Stevenson, Robert Louis
Longmans, Green & Co, London, 1886. First English edition of Stevenson's classic book. Octavo, original cloth, olive green floral endpapers. In near fine condition. Armorial bookplate to the pastedown. "If [Bram Stoker's] Dracula leaves one with the sensation of having been struck down by a massive, 400-page wall of horror, then Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is like the sudden, mortal jab of an ice pick" (Stephen King). Leaping to life out of a "fine bogey dream" from which the author's wife abruptly awakened him, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde proved "immediately and lastingly Stevenson's most famous story" (Baugh et al., 1499). "Published as a 'shilling shocker,' a form at that time in fashion, it became instantly popular; was quoted from a thousand pulpits; was translated into German, French and Danish; and the names of its two chief characters have passed into the common stock of proverbial allusion" (DNB). "It is a Faustian moral fable which takes the form of a tale of mystery and horror. [It] is the prototype of all stories of multiple personality, transformation and possession. The psychological power of the writing, including Jekyll's agonies, is patent" (Clute & Nicholls, 1165). "When we thrill to the shock and horror of the story, I think it is because we all, at least to some degree, have been torn by [Jekyll's] internal conflict. When we recoil in terror from the selfish savagery of Mr. Hyde, I think it is because we fear our own secret selves" (Jack Williamson). It is the basis for many adaptations to the screen, most notably in 1931 starring Fredric March and in 1941 featuring … [Click Below for Full Description]

George Bernard Shaw 1st / 1st 1886
1886. Book Title: Cashel Byron's Profession Author: George Bernard Shaw Edition: 1st Publisher: Year: 1886 Details: First UK separate edition published by the Modern Press in 1886. A very good ++ copy. The wrappers and spine are soiled in places with minor foxing to the upper wrapper. Pages are browned as is common. The front free end paper is bound at the back as called for. It is a very pleasing unrestored copy and is protected in a cloth chemise and gilt printed blue cloth slipcase. An early novel from the author, it was originally printed in several issues of 'to-day' magazine. This is the smaller variant issue. The novel follows Cashel Byron, a world champion prizefighter, as he tries to woo wealthy aristocrat Lydia Carew without revealing his illegal profession. Lydia is portrayed as a moral and intelligent woman and is constantly contrasted with the "ruffian" Cashel. Lydia was advised by her recently deceased father to find a husband with a profession, as opposed to an idle gentleman or an art critic like her father. Cashel's childhood ends when he runs away from school to Australia and becomes apprentice to an ex-world champion boxer. When Cashel goes to England to secure his world title in that country he meets Lydia at her country manor. After much miscommunication and drawing room comedy, Cashel gives up boxing and succeeds in marrying Lydia. According to "Note on Modern Prizefighting" (1901) Shaw intended the fights described in Cashel Byron's Profession to turn the public away from the sport but the novel is written in such a light-hearted tone this unlikely re … [Click Below for Full Description]

PINKERTON, Percy E.
Venice: Ongania & London: Swann Sonnenschein (1886). Venice: Ongania & London: Swann Sonnenschein (1886). The quite uncommon first collection of verse by the English expatriate who lived in Italy for many years. This publication, his first original work, was highly praised by John Addington Symonds: 'In one way or another Venice forms its theme throughout. It is dedicated to Venice. The author's deep love for the Bride of the Sea, and his long familiarity with all phases of her beauty, are evinced, not in rhapsodies or passages of declamation, but in the the lingering perfume of his studied rhythms, in the unerring rightness of his descriptive touches.' Very good in parchment wrappers, engraved frontispiece of the Venice lagoons, bound in fabric boards, marbled endpapers, Light cover wear and browning at edges. Uncommon. [Attributes: First Edition]

Stevenson, Robert Louis
[London]: Cassell & Company, Limited, 1886. Very good plus.. First edition, first issue of Stevenson's greatest adventure story, featuring "the most perfect character in English literature" (Henry James). The story of staid lowlander David Balfour, and noble, hotheaded Alan Breck, thrown together by circumstance and tied together thereafter by the bonds of loyal friendship. Henry James, a good and perceptive reader of Stevenson, famously called Alan Breck "the most perfect character in English literature," which is simply the truth. Kidnapped is also among the very finest novels in the English language, for children or for anyone else, but James went only so far as to call it "the finest of [Stevenson's] longer stories." Probably he was jealous.An excellent copy of an excellent book.

Burton, Richard and Isabel, trans. [J. de Alencar; J. M. Pereira da Silva]
London: Bickers & Son, 1886. First English language edition. Near Fine. Finely bound by Boundey, Root & Son in half morocco over marbled boards. Top edge brightly gilt. Marbled endpapers. Internally a pleasing copy, unmarked but for a previous ownership stamp from the Catholic University of America Library to the lower first title. Collates vii, [1, blank], 101, [1, blank]; vii,138: complete but for the original paper wrappers. A pleasing copy of an important work, Isabel Burton's first translation into English of J. de Alencar, the father of modern Brazilian literature. 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 spread these stories -- and their authors' names -- motivated the translation, as, likely, did Burton's encouragement of his wife to take on literary projects. According the preface of Iracema, the book which bears Isabe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stevenson, Robert Louis
London: Longmans, Green, and Co, 1886. First edition. Very good.. First issue of the Gothic thriller, in the scarce original wrappers. Following in the tradition of Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN, this novella explores the philosophical consequences of scientific pursuit unrestrained by conscience. Originally priced at one shilling, it is bargain horror at its best, a penny dreadful that is "dam dreadful, " as Stevenson wrote in a letter during its composition. The work's popularity is based in part on its masterly balance of cheap thriller and conte philosophique - an equation that continues to influence creators: in an interview with Web of Stories, Stan Lee credited a combination of FRANKENSTEIN and JEKYLL AND HYDE as the inspiration behind the Incredible Hulk.

Whitney Family]: Henry B. Whitney; Martha S. Whitney, [et al]
[Pulaski, N.Y., Hampton Roads, Va., Fort Jefferson, Fl., Carrollton, La., Baton Rouge, La., and elsewhere, as mentioned below], 1886. 263 manuscript letters, many with envelopes. Many of the postal cancels and stamps have been cut from the envelopes. Occasional light toning or staining, some fading, and some letters with dampstains or paperclip rust stains. Overall in near fine condition. A substantial archive of 263 letters from the extended family of Henry B. Whitney, who served with the 110th New York Volunteers during the Civil War. Henry Whitney's letters detail his service over the period 1862 to 1865, and include much on his experiences in Louisiana (including observations on slavery), and during the siege of Port Hudson, a crucial battle in securing Union control of the Mississippi River. Several of Whitney's letters are also from Fort Jefferson, Florida, and he describes the construction of the fort - using the labor of white and black prisoners. The many letters to Henry Whitney from the home front - including letters from his wife, one of which relates the death of their young son - results in a balanced story of Civil War sacrifice in the field and at home. The archive includes forty-seven letters dating from 1861 to early 1862, before Whitney joined the war effort; fifty-eight war-dated letters written by Henry, mostly to his wife, along with his August 6, 1862 enlistment certificate in the 110th New York Infantry; and eighty-two letters (including poems and meditations clipped from newspapers and serials, and even fabric samples) from Henry's wife Martha ("Mat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Burton, Richard and Isabel, trans. [J. de Alencar; J. M. Pereira da Silva]
London: Bickers & Son, 1886. First English language edition. Finely bound by Boundey, Root & Son in half morocco over marbled boards. Top edge brightly gilt. Marbled endpapers. Internally a pleasing copy, unmarked but for a previous ownership stamp from the Catholic University of America Library to the lower first title. Collates vii, [1, blank], 101, [1, blank]; vii,138: complete but for the original paper wrappers. A pleasing copy of an important work, Isabel Burton's first translation into English of J. de Alencar, the father of modern Brazilian literature. 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 spread these stories -- and their authors' names -- motivated the translation, as, likely, did Burton's encouragement of his wife to take on literary projects. According the preface of Iracema, the book which bears Isabel's name alone a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sampson, George G.
1886?1912, Maine, Worcester, New York City. George Sampson was an ordinary New England farm boy by birth, whose diaries here reflect his personal experience of two decades-plus of sometimes sweeping change in ordinary American life as well as his own transformation from a rural schoolboy into a professional man whose life is urban. As his 26 years of record-keeping begin in 1886, George is in Franklin County, ME, with extended family all around and many named neighbors; the diaries for many years show us a large, hardworking household whose members, all of them, commit themselves day after day (and year after year) to the unending, relentless, and remarkably various array of chores required by the propagation, planting, cultivation, reaping, and sale of market crops along with what seems to be extensive mixed animal husbandry ? not to mention what was required simply to maintain and improve an array of farm properties including home gardens, orchards, woodlots, hayfields, and an additional acreage nearby used primarily for large-animal care. => The meticulously recorded, sometimes "how-to" detail on these activities can be surprisingly exhausting even to read, even as it is fascinating, informative, and impressive. Yet when George is young he also records => plentiful times of fun and play; and as he gets older he records enjoyment of a full array of social, community, and church occasions ? including, once, a circus, and eventually incorporating concerts, picnics, "sociables," an occasional lecture, and attendance at a great many "lodge meetings." By 1893, our diarist has … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Whitney Family]: Henry B. Whitney; Martha S. Whitney, [et al]
[Pulaski, N.Y., Hampton Roads, Va., Fort Jefferson, Fl., Carrollton, La., Baton Rouge, La., and elsewhere, as mentioned below], 1886. 263 manuscript letters, many with envelopes. Many of the postal cancels and stamps have been cut from the envelopes. Occasional light toning or staining, some fading, and some letters with dampstains or paperclip rust stains. Overall in near fine condition. A substantial archive of 263 letters from the extended family of Henry B. Whitney, who served with the 110th New York Volunteers during the Civil War. Henry Whitney's letters detail his service over the period 1862 to 1865, and include much on his experiences in Louisiana (including observations on slavery), and during the siege of Port Hudson, a crucial battle in securing Union control of the Mississippi River. Several of Whitney's letters are also from Fort Jefferson, Florida, and he describes the construction of the fort - using the labor of white and black prisoners. The many letters to Henry Whitney from the home front - including letters from his wife, one of which relates the death of their young son - results in a balanced story of Civil War sacrifice in the field and at home. The archive includes forty-seven letters dating from 1861 to early 1862, before Whitney joined the war effort; fifty-eight war-dated letters written by Henry, mostly to his wife, along with his August 6, 1862 enlistment certificate in the 110th New York Infantry; and eighty-two letters (including poems and meditations clipped from newspapers and serials, and even fabric samples) from Henry's wife Martha ( … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hi, This lot is an Original 1886 Wisden Paperback. In Good to Very Good Condition. This book is interesting, first off it has a pencil 1885 to the spine which I guess can be erased , the covers are pretty mark free to front and back, they are tall and clean. To the bottom left of the front cover is a knock. The title page has a small loss and is attached to the inside cover closer than normal , I wasnt sure why until I spotted a line of tape on the hinge of the next page , some pensil to the top of the contents page. The same at the rear of the book , small loss to the last advert which is close to the cover but no sign of tape at the back. Not sure why tape was added as it is tightly bound and the spine shows full paper coverage. The pages inside are nice and clean and hardly a spot.
