        The Boy Preacher or, The Life and Labors of Rev. Thomas Harrison Together with Sketches of the Most Remarkable Revivals in Which He Has Been Engaged

      Printed by James P. Magee and "all Methodist Book Depositories in the United States, 1881. Printed by James P. Magee and "all Methodist Book Depositories in the United States, 1881. Hardcover. Octavo. 240 pp. 7.5'' by 4.5'' Bound in brown/black boards with gold stamping. "The Boy Preacher" is an extremely rare volume of Americana from the late 19th Century. This handsome volume details the work of Reverend Thomas Harrison, one of the "boy preachers" during the great American religious (tent) revivals of that century. Known for their great oratory powers before coming of age they've remained one of the most curious aspects of that period in American religious history. Very few concurrent histories were written of their careers and lives, this being one of the few. Written by a fellow admiring preacher the content of the text is as poetically written as it is informative of the age. | The condition of the volume is Very Good considering its age and rarity. The binding is solid and tight, the boards show minimal signs of age wear, the spine has begun fraying at the topmost and bottomost, but does not come close to obscuring the spine text and remains tight, now protected in a polyester archival cover. There is edge and corner wear present, but not unrepairable and now stopped with the application of the archival cover. There is a single minor stain that has bled through to page 40, but which does not obscure any of the text whatsoever. The text itself is bright and clean with the exception of two former owner names on each successive front free endpapers. No warping whatsoever. Very little fading considering the volume's age. An exceptional, one of a kind volume as pictured.

        Mother Goose or the Old Nursery Rhymes

      London and New York - George Routledge andSons, 1881. London and New York - George Routledge andSons, 1881 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of Mother Goose or the Old Nursery Rhymes with colour illustrations to each page by Kate Greenaway. The familiar figure of Mother Goose is an imaginary author of a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes which are often published as Mother Goose Rhymes. As a character, she appears in one nursery rhyme. Mother Goose is generally depicted in literature and book illustration as an elderly country woman in a tall hat and shawl, a costume identical to the peasant costume worn in Wales in the early 20th century, but is sometimes depicted as a goose (usually wearing a bonnet). Catherine Greenaway (1846 - 1901), known as Kate Greenaway, was an English children's book illustrator and writer. She studied at what is now the Royal College of Art in London, which at that time had a separate section for women, and was headed by Richard Burchett. Her first book, Under the Window (1879), a collection of simple, perfectly idyllic verses about children, was a bestseller. Greenaway's paintings were reproduced by chromoxylography, by which the colours were printed from hand-engraved wood blocks by the firm of Edmund Evans. Through the 1880s and 1890s, her only rivals in popularity in children's book illustration were Walter Crane and Randolph Caldecott. With bookseller's label to front pastedown and with an ink inscription dated 1881 to front free endpaper. Condition: Rebacked in a cloth binding with original buckram boards. Externally, with slightwear to extremities and marks to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Bright but with handling marks to pages and the odd slight marginal tidemark. With previous repairs tosome pages where there has been slight loss and closed tears. With previous owner's initial ink stamp torear endpaper. Overall: GOOD.

        Lawrence-Cesnola Collection. Cyprus Antiquities, excavated .1876-1879

      - London: W. Holmes and Son, 1881. Oblong small folio. (11 x 14 1/2 inches). Letterpress title mounted on verso of the front free endpaper (as issued), 50 letterpress text leaves mounted on the verso of plates. 60 albumen photographs (1 photograph of a map, 59 photographs of objects in the collection). Contemporary red pebble grained morocco, upper cover elaborately bordered in gilt and blind and titled in gilt in the central panel, spine with raised bands in six compartments, tooled in gilt on either side of each band, metal clasp and latch, silk moire endpapers. Scarce photographically illustrated catalogue of the Cesnola Collection, the most significant collection of Cypriot antiquities ever assembled. "The story of the Cesnola Collection is almost as colorful as that of its creator, Luigi Palma di Cesnola. After a military career in both Europe and the American Civil War, Cesnola was appointed American consul in Cyprus in 1865. During the next few years, he amassed an unrivalled collection of Cypriot antiquities through extensive excavations and by purchase. The whole enterprise was funded from his own resources. At the time, a number of antiquarians from various European countries were beginning to collect Cypriot antiquities, but they were soon outmatched by Cesnola, who came to dominate the scene in Cyprus. Cesnola saw his work as rivalling that of Heinrich Schliemann at Troy and intended his discoveries on Cyprus to provide important evidence for the so-called missing link between the biblical and classical worlds. The final destination of the Cesnola Collection was for a long time uncertain. In 1870, negotiations were held first with Napoleon III of France, who wished to acquire the entire collection for the Musée du Louvre in Paris, then with Russian officials for their possible transfer to the State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg. But soon afterward, Cesnola shipped the collection to London, where its exhibition aroused considerable public interest. It was at this point that the newly founded Metropolitan Museum of Art intervened and acquired the bulk of the collection for New York. The purchase was funded by public subscription with several leading business tycoons making substantial contributions. Cesnola accompanied his collection back to New York and devoted himself to supervising the work on its installation and publication. In 1877, he accepted a place on the Museum's board of trustees and served as its first director from 1879 until his death in 1904. The Cesnola Collection remains a wonderful storehouse of ancient art and artifact, and it is by far the most important and comprehensive collection of Cypriot material in the Western Hemisphere. The objects illustrate the unique character of Cypriot art and highlight the exotic blend of Greek, Near Eastern, and Egyptian influences in Cyprus throughout antiquity" (Metropolitan Museum website). This early photographically illustrated catalogue of the collection is quite scarce, with OCLC locating but 12 copies. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Compiled Laws of Kansas, 1881: Being a Compilation of All the Laws...

      1881. 1881 Compilation of the Laws of Kansas [Kansas]. Dassler, C.F.W. [b. 1852], Compiler. Compiled Laws of Kansas, 1881: Being a Compilation of All the Laws of a General Nature Based Upon the General Statutes of 1868 (embracing all of Said Statutes Still in Force) Together with Subsequent Enactments, Including the Session Laws of 1881, With References to Decisions.

        Works, Part Set of 14 Volumes, Uniformly Bound in Half-Leather

      Chatto & Windus, London 1881 - Handsome collection of early or first British printings ranging from 1881 to 1897. Bound in tan calf-leather, half-leather with salmon cloth, spine with curly gilt in compartments, double leather gilt title labels in brown/black, marbled endpapers with period private engraved bookplates. Top edges gilt. The whole in excellent tight wear-free condition, the leather hinges are supple and strong and of the highest quality for permanence, with no signs of splitting or powdering. Edges rubbed at spine ends, leather has a whispery feel. The books are a collection of first or very early printings that match exactly with other firsts from Chatto & Windus in which all the engraved illustrations, frontis pieces and tissue guards are true to the original states. Because these volumes are bound without adverts or tail-pieces, and mostly with the "other titles" lists omited, there is no easy way of knowing the edition states. Per the title page dates, most are within the first year of publication. "The Prince and the Pauper" contains the word "fiends" on page 8, which would suggest a first printing. Titles containing correct original year dates are: Prince and the Pauper (1881), The Innocents Abroad (1881), A tramp Abroad (1880), A Yankee at the Court of King Arthur (1889), The America Claimant (1892), Life on the Mississippi (1883), Tom Sawyer, Detective (1897), The £1,000,000 Bank-Note and other new stories (1893), Pudd'nhead Wilson (1894), Tom Sawyer Abroad (1894), and then four volumes in "New Edition" printings: Roughing it and the Innocents at Home (1898), The Gilded Age (1885), Stolen White Elephant (1883), and More Trams Abroad, the Second edition from 1897. There are many "uniform" sets of this author's work available, here is an offering that gets close to the original and will impress on the bookshelf. Lacking some of the important titles such as Huckleberry Finn, this collection when originally bound in leather had 16 volumes, now 14. Price includes extra for worldwide air priority shipping, which is worth a fair bit for this heavy set. 8vo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
