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: London, L. Harrison for S. and J. Fuller, 1829., 1829. Large folio (60 x 42 cm). Letterpress title with engraved vignette, list of subscribers, winners of the St. Leger 1776-1814, 14 hand-coloured aquatint plates by T. Sutherland and R. G. Reeve after Herring, each with letterpress description of riders and winners of other races and the St Leger stakes for each year. Bound in recent half burgundy morocco with contemporary drab boards with large printed label on upper cover. "Extremely rare" (Tooley). Second edition of Herring's finest work, the outcome of his fascination with horse racing and the St. Leger in particular. "In the writer's estimation, the first series of the St. Leger winners contains the very best of Herring prints [.] they were engraved by Sutherland, a more competent aquatinter and colourist than his successors who handled these race-horses" (Siltzer). Herring spent the first 18 years of his life in London, where his father, an American, was a fringe-maker in Newgate Street. Having married against his father's wishes, he went to Doncaster, where he arrived during the races in September 1814, and saw the Duke of Hamilton's horse, William, win the St. Leger. The sight inspired him to attempt the art of animal-painting, in which he subsequently excelled. He painted Filho da Puta, the winner of the St. Leger in 1815, and for the following thirty-two years painted each winner in succession. "Herring's series of Portraits [.] were painted annually and quickly reproduced in large showy aquatints, the horses made literally glossy by the application of varnish to the paper" (Diana Donald, Picturing Animals in Britain 1750-1850, New Haven, CT [2007], p. 215). This is the second edition of this series of wonderful racehorse portraits. It was first published as a suite of 10 plates in 1824 by Sheardown and Son of Doncaster; S. and J. Fuller of London purchased these in 1827 and continued to publish, periodically, the St. Leger winner series up to 1845. The earlier plates were all re-captioned with Fuller's imprint. Plates watermarked 1825-28; the first plate in the present work, "Filho da Puta", is on paper watermarked 1827. - Very slight offsetting to text. Extremities rubbed; otherwise a superb example of this rare work. Siltzer 139-146. Mellon Horsemanship, 128. Nº de ref. de la librería 32114

Descripción: Middle East, 1769-1770., 1770. Folio (235 x 170 mm). Italian manuscript in two parts with 29 original pen and ink drawings (15 and 14), written in black ink in a neat, legible hand, 28 lines to a page. (1), 95, (1) pp. (including illustrations numbered in pencil, upper right, but recto only). Collation, including illustrations: [1 f., 1 p.], [21 ff., 35 pp.], [6 pp.], [17 ff., 26 pp.], [5 pp.] (several sheets cut so that a tab only remains of the second page, and all illustrations tipped in). Contemp. half vellum over marbled paper boards. Generally written on both recto and verso, except for the two title-pages and the illustrations (recto only); all but first and last page enclosed with a single line border, in pencil for text pages and in ink for illustrations. Unpublished manuscript giving a vivid and eventful first-person account of a journey from Urbino to Constantinople, legible and beautifully presented with 29 equally unique pen-and-ink illustrations. - A unique account of a journey from Urbino to Constantinople and back, in 1769-70, hand-written and accompanied by 29 original drawings, which offer views of islands rarely if ever depicted in contemporary travel accounts or series. No counterpart has been found for the illustrations, which appear therefore to have been made from eye-witness records. That the artist may have been the author himself is suggested by the fact that he makes no mention of a separate artist, and by the manner in which he introduces the first illustration: 'Il Paise è piccolo come vedrassi della figura, che di curiosita, ed intelligenza di lettori porro a piedi di questo capitolo' (p. 5v). The story of his adventure is equally idiosyncratic, incorporating both a record of foreign places, people and customs common to other such literature, and also an account of a personal tragedy and a dangerous sea-voyage. The manuscript falls within a tradition of cultural exchange and travel writing between Europeans and the Orient; but unlike Luigi Mayer, for example, employed to make drawings of the historical buildings of Constantinople by the English ambassador Sir Robert Ainslie shortly afterwards, or J. B. Hilair, whose paintings made on a trip throughout the Empire with the French ambassador Count Choiseul-Gouffier in 1776, and engraved and published in Gouffier's "Voyage pittoresque de la Grèce" (1778-82), Gianni appears to be an entirely independent figure. Though the manuscript is set out like a printed book and was presumably destined for wider distribution in that form as a money-making enterprise, Gianni does not seem to have been commissioned, nor to have hoped for patronage. His stated aim is simply to give a true account to his readers, in case they might wish to undertake a similar journey. His route takes him through great cities such as Venice, Athens, Smyrna and Gallipoli, ancient sites such as Troy and Heraklia, through the Peloponnesus and islands such as Mykonos, Corfu, Maitos and Skios, all of which he describes and depicts in detail. Meanwhile, although he says that he is not writing in order to leave "una viva ricordanza di me, come di soggetto qualificato", that is precisely what he does: the second part of the book recounts his search for his son from whom he had heard nothing but that he had married a Greek girl. Reunited with him through a doctor who has been helping the boy through an illness, he tries to persuade the young couple to return with him to Urbino, but this plan is thwarted by the machinations of the doctor. His journey home, alone, is enlivened by an encounter with corsairs, a near shipwreck, a boy falling overboard and a violent storm. The value of this book lies not only in the unique, unpublished text and illustrations, and legible and attractive presentation, but also in the combination of commonly-found themes such as dress and customs, with an entirely personal and richly-told narrative of one man's search for his son. - One illustration (Smirne) has been trimmed along the right edge afte.

Descripción: Amsterdam, c. 1750., 1750. Uncoloured. 530 x 305 mm. 20 large engraved sea charts, pasted back to back, nineteenth-century half calf. A rare maritime atlas for V.O.C. ships bound for the Far East, published by Johannes van Keulen II, the Dutch East India Company's official map maker and hydrographer during the years 1726-55. This atlas is a fine and rare example to be used on board, including 20 large engraved sea charts, pasted back to back, as typical for on-board use, making them more durable. This atlas also includes the most important celestial chart of the period, the "Stellatum Planisphaerium" of Louis Vlasbloem. The small spheres show the geocentric and heliocentric configurations of the solar system. The expansion of Dutch maritime trade in the Far East provided new astronomical knowledge of the southern hemisphere: twelve new constellations were added to the Ptolemaic canon, making a total of 60. The newly discovered southern constellations include: Pavo, Phoenix, Indus, and others, and Coma Berenices in the north. Celestial navigation was practiced by Chinese and western sailors, and a celestial chart was of the highest importance for navigation. The volume also includes an important and scarce world map, here in its second state with additional privilege. It is on Mercator's projection with only a relatively small number of coastal place names and no interior features or localities at all. After 1682 other general maps were used by Van Keulen, possibly because of the unfamiliarity of Mercator's projection. Shows California as an island and no further coastlines to the north. Includes: 1. Stellatum Planisphaerium 2. Wassende Graade Kaart van Alle Bekende Zeekusten op den Geheelen Aardbodem 3. Pascaerte van't Noordlyckste Deel van Europa 4. Wassende Graade Kaart van de Noort Zee Beginnende van de Hoofden tot t'Land Stadt in Noorwegen met de Gantse Oostkust van Engeland 5.

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

I was promised to sell a drawing soon [.] I called upon the Main Administration for Literary and Arts Affairs, but, as usual, they promised to make arrangements for a separate meeting and to talk to Shutko. Chwojnik sent me a note regarding my business trip abroad. It is all about not being willing to give one single Dollar in foreign currency [.] Chwojnik, who is head of the artistic department, is publishing characterstics of Russian artists and asks me to act as a model. In general, they all behave well to me. My beloved Natalja, don't let yourself get bored, don't get upset, don't lose weight. During this journey I have to do everything to lay in provisions for the winter [.]" (transl.). Nº de ref. de la librería 32597

Descripción: Wien, 1897-1935., 1935. In späteren Jahren vom Künstler selbst auf Untersatzkartons einheitlichen Formats montiert und in zwei einfache Mappen eingelegt, die er jeweils mit den Namen der Dargestellten eigenhändig beschriftete. Die Blätter selbst von der Hand des Künstlers durchlaufend numeriert (1-24, die auf ein Kartonblatt montierten Schreiben Schnitzlers als Nr. 23) und mit der Bezeichnung der Portraitierten unter Hinzufügung ihrer Lebens- bzw. Sterbedaten versehen. Imp.-Folio. Das früheste Blatt datiert aus dem Jahr 1897, dem Gründungsjahr der Wiener Secession und der Kunstzeitschrift "Ver Sacrum". Für letztere hatte Geyling laut seiner eigenh. Beschriftung das vorliegende Portrait des secessionistischen Bildhauers Rudolf Bacher geschaffen. Ein Großteil der von ihm in den beiden Mappen versammelten Bilder entstand dann 1905, im Jahr nach der Schließung des von ihm gemeinsam mit Otto Prutscher betriebenen Ateliers für Einrichtungs- und Ausstattungsbedarf und zur Blütezeit der Wiener Werkstätte, für die Geyling u. a. Postkarten entwarf. "Obwohl Mitglied des konservativen Künstlerhauses, stand er trotzdem der Wiener Secession nahe" (AKL LII, 462). Für Geyling waren "Klimt, Hoffmann, Roller, Olbrich nicht nur meine Kollegen, sondern auch meine Freunde und wir haben viele, viele Nächte über die 'neue und reine Kunst' debattiert" (Remigius Geyling erzählt, aufgezeichnet von Gerald Szyszkowitz. In: Nebehay/Krug, SS. 5-8, hier 7). Diese Nächte boten offenbar zahlreiche Gelegenheiten für Geylings Portraitstudien: die vorliegende Sammlung enthält neben den Portraits der obengenannten auch ein Bild des oftmaligen Tivoli-Gastes Egon Schiele aus dessen Todesjahr sowie eine im Cafe Museum entstandene Portraitzeichnung von Adolf Loos. Am selben Ort wird Geyling wohl auch der von ihm so bezeichnete "Fackl-Kraus" Portrait gesessen haben. Ein besonders enges Verhältnis pflegte Geyling zu Gustav Klimt: er "gehörte viele Jahre lang zum Kreis derjenigen, die mit Klimt am Tivoli frühstückten" (Nebehay/Krug, S. 3). In dem legendären Restaurationsbetrieb am Grünen Berg in Meidling entstand im Mai 1905 dann auch das Blatt mit den beiden Portraits Klimts. Gemeinsam mit Peter Altenberg und Otto Wagner gehört Klimt zu den wenigen, die in den vorliegenden Mappen mit mehr als einer Portraitstudie (jeweils auf einem Blatt) vertreten sind. Es war die Empfehlung seines Freundes Klimt, die Geyling 1910 zur Anstellung als Ausstattungschef der "Neuen Wiener Bühnen" verhalf; die erste von ihm ausgestattete Inszenierung am Burgtheater war die Premiere von Schnitzlers "Das weite Land". Bei den Proben zu ebendieser Inszenierung, am 14. X. 1911, entstand auch die in vorliegender Sammlung überlieferte Portraitzeichnung des Dichters. Die zwei beiliegenden Schreiben Schnitzlers an Geyling betreffen u. a. das gemeinsame Projekt des "Medardusfilm", hatte sich Geyling doch um die Austattung der bedeutendsten österreichischen Filmproduktionen verdient gemacht. Seine Übertragung der "Stilmittel der Wiener Werkstätte in das historische Trauerspiel [war] so wirkungsvoll, daß 1924 Fritz Lang Geylings Entwürfe für den Stummfilm 'Nibelungen' verwendete" (AKL LII, 462). - Provenienz: Wiener Privatsammlung, in die der Künstler die beiden Mappen noch zu Lebzeiten verkaufte. Die Nrn. 6-8 sowie 18, 21 und 22 der unten verlisteten Zeichnungen jeweils ganzseitig abgebildet in: Ch. M. Nebehay u. H. Krug (Hrsg.). Remigius Geyling. Künstler und Literaten. Gezeichnet in Wien um 1900. Wien 1974. (= Jahresgabe der Wiener Bibliophilengesellschaft). Die vorliegende Sammlung dort nicht beschrieben; alle übrigen Zeichnungen unveröffentlicht.

Descripción: Recanati, 14. XI. 1817., 1817. 4to (c. 240 x 190 mm). 1 p. Address panel on verso, traces of seal, annotated by the recipient. 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: [Wittenberg], Easter [14 April 1555]., 1555. Folio (194 x 320 mm). In Latin. 2 pp. Matted and framed. To the Protestant theologian Sebastian Boetius in Halle, writing to recommend the young priest Christian Hertwig junior. Boetius (1515-73), who had studied under Luther and Melanchthon at Wittenberg, succeeded Justus Jonas as superintendent of Halle and founded the famous Library of St Mary, still in existence. - In his letter, Melanchthon reminds his former student that their minds often run in the same channel, as their letters show, and describes the role of the ideal pastor. He recommends Hertwig for such a position, both on the strength of his doctrines as on that of his moral fibre: "S[alutem] d[ico] reverendo vir & cariss[imo] frater. Memini antea in quada[m] ad te epistola hac uti similitudine, de qua sepe cogito. Ut in navi remiges, amisso gubernatore, cuius cernere signa & cora[m] audire ma[n]data potera[n]t, necesse est sua sponte maiore cura concordia[m] tutti et co[n]silia co[n]ferre. Sic nos oportet co[n]iu[n]ctiores esse, cu[m] principes cura ecclesiar[um] paru[m] adficiantur, ac insu[m]eamur summu[m] gubernatore[m] filii dei qui non deerit nobis invocantib[us] ipsu[m]. Spes facta est huic Christiano Hertwik nato ex pastore ecclesia vicina oppido Hertzberg, prafectu[m] vestru[m] ei commendatu[rum] esse ecclesia[m] qua[n]da[m]. Quare te oro ut p[er]fecto eu[m] co[m]me[n]des, sed ita ut tu quoq[ue] consideres doctrina[m] & mores huius iuvenis. Vides quale sit seculu[m] in hac circumstantia [?]. Ideo qua[n]tu[m] potes vicinis ecclesiis consulito. De sale tibi gratia[m] habeo, et si nollem te sumptus fecisse mea causa. Sed benevolentia tua delector. Mitto pagellas, quia alia nu[n]c no[n] erant ad manu[m] [.]". - Christian Hertwig (b. in Buckau c. 1530, d. before Oct. 1574) was probably the elder of two sons of the like-named former Augustinian monk C. Hertwig (c. 1495-1562), who left his order in 1526 and was recommended to the Elector by Justus Jonas and Luther in 1531. Christian the younger studied at Wittenberg for a year before teaching the gospel in Brandenburg. Twice Melanchthon interceded on his behalf: on 25 March 1555, shortly before the present letter to Boetius, he provided Hertwig with a personal letter of recommendation, quoting Georg Buchholzer's praise for the young man and appealing to anyone in a position to help to provide him with an office (CR VIII, 449f.). - Slightly browned; traces of folds. Altogether in fine condition. Unpublished. Melanchthons Briefwechsel (ed. H. Scheible), vol. VII, p. 295, no. 7449. Koehler, Epistolae quaedam Phil. Melanthonis (1802), 37 note x.

Descripción: Augsburg, Christoph Mang, 1615., 1615. Small 4to. (14), 646 [but: 648], (10) pp. With engraved title page by Wolfgang Kilian and an engraved folding plan. 19th-century tanned half sheepskin, gold-tooled spine, marbled sides. First edition of "the most influential description of China to appear during the first half of the 17th century" (Hanotiau). Ricci (1552-1610), an Italian Jesuit missionary, arrived in China in 1582. Adopting Chinese dress and learning the language, he succeeded where other missionaries had failed. He served in Nanchang, Nanking, and received permission to establish a missionary post in Beijing in 1610. During these years, he kept a journal which presented the history of Jesuit mission in China from its beginning in 1582 to 1610, the year of his death. This manuscript was translated from the Italian into Latin by Ricci's successor Trigault (1577-1628), who tried to elicit support for the mission in China. Trigault, however, changed many passages of Ricci's journal and augmented it with information based on several Portuguese reports. "The resulting volume contains not only a history of the Jesuit mission but also includes a wealth of information about China in the chapters describing Chinese geography, people, laws, government, religion, learning, commerce and the like" (Hanotiau). - The title-page, engraved by Wolfgang Kilian, gives the title on a cloth hanging in a portico, flanked by the figures of St Francis Xavier and Matteo Ricci, and with a small map of China, Korea, Japan and Formosa, with the Great Wall depicted, at the foot. - With library and de-accession stamps. Engraved title-page trimmed down and mounted on browned leaf; some thumbing on the few first and last pages and some minor foxing thoughout, not affecting the text, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed along the extremities of the spine and front hinge partly cracked, otherwise good. The Perrette copy sold at Christie's New York in April 2016 commanded US$68,750 (lot 183). Cordier (Sinica) 809. De Backer/Sommervogel VIII, 239. Lust 836. Morrison II, 466. Streit V, 2094. Howgego I, R40 & T66. Cf. Hanotiau 14 (2nd French edition). Nº de ref. de la librería 45601

Descripción: Kristiania (Oslo), Paris and undated, 1894-1926., 1926. Various formats. Altogether 14 pp. Some minor wearing to the letters after being folded. Together with the calling card of Mengelberg, inscribed on reverse by him "Edvard Munch Kragerö in Norwegen". 7 items.

Munch adds that he regrets having been unable to paint Mengelberg's feverish dreams while in Stockholm. - Letter 2 (10 June 1897): Munch writes he wanted to send birthday greetings, but when he left Hamburg he was without money, unable even to afford a postcard. He has sent a lithograph, mentions that Hamsun and Ibsen just passed by his window, and adds he wishes to travel to Paris in the spring. - Letter 3 (10 Jan. 1897): mentions the artist Paul Durand-Ruel, stating that all he exhibits is not symbolic. He also plans to publish an album of lithographs, provided he managed to find more subscribers. - Letter 4 (17 March 1897): some chat on the spring; mentions an exhibition in Dresden. - Postcards: complaints that Mengelberg is a poor correspondent. - Richard Mengelberg (1853-1932) wrote, in 1894, an article on Munch's works for the Frankfurter Zeitung. He was father of Nora Mengelberg, whose portrait Munch painted in 1894. He also made an etching of Richard Mengelberg the same year, his first work as an graphic artist.

Descripción: Venice, Bernardinus Benalius, 1497 (but not before 13 Feb. 1498)., 1498. Folio. 268 ff. Contemporary vellum with ms. title to spine. "This appears to be the first edition of Barbarus' recension, the note of a 1496 edition by the same printer being probably due to a confusion (Hain 13099)" (BMC). Early edition of Pliny's famous encylopedic work, covering the entire field of ancient knowledge. With his "Natural History", Pliny gives a mathematical and physical description of the world, discusses geography, ethnography, anthropology, human physiology, zoology, botany, mineralogy, sculpture and painting. As "a purveyor of information both scientific and nonscientific, Pliny holds a place of exceptional importance in the tradition and diffusion of culture" (DSB). Dated 1497 in the colophon, but the dedication is dated the Ides of February in the twelfth year of the Doge Augustinus Barbadicus (30 Aug. 1497 - 29 Aug. 1498). - Numerous contemporary marginalia. Slight worming to gutter and some waterstaining near end; spine severely defective. Late 19th-c. bookplate of Dr. J. Klauber on front pastedown. HC 13101*. Goff P-799. GW M34321. Klebs 786.14.

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: 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: No place, c. 1941-1947., 1947. 10 ff. of ms., with an additional f. of notes. 11 ff. altogether, written in ink on one side only, narrow folio format (c. 35 x 17 cm). Complete manuscript of the famous "Hoplopoiia" section of Kazantzakis's Iliad translation: a pivotal part of the 18th book (rhapsody sigma) of Homer's epic. Kazantzakis and the scholar J. T. Kakridis collaborated on this metrical translation from classical Greek into the modern demotic language over a 14-year period. When it was privately printed in 1955, the controversial effort was hailed as "'living' poetry, through which the modern Greeks will be able to grasp much of the vigour, the passion, and the values of the heroic world of the Iliad" (C. A. Trypanis, The Classical Review 8 [1958], p. 280). The "Hoplopoiia", or the "Making of Armor for Achilles", is one of the most famous parts of Homer's poem: After the death of Patroclus has convinced Achilles to re-enter battle and avenge his friend, his mother Thetis seeks out the smithing god Hephaistus, who fashions a new set of armour for him, among which is a magnificently wrought shield. The detailed description (ekphrasis) of this shield, which takes up most of the present ms., is regarded as one of the paramount passages in Western literature: starting from the center and moving outward, the shield shows first the heavenly bodies (Earth, sky and sea, the sun, the moon and the constellations), then a city at peace (a wedding; a lawsuit; council) and at war (opposing armies; the gods; an ambush); country life (ploughing and reaping; vintage; a herd of cattle attacked by lions; a sheep farm); dancing youths and maidens; and finally, the all-enclosing ocean stream. In essence, the shield offers a physical encapsulation of the entire world: the various layers of this microcosm present a series of contrasts, antitheses that show the basic forms of a civilized, essentially orderly life. Leading up to Achilles's return to battle and one of the bloodiest parts of the Iliad, the Shield Ekphrasis also provides a moment of calm before the storm. - Traces of horizontal folds. Numerous revisions, corrections, and insertions in ink and pencil; caption "Iliada 18 (S. 368-618)" broadly underlined in red crayon. In the final page of notes (written on the reverse of a leaf on which the beginning of the translation has been struck out), Kazantzakis states that this version is not to be considered final and will require revisions as to orthography and accentuation. While the present ms. was probably composed and revised over a period of several years (the variations in pen type and ductus pointing to at least three main stages), the statement that work had been ongoing for three years suggests a time frame around the year 1944. Includes Certificate of Authenticity, issued by Spanos Rare Books, Athens. Nº de ref. de la librería 31749

Descripción: London, Henry Denham, 1584., 1584. 4to. (8), 79, (1) pp. With woodcut headpiece on t. p. and initials. 19th century orange-red crushed morocco by Riviere with leading edges gilt and elaborate gilt inner dentelle, rebacked. All edges gilt. The exceedingly rare first edition of one of the earliest English treatises on horsemanship, derived in part from Xenophon, Federico Grisone's "Ordini di cavalcare", and other authors, and in part from Astley's own experience. This is, in fact, the first translation into English of Xenophon's treatise "Peri hippikes" ("On horsemanship"). - The publication of Astley's "Art of Riding", perhaps his single most lasting achievement, came late in his life as an Elizabethan courtier. Here, he relays the doctrine of the Italian riding schools as he and other Gentleman Pensioners understood it, particularly on training the horse to respond to the hand. Astley was on friendly terms with Thomas Blundeville, whose Grisone translation two decades earlier counts as the first treatise on horsemanship to be published in English. - First three leaves slightly browned, with the upper right corner of each leaf imperceptibly restored from another copy; a closed tear to f. A4. Altogether a remarkable clean and crisp copy in an English master binding. The Fitzwilliam-Gloucester copy, bound with a common companion piece, Claudio Corte's "Art of Riding" (also published by Denham in the same year) commanded £14,400 at Christie's in 2006. The catalogue notes that the scarcity of these two work "at auction varies markedly; ABPC records some 5 copies of Corte's work at auction since 1975, but none of Astley's". Huth p. 11. STC 884.

Descripción: Augsburg, Johann Schönigk f. Theophil Göbel, 1676., 1676. Small 4to. (14), 137, (19) pp. With engr. frontispiece and 22 engr. plates by Melchior Haffner. Contemporary calf. First facsimile edition of any oriental manuscript. 16 of the 22 finely engraved plates show a Persian perpetual calendar with Ottoman Turkish "commentarius" and floral borders. Welsch had acquired the ms. from Christoph Weikmann's Kunstkammer in Ulm. The remaining six plates are concerned with Arabian astronomy: astrolabe, orrery, zodiac, circular table of Sundays and names of the months in various languages. - The calculation of this calendar is today attributed to the 9th-c. Persian mathematician Wafâ al Buzjâni (cf. BSB München; Humboldt-Universität Berlin). The predominant attribution to one Turkish Sheikh Wafâ had been disputed by Babinger as early as 1927. Abu'l-Wafâ al Buzjâni is regarded as "the last great representative of the mathematics-astronomy school that arose around the beginning of the ninth century, shortly after the founding of Baghdad" (DSB I, 39). His astronomic oeuvre is preserved merely in fragments. The calligraphic commentary, however, is Turkish and (according to Babinger) was prepared by a 17th-c. magistrate, 'Ajn-i 'Alî Mueddinzâde. - Welsch (1624-77) was a physician and "a researcher of the very first magnitude [.] while the works of this polymath were mainly dedicated to the Arabian and Persian sciences, he also has provided proof of his close study of Ottoman Turkish. In this connexion, his important 'Commentarius in Ruzname Naurus' must be cited" (cf. Babinger 1919). Welsch's "Dissertatio" (with Arabic typeface) is aimed at the usefulness of the calendar for relative oriental chronology: he also compares the works of Schall von Bell and Andreas Müller on Chinese astronomy and chronology. - Bookplate of South Library on front pastedown. Occasionally browned. Zenker, Bibliotheca Orientalis I, 1077. Schnurrer 465. Babinger, Geschichtsschreiber der Osmanen (1927), 116 & 141.

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: Capri, 1894-1908., 1908. 8vo. 66 ff. of entries and 19 blank ff. Contemp. calf with corner fittings and clasp. The present guestbook with more than 230 entries of varying length constitutes a fine document of Rilke's sojourn on Capri, where he had been invited as guest of Mrs. Alice Faehndrich, née Baroness of Nordeck zur Rabenau, sister of Countess Luise Schwerin. The poet spent the winter and following spring of 1906/07 on the island, "from December 4 to May 15 [.] living the life of the House of Roses attentively and gratefully", as he penned on the day before his departure. His wife Clara, too, was twice a guest at the glamorous villa: on Jan. 14, on her way to Egypt, she pays her thanks "for being honoured with two beautiful days at the Villa Discopoli as an unexpected present on my journey - between Berlin and Egypt", and after her return she spends the last few weeks there with her husband: "returned from Egypt the 20th of April, I was received and indulged until May 15 in the dear Villa Discopoli". Rilke's brief but grateful entry does not reveal that here he composed his "Improvisations from the Capri Winter", a work that points beyond his "New Poems". Other guests at the Villa whom Rikle must have met during his stay there included Wolfgang von Tirpitz (the son of Alfred von Tirpitz), Ferdinand von Martitz, and Franz von Niebelschütz. The encounter with the with most far-reaching consequences, however, was that with the young Countess Manon zu Solms-Laubach, a niece of the Hereditary Count Friederich (1833-1900). After her departure, a correspondence ensued which by 1913 was to comprise on Rilke's side no less than 19 letters and a calligraphic transcription of what is possibly Rilke's most famous poem, "The Panther". - Rilke and his wife had known the sister of their hostess Alice (called "Alla" in the guestbook), Countess Luise von Schwerin, née Nordeck zu Rabenau, since 1905, when they had met in Dresden. At the beginning of his stay, Rilke had been the only guest, but with the arrival of Alice, Julie von Nordeck ("Nonna"), and Manon zu Solms-Laubach his solitary position ended. "The exploration of Anacapri, the ascent to Monte Solaro, the visit to the grotta of Migliera and to the little church of Sarita Maria a Cetrella unlocked a countryside similar to Greece [.] During the evenings, the ladies were an attentive audience, when they sat doing their needlework or peeling him an apple, ready to hear his day's work [.]" (cf. Donald A. Prater, Ein klingendes Glas. Das Leben R. M. Rilkes, Hamburg 1989). - Apart from the entries of the Rilkes, the guestbook contains an autograph pencil portrait by Pauline von Kalckreuth, as well as the two-page poem, "Le tombeau du poete" ("d'apres Henry Heine") by Camille du Locle, who was soon to end his life on Capri. Other entries are by Vera Amerongen, Julia and Eugéne Bonnard, Réne and Gilbert Clavel, Emmy and Ernst Gumppenberg, Baroness and Baron Alice and Walther von Falkenhausen, Hanns and Margarethe Floerke, Leonie and Marie Fontaine, Eberhard Hardeck zur Rabenau (Count of Schwerin), Heinrich and Elise Lützow, Richard Mackensen, Ferdinand von Martitz, Julie Baroness Nordeck zu Rabenau (née von Wallenberg), Baron Friedrich von Oppeln-Bronikowski (fine, 1½-page dedication with a 14-line poem), Emmy von Radetzky, Prince Heinrich XXX. zu Reuss, A. von Röder, Auguste Schepp, Leopold von Schlözer (with a half-page, coloured pencil drawing), Luise Schwerin (wife of Count Karl v.
