      [Sacramento?:. 1882]. 183pp. Stitched in original printed wrappers with wrapper title, as issued. Wraps a bit chipped along spine and corners. Clean text. Very Good. Born in Ohio in 1823, Wilson began practicing law in San Francisco in 1852; he became one of the leaders of the California Bar. He represented The Gold Run Ditch and Mining Company, which conducted hydraulic mining operations in Placer County on Canyon Creek ravine. The Company collected debris from its operations and placed it at the bank of the Creek, a tributary of the North Fork of the American River. In this early environmental suit, brought under the law of Nuisance, the State alleged that the Company had polluted the River, which had been a source of clean water fit for ordinary uses, and had thus rendered it unfit; that the debris had diminished the value of abutting property, and had rendered the river unnavigable. The State sought to shut the mining operations down. A two-month trial ensued. Despite the determined and protracted efforts of Wilson and his co-counsel, the trial court issued an injunction against the Company. The judgment was affirmed at 66 Cal. 138 [1884]. Not in Cowan. OCLC 77874574 [1- Harv. Law School] [as of January 2016].

        The Land of the Midnight Sun. Summer and Winter Journeys through Sweden, Norway, Lapland and Northern Finland.

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1882 - 2 volumes, octavo (222 × 145 mm). Original blue cloth, gilt titles and dark red coat of arms to spines, sun and bird blocks to front boards in gilt and dark red respectively, further bird tools to rear boards, pale brown endpapers. Later ownership inscriptions of A. D. Exton and Franklin Curtiss to the initial blank. Spines slightly faded, extremities a touch rubbed and bumped, rear covers lightly marked, staining from removed bookplates to front pastedowns, contents toned, pale tide-mark to lower outer corners in volume 2 from page 100. A very good copy. Engraved frontispiece to each volume (double-page in volume 1), 51 similar plates, profuse illustrations to the text, coloured folding map in end-pocket to volume 1. First US edition of the book noted for coining the phrase in the title. Following a series of celebrated expeditions to Gabon, in which he provided the first external account of gorillas and of the Pygmy peoples, French-American explorer Du Chaillu (1835-1903) travelled extensively across Scandinavia between 1871 and 1878. His account pays special attention to the antiquities of the prehistoric and Viking ages; it was followed in 1889 by a specialised study, The Viking Age. Owing to his exploits in Central Africa some have believed Du Chaillu to have been Edgar Rice Burroughs's inspiration for Tarzan. The Land of the Midnight Sun was originally published in the United Kingdom the previous year; there were several further editions and a German translation. Howgego IV D32.

        [Archive]: Charlotte Perkins Gilman: The Lost Letters to Martha (1882-1889)

      (Providence, R.I.; Pasadena, C.A.). A large cache of handwritten letters from Charlotte Perkins Gilman to Martha Luther Lane, Charlotte's dearest friend and confidante. The correspondence, thought to have been destroyed or lost, consists of 52 letters (47 complete and 5 incomplete) totaling 323 manuscript pages, along with a separately signed and illustrated four-page insert, and a humorous autograph poem. The letters date from the most important, formative period in Gilman's life: beginning in October 1882 through 1889, they document her youthful happiness, ambition, and flourishing love for Martha; and her subsequent struggle to overcome post-partem depression and mental illness.It was during this seven-year period that Gilman became engaged and married Charles Walter Stetson, gave birth to their daughter Katherine, and wrote "hot" letters to Martha as a means to break-out of her ensuing "wild" post-partum depression and an unhappy marriage. Many critics consider this period the crucible which forged Gilman's uniquely modern voice and directly informed her masterwork: The Yellow Wallpaper. The letters reveal the extent to which Charlotte adhered to her pact of "mutual understanding" with Martha, in which the two bound themselves to complete honesty in "word and deed". The depth of Charlotte's despair and anger is thus revealed in all of her intimate correspondence with Martha: in one letter (Sept. 30th, 1885), she admits to striking her baby; and one gets a glimmer of Martha's reactions in the subsequent letters that the distraught Gilman references.Charlotte's relationship with Martha is recognized as perhaps the most important in Gilman's life, beginning while both were adolescents in Providence, Rhode Island, and continuing throughout their lives. In many letters Charlotte employs tongue-in-cheek baby talk and humorous rhymes directed at Martha, along with numerous terms of endearments. One letter from August 1885 includes a limerick Gilman wrote for Eddie Jackson, a child she served as governess. There are also examples of word games and other forms of levity, but it is Gilman's often brutal honesty that stands out in all of her letters. She did not soften her words for the sake of Martha's more gentle nature and conservative views, nor did she shrink from the implications of her most radical views.Several of the letters are illustrated with pen & ink drawings by Gilman, including some with ironical and humorous drawings Martha, of Martha and her husband, and also of herself and Martha. One depicts a sapling bent and tethered to the ground, drawn to illustrate the depth of her depression. In total there are about 20 individual drawings, both large and small, most drawn within the body of the text.A remarkable collection of letters that will render all existing biographies of Gilman obsolete, and fully deserving publication. A detailed list of the letter is available upon request. .

        Leaves of Grass

      Philadelphia: Rees, Welsh & Co.,, 1882. Octavo. Original ochre cloth, titles gilt to spine and front, blue endpapers. Portrait plate inserted facing Song of Myself. Contemporary ink ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Slight rubbing to ends and corners, a sound and fresh copy in excellent condition. First edition thus, the seventh overall, quite scarce, and a very nice copy. This is the first Philadelphia edition to be printed following the book's censorship in the previous year, Osgood's edition having been labelled by the Massachusetts Attorney General as "Obscene and Ordered To Be Removed From Sale". Osgood refused to publish further, expressing concern to Whitman that "We are ... naturally reluctant to be identified with any legal proceedings in a matter of this nature". Rees, Welsh & Co boldly took up the text, under the direction of a young David McKay, printing from plates of the Boston edition of 1881, though with some alterations. They produced four printings thus (all indistinguishable from one another) before the plates were issued under McKay's own imprint. This copy has the inserted portrait plate of Whitman following page 28, facing the beginning of Song of Myself. It also has a clipped portrait of Whitman with butterfly to the front pastedown, and some additional clipped Whitman poems to rear pastedown.

        ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES BY MEANS OF NATURAL SELECTION, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life

      London: John Murray, 1882. Sixth edition, with additions and corrections (twenty-fourth thousand). With a folding diagram. 8vo, original green cloth, gilt lettered spine. xxi, 458, 32 ads. A fine, bright copy with a light bit of spotting to prelims and endleaves caused by the paper stock, as is typical. A FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 1882 ISSUE, DIFFICULT TO FIND IN COLLECTOR'S CONDITION. THE GREATEST WORK IN SCIENCE OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY AND THE MOST IMPORTANT BIOLOGICAL WORK EVER PENNED. An important early edition of "the most influential scientific work of the nineteenth century" and "the most important biological work ever written" (Horblit, Freeman). Darwin's elaboration of the theory of natural selection laid the groundwork for the controversy over the evolution of man, and with only slight modification by such scientists as Stephen Jay Gould, Darwin's ideas remain the umbra under which most current biological research is conducted. The repercussions of Darwin’s theory on religious, scientific, sociological and philosophical thought was the result of what Garrison considered “the most wonderful piece of sythesis in the history of science.” Darwin brought man to his true place in nature and accomplished a revolution. Darwin had intended the book to be an abstract of his 'big book' on transmutation, of which only the first part (VARIATION UNDER DOMESTICATION, 1868) was published in his lifetime. The first edition of “Origin” had a print run of only 1250 copies and was sold out in a day. This is a printing of the sixth edition. The sixth is generally considered to be the “last” edition and it first appeared in 1872. It included a new chapter, VII, which was inserted to confute the views of the Roman Catholic biologist St George Mivart. A glossary appears for the first time, and it was in this edition that the word "evolution" appeared for the first time in the work (it was used in the first edition of THE DESCENT OF MAN in the previous year). As Freeman says, "'Evolved' had been the last word of the text in all previous editions, but 'evolution' had been omitted, perhaps to avoid confusion with the use of the word by Herbert Spencer or with its more particular embryological meaning" (p. 79).

      Philadelphia: Rees Welch & Co., 1882-1883.. First Edition, First Issue. BAL 21422. This copy is from the library of diarist Frederick Shelley Ryman with his signature and Boston, Ma. on the front end-paper, where he also has written, "Autograph Edition see p.122- Bought off Walt Whitman himself. Recd Jan. 6th, 1888". Forty four of Ryman's diaries dated 1880-1929 are in the permanent collection of the Mass Historical Society. "An atheist, he espoused free-love doctrines, passionately loved the poetry of Walt Whitman, and championed women's rights to equal education and employment. Nonetheless, the adventures he recorded at length in his diaries disclose a subculture that Ryman shared with other single men and women of the era. Ryman left a rich historical legacy in his extensive diaries which provide a rare personal account of male sexual experience during the 19th Century". This copy has Ryman's news clippings, cross outs, marginal lines and annotations sporadically throughout the book. This copy has a bold Whitman signature laid in at page 122 opposite the portrait (loose) of Whitman with butterfly. 8vo,, bound in the publisher's original yellow cloth. An attractive copy well used by its illustrious former owner with his extensive and highly interesting notes throughout, along with the laid-in portrait and Whitman autograph slip Ryman has also preserved within the book several articles on Whitman, some are laid in while others are tipped to the endpapers and free-flies. A WONDERFUL COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION OF THIS GREAT CLASSIC PROSE WORK BY WALT WHITMAN, AMERICA'S GREAT POET, THIS FASCINATING COPY WITH LAID IN AUTOGRAPH SIGNATURE OF WALT WHITMAN AND EXTENSIVE NOTATIONS ATTESTING TO ITS FINE PROVENANCE. THE BOOK IS REPLETE WITH MARGINALIA AND CONTEMPORARY WRITTEN MARKINGS AND CONNECTIONS TO THE POET. Among Whitman's personal writings included herein are his reminiscences upon his last visit with Emerson, his visit to Concord and vicinity to meet with the Alcotts the Emersons and other important personages and to spend time discussing, visiting the grave of and paying homage to Henry David Thoreau. Also included is a critique on the poetry of America, as well as an entire sub-section entitled "Notes Left Over." These writings are Whitman's most famous prose considerations.

Man kann nicht wissen, wie sich die Verhältnisse hier, wie sie sich dort gestalten werden [...]. P. S. Meines Wissens ist der Waffenschmied in Bremen. Sollten Sie etwas von meinen dort noch nicht gegebenen Opussen anbringen können, so unterlassen Sie's ja nicht. Nochmals herzlichen Gruß [...]". - Beiliegend eh. Widmung von Charlotte Lortzing (1 S.

Full 20th century brown morocco, raised bands, with original heavily gilt pictorial vignettes from the cloth binding inset into upper and lower boards. Portrait, photographs and engravings. Modest shelf rubbing at tips, faint crowned signet blindstamp in first three leaves, slight tanning at edges of textblock, a couple of preliminary and terminal blanks strengthened at gutter when rebound, but a very good, sound copy. First edition. Illustrated with thirty-two 'Artotypes," a four-figure plate of chromolithographs, and eighteen engravings. The extraordinary account of Commander Gorringe's expedition to transport the Egyptian Obelisk that now stands in New York's Central Park. A career officer in the US Navy, Gorringe was sent in 1876 in command of the "USS Gettysburg" on special service to the Mediterranean, where he remained until 1878, all the while contributing letters to the New York NATION. He came to fame in 1880 by his work in dismounting, packing, transporting and erecting the Egyptian obelisk ("Cleopatra's Needle") that had been offered to the US by the Egyptian Khedive Ismail in 1879 at the opening of the Suez Canal. On October 16, 1879, with the assistance of 100 Arabs, he rigged the obelisk into the hold of the steamer Dessoug. It arrived in New York on July 20, 1880 and it took 5 months to rig the Obelisk from the water to Central Park, where it arrived on January 22, 1881. The work also incorporates archaeological observations on and a census of Egyptian obelisks, along with accounts of the transfer of the London, Paris and Vatican Obelisks. Many of the photographs are credited to Edward Bierstadt, or to Hannoun & Bierstadt.

A very good copy. First US edition of the book noted for coining the phrase in the title. Following a series of celebrated expeditions to Gabon, in which he provided the first external account of gorillas and of the Pygmy peoples, French-American explorer Du Chaillu (1835-1903) travelled extensively across Scandinavia between 1871 and 1878. His account pays special attention to the antiquities of the prehistoric and Viking ages; it was followed in 1889 by a specialised study, The Viking Age. Owing to his exploits in Central Africa some have believed Du Chaillu to have been Edgar Rice Burroughs's inspiration for Tarzan. The Land of the Midnight Sun was originally published in the United Kingdom the previous year; there were several further editions and a German translation.

Both volumes have the booksellers ticket on the rear pastedown: (Brown & Gross Booksellers Hartford CT). [TOGETHER WITH] TWO VOLUMES. Bound in original plum cloth (volumes III and IV), brown coated endpapers; wear to extremities, rear inner hinge just starting on volume 3, but very good overall; half orange morocco slipcase.
