        BRITISH SPORTS AND PASTIMES

      1868 - 1868. London: Virtue & Co., 1868. Original bright green cloth. First Edition of this collection of eight pieces on outdoor "sports and pastimes" -- namely horse-racing, hunting, shooting (birds), fishing, yachting, rowing, alpine climbing and cricket. All had appeared, between December 1867 and August 1868, in Saint Paul's Magazine, of which Trollope was editor. Trollope himself wrote only the piece "On Hunting" (as well as the Preface for this book); two of the others, "On Rowing" and "On Alpine Climbing," were by Leslie Stephen -- father of Virginia Woolf.~"No other item in Trollopiana appears in so many different clothes without the indication of there having been earlier issues" [Sadleir]; this was due in part to the fact that Virtue & Co. soon went under and its books were bought out by Strahan & Co., which in turn was bought out by Daldy, Isbister & Co. This, however, is a copy from the first issue, with a Virtue & Co. title page dated 1868 and with "Virtue & Co." at the foot of the spine. Condition is very good to near-fine (very slight wear at the extremities, endpapers cracking). Sadleir (TROLLOPE) P4. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      London: Tinsley Brothers, 1868 London: Tinsley Brothers, 1868. First Edition. Three volumes; original publisherâ??s cloth; some cloth wear; spines cocked; occasional page staining and foxing; a good to very good set. This is a presentation copy, inscribed by the author to his sister-in-law, â??Mrs. W. LeFanu from The Author.â? Le Fanu was one of 19th century Irelandâ??s finest authors, largely forgotten until his reputation was revived by M.R. James. Listed in Hubinâ??s Crime Fiction Bibliography, but probably marginal in crime content. A very scarce book, especially in original cloth; presentation copies are notably rare.

I: "Empfangen Sie in aller Eile meinen wärmsten Dank für das werthvolle literarische Geschenk, durch dessen gütige Übersendung Sie mich neuerdings auszeichneten und erfreuten. Gleichzeitig aber kann ich nur aufrichtig bedauern, Ihrem Wunsche nach zwei Karten für die morgige Herrenhaus Sitzung trotz meiner eifrigsten Bemühung nicht nachkommen zu können, da nach Versicherung unseres Präsidialbureaus, wo die Eintrittskarten ausgegeben werden, seit zwei Tagen auch nicht das kleinste Plätzchen mehr verfügbar ist [...]" (Br. v. 18. März 1868; gemäß einer beiliegenden alten Antiquariatsbeschreibung an einen Dr. Jacques). - II: "Seit dem Tage, an welchem Sie und Herr Professor v. Egger mir die Ehre Ihres Besuches und Ihrer für mich so schmeichelhaften Aufforderung erwiesen, war ich von den verschiedensten Dingen so sehr in Anspruch genommen, daß sich bisher noch keine ganz freie und zu poetischen Conceptionen geeignete Stunde einfinden wollte [...] Um nun die Vorbereitungen zu der beabsichtigten Vorstellung für das Walther-Denkmal nicht zu beirren, bin ich zu der rechtzeitigen Anzeige bemüßigt, daß ich die mir freundlichst zugedachte Aufgabe eines Prologs oder dergleichen zu lösen wohl kaum in der Lage sein werde [...]" (Br. v. 20. Januar 1875). - III: "Indem ich auf Ihr so eben erhaltenes, sehr geschätztes Schreiben sowohl im eigenen, wie im Namen meiner Frau den wärmsten und verbindlichsten Dank abstatte, beeile ich mich in deren Auftrage die Versicherung auszusprechen, daß sie, schon um des edlen Zweckes willen, es sich zur besonderen Ehre und Freude rechnen würde, das ihr so freundlich zugedachte Amt einer Lady Patroneß bei dem für den Schriftsteller-Wittwenfonds beabsichtigten Concerte zu übernehmen [...]" (Br. v. 28. November 1875). - Der Brief von Auerspergs Witwe Marie v. 6. März 1877 an einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten mit der Versicherung, "Ihnen jene Werke meines theuren Gatten für Ihre Bibliothek zu senden, welche Sie noch nicht besitzen [...]" (auf Briefpapier mit schwarzem Trauerrand und gepr. kalligr. Monogramm). - Auersperg, unter dem Pseudonym "Anastasius Grün" publizierend, war seit 1848 Abgeordneter im Frankfurter Parlament. "Seit 1830 in kritischer Auseinandersetzung mit dem 'Metternichschen System', veröffentlichte er anonym 'Spaziergänge eines Wiener Poeten', das früheste Dokument politischer Lyrik des österreichischen Vormärz und zugleich Grüns politisches Bekenntnis zu national-liberalen Ansichten" (DBE).

        Five Weeks in a Balloon - Every Saturday

      Boston: Fields & Osgood, 1868. Boston: Fields & Osgood, 1868 Boston: Fields & Osgood, 1868 [hardbound Volume 6, July to December 1868 of the magazine]. Taves & Michaluk V001. 10.25" x 6.75", 828 pp. Ex-Tacoma Public Library; half black calf with marbled paper boards. Quite scuffed, particularly at the corners and hinges. Pages are age toned, some are wrinkled, one page is torn but complete [not a page within the Verne issue]. Strongly bound. Somewhat worn (see scans) but still quite strong, better than Good, just short of very good by reason of one or two too many scuffs. Fascinating and quite rare Jules Verne English-language first/first. Just a few pages buried within this hefty collection of six months of Every Saturday: A Journal of Choice Reading - a Fields & Osgood double-column weekly issue - treat Verne's first novel, Five Weeks in a Balloon. At the time, the magazine editors were apparently of the opinion that Verne [who was then largely unknown to the American public] was describing actual events, rather than fictitious ones, in his tale of African adventures undertaken via the vehicle of a hot-air balloon. Here, in the five pages of this first appearance (see scan of the first one), only certain passages of the novel occur, along with a synopsis by the apparently intrigued editor, who concludes with the line: "All I can say is, that it was shameful of our newspapers, which profess to record everything that passes, to treat this important event with such utter silence." Verne is even mis-identified by the flummoxed staff, who refer to him as "M. Jules Berne." For this title, this piece is exceeded in English-language rarity only by its own softbound variant - i.e., the same piece not bound together in six-monthly tomes such as this, which was the habit of the era, which few have presumably largely perished. Taves & Michaluk at V001 note that "The London" sourcing reference for the Verne article remains unknown. See all scans. L53n

A uniformly bound collection of literary criticism from French politician and author, Marc Girardin. Tenth edition. Within these worksMarc Girardin examines dramatic passions, discussing the mode in which they are treated in ancient and modern drama, poetry and romance.

Condition: In crushed morocco binding with gilt motifs to the front boards, and gilt lettering to the spine. Externally, all are lightly rubbed, with some damp staining to volume one.

        Passages from the American Note-Books of Nathaniel Hawthorne

      London - Smith, Elder and Co., 1868. London - Smith, Elder and Co., 1868 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A Second Edition of Nathaniel Hawthorne's American Note-Books. Bound in cloth withgilt lettering and blindstamped decoration. Second Edition. Hawthorne's American Note-Books were collated by his widow, Sophia Peabody Hawthorne. The works were taken from notebooks, scrapbooks, and diaries left to his family after his death in 1864. Sophia added parts of letters to the journals, and left out parts that may be considered impolite to publish in cases where they referred to living people. Nathaniel Hawthorne, 1804 1864, was an American novelist and short story writer. Hawthorne attended Bowdoin College, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa in 1824, and graduated in 1825. Hawthorne anonymously published his first work, a novel titled Fanshawe, in 1828. He published several short stories in various periodicals which he collected in 1837 as Twice-Told Tales. The Scarlet Letter was published in 1850, followed by a succession of other novels. Much of Hawthorne's writing centres on New England, and many works featuring moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration. His fiction works are considered part of the Romantic Movement and, more specifically, dark romanticism. His themes often centre on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity. His published works include novels, short stories, and a biography of his friend Franklin Pierce. Condition: The binding is generally firm. Pages 99-111 are partially detached. There is slight wear to the extremities, including slight bumping and rubbing. Internally there is slight browning to the page edges and the occasional spot. Overall the condition is very good, excepting the partially detached pages..

      Paris: Delarue, Libraire-editeur, 1868. Description:xcii+480 pages with diagrams, tables, errata, and index of problem composers. Octavo (9" x 5 3/4") rebound with original wrappers bound in. Analysis by Gustav Richard Neumann and Jules Arnous de RivieÌre. Includes numerous chess problem compensations. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:5195) First edition.Paris, the French capital, was host to a world's fair exhibition in the summer of 1867. Among the enormous buildings erected to house new developments in science, technology (of which the Krupp Cannon was the most impressive display), and art, a master chess tournament was organized from June 4th to July 11th. It was held at the Grand Cercle, 10 boulevard Montmartre, not far from the 1.2 kilometer row of machinery for the exhibition. Thirteen chess masters were invited to participate in double rounds, with a time limit of six minutes per move and draws counting as zero for both players. The participants included Ignat Von Kolisch from the Austrio-Hungarian empire, Wilhelm Steinitz and Sam Loyd playing on behalf of the United States of America, Symon Winawer and Hieronim Czarnowski from Poland, Gustav Neumann from Germany, Cecil Valentine De Vere from England, Jules De Riviere, Samuel Rosenthal, Emile D'Andre, and Eugene Rousseau from France, Celso Golmayo Zupide from Cuba, and Martin Severin From from Denmark. There was no formal organization to international events at the time, so beyond the matches and time controls being set, players seemingly encountered one another during the tournament according to availability and inclination. The prize purse was distributed among the top six finishers, with Kolisch earning 5000 Francs for first place, Winawer 2500 Francs for second, Steinitz 2000 Francs for third, Neumann and De Vere 1500 Francs each for fourth and fifth places, and De Riviere 1000 Francs for sixth. The top four finishers also received a Sèvres vase as an additional prize. Kolisch immediately liquidated his antique porcelain and invested in real estate which soon made him an extremely wealthy man, allowing him to be a generous patron to chess for decades afterwards.Condition:Rebound with original wrappers bound and facsimile laid on cover, heavy foxing through out, wrappers corners chipped, notes to half title else about very good.
