Autographs, Prints, & Memorabilia From the Collection of Marilyn Horne Part II: M-Z
Specialities : Autographs
The American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne is world-renowned as both a singer and educator. She has performed at leading opera houses throughout the world, including extensively at the Metropolitan Opera in New York as well as at La Scala and Covent Garden.
What is not generally known is the fact that she has been a collector of music- and opera-related documents and memorabilia (including autograph letters, prints, photographs, programs, etc. spanning the 18th through 20th centuries) over the course of her long career.
New York International Antiquarian Book Fair Catalogue
We invite you to take a look at our selection of rare and interesting books on diverse subjects from the dawn of printing to the present day.
On this important occasion, we would like to show you presentation copies and autographs, including a page from the score of the main theme of Casino Royale (1967) by Burt Bacharach (n. 11) and a presentation copy by the great Italian Romantic Ugo Foscolo (n. 5) of his translation of Sterne’s Sentimental Journey (1814).
A wonderful leaf from a 1455 Gutenberg Bible (n. 21) is included in our selection of manuscripts and incunabula, which further features a breviary from the Abbey of St. Loup of Troyes (n. 14) and a wonderful printed border by Johann Zainer of Ulm (n. 19).
One of our best represented categories, Natural History will showcase an exceptional volume of the Historia Naturalis by Pliny (n. 43) and a rare floral book on Antigua by Lydia Byam (n. 37), inter alia.
The section on the History of Science highlights the complete Philosophical Collections (1679 - 82), which were edited by Robert Hooke and presented some of the most important discoveries of the 17th century for the first time (n. 50). Furthermore, there is the first book ever printed with embossed types for the blind, using a technology that predates the Braille alphabet.
The great occultist Aleister Crowley formed a special relationship with John Symonds, his literary executor. We are also proud to present unique Crowley items, including an unpublished drawing from Thelema Abbey of 1921 (n. 113) and the holograph manuscript of The King of the Shadow Realm (n. 110), the biography of Aleister Crowley by Symonds.
Art objects include a very rare, signed and dated, bronze cast of the death mask of Joseph Stalin (n. 115) and a fine contemporary portrait of Charles Dickens, aged about 49 (n. 117).
We hope you will enjoy browsing the history of ideas and experience the many wonders of the past.
