        Saratsin

      1899. First Edition . Signed. CUI, Cesar. Saratsin. Opera in Four Acts. Moscow: Jurgenson, (1899). Quarto, contemporary half dark brown morocco. $2600.First edition of the piano-vocal score, inscribed by the composer on the title page to the Russian bass Smirnov, the original Dyunia, in Russian: “To the ‘brave knight DyuniaÂ’ in fond memories, 1899, C. Cui.”In the mid-19th century, Cui became associated with a group of composers that became known as the moguchaya kuchka, or “Mighty Handful.” Centering on Balakirev, the group included Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Mussorsky. A strong partisan of nationalism in Russian music, his extensive music criticism advocated the use of Russian themes and the rejection of foreign influences in Russian music. Yet CuiÂ’s own music often used foreign sources, and showed the influence of composers such as Meyerbeer: the libretto for Saratsin, for instance, is based on DumasÂ’ story “Charles VII chez ses grands vassaux.” Text and inscriptions in Russian. A previous owner has penned on the cast list page: “Performed for the first time in the Mariinsky Theatre, November 2nd, 1899 in Petersburg,” and also written the original Russian singerÂ’s names next to their respective printed roles. Performance notations in pencil on two pages.Interior fine, light wear to extremities of marbled boards. An extremely good inscribed copy.

        Watercolour of Scotti as Falstaff by Lucien Besche

      Oval portrait of Antonio Scotti, Neapolitan baritone as Verdi's Falstaff. Signed lower right in red watercolour 'L Besche'. Approx 33 cms x 28 cms, mounted. Scotti sang with the New York Metropolitan Opera for over 30 years but also undertook roles in London and Italy. The artist Lucien Besche was, amongst other things a costume designer in the late Victorian period. The portrait can be dated to 1899 from performances of Scotti at La Scala in Milan where he first sang the role in that year. Correspondence to this effect with the Museo Teatrale alla Scala pasted to back of mount. A lovely thing evocatively capturing Scotti at the peak of his career in a major role.

Provenienza: studio dell'artista, fa riferimento al catalogo Atelier Louis Anquetin (Thierry de Maigret, 28/11/08). Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny nato nel 1861 e morto a Parigi nel 1932, è un importante pittore francese. Ha iniziato la sua carriera con artisti d'avanguardia come Vincent van Gogh e Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Con Émile Bernard, egli è l'inventore del cloisonnisme. Dal 1884-1893, Louis Anquetin continua ad esplorare nuove opportunità introdotte dal rilascio di Impressionismo in pittura francese. Dal 1893, dopo un lungo confronto con i "vecchi maestri", egli adotta una pittorica pregiudizio che schiererà il movimento artistico in generale, e portare via dai suoi amici. Abbagliato dalla arte barocca e la sua forza creativa, così pensa i suoi amici d'infanzia sono stati coinvolti in un percorso che porta alla morte della pittura. Crede in un "quadro perfetto", che si incarna nelle re-ricordare le lezioni di Michelangelo e Rubens, tra gli altri. Il suo lavoro diventa più convenzionale, ha sostenuto un ritorno al business, offrendo a riflettere sulle condizioni a priori di ogni possibile forma d'arte secondo le regole della prospettiva e dell'anatomia, come praticato dai maestri XVI e XVII secolo. Lasciando solo alcune opere che possono essere descritte come monumentale, Anquetin gira prolifico con i suoi numerosi studi e bozzetti, che ha ritenuto che il progetto è stato "un mezzo molto potente mezzo di espressione" fondamento obbligatoria di tutte le arti plastiche. Lavorare volontariamente il conto alla rovescia del suo tempo, Louis Anquetin reso possibile l'esistenza di una figurazione moderna originale. Con la sua ostinazione e la sua passione per la pittura, ha infatti impedito è completamente chiuso la strada alla grande tradizione occidentale. Si possono ammirare le sue opere in numerosi musei prestigiosi come il Musée d'Orsay e il Louvre di Parigi, San Francisco e Detroit, il Museo dell'Ermitage di San Pietroburgo, la National Gallery e la Tate Londra, ecc.

        THE CONVERSION OF PAULA BY ST. JEROME - Alma-Tadema, 1899.

      THE CONVERSION OF PAULA BY ST. JEROME Heliogravure uitgegeven in 1899 door Arthur Tooth & Sons te Londen naar het schilderij (Opus CCCL) van Lourens Alma-Tadema, later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: ca. 37,5 x 82 cm.Het schilderij waarnaar deze gravure is gemaakt, was onderdeel van de Royal Academy?s Summer Exhibition in 1898 en werd vanwege z?n uitmuntende techniek en schoonheid ontvangen als meesterwerk. Kunstcriticus F.G. Stephens beschouwde The Conversion of Paula als Alma-Tadema's topstuk. Kunsthandel Arthur Tooth & Sons, opdrachtgever voor het schilderij, had daarmee een nieuwe troef in handen. Volgens de brieven van Alma-Tadema aan Stephens kwam het schilderij niet zonder problemen tot stand en was hij erg content met de lofbetuiging.Paula, gekleed in een purper en amber met goud geweven gewaad, leunt achterover op een altaar gewijd aan Bacchus. Ze luistert naar de charmante maar ascetische Hi?ronymus die haar vertelt over het Christendom. Later verlaat Paula de Bacchus cult om deze nieuwe religie te volgen. Het werk vertegenwoordigt een van de weinig christelijk getinte onderwerpen in Alma-Tadema's oeuvre. Tien jaar eerder was hij bekritiseerd voor het gebrek aan ?moral purpose? in zijn schilderij The roses of Heliogabalus.Prijs: ? 3.150,- (incl. lijst).

This volume is accompanied by a scrapbook that belonged to Henry Owen Holt, a member of the Second Regiment of Virginia infantry that saw action in the Spanish-American War. The book contains numerous newspaper clippings tracking the participation of Virginian military units in the conflict, with a focus on the Second Regiment.

        Writings of Mark Twain

      1899. TWAIN, Mark. The Writings of Mark Twain. Hartford: American Publishing Co., 1899-1907. Twenty-five volumes. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter blue morocco gilt, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $39,000.Edition de Luxe, number 542 of 1000 copies. This set with manuscript pages of The Gilded Age, one each by Twain and by collaborator Charles Dudley Warner, tipped in to Volume X. This set also with a tipped-in double signature on the limitation leaf, “S.L. Clemens (Mark Twain),” and an autograph letter tipped to the blank opposite the limitation page, from Twain to his publisher, “Feb. 16. Friend Bliss: Please mail or send in your own way, a cloth copy of Innocents Abroad to Sidney Moffett, New Market, Shenendoah Co, Va, & charge to my Act. Yours, Mark.” On the reverse is written in a different hand: “Mark Twain Feb. 16, Â’75.” Very handsomely bound.Leaves of the Gilded Age manuscripts of Twain and Warner were sometimes bound into sets of the Edition de Luxe, and especially the 512 sets called the ""Autograph Edition."" Twain's manuscript leaf, from only six pages into the work (appearing on p. 18 here) begins, ""Â… for a coonskin & a cake of beeswax to an old dame in linsey-woolsey, put his letter away, & went into the kitchen. His wife was there, constructing some dried apple pies; a slovenly urchin of ten was dreaming over a rude weather-vane of his own contrivingÂ…"" ""Friend Bliss"" mentioned in the autograph letter is Elisha Bliss (1822-80), manager of the American Publishing Company which published the first five Twain titles between 1869 and 1880. Bliss marketed authors through subscription sales, a technique that fulfilled his goal of making Twain ""the people's author"" (Kaplan, 61). ""His decision to chance a work of humor with his company was a bold one, but his instinct that Mark Twain had a ready-made audienceÂ… proved accurate and enormously profitableÂ…. Bliss can claim the credit for recognizing Mark Twain's proper audience, placing his literature in the hands of that audience, and educating his apprentice author in the mechanics of subscription publication. His influence lurksÂ… behind the humorist's self-definition of his role as the 'People's Author' and the spokesman for the 'mighty mass of the uncultivatedÂ…"" (Wilson, 90-91). At the end of the 19th-century subscription sales began to lose ground to urban bookstores. Frank Bliss, Elisha's heir, shed subscription booklists and began issuing expensive deluxe editions, none more important than this one. ""As if to mark the close of a literary era,"" Frank supervised the production of this limited edition set and, according to Twain, ""appeared to be having an easy time selling it, President McKinley and other big guns have subscribed"" (Kaplan, 355). This superb set contains all of Twain's work, including novels, essays and sketches. Each volume with a tissue-guarded frontispiece and a vignette title page. With over 100 tissue-guarded plates, including etchings by W. H. W. Bicknell and photogravures from photographs and from drawings by Peter Newell, E. W. Kemble, B. West Clinedinst, Dan Beard, W. T. Smedley, F. M. Senior, F. T. Merrill, F. Luis Mora, E. H. Garrett, J. G. Brown, F. V. DuMond, and others. These plates were used for the first time in this set and again in various later editions issued by the American Publishing Company (see BAL 3456). Laid in to the first volume is a typed letter, dated in 1940, to a Mrs. Daniel Jenks from a Walter Norman of Pittsfield, MA. Norman apparently worked with his father at the L. L. Brown Paper Company, a company apparently producing paper for the American Publishing Company. He makes reference in the letter to the paper used in the first 1000 copies of this set, deckle-edged paper with a ""Mark Twain"" watermark. Two volumes with expert repairs to headcaps. An extraordinary set with autograph material in fine condition.

        Origines de la France Contemporaine

      1899. TAINE, Hippolyte Adolphe. Les Origines de la France Contemporaine. Paris: Librairie Hachette, 1899-1900. Eleven volumes. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter red close-grain morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $1500.Mixed editions of the noted philosopher’s innovative analysis of French history, handsomely bound by Blackwell’s.Taine’s influence on French intellectual culture and literature was enormous. His Origines de la France Contemporaine is a monumental analysis of French history, claiming scientific objectivity. His attempt to understand the contemporary political and social reality of France through its origins in the ancien régime and the Revolution is simply grandiose. In conducting his research, Taine invented a unique form of inquiry, combining history (social, constitutional, and ideological) with sociology and psychology, supported by substantial references to archive material. Yet his innovative working methods have always aroused skepticism from all sides. “Several critics have done me the honor of fighting,” he declared, “or sometimes approving, what they call ‘my system.’ I have no such claim to a ‘system’: I try at best to have a method. A system is an explanation of a work in its entirety; a method is a way to work. I want to work in a certain way, nothing more. Instead of refuting rebuttal, I outline the process that is involved, and hope that it leads to truth. My method requires practice— if the scholar wants to try it out, he may decide on its effectiveness one way or the other.” Taine had a special relationship with the authors of his time, especially Émile Zola. “In page after page, including many of [Zola’s] most memorable writings, we are presented with what amounts to a mimesis of the interplay between sensation and imagination which Taine studied at great length and out of which, he believed, emerges the world of the mind” (Philip Walker). Signature of notable collector of English decorative arts Irwin Untermeyer, whose collection for the most part is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.Light patches of foxing to first few leaves. A beautifully bound set in near-fine condition.

        HUNGER

      London: Leonard Smithers and Co. 1899. First edition in English. First edition in English. Publisher’s original grey cloth with black titles and illustration [by W. T. Horton] to the upper board and spine. A very good or better copy, the binding square and firm with light bumping and minor fraying at the spine tips, the cloth a trifle darkened to the extremities and spine. The contents are entirely complete including the publisher’s 16 page catalogue dated Spring 1899, punctuated by Aubrey Beardsley’s Pegasus device to the final leaf. There is a previous owner’s name on the front endpaper which also has a couple of faint traces of [long removed] tape marks and light spotting to the prelims and margins throughout. With two hand corrections to the text and another to the price of this publication in the publisher’s catalogue. An excellent example, in original condition of the author’s first novel. The provenance evidence retained with this copy is somewhat intriguing and affords pleasant speculation. Laid in is an original trimmed photograph tipped on to card of the translator, “New Woman” writer and one time lover of the author Mary Chavelita Dunne (George Egerton). The card features the contemporary hand-stamp of The Flyfishers’ Club, London to the outer edge of which both her father Captain John J. Dunne and nephew belonged as members. Egerton herself was known to have taken great pleasure in the sport (as evident in her published correspondence from the time of her brief marriage to Egerton Clairmonte). The hand annotations within the book include a correction to the published price of Hunger in the Smithers catalogue along with a few alternate word choices within the text. Also laid in is a clipped newspaper review of the 1921 Duckworth re-issue. Whilst it is unclear how many copies of this first edition were issued, just a few months before the publisher’s bankruptcy, the evidence and institutional holdings would suggest this figure was low. Egerton in her translator’s note to the 1921 Duckworth reprint writes “I can therefore claim to have been somewhat of a seer, when I introduced the author to an English public, which never bought even the limited edition issued”. Further evidence that the original publication sunk without trace can be found in the accompanying newspaper review of the Duckworth edition which states ““Hunger”, his first novel published in the early eighteen-nineties, but only just issued here in translation”. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

        THE CONVERSION OF PAULA BY ST. JEROME - Alma-Tadema, 1899.

      THE CONVERSION OF PAULA BY ST. JEROME Heliogravure uitgegeven in 1899 door Arthur Tooth & Sons te Londen naar het schilderij (Opus CCCL) van Lourens Alma-Tadema, later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: ca. 37,5 x 82 cm.Het schilderij waarnaar deze gravure is gemaakt, was onderdeel van de Royal Academy?s Summer Exhibition in 1898 en werd vanwege z?n uitmuntende techniek en schoonheid ontvangen als meesterwerk. Kunstcriticus F.G. Stephens beschouwde The Conversion of Paula als Alma-Tadema's topstuk. Kunsthandel Arthur Tooth & Sons, opdrachtgever voor het schilderij, had daarmee een nieuwe troef in handen. Volgens de brieven van Alma-Tadema aan Stephens kwam het schilderij niet zonder problemen tot stand en was hij erg content met de lofbetuiging.Paula, gekleed in een purper en amber met goud geweven gewaad, leunt achterover op een altaar gewijd aan Bacchus. Ze luistert naar de charmante maar ascetische Hiëronymus die haar vertelt over het Christendom. Later verlaat Paula de Bacchus cult om deze nieuwe religie te volgen. Het werk vertegenwoordigt een van de weinig christelijk getinte onderwerpen in Alma-Tadema's oeuvre. Tien jaar eerder was hij bekritiseerd voor het gebrek aan ?moral purpose? in zijn schilderij The roses of Heliogabalus.Prijs: ? 3.150,- (incl. lijst).

        Razvitie kapitalizma v Rossii. Protsess obrazovaniia vnutrenniago rynka dlia krupnoi promyshlennosti [The Development of Capitalism in Russia. The Process of Formation of a Home Market for Large-Scale Industry].

      St. Petersburg, Mariia Ivanovna Vodovozova, 1899. - Large 8vo. (2), IX, (1), IV, 480, VIII, (2) pp. With 2 plates (1 folding); 1 letterpress table folded. Original printed wrappers. Very rare first edition of Lenin's most important and substantial work, constituting his only genuine contribution to economics. Written while he was in exile in Siberia and published the year after his first publication, the book established Lenin's reputation as a major Marxist theorist. "'The Development of Capitalism in Russia' is an example of Lenin's acute observation of all facets of the Russian economy. Its detailed documentation of the peculiarities of Russian capitalism - peculiarities stemming from the 'simultaneous existence of the most advanced forms of industry and semi-medieval forms of agriculture' - provides a concrete answer to the questions of how it was possible for the October revolution to succeed twenty years later and to what it owed its specific features" (Walicki). "[E]ven to this day the only comprehensive economic history of a country from a Marxist perspective" (The New Palgrave). 'The Development of Capitalism in Russia' was the result of tremendous research lasting more than three years. Lenin began intensive work on his book when in prison, soon after his arrest in connection with the case of the St. Petersburg "League of Struggle for the Emancipation of the Working Class", and finished it in the village of Shushenskoye where he lived in exile. He had, however, been gathering material for his book long before he began writing it. In his first letter from prison, dated January 2, 1896, Lenin wrote: "I have a plan that has occupied my mind considerably ever since I was arrested, increasingly so as time passes. I have long been engaged on an economic problem (that of the marketing of the products of manufacturing industry within the country), have selected some literature, drawn up a plan for its analysis and have even done some writing with a view to having my work published in book form, should its dimensions exceed those of a magazine article. I should be very unwilling to give up on the job, and am now, apparently, faced with the alternative of either writing it here or of abandoning it altogether." The draft of "The Development of Capitalism in Russia" was completed in August 1898. In a letter dated October 11, 1898, Lenin wrote: "I have finished drafting my markets, and I have begun to give them the finishing touches. The making of a fair copy will go on simultaneously, so that I have thought of sending it off in parts and of having it printed as it gets there in order to avoid delay; if they begin printing it in December, it might just be in time for this season." Much time was needed to give the manuscript the finishing touches and the job was completed at the end of January 1899. "The Development of Capitalism in Russia" came off the press at the end of March 1899, under the pseudonym of "Vladimir Ilyin." - Untrimmed and partly uncut in the original printed wrappers. Rebacked, preserving original printed spine lettering. Light soiling to extremities, occasional pencil markings, otherwise a fine and clean copy. Khronologicheskii ukazatel’ proizvedenii V. I.
