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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(...) Billroth, N. Weiss und Wölfler stellten als zweite Folge der totalen Exstirpation der Thyreoidea die Tetanie fest. Auch hier ist zu bemerken, daß krampfartige Erscheinungen nach Entfernung der Drüse bereits früher von Ch. Jong (1818) und C.M. Langenbeck (1833) berichtet worden waren. Aus diesen Erfahrungen erwuchs die Erkenntnis, daß nur die teilweise Entfernung der Drüse zulässig ist und haben sich dieser Einschränkung entsprechend die gegenwärtig üblichen Kropfoperationsmethoden: die intrakapsuläre Entfernung der Knopfknoten nach Socin, das Evidement der letzteren nach Kocher, die Resektion des Kropfes nach Mikulicz und Kocher herausgebildet."

        American Clergy. Vol. 1 [cover title]

      N.p. 1880 - Photograph album containing 17 mounted and two loose albumen prints of clergymen. 14 are captioned images of various American Episcopal State Bishops, two are of lesser divines, two are unidentified, and one, Henry Forrester, appears in non-clerical dress in a photo bearing the stamp of a Las Vegas photographer. 1 vols. The photographs measure 5-1/2 x 4 inches, and are mounted on pages 9-3/4 x 7-1/2 inches. Original Photographs of 19th Century American Clergymen. Each of the mounted photographs is enclosed with a decorative ink border, and hand-lettered caption showing the individual's name and office. Among these are: Benjamin B. Smith, Bishop of Kentucky, 1832--; John Williams, Bishop of Connecticut, 1851--; Horatio Potter, Bishop of New York, 1854--; William H. Odenheimer, Bishop of New Jersey, 1859-1879; Alfred Lee, Bishop of Delaware, 1841--; William B. Stevens, Bishop of Pennsylvania, 1862--; Joseph C. Talbot, Bishop of Indiana, 1860--; Daniel S. Tuttle, Bishop of Utah, 1867--; Benjamin H. Paddock, Bishop of Massachusetts, 1873--; William H. Hare, Bishop of Niobrara [Southern Dakotas], 1873--; and others. Most are shown in full-length images, and all are in clerical garb.The album itself bears a London stationer's label on the rear pastedown, and is less than half full, despite the "Vol. 1" on the cover. It would be interesting to know the genesis of this effort, which was obviously undertaken with much thought and care.

        Cabinet photograph of Samuel Adjai Crowther, Former Slave and First African Bishop of the Anglican Church

      London: Elliott & Fry, 1880. Fine. Cabinet card. Measuring 4.25" x 6.5". Photographer's stamp on both front and back. Slight spotting, possibly from the negative, else about fine. Full-length portrait of the stern looking clergyman, dressed in clerical garb and holding a book. Crowther's life was remarkable. He was captured in West Africa in 1821 and sold to Portuguese slave traders, whose ship was then interdicted by the British Navy. He was liberated in Freetown where he was taken in by the Church Missionary Society. He married Asano Susan, who had been imprisoned on board the same ship as Crowther. He learned English and displayed an enthusiasm for education, traveled to London for training, where he showed a remarkable aptitude for languages. In 1841 he was recruited for the Niger Expedition of James F. Schon. After the expedition he trained as a minister and was ordained. He returned to West Africa where he established a mission and produced several grammars and dictionaries of African languages, and translated a substantial portion of the Bible into Yoruba. In 1853 he accompanied Macgregor Laird's expedition to the Niger and Tshadda Rivers. In 1864 he was consecrated Bishop of the Niger, and the first black African bishop in the Anglican Church. At the same year he received a Doctorate of Divinity from Oxford.

        The Sea Fogs - 1st Edition/1st Printing

      Nawakum Press. Fine+. First Edition; First Printing. A handsome first edition/first printing in fine condition. The book is 32 pages and measures 6 -1/4 by 10-3/4 inches. The typeface is Ehrhardt, with Isadora for display. Patrick Reagh cast the type and printed the book on Zerkall Frankfurt at his shop in Sebastopol, California. Illustrations printed letterpress, with color triptych printed digitally at Black Cat Studio. The binding and slipcases were produced by Lisa Van Pelt. The Sea Fogs is published in one state, in an edition of 55 slipcased copies, each numbered and signed by the artist. ; 'The Sea Fogs' is the tenth of fourteen episodes - narratives, character sketches, and extended moments - that make up Scottish novelist, essayist, and poet Robert Louis Stevenson's The Silverado Squatters. It is drawn from Stevenson's journal, which he kept while on a two-month stay on Mount St. Helena, at the head of the Napa Valley in California. He had come to the area for his honeymoon in 1880, and for his health as well, hoping to get away from the damp, coastal climate of San Francisco. Unable to afford the ten dollars a week for a room at the local hotel, he and his bride instead “squatted” an old bunkhouse, at an abandoned silver mine on the side of the mountain. On a fine June morning Stevenson found himself awakening to, and then writing about, a local natural occurrence- fogs drawn inland from the Pacific Ocean. Stevenson scholar Roger G. Swearingen, through his introduction, shares with the reader just how a younger Stevenson, surrendering himself completely to this highly personal story, was fully in command of his art long before penning his most famous works. And how this wonderful, self contained, stand-alone piece is among Stevenson's finest of this kind; 32 pages; Signed by Author .

        LIFE OF WILLIAM BLAKE.

      - With selections from his poems and other writings. A New and Enlarged Edition illustrated from Blake\rquote s own Works. With additional Letters and a Memoir of the Author. In two volumes. Pp. xxiv+432(last colophon)+xii+384(last colophon), frontispiece portrait to both volumes, plus 62 plates (engravings, monochromes, and woodcuts, one double page, 3 with tissue guards), text illustrations (2 full page), descriptive catalogue, index; later (but not recent) binding by De Coverly & Sons in half dark blue morocco, spines lettered and ruled in gilt compartments between raised bands, blue/grey cloth boards; a.e.g.; marbled endpapers; with the original pictorial dust wrapper (a trifle cropped) bound in at front of Volume I; small surface graze at foot of upper pastedown Volume I, a couple of tiny edge chips or splits, some light offsetting from the illustrations, a little light foxing (mainly outer leaves) and occasional slight soiling; Macmillan and Co., London, 1880. Second edition. Bentley, \i Blake Books 1680B. *First published in 1863, Gilchrist's magnum opus became the foundation for Blake study. Volume II, edited by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, is a compilation of Blake's poetry, prose, and art, including reproductions of illustrations from public and private collections and from his illuminated books. Gilchrist spent years compiling the material and interviewing Blake's surviving friends. Following his sudden death in 1861, the book was completed by his widow, Anne Gilchrist, with assistance from the Rossetti brothers. The illustrations include prints from Blake's \i Virgil woodblocks and from electrotypes made from the original copperplates of the\i Songs of Innocence and of Experience . The second edition is considered more desirable, because it contains revisions and additional material, including 34 new letters from Blake to William Hayley, and some new illustrations, with some of the plates on India paper. 1500 copies were printed (five hundred fewer than the first edition). The striking dust wrapper design (which also featured on the original boards, not retained in this set) is by Frederic Shields (1833-1911), an associate of the Pre-Raphaelites and a friend of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Suggested by Rossetti, and based on a sketch [by Blake's brother Robert] in Blake's \i Notebook (then in Rossetti's possession), with a figure from one of Blake\rquote s designs for Young's \i Night Thoughts on the back panel, it is an early example of Art Nouveau design - and a scarce early dust wrapper. The binder of this set, Roger de Coverly (1831-1914) began his career as an apprentice at Zaehnsdorf\rquote s, then worked for J. & J. Leighton before establishing his own workshop. T. J. Cobden-Sanderson (later of the Doves Press and bindery) served a short apprenticeship with De Coverley in the mid-1880s. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A near fine, if not the finest surviving copy of one of the great rarities of nineteenth-century literature. Workers in the Dawn, described by Sutherland as having the 'melodramatic excesses of a first novel', centres on the wretched life of Arthur Golding and his destructive relationship with two women, Helen Norman, a clergyman's daughter, and Carrie Mitchell, a young prostitute. Arthur takes pity on the 'whoring and brandy-drinking' Carrie and marries her in an attempt to cure her ways. He fails miserably and flees to America seeking a melodramatic end by hurling himself into Niagara Falls screaming 'Helen! Helen!'. Loosely inserted is a typed unpriced catalogue description of this set by the New York dealer James F. Drake, Inc.
