NAPIER, Theodore.
[Edinburgh: Lorimer and Gillies] for [the author] in Edinburgh: 'Balmanno' and London: R. Stewart Meade, 1898. 4to in half sheets (235 × 200 mm), pp. 31, [1], plus portrait. Ornaments to text. Printed on thick laid paper. Original limp red roan, upper cover lettered in gilt. Small paper shelf label. Inscribed: 'To Her Most Gracious Majesty The Queen from Her loyal Subject the Author', additional inscription by the recipient: 'Matia Theresa'. A fine copy. First edition, dedication copy, inscribed by the author to 'The Queen', that is, the Jacobite claimant of the British Crown, Maria Theresa of Austria-Este (1849-1919). Theodore Napier (1845-1924), Australian-born of Scottish emigrant parentage, became one of the most colourful Scottish patriots and advocates of the Jacobite succession. Adopting full Highland dress and sporting an extravagant white beard he raised eyebrows in Melbourne and Edinburgh alike and he issued a stream of pamphlets advocating Scottish home rule and the Jacobite succession. The frontispiece here depicts Maria Theresa, with the caption: 'Who, but for the Act of Settlement, would now be reigning as Queen Mary III. of Scotland, and IV. of England and Ireland.' The pamphlet was issued as number 17 of the publications of the Legitimist Jacobite League of Great Britain and Ireland, but appears here as an offprint (without reference to the series) on thick paper. Maria Theresa was the niece and heir of the childless Francis V, Duke of Modena who had been, at the time of his death, the Jacobite heir-general to the thrones of England, Scotland and Ireland; a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Soeben erfahre ich, daß in der zweiten Hälfte des Januar hier, aus Anlass mehrfacher hoher Besuche bei Hofe, eine Reihe von musikalischen Veranstaltungen bei Hofe gegeben werden sollen. Meine Bremer Pläne sind dadurch arg gekreuzt, da ich bei diesen Veranstaltungen unmöglich abwesend sein darf." - "1880-1903 war M. Hofkapellmeister in Karlsruhe, zugleich bis 1892 auch Dirigent des Philharmonischen Vereins, 1893 wurde er Generalmusikdirektor. 1886-1906 dirigierte er häufig in Bayreuth, 1894-1900 mehrmals in Paris, Brüssel und London (dort u. a. Wagners „Ring des Nibelungen"). Von November 1903 bis April 1904 war er Gastdirigent an der Metropolitan Opera in New York und in anderen amerikan. Städten, 1904-11 wirkte M. als Hofkapellmeister und Generalmusikdirektor, seit 1907 als Hofoperndirektor sowie als Leiter der Musikalischen Akademie und der Akademie der Tonkunst in München. M. war einer der bedeutendsten Dirigenten seiner Zeit. Sein Einsatz galt vor allem Wagner, Liszt und Berlioz. In seinen Kompositionen, die überwiegend vor 1880 entstanden, konnte M., wiewohl gewandter Instrumentator, kein eigenes Profil entwickeln, doch sind von seinen zahlreichen Bearbeitungen mehrere Instrumentierungen von Klavierliedern bis heute im Repertoire geblieben" (R.

CARUANA, A. A.
Malta: Government Printing Office, 1898. Malta: Government Printing Office,, 1898. In the Islands of Malta explored and surveyed from the year 1881 to the year 1897. (Copy-right Edition.) Small folio. Original drab printed wrappers. 33 lithographs mainly of cemeteries and tombs layout, including 2 folding and a folding map. Early ink ownership "E. Ingoldsby Capt. R. E." to front wrapper. Some wear and chipping to edges, a few small creases, light soiling and staining to wrappers, occasional light foxing, heavier on last few leaves; a very good copy indeed. First and only edition of this study of early funerary antiquities and practices in Malta by Dr. Antonio Annetto Caruana (1830-1905), a "pioneer in the field of Heritage Management in the Maltese islands" (Romina Delia). Caruana was an archaeologist and author, who served as Librarian and Keeper of Antiquities at the Malta Library from 1880 to 1896. In 1860, Captain Walter Strickland showed the Tal-Mintna Catacombs to Caruana who was the first to document them. He was later put in charge of 'Archaeological Explorations and Preservation of Local Antiquities' between 1880 and 1896. "Notwithstanding his positive steps towards consolidating and safeguarding the cultural heritage of the island, Caruana was a product of his time and a theological education; history to him was bound to the biblical narrative. Depending on one's interpretation, Caruana either could not or would not consider a period in Malta earlier than the Phoenicians, who figured in the biblical accounts. But no amount of Christian zeal could sustain the lin … [Click Below for Full Description]

N.P.: Sentinel and Gazette Steam Press, 1851]., 1898. First edition. 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" in light peach wrappers though missing the front wrapper. 15 pp. Illustrations. Map. Although it eventually became a transcontinental railroad, the railroad that became the Milwaukee Road began as the Milwaukee and Waukesha Railroad, whose goal was to link the developing Lake Michigan port city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin with the Mississippi River. The company incorporated in 1847, but changed its name to the Milwaukee and Mississippi Railroad in 1850 before construction began. A report to the Board of Directors explaining that the railroad is not completed to Waukesha as was expected and offering reasons for the delay in its completion. "Considering our small beginning, only a little over one year ago - that we have relied solely on the resources of the people of Wisconsin for the means of prosecuting this enterprise - without seeking foreign aid - with only the small contributions of each of our thousand Stockholders, and the credits based on the securities of our city and citizens, we have in that time completed the grade of our Road for twenty and a half miles, laid the Track, and brought into actual use the half of that distance - and will have the whole completed, and in successful operation, by the middle of February next." Information on estimated and actual costs of the First Division, extending the road from Milwaukee to Waukesha. It appears that actual costs far exceeded estimates, "but that has been the result of peculiar circumstances under which the work has been performed, and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Falkner, J. Meade.
London; Edward Arnold, 1898. INSCRIBED FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp. [8], 305, [1], [2] reviews, 32 catalogue. Publisher's maroon cloth with gilt titles to spine and upper board with armorial in silver and black to upper board. Spine faintly sunned and cover cloth lightly soiled, with bumped upper edge to upper board, wear at upper joint, and bruising to spine tips & corners. Inscribed by the Author to front paste-down in the month of publication: "E.L.D. Boyle. From the Author in grateful acknowledgement of valuable Services rendered on the High Seas. Nov 1898". Front free endpapers toned and a little scattered light foxing, otherwise contents clean. Commander Edward Louis Dalrymple Boyle (1864-1923), to whom the book is appropriately inscribed with a reference to the High Seas, had a lifelong career in the Royal Navy including the appointment as Naval Attache for South America during the Great War. Falkner (1858-1932) was employed on the board of engineering, shipbuilding and armaments company Armstrong Whitworth, whose works included supplying ships to the Royal Navy, so we assume a naval connection between the two. Moonfleet is the Falkner's second and best-known novel, a classic atmospheric smuggling adventure set on the mid eighteenth century Dorset coast and the inspiration for several films and television adaptations. Falkner has recently been the subject of a new biography by Richard Davenport-Hines printed for the Roxburghe Club; John Meade Falkner: Abnormal Romantic.

[RARE CIVIL WAR POSTER: NO AUTHOR GIVEN]
1898. Hartford, Connecticut: Calhoun Show Print, 18--(?). First Edition. Poster -- no binding. Very good. An EXCEEDINGLY RARE CIVIL WAR POSTER, being a color woodblock poster measuring approximately 212 centimeters by approximately 418 centimeters (approximately 83.46 inches by approximately 164.567 inches) captioned within the illustration "OFF TO THE WAR - '6-" and being a beautiful example of this RARE woodblock Theater Poster, possibly advertising a Play titled "Gettysburg" by Frank G. Campbell that was first performed in 1898. Such attribution was made by Swanns in an auction offering of only two sections of the Poster as a lot in a 2018 auction --- however the Library of Congress states that the poster may have advertised the Play titled "Her Atonement" by Anson P. Pound which Play as copyrighted in 1883). The Poster was created from individual wooden blocks produced separately for each color/scene, and being a brilliant example of late 19th century woodblock technology. The Poster was produced in 12 large sections using such woodblocks which sections would have been glued to a wall in proper order to advertise the Play to the public. As this example of the Poster was never used, the colors remain remarkably brilliant. The Poster shows some chipping, particularly to the edges/margins, some tears at the folds and fold corners, and some scattered separations of portions of some panels, fold lines, and some other general wear. Nevertheless, this is an ABSOLUTELY REMARKABLE SURVIVOR. WorldCat shows only one other copy of the complete poster, that being held by the … [Click Below for Full Description]
