Ink insciption from Ledgerwood himself dated 1883 - 'Received of the author of Aytch - Comp. Book - 17th January 1883 - W.L. Ledgerwood.' Ledgerwood was a Democratic politician from Knox County, Tennessee and joined the Tennessee Union Regiment early in the war. He eventually became a Captain, commanding Compay 'I', 3rd Tennessee Infantry at the Battle of Nashville. Ironically, Captain Ledgerwood's unit and Pvt. Sam Watkins' unit, the 1st Tennessee Infrantry (Confederate), may have faced each other at that battle. In 1883 Ledgerwood was serving as Speaker of the Tennessee House of Representatives for the 43rd General Assembly. A nice association.

      London: Sampson, Low, Marston et. al, 1882. First Edition. hardcover. Front joint of first volume cracking with a small nick at the head of the spine. Text clean, bindings bright and firm with minor rubbing. Three volumes bound in early blue 3/4 morocco by Riviere with gilt lettering and design on the spines and five raised bands. All half-titles present, and the original green cloth spines are bound in at the rear of each corresponding volume. The first volume has been SIGNED by Hardy above the title. A novel relating the love affair between Lady Viviette Constantine and Swithin St. Cleeve who meet at the astronomical observatory that St. Cleeve has set up atop an abandoned monument tower on Lady Constantine's estate. Hardy made considerable revisions in the text of all three volumes, beginning with the second edition of 1883, and added new prefaces, as the various later collected editions of Hardy's works appeared. In his Preface to the 1895 Wessex Edition, Hardy wrote that his novel was "the outcome of a wish to set the emotional history of two infinitesimal lives against the stupendous background of the stellar universe, and to impart to readers the sentiment that of these contrasting magnitudes the smaller might be the greater to them as men." These original texts, as they were published in book form, are now generally considered the most sought after and the current Penguin series of Hardy's novels uses this text, even reproducing the title page of volume I. Sadleir ranks this as Hardy's "seventh scarcest book" and all original editions of Hardy's novels that have been SIGNED by him are exceptionally uncommon.

      1882. In Three Volumes. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1882. 32 pp ads dated Dec 1881. Original brown cloth decorated in black. First Edition of this tale of the boy Bevis (and his friend Mark) -- a sequel of sorts to WOOD MAGIC (two volumes 1881), which together are known as Jefferies's highly-autobiographical "Bevis books." In the first book Bevis, in exploring his rural surroundings, is able to talk with animals, birds, and even inanimate objects like the wind. In BEVIS he is a bit older, without the fantasy but with plenty of imagination -- as the two boys go on many astoundingly-unsupervised adventures, such as sailing a self-rigged boat and shooting with a homemade gun.~BEVIS... by the naturalist and nature mystic Richard Jefferies... is almost an object-lesson in how a book finds its true audience and its "minor classic" status almost by accident and against the odds. In BEVIS, written at the height of Victorian conventionality in children's books, when boys were manly boys, when the lower classes were treated sentimentally or patronizingly by the middle classes, and the cult of the "beautiful child" was beginning, Jefferies presented a picture of an anarchic childhood, with amoral (if manly) boys spending a summer virtually free of adult influence. While it is far from breaking away from its culture (there is an underlying machismo directly linked to conquest, exploration and empire), it was new and liberating, and can be argued to have had an extensive influence... Jefferies is not concerned with moral upbringing, but with skills; not with romantic ideas of the countryside, but with a mystic empathy between humans and nature which allows his boys to slaughter wildlife at random... It is also thoroughly sexist.~BEVIS was originally published as a three-decker for adults, but it very soon became adopted as a book for boys... Arthur Ransome, possibly the most influential twentieth-century children's writer, wrote consciously or unconsciously in the Jefferies mould... [Hunt]~This copy is in the primary binding of brown diagonal-grain cloth decorated in black and stamped in gilt -- with "London | Sampson Low & Co" at the foot of each spine. There is a half-title in Vol I only (as is proper), and Vol III has the 32-page ad catalogue dated December 1881. This is a remarkably fine, bright set: other than a couple of slightly-cracked endpapers and one tiny nick in a spine-head, this set's condition has not changed since 1882. Sadleir 1305 (Copy 1); Wolff 3615; Carter binding A (pp. 122-123).

        FOLKESTONE (NEW) PIER. A striking and skilful watercolour of a Cross-Channel paddle steamer trying to dock in a gale, approaching the new deep-water pier recently erected to allow ships to discharge passengers in Folkestone at low water. The difficulties of manoeuvering a paddle steamer in a high wind and strong tide are captured in this painting, as is the perilous task of men in two rowing boats catching a line thrown from the steamer - the line to be carried to the pier and attached to a capstan. The capstan would then pull the vessel to the pier using the motive power of a steam locomotive, seen at the pier head. The power of the sea and the open construction of the pier provide little shelter against the storm. The drama is vividly por

      Signed and dated 1882 - Watercolour on paper, 18 x 12 inches, mounted, framed and glazed in conservation materials. Recently returned from professional removal of old backing board, stabilization and minor restoration. The painting is free of blemish and the pigment is un-faded. A fine watercolour in fine condition. William Callow, RWS (1812 - 1908) was a painter of landscapes, buildings and seascapes, mainly in watercolour but some in oil - the Victorian heir of the picturesque topographical school epitomised by Prout. Articled at the age of 11 to Theodore and Thales Fielding, he went to Paris in 1829, where he worked under Newton Fielding, and later established himself there as a teacher. At the Paris Salon, he was much influenced by Thomas Shotter Boys. In 1831 he exhibited 'View of Richmond' at the Salon, and as a result was appointed drawing master to the family of Louis Philippe. From 1838 to 1840 he toured Europe making sketches. He left Paris in 1841 for London, and in 1838 was elected to the old Watercolour Society, and was its secretary from 1866-70. He exhibited there about 1,400 works. In 1855 he left London and settled in Great Missenden where he died. Two years before his death he turned out his portfolios of early works and these sold so well that he held an exhibition of them at the Leicester Galleries in 1907. His studio sale was held at Christie's on the 21st March 1910. His work is highly regarded and examples are in the Tate Britain, Manchester City Art Gallery, The Wallace Collection, the Courtauld Institute of Art, the Louvre and most of the great art collections in Europe and USA.

        Rare Autograph! Joseph Pulitzer pays a $400 dividend to John A. Cockerill, editor of the ìSt. Louis Post-Dispatchî ñ endorsed by Cockerill

      Partly Printed Check Signed ìJoseph Pulitzerî in red ink, 8î x 3î. Office of the Post-Dispatch, St. Louis, May 27, 1892. Filled out in another hand to John A. Cockerill Esq. ìdividendî penned in red in unknown hand. Pictorial logo at left. Endorsed ìJohn A. Cockerillî on verso. Folds. Fine condition. John A. Cockerill (1845-1896) became editor of the ìSt. Louis Post-Dispatchî in 1878. In October 1882, at a political rally, lawyer Alonzo Slayback, whose partner was running for Congress, had called the paper ìblackmailers.î In the ìPost-Dispatch,î Cockerill called Slayback a ìcoward.î On October 13, 1882, less than five months after endorsing this check, Slayback went to Cockerillís office and, after a short conversation, pulled a gun from his pocket and aimed it at Cockerill who grabbed his pistol and fired, killing Slayback. Cockerill was tried for murder. Newspapers took sides. The juryís verdict was ìjustifiable homicide committed in self-defense.î After the trial, the ìPost-Dispatchî saw a drop in circulation and number of advertisers. Pulitzer reassigned Cockerill to be editor of his newly acquired ìNew York World.î Joseph Pulitzerís eyes began to fail in the 1880s and by the end of the decade, at age 42, he was virtually blind. Autograph material authentically signed by Pulitzer has rarely appeared on the market. In fact, before this item became available, only one Joseph Pulitzer signed document or letter had appeared at a major public auction in at least the last 25 years.

      1882 - A Novel. In Three Volumes. London: Chapman & Hall, 1882. Original ochre cloth decorated in black. First Edition of "one of the thinnest and least satisfactory of the [Trollope] novels, relieved only by the abortive conspiracy of Lady Kingsbury and the [unscrupulous family] Chaplain" [Gerould]. The Marquis of Kingsbury's second wife does all she can to see that her husband's two children do not marry, so that her own children will inherit instead; into this cauldron comes Marion Fay, daughter of an old Quaker in town, who falls in love with the Marquis's son.~This is a near-fine set -- of a title which because of its ochre-colored cloth is notoriously difficult to find in decent condition (with the result that most sets encountered today have been rebound). The cloth is unusually clean, with the exception that (as is just about always the case) the spines are slightly dulled; wear is limited to just the very slightest, at the extremities. The original yellow endpapers are clean and exhibit scarcely any cracking, and the interior leaves are fine without any foxing. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 64. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        MARION FAY

      1882. A Novel. In Three Volumes. London: Chapman & Hall, 1882. Original ochre cloth decorated in black. First Edition of "one of the thinnest and least satisfactory of the [Trollope] novels, relieved only by the abortive conspiracy of Lady Kingsbury and the [unscrupulous family] Chaplain" [Gerould]. The Marquis of Kingsbury's second wife does all she can to see that her husband's two children do not marry, so that her own children will inherit instead; into this cauldron comes Marion Fay, daughter of an old Quaker in town, who falls in love with the Marquis's son...~This is a near-fine set -- of a title which because of its ochre-colored cloth is notoriously difficult to find in decent condition (with the result that most sets encountered today have been rebound). The cloth is unusually clean, with the exception that (as is just about always the case) the spines are slightly dulled; wear is limited to just the very slightest, at the extremities. The original yellow endpapers are clean and exhibit scarcely any cracking, and the interior leaves are fine without any foxing. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 64.

        TWO ON A TOWER

      1882. New York: John W. Lovell Company, n.d. [1882]. Original brown cloth decorated in black. Early (first?) American edition. This Hardy novel first appeared serially in Atlantic Monthly, where it ran from May through December 1882, paving the way for it to be pirated once complete. The three-volume English edition came out at the end of October, as well. Early in December, three American editions came out -- the authorized one, in Henry Holt's "Leisure Hour Series," plus two pirated ones, in John Lovell's "Lovell's Library" and in George Munro's "Seaside Library." Purdy notes,~The Holt and Munro editions are listed in Publishers' Weekly, 9 December. The Lovell's Library edition is not listed at all and may have been a bit earlier. It [the cheaper version bound in wrappers] is dated 14 November, but such dates are hardly trustworthy.~This is one of the copies bound in cloth, with "Lovell's Library" at the top of the spine. Condition is near-fine (just a bit of rubbing at the corners), with some faint foxing on the extremely cheap textual paper. See Purdy p. 47.

      Boston & New York: Lee and Shepard / Charles T. Dillingham, 1882.. xiii,[1],372pp. Large, thick octavo. Half gilt calf and marbled boards, pictorial panels of original binding bound in. Frontis and illustrations. Closed tear in lower margin of one leaf, otherwise a very good copy. First edition. A superb association copy, inscribed prior to publication by the author to American Orientalist and modernist literary influence, Ernest Fenollosa, utilizing Fenollosa's Japanese honorific: "To Mast. Kano E Fenollosa Our young American in Japan with the author's affectionate regard. Manchester by Sea Mass Oct. 10. 1881" After serving with the British military during the Second Opium War, Greey (1835-1888) traveled to Japan in the diplomatic service and immersed himself in the country's language, culture and art. In 1868, he settled in New York, opening a shop specializing in Japanese art and antiquities, and subsidizing that income as a writer. In addition to formal works such as the present, which afford a valuable insight into aspects of Japanese history and culture from a Westerner's point of view, Greey was a prolific contributor to the pulp press and boy's papers, often under pseudonyms. He took his own life in 1888 under mysterious circumstances. As a somewhat older contemporary of Fenollosa, he would no doubt had ample reason and opportunity to make his acquaintance, either in the U.S. or during travels back to Japan on business.

        Cetywayo and his White Neighbours; or, Remarks on Recent Events in Zululand, Natal, and the Transvaal

      London: Trübner & Co., , 1882. or, Remarks on Recent Events in Zululand, Natal, and the Transvaal. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, device of an eight pointed star over a circle to front cover gilt, triple black rules to head and tail of front cover and spine, continuing across the back cover in blind. Spine bumped and a little rubbed, slight wear to corners, some foxing to the prelims, as usual , and some to the margins, but on the whole a very good copy. First edition, first impression. One of just 750 copies. On his return to Britain following the outbreak of the First Anglo-Boer War, Haggard had been unable to find a publisher willing to take on his "denunciation of Britain's South African policies." (ODNB) Eventually he paid Trübner £50 to put out this small run, but in confirmation of the publishing world's reticence, in two years it had sold just 154 copies. However, following the runaway success of King Solomon's Mines, the edition sold through and a second was published in 1888, reaching a fourth by 1891.
