        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      München, 22. IX. 1900. - 2½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Folio. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Gestatten Sie, daß ich Ihnen beifolgend zwei Manuskripte, vierstimmige Chorlieder in Canonform nach Gedichten von Martin Greif, auf den ja auch der 'Kunstwart' schon wiederholt hingewiesen[,] mit dem Anerbieten zur Reproduction in genannter Zeitschrift übersende. Gegenüber jener älteren Form der Komposition in Kanonform, wo man irgend ein kleines spruchartiges Gedicht in das Procrustesbett der streng contrapunktischen Form zwängte und es - so gut oder übel es ging - von x oder y Stimmen x oder y Mal absingen ließ, wie es selbst noch Brahms in seinen Canons für Frauenstimmen op 113 that, habe ich in vorliegenden Compositionen versucht, die Canonform nicht zum Selbstzweck, sondern zum Mittel des poetischen Ausdrucks zu machen [.]". - Edgar Istel war nach seinem Studium an der Kgl. Akademie der Tonkunst in München und bei Adolf Sandberger an der Universität München zunächst als Musikschriftsteller, Musiklehrer und Komponist tätig, ehe er 1913 nach Berlin übersiedelte, wo er als Dozent für Musikästhetik an der Humboldt-Akademie und an der Lessing-Hochschule sowie als Musikkritiker für den Ullstein-Verlag wirkte. "Seit 1920 lebte Istel in Madrid und betätigte sich dort neben seinem kompositorischen und musikschriftstellerischen Schaffen als Repräsentant des 'Verbandes deutscher Bühnenschriftsteller und Bühnenkomponisten' sowie der 'Gesellschaft der Autoren, Komponisten und Musikverleger in Wien'. Nach dem Ausbruch des Spanischen Bürgerkriegs emigrierte er zunächst nach Großbritannien, 1938 in die USA. Istel, der mit der amerikanischen Opernsängerin Janet Wylie verheiratet war, schrieb u. a. 'Das Libretto. Aufbau und Wirkung des Opernbuches' (1914, Neuaufl. 1922 unter dem Titel 'The Art of Writing Opera Librettos')" (DBE).

Hübsche Ansicht des ,Schlössli', eines grossen Wohnhauses der Familie Greuter. Bernhard Greuter (1745-1822) war Firmengründer und Erbauer der Greuter'schen Fabrik in Islikon.

Bernhard Greuter junior, der Enkelsohn des Gründers und später Johannes Egg, Verwandter und Firmenteilhaber. Mit dem Niedergang in den 1880er Jahren wurden die Fabriken stillgelegt und Liegenschaften in Islikon verkauft und teils abgebrochen. Das ,Schlössli' wird auch heute noch als Wohnhaus genutzt.

        Scenes from the Song of Hiawatha

      1900. COLERIDGE-TAYLOR, Samuel. Scenes from the Song of Hiawatha. No. II. The Death of Minnehaha. A Cantata for Soprano and Baritone Soli, Chorus, and Orchestra. The Words written by H. W. Longfellow. Op. 30, No. 2. [2], 113, [1] pp. Folio, 365 x 257 mm, bound in original publisher's maroon cloth spine and printed paper over boards. Preserved in half morocco box. London: Novello and Company, 1900. First Edition of the Full Score of The Death of Minnehaha, the second of the Scenes from the Song of Hiawatha. Samuel Coleridge-Taylor was born in London in 1875, the son of a doctor from Sierra Leone and an English mother. His musical talent was recognized at a young age, and he received his first major commission in 1898 from the Three Choirs Festival when Edward Elgar was unable to fulfill a commission and suggested the younger composer instead. Coleridge-Taylor responded with his Ballade in A minor, followed later the same year with the major success of Hiawatha's Wedding Feast. Coleridge-Taylor, who named his son Hiawatha, was the first composer to set the text of Longfellow's Song of Hiawatha (1855), a poem that was very popular in England at the time, to music. His four Hiawatha cantatas were first performed on separate occasions between 1898 and 1900; the present one was premièred on 26 October 1899. Occasional pencil or crayon performance markings. No copies at auction listed in ABPC CD ROM and 2 copies listed in OCLC. PROVENANCE: Dr. Allen K. Blackall with his signature on boards and front free endpaper. Blackall began his career in music as an organist of St Mary's, Warwick, in 1898 and was later conductor at the Birmingham Festival Choral Society 1904-1933.

        AUTOBIOGRAPHICA, WITH A GOSSIP ON THE ART OF PRINTING IN COLOURS

      N.P.: Privately printed, 1900. publisher's half brown morocco with cloth-covered boards, spine gilt, top edge gilt. large folio. publisher's half brown morocco with cloth-covered boards, spine gilt, top edge gilt. (ii), 32, (2) pages, 5 plates. First edition, one of a few copies printed by Vaughan's son in memory of his father (St Bride Catalogue p.921). W.E. Vaughan 1825 - ca. 1900) was a Brighton print dealer, the largest dealer south of London in the last half of the 19th century. His reminiscences deal with his business and the aesthetic aspects of hand-coloured prints. The five prints are excellent chromolithographs of famous 18th century prints. Levis, page 185-186, states that "this volume is quite rare. I have never seen but one copy." On page 32 is listed an obituary notice that appeared in The Times:- A correspondent writes :- "Collectors of coloured prints will hear with regret of the death of Mr. W.E. Vaughan, the well-known print dealer of Brighton, which occurred last week. There are few connoisseurs who have not added to their stores from his large and curious stock, and his pleasant room has been visited by most of the notables of the reign. Descended from a good old Welsh family, Mr. Vaughan had yet to fight his way up from a humble station. A gilder by trade, he early followed the bent of his taste for Bartolozzi's work, and every penny he could spare was spent on the master of stipple. At that time Vaughan had few competitors, and it was not until late years that he startled the sale-rooms by giving what was then the unheard-of price of £70 for a coloured engraving of 'Miss Farren.' He lived to have bid more than double that sum for similar prints. Mr Vaughan's judgement was so good than in any disputed point his opinion was frequently accepted as conclusive by the presiding powers at the London sale-rooms, and and as his character was as high as his eye was correct, purchasers of his stock always got good value for their money. Quick in sympathy, of gracious manner, and with a mind stored with an extroardinary variety of knowledge, Mr. Vaughan will be long remembered and regretted by all lovers of the subject to which he devoted his uncommon taste and high integrity.". Minor rubbing along edges.

        Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor

      London: Sampson Low, Marston and Company, n.d., ca. 1900 - Inscribed on the front free endpaper, "Mary C.J. Leith, from her affectionate cousin, A.C. Swinburne. April 1908." An evocative association copy - Mary C. J. Leith (ca. 1840-1926, née Gordon) was Swinburne's cousin and they were close during their childhood. Swinburne was apparently devastated when it was announced that Gordon was to marry Robert W. Disney Leith, which she did in 1865. The enduring relationship between John Ridd and Lorna Doone, established when the former was 12, would have resonated with Swinburne, and perhaps he hoped to remind his cousin of their own shared childhood with the gift of this book (SWINBURNE, ALGERNON CHARLES) Lynton Edition. 4to. Photogravure frontispiece portrait of the author, wood-engraved illustrations by F. Armstrong, W. Small, and W.H.J.

        [In Japanese] Kijaku kire honcho - Cut fabric samples for kimonos

      Japan: n.d., c.1900. Landscape quarto (205 × 305 mm). Japanese four-hole stab-stitched binding, original card wraps with mounted leather corners, calligraphic kanji title to front panel. Nearly 600 variously-sized swatches of woven and painted colour silk samples mounted on 100 leaves of thickish, textured paper The covers somewhat rubbed and creased, leather corners dry and scuffed, some samples with minor staining from the mounting paste, and with some fraying at the edges, but overall very good. Remarkable salesman's sample catalogue for painted and woven silks for Japanese kimonos during the late Meiji period. The date range that is suggested by the style of binding, and the types of textiles sampled would be in the last decade of so of the nineteenth century. The samples themselves are not uniform in shape or size, having the appearance rather of being scraps from the cutting floor, typical practice in the equivalent catalogues in the West during the late Victorian era. This would appear to be the sample-book for the purple-lavender-blue section of the textile spectrum. The selection of samples show a range of weaving and dying techniques, some show Katagami Kimono textile stencil art, in which the patterns have been created by rice paste pressed through heavy oiled stencils onto the silk before dying, these often being darker coloured patterns typical for summer yukata kimonos; some are more typical of the roketsuzome batik-style process; a range of motifs drawn from the natural world predominate, chrysanthemums, cherry blossoms, ferns and dragonflies; many examples show light brocading. In itself an intriguing object, that also offers glimpses into Japanese styles at the turn of the twentieth century.

Two volumes. 1 f., [iii]-x, [6], 161; 1 f., [v]-xi, [5], [163]-361 pp. With 56 full-page nature prints of butterfly and moth wings, and over 400 illustrations in the text. 8vo., 245 x 171 mm, specially bound for H.J. Goodwin in contemporary 3/4 red morocco over marbled boards. a.e.g. Boston: J.B. Millet Co., [1900]. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, limited to 500 copies. This beautiful copy of Denton's Butterflies represents a major achievement in the field of nature printing in America. It is the first systematic study of butterflies and moths in North America and is special for its unique nature printing technique and hand-colouring. At the recent exhibition of Nature Printing / Color Printing In The Nineteenth Century at University Of Delaware Library, Denton's Butterflies was described as containing the "most successful of all" nature-printed illustrations. According to the preface, the author personally collected over 50,000 butterflies and moths from all parts of the United States for this edition. He then made "Nature Prints" from the direct transfer of the specimens themselves. Denton writes: "The scales of the wings of the insects are transferred onto paper, while the bodies are printed from engravings and afterwards coloured by hand." An excellent copy in immaculate condition. Bennett 33. Nissen 1079.

        Tales of the Wonder Club. By "DryasDust"

      [London]: Harrison and Sons, [1899-1900] - A classic collection of tales of the supernatural, first issued here by "Dryasdust", then later, in 1903, under the name of M.Y. Halidom. "M.Y. Halidom, itself a pseudonym, without doubt, is also a 'pen-name' of 'Dryasdust', whose 'Tales of the Wonder Club', a rare and much-sought fantasy book, was the source of much speculation as to its author, at the turn of the century. The problem has never been satisfactorily solved and the talented author is an unknown, even today. There is little room to doubt that it is someone of importance in the literary world" (Wolff) In 2005, British businessman and writer Alexander Huth (1838-1914) was identified as the author of Tales of the Wonder Club under his psuedonyms "Dryasdust" and "M.Y. Halidom" First edition. 3 vols., 8vo. Illustrated by John Jellicoe and Val Prince after designs by the author. In publisher's gilt-stamped plum cloth. Spine of first volume faded to brown, corners bumped, but overall a bright, tight set. Wolff 7640; Bleiler: Guide To Supernatural Fiction, 565 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
