        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

      New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885 Illustrated with 174 illustrations by Edward Windsor Kemble. First edition in sheep binding, with many of the first issue points, including: conjugate title leaf with the copyright notice dated 1884 as usual, the illustration "Him and Another Man" listed as page 88 on page 13, "with the was" on page 57, scarce first state of the "Who Do You Reckon It Is?" illustration with the curved fly line to Silas Phelp's trousers, third state page 155 with the final five larger than the first, page 161 lacking the signature mark, leaf 238 pasted under the terminal endpaper, second state frontispiece with "Karl Gerhardt" to the bust, printed in black. Bound in the publisher's full light brown sheep binding, with four raised bands to the spine, red and black contrasting labels to the spine, spine lettered in gilt, speckled edges. An excellent copy, with some light wear to the extremities, spine rebacked in matching sheep, with the original sheep boards laid on, some minor traces of offsetting to the endpapers, loss to the corner of page 141/142, otherwise bright and fresh pages. Overall, an extremely attractive copy with more of the scarce first issue points than usual. BAL 3415. This copy of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of 2,500 copies of the first American edition published in the sheep binding. These copies slightly preceded the first editions issued in the publisher's blue and green cloth bindings. Accordingly, while nearly all of the first editions of this text contain some corrected issue points, the sheep bound copies contain many of the scarcer, earliest issue points. Specifically, the illustration "Who Do You Reckon It Is?" was corrected in nearly all of the cloth bound copies with a cancel leaf and has only been seen in the original state "in early prospectuses and leather bound copies of the published book." Most copies of Huckleberry Finn in all binding variants have a third state title leaf, as "no copy of the published book has been seen, or reported, with the copyright notice dated 1885." Additionally, the state of the frontispiece is mutually exclusive of the state of the text as both were published separately; as the BAL authors note: "It must be emphasized that the portrait frontispiece is an insert and has no relation to the sheets of the book." This sheep bound copy possesses the scarcest first issue points, with a few corrected points as usual. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a pseudo companion novel to Twain's highly successful The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876); although both are set in the antebellum South, Tom Sawyer is the tale of a young boy's mischievous adventures, while Huckleberry Finn involves a disenfranchised youth's moral dilemmas about social conflict. Huckleberry Finn tells the story of Tom Sawyer's friend Huckleberry Finn, a youth who runs away from his alcoholic father and befriends Jim, a run-away African-American slave seeking freedom in the North. The dialog of the text features local dialects drawn from Twain's experiences living in the South. When it was first published in the United States in 1885, Huckleberry Finn was highly scrutinized and was banned by several libraries. Interestingly, the text was banned not for its saturation of racist vocabulary and prejudiced world-views, but for its depiction of criminal, lower class white Americans. Although it continued to be challenged in the 20th century for its depiction and treatment of African-Americans, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn remains one of the Great American Novels. Indeed, Ernest Hemingway proclaimed that it was the beginning of American literature: "There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since.". Illus. by Kemble, Edward Windsor. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        A Child's Garden of Verses

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1885. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original quarter cloth (with the spine cloth in blue and the boards being of a light blue hue); the uncommon First American Edition of Stevenson's classic volume of verses for children published one month following the UK edition. The UK edition was comprised of only 1,000 copies and, while the number of copies comprising the American first edition has not been established, the American first appears less often than does the UK first. This copy is in very good condition with the boards and cloth spine moderately soiled and somewhat rubbed, the board corners rubbed through to the underlying boards, and an 1896 library stamp to the title page. The pages (top edge gilded) show some expected age-toning but are in Very Good condition. All in all, this is a Very Good copy of a quite uncommon book.

        VITICULTURE And VINICULTURE In CALIFORNIA. Statements and Extracts from Reports of the Board of State Viticultural Commissioners, Prepared Specially for Distribution at the New Orleans World&#39;s Fair, A. D. 1885

      Sacramento, CA: State Office... James J. Ayers, Supt. State Printing, 1885.. Sacramento, CA:: State Office... James J. Ayers, Supt. State Printing,. 1885.. 8-1/2" x 6". 1st printing (Amerine & Borg 698, Gabler G12610). [7], 8 - 42 pp.. Light blue printed paper wrappers.. Light wear to wrappers (slight sunning to edges, rear wrapper. detached for 1" at top with small chip). Otherwise, a scarce VG+ item.. This small text contains a wealth of information regarding California viticulture and the defense of the wine-making community. For example: "Viticulture, in professing to fulfill all the proper demands of the people as a progressive industry, conducive to public prosperity, happiness, and civilization, bases its claims for popular recognition, and State and National encouragement and protection, on the principles comprised in the foregoing general propositions. It has its enemies among political economists, who do not rightfully share our happy conditions of progress; and among reformers, whose notions of political power would lead them, if successful, to add to their present follies the religious intolerance of the past... In the near future the wine dealers may prepare also to provide a market for clarets of high Medoc character, true high class Burgundy, true Sauternes, and Cognac types that will rival the best produced and surpass any in general commerce... It is to the physicians and scientific students of life, who do not expect any millennium, that society should look for the reform of alcoholic abuses; and to the wholesome restraints and discipline of youth in homes that permanent progress in social growth and healthfulness must be traced. As to criminal acts committed during alcoholic excesses, we may assume that intemperance is the result of criminal conditions of the mind, which sets no restraints upon ambition and desire. AS to insanity, who can tell whether it is not the insane disposition that leads to alcoholism? ...Our industry is forced to a consideration of these questions, not only in self- defense against erratic and impractical reformers, but also because our success largely depends upon the general good and prosperity of the people." & & Subject headings include: Viticulture Considered Industrially from the Standpoint of National Importance, the Growth and Present Condition of Viticulture in California, the Question of Over Production, Shipping Grapes and Raisins, Extent of Possible Viticulture in California, Select Locations for Viticulture, the Chemical Constituents of Soils & Suggestions Concerning the Development of Commerce in Viticultural Products in the United States (Prepared Especially for this Edition). An important California wine item for dedicated collectors and institutions. & Rare in the trade.

        ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN

      , 1885. 1885. (Tom Sawyer&#39;s Comrade.) With One Hundred and Seventy-Four Illustrations. New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. First American Edition of Twain&#39;s classic tale of boyhood in mid-19th Century America. HUCK FINN has quite a number of issue points, and in some instances bibliographers disagree on priority; what is generally agreed-upon today, however, is that there are three important issue points (with actual changes of text), plus numerous unimportant issue points (due to variant preliminary leaves supplied from different sources, or due to type-slippage during the print run). This copy has all three "important" issue points in their first state: (1) p. [9]: "...Huck Decided to Leave..." is listed as part of the heading for Chapter VI (later changed to "Decides"); (2) p. [13]: "Him and another Man" is wrongly listed as at page 88 (later corrected to page 87); (3) p. 57: "...with the was...", later corrected to "...with the saw...".~For those who care what the unimportant issue points are, they are: (1) frontispiece portrait: "Heliotype," with scarf visible; (2) title page: a cancel, with copyright dated 1884 on the verso; (3) p. 143: "Col." at upper right corner of plate lacks the "l." (type slippage); (4) p. 155: final "5" of page number in a different font (type slippage and replacement); (5) p. 161: signature mark "11" missing; (6) p. 283: corrected plate bound in, as usual.~As for condition, this is an attractive, near-fine copy. There is only the slightest of wear at the binding extremities, and the rear endpaper is partly cracked, but the cover design remains bright and sharp and, most important, NO restoration has been performed on this book. Blanck 3415; McBride pp 92-110.

        VITICULTURE And VINICULTURE In CALIFORNIA. Statements and Extracts from Reports of the Board of State Viticultural Commissioners, Prepared Specially for Distribution at the New Orleans World&#39;s Fair, A. D. 1885

      Sacramento, CA:: State Office... James J. Ayers, Supt. State Printing,. 1885.. 8-1/2" x 6". 1st printing (Amerine & Borg 698, Gabler G12610). [7], 8 - 42 pp.. Light blue printed paper wrappers.. Light wear to wrappers (slight sunning to edges, rear wrapper. detached for 1" at top with small chip). Otherwise, a scarce VG+ item.. This small text contains a wealth of information regarding California viticulture and the defense of the wine-making community. For example: "Viticulture, in professing to fulfill all the proper demands of the people as a progressive industry, conducive to public prosperity, happiness, and civilization, bases its claims for popular recognition, and State and National encouragement and protection, on the principles comprised in the foregoing general propositions. It has its enemies among political economists, who do not rightfully share our happy conditions of progress; and among reformers, whose notions of political power would lead them, if successful, to add to their present follies the religious intolerance of the past... In the near future the wine dealers may prepare also to provide a market for clarets of high Medoc character, true high class Burgundy, true Sauternes, and Cognac types that will rival the best produced and surpass any in general commerce... It is to the physicians and scientific students of life, who do not expect any millennium, that society should look for the reform of alcoholic abuses; and to the wholesome restraints and discipline of youth in homes that permanent progress in social growth and healthfulness must be traced. As to criminal acts committed during alcoholic excesses, we may assume that intemperance is the result of criminal conditions of the mind, which sets no restraints upon ambition and desire. AS to insanity, who can tell whether it is not the insane disposition that leads to alcoholism? ...Our industry is forced to a consideration of these questions, not only in self- defense against erratic and impractical reformers, but also because our success largely depends upon the general good and prosperity of the people." Subject headings include: Viticulture Considered Industrially from the Standpoint of National Importance, the Growth and Present Condition of Viticulture in California, the Question of Over Production, Shipping Grapes and Raisins, Extent of Possible Viticulture in California, Select Locations for Viticulture, the Chemical Constituents of Soils & Suggestions Concerning the Development of Commerce in Viticultural Products in the United States (Prepared Especially for this Edition). An important California wine item for dedicated collectors and institutions. Rare in the trade.
