        A Collection of Memorial Cards

      Various. Various: Various c. 100 memorial cards, including three framed and glazed, dated mainly between 1860 and 1910. Designs include several embossed 'pierced lace' designs, through to later printed and chromolithographic cards. Included amongst many others is a remembrance card for Prince Albert (1861), a funeral ticket for the Duchess of Norfolk (1877) and an attractive folding card in its original black bordered envelope (1907). "The memorial card relied for much of its appeal on the austere extravagance of blind embossing. The process produced an uncoloured relief image of some delicacy ... exploited here for its portrayal of sepultural and monumental images. Tombs, funerary urns, angels and mourning figures appeared as though in marble low-relief ... Embossed cards were also available as pierced 'lace' designs, the low-relief effect being enhanced by removal of the background ... In a further elaboration, cards might be mounted on larger 'frame' cards. These were similarly treated with low-relief and lace effect and were designed to be mounted on a black background for glazing and framing ... In the final decades of the 19th century and on into the 20th century the most common form of mourning card was chromolithographed (usually in a range of grey or sepia colours and with a black border) for overprinting by the local printer" (Rickards - The Encyclopedia of Ephemera, page 157). First Edition. Disbound. Very Good. Memorial Card.

        The Conduct of Life

      Boston: Ticknor & Fields, 1860. Boston: Ticknor & Fields, 1860. First Edition. BAL 5237; first printing; variant a; publisher?s cloth; spine ends chipped; some fraying; a very good copy. In a custom quarter-morocco clamshell box. An exceptional presentation copy; inscribed by the author on the half-title, ?F.B. Sanborn - From the Author. Nov. 7 1860.? Of the copies noted by the Bibliography of American Literature, none was inscribed earlier than mid-December, 1860, and most were presented in January, 1861. As a young man, the New Hampshire born Sanborn sought out the famous Emerson, and while at Harvard became a schoolmaster in Concord, teaching young Emersons, Alcotts, Hawthornes, and others. He was a fervent abolitionist and a key supporter of John Brown (one of ?The Secret Six?), who never lost his devotion to Brown, his family, and their cause. This book was inscribed the day after Lincoln?s election. Sanborn lived to 1917, the last survivor of Concord?s golden age, having enjoyed a successful career as an educator, reformer and literary man.

Light waterstaining in upper and lower corners and outer margin, old marginal trim to title page, otherwise a beautiful copy.& & THE VERY RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST ANNUAL BASEBALL GUIDE. BY THE FATHER OF BASEBAL, HENRY CHADWICK—HIS PERSONAL COPY.& & SIGNED “HENRY CHADWICK / CLIPPER OFFICE” ON FRONT FLYLEAF. With letter of authenticity, dated October 14, 1925, by John T. Doyle, President, American Sports Publishing Company, publisher of Spalding sport guides, who was a friend and colleague of Chadwick. In 1858 Chadwick became the first baseball editor of a newspaper, which he held at the New York Clipper. Hence, the inscription “Clipper Office” accompanying his signature.& & RULES OF THE GAME WHICH APPEAR IN THIS 1860 GUIDE:& • The ball must be pitched, not jerked or thrown to the bat.& • The striker is out after swinging and missing three balls if the behind catches the third strike on the fly or first bounce.& • If three balls are struck at, and missed, and the last one is not caught, either flying or upon the first bound, it shall be considered fair, and the striker must attempt to make his run.& • The striker is out if a fair ball is struck, and the ball is caught either without having touched the ground, or upon the first bound.& • If an adversary stops a ball with his hat or cap, or takes it from the hands of a party not engaged in the game, no player can be put out unless the ball shall first have settled in the hands of the pitcher.& & • Clubs may adopt such rules respecting balls knocked beyond or outside of bounds of the field, as circumstances of the ground may demand; and these rules shall govern all matches played upon the ground, provided that they are distinctly made known to every player and umpire, previous to the commencement of the game.& • The player is out if the ball is in the hands of a base tender before the runner steps on the base.& • If two ballists are already out, no player running home at the time the ball is struck can make ace if the striker is put out.& • The hurler must deliver the ball as near as possible over the center of home for the striker.& • Foul balls do not count as strikes.& • Any ball first touching the ground or touched by a player within the base lines is fair, even if it goes foul thereafter.& • An ace shall be tallied when a base runner steps on the home base.& • No person engaged in a match, either as umpire, scorer or player shall be, either directly or indirectly, interested in any bet upon the game.& & HISTORY OF BEADLE’S GUIDES: Beadle’s is the earliest set of baseball guides, published annually from 1860 to 1881. Chadwick was its editor. It ceased publication in 1881 when Chadwick became the editor of the Spalding Guide. The annual circulation was said to number 50,000 copies! The 1860 Beadle guide literally transformed baseball into a spectator sport as it was the first guide book published for and available to the general public (preceded only by an 1859 baseball player’s pocket companion for the players) and virtually launched the Baseball Press. & & WHO WAS HENRY CHADWICK: An avid promoter of Baseball throughout his life, Henry Chadwick (1824–1908) became the game's chief journalistic voice and its moral conscience during the game's early years. He coined the phrase “in the best interests of baseball” as he attacked drinking among players, gambling, and the “throwing” of games (He actually even opposed playing games on Sunday!). Chadwick arrived in America in 1837 and clearly saw baseball as an evolution of the “rounders” game in his native England. He made baseball the American pastime, authoring the sport’s first rule book, devising batting averages and inventing box scores, earned run averages, and the scoring system in use to this very day. Chadwick was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1938.& & RARITY OF OUR EDITION:& For the baseball world this very copy of this book is equivalent to Gutenberg’s personal copy of his first printed Bible, or Thomas Jefferson’s personal copy of the first printed copy of the Declaration of Independence. For the baseball world this very copy of this book is represents a unique opportunity for the astute and adventuresome collector to come closest to the true first fan of the game, who, more than anyone else can be credited with transforming baseball into the cultural and historic phenomena it has become as America’s National pastime. There are only 3 other known copies of this book; this is the ONLY copy that is signed.&

He coined the phrase “in the best interests of baseball” as he attacked drinking among players, gambling, and the “throwing” of games (He actually even opposed playing games on Sunday!). Chadwick arrived in America in 1837 and clearly saw baseball as an evolution of the “rounders” game in his native England. He made baseball the American pastime, authoring the sport’s first rule book, devising batting averages and inventing box scores, earned run averages, and the scoring system in use to this very day. Chadwick was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1938. RARITY OF OUR EDITION: For the baseball world this very copy of this book is equivalent to Gutenberg’s personal copy of his first printed Bible, or Thomas Jefferson’s personal copy of the first printed copy of the Declaration of Independence. For the baseball world this very copy of this book is represents a unique opportunity for the astute and adventuresome collector to come closest to the true first fan of the game, who, more than anyone else can be credited with transforming baseball into the cultural and historic phenomena it has become as America’s National pastime. There are only 3 other known copies of this book; this is the ONLY copy that is signed.

        Oeuvres de Jean Racine

      Paris - Ancienne Librairie Furne, 1860. Paris - Ancienne Librairie Furne, 1860 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The complete dramatic works of French playwright, Jean Racine. In French. Jean Racine (22 December 1639 21 April 1699), was a French dramatist, one of the three great playwrights of 17th-century France (along with Moliere and Corneille), and an important literary figure in the Western tradition. Racine was primarily a tragedian, producing such 'examples of neoclassical perfection' as Phedre, Andromaque, and Athalie, although he did write one comedy, Les Plaideurs, and a muted tragedy, Esther, for the young. Racine's plays displayed his mastery of the dodecasyllabic alexandrine; his verse is renowned for elegance, purity, speed, and fury, and for what Robert Lowell described as a 'diamond-edge', and the 'glory of its hard, electric rage'. Racine's works are widely considered to be untranslatable, although many eminent poets have attempted to do so. Louis-Simon Auger (29 December 1772 in Paris - 2 January 1829 in Paris) was a French journalist, literary critic and playwright. With a portrait of the author to frontispiece, and one further plate toillustrate each of the 12 plays. With numerous signatures to front blank and two more to verso of front free endpaper. Condition: In a half morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally, sound with slight wear to extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Many pages are unopened.
