Published by the Western Amateur Publishing Company: C. B. Monson, C. M. Ludlam, J. P. Tracy, and S. R. Church, San Francisco, CA, 1872. tall 8vo. original printed wrappers. pp. 26-52; two leaves ads at rear; full-page illustrated ad at rear wrapper (woodcut by Shourds, of street view of Haynes & Lawton, "Manufactures of Extra Quality Silver-Plated ware, on White Metal. Market St., under Grand Hotel"). Much of its content identified as "Written for the Leisure Moments," including a poem, "Yosemite," by James Ryan (at p. 41), and "Noah Webster's First Love," by J. A. R. (presenting "facts . obtained from some old acquaintances of Noah Webster . [and] omitted by his biographers"). The last page of text contains notice of difficulty in production: "The first sixteen pages of this magazine went to press about the middle of January, and the final sixteen pages were nearly ready by the 25th of the same month, but although almost ready for press, nothing further was done for a month, and consequently, through neglect, the February number of this magazine is a month behind time. We shall take care in [the] future that it will not occur again. We are not sure about publishing a March number, but most likely we will." Little record of this publication is found. An example of the first issue (Jan. 1872) is held by the American Antiquarian Society, with note that it "Ceased Feb. 1872. - Cf. California amateur's directory for 1873" and "Absorbed in part: Far West (San Francisco, Calif.)."

Robert Browning
~ Signed Robert Browning Letter Relating To His Publisher 1872 Plus Two Books 'Poems' 1849 ~ A handwritten and signed letter by Robert Browning to his publishers 'Tauchnitz Publishers'. The letter was sent from St Aubin Sur Mer., Calvados on the 24th August 1872. St Aubin sur mer incidentally is where Robert Browning wrote 'Red Cotton Night-Cap Country, or Turf and Towers' which was set in St Aubin Sur Mer and published less than a year after this letter was written so we can presume he was writing this at the time. The letter mentions his publisher Baron Tauchnitz by name. The letter reads as follows: "Dear Sir, Will you have the kindness to send, in conformity with the permission of Baron Tauchnitz, twelve copies of the poem to my address - 19 Warwick Crescent, Upper Westbourne Terrace, W. Yours obediently Robert Browning." The letter comes with a postcard of a boy and his dog outside a cottage, the origins of which are not known and with two volumes of Robert Browning books 'Poems' from 1849 which is a collection on unpublished and out of print poems. 'Poems by Robert Browning. In two volumes. A new edition. London Chapman & Hall, 186, Strand 1849'. The books are hardback originals, later rebound. ~ Dimensions ~ The letter is on a single piece of plain white paper measuring 4 ½ inches (11.5cm) by 4 inches (10cm).

Estabrooke, Edward M.
Cincinnati and Louisville: Gatchel & Hyatt, 1872. Estabrook. First edition. Small 8vo., 200 pp., [28] adverts, one (of two) original sample ferrotype portrait by the author, with printed paper overmat mounted to the reverse of the original printed yellow boards bound in a later binding of half morocco and marbled paper over boards, all edges marbled. Lacking the second ferrotype for which there is a printed overmat on the reverse of the rear printed yellow board. Very good. Over the years, I have examined and sold at least seven copies of this manual in the first and second editions - the only ones to contain original ferrotypes. In every instance, the ferrotype was inserted under a printed window overmat, and affixed directly to the front and/or rear board of the binding (the first edition contains two ferrotypes, the second edition only one.) This copy, although in a later binding, has printed yellow boards in the front and rear, to which the ferrotype is mounted on the reverse with a printed window overmat. The boards are on original tabs, and the front wrapper also serves as the title page (although there is evidence that a leaf is lacking where the title page would normally be.) I have never before encountered this variant, nor have I seen mention of it in all the years I have been cataloguing and selling photographic manuals. It may be assumed that this was a sample binding that was ultimately rejected as too delicate for distribution. Regretfully, this copy is lacking the second original ferrotype, which might not have been included in this sample binding. A complete … [Click Below for Full Description]
