ANARCHISM] TOLSTOÏ, Count Léon (text); POPOFF,
William S. Gottsberger, 1886. First American Edition. Autobiographical work on the author's spiritual evolution, penned shortly after Tolstoy turned to Christian pacifism in his late-middle age. Tolstoy was raised in the Greek Orthodox Church, though by his teenage years was no longer practicing his childhood faith. By late middle age the prospect of reaching literary and intellectual perfection no longer appealed to Tolstoy, who instead turned towards spiritual introspection. Beginning in the early 1880's Tolstoy became increasingly obsessed with the idea of Christian non-resistance, while immersing himself in the works of New England pacifists Adin Ballou and William Lloyd Garrison, whose ideas helped bolster his own pacifist princples. His personal theology drew heavily from the Gospels, rejecting the sovereignty of the Church and the divinity of Jesus Christ while embracing the spirit of his teachings; "the entire foundation of the Tolstoyan faith is in the Sermon on the Mount. Six commandments: "Thou shalt not be angry, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not swear, thou shalt not resist evil by evil, thou shalt have no enemies, thou shalt love God and they neighbor as thyself." With prodigious naïveté Tolstoy observes, "Strange as it may seem, it was necessary for me to discover these rules after eighteen centuries, as though for the first time" (Troyat, Henri. Tolstoy, p.397). He charted his new faith in works like My Confession (1879), Criticism of Dogmatic Theology(1880), and his Union and Translation of the Four Gospels (1882), though he would not outline h … [Click Below for Full Description]

The daughter of British gentry and one of England's most influential Catholic families, Isabel Arundell Burton was educated and intelligent in her own rite. But her marriage to explorer Sir Richard Burton brought a new level of adventure to her life. Before their courtship even began, "Burton had become the first infidel to infiltrate Mecca as one of the faithful, and in an expedition to discover the source of the Nile, would be the first white man to see Lake Tanganyika. After being married, the Burtons traveled and experienced the world, from diplomatic postings in Brazil and Africa to hair raising adventures in the Syrian desert" (Lovell). It was during the couple's time in Brazil that Isabel learned of two indigenous writers, whose works were not available in English. The desire to s … [Click Below for Full Description]

McCann, James (1837-1893)
The letters date from 1886-1893, and are divided fairly evenly between letters from James McCann to his wife Martha and her letters to him. Most letters are 4 or more pages, one is upwards of 15pp. Most have their envelopes. In addition, there is one letter each from Thomas Spencer Wells, William Stewart Halsted, John Milton Duff, James B. Murdoch, and a number of letters from McCann's daughter Alice to her mother, plus some old family photos and other related correspondence. James McCann (1837-1893) was 19th Century Pittsburgh's most important medical figure. A nationally respected surgeon, he was the chief founder of the Western Pennsylvania Medical College in 1886, which became the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, and was Chair of Principles and Practices of Surgery until his death in 1893. He had nine children with his first wife, Sarah, who died in 1883, and one child with his second wife, Martha, whom he married in 1888. This archive begins in 1886 with a flirtatious reply to a note from Martha, and ends in 1893 with a long and heartfelt letter from his best friend and fellow surgeon, J. B. Murdoch. His 1893 death at the age of 56 was due to a septic infection he contracted years before while performing surgery, and throughout these letters his health is a constant theme, even appearing in his first letter to Martha. Another theme is the balancing of his life as a surgeon and the politics of the first years of the medical school, with his personal life. In the first years of courting Martha (1886 to early 1888), he often wrote apologetically that he had to ca … [Click Below for Full Description]

HARDY, Thomas.
London: Smith, Elder & Co.,, 1886. Original cloth 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, decorative bands and floral decorations on front covers and spines in black, grey floral endpapers. Single advertisement leaf at end of vol. I, 2 leaves in vol. II, as called for. Washed out inscription dated 1888 to half-titles. Light rubbing and a couple of patches of soiling to cloth, very light wear at extremities, light foxing, loss to paper in gutter and margins throughout vol. I and sporadically in vol. II, sig. G of vol. I and C of vol. II loosening, burn-hole with slight loss to lettering to vol. I pp. 179/180. A good, unsophisticated copy in the original cloth. First edition in book form, and the first complete publication of the text, with the novel originally published in a bowdlerized text in both the Graphic and Harper's Weekly from 2 January to 15 May 1886. The print run when published in the present book-form on 10 May 1886 was 758 copies, of which only 650 were bound, and it is consequently a scarce item, especially so in the original cloth. The novel is widely esteemed as one of Hardy's masterpieces. The main character Henchard, according to the critic Albert Guerard, "stands at the very summit of his creator's achievement; his only tragic hero and one of the greatest tragic heroes in all fiction. He takes his place at once with certain towering and possessed figures of Melville, Hawthorne, and Dostoevsky" (Thomas Hardy: The Novels and Stories, New York: 1949).

HARDY, Thomas.
London: Smith, Elder & Co.,, 1886. Rare presentation copy 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue cloth, decorative bands and floral decorations on front covers and spines in black, titles to spines gilt, grey floral endpapers. Housed in a dark blue flat-back cloth box by the Chelsea Bindery. Early ownership inscriptions of J. D. Hunter to head of half-title of vol. II. Vol I. in bright cloth, vol. II darkened, extremities worn in places, a few areas of surface wear or pale blemishes to sides, hinges of vol. II skilfully repaired. A good set. First edition in book form, presentation copy of volume I, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To the Hon. Mrs Jeune, from Thomas Hardy". Presentation copies are highly uncommon, with just two copies traced at auction. The recipient, Mary Jeune, later Baroness St Helier (1848-1931), was a prolific essayist (publishing around 50 periodical essays), vigorous philanthropist on behalf of women and poor children, and a notable London hostess, renowned for her sparkling intellect and with "an insatiable appetite for society". Hardy called her "Mrs Jeune the irrepressible", and, when visiting London, stayed at her and her husband's house so frequently that he became known as their "dosser" (Ferguson, p. 7). St Helier wrote a spirited defence of Hardy in a letter to the Daily Chronicle in May 1894, responding to a suggestion that his recently published collection, Life's Little Ironies, ought to be suppressed on the ground of sexual frankness. As well as Hardy, her guests included luminaries such as Matthew Arnold, Robert Brownin … [Click Below for Full Description]

A. Onofri [Achille Onofri]
[Moyamensing Prison, Philadelphia, 1886]. Watercolor on paper, mounted to cardboard backing. Painting: 7¾ x 10 inches; overall, 8 x 10 inches. Signed by artist at lower right, "A. Onofri." Contemporary manuscript provenance and notes on verso of backer. Touch of faint, possible water-staining to the artist's name at the bottom right corner (it is still completely legible). In very good condition. Italian-American Achille Onofri, was an acrobat and contortionist who had met trapeze artist Millie Cook in Havana, married her, and then moved to Philadelphia with her and her 9-year-old daughter, Lottie. On May 11, 1886, Onofri was teaching Lottie to walk the tightrope, but she was unable to do it. Apparently, in a fit of anger, he beat her viciously, and she died within a few hours. After his trial and conviction for second degree murder, Onofri was sentenced to twelve years in Pennsylvania's infamous Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia. (e.g., see the May 30, 1885 issue of The New York Times for additional details of Onofri's crime.) According to contemporary notes on the verso, he executed this painting in Philadelphia's Moyamensing Prison, likely during pre-sentencing. Onofri's painting is a pastoral, idealized scene of individuals, possibly African-American slaves or sharecroppers, seen in front of a row of wooden cabin-like houses or quarters. Men and women converse at leisure in the foreground. In the background, individuals are seen working.¹ Handwritten notes on the verso provide provenance and other details (in full): "Painted by Achille Onofri, At Moyamensing … [Click Below for Full Description]

GANDON. (Édouard Honoré)
1886. Assinado: E. H. Gandon. Dimensões: Tela: 43x35,5 cm; Moldura: 67x59,5 cm; Peso: 4,470 Kg. Na parte posterior da moldura encontra-se uma autenticação pela filha do autor: «EHGANDON autenticado por sua filha H[ugette] Gandon». Moldura em madeira muito antiga (provavelmente do século XIX, grande e adaptada à tela) com uma decoração em gesso feita à mão. Algumas das bonitas rosetas estão partidas mas podem ser facilmente restauradas. Óleo sobre tela representando uma jarra em porcelana com flores com a forma de um amendoim e com dez crisântemos em cores muito vivas. Pintura muito bela e única que, apesar de moderna, é inspirada na escolar francesa de Paul Gaugin ou Pierre Auguste Renoir. De acordo com algumas fontes Gandon era já considerado um excelente pintor antes de vir para Portugal. Em Portugal pinta diversos óleos como «Varinas e paisagem»; «Vistas de ruas e paisagens»; «Vista de Sintra»; entre outros. Édouard Honoré Gandon (1886-1962) era um pintor francês que fez grande parte do seu trabalho em Portugal. Foi mobilizado durante a Primeira Guerra Mundial e em 1940 muda-se para Portugal quando a sua filha casa com um industrial e mecenas. Em Lisboa vive com a sua família, uma das mais ricas da cidade. Tornar a sua arte conhecida não era uma prioridade e ele sabia que não se enquadrava nos artistas vanguardistas. Muitas das suas telas estavam nas paredes das suas casas, como belos objectos de decoração.A maior parte dos trabalhos que lhe são atribuídos aparecem em leilões sem assinatura e poderão ser falsificações.

Tipped in to front pastedown is a sheet inscribed "Professor C.V. Riley with kind regards of O.C. Marsh." Marsh (1831-1899) was the first person to be appointed as Professor of Paleontology in the United States and an early supporter of Darwin's theory of evolution. He helped to identify and describe eighty new forms of dinosaurs and thirty-four new genera. His "most enduring legacy is the collections he acquired for the U.S. Geological Survey during his ten years as the government's first vertebrate paleontologist. The annual appropriation for this position enabled him to employ field collectors, laboratory preparation staff, artists, and other assistants at the Peabody Museum at Yale, resulting in a collection of great quantity and quality. Marsh insisted on having skeletons as complete as possible and became an expert in the art of constructing lifelike restorations of extinct dinosaurs, birds, and mammals" (ANB). This book was the second of a series of monographs "designed to make known to science the extinct vertebrate life of North America."

London: 1886. Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson First edition, first issue of the classic novel London: Longmans, Green and Company, 1886. [viii], 141, [1, blank] pp. Bound in three-quarter calf and cloth, ruled and lettered in gilt. Original wrappers with ads on versos bound in. First edition, first issue with correction to front wrap. Very Good+ with creasing and evidence of repair along gutters. Front and back wraps slightly scuffed and a little spiked. Contents generally bright and clean. A nice example of the classic novel of man's duality. This U.K. edition was slated for release in December of 1885, but was delayed until January 9th, 1886 as the publisher didn't want it to get lost in the Christmas shuffle. Thus the correction to the date which only is shown on first printings. This is a frightening tale, not necessarily because of Mr. Hyde's visible beastliness - but because Stevenson reminds us that the most frightening elements of existence reside within!
