      Houghton, Mifflin and Company, Boston and New York 1884 - 279 x 191 mm (11 x 7 1/2"). Eight volumes. Edited by Justin Winsor. FIRST EDITION. Simple but pleasing contemporary black half morocco over marbled boards, raised bands accented with gilt rules, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. With more than 1,000 in-text illustrations, maps, and charts. With the bookplate of Samuel Nelson Sawyer in each volume. Minor wear to raised bands, faint darkening at edges of leaves, otherwise an excellent set, the attractive bindings very sturdy, and the fresh, clean leaves with few signs of use. Compiled by the prominent librarian-turned-historian Justin Winsor (1831-1897) and published over a period of six years, this ambitious work covers the history of North and South America, including the history of the Spanish, Portuguese, and British on the continent. Winsor gathered 39 scholars and contributors for the work but, in the end, wrote roughly half of the eight-volume publication himself, including most of the critical and bibliographical essays. Credited for his influence in professionalizing the field of librarianship, Winsor is probably best remembered for his role in founding the American Library Association in 1876, and for serving as its first president for 10 years. As the Librarian of Harvard College, a position he held for the rest of his life, he made crucial changes that are taken for granted in today's model of the university library: open stacks for students and a unification of campus libraries. His interest in history led him to write numerous books, the "Narrative and Critical History" being among his most successful, having attained the honor of being a standard reference source in its time. Our former owner Samuel Nelson Sawyer (1858-1939) served for almost 20 years as a trial judge in the Supreme Court of New York and two years on the appellate bench. He was very active in the Masons, achieving the title of "Most Worshipful Grand Master.". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1884 - A Novel. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1884. Original wrappers. First American Edition, published as Number 373 in Harper's "Franklin Square Library." This was Trollope's last novel, published after his death. John Gordon heads off to South Africa to find his fortune, in order to be able to wed Mary Lawrie, and returns with it three years laster -- only to arrive on the day after Mary had accepted the proposal of the elderly bachelor William Whittlestaff, who had become her benefactor.~AN OLD MAN'S LOVE was not serialized but was published in two volumes by William Blackwood of Edinburgh in November or December 1883. Harper published this edition on April 11, 1884, paying ten pounds to Blackwood for sending them a set of advance sheets.~"The Cheapest Publication in the World" according to the Philadelphia Press, Harper's Franklin Square Library had been founded to deserve that description -- tabloid-sized, printed in triple-column (later double-), with no illustrations, priced at ten (later fifteen) cents.~The Franklin Square Library was intended to. present works of some of the most popular authors to American readers "who may not find it convenient to encumber themselves with books or periodicals too costly to be cast aside after perusal." This new series and its advertising logic sounded the death knell for collectors. Their fragility, format, and ephemeral makeup discouraged most buyers from keeping them. Despite the thousands of copies printed of each title in the series, few have survived. Trollope editions in the series are of the utmost rarity and those that have survived are generally defective. First editions published in newspaper format after early 1878. are rarely seen for sale and are usually found only in private collections and in certain research libraries. [W. Smith]~This copy is complete in 40 pages of double-column text (the front page serving as self-wrapper, its top half devoted to series and novel headings). This copy does have an additional outer (advertising) wrapper. Condition is very good (a bit of archival mending along the spines of the dual wrappers, but otherwise just minor edge-wear). Smith 58. Housed in a custom clamshell case with inner four-flap wrapper. The first copy we have seen in our thirty years in business. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Autograph Letter, signed, to "Ethel" [Hatch]

      "Christ Church", [Oxford], jan.30/'84 [1884] - A touching letter. Ethel being almost certainly one of Dodgson's favorite 'child-friends', Ethel Hatch: "My dear Ethel, "I think it will have to be YOU that settles the 'which' as to the new book: but the 'when' is quite another matter. It is quite a High School sort of question - 'If anticipation gives happiness, what will 40 years of anticipation give?" ANS: '40 years of happiness!' My only fear is that is would be too much happiness for you. Still, I know you are a VERY good girl (at least, all the people who live in Canterbury Row, & in that neighbourhood, have never told me anything to the contrary), so I say to myself 'Yes! She DOES deserve it. She shall have 40 years of happiness!' "Give B [eatrice Hatch] my love, & thanks for her letter: & as she now does a 'different sort' of work from the High School, I send her a question to work out; the like of which was NEVER set there. 'If it is odd to have an undergraduate brother, what is it to have two?' ANSWER: 'Even.' "Please think of me in the year 1924 A.D. and believe me, "Yours always affectionately "CLD" 12mo. 4pp. in Dodgson's purple ink. Fine.

        Study of Maid's drapery for his painting "King Cophetua and the Beggar Maid.

      n.p., ca. 1884 - Edward Coley Burne-Jones (1833-1898), was "The most important artist in the later phase of the Pre-Raphaelite movement and a figure of enormous influence at home and abroad" (Christian).

Burne-Jones embarked on a distinguished career. For many years he seldom exhibited, relying on the support of devoted patrons, but in 1877 he began exhibiting at London's Grosvenor Gallery; his large paintings "caused a sensation, revealing him as the 'star' of the Grosvenor, a key figure in the Aesthetic Movement, and one of the leading artists of the day . the [peak] of his later career [was] the exhibition of King Cophetua and the Beggar Maid at the Grosvenor in 1884 . " During the 1890s he enjoyed an international reputation, "being especially fashionable in Symbolist circles in Paris, where King Cophetua was received with great acclaim at the Exposition Universelle of 1889". He was created a baronet by Queen Victoria in 1894 Initially exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery, 1884. Image 13-1/4 x 9-1/4 inches, matted, framed and glazed to 22 x 17-1/2 inches overall.

        Reflections in Palestine, 1883.

      London, Macmillan 1884 - Duodecimo. Pp. x, (2), 124. Plus 3 lithograph maps on 2 plates, printed in black with additional colour by hand. Sketch illustrations to text. Hardcover, original grey cloth, bit discoloured and marked, printed and decorated in red and black. Chalked forest-green endpapers (bookplate removed from front paste-down), first inner hinge mended. In a very good condition, fine interior, crisp maps. ~ First edition. British army General Charles George Gordon (1833-85), popularly known as "Chinese Gordon", served in the Crimean War and in the 1860 expedition to China, where he took part in the capture of Beijing and later commanded the Chinese force against the Taiping Rebellion. Appointed governour of Sudan in 1877, he waged a vigorous campaign against slave traders. He resigned in 1879, and in 1883 travelled to the Holy Land where he remained for a year, devoting his time to the study of Biblical history and of the antiquities of Jerusalem. In 1884 he was called back to service and was sent to the Sudan to defeat the Mahdi. During the campaign he was cut-off and besieged at Khartoum for 10 months. A relief expedition, belatedly dispatched from England, reached the garrison two days after it had been stormed by the Mahdists, who killed Gordon. Gordon's death stirred public indignation and contributed to the collapse of the Gladstone government in 1885. "Reflections in Palestine" is based on Gordon's observations during his year-long visit to the Holy Land. It was published by his friends while he was posted in Khartoum, shortly before his death. The book is divided into Topographical and Religious sections. In the first, Gordon describes in detail the topography and architecture of some of the major holy places he had visited, while the second part is dedicated to the religious contemplations these places has aroused in him. Lytton Strachey, in "Eminent Victorians" (1918), writes this wonderful memoir of Gordon: "During the year 1883, a solitary English gentleman was to be seen, wandering, with a thick book under his arm, in the neighbourhood of Jerusalem. To the friendly inquirer, he would explain that he was engaged in elucidating four questions: the site of the crucifixion; the line of division between the tribes of Benjamin and Judah; the identification of Gibeon; and the position of the Garden of Eden. He was also, he would add, most anxious to discover the spot where the Ark first touched ground, after the subsidence of the Flood: he believed, indeed, that he had solved that problem, as a reference to some passages in the book which he was carrying would show."

        Charles ?Chinese? Gordon from Khartoum! Days before the Siege of Khartoum, in the midst of evacuating the city, he quotes from the Book of Chronicles, praying to the Lord, <I>?We have no might against this multitude we know not what to do, but our eyes are upon Thee and God?s answer, the battle is not yours but God?s?? </I>?

Fine condition.Chinese Gordon thanks his aunt for sending him ?the nice verses you copied out,? then ostensibly paraphrases them, from II Chronicles. His intense religious devotion comes through powerfully in this letter to his Aunt Amy penned from Khartoum. Lytton Strachey in ?Eminent Victorians? (London: Chatto & Windus, 1918) writes that at Pembroke, where [Gordon] was sent to work at the erection of fortifications, ?those religious convictions, which never afterwards left him, first gained a hold upon his mind. Under the influence of his sister Augusta and of a ?very religious captain of the name of Drew?, he began to reflect upon his sins, look up texts, and hope for salvation. Though he had never been confirmed ... he took the sacrament every Sunday.? From, ?Gordon was first posted to the Engineers d

        [Six Original Drawings]: Four sheets of Anatomical Drawings depicting the bones and muscles of the Arm and Shoulder (Skelett des gestreckten Armes; Muskeln des gestreckten Armes; Skelett des gebeugten Armes; Schulterblatt mit Schlusselbeinverbindung), and two sheets of Anatomical and Physiognomical Drawings of the Head and Face

      [Germany]. (1884-1885). Four sepia and two black and white ink drawings on thick paper sheets (measuring about 14" x 11"). The four sheets of sepia drawings have manuscript titles and descriptions in German, including one sheet initialed and dated by the artist (1884). The other two sheets of ink drawings are signed and dated: "C. Philipp" (1885). All six appear to be by the same artist, and are drawn on the same thick gray paper sheets. The sheets are hand-cut, with a few small tears at the corners, very good. The four sheets of sepia drawings consists of 12 anatomical drawings: eight representing the skeleton and muscles of an extended and a flexed arm, and four representing the scapula and clavicle. All 12 have the various bones and muscles numbered and identified in manuscript. The two sheets of pen & ink drawings consists of 14 individual representations of the head and face (depicting the skull, muscles, and fully fleshed faces), and 29 representations of fully fleshed faces: these being a series of physiognomic studies based on Johann Kaspar Lavater&#39;s famous Physiognomische. The anatomical drawings of the arm and shoulder may have been intended for Christoph Roth&#39;s Plastisch-Anatomischer Atlas (issued in several editions from 1870-1892), which prints chapter titles identical to those used for the drawings. However, it appears most likely that this set of drawings was not published. A remarkable suite of highly accomplished and detailed anatomical studies. .
