Housed in an amazing contemporary custom pull off case with elaborate tooling, commissioned by Chamberlain as was his custom for many of his most fantastic books.

Most interestingly one of a Roswell Foster - a reverend in the Concord/general New England area and a contemporary of Thoreau. A few notes in the book about landmarks would point to Foster's hand or at least someone else with intimate knowledge of the areas Thoreau traversed with his brother.

        Mardi and a Voyage Thither

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1849 Two volumes. First American edition, first printing. Publisher's brown T cloth binding, with the publisher's decorative monogram device surrounded by geometric and floral decorations stamped in blind to the boards, boards triple-ruled in blind, spines with nine rules and decorative compartments stamped in blind, spines lettered in gilt, pale yellow coated endpapers. About near fine, with some minor wear to the extremities, light toning and a hint of soiling to the spines, faint rubbing to the otherwise bright boards, former owner's 1850 inscriptions to the front pastedowns, sturdy bindings without any signs of starting, light spotting to the otherwise clean pages. Overall, a very bright and attractive set, free of any repairs or restoration. BAL 13658. Mardi is Herman Meville's third book and marks a departure from his first two works, Typee (1846) and Omoo (1847), which are more autobiographical in nature. Mardi begins like Melville's preceding novels with a fictional South Seas whaling adventure story, but quickly changes into a more allegorical and experimental text when the main characters abandon their vessel and travel to a variety of fictional, symbolic countries. Melville's use of poetry and song also makes this text unique. While it was heavily criticized upon publication, Mardi is best understood within the greater context of his entire body of writing. Rather than continue to produce variations of his first two successful novels, Melville pushed himself to improve on his own writing, and, while perhaps not fully recognized in Mardi, this laid the groundwork for his later novels, including White-Jacket (1850) and Moby Dick (1851). This first American edition, published April 14, 1849, was preceded only by the three volume first British edition, published on March 16th of the same year.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        "Laugh it off!" and The Manger Song of Mary. Autograph musical manuscripts of two complete songs. Signed in full

      Unrecorded and presumably unpublished. The texts are by Henry Rutherford Elliot (1849-1906), a journalist in New York, and Edwin Markham (1852-1940), an American poet. "Laugh it off!" is a humorous song in a popular style; The Manger Song of Mary is a lullaby in a more sophisticated style. The correspondence suggests that both of Vidal's songs were slated for publication by Hinds, Hayden & Eldredge in 1923; the scribal copies were most likely intended as engraver's copies. One of the poets (Elliot), however, was no longer alive; there are no materials in the present collection mentioning his heirs. In any case, the SACEM forms (also Markham's) remained unsigned. The publication stalled, and the songs were apparently never published. A French conductor, teacher and composer, " Vidal is particularly remembered as a fine teacher who was sympathetic to new ideas. At the Paris Conservatoire he taught classes in solfège (from 1894), piano accompaniment (from 1896) and composition (from 1909)... Vidal';s most successful compositions were the ballet La maladetta (1893), which had been performed nearly 200 times by 1930, and the light opera Eros." David Charlton in Grove Music Online. Mabel Montgomery Tuttle (born Mabel Chauvenet Holden, 1873-after 1921) studied piano with Theodor Leschetizky and Teresa Carreño.. - "Laugh it off!": Oblong octavo (272 x 176 mm). Bifolium. Notated in black ink on 10-stave paper with blindstamp of Lard-Esnault, Bellamy, Paris. [i] (title with signature and date: October 16-23, 1921), 2, [i] (blank) pp. In 5-stave systems: one for solo voice ("Mezzo Soprano o[u] Baryton"), one for chorus (up to 4 parts but no voices specified; G clef throughout), one blank, and two for piano ("ad libitum"). Part labels and tempo in French; titling and text underlay (2 strophes) in English. Text credited to Henry Rutherford Eliot [!Elliot]. Dedication: "To the dearest friend Walter Damrosch." - The Manger Song of Mary: Oblong octavo (272 x 176 mm). Bifolium.
