        Collection of 66 autograph letters signed to the French composer Fernand Halphen and Madame Georges Halphen

      Approximately 145 pp.) + 1 concert program. Varying sizes, including 12mo, 8vo, and 4to. 54 letters dated or postmarked 1897-1904; 12 undated. Most written in black ink; several in pencil and green ink. On letterhead, personalized stationery, etc. and including telegrams, postcards, and cartes de visite, many with original autograph envelopes. In French. A rare and unusually comprehensive collection of letters to Fernand Halphen, Risler's old classmate at the Paris Conservatoire, and Halphen's mother. Written during a crucial period in Risler's life, the letters chronicle his sojourns to Germany, where he spent two summers as stage manager and singing coach at Bayreuth; his increasingly busy piano career; and several major life-events, including the deaths of his father and aunt, and his and Halphen's marriages. They also record Risler's diverse musical tastes - from his effusive, youthful veneration of Liszt and Wagner, and his delight in the piano works of fellow Frenchman Gabriel Fauré, to his ever more profound admiration for the late piano sonatas of Beethoven. Finally, the letters mention several noted musicians with whom Risler interacted, studied, or became friends, including Jules Massenet, Théodore Dubois, Ernest Guiraud, Reynaldo Hahn, and Arthur Sullivan. With several musical quotations from the works of Wagner, Ambroise Thomas, and others, and one pencil sketch. Occasional autograph corrections. Together with a program for two piano recitals at Prince's Hall, London on May 17 and 23, 1894(?) featuring works of Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, and Schubert. "The last sonatas of Beethoven have occupied me for a month. I could never study them deeply in Paris where the time and frame of mind are totally lacking for such work, if one can call the study of this splendour work... They are unknown, or superficially known by artists in Paris, where, when they speak of Beethoven, they always imply the works as far as the second period. They are much too hasty to understand the rest..." (July 18, 1893); "... tell Fauré that I've read and re-read his last Valse Caprice with unique pleasure. Has he ever written something as exquisite and fine? And what pianistic writing. It is the aristocracy of finesse!... (1893); "I'm reading the Wagner-Liszt correspondence... [which reveals] "two heroic characters..." [and the] "final triumph of genius, of the will, of the resignation to suffering, to martyrdom, and most of all, of love...(July 16, 1894); "... I was very saddened not to see you named at the fugue competition... Unfortunately, the world is so cruel!! Instead let's immerse ourselves in the study and contemplation of Parsifal and Die Meistersinger... which sometimes makes me fall into moments of ecstasy, when I truly forget what's around me... " (undated). Occasional light wear, soiling, and smudging; creased at folds; several letters with minor tearing, small perforations, or slight loss at edges, just minimally affecting text. In good to very good condition overall. . Risler was a French pianist, teacher and conductor of Alsatian and German descent. "He entered the Paris Conservatoire in the preparatory piano class of Emile Decombes, and subsequently studied there with Diémer, winning a premier prix in 1889. Following further instruction in music theory, he went to Germany and had lessons from the Liszt pupils Bernhard von Stavenhagen, Klindworth and, most significantly, D'Albert... His international career dated from 1894, when he gave two recitals in London. Although championing the piano music of his contemporaries (he is the dedicatee of the Dukas Piano Sonata), Risler became renowned as a Beethoven player, giving his first cycle of the complete sonatas in Paris in 1905. His one-composer recitals also included performances of both books of Bach's ‘48Â’, as well as a Chopin series. Risler made a piano version of Richard Strauss's Till Eulenspiegel and he also performed the Liszt transcription of Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique. He taught for some years at the Paris Conservatoire, numbering Jacques Février, Pierre Luboschutz and Marcel Gaveau among his pupils... Revered by his colleagues, he achieved a status as an interpreter of Beethoven that has remained unmatched by any other French pianist." James Methuen-Campbell in Grove Music Online. Fernand Halphen (1872-1917) was a French composer. He studied with Gabriel Fauré before entering the Paris Conservatoire, where he took Ernest Guiraud's composition course. Upon Giraud's death in 1892, he studied with Massenet. In 1895, he won first prize for fugue, and in 1896 second place for the Prix de Rome. His compositions include several symphonies, a suite for orchestra, a ballet, a sonata for violin and piano, and mélodies.

Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1897, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Originale.binding editor to bradel half dark green calico, smooth back, as part of black morocco, gilt small iron and double gold in net queue.Douze numbers from January to December 1897. conservées.Chaque number Covers Edition is illustrated with a woodcut of literary bichrome.Contributions René Boylesve, Paul Fort, Francis Jammes, Henri Ghéon, Remy de Gourmont, etc.Publication founded in 1890 by Henri Mazel, the Hermitage is a monthly magazine owned by the first wave of little magazines Symbolists. In 1895, the magazine between declining and its new director, Edouard Ducoté, uses André Gide. The editorial team is reduced to twelve regular contributors, friends Gide. After many difficulties and attempts to overhaul the editorial team (Remy de Gourmont to make a pass and will also contribute financially in 1905), the Hermitage breathed his last in 1906. The Hermitage manages to detach other important magazines of the time as the Mercure de France or La Revue blanche because it boasts eclectic and apolitical; on its cover, you can also read that it is "the only journal that deals with politics or sociology [but] which deals only with literature and art." His illustrations are small art nouveau, and, true to his state of mind symbolist, employees are more interested in poetry than novel. Tiphaine Samoyault, French literary critic, says that the Hermitage expresses a transition straddles the fin de siècle aestheticism and poetry avant-garde of the 1910s. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue. Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1897. Couvertures conservées. Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie bichrome. Contributions littéraires de René Boylesve, Paul Fort, Francis Jammes, Henri Ghéon, Remy de Gourmont, etc. Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

        Manuscript - "Towards Lhassa. Adventures and Perils in the Land of the Lamas"

      Tibet, 1897. Tibet, 1897. "Towards Lhasaa. Adventures and Perils in the Land of the Lamas." Arnold Savage Landor's preliminary working manuscript, pre-dating the publication of his book, being his recollections compiled immediately upon his release from captivity by the Tibetan ruler, and providing a unique and subtle admission of compassion, empathy and humility, ultimately redeeming the explorer of his critics' commonly harsh character assessment. 8vo. 70 page typescript, with illustrations by the author, fastened with a brass brad. Single leafs measuring approximately 20 x 26 cm, typed rectos only, numbered to bottom margin. Together with an earlier manuscript signed letter by Landor written whilst in Boston January 1889 during his tour of the world, and dealing with a sketch made by Landor. First and last page of manuscript detached and chipped at extremities, otherwise in excellent condition, a singular, unembellished account which precedes the author's book. Singular and anomalous primary source account of an all but forgotten nineteenth century explorer and extreme adventurer - intrepid, resourceful, self-reliant, and perfervid in his quest to penetrate forbidden and unknown lands - this expedition seeing Savage Landor detained and tortured by Nepalese officials for attempting to reach the forbidden city of Lhasa. A resolute advocate in the old adage that an English gentleman had the right to get his throat cut wherever he liked, accompanied only by two Indian servants, Landor set out to independently infiltrate the hostile regions of Tibet in 1897. Without official support of his own government, this was an especially perilous exploit. Fearing her covetous neighbors in British-occupied India and Imperial China, this high Himalayan country had firmly closed her borders to all foreigners. Alas, Tibetan spies roamed the hills to guard the nation; Savage Landor and his servants, whom had crossed into Tibet from Kumaon in May 1897, without permission, were imprisoned, tormented, flogged and tortured. Landor was once transported on horseback, his arms tied behind his back, and mounted on a 'torture saddle' equipped with spikes piercing and tearing his flesh to bits. His eyes were also damaged with heat of an iron paddle. The men were eventually escorted to the borderlands, and with the assistance of Doctor H. Wilson of the Methodist Evangelical Mission, and Political Peshkar Kharak Sing, returned to Europe. On 8 September 1897, after a complete medical examination taken at Taklakot (Burang Town, Purang) in Tibet, Dr. H. Wilson's issued an official "Certificate of A. Henry Savage Landor's injuries and wounds," a detailed document which corroborates Landor's account. He also examined Chanden Sing and confirmed evidence of severe flogging, etc. Copies of both reports were sent by Dr. Wilson to the Deputy Commissioner at Almora, and forwarded to the Government of India. Landor was further examined in Florence in February 1898, again confirming the permanent damage caused by his captors. "Towards Lhassa. Adventures and Perils in the Land of the Lamas" was the original intended title of Landor's most famous work, which was published as "In the Forbidden Land..." Most interestingly, some of this initial text would be modified for publication, seemingly to maintain the persona for which he was so reputed. Landor's manuscript is indicative of a more humble, certainly less vainglorious man than he is touted to have been, especially in revealing genuine instinctive humanitarian empathy for his servant. Details of scenes, encounters, and customs recounted herein, would also be substantially expanded in the book, suggesting that this is a preliminary account, embodying the author's first authoritative recollections and sentiments. As enigmatic as Landor himself, this document essentially alters the long-standing stoic image of historically significant explorer. Excerpts from Landor's manuscript: "Suddenly I felt myself seized from behind by several pairs of rough hands. They grabbed me by the neck, arms, wrists, and legs, and in a trice I was thrown on to my face... Ropes were thrown round my neck, legs, and body... I was indeed a prisoner." "Shouting and hissing, they dragged us prisoners to their camp, where we were separated... The bonds round my arms, wrists, chest, and neck, already cutting into my flesh, were made firmer..." "I heard Chanden Sing being interrogated in loud, angry tones, and accused of guided me into the country. Next I heard the poor fellow's moans and groans, while other sickening sounds told me only too well that the lash was being administered to him. Now a company of soldiers led and pushed me violently before a tribunal..." "A few steps to my left I beheld, flat on his face, Chanden Sing, stripped from the waist downwards... Two stalwart Lamas... still castigating him with knotted and leaded leather things. He was bleeding profusely. Each time a lash fell upon his wounded skin it seemed like a dagger piercing my heart..." "... I called aloud to my poor servant not to fear and all would be right. They would take us back to Taklakot." End excerpts. Landor's attempt to reach Lhasa and dramatic adventures in Tibet earned him instant fame, as well as a headline in the Times. Stating his personal intention as "geographical and scientific... as well as to study the manners and customs of those people," The Times reports that Landor was commissioned by the Daily Mail, "To endeavor to reach L'hassa, the capital city of Thibet, the residence of the Grand Lama, on an affluent of the river San-Poo." A valiant effort had indeed been made, and in 1905 Landor would return to Tibet and Nepal. The forbidden city of Lhasa excited an extraordinary fascination in the nineteenth century. Others from several Western countries also tried to enter around the same time, only to be turned away or killed. American diplomat and scholar of Tibetan ethnography and language, William Rockhill entered the Tibetan frontier in 1888-89. From 1891 to 1894 Grenard and Dutriel de Rhins forged their way through northern Tibet until murdered by Tibetan bandits. In 1892 Annie Taylor became the first Western woman to enter Tibet, being turned away at a distance of only three days march from Lhasa. Captain Hamilton Bower of the British Indian Army crossed Tibet from west to east in 1894. Clement St. George Littledale and his wife Teresa who were well travelled in British Central Asia made an attempt to reach Lhasa during their strenuous 14-month journey to Tibet in 1894-95. In 1898 female Dutch Canadian missionary Susie Rijnhart made a most tragic journey into the country which claimed the lives of her husband and young child. In 1901 Sven Hedin also attempted. None reached nor entered Lhasa. In 1904, the British Empire sent a military expedition led by the colonel Francis Younghusband (1863-1942) which entered Lhasa by force and imposed a treaty securing British access to Tibet. The accompanying signed letter is written by Landor in January 1889 while touring America, and references the artistic work which funded his travels around the world, "2 Walnut Str. [Boston]... Dear Mr. Ropes... Thank you very much for your kind note and cheque. I hope that you received the sketch safely... I have to stay in Boston about a week longer... [signed] A. Henry Savage Landor." The recipient may be Reuben W. Ropes, native of Salem, a New York merchant who shipped ice to England, and president of the American Seamen's Friend Society. Arnold Henry Savage Landor (1865-1924), skilled portrait painter, intrepid explorer, popular writer, inventor, and amateur anthropologist, was born and educated in Florence, then studied portrait painting in Paris. Inspired by the writings of Samuel Baker, Jules Verne and the like, in 1888 he travelled the world, earning income by painting portraits of distinguished persons along the way. With forty pounds sterling in his pocket he reached America, there he painted the portraits of President Harrison, Miss Lincoln - granddaughter of Abraham Lincoln, the celebrated American actress Cora Urquhart Brown-Potter and British actor Kyrle Bellew, among others. In 1889 he left Chicago for Vancouver, from where he made a voyage to Yokohama. From Japan he proceeded to Korea, then to the Great Wall of China, Peking, and Hankow where he met Czar Nicholas of Russia and Prince George of Greece. At Peking he met Sir Robert Hart, the English writer proficient in Chinese. In 1891 he visited Australia, where he painted a portrait of the Prime Minister of New South Wales, Sir Henry Parkes. While in Sydney, Landor also painted the portrait of African explorer Sir Henry Morton Stanley. In 1901 he journeyed to India from Russia, travelling on horseback through Persia. He then went to the Philippines where he met the future General Pershing and, returning to America, he convinced Theodore Roosevelt that he would greatly benefit the American Army. Landor would return fearlessly to Tibet a second time, and from there to Nepal, publishing his account in "Tibet and Nepal" (1905). He then explored regions of Africa which were then little known, and in Abyssinia he painted the portrait of the Emperor Menelik. In 1911 and 1912 he explored the Mato Grosso in Central America, where he almost perished of starvation and navigated rapids by canoe to reach the Amazon River. Published in London, 1898, by William Heinemann, Landor's full account was titled, "In the Forbidden Land: An Account of a Journey into Tibet, Capture by the Tibetan Lamas and Soldiers, Imprisonment, Torture and Ultimate Release brought about by Dr. Wilson and the Political Peshkar, Karak Sing-Pal. Also various official documents, including the enquiry and report by J. Larkin, Appointed by the Government of India..." The following year it was published in New York by Harper & Brothers, translated into French by Henri Jacottet, published in Paris by Hachette, "Voyage d'un Anglais aux régions interdites pays sacré des Lamas," and also into German, plublished in Leipzig, "Auf Verbotenen Wegen: Reisen und Abenteuer in Tibet.". Very Good.

Printed in red and black in Golden type, bound in plain dark blue cloth of the period, cut out paper title mounted on upper cover, edges untrimmed. Binding a little rubbed and scratched with a few small indentations to upper cover, head of spine bumped, first page of the woodcuts has a shallow crease to lower corner, a few other light creases to margins of pages with woodcuts, not affecting images, edges of pages have slight rippling, pale age-browning to endpapers, otherwise a clean crisp copy. NOT IN THE ORIGINAL KELMSCOTT BINDING. Of these thirty-five reproductions twenty-nine were all that were done of a series chosen by Mr. Morris to illustrate a catalogue of his library, and the other six were prepared by him for an article in the 4th number of Bibliographica, part of which is reprinted as an introduction to the book. The process blocks (with one exception) were made by Walker & Boutall, and are of the same size as the original cuts. Limited edition of 225 copies plus 8 vellum copies, the limitation not printed in the book. See Willan Peterson, A Bibliography of the Kelmscott Press, pages 131-134, No. A49. The binding is of the time and the paper label looks like paper and type used by the Kelmscott Press. According to Peterson the book sold out and many customers were disappointed so it could have been a rejected copy due to a crease in the margin of the first illustration? Obviously this is speculation. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.
