Dante Alighieri | Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Translator)
Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1867. First American Edition, First Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good binding. Quarto. "In order to 'get' Dante, a translator has to be both a poet and a scholar, attuned to the poet's vertiginous literary experimentalism as well as his superhuman grasp of cultural and intellectual history. This is why one of the few truly successful English translations comes from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, a professor of Italian at Harvard and an acclaimed poet." Longfellow's work has long been considered the best and most faithful translation of the Divine Comedy. Volume I is a First Printing; Volume II is a First Printing; the priority of Volume III has not been determined, however we have BAL's Variant A. With all points of a First Printing called for by the BAL: Vol. I, p. 223, note 116 reads "di quegli antichi spiriti." Vol. II, p. 350, note 32 reads "it will be noted that Dante." Leaf pasted under the endpaper of Volume II, and two blank flyleaves. Variant A of Volume III, with the 'H' set beneath the first 'c' in 'according' on the copyright page; priority unknown. A clean copy with no marks of any kind. Publisher's green cloth binding with lettering in gilt on the front board and spine; beveled edges. (BAL 5 12146. The American Scholar, Joseph Luzzi, "How to Read Dante in the 21st Century"). Very Good binding.

Dewey, Dellon Marcus: [Rochester Nursery Specimen Book]
Rochester, N.Y.: D.M. Dewey, 1867. Sixty-two pochoir or chromolithograph plates, plus chromolithograph titlepage, and [8]pp. of advertisements. Quarto. Original half calf and cloth, front cover gilt. Boards moderately stained, rubbed, and edgeworn. Scattered foxing and minor soiling to plates. Good. A nice, early example of a Rochester nursery specimen book with sixty- two pochoir or chromolithograph plates, produced by the father of the city's mid- to late-19th-century cottage industry, D.M. Dewey. He was among the first of the Rochester nurserymen to produce elaborate plates depicting fruit and flower types for sale by dealers. Albums were generally made up specially for individual firms, though the present album does not have the name of any firm stamped on the front cover. The plates were produced by colored stencil or pochoir work and are particularly beautiful. As Charles Van Ravenswaay noted, they are "more akin to folk painting than to the commercial art of their time." The plates collected here are devoted to the depiction of various fruits, principally apples, pears, cherries, peaches and grapes. Chief among the flowers are lovely roses, while the trees are highlighted by mountain ash, Irish juniper, spruce, pine, and the lovely Kilmarnock Willow. Albums such as this are quite scarce, especially with as many plates as this example and in such large format. The Oak Spring Garden Library collection has a Dewey album of circa 1866, on a similar format but with only thirty-eight plates. Oak Spring also has another Dewey album of a later date on a smaller form … [Click Below for Full Description]

Walt Whitman
New York: William E. Chapin, 1867. Condition: Very Good binding. The Fourth Edition, presumed Second Issue, of Leaves of Grass with all of the points according to Myerson. Bound in half black leather with red, orange, blue, and white nonpareil (or combed) marbled paper covered sides. The spine has double rules and the title, blindstamped and goldstamped respectively, and is still in very presentable condition. Discreet repair to the top of the spine effecting the uppermost double rule. The contents page incorrectly lists Drum-Taps in addition to Leaves of Grass and "Songs Before Parting", as called for by Myerson. The copy was lacking its front free endpaper, and a sympathetic period endsheet has been archivally hinged in. All edges trimmed and marbled with the same pattern as the paper-covered boards. There is minor wear to the edges of the binding, as well as some rubbing to the marbled paper boards. A section of loss to the front pastedown has been patched with japanese tissue. The title page has a contemporary gift inscription. (BAL 21399Myerson A 2.4.a).

For sale is an unprecedented Mark Twain first edition collection. All 54 of the books in this Mark Twain set are first editions, first printings, and first issues. There is one book signed by Mark Twain, "The Innocents Abroad", a signed limited edition bound in leather, of which only 512 copies were made. Other highlights include: "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" Twain's very first book published in 1867, one of only 1,000 copies; "The Gilded Age" published in 1873, this being the only copy with all first issue points currently available online; "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" published in 1876, the first UK edition which preceded the American publication by six months; "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" published in 1885; "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" published in 1889, a rare copy with all 3 first issue points present; and "Tom Sawyer Abroad; Tom Sawyer, Detective and Other Stories" published in 1896, one of only 1,000 copies of the first edition. Determining whether a Mark Twain book is a first edition, is a very difficult and tedious process. Many books had to be returned because just one of the ten first issue points were lacking. Listed below are the complete details of the 54 books included in the collection. The terms first issue and first state are used interchangeably. BAL is the acronym for Bibliography of American Literature, the most important reference guide for determining Mark Twain first editions. All of the books contain all of the additional first issue points not included in BAL, but discovered in later scholarship. 1.) … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lewis Carroll
Macmillan and Company. Very good second edition (sixth thousand) of ALICE, London 1867. Signed by Ray Bradbury. Unique. This copy was signed by Ray Bradbury. 1867 second edition, sixth thousand, the only ever signed by him. Alice's Adventures In Wonderland (Sixth Thousand, or, the second English edition) by Lewis Carroll Illustrated by Sir John Tenniel London: Macmillan and Co., 1867 Signed by Ray Bradbury on the front free endpaper. This book is a second printing of the English edition and is stated "Sixth Thousand" with the date 1867 on the title page. A very early printing of the World's most famous childrens' book. Interior pages are very good. Boards are 7.25" x 5.0" inches, 192 pages.
On the last page there are some small pencil words, four of them, which are obscure so I left them there. No ads or other pages follow the last free endpaper after page 192.
The book retains the rare original tissue guard with some foxing, and the interior is very good with only light soiling to the pages and general aging, but very good for paper from a popular children's book from 1867. There is a small closed tear to the bottom edge of page 69, about one-half inch. The original slate blue endpapers that were originally issued with this copy were replaced long ago by someone with yellow endpapers as shown. Or perhaps the original endpapers were yellow originally, I am seeing some variations of black and slate gray on these books. The endpapers definitely are old. The page edges apparently? were trimmed down slightly by someone long ago; the gilt on the page edges are not gilt. (Or, per … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bellew, Henry Walter
London Thacker & Co. First editions. Two works bound as one. Small 4to, 25 x 20 cm; pp.xi, 355. [1, blank]; [iii]-xii, 155, [1, errata]. Text in English and Pashto. A very good copy bound in modern half calf over marbled boards, earlier lettering-pieces retained; second work bound without half-title. Title-pages with ownership inscriptions of Loudon MacPherson, the first dated "7/3/75". This English-Pashto and Pashto-English dictionary of over 9,000 entries remained in use for a century. Bellew's emphasis was on the colloquial form of the language. He excluded words of Arabic and Persian origin that were used unaltered in Pashto "since their use is almost solely confined to literary works or to discussions on theological subjects." The present copy is bound with his accompanying grammar of the same year. Henry Walter Bellew (1834-1892), born at Nusserabad, undertook his medical training in London, was admitted to the Royal College of Surgeons, and served initially in the Crimea. He was appointed to the Bengal medical service in 1855, reaching India in 1856, made surgeon in 1867, and deputy surgeon-general in 1881. His service was noticeable for his experience in Afghanistan and on the borders; he was particularly noted for his knowledge of the language and customs of the frontier peoples. Hardship suffered at the 1879 Siege of Sherpur during the Second Anglo-Afghan War compelled him to retire and return to Britain in 1886. Amongst his other works were various titles on the Afghans, and a history of cholera in India. [Attributes: First Edition]

WINSTON, Charles; DELAMOTTE, Philip H. (illus.)
Oxford and London: James Parker and Co, 1867. Second Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 2 vols.: xxiv, 422, [1]; 23 p. + plates. 23 cm. 28 b&w in-text figures in vol. I. Vol. II has colour frontispiece and 75 plates, most sepia. Half burgundy leather with paper boards. Corners and edges a little worn. Small bookseller's labels on front pastedowns. Some foxing to first and last pages. Charles Winston (1814–1864) was the leading 19th-century authority on glass-painting. The numerous tracings which he made of interesting ancient glass reproduced both the design and the colouring of the originals. Towards the end of his life he became more interested in the scientific side of his subject; he made numerous elaborate chemical experiments with the assistance of his friend Charles Harwood Clarke which led to improvement in the manufacture of coloured glass. Winston also claimed to have discovered the secret of the medieval processes but was at the same time strongly opposed to servile imitation of medieval models. To illustrate this work, he chose Philip Henry Delamotte (1821–1889), the British photographer and illustrator best remembered for his photographic images of the Crystal Palace in 1854.

MACDONALD, George
Alexander Strahan, London, 1867. 105 x 141mm publisher's blue cloth with black and gilt stamped decorations and titles to the front and spine and black stamped decoration to the rear. All edges gilt, brown endpapers, (x), 308pp, (4) author and publisher's works. With 12 black and white full page illustrations including tissue-guarded frontispiece. This notoriously delicate book has been expertly rebacked and recased with the original spine laid down and the original endpapers retained ensuring that the binding is firm. There is some rubbing and light marking to the boards commensurate with age, with the cloth just worn through on the corners. Internally, the endpapers are a little marked, with a pencil name to the rear pastedown, minor loss to the corners of the front free and paper and a tiny bookseller's ticket on the front pastedown. There is a neat ownership name on the half title and light foxing to the preliminaries and first couple of pages. The tissue guard is a little foxed and has a little loss to the corners. The main body of the book is very clean however. All in all a lovely copy of this very scarce collection of invented fairy tales by this extremely influential Scottish writer who is regarded as one of the founding fathers of modern fantasy whose influence can be seen in the works of Tolkein, C. S. Lewis and E. Nesbit amongst others; " I write, not for children but for the child-like, whether they be five, or fifty, or seventy-five."
