        THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BREAKFAST-TABLE

      [HOLMES, Oliver Wendell]. THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BREAKFAST-TABLE. Boston: Phillips, Sampson And Co., 1859. 8vo., black full-morocco leather; gilted-worked spine, inner dentelles, and borders; top edge gilt; marbled endpapers. Large Paper Edition. Holmes was apparently displeased with the illustrations in the first trade edition and ordered them excised from this printing. [See BAL 9093]. Signed presentation from Holmes, to poet and journalist John G. Saxe, on front endpaper: "John G. Saxe, from O.W. Holmes." Holmes apparently used this edition for gifts and copies have been noted inscribed to Ralph Waldo Emerson, his family members, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and his wife. Saxe [1816-1887] was admitted to the Vermont bar in 1843 and, due to his interest in literature, he purchase the "Vermont Sentinel" in 1850. He served as state attorney general and was twice the unsuccessful Democratic nominee for governor. Saxe's verses appeared in many of the major magazines of the day and he wrote a number of books. A nice association copy. Holmes' rambling Addisonian essays describe imaginary table-talk at a Boston boarding house. Their success led to three other books in the series: The Professor At The Breakfast-Table (1860); The Poet At The Breakfast-Table (1872); and Over The Teacups (1891). Nr. fine. $1,500.00.

        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection,

      London: John Murray,, 1859. or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Octavo (191 × 117 mm). Contemporary green half calf, maroon label, gilt bands, marbled sides and edges, pale red endpapers. Housed in a dark green quarter morocco solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. Folding lithographed diagram. Without adverts. Bookplate. Spine gently sunned, inscription just shaved by the binder, an excellent copy. First edition, presentation copy, to Edward William Vernon Harcourt, inscribed by the recipient at the head of the title, "E. W. Harcourt, from the Author, 1859" and with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Presentation copies of the Origin are rare, and no copy is known to have been inscribed by Darwin himself. Darwin had written to the naturalist Harcourt (1825?-1891) on 19 August 1856 asking to borrow his copy of Christian Ludwig Brehm's work on German ornithology, as he wanted "to see how far Brehm goes in splitting species". Earlier in the year they had corresponded about Madeiran birds, on which Harcourt was an expert: Harcourt is cited as a source of information on the subject on p. 391 of the Origin. Before publication of the Origin, Darwin wrote to Murray with an initial list of those he wished to receive presentation copies: the list contains 23 names, and available evidence suggests that all those copies were inscribed by one of Murray's clerks. Harcourt is not among that list; he may have been overlooked and sent a copy a little later, though still in the year of publication. The inscription on the title is in his hand, rather than that of Murray's clerk.

        Sully Prudhomme's Calling Card with an Autograph Note Signed to Jean Finot

      Châtenay-Malabry: Sully Prudhomme, 190_. First edition. [No Binding]. Fine. An Original Sully Prudhomme Calling Card upon which Sully Prudhomme as written an EIGHT-LINE NOTE, DATED AND SIGNED. In this note sent from Châtenay-Malabry [the famous southeastern Paris suburb where Sully Prudhomme lived and where many other literary persons and notable persons in multiple disciplines --- such as Henri de Latouche, François-René (Vicomte de Chateaubriand), Emmanuel Mournier, Paul Ricoeur, and others --- made their home], Sully Prudhomme writes to advise the recipient of his address and to confirm with him a gathering with French poet, Philippe Dufour (1859-1935). Prudhomme also reminds the recipient to bring his latest work with him to the meeting. Philippe Dufour was a member of the so-called Parnassian group and also served as an official of the national Ministry of Public Works. [Parnassianism is a literary style in which the writer strove to produce exact and faultless workmanship using exotic and classical subjects which they treated with rigidity of form and emotional detachment.] The note is addressed to Jean Finot, the French Author, Journalist, and Sociologist known primarily for his opposition to scientific racism. Sully Prudhomme won the 1901 Nobel Prize in Literature "in special recognition of his poetic composition, which gives evidence of lofty idealism, artistic perfection and a rare combination of the qualities of both heart and intellect", making him the first person ever to win the Prize. In Fine condition, the note provides an excellent glimpse into the life of three noted French literary men of the era. AN EXCELLENT AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED BY SULLY PRUDHOMME WITH STRONG LITERARY ASSOCIATIONS.

        Autograph Note Signed on "Office of All the Year Round A Weekly Journal Conducted by Charles Dickens" " stationery, large 12mo, London, Jan. 20, 1864

      To Marcus Stone, the illustrator of many of Dickens' works, asking if he can "call here tomorrow? Between 10 and 12?" He signs with initials, "CD." Slight break at margin center fold. With carte-de visite size albumen print photograph showing Dickens, full length seated in an ornate chair. Marcus Stone was a painter and illustrator, the son of the artist Frank Stone. Marcus was the illustrator of, among other Dickens' works, Our Mutual Friend. In 1859, Dickens recommended Marcus Stone to Dickens' publishers for a commission for the frontispieces for the cheap editions of "Little Dorritt "and "A Tale of Two Cities "as well as other volumes in the wake of Dickens having dismissed "Phiz" as his official illustrator. Marcus was, according to Philip V. Allingham, contributing editor of Victorian Web (victorianweb.org), "virtually Dickens's adopted son after Frank Stone's death in 1859, staying a month each year at Gad's Hill...." The Morgan Library holds a collection of 32 letters from Dickens to Stone, from February 14, 1864 to September 2, 1865, all related to Marcus Stone's illustrations for Our Mutual Friend, the first installment of which was published in May of 1864. This letter, though slightly earlier, is no doubt suggesting that Stone visit Dickens to discuss this same book. This is further verified by Dr. Sean C. Grass in his Charles Dickens's "Our Mutual Friend: A Publishing History." Dr. Grass states, "But the easy routine of Dickens's correspondence with Stone underscores nevertheless just how difficult and complex his activities were as he worked through the monthly installments of "Our Mutual Friend." At virtually all times from January 1864 to September 1865, besides reviewing Stone's illustrations, Dickens usually was drafting one installment, correcting initial proofs of another, and working through a combination of intermediate and final proofs for one or even two more." Grass continues further by pointing out that all the while Dickens was also working on various issues of All the Year Round. Dickens had worked as a reporter and then editor before he found his success writing novels. He started the weekly magazine, "Master Humphrey's Clock," as a general interest publication, but it failed after a year. However, the magazine succeeded in serializing Dicken's novel, "The Old Curiosity Shop." In 1850, Dickens co-founded the weekly magazine for which he is perhaps best known, "Household Words," and after almost a decade of publication, he replaced it with his last weekly, "All The Year Round." Here he published his great novels, "A Tale of Two Cities," and "Great Expectations." "All the Year Round" began in 1859 and continued until 1895 under the editorship of Dickens eldest son after Dickens' death in 1870. The magazine's title is derived from Shakespeare, "The story of our lives, from year to year," and the quote appears on the journal's decorative cover page.
