"All modern literature comes from one book by Mark Twain. It's the best book we've had. All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing since." - Earnest Hemingway Mark Twain's momentous book Huckleberry Finn has been the source of arguments, discussion, and controversy since it first appeared. It has been reprinted countless times and is still considered to be one of the most popular American novels, if not the most popular.

Very pleasing red morocco by Bayntun (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), covers with two frames formed by simple gilt rules, the inner frame with cornerpieces of stylized fleurs-de-lys, raised bands, spine gilt in double-ruled compartments with central lily and open dot corners, very pretty intricate floral gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Original red cloth covers bound in at the rear. With frontispiece and many illustrations in the text. BAL 3414. Spine slightly and evenly a darker red, a touch of rubbing to joints and extremities, two small closed marginal tears, other trivial imperfections internally, but still a fine copy, the text clean, fresh, and smooth, and the appealing binding lustrous and with only minimal wear. This is the first printing of the great American novel, preceding the U.S. issue by three months, in a fine leather binding by Bayntun. Twain's most acclaimed novel, and perhaps the greatest novel of the 19th century, it is the classic tale of the American rite of passage, set on the Mississippi. Our binding is a good example of the Bayntun firm's elegantly simple decorative work, offered here in very appealing condition: even the original cloth binding at the back--which is almost always found in deplorable shape--is clean and pleasing.

WILLIAM TECUMSEH SHERMAN
St. Louis, Missouri, 1884. Sherman trashes his wife's devotion to the Catholic Church, discusses avoiding the great danger of being nominated to run for the presidency, and tries to convince his late chief-of-staff's widow that she is not crazy, but simply needs a man's company. WILLIAM TECUMSEH SHERMAN.Autograph Letter Signed, to Mrs [Mary] Audenried. St. Louis, Missouri, June 9, 1884. 8 pp octavo, On Sherman's imprinted stationery.Complete Transcript912 Garrison Avenue,St. Louis, Mo., June 9, 1884Dear Mrs Audenried,I was pained by and [nauseous] at receiving your letter of the 6th, giving copy of part of Lizzie's letter. All this has been withheld from me. I know that Ellen took exception to Mrs. Reid using her name to get Florence into the Convent at Manhattanville. I approved of it entirely and so wrote to the Lady Superior, and I had supposed the whole matter had been dropped. Lizzie is a good girl, but sensitive about her mother, and what has passed between you and her I have no knowledge whatever, and do not want to enquire into. With Mrs S the Church is more sacred than the Creator himself, the latter may err, but the former never any allusion to it is like the red flag to the wild bull and she loses all reason and sense. She would sacrifice every thing on earth to the Church, her children even, and she would be made supremely happy if I would give up name, fame, country, everything & become an Irish Catholic drayman. Better let the matter rest, and it will blow over, for she will soon "come round," and Lizzie will be only too willing to follo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Verne, Jules [original text by] ; Ohira, Sanji [translated by] ; Hattori, Seiichi [corrected by].
Shitsusha; Kakubari Eizaburo 1884-1885, Tokyo. The first Japanese edition of Jules Verne`s classic science fiction novel `Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea` (originally published in 1870) published under that title, complete in two volumes and with numerous black and white illustrations. This translation by Ohira Sanji was published 7 months after the first Japanese translation (titled `Sixty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea`). Considering that Japanese translations of English classics in the Meiji period were typically published several decades after the original, this translation was produced fairly quickly, suggesting the slightly earlier edition proved popular. Translations of Verne`s works are now credited with being at least partially if not wholly responsible for introducing the genre of science fiction to Japan. In 1886, after the publication of this set, the word `kagaku shosetsu` was introduced into the Japanese language as a direct translation of `science fiction`. The translation of `Twenty Thousand Leagues` was particularly notable for introducing a style typical of `pulp science fiction` (i.e. emphasis on action over characterisation and narrative style) to Japan. Many science fiction novels by Japanese authors published after Verne`s translations strongly bore his influence, like Shunro Oshikawa`s famous `Undersea Warship` series. Original boards. Ex-ownership stamp to first page of v.1. Each volume includes 12 leaves of black and white illustrations (including one duplicate). 2 v., complete. 18.2x12.2cm. 223 + 7, 262 p. Text in Japanese.

There is no proper title-page or publishing da6ta anywhere in the book. Date is taken from the etchings, and Boston is the location of all the advertisers.

TWAIN, Mark.
1884 1st French ed Adventures of Tom Sawyer Mark Twain Huck Finn American Lit First French edition of one of the most-recognizable American novels, Mark Twain’s ‘Adventures of Tom Sawyer’ – the first novel Twain wrote entirely by himself (MacDonnell). The opportunity to own a first edition of any Twain is uncommon, but ‘Tom Sawyer’ is the high-spot in many collectors’ libraries. ‘Huckleberry Finn’ also has the same appeal, but ‘Tom Sawyer’ does not carry the controversy like ‘Finn’ does. By the time Mark Twain had passed away, ‘Tom Sawyer’ had gained so much fame and prominence that it was without-a-doubt his most successful and top-selling book. This rare first French edition was published in Paris and translated out of English by William Hughes. The illustrations and vignettes in this edition are from Achille Sirouy.

(Doughty, Charles M) Macmillan, Alexander
London: 24 April 1884. 3 pages on a bifolium of Macmillan & Co. letterhead. 1 vols. 12mo. 'Upon no theory of scholarship is the style tolerable ...'. Remarkable letter from publisher Alexander Macmillan to Trelawney Saunders, India Office cartographer, concerning the earliest responses to Charles M. Doughty's Travels in Arabia Deserta, the literary record of his two years' residence in the Arabian peninsula: "Not once or twice but many times have attempts been made to read Mr Doughty's MS, by ourselves as well as by one of the ablest men we know. Upon no theory of scholarship is the style tolerable. Your parallel with Carlyle is wholly inapposite. We have a letter written by the Rev Dr Badger in which he says "The singularly simple author entertained a latent vision of improving modern English by means of his book, but I told him plainly that no publisher would print it in its present form, and that if he wished to get readers for his travels he must get his MS rewritten." Personally I like Mr Doughty exceedingly and should have been glad to publish his book, if it had been publishable which it is not. I quite agree with what you say about the inadvisability of his book being altered by any one but himself, and do not think Dr Badger's suggestion, that it should be rewritten by another, practicable. Your map of Arabia seems excellent. Ever Yours A. Macmillan P.S. if you are passing this way I should be glad to see you." Doughty presented a paper on his travels to the Royal Geographical Society in November 1883, but it was only in 1884 that the manuscript of Arabia Deserta b … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARX, KAROL [KARL]. - [FIRST POLISH EDITION OF THE BIBLE OF MARXISM]
[Weimar, Gustaf Uszman] for E.L. Kasprowicz, Lipsk [Leipzig], 1884-[89]. Large 4to. Bound in a lovely brown half calf with five raised bands and gilt title to spine. Title-page with a few closed tears and with a tear with a bit of paper-loss to the top, affecting the "A" in "KAROL", which has then been touched up - very nicely done. Verso of title-page with stamps from Warsaw Public Library. Last leaf also with a couple of marginal closed/repaired tears. Apart from the very nicely restored tears to the first and last leaf, this is an excellent, very nice and clean copy that seems unusually fresh and presentable. VII, (1), 325, (1) pp. ¶ Very rare first edition of the first Polish translation of Marx' revolutionizing main work, "The Capital", which was clandestinely printed in Germany and then smuggled into Poland. The Polish translation, which is much rarer than the first Russian edition, and thus of the utmost scarcity, was illegally printed in Germany, with the mediation of the translator Kasprowicz (who worked for Brockhaus), by G. Uszman in Weimar (far enough from Prussia for the government not to be too concerned with the socialist activities of Polish students) and was then smuggled, mostly via Leipzig and Torún, into Russian Poland. It appeared in three parts, from 1884 to 1889. The translation, which was mainly done from the French, was the work of the hugely influential Polish socialist group, the Krusinsk-ites, which counted Stanislaw Krusinski, Ludwik Krzywicki (who corresponded directly with Marx himself), Mieczyslaw Brzezinski, Kazimierz Plawinski, and Jozef Si … [Click Below for Full Description]
