        The Raven [Cover Title]: Carrier's Address! of the The Valley Echo. January 1, 1873

      [Greencastle, Pennsylvania: The Valley Echo, 1872. Near Fine. Octavo. Sewn mustard yellow printed wrappers. 7pp., ads on both inside wraps. Illustrated with four engravings by David Scattergood. Very good with a crease at the corners, a few ink stains, and some wear to the yapped edges. A New Year's Day carrier's address issued by The Valley Echo of Greencastle, Pennsylvania. The address, published as a pamphlet, reproduces four Scattergood engravings and a page showing The Raven put to music, which was first published by P.P. Hayes in Philadelphia in 1865. Several reprints of this edition followed, but this copy appears to be one of only a handful of similarly published carrier's addresses issued in 1873 at six different newspapers in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri. The lack of publishing information makes us suspect the sheets were distributed serially with each newspaper printing their own wrappers containing local advertisements. Each of these carrier addresses is rare. OCLC locates three copies of this The Valley Echo edition.

        Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.

      London: MacMillan and Co., 1872. Octavo, two volumes, uniformly bound by Bayntun Riviere in full crushed red morocco, all edges gilt, gilt tooling to the front and rear panels, emblematic gilt spine compartments, raised bands, gilt turn-ins, inlaid panel of black, white, green, purple, and brown of Father William on the cover of Alice in Wonderland, inlaid figure of the Mad Hatter on front cover of Through the Looking Glass. Marbled endpapers, original cloth bindings tipped in to rear of each volume. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is an early printing. Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There is a first edition, first issue with 'wade' for 'wabe' on page 21. Illustrated by John Tenniel, text illustrated. A stunning set. Alice's Adventures were "born on a golden afternoon" in July 1862, when the Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) took the three small daughters of Dean Liddell of Christ Church on a boating trip up the Isis. Carroll delighted the three children by relating Alice's adventures, and eventually promised his favorite among the three, Alice Liddell, to write the story down for her. Through the Looking-Glass can be seen as a mirror image of the Alice's Adventures. For example, the latter begins outdoors in the warmth of May 4 and uses the imagery of playing cards, while the former begins indoors on a snowy, cold November 4 and uses the imagery of chess. "The two Alice books completed the reinstatement of the imagination, so long disapproved of by the opponents of fairy stories, to its proper place. ‘Alice is, in a word, a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete'" (Carpenter & Prichard, 102).

        O boji národa amerického za samostatnost [About the American people's struggle for independence]. WITH: O Ji?ím Washingtonu, zakladateli svobody Americké [About George Washington, the founder of American freedom]. Series title: Osv?ta lidu. Bibliotéka prostonárodních p?edná?ek [Education of the people. A library of popular lectures], vols. 1 and 6

      Prague: Jan Otto, 1872. Small octavos (17.5 × 11 cm). Original printed wrappers with engraved vignette; 80 and 64 pp. respectively. Very good copies. Two pamphlets, containing historical lectures about the American Revolution and George Washington, respectively, and both held in the "Osv?ta" ("Enlightenment") circle in Prague. T?ma's talks were later published as part of this series of popular educational booklets. The author, the journalist and writer Karel T?ma (1843-1917) was a noted political activist who fought for numerous liberal causes. In 1868 he was sentenced to jail for his political editorials. In the present pamphlet, too, his impassioned account of Washington's struggle is closely related to the Czechs' love for freedom, and the dear memory of famous Czech leaders such as Jan Hus, Jiri ?i?ka, and Jan Amos Komenský. The book is also one of the earliest Czech accounts of Washington's life. The rear wrappers of both volumes feature a description of the progressive aims of the "Osv?ta lidu" series. Outside of the Czech Republic, KVK and OCLC show copies of the first volume at the Austrian National Library, British Library, Herder-Institut, Texas A&M, Utah and Yale; the Washington biography is only held by the Czech National Library.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; [together with:] Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1866 & 1872 - 2 works, octavo. Original red cloth, Alice in Wonderland rebacked with original spine laid-down, spines lettered in gilt, triple gilt rules to covers, gilt roundels with "Alice" motifs to covers, dark green endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in individual custom red chemises, together in a custom red morocco pull-off case. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedowns, binder's ticket to rear pastedowns. Alice in Wonderland: somewhat inexpertly repaired, cloth slightly marked and bubbled, hinges repaired, small repair to foot of p. 5, occasional faint spot of foxing. Looking-Glass: an excellent copy in unusually bright cloth, hinges cracked but holding, text block sound. Frontispieces and 90 illustrations by John Tenniel. First editions. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is the first published edition: the book was originally printed in Oxford at the Clarendon Press in June 1865, but was suppressed when Dodgson heard that the book's illustrator was dissatisfied with the quality of the printing. He recalled the few pre-publication copies he had sent out to his friends and donated them to hospitals, where most perished. Only 23 of those original "1865 Alices" are now extant, mostly in institutional holdings, thus creating one of the most famous black tulips of book collecting. The book was entirely reset by Richard Clay for this authorized Macmillan edition which, although dated 1866, was in fact ready by November 1865, in time for the Christmas market, and was published in an edition of 4,000 copies. Likewise, Through the Looking-Glass was published for the Christmas market and bears the following year's date in its imprint. It was actually published in December 1871, in an edition of 9,000 copies. The set bears the bookplates of Samuel Putnam Avery (1822–1904), New York art dealer, and book collector Herbert Ten Broeck Jacquelin, together with a letter laid in from E. P. Dutton & Co. to Jacquelin, dated 11 November 1919 and offering the copies for sale. Williams–Madan–Green–Crutch 46 & Crutch 84. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Cruise in the "Eothen". 1872.

      London: Printed fro Private Circulation,, 1872. Octavo. Original green cloth, bevelled boards, title gilt to the spine, gilt ship portrait block of the Eothen to the front board with decoration in black above and below, decoration repeated on the lower board, all edges gilt. Mounted photographic portrait frontispiece and 31 other similar plates, one with three mounted portraits, another with four, the rest with single images views and "types" including a rather dubious "Sioux Indian", one single-tint lithographic plate, folding track chart. Slightly rubbed, corners bumped, head and tail of spine chipping, hinges starting, consequently a little shaken, but overall very good. First and only edition, uncommon, just 3 locations on Copac - BL, NMM, and Oxford - OCLC adds around a dozen more. This copy inscribed on the half title in Lady Brassey's inimitably loose hand; "Frau [?]Cootes from Annie Brassey, Jan[uar]y 1873". Account of the Brassey's second voyage which encouraged them to take on their first circumnavigation in the Sunbeam. "Lady Brassey joined her husband on board the steam auxiliary barkentine Eothen in Quebec and sailed in her to Chesapeake Bay. Because the 345-ton yacht was too small for a comfortable crossing of the Atlantic, the family returned to England by liner. Essentially a travelogue, but extremely well written" (Toy)`. Takes in Quebec, Montreal, Niagara, Halifax, New York and Washington. Robinson is inevitably somewhat dismissive; "There is no doubt that Annie Brassey admired such contemporaries as Isabella Bird and Marianne north, but she probably thought their exertions a little de trop. The world we see through her eyes is better prepared than theirs, and more distant and refined, since she had a portable England to return to every night" (Wayward Women, p.204). Nonetheless, luxury travel remains travel and Lady Brassey's books evoke the era every bit as well as those of her more adventurous woman travellers.

Original brown cloth, titles to spine gilt, reversed out of gilt decoration to front cover, decorations blocked in black and gilt, double frame blocked in blind to rear cover, yellow endpapers. Advert for liquid rennet tipped in at rear. Bumps to spine ends, slight wear to extremities, dust toning to top edge, occasional light foxing, a very good copy. First edition. This cookery book, designed for a mass audience using products readily available, notably features a section on chocolate and its uses as a beverage. This work provides a useful insight into the practice of sellers adulterating chocolate "with a variety of starch grain items" to meet ever-increasing demand. The author cautions readers that true chocolate should not thicken as prepared, and if it does, farina, a form of milled wheat, had been added. It also includes recommendations alongside the recipes, for example that white chocolate is "suited to delicate persons, and those weakened by a long illness". Laid in is an advertisement for Brower Bros. Lap Tablets, which were made "in silk and velvet. in portfolio shape with Dreka's dictionary blotters set in, which makes the tablets a complete writing companion" (The Publishers Weekly - Volume 12, p. 472).

        ROUGHING IT

      Hartford: American Publishing Company, 1872. FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE (all points State A).

        THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS, AND WHAT ALICE FOUND THERE

      London: Macmillan & Co, 1872. Twenty-Fourth Thousand (i.e., published in the same year as the first edition, but a later issue). This charming binding is the perfect covering for "Looking-Glass," the popular sequel to "Alice in Wonderland." Kelliegram's signature pictorial inlays are at their best in these interpretations of Tenniel's red and white queens, messengers Haigha and Hatta, Humpty Dumpty, the Walrus and the Carpenter, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the knitting Sheep, and the elderly Frog. Among the most enduringly popular works in all of children's literature, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass" have been continuously reprinted for well over a century, and have inspired any number of works in other media. Intricate, inventive, absorbing, humorous, and revolutionary, "Glass" (and "Alice") differed by miles the typical children's book of the period, which was meant first and last to inculcate. Producing illustrations for Carroll's works was fraught with problems. Tenniel (1820-1914), the principal cartoonist for "Punch Magazine" for more than half of the 50 years he was on that publication's staff, was not pleased with the printing of his pictures in the original 1865 issue of "Alice," and the work had to be reprinted. Moreover, Tenniel found the novelist himself to be much too demanding. As Williams & Madan says, "Dodgson had proved so exact, and exacting, as a critic of the way his requirements were carried out, that Tenniel, when approached about the illustrations for 'Through The Looking-Glass,' declared he was too busy." The firm of Kelly & Sons had one of the longest histories in the London binding trade, having been founded in 1770 by John Kellie, as the name was then spelled. The firm was continued by successive members of the family into the 1930s. William Henry Kelly helped to develop the company in the first half of the 19th century, and he was succeeded by William Henry Kelly, Jr., then Henry Kelly, and finally Hubert Kelly, who took control in 1892. Though the bindery would never be considered among the two or three outstanding workshops, it produced consistently high quality bindings; some evidence of this can be seen in the fact that the sale catalogue of the distinguished Chevalier collection included three books bound by Kelliegram. The contents here are in pleasing condition, especially given the work's juvenile audience, and the binding is like new.. 185 x 122 mm. (7 1/4 x 4 3/4"). 6 p.l., 224, [2] pp. Twenty-Fourth Thousand (i.e., published in the same year as the first edition, but a later issue). WHIMSICAL KELLY GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO WITH PICTORIAL INLAYS BY KELLIEGRAM (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), covers with gilt rule frame featuring medallion inlays of characters from the story at each corner, large ogival central panel, that on the front cover with an inlaid (smiling!) Humpty Dumpty teetering on a blind-tooled wall, the rear cover showing the walrus attired in country tweeds, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with a chess piece at center, gilt titling, turn-ins with multiple gilt rules, sprays of buds at corners, orange raw silk endleaves, all edges gilt. Original red cloth bound in. In a fleece-lined buckram clamshell box. With 50 illustrations in the text by John Tenniel. Front flyleaf with embossed ex-libris stamp of Dana C. Bradford. Williams & Madan 84. Short fore-edge tear to rear free endleaf, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, the text showing virtually no signs of use, and IN A SPARKLING BINDING. This charming binding is the perfect covering for "Looking-Glass," the popular sequel to "Alice in Wonderland."

        Botany of the Speke and Grant Expedition.

      London: Taylor and Francis,, 1872[-5]. An Enumeration of the Plants collected during the Journey of the Late Captain J. H. Speke and Captain (now Lieut-Col.) J. A. Grant from Zanzibar to Egypt. The Determinations and Descriptions by Professor Oliver and Others connected with the Herbarium, Royal Gardens, Kew; with an Introductory Preface, Alphabetical List of Native Names, and Notes by J. Augustus Grant. Forming Vol. XXIX of the Transactions of the Linnean Society of London. 3 parts in 1 volume, quarto (285 x 215 mm). Contemporary blue-green half morocco, raised bands gilt to spine forming compartments, gilt title direct to second, recent cloth sides, new endpapers and cloth inner hinges, edges sprinkled red. Folding map coloured in outline, 136 lithographic plates by W. H. Fitch. Spine, joints and tips slight rubbed, short chip to head of front joint, text-block toned, presentation inscription faintly offset to slightly spotted title page, occasional mild foxing, slightly stronger to plate 1, which has a small hole from the erasure of a pencilled annotation, the image unaffected, plates 125-9 slightly creased at upper outer corner. A very good copy. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by Grant to African explorer Sir John Kirk on a panel from the original wrappers bound to face the title page: "My dear Kirk, I avail myself of the oppty of Sir Bartle Frere to send you Part I of the Botany of the 'Speke & Grant Expedition' and hope that future travellers will will [sic] find some advantage from it, yours sincerely, J. A. Grant, 7 Park Sq, 17 Mar. 1872". Kirk (1832-1922), physician and naturalist, was Livingstone's chief assistant on the second Zambesi expedition (1858-63). He collected a considerable number of botanical specimens during the journey, and these laid the foundations for the voluminous, government-sponsored Flora of Tropical Africa (1868–1917). In 1866 he was appointed vice-consul, Zanzibar. Sir Bartle Frere was despatched to the island in 1872 to help him negotiate a treaty for the suppression of the slave trade with Sultan Barghash bin Said, an agreement which established Kirk as the island's de facto ruler. Grant himself has gone down as a figure "somewhat underrated, perhaps because, although a member of the successful Nile expedition of 1860–63, he did not himself visit the actual source of the river. Yet his scientific approach, his remarkable written and visual records of east Africa, and his later career mark him out as a considerable figure" (ODNB). His researches on the Nile expedition, conducted under difficult conditions, earned him the Royal Geographical Society Gold Medal, and his specimens are handsomely depicted by the lithographs of W. H. Fitch, who was the outstanding botanical artist of his day.

Beneath Zanzibar's exotic exterior, Burton found a state of near anarchy, disease, squalor, and a shamelessly open slave trade. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Little Joe; a Tale of the Pacific Railway

      London, William Tweedie, [1872]. Duodecimo, [ii] (title leaf), 96 pages plus a frontispiece. Original dark green cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and front cover, extensively decorated in black and gilt on the front cover, and in blind at the rear; later inexpertly recased with new endpapers (but retaining the original flyleaves); minor blemishes to the first two sections due to the recasing (including sewing imperfections to the gutters); scattered light foxing and a few mild signs of use and age; a decent copy with a gift inscription from the Brighton & Sussex Band of Hope Union in 1879. Provenance: Edward Edgar Pescott (1872-1954), horticulturalist, naturalist, author and book-collector, with his surname signature in pencil on the title page. In his Bonwick bibliography, published in 1939, Pescott records this item as number 50 ('Little Joe. London, 1862') and marks it as unseen. Clearly he found a copy before he died (in 1954), but very few others have - this is a rarity of the highest calibre. Ferguson 7225 (errors with the date and title, not noting the frontispiece); Pescott 50 (unseen, misdated, incomplete); Muir 774; Featherstone, pages 65-6 (correcting Ferguson).
