MacDonald, George
New York: George Routledge & Sons, 1871. Very good plus.. Original blue cloth stamped in gold and black. All edges gilt. Illustrated by Arthur Hughes with many detailed line illustrations throughout the text. 378 pages. Chip at head of spine, binding lightly rubbed with slight lean and corner bump, really a nice bright copy. First US edition, printed from British sheets but with cancel title page with the same date, this is one of a few copies sent to the US to secure copyright. The story was serialized beginning in 1868 in a children's magazine GOOD WORDS FOR THE YOUNG. A fantasy adventure about a young boy named Diamond who flies to another country on the back of the lady North Wind, this book would be an important influence on the likes of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. A masterpiece of children's fantasy literature.

Eliot, George
Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1871 Eight volumes. First edition, first printing. Modern navy cloth with gilt lettering and ruling to spine. An excellent set, bound with the half-titles, former owner inscription to first blank, some very faint spotting, else fine. Overall, a bright and clean set. Middlemarch is the seventh novel by Mary Anne Evans, a top writer of the Victorian Era who chose to write under a male pseudonym so that her works would be taken more seriously. In addition to writing novels, she edited and contributed to the left-wing journal The Westminster Review as one of the only female editors of her time. Her novels were praised for being socially and politically conscious and for their realistic depictions of country life. Set in the fictional town Midlands in Middlemarch (thought to be based on Coventry) in the early 19th century, Middlemarch tells the interwoven stories of three couples' marriages, which are unhappy for a range of romantic and financial reasons. Throughout the text, Eliot references contemporary political events, including the death of George IV, the Reform Act of 1832, and the Industrial Revolution. The novel is divided into eight parts, reflecting its initial serial publication; Volume I contains "Miss Brooke" and "Old and Young," Volume II has "Waiting for Death" and "Three Love Problems," Volume III has "The Dead Hand" and "The Widow and the Wife," and Volume IV contains "Two Temptations" and "Sunset and Sunrise." Middlemarch is widely considered Eliot's masterpiece; when she was asked her opinion on the novel, her … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scott, Sir Walter
Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black, 1871. Centenary Edition. Twenty-five small octavo volumes (7 3/16 x 4 3/4 inches; 182 x 121 mm). Illustrated with twenty- five engraved frontispieces and vignette title-pages. Bound ca. 1871 in full contemporary tan calf, covers double-ruled in gilt. Spines with five raised bands, decoratively tooled in gilt in compartments, with red and green morocco gilt lettering labels, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled. Auction lot sticker on front board of Volume 7. Gilt on spines a little dull, still a VG+ set in a contemporary binding. "Scott's influence as a novelist was incalculable; he established the form of the historical novel, and, according to V.S. Pritchett, the form of the short story. He was avidly read and imitated throughout the 19th century, not only by historical novelists such as Ainsworth and Bulwer-Lytton, but also by writers like Mrs. Gaskell, G. Eliot, the Brontës, and many others, who treated rural themes, contemporary peasant life, regional speech, etc., in a manner that owed much to Scott. His reputation gradually declined (though his medieval and Tudor romances retained a popular readership) until there was a revival of interest...in the 1930s...In 1951 three seminal essays were published...these heralded a considerable upsurge of scholarly activity and reappraisal, most of which concurs in regarding the Scottish 'Waverley' novels as his masterpieces" (Oxford Companion to English Literature).

First edition, fourth printing (eighth thousand), printed December 1871 (same year as the first printing), 16 page catalogue at rear of volume II dated September 1871 . Original publisher's green cloth, spines lettered in gilt. Some moderate wear and rubbing to the extremities, hinges cracked and holding, former owner bookplates to front pastedowns, else very good. Freeman 959. First published in 1871, The Descent of Man expands upon the theories of selection and evolution proposed in Darwin's earlier work, On the Origin of Species (1859). In Descent, Darwin puts forth a new theory of sexual selection, explaining how it differs from and works alongside natural selection. Notably, the first edition of Descent marks the first appearance of the word "evolution" in Darwin's writing. This volume discusses how evolutionary processes apply to humankind, drawing in concepts from evolutionary psychology and ideas of differing characteristics of anthropologically defined races of people. This work had huge implications for the history of humankind and was met with mixed responses from a society in which conservative religious beliefs could be at odds with scientific advancement. Indeed, in this second edition, Darwin mentions in his preface that there is a "fiery ordeal through which this book has passed," in which he refers to his critics, both scientific and non-scientific, who discounted his ideas.

Huxley, Thomas Henry
1871. Huxley, Thomas Henry (1825-95). Autograph letter signed to an unidentified correspondent ("Dear Madam"). 4pp. (bifolium). [London], 20 January 1871. 181 x 112 mm. Minor foxing, remains of mount present (partly obscuring last letter of Huxley's large and bold signature). Very good. Huxley's bitingly humorous response to an autograph seeker: "Dear Madam, I venture to address you in this way because men never ask for autographs which have no legal value. It is an awkward task which has been set me-that is writing to a lady whom I have not the honour to know, about nothing-And, having succeeded thus far, I think I cannot take any path more wise, prudent and indeed, I may say, statesmanlike, than that of immediately subscribing myself, with all that respect one has for the unknown (and possibly unknowable but not in Mr. Spencer's sense), your obedient servant, Thomas H. Huxley." The signature is unusually large and bold. The letter's last sentence includes a sly dig at Herbert Spencer's doctrine of "the Unknowable," a term Spencer used to refer to the "absolute reality" underlying all phenomena in the universe. Both Spencer and Huxley were agnostics, but Huxley rejected religious faith completely while Spencer sought to reconcile religious belief with science.

[Hooker, Isabella Beecher]
Hartford: Press of Case, Lockwood & Brainard, 1871. First edition. Near Fine. Tracts of the Connecticut Woman Suffrage Association No. 2. Original printed self-wraps stitched at spine. 24 pages. Toning to front wrap; light chipping to outer edge of rear wrap and a small split at lower joint holding well. Signed in type on the rear by Isabella Beecher Hooker, in her capacity as chair. A critical organ of this influential state organization, the present Annual Meeting and Executive Report reports on what was only the group's second meeting after its founding one year before. The only copy on the market, this pamphlet is also scarce institutionally, with OCLC reporting 8 known copies. Nationally, 1870-1871 were landmark years for the women's movement because of both the successes and failures it encountered. Suffragists faced major disappointment in the 15th Amendment; for while it widened the franchise to include freedmen, it did not address women's voting. At the same time, in the territories, women's rights were expanding; and Utah Territory became the first to grant suffrage to women. The National Woman Suffrage Association continued to operate as a unifying agent for the suffrage message, but it also recognized that it could only accomplish its mission through grassroots work at the regional and state levels. Only by getting state suffrage and by gaining Congressmen's support could an Amendment be presented and ratified. During this same period, Isabella Beecher Hooker and Frances Ellen Burr founded the Connecticut Woman Suffrage Association. Much like the NWSA, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: Imprimerie nationale, 1871. Fine. Imprimerie nationale, Paris avril 1871, 51,6x79,5cm, une feuille. - 44006 - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Affiche originale de la Commune de Paris, en très bonne condition de conservation en dépit de traces de pliures, condamnant l'attaque des royalistes ""les chouans de Charette, les Vendéens de Cathelineau, les Bretons de Trochu, flanqués des gendarmes de Valentin [qui] ont couvert de mitraille et d'obus le village inoffensif de Neuilly et engagé la guerre civile avec [les] gardes nationaux"". L'affiche, d'une typographie tout à fait éloquente, s'achève sur cette tonitruante déclaration : ""Elus par la population de Paris, notre devoir est de défendre la grande cité contre ces coupables agresseurs. Avec votre aide, nous la défendrons."" ""Durant cette période, l'Imprimerie Nationale, fondée par Richelieu en 1640, est réquisitionnée de force. Elle travaille donc pour la Commune et produit de nombreuses affiches (399 entre le 19 mars et le 25 mai, soit une moyenne de 5 ou 6 affiches par jour). Elles sont, pour la plupart, annotées des mots « Imprimerie nationale » et de la formule « République française. Liberté-Egalité-Fraternité. Commune de Paris ». La distribution des affiches se fait par un service dédié d'environ 50 afficheurs, qui ont pour mission de les placarder plusieurs fois par jour, et même parfois durant la nuit. Selon Laurent Gervereau, les affiches « font office à la fois de moyen d'information, d'outil de commandement et de relais d'opinion, puis d'arme de combat » (La Propagande par l'affiche, Syros-Alternatives Editio … [Click Below for Full Description]

Toning to front wrap; light chipping to outer edge of rear wrap and a small split at lower joint holding well. Signed in type on the rear by Isabella Beecher Hooker, in her capacity as chair. A critical organ of this influential state organization, the present Annual Meeting and Executive Report reports on what was only the group's second meeting after its founding one year before. The only copy on the market, this pamphlet is also scarce institutionally, with OCLC reporting 8 known copies.Nationally, 1870-1871 were landmark years for the women's movement because of both the successes and failures it encountered. Suffragists faced major disappointment in the 15th Amendment; for while it widened the franchise to include freedmen, it did not address women's voting. At the same time, in the territories, women's rights were expanding; and Utah Territory became the first to grant suffrage to women. The National Woman Suffrage Association continued to operate as a unifying agent for the suffrage message, but it also recognized that it could only accomplish its mission through grassroots work at the regional and state levels. Only by getting state suffrage and by gaining Congressmen's support could an Amendment be presented and ratified. During this same period, Isabella Beecher Hooker and Frances Ellen Burr founded the Connecticut Woman Suffrage Association. Much like the NWSA, the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Enschede, Zonen, Haarlem, Holland, portraying Walt Whitman in profile. Underneath, the quote, taken from Whitman's "Democratic Vistas": " We have frequently printed the word Democracy. Yet I cannot too often repeat that it is a word the real gist of which still sleeps, quite unawaken'd, notwithstanding the resonance and many angry tempests out of which its syllables have come, from pen or tongue. It is a great word, whose history, I suppose remains unwritten, because that history has yet to be enacted. It is in some sort, younger brother of another great and often-used word, NATURE, whose history also waits unwritten.

Eliot, George
Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1871 Eight volumes. First edition, first printing. Modern navy cloth with gilt lettering and ruling to spine. An excellent set, bound with the half-titles, former owner inscription to first blank, some very faint spotting, else fine. Overall, a bright and clean set. Middlemarch is the seventh novel by Mary Anne Evans, a top writer of the Victorian Era who chose to write under a male pseudonym so that her works would be taken more seriously. In addition to writing novels, she edited and contributed to the left-wing journal The Westminster Review as one of the only female editors of her time. Her novels were praised for being socially and politically conscious and for their realistic depictions of country life. Set in the fictional town Midlands in Middlemarch (thought to be based on Coventry) in the early 19th century, Middlemarch tells the interwoven stories of three couples' marriages, which are unhappy for a range of romantic and financial reasons. Throughout the text, Eliot references contemporary political events, including the death of George IV, the Reform Act of 1832, and the Industrial Revolution. The novel is divided into eight parts, reflecting its initial serial publication; Volume I contains "Miss Brooke" and "Old and Young," Volume II has "Waiting for Death" and "Three Love Problems," Volume III has "The Dead Hand" and "The Widow and the Wife," and Volume IV contains "Two Temptations" and "Sunset and Sunrise." Middlemarch is widely considered Eliot's masterpiece; when she was asked her opinion on the novel, her … [Click Below for Full Description]
