveniente da una famiglia di origine alsaziana. Alcuni membri della sua famiglia erano artisti: il padre Leopoldo era un pittore dilettante, il fratello Vittorino un figurinista e la sorella Adele dipingeva professionalmente, ma soprattutto la famiglia si vantava della discendenza da Giuseppe Naudin, celebre miniaturista, maestro di pittura della duchessa di Parma Maria Luigia d'Austria, divenuto in seguito alla fine del Ducato di Parma, regio pittore di Vittorio Emanuele II. Ebbe una brillante carriera artistica ricca di riconoscimenti sia come pittore ed illustratore e soprattutto come costumista teatrale della Scala di Milano dal 1880 al 1890. Collaborò con i maggiori teatri d'Europa, essendo un'artista estroso e creativo, considerato tra gli innovatori del teatro italiano di fine secolo. La sua attività variava dalla lirica ("Otello" di Verdi, 1887; "La Bohème" di Puccini, 1897; "Veritas et Amor" di Pizzi, 1904; "Don Carlos" di Verdi, 1912), balletti ("Excelsior", 1881; "Sport", 1899; "Rosa d'amore", 1900; "Bacco" e "Gambrinus", 1905), circo ("Barnum", 1889-90), pantomime ("Little Bo Peep" e "Robinson Crusoe", Londra 1892) e alla extravaganza ("Neptune's Daughter", Londra 1906). Muore a Boulogne-sur-Seine vicino a Parigi il 16 dicembre 1912 ed è sepolto nel cimitero locale" (da Wikipedia). la serie di 4 bozzetti. 200 gr.

Ohm (1789-1854), physicien allemand a découvert l'existence d'une relation de proportionnalité directe entre la différence de potentiel appliquée aux bornes d'un conducteur et le courant électrique qui le traverse, ce qu'on appelle maintenant la "loi d'Ohm". Ces résultats expérimentaux lui ont permis de déterminer les relations fondamentales entre courant, tension et résistance électrique, ce qui constitue le début de l'analyse des circuits électriques. Ses remarquables travaux ont porté pour la plupart sur des questions de physique mathématique. En électricité, on lui doit une généralisation de la loi d'Ohm, des études sur la distribution de l'électricité sur deux corps en présence, et sur la décharge de la bouteille de Leyde, une détermination de la constante des courants d'induction. Ouvrage illustré d'un frontispice en héliogravure représentant un buste de l'auteur, avec de nombreuses formules et figures géométriques dans le texte.

        Autograph letter signed in full to arts administrator Richard Sternfeld

      - 3 pp. of a bifolium. 8vo (175 x 110 mm.). Dated Döbling [now part of Vienna], November 4, 1892. In black ink. In German (with translation). Wolf asks Sternfeld (who is not named in the letter but may be identified by circumstantial evidence) about the "popular concerts" series in Berlin, which Sternfeld had suggested as a venue for showcasing Wolf's music. He doubts whether the setting of these concerts was suited to the purpose:"Would you please, most esteemed [Sir], be so kind as to reveal to me the character of the so-called popular concerts in Berlin? Are your popular concerts such at which [the audience] is eating, drinking, and smoking? Of course such concerts would prohibit the performance of vocal music, and when you proposed a popular concert to me, you intended to perform my instrumental works only. In such a case a popular concert would not serve me well because, as you know, my specialty is vocal music. However, should it be otherwise and should the said concerts also include vocal music then I would of course prefer such a popular concert to one at the Singakademie, if only to save money. It also would appear that these popular concerts are held in the hall of the Philharmonic, which should not be underestimated."Creased at horizontal fold; short split to lower portion of central fold. "[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 Music Online.Richard Sternfeld (1858-1924) was a prominent arts administrator in Berlin at the time. A board member of the Wagner-Verein, he organized several performances of Wolf's works. The Berlin concert Wolf was planning at the time finally took place on January 8, 1894?but not as a "popular" concert. Siegfried Ochs, director of the Philharmonischer Chor, conducted some of Wolf';s choral-orchestral works.

      George Newnes, London 1892 - Doyle, A(rthur) Conan. THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES. London: George Newnes, 1892. FIRST EDITION, first issue (without the words "Southampton Street" on the front cover street sign). A VERY FINE COPY for this title, remarkably bright with its cloth unrubbed and its gilt virtually unblemished, in original publisher's light blue cloth over beveled boards, spine blocked and lettered in gilt and black, all edges gilt. The free endpapers are just lightly browned. With all one-hundred-and-four of Sidney Paget's famous illustrations. The notoriously fragile inner hinges show only the slightest separation of paper with no cracking or breaking. Although Sherlock Holmes first appeared in the initially unheralded novels A Study In Scarlet and The Sign Of Four, it was the wildly enthusiastic reception of this volume which, once and for all, made famous the most enduring fictional character of the Victorian era. THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES contains the first twelve of the fifty-six Sherlock Holmes stories eventually collected, including several of his most famous: "A Scandal In Bohemia," "The Five Orange Pips," The Man With The Twisted Lip," and "The Adventure of the Speckled Band." This is a CONDITION-CENSUS COPY; in 25 years, we've seen only two other examples in equally brilliant condition (and they both had dust jackets). Green & Gibson A10a. Housed in a wine-red vintage quarter-morocco slipcase. [TOGETHER WITH:] Doyle, A(rthur) Conan. THE MEMOIRS OF SHERLOCK HOLMES. Illustrations by Sidney Paget. London: George Newnes, 1894. First Edition. AN EXCEEDINGLY FINE and remarkably bright copy in original publisher's dark blue cloth over beveled boards, spine blocked and lettered in gilt and black, all edges gilt. There is only the slightest touch of rub to the extremities, the free endpapers are just lightly browned, inner hinges expertly and invisibly restored to perfection, some minimal foxing. The ninety illustrations by Sidney Paget include the famous frontispiece: "The Death Of Sherlock Holmes. THE MEMOIRS OF SHERLOCK HOLMES contain Doyle's second set of twelve Sherlock Holmes short-stories, including "The Final Problem" which introduces Holmes' arch-enemy, Professor Moriarty. We've seen countless copies of this title in poor to average condition. This is about as good as it gets. Green & Gibson A10a. Housed in a wine-red vintage quarter-morocco slipcase.

        Divan Japonais.

      Poster for the Divan Japonais cabaret. Paris: Ancourt 1892. Published in "Les Maitres de l'Affiche", 1896. Plate no. 2.. Les Maîtres de l'Affiche (The Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 colour lithographic plates used to create a very significant art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art.By the 1890's the streets of French cities were enlivened by large, colourful posters. The poster had not only caught the fancy of the public, but its best examples were already being regarded as true works of art (specifically, as fine prints) to be exhibited, reviewed in journals, collected and reproduced in a more manageable form. In the last five years of the 19th century, Imprimerie Chaix was to play a great part in codifying, hallowing and perpetuating the ebullient spirit of the Belle Epoque. The renowned set of 256 prints were created by Imprimerie Chaix, forever to be known as a set as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche. Each print was rendered as a separate sheet measuring 11 x 15 inches. [27.9 x 38.1 cm]. The set was compiled in a unique way: Every month for 60 months - from December 1895 through November 1900 - subscribers received a wrapper containing four consecutively numbered prints. On 16 occasions (each of the five Decembers, each of the Junes, and the March and September of the final three years) the monthly wrapper also contained a bonus plate, not a poster reproduction but a specially created lithograph. The compilation of this set of original prints makes up the complete suite known as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche

The edition was very restricted, probably to about 200 copies, by the publisher of the most important French symbolists. Later editions, of which there were many, were substantially altered. @Provenance: On Carolina [Wilhelme] Michaëlis de Vasconcelos (Berlin, 1851-Porto, 1925), philologist, literary critic and university professor, wife of Joaquim de Vasconcelos, who in her youth had frequented the homes of the families of Jacob Grimm, Alexander von Humboldt, and Varnhagen von Ense, among others, see Teresa Araújo in Machado, ed., @Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, pp. 483-4; Maria Manuela Gouveia Delille in @Biblos, V, 615-20; and @Grande encyclopédia XVII, 161-3.

      Chicago, Published By The Ritual Committee 1892 - Period Limp Leather binding (ironically with David Einhorn listed on the front cover as the author!), 12mo, 260, 140 pages.The scarce true first edition, quickly recalled after publication by the Reform movement because of opposition led by the Einhorn wing. "Rabbi Wise's intent notwithstanding, Minhag America was not universally accepted. Neither was the first draft of the Union Prayer Book (UPB), the prayer book which the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) planned to publish based on Minhag America. For by the time the CCAR was ready to release the Union Prayer Book in 1892, a more radically Reform wing, led by Rabbi David Einhorn of Baltimore, had the votes to change the CCAR's direction away from its centrist origins. The 1892 version of the UPB was actually recalled, at considerable expense; its replacement, published in 1895 as the ‘first edition’ of theUnion Prayer Book, was more in keeping with the tenets of Classical Reform" (Stevens, in Reform Judaism, 2006)].
