Todt wurde als Sohn eines Schullehrers und Organisten in Düsterort bei Ueckermünde geboren. Er besuchte zunächst das Stettiner Lehrerseminar, um - wie sein Vater - den Beruf des Schullehrers einzuschlagen. Nach Abschluss des Seminars unterrichtete er von 1853 bis 1856 in Stettin. Er entschloss sich dann aber, hauptberuflicher Musiker zu werden. 1863 kam Todt als Organist an die Peter-und-Paul-Kirche in Stettin. 1868 wechselte er in Stettin als Kantor und Organist an die Johanniskirche. Ab 1875 wirkte er als freischaffender Organist und Komponist in Stettin. Als Komponist veröffentlichte Todt 79 Werke. In einigen Kompositionen bezog er sich auf den Stettiner Komponisten Carl Loewe; ferner führte er Werke Loewes in Stettin auf. Zum Gedächtnis an Carl Loewe komponierte er ein Stück zu dem Text Die Orgel tönt noch immer fort von Ludwig Giesebrecht, Lehrer am Stettiner Marienstiftsgymnasium.Todt galt in zeitgenössischen Lexika als einer der bedeutendsten Organisten seiner Zeit. Seine Kompositionen jedoch sind nach seinem Tode weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten. - Teils wenig fleckig, meist gut erhalten, Einband berieben. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Canal interocéanique par l'isthme du Darien Nouvelle-Grenade (Amérique du Sud) : canalisation par la colonisation.

      Paris : Chez France 1860 - In-8° broché sous couverture d'attente moderne, 99 [2] pages et une immense carte dépliante en couleurs à 28 pans. El negociante francés Athanase Airiau presentó en 1860 a las autoridades de la Confederación Granadina (actual Colombia) una propuesta de canalización y colonización del istmo de Panamá. La propuesta incluyó varios mapas y planos dedicados a figuras políticas como Pedro Alcántara Herrán (presidente entre 1841-1845) y a Mariano Ospina Pérez (presidente entre 1857-1861). Este mapa es una presentación general del proyecto, que consistía en fundar una ciudad y múltiples granjas a su alrededor, que serían ocupadas por colonos de origen europeo, que se dedicarían por igual a labores agropecuarias y a la construcción y mantenimiento del canal. El mapa incluye una vista a vuelo de pájaro del canal ("Plan géographique a vol d'oiseau"), y cuatro cortes de perfil de terreno, que muestran aspectos topográficos del proyecto: "Profil de la Tranchée a operer pour le Canal du Darien depuis Puerto Escoces jusqu'a Principe sur Savana", "Profil de l?Isthme de Tehuantepec", "Profil du Terrain entre le lac Nicaragua et le Golfe de Salinas", y "Profil de l?istme de Panama (par Garella)". El cartucho decorativo del mapa es una alegoría general del proyecto, allí aparecen los productos agrícolas que serían cultivados por los colonos, también un escudo de la confederación granadina, en el que aparece el istmo de panamá. Se encuentra también la figura tutelar de Atenea, diosa de la ciencia y el progreso, junto a un indígena americano, representando al continente americano. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Tribulations des bains de mer d`Ostende. Mit einem Exlibris von Prof. Adam Politzer.

      Brügge/Buffa & Cie., ca. 1860. - 18 Bl., unpag. sowie einem Titelblatt. Sehr seltene Sammlung satirischer Illustrationen (Lithographien) über das Badeleben in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts in dem mondänen Seebad Ostende. Dieses erlebte in jener Zeit durch die regelmäßigen Besuche der königlichen Familie eine besonders glanzvolle Epoche und veranlasste den Künstler zu einer satirischen Auseinandersetzung mit den manifest werdenden Auswüchsen dieser frühen Form des Tourismus. CHAM (1819-1879) war ein französischer Karikaturist, der sich wiederholt medizinischen Themen widmete. Auf der Innenseite des vorderen Buchdeckels findet sich ein Exlibris von Prof. Adam Politzer (1835-1920). Politzer war ein österreichischer Mediziner auf dem Gebiet der Ohrenheilkunde. Er leitete ab 1873 die Wiener Universitätsklinik für Ohrenheilkunde. Nach ihm ist die aktive Belüftung der Ohrtrompete durch den Arzt benannt. Auf dem Exlibris findet sich im Zentrum ein Portrait in Seitenansicht sowie folgender Text: Exlibris Prof. Adami Politzer opera sculpturae cari nepotis Waltheri Friedländer.- Einband mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren. Seiten an den Rändern minimal fleckig. Insgesamt gut erhaltenes Exemplar. Sprache: Französisch Gewicht in Gramm: 749 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Quartetten fur 2 Violinen, Bratsche u. Violoncell. Opus 59: 1, 2, 3; Opus 75; 93; Opus 127; 130; 131; 132; 135 [Manuscript] String Quartets

      Germany/ Austria: Unpublished, 1860 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 4 Manuscript Volumes containing all of Beethoven's string quartets from the Opus 59 'Rasumovsky' quartets onwards, owned by a leading string player who worked with the Beethoven Quartet Society, Louis Ries. The four volumes are uniformly bound in half sheepskin over marbled boards with grey spine labels detailing their contents: 'Drey Quartetten v. L. Van Beethoven Op 59'; 'Drey Quartetten von L.V. Beethoven Op 75. Op 93'; 'Zwey Quartteten von L. V. Beethoven Op 127. Op 130'; 'Drey Quartetten von L. Van Beethoven Op 131, 132, 135'. The bindings are rubbed especially to the corners with the lower half of the backstrip of the first volume (Op 59) missing. Ries has inscribed his first volume on the first blank: 'To my dear friend and enthusiastic Quartett companion Alfred C. Jordan in remembrance of many enjoyable hours spent together. August 1913 Louis Ries.' (Ries' work as a string quartet player is amply recorded in the last quarter of the nineteenth century - we've not been ale to locate Jordan.) This inscription would appear to be written about half a century after the copying of the manuscripts which was executed by a professional German or Austrian copyist who has provided title pages for each successive work. Comparison with a printed Urtext edition suggests the copyist achieved a high degree of accuracy with an early edition of the works although there also some interesting discrepancies as in the 'Lento' movement of Op 135 where a slightly later musician (possibly Ries himself) has interpolated two additional musical staves to take into account a revised reading of the first violin part which didn't appear until the second edition but had become (and remains) the preferred reading. Many of the quartet movements have rehearsal numbers noted throughout, suggesting that these manuscripts were used to facilitate quartet rehearsals and in this context it is interesting to note that the six Opus 18 quartets do not ever appear to have formed part of this sequence. Beautiful though they are, the are much simpler in musical form that Beethoven's middle and late period quartets and therefore the presence of a full score would be less significant for rehearsal purposes. Manuscripts of Beethoven's quartets in any form are most uncommon on the market.Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about this book..

        LEAVES OF GRASS

      Boston: Thayer and Eldridge, 1860-61. First Boston Edition, First Trade Edition. The previous issues of 1855 and 1856 had been published by the author in Brooklyn, New York. This edition reworked by Whitman with significant new inclusions as noted below. With engraved frontispiece portrait of the author on heavy stock, Thick 8vo, publisher's rare original dark-green textured cloth, lettered and beautifully decorated in blind on both covers, the spine lettered in gilt and decorated in blind, Myerson's binding C (green TR cloth). iv, 456 pp. A clean and quite fresh copy, very well preserved, the cloth still dark and the gilt sharp, no fading at the spine.. Expert and unobtrusive skillful restoration to the tips of the spine panel and inner hinges at the meeting of the paste-downs and free-flys. IMPORTANT FIRST TRADE EDITION AND VERY SCARCE IN THIS BINDING OF DARK GREEN CLOTH. First Boston and first general trade published issuance of LEAVES OF GRASS. This edition included 122 new poems and two new sections. One of the earliest and most important editions of this great American literary work which remains attainable. Whitman began this edition with "Proto-Leaf"["Starting from Paumanok"] a lovely apologia for his work. And this edition has the two very important clusters--"Enfans d'Adam" and "Calamus"---focusing on love. Whitman's LEAVES OF GRASS is, arguably, the greatest work in all of American literature. LEAVES OF GRASS portrayed America at the crossroads between an old world, soon to be caste off, and the new world of our future present. With the publication of LEAVES OF GRASS in 1855, Whitman, the poet of democracy, ushered in a new era in American letters, describing specifically American experiences in a distinctly American idiom. From its first publication in 1855, he had complete confidence in the greatness of both the book and its author. "Always the champion of the common man, Whitman is both the poet and the prophet of democracy. The whole of LEAVES OF GRASS is imbued with the spirit of brotherhood and a pride in the democracy of the young American nation. In a sense, it is America's second Declaration of Independence: that of 1776 was political, this of 1855 intellectual. ...The poems are saturated 'with a vehemence of pride and audacity of freedom necessary to loosen the mind of still-to-be-formed America from the folds, the superstitions, and all the long, tenacious, and stifling anti-democratic authorities of Asiatic and European past'. To the young nation, only just becoming aware of an individual literary identity distinct from its European origins, Whitman's message and his outspoken confidence came at a decisive moment. LEAVES OF GRASS was Whitman's favorite child. From the time of its original publication,...until the year of his death, he continued revising and enlarging it. If (his) reputation has fluctuated over the years and his position among, if indeed not at the head of, the list of great American poets was not assured until some time after his death, there was never any doubt of the matter in his own mind. 'I know I am deathless', he wrote. 'Whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years, I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait.' Time has vindicated his conviction." PMM

In: Jahres-Bericht des physikalischen Vereins zu Frankfurt am Main für das Rechnungsjahr 1860-1861, pp. 57-64. 8vo (219 x 140 mm). Whole volume, 80 pp., illustrations in text and 6 folding plates. Wrapper to spine as issued, Pages crisp and clean with just very minor soiling to lower margin of title-page. Fine copy of the rare milestone paper. ---- Darmstaedter 612. Wheeler Gift 1532 (detailed with ills.); see also DSB I, 582 and PMM 365 (for Ball). - The RARE FIRST EDITION of Reis's paper on the invention of the telephone as presented in a lecture before the Physical Society of Frankfurt on 26 October 1861. Reis was the second man after Bourseul to think of transmitting speech electrically. It was Reis who coined the term "telephone" and he was the first, in 1860, to produce a functioning device that could transmit musical notes, indistinct speech, and occasionally distinct speech by means of electric signals. Practically, Reis's telephones had varying success; some worked well and others produced only static. Nevertheless, they were displayed all over Europe and one was on show in Scotland when Bell was there visiting his father. Erstdruck von Reis' Vortrag vor dem physikalischen Verein in Frankfurt, in dem er den von ihm entwickelten Apparat zur Reproduktion von Tönen über beliebige Entfernungen durch den elektrischen Strom vorstellt. Seine Erfindung geriet, nicht zuletzt durch die Gegnerschaft Poggendorffs, in Vergessenheit. Erst mit Graham Ball, der 1876 ein verbessertes Gerät als eigene Erfindung zum Patent anmeldete, begann der Siegeszug des Telephons. - Enthält noch 11 weitere Artikel, darunter vier von R. C. Böttger (vgl. DSB II, 340). Near Fine.

        Autograph Letter Signed, to Mrs. [William] Cowper [later Cowper-Temple].

      Ruskin lived semi-permanently at Winnington Hall in the 1860s: It was a school for girls and Ruskin taught various subjects including Bible, geology, art, and music. His correspondent was his intimate and confidante in the matter of his unfortunate and unrequited love for Rose La Touche. This letter to Mrs. Cowper (née Georgianna Tollemache) colorfully, vividly, and indulgently describes the energetic merrymaking of those girls who have not gone home for Christmas holiday. There are about 14 or 15 of them and on the wet day before that of the letter they played at noisy "hide & seek all day" in the enormous building: "The house has about three quarters of a mile of up and down corridors" and presently there are "seven or eight dozen empty rooms" because of the absent girls. As per our caption, he also writes in detail about teaching songs and dances to his charges. On a personal note, he will go and have dinner with the Cowpers on Monday, he promises. The text of the letter was published from the Cook and Wedderburn transcripts in the Bodleian Library (The Winnington Letters, ed. by Van Akin Burd, Cambridge, MA: Belknap Press of Harvard University, 1969; pp. 531-32). There are two small differences in the original that are not found in the printed version. Provenance: In the stock of Thomas H. Telford, an antiques and book dealer; sold in 1933 to Mrs. W.S. Bowen of Westfield, N.J.

Maps are beautifully hand-colored, and diagrams of note include a fascinating plate arranging rivers and mountains of the world relative to size, and a "Universal Time and Distance Indicator." These atlases, issued almost every year from 1860 to 1887, "accurately reflect the expansion of the country, showing the growth of cities, towns and counties, as well as the emerging state boundaries in the west, and the development of the railroads nationwide." This rare and beautiful atlas is an excellent example of an essential household tool of the 19th century.

        LAKE REGIONS OF CENTRAL AFRICA: A Picture of Exploration

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1860. First Edition, the American Issue published the same year as the London edition. With 35 black and white illustrations, 12 on plates and the remainder in the text. And with a folding map of Zanzibar and the Great Lakes in Eastern Africa, in excellent state. Tall, thick 8vo, publisher's original burgundy cloth, elaborately decorated in blind on the covers and spine, the spine also gilt lettered. 572, [4] ads pp. A rather exceptional copy of this scarce book. The endpapers and hinges are unusually clean and well preserved, the text-block is solid and tight, and very clean throughout, the map and plates all in excellent condition. The exterior is also extremely fresh, the cloth clean and with no fading, though the gilt on the spine has lost its luster, very minor rubbing to edges and corners but in all quite fine. RARE FIRST EDITION AMERICAN ISSUE IN EXEMPLARY CONDITION. The standard 1st edition was published the same year by Longman, Green, Longman and Roberts and this 1st American edition was also published in 1860. It contains the same plates as the English counterpart but in this case untinted. This copy with the bookplate of Joseph Johnson Brown, who has inscribed the free-fly J.J.B./ Zanzibar Aug. 11, 1865. Brown was associated with the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences. Burton returned to Africa, after his expedition to Harrar, to undertake an exploration of the "then utterly unknown Lake regions of Central Africa." His stated intention was to correct certain geographical errors (of which there were many at that time) concerning Africa and to survey as fully as possible the resources of Central and intertropical Africa. But the real reason he wanted to venture into that unknown wilderness was to find the Jebel Kumri, the fabled "Mountains of the Moon," and to find the source of the Nile river. Burton and Speke first stopped at Zanzibar, then explored the coastal regions around Mombassa, and returned to Zanzibar, from whence they set out for Ujiji--about a thousand miles inland, on the shore of the relatively unknown Lake Tanganyika. It took seven and a half months to arrive, and when there they explored the lake ineffectually due to their wretched physical condition and the unwillingness of the natives and Arab traders to assist them. Upon the point of the direction of flow of a certain river attached to the lake--whether it flowed into, or out of, the lake--they received conflicting information from locals. They returned to Kazeh, two-hundred and sixty miles east, where they recovered somewhat their health, and Burton sent Speke alone to investigate a large lake that the Arab traders had said lay fifteen or sixteen marches to the north. Speke visited the lake briefly, obtained some vague information from the locals, and decided he had discovered the true source of the Nile, a decision that "would affect men's careers and lives and lead to his own death," as Edward Rice puts it (p. 310). After Speke's return from the side-trip, the expedition returned to Zanzibar. This expedition into Central Africa was perhaps the most taxing of Burton's career; his journey to the Holy Cities of Arabia was a cake-walk by comparison as far as physical harships were concerned; and the storm of geographical controversy that greeted him upon his return to London, where he found that Speke had published his erroneous conclusions and attached all the glory of the expedition to himself, left Burton "disgusted, desponding, and left behind in the spirit and in the flesh," according to his old friend, Alfred Bate Richards. To this day, " The Lake Regions" is considered one of Burton's very best books.

        Quartetten fur 2 Violinen, Bratsche u. Violoncell. Opus 59: 1, 2, 3; Opus 75; 93; Opus 127; 130; 131; 132; 135 [Manuscript]

      4 Manuscript Volumes containing all of Beethoven's string quartets from the Opus 59 'Rasumovsky' quartets onwards, owned by a leading string player who worked with the Beethoven Quartet Society, Louis Ries. The four volumes are uniformly bound in half sheepskin over marbled boards with grey spine labels detailing their contents: 'Drey Quartetten v. L. Van Beethoven Op 59'; 'Drey Quartetten von L.V. Beethoven Op 75. Op 93'; 'Zwey Quartteten von L. V. Beethoven Op 127. Op 130'; 'Drey Quartetten von L. Van Beethoven Op 131, 132, 135'. The bindings are rubbed especially to the corners with the lower half of the backstrip of the first volume (Op 59) missing. Ries has inscribed his first volume on the first blank: 'To my dear friend and enthusiastic Quartett companion Alfred C. Jordan in remembrance of many enjoyable hours spent together. August 1913 Louis Ries.' (Ries' work as a string quartet player is amply recorded in the last quarter of the nineteenth century - we've not been ale to locate Jordan.) This inscription would appear to be written about half a century after the copying of the manuscripts which was executed by a professional German or Austrian copyist who has provided title pages for each successive work. Comparison with a printed Urtext edition suggests the copyist achieved a high degree of accuracy with an early edition of the works although there also some interesting discrepancies as in the 'Lento' movement of Op 135 where a slightly later musician (possibly Ries himself) has interpolated two additional musical staves to take into account a revised reading of the first violin part which didn't appear until the second edition but had become (and remains) the preferred reading. Many of the quartet movements have rehearsal numbers noted throughout, suggesting that these manuscripts were used to facilitate quartet rehearsals and in this context it is interesting to note that the six Opus 18 quartets do not ever appear to have formed part of this sequence. Beautiful though they are, the are much simpler in musical form that Beethoven's middle and late period quartets and therefore the presence of a full score would be less significant for rehearsal purposes. Manuscripts of Beethoven's quartets in any form are most uncommon on the market

        Manuscript compendium on physics and engineering.

      [Possibly Milan, likely 1860s]. - Large 4to (ca. 200 x 260 mm). Italian manuscript on paper, 570 written pages, with a few additional blanks, illustrated throughout with more than 200 pen and ink drawings of scientific equipment, machine models, experiments, etc., including a full-page coloured plate showing a balloon and two plates removed from Meyers Conversations-Lexikon. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards (rubbed; spine defective). An encompassing 19th century manual on physics and mechanics, likely a lecture manuscript, profusely illustrated and twice signed "Visconti Achille" on the flyleaf and at the head of the first page of text. Whether or not the writer is to be identified with the like-named physician (rather than physicist) who, serving as prosector at Milan's Ospedale Maggiore, in 1870 first discovered the lung condition silicosis, must remain a matter of further research. The apparent date of composition would be consistent with a possible earlier pursuit of a university training in physics; the inclusion of an 1897 Milanese newspaper clipping, mounted to the pastedown and commemorating the passing of the great physicist Galileo Ferraris, would point both toward the medical man's known area of activity and away from a specialized anatomist with a by-then substantial list of anatomical and pathological publications to his name. The hefty, closely written volume here present covers subjects ranging from barometers to the refraction of light, fully illustrated with neat sketches and a particularly charming full-page pen and wash drawing of a hot air balloon. - Binding rubbed; interior sound.

Insgesamt schöne Ansicht des Städtchens Unten links signiert: gezeichnet von J. J. Kuhn, 1860. - Ajdov ina (deutsch Haidenschaft, italienisch Aidussina) ist eine Kleinstadt und Gemeinde in Slowenien. Sie liegt zwischen Nova Gorica und Postojna. Die Stadt war zur Römerzeit ein befestigtes Lager mit Poststation namens Castra, ein Bestandteil des Sperrwerkes der Claustra Alpium Iuliarum. Das Lager lag an der Via Gemina, einer wichtigen Verbindungsstraße von und nach Italien, die von Emona (Ljubljana) nach Aquileia über den Pass des Birnbaumer Waldes führte. Vor den Mauern von Castra fand am 6. September des Jahres 394 die Schlacht am Frigidus statt, in der Kaiser Theodosius I. über seinen Widersacher Eugenius siegte. Im Jahre 451 wurde das Lager von den Hunnen unter Attila zerstört.Im Jahre 1507 gewährte Maximilian I. der Siedlung die Marktrechte, was der Stadt einen Aufschwung bescherte. 1918-1945 stand die Gemeinde unter italienischer Verwaltung und gehörte zur Provinz Gorizia (1924-27 zur Provinz Udine).
