        Lettera autografa firmata a Domenico Lanza. Catania, 21 (?) di. 1899

      1899. 4 pagine in-8, nella tipica grafia verghiana di difficile lettura in cui si complimenta con il Lanza (torinese, 1868-1949), presidente della Commissione per l'esposizione d'arte drammatica per il progetto del ''Teatro d'Arte'' a Torino, che può essere considerato come il primo consapevole tentativo di creare un teatro stabile in Italia: ''Caro Lanza, Evviva voi! L'idea di questo Teatro d'Arte è eccellente, a Torino saprai farla valere .. costatare la necessità del teatro stabile''; seguono importanti considerazioni sulla situazione dell'attività teatrale in Italia. L'anno precedente il Lanza - il quale non riconobbe la grandezza di Pirandello - aveva invece manifestato il proprio apprezzamento per la produzione drammatica di Verga, richiedendogli ".. il più sollecitamente possibile .. un suo ritratto ..", avendo "la Commissione ordinatrice .. pensato di raccogliere i ritratti dei principali autori drammatici contemporanei italia".

In 1894 it incorporated as Pacific States Type Foundry, and continued until the earthquake and fire of 1906 destroyed the plant.

        Ukazanie Puti v Tsarstvie Nebesnoe. Pouchenie na Aleutsko-Lis'evskom jazike, sochinennoe svjaschennikom Ioannom Veniaminovym 1833 goda. [Indication to the Way to the Kingdom of Heaven, in Aleut language, composed by Priest Ioann Veniaminov in 1833].

      Moscow: Sinodalnaya Typografija, 1899. Octavo, [iv], 114 (paginated in Old Slavonic); old quarter sheep with marbled boards. Rare: evangelical text translated into the Aleut language (and printed in Cyrillic), prepared by Ivan Veniaminov-Popov (1797-1879), the great Orthodox missionary to the northern Pacific. Veniaminov was educated in Irkutsk and chose a theological vocation. As a young man he was selected for the Orthodox mission to Unalaska and arrived there in 1822 with his wife and children. While some conversion had been previously successful, it was feared by the Church that Christian and indigenous beliefs had become merged. The scope of the missionary project soon expanded to include the entire Alaskan peninsula and surrounding islands, a vast and often inhospitable geographical area. For ten years Veniaminov was an intrepid traveller, often using small craft and kayaks to visit coastal settlements, and travelling on foot through rugged mountainous regions. In 1832 he was appointed to a relatively sedentary position at Sitka as minister to the Tlingit of the Northwest Coast.Veniaminov was a skilled linguist fluent in several dialects, he prepared this evangelical text in the Aleut language which was first published by the Moscow Synod in 1840 and later in 1899 (the present edition). Both editions are rare. As a pioneer apostle to the frozen north, Veniaminov was canonized Saint Innocent and holds a cherished place in the history of the Orthodox Church. Fine.

        [Cendrillon]. Les Mandores. Autograph musical manuscript, being part of a ballet divertissement from act 2 of the composer's opera Cendrillon. Piano reduction. With an autograph note signed in Massenet's hand on a separate leaf: "Quelques mesures manuscriptes du 2e acte de "Cendrillon" (1898) Paris 3 Nov. 1910."

      Folio (350 x 270 mm). Modern maroon morocco with marbled boards. 4 pp., notated in ink on 20-stave music paper with blindstamp of H. Lard-Esnault Ed. Bellamy sr, Paris on one side of the leaf only. A fair copy of a piano reduction of "Les Mandores" in A major, 3/4 time. Tempo: "Assez Modéré (sans lenteur)"; metronome mark: "120 = [quarter note]." Autograph note to upper left corner of p. 1: "3ème entrée." Several erasures. Cautionary key and time signature for continuation after final double bar (D minor, 12/8 time). System breaks and pagination marked up in pencil in an unknown hand, both matching pp. 172-75 of the first edition of the piano-vocal score published in Paris by Heugel in 1899. The markup, as well as the cautionary key and time signatures at the end, allow for the conclusion that the present copy is part of the engraver's copy of the opera. All leaves guarded and with early horizontal crease; slightly browned; small stain to final blank page. In very good condition overall. "Les Mandores" is part of an extended ballet divertissement in the second act of Massenet's opera Cendrillon. It is not included in Massenet's original manuscript piano-vocal score, dated 1895 (Bibliothèque nationale de France, département Bibliothèque-musée de l'opéra, RES-563); there, the "2ème entrée" of the divertissement ("Le Fiancés") is immediately followed by "Le Rigodon du Roy," counted as "3ème entrée." In the first edition "Les Mandores" appears as the "3ème entrée" (pp. 172-75) and another new movement, "La Florentine," as the "4-ème entrée" (pp. 176-79); the "Rigodon du Roy" is renumbered as the "5-ème entrée" (starting at p. 180 ). The autograph manuscript at the Bibliothèque nationale is also notated on one side of the leaf only, is on the same paper as the present manuscript, and carries engraver's marks in the same hand. System breaks and page breaks match those of the first edition; pagination, however, does not. It appears that Heugel prepared, or at least planned, an earlier edition based solely on the manuscript in the Bibliothèque nationale, but as the premiere was delayed by several years, the publisher apparently put the project on hold. In the interim, Massenet added the new entrée (and made other changes as well), necessitating changes to the pagination of the printed score.

        Three rare pieces relating to Cook's memorial at Kurnell, Botany Bay

      Sydney: various dates, 1871, 1881, &, 1899. Three ephemeral pieces, a hand-lettered illuminated address and two publications; preserved in a handsome folding calf box. An interesting group of three rare pieces of ephemera relating to the commemoration of Captain Cook at Kurnell and including important pieces relating to Thomas Holt's obelisk, built in 1871. The highlight of the group is undoubtedly the manuscript illuminated presentation address to HRH Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, on the occasion of his visit in 1881.The prince was, at the time of his visit to Australia, second-in-line to the throne, but predeceased both Victoria and his father Edward VII. Scandal surrounds his murky death in 1891, and he remains a popular - if unlikely - candidate for Jack the Ripper. As this small group shows, the second half of the nineteenth-century saw Kurnell become the focus of the burgeoning fascination with Cook.1. "Presented to His Royal Highness Prince Albert Victor Christian Edward by the Honorable Thomas Holt... in commemoration of a visit to the Monument of Captain Cook Botany. 9th August 1881". Quarto illuminated address folded to 4 pp. booklet, a few spots but fine, hand-drawn and coloured, lettering heightened in gilt. Presentation address with hand-drawn view of the memorial. Ornamental borders by Mrs Forde of Sydney, and the address illuminated by George Relph.2. "Captain Cook's Landing in Botany Bay, with Fac-simile of Cook's Chart... Extracted from The Illustrated Sydney News and Sydney Morning Herald", Sydney: Gibbs, Shallard, and Co., n.d. but 1871. Square octavo, 12 pp., a few spots, modern bookplate and owner's stamp, owner's name torn away from front wrapper, not affecting text; printed chart and engraving, very good. Shows the obelisk erected by Thomas Holt at Cook's landing place, as well as a version of Cook's chart of Botany Bay. The text has long quotes from Cook's journals, as well as epigraphs from the poetry of Barron Field; this must be one of the earliest printings of any section of Cook's original journals. Rare: held in National Library and State Library of New South Wales (Beddie, 3045).3. "Dedication of Captain Cook's Landing Place. Kurnell, Botany Bay", Sydney, Department of Lands, November 1899. Small octavo, folding plate of the landing place, frontispiece, folding chart of Botany Bay, illustrated, bookplate; in dark roan with gilt lettering, scuffed at spine. Attractive souvenir of the grand opening of the Kurnell monument to Captain Cook by the Lieutenant Governor, Sir Frederick Darley (Beddie, 3053).

        Tales of The Wonder Club.

      London; Harrison and Sons. 1899-1900. First Edition. 3 vols. 8vo. Publisher's original maroon cloth titled in gilt. Spines uniformly faded, some light edgewear, bumping and light fraying to spine ends. A very good, handsome and respectable set of a scarce collection of wonderful spine chilling tales and dramas. Recounting the anecdote filled meetings of The Wonder Club at a coaching inn evocatively called "Ye Headless Ladye" the stories have such titles as "The Pigmy Queen" and "Lost in The Catacombs", a frequently rather obscure stew of gothic melodrama, horror and fantasy, not unlike the "Phantasmagoria" of 100 years earlier. The triple decker design of the books is also notable archaic, putting one in mind of a Sheridan Le Fanu first edition from 50 years earlier rather than the type of book design favoured by the end of the 19th century. The eminent scholars and unstoppable researchers at Tartarus Press's Wormwood magazine recently solved the mystery of the identity of "Dryasdust" (itself a reference to Scott's tedious but indispensable scholarly authority) and have laid the responsibility (occasionally blame might be in order) at the feet of Alexander Huth, a British businessman and self publishing author. A handsome set of a scarce and supremely entertaining collection.

        Gesetz der Urgesundheitskunde. Erneuert zu München, am 21. und 22. Iuli 1847.

      Lithographierter Einblattdruck. 32 x 38,5 cm. Über KVK nur in der Stadtbibliothek Mainz und im Stadtarchiv München nachweisbar. - Sehr seltener Einblattdruck mit den 10 Thesen des Gesundheitsapostels Ernst Mahner zur "Urgesundheitskunde", die hier auf zwei Tafeln in der Art der Gesetzestafeln Moses abgebildet sind. Ernst Mahner hatte einige Jahre in Deutschland aufsehenerregende Auftritte, er "wandelte mit priesterlicher Würde in langem Gewande barhäuptig, mit wallenden Haaren und mächtigem Vollbart, durch die Straßen. Er hatte seine Heilslehre nach Mosis Vorbild in zehn Gebote gekleidet, schlug sie öffentlich an, wie Luther seine Thesen, und verteidigte sie öffentlich in Vorträgen gegen mäßiges Eintrittsgeld. Er eiferte wider die geistigen Getränke und das stinkgiftige Schmauchkraut, rühmte das Wasser und pries bombastisch die gütige Natur nach der Art der heutigen Naturärzte" (Adolf Kussmaul in "Jugenderinnerungen eines alten Arztes", Stuttgart 1899). - Kussmaul weiß über den komischen Heiligen weiter zu berichten: "Böse Zungen sagten ihm nach, sein Gesetz sei strenger als der Apostel gegen sich selbst, und behaupteten fest, sie hätten Mahner im weltlichen Gewande bei Trüffelpastete und Sherry im Hinterstübchen eines Mannheimer Restaurants überrascht. - Es wurde uns erzählt, er steige jetzt mit seinem Meister täglich auf den Königsstuhl, um dort oben im Walde auf den Wegen und Halden Sonnenbäder zu nehmen sie liefen fast unbekleidet barfuß einher. Leider hatte die Polizei kein hygienisches Einsehen, sie verbot diese stärkenden Übungen, um den Damen der Stadt den verleideten Besuch des Königsstuhls wieder zu ermöglichen. Mahner war wirklich ein ungewöhnlich abgehärteter Mensch. Die Zeitungen berichteten von einem erstaunlichen Schauspiel, das er an einem sonnigen Wintertage den Bewohnern von Mainz bereitet hatte. Auf einer Eisscholle stehend, in Sandalen und nur an den Hüften bekleidet, soll er, einen Becher Rheinwasser schwingend, auf dem Strom an der Stadt vorbeigetrieben haben. - Der Abhärtung ungeachtet, hat er kein hohes Alter erreicht. Verkommen im Elend, starb er im städtischen Hospital zu Konstanz." - Etwas fleckig und leicht gebrauchsspurig. Mehrfach gefaltet.

        The Ballad of Reading Gaol. By C. 3.3. [Oscar Wilde].

      Leonard Smithers,, 1899. Later Edition of the First Edition [7th printing of June 1899]. London, Leonard Smithers, 1899. 8°. 31 pages. Original Hardcover (Quarter vellum with mustard boards). Unusually excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Interior also in marvellous condition. Exlbiris / Bookplate of film critic Leonie Graetz (Exlibris was made by the artist Hermann Westphal) to the front pastedown. Very Rare in this condition ! The Ballad of Reading Gaol is a poem by Oscar Wilde, written in exile either in Berneval-le-Grand or in Dieppe, France, after his release from Reading Gaol (pronounced "redding jail") on 19 May 1897. Wilde had been incarcerated in Reading, after being convicted of homosexual offences in 1895 and sentenced to two years' hard labour in prison.nnDuring his imprisonment, on Tuesday, 7 July 1896, a hanging took place. Charles Thomas Wooldridge had been a trooper in the Royal Horse Guards. He was convicted of cutting the throat of his wife, Laura Ellen, earlier that year at Clewer, near Windsor. He was aged only 30 when executed.nnWilde spent mid-1897 with Robert Ross in Berneval-le-Grand, where he wrote The Ballad of Reading Gaol. The poem narrates the execution of Wooldridge; it moves from an objective story-telling to symbolic identification with the prisoners as a whole. No attempt is made to assess the justice of the laws which convicted them, but rather the poem highlights the brutalisation of the punishment that all convicts share. Wilde juxtaposes the executed man and himself with the line "Yet each man kills the thing he loves". Wilde too was separated from his wife and sons. He adopted the proletarian ballad form, and suggested it be published in Reynold's Magazine, "because it circulates widely among the criminal classes ? to which I now belong ? for once I will be read by my peers ? a new experience for me".nnThe finished poem was published by Leonard Smithers on February 13, 1898 under the name C.3.3., which stood for cell block C, landing 3, cell 3. This ensured that Wilde's name ? by then notorious ? did not appear on the poem's front cover. It was not commonly known, until the 7th printing in June 1899, that C.3.3. was actually Wilde. The first edition, of 800 copies, sold out within a week, and Smithers announced that a second edition would be ready within another week; that was printed on February 24th, in 1000 copies, which also sold well. A third edition, of 99 numbered copies "signed by the author" was printed on March 4th, on the same day a fourth edition of 1200 ordinary copies was printed. A fifth edition of a 1000 copies was printed on March 17th, and a sixth edition was printed in 1000 copies on May 21st, 1898. So far the book's title page had identified the author only as C.3.3., although many reviewers, and of course those who bought the numbered and autographed third edition copies, knew that Wilde was the author, but the seventh edition, printed on June 23, 1899 actually revealed the author's identity, putting the name Oscar Wilde, in square brackets, below the C.3.3.. It brought him a small income in his remaining lifetime.nnThe poem consists of 109 stanzas of 6 lines, of 8-6-8-6-8-6 syllables, and rhyming a-b-c-b-d-b. Some stanzas incorporate rhymes within some of all of the 8-syllable lines. The whole poem is grouped into 6 untitled sections of 16, 13, 37, 23, 17 & 3 stanzas. A version with only 63 of the stanzas, divided into 4 sections of 15, 7, 22 & 19 stanzas, and allegedly based on the original draft, was included in the posthumous editions of Wilde's poetry edited by Robert Ross, "for the benefit of reciters and their audiences who have found the entire poem too long for declamation".
