      As far as I am aware, this is the first 1867 in original covers to be offered on this site. The book itself is in excellent condition. The front and rear wrappers are very slightly darkened and with the odd mark as can be seen from the photographs. The wrappers are entirely complete without any chips or loss. There is a small closed tear to the front wrapper which has not resulted in any loss at all. Internally, the book is in fabulous condition for it's age. The pages are clean, original and unmarked. The book has had no restoration whatsoever. It is very rare to find a book of this age in entirely original condition with it's original wrappers. A super copy. We also have fabulous copies for 1864 and 1868 in original wrappers which we hope to list shortly.

Playbill, 9 x 4 inches, Booth's Theatre, 17-18 October [1881]. (Closely trimmed and with a few abrasions affecting some letters, remnants of previous mounting.) Also advertises upcoming performances of the Merchant of Venice and Richard III. A fine collection of scarce ephemera relating to America's most celebrated Shakespearean actor, and brother of Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth. One of three illigitimate sons of the actor John Brutus Booth, Edwin Booth began performing at a young age next to his father. His success was marred by association with his brother, but his career and influence endured until his death in 1893. He ran his own innovative theatre from 1869 to 1874 in New York, succumbing to bankruptcy during the financial panic of the previous year. He afterwards toured the world and regained his fortune. He is best remembered for his record-setting run as Hamlet: to quote William Winter's contemporary review of him in Harper's 1881, it was "the part which has been the chief means of his development, his fortune, his fame, and the genuine, permanent and loving esteem in which he is held by the great body of his countrymen." Booth had first played Hamlet in New York, at Burton's in 1857. Beginning November 16, 1864, and ending March 24, 1865, he played the part at the Winter Garden, for 100 nights, at that time the longest run any Shakespearian play had ever had in America.

        The Pictorial Edition of the Works of Shakspere. Edited by Charles Knight.

      London: Charles Knight and Co., 1867 - 8 volumes, quarto (240 x 162 mm). Contemporary green half morocco, elaborate decoration to spines gilt, raised bands, matching cloth boards, marbled endpapers and edges. Some occasional foxing, spines faded and rubbed, a good set. With numerous engravings. An attractively bound set of Shakespeare's works. The publisher and writer Charles Knight (1791–1873) was already a Shakespeare lover and bibliophile in his teens, when he owned an imperfect First Folio which he made up by printing the missing pages from a facsimile edition. "[H]is first major project as an author took shape in 1837, when he resolved to produce a pictorial edition of Shakespeare's works. He started searching for 'authentic' visual materials and began a critical reading of the texts. His edition was based substantially — indeed, too substantially — on the first folio edition, although he made comparisons with other quartos and, in some cases, with originals in the British Museum. His background reading led to a deep interest in Shakespeare's life and the edition, published between 1838 and 1841 (he published six later editions of the works of Shakespeare), was prefaced with a one-volume biography [actually the biography was issued last, in 1843]. Knight succeeded in contextualizing Shakespeare's life as no biographer except Nathan Drake had done, and in dismissing a couple of the more absurd legends surrounding the playwright's early life" (ODNB).

        TALES OF THE WILD AND THE WONDERFUL ..

      London and Halifax, Yorkshire: Milner and Sowerby, 44, Paternoster Row, 1867.. Small octavo, pp. [i-v] vi [vii-viii] 9-320, inserted frontispiece and engraved title on conjugate leaf, original decorated green cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold and blind, yellow coated endpapers. Expanded edition. Anonymously published collection of five "tales of diablerie" -- novellas, really, in most cases -- whose authorship has been disputed. For years it was thought to be the work of George Borrow, but the preponderance of opinion now leans towards Mary Diana Dods, the illegitimate daughter of a Scottish aristocrat. Writing under a male pseudonym ("David Lyndsay"), Dods contributed to BLACKWOOD'S MAGAZINE and literary annuals and gift books. In letters to BLACKWOOD'S editor, she claimed authorship of the present book. In addition to her masculine pseudonym, Dods affected masculine attire and, with the help of her friend, Mary Shelley, "eloped" to Paris with another woman and lived there as "Mr. and Mrs. Sholto Douglas." With the exception of "Der Freischütz," a translation of a well-known German weird tale by Apel, the stories are original, though generally imbued, as the author acknowledges in the preface, with material borrowed from fairy tales. The material is best seen as a late efflorescence of the Romantic-Gothic movement then waning in England with the recent deaths of Byron, Maturin and Percy Shelley. Dods herself died sometime around 1830. See Betty T. Bennett, Mary Diana Dods, A Gentleman and a Scholar, especially pp. 66-8. This expanded edition, published as part of Milner and Sowerby's "Wide Wide World Library" series, appends two stories, "The Spectre Barber" and "The Sleeping Friar; or the Stone of Father Cuddy," both of which appeared earlier in TRADITIONS AND LEGENDS OF THE ELF, THE FAIRY, AND THE GNOME, n.d. (circa 1830s) and TALES OF FAIRY LAND; OR, LEGENDS OF THE OLDEN TIME ... (1844), neither written by Dods (as near as we can tell). Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 1-82. Block, The English Novel 1740-1850, p. 24 (1825 edition, attributed to George Borrow). Garside, Raven & Schöwerling, 1825: 15 (1825 edition). Wolff 601 (1825 edition). Bleiler (1978), p. 27. Cloth rubbed at edges, some mild stains to cloth along fore-edges, hairline cracks along inner hinges, a very good copy. COPAC reports one copy (Oxford); no copies found on OCLC. Rare. (#153334)

        FRIEDRICHSBURG, DIE COLONIE DES DEUTSCHEN FÜRSTEN-VEREINS IN TEXAS

      Leipzig, 1867. Two volumes bound in one. [12],233,[1]; [6],236,[1]pp. Contemporary three-quarter cloth, spine gilt. Minor shelf wear. Very minor foxing. Two leaves trimmed closely and reinforced at edges, not affecting text. Very good. An authentic account of early German Texas, although cast as a novel set in the German colony at Fredericksburg, Texas, written by Friedrich August Strubberg, who was the director of the settlement in 1846 and 1847. Strubberg (1806-89) was a prolific author wrote many novels set in German Texas. Fredericksburg was settled in 1846 by the Adelsverein, an organization of German noblemen first associated in 1842 for the purposes of acquisition of land in Texas and the support of emigration by German nationals to that land. An important and authentic account, even if fictionalized. GRAFF 4017. HOWES S1088. RADER 2997.

        Nonsensical Rhymes Illustrated (Rummical Rhymes; Ye Comical Rhymes of Ancient Times)

      New York: Hurd and Houghton, 1867. First US edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Square 8vo. 91,(1) unnumbered pages. Printed in red and black throughout with illustrations on every other page in red and black after J. V. Barnett. This is a compilation (and a U.S. pirated edition?) of two of Dean's London publications: "Rummical Rhymes and Pictures", which, according to Arthur Deex, was published in 1862; and " Ye Comical Rhymes of Ancient Times Dug Up into Jokes for Small Folk", 1864. The "Bookselelr" of September 30, 1864, attributed authorship of the verses to Charles Henry Ross; the illustrations are signed in the Dean editions by "JVB"; i.e., J. V. Barnett. His initials have been removed from the American illustrations. Part one is an alphabet book; each letter is somehow part of the illustration as well as the nonsense verse: There was a Young Lady of Cork, Who declining to eat with a Fork, Her Fingers would use, And the feelings abuse, Of the delicate people of Cork. Each letter of the alphabet has its own illustration and verse except I & J and V & U, which are each combined. The second half of the book seems to be a printing of the "Ye Comical Rhymes of Ancient Times", also with a page for the verse, with the red and black illustration facing: Hokee Pokee! Hankee Pankee! I'm the Queen of Swinkee Swankee! And I'm pretty well, I thankee! Publisher's plain purplish cloth, title in gilt on the upper board; pencil ownership name on the front free endpaper; hinges and edges lightly worn with a wear mark on the upper board, some fingering soil to the text pages but a very good to near fine copy and quite scarce: only 3 copies located worldwide; the original Dean's editions are likewise scarce. The date of publication is taken from the "American Literary Gazette" of September 16, 1867, which lists this title as 'recently published'.

        Chronique de Abou-Djafar-Mohammad Ben Djarir Ben Yezid Tabari, traduite sur la version Persane d’Abou-Ali Mohammed Belami d’aprés les manuscrits de Paris, de Gotha, de Londres et de Canterbury par Hermann Zotenberg ( FOUR VOLUMES).

      Imprimerie Imperiale, Paris 1867 - Volume I: [1], VIII, 599 pp. / Volume II: II, 552 pp. / Volume III: 752 pp. / Vol. IV: III, 655 pp; half-titles, contemporary half-calf, title gilt and labeled on raised spine consisting of six compartments, original wrappers preserved, upper edges gilt, marbled endpapers, blindstamps on titles & other leaves, a presentation copy by Mrs. Miles to Bath Public Library as shown in bookplates verso front covers, minor spotting. Set published 1867-1874. Al-Tabari was the first Moslem to have written a general chronicle. He wrote history, theology and Qur'anic commentary. His legal writings were published first and then continued to appear throughout his life. Next were his commentaries on the Qur'an. Lastly, his history was published. Despite a style that makes it seem he drew largely on oral sources, written material (both published and unpublished) provided him with the bulk of his information. This edition is based on a Persian digest of this work, made in 963 by the Samanid scholar al-Bal'ami, translated into French by Hermann Zotenberg. This translation is considered the most celebrated work that Zotenberg conducted during his service at the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris. The biographers of Al Tabari stress his reverence for scholarship and his keen intent to offer his readers hard fact., energy of the creation of the world until the dynasties of its time while passing by prophets, until the Rise of the Prophet in Arabia, and the first Caliphates. This work was written by al-Tabari in Baghdad a few years before his death. It spread quickly throughout the Muslim World and was translated into Turkish and Persian. halfway between poetry and history, with the crossroad of very diverse traditions, this monumental work is an essential reference of Islamic studies, it contains historiographic sources, as well as the life of the Prophet as for the three centuries which followed its death.

Twentieth-century morocco preserving the contemporary red morocco label to spine, spine and boards elaborately decorated in gilt and blind, turn-ins gilt, moire endpapers, edges marbled. Housed in the yellow marbled slipcase. Very infrequent spotting to contents, minor nick to upper edge of sig. 45.1 and 45.2, otherwise in fine condition. Hand written library label to front pastedown, some neat pencil annotations and underlining. Rare first edition of the first volume of Das Kapital, the only one to appear in Marx's lifetime; one of 1,000 copies printed. Two further volumes were published from his manuscripts by Engels, in 1885 and 1894 respectively. The first volume of Das Kapital was published on 14 September 1867 in Hamburg, issued in printed wrappers. "Marx himself modestly described Das Kapital as a continuation of his Zur Kritik de politischen Oekonomie, 1859. It was in fact the summation of his quarter of a century's economic studies, mostly in the Reading Room of the British Museum. The Athenaeum reviewer of the first English translation (1887) later wrote: 'Under the guise of a critical analysis of capital, Karl Marx's work is principally a polemic against capitalists and the capitalist mode of production, and it is this polemical tone which is its chief charm'. The historical-polemical passages, with their formidable documentation from British official sources, have remained memorable; and, as Marx (a chronic furunculosis victim) wrote to Engels while the volume was still in the press, 'I hope the bourgeoisie will remember my carbuncles all the rest of their lives' " "By an odd quirk of history the first foreign translation of Das Kapital to appear was the Russian, which Petersburgers found in their bookshops early in April 1872. Giving his imprimatur, the censor, one Skuratov, had written 'few people in Russia will read it, and still fewer will understand it'. He was wrong: the edition sold out quickly; and in 1880 Marx was writing to his friend F. A. Sorge that 'our success is still greater in Russia, where Kapital is read and appreciated more than anywhere else'" (PMM). "The history of the twentieth century is Marx's legacy. Stalin, Mao, Che, Castro—the icons and monsters of the modern age have all presented themselves as his heirs. Whether he would recognise them as such is quite another matter Nevertheless, within one hundred years of his death half the world's population was ruled by governments that professed Marxism to be their guiding faith. His ideas have transformed the study of economics, history, geography, sociology and literature. Not since Jesus Christ has an obscure pauper inspired such global devotion—or been so calamitously misinterpreted" (Francis Wheen, in his introduction to Karl Marx, 1999).

He was appointed Brevet Major in 1869. “Edwin Stanton was one of the central political figures of the Civil War era and one of the most controversial. His principal role was as chief manager under the president of the Union war effort… and his immense energy and organizational talent made possible the mobilization of the North's vast resources to achieve victory… Stanton's strongest commitment was to preserve the Union, and his tenacious efforts during the early stages of Reconstruction to sustain the army and reverse President Johnson's policy of leniency toward the former Confederates did much to redeem the sacrifices of the war” (ANB). Docketed by the Assistant Adjutant General, E.D. Townsend (with the marginal annotation, in another hand, “Recorded Volume 18, page 278, Adjutant General's Office, April 15, 1867”). With large ornamental vignettes of the American Eagle at top and military flags and regalia at bottom. Embossed paper seal affixed. Fine condition, with only a few minor spots.

        The National Being - Some Thoughts on an Irish Polity. [With an original drawing by Russell on the Titlepage].

      13 cm x 19 cm. 176 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket in protective Mylar. Very good condition. Former library copy with some interesting Patina. Some old newspaper clippings on A.E. taped to the pastetown and endpaper include also a newspaper photograph of the older Russell. The wonderful drawing by A.E. signed in his full name and as A.E. Very Rare ! George William Russell (10 April 1867 17 July 1935) who wrote with the pseudonym Æ (sometimes written AE or A.E.), was an Irish writer, editor, critic, poet, artistic painter and Irish nationalist. He was also a writer on mysticism, and a central figure in the group of devotees of theosophy which met in Dublin for many years. Russell was editor from 1905 to 1923 of the Irish Homestead, the journal of the IAOS. His gifts as a writer and publicist gained him a wide influence in the cause of agricultural co-operation. He then became editor of the The Irish Statesman, the paper of the Irish Dominion League, which merged with the Irish Homestead, from 15 September 1923 until 12 April 1930. With the demise of this newspaper he was for the first time of his adult life without a job, and there were concerns that he could find himself in a state of poverty, as he had never earned very much money from his paintings or books. At one point his son Diarmuid was reduced to selling off early drafts of his father's works to raise money, rather to the annoyance of Russell, who accused Diarmuid, with whom his relations were not good, of "raiding the wastepaper baskets". Unbeknownst to him meetings and collections were organized and later that year at Plunkett House he was presented by Father T. Finlay with a cheque for 800. This enabled him to visit the United States the next year, where he was well received all over the country and his books sold in large numbers. His first book of poems, Homeward: Songs by the Way (1894), established him in what was known as the Irish Literary Revival, where Æ met the young James Joyce in 1902 and introduced him to other Irish literary figures, including William Butler Yeats. He appears as a character with Lizzie Twigg in the "Scylla and Charybdis" episode of Joyce's Ulysses, where he dismisses Stephen's theories on Shakespeare. His collected poems was published in 1913, with a second edition in 1926. His house at 17 Rathgar Avenue in Dublin became a meeting-place[8] at the time for everyone interested in the economic and artistic future of Ireland: his Sunday evenings "at home" were a notable feature of Dublin literary life. Michael Collins, the effective leader of the new Government, became acquainted with Russell in the last months of his life: Oliver St. John Gogarty, a regular guest at Russell's Sundays "at home" believed that these two men, so utterly unalike in most ways, nonetheless developed a deep mutual respect. Russell's generosity and hospitality were legendary: Frank O'Connor fondly recalled "the warmth and kindness, which enfolded you like an old fur coat". He was the most loyal of friends, and in the notoriously fractious Dublin literary world Russell tried to keep the peace between his endlessly quarrelling colleagues: even the abrasive Seamus O'Sullivan could be forgiven a great deal, simply because "Seamus drinks too much". His interests were wide-ranging he became a theosophist and wrote extensively on politics and economics, while continuing to paint and write poetry. Æ claimed to be a clairvoyant, able to view various kinds of spiritual beings, which he illustrated in paintings and drawings. He was noted for his exceptional kindness and generosity towards younger writers: Frank O'Connor termed him "the man who was the father to three generations of Irish writers", and Patrick Kavanagh called him "a great and holy man". P.L. Travers, famous as the creator of Mary Poppins, was yet another writer who gratefully recalled Russell's help and encouragement. He used the pseudonym "AE", or more properly, "Æ". This derived from an earlier Æon signifying the lifelong quest of man, subsequently abbreviated.Russell, who had become increasingly unhappy in the Irish Free State (which according to Yeats he called "a country given over to the Devil"), moved to England soon after his wife's death in 1932. Despite his failing health he went on a final lecture tour in the United States, but returned home utterly exhausted. He died of cancer in Bournemouth in 1935. His body was brought back to Ireland and he had an impressive funeral, which was attended by Éamon de Valera and many other leading figures in Irish life, Catholic as well as Protestant. He is buried in Mount Jerome Cemetery, Dublin. (Wikipedia)

        An Elementary Treatise on Determinants with their application to Simultaneous Linear Equations and Algebraical Geometry.

      Macmillan 1867 - FIRST EDITION, title-page a trifle soiled, pp. viii, 143, 4to, original reddish dark brown cloth by Burn, black (or very dark green) endpapers (as opposed to white, as called for by Williams et al), the front fly-leaf adhering to the paste-down and with a couple of tears, a little worn, short tear at foot of spine, various corrections and additions to the text in an unidentified hand. 'Determinants belong to higher mathematics, and are the sums of the products (of a particular kind) of a square block of quantities. Their condensation, or reduction to simpler forms, facilitates the solution of simultaneous linear equations, and other similar problems.' (Williams, pp.39-40) In his Diaries on February 27th, 1865, Dodgson wrote that he had 'discovered a process for evaluating arithmetical Determinants, by a sort of condensation, and proved it up to 4[2] terms.' His paper on the subject was read to the Royal Society on May 17th, and it appeared in the Proceedings, no.84, 1866. Dodgson continued to work on his paper with a view to publication. This involved a great deal of revision, re-writing, and expansion. He recorded in his Diary that this 'little book . has given me more trouble than anything I have ever written: it is such entirely new ground to explore.' In a letter dated February 11th, 1867, he informed Macmillan, his publisher, that Elements of Determinants (the title was later changed) was near completion, and asked Macmillan's advice about how many he should ask the University Press to print. In his reply of the following day, Macmillan suggested a printing of 750 copies, although the eventual number is not known. It appeared, bound in brown cloth, early in December 1867. The book was well received, but there is no evidence that sales were heavy (see Morton Cohen and Amanda Gandolfo. Lewis Carroll and the House of Macmillan. C.U.P., 1987). Collingwood (The Lives and Letters of Lewis Carroll), with all the uncomprehending scepticism of the non-mathematician, says that the work 'is largely original, and its arrangement and style are, perhaps, as attractive as the nature of the subject will allow.' It is usually thought to be the book which features in the apocryphal story about Queen Victoria, who, having enjoyed Alice, asked to be sent Mr. Dodgson's next book, and was sadly disappointed to receive An Elementary Treatise on Determinants. The MS corrections are fairly substantive, but in a hand quite unlike Dodgson's - except for 5 words in pencil (all the rest in ink) at the end of the first definition -'or an inversion, by Laplace' - which does resemble Dodgson's hand, albeit a little shaky. (Collingwood pp.110, 432: Williams [et al] 57)

      no place: Not published, 1867. 3 page letter written entirely in the hand of the author known as Aunt Fanny. Addressed to another author, Donald Grant Mitchell (1822 - 1908), who wrote under the pseudonym "Ik Marvel." Dated Feb 12th 1867. It reads "Thanks dear Mr Mitchell, for the excellent likeness of my well beloved Ik. Marvel, and the gracious words written beneath the same. It was brought to me by Mr. Humpford, and when he saw how right royally I was pleased, his own good-natured face glowed resplendent, with the consciousness of having done an especially good action. Ik Marvel is a right good fellow. I believe he deserves the wife he possesses, and writing this I have written my best and uttermost. Will you please give the enclosed to my dear darling whose true lover I am. I do not dare to say this to her, but I don't mind you. Your Aunt Tabitha made sentimental confidences to you, and why shouldn't your Aunt Fanny? Pray tell your children, that if ever they forget, or stop loving me, I shall burn my nightcaps, and that would be "awful papers" in these hard times, slang or no slang. Oh! How dare I write that to so refined an author? It is because I am clean past all hope of ever being the like, and so I get as far as possible the other way. My pen knows my desperation. I have admirable thoughts, which like the bees "hastening to the sweet blossoms," come crowding to my pen, but the contrary thing tumbles them upside down upon my paper like a kitten in a fit, and I am left lamenting. One of these days I shall send you my picture, but it will only be a trick to get an autograph letter. Please "make a note" at least of this almost imperceptible hint, and believe me 'wet[?] days + all your admiring + faithful 'Aunt Fanny'." Aunt Fanny letters are quite uncommon. This is a fine example, with a nice association to Mitchell (then 45 years of age).. Signed. First Edition. Unbound. Very good condition. Octavo (8vo).

        Nonsensical Rhymes Illustrated (Rummical Rhymes; Ye Comical Rhymes of Ancient Times)

      New York: Hurd and Houghton, 1867. First US edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Square 8vo. 91,(1) unnumbered pages. Printed in red and black throughout with illustrations on every other page in red and black after J. V. Barnett. This is a compilation (and a U.S. pirated edition?) of two of Dean's London publications: "Rummical Rhymes and Pictures", which, according to Arthur Deex, was published in 1862; and " Ye Comical Rhymes of Ancient Times Dug Up into Jokes for Small Folk", 1864. The "Bookselelr" of September 30, 1864, attributed authorship of the verses to Charles Henry Ross; the illustrations are signed in the Dean editions by "JVB"; i.e., J. V. Barnett. His initials have been removed from the American illustrations. Part one is an alphabet book; each letter is somehow part of the illustration as well as the nonsense verse: There was a Young Lady of Cork, Who declining to eat with a Fork, Her Fingers would use, And the feelings abuse, Of the delicate people of Cork. Each letter of the alphabet has its own illustration and verse except I & J and V & U, which are each combined. The second half of the book seems to be a printing of the "Ye Comical Rhymes of Ancient Times", also with a page for the verse, with the red and black illustration facing: Hokee Pokee! Hankee Pankee! I'm the Queen of Swinkee Swankee! And I'm pretty well, I thankee! Publisher's plain purplish cloth, title in gilt on the upper board; pencil ownership name on the front free endpaper; hinges and edges lightly worn with a wear mark on the upper board, some fingering soil to the text pages but a very good to near fine copy and quite scarce: only 3 copies located worldwide; the original Dean's editions are likewise scarce. The date of publication is taken from the "American Literary Gazette" of September 16, 1867, which lists this title as 'recently published'.
