        Harriet Beecher Stowe boldly pens a quote from her book, "Uncle Tom's Cabin"

      Hartford, Connecticut, April 13, 1894. 4.5" X 6.75". "Autograph Quotation Signed, ""Harriet Beecher Stowe"", from the all-important classic book, ""Uncle Tom's Cabin"", boldly penned and quite large for Mrs. Stowe. One page, 4.5"" X 6.75"", affixed along left margin to a larger sheet, 5.25"" X 7.25"", displaying a facsimile engraved image of Stowe on verso. The original face of the mailing envelope, 4.5"" X 3.5, penned by Stowe is postmarked April 13, 1894, from Hartford, Connecticut. In full: ""Not one throb of anguish, not one tear of the oppressed is forgotten by the Man of Sorrows the Lord of Glory. In His patient generous bosom He bears the anguish of a world. / Uncle Tom's Cabin / Chap 12 / Harriet Beecher Stowe / April 13 1894"". One horizontal mailing fold and light soiling. Overall, near fine condition. The context in which this appears in the book involves the river boat trip on which the slave trader Haley conducted Tom and other Kentucky slaves southward to be sold as plantation hands. At Louisville, Haley surreptitiously sold the baby of the newly traded slave woman, Lucy, when she briefly left in hopes of finding her husband at the wharf. Crushed, she committed suicide by jumping into the Ohio River that night. Tom was a witness to this. The passage immediately follows Lucy's suicide and Mrs. Stowe obviously intended it as a powerful intermediate statement. The acceptance of ""Uncle Tom's Cabin"" at face value by people in the North was a major factor in the development of the Civil War."

        Autograph draft of a concert program for a recital of Wolf's songs at the Saal Bösendorfer in Vienna pn April 3, 1894

      . 1 page. Large quarto. No place or date, but April 3, 1894. Written in black ink. Headed "Hugo Wolf Liederabend" followed by: "unter gefälliger Mitwirkung der Frl. Frieda Zerny Opernsängerin aus Mainz des Herren Ferd. Jäger, Opernsänger u[nd] des Herren Hugo Faisst Conzertsänger. Klavierbegleitung: der Componist" (Recital of lieder with the friendly participation of Fräulein Frieda Zerny, opera singer from Mainz; Herr Ferdinand Jäger, opera singer; and Herr Hugo Faisst, concert singer. Piano accompaniment by the composer). Seven sets of 3 to 5 songs (28 songs in total), all by Wolf, sets numbered "7," "2-6," and "1." Set "7" originally was set "1"; the final set "1" was added last. Each set to be performed by one singer each. Poets credited except in set 6; singers credited in sets 7, 2, 3, and 4 only. With a number of autograph corrections in black ink and corrections in a different hand in pencil. Slightly browned and stained; creased at folds with very minor splits.. The document was on display at the 1960 Wolf centennial exhibition in Vienna and Graz. See Hugo Wolf: Persönlichkeit und Werk: Eine Ausstellung zum 100. Geburtstag. Catalogue by Franz Grasberger (Vienna: Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, 1960), p. 64 (item X/5); it was then in the possession of Hilde Wittgenstein, wife of the pianist Paul Wittgenstein. A printed version of the same program, with some changes, at Österreichische Nationalbibliothek; another printed version including sung texts at Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde, Vienna. HWW 114|1. Featured singers included Frieda Zerny (1864-1917), soprano; Ferdinand Jäger (1839- 1902), tenor; and Hugo Faisst (1862-1914), baritone, a practicing lawyer from Stuttgart. "On 3rd April Frl. Zerny, Faisst, Jäger and Wolf gave a concert in the Bösendorfersaal. This was actually the first concert wholly devoted to Wolf's songs to be given in Vienna. According to the composer himself, its success was a downright sensational one... Frl. Zerny's temperament found perfect opportunities for expression in such songs as Die Zigeunerin; Erstes Liebeslied eines Mädchens; Geh', Geliebter, geh' jetzt! and Das Köhlerweib ist trunken... Nearly half of the songs on the programme had to be repeated..." Frank Walker, Hugo Wolf, 2nd edition (London: Dent, 1968), p. 356. Das Köhlerweib ist trunken does not appear on the present draft of the program.

        Tales of Mean Streets

      London, Methuen. 1894, 1894. First Edition, Second Issue. 8vo. 301pp + 32pp ads dated Jan. 1895. Publisher's olive green cloth titled in gilt to spine and front boards. Bumped to spine ends and with trifling wear and very slight sunning to spine. A fine bright, clean copy. Edges untrimmed, very light sporadic spotting. Published a couple of years before as 'A Child of The Jago' this book is part of Morrison's 'slums of London' cycle that ends with 'The Hole In The Wall' in 1902. With his gritty depictions of the moral and social compromises necessary for survival in such dreadful places, and his unwillingness to take a critical stance regarding his characters and their predicament, Morrison stands out as far superior to the standard crop of God-bothering 'urban reform through fiction' mongers that the late Victorian age spewed forth in their dozens. A lovely copy of a scarce and admirable book. Eric Quayle; Detective Fiction. Parrott A-3.

        A Woman of No Importance

      London: John Lane, at the sign of the Bodley Head, 1894. First edition. Near Fine. One of 500 copies of the first edition. Book Near Fine with the spine faded, otherwise a very nice copy. After the first four leaves, the book is entirely unopened at the top-edge. Bookplate of Joseph Groves and short inscription from film and television actor Vincent Price. Price portrayed Oscar Wilde in a one-man stage production of "Diversions and Delights," which ran from 1977 to 1980 in a variety of venues around the world. An excellent copy with an interesting association. Like many of his other plays, the work was first performed on the stage in April of 1893, before being published in book form. While not his most famous play, it deals with many of his favorite social issues and is not lacking in wit and dark humor. The run of plays was cut short as a result of Wilde's arrest and prosecution for homosexual behavior. The scandal cooled all enthusiasm for Wilde's work until after his death in 1900, when interest in his work began to revive. Near Fine.

Publisher's brown (mauve) cloth, gilt titles and decoration. Light wear, slightly rubbed and soiled, bumped to corner of upper. Occasional light foxing. 'A Woman Of No Importance' first appeared at the Haymarket Theatre on 19th April, 1893. "It is not his wit, then, and still less his knack of paradox-twisting, that makes me claim for him a place apart among living dramatists. It is the keenness of his intellect, the individuality of his point of view, the excellence of his verbal style, and above all the genuinely dramatic quality of his inspirations. I do not hesitate to call the scene between Lord Illingworth and Mrs. Arbuthnot at the end of the second act of this play the most virile and intelligent - yes, I mean it, the most intelligent- piece of English dramatic writing of our day."

        The Purchase Of The North Pole. A sequel to "From The Earth To The Moon

      London, Sampson Low, Marston and Company. 1894, 1894. First English edition, later impression. Publishers bottle green decorated cloth binding, embossed in gilt and black depicting a rather fetching "man meets polar bear" theme. Slight signs of rubbing to corners and head of spine, but very minor, bright and strong. A scarce printing, lavishly illustrated by our old friend M. Rioux, depicting the continued (if slightly less sound) adventures of The Baltimore Gun Club, as they purchase the afore mentioned Arctic and seek to divert the earth from its accustomed orbit to shift the climate zones. This will result in the privately owned North Pole becoming a tropical paradise, allowing the Club to clean up on the cruise ship and pina colada holidays market. A tropical paradise inhabited by polar bears? Who ever heard such a...wait just a minute! Once again Mr.Verne proves that, if it hasn't a some point entered his head, it probably isn't worth thinking about. Presumably if I were an ABC executive I'd consider buying his entire body of work and locking J.J. Abrams in a broom closet with a flashlight until he'd read them all. A splendid book.

The Société des Beaux Arts produced lovely limited editions, usually numbering around 500 copies. Ours is a supremely luxurious, strictly limited issue with an elegant Art Nouveau binding. Édouard-Henri Avril (21 May 1849 ?- 28 July 1928) was a French painter and commercial artist. Under the pseudonym Paul Avril, he was an illustrator of erotic literature. Born in Algiers, Avril studied art in various Paris salons. From 1874 to 1878 he was at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris. Having been commissioned to illustrate Théophile Gautier's novel Fortunio, he adopted the pseudonym Paul Avril. His reputation was soon established and he received many commissions to illustrate both major authors and the so-called "galante literature" of the day, a form of erotica. These books were typically sold in small editions on a subscription basis, organised by collectors.Paul Avril illustrated such works as Gustave Flaubert's Salammbô, Gautier's Le Roi Caundale, John Cleland's Fanny Hill, William Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra, Jean Baptiste Louvet de Couvray's Adventures of the Chevalier de Faublas, Mario Uchard's Mon Oncle Barbassou (scenes in a harem), Jules Michelet's The Madam, Hector France's Musk, Hashish and Blood, the writings of Pietro Aretino, and the anonymous lesbian novel Gamiani. His major work was designs for De Figuris Veneris: A Manual of Classical Erotica by the German scholar Friedrich Karl Forberg. Many consider Cleopatra one of the most complex female characters in Shakespeare's body of work. She is frequently vain and histrionic, almost provoking an audience to scorn; at the same time, Shakespeare's efforts invest both her and Antony with tragic grandeur. These contradictory features have led to famously divided critical responses. It is difficult to classify Antony and Cleopatra as belonging to a single genre. It can be described as a history play (though it does not completely adhere to historical account), tragedy (though not completely in Aristotelian terms), comedy, and a romance.

        BOOK OF THE THOUSAND NIGHTS AND A NIGHT. Translated from the Arabic by Capt. Sir R. F. Burton. Printed from the Original Edition and Edited by Leonard C. Smithers

      London H. S. Nichols & Co. 1894 - 12 volumes. First edition thus, the first Nichols/Smithers "Library Editon", with all passages restored which had been omitted from Lady Burton's edition of 1886. 8vo, black cloth decorated with elaborate Islamic design filling top cover, gilt lettered on spine. A very fine set exceptionally so for this edition, near mint. THE FIRST OF NICHOLS AND SMITHERS' FINE LIBRARY EDITIONS OF THIS MASTERPIECE OF WORLD LITERATURE AND ONE OF THE GREAT TRANSLATION EFFORTS OF ALL TIME, AND TO THIS DAY, UNRIVALED BY ANY SUBSEQUENT LINGUISTIC FEAT. Richard Burton was one of the foremost linguists of his time, an explorer, poet, translator, ethnologist, and archaeologist, among other things. ‘The Thousand Nights and a Night’ is probably the most famous of all his many works. This translation reflected his encyclopedic knowledge of Arabic language, sexual practices and life: "it reveals a profound acquaintance with the vocabulary and customs of the Muslims, with their classical idiom," [Ency Britt] as well as colloquialisms, philosophy, modes of thought and intimate details. In contrast to Victorian mores, Burton was driven to explore what would now be called by literary critics the uncanny/Unheimliche or the unresolvable tensions of human beings. Accordingly, he recorded details of daily life and practices that were considered vulgar at the time. The original edition was published in Benares in 1885 and printed by the Kamashastra Society for private subscribers only. Lady Burton's edition of 1886 omitted 215 pages from the original text. In this edition, the omitted material has been restored. Edited by Leonard Smithers, who hoped that this edition would permit Burton's translation of the famous tales to "take its proper place on the library shelf alongside Cervantes and Shakespeare." (From the Editor's Note.) Sale is of books only, statuary in photograph is not included. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Expedition of Humphrey Clinker; The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle (2 Volumes); The Adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves and the History and Adventures of an Atom; The Adventures ofRoderick Random and The Adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom

      London - George Routledge & Sons, Ltd. 1894 - A handsomesix volume set of Tobias Smollett's novels. Humphrey Clinker is illustrated throughout. Binder's label to front free-endpapers - J. Larkins. Tobias George Smollett (1721 1771) was a Scottish poet and author. He was best known for his picaresque novels, such as The Adventures of Roderick Random (1748) and The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle (1751), which influenced later novelists such as Charles Dickens. George Orwell admired Smollett very much. His novels were amended liberally by printers; a definitive edition of each of his works was edited by Dr. O. M. Brack, Jr. to correct variants. The Expedition of Humphry Clinker was the last of the picaresque novels of Tobias Smollett, and is considered by many to be his best and funniest work. Published in London on 17 June 1771, it is an epistolary novel, presented in the form of letters written by six different characters: Matthew Bramble, a Welsh Squire; his sister Tabitha; their niece and nephew, Jery and Lydia Melford; Tabitha's maid Winifred Jenkins; and Lydia's suitor, Wilson. The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle is a picaresque novel by the Scottish author Tobias Smollett (1721 1771), first published in 1751, and revised and reissued in 1758. It is the story of the fortunes and misfortunes of the egotistical dandy Peregrine Pickle, and it provides a comic and caustic portrayal of 18th-century European society. The Adventures of Roderick Random is a picaresque novel by Tobias Smollett, first published in 1748. It is partially based on Smollett's experience as a naval-surgeon mate in the British Navy, especially during Battle of Cartagena de Indias in 1741. In the preface, Smollett acknowledges the connections of his novel to the two satirical picaresque works he translated into English: Cervantes Don Quixote (1605 15) and Alain-Ren Lesage Gil Blas (1715 47). The Adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom is a novel by Tobias Smollett first published in 1753. It was Smollett's third novel and met with less success than his two previous more picaresque tales. The central character is a villainous dandy who cheats, swindles and philanders his way across Europe and England with little concern for the law or the welfare of others. The son of an equally disreputable mother, Smollett himself comments that Fathom justifies the proverb, 'What's bred in the bone will never come out of the flesh. Sir Walter Scott commented that the novel paints a complete picture of human depravity. The Life and Adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves, a novel by Tobias Smollett, was published in 1760 in the monthly paper The British Magazine. Its first number, published in January, 1760, contained the first instalment of Smollett fourth novel. Sir Launcelot is an eighteenth-century gentleman who rides about the country in armour, attended by his comic squire, Timothy Crabshaw, redressing grievances. These characters are obviously inspired by Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, and Smollett's novel has been compared unfavorably with Cervantes'. The History and Adventures of an Atom, by Tobias Smollett, is a novel that savagely satirises English politics during the Seven Years' War. It appears under the guise of a tale from ancient Japan. Pitt the Elder appears as Taycho, and other politicians, monarchs and nations under a light disguise of made-up names. It includes some comments on Britain's growing problems with its American colonies. The 'atom' is the supposed narrator, a witness to the events and somehow able to communicate them to modern listeners. Smollett is referring back to the ancient Greek idea of atoms, the ideas of Democritushough, of course, he is also being satirical. The book was published anonymously in 1769. Smollet's authorship of the book has been disputed, but it is generally included and discussed among his works. Writing in 1821, Sir Walter Scott wrote, The chief purpose of the work (besides that of giving the author the opportunity to raise his hand, like that of Ishmael, against every man [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mädchenakt mit wehendem Haar und flatterndem Tuch, rechts zwei Detailstudien des linken Armes.

      - Bleistift, weiß gehöht, auf bräunlichem Velin, rechts unten in Kurzform signiert. 28,8:21 cm. Zunächst absolvierte Bürck 1894-1897 eine Lehre als Dekorationsmaler in München, daneben besuchte er 1895-1897 die dortige Kunstgewerbeschule bei T. Spieß (1846-1920), F. Widmann (1846-1910) und K.M. Gebhardt (1834-1915). Seine Tätigkeit lag in dieser Zeit auf dem Buchdekor, vereinzelt auch auf kunstgewerblichen Entwürfen, etwa für Teppiche, Tapeten, Schmuck und Porzellan. 1899 wurde er auf Veranlassung von Großherzog Ernst Ludwig von Hessen Gründungsmitglied der Darmstädter Künstlerkolonie. 1902/03 leitete er die Buchgewerbeklasse der Kunstgewerbe- und Handwerkerschule in Magdeburg. 1905-1908 lebte er in Rom, anschließend kehrte er nach München zurück, wo er bis zu seinem Tode lebte. Nach einer ersten Orientierung am floralen Jugendstil, schloß er sich nach 1900 dem strengeren, abstrakt-linearen Jugendstil der Darmstädter an. Nach seinem Darmstädter Aufenthalt wandte er sich immer mehr der Graphik und Malerei zu, die er ab 1904 ausschließlich pflegte. Die zwischen 1904 und 1922 veröffentlichten zahlreichen Mappenwerke zeigen mit ihren Landschaften oder Blättern mit allegorischen und symbolischen Themen eine Orientierung an M. Klinger (1857-1920) und A. Kubin (1877-1959). Ab 1913 gestaltete er überwiegend alpine Landschaften, dekorative Figurenbilder und Porträts.

Riehl, dessen Tochter Helene Riehl (geb. 1850) eine Landschaftsmalerin wurde. Laut einer überlieferten schriftlichen Anmerkung der Künstlerin war sie in Weimar eine Schülerin des Malers und Radierers F. Preller d. Ä. (1804-1878).
