        Falstaff. Facsimile of the autograph musical manuscript full score

      Milano G. Ricordi 1893. Folio. Quarter dark blue morocco with blue cloth boards, facsimile of Verdi's autograph signature to upper. 1f. (title), 394 pp. + 1f. (colophon). Binding very slightly worn.. A limited edition, this no. 269 of 500 copies. Scarce. Verdi's final opera, Falstaff is a commedia lirica in three acts to a libretto by arrigo Boito after William Shakespeare's plays The Merry Wives of Windsor and King Henry IV. It was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on February 9, 1893. Few would deny how richly Verdi deserved this final triumph, or how heartening a message Falstaff offers. The opera leaves us with a musical image that exactly reflects those famous photographs of Verdi in his last years: an old man, in black hat, with eyes that have lived through a lifetime of struggle, smiling out wisely at the world."

        THE SECRET COMMONWEALTH OF ELVES, FAUNS, & FAIRIES. A Study in Folk-Lore & Psychical Research. The Text by Robert Kirk, M.A., Minister of Aberfoyle, A.D. 1601. The Comment by Andrew Lang, M.A., A.D. 1893

      London: Published by David Nutt, in the Strand., 1893.. First Edition Thus. Octavo, original paper wrappers, french folded Japanese vellum wrappers. Printed on hand-made paper. lxv + 92 pp + [2] pp ads at rear. Lithographic frontispiece by Lockhart Bogle. 550 copies printed, of which 500 were for sale. Issued as Volume 8 in the Bibliotheque de Carabas" series. A slip of paper attached to the front free endpaper is inscribed "With Mr. A. Lang's Compliments". A note in pencil beneath this states "Not Lang's writing"; perhaps this was a secretarial presentation. A bookplate on the front paste-down states "From the Library of Sir Edward Burnett Tylor, Knt., D.C.L., ZF.R.S., The first Header and Professor of Anthropology at the University of Oxford. resented to the Radcliffe Trustees by Dame Anna Rebecca Tylor, June 1917. A stamp beneath this from the Bodlean Library states "Bodl - Libr Duplicate Sold by Authority". Library pocket on rear endpaper, and evidence of a small label removed from the adjacent leaf, light wear and browning to the fragile wrappers; a very good copy. ¶ One of the rarer works dealing with Scottish beliefs in Elves and Fairies, second sight and psychic phenomena. Robert Kirk, Minister of Aberfoyle, wrote this work in 1691 but it was not published until 1815, when an edition of but 100 copies was issued. That edition is of the greatest rarity, and this new edition, which contains a long Introduction by Andrew Lang, is also of considerable scarcity, due to its small limitation and the delicate binding format. An important copy, being Sir Edward Burnett Tylor's copy. Sir Edward Tylor (1832-1917) was an English cultural anthropologist, the author of many important works including the two-volume work 'Primative Culture: Researches into the Development of Mythology, Philosophy, Religion, Language, Art and Customs" (1871).

        The £1,000,000 Bank-Note

      London: Chatto & Windus, , 1893. And other new stories. Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt and black, front board lettered and decorated in black, publisher's device to rear board in black, buff floral endpapers. Housed in a custom green quarter morocco solander box. Spine lightly faded, cloth on front board bubbling slightly, upper hinge starting, minor foxing to edges; a very good, bright copy. First UK edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to the German novelist and actress, Wilhelmine von Hillern: "To Frau von Hillern, from one who has read with pleasure and profoundly admires 'Geier Wally.' Mark Twain, Kronkenheit-Tölz, August 1893. Now I've gone and left the 'Die' out! But I was born careless (dumm-geboren). - S.L.C." Von Hillern's novel Die Geier-Wally was a story of female emancipation based on the life of the Austrian painter from North Tyrol, Anna Stainer Knittel (1841-1915). Knittel was the original Geier-Wally (or Eagle Wally) ?" a woman with qualities usually associated with the most fearless of men. Von Hillern immortalised Knittel's feat of roping herself down a rock face to clear out an eagle's eyrie, taking the eaglets and selling them at a fair. The popular story was translated into 11 languages, six films, a musical and an opera. In a letter to Chatto and Windus dated 5 August 1893 (held at Lilly Library, Indiana University), Clemens lists his return address as Kurhotel, Kronkenheit-Tölz, Bavaria. Clemens's lifelong interest in the German language began during his childhood in Hannibal, taking lessons from a shoemaker. In the late 1880s he composed the play Meistershaft in a mixture of German and English, and his translation of Heinrich Hoffman's Struwwelpeter was published posthumously in 1935 as Slovenly Peter. The £1,000,000 Bank Note and other new stories was originally published in the US earlier the same year.

        1893 Max Klinger Secession Etching and Aquatint on Paper

      1893 - This piece, created by Max Klinger in 1893, features a woman with her right arm raised above her head, looking directly out at the viewer. It is a strong pose, and a companion to the word "Secession", written across the top of the piece in large letters. The image measures 11 1/2" x 9 3/4"; with the blank margins, the paper is 19" x 13" overall. The Secession movements took hold in several European cities at the end of the nineteenth century, breaking away from more traditional academic art to embrace more progressive styles, and Max Klinger was a strong supporter and member of the movement in both Munich (formed in 1892) and, more famously, Vienna (formed 1897). Max Klinger (1857-1920) was a German sculptor, printmaker, and painter. In addition to the Secession movements at the turn of the twentieth century, he is associated with the Symbolist movement of the latter half of the nineteenth century. The paper is lightly toned, and there is one very small spot near the lower edge of the paper in the blank margin; otherwise excellent.

        THE WORKS OF WILLIAM BLAKE POETIC, SYMBOLIC, AND CRITICAL ... WITH LITHOGRAPHS OF THE ILLUSTRATED 'PROPHETIC BOOKS,' AND A MEMOIR AND INTERPRETATION

      London: Bernard Quaritch, 1893.. Three volumes. Large, thick octavo. Original green cloth, spines and upper covers elaborately decorated in pictorial gilt after designs by Blake, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Portrait, facsimiles, and plates. Spines somewhat rubbed and dull, some shelfwear to joints and lower edges and bumps and wear to fore-tips, endsheets a bit foxed and cloth a bit handsoiled, some cracking and subtle repairs to inner hinges; still, not a wholly disagreeable set of a work particularly susceptible to such issues. First edition. One of five hundred sets comprising the regular paper issue. Controversial in its interpretation of Blake's texts, this work nonetheless remains, in this issue and binding, something of a landmark of 1890s book production. "The enthusiasm and comprehensiveness of this work are of considerable historical importance" - Bentley. Wade quotes Yeats's inscription in his own copy about the nature of this collaboration: "The writing of this book is mainly Ellis's, the thinking is as much mine as his. The biography is by him. He re-wrote and trebled in size a biography of mine. The greater part of the 'symbolic system' is my writing; the rest of the book was written by Ellis working over short accounts of the books by me, except in the case of the 'literary period' the account of the minor poems, & the account of Blake's art theories which are all his own except in so far as we discussed everything together...."

        Collection of four items related to Coxey's Army and the 1894 March on Washington

      V.p., 1893-1894. First Edition. All items relating to the first (1894) "Coxey's Army," originally called the "Army of the Commonwealth of Christ," the first protest march on Washington, organized by Ohio businessman Jacob Coxey in reaction to the rise in unemployment caused by the Panic of 1893. The march officially started in Coxey's hometown of Massillon, Ohio, and travelled through Pennsylvania, the Virginias, and Maryland; the Western branch of the army, given the name "Kelly's Army" after the California "General" Charles T. Kelly, while more militant, had a much longer way to go, with many of the participants not making it past the Ohio River. Nevertheless, it has been argued that Coxey's Army signalled the birth of the American hobo, as many of the members of the Army continued a life of vagrancy well after the march had ended. This and Coxey's subsequent 1914 march both ultimately failed, as numbers of participants and public interest dwindled. 1. Coxey, Jacob. How To Revive Business, Provide Work for the Idle, Give the United States Good Country Roads, and Make All Other Public Improvements [drop title]. [Massillon, Ohio: J.S. Coxey, 1893.] Petition broadside (32x32.5cm.); cleanly and horizontally split along previous fold, shallow chips and tears and one larger loss to top left-hand corner, additional clean tears throughout affecting text without loss of meaning. Early petition "Enthusiastically Endorsed by the American Federation of Labor, in National Convention, Chicago, Ill., December 15, 1893." Addressed to the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the President of the United States during the economic Panic of 1893, calling for the creation of jobs through the building of roads and other public works. The bottom three-quarters of the broadside devoted to a three-column list for endorsers' names, addresses, and occupations (though this copy remains blank). At bottom edge is rubber-stamped: "Don't write on other side. Paste on more paper and get more names. / Return to J.S. Coxey, [illegible, but Massillon], Ohio." Not in OCLC. 2. Arlington, Dick. Coxey's Commonweal. N.p., ca. 1894. Broadside (30x15.5cm.); large loss to top edge not affecting text, additional minor wear from handling, previous folds. Lyrics to a song of 52 lines composed by Arlington, "Actor and Author, Marshall No. 1, of Coxey's Army," including the chorus: "God bless our noble fifes, / Whose music cheers our hearts, / Tho' we're cold, and weak and weary, / His sweet music makes us cheery, / And courage to our weary souls imparts." Does not seem to have been reprinted elsewhere; broadside not in OCLC. 3. Shepard, Henry, Commander. Industrial Army News, Vol. 1, no. 1, April 20, 1894. Seattle: Industrial Army News, 1894. Folio (51cm.) bifolium newspaper printed on stiff yellow stock, text in five columns, illustrated advertisements throughout. Substantial tear across pp. [1-2] affecting text without loss of meaning, old crude tape repair, hinge reinforced with paper; nevertheless stock surprisingly bright and fresh. The only issue of this newspaper, published by one of the more militant Pacific Northwestern Coxeyite "Armies," issued the day before William Hogan and 500 followers commandeered a Northern Pacific Railway train for the trip to Washington, although they were eventually apprehended by federal troups in Forsyth, Montana. An interesting piece, chiefly comprised of local advertisements, some of whose copy refer to the upcoming march on Washington ("Before Starting Out on Your March To Washington Call at the San Francsico Shoe Co."; "When We Get to Washington We will tell them all about the 'Queen' and '1888' Hams and and Bacon That we Eat when we are at Home"). Washington only in OCLC. 4. Browne, Carl, & J[acob] S. Coxey. Christ Is Our Leader. The Commonweal Rallying Song. [Massillon, OH?, 1894?] Broadsheet (43x22cm.); illus. Edges rather ragged with loss at top left-hand corner; archival repair to lower left-hand corner without loss; uniformly toned, a few small ink splatters. Lyrics to five "Commonweal" songs, including "March on Washington, or, The Unemployed Men's Appeal"; "Interest Bearing Bonds Must Go"; "General Invitation Song to Join the Commonweal"; and "After the Commonweal March Is O'er," all but the last adapted by Browne for Coxey's Army printed on broadsheet recto. "Bulletin No. 4 of the J.S. Coxey Good Roads Association of the United States," with a note by Coxey and "General Orders" by Browne printed on verso. Reproduction of a hand-drawn map titled "Map of the J.S. Coxey Good Roads Commonweal (Procession) from Massillon, Ohio, to Washington D.C." and nine hand-drawn Commonweal badges adorn the bottom half of verso. Brown only in OCLC.

      1893. first edition. Hand Colored by Miss Gloria CardewROSSETTI, Christina. HOUSEMAN, Laurence, illustrator. Goblin Market. London: Macmillan & Co., 1893. First edition, hand colored issue. Tall octavo (7 3/16 x 4 1/16 inches; 182 x 105 mm.). [iv], 64 pp. Illustrated title-page, twelve full-page illustrations and numerous line drawings by Laurence Housman. This copy being one of a very few with hand coloring by Gloria Cardew, with Cardew's printed label on verso of front free-endpaper "The Illustrations in this Book were coloured by hand by Miss Gloria Cardew". Original green cloth, covers elaborately decorated and titled in gilt, spine ruled and titled in gilt, all edges gilt. Armorial bookplate of Ella Park and George Appleton Lawrence on front paste-down. Boards slightly cocked otherwise a very fine copy. Protected by a (lightly waterstained) blue silk wrapper, most likely made by Gloria Cardew.One of Housman's earliest forays into book illustration and probably the work for which he is best known. The images are reminiscent of the poem's previous illustrator, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, but with their fresh approach have perhaps become those illustrations most associated with this poem. This copy specially adorned by the hand colouring of Gloria Cardew, a pre-eminent hand colourist, frequently employed by the Women Guild of Bookbinders.

Glasgow: Maclehose, 1893. 225 145 mm. Original cloth, worn but sound, corners a little bent. Minor dust-soiling and fraying, but very good. Advertisement for Macewen's Atlas of Head Sections tipped to the front free endpaper. (2) Atlas of head sections. 4to. xiii pp., 53 copperplate engravings each with separate printed outline key, 4pp. (index). Glasgow: Maclehose, 1893. 280 x 220 mm. Original cloth. Minor foxing, otherwise fine. Signature of British surgeon George Grey Turner (1877-1951) on the front free endpaper. First Editions. Garrison-Morton 4872, 431 (Atlas). Cushing considered Macewen the "chief pioneer in craniocerebral surgery." His experience with meningitis, abscess of the brain and infective sinus thrombosis was summarized in his seminal Pyogenic Infective Diseases of the Brain and Spinal Cord of 1893, which gave sixty-five detailed cases together with operative procedures. His Atlas of Head Sections, published the same year, was intended to supplement and illustrate Pyogenic Infective Dseases. This copy of the Atlas was once owned by British surgeon George Grey Turner, for whom "Turner's sign"--local areas of bruising and induration of the skin about the navel and loins in hemorrhagic pancreatitis--is named.

        Proverbs in Porcelain

      1893. Finely Illustrated and Handsomely BoundDOBSON, Austin. PARTRIDGE, Bernard, illustrator. RAMAGE, John, binder. Proverbs in Porcelain to which is added "Au Revoir" A Dramatic Vignette. London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner, & Co. Ltd., 1893. Octavo (7 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches; 197 x 140 mm.). 110, [110-113 notes], [114 blank], [115 colophon], [1 blank]. Twenty-five charming full-page illustrations by Bernard Partridge. Bound by Ramage (stamp signed on front turn-in) ca. 1893 in full red hard-grain morocco. Covers with rectangular gilt borders, each corner with a decoratively inlaid blue morocco fan design. Spine with four raised bands, lettered in gilt and with a similar inlaid fan design in the center, gilt board edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, original maroon cloth wrappers and spine bound in at end. A fine copy."The six "Proverbs in Porcelain," here reprinted from "Old-World Idylls," were first published in 1877 in a collection of miscellaneous verse. To these is now added, as belonging, if not to the same series, at least to the same species, the dramatic vignette called "Au Revoir," from "At the Sign of the Lyre." I confess that I felt some misgiving whether these miniature studies, so frail in structure, so slight in substance, would lend themselves readily to pictorial embodiment. But thus was clearly to reckon without vitalising power of Art, and the accomplished pencil of Mr. Bernard Partridge."(Austin Dobson, Prefatory note).Contents:PrologueBallad á-la-ModeThe MetamorphosisThe Song out of SeasonThe Cap that fitsThe Secrets of the HeartGood Night, Babette!EpilogueAu Revoir - A Dramatic VignetteNotesJohn Bernard Partridge (1861-1945) was a London born English illustrator. In 1891 he joined the staff of Punch and, in 1910, became its chief cartoonist, replacing Edward Linley Sambourne. During his time at Punch, Partridge published several cartoons showing his support for the Suffragist movement. He was elected a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours and of The Pastel Society. In 1915, he designed World War I posters, some of which are now held at the State Library of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia, including Take up the Sword of Justice. Many of his portraits are exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London.Austin Dobson (1840-1921) was an English Poet and essayist.

Bound in near contemporary three-quarters green morocco and marbled boards, t.e.g. by Maclehose, Glasgow, t.e.g.,Minor foxing and fading to spine., else fine, Bookplate of Gordon Cameron Muir. "A strong and active man, Dunmore travelled in many parts of the world, including Africa and the Arctic, but his principal journey was made in 1892 through Kashmir, western Tibet, Chinese Tartary, and Russian central Asia. He started from Rawalpindi in April 1892, reached Kashgar in Chinese Turkestan in December 1892, and continued west through Ferghana and Transcaspia, reaching Samarkand in January 1893. He had ridden and walked 2500 miles, traversing forty-one mountain passes and sixty-nine rivers. His account of the journey, The Pamirs (1893), was a pleasant travel book, but of no great scientific or geographical value, and was not flatteringly reviewed in the professional press. His novel Ormisdale was also published in 1893."ODNB.

        "The Diary of a Sojourn of eight Fields in South Devon. From July 29th, to September 14th 1893 ? (Written at Ringmore, from which this is) Copied verbatim (except spelling), by B.D.F"

      The Lower Farm, Ringmore, near Kingsbrige, South Devon, 1893. A manuscript journal, fair copy. Original watercolor drawing of "Lower Farm" bound in as frontispiece. [i-iv], 1-132 pp. pen and ink. 8vo. Bound to style using contemporary materials, green half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, small lettering-piece to spine (some scuffing and rubbing). The Field Family on Holiday A charming and quite accomplished record of a six-week stay in a farm house in South Devon: the narrative draws on reports of the day from five of the eight Field siblings (all of whom are listed on the title-page). The remaining three Fields were apparently too young (Cyril, "Baby" and "Daisy"). Also included is some quite poignant poetry, and the journal as a whole captures the joy of a carefree holiday in a late Victorian English summer when it never rained (it did) and the blackberries went on forever (they did). The journal was collated, edited and written out by Beatrice as a Christmas present for her two sisters, and recalls the countryside, the house, the people, the walks, lawn tennis games, the church, local towns and villages, "bathing," shrimping, and "messing about." Unusually, the family (who travelled by train from near Reading in Berkshire) does not seem to have been accompanied by either of their parents, although Beatrice who was the eldest did have her 21st birthday during the sojourn. She appears to have been in charge. The majority of the entries are from Beatrice: she has something to report on 37 of the 48 days of the sojourn. Blanche and Margaret left early (on the 28th of August) but they each contributed substantially (with 10 and 9 entries respectively). Durrant provided 3 entries, and Arthur 7. The local vicar, the Rev. Francis Hingeston-Randolph (1833-1910) was a quite distinguished writer and his family provided suitable friends. There are other friends and acquaintances, but the Randolphs figure most prominently, and there is a hint of romance between Beatrice and Charlie, one of Rev. Randolph's sons - the final entry ("Written between Ivybridge & Totnes ... Written on the train") concludes "Charlie & I gazed & waved till the last - Farewell." It is interesting to note that the house, re-named slightly 'Lower Manor Farm,' is still available to rent (over 2000 GBP per week in August!).

        Autograph letter signed.

      Naulakha, Brattleboro, Vermont, 20. XII. 1893. - 8vo. 2 pp. To the American author William H. Rideing (1853-1918): "[.] I am in receipt of yours of the 18th instant suggesting a 2000-2500 w[ord] article for the Companion. Now that I have seen some of the mothers of the youths who read the paper I may perhaps be able to come nearer to its demands. It is very difficult for me to invent notions but I find in my notebooks the story of a young apprentice in the repairing shops of the E.I.R. [East Indian Railways] our Great Indian railroad. We will suppose he is 18 or 19 - sketch the life of the railway community and a railway town in India (Bengal) and make him mend and bring in, on one piston, a broken down loco. in flood time, as he is travelling to a volunteer rifle match. The tale would introduce the country-bred white of the Indian RR's - a parsee engine driver and so on - all the difference that there is between an American + an Indian line. I should prefer 3500 w[ords] to turn in but if you find that does not meet your approval kindly let me know and we will try something else. I used to know something of our Indian railway line. It’s community apart. Very many thanks for Sir E[dwin] Arnolds Jungle Life series. I am doing a set of tales on the same subject more or less for St Nicholas, giving the Jungle people’s views of mankind [.]". - Kipling's works of fiction include "The Jungle Book" (a collection of stories which includes "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi"), the "Just So Stories" (1902), "Kim" (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are enduring classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift". Kipling was one of the most popular writers in England, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date.

        Pre-publication specimen leaf for the opening lines of the Canterbury Tales

      Hammersmith: The Kelmscott Press, 1893. Printed on both sides of the leaf, 42 x 29 cms, one or two short marginal nicks and tears, slight offsetting on the verso (probably from the backing of an old frame); ?'specimen?' printed in red in block capitals in the lower margin. One of a small number of proof or specimen leaves of one of the most celebrated examples of typography in English, circulated in advance of publication: ?"A specimen of the first page (differing slightlyfrom the same page as it appears in the book) was shown at the Arts and Crafts Exhibition in October and November, 1893, and was issued to a few leading booksellers…?" (see Morris, ?'The Art and Craft of Printing?', 1902). The only other example which we are aware of was issued as a bifolium (ie the first four pages of text, rather than two) and does not have ?'specimen?' printed in the lower margin, but there may have been some variants. The setting of the text is identical, with seven lines of text under the 19-line initial word ?'Whan?'; Morris evidently considered that there was not enough space between the initial and the printed border and reduced it to six in the published version; our leaf represents the first tantalising glimpse Burne-Jones and Morris would have enjoyed of their last great project together.

      London: [R. Folkard and Son, for] Elkin Mathews and John Lane, 1893. First Edition of Gray's First Book, Number 83 of 250 copies on Van Gelder paper bound in cloth (of an entire edition of 275). 1 vols. Slender 8vo. Publisher's green cloth elaborately gilt, with an all-over pattern in gilt of wavy lines strewn with leaves and interrupted only by a tiny panel in the upper left corner for the title, designed by Charles Ricketts with his monogram "CR" in lower left and Leighton's monogram "HLs" in the lower right. Laid endpapers, top edges trimmed and plain, other edges untrimmed. Wear to spine ends and corners. Bookplate of the Merrymount Press. First Edition of Gray's First Book, Number 83 of 250 copies on Van Gelder paper bound in cloth (of an entire edition of 275). 1 vols. Slender 8vo. Calloway calls this binding "the most inventive of Ricketts' books to date and, in its distinguished effect produced with such economy of means, his most sophisticated. The tall, narrow format was based on the Persian 'saddle-book,' reflecting both the 'exquisite' quality of the poetry and the more practical consideration that a favourite book of poems should be easy to carry in the pocket. The text was set throughout in italic type with simple initials for which, in Ricketts' words, 'the model . . . was one of those rare Aldus italic volumes with its margins uncut.' The total effect is one of elegant proportion and lightness, perfectly recalling the Venetian original.".

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Stuttgart, 21. VIII. 1893. - 1½ SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 8vo. Auf Briefpapier der "Redaktion der Neuen Musik-Zeitung". "Sehr geehrter Herr! Es war eigentlich indiscret von mir dass ich Ihnen den Brief Heubergers schickte, allein ich wollte Sie mit Eifer erfüllen zum Verfassen einer in 3-4 Fortsetzungen zu haltenden Abhandlung über den Charakter Schuberts u. über dessen Beziehungen zu bedeutenden Zeitgenossen, darunter Grillparzer. Nebenher streifen Sie das von H. Beanstandete; namentlich erweisen Sie durch Hinblicke auf Briefe, dass Schubert als Componist selbständig bleiben wollte. Sie können sich ausführlich gehen lassen, Anekdoten u. Aussprüche Schs. einstreuen, kurz beweisen, dass Sie mehr von der Sache verstehen als H. Diesem schrieb ich scharf, da er inseinem Übermute auch mich treffen wollte. Ihr Aufsatz über die Gothaer Aufführungen war mit eleganter Knappheit geschrieben [.]". - Der aus Prag gebürtige Svoboda, ausgebildeter Historiker und ehemaliger Geschichtslehrer, führte ab 1862 die Grazer "Tagespost" zu herausragender Stellung, bevor er über München nach Stuttgart zog und dort ab 1889 die "Neue Musik-Zeitung" leitete. Der Liberale und Freidenker gilt als Entdecker Peter Roseggers, den er früh förderte, woraus sich eine tiefe Freundschaft und ein reger Briefwechsel ergaben (vgl. ÖBL XIV, 72f.).
