Washington Irving RIP VAN WINKLE 1916 Illustrated By Arthur Rackham Tissue-Guarded Color Plates & Vignettes

Lot 7001: Washington Irving RIP VAN WINKLE 1916 Illustrated By Arthur Rackham Tissue-Guarded Color Plates & Vignettes

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Rip Van WinkleAuthor: Washington Irving - Washington Irving was an American author, essayist, biographer and historian of the early 19th century. He was best known for his short stories "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle", both of which appear in his book "The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent." His historical works include biographies of George Washington, Oliver Goldsmith and Muhammad, and several histories of 15th-century Spain dealing with subjects such as Christopher Columbus, the Moors, and the Alhambra. Irving also served as the U.S. minister to Spain from 1842 to 1846.He made his literary debut in 1802 with a series of observational letters to the Morning Chronicle, written under the pseudonym Jonathan Oldstyle. After moving to England for the family business in 1815, he achieved international fame with the publication of "The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent." in 1819. He continued to publish regularly-and almost always successfully-throughout his life, and completed a five-volume biography of George Washington just eight months before his death, at age 76, in Tarrytown, New York.Irving, along with James Fenimore Cooper, was among the first American writers to earn acclaim in Europe, and Irving encouraged American authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Edgar Allan Poe. Irving was also admired by some European writers, including Sir Walter Scott, Lord Byron, Thomas Campbell, Francis Jeffrey, and Charles Dickens. As America's first genuine internationally best-selling author, Irving advocated for writing as a legitimate profession, and argued for stronger laws to protect American writers from copyright infringement.Publisher: Doubleday Page & Co.City: New YorkYear: 1916Binding Style: HardcoverPagination: x/36 pagesWidth: 7.5" Height: 10"Book Details: "Cheaper Issue, with 25 Illustrations in Colour and many new Illustrations in the Text, October 1916."Condition / Notes: Antique volume is bound in light green cloth with stamped gilt lettering and pictorial design to front cover showing title character.

Pierre de Marca MARCA HISPANICA 1688 First Edition Rare Antique History Of Catalonia Fold-Out Map

Lot 7002: Pierre de Marca MARCA HISPANICA 1688 First Edition Rare Antique History Of Catalonia Fold-Out Map

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Marca hispanica, sive Limes hispanicus, hoc est, Geographica & historica descriptio Cataloniae, Ruscinonis, & circumjacentium populorum.Author: Pierre de Marca - Pierre de Marca was a French bishop and historian, born at Gan in Béarn of a family distinguished in the magistracy.His family was known among judicial circles in the 16th century, and maintained the Roman Catholic faith after the official introduction of the Reformed religion into Navarre. After having studied law at the University of Toulouse he practised successfully at Pau. But he was ambitious, and turned to a larger sphere.He ardently called for the armed intervention of King Louis XIII in Béarn, and on this occasion published his first writing, Discours d'un Béarnais, très fidèle sujet du roi, sur l'Édit du retablissement de la religion catholique dans tout le Béarn (1618). After an easy military campaign of 1620, the possessions which had been taken by the Protestants were given back to the Roman Catholic Church; this task was performed, under his supervision, with judgment and moderation.During the siege of La Rochelle he performed a mission which brought him in touch with Richelieu, who shortly afterwards nominated him intendant de justice in Béarn (1631), and in 1639 summoned him to Paris with the title of counsellor of state. The following year, the question of the intervention of kings in the election of bishops having been raised in a pamphlet by Charles Hersent (Optatus Gallus de cavendo schismate, 1640), Marca defended what were then called the liberties of the Gallican Church, in his celebrated treatise De concordia sacerdotii et imperii seu de libertatibus ecclesiae gallicanae (Paris, 1641). He was soon rewarded for this service.Although he had not yet taken even the minor holy orders, he was nominated bishop of Couserans (Gascony) by the king on December 28, 1641. but Pope Urban VIII refused to give his sanction. It was only after Marca had formally denied those propositions contained in De concordia which were displeasing to Rome that he was proclaimed in the consistory (January 13, 1648).During this time, and until 1651, he was governor of the province of Catalonia, then occupied by the French. After the Treaty of the Pyrenees, he was sent to direct the conference which had been formed to fix the limits of Roussillon, which had just been ceded to France (1660).Marca now allied himself to the fortunes of Mazarin, and remained faithful to him even during the Fronde. As a recompense, he was nominated archbishop of Toulouse (May 28, 1652), but had to wait for the bulls of investiture until March 23, 1654.It was difficult for him to please both pope and king. In the struggle against the Jansenists, he used all the influence he had with the clergy to secure the passage of the apostolic constitution of March 31, 1653 (Relation de ce qui s'est fait depuis 1653 dans les assemblées des évêques au sujet des cinq propositions, 1657); but in the rebellion raised by Cardinal de Retz, archbishop of Paris, against the king, he took the part of the king against the pope. Michel Le Tellier having ordered him to refute a thesis of the college of Clermont on the infallibility of the pope, Marca wrote a treatise which was most Gallican in its ideas, but refused to publish it for fear of drawing down the indignation of Rome. These tactics were successful, and when Retz, weary of a struggle without definite results, resigned the archbishopric, Marca became his successor (February 26, 1662). He did not derive much profit from this new favor, as he died in Paris on the 29th of June following, without his nomination having been sanctioned by the pope.When very young he showed an interest in the history of his native land, and in 1617, at the age of twenty-three, he had set to work looking through archives, copying charters, and corresponding with the principal men of learning of his time, the brothers Dupuy, André Duchesne and Jean Besly, whom he visited in Poitou. His Histoire de Béarn was published at Paris in 1640. It was not so well received as his De concordia, but is more appreciated by posterity. If Marca's criticism is too often undecided, both in the ancient epochs, where he supports the text by a certain amount of guesswork and in certain points where he touches on religion, yet he always gives the text correctly. A number of chapters end with an interesting collection of charters. It is to be regretted that this incomplete work does not go beyond 1300.During his long stay in Catalonia he made preparations for a geographical and historical description. of this province, which was bound to France by so many political and literary associations. Etienne Baluze, who became his secretary in 1656, helped him with the work and finished it, adding clever appendices and publishing the whole in 1688 under the title "Marca hispanica."Marca married Marguerite de Forgues on June 4, 1618, and had one son and three daughters. His son, Galactoire, who was president of the parliament of Navarre, died on February 10, 1689.Marcas' biography was written in Latin by two of his intimate friends, Baluze, his secretary (Epistola ad Samuelem Sorbierium, de vita, gestis et scriptis Petri de Marca, Paris, 1663), and his cousin, Paul de Faget, at the beginning of a collection of Marca's theological pamphlets, first published by Paul de Faget in 1668. This publication contained four treatises on the Eucharist, the sacrifice of the Mass, the erection of the patriarchate of Constantinople (in Latin), and the sacrament of the Eucharist (in French). It was supposed to contain heretical propositions and caused a good deal of scandal, inciting Baluze against Faget, both of whom abused the other, to defend the memory of the prelate.Publisher: Franciscus MuguetCity: ParisYear: 1688Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: 14 unnumbered preliminary pages/1489 pages plus 30 pages of indexWidth: 10.5" Height: 15"Book Details: Condition / Notes: This is a rare first edition of this seminal historical work on Catalonia.

Edgar Degas SELF-PORTRAIT c1857 Original Etching with Drypoint

Lot 7005: Edgar Degas SELF-PORTRAIT c1857 Original Etching with Drypoint

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Self-PortraitArtist: Edgar DegasMedium: EngravingFeatures: OriginalPrint Year: 1915Width: 8.25" Height: 12.0"Art Notes: Self-portrait of Degas with cancellation lines. Original etching with drypoint. 1857. Impression from the first edition of the cancelled plate. As issued by Vollard in an edition of 150 impressions in 1915. Only some 15 impressions are known prior to the cancellation."This probing self-appraisal was made when the artist was only twenty-three years old. The maturity of Degas's gaze is matched by the sophistication of his technique. He has printed this etching with a personalized, rich wiping of the plate that anticipates his later work in monotypes. A work of surprising sophistication for a relatively young practitioner of the art, this etching was clearly inspired by the early graphic self-portraits of Rembrandt. Degas gleaned from the Baroque master his capacity to create an atmosphere from which a convincing presence emerges."

For lots which are not books, the stated shipping cost in this listing will apply only to addresses within the continental 48 states.

To inspect and acquire more detailed information about this lot, please attend our live preview before the auction. The following article by Yanek Mieczkowski, dated Dec. 9, 2003 appears in History News Network and sheds some light on the story of these works:I first met Barber Conable in 1994, as he enjoyed retirement in his hometown of Alexander, New York, a village southwest of Rochester. I was a graduate student researching a dissertation on Gerald Ford's presidency, and since Conable had been Ford's close friend in Congress and during Ford's years in the White House, I knew that he could provide valuable insights. Conable invited me to his home, which turned out to be a veritable museum of American history.His study contained a priceless collection of Iroquois masks and tomahawks. I noticed framed, meticulous pencil sketches on some walls, and he explained that they were just doodles that he had made while a congressman.Just doodles? They looked beautiful, and they had been enough to impress Ronald Reagan. The president had heard about the congressman's drawings, and asked to have some. Conable sent a few samples to the White House. In return, the president sent a page of his own sketches, on White House stationery, to the congressman. "Barber," the president wrote. "These are just doodles. Yours are art."Condition / Notes: All drawings are in very good condition, with no tears, chipping or holes. Very light stain appears in upper right-hand side of drawing bearing letterhead of Committee on the Budget.For lots which include only books, our shipping charge applies to any address within the fifty United States.

10V THE WORKS OF HENRY WADSWORTH 1909 First Edition Antique Decorative American Literature Plates

Lot 7049: 10V THE WORKS OF HENRY WADSWORTH 1909 First Edition Antique Decorative American Literature Plates

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: The Works of Henry Wadsworth LongfellowAuthor: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was an American poet and educator whose works include "Paul Revere's Ride", "The Song of Hiawatha," and "Evangeline." He was also the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's "The Divine Comedy" and was one of the five Fireside Poets. Longfellow was born in Portland, Maine, then part of Massachusetts, and studied at Bowdoin College. After spending time in Europe he became a professor at Bowdoin and, later, at Harvard College. His first major poetry collections were "Voices of the Night" (1839) and "Ballads and Other Poems" (1841). Longfellow retired from teaching in 1854 to focus on his writing, living the remainder of his life in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in a former headquarters of George Washington. His first wife, Mary Potter, died in 1835 after a miscarriage. His second wife, Frances Appleton, died in 1861 after sustaining burns from her dress catching fire. After her death, Longfellow had difficulty writing poetry for a time and focused on his translation. He died in 1882. Longfellow predominantly wrote lyric poems which are known for their musicality and which often presented stories of mythology and legend. He became the most popular American poet of his day and also had success overseas. He has been criticized, however, for imitating European styles and writing specifically for the masses.
