        [Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; in Italian ] Le Avventure D'Alice nel Paese delle Meraviglie

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1872. Tradotte Dall' Inglese Da T. Pietrocòla-Rossetti. Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered gilt, roundel with "Alice" motif to front cover and "Cheshire Cat" to rear cover, blind rules to covers, top edge gilt. Frontispiece and illustrations by John Tenniel. Spine very slightly rolled, dark marks to covers. Otherwise, an excellent, bright copy. First edition in Italian, first impression, second binding. There are some key differences, as identified by Williams, Madan and Green, between this and the first binding: the rules to the covers are blind-stamped rather than gilt, the top edge only is gilt, rather than all the edges, and the endpapers are plain, rather than coated grey or green. First published in English in 1865 and 1871 respectively, the Alice books were rapidly translated into numerous languages.

        THE KU-KLUX CONSPIRACY

      Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1872. Thirteen volumes, pagination and pertinent details provided in the listing below. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Some labels chipped, some bindings tender or separated with detached leaves, especially the first three volumes, otherwise occasional loose leaves throughout. Small ink library stamp to titlepages, minor foxing, some tanning and brittleness. Overall good. The complete thirteen-volume set of government reports, trial accounts, and circuit court decisions detailing the Congressional investigation of the Ku-Klux Klan in the American South in the early 1870s. Specifically, this inquiry involved Klan activities in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida. The first Klan was formed in the aftermath of the Civil War, mainly led by ex-Confederate Army officers, to actively oppose by violence Reconstruction and the implementation of the 14th Amendment. At the time, the Klan was actively trying to overthrow the legitimate state governments in the south, as a reaction against the Reconstructionists. The Federal government under President Grant took notice and set its sights on the Klan. This examination into their activities ultimately led to the dismantling of the organization for a few generations, before their official revival in 1915, largely the result of the original Klan's favorable depiction in D.W. Griffith's epic silent film, THE BIRTH OF A NATION. A rare work complete. A complete list of the imprints is as follows: 1) INDEX TO THE REPORTS OF THE COMMITTEES OF THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, FOR THE SECOND SESSION OF THE FORTY- SECOND CONGRESS. xviii,[2],632pp. 2) TESTIMONY TAKEN BY THE JOINT SELECT COMMITTEE TO INQUIRE INTO THE CONDITION OF AFFAIRS IN THE LATE INSURRECTIONARY STATES.

        Kapital. Kritika politicheskoj ekonomii. Perevod c nmetskago. Tom pervoej. Kniga I. Protschess proizvodstva Kapitala.

      St. Petersburg, N. P. Poliakov, 1872. - 8vo. (2), XIII, (3), 678 pp. Printed on very thick, heavy, vellum-like paper. Bound in a splendid, contemporary, Russian full diced calf binding with blindstamped and darker coloured rectangular "frames" to boards and to compartments of spine. Gilt title to spine. First edition, first issue in Russian, the first translation of "Das Kapital" into any language: a truly magnificent copy of an otherwise unknown deluxe edition printed on special, very heavy paper, making it about 30% thicker than the usual first edition copies. - Although Marx's other works were banned in Russia, the Tsarist censors passed "Das Kapital" as harmless on account of its length and complexity, and the book - rather unexpectedly - became an immediate success with the Russian intelligentsia in search of a theoretical model for industrializing their economically backward country. The press-run of 3000 copies was soon exhausted, and the ensuing ban on the book, when the board of censorship realized their error, prohibited the planned second edition (which was subsequently brought out in New York). The appearance on the market of any first edition has therefore become a great rarity. No mention of a deluxe edition is made at all in the vast bibliographical literature on "Das Kapital". While one could only speculate on the reason for preparing such a special edition, its number must have been extremely small, likely limited to no more than a handful of copies for a small, exclusive group - possibly to be sought among the young revolutionary intellectuals who had laboured for years to make possible the Russian translation, which soon was going to have such a profound effect on world history. This is the only such copy we have been able to locate. - A bit of wear to extremities and traces of faint dampstaining to boards. Inner front hinge slightly weak; the first few leaves with faint traces of slight dampstaining. Very light occasional brownspotting, otherwise fresh and crisp. Old Russian newspaper-clippings to endpapers. A uniquely produced specimen of one of the most influential books ever published. Marx-Engels Erstdrucke 33. Cf. PMM 359.

        London: a pilgrimage

      Grant and co 1872 - "London: a pilgrimage", by Gustave Dore and Blanchard Jerrold. Grant & co, London. 1872, first UK edition. Complete with all 54 plates and 126 illustrations. Inscribed by Gustave Dore as a wedding present to a friend. Very good copy, bound in leather. Rebound spine blends in splendidly with the rest of the binding, scuffs, rubbing to boards, a few large scuffs with small strips of leather omitted from the binding, edges of boards exposing the board underneath. boards pliable, Dore's dedication to the engraved title page. The pages are nice and tight to the binding and the book remains firm. Odd spots and marks mostly isolated to the margins. “One can hardly deny that Doré is not merely one of the most popular but also one of the greatest of all illustrators Perhaps Taine summed up Doré’s appeal most eloquently: ‘every imagination appeared languid in comparison with his. For energy, force, superabundance, originality, sparkle, and gloomy grandeur, I know only one equal to his— that of Tintoretto” (Ray, 327-29). “By 1872, Doré was the most popular artist in England, illustrator or painter. This work was eagerly awaited by the English public, having been postponed by the Franco-Prussian War The idea was to match Doré’s artistic genius with an in-depth view of all segments of London society— the rich and the poor, the common people at work and play, famous sites and slums, nobility and criminals, Many were the days and nights that Doré went in disguise, with undercover policemen for protection, to see parts of London not listed in any tour guide The result was a book often hailed as the greatest visual expression of the social class struggle ever published” (Malan, 127). “The other day,” once wrote Vincent van Gogh, “I saw a complete set of Doré’s pictures of London. I tell you it is superb, and noble in sentiment.” Malan, 281. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        THE EXPRESSION OF THE EMOTIONS IN MAN AND ANIMALS BY CHARLES DARWIN First Edition,(1st Issue) with photographic and other illustrations

      JOHN MURRAY, LONDON 1872 - Publisher's green cloth - 1st Edition, 1st Issue. vi, 374pp, index. 7 photographic plates, as called for (numbered with Roman numerals, Pl.I-VII, as in Darwin's own copy. Both 1st and 2nd issue copies seem to randomly contain roman or Arabic numbering (i.e. Pl.1-7) on the inserted plates). 1st Edition, 1st Issue points: the word 'that' is spelt correctly on p. 208 (see photo). Though not widely known in the book trade there are errors in this first issue (unnoticed by Freeman) which were corrected in the second: the first of these appears to be on p.104 where at the bottom of the page the first issue reads "in all the languages of Europe" (see photo below) and the second has been changed to "in several languages of Europe". Including the publisher's integral adverts at rear. Even here R. B. Freeman noticed some subtle differences between the first and 2nd issue and this copy is in keeping with Freeman's observations regarding the 1st/1st. Freeman: F1142 CONDITION: VERY GOOD. Original cloth has not been restored (re-backed or recased) and has very little wear. Remarkably bright for a book that is usually found in dull and worn condition. Bumbing to corners with minor loss to cloth. Small nick to head of spine. Minor wear to foot of spine. Tiny area of wear to front joint. Binding tight. Old name and address to head of title page. Very little foxing or soiling to text pages (minor foxing to plates). Corner crease to p. 87/88. Plates generally very clean. No inks or pencil marks in text. Rear endpaper split but hinge secure. A solid, and highly presentable copy of this important part of Darwin's works on evolutionary biology. The 1st issue is scarce: of the 15 or so first editions that I can see in commerce at present there is only one other 1st issue at the time of listing (16/09/17). Please e-mail if you would like me to send further photos. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

        The Dessert Book. A complete manual from the best American and foreign authorities. With original economical recipes.

      Boston: J. E. Tilton and Company. 1872 - Octavo.

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).
