      1876. hardcover. Verne, Jules. THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND. [Consisting of:] Part I. DROPPED FROM THE CLOUDS. [Plus:] Part II. ABANDONED. [Plus:] Part III. THE SECRET OF THE ISLAND. [Together, three volumes.] Translated from the French by W. H. G. Kingston. Second Edition. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1876. 3 pp undated ads in Part III. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. 3 vols. <p>First English Edition, second impression, of all three volumes that were sold separately but which together form one of Verne&#39;s greatest tales. The translation, unfortunately, was effected by W. H. G. Kingston, whose</p> <p><?ms_indent>translation changed the hero&#39;s name from Smith to Harding. Further, Kingston abridged or omitted many of the technical passages indicating the castaway&#39;s scientific development of the island. Verne&#39;s anti-imperialist sentiments expressed by the dying Captain Nemo were also reversed by Kingston so as not to offend English readers... Unfortunately, Kingston&#39;s became the standard translation, to this day inflicting his omissions and distortions on English language readers. [T&M]</?ms_indent></p> <p>Sampson Low&#39;s first edition (all three volumes) came out in September 1875. T&M records their second impression as coming out in February 1879 -- perhaps a typo, as <i>this</i> is the second impression of all three volumes (with "Second Edition" on each title page), and all three volumes are dated 1876. Meanwhile Scribner Armstrong and Henry Shepard were battling it out in America, soon joined by pirate publishers such as Donnelly Loyd of Chicago, Household Words of Boston, Charles Warburton of Philadelphia, and of course George Munro of New York. However, Sampson Low&#39;s English editions are <i>much</i> scarcer than the Scribner Armstrong and Shepard American editions; the Sampson Low first impressions seldom ever turn up on the market, and these second impressions (as evidenced by T&M&#39;s not having seen them) are quite scarce as well. Also, the plates in the English editions tend to be considerably sharper than in the American editions.</p> <p>In any event, this is a matched set of the English second impression, all three volumes in green pictorial cloth (page edges plain; the first impression&#39;s page edges are gilded). All three volumes are in attractive, just-about-fine condition, with scarcely any external soil or wear (only the very slightest of rubbing at the edges; a few leaves at each end of each volume have light foxing); even the original delicate peach-colored endpapers are clean and uncracked. Given the extreme scarcity of the first impressions (in over 20 years we have offered only one set in this condition, at $22,500), this set of second impressions is highly collectible.

      New York: Scribner, Armstrong, & Co., 743-745 Broadway,. 1876. original pictorial green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and gold, rear panel stamped in blind, yellow endpapers.. Mild rubbing to cloth and spine ends and corner tips, some faint,. barely perceptible stains to rear cover, a bright, tight, clean,. otherwise nearly fine copy. An attractive, superior copy of this. book. (#135558). First combined edition. An authorized edition of DROPPED FROM THE CLOUDS, the first part of THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, was first published in book form in the fall of 1874 by Scribner, Armstrong as THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND ... WRECKED IN THE AIR to compete with a pirated edition published at or about the same time by Henry L. Shepard as THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND. PART FIRST, SHIPWRECKED IN THE AIR. In September 1875 Sampson Low, Marston, Low, & Searle published THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND in three volumes subtitled DROPPED FROM THE CLOUDS, ABANDONED and THE SECRET OF THE ISLAND. In November 1875 Scribner, Armstrong brought out their uniform three-volume edition, printed in Boston using Sampson Low plates. Sometime before 31 March 1876 Scribner, Armstrong published their combined edition, which sold for $3.00, half the cost of the three-volume set. Three other combined editions of THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, all unauthorized, were published in 1876: a 650-page edition with 24 illustrations produced by Donnelly, Loyd and Company of Chicago; an abridged translation by Hawley Lee which had been serialized in AMERICAN HOMES, published by "Household Words" Publishing Company of Boston; and an abridged translation by Stephen W. White that had been published in THE EVENING TELEGRAPH was published in book form by the newspaper as a 25¢ paperback. The priority of these 1876 combined editions has not been established, but this Scribner, Armstrong edition is the more elaborate and less common of the four.

        Map of New York City south of 46th. St

      New York: M. Dripps, 1876. Folding lithographic map (39 3/4 x 26 3/4 inches), hand-coloured in outline. (Small clean tears to folds, small section at foot of title excised by the publisher, replaced with identical paper and with some manuscript work added). 1p. letterpress 'Catalogue of M. Dripps' Maps' tipped onto front pastedown of cover. (Small clean tears to folds.) Unbound, as issued, within original dark brown cloth boards, blocked in blind, with title 'Dripps' Large Map of N.Y. City' blocked in gilt on upper cover. A fine example of this pocket map, with a fully- coloured inset of a copy of Thomas Kitchin's map of 'New York Island' (originally published in the London Magazine in 1778) and interesting lists of Police Stations and sub-Post Offices, a street directory, and a key to rail road routes The title notes that the map also includes details '... showing new arrangement Docks, piers and water frontage also soundings and former high water line Elevated and horse car railroad routes, traced by characters, public buildings, churches, &c. Street directory and numbers.' The detail on the map is impressive, with numerous businesses, hotels, banks, theatres, etc. identified, as well as the route of the elevated railway along Greenwich Street -- the first elevated railroad in Manhattan. In the same year, Dripps also issued a two-sheet map which extended the area covered north to 135th street but was otherwise similar (the same inset Kitchin map for instance). Cf. "Checklist of Maps and Atlases relating to the city of New York in the New York Public Library" in the Bulletin of the New York Public Library, volume V (New York: 1901), p.71 ("Map ... south of 135th Street'); not in Rumsey.

        Poetical Works, The [And] The Prose Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley

      1876. first edition. The Best Edition of the Poetical and Prose Works of Shelley,in a Superb Cosway-Style Binding by Bayntun (Rivière)[COSWAY-STYLE BINDING]. SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe. The Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley. Edited by Harry Buxton Forman. In Four Volumes. London: Reeves and Turner, 1876-1877. [Together with:] SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe. The Prose Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley. Edited by Harry Buxton Forman. In Four Volumes. London: Reeves and Turner, 1880.First edition edited by H. Buxton Forman. Together eight octavo volumes (8 7/16 x 5 3/8 inches; 214 x 136 mm.). Frontispieces and plates.Uniformly bound by Bayntun (Rivière) of Bath (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in) in mid twentieth-century dark brown crushed levant morocco. Covers with gilt triple fillet border, spines decoratively ruled and lettered in gilt in compartments with five raised bands, board edges with gilt-dotted rule, gilt inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. A spectacular set.Volume I of The Poetical Works is set with a fine oval portrait miniature (3 3/16 x 2 7/16 inches; 81 x 62 mm.) on ivory under glass of Shelley, surrounded by an inner oval band of onlaid russet morocco within single gilt fillets and an outer decorative intertwining gilt border which is set with sixteen semi-precious stones. A superb example. From the library of William A. Foyle , with his bookplate on front pastedown.&#147;The first edition [of The Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley] appeared in 1876-7, and in 1880 the Prose Works also were published Mr. Forman. In the same year (1880) the eight volumes were issued under a collective title, The Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley in Verse and Prose, etc.&#148; (Granniss).&#147;It would be difficult indeed to over-estimate the gains which have accrued to the lovers of Shelley from the strenuous labours of Mr. Harry Buxton Forman, C.B. He too has enlarged the body of Shelley&#146;s poetry (Mr. Forman&#146;s most notable addition is the second part of &#145;The Daemon of the World&#146;, which he printed privately in 1876, and included in his Library Edition of the &#145;Poetical Works&#146; published in the same year&#133;but, important as his editions undoubtedly are, it may safely be affirmed that his services in this direction constitute the least part of what we owe him. He has vindicated the authenticity of the text in many places, while in many others he has succeeded, with the aid of manuscripts, in restoring it. His untiring industry in research, his wide bibliographical knowledge and experience, above all, his accuracy, as invariable as it is minute, have combined to make him, in the words of Professor Dowden, &#145;our chief living authority on all that relates to Shelley&#146;s writings.&#146; His name stands securely linked for all time to Shelley&#146;s by a long series of notable words, including three successive editions (1876, 1882, 1892) of the Poems, an edition of the Prose Remains, as well as many minor publications&#151;a Bibliography (&#147;The Shelley Library&#148;, 1886) and several Facsimile Reprints of the early issues, edited for the Shelley Society&#148; (Preface to the Oxford Edition of The Complete Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley, edited by Thomas Hutchinson [1914]).Granniss 89.
