        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Rom, 6. XII. [1896]. - 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Kl.-8vo. "Geehrte Frau / Es ist mir eine besondere Befriedigung gewesen, dass mein kleiner Nachruf, Ihnen sympathisch gewesen ist. Sie sind mir ja auch längst keine Fremde mehr und ich weiss, dass Niemand dem edlen Geschiednen so nahe gestanden, ihn so gut gekannt hat, wie Sie. Was Sie verloren haben, begreife ich vollkommen, denn auch selbst die reichste Hinterlassenschaft geistigen Lebens kann das warme Wort, den begleitenden Blick, den lebendigen Austausch, nicht ersetzen. Aber nach und nach wird Ihnen dies herrliche Besitzthum, ein unerschöpflicher Trost werden und jemehr Sie davon der Welt mittheilen wollen, jemehr werden Sie Gutes thun in seinem Sinn. Denn die Welt heutzutage hat in ihrem Elend, noch vielmehr das geistige Almosen nöthig als das materielle, um die Idealität zu retten, ohne die das Leben nur gemein ist und für edle Naturen ohne Werth. - Führt Ihr Weg, nun Sie allein sind, Sie nicht einmal nach Rom? Es würde sich sehr freuen Sie persönlich kennen zu lernen Ihre sehr ergebne M. Meysenbug". - Minimal angestaubt; im linken Rand Einriss von ausgerissenem Zwirn. Von Meysenbugs Nachruf auf den am 8. November 1896 verstorbenen Rudolf Gf. Hoyos-Sprinzenstein war am 20. November in der Neuen Freien Presse erschienen (in Kopie beiliegend).

        Commentaries on American Law.

      Boston, Little, Brwon, and Company, 1896. Fourteenth Edition edited by John M. Gould. 4 Bde. 8vo. (1:) CCXCI, 548 S.; (2:) X, 647 S.; (3:) VIII, 514 S.; (4:) VII, 742 S. Spätere Halbleinenbände mit Buntpapierüberzug auf den Buchdeckeln. Kent (1763-1847), war zunächst von 1785 bis 1798 im Staate New York als Rechtsanwalt tätig, anschließend von 1794 bis 1798 und nochmals 1824 bis 1826 als Rechtsprofessor am Columbia College., beides allerdings nicht mit jenem Erffolg, wie er in später erfahren hat. Im Jahre 1798 wurde er zum Richter ernannt und war von 1804 an Gerichtspräsident. Von 1814 bis zu seiner Pensionierung im Jahre 1823 wurde er schließlich zum Richter am Chancery-Gericht des Staates New York berufen, dem für alle Equity-Fälle zuständigen Gericht. Die Unterscheidung zwischen Common Law und Equity, einem im Mittelalter zum Ausgleich von Härtefällen entwickelten Billigkeitsrecht, das sich zu einem eigenständigen Rechtssystem entwickelt hatte, und die damit einhergehende Errichtung besonderer Equity-Gerichte waren aus dem englischen Recht in das amerikanische übernommen worden. Kent hat mit seinen Entscheidungen, die über New York hinaus Autorität erlangten, das englische Equity-Recht den amerikanischen Bedürfnissen angepaßt und eine Equity-Gerichtsbarkeit amerikanischer Prägung geschaffen. Zwischen 1826 und 1830 veröffentlichte Kent seine Commentaries on American Law, die in mehreren Auflagen erschienen und neben den Werken von Joseph Story das wohl bedeutendste Werk der amerikanischen Rechtsliteratur der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts sind. Die Commentaries, nach dem Vorbild von Blackstones Commentaries on the Law of England gestaltet, sind die erste systematische Darlegung des gesamtgen amerikanischen Rechts mit Ausnahme des Strafrechts. Das Werk erlangte schnell großes Ansehen als autoritative Darstellung des amerikanischen Rechts und hat viel zur Amerikanisiserung des Rechts beigetragen. Versand D: 2,00 EUR 8.8.4.5.

In seinem Wohnhaus Barkenhoff befindet sich heute das Heinrich-Vogeler-Museum. In der zahlreichen Sekundärliteratur über Vogeler findet auch das graphische Werk eine Aufarbeitung bei Hans-Hermann Rief, der in Worpswede ebenso den schriftlichen Nachlass Vogelers übernahm.

        CYANOTYPE PHOTOGRAPHIC COLLAGE OF IMAGES FROM SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, PRINTED ON SILK.

      np nd [ca. 1896-1907], NP - Silk broadside, 17 1/2 x 18 in., printed with 9 different images of varying sizes. The central photo of the Victorian style "Cliff House" with a beach scene full of well dressed visitors in the fore-ground, is surrounded by smaller images. Four of the photos have printed caption titles (three of these also have identifying stock photo numbers): "27. A. The Golden Gate S.F." ; "The Seal Rocks S.F."; "28. "Breakers" near the Cliff House"; "126. Street . (illegible)" [most likely a scene in Chinatown, the photo shows a Chinese man in a padded jacket and bowler hat, with two children in traditional dress, posing in a narrow street, under a sign with Chinese characters]. Other images include a view of a promenade with women in long dresses and elaborate hats strolling with gentlemen in suits and hats; two water views; and a pair of young Chinese girls in traditional costume. The silk broadside is a bit frayed at the edges, with browning to the margins, rumpled from folding, one small ink blot on verso showing through to a blank spot on one of the images. The word "Lustral" printed in block letters on verso. The cyanotypes are otherwise clear. The Victorian style Cliff House was built in 1896 by Adolph Sutro, after a fire destroyed the previous structure on the site. According to a short history of the Cliff House: "Fashioned after a French chateau, the second Cliff House opened in February of 1896 and boasted eight stories, four spires, and an observation tower 200 feet above sea level. Though never a hotel, it served as an elegant site for dining, dancing, and entertainment." The Cliff House survived the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 only to burn to the ground the following year. The cyanotype method of "fixing" a photographic image became a popular way of producing photos in the late 1880's for both professional and amateur photographers.
