        Lord Stanley engraving Sir Frederick Arthur, 1st Baron Stanley of Preston, 16th Earl of Derby (Lord Stanley of Preston) (1841-1908)

      London : published by Morris & Co. 392 Strand W.C. , [1880]. 1st Edition. No binding. Good+. TRULY RARE. WE CAN FIND NO OTHER COPIES OF THIS ENGRAVING. No date but probably circa 1880 when he would be about 39 years old. [Frederick Arthur Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby] "Lord Stanley" engraving London published by Morris & Co. 392 Strand W.C. Drawn by C.W. Walton. Paper size is 17 1/2"" x 23 5/8". Plate mark size is 10 1/2" x 13". Image size is 5" x 7". Signature Imprint: Lord Stanley ( [facsimile signature] ) Stanley family motto, "Sans Changer" or without changing. Some soiling overall on paper (but not on actual image) and top left corner bent and dark marks. Bottom left corner with darker mark and small bent corner. Overall condition is good+. In 1892, this Lord Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby gave a treasured national icon Ñ the Stanley Cup to symbolize hockey Championship in Canada. It is the same Stanley Cup the National Hockey League competes for each year now. He was the 6th Governor General of Canada., National Portrait Gallery, London has only one similar engraving of Lord Stanley where he is older and their different Lord Stanley engraving is printed later. , "There are 13 portrait lithographs by the artist (Walton) in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London. Many of the works he produced were of contemporary figures, including Francis Thomas de Grey Cowper, Seventh Earl Cowper (1834 -1905), who became Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and Charlotte Anne Montagu-Douglas-Scott (née Thynne), Duchess of Buccleuch (1811-1895), who served as Mistress of the Robes to Queen Victoria. Some of Walton's portraits were used to illustrate books. It seems that many of his earlier works were published by the firm of Morris & Co., 392 Strand, but he later published his own works from 103, Shaftesbury Avenue. Interestingly, a lithograph by Walton of Philip William Skynner Miles in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery was published by 'Morris, Walton & Co', so it seems he may have briefly been in partnership with Morris & Co." quoted from Philippa Martin, Curator, Information and Research (Historical) UK Government Art Collection

        Garfield’s signed copy of the 1880 “Report of the Commissioners of Fisheries of Maryland” – the year he was elected President

      The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below: Book, “Report of the Commissioners of Fisheries of Maryland January, 1880,” soft cover, 78 pages plus 269 page Appendix “Development of the American Oyster,”, 5.5” x 9”. Annapolis: Maryland Republican Print., 1880. Signed “J.A. Garfield” on the cover. Illustrated with charts and diagrams including ten plates “Development of the Oyster.” Attached to the last page is a fold-out 21.5” x 36.5” United States Coast Survey color map, “Coast Chart / Chesapeake Bay” (slight tear). Light soiling at the top and right edges of the cover. Foxing on the fore-edge. Housed in a custom blue-cloth covered clamshell case with “Report of the / Commissioners / of Fisheries / of Maryland” stamped in gilt on a blue leather label at the top of the spine and, on lower portion, also in gilt, “James Garfield’s / Signed Copy / 1880.” On January 13, 1880, the month this report was issued, U.S. Representative James A. Garfield was elected to the U.S. Senate for the term beginning March 4, 1881. On November 2, 1880, Garfield was elected President. At that moment he was a member of the House of Representatives, Senator-elect, and President-elect. On November 8th, he resigned from the House and on December 23rd, after the Electoral College met, he declined his January 1880 election to the Senate. On March 4, 1881, he was inaugurated President.

        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.

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
