        [Op. 7]. Georg Büchners Wozzeck Oper in 3 Akten (15 Szenen)... Op. 7 Klavierauszug von Fritz Heinrich Klein. [Piano-vocal score]

      [Vienna]: Eigentum des Komponisten [=self-published] [PN AB4], [December 1922]. Folio. Full dark green cloth with upper wrapper laid down to upper board, spine with titling gilt.v1f. (title), 1f. (dedication in facsimile of Berg's handwriting: "Alma Maria Mahler zugeeignet"), 5 ("Szenarium" [table of contents]), [i] (list of orchestral instruments), [i] (cast list), 8 (instructions for performing the Sprechstimme), [9]-231 (music), [i] (printer's note: "Gestochen und gedruckt von der Waldheim-Eberle A.G. Wien") pp. Printed photographically from engraved plates. Plate numbers flush with outer edge on pages with footnotes or ossias; shortened to "B4" on p. 182. With "Universal-Edition A.G. Wien... Leipzig U.E. Nr. 7382" overpaste to title and upper wrapper. Binding slightly rubbed and bumped; upper wrapper slightly worn, stained and creased; lower wrapper lacking. Minor wear and soiling throughout; corners of first and last leaves slightly turned; final leaves dampstained at lower outer portion. Quite a good copy overall. Rare. First Edition, first issue. The overpastes by Universal-Edition were most probably added in April 1923, when the publisher acquired the rights and Berg ordered the printer, Waldheim-Eberle, to transfer all remaining copies to Universal. The first issue by Universal, using the same plates but with new plate number U.E. 7382 and new title, was released in 1926. The arranger of the edition, Fritz Heinrich Klein (1892-1977), was a student of Berg. The publication of the piano-vocal score was made possible by the financial support of Alma Mahler; hence, the dedication. Georg Büchner's (1813-1837) fragmentary drama Woyzeck [not "Wozzeck"] was written in 1836, but it remained unpublished until 1879 and did not see the stage before Max Reinhardt produced it in Munich in 1913. Its Viennese premiere, in 1914, prompted Berg to compose his opera--the first atonal opera in history and arguably the most successful one to this day. "Wozzeck was an epoch-making work that broke new ground musically, emotionally and dramatically. If Büchner's play was discovered and first performed at a time when its techniques and concerns seemed strikingly contemporary, it also appeared at a moment when its extreme states were peculiarly suited to Berg's musical language - an atonal language that, constantly hovering on the edge of tonal confirmation, becomes a perfect musical metaphor for the emotional and mental state of the opera's chief protagonist. The world that the opera presents is a projection of the tortured mind of Wozzeck himself: a world without normality or humanity and peopled by grotesques, a haunted world of strange, hallucinatory voices and visions and of natural phenomena indifferent to the human tragedy being played out." Douglas Jarman in Grove online.

        CAPTAIN BLOOD

      1922. [in N.C. Wyeth dust jacket] His Odyssey. With Frontispiece by N.C. Wyeth. Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1922. Original black cloth lettered in red, with the original dust jacket bearing the same Wyeth illustration as the frontispiece. First (American) Edition -- precedence uncertain between this and the undated Hutchinson edition in London -- of one of Sabatini's most popular works (along with SCARAMOUCHE from two years earlier). Based partly on historical fact (as was Sabatini's style), it is the tale of the Irish doctor Peter Blood who (like the real-life Henry Pitman) tended to wounded Monmouth rebels in the "Glorious Revolution" of 1688, and who (like the actual Monmouth rebels) was sentenced to "transportation" to Barbados, to be sold into slavery. Pitman escaped and was captured by pirates, after which he escaped again and ultimately made his way back to England to write his memoirs; the fictional Blood, on the other hand, joined the pirates and became a swashbuckling buccaneer -- the most feared pirate of the Caribbean -- but was ultimately rewarded by the British government for saving Jamaica from the French.~The color frontispiece portrait of Captain Blood is by N.C. Wyeth. This book was immensely popular in America, such that it was quickly made into a silent 1924 film by Vitagraph (now partly lost); the famous film, however, is the 1935 one starring Errol Flynn, Olivia deHavilland and Basil Rathbone.~This volume is in fine condition. The quite scarce dust jacket, repeating the Wyeth color illustration, properly bears the price of $2.00; it is in near-fine condition (colors slightly faded, very little wear other than a couple of short edge-tears, less soil than is usual). One of the two Sabatini must-haves, CAPTAIN BLOOD in a jacket this nice has become difficult to find.
