        Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade)

      Third Printing by Charles L. Webster And Company, New York: 1885. Very good- in the publisher's original decorated green cloth covered boards with a black on gilt title box on the spine and gilt decorations and black embossing on the front board. The end sheets are the original light tan paper with a small prior owner's stamp on the front paste down. The cloth at the lower tips of the boards and at the head and heel of the spine is worn and rubbed through with the cloth at both the head and heel of the spine fraying. There is also a rent to the cloth of approximately 1/2" at the fore edge of the rear board. The binding is beginning to loosen but both hinges and joints show no cracking or separation. There is however minor separation between the frontispiece and the tipped-in photographic bust of the author. This volume is a third printing based on the revised engraving on page 283 which is bound in. Additional points are as follows: the 1885 title page is not a cancel; the copyright page is dated 1884. Page 13 shows "Him and another Man" correctly listed on page 87. The 11th line from the bottom of page 57 is correctly written as "with the saw" instead of "with the was". The second "5" of "155" on page 155 is slightly larger. Page 283 is not a cancel but a corrected engraving. The fronticeportrait is tipped in with no tablecloth visible.

        Skerryvore: Original Plans for Proposed Alterations and Municipal Map locating Skerryvore

      Bournemouth: None, 1885 and 1900. First printing. Very Good +. ORIGINAL PLANS FOR AN ADDITION TO SKERRYVORE, Robert Louis Stevenson's home in Bournemouth where he had his famous dream and then wrote Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, among other famous works. TOGETHER WITH ORIGINAL PLAN AND SECTION OF MIDDLE ROAD (2 PAGES), WITH EACH DRAWING NOTING THE LOCATION OF SKERRYVORE and indicating the property owners along Middle Road (and, thus, many of the neighbors to Skerryvore). The house plans were prepared in 1900 for proposed modifications to the house by a successor in ownership and the Middle Road plans were prepared by a surveyor for the Bournemouth Commissioners in 1895. While there are some tears to each of the documents, they are in quite nice condition overall. Skerryvore, whose lawns ran down from the house to Alum Chine Road, is where Stevenson lived from 1884 until his departure for Samoa (where he died in 1894). The home was a "wedding present" from Stevenson's father to Stevenson and his wife, Fanny, four years after their marriage--most likely the father's attempt to keep his peripatetic son near to him in his last years--and was then inherited by Stevenson upon his father's death in 1887. Named after "Skerryvore", the tallest lighthouse in Scotland and one designed by his uncle, Alan Stevenson, who, like Stevenson's father, was a leading lighthouse engineer, the house was destroyed by German bombs on November 16, 1940. There now stands in its place a memorial garden containing a statue of the lighthouse for which the home was named. These ORIGINAL PLANS are unique to the market and likely comprise the only plans available, or hereafter likely to be available, for purchase. An important record of Stevenson's house and a rare opportunity for the Stevenson collector.

        The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade)

      438+[52 ad] pages with frontispiece and numerous illustrations. Small octavo (7 /2" x5 1/2") bound in original red cloth with gilt lettering to spine and cover and black decorative figures to cover and spine. First edition, precedes the American edition which was released in February 1885 and the British edition was released in December 1884.The Critical Reception: Contemporary Newspaper, Magazine Reviews The Hartford Courant Feb. 20, 1885 p. 2 In his latest story, Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade), by Mark Twain, Mr. Clemens has made a very distinct literary advance over Tom Sawyer, as an interpreter of human nature and a contributor to our stock of original pictures of American life. Still adhering to his plan of narrating the adventures of boys, with a primeval and Robin Hood freshness, he has broadened his canvas and given us a picture of a people, of a geographical region, of a life that is new in the world. The scene of his romance is the Mississippi river. Mr. Clemens has written of this river before specifically, but he has not before presented it to the imagination so distinctly nor so powerfully. Huck Finn's voyage down the Mississippi with the run away nigger Jim, and with occasionally other companions, is an adventure fascinating in itself as any of the classic outlaw stories, but in order that the reader may know what the author has done for him, let him notice the impression left on his mind of this lawless, mysterious, wonderful Mississippi, when he has closed the book. But it is not alone the river that is indelibly impressed upon the mind, the life that went up and down it and went on along its banks are projected with extraordinary power. Incidentally, and with a true artistic instinct, the villages, the cabins, the people of this river become startlingly real. The beauty of this is that it is apparently done without effort. Huck floating down the river happens to see these things and to encounter the people and the characters that made the river famous forty years ago--that is all. They do not have the air of being invented, but of being found. And the dialects of the people, white and black--what a study are they; and yet nobody talks for the sake of exhibiting a dialect. It is not necessary to believe the surprising adventures that Huck engages in, but no one will have a moment's doubt of the reality of the country and the people he meets. Another thing to be marked in the story is its dramatic power. Take the story of the Southern Vendetta--a marvelous piece of work in a purely literary point of view--and the episode of the duke and the king, with its pictures of Mississippi communities, both of which our readers probably saw in the Century magazine. They are equaled in dramatic force by nothing recently in literature. We are not in this notice telling the story or quoting from a book that nearly everybody is sure to read, but it is proper to say that Mr. Clemens strikes in a very amusing way certain psychological problems. What, for instance, in the case of Huck, the son of the town drunkard, perverted from the time of his birth, is conscience, and how does it work? Most amusing is the struggle Huck has with his conscience in regard to slavery. His conscience tells him, the way it has been instructed, that to help the runaway, nigger Jim to escape--to aid in stealing the property of Miss Watson, who has never injured him, is an enormous offense that will no doubt carry him to the bad place; but his affection for Jim finally induces him to violate his conscience and risk eternal punishment in helping Jim to escape. The whole study of Huck's moral nature is as serious as it is amusing, his confusion of wrong as right and his abnormal mendacity, traceable to his training from infancy, is a singular contribution to the investigation of human nature. These contradictions, however, do not interfere with the fun of the story, which has all the comicality, all the odd way of looking at life, all the whimsical turns of thought and expression that have given the author his wide fame. The story is so interesting so full of life and dramatic force, that the reader will be carried along irresistibly, and the time he loses in laughing he will make up in diligence to hurry along and find out how things come out. The San Francisco Chronicle March 15, 1885 p. 6 "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" must be pronounced the most amusing book Mark Twain has written for years. It is a more minute and faithful picture of Southwestern manners and customs fifty years ago than was "Life on the Mississippi," while in regard to the dialect it surpasses any of the author's previous stories in the command of the half-dozen species of patois which passed for the English language in old Missouri. Mark Twain may be called the Edison of our literature. There is no limit to his inventive genius, and the best proof of its range and originality is found in this book, in which the reader's interest is so strongly enlisted in the fortunes of two boys and a runaway negro that he follows their adventures with keen curiosity, although his common sense tells him that the incidents are as absurd and fantastic in many was as the "Arabian Nights." Here is where the genius and the human nature of the author come in. Nothing else can explain such a tour de force as this, in which the most unlikely materials are transmuted into a work of literary art. The plot is extremely simple. Huckleberry Finn, who appeared incidentally in the veracious adventures of Tom Sawyer, concludes to go down the Mississippi to get rid of his drunken father. He falls in with a runaway negro, and the book is given up to the adventures of this coupe on a raft on the river, re-enforced by two sharpers known as the Duke and the King, and afterward by Tom Sawyer. In many parts of the book, but especially at the outset, some of the conversations are unnecessarily spun out, on the style of the elder Dumas when he was writing at so much the word, but when the story gets under good headway it is remarkably well proportioned, and the interest is never allowed to flag for a moment. The very best episodes are those which detail the swindling schemes of the two river sharpers, who impose upon Huckleberry and the negro by declaring that they are scions of royalty. These chapters were printed in the Century under the title of "Royalty on the Mississippi," but they left the fate of the two heroes in doubt, so that most readers of the performances of the "Royal Nonesuch," and the personation of the two brothers from England will want to know what was the final result of their schemes. The incidental descriptions of character are always good. Take, for instance, this small picture of Huck's father--a typical Pike county drunkard: He was most 50, and he looked it. His hair was long and tangled and greasy and hung down, and you could see his eyes shining through it like he was behind vines. It was all black, no gray; so was his long, mixed-up whiskers. There warn't no colorin his face, where his face showed--it was white; not like another man's white, but a white to make a body sick, a whote to make a body's flesh crawl--a tree-toad white, a fish-belly white. As for his clothes--just rags, that was all. On the raft, while floating down the Mississippi, Huck has an excellent opportunity to exercise his gift for lying. This is simply phenomenal. The boy enjoys mendacity; he lies for the mere lust of lying, and the ingenuity with which he piles one fiction on top of another will excite the reader's wonder and admiration. Just before the runaways get fairly started, Huck visits a neighboring town to get information and encounters a farmer's wife. He is dressed up in an old calico gown and pretends to be a girl searching for her relations. The woman suspects his sex and tries various devices to ascertain if her suspicions are true. Among these is threading a needle and throwing a bar of lead at the rats which swarm around the house. Finally she makes Huck own up that he is a boy, and then gives him this sound advice in regard to personating a girl: "Don't you go about women in that old calico. You do a girl tolerable poor, but you might fool men, maybe. Bless you, child, when you set out to thread a needle, don't hold the thread still and fetch the needle up to it. Hold the needle still and poke the thread at it--that's the way a woman most always does, but a man always does 'tother way. And when you throw at a rat or anything hitch yourself up a-tiptoe and fetch your hand up over your head as awkward as you can, and miss your rat about six or seven foot. Throw stiff-armed from the shoulder, like there was a pivot there for it to turn on--like a girl; not from the wrist and elbow, with your arm out to one side, like a boy. And mind you, when a girl tries to catch anything in her lap she throws her knees apart; she don't clap them together the way you did when you catched the lump of lead. Why, I spotted you for a boy when you was threading the needle, and I contrived the other things just to make certain." Some of the most succulent homor is connected with the swindling exploits of the Duke and the King, who "work" the towns along the bank and make considerable money. Their crowning work was in playing the role of the English heirs of old Peter Wilks, a moneyed resident of one of the river towns, who had just died. In the construction of this plot Mark Twain surpasses himself and the amount of really plausible lies which he manages to dovetail together is something extraordinary. A half-dozen times the adventurers are on the eve of exposure, but their fertility and luck save them. Space is lacking to do more than give one extract from this episode, which is a story in itself, descriptive of the Arkansas undertaker at the funeral of old Peter: When the place was packed full the undertaker he slid around in his black gloves with his softy soothering ways, putting on the last touches, and getting people and things all ship-shape and comfortable, and making no more sound than a cat. He never spoke; he moved people around, he squeezed in late ones, he opened up passageways, and done it with nods, and signs with his hands. Then he took his place over against the wall. He was the softest, glidingest, stealthiest man I ever see; and there warn't no more smile to him than there is to a ham. They had borrowed a melodeum -- a sick one; and when everything was ready a young woman set down and worked it, and it was pretty skreeky and colicky, and everybody joined in and sung, and Peter was the only one that had a good thing, according to my notion. Then the Reverend Hobson opened up, slow and solemn, and begun to talk; and straight off the most outrageous row busted out in the cellar a body ever heard; it was only one dog, but he made a most powerful racket, and he kept it up right along; the parson he had to stand there, over the coffin, and wait -- you couldn't hear yourself think. It was right down awkward, and nobody didn't seem to know what to do. But pretty soon they see that long-legged undertaker make a sign to the preacher as much as to say, "Don't you worry -- just depend on me." Then he stooped down and begun to glide along the wall, just his shoulders showing over the people's heads. So he glided along, and the powwow and racket getting more and more outrageous all the time; and at last, when he had gone around two sides of the room, he disappears down cellar. Then in about two seconds we heard a whack, and the dog he finished up with a most amazing howl or two, and then everything was dead still, and the parson begun his solemn talk where he left off. In a minute or two here comes this undertaker's back and shoulders gliding along the wall again; and so he glided and glided around three sides of the room, and then rose up, and shaded his mouth with his hands, and stretched his neck out towards the preacher, over the people's heads, and says, in a kind of a coarse whisper, "He had a rat!" Then he drooped down and glided along the wall again to his place. You could see it was a great satisfaction to the people, because naturally they wanted to know. A little thing like that don't cost nothing, and it's just the little things that makes a man to be looked up to and liked. There warn't no more popular man in town than what that undertaker was. There are dozens of descriptive bits as good as this and others in which there is no attempt at caricature, such, for instance, as the picture of the old one-horse cotton plantation of Phelps, which any one who has seen the South will recognize as a type. What Mark Twain can do in short sketches of persons is shown by the portrait of old Mrs. Hotchkiss, which is one of the best things in the book. Any one who has ever lived in the Southwest, or who has visited that section, will recognize the truth of all these sketches and the art with which they are brought into this story. To all readers we can commend the story as eminently readable. The person who can withstand the abounding humor of this book must be proof against all jokes except of the Joe Miller order. The volume is very well gotten up, the illustrations adding materially to the fun of the story. The New York Herald March 18, 1885 p. 6 "Huckleberry Finn" in Concord The sage censors of the Concord public library have unanimously reached the conclusion that "Huckleberry Finn" is not the sort of reading matter for the knowledge seekers of a town which boasts the only "summer school of philosophy" in the universe. They have accordingly banished it from the shelves of that institution. The reasons which moved them to this action are weighty and to the point. One of the Library Committee, while not prepared to hazard the opinion that the book is "absolutely immoral in its tone," does not hesitate to declare that to him "it seems to contain but very little humor." Another committeeman perused the volume with great care and discovered that it was "couched in the language of a rough, ignorant dialect" and that "all through its pages there is a systematic use of bad grammar and an employment of inelegant expressions." The third member voted the book "flippant" and "trash of the veriest sort." They all united in the verdict that "it deals with a series of experiences that are certainly not elevating," and voted that it could not be tolerated in the public library. The committee very considerately explain the mystery of how this unworthy production happened to find its way into the collection under their charge. "Knowing the author's reputation," and presumably being familiar with the philosophic pages of "The Innocents Abroad," "Roughing It," "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer," "The Jumping Frog," &c., they deemed it "totally unnecessary to make a very careful examination of 'Huckleberry Finn' before sending it to Concord." But the learned librarian, probably seizing upon it on its arrival to peruse it with eager zest, "was not particularly pleased with it." He promptly communicated his feelings to the committee, who at once proceeded to enter upon a critical reading of the suspected volume, with the results that are now laid before the public. Condition:Spine age darkened, touch of rubbing to corners, some wear and age darkening to front issue guard else a very good copy.

        Dessin original de Georges Bigot à l'encre représentant une famille japonaise au bain.

      Au verso, Georges Bigot, calligraphie la légende "Au Japon, Bain de famille, moeurs domestiques. Petite Fleur, frottez un peu le dos de mon mari pendant que je m'occupe du petit". Les regards échangés entre le mari et la servante laissent augurer des développements chers à Nagisa Oshima. Georges Ferdinand Bigot, né le 7 avril 1860 à Paris dans le 5e arrondissement, mort le 10 octobre 1927 à Bièvres, est un peintre, illustrateur et caricaturiste français. Peu connu dans son pays natal, c'est au Japon qu'il passe à la postérité. L'?uvre de Bigot est aujourd'hui un des témoignages les plus précieux pour connaître les m?urs du pays du soleil levant à l'ère Meiji. Les caricatures de Bigot, reprises chaque année dans les livres de classe, sont familières à bien des Japonais. Initié au dessin par sa mère, Bigot se destine à l'art dès son enfance. À douze ans, il est admis à l'école des beaux-arts de Paris où il apprend le dessin dans les ateliers de Jean-Léon Gérôme et de Carolus-Duran. En dehors de l'École, il fait la connaissance de Philippe Burty, collectionneur d'?uvres japonaises, de Louis Gonse, historien de l'art et spécialiste de l'art japonais, et de Félix Buhot qui enseigne l'eau-forte à Bigot. Le japonisme, qui influence les milieux artistiques de Paris à cette époque-là, suscite aussi un fort intérêt à Bigot. Il participe aux illustrations de L'art japonais, ouvrage de Louis Gonse et visite le pavillon du Japon de l'Exposition universelle à Paris en 1878. Enfin, afin d'étudier la peinture traditionnelle japonaise, il prépare son départ pour le Japon. C'est en travaillant comme illustrateur pour les journaux La Vie moderne et Le Monde parisien, tout en participant aux illustrations d'un roman d'Émile Zola, Nana, que Bigot paie son voyage pour le pays du soleil levant. Il embarque en 1881 et arrive l'année suivante à Yokohama. Au Japon, il suit d'abord des cours de langue japonaise et de peinture traditionnelle, tout en enseignant le dessin et l'aquarelle à l'école militaire. Parallèlement à ces activités, il publie quelques albums de gravure comme Croquis japonais (日本素描集?) et illustre des journaux japonais. Après l'expiration de son engagement par l'école militaire, il devient professeur de français dans une école fondé par Chōmin Nakae, écrivain et penseur politique qui a traduit Du Contrat social de Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Il voyage à Nikko, situé au nord de Tokyo, et à Kyushu, île du le Sud du Japon. En 1895, il épouse une japonaise dont il a un enfant. Portant un kimono et parlant le japonais, Bigot s'assimile à la vie japonaise. Lutte entre la Russie, la Chine et le Japon pour la Corée : Une partie de pêche, Tôbaé, no 1, 1887. En 1887, Bigot édite le journal satirique Tôbaé1 dans lequel il ridiculise les hommes politiques et caricature les excès de l'occidentalisation et la modernisation du Japon. Craignant une arrestation, il publie le journal dans une concession étrangère, le gouvernement de Meiji ayant considéré Bigot comme personne suspecte. Cela ne contrarie pas son enthousiasme créatif : Bigot publie un bon nombre d'albums comme La Journée d'une geisha à Tokyo (東京芸者の一日?). Quand la guerre sino-japonaise éclate, il se rend en Corée en tant qu'envoyé spécial de la revue anglaise London Graphic. Mais la disparition des concessions de 1899 décide Bigot à quitter le Japon, où il a séjourné dix-sept ans. Ayant divorcé, Bigot revient en France avec son fils et s'installe à Bièvres. Il s'y éteint en 1927. Une sérié télévisée biopic, coproduction franco-japonaise, réalisée par Olivier Gérard et Yuji Murakami, intitulée Le Kimono rouge (ビゴーを知っていますか, Bigō o shitte imasuka?, « connaissez-vous Bigot ») a été diffusée le 9 octobre 1982 sur les chaines NHK et Antenne 2. On y retrouve Yves Beneyton, Kristian Fredric, Katia Tchenko, Yoko Shimada et Bunta Sugawara Très bon couverture souple Edition originale Signé par l'auteur

        McLear & Kendall, Carriage Manufacturers, Corner of Ninth and Kings Streets, Wilmington, Del. -216, 281, 220 North Broad Street, Philadelphia Pa. -Corner of Meeting and Worth Sts, Charleston, S.C.

      1 sheet. Broadside. 19th century broadside advertising twenty-nine different models of carriages from a "Small business Rockaway" to a elaborate "Five-glass Landau, " all around a central image of the Wilmington factory, the first steam-powered carriage plant built in the United States, in 1864, and capable of turning out over 1500 carriages a year. Originally founded by John Merrick, in 1830, the company was acquired by Henry C. McLear and Casper Kendall at the time of the construction of the new plant, nearly half an acre in size, with showrooms on the first floor and manufacturing facilities on the three above, and employing 150 skilled craftsmen. Prices are noted in pencil next to four models. OCLC locates no copies of this broadside nor any like it, though it does mention, without providing a location, a 23 page brochure with a nearly identical title printed by the same printer. Carriage manufacturing broadsides of this size are extremely uncommon and this may possibly be a unique copy.

        Grover Cleveland Demonstrates a Washingtonian Vision of the Presidency

      When a president's work is done, we "should expect the person we have thus designated to resume his place among his fellow citizens"& When Cleveland took office in 1885, one world was ending and a new one was emerging. The signs were every- where: a complete, national railroad grid was being built, cities were being wired for electrity, and the telephone system was starting to be installed. In the political arena, Cleveland bridged the time between the old and the new - from when Congress dominated na- tional affairs to the modern era when the Executive branch would do so.& Cleveland was elected by pledging to bring integrity to government, and saw two aspects of this in his role as president. One was that of a righteous watchdog making sure other politi- cians stayed honest. The second was to conduct himself personally in such a way as to set an example of integ- rity, making his acts match his words. His White House was a place not of& ostentation, lavish living, arrogance, or self-importance, nor where the well- connected could rely on their interests being served, but one where true public service and disinterested honesty were foremost. He was self-reliant to a re- markable degree, conducting the presidency with one telephone and sometimes answering the door himself. The people loved him for it.& To Cleveland, the essence of presidential integrity was that the president must consider himself just an average citizen selected for a short time to manage the people's affairs. To believe otherwise, to consider that he was an important per- son deserving special treatment (and by extension that his friends and relatives were special people deserving special attention), would be to betray the hopes of the nation, as it would lead to a governing oligarchy consisting of the power- ful and the wealthy. He would have been scandalized by the presidency of the modern era. Here is a succinct statement of his philosophy.& Autograph Letter Signed in the years between his two terms, three pages 8vo, Buzzard's Bay, Mass., June 14, 1891, to Julius Strause, who had apparently been referred to Cleveland by the noted author Hamlin Garland. "Mr. Garland has sent to me your letter of June 3d in which you request of him a letter or other writ- ing of mine. He suggests that I furnish something that will answer your purpose. I can hardly imagine that my efforts in this direction will be of any great value to you and yet I am certainly willing to accede to your request. I suppose your desire arises from the fact that I have occupied the office of President. It is a great and profoundly& Page 51& Page 52& responsible office. But it seems to me that, as Americans, we ought to regard it merely as a designation of one of our number to do for us certain work under our government by the people; and that when this work is done should expect the person we have thus designated, to resume his place among his fellow citizens- no wiser and not particularly better than the rest of our people, by reason of his having occupied the position to which they called him."& This is by far the finest statement on the presidency by a president that we have ever seen, or, in fact, that could be ever made.

        Three Documents

      Washington, 1885. unbound. Rare assemblage of three documents pertaining to the founding, completion, and dedication of the Washington Monument. First: the original ornate August 1, 1850 subscription mailing letter titled "The Officers and Board of Managers of the Washington National Monument Society." 1 page measuring 8 1/4" x 10 1/2", with 19 facsimile signatures of the officers including Millard Fillmore as ex-officio President and Winfield Scott and Peter Force as Managers. A vignette of the original design of the Washington Monument is at the upper left. The next item is an outstanding example of the U.S. Government invitation to attend the Ceremonies on the Completion of the Washington Monument; heavy stock with no folding creases. Measures 6 1/2" x 10 1/2". In full: "The Capital, Washington, D.C. The Commission appointed under the joint resolution of Congress approved May 13th 1884, in relation to ceremonies to be authorized...at the dedication of the Washington Monument...requests the pleasure of your attendance at these ceremonies to be held in the City of Washington, D.C. on February 21st 1885." Signed by John Sherman, Chairman of the Commission. Decorated with an excellent steel engraving of Gilbert Stuarts depiction of George Washington; with flags, rays of light and images of liberty surrounding the monument. The invitation is addressed in holograph to Madison Davis -- Post Office Dept. -- an African-American Postmaster appointed in Athens, Georgia on February 13, 1882.The last item is the very elusive ticket to attend the Dedication of the Washington Monument, February 21st 1885, on the Floor of the House of Representatives: "Admit bearer to the East Door leading to the Rotunda." Signed by John Sherman (in facsimile) as Chairman. This rare example has one tiny chip at the lower border and some minor foxing through the word "Dedication" -- otherwise it is in fine condition. Three years after the dedication, when the Washington Monument finally opened to the public (October 9, 1888) it was hailed as the "Worlds Tallest Structure.
