        Mémoires.

      Firmin Didot 1881 - Paris, Firmin Didot, 1881. Petit in 4 de XIII-789pp., (erreur de pagination sans aucun manque), reliure en pleine basane fauve mouchetée de l'époque, exécutée par Wells à Winchester, dos lisse orné de doubles filets dorés, de fleurons losangés dorés, de fers dorés, de frises dorées, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, titre doré, épidermure de quelques centimètres sur un plat, 7 lignes manuscrites à l'encre noire sur la seconde page de garde indiquant la victoire à un prix au Winchester collège en 1895, frise d'encadrement dorée sur les plats, tranches marbrées, 4 chromolithographies et de nombreuses gravures sur bois, nouvelle edition établie sur un manuscrit ayant appartenu à Diane De Poitiers, bon et bel exemplaire. Les Mémoires de Philippe de Commynes (I447?-1511) représentent le meilleur de l'Historiographie Française du XVème siècle et une source de première importance pour la compréhension de la politique Française et Européenne de la seconde moitié du XVème siècle. L'histoire la plus récente a en outre fait noter à quel point cette oeuvre a eu une influence considérable sur des penseurs politiques tels que Guichardin, Machiavel et Bodin et surtout a mis en évidence que De Commynes est un scrutateur eclairé du passage névralgique entre le Haut Moyen-âge et l'époque moderne naissante. Ses ''Mémoires'' couvrent les règnes des Rois Louis XI et Charles VIII. Ses jugements sont d'une remarquable impartialité, mais en tant que serviteur de Louis XI ses appréciations sont celles que l'on peut en attendre: face aux actes les plus révoltants, les perfidies, les trahisons, les crimes mêmes, sa réaction est sans indignation, rapportant ces faits et ces actes sans emphases et froidement, seulement envisagés comme moyen de succès, et jugés par leurs resultats seulement en dehors de toute considération morale et conception éthique. Texte historique essentiel et significatif des XVème et XVIème siècles. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        CRONACA BIZANTINA. Periodico letterario, sociale, artistico. Si pubblica due volte al mese.

      Angelo Sommaruga 1881-1885 In folio (mm. 460x320), mz. pelle coeva, ogni numero di pp. 8-12, stampa a due colori con bellissimi capilettera e fregi nel t. Di questo mitico periodico letterario romano offriamo "tutto il pubblicato" - dall?editore Angelo Sommaruga - in 90 fascicoli: dal n. 1, Anno I, 15 giugno 1881 al n. 6, Anno V, 16 marzo 1885. Vi è compreso il n. 12 del 16 giugno 1884, sequestrato per la ?Proposta ai Parlamenti per un sovrano costituzionale modello? (dal "Libro delle Bizzarrie" di Carlo Dossi). ?La "Cronaca" diede il posto d?onore al Carducci e il suo nome era una delle massime attrazioni del periodico. I poeti che vi pubblicarono versi una o parecchie volte furono: Guerrini, Boito, D?Annunzio, Salvadori, Marradi, Pascarella, Milelli, la Contessa Clara, Pascoli (per una breve collaborazione) e pochi altri. Novelle e bozzetti e prose vi pubblicarono il Verga, il Capuana, il De Amicis, la Serao, lo Scarfoglio, il Sommaruga medesimo. Scritti di varia umanità introdussero nella "Bizantina" gli scrittori più in voga e quelli che promettevano: il Guerrini, il Nencioni, il Chiarini, il Lessona, il Pica, il Di Giacomo. Sono in ogni numero della Cronaca articoli mondani, atti a destare l?interesse delle belle signore e dei giovani galanti e molti di questi articoli scrisse Matilde Serao che nel 1885 doveva sposare Edoardo Scarfoglio. La vita della "Cronaca" comunque fu essenzialmente legata alla fortuna di Angelo Sommaruga e vale per la bellezza dell?edizione, per la scelta di nome e di scritti, ordinata allo scopo del successo editoriale. Il 3 maggio 1885 la Cronaca risorge fondendosi con la ?Domenica Letteraria? che però dà il titolo maggiore al giornale: e finisce col n. 28 del 7 novembre. Quindi risorge il 15 dicembre 1885, e questa volta diretta da Gabriele D?Annunzio. Ha come sottotitolo ?Domenica Letteraria?. Ma parlare di questa nuova ?Cronaca Bizantina? non occorre. L?età eroica è quella sommarughiana?. Così Francesco Flora su ?Pegaso?, dicembre 1930, pp. 680-98. Solo i primi due e l?ultimo numero con antichi restauri per strappi; uniformi arross. su alc. pagg., altrim. esemplare ben conservato.

        The ROUND-ROBIN SERIES. [Complete in 16 volumes, plus one]

      1881. Boston: James R. Osgood & Company, 1881-1883. Original grey-green cloth decorated in brown. 16+1 vols. First Editions. In 1876, Roberts Brothers of Boston had initiated the "No Name Series" of books, original fiction and verse published with the authorship kept anonymous; James R. Osgood, also of Boston, responded with this "Round-Robin Series," even imitating the former's binding with the same gilt band on each spine:~The names of the writers will be withheld from public announcement, that each novel may depend for its success on its own unaided merit, and its appeal to the curiosity and analysis of its readers. [from the endpaper ads]~The "No Name Series" lasted for 37 volumes over twelve years; the "Round-Robin Series" lasted for 16 volumes within three years -- three years during which Osgood was losing a battle for survival.~More than half of the authors (since identified) turned out to be women. The authors include John Esten Cooke (FANCHETTE), Arlo Bates (PATTY'S PERVERSITIES), Frank Stockton's sister Louise Stockton (DOROTHEA), and most notable are two novels by the Southern writer J. Maurice Thompson (A TALLAHASSEE GIRL and HIS SECOND CAMPAIGN).~This set includes all sixteen of the "Round-Robin" issued by Osgood. In 1885 Osgood went under (for the second time), and his business was picked up his two young partners, the Ticknor brothers. In 1887 Ticknor and Company issued one more first edition as a volume in the "Round-Robin" series -- THE STRIKE IN THE B--- MILL [by Charles Benjamin] -- a virulent anti-labor novel, in which the strikers are presented as deluded fools (a highly-sought title in the field of radical literature); this copy is inscribed (but of course not signed) by the author, "To F. B. Greene with kind regards of the Author, whom he must not 'give away'." This book is in the same binding as the earlier sixteen, except for the absence of the JRO monogram.~This is a very tough series to collect in desirable condition. Most of the volumes (including the two Thompsons) are in fine condition; the others are near-fine, with minor rubbing. Blanck 19998 ("A" endpaper ads) & 20000 (both Thompson); also see Aubrey Starke's monograph on the "No Name" and "Round-Robin" series (though it mistakenly cites the 1887 volume as published by Houghton Mifflin, which Ticknor later became).

        Die Uberschatzung Lessing's und dessen Anwaltschaft fur die Juden [The Overvaluation of Lessing and his Advocacy of the Jews]

      Verlag von H. Reuther, Karlsruhe und Liebzig 1881 - First edition. Octavo. 93, [1]pp. Green cloth gilt. Spine a bit faded and a little foxing in the text, very good or better. Signed by Duhring at the conclusion of the introduction. Bookplate of Friedrich Lessing (presumably a descendent of the subject), with much pencil marginalia in German, presumably in his hand, most confined to the introduction and front matter. Pencil note: "Breslauer 29 Aug 1944" (presumably purchased from the prominent German-American rare bookseller at that time). Duhring was a philosopher and economist, and one of the promoters of the anti-Semitic movement in Germany. This work denigrates the role of the 18th century German philosopher and dramatist Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, whose works promoted religious tolerance, as evidenced by his friendship with Moses Mendelssohn. *OCLC* locates a single physical copy in France.

Rear cover with some spotting; spine frayed along the edge with near repairs and a 1/4" horizontal strip of black pitch likely used to repair an old tear. Still a Very Good copy of this high spot of legal scholarship. First Issue with the two-line printer's imprint on title page verso repeated with ampersand on page 422. Original pebbled russet cloth, as with Holmes's personal copy. A classic of literature on law, this collection of lectures given at the Lowell Institute in Boston is one of the most influential books on legal scholarship of nineteenth century America. Grolier, 100 American, 84: "This brilliant exposition, as effective on English scholarship and legal thinking as on American, of the true nature of law both as a development from the past and an organism of the present, blew fresh air into lawyers' minds encrusted with Blackstone and Kent." From its opening paragraph: "The life of the law has not been logic: it has been experience.... In order to know what it is, we must know what it has been, and what it tends to become. Holmes served as chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court from 1899 until 1902. In 1902 he was appointed to the United States Supreme Court by President Theodore Roosevelt, a position he held until his retirement in 1932. Holmes became famous for his liberal interpretations of the United States Constitution and was known as the "Great Dissenter" because of his disagreement with the views of his colleagues on the Court.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GROVER CLEVELAND TO J.W. MORRIS, REGARDING CLEVELAND'S DISAPPOINTMENT WITH HIS SUBSCRIPTION TO AN AMERICAN EDITION OF THE Encyclopedia Britannica]

      Buffalo. March 19, 1881.. [2]pp. manuscript on a 10 1/2 x 8-inch sheet of "Bass, Cleveland & Bissell" law office stationery. Old folds. Slightly soiled. Very good. An interesting letter from future president Grover Cleveland, complaining about the quality of the "American edition" of the ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA to which he has subscribed. This letter was written less than four years before Cleveland's first election to the presidency of the United States (he served two terms, 1885-1889 and 1893-1897). Cleveland likely subscribed to the ninth edition of the BRITANNICA, which was published between 1875 and 1889 and which is regarded as a model of scholarship. It was very popular, and was widely pirated by American publishers. He writes to J.W. Morris: "Dear Sir, I became a subscriber to the Encyclopedia Britannica upon the representation that it was printed from the original plates of the English Edition. Within the last two or three months I was called on by the agent for what is called the American Reprint. He had in his possession what he said was some volumes of the original work and by comparing them with the books I had received under my subscription it was entirely apparent that there were important differences. I became a subscriber for the American Reprint. I am content with it. If I have been deceived I cannot help it, for I have not the time nor inclination to re- examine the matter. One thing is very certain: If I had had any idea of the consequences which have followed my original subscription, it never would have been made. This letter is not for publication. If it were I think I should add some advice suggested by my experience. Yours truly, Grover Cleveland."
