MENARY, Miss Mary I.J.
Gold Hill, Nevada, 1881. Small quarto (about 7 ½" x 9 ½"). Quarter red sheep and marbled paper covered boards. Owner's name on front free endpaper: "Miss Mary I. J. Menary, Gold Hill, Nevada. August 18th, 1881." The cover is heavily worn, textblock is reasonably sound, with some inserted leaves very edgeworn and marginally toned. Holograph manuscript in ink in the same legible hand throughout. The first 78 pages are comprised of poetry, followed by 38 blank pages, and thereafter (counting material on various loose leaves of paper laid in) about 20 pages of prose. The poetry is much concerned with death, and appears to be in large part copied, as well as the prose piece "Pledge with Wine" by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Also laid in is a small heartfelt three-page memorial in her hand for the late James Livingston, dated Gold Hill, Jan. 13th, 1889. Gold Hill was incorporated in 1862. It enjoyed prosperity generated by the Comstock Lode from 1868-1888, and is now a ghost town. An interesting look into the mind of a literate woman in a Gold Rush town. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

HOLMES, Oliver Wendell
Printed at the Riverside Press, Cambridge, 1881. First edition. Printed wrappers. 39,18pp. Chips to the corners of the first several leaves, and general wear, an about very good copy. Inscribed by Chadwick: "Dr. Weir Mitchell with regards of James R. Chadwick." With S. Weir Mitchell's ownership stamp on the front wrap and title page. Chadwick's report is paginated separately from the Holmes *Address*. Like Oliver Wendell Holmes, Silas Weir Mitchell was both a distinguished physician and a successful literary figure, and Blanck's *Bibliography of American Literature* lists both non-fiction and fiction titles by him. As a doctor he was known both for his work on gunshot wounds and for his work on nervous diseases, both studies made possible by the abundance of cases during the American Civil War. He was Charlotte Perkins Gilman's doctor and his prescription to her for the rest cure that he pioneered provided the idea for *The Yellow Wallpaper*. He also treated Edith Wharton for nervous affliction. Among Mitchell's notable fiction, he is remembered for historical novels such as *Hugh Wynne, Free Quaker*, and the children's tale *The Wonderful Stories of Fuz-Buz the Fly*.

Individual photographs could be ordered from these catalogues, while for customers who needed illustrations of particular themes, separate lists were available of photographs selected from the existing stock to meet their needs. In 1881 these specialized lists included 'Old-Half timbered and Stone Mansion' and 'Old and modern Queen Anne Residences, Schools etc.' and over the next 20 years many more selections would be available including 'Town and Country Houses and Mercantile Buildings', 'England's Homes: Blenheim, Hatfield, Haddon, Hardwicke [sic] etc.' and several series of furniture and woodwork' (Nicholas Cooper, The Photography of Bedford Lemere & Co. (Swindon, English Heritage, 2011, p.15).' This set was presumably produced for the French speaking market with all images in this set identified on a list provided with this collection. The images present almost exclusively country house interiors focusing on the main rooms of the house, staircases, paneling, etc. Making cyanotype copy prints, from a series of reference or 'master' prints to compile a catalogue would have been an econo … [Click Below for Full Description]

DELL, Ethel M.
1881. A collection of twenty-one novels by Dell, nearly all Inscribed to her close friend, the childhood nurse of her adopted niece with whom she shared a home for many years. Ethel Mary Dell (1881-1939) was a popular romance novelist in the early part of the 20th Century. Born in 1881 to a middle class English family, she led a quiet, ordinary life, being very shy and retiring in nature. Although introverted, she had a lively imagination and began writing stories, and getting them published in popular magazines, at a young age. Her first novel, *The Way of an Eagle*, was published in 1911 and was an immediate success. She continued writing popular romance novels until her death in 1939. Many of her works, including several here, were turned into silent films in the 1910s and 1920s. Dell's extraordinary popularity can be difficult for today's readers to appreciate but her influence is reflected in the writings of several authors with whom they would be more familiar. For example, the monologues of James Joyce's character Gerty MacDowell in Ulysses are written in the style of Dell's novels. P.G. Wodehouse created a character in his famous Jeeves and Wooster series based on Dell: "Rosie M. Banks," and in a separate short story he also had a similar character named "Leila M. Pinkney." Both characters are authors of romance novels and explicitly based on Dell. The protagonist of George Orwell's Keep the Aspidistra Flying frequently mentions Dell. In these instances both Orwell and Wodehouse were critical of Dell and exhibited the tendency of writers and artists of every age to … [Click Below for Full Description]

William Shakespeare; R.N. Hudson [Ed
Very Good. Item #6420 Boston: Dana Estes & Company, 1881. Revised Edition with Additional Notes. Octavo; Vol I lxxii + 450pp; Vols II-XI from 378 to 579pp; Vol XII ccclvii + 240pp. In honey-brown half leather. Spine labels in crimson and black, with gilt lettering, rules, and ornaments. Boards and endpapers in lithographic marbling. At least one engraved illustration for each play, with additional biographical and allegorical engravings; all tissue guards in place. Top edge of textblocks gilded. Minimal scuffing and nicks to leather spines, joints, and corners. Small flake lost from black spine label of Vol V. Textblocks unmarred and unmarked, and many pages unopened, suggesting an inert life as shelf-candy.Rev. Henry Norman Hudson (1814-1886) was an eminent biographer, public lecturer, and general popularizer of Shakespeare in his day. The sequence of works in this widely distributed edition is approximately Comedies, Histories, Tragedies, but with some curious jumbling: Macbeth falls between The Comedy of Errors and King John. Volume XII places the Poems and Sonnets after 357 discursive pages of background, biography, and literary history, which is probably why this volume has the most unopened pages. Still, for all its middlebrow DNA, a neatly handsome and genuinely usable edition.

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE] EDDY, Mary B[aker] Glover
Dr. Asa G. Eddy, 1881. Third Edition. A key early edition of the foundation work of Christian Science, first published in 1875 and continually revised throughout the author's lifetime. According to the timeline of Science & Health on the Mary Baker Eddy Library website, this Third Edition was the first to be published in two volumes, and the first to be decorated with the faith's iconic Crown and Cross seal. This source also mentions that, beginning with this edition and through the fifteenth, Eddy begins refering to God "... in the feminine gender as She and Her in the chapter 'Creation.'" Not mentioned in the Library's timeline is that this was the first appearance of the enlarged chapter on "Demonology," in which Mrs. Eddy directly attacked "malicious animal magnetism" and the activities of her expelled former disciple Daniel Spofford, who a year later would find himself at the center of the celebrated Salem Witchcraft Trial of 1878. GROLIER AMERICAN 78 [the 1875 edition]; HOWES E42. Two octavo volumes (19cm). Blue cloth, lettered in gilt on spines, with gilt device to each front cover; i-[xiv],6-270+214,[2]pp (publisher's catalog)]; engraved frontispiece in Vol. 1.

Easily Near Fine; housed in a custom leather-and-cloth slipcase and individual chemises, also Near Fine.

"lifting ethereal hands / Against all treacherous demons of the dark!". Manuscript poem by the American poet Paul Hamilton Hayne (1830-1886) on the assassination of President Garfield. "After the death in 1870 of William Gilmore Simms, an old friend and mentor, Hayne became the chief literary spokesman for the South, an unofficial postwar laureate for the late Confederacy" (ANB). Hayne composed this poem after the attack on President James A. Garfield by Charles J. Guiteau at the Washington railroad station on 2 July 1881. Originally titled "The President's (Unseen) Company" with the subtitle "The Prayers of the People will not let the old Soldier die!", and dedicated to Mrs. Garfield, the poem was re-titled by the editor and published as "The Unseen Host." The poem, in three stanzas of six, five, and six verses, reads in part: "Angels are these, born on the breath of prayer! ... / For him through all the land, fervent and sweet, / What prayers oh! Christ, have risen to kiss Thy feet! / No marvel then a Spritiual Concourse stands / Beside his bed, lifting ethereal hands / Against all treacherous demons of the dark!... / With mystic wings they fan h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Smith, Julia E[velina] and Hannah H[adassah].
Hartford, Conn: Press of the Case, Lockwood & Brainard Company, 1881. Hartford, Conn: Press of the Case, Lockwood & Brainard Company, 1881 First edition of this rare work by Julia Evelina Smith (1792-1886), a suffragist and the first woman to publish her own complete translation of the Bible. Julia's sister, the suffragist Abby Hadassah Smith (1797-1879), was the original collector of the poems, which were written by their mother Hannah Hadassah Smith (1767–1850). Some of the poems collected here were written by Hannah in Italian and translated by Julia. Publisher's purple cloth lettered in gilt (cover title: Mother's Poems). Some rubbing to spine and a bit of soiling to cloth. Green endpapers. Twelvemo. Front free endpaper coming loose. Contemporary pencil signature on preliminary blank and a second pencil signature on front free endpaper of "Pamela Hale," possibly the Washington State businesswoman and educator Pamela Case Hale (1834-1915). A bit of foxing and some light toning to pages, but overall a very good, clean, and tight copy of a rare book edited by the first woman to completely translate the Bible into English. In 1876, Julia and Abby Smith independently funded the publication of their edition of the Bible, which Julia had translated over the course of eight years with a particular attention toward literalism. The edition was significant in part because it was one of the most easily accessible contemporary Bible translations in English until the publication of the British Revised Version in 1881; it now remains a milestone in women's history.

BONAPARTE-WYSE, William Charles
L. W. N. Keys, Plymouth, 1881. An inscribed copy of this rare and unusual provincial publication, in original wrappers and with wide margins, the half-title bearing ‘With the author’s compliments’. The poem was written on the setting up of the Transylvanian principalities as an independent kingdom at the Treaty of Berlin, and the coronation of Carol the First in May 1881. OCLC gives only three copies (NYPL, Dublin and BL), to which the CCFr adds only one copy in France (Montpellier). William Charles Bonaparte-Wyse (1826–92), son of the Politician Thomas Wyse and Letizia Bonaparte, and grandson of Lucien Bonaparte, was a curious mixture of many cultures: the only Irish member of the Felibrige, he wrote in Provencal, as well as in English. Born in Waterford, he became a captain in the Waterford Artillery and spent much of his working life in the army. As a young man he travelled in the south of Europe, and while at Avignon was inspired by the work of the Félibres, who claim descent from the ancient troubadours of Provence. He joined the society and became an impassioned student of the language, and remained the only Irish, and indeed the only foreign-born member of the society. He befriended Frederic Mistral, poet and lexicographer of Occitan, and later recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature. Bonaparte-Wyse wrote a series of lyrics and sonnets in French, English, and the Provençal branch of Occitan. Perhaps his most well-received work was ‘Li Parpaioun Blu’, published in 1868, with a foreword by Mistral. He presided over the great félibréennes festivals of Forcalquier in … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Garfield, James; Chester A. Arthur; Benjamin Harrison; et. al.]
Washington DC: , May 6, 1881. 8vo. Expertly rebound in brown leather, preserved original gilt leather title; pages bear mild soiling at margins but otherwise clean; housed in custom slipcase bound in red cloth.This album features a rare signature from Garfield during his tenure as sitting president: "James Garfield, May 6, 1881" is on the first leaf. Following leaves feature the signature of Garfield's Vice President (and future President) Chester A. Arthur and over 100 additional autographs from Garfield's cabinet, Senators, and Congressmen. The autograph album is a historically significant collection from one of the shortest presidencies in American history. Taking office on March 4th, 1881, Garfield was shot months later on July 2nd, making any and all items signed by Garfield during his presidency scarce and desirable. Garfield's signature is dated to May 6th, a vital historical moment in which Garfield was in the midst of a heated conflict with powerful New York Senator Roscoe Conkling over Garfield's choices for federal office positions in New York. Their animosity resulted in nationwide critiques of Garfield and Conkling's standstill, captured by that day's newspaper headline asking, "Why not lock up Garfield and Conkling in a small room and let them fight this thing out?" (Mount Vernon Democratic Banner, May 6th, 1881). Conkling was a powerful politician supported by Ulysses S. Grant and a mentor to Chester A. Arthur, whom Conkling unsuccessfully advised to decline Garfield's vice presidency. Immediately after Garfield's inauguration, Conkling presented a list of me … [Click Below for Full Description]
