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 competant 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: 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 Bert 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.

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: 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). This work does not describe the present collection; all other drawings are unpublished. Nº de ref. de la librería 17017

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: 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: [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".

Fleck, Nr. 24 mit hds. Beschreibung in den Marginalien, Mappe m.

Comprehensive letter from a trip to Trieste to his brother-in-law, the Viennese painter Anton Peschka (1885-1940): "[.] Yesterday I drew some fishing boats outside. It's strange how you can create the finest shades with the mixture on the palette [.] I want to draw some of those crouching Italians, but fear they will assume an unnatural position if they notice me [.]". - Schiele goes on to express his resentment of the Lower Austrian Semmering landscape ("these trashy romantic nouveau chalets and modern villas and hotels. Utterly anorganic!"). - Schiele had undertaken his trip to Trieste after his release from prison, having served for 24 days for an alleged sexual offense. Printed in: Arthur Roessler.

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: 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.

Descripción: Verschiedene Orte, 1653 bis 1660., 1660. Mit einem Aquarell (Stadt-Ansicht) und einer farbigen Wappenmalerei. Schwarzbrauner Lederband der Zeit mit reicher Goldprägung ("I. C. L. M. S. / 1653") und Goldschnitt. Quer-8vo. Das Stammbuch des Theologen Johann Christoph Letsch (1634-1686) umfaßt über 80 Eintragungen aus Berlin (6), Breslau (14), Brieg (22), Oels (2), Ohlau (1), Strehlen (7) und Wittenberg (33) aus den Jahren 1653 bis 1660. Der mit Abstand prominenteste Eintrag stammt von dem schlesischen Dichter Friedrich Frh. von Logau (1604-1655; dat. Brieg, 19. III. 1653, 1 S.): "Wer nicht bey den schlauen Höfen allen Köpfen weiß zu kommen, Der hat selbsten nicht nach Hofe, was von Kopfe mit genommen. Hingegen.

C. Letsch besuchte das Gymnasium in Brieg und in Breslau und studierte von 1656 bis 1659 Theologie in Wittenberg. Er wurde 1662 Konrektor in Liegnitz und 1664 Diakon bzw. 1672 Pastor in Brieg. - Logaus Eintragung von größter Seltenheit; nur ein vergleichbares Blatt auf deutschsprachigen Auktionen der vergangenen 30 Jahre. - Etwas gebräunt und fleckig; Bindung gelockert; der Einband mit einigen Wurmlöchern, die Ecken defekt bzw. bestoßen, die Goldprägung etwas verblichen.

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). Wing M659. Poynter 20.7. Wellcome IV, 56 (incomplete). Cf. Mennessier de la Lance II, 156. Huth p. 17 (other editions). Nº de ref. de la librería 32364

First printed edition of the Horologion, and "the first entirely Greek liturgical book [.] The designs of the initials and headpieces [.] are based on the illuminations in his manuscripts [.] The balance between the red of the decorative designs and the black of the letterpress [.] create[s] an exceedingly attractive overall effect with a distinctive style of its own. The headpieces, consisting of guilloches with ornamental cusps, are printed in red and in most cases extend across the full width of the text. The illuminated initials, though small, are distinctively calligraphic in style and are notable for their fine craftsmanship and simplicity" (Staikos). - Paper browned and with occasional strong fingerstaining. Completely missing are: double-page title (f. A 1), quire kappa, ff. lambda 1+8, my 1+8, ny 1+8, ypsilon 4+5, omega 6 (recto: colophon; verso: vacat). Preserved in fragments only are: ff.

Descripción: Tonnere, 1779-1785., 1785. Various formats. Altogether 16 ff. Including 7 autograph documents on large Folio sheets signed, partly with initials, and partly in the third person within the text, varying between "Mlle la ch're D'Eon," "La ch're D'Eon," and "D.". Ledger pages or receipts, listing prices paid or owed for firewood, lumber, food, clothing and other items, documenting the daily life of an 18th century crossdresser. - Éon de Beaumont was a French transsexual political adventurer, secret agent of Louis XV in Russia (1755), then minister to England. The term "eonism" denoting the tendency to adopt the costume and manners of the opposite sex, is derived from his name. Despite d'Éon's wearing a dragoon's uniform all the time, there were rumors that he was actually a woman, and a betting pool was started on the London Stock Exchange about his true sex. D'Éon finally claimed to be physically not a man, but a woman, and demanded recognition by the government as such. King Louis XVI and his court complied, but demanded that d'Éon dress appropriately and wear women's clothing. D'Éon agreed, especially when the king granted him funds for a new wardrobe. Overall, Charles d’Éon spent his first 49 years as a man, and his last 33 years as a woman. Upon death, a council of physicians discovered that d'Éon's body was anatomically male.

Descripción: Vienna, in Commission der Schmidlschen Buchhandlung, 1831-1841., 1841. 8vo. 34 vols. (4 series). With 100 engr. plates (some folding) and 8 lithographs. Contemp. half calf with double labels to gilt spine. Marbled endpapers; all edges marbled. Complete copy with all 108 plates. "Almost never encountered complete" (cf. Deuticke, Schönborn cat. IV, 295). This set, one of the most significant Austrian topographical works ever produced, is divided into four series: "Viertel unter dem Wienerwald" (1831-33, 7 vols.), "Viertel unter dem Manhartsberg" (1833-35, 7 vols.), "Viertel Ober-Wienerwald" (1835-38, 14 vols.), and "Viertel Ober-Manhartsberg" (1839-41, 6 vols.). The fine plates depict views of castles, monasteries, ruins, and landscapes, as well as historical documents. The collation of the present copy departs slights from that provided by Nebehay/Wagner: no. 50 "Die Capelle in Tulln" used as frontispiece (transposed with no. 49 "Schloss Greifenstein"), no. 83 "Der Lunzer See" used as frontispiece (transposed with no. 82 "Schloss Stiebar"). - According to Czeike, most of the volumes already published were destroyed in 1835 at the command of the government, as the title pages incorrectly gave the author's name with the noble title "von Sickingen". After being sentenced to a fine, the author published the subsequent volumes anonymously. - Very appealing set in uniform contemp. half calf; some volumes rubbed rather strongly, otherwise perfect. The volumes of the "Viertel Ober-Wienerwald" series are very ably bound in the uniform style around 1900. Interior is uncommonly clean and spotless. Last in the collection of Prof. Dr. Ferdinand Engel; several volumes have previous stamped ownership "A. G. E. von Seydel". Mayer coll. 7933. Eckl coll. III, 227. Czeike V, 181. Nebehay/Wagner III, 680. Nº de ref. de la librería 21799
