Old folds, else near fine. Peters, Currier & Ives, I, p. 70 et seq . Thomas Worth (1834- 1917), "Uncle Tommy" as he was known to all his acquaintances and friends, sold his first comic sketch to Nathaniel Currier in 1855; he was to become one of the most popular of Currier & Ives's artists. He specialized in comic and caricature work--one of his "Darktown Comics" lithographs sold 73,000 copies--but also did racing and sporting scenes, as well as other subjects. In addition, he illustrated Dickens's Old Curiosity Shop, and contributed to "Judge" and other periodicals. He was a careful craftsman, often revising his work until he had achieved the best possible effect, and was noted for his enormous personal charm

        [Strindberg] Klubbens handlingar.

      Första kapitlet. 23 november 1880-1881. Stockholm, Central-tryckeriet, 1881. (12) s. + (STAAFF, ERIK) Strindberg och "Klubben". Ur Pehr Staaffs efterlämnade papper. Tidningsurklipp ur Dagens nyheter den 25 augusti 1918. (3) s. Lätt nött rött halvmarokängband med upphöjda bind och övre guldsnitt (Knut Hässlers bokbinderi). Främre omslag medbundet. Tidningsurklippet, monterat i tvåspalt på tre sidor efter huvudarbetet, har orsakat viss missfärgning av sista sidan av trycket. Med Lars A. Lindgrens exlibris och Svante Svedlins förgyllda pärmexlibris.. Ej i Zetterlund. Det "eviga och glänsande" sällskapet Klubben, vars "synliga ändamål" enligt stadgarna var "nöjet", stiftades hösten 1880 av Strindberg. Det bestod ursprungligen av 17 medlemmar. August och Siri Strindberg delade på sekreterarsysslan och deras skämtsamma "halfårsberättelse" återfinns på s. (9). I Erik Staaffs artikel avslöjas bland annat det alkoholbemängda "Ceremoniel vid receptionerna" som i boken representeras av en tom sida med noten: "Får icke tryckas". Den likaledes med en tom sida markerade "Klubbens hemlighet" förblir dock förborgad

        Dorothy: A Poem

      Autograph Manuscript. 78 folio leaves, written on the rectos only. Small tears at the extremities, some smudges, a few pencil corrections, mostly editorial in nature, near fine, housed in a cloth chemise and slipcase. Dated in pencil 14 March 1880. Laid in is a Typed Letter Signed from the author's great nephew, A.N.L. Munby, the compiler of the monumental catalog of the fantastic Sir Thomas Phillipps collection of manuscripts, dated in 1956 to an American bookseller, thanking the bookseller for informing him that he has three of Phillipps's manuscripts, which he will add to his lists, expressing interest that the dealer has his great-uncle's manuscript, and mentioning that the rest of A.J. Munby's manuscripts are at Trinity College in Cambridge. The author's finished and final draft of this epic poem about a working woman, a subject he apparently found fascinating, as he clandestinely married a maidservant while he continually interviewed working women. His diaries of these interviews are generally considered of equal or even more lasting value than his poetry. .

        A.L.S. Longfellow to noted poet and journalist Charles Kent

      4 pp. Cambridge, Apr. 29, 1880. 12mo. Neatly written letter from Longfellow to Charles Kent (1823-1902), well-known English poet, biographer and journalist, concerning a book written by Kent ("Corona Catholica), and others sent to Longfellow for which Kent had never heard back concerning Longfellow's receipt of the books. He writes: "My Dear Mr. Kent, I hasten wit all speed to thank you for your kind letter and for the "Corona Catholica," both of which reached me safely and are very welcome. But I am troubled by what you say of the other books sent so long ago, your collected Poems, and "Charles Dickens as Reader." They were both received and I wrote to you at the time a letter full of thanks, particularly for the Poems and among the Poems, more particularly for the beautiful lines addressed to me, which I always deeply feel." He goes on to say that he is truly grieved that his letter never reached Kent, with the only consolation being this letter. He also thanks Kent for the "Corona" but states that is "very curious..." and that he does care as much for the "Prophecy of St. Malachi" as Kent does. "But I do care for the versions of your lines in various languages. I have always been much interested in such things, and this is a valuable addition to my little store of linguistic curiosities. Signed in full, "Yours faithfully, Henry W. Longfellow. Superb letter in very good condition.

        PRINCIPLES Of ELECTRO-HOMOEOPATHY. A New Science Discovered by Coiunt Cesar Mattei, of Bologna

      Nice:: Printing and Stereotype Offices V.-E. Gauthier and Co.,. 1880.. 8vo. 7-1/8" x 4-5/8". 1st Edition in English. [2], 6, 235, [5] pp.. Modern brown quarter calf binding with marbled paper boards. New eps.. Binding - Fine. Textblock - VG+ (occasional po pencil underlining &. marginal notes).. Electro-homoeopathy is a derivative of homeopathy that originated with Count Cesar Mattei of Bologna. The name is derived from a combination of electro (referring to an electric bio-energy content supposedly extracted from plants and of therapeutic value, rather than electricity in its conventional sense) and homeopathy (referring to an alternative medicinal philosophy developed by Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century). Electro- homeopathy has been defined as the combination of electrical devices and homeopathy, however some contend that it is the therapeutic use of homeopathic preparations of certain "electric bio-energy" herbs that is intended by the term. The discipline is regarded as distinct from traditional homeopathy, which relies on serially diluted remedies of substances that cause similar symptoms to those as it is attempting to cure; electro-homeopathy, however, does not directly follow the "law of similars". Mattei studied natural science, anatomy, physiology, pathology, chemistry and botany. He ultimately focused on the supposed therapeutic power of 'electricity' in botanical extracts, making bold, ultimately unsupported, claims for the efficacy of his treatments, including the claim that his treatments offered a non-surgical alternative to cancer. Not surprisingly, his claims were met with skepticism by established medical authorities. Notwithstanding criticisms, including a challenge by the British medical establishment to the claimed success of cancer treatments, electro-homeopathy (or Matteism, as it was sometimes known at the time) was embraced and by the beginning of the 20th century had adherents in Germany, France, the USA and the UK; it had been the subject of approximately 100 publications and there were three journals dedicated to it. After Mattei's death, his work was built upon by Theodore Krauss (1864 - 1924) who amplified the number of available treatments, including the introduction of injectable forms of treatment, and modernized production processes. [Wiki]. Scarce book on the subject- OCLC records 6 cc worldwide, with just 2 in the US. ABPC shows no copies at auction these past 30+ years. . Frontis, "C. Mattei". 3 views of human figures, pp. 236 - 237.

Includes a double page color map: 'Dairy Farming in America - Copied from the 9th U.S. Census' measuring approximate ly 10-1/2" x 16" (in color, and fine condition). Presumed 1st edition (copyright page blank and undated but ca. early 1880s). 10-7/8" tall x 8-3/4" wide x 2" thick (quite heavy). Called for errata sheet bound in. 570 pages including Index, plus 4 pages (2 double-sided sheets) of ads. One plate is listed as being at page 551 and is actually bound in at 556. Laid in is a contemporary to the book newsletter printed on blue paper, 4 pages (large sheet folded once, printed both sides, entitled 'Land', which is an ad for 'A Journal for all interested in Landed and House Property', on the front page, an ad for 'The Livestock Journal and Fancier's Gazette' on the last page, and lists books published by this publisher on the middle two pages. It was not until the late 1800s that cattle breeds were developed specifically for dairy purposes. This book was an effort in the late 19th century to encourage local dairying by teaching the methods needed for raising dairy cattle and producing milk, butter and cheese, and doing so in a safe-for-consumption and standardized manner, instead of importing too much product. Also, in an effort to improve the quality of American dairy products and to make them more acceptable abroad, the Bureau of Animal Industry of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) established the Division of Agrostology and the Dairy Division in 1895, and used some of the information first made available in this book, including the effects of forage grasses on the flavor, odor, and quality of milk and milk products.Scientists in the Division of Agrostology studied the effects of forage grasses on the flavor, odor, and quality of milk and milk products. The watercolor drawing on the left depicts different types of pasture grasses.; Color Illustrations; 10-7/8" x 8-3/4"; 570 incl. Index pages .

        Gamla Stockholm.

      Anteckningar ur tryckta och otryckta källor. Stockholm, Central-tryckeriet, 1880-82. 638,(1),XII s. & planscher. Nio häften. Omslagen med riss och nötta ryggar. Det tredje häftet med pappersförlust på främre omslaget. Några av de bakre omslagen med småfläckar. Sista häftet nött och nästan isär i häftningen.. Zetterlund I:14. Originalutgåvan i den form den först såldes. Det sista häftesomslagets baksida gör reklam för originalpärmarna till verket. På andra omslag görs reklam för både "Röda rummet" och "Gillets hemlighet". Häftesomslagen bär den otympliga titeln: "Gamla Stockholm. Dess gator, gränder och torg; folkklasser, typer, personnager, original; dess folknöjen och förlustelseställen; sedvänjor vid högtider och fester; olyckor, eldsvådor, farsoter, tumult; korporationer, skrån, gillen, ordnar; ungdom, dess lekar och skollif; polis, bevakning, belysning; vidare ordlista öfver Stockholms-målet med bångmål, visor, skrock, gåtor; och till slut gatans flora och fauna. Anteckningar ur tryckta och otryckta källor framletade, samlade och utgifna af Claes Lundin och August Strindberg." Detta, det första större kulturhistoriska verk som Strindberg skrev, har liknats vid en förstudie till hans stora "Svenska folket". Det var från början tänkt att Strindberg skulle skriva arbetet själv men uppgiften visade sig honom övermäktig och Claes Lundin kallades in som medhjälpare. Denne kom sedermera att i själva verket skriva merparten av boken. De två författarna hade inte samma åsikter om hur arbetet skulle bedrivas, Strindberg ville skriva underhållande, Lundin var mer grundlig. Lundin gav några år senare ut även "Nya Stockholm", denna gång helt utan Strindbergs inblandning

        Gillets hemlighet.

      Comedi i fyra akter. Stockholm, Central-tryckeriet, 1880. (4),132 s. Häftad. Lätt snedläst och obetydligt nött. I fodrad pappkassett med guldornerad marokängrygg och upphöjda bind. Titelbladet med E. Hillbergs stpl, omslaget med Eric Zachrisons stpl och kassetten med Svante Svedlins guldpräglade pärmexlibris. Dedikation till "Broder Emil Hillberg vänskapsfullt fr. förf.". Zetterlund I:15. Detta Strindbergs 1400-talsdrama om konkurrerande byggmästare och färdigbyggandet av Uppsala domkyrka har lästs som en allegori över Strindbergs position i den nordiska litteraturvärlden. Dramat blev ingen publiksuccé trots en del gillande recensioner, och Strindberg hävdade senare att han skrivit dramat mest för att skapa en roll åt sin hustru. Siri spelade mycket riktigt den kvinnliga huvudrollen. I "Tjänstekvinnans son" skriver Strindberg: "Som man icke går på teatern för att höra filosofi, så föll stycket, tyst och stilla som det kommit, men begrovs under lovsång av en del gamle, som i detsamma sett något mycket skönt, och ett löfte om bättring från den ryslige författaren till Röda rummet". Skådespelaren Emil Hillberg (1852-1929) spelade rollen som Jacques vid uruppförandet av "Gillets hemlighet" på Dramaten 1880. När pjäsen sattes upp på Svenska teatern 26 år senare spelade han rollen som dennes åldrade fader. Strindberg verkar inte ha varit helt nöjd med Hillbergs insats. I ett brev till teaterns direktör Erik af Edholm i samband med ett tänkt återupptagande av pjäsen i november 1880 föreslår han att Hillberg ska bytas ut "och styckets öfverflödiga tyngd aflägsnas derigenom." När det 1884 åter var tal om att sätta upp pjäsen var Strindberg mycket tveksam: "ty jag är numera öfvertygad om att stycket är omöjligt för teatern!". Till den tilltänkta regissören August Lindberg skriver han: "Vill du emellertid hjelpa saken, som ändå är ohjelplig, så stryk, stryk utaf helvete, långa kakor! [...] Och en hufvudsak, som du bestämdt kan arrangera! Låt hela stycket gå i ett raskt tempo. Inga Hillbergska gäspningar!" Hillberg fick emellertid sin revansch genom att göra stor succé som Gert Bokpräntare i "Mäster Olof" året därpå

A great Chester title.Hughes, social reformer and children's writer sought an appointment, which he was given in July 1882, as a county court judge. This brought an end to his involvement in politics, and a move to Chester. He resigned from the Co-operative Union. His work as a judge seems to have been congenial to him although, according to John Telford, ‘his rough and ready justice became a byword for constant reversal on appeal’ (Telford, 10). During the 1880s he wrote four more biographies, including Daniel Macmillan (1882) and David Livingstone (1889). He built himself a house called Uffington, at Dee Hills Park, Chester, to which he moved in October 1885. See ODNB for a full Bio.

        PIANOFORTE SONATAS

      London: Augener & Co., 1880 Three Folio Volumes, 'Special Edition'. Highly embellished bindings with gilt, blue & black stamped decorations on spines & front covers; blind stamped borders on back covers; ornate end-papers. Magnificently ornate & scarce fine binding set of the complete Beethoven piano sonatas. The sonatas are edited by Ernst Pauer, the Austrian pianist, composer & teacher. There is no printed publication date, however the slightly beveled boards & profuse front cover gilt decorations are typical of bindings of the late Victorian period. In any case, the '1891' date from the modest presentation inscription to the flyleaf recto suggests a minimum age. Each volume with gilt text block edges, ornate end-papers & title pages, & a themed index. Vol I also has a tissue guarded fine engraving frontispiece of Beethoven & an eight page set of historical notes. The notation itself is very clear & widely spaced -ideal for reading from a distance. Victorian sheet music bindings are often highly ornate & intricate, but we have never seen anything as embellished or as spectacular as this particular set. Significant portions of the gilt are stamped into the cloth as fine lines, which give the impression of varying shades of gold when viewed from different angles. The central 'shining star' piece on the fronts. is especially effective. Apart from gilt, decorations are also stamped in light-blue & black. It is likely these volumes were issued as a special & very limited edition. A simply exquisite set of Beethoven's Sonatas in wonderfully elaborate Victorian styling in essentially fine condition showing very light use; tight with text block & Pages in fine condition; neat presentation inscription to flyleaf recto repeated on the title pages of Vols.

        Lord Randolph Churchill, inscribed by Churchill to Brigadier-General Simon Fraser

      This is Churchill's first biographic work, concentrating heavily on his father's career in Parliament after 1880. The British first edition was published in two volumes in 1906. In 1907, the publisher issued a one-volume edition, containing the full text of the two volume work (printed on thinner paper). The binding closely resembles that of the first edition of just a year earlier; the binding cloth and shelf appearance are the same except for the absence of the gilt title and coat of arms on the front cover of the one-volume edition. This particular copy bears a lovely and quite interesting five-line inscription in black ink on the half title reading: "To / Simon Fraser / from / Winston S. Churchill / 1908-1922". Brigadier-General Simon Joseph Fraser, 14th Lord Lovat and 3rd Baron Lovat KT, GCVO, KCMG, CB, DSO (1871-1933), was a prominent Scottish Roman Catholic aristocrat, soldier, politician, and one of the largest landowners in Britain. Lord Lovat served with distinction in both the Boer War and the First World War, where he commanded the Highland Mounted Brigade at Gallipoli . He would later serve with Churchill in the Conservative administration of Stanley Baldwin as Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs from 1926 to 1927. Churchill's inscription is an epitaph for his stormy, 15-year tenure as M.P. for the Scottish industrial constituency of Dundee. In 1908, Churchill - still in his mid thirties - was promoted to the Cabinet. At the time, an old rule required that newly appointed Cabinet Ministers had to seek re-election by their constituencies. Unfortunately for Winston, the by-election became a test of confidence in the Liberal government. Forced to defend the Government's policy of the past two years, targeted by vengeful Conservatives, and hounded on the hustings by Suffragettes, Churchill lost his seat. Literally within minutes of his defeat, Churchill received a telegram from Dundee Liberals inviting him to become their candidate. When he did accept the invitation - 72 hours later to the chagrin and consternation of local pride - Churchill wrote to his mother: "It is a life seat and cheap and easy beyond all experience". This was not to be the case. At the time, Churchill was a young lion of the Liberal Party, vexing the British establishment and helping lay the foundations of the modern welfare state. In 1904, he had quit the Conservative Party and joined the Liberals, beginning a dynamic chapter in his political career that saw him champion progressive causes and be branded a traitor to his class - doubtless endearing him to the people of Dundee. Nonetheless, the gap between him and his constituents was acute. Dundee was a predominantly working class constituency - "a dark mass of dirty grey sandstone tenements, punctuated by high chimney stacks and church spires", heavily reliant on the volatile textile trade. In 1922, Churchill lost his seat in a 6-way contest, in which he placed 4th. His party was likewise slaughtered at the polls, winning only 62 seats and becoming insignificant. At the time, the loss seemed like Churchill's political denouement. However, two years later, after losing two by-elections, he won his way back to the House of Commons as an independent. When Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin brought him into his Cabinet as Chancellor of the Exchequer, Churchill turned full circle, becoming once more a Tory, which he would remain for the remaining 40+ years of his long political life. The inscription is distinct and unfaded, though the ink has bled slightly onto the facing blank endpaper. The book itself retains the original, unrestored binding in red cloth with gilt top edge. The binding is tight and square with a lightly sunned spine, darkened spine gilt, and minor wear at extremities. The contents are clean and bright with no spotting and no markings other than the author's inscription. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A17.4, Woods/ICS A8(b), Langworth p.74.

        Das Jahr und seine Kinder (The Year and its Children)

      Dusseldorf: J. v. Breidenbach, (c. 1880's). Folio. 13 ff., plus a 13ff. portfolio of lithographs. Thirteen original ink-and-watercolor illustrations on vellum by Frau Allwine Schroedker for a published nineteenth-centrury calendar. Each leaf shows a poetic quotation in calligraphy under the name of the month, elaborately hand-illuminated in colors and gold. February's child is a golden-haired fairy amid masses of spring flowers. May shows a courting couple in a bower of seasonal blooms. September's golden letters form a gothic arbor, with a young couple climbing to pick grapes. With exquisite workmanship, Frau Schroedker has combined complex interlace and foliage with detailed, realistic flowers, fruit, and figures to make these designs. The colors glow against the vellum. The title illustration shows an allegorical figure of the year: a veiled woman with a globe, with twelve little children playing in the folds of her gown. The vellum sheets, each measuring 11 1/2 by 8 1/4 inches, are very fine, each individually matted, in a specially-made quarter-vellum drop-back box. The accompanying lithograph portfolio of the published work, lacking the months of April, August, and September, is in cloth, decoratively stamped in gold and black, showing light wear and soil.

        [THREE WATERCOLORS SHOWING SCENES OF THE KHANTY PEOPLE, A NORTHERN SIBERIAN TRIBE FROM THE VICINITY OF TOBOLSK, PAINTED TO CELEBRATE THE 300th ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDING OF TOBOLSK AND THE ANNEXATION OF SIBERIA TO RUSSIA]

      Tobolsk. [ca. 1880].. Three watercolors, 7 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches, matted to 13 x 16 inches. Fine. In a blue three-quarter cloth portfolio. A set of three lovely watercolors by Mikhail Stepanovich Znamensky, a prominent 19th-century Siberian artist, writer, historian, archaeologist, and ethnographer. Each is captioned in pencil and all are signed by the artist. The first scene shows two summer tents with three Khanty women seated in or just outside them. One woman holds a child. The second image is a winter snowscape showing a man with three reindeer standing outside a log cabin. The third scene depicts three Khanty people in traditional clothing standing in a dining room, with a Russian official seated on the left; a portrait of the Tsar hangs on the wall in the background and an animal skin is draped on the table. Very well educated as a religious artist, Znamensky was among the elite of Tobolsk and was close to many exiled members of the famous Decemberist revolt of 1825 (Puschin, Yakushkin, and others), as well as the outstanding Russian writer Pyotr Yershov. Znamensky worked as a teacher in several religious and secular colleges in Tobolsk, was a translator of the Tatar language, and also illustrated the literary works of Gogol, Yershov, Goncharov, and Tolstoy. He regularly published his caricatures in the magazines of Saint Petersburg. His main interest, however, was Siberian history and ethnography. Znamensky's essays and stories on Siberian history were regularly published in the local magazines, and several of his books on the subject were published in Tobolsk, Tyumen, and Saint Petersburg. In pursuance of his interest, Znamensky traveled extensively in Siberia, Central Asia, and the northern regions of Asiatic Russia in the 1850s and 1860s, making sketches and paintings of the landscapes and tribes. In 1872 his works were exhibited at the Moscow Polytechnic Exhibition, where they were awarded the silver medal from Moscow University. The present watercolors are from a series of works created to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the founding of Tobolsk and the annexation of Siberia to Russia, which was celebrated in 1885. The artist took a special trip around the towns of the region, the result of which was a unique series of sketches and watercolors. From this body of work an album entitled "From Tobolsk to Obdorsk" was created, specially bound in birch bark. It was comprised of thirty-two images showcasing local life in Tobolsk, Berezov, and Obdorsk, with images of local people, the surrounding area, and historical sketches. The album was exhibited in the Tobolsk Art Gallery in 1889. Later, in 1894, the heir to the Russian throne - the future Nikolai II - visited Tobolsk during his round-the-world trip. He was quite taken with the album, which he acquired for the high price of 800 roubles (per his inscription on the verso of the folder). The album came to the Emperor's library in the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg and, after the Revolution of 1917, became part of the Russian State Library in Moscow where it currently resides. The three watercolors offered here were not part of that album, but are similar stylistically and clearly come from the same series. For example, the image with the three Khanty and the Russian official appears almost exactly in the album, with trivial changes in detail, such as a different color of tablecloth. Znamensky's watercolors weren't published in Russia before the Revolution of 1917. His album "From Tobolsk to Obdorsk" was printed in facsimile for the first time in 2008. His drawings were used, however, as illustrations in the first and only edition of the book by the Italian ethnographer and anthropologist Stefano Sommier, UN' ESTATE IN SIBERIA FRA OSTIACCHI, SAMOIEDI, SIRIENI, TATARI, KIRGHISI e BASKIRI (Florence, 1885). This valuable report of Sommier's travels through Siberia in 188 contains fourteen interesting woodcuts based on Znamensky's watercolors and depicts Samoyeds and Ostyaks resting in their dwellings, riding deer, playing musical instruments, walking at market places, and more. Znamensky's original works can be found in many Russian state institutions.

        A.L.S. Longfellow to noted poet and journalist Charles Kent

      4 pp. Cambridge, Apr. 29, 1880. 12mo. Neatly written letter from Longfellow to Charles Kent (1823-1902), well-known English poet, biographer and journalist, concerning a book written by Kent ("Corona Catholica), and others sent to Longfellow for which Kent had never heard back concerning Longfellow's receipt of the books. He writes: "My Dear Mr. Kent, I hasten wit all speed to thank you for your kind letter and for the "Corona Catholica," both of which reached me safely and are very welcome. But I am troubled by what you say of the other books sent so long ago, your collected Poems, and "Charles Dickens as Reader." They were both received and I wrote to you at the time a letter full of thanks, particularly for the Poems and among the Poems, more particularly for the beautiful lines addressed to me, which I always deeply feel." He goes on to say that he is truly grieved that his letter never reached Kent, with the only consolation being this letter. He also thanks Kent for the "Corona" but states that is "very curious..." and that he does care as much for the "Prophecy of St. Malachi" as Kent does. "But I do care for the versions of your lines in various languages. I have always been much interested in such things, and this is a valuable addition to my little store of linguistic curiosities. Signed in full, "Yours faithfully, Henry W. Longfellow. Superb letter in very good condition.
