Étretat jeudi (29 octobre 1885) Enveloppe autographe oblitérée. « L'état de ma vue m'énerve au dernier point, me rend sauvage et mécontent de tout. » Maupassant et ses névralgies de tête. « Madame, Je suis en effet un peu souffrant, et je vous aurai répondu hier, si je n'avais pas gardé le lit. J'ai des névralgies de tête (internes) abominables qui, depuis près de trois semaines me tiennent enfermé. Mais cela n'est rien, et si mes yeux ne se troublaient pas de plus en plus, au point de me mettre dans l'impossibilité de lire ou d'écrire plus de dix minutes de suite, je supporterais patiemment ces petites misères. Par exemple l'état de ma vue m'énerve au dernier point, me rend sauvage et mécontent de tout ; et c'est un peu par suite de cette mauvaise humeur que je suis resté jusqu'ici absolument seul à Étretat. Votre petit mot m'a fait un vrai et profond plaisir ; et il est cause que je vous parle de ces ennuis de santé, ce que je n'aime point faire d'ordinaire. Je vous verrai bientôt j'espère.

YAMAZAKI, Toshinobu, artist
1885. 24 folding leaves, and one blank leaf at beginning & end. Large 8vo (260 x 185 mm.), orig. brown wrappers (extremities a trifle worn), label on upper cover, new stitching. [Japan: ca. 1885].A delightful album containing 99 exquisite studies by Toshinobu Yamazaki (1857-86), the precocious printmaker and illustrator of books and newspapers, as well as an obstreperous disciple of the great Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-92). Accounts vary on much of Yamazaki's life, but scholars agree that he grew up in Edo and first studied under Utagawa Kunisada. At the age of 13, he began to train under the tutelage of Yoshitoshi, who recognized his talents and permitted him to incorporate Yoshitoshi's name into his own. Yamazaki's alleged theft of some of his master's drawings precipitated a move to Osaka, where he created illustrations for novels, including several by Udagawa Bunkai (1848-1930). Around 1880, Yamazaki fell victim to alcoholism, and his output plummeted. His final years were spent in Kyoto primarily as a newspaper illustrator; he died of meningitis at the age of 29.A number of the studies in this album bear an alternative signature employed by Yamazaki: Oju Toshinobu. This signature integrates Yoshitoshi's kanji characters, indicating Yamazaki's status as one of Yoshitoshi's favored students. All of the drawings are done by Yamazaki; several illustrations seem to be after some of Yoshitoshi's renderings. In Yamazaki's original studies, the influence of Yoshitoshi's graphic and theatrical style is evident throughout. Most of the images in the present volume depic … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mark Twain) Clemens, Samuel L
New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. First edition of Twain's masterpiece. Octavo, original publisher's decorated green cloth gilt to the spine and front panel. Profusely illustrated by E.W. Kemble. Numerous early state points, including: frontispiece portrait first state, title-leaf presumed second state; page 13 first state, page 57 first state, page 155 first state. Housed in a full custom morocco clamshell box. An unusually bright example. Twain initially conceived of the work as a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer that would follow Huckleberry Finn through adulthood. Beginning with a few pages he had removed from the earlier novel, Twain began work on a manuscript he originally titled Huckleberry Finn's Autobiography. Twain worked on the manuscript off and on for the next several years, ultimately abandoning his original plan of following Huck's development into adulthood. He appeared to have lost interest in the manuscript while it was in progress, and set it aside for several years. After making a trip down the Hudson River, Twain returned to his work on the novel. Upon completion, the novel's title closely paralleled its predecessor's: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade). Twain composed the story in pen on notepaper between 1876 and 1883. Paul Needham, stated, "What you see is [Clemens'] attempt to move away from pure literary writing to dialect writing." For example, Twain revised the opening line of Huck Finn three times. He initially wrote, "You will not know about me", which he changed to, "You do not know about me", before set … [Click Below for Full Description]

EXEMPLAIRE DE DÉDICACE OFFERT PAR EDMOND DE GONCOURT A OCTAVE UZANNE. Exemplaire sur papier ordinaire (il a été tiré 50 exemplaires de luxe sur papier de Hollande). Cet envoi lapidaire : "à Octave Uzanne, Edmond de Goncourt" s'explique aisément quand on sait que le même Edmond de Goncourt écrira dans son Journal le 20 septembre 1887 (soit 2 années plus tard) : « Uzanne, cet homme qui a une goutte de sperme extravasée dans l'œil. » La relation entre les deux hommes de lettres fut sans doute toujours assez froide. Octave Uzanne empiétait à cette époque sur les plates-bandes d'Edmond de Goncourt en s'intéressant au XVIIIe siècle et aux historiettes qui s'y rapportent. André Salmon écrit à propos d'Octave Uzanne qu'il avait "la réputation d'un disciple un peu cochon des Goncourt."

Royal Colonial Institute is now The Royal Commonwealth Society and was founded in 1868, as a non-political, learned organisation; a royal charter was granted in 1869, and a clubhouse opened in 1885.

A decent copy, by no means perfect, of the first edition of Mark Twain's American masterpiece with about 3 of the 7 first state issue points, regarded as one of the two or three most important pieces of American literature of the 19th century! (The others are probably "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne and "Moby Dick" by Hermann Melville.) In lower sections, I have detailed the issue points, edition, condition, edition history and states of this book. PLEASE take the time to read these sections before making inquiries. Thank you! The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain aka Samuel Clemens (author of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Life on the Mississippi, The Prince and the Pauper, A Yankee in King Arthur's Court, etc.) Hardcover First Edition - First Printing - Second State (or mixed) Charles L. Webster Green Cloth Issue 1884/1885. (there were also blue cloth, half-leather and sheep-skin issues) 366 pages and 174 illustrations. Includes about 4 (or 3) of the 7 issue points needed for a bona fide first edition/first state copy. The discrepancy of 4 or 3 depends upon how you define the corrected page number "155" with the second "5" stamped in (which appears in many first state copies and many other states).

1885. "All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn." -- Ernest Hemingway. "All right, then, I'll go to hell." - Huck, upon realizing he can't get himself to give Jim up. Here we offer a true first US edition of the classic American novel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens), published by Charles Webster and Company, New York, in 1885. (Twain purposely excluded the "The" from the title, as some of Huck's adventures were already included in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.) Many first issue points are possible with various versions of the first printing, including these present in this version: dated "1885" on title page and "1884" on copyright; the bust of Twain on the frontispiece bears the name of "Karl Gerhardt, Sc."; page 161 missing the signature "11" at the base of the page; hand-stamped second "5" in the page number on page 155. This is a very attractive first edition, densely illustrated, with ornately decorated boards, impressed with ink and gilt. This wonderful book comes with a special bonus: a full-sized modern reproduction of an actual pictorial newspaper ad from the February 27, 1885 Baltimore American advertising a reading by Twain and the novelist George Cable, known as the first modern Southern writer. Also included is a reprinting of various period reviews, advertisements, and newspaper articles referencing the novel and a bookmark with collectors' first edition notes. Boards are well worn, especially at the head and foot of the spine (please see pics). Endpapers are mostly intact with lig … [Click Below for Full Description]
