        TREASURE ISLAND

      1884. [the first illustrated edition] With Illustrations. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1884. 12 pp undated ads. Original slate grey cloth decorated in black. First American (and first illustrated) Edition. The first English edition, unillustrated, had been published in November 1883; this American edition, with four plates by F.T. Merrill, was published in February 1884. (The first English illustrated edition, with 26 plates including the four from Roberts Bros., was not published until mid-1885.)~This copy is from the second and (in our experience) usual issue -- with the error "rain" corrected to "vain" on the last line of p. 40, and with twelve rather than four pages of ads.~According to bibliographers (such as the Yale and Princeton collections), the book appears in dark brown, slate grey or mustard-yellow cloth, without priority; we have also had aqua blue.~Condition is about very good -- moderate wear at the bottom edge of the volume, spine lightly speckled, some pages foxed or hand-soiled within. The frontispiece map and the title page are browned from the still-present tissue guard; atypically, the original leafy endpapers remain clean and un-cracked.~In our experience, this Boston edition is considerably scarcer than the 1883 English one, even on this side of the Atlantic -- and when it does turn up, it is typically in atrocious condition. Beinecke (Yale) 244 (yellow) & 245 (grey) -- no indication of p. 40 reading, but both with 4 pp ads; Princeton 22A, copy 1 (grey, "rain," 4 pp ads) & copy 2 (yellow, "vain," 12 pp ads) & copy 3 (brown, "vain," 12 pp ads).

        Naîs Micoulin

      Paris: G. Charpentier, 1884. First Edition. INSCRIBED by Émile Zola. First edition of the author's scarce short-story collection, which includes Naîs Micoulin, Nantas, La Mort d'Olivier Becaille, Madame Neigeon, Les Coquillages de M. Chabre, and Jacques Damour. Zola has inscribed the book on the half title to an old school friend who became a sculptor: " `a Philippe Solari / son ami / Emile Zola." Bound in contemporary quarter calf. Light wear and rubbing to edges, flaking of calf to spine, some light scattered foxing. Otherwise, Very Good. SCARCE signed. Zola (1840-1902) and Solari (1840-1906) were life-long friends, meeting at boarding school in Aix-en-Provence. Solari was one of the few boys at school who befriended Zola and didn't taunt him for his lisp. Zola championed Solari's sculptures on numerous occasions and, in fact, a bust by Solari decorates Zola's tombstone in Montmartre cemetery. A nice association copy.

        Two Page Autograph Letter Signed

      - Two page Autograph Letter Signed ("Booker T. Washington"), on both sides of Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute stationery, dated 10 December 1884, to Mary C. Shannon of Newton, Massachusetts. Washington expresses his appreciation for the kind words of Shannon, refers to his meeting with Shannon at her Summer home, and mentions sending Shannon some "little books." He also mentions that "The school is very full of earnest and promising young men and women; and our work never looked more encouraging than now." Old folds from mailing, else fine. Washington was, and needed to be, a relentless fundraiser for the school, founded in 1881 with only $2,000 provided by the state of Alabama. His letters, especially on fundraising issues, are not uncommon, but letters written out fully by him (as opposed to secretarially) are scarce. Shannon was a wealthy New England woman who, in one form or another, financially supported African-American education efforts for forty years, dying in 1887. Despite some increasingly revisionist history about Washington's perceived role as an accommodationist, few individuals of any race or time period compiled such a record of accomplishment in the face of more concerted opposition. A nice letter handwritten relatively early in Washington's thirty-four year tenure at Tuskegee.

        Autograph Letter, Signed, from Frances Willard to Dr. Alice B. Stockham, regarding the latter's new book

      Evanston, Ill, 1884. 2pp. on a single sheet of WNCTU stationery. 1 vols. Old fold lines. Minor wear. Contemporary manuscript notation at top of sheet. Very good plus. 2pp. on a single sheet of WNCTU stationery. 1 vols. Letter written by Frances Willard to Dr. Alice B. Stockham, thanking Stockham for sending along a copy of her book on childbirth and women's health. Willard was prominent in both the suffrage and temperance movements, and was influential in the passage of the 18th and 19th amendments (prohibition and votes for women, respectively); she also helped found the Woman's National Christian Temperance Union in 1874. Willard's platform of "Home Protection" as the premise behind suffrage was designed to appeal to women everywhere. She held that if a woman had the right to vote, she could better protect her home and family and improve society. To Dr. Stockham, she writes: "Dear friend, Do not think me unappreciative of your kindness, but I am always so pre-occupied that I have time but to 'dip' into any book, no matter how excellent. I have thought yours of this class so far as I had opportunity & could judge. My sister brought me one, loaned by you (when I was ill) of unique & most interesting character. I doubt not she has read it more at length than I, as I had to leave home when barely up again. This hasty line is to assure you of my appreciation of your kindness in sending the book."

Additionally a sprig of mistletoe appears on the rear wrap.The illustrations are used to illustrate handwritten manuscript poems which are tipped onto larger leaves from an interesting group of Miner's associates: Reverend Ovid Miner, upstate New York Congregationalist Minister, abolitionist, conductor on the Underground Railroad, and close associate of Frederick Douglass; Professor Charles Wesley Bennett, educator and archaeologist who secured the Ranke Library for the newly founded Syracuse University; Reverend Minot J. Savage, a controversial Unitarian Minster who was the first prominent American clergyman to write extensively reconciling Darwinian evolution with religion; and the poet and abolitionist John Greenleaf Whittier, whose eight line excerpt from his poem "The Clear Vision" is written in his characteristic purple ink.A beautifully conceived and completed project by an important woman botanical illustrator, with her illustrations accompanying poems by notables of her time. Unique. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        REDWOOD And LUMBERING In CALIFORNIA FORESTS

      San Francisco: E. Cherry, 1884. 1st edition (Cowan I, p. 186; Cowan II, p. 525; Bothamley 7). Original brown cloth binding. Green patterned paper eps. Housed in a custom chemise & quarter-leather slipcase. Binding shows wear, with a some cloth loss [two horizontal strips, 1" wide] to rear board, with board showing. First gathering coming loose. The last quarter of the text block has a tide-line in upper & right margins [not affecting text]. Prior owner inscriptions to first blank page (including presentation inscription to Dollar [unknown inscriber]). Occasional marginal note. Some photographs with age fading to edges, though not adversely affecting the overall image. A Good+ to About VG copy of an important book of California history.. [2], ii, 107, [1 (blank)] pp. Pp 77 - 107 Kellogg's "Essay Upon Redwood." Illustrated with 24 mounted, original albumen photographs, with 15 captioned in purple ink. A Palmquist listing, these herein vs. the 73 known photographs used, supplied on request. 4to. 11-1/4" x 8-3/8" Kurutz, in his California Books Illustrated by Original Photographs, regards this publication by Cherry is "one of the finest examples" of books using photographs to promote an industry. After looking at the images contained herein, we have to agree. Regarding the use of photographs in this work, Cherry himself states in his preliminary matter, "The object desired to be attained in presenting views by the photographic process is, to set aside all doubt as to the enormous growth of the Redwood ... Inasmuch as engravings are usually cut from sketches, drawn perhaps by enthused artists, perfect satisfaction is not given; but with photographic views, which cannot lie, argument as to truthfulness is unnecessary." This copy inscribed to Robert Dollar, the prominent Californian that made his name, and fortune, in the lumber & shipping businesses- in his 1983 BCC facsimile reproduction, Palmquist notes one intended audience for this work was investors, so one can't help but imagine its impact on Dollar, perhaps occasioning his 1888 move from Michigan to San Rafael, as well as his subsequent forays into the California lumber industry.
