Descripción: New York, John James Audubon, 1845-1848., 1848. 3 vols. Large folio (70 x 55 cm). With 150 striking coloured plates, all lithographed on stone, printed and coloured by J. T. Bowen of Philadelphia, after drawings by John James and John Woodhouse Audubon, and the backgrounds after Victor Audubon. Each volume also with a title-page and a list of contents. Late 19th-century black morocco, with gold-tooled spine, red cloth sides and marbled endpapers. First edition of the extraordinary coloured plates of quadrupeds by the world-famous French-American naturalist and painter John James Audubon (1785-1851), whose "Birds of America" was purchased at a Christie's auction for $11.5 million in March 2000, setting a world record for the most expensive book ever sold (surpassed only by the 1640 "Psalm Bay Book", sold for $14.2 million in November 2013). The plates in the present work are considered the finest animal prints ever published in America. Unlike the "Birds", it was produced entirely in the United States, making it the "largest successful color plate book project of 19th-century America" (Reese). - After the publication of his highly acclaimed "Birds of America", Audubon settled on the Hudson River and began working on the present series to document the animal life of North America. The plates were first published in 30 parts of 5 plates each, and three separately published accompanying text volumes, written by John Bachman, appeared between 1846 and 1854. A second edition was published in 1856, but "the first edition is by far the best" (Sabin). - Title pages show some small scuff marks, a few plates with minor, unobtrusively repaired tears along the edges. Binding skillfully restored. A complete set, with most plates in fine condition. Nissen, ZBI 162. Buchanan, pp. 147-154. Reese 36. Sabin 2367. Cf. Howgego II, A19 (p. 15, 1846-54).

Descripción: [Darmstadt, c. 1453-1455]., 1455. German (Rhenish Franconian) manuscript on vellum. 12 unnumbered ff., 30 lines to a page, but 23 lines to final page. Gothic rotunda, first line (title) in red ink, three-line fleuronnée initial in blue ink with red penwork. Rubricated throughout in majuscules. Two gatherings: the first, a quire of 5 (withouth the first blank); the second, a quire of 2s (without the final blank). First and last leaf trimmed to a guard. Fifth leaf has signature "a4" and eighth leaf "b" in lower right corner. Later pagination in pencil. Stiff vellum binding with fore-edge flap, longstitch (16th century?). Stored in elaborate gilt brown morocco case by Riviere & Son. Small 4to (145 x 135 mm). The account of Count Philip's pilgrimage to the Holy Land is preserved in two traditions: the present prose version ("Stede und Tage reyse czu dem helgen grabe"), and in a versification ("Hodoeporicon") commissioned by Count Philip and completed in 1477 by Erhart Wameszhafft, a professional poet. While Wameszhafft's Hodoeporicon has survived in four copies, this is the only known manuscript of the prose version. Long considered lost, the ms. is mentioned in 1863 as being in the collection of Johannes Leichtle of Kempten, Bavaria. In 1882, R. Röhricht and H. Meisner published the text with a brief introduction, based on a transcription; after this, the manuscript's whereabouts were unknown, even though Prof. Silvia Schmitz, of Aachen, published a monograph on the text. A modern critical edition remains to be produced. - The authorship of this prose text is ascribed to Siegfried of Gelnhausen, an educated Katzenelnbogen steward who in all likelihood accompanied Count Philip on his journey as his chronicler and treasurer. Prof. Schmitz dates the prose version to c. 1434/1438, describing this not as the author's original manuscript, but rather a fair copy prepared by an anonymous Katzenelnbogen scribe around 1453/55. - Count Philip I of Katzenelnbogen (the Elder) was the last male descendant of one of the most influential noble families in Germany. Their wealth was based largely on their grasp on the toll duties for passage along the Rhine. Philip undertook his travel to the Holy Land at the request of his father, following a 200-year family tradition. His party included the chronicler as well as nine additional noblemen, five of whom are known by name: Bernhard Kreis de Lindenfels and Konrad de Frankenstein, of Darmstadt; Daniel de Mudersbach from the Lahn territory, and the brothers Albrecht and Gaudentius de Rechberg from Wuerttemberg. They left Darmstadt on 14 July 1433 and arrived at Venice sixteen days later. On 10 August the group sailed to Crete and onwards to Alexandria. Here begins the pilgrimage proper, and the chronicler records the visits to the holy places. The ensuing boat trip from Fuah to the outskirts of Cairo contains a description of the river Nile, which is compared with the Rhine, though with crocodiles (called "lyntworme", dragons). In Cairo the pilgrims visit the holy places and the great pyramid, and are surprised to encounter an elephant and two giraffes. En route from Cairo to the Red Sea they join a camel caravan for five days. At the monastery of St. Catherine the knightly accolade is conferred upon them. Three days later the Hessian pilgrims leave the cloister and, travelling through Darum, Gaza, Hebron, and Bethlehem, arrive at Jerusalem on 12 November 1433. During their eight-day sojourn they visited the Holy Sepulchre as well as all the other holy sites (of which the writer gives a long list). On 22 November the pilgrims intended to sail back to Italy from Jaffa, but due to a storm they changed their plans and journeyed to Beirut and Damascus cross-country. Reaching the coast, they boarded a galley and sailed for Rhodes, where they arrived on 12 January 1434. Delayed by another heavy storm, Katzenelnbogen and his companions finally reached Italy via Crete and Corfu. They reached home on 3 May. - Provenance: 1) Count Philipp I of K.

Descripción: Moscow, 14. IX. 1933., 1933. 4to. 3½ pp. on 2 ff. With autogr. envelope. In Russian, to his third wife, Natalja, on a day he and Ivan Vassilyevitch Kljun spent together attending an exhibition of the Red Workers' and Peasants' Army and visiting officials. Kljun urged him to have his hair cut, as Malevich resembled a "savage". They failed to meet Lobanov, who wanted a landscape. "[.] You cannot imagine my sentiments. What else should I do, and how wait? I am completely starved, and although I have eaten quite well these two days at Ivan Vassilyevitch's, there is no way I might be satiated, and after all, I cannot live at his place, and there is nowhere for me to go. I still have no money to go to Nemchinovka and stay there overnight [.] It's simply a nightmare when the thought turns up that something might happen to me, a severe mental illness might afflict me. Tomorrow I will try to see mother, maybe I can raise some money there [.]". Also, Malevich mentions his difficult relationship with his brother, and that he avoids seeing him: "That's what it amounts to, when a man has not a penny, they all start to lecture you and call you a fool [.] Yes, this is hard indeed for me; when people find out that you have to money, they change their ways entirely. [.]" (transl.). Nº de ref. de la librería 32596

Descripción: San Francisco de Paula (Cuba) and Madrid, 1953-1955., 1955. Large 4to. Altogether 4¼ pp. on 5 pp. With one autogr. envelope. To George Brown, the owner of a gymnasium in Manhattan, Hemingway's personal trainer, boxing coach, and friend. - I: Hemingway's affection for his sporting pal is evident in this revealing and highly personal letter, written shortly before Ernest and Mary left for an African safari: "How are you kid? Mary sends her best. We are fine and in very good shape and think of you often. Were out on a trip together on the boat for two weeks and we go to bed every night after it gets dark and have plenty of time to talk and to sleep good [.]". Hemingway then gives news of his sons and mentions his youngest son ("Gig"), who, in his early twenties, was turning violently hostile to his father: "I am sorry I spoke against Gig since he is a friend of yours and used to be of mine as well as my favorite son. But he changed very strange very fast. As bad as though the devil was managing him. I couldn't ever see him again; not even to go and see him hanged. But if he seems good to you, O.K. I haven't heard from him since last November when he came of age [.]" (Finca Vigia, San Francisco de Paula, Cuba, 12 May 1953). - II: Written on the eve of the latter's visit to Cuba and while preparations are being made for the filming of "The Old Man And The Sea": "George you can't have any confidence in any of those characters. They are all tighter than a hogs ass in fly time. That Goldwyn kid was nice as could be when it was a question of seeing us and thus becoming an old pal of old Ernie [ ]" (ibid., 18 August 1955). - III: Written from his sickbed. Preparations were still being made for the film, and Hemingway had spent September trying to get actions shots of leaping marlins for the producer Leland Hayward. Apparently, too, Hemingway was making an effort to get Brown involved in getting Spencer Tracy in shape, for he writes: "I am very sorry about [Peter] Viertel [who wrote the screenplay] behaving so carelessly. He is a very selfish boy but I think he has a little bit of an excuse in that he was with Zinneman on the script and was expecting you out there. While Zinneman was down here we discussed the whole thing about your getting Spencer in shape and agreed it was absolutely necessary and we spoke about it again on the long distance phone [ ]" (ibid., 25 November 1955; with several autograph lines in pencil). - IV: In early 1954 Ernest and Mary Hemingway suffered two near-fatal plane crashes in Uganda, and Hemingway's injuries were extensive (according to Carlos Baker, "The crash at Butiaba and the fire at Shimoni had [.] left him no more than a shadow of his former vigor"). "Just got your letter of Jan 14 George forwarded back from Nairobi. Sure glad you liked the first hooks piece with the pictures. We'd only been out 4-5 weeks then and I wasn't really in shape. In 5 months of that stuff got down to under 190 before those crashes. Now no exercise since Jan 23-24th except early necessary damaging exercise (pitching rocks left-handed with a busted back type of exercise). Good thing I was in shape though. All doctors look at you like some kind of freak like Joe Grimm because you are alive. Am tired of being so smashed up. But always remember you and your head. We beat this one I guess but the smashed vertebrae etc is a no good rap [ ]" ([Madrid], 24 May 1954). - I to III: On personal stationery of Finca Vigia; IV: on sheet of hotel stationery ("Palace Hotel, Madrid"). - Partly light-soiled, otherwise in fine condition.

Descripción: Fischer,, Berlin, 1919. Priv. Hld. der Zeit. 8°. Berlin, Fischer, 1919. 8°. 267 + 1 S. Priv. Hld. der Zeit. EA. WG II 1. Mit eighd. Widm. Jahnns an Fred A. Angermayer (1889 - 1951). Regiebuch mit zahlreichen Streichungen und einigen Anmerkungen von der Hand Bertolt Brechts und Arnolt Bronnens. Dies über den Rückentitel und hds. Vergleiche erschließbar. - Leichte Gbrsp. - Auf dem Programm der Erstaufführung des Stückes 1923 in Berlin wird Bronnen als alleiniger Regisseur genannt. Allein aus dem Beitrag zu einer Festschrift anläßlich des 60. Geburtstages Jahnns, schreibt Brecht darüber, auch - neben Jahnn - bei den Proben dabeigewesen zu sein und diese geleitet zu haben. Hier nun ein Beleg für diese Behauptung. - Jahnn (1894 - 1954): die Begegnung mit Gottlieb Harms (1893-1931) noch auf der Schule war das prägende Jugenderlebnis. Aus Protest verließen beide Deutschland und verbrachten die Jahre 1915-18 in Norwegen. Hier fanden sie zu jener Weltanschauung, die nach der Rückkehr nach Deutschland 1919 zur Gründung der "Glaubensgemeinde Ugrino" führte. Resakralisierung des Daseins und ein Wiederaufrichten der Schöpfungstotalität war das Ziel Jahnns und seiner Freunde. Bedeutend war sein Beitrag zur Orgelreformbewegung der zwanziger Jahre. Als Orgelbauer renovierte und entwarf er mehr als hundert Instrumente, von denen sich heute lediglich die Lichtwark-Orgel (Heinrich-Hertz-Schule, Hamburg) in einem spielfähigen Zustand befindet. Schon seit seinem 14. Lebensjahr hat er Romane und Dramen geschrieben. In diesen jugendlichen Inszenierungen zum Dichter ist der Weg zum späteren Werk eingeschlagen: der Versuch, menschlichem Handeln und Erleiden bis in die verschwiegensten Finsternisse der Seele zu folgen, der Jahnn zum Außenseiter und Einzelgänger machen sollte. Seine ersten gültigen Werke - die Dramen Pastor Ephraim Magnus (1919), Die Krönung Richards III. (1921) und Medea (1926) - suchen die Wahrheit im Exzeß, in der Überschreitung der bürgerlichen Ordnung und stürzen Figuren wie Zuschauer in "vulkanische Lebensgefahr" (Oskar Loerke) . 1920 bekam Hans Henny Jahnn den Kleist-Preis für sein Drama Pastor Ephraim Magnus. Das machte ihn einerseits schlagartig als Dichter bekannt, andererseits erntete er viel Kritik aus konservativen und kirchlichen Kreisen für dieses Werk wegen seines als anstößig empfundenen Inhaltes in Bezug auf die Brutalität der Szenen, Darstellung sexueller Gewalt und die Nutzung und bewusste Überzeichnung und Übertragung des Kreuzigungstodes auf seine Hauptfigur, was ihm späterhin sein Leben als Orgelbauer schwer machte.

To the publisher Antonio Stella in Milan, enquiring whether his essay on "il Diogini del Mai" (i.e., Mai's discovery of Dionysius of Halicarnassus) might be included in the next issue of the "Spettatore Italiano", urging Stella that, if so, it should be published quickly, because of the novelty of the subject matter, but that he should take particular care over the small amount of Greek text in the essay, since it comprises a number of detailed emendations which would be rendered quite unintelligible by any errors of type-setting. Leopardi promises to send him any further dissertations he writes on the many discoveries of Angelo Mai, and asks if copies might be sent to his father and to the critic known as Mezio. - Overall browning and spotting, one small hole slightly affecting the text, seal tear at corner.

Descripción: New City, 30. V. 1942., 1942. Folio (314:241 mm). 6 pp. The entire manuscript, lyrics, and music are beautifully penned in jet black ink on Chappell No. 2 and Rayner, Dalheim & Co. lined music paper. A complete musical manuscript by Kurt Weill of his "Song of the Free". The musical portion of the manuscript is six pages in length. On page one of the manuscript, Weill has written: "Song of the Free by Archibald MacLeish, Music by Kurt Weill". On the cover (music lined paper), Weill has written: "The manuscript of The Song of the Free (The United Nations Anthem) for Gertrude Lawrence as a token of my undying affection. Kurt Weill. New City May 30, 1942". German composer Kurt Weill immigrated to the United States in 1936, and his interest in American music and literature became a vital part of his music. Weill set the poetry of many American poets and writers to music, including Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, Archibald MacLeish and Maxwell Anderson. According to the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, "Song of the Free" was composed for the war effort between February and April, 1942. Titled by Weill "Song of the Free (The United Nations Anthem)", the song may have been used as part of a radio broadcast celebrating "United Nations Day", which was June 14, 1942. At that time, the "United Nations" referred to U.S. Allies in World War II (the United Nations, as we know it today, had not yet formed). An important musical manuscript, with an important association between Weill and the three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Modernist poet, Archibald MacLeish. Musical manuscript material in Weill's hand is extremely rare. - Light soiling. Nº de ref. de la librería 30953

Descripción: Vienna, 1897-1935., 1935. Royal folio. In later years mounted onto uniform backing boards by Geyling himself and laid into two simple portfolios, both of which contain his autogr. table of portraits. All leaves numbered throughout by the artist (1-24; Schnitzler's letters on their own backing are no. 23) and captioned with the name and dates of the person portrayed. The earliest portrait dates from 1897, the year in which the Vienna Secession and the artistic periodical "Ver Sacrum" were founded. According to his inscription, it was for the latter that Geyling drew the present portrait of the Secessionist sculptor Rudolf Bacher. A large proportion of the pictures collected in these two portfolios were created several years later, in 1905, during the heyday of the Wiener Werkstätte (for which Geyling designed postcards) and a year after Geyling and his partner Otto Prutscher closed their joint studio for furnishings and décor. "Although a member of the conservative 'Künstlerhaus', Geyling always was close to the Vienna Secession" (cf. AKL LII, 462). For Geyling, "Klimt, Hoffmann, Roller, Olbrich were not only my colleagues, but also my friends, and many a night did we debate about the 'new and pure art'" (cf. Remigius Geyling erzählt, aufgezeichnet von Gerald Szyszkowitz. In: Nebehay/Krug, pp. 5-8, here: p. 7). These nights apparently offered numerous opportunities for Geyling's portrait studies: apart from the portraits of the aforesaid, the present collection contains a picture of the frequent Tivoli patron Egon Schiele (from the year of his death) as well as a portrait of Adolf Loos, drawn in the famous Café Museum. It was probably here where also Karl Kraus (entitled "Fackl-Kraus" by the artist) sat for Geyling. The great painter enjoyed an especially close relationship to Gustav Klimt: for many years he belonged to the circle of those who shared breakfast with Klimt at the Tivoli (cf. Nebehay/Krug, p. 3). In that legendary restaurant at the Green Hill in Vienna's Meidling district, he drew the two portraits of Klimt in May 1905. Together with Peter Altenberg and Otto Wagner, Klimt is one of the few persons whom Geyling sketched in more than one portrait only (all on a single page). It was upon Klimt's recommendation that Geyling was hired as head of decorations at the "Neue Wiener Bühnen" in 1910; his first production was the premiere of Schnitzler's "Undiscovered Country". It was during the rehearsals for this production, on 14 October 1911, that Geyling produced the present portrait of Schnitzler. Schnitzler's two letters to Geyling concern their joint project of a "Medardus movie". Geyling had worked as decorator for the most important Austrian film productions. So successfully had he transferred the stylistic devices of the Wiener Werkstätte into historical tragedy that in 1924 Fritz Lang used Geyling's designs for his great silent "Nibelungen" series (cf. AKL LII, 462). - Provenance: From a Viennese private collection, into which the artist himself sold both portfolios. Nos. 6-8 and 18, 21 and 22 are each illustrated in full-page size in: Ch. M. Nebehay & H. Krug (eds.). Remigius Geyling. Künstler und Literaten. Gezeichnet in Wien um 1900. Wien 1974. (= Jahresgabe der Wiener Bibliophilengesellschaft).

Descripción: [Nemchinovk], between January 7 and 14, 1929., 1929. 8vo. 3 pp. on double leaf. Page 4 written by his daughter Una. To his third wife, Natalja, on fighting against the AKhRR (Assotsiatsia Khudozhnikov Revolutsionnoi Rossii - Association of Artists of Revolutionary Russia), appointments with [Kirill Ivanovich] Shutko (with whom he was talking about Dziga Vertov), Archangelski, M. P. Kristi, and Aleksei Gan, who wanted to publish two essays of him. "Hier hat wieder eine Kampagne derAChR [Assoziation der Künstler der Revolution] gegen die neuen Strömungen begonnen, aber das Unglück [für sie] ist, dass jetzt meine Linie die Oberhand gewinnt und auf diese Weise ist das ganze für sie vergebens. Ich war in der Tretjakowka [=Tretjakow-Galerie], habe Kristi gesehen und am Freitag werde ich wieder in der Tretjakowka über die neue Abteilung sprechen und vielleicht über meine Arbeiten. [.] I think I have already mentioned everything. I will get my renumeration on Monday and go to buy the tickets then; I expect to be in Leningrad on Wednesday [.]" (transl. from the Russian original). - In her postscript, Malevich's daughter Una (who was at the age of nine at that time) reports how happy she was that her father had come to celebrate Christmas with her. - K.

Descripción: Mostly at sea, on board the barque "Sarah" of London, April 1831-14 March 1833 (with additions to 1835)., 1835. 4to (195 x 165 mm). (191) ff., including paste-downs and about 55 blanks. The journal with an engraved view as frontispiece, 15 full-page, 1 nearly full-page and 1 smaller manuscript maps and coastal profiles, plus a small engraved view mounted on 1 page. The lecture notes with a matching pair of engravings of a scull on and facing the title-page, and 27 pencil and/or ink anatomical drawings (including 2 full-page), some also with red. - Including: [Anatomical manuscript]. Morse, Edward George. Lecture Book [notes on anatomical lectures by Joseph Constantine Carpue]. [London], November-December 1828. Contemp, sheepskin parchment. A manuscript ship's journal kept by Edward George Morse (Bromyard 1805?-Deal post 1850?), who no doubt served, among other functions, as the ship's surgeon. Morse reflects on Arabian navigation and Arabian explorers, including the deservedly famous Ibn Battuta. "The Arabians like the Chinese are said to have employed the compass to guide them through the trackless sands of the desert or to enable them at the hours of prayer to direct their faces with precision towards the city of Mecca and tomb of the prophet. In the sixteenth century moreover when the Portuguese first visited the Indian seas they found that the Arabians are the chief navigators of those seas [.]". - Morse made his earliest dated entries in April 1831 at the island Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and others at Madagascar and its surrounding islands from May to August 1831. Those around Madagascar indicate he was on the barque Manchester, but from at least 11 December 1831 to his arrival back in England on 14 March 1833 he was on the barque Sarah, a 600 ton ship sailing out of London. In it he spent a year in the Seychelles 11 December 1831-15 December 1832, including Make Island, Bird Island, Praslin Island and La Digue. - In very good condition. The binding is soiled and abraded, and the boards slightly warped, but it remains structurally sound. A fascinating and unusual ship's journal with numerous maps, kept in the unused leaves of the author's illustrated anatomical lecture notes of a few years earlier. Nº de ref. de la librería 32457

Descripción: [Büyükada und Mexiko City, 1930, 1938 und 1939]., 1939. Zusammen 4 SS. auf 4 Bll. Verschiedene Formate. Inhaltsreiche Korrespondenz mit seinem Pariser Anwalt Gérard Rosenthal. In den zwei ersten (eigenhändigen) Briefen - geschrieben aus dem türkischen Exil - berichtet Trotzki seinem Anwalt von seinen Bemühungen nach Frankreich zu übersiedeln. I: [Büyükada], 14. III. [1930]. "Mein lieber Gerard (alias sinistrer Gefährte). Ich sende Ihnen den zweiten Brief, und ich hoffe, es werden nicht mehr. Ich werde mich morgen beim französischen Konsulat erkundigen [.]" (Übers. a. d. Frz.). II: [Ebd.], 16. III. 1930. "Lieber Gerard (oder andernfalls sinistrer Advokat), ich habe an Marg[uerite Rosmer] über meinen Besuch am französischen Konsulat geschrieben. Wenn es Sie interessieren sollte, wird Ihnen Marg. Auskunft geben (da es für mich zu umständlich ist zweimal zu schreiben). Ich denke, Sie werden sich an Marg. wenden müssen, sie wird nützlicher sein als ich. (Es ist vor allem die Frage nach finanziellen Bürgen.) [.]" (Übers.). -- Der ms. Brief vom 8. Dezember 1938 wurde im mexikanischen Exil in Mexico City verfaßt, wo Trotzki dabei war, die Aktivitäten der Vierten Internationale als Opposition zu Stalin zu koordinieren. Bei dem namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten wird es sich wohl ebenfalls um Rosenthal handeln: "[.] Ich habe Ihnen am 13. November über [Bernard] Grasset (No. 16-82/06) geschrieben. Der alte Mann ist sehr beunruhigt [.] Er verdächtigt V[ictor] S[erge] einer kleinen Intrige (zwischen uns!). Grasset wird ihm wohl die besagten Kapitel zu lesen gegeben haben, so daß er die entsprechende Stelle gefunden haben dürfte, und V[ictor] S[erge] dürfte auf eine die ganze Angelegenheit bloßstellende Art geantwortet haben. (Er ist zur Zeit sehr vertraut mit [Boris] Souvarine, der die Buchveröffentlichung in nicht allzu günstigem Licht sehen dürfte.) Sie müssen die Angelegenheit unbedingt direkt mit Grasset (oder Vigneau) aufklären. Wir warten auf eine rasche Antwort. Das ganze bleibt unter uns [.]" (Übers.). Bernard Grasset war der Verleger von Trotzkis im Jahr zuvor erschienener Schrift "La révolution trahie" und der in diesem Jahr erschienenen Schrift "Les Crimes De Staline". -- Trotzkis Telegramm v. 10. April 1939 wurde gleichfalls in Mexico City verfaßt und aufgegeben. Trotzki äußert darin seine Sorge um seine erste Gattin Alexandra Sokolowskaja, die 1935 verhaftet und in ein sibirisches Lager verbracht worden war, wo sich ihre Spur im Jahr zuvor (1938) verlaufen hatte. Auch über seinen Enkel Sieva (den Sohn seiner 1933 durch Freitod aus dem Leben geschiedenen Tochter Sina) zeigt sich Trotzki besorgt. Dieser stand nach dem Tod seines Vaters Platon Iwanowitsch Wolkow (1936) in der Obhut von Jeanne Molinier, der ehemaligen Gattin des Führers der französischen Trotzkistenbewegung, die ihrerseits in enger Beziehung zu Sievas im Pariser Exil verstorbenem Vater gestanden hatte und nun, nach dessen Tod, Anspruch auf dessen zurückgebliebenen Enkel erhob. Trotzki, der aus dem mexikanischen Exil heraus sich bemühte, seinen Enkel zu sich zu holen, sollte erst im August 1939 vor Gericht damit durchkommen. Ziemlich genau ein Jahr vor seinem Tod konnte er dann schließlich den geliebten Enkel in die Arme schließen: "Standesamtliche Trauung Gefängnis Moskau März neunzehnhundert Alexandra Sokolovskaia ohne welche Aufenthalt kommun. Sibirien unmöglich stop Legaler türkischer Pass Sieva aufgrund sowjetischer Dokumente mit Verwandtschaftsangaben in Händen der Jeanne Molinier stop Ihre Weigerung Pass vorzulegen Falschaussage stop Anwendung Gesetz verlassene Kinder unfassbar schändlich stop Werde Beweise vorlegen für regelmässige Zahlungen an meinen Sohn Sieva und Jeanne Molinier / Trotzki".

Descripción: Leipzig, 14. III. 1803., 1803. ½ S. Qu.-8vo. Der lange verschollene Schlußteil von Kleists Brief an seine Halbschwester Ulrike vom 13./14. März 1803 (wahrscheinlich der einzige am 14. März verfasste Teil des Briefes): "Und nun küsse in meinem Namen jeden Finger meiner ewig verehrungswürdigen Tante! Und, wie sie, den Orgelpfeifen gleich, stehen, küsse sie alle von der Obersten bis zur Letzten, der kleinen Maus [d. i. seine vier Monate alte Nichte Ottilie von Pannwitz] aus dem Apfelkern geschnitzt! Ein einziges Wort von euch, und ehe ihrs euch verseht, wälze ich mich vor Freude in der Mittelstube. Adieu! Adieu! Adieu! O du meine Allertheuerste! / Heinrich. / Leipzig, den 14ten März 1803". Die Verso-Seite trägt den zeitgenössischen Provenienzvermerk: "Die vorstehende Handschrift, Heinrichs von Kleist ist durch seine Schwester Ulrike in meine Hand gekommen. / Ida Jochmus". Ulrike von Kleist, die mit zunehmendem Alter immer stärkere exzentrische Züge erkennen ließ, pflegte gegenüber den Editoren der Briefe ihres Bruders eine ausgesprochene Zurückhaltung und verbrannte sogar einen Teil seiner Korrespondenz mit ihr. "Das kleine Briefgeschenk an Ida Jochmus beweist [.], daß Ulrike selbst bei den besonders heilig gehaltenen Briefen zu kleineren Zugeständnissen bereit war" (Klaus Kanzog, Edition und Engagement [1979] I, 149). Wenig ist bekannt über die Empfängerin dieses Geschenks: Die Berlinerin Ida Jochmus war "[m]it der Familie Kleist wahrscheinlich durch nachbarliche Beziehungen verbunden" und könnte sich "als in den Gruß einbezogen angesehen haben. Doch fehlen hierfür sichere Anhaltspunkte" (ebda. II, 33). Kanzog schlägt eine Verwandtschaft mit dem Frankfurter Stadtgerichtsdirektor Friedrich Jochmus vor, dessen Sohn Ernst - ehemaliger Schüler des Grauen Klosters zu Berlin und Architekturstudent daselbst - sich 1801 vor Kleist in das Stammbuch der Sophie Clausius eintrug (vgl. ebda. II, 283). Ida Jochmus scheint in späteren Jahren dem konservativen Kreis der Hegel-Schüler nahegestanden zu haben: 1832 war sie Subskribentin der posthumen Hegel-Werkausgabe; in das Stammbuch der Elise Burgtorf trug sie sich 1840 mit einem Zitat Philipp Marheinekes ein (im selben Stammbuch auch Einträge von Hermann und Charlotte Jochmus, beide Berlin 1842, sowie August Jochmus, Frankfurt 1849). 1845 scheint sie als Organisatorin eines Frauenvereins zur Unterstützung der deutschkatholischen Bewegung auf. - Kanzog hebt den reliquienhaften Charakter eben dieses Blattes hervor, das lange Zeit nur durch eine Abschrift Ulrikes überliefert war: "[D]urch die barbarische Zerstückelung und die Einschränkung auf wenige Sätze wird das magische Moment der Reliquie wesentlich potenziert. Schon die Unterschrift 'Heinrich' mußte starke Emotionen auslösen. Der Abschiedscharakter, die wirkungsvolle Einleitung [.] und das dreimalige 'Adieu' am Schluß erlaubten Assoziationen von dem einmaligen Anlaß des Briefes zu dem Tod Kleists. Der affektische Stil, in sechs Interjektionszeichen sichtbar und in dem Ausruf 'O du meine Allertheuerste!' kulminierend, verstärkten die Unmittelbarkeit der Aussage. Das pittoreske Moment des Grußes und die maßlose Übertreibung in der Wortwahl konnten als Ausdruck typischer Charakterzüge Kleists empfunden werden" (ebda.). Das Fragment fand Ende des Jahrhunderts in den Autographenhandel: 1883 wurde es von S. Austerlitz (Wien) in seinem Katalog als Nr. 617 angeboten, dann 1900 von Richard Bertling in Dresden (Lagerkatalog 36, Nr. 252). Es wurde acht Jahre später bei Gilhofer & Ranschburg einem unbekannten Käufer zugeschlagen; sein Standort war seitdem unbekannt. Erworben aus einer deutschen Privatsammlung; die originale Gilhofer'sche Katalogbeschreibung beiliegend. Kleist, Briefe II (Brandenburger Ausg., hg. v. R. Reuß und P. Staengle), Nr. 70, S. 243, 248-251 ("verschollen"). Kleist, Werke (hg. von E. Schmidt mit G. Minde-Pouet und R. Steig) Bd. 5, Nr. 66, S. 295, Z. 17-25. Erstdruck: G.

Descripción: Venice ("data in nostro Ducali Palatio"), 11 June 1579 ("indictione septima")., 1579. 4to (230 x 160 mm). Latin and Italian manuscript on vellum. 80 numbered ff., 21 lines. Headings and highlighted words in red; ruled throughout. Contemp. auburn calf, covers and spine elaborately gilt; all edges gilt; giltstamped supralibros "Iacobo Priolo" and date "MDLXXVIIII" on the covers. Wants ties. Interesting manuscript on the constitutional and legal history of the Venetian state, with many decrees regulating commerce, drafted in the age of the merchant-traveller Gasparo Balbi and of Venice's great trade relationship with the Middle East. The clean and well-legible manuscript, written in the classical humanist chancery style, was obviously prepared for members of the senate (signed at the end by the secretary, Giulio Zamberti, with the scribe's monogram). The decrees are in chronological order, rater than arranged by subject. The earliest dated decree is from the year 1351, but most date from the mid-16th century. The edicts regulated public life of the Venetian state, including civil servants' salaries, matters of commerce and trade, offices, criminal law, banishment, etc. The first leaf bears the dedication by the doge Nicolò da Ponte (in office 1578-85) to Jacopo Priuli, a member of one of the foremost modern-age families of Venetian patricians (producing two doges in the 16th century). The familiy, ennobled as early as 1297 and one of the richest in Venice, is also known for its patronage of the arts, commissioning several Tintoretto portraits. As a member of the senate, Jacopo would have been entitled to a private copy of the statues. The high quality of the binding with its rich arabesque ornamentation and wide ornamental borders on the covers reflects on the importance of the patron family. - Engraved bookplate of Amadeo Svayer (Gottlieb Schweyer, 1727-91), a Venice-based German merchant and bibliophile who had assembled a huge and select library which after his death was almost entirely integrated into St Mark's library.

Descripción: London, Richard Chiswell, Benjamin Walford, Matthew Wotton, George Conyers, [printing probably shared by 2 printers, one possibly Samuel Roycroft], 1696., 1696. 4to (19.5 x 15.5 cm). [4], "139" [= 135], [5] pp. With a woodcut ship on the title-page (with a griffin on the sail) and about 60 woodcut illustrations in the text (mostly about 5.5 x 8 cm) plus about 10 repeats, each with a thick-thin border. Set in textura types with incidental roman and italic. Gold-tooled, red goatskin morocco by Robert Riviere in London (ca. 1875/80), with 5 (false?) bands on the spine, each board with a double frame of double and triple fillets and 2 different sets of 4 corner pieces, author and title in gold in 2nd and 3rd of 6 spine compartments, the others with gold-tooled decorations and the date and place of publication at the foot, gold-tooled turn-ins, gold fillets on board edges, straight-combed endpapers, gilt edges, stamped on the back of the free marbled endleaf in sans-serif capitals: "Bound by Riviere". A rare 17th-century English edition, with about 60 different woodcut illustrations, of a classic and partly fictional 14th-century account of travels presented as voyages of Sir John Mandeville through Turkey, Egypt, Ethiopia, Syria, Persia, Arabia, India and the East Indies. According to the story he set off on his travels in 1322 from Saint Albans in England, returned in 1343, wrote the present account in 1364 and died in 1371. It was originally written in French and is thought to have been compiled from various sources by Jehan d'Outremeuse (1338-1400) of Liege. A 1371 manuscript survives and it first appeared in print under the title Itinerarius in Dutch (ca. 1477), French (1480), German (1480) and other languages, and in English in Richard Pynson's edition of ca. 1497/98. It includes many well-known stories and illustrations of monstrous people and animals in exotic lands: a man with only one enormous foot that he can use as a parasol, a dog-headed man, a man with his face in his chest, a girl who turns into a dragon, griffins, nine-meter giants, ants that gather gold, diamonds that mate and give birth to baby diamonds and much more that spoke to the imagination (though the ox-headed man is presented as an idol that was worshipped, rather than a fantastic beast). The book also includes genuine descriptions of the regions covered and gave many Europeans their first notions of the Near East, Middle East, India and East Indies. It shows carrier pigeons, an elephant and other recognisable or plausible scenes. It also incorporates and illustrates some biblical stories. The part on Arabia includes an account of the birth of Mohammed. Most of the present woodcuts are loosely and indirectly based on those in the 1481 Augsburg edition, partly in mirror image. The book went through dozens of editions in English and other languages. It reached more or less the present form with the 1650 London edition, which may have used the same woodblocks (we have not had an opportunity to compare them). The imprint of the present edition names four London publishers, and one of them (Conyers) also advertises his edition of William Lithgow's Nineteen years travels (1692) at the foot of the last page. The book was registered for these four publishers in the term catalogue for Trinity 1696, issued in June. The printing was probably shared between two different anonymous printers: exactly half way through the book, between quires I and K, the running heads, the textura type used for the main text and the roman drop capitals opening the chapters change. The 1684 edition by four London publishers (none named in the present edition) not only uses the same woodblocks but is also typographically almost identical to the first half of the present edition and no doubt came from the same printer. The drop capitals differ, but those in the present edition have not been recorded before 1688. Samuel Roycroft and James Orme both used them, and Roycroft used at least several of the other types in the first half. The book is printed on coarse laid paper with no watermark. Halliwell, in his 1869 edition of Mandeville, noted the pr. Nº de ref. de la librería 44432

Descripción: [Genoa, c. 1815-20]., 1815. 8vo (233 x 170 mm). Contemp. half calf, spine gilt with with title lettered in gold. With 117 (out of 118) full-page coloured drawings within borders consisting of two lines (206 x 138 mm) illustrating the Christian Doctrine, on strong paper. One leaf with written introduction (one leaf missing), 117 ff. (numbered 1-95, 97-118) with drawings, 3 blank ff. Interesting manuscript by Padre Ottavio Giovanni Battista Assarotti (1753-1829), containing a method to teach and explain the 'Dottrina Christiana' to Genoese deaf-mutes. Assarotti was an Italian philanthropist and founder of the first school for deaf-mute people in Italy. After qualifying for the church, he entered the society of the Pietists, Scuole Pie, who devoted themselves to the training of young men. In 1801 he heard of the Abbé Sicard's education of deaf people in Paris, and resolved to do something similar in Italy. He began with one pupil, and by degrees collected a small number around him. In 1805, Napoleon, hearing of his endeavours, ordered a convent to give him a school-house and funds for supporting twelve scholars, to be taken from the convent revenues. This order was poorly heeded until 1811, when it was renewed, and the following year Assarotti, with a considerable number of pupils, took possession of the new school. He continued here until his death in 1829. The traditional and distinctive Italian manual alphabet is said to have been invented by Assarotti. - It is not certain that Assarotti himself is the author of the manuscript: while it may equally well have been conceived by one of his collaborators, it is based on the method invented and developed by Assarotti, who also designed the plates. The introduction explains how difficult it is to teach abstract concepts, such as religion, to deaf-mute pupils, so he painted these plates, invented by Assarotti: "He (Assarotti) never wrote down his educational philosophy and methods, and so fell into obscurity after his death" (Deaf History Unveiled, 244f.). As far as we know this manuscript is the only surviving witness of his theories. - The style of the watercolours is somewhat primitive and popular, but very rich in detail, including elaborate plates illustrating Faith in general ('Fede'; nos. 1-42); Commandments ('Legge'; nos. 43-51); Prayers ('Preghiera' 1-10; nos. 52-61); 42 Sacraments ('Sacramenti'; nos. 62-95, 97-104); Virtues ('Virtu' 1-14; nos. 105-118). The illustrations include views of paradise, hell, creation, functions of priests, symbols of all kinds of aspects of the Catholic faith, etc. - In very good condition.

Descripción: Palestine, Hejaz, and Egypt, late 1917., 1917. 24 photographs (vintage prints), averaging 5.5 x 10 cm, including a snapshot captioned "Major Lawrence, C.B. / Akaba. Dec. '17". Mounted in a small photograph album, contemporary grey cloth. Oblong 8vo. Photograph album belonging to an airman with No. 1 Squadron of the Australian Flying Corps, serving in the Palestine Campaign during the latter part of the First World War. Includes a photograph of T. E. Lawrence at the height of the Arab Revolt, showing him standing full-length, dressed in Arab robes and wearing his famous gold Meccan dagger (acquired that very July). This photograph, hitherto unknown and presumably taken by the anonymous owner of the album, shows Lawrence at a turning point of his life, having established his reputation and that of the Arab Revolt with the capture of Aqaba the previous June; while at the same time having escaped from Turkish torture and custody at Deraa only a few weeks earlier in late November (an episode naturally subject to much dispute). He had been appointed Commander of the Bath for his secret reconnaissance expedition into northern Syria that summer. In early December he accompanied Allenby's troops on their triumphal entry into Jerusalem, but was in Aqaba in both early and late December (on the 3rd, 25th and 28th); his movements are summarised in a letter to his family from Cairo on 14 December 1917: "Well here I am in Cairo again, for two nights, coming from Akaba via Jerusalem. I was in fortune, getting to Jerusalem just in time for the official entry of General Allenby [.] I wrote to you last from Azrak, about the time we blew up Jemal Pasha, and let him slip away from us. After that I stayed for ten days or so there, and then rode down to Akaba in 3 days: good going, tell Arnie: none of his old horses would do so much as my old camel. At Akaba I had a few days motoring, prospecting the hills and valleys for a way Eastward for our cars: and then came up to H.Q. to see the authorities and learn the news-to-be. Tomorrow I go off again to Akaba, for a run towards Jauf, if you know where that is." - The majority of the photographs were taken while the unidentified photographer was stationed with his squadron at Gaza and Aqaba in November and December 1917. They include snapshots of "My D.H.2 67 / Sq. 'Drome 25/11/17. Just previous to 1st scrap"; "Dead Sea/ '67 Squadron Martinsyde with Guy & Self in B.F. on Bomb Raid. 21/11/17"; "Vickers Bullet" (i.e. Vickers F.B.19) at Bela ("My old 'bus"), a SE.5a and Bristol Monoplane (M.1C) of No. 111 Squadron at Belah, Bristol Scouts at Aboukir, etc. - It is evident that the owner of this album served with No. 67 Squadron of the Royal Flying Corps: this was, properly speaking, No. 1 Squadron AFC (Australian Flying Corps) but between March 1916 and February 1918 was renamed by the British authorities as No. 67 Squadron RFC, to avoid confusion with No. 1 Squadron RFC. It is the ancestor of No. 1 Squadron of the Royal Australian Air Force and was under the command of Major Richard Williams, "father" of the RAAF. Other photographs show aircraft from No. 111 Squadron RFC, with which (on the evidence that he flew a Vickers F.B.19) the album's owner may have also served. This squadron had been formed in Palestine in August 1917 and early in 1918 was to hand over some of its planes to the No. 1 Squadron. - In excellent condition. Nº de ref. de la librería 32066

Descripción: London, William Wilson, 1651., 1651. 4to. (14), 591, (23) pp, final blank. With additional engr. title page (frontispiece), 4 full-page text woodcuts (2 folding) and several smaller woodcuts in the text, as well as 1 folding woodcut plate, latterly backed with cloth. Sumptuous mid-19th-century three quarter morocco binding with gilt spine. Extremely rare and early edition of this great English hippiatric manual, first published in 1615, by one of the earliest western owners of and dealers in Arabian horses. A distinctly modern touch is provided by the small woodcut pointing hands scattered about the margins, denoting new cures and "medicines that are most certaine and approved; and heretofore never published". Gervase (Gervais, Jarvis) Markham, as well as his father Robert, a Nottinghamshire MP and Sheriff, was the owner of valuable horses, and "is said to have imported the first Arab. In a list of Sir Henry Sidney's horses in 1589 'Pied Markham' is entered as having been sold to the French ambassador [and it, or a horse of the same name, may have been given to Markham by Sir Francis Walsingham], and Gervase sold an Arabian horse to James I for £500" (DNB). - Variously browned; occasional corner faults (no loss to text). From the library of Sir Robert Throckmorton, Bt. (1800-62), member of an eminent Anglo-Catholic noble family who sat in the House of Commons from 1831 to 1835 (his bookplate on front pastedown; a later bookplate is opposite on the flyleaf).

Freundschaftliche Korrespondenz mit Arthur Kahane und Margarethe über private Angelegenheiten und seine aktuelle Arbeit: "Liebe, Gute, Seien Sie mir nicht mehr böse: ich fühle es allzudeutlich, dass Sie es mir sein müssen, nicht so äußerlich, aber ein ganz klein wenig innerlich: denn auch einen solchen Brief gehört doch wenigstens irgend ein Antwortton, und wenn es nur ein halt unverständliches Gegrunz oder Gemurmel ist als da: liebe Frau Margarethe u. s. w. Aber sehen Sie, seit Ende April habe ich keinen Tag gehabt, an dem es mir möglich erschienen wäre, eine vernünftige Zeile zu schreiben, und auch heute bin ich noch ohne rechte Sammlung und jenes gute Gewissen gegen sich selbst [.] Was den Goldoni betrifft, so hat mich, wie Sie wohl schon wissen, Freksa überredet, die Sache mit ihm zusammen zu machen. Ich bin vielleicht von einigem Nutzen dabei, - vor allem wird auf diese Weise wenigstens gewährleistet, dass das Stück bis Juli etwa fertig ist, auch wird ihm so wohl ein bischen mehr Ellbogenfreiheit für die Komödie und Salambo (deren Übersetzung während dieser paar Monate mir fast als unmöglich vorkommt) [.]" (Mai 1907). - "Soeben erhielt ich Deinen Brandbrief, über dessen Entzifferung ich auf S. 5 den Verstand verlor, was ich im Folgenden eventuell in Betracht zu ziehen bitte. Desgleichen bitte ich Dich den angekündigten dramaturgischen Brief für Reinhardt ja mit der Maschine - dem Biest zu schreiben, ebenso wie jede Bemerkung Deiner Einrichtung (man kann dieselben auf Zetteln einkleben).

Descripción: Constantinople, Smyrna and other places, c. 1850., 1850. Folio (370 x 265 mm). Comprising 15 hand-coloured lithographs, 3 prints, 14 costume watercolours, and 16 documents, one calligraphic poem, and a photograph. With a few other unconnected pieces. Original giltstamped cloth titled "Scrapbook". A remarkable scrapbook evidently compiled in Turkey over a period of time, mainly the 1860s and 1870s. This album includes a number of prints from the well-known period lithographic series produced by the celebrated Smyrna printer Tatikian. The figures are notable for the naturalistic qualities which set them apart from the so many other stylised costume plates: "the drawings seem to be of real people, and are not idealized. Most of the plates depict the costume of the ordinary people of the Ottoman Empire, including a number from the region of Smyrna. [.] Tatikian produced these lithographs as separate items, much as postcards are produced today, and the customer purchased only those which interested him. Thus the contents of different collections vary" (Atabey). The figures here present include Sheikhs, public scribes, Albanian priests, an Armenian water carrier, Greek ladies, etc., mostly living in Smyrna. The photograph, showing a "Kiosk erected in the Sultan's Valley at Baicas for the Empress Eugenie to review the troops", is dated Oct. 1869. Other material in this fascinating and wide-ranging trove includes diplomatic passports, quarantine passes in Ottoman Turkish, lithographs of Sultan Abdul Medjid Khan and Sultan Abdul Aziz, an outstanding leaf of Arabic calligraphy, consisting of an epitaph on Mehmed Chelebi by the poet Sururi (with English interlinear translation), a watercolour of "Mohammet's ascent to Heaven on 'Borak'" (with the Prophet's face veiled), and assorted collected invitations and deeds, many in Hebrew (indeed, the collector of this scrapbook would seem to have moved much within the Jewish community of Smyrna), as well as a few specimens of East Asian art. - Some spotting, extremities rubbed. An uncommon collection. Cf. Atabey 1196f. Blackmer 1928. Nº de ref. de la librería 39753

Descripción: Antwerp, Willem Silvius, 1576., 1576. 8vo. (14) pp., 1 blank f., 328 (but: 408), (30) pp., final blank f. With woodcut title border and 60 full-page costume woodcuts in the text. 17th-century vellum with ms. title to spine. Rare first Italian edition, published in the same year and by the same printer as the second French one. "Fort estimée et recherchée pour les excellentes figures" (Olschki). Silvius re-issued the book in 1577 with a new title page; he simultaneously produced a German and a Dutch version, all with the same illustrations, considered "the first serious introduction to Turkish costume" (Atabey). The costumes include Janissaries, merchants, pilgrims, peasants, clerics, a physician, a cook, etc. "C'est la première série de documents sérieux sur les habillements du proche Orient" (Colas). The woodcuts, based on the etchings in the original edition, which appeared in Lyon in 1567/68, are usually attributed to Assuerus van Londerseel (Ahasver von Landfeldt), but Mortimer, Funck and Hollstein cite Antonij van Leest. "Nicolay was the royal geographer sent by Henri II to Constantinople to join d'Aramon's embassy in 1551. [.] The engraved plates are attributed to Louis Danet, or Louis Thiry" (Atabey). - Some browning due to paper; several marginalia, some slight edge flaws.
