        Remarkable and newly discovered original manuscript draft pages of Charles Guiteau's 1882 book justifying his shooting of President Garfield, written from jail

      Washington, DC, 1882. 6.25" x 7.5". "Original manuscript draft pages 1 “Title page” through 5 of his 1882 book, The Truth and The Removal, written while awaiting his execution for the murder of President James A. Garfield. Also included is a lengthy 4 page letter from an admirer, Clara Augusta Davis. Some marginal tears and losses, some text faded, light toning and soiling, some scattered glue remnants, else good condition. On one pair of bifolia, Guiteau sets up the basic layout for the title and copyright pages: ""The Truth, / and The Removal / By Charles Guiteau / Published and sold only by the author / Washington DC / 1882,"" and advising the printer (vertically in the left margin) to ""Make a sheet of each page & cut out any leaves that interpose C G."" On the opposite side, he added: ""Copyright 1882 By Charles Guiteau"" followed by pages 3 (reading simply ""Part I"") and page 5 (all three pages are glued together in the upper left corners) where he writes ""The Truth / A Companion to the Bible,"" adding a note ""To the printer,"" to ""(Copy preface on the next page and then the entire book, The Truth),"" referring to his 1879 volume.Following James A. Garfield's death on September 19, 1881, Charles Guiteau, who had already been imprisoned and charged with attempted murder, was now charged with murder and went on trial on November 14, 1881. The trial concluded on January 30, 1882, and on February 4, the court sentenced Guiteau to hang on June 30. While awaiting his execution, Guiteau composed a sequel to his 1879 religious tract, The Truth, a Companion to the Bible, entitled, The Removal (the term he employed to describe his assassination of President Garfield). The condemned prisoner employed Gibson Brothers of Washington to print the book as The Truth and The Removal.Extremely Rare. These are among the only known pages of Guiteau's manuscript for The Removal known to be extant in private hands. Auction records reveal no other draft pages of the present, most important manuscript. Only Malcolm Forbes had a similar Guiteau item, sold at auction in 2002 (Christies, March 27, 2002, Lot 122, $9,988). From the family of printer William Gibson, whose firm printed the book in 1882."

        Upon the electrical experiments to determine the location of the bullet in the body of the late President Garfield

      Washington DC: Gibson Bros., 1882. Bell, Alexander Graham (1847-1922). Upon the electrical experiments to determine the location of the bullet in the body of the late President Garfield; an upon a successful form of induction balance for the painless detection of metallic masses in the human body. 58pp. Text illustrations. Washington DC: Gibson Brothers, 1882. 228 x 150 mm. Original printed wrappers, spine perished, evidence of previous binding in a book (oversewing, glue and mesh at spine). Very good copy. Embossed stamp of the Connecticut State Library on front wrapper and first leaf. First Edition, Author’s Offprint for private circulation (so noted on the front wrapper) of the paper describing Bell’s induction balance, the best instrument for locating metallic objects in the body prior to the x-ray. On July 2, 1881 President James Garfield was shot by a deranged assassin and survived for 79 days before dying from septicemia on September 19. The assassination attempt left Garfield with a bullet lodged behind his pancreas, but his death could likely have been prevented had he received better medical care after the shooting. Unfortunately, his doctors did understand antiseptic principles and so did not take any measures to prevent infection, probing the president’s wound with unsterilized fingers and instruments in a vain attempt to find the bullet; they also misjudged the path the bullet took, believing that it had traveled to the right rather than to the left in Garfield’s body. Shortly after the shooting Bell was asked if he could invent a device to detect the bullet in Garfield’s body without the need for painful probing. Bell came up with his induction balance, a machine that used a telephone hooked up to an electric current to locate metallic objects in the body. On August 2 Bell tried to find the bullet lodged inside the president but was unsuccessful, in part because the metal in Garfield’s bed frame prevented Bell from getting an accurate result, and in part because Garfield’s doctor would only let Bell use his device on Garfield’s right side. The president’s deteriorating condition prevented Bell from making a second attempt, and after his initial failure he was denounced as a charlatan; however, an improved version of Bell’s induction balance saved countless lives on the battlefield in the decades before the x-ray came into general use.

        A grammar and dictionary of the Otchipwe language [wrapper title]

      Montreal: Beauchemin & Valois, 1882. New edition, by a Missionary of the Oblates, 2 volumes in 1, thick 8vo; pp. xi, [1], 422; [6], 301, [1], viii, 422, [2]; large folding table of Ojibeway verbs; original green printed wrappers and rare thus. The title page of the Grammar is dated 1878 and the Dictionary 1878-1880. Apparently this is a late issue with the two volumes bound up as one, in wrappers. This copy with an original invoice from the publishers dated 4 Sept. 1882 to W. Scott Hill, the original owner, and with Hill's name and date (6 Sept. 1882) on flyleaf. In a new cloth folding box. Called the "Indian Apostle of the Northwest," Baraga served the Chippewas and the Ottawas in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in Wisconsin from 1831-1868. He studied the Chippewa language, translating religious books, and writing the Theoretical and Practical Grammar of the Otchipwe Language (1850) and the Dictionary of the Otchipwe Language (1853). Ojibway (or Chippeway) is the principle dialect of of the great Algonquin stock. A number of early travellers had included lists of Ojibway words in their published accounts (among them Carver, Keating, Long, McKenney, and Schoolcraft), but Baraga's is the first comprehensive Ojibway dictionary, the first separately printed, and the first to treat the language bilingually with English. Pilling credits Baraga as one of the foremost contributors to the study of Algonquian languages, and states that Baraga's grammar and dictionary are "perhaps the most important contribution to Indian philology made hitherto." Pilling, Algonquin, p. 27; see Ludewig, The Literature of American Aboriginal Languages, London, 1858, pp. 41-44.

        Savannah River to Saint Helena Sound including Calibogue Sound, Port Royal and Broad River

      Published by the Admiralty, London 1882 - Engraving. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 25 1/4 x 38 1/4 inches. A fantastic Admiralty chart of the Savannah River to St. Helena Sound, produced by the British Hydrographic Office. The British Hydrographic Office was founded in 1795 by George III, who appointed Alexander Dalrymple as the first Hydrographer to the Admiralty. He immediately set to work but it was not until 1800 that the first Admiralty chart was published of the waters around Quiberon Bay in Brittany. Unlike the U. S. Coast Survey the Hydrographic Office was given permission to sell charts to the public and they produced a great number of sea charts covering every corner of the globe. Most of the Admiralty charts produced by the Hydrographic Office delineated coastline as well as high and low water marks and record depth of water as established by soundings. In addition these charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued mariners across the world. Thanks to the innovations of Sir Francis Beaufort, who developed the Beaufort Scale of wind strength, the British Hydrographic Office became one of the leading producers of sea charts. This large chart covers the Port Royal Sound including the Savannah River, the Calibogue Sound, and the Broad River. Water depths and sand bars are all carefully recorded, as are the various lighthouses along the coastline. This is an important sea chart of this area and a wonderful example of the maps produced by the British Hydrographic Office.

        ACTA MATHEMATICA. Zeitschrift herausgegeben / Journal rédigé par

      26 tomes en 22 volumes Stockholm, Beijer, 1882-1902, in-4, 26 tomes en 22 volumes, 18 volumes demi-basane bleue et 4 volumes brochés, Très rare ensemble de la tête de collection de cette revue capitale, encore éditée aujourd'hui, fondée par le mathématicien Magnus Gustaf Mittag-Leffler (1846-1927), maître de conférence à l'université d'Uppsala en 1872, professeur à l'université d'Helsingfors (Finlande) en 1877 et à la faculté des sciences de Stockholm à partir de 1881. Certainement le plus prestigieux de tous les journaux consacrés à la recherche en mathématiques. Les Acta Mathematica se flattent de la contribution des plus grands mathématiciens de l'époque : Henri Poincaré, Sophie Kowalevski, Georg Cantor, Émile Picard, Paul Appell, Rudolf Lipschitz, Johan Jensen, David Hilbert, Émile Borel, Heinrich Martin Weber, etc... Ils contiennent entre autre le fameux travail d'Henri Poincaré sur la théorie du chaos, qu'il publia en remplacement de son mémoire initial sur la stabilité du système solaire. L'épisode relatif à ces 2 mémoires fait partie des temps forts de l'histoire de la revue : En 1889, Poincaré rédige un mémoire pour répondre au problème de savoir si les petites perturbations intrinsèques au mouvement des planètes pourraient, un jour, provoquer une collision entre elles ou bien si, comme l'avaient démontré Laplace, Lagrange et Gauss, le système solaire restera stable pendant au moins un million d'années. Le roi Oscar II de Suède lance un concours auquel répond le mathématicien français : en démontrant qu'un système très simple, formé de trois corps dont un de masse presque nulle, est un système stable, Poincaré obtient le prix du concours. Il est prévu que le mémoire soit publié dans les Acta Mathematica. L'article est imprimé, mais tout de suite après sa relecture, on constate une erreur fondamentale, qui non seulement invalide le raisonnement de l'auteur, mais plus encore, le conduit à une conclusion opposée : le système peut être instable. Poincaré dépense plus de la totalité de son prix à faire détruire les tirages et à faire réimprimer le numéro sans son article. Un an après, les Acta Mathematica publient son mémoire révisé, Sur le problème des trois corps et les équations de la dynamique, occupant la quasi intégralité du tome 13 (1890), qui fonde l'une des théories mathématiques les plus connues et les plus populaires, la théorie du chaos. Articles en allemand et en français. 2 portraits : Karl Weierstrass et Sophie Kowalevski Tables des matières aux tome 10 et 20. In fine au tome 11 : liste des 12 mémoires, anonymes, présentés au Prix Oscar II. Sans le portrait d'Abel annoncé au tome I. Volumes en demi-basane : dos épidermés et passés. Couvertures des volumes brochés fanées, dos muets refaits. Cachets annulé de l'Institut catholique de Paris et étiquettes en pied des dos.

        Recherches cliniques sur la fréquence des maladies sexuelles chez les aliénées

      20 pp. Paris, Aux bureaux du progrès médical, A. Delaye & E. Lecrosnier, 1882, in-4, 20 pp, broché, couverture d'attente, Édition originale de cette publication du Progrès Médical, extraite des archives de neurologie, et traitant de l'influence de la fréquence des maladies sexuelles sur la folie de la femme. Le docteur Danillo, médecin de la clinique de Saint-Pétersbourg, a mené cette étude à la Salpêtrière et à Saint-Anne, avec l'accord de Charcot et Magnan. Danillo introduit son sujet avec une approche médicale historique des études précédentes. La problématique de la fréquence n'ayant encore jamais été abordé, il expose par la suite sa méthode scientifique et les résultats obtenus. Cela lui permet de conclure que "si l'on examine le degré de fréquence des affectations sexuelles chez les aliénées accompagnant les différentes formes d'aliénation mentale, [...] on voit qu'il ne parait pas y avoir une tendance plus prononcée chez les aliénées à être affectées des organes génitaux plutôt dans une forme de maladie mentale que dans une autre". Ainsi selon Danillo, les maladies sexuelles touchent les patientes sans distinction de pathologie psychiatrique ; il souligne aussi que la folie a une forte tendance à s'aggraver avec la fréquence des maladies sexuelles (surtout chez femme non ménopausée), et que ces complications sont directement à la fréquence et non à la maladie en elle-même. Bel exemplaire, sous couverture d'attente.

        Métalloscopie, métallothérapie, aesthésiogènes

      72 pages Paris, Delahaye et Lecrosnier, 1882, in-8, 72 pages, broché, couverture d'attente, non coupé, PREMIÈRE ÉDITION en librairie de cette étude sur la métalloscopie initialement publiée dans les n°2, 3, 4, 5 des Archives de Neurologie en 1880-1881. (Archives de neurologie, 2-5. Paris, Bureaux du Progrès médical, pp. 257-273, 413-428, 564-573 & 92-119) Victor Burq fut le premier à faire usage de la métalloscopie sur les femmes hystériques à travers des expérimentations à l'aide de métaux, d'aimants et de courants électriques. Les premières séances d'expérimentation ont lieux en 1876 et 1877. L'application de plaques métalliques sur une région anesthésiée du corps contribuait au retour de la sensibilité dans cette partie du corps, tandis que le côté symétrique, sain à l'origine, perdait sa sensibilité normale. Par la suite, Charcot qualifiera d' « aesthésiogène » l'ensemble des agents ou des procédés susceptibles d'agir sur la sensibilité. Outre les métaux traditionnellement usités par Burq, l'aimant, le gong et le diapason firent progressivement leur apparition durant les séances d'hypnotisation, à l'initiative de R. Vigouroux et de D.-M. Bourneville. Romain Vigouroux, (1831-1911), successeur de Guillaume Duchenne De Boulogne dans le service d'électrothérapie de la Salpêtrière, est par ailleurs connu pour avoir mis au point des installations d'un concentré de machines électriques permettant des traitements réguliers et sériel de patients pouvant aller jusqu'à 4 par jours. (Le Sonn, « L'aimant, le transfert et la polarisation. Les manoeuvres d'hypnotisation à la Salpêtrière par Alfred Binet et Charles Féré », Recherches & éducations, 11 | 2014, 168-184.)

        LA CAZZARIA. DIALOGUE PRIAPIQUE DE L'ARSICCIO INTRONATO.

      1882. Paris Imprime? pour Isidore Lisieux et ses amis Imprimerie de Charles Unsinger 1882 8° Pagine XII + 270 Brossura editoriale con minimi strappetti. Fregi in rame. In barbe. ottimo esemplare stampato su carta forte in 100 esemplari (Nostra copia N°85) Molto rara. Cfr: L'Enfer de la Bibliothèque nationale p. 562-565. Antonio Vignali nacque nel 1500 a Siena e fu membro della famosa Accademia degli Intronati. Assunse perciò lo pseudonimo di Arsiccio Intronato. Durante lotte intestine tra le varie fazioni politiche della sua città, 'i popolari', che lui aveva osteggiato, ottennero la vittoria costringendolo, nel 1530, all'esilio. La caduta della Repubblica di Siena nel 1555 lo addolorò profondamente. Morì nel 1559 a Milano presso la corte del cardinale Cristoforo Madruzzi. L'opera più famosa di Antonio Vignali, La Cazzaria pubblicata probabilmente intorno al 1531 a Venezia, fu riscoperta agli inizi del XVIII secolo dal francese La Monnoye Bernard, che ne fece una copia, poi tradotta e pubblicata da Isidore Liseux. Il giovane francescano Francesco Calcagno (1528-1550) venne giustiziato per blasfemia e sodomia durante la repressione inquisitoriale a Venezia dopo aver confessato la sua lettura della Cazzaria di cui aveva una copia. Cfr: Vendita Gerard Nordman 27 Aprile 2006. In questo prestigioso catalogo di erotica si trova, al N°426, il manoscritto che Isidore Lisieux usò per la stampa di quest'edizione.

        Report on the Phoenician and Roman Antiquities in the Group of the Islands of Malta.

      1882 - First Edition. 38 original mounted photographs, all of which are albumen prints (by G. L. Formosa). Small folio (21 x 32.5cm). Very good light green cloth, corners slightly bumped, gilt title to spine. viii, 168 pp. Malta, Govt. Printing Office, Antonio Annetto Caruana served as Librarian and Keeper of Antiquities at the Malta Library. Inspired by his predecessor, Cesare Vassallo (who discovered hypogea at Mistra and produced a book on the ancient monuments of Malta), Caruana set about his own investigations and publishing projects. He made his first excavations of catacombs in 1860 with Capt. Strickland and, from 1871, was active for the next thirty years in exploring tombs and catacombs, which were myriad, although not always easy to get to (his descent into the Tal-Mintra hypogea at Mqabba was made in a cattle-pen). He also worked on the cleaning and surveying of St. Paul's Catacombs in 1894. This report is the most extensive of his earlier writings and provides a copious survey of Phoenician, Greek, Carthaginian and Roman antiquities at Malta and Gozo. While some of the archaeological work now comes across as dated and unsystematic, the visual record provided is undiminished. The photographs are beautiful and varied: showing artists' re-creations of ancient sites, numismatic drawings and various archaeological finds. A number stand out, such as the image of the seven Kabiri, a series of Phoenician sculptures of hyperbolic female figures that include Axieros and Axiokersa (Ceres and Proserpine) among their number. On their headless forms, Caruana notes that 'the heads were [probably] of some more fragile or precious material than stone'. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Jhdt. kennt man für das große Gesetzeswerk der Spätantike die Bezeichnung Corpus iuris civilis. Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts faßte der Rechtsgelehrte Gothofredus die gesamten textkritischen Arbeiten zusammen und publizierte eine eigene Ausgabe mit Kommentaren und exegetischen Noten. Diese von Gothofredus bearbeitete Version nennt man auch Littera Gothfrediana, sie hatte bis in das 19. Jahrhundert hinein Gültigkeit, wo sie schließlich durch die Edition des Theodor Mommsen abgelöst wurde. Die Bearbeitung G.s wurde mehr als fünfzigmal neu aufgelegt, darunter, alleine zu dessen Lebzeiten, dreimal in verschiedenen Ausgaben (Die erste erschien mit einem kurzen Kommentar 1583, die kommentarlose zweite 1587 und die dritte samt Glossen 1589). Hier vorliegend der dritte Nachdruck der kommentarlosen zweiten Ausgabe.

      1882. Hi, I recently purchased a set of Wisdens and the first 50 of the run were in a suitcase that had not been opened for over 50 years. This lot is an 1882 Original Paperback Wisden. It has tape to the spine. It is in Very Good Condition for the year. The tape is neatly done and holds the book together well, the covers have some marks and age toning , mainly to the bottom of the rear cover. Internally it is very nice and clean and hasn't been opened for a while. No restoration other than the tape applied many years ago. A hard year to find.

        Laguna Indian translation of McGufeyf's [sic] New First Eclectic Reader. Translated and printed by John Menaul

      [Laguna Mission Press], Laguna, New Mexico 1882 - Complete set of 7 unbound, unopened and uncut gatherings, approx. 7¼" x 4¾", pp. [4], iv, [6]-12, [2 blank], 13-28, [2 blank], 29-44, [2 blank], 45-60, [2 blank], 61-76, [2 blank], 77-82 [i.e. 84], [7 blank]; consisting of Directions to the Book Binder, title page, introduction, and the full text of McGuffey's Reader in Laguna translation; an Ayer Linguistics duplicate, with an Ayer accession label on the verso of the last leaf, and a Newberry release stamp above it, and also on the Directions to the Book Binder leaf. McGuffey's 'Reader' was used in the instruction of Indian children of Laguna Pueblo, New Mexico, by Rev. John Menaul, a Presbyterian missionary in that village for many years, commencing 1876. He obtained some copies of the 'Reader' and interleaved them with his translation into Keres (the language of Laguna) using his own little printing press. Menaul was New Mexico's premier publisher of bilingual works. He got his first taste of printing in Africa and put his experience to use in New Mexico beginning in1877. Following four years of work with Navajos at Fort Defiance, Arizona, he assumed a post at Laguna Pueblo, fifty miles west of Albuquerque. There he launched what has since become known as the Laguna Mission Press. Recognizing that a key element of bringing Christianity to the Pueblo people was a common language, Menaul produced educational material and religious tracts in English and Keres, the Laguna tongue. After leaving Laguna Pueblo in 1889, he settled in Albuquerque and continued to print Spanish language religious works" (from Lasting Impressions: The Private Presses of New Mexico, 2005). Not in Graff; not in Streeter (who had at least one other Laguna Mission imprint).

        Views of Kangaroo Point - Brisbane River and Toowoomba

      Two original photographs from Queensland in Australia, taken circa 1882, both with embedded captions, mounted one recto and one verso to the same cardstock mount. The Kangaroo Point photograph was taken by Australia's photographer and colourist Albert Lomer whose studio name appears as the embedded caption. This photograph measures approximately 20,5 x 14 cm, being an albumen print with some age-toning, otherwise in very good condition. The Toowoomba photograph is a gelatin silver print photograph measuring approximately 19,5 x 15 cm, with indication of some creasing, otherwise in very good condition. The cardstock to which both photographs are mounted measures 21 x 15 cm. A very rare albumen print photograph of Kangaroo Point, Brisbane, taken by renowned photographer Albert Lomer around 1882, shows some of the foremost commercial buildings, including a shoreside timber yard, as well as the expanse of residences developing. This view is captured from the north side of the Brisbane River looking south, and likens a similar photograph from a slightly different spot, which Lomer may have taken the same day while creating his panoramic view of Brisbane River from Bowen Terrace, the panorama being composed of five views. [The John Oxley Library, in the State Library of Queensland, holds the original panorama, found in the Lomer Photograph Album dating to 1884.] This photograph bears the embedded stamp "Lomer & Cie". Albert Lomer was an important commercial photographer, active in Australia. He opened the first photographic studio in Brisbane in 1862, and worked from a variety of studio addresses in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Queensland from 1862 to 1900. He opened a studio at Sydney in partnership with Andrew Chandler, advertising that they were from W. Davies & Co. of Melbourne, where both had presumably trained. Their studio, The London Photographic Company, was at 419 George Street. By February 1867 Lomer was operating the business alone. In 1872-73 Lomer was working at 57 Bourke Street in Melbourne. He then established a very successful Brisbane studio at 158 Queen Street which lasted from 1874 until 1905, although he apparently no longer ran it after 1880. Branch studios were opened in various parts of the colony, including the Lomer studio at Mackay in 1887 (managed by J.P. Kemp), a studio at Toowoomba (1893-96) and one at Ipswich (1898-99). Lomer was again in Sydney in 1880-95. Several photographs from Lomer's Brisbane studio have survived, although mainly carte-de-visite portraits. Kangaroo Point is one of the earliest suburbs settled in Brisbane and subsequently, is one of Brisbane's oldest suburbs, rich in history. In 1823, explorer John Oxley described Kangaroo Point as a "jungle, fringed with mangroves with the higher land open forest, covered with grass". During the time of the subsequent convict settlement (1825-1841), Kangaroo Point was cleared and used for cultivation of crops. Subsequently, the area was opened up for free settlement, the first land sales taking place on 13 December 1843. Among the early purchasers was Captain J.C.Wickham, the Police Magistrate. Surveyor James Warner built the first house at Kangaroo Point in 1844. Kangaroo Point's first school was opened in 1861 by the Church of England, which came under the control of the Board of Education in 1867. In 1887, the Yungaba Immigration Centre was built on Main Street at Kangaroo Point to replace the facilities on William Street.

        Currency, or the fundamental principles of monetary science, postulated, explained, and applied.

      New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1882 - Octavo. Original brown sand-grain cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, boards with two line blind rule border, dark brown endpapers. Minor nicks to spine ends, light dampstaining to outer edges of endpapers, front joint starting but still holding firm. A very good copy of this scarce title. First edition of the author's major work on monetary policy. Published posthumously with a prefatory memoir by the author's brother, Currency is a confident treatise on monetary theory, conversant with the best of contemporary economic thought, written by the Canadian-born Hugh Bowlby Willson (1813–1880), proposing a plan for monetary union between the United States, Great Britain, France, Italy, Belgium and Switzerland and giving a monetary (as well as an anti-protectionist) explanation of the business cycle. In a closely reasoned analysis, Willson attributes depressions in large measure to bank-financed excessive growth, the creation of "capital, largely fictitious, drawn from bills discounted." Willson was "deeply involved in the postwar 'Greenback' controversy in the United States. In a number of pamphlets and in testimony before a congressional committee in 1879, he argued strongly that notes issued by the state should be the permanent and exclusive circulating medium. He suggested the creation of a currency board to control the issue of paper money and proposed that the amount of paper money should be related to the volume of business transactions in the country" (R. Warren James and John S. Moir in Dictionary of Canadian Biography). Willson was a man of wide interests: a railroad builder, ship designer, and newspaper man, founder of the Canadian Independent in 1849 (which, pace its name, proposed annexation of Canada to the United States). Many of Willson's theories heralded monetary reforms which would take place after his death. Crawfurd Goodwin, Canadian Economic Thought, p. 133ff., noting that Willson was probably a young pupil of the great Canadian-American economist John Rae, author of Statement of some new principles of political economy (1834).

        THE LIFE, TIMES AND TREACHEROUS DEATH OF JESSE JAMES: THE ONLY CORRECT AND AUTHORIZED EDITION, GIVING FULL PARTICULARS OF EACH AND EVERY DARK AND DESPERATE DEED IN THE CAREER OF THIS MOST NOTED OUTLAW OF ANY TIME OR NATION

      CHICAGO, ILL: J.H. Chambers & Co, 1882. Full Leather. Fine. First Edition, Second State. "Published originally the month following Jesse James's murder in 1882..." (Snell, flyleaf) "The facts cited in this extremely scarce biography of Jesse (and Frank) James were dictated to Frank Triplett directly through James's widow (who was his cousin as well), Zerelda (Zee) James and his mother Mrs. Zerelda Samuel. They disputed Triplett's claim for their participation in the writing of the book, but later sued the publisher for nonpayment of what they considered their royalties...," but the publsihers declared that 'persons entertaining any doubt as to the sources of our information or its full and reliable character can have all doubts removed by calling at our office, corner Third and Locust streets, and inspecting the contract, letters, receipts, etc., signed by Mrs. James and Mrs. Samuel.' ". The specific amount sought by Mrs. James and Mrs. Samuel was $2150, on a sale of 20,000 copies. The jury, however, found that only 4500 copes had been sold and awarded the two ladies $942." (Snell) An unarmed Jesse James was betrayed and murdered by Robert Ford, an ambitious recent hanger-on and member of his own gang who shot Jesse in the back of the head while James was standing on a chair adjusting a picture frame. Ford had cut a deal with Missouri Governor Thomas T. Crittenden to take out Jesse James for a $5000 reward. "Triplett's book was favorable toward Jesse James, but much less favorable toward Missouri's Governor Crittenden and this fact has led many to suspected that the governor was behind the book's disappearance. "..The grave of Jesse Woodson James was still fresh when his grieving but practical mother, Zerelda started selling tours of the family log cabin for a quarter. For another two bits, she'd take your picture next to the gravemarker or let you pick up a pebble from the gravesite. When the pebbles ran low, she'd send a neighbor's kid to the nearby creek for more..." (Scott Kraft in The Sunday Oregonian, June 17, 1979). Wright Howes (U.S. Iana) states that 'Triplett's book was issued in three editions, the first in May of 1882, the second between June and November, and the third in November.' Howe also says: 'It is alleged that effforts were made to suppress this biography. The scarcity of all issues tends to confirm this... Howe's notes that the first edition has a frontispiece illustration of Jesse returning from a raid ;the verso title page in the second edition is an bust of Jesse. The third edition contains the added chapter on Frank James. OUR COPY bears the frontis depiction of a portrait of Jesse and the "Jesse James Returning Home After A Raid "appears opposite page 72. A stunning and fine binding make this scarce "straight from the horses' mouth" biography quite sought after, and in this binding, extremely attractive to a collector of Western Americana, Gunmen, Lawmakers, True Crime, etc. 416 pp. Extremely scarce in original edition.
