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 6 (or 5) of the 7 issue points needed for a bona fide first copy. The discrepancy of 5 or 6 depends upon how you define the corrected page number "155" with the second "5" stamped in.

PRICED to sell!Issue Points: I'm reasonably confident this is close to a first state copy with about 6 (or 5) of the 7 first state issue points present described as follows (see also pics): portrait bust without cloth visible (this is the only truly second state issue point, apparently cloth is visible on first state copies) with "Heliotype Printing Co." on lower left-hand corner; Contents, Chapter VI.

L'histoire raconte le retour d'un déporté à Nouméa suite à la Commune, qui apprend que sa femme, le croyant mort, s'est remariée avec le boucher Sagnard.L'histoire a retenu, jusqu'à présent, que Léon Hennique était l'unique auteur de l'adaptation théâtrale, refusée à l'Odéon par Porel, et qui fut jouée au Théâtre Libre d'Antoine, lors de la première soirée de celui-ci le 30 mars 1887. La pièce fut un succès, probablement accentué par les trois autres pièces de la soirée reçues plus froidement. Finalement, la pièce fut montée à l'Odéon pour la saison 1887 et y fut jouée à partir du 22 septembre 1887. Elle est jouée à Bruxelles, interdite à Constantinople (officiellement car parlant de la Commune mais probablement à cause de Zola. Elle a été éditée chez Charpentier dès 1887. On sait qu'à l'époque des soirées de Médan, il y a eu des tentatives de collaboration théâtrale entre Zola et Hennique. Aucune n'a abouti ni à cette époque. La découverte de ce manuscrit prouve qu'une collaboration, plus tardive, a donc abouti. C'est donc la première collaboration théâtrale aboutie connue.Le manuscrit est une remise au propre par Léon Hennique, sans rature.

"... Vor wenigen Tagen erst bin ich von Italien zurückgekommen, und habe kaum alle Briefe und Schriften durchgesehen, die mich erwarteten, da Klinik und Praxis und schönes Praterwetter und italiänische Oper mich vollauf in Anspruch nahmen. Don Fernando hat ein unoperierbares Carcinom des linken Oberkiefers. Der Name 'Krebs' soll auf Wunsch des Königs 'Don Luis'" ("Dom Luis I", regierender König und Sohn des Kranken, 1838-1889) "nicht genannt werden. Ich habe die Krankheit 'Ostite chronique' getauft und langsame Heilung dem Patienten gegenüber in Aussicht gestellt. Der Allgemeinzustand und Humor ist noch gut. Wenn nicht Accidentien hinzutreten (Blutungen, rasche Verjauchung) kann der König wohl noch ein Jahr leben ..." Ferdinand II. aus dem Hause Sachsen-Coburg-Koháry, als Gemahl Marias II. iure uxoris König von Portugal, starb am 15. Dezember des Jahres.

View items for sale Forty-nine hardback volumes of annual USGS reports from the last decade and a half of the 19th century. The books are in various degrees of wear.

(Boys' Clubs of America; David H. Armstrong) Hoover, Herbert;
David H. Armstrong (1885-1963) was national director of the Boys' Clubs of America from 1941-56. Hebert Hoover was for part of that time Chairman of the Board of the Boys' Clubs. Armstrong addressed him as "Chief" in letters to him. Hoover's 'On Growing Up' (1962) is inscribed fondly to Armstrong, very good in jacket. Hoover and Gibson, 'The Problems of Lasting Peace' (1st, 1942) is nicely inscribed to Armstrong, very good in jacket; Hall's '100 Years...' is NOT signed, but the printed dedication is to Armstrong and it came from his collection. The notes back and forth from Armstrong and Hoover are short, the most interesting being a note from Armstrong in which he tells Hoover that a Mrs. Ehrenfels is leaving a block of Standard Oil stock to the Boys' Clubs in her will, asking Hoover to send a note of appreciation to her. Hoover responds in pencil, 'I don't think I can write an obituary note to a lady that has not yet passed away. Ask Mr. Hall to pass along our joint gratification.' Marshall (a fine general, Uniontown native, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953 for his Marshall Plan) sends along a three sentence statement of appreciation for the Boys' Clubs, signed. Truman's typed letter from 1948 is also a general message of praise for the Boys' Clubs and their mission: 'The moral fiber of any Nation grows out of the attitudes and behavior patterns of its youth,' he writes in part. The Edgar A. Guest poem, which appears to be an original draft, is his typical cheery doggerel. Very Good. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

USGS
Washington, D.C: United States Geological Survey, 1885. See item description. View items for sale Forty-nine hardback volumes of annual USGS reports from the last decade and a half of the 19th century. The books are in various degrees of wear. All are usable as "work copies" and many are ex-library. Only a few maps are missing and almost all are present present. The text blocks appear to be complete and mostly clean, although there is some rare and sporadic handwriting, usually in pencil. The boards usually are loose, but adequately attached, except in the two instances noted below. Most exteriors are well-worn, scuffed, and frayed, but the pages themselves are in fairly good shape. I've listed each of the 49 volumes below, including the "accompanying papers" that comprise each volume. Many volumes also contain a "Report of the Director" and several "administrative reports" in addition to these "accompanying papers." Most papers are illustrated and have drawings and/or plates.

Edwin Abbott Abbott
Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1885. Good - please see description. FLATLAND "A Romance of Many Dimensions" by A Square From 1885, the first American edition (and first publication in hardcover) of Edwin A. Abbott's speculative fiction classic, a narrative of life in a two-dimensional world. This copy is INSCRIBED by the author on the first page. The few copies Abbott is known to have signed were always inscribed with the same words: "Compliments of a -- ", followed by either a square, a circle or a triangle. This copy has been graced with a tall triangle. First editions are scarce, signed firsts like this almost unheard of. I have not been able to locate another signed copy for sale or in an auction in the past decade. The book's covers have condition issues, as seen in the photos, a stain on the front and a missing piece torn from the back. The binding is sound; there is the impress stamp of an unwise former owner on the title page; the text is toned with age as expected, otherwise very nice. A small volume, 4.75" X 6.75", 155 pages. Ships promptly & securely. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Huckleberry Finn (1885) Mark Twain FIRST EDITION With the earliest first state issue points FIRST STATE POINTS 1) Frontispiece bust with tablecloth visible and imprint of Heliotype Printing Co.; 2) p. [ix], Ch. VI reads "Huck Decided to Leave"; 2) p. 13 shows uncorrected "Him and another man" listed at p. 88 (when it actually appears on 87); 3) p. 57, line 23 reads "with the was." 4) p. 143, line 1, no "l" in "Col." and line 7, broken "b"; 5) p. 155 has 2nd "5" missing, so as to read page "15" (later copies have the second 5 there, but lower than the first 5); 6) p. 283/284 is tipped in on a stub, which means it was one of the original copies that the publisher ordered the removal of page 283, and had a replacement page 283 tipped in there. Someone who worked for the publisher defaced the illustration on page 283 to be pornographic, and this was one of the copies that had to have page 283 removed and a replacement tipped in. CONDITION REPORT: This copy has been re-backed with a new spine, retaining the original covers (corners and edges are very worn). The inner hinges are lined with linen tape, some of the pages are repaired (a few pages at beginning of book have new pages supplied with the original page laid down, with no loss of text, and several pages throughout the book have areas of mending with archival tape). Staining to pages. There are two front end papers and both are covered with pencil notes. There is one rear end paper and it also has Turner's autograph in pencil. The text block is very sound.

With one hundred and seventy-four illustrations. The book is in good condition. Significant wear to the boards, edges, and corners. Large tear to the cloth of the spine towards the middle of the front board. Two smaller tears at the spine near the middle of the rear board. Previous owner's label on the front pastedown. Tissue guard missing from frontispiece. Hinge cracked at the title page, exposing the mull underneath. Page 128 has a two inch tear from the bottom of the page near the gutter. The textblock is moderately soiled throughout. First edition, first printing of perhaps the most bibliographically complex book ever produced. There are three universally-agreed upon issue points that discern a first edition copy of Huckleberry Finn from a later printing. The heading for Chapter VI (6) on the first contents page (pg. 9) reads "Huck Decided to Leave". In later printings, this was changed to "Huck Decides to Leave". On page 13, the Illustrations list, "Him and another Man" is incorrectly listed at page 88 instead of page 87. On page 57, eleven lines from the bottom, it reads "with the was" which was corrected in later printings to "with the saw". This copy has all three of these first edition points present. There are many other issue points listed in the Bibliography of American Literature (BAL), but there has not been agreement on the priority of these states.

New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade) Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) New York: Charles L. Webster and Company, 1885 First edition, first issue Condition: Good This is a first edition, first issue of one of the most celebrated works of American literature. This copy of the notoriously bibliographically complex novel contains the three generally agreed-upon first issue indicators - the Contents Chapter VI heading reading "Decided", the illustration "Him and another Man" incorrectly listed at page 88 on page 13, and "with the was" on page 57. The frontispiece is a second issue with the Heliotype Printing Company imprint and no tablecloth visible, but "it must be emphasized that the portrait frontispiece is an insert and as such has no relation to the sheets of the book." (Bibliography of American Literature) This is a good example overall, complete and presentable, but certainly showing age, wear, and judicious preservation. This volume retains the publisher's famously illustrated green cloth binding, which has been repaired. This volume has been rebacked with the original spine cloth skillfully laid over new, matching cloth beneath, as well as new endpapers. The moderately frayed and worn corners of the boards likewise show unobtrusive repair, exposed portions being dyed to match the green of the original cloth. The contents are clean and free of spotting, but likewise have some flaws. The brittle, coated paper of the frontispiece (which was a non-integral publisher's insert) has split at the gutter, leavi … [Click Below for Full Description]
