        A May 30, 1883 letter by Charles G. "Chinese" Gordon, written to a comrade from Jerusalem mentions landmarks of the Holy Land including the site of the crucifixion of Jesus and where Noah built his Ark

      Jerusalem, May 30, 1883 The 6-page autograph letter signed "C. G. Gordon", written from Jerusalem to a Mr. Button reads in part: "Jerusalem is very interesting and I have found out a deal more about the four rivers. Are people interested in this subject. I have found out that the flood went out at the Dead Sea. Also saw the place Noah built his ark. It was only in 776 AD it was placed at Ararat. Also I have found the Skull Hill where the crucifixion was, it is shaped just like a skull. "About a century ago, a 2,000-year-old tomb was discovered near a cliff called Skull Hill. Since the days when Constantinople legalized Christianity, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre was erected to honor the crucifixion and burial of Jesus, it has been assumed that it was built over the correct location of where it happened. But interesting parallels between the garden tomb at Skull Hill and the descriptions in the Bible make one wonder if this might be the actual location. The Romans used this intersection for crucif

A remarkable Twain association, inscribed by Cable on the half-title: "To Mrs. Samuel L. Clemens / from G.W. Cable / Hartford, Nov 20, 1883." This is a tremendous association copy, as Clemens and Cable were fast friends and mutual admirers; and Olivia Clemens was the frequent host of Cable when he was in Hartford. The two toured the country together twice on reading tours, the first of which being right around the time of this inscription. Furthermore, Clemens, in the winter of 1883-84, according to Paine's biography, "took Cable's fortunes in hand ... invited him to his home, and undertook to open negotiations with the American Publishing Company, of which Frank Bliss was now the manager, for the improvement of his fortunes." Cable was staying with the Clemens family in Hartford, recuperating from an illness, when he inscribed this to Livy; it is also the same date that a copy was deposited in the Library of Congress A superb association copy

        The Chess Monthly

      London: Jas Wade, 1883-1884 iv+380 pages with illustrations, diagrams, tables, and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in quarter brown leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue marbled boards. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume V (5). (Betts: 7-25). First edition.The Chess Monthly of Great Britain was one of the first to give properly annotated games. The principal editor, Leopold Hoffer, was helped enormously by having J H Zukertort as co-editor until his death in 1888. There were four regular sections: news, annotated games, problems and endgames. In addition, Hoffer carried on a profoundly bitter feud with his one-time benefactor, Steinitz. This publication should not be confused with The Chess Monthly published in the United States which was short lived from 1857-1862 and edited by Fiske and Morphy.Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri?s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases. He also had frequent contacts with Gregorio Lastra, Normando Ivaldi, Gaspar Soria and Carlos De Veyga, all known collectors of chess. He died in 2009 in 2009 at the age of 88.Condition:Corners bumped, Ruggieri's stamp to front end paper, some foxing else a very good copy of a scarce item.

      Printed at the Riverside Press, Cambridge 1883 - 248 x 159 mm (9 3/4 x 6 1/4"). 13 volumes. Introductory notes to each volume by George Parsons Lathrop. The "Riverside Edition" (our copy being #68). ONE OF 250 COPIES. Restrained but attractive early 20th century brown crushed morocco by Ernst Hertzberg & Sons (stamp-signed on rear free endpaper), covers with frame formed by pairs of plain gilt rules and a single gilt dot at each corner, raised bands, spine compartments gilt in the same design as the covers, gilt titling, turn-ins densely gilt in a palmette pattern, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, other edges rough trimmed. All 13 volumes with frontispieces and title pages with etched vignette. A Large Paper Copy on laid paper. Title pages in red and black. Clark B-10; BAL 7643. Spines faintly and evenly sunned, just a hint of wear to the tops of three spines, but A BEAUTIFUL SET, the lustrous bindings almost entirely unworn, and the text unusually clean, fresh, and bright. One of the major figures in the history of literature in the United States, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-64) was among those who first inspired the idea of "American literature," a national literature that could take its place alongside its long-established European forebears. Probably more than any other writer of stature in 19th century America, Hawthorne combined vivid imagination with careful, structured craft. In addition to his great achievements--"The Scarlet Letter" of 1850 and "The House of Seven Gables" (1851)--our handsome edition contains all of the lesser narrative and non-fiction writings, including voluminous entries from his journals, said to contain upwards of 300,000 words. This copy has the original 12 volumes that normally make up the set, along with an additional 13th volume containing "Doctor Grimshawe's Secret," edited by Julian Hawthorne. Ernst Hertzberg, who learned to bind in his native Germany, went to work as a finisher for the Ringer bindery after immigrating to Chicago, and he eventually became a partner in the business. He also collected Napoleonic prints and documents with the goal of binding an extra-illustrated edition of William Milligan Sloane's "Life of Napoleon Bonaparte." The completed project was exhibited at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, where it won top honors for bookbinding. Hertzberg sold the set to a private collector for the then-staggering sum of $12,000, which allowed him to buy out his partner and set up his own bindery. Our edition does not often appear at auction: only five copies are listed in ABPC since 1975, and none of those is in full leather. The "Riverside Edition" (our copy being #68).

        Eight Years in Japan, 1873-1881, Work, Travel, and Recreation

      Kegan Paul, Trench & Company, London 1883 - Large 12mo (5 x 8 in. - 14.5 x 20.5 cm), 1883, red cloth with black and gold decoration and gilt lettering on the spine, 3 foldout lithographed maps at the rear, 361 pages with an additional 47 pages of publisher's advertisements at the rear. With the Meiji restoration in 1868, Japan turned toward the West and began adapting western institutions and practices. The railway system was at the vanguard of the emerging "Victorian Japan." The Railway Bureau under the Ministry of Public works was charged with this effort. Edmund Gerald Holtham was a British civil engineer hired by the Railway Bureau to work on this project. He arrived in Japan in November 1873 and this his account of the eight years he spent in Japan. The book is a chronological blend of his work experiences and his personal travel and everyday living. The railroad line between Tokyo and Yokohama had been completed when Holtham arrived. He provides detailed accounts of the expansion of system to include Kobe to Osaka (by early 1874) and onto Kyoto (by 1876). Holtham also recounts a Westerner's view of the Great Rebellion of 1877. The book is not technically oriented. To the contrary, Holtham's focus is on the social and political aspects of his work as a civil engineer working for the Meiji government far more than the nuts an bolts of building and maintaining a railway system. He was a keen observer of Japanese life and the book records his day to day experiences and his extensive personal travels throughout Japan. ~ Condition. The book is in Very Good condition. The inside front and back hinges are cracked but the binding remains tight. Light foxing on edges and a few pages at the front and back. Cover has some fading and light rubbing. The fold out maps at the rear have misfolds but no tears or other faults. ~~ More information, to include digital pictures, available on request.

        Life on the Mississippi

      James R Osgood & Co, Boston 1883 - 624 pages with frontispiece and over 300 black and white illustrations. Royal Octavo (9" x 6 1/4") Issued in the original brown cloth with gilt lettering and pictorial on spine and black and gilt lettering with pictorial on cover. All edges in gilt. Lacks the illustration of Twain's head in flames on page 441, but contains "St Louis Hotel", not the corrected "St Charles Hotel" on page 443. (BAL 34II) Mixed state of the first American edition. Twain once remarked that he considered this book his masterpiece, the book that would outlive his other works and endure as a classic. Of course, Twain once defined a classic as a book everybody talks about but nobody ever reads. At first glance it seems to be a travel book, but it is really a highly readable discursive autobiographical account of Twain's boyhood and his region, and of a culture that radically changed since he left home 30 years earlier. It makes good reading as background for Huck Finn. The only thing that is known of the printing history is what Twain wrote in 1891: that 50,000 copies were printed and bound, but only 32,000 sold. Implication is that the unsold copies were reissued by Charles L Webster between 1884 and 1891 when he took over Osgood's stock. Copies are found with Osgood's sheets and Webster cancel title-page, in Webster bindings, dated 1888 and 1891. As a subscription book, this book was similar in size to the hefty tomes of the American Publishing Company, but the handsome pictorial brown cloth binding ranks with the binding of Huck Fin as one of the best on a Twain first edition. It could be ordered with gilt edges, in full sheep, three-quarter morocco, and three-quarter calf. Condition: Recased with new end papers else a very good copy.

        ALS ("Ulrike").

      Triblitz, 27. V. 1883. - 8vo. 4 pp. on double leaf. In German, to a "dear Bertha" with family news: "My sister is doing fairly well, and B. has improved", though she fears that "the malady may return, as it cannot be completely cured, if the doctors are correct in what they say; but frequently they are wrong [.]". - In 1821, the 72-year-old Goethe had met the then 17-year-old Ulrike at Marienbad and was so carried away with her wit and beauty that he thought of marrying her, for which purpose he even enlisted the help of Grand Duke Charles August of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach. Her hesitation to accept the offer made Goethe give up his plans; instead, he addressed to her the poems which he afterwards called "Trilogie der Leidenschaft" (Trilogy of Passion) and which include the famous Marienbad Elegy. - In perfect condition.
