        Copper Etched Map, Nevada 1895 (12" x 9 3/8")

      Library of Congress, Washington, D.C. 1895 - While the USGS produced copper map from the 1880's to the early 1950's, we can find no evidence of any others showing the Library of Congress as the issuer of this map of Nevada (July 24, 1895), number 38260, showing them holding the copyright. This was the same year Nevada authorized its first public library). We find no reference to this map in OCLC or any of the universities in the West. Unlike the limited issues made much later in Arizona in 1980 of the state's centennial of major mining centers, which were then issued for $650 each to Civil Engineers, this would appear to be an unrecorded copy from 1895. Though it is clearly stated as having been copyrighted by the Library of Congress, it does not appear in their online stated holdings. The map weighs 12.5oz.

        Kaiser-Walzer - Autograph Musical Quotation

      - Autograph musical quotation from the Austrian composer known as the "Waltz King." He has penned six measures of the first waltz theme from his popular Kaiser-Walzer (Emperor Waltz), op. 437, signed at the foot and dated August 19, 1895. Penned on a small card, mounted on a trimmed album leaf. Several small tears and irregular trimming to the mount; a few small ink blots and light overall toning to the card. Overall in fine condition. 4.5 x 3.5 inches (11.4 x 8.6 cm), mounted to 7 x 4.5 inches (18 x 11.5 cm).Strauss' Kaiser-Walzer was originally titled Hand in Hand and commemorated the August 1889 visit of Austrian emperor Franz Joseph I to the German Kaiser Wilhelm II, an important gesture of friendship between the Austrian and Prussian empires. The waltz was intended for the opening of the Königsbau concert hall in Berlin (on October 19, 1889) but was not performed for the first time until two days later, under the baton of the conductor. A few weeks later, the waltz was heard in Vienna for the first time, to great acclaim. Strauss' publisher, Fritz Simrock, suggested renaming the piece Kaiser-Walzer as a an appeal to the vanity of both the emperors.

        Paesaggio alpino con gruppo di montagne.

      Acquarello su spessa carta martellata, cm 67 x 98 firmato "G. Setti" nell'angolo in basso a sn., e raffigurante, con un'inquadratura ben calibrata, un prato alpino dominato in primo piano da un abete sulla destra, da una recinzione in legno e da una lunga catena montuosa non meglio identificata, ma quasi certamente un bello scorcio dolomitico, a giudicare dalla conformazione e dal colore "pallido" delle belle montagne figurate. Acquarello insolito per le grandi dimensioni, eseguito con maestria di dettaglio e di colore. Giovanni Setti (Parma, 1895 - Bologna, 1947), compì studi d'arte laureandosi poi in ingegneria. Insegnò a Parma, Ferrara e a Bologna, e fu molto apprezzato, ricevendo encomi e riconoscimenti, sia come artista che come uomo. Note anche alcune sue invenzioni ingegneristiche, per le quali viene ricordato insieme ai suoi più noti lavori di arte figurativa. Lasciati dei brevi margini bianchi a riquadrare la scena. In ottimo stato di conservazione.

        Eine Neue Art von Strahlen; Eine neue Art von Strahlen II Mittheilung (Fortsetzung und Schluss)

      Wurzburg: K. Hof, 1895. FIRST EDITIONS. Original printed wrappers. First edition (fourth issue of the first paper, with the two additional pages; see Klickstein) of the first published reports on the sensational discovery of X-rays -- a form of light invisible to the eye which had never before been observed. With remarkable insight, Röntgen first suspected a new phenomenon while investigating the florescence produced near a Crookes tube in late 1895. He immediately began a thorough set of experiments that revealed the uses of the new ray for science and medicine. Hundreds of articles and books on the new Röntgen-rays were published in the year following their discoverer's announcement. Röntgen (1845-1923), a German physicist, was awarded the first Nobel Prize in physics in 1901. His research spanned nearly all the branches of physics, from work with gases and solutions to investigations of the electromagnetic theory of Maxwell.

        Berliner Goldschmiede. Daten-Werke-Zeichen.

      XXII/647 Seiten, im Anhang schwarz-weiße Tafeln mit 137 Abbildungen, Goldpräge-Rückenschild, Inhaltsverzeichnis, Namenregister, Register der Meister und Firmenzeichen, Schutzumschlag, Großformat-4 Dieses Werk von Dr. Wolfgang Scheffler, ehemals Oberkustos am Kunstgewerbemuseum Berlin, über die Berliner Goldschmiede darf den Anspruch erheben, die erschöpfende Arbeit über die Goldschmiede Berlins zu sein und zu bleiben. Es ist als Ergänzung und Erweiterung der Meisterlisten bei Sarre und Rosenberg gedacht. Friedrich Sarre, der vor über 70 Jahren (1895) sein grundlegendes Buch über die Berliner Goldschmiedezunft publiziert hat, behandelt nun den Zeitraum bis 1800. Das Standardwerk von Marc Rosenberg, Der Goldschmiede Merkzeichen, 2. Auflage (1923), behandelt nur auf 14 Seiten die Berliner Goldschmiede. Wolfgang Scheffler ergänzt nicht nur diese beiden Werke, sondern er führt die Reihe der Berliner Goldschmiede über das Jahr 1800 bis zur Mitte des vorigen Jahrhunderts fort. Die zahlreichen Berliner Silberarbeiten, die seit dem Erscheinen dieser genannten Bücher im Kunsthandel auftauchen, werden berücksichtigt. Umfangreiche einschlägige Archivalien wurden ausfindig gemacht und ausgewertet. Durch die weitgehende Berücksichtigung der Kirchenbücher - und Bürgerbücher-Eintragungen erhält das Buch zugleich eine familienkundliche Note, die für Berlin deshalb historisch interessant ist, da sich oft durch Generationen hindurch das kunstwerkliche Talent und Handwer vererbt hat. Außer Gold- und Silberarbeiten, Juwelieren, Edelsteinfassern sind auch verwandte Berufszweige herangezogen worden, Steinschneider, Graveure, Ciseleure, Petschierstecher, Medailleure, auch Bernstein- und Perlmuttarbeiten. Als Gegengewicht gegen die Überfülle von Daten und Listen der Werke ist der Abbildungsteil gedacht, der den Stilablauf in einem großen Überblick von den bekannten Hofgoldschmieden des 18. Jahrhunderts über die Leistungen des strengen Klassizismus und der Formenanmut der Schinkelzeit bis hin zum behäbig-bürgerlichen Charakter der Biedermeier sichtbar werden soll. Diese kenntnisreiche, in ihrer übersichtlichen Anordnung vorbildlicher Arbeit des Verfassers wird wohl jedem Benutzer, sei es aus den Kreisen der Museen, Archive, Sammler, Kunsthändler oder Liebhaber, als das Nachschlagewerk über die Berliner Goldschmiede von großen Nutzen sein.

        [Götterdämmerung]. L'Anello del Nibelungo Trilogia Il Crepuscolo degli Dei Terza giornata... Traduzione ritmica dal testo originale tedesco di A. Zanardini Rappresentata per la prima volta al Teatro di Bayreuth il 17 Agosto 1876 Opera completa per Canto e Pianoforte con cenno critico di T.O. Cesardi 53869 In brochure, netti Fr. 15 (A) - Legata in stile antico, netti Fr. 16 (A)... Edizioni Ricordi. [Piano-vocal score]

      Milano: G. Ricordi & C. [PN 53869], 1895. The stage copy for the Milan premiere at the Teatro alla Scala on December 26, 1899, conducted by Vanzo. Götterdämmerung is the fourth opera in the Ring cycle. Excerpts were first performed in Vienna at a concert at the Musikverein on March 25, 1875; the entire work was first performed as part of the Ring cycle at Bayreuth on August 17, 1876. "The final opera of the Ring... provides an appropriately weighty conclusion to the epic cycle. 26 years elapsed from the time Wagner made his first prose draft for the work (then called Siegfrieds Tod) to the completion of the full score, with inevitable consequences in terms of stylistic unity. Retrogressive elements of grand opera exist side by side with motivic integration representative of Wagner's most mature style. And yet, the stylistic integrity of Götterdämmerung is scarcely compromised, so skilfully are the disparate elements welded together and so intense the dramaturgical conviction. The resources and stamina demanded by the work (from both singers and orchestra), combined with its sheer length and theatrical potency, make it one of the most daunting yet rewarding undertakings in the operatic repertory." Grove Music Online. Vanzo conducted Wagner's works in Italy, giving the Italian première of Die Walküre in Turin in 1891 and the Milan première of Götterdämmerung. Ferruccio Bonavia and Marco Beghelli in Grove Music Online. A highly interesting performance copy.. Large thick octavo. Quarter modern mahogany brown simulated leather with marbled boards, titling gilt to spine. 1f. (recto publisher's dedication to Giovannina Strazza of Lucca, verso blank), 1f. (recto bust-length portrait of Wagner by Bignami with facsimile autograph signature, verso blank), 1f. (recto decorative title printed in in red and black, verso publisher's device), 1f. (critical note by T.O. Cesardi), 1f. (recto cast list, verso blank), 11-29 (libretto), [i] (blank), 1f. (recto table of contents, verso blank), 591, [i] (blank) pp. Provenance Vittorio Maria Vanzo (1862-1945), a distinguished Italian conductor, pianist, composer, and acquaintance of Wagner. With extensive performance notes, cues, marks, and cuts in various pencils and inks in Vanzo's hand throughout. Handstamps of Vanzo to margins of several pages. Various newspaper and journal clippings and illustrations regarding Wagner, his Ring of the Nibelung operas, and Norse mythology laid down to endpapers. Binding slightly worn and warped. Some browning and soiling, especially to margins; blank margins of many leaves frayed, with small tears, perforations or slight loss, slightly affecting four measures of music; occasional staining; some leaves (indicating cuts) folded and glued down; several leaves fully or partially detached.

        [Photo Album]: New England Life

      Boston and Worchester, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, 1895. Very Good. Oblong quarto. Thick red cloth beveled boards with "Photographs" in silver on front board. Commercially produced with title page reading: "The Art Album for 96 'Bullet' Photographs". Contains 95 sepia-toned gelatin silver prints in the sleeves provided (and one apparently commercially printed, probably collotype, image). Each image is 3.25" x 3.25" and have either mat or glossy finishes. Most are probably Kodak images. Some minimal captioning, mostly with place names. Hinges cracked, with some loose or detached leaves, very good. Some images with fading, overall the images are near fine. A pleasing if somewhat prosaic album of both outside locations and interior domestic images. Among the images are fashionably dressed women at lake side, several boat images: both small steamboats and handsome sailing vessels, and one of a lighthouse. Also many farm images: haywagons, silos, chickens in the barnyard, and a buckboard wagon. Several images of downtown Worchester, Massachusetts, including the train station and a train, the Oddfellows Hall, and several other downtown buildings. Another section features domestic interior images both with and without people posed in them: with an organ, a typewriter on a desk, and a large stove evident. Later are images of Boston: B.F. Kieth's Opera House, Fenuil Hall, Boston Commons, and other buildings. These are followed by some vacation shots in New Hampshire, including one of the Alpine House in Berlin, N.H.,and it ends up with a few images of women clowning around dressed as men. Nice images, mostly of New England domestic and leisure life.

        Die Frauen Leipzigs" - "Die deutschen Frauen dem grössten deutschen Manne". Gift to Bismarck by the women of Leipzig in congratulation of his 80th birthday.

      Leipzig, (1895). - Full-page painting in colours and gilt on vellum, signed by Julia Schily-Koppers, and 7 paper leaves with coloured borders by Amalie Rost (one signed) around the signatures of the dedicatees. Stored in a full leather portfolio over wooden boards (412 x 574 mm) crafted by Amalie Sarling (signed): upper cover with leather carving and 4 tooled brass corner fittings with glass bosses; green moirée silk pastedowns and gilt inner dentelles to both covers. Homage album for Otto von Bismarck (1815-98), who had been forced to resign as chancellor of the German Empire five years previously, on the occasion of his 80th birthday - a time at which the aged statesman was fighting to shape his image for posterity. After a vote to send him a congratulatory birthday telegram had fallen through in the Reichstag, where Bismarck enjoyed little support, some 400 German cities immediately declared him an honorary citizen - a prelude to the Bismarck mania that would seize Germany after his death three years later. The fine painting on vellum by the Westfalian artist Julia Schily-Koppers (1855-1944) depicts a young woman with four children before a bust of Bismark, the pedestal inscribed, "From the German women to the greatest German man", with the statue of Germania in the background. - Koppers, a native of Borken near the Dutch border and grandmother of the German politician Otto Schily, had studied at the Düsseldorf Academy and enjoyed an excellent reputation. The borders of the signatory sheets were painted by the Leipzig architectural painter Amalie Rost (1845-1920). They enclose more than 250 signatures by women of Leipzig, including both artists and the bookbinder. - Binding loose; some duststaining to outer margin of vellum leaf, some dampstaining to paper leaves. Portfolio shows very slight rubbing, more pronounced on lower cover, but in all very finely preserved. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1895 - 1895 Wisden Rebound Like Hardbacks , Special

      1895. This is a very special 1895 Wisden, rebound by Wisden in the middle of the 20th Century to mimic an 1896 hardback, a quirky Wisden that will appeal to some. The similarities to a hardback are that the paste downs are yellow (with a Liverpool cricket club stamp) , the gilt on the covers and spine are identical to that of an 1896. It is slightly smaller by 1/8th inch , smoky top to page block and severe foxing around photo plate, the uniqueness is what will appeal. Hard to price up but Gorringes sold a similar copy (spine less like an 1896) for £750+20% and selling for less than we purchased it for.

        TRINIDAD, WEST INDIES (2 MAPS): PORT OF SPAIN AND SAN FERNANDO: INSURANCE PLAN OF PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD. FEBRUARY 1895. [And:] Insurance Plan of San Fernando, Trinidad. February 1895.

      Lithograph with original hand colour, Complete Set, 1 Key Plan Sheet + 12 Detailed Sectional Plan Sheets + Index Sheet (Good, Key Plan with some areas of toning, surface abrasion and natural paper thinness on left side (not really affecting printed area); Detailed Sectional Plan Sheets generally with some minor marginal chipping and repaired marginal tears; Index Sheet with marginal tears and small loss of blank space on right) Key and Detailed Sectional Plan Sheets, each 63.5 x 53 cm (25 x 21 inches), Index Sheet, 33 x 53 cm (13 x 21 inches); 12 Detailed Plan Sheets would, if joined, form a map approx. (irregular) 190 x 158 cm (75 x 62 inches). - London, 1895. Lithograph with original hand colour, Complete Set, 1 Key Plan + 2 Detailed Sectional Plan Sheets (Very Good, just some minor marginal toning and chipping and tiny closed marginal tears), each sheet, 63.5 x 53 cm (25 x 21 inches); 2 Detailed Sectional Plan Sheets would, if joined, form a map 63.5 x 106 cm (25 x 42 inches). A rare complete suite of Charles Goad’s magnificent and fascinating insurance maps of Trinidad’s two main cities; namely his gargantuan 13-sheet set of Port of Spain (plus the rare index sheet) and the 3-sheet set of San Fernando; the most important and detailed printed urban plans of fin de siècle Trinidad. - This is a complete suite of Charles Goad’s insurance maps of the two main cities of Trinidad, West Indies, including his gargantuan 13-sheet set covering Port of Spain and his 3-sheet set of San Fernando. In massive scale the maps are by far and away the most accurate and detailed printed plans of Port of Spain and San Fernando made during their era. Each map features a single sheet key map, while the other sheets are ultra-detailed, sectional maps that can be joined to form a larger map. The sectional sheets name every street, railway line, alleyway, park, cultural site, institution, and monument, while precisely outlining every property and building, naming proprietors and businesses. They provide an unprecedented wealth of information regarding the economic and social life of British West Indian ports during the fin de siècle period. Importantly, the maps are replete with information relating to fire prevention and risk. Buildings are colour coded either in soft pink (to denote brick buildings) or yellow (wooden buildings), and in outer areas, symbols denote whether building are built attached or as separate structures. There is also much information on water sources, the fire brigade and prevailing winds. Indeed, it was fire that was by far and away the biggest threat to property and life, whether simply set by accident or arson, or caused by hurricanes or earthquakes. However, Trinidad was lucky compared to other West Indian islands, in that it was not located on ‘Hurricane Alley’ and was nowhere near a major tectonic fault line. The twelve sectional maps of Port of Spain are made to a very large scale of 500 feet to 1 inch; while the two sectional maps of San Fernando are done to an ultra-large scale of 50 feet to 1 inch. The map of Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad, which is located on a natural harbour on the northeastern shore of the Gulf of Paria, was then the second most important city in the British West Indies (next to Kingston, Jamaica), with a population, in 1895, of 52,000 (as noted on the map). Upon the British conquest of Trinidad, in 1797, the new regime invested considerable resources into supporting the small capital city of 3,000, allowing it to physically and economically expand. From 1803, the city was allowed to grown southwards, reclaiming land from the coastal mud flats, creating terra firma that would underlie the Plaza del Marina. Further major reclamation projects occurred in the 1840s the 1870s, so creating the land on which the present 1895 impression of the city is laid. For historians, the Goad plans are invaluable as peerless sources for geography and unban development patterns. The present complete set of 13 is supplemented by rare the index sheet that is often not present (an index sheet was never made for Goad’s San Fernando map). The second set showcases San Fernando, the second city of Trinidad, located to the south of the capital, along the shores of the Gulf of Paria. The set incudes a key map and two ultra-detailed sections. San Fernando was established in 1784, during the Spanish regime, upon the fertile Naparima Plains, and soon prospered a major centre for the sugar industry, and later cacao. As noted on the map, in 1895, San Fernando had a population of 8,000. These two sets of fire insurance plans are fine examples from the amazing numb

"The final opera of the Ring... provides an appropriately weighty conclusion to the epic cycle. 26 years elapsed from the time Wagner made his first prose draft for the work (then called Siegfrieds Tod) to the completion of the full score, with inevitable consequences in terms of stylistic unity. Retrogressive elements of grand opera exist side by side with motivic integration representative of Wagner's most mature style. And yet, the stylistic integrity of Götterdämmerung is scarcely compromised, so skilfully are the disparate elements welded together and so intense the dramaturgical conviction. The resources and stamina demanded by the work (from both singers and orchestra), combined with its sheer length and theatrical potency, make it one of the most daunting yet rewarding undertakings in the operatic repertory." Grove Music Online. Vanzo "conducted Wagner's works in Italy, giving the Italian première of Die Walküre (Turin, 1891) and the Milan première of Götterdämmerung (1896). He conducted Italian works in Moscow (1897) and in 1900 visited Buenos Aires. He retired in 1906. As a pianist he gained a fine reputation (Grieg compared him favourably with Liszt and Rubinstein). He undertook many concert tours, often accompanying his wife, the singer Anna Kribel, with whom he opened a singing school in Milan. His opera Edipo re was composed in 1893 but not performed; his two other operas, Fosca and Pamela, were not completed. His one-act operetta Lubino (Milan, Pezzana, 1887) was performed under the pseudonym Canard. Several songs, piano pieces, chamber music, small-scale choral works and a symphony are in the Milan Conservatory library (I-Mc). He also composed a requiem mass."
