        [Prince Igor, Arr.] Kniaz' Igor' Opera v IV deistviiakh s prologom Slova i muzyka A. P. Borodina Siuzhet zaimstvovan iz Slova o polku Igoreve [Prince Igor: opera in 4 acts with prologue. Words and music by A. P. Borodin. Subject matter taked from the Lay of the Host of Igor]. [Piano reduction without vocal parts but with Russian text overlay]

      [Leipzig... Sankt-Peterburg]: [M. P. Belaieff] [PNs 119, 120, 143, 182, 183], 1902. First Edition, later issue. Davis pp. 82 (illustration) and 86-87. Tentative date based on publisher's catalogue. First issue probably 1888 (printed date to upper wrapper). See upper wrapper of otherwise identical copy at IMSLP. The second plate number to p. 1, also in the copy at IMSLP, is a remnant from the piano-vocal score, which uses the identical plate (no singing on this page). The plates of the overture were also used for the piano-vocal score. In all varieties of Belaieff's original edition of Prince Igor (full score, piano-vocal score, the present arrangement, etc.), the wrapper assumes the function of a title, presenting the facts of publication (imprint, date, price list), while the title proper, unusually lavish in its style, is reduced to a merely decorative function and lacks basic content (including the imprint). Belaieff's original edition, including the present arrangement, represents the traditional version of Borodin's unfinished work, completed by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov and first performed at the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg in 1890.. Folio. Quarter textured black cloth with matching black boards, titling gilt to spine and former owner's name "Ebstrup" gilt to foot of upper board. 1f. (blank), 1f. (decorative chromolithographic title by A. Antipov), 1f. (calligraphic dedication to the memory of Glinka, in Cyrillic), 1f. (engraved portrait of Borodin with a 4-measure autograph musical quotation in facsimile from the prologue of the opera), [i] (preface explaining the posthumous completion of the opera in Russian, French, and German, with PN 119.120), [i] (blank), i-xvi (overture), 1-213, [i] (publisher's catalogue) pp. Printer's note to lower right corner of p. I: "Stich und Druck der Röder'schen Officin in Leipzig." Caption titles and scene descriptions in Russian (Cyrillic), French, and German. Stage directions and text underlay in Russian only. The preface credits the piano reduction to Felix Mikhaylovich Blumenfel'd (1863-1931). Watermark CGR*5. The basic plate number, found on all non-blank pages beginning with the preface, is 120. Several pages have other plate numbers added: the preface has the double plate number 119. 120; the overture has the triple plate number 120.119_143; no. 8, Pliaska polovetskikh devushek (Dance of the Polovtsian Maidens), and no. 17, Polovetskaia pliaska s khorom (Polovtsian Dance with Chorus), have the double plate number 120.382; no. 18, Polovetskii marsh (Polovtsian March) has triple plate number 119.120.383; the first page of no. 1, Prologue (p. 1), has a second, not easily legible, plate number (153). All plate numbers other than 119 and 120 appear in a smaller font. Publisher's catalogue "Compositions pour Piano publiés par M. P. Belaïeff à Leipzig," numbered "17," lists the works of Glazunov ("Glazounow") through the two piano sonatas, opp. 74 and 75 (1901); the most recent work is probably Vasily Kalafati's 5 Préludes, op. 7 (published 1902). Handstamp "Skandinavisk Musikforlag Kjøbenhavn" to foot of title. Cross in pencil to lower right corner of pp. 18 and 50; further pencil mark to lower right corner of p. 153. Boards worn; spine heavily chipped at head and tail; wrappers lacking. Uniformly browned; title foxed.

Words and music by A. P. Borodin. Subject matter taked from the Lay of the Host of Igor]. [Piano reduction without vocal parts but with Russian text overlay]

      [Leipzig... Sankt-Peterburg]: [M. P. Belaieff] [PNs 119, 120, 143, 182, 183], 1902. First Edition, later issue. Davis pp. 82 (illustration) and 86-87. Tentative date based on publisher's catalogue. First issue probably 1888 (printed date to upper wrapper). See upper wrapper of otherwise identical copy at IMSLP. The second plate number to p. 1, also in the copy at IMSLP, is a remnant from the piano-vocal score, which uses the identical plate (no singing on this page). The plates of the overture were also used for the piano-vocal score. In all varieties of Belaieff's original edition of Prince Igor (full score, piano-vocal score, the present arrangement, etc.), the wrapper assumes the function of a title, presenting the facts of publication (imprint, date, price list), while the title proper, unusually lavish in its style, is reduced to a merely decorative function and lacks basic content (including the imprint). Belaieff's original edition, including the present arrangement, represents the traditional version of Borodin's unfinished work, completed by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov and first performed at the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg in 1890.. Folio. Quarter textured black cloth with matching black boards, titling gilt to spine and former owner's name "Ebstrup" gilt to foot of upper board. 1f. (blank), 1f. (decorative chromolithographic title by A. Antipov), 1f. (calligraphic dedication to the memory of Glinka, in Cyrillic), 1f.

        SEVEN POEMS & TWO TRANSLATIONS

      Doves Press, Hammersmith 1902 - 233 x 165 mm. (9 1/4 x 6 1/2"). 55, [1] pp. ONE OF 325 COPIES on paper (and 25 on vellum). EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE DARK BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, IN THE STYLE OF THE DOVES BINDERY (stamp-signed and dated 1909 on rear turn-in), covers with gilt frame formed by interlocking double rules, side- and cornerpieces with oakleaf clusters accented by open circles and solid dots, large double gilt-rule lozenge in central panel, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with open circle at center, an oakleaf cluster extending above and below it, dots in corners, gilt vertical titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins with oakleaf clusters at corners, all edges gilt and gauffered with two rows of dots. In a blue cloth slipcase. Tomkinson, p. 45; Tidcombe DP-4. For the binding: Tidcombe, p. 463 The usual faint offsetting from the facing turn-ins on the front and rear free endpaper, half a dozen leaves with minor foxing just to the lower fore-edge corner, otherwise VERY FINE, the text clean, fresh, and smooth, and the lovely binding especially lustrous and virtually unworn. This is one of the 26 intriguing (and obviously uncommon) examples Tidcombe has identified as imitation Doves bindings, a group of handsomely executed volumes that continue to be mysterious. It differs from its fellows by offering significantly more in the way of gilt decoration. The work here is the fourth publication of the Doves Press, a volume that gathers together a number of poems by Tennyson, written at various times in his long life and all reflecting his abiding interest in Homer and Greek myth. The collection is framed by two short translations of passages from Homer's "Iliad," both featuring images of fire. Two original poems concern the tragic figure of Oenone, the first love of Paris, and two are inspired by the "Odyssey." The other three treat, in turn, the figure of the Theban seer Tiresias; Tithonus, lover of the goddess of Dawn; and the myth of the theft of Persephone by Death.
