        Appleton's Journal (Periodical run, 1869-1881)

      New York: D. Appleton, 1881. Hardbound. Ranges from VG to F (Ex-library, some vols. are missing spine fabric, but all boards are present and for its age, this is a great set.). KAVE. 26 bound vols, most three-quarters leather with marbled papers, some with green cloth rebinding instead. A renowned literary journal from the late 19th century, requiring four feet of shelf space. The journal's subtitle varies from "of Literature, Science, and Art," to "a Monthly Miscellany of Popular Literature," to "a Magazine of General Literature." Definitely offers a variety of reading material from various authors, some whose names you will recognize. The first 15 volumes (1869-1876) are similarly bound in leather and numbered. Vol. 16 begins a "Series Two" of Vols. 1-11 (1876-1881). Half of these are rebound in green cloth; the other half have more original but well-worn and deteriorated bindings. In each case, the book block is still intact.

        [Autograph Quotation, Signed, and Autograph Letter, Signed]

      Cambridge, MA, 1881. Two pages, on two leaves of plain letter paper. Old mailing folds, manuscript with some offset along verso at one edge and tanning at two margins of recto (all from having been mounted at one time), letter has a few rust marks in right margin, otherwise very good. The quotation consists of the last four lines from Longfellow's poem, "A Psalm of Life," is signed in full at the conclusion, dated Feb. 18, 1881, and inscribed "For Edward W. Bok," presumably the then 18 year old future editor / publisher. The covering letter is addressed "Dear Sir," but inferentially the recipient was Bok's father, as Longfellow writes: "It gives me much pleasure to comply with your request. I enclose the autograph you desire for your son, and am Yours very truly, Henry W. Longfellow." Bok went to work for Henry Holt and Co. in 1882 (the year following this transaction), and eventually ascended in prominence as editor of the LADIES' HOME JOURNAL.

        [RUSSIAN TRADE IN NORTH PACIFIC AND TRAVEL TO THE USA] Vokrug svyeta: Sorok shest tysiach verst po moryu i sushe: Putevye vpechatleniya K. Skalkovskogo [i.e. Around the World: Forty-Six Thousand Versts on Land and Sea: Travel Notes by K. Skalkovsky]

      St. Petersburg: Typ. T-vo ''Obshchestvennaya Polza'', 1881. [8], 185 pp. Octavo. With ten woodcut plates. Contemporary Russian brown quarter sheep with marbled paper boards. Private library ink stamps on the title page and p. [5], Soviet bookshops' stamps on the rear pastedown endpaper, binding rubbed on extremities, faint stain on the first few leaves, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Very rare. Interesting original account of the first voyage to the Pacific by the steamer Moskva of the Russian Dobrovolny Flot (Volunteer Fleet) in 1880. The goal of the voyage was to establish trade connections between the Black Sea ports and the Far East - China, Japan, and the Primorskaya region of the Russian Empire with the centre in Vladivostok. The author of the book was one of only two passengers of Moskva Konstantin Skalkovsky (1843-1906) - Russian mining engineer, writer, journalist and traveller. He travelled on special assignment of the Ministry of Finance to survey Russian trade in the Pacific. The steamer went from Odessa to Vladivostok via Suez Canal, the Malacca Strait, Singapore, and Xiamen; after having stayed in Vladivostok Skalkovsky visited Nanjing, Hankou, Shanghai, Nagasaki, Kobe, Kioto, Osaka, Yokohama, and Tokyo. From Japan he travelled across the Pacific Ocean to San Francisco on board the SS City of Peking, took a train to New York and returned to Europe on the steamer France. The notes initially published in St. Petersburg newspapers vividly describe the voyage - Singapore trade and Chinese markets, life in Vladivostok, Russian trade in China, Yangtze River, Russian tea factory in China, Japanese tea houses, railways, industrial exhibition in Kyoto, European colony in Yokohama, Japanese navy, and others. Skalkovsky writes about the rules and way of life on board the City of Peking, its passengers, the celebration of the 4th of July; special chapter is dedicated to San Francisco, talking about the economic crisis in the United States, local millionaires, president elections, women races, the ''Alaska Company'' - the heir of the Russian American Company (the headquarters in San Francisco, main articles of hunting and trade, the conditions of life of native Alaskans), the economic crisis in British Columbia with the decline of gold extracting, vodka smuggling by the Americans to the natives of the Russian shores of the Pacific, et al. Overall an interesting account of trade and commerce in China, Japan and North Pacific. ''Dobroflot or Dobrovolny Flot (meaning «Voluntary Fleet») was a state-controlled ship transport association established in the Russian Empire in 1878 funded from voluntary contributions collected by subscription (hence the name). Also known as Russian Volunteer Fleet, Dobroflot was founded in wake of the Russo-Turkish War (1877-78), with the intent of providing Russia with a fleet of fast armed merchantmen. Throughout its existence Dobroflot provided invaluable services for both the government and the economic development of Russia - particularly the Russian Far East, with Dobroflot established the first regular maritime link between Vladivostok and European Russia'' (Wikipedia).

        THE CITY THAT A COW KICKED OVER

      Des Moines: A.H. Andrews & Co., 1881., 1881. First edition. First edition. 9 1/4" x 6 ½" in pictorial wrapper showing an illustration of a cow kicking over a lantern and "Mrs. O'Leary" on the ground with her stool topple over beside her. Title and border in gilt. 22 pp. including wrappers. Illustrations by Chas. Copeland and printed in muted gold or orange. "On the evening of October 8, 1871, a fire consumed the O'Leary family's barn at 137 DeKoven Street. Due to a high wind and dry conditions it spread to burn a large percentage of the city, an event known as the Great Chicago Fire. After the Great Fire, Chicago Tribune reporter Michael Ahern published a report that the fire had started when a cow kicked over a lantern while it was being milked. The woman was not named, but Catherine O'Leary was soon identified, as the fire had begun in her barn. Illustrations and caricatures soon appeared depicting Mrs. O'Leary with the cow." In 1893 the reporter Michael Ahern retracted the "cow-and-lantern" story, admitting it was fabricated, but even his confession was unable to put the legend to rest. Although the O'Learys were never officially charged with starting the fire, the story became so ingrained in local lore that Chicago's city council officially exonerated them ... and the cow ... in 1997. This books begins with a picture of the shore of Lake Michigan. â??This is the City.â? The next picture is one of panic, as cows and an assortment of men and children dash through the street. â??This is the Fire That burned the City.â? This is followed by a simple household utensil. â??This is the Lamp that started the Fire that burned the City.â? Then, "This is the Cow, forlorn and weary, That kicked the Lamp, that started the Fire that Burned the City.â? â??This is the famous Mrs. Oâ??Leary, Who milked the Cow, forlorn and weary, That Kicked the Lamp, That started the Fire that Burned the City.......â? At the center is a double-page illustration showing a city in flames, with an inset showing an imp swinging on an alarm bell. The story goes on to note the gifts that poured in for the homeless and finishes with an illustration of the shore of Lake Michigan, where bustling docks show things are back to normal and with a final verse that begins, â??This is Chicago! Mark her well!â? Heavily soiled, edges chipped, front wrapper, title page, and last page loose. Missing rear wrapper. Good.

        PINOCCHIO - FIRST APPEARANCE IN GIORNALE PER I BAMBINI

      COLLODI,CARLO. [PINOCCHIO] LA STORIA DI UN BURATTINO. Offered here are all of the original issues of the Italian children's magazine GIORNALE PER I BAMBINI in which the story of Pinocchio first appeared in serialized form from 1881-1883. The magazines are 4to, pictorial wraps with a few issues having some minor restoration otherwise generally in VG condition housed in a red cloth folder made from an original cloth cover of an old bound set of the magazines. As an adult, Collodi (born in 1836 Carlo Lorenzini began using the name Collodi in honor of his mother's home town) was an avid spender and gambler who was always involved with writing for adults. It wasn't until the late 1870's that he turned to writing for children with an attempt to translate Perrault's Mother Goose. This was followed in the 1870's by a popular series of moralistic stories about a boy named Giannettino. When the Giornale Per I Bambini was conceived as Italy's FIRST CHILDREN'S MAGAZINE, the first issue of July 7, 1881 contained the FIRST INSTALLMENT OF PINOCCHIO which was then called La Storia Di Un Burattino. It was immediately met with much enthusiasm, especially because it was the first Italian children's story to veer away from pure moralism (although there was a moral to the story, the fantasy was the main appeal). Despite its popularity, Collodi reportedly had to be coaxed to continue it and this explains its intermitent appearance in installments over two years. It was renamed Le Avventure di Pinocchio in 1882 and the final installemnt appeared in 1883. After this, the first edition in book form was published in Florence in 1883. However, there are textual changes and illustrations in the magazine edition that did not appear in the book. A complete set of the magazine appearances of this beloved classic is rare.
