WOLF, Hugo, Komponist (1860-1903)
Wien 18 1, 1895. 4 Seiten, kl-8, mit eigh. Kuvert. - Ausführliches Schreiben an seinen Freund und Förderer, den Richter und Komponisten Oskar Grohe in Mannheim. "Mein lieber Freund! Ein Wunder, ein Wunder, ein unerhörtes Wunder ist geschehen. Der lang ersehnte Operntext hat sich endlich gefunden; Fix und fertig liegt derselbe vor mir u. ich brenne nur so vor Begierde mich an die musikalische Ausführung zu machen. Sie kennen doch die Novelle "der Dreispitz" von Pedro de Alarcon. Dieselbe ist bei Reclam erschienen. Frau Rosa Mayreder, eine, mir seit Jahren bekannte, geniale Frau, hat das Kunststück fertig gebracht die Novelle in ein äußerst wirkungsvolles Opernbuch umzuwandeln u. sich künstlerisch auf der Höhe des Dichters zu halten. Freund Schalk, dem ich das Buch vorgelesen äußerte sein überschwengliches Entzücken über die außerordentliche Kraft u. Geschicklichkeit der Verfasserin u. meinte, es sei die komische Oper par excellence. ." Weiters über eine erhoffte finanzielle Unterstützung durch den Freiherrn Franz von Lipperheide. ". In zwei Jahren längstens hoffe ich das Werk vollenden zu können. Mit aller Macht drängt es mich den Wirrsalen meiner jetzigen Verhältnisse zu entfliehen, der mich umgebenden Stickluft zu entweichen, um neue Eindrücke auf mich einwirken zu lassen. Mit Recht schreibt einmal der unglückliche Stauffer-Bern an Peter Halm: 'Lokalwechsel ist sehr gut, merke Dir das. Ist man zu lange an einem Ort, so lullt man sich sachte in eine gewisse Selbstgenügsamkeit ein, zu welcher gute Freunde u. die liebe Faulheit (Geistesfaulheit) das ihrige beitragen.'

KELMSCOTT PRESS.) MORRIS, William, & Alfred John Wyatt, translators.
Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1895. Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press,, 1895. The Kelmscott Beowulf, in original limp vellum Large quarto. Original limp vellum, spine lettered in gilt, with brown silk ties. Printed on Batchelor paper in black and red in Troy and Chaucer types. Decorative woodcut title, borders, and initials. As often, rear ties gone, front ties partly gone, with three long fragments loosely inserted. Light toning and soiling to spine, minor cockling and bowing to covers, yet overall in very nice condition; contents clean and fresh. First Kelmscott edition, and the first edition of William Morris's translation, one of 300 copies printed on paper (a further eight copies were issued on vellum). Morris began his translation of the great English epic in 1893, based on a prose rendering by the Anglo-Saxon scholar Alfred J. Wyatt of Christ's College, with whom he consulted over a two year period. Beowulf had particular resonance for Morris: he called the poem "the first and the best poem of the English race", with "no author but the people" (cited in Peterson). The borders, designed by Morris, were used in only one other Kelmscott publication, The Life and Death of Jason, published six months later. Franklin p. 200; Peterson A32; Ransom p. 328; Tomkinson 32; Walsdorf & Blackell 32.

1895. Genuine wooden oak boards made from Abraham's Oak (See below info) from Jerusalem. 37 pages of genuine pressed wild flowers from the Holy Land. Arranged in picture form. See pictures. Size: 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" The Oak of Mamre (also called the Oak of Sibta), at Khirbet es-Sibte (also as Ain Sibta), is a site venerated by some as the "Oak of Abraham", and distinct from the more ancient site of Mamre. It owes its name to an ancient tree, which seems to be dead but has a young sprig growing next to it, and stands on the grounds of the modern Russian Orthodox Monastery of the Holy Trinity. It is reported to have fallen in 2019.[1] The site is located two kilometres (1.2 miles) southwest of Mamre, historically near Hebron[2] and now inside the city. Also called The Oak of Abraham,[3] it is an ancient tree (Quercus coccifera) which, in one tradition, is said to mark the place where Abraham entertained the three angels[4] or where Abraham pitched his tent. This site is distinct and at a different location from the site considered as Mamre by Herod the Great, Josephus, Constantine the Great, early Church historians and Christian pilgrims all until the mid-12th century, such as Arculf and Abbot Daniel. That site is at a location called in Arabic Ramat al-Khalil (the older name used by archaeologists) and currently Bir al-Haram ar-Rameh, which is a few kilometres north of the site described in this article. After the mid-12th century, the tradition of the "Oak of Mamre" has migrated to one or several places along the road from Mamre to Hebron, such as the site from this article.

Encre sur papier 1895, Dessin : 27x21 cm / Programme : 22x28 cm, Une feuille et un feuillet remplié. - 39849 - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Dessin original à l'encre représentant le duel entre le Chevalier d'Eon - habillé en femme - et Monsieur de Saint-Georges qui se déroula le 9 avril 1787 à la demande du Prince de Galles, Georges Auguste de Hanovre, futur George IV d'Angleterre. Cachet de la signature de l'artiste dans l'angle inférieur droit de l'œuvre et monogramme de l'artiste ; cachet de l'atelier au verso. Mention manuscrite au dos, au crayon à papier, du titre, et de la date. Très bel état de conservation. Provenance : atelier de l'artiste, référencé au catalogue Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). On joint un programme publié par le Cercle de l'Escrime, annonçant notamment la « reconstitution de l'Assaut de la Chevalière d'Eon et du Chevalier de Saint-Georges » le 12 janvier 1895 ; au verso du premier feuillet est reproduit le dessin que nous proposons ici. Selon certaines sources, Charles Geneviève Louis d'Eon de Beaumont dit le Chevalier d'Eon, serait né hermaphrodite. Fort de son androgynie, il devint espion pour le compte du « Secret du roi » et apporta à la France - grâce à son travestissement et sous l'identité de Lia de Beaumont - d'importants succès diplomatiques. A la mort de Louis XV, le service secret royal dissout, le Chevalier se retrouva désœuvré et criblé de dettes. Précurseur du transgenre il fut le premier à choisir son genre, à la demande de Louis XVI. Renonçant dès lors à ses droits militaires, il fit carrière dans l'escrime, mult … [Click Below for Full Description]
