        Höhere Web- & Fabrikantenschule Werdau i/S. [Late 19th-century German Textile Manuscript]

      NP, Werdau 1885 - Elephant folio. Unpaginated. [80] leaves. Original half cloth over paper covered boards, with title lettered in gold on front cover. This striking manuscript is a late 19th-century German textile student workbook containing handwritten notes analyzing weaving patterns of various fabrics, yard runs, roping runs, mill arithmetic, etc. Includes drafts, hand-drawn diagrams, hand-colored patterns and mounted fabric samples (swatches). The mounted diagrammatic weaving pattern designs, at their simplest, have the quality of fine folk art, and the 7 full-page drawings of looms in the 'Jacquard' section are simply stunning. The work is presented in five sections covering various aspects of textiles and manufacturing process. Each of the five sections is preceded by an attractive handwritten title: Bindungslehre; Jacquard und Jacquard - Zeichnen; Muster - Ausnehmen / Muster - Berechnung; Musterberechnen; and Componieren. One mounted textile sample, and two original mounted colored diagrammatic designs for weaving patterns are dated '1885'. This workbook belonged to a student who attended the Higher School for Weaving at Werdau, a town located in Saxony (Germany), whose chief industries in the late 19th century were cotton, wool-spinning and the weaving of cloth. In all, this impressive manuscript contains 356 mounted and 19 loose diagrammatic weaving pattern designs, and 75 mounted and 6 loose textile samples. Text within printed red decorative borders. Binding rubbed along edges, and closed tears along front joint. Sporadic darkening along outer margin of leaves, not affecting text or samples. Text in German. Binding in overall fair, interior in good+, samples and waving patterns in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES

      1885. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1885. Original blue cloth, beveled. First Edition, first printing (which consisted of 1000 copies). Stevenson began writing these verses as early as 1881: supposedly after perusing through Kate Greenaway's BIRTHDAY BOOK FOR CHILDREN, he observed "These are rather nice rhymes, and I don't think they will be difficult to do," and then proceeded to try his hand at them. It is hard to believe that the author of DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE and THE BODY-SNATCHER also wrote these sprightly juvenile rhymes, voiced as if by a child. The book is dedicated to Alison Cunningham, "Cummy," his childhood nurse-maid.~The spine lettering of this copy includes an apostrophe shaped like the digit "7", and the word "OF" is about the same size as the word "A"; some copies have a curved apostrophe, and some have a smaller "OF" (priority among these variations has been debated, but nothing is conclusive). The top edge of the pages is gilded, with the other edges uncut, which is the usual primary state. Inside, this copy has the ink-stamp "Printed in Great Britain" at the foot of the title verso, which we have seen before; though not mentioned by bibliographers, this would likely designate a copy of the first edition that was initially sent overseas (most likely to a colony).~This is a very good-plus copy, with a little rubbing at the very extremities of the volume but with scarcely any other wear or soil; the front paste-down bears two bookplates -- that of Luke A. Ionides (1837-1924, friend of Whistler and patron/collector of the arts), plus another partially removed. Beinecke 193; Princeton 20A copy 3; Prideaux pp 35-39.

        ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN (Tom Sawyer's Comrade). Scene: The Mississippi Valley. Time: Forty to Fifty Years Ago.

      Charles L. Webster, New York 1885 - VERY GOOD TRUE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION AND FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION. Bright gold accents to black pictorial front cover and spine over green cloth. Tight, clean and square binding. Tight joints and hinges. Straight spine. Frontispiece drawing of Huckleberry Finn by E.W. Kemble; frontispiece portrait of Twain's bust sculpted by Karl Gerhardt; illustrated throughout with an additional 173 charming black and white illustrations by E.W. Kemble. Smooth, pale peach page block generally clean and unmarred with no bookplate, annotations, salient marks, tears or folds; no loose pages. Entirely original in unrepaired condition. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is considered Twain's masterpiece: a vivid depiction of people and daily life along the Mississippi River. Huck narrates, in Southern antebellum vernacular, his adventures with runaway slave, Jim, as they raft their way to freedom. Traditional points by BAL, Johnson, Blanck and McBride have proven inconclusive due to the random nature of electrotype printing. Our copy has all of only three first printing points: "Decided" on page 9, "88" on page 13 and "with the was" on page 57. Our desirable first state tissued frontispiece, with cloth and Heliotype credit, has no relation to printing order. Bindings of leather, blue cloth to match Tom Sawyer, and green cloth also have no relation to printing order. (MacDonnell, Collecting Mark Twain, IV. Huck Finn Among the Issue-Mongers) 1885 stated. 8vo (8 1/2 in. x 6 1/2 in.); 366 pp. Extremities lightly worn; graceful 1885 signature; scattered small stains; last few leaves lightly foxed; sturdy hinge with paper tears; trace of blind-stamped name of signer. Well-preserved first American edition and first illustrated edition of this defining novel of American literature. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Shucho Gafu (=Pictorial Monograph of Birds), in 3 volumes, housed in clasped chitsu case

      Tokyo: Kinkado, 1885. First edition.. One tissue guard with small piece missing from the bottom outer corner, chitsu case with edge wear and some color restoration at corners; a bright and clean copy in near fine condition.. Pp. 75 leaves (un-numbered); 42 double-page hand-colored plates, 63 single-page hand-colored plates, 1 page of Japanese printing at the front and rear of each volume (page at the rear has two red seals), all pages within black frames. Original salmon-colored patterned wrappers, with original printed title label on the front of each cover, string-bound in Japanese-style (fukuro-toji), in original bone-clasped chitsu case, covered in dark blue silk, with printed title label on the front cover, lg 8vo (250 x 177 mm). This is the complete rare first edition of Numata's wood block prints of birds in their native habitats colored by hand. Numata's illustrations place much more emphasis on birds than on plants and, indeed, sometimes omit the latter entirely or present the plants in outline form only. The pages in these three volumes are imprinted with mica in Japanese double construction, and there is considerable usage of gauffrage in the production of the attractive plates. A previous owner has attached a very small typewritten label in the upper outer margin of each plate that lists the common name in English of each bird. Kashu Numata (1838-1901) came from Nagoya and was sufficiently well known that he received an imperial commission. This first printing of his work by Kinkado, published in 1885 (18th year of Meiji), is very rare. No ownership marks.

        Cabinet Card Photograph of a Woman by Chicago's Only Professional Woman Photographer

      Chicago: Miss Nikodem. [circa 1885]. Image measures "4" x 5.5" on a 4.25" x 6.5" card printed at the bottom with the imprint of Miss Nikodem with her Chicago address. Slight wear, just about fine. Excellent and beautifully composed image of an unidentified and well-dressed bespectacled woman with an elaborate hat, possibly in mourning dress, with rich photographic tones.According to Origin, Growth, and Usefulness of the Chicago Board of Trade: Its Leading Members, and Representative Business Men in other Branches of Trade (1885): "Miss A.M. Nikodem, Photographic Artist. No. 701 West Madison Street. - One of the most popular and finely appointed photographic studios in Chicago is that conducted by Miss A.M. Nikodem, who succeeded Mr. M. T. Baldwin one year ago. This lady, who is regarded as one of the most skillful and accomplished photographic artists in the city, occupies an entire two-storied building completely equipped with all modern improvements and appliances and her elegantly furnished parlors are the resort of the elite of Chicago. Miss Nikodem is the only lady in the city who give personal attention to the taking of pictures, etc., and having had an extended practical and theoretical training she has attained a marked perfection in her art. In social circles Miss Nikodem occupies a prominent position both as a skillful artist and estimable lady, while in the business world she is held in high esteem as an enterprising and capable woman."Nikodem occupied the studio at this address from 1885-1891, and then moved to another location. 1895 is the last year in which she seems to be listed in Chicago city guides. Despite her prominence, photographs from her studio are exceptionally uncommon. Nikodem's skill is fully on display in this portrait. The three or four other examples of her work we could find, all in library special collections, are all of women or girls, and they display a uniform artistic excellence and technical photographic skill. .

        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

      New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. First American edition. Near Fine. A beautiful copy in the publisher's green cloth, stamped in black and gilt. Contains the three main first printing points: "Huck Decided" on p. 9; "Him and another Man" listed on p. 88; and "with the was" on p. 57. The other leaves were assembled at random and have no bearing on whether a copy is first or second printing, although variant states exist. A Near Fine copy with bright gilt and a tight page block. Very slight wear at the spine ends and corners and previous owner's markings on the front paste-down and first blank. Without repair or work of any kind. On the whole, an excellent copy of the book that Hemingway claimed was the source for all modern American literature and "the best book we've had." BAL 3415. MacDonnell, 31. "We are also presented with a chapter from an unpublished work by the writer, detailing the adventures of a Southwestern boy a quarter of a century ago, which places before us in vivid colors the rough, hilarious, swaggering, fighting, superstitious ways of the bygone raftsmen. Rude, sturdy, unflinching, and raw though the picture is, it is likely to stand a long while as a wonderful transcript from nature, and as a memorial of the phase of existence which is described that will not easily be surpassed in the future. ("The Atlantic Monthly," September 1883). Near Fine.

        Brand-New Ballads by Charles G. Leland, ?Hans Breitmann,? with Many Illustrations by Hal Ludlow, Thomas Dalziel, and the Author

      Small 8vo. London: ?Fun? Office, 1885. Small 8vo, vi, 149 pages, illustrated throughout. A.N.s. by Leland tipped in between front endpapers, with tissue guards; original pen & ink sketch by Leland tipped onto flyleaf. Engraved bookplates of the Dalziel family and of William Harris Arnold. Contemporary deep red straight-grain patterned calf, backstrip gilt, upper cover rehinged. First edition; a second edition was issued in London later in 1885, but apparently there was no American edition. Charles Godfrey Leland (1824-1903) was a busy journalist and editor until his "Hans Breitmann Ballads," humorous verses written in an atrocious German accent, made him famous around the world. He was also a keen student of folklore and language and is still cited as an authority (sometimes a false authority) on Gypsies and Witchcraft. Leland contributed many comic poems to "Fun", a humorous periodical conducted for many years by the Dalziels, the large and highly skilled clan of illustrators and engravers that played a key role in English illustration of the Victorian era. On December 25, 1880, Leland dispatched from Philadelphia to the Dalziels in London the manuscript of a poem, "The Legend of St. Anthony," along with a sketch illustrating the poem and a brief letter of transmittal. The poem tells of a nouveau riche New Yorker who commissions a Florentine artist to paint his features into a portrait of the early Church father St. Anthony. When the portrait arrives in New York, it is publicly unveiled, and Mr. Anthony is humiliated to see that the painter has depicted him in dirty rags and almost hidden behind a huge pig, the symbol of the patron saint of swine. In his letter Leland declares that his poem is based on an actual incident that occurred more than thirty years previously.Clearly the Dalziels were charmed by the poem and illustration; and, after this book (printed at their own Caxton Press) was issued in wrappers, they had it elegantly bound with the letter and sketch inserted and affixed their own splendid wood-engraved circular bookplate, a tour de force of complex patterns around an intricate interlocking monogram of the letters in the word Dalziel. Later this volume was acquired by William Harris Arnold (1854-1923), one of the most eminent American book collectors, who was especially fond of association material. [BAL 11628.]

Stevenson October 1885." Margaret Isabella (Balfour) Stevenson (1829- 1897), or ?"Maggie?" (as she was known to her family), married Thomas Stevenson in 1848 and gave birth to RLS in 1850. She had a strong and loving relationship with her son. Although quarrels between RLS and his father about religion, his career and his marriage were upsetting to the family, the family remained close. After her husband died in 1887, Maggie went with RLS and Fanny on their travels to America and the South Seas and even settled with them in Vailima. She returned to Edinburgh to live with her sister after RLS died. BEINECKE 195. HAYWARD 297. PRIDEAUX A35.
