        There is No Natural Religion.

      8vo. London: Pickering & Co., 1886. 8vo, 12 leaves with illustrations printed lithographically in reddish-brown highlighted in black (3 colored), original printed blue wrappers. In a later full brown morocco binding, lettered in gilt, lower cover rehinged. Large-paper copy, privately printed for Pickering in an edition of 50 copies. One of the rarest Blake facsimiles, and, only in the large-paper edition, very well executed (the rest were not colored and were printed in a dark brown without highlights). Not in Bentley but see Blake Books Supplement, page 140. Essick notes: "According to BBS page 140, the plates reproduced are the same as those in the Muir facsimile of 1886, apparently from copies A, L, and perhaps H. However, Joseph Viscomi, Blake and the Idea of the Book, pp. 205, 212-13, demonstrates that most of the plates (a1, a2, a4, a8, a9, b3, b4, b12) in this Pickering facsimile were based on copy I, one of the early "bogus" or facsimile copies now in the Morgan Library. The remaining plates (a2, a5, a6, a7) were probably based on copy D (Harvard) or copy G (Morgan), according to Viscomi."

        The playing rules of lawn tennis as adopted by the United States National Lawn Tennis Association

      New York: Peck & Snyder, 1886. 22; [42] pp. Illustrated with diagrams and wood engravings. 1 vols. 16mo. Original beige printed wrappers. Small inkspot on upper cover, small chips from spine, otherwise an excellent copy of a rare, fragile, and important work. 22; [42] pp. Illustrated with diagrams and wood engravings. 1 vols. 16mo. The Origins of Modern Tennis and the USLTA. A fascinating glimpse into the early days of a a sport just getting organized in the United States, The United States National Lawn Tennis Association was founded in 1881 at the Fifth Avenue Hotel in New York City, by a group of young players who wished to standardize the rules of the game and promote the sport (later, in 1920, "National" was dropped and the organization became simply the USLTA). The Rules they adopted eventually became a standard reference for aficionados of the fledgling sport. All early editions of the Rules of the game are quite rare, including this 1886 printing, and they can be divided into two groups of titles: those using "Official Rules" and those using "Playing Rules". According to Phelps & Sabine, editions of the THE OFFICIAL LAWN TENNIS RULES, AS ADOPTED etc., appeared in 1881 (Philadelphia, Lippincott) and 1882 (Boston, Wright & Dixon); but no copies of either of these editions is to be found in OCLC, which lists, however editions of 1885 and 1889 under that title. Also following Phelps & Sabine, THE PLAYING RULES AS ADOPTED, etc., was first published in New York in 1884 by Peck & Snyder. OCLC finds only one copy of that edition (Brown University); Phelps & Sabine also refer to editions of 1886 (this) and 1889 -- however, no copy of the 1886 edition is described. OCLC locates 3 copies: at St. Johns, Yale, and NY Public. The Racquet and Tennis CLub Library also holds a copy. The first section contains "The Laws of Lawn Tennis" and "The Constitution and By-Laws" of the fledgling Association, with a section on "Cases and Decisions" by James Wright; the second section contains the "Rules of Umpires", a discussion of various rackets and balls (Peck & Snyder, manufacturers), and illustrated ads for footwear, lawn markers, nets, tennis paraphernalia, etc. Finally, there is a list of over 40 Clubs belonging to the Association, including the "Cheynenne Lawn Tennis Club" in Wyoming, with 50 members. Copies of any of these USLTA incunabula are quite rare, and when found, quite fragile.

Arabic and Persian text. Izz al-Din Aydamir al-Jaldaki was a Persian alchemist from Khorasan, he fled his native country due to the Mongol invasion. He was one of the last and one of the greatest of medieval Islamic alchemists. In his writings he reveals that he spent seventeen years traveling through Iraq, Anatolia, Yemen, North Africa, and Syria, finally settling in Egypt where he composed many of his treatises. He was a prolific author of alchemical writings. His treatises, which reflect interests much broader than simply alchemy, preserve extensive quotations from earlier authors. He died in Cairo in 1342.

        There Is No Natural Religion. By Wm. Blake. Facsimilied at Edmonton Anno 1886 by Wm. Muir, E. Druitt, H.T. Muir, and J.T. Watts.

      Edmonton: William Muir, 1886. 4to, [25] leaves including the preliminary and final blank. Original wrappers, upper cover lettered in manuscript (by Muir?) and signed and numbered by Muir. Copy #50 of 50 copies, signed by Muir. Includes “ All Religions are One”, and Muir's own version of the missing plate b5. Essick notes: There is No Natural Religion. The "Preface," dated 1886, indicates that the facsimile is based on plates "in the British Museum [copy A] and from some papers in my own possession [copy L]." However, the printed front wrapper of Muir's Europe facsimile (1887) indicates that "Mr. Burt's copy [H?--which, according to Joseph Viscomi, is a forgery]" was also used. This would seem to be correct since copies A and L are printed in olive and green, whereas plates a1, a2, and b1 in the facsimile are in brown, as in copy H. Also includes plate 2 of All Religions are One, the original of which is bound into There is No Natural Religion copy M, and Muir's own version of the missing plate b5. Delivered to Quaritch 8 Sept. 1886. Note: There is No Natural Religion copy M also printed in brown, but it seems unlikely that this was "Mr. Burt's copy" since copy M was in the Tulk family collection until 1956.” BB#249(g). Bentley, Blake Books, 249 G. The Templeton Crocker/Herbert M. Evans copy with the Crocker bookplate at the front and Howell’s note “HME” at the back (priced $100).

        The Mayor of Casterbridge.

      London: Smith, Elder & Co.,, 1886. The Life and Death of a Man of Character. 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. 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 Browning, Somerset Maugham and Oscar Wilde; she also formed a somewhat unlikely friendship with the reserved and society-averse Edith Wharton. In A Backward Glance, Wharton described meeting Thomas Hardy several times over luncheon at St Helier's: "I found it comparatively easy to carry on a mild chat on literary matters... I felt he was completely closed in his own creative dream"), and wrote affectionately of St Helier herself: "Others have done justice to her tireless and intelligent activities on the London County Council... I wish to record that this woman, who figured to hundreds merely as the most indefatigable and imperturbable of hostesses, a sort of automatic entertaining machine, had a vigorous personality of her own, and the most generous and independent character". Rideing recalled, "Fortunate were those who, visiting London, took with them a letter of introduction to Lady Jeune … She more than anybody else fused and liberalized London society, leading it out of the ruts of rank and class into a fellowship with art and letters, and surprising both elements by the results of her tact and magnetism. An introduction to her became a passport to many social privileges … Her intellectual and political influence was as great as the charm which made her salon so brilliant" (Rideing, p. 280). This is an assembled set, with St Helier's cupid bookplate (as Mary Jeune) to the front pastedown of the first volume; the second volume is from the library of the bibliographer of Victorian novelists, Walter E. Smith, with his lightly pencilled ownership inscription to the front free endpaper.

        Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

      London Longmans 1886 - First edition, first issue with wrapper correction in ink by the publisher, small 8vo., [viii], 141, [1, blank] pp., (lacking final leaf, K8, with advertisements), signed by Frederic Dannay on the half-title as Barnaby Ross and Ellery Queen, pseudonyms for works co-written with his cousin, Manfred B. Lee, publisher's perfect binding in original light brown wrappers printed in red and blue, rebacked in matching paper, wrappers lightly soiled, edges lightly worn with a couple of short closed tears and soft marginal creases, restoration to inner margin of final leaf, page edges lightly worn with occasional minor, marginal soiling, contemporary owner signature to title-page, else very good. A very well restored copy with excellent provenance, preserved in a bespoke solander box. A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone and basis for several films, including John S. Robertson's 1920 adaptation providing John Barrymore with a career-defining role. One of the author's most enduring works (the other being Treasure Island), Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was an immediate success and helped cement Stevenson's reputation. The work is decidedly 'dark' in classification since it presents a jarring and horrific exploration of various conflicting traits lurking within a single person. The success of the book enjoys longevity in its international acclaim, inspiring countless stage productions and more than 100 films. The book was in fact ready in December 1885 but because 'the bookstalls were already full of Christmas numbers, etc. and the trade would not look at it, publication was postponed until January 1886 and the date on the cover altered by the pen' (Mr. Charles Longman in Balfour's Life, ii, 14). 'Until 1886 [Stevenson] had never earned much.by his pen. But in that year came two successes that greatly increased his reputation and with it his power to earn. These were The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Kidnapped. Tthe former, founded partly on a dream, is a striking apologue of the double-life of man. The success of these two tales, both with the critics and the public, established Stevenson's position at the head of the younger English writers of his day' (DNB).

        A Memoir of Shelley.

      London: printed for The Shelley Society by Richard Clay and Sons,, 1886. (With a fresh preface). Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine and sides in black. Portrait frontispiece, and engraved plate by Finden. Manuscript label to upper inner corner of front board. Ends and corners somewhat worn, spine a little dust soiled, a few minor marks to covers, spotting to endleaves, a very good copy. First separate edition, subscriber C. R. Ashbee's copy with an autograph letter from Rossetti tipped in. This is the uncommon first separate edition of Rossetti's memoir of Shelley, which was first published as part of the 1870 edition of Shelley's poems, but here issued by The Shelley Society with a new preface by Rossetti. The autograph letter from Rossetti, dated January 1886, acknowledges the recipient's subscription to the Shelley Society, and notes that "every member receives gratis, as part of the equivalent for his subscription, all the publications of the Society". The copy has woodcut bookplate of Arts & Crafts designer Charles Robert Ashbee (1863-1942), a follower of William Morris, who in 1888 founded the Guild and School of Handicraft, and then in 1898 with Laurence Hodson founded The Essex House Press, intended as a successor to the Kelmscott Press. Ashbee's Essex House press printed fine editions of Shelley's Prometheus Unbound (1904) and also A Letter from Percy B. Shelley to T. Peacock, July, MDCCCXVI (1901). This copy thus rather nicely connects the Romantic poets, via the Pre-Raphaelites, to the Arts & Crafts movement.

        The Complete Works of Robert Burns

      Philadelphia: Gebbie and Co, 1886. The Complete Works of Robert Burns. Octavo, 6 volumes, original cloth with gilt titles and tooling to the spine and front panels. Illustrated with 60 fine etchings and wood cuts, maps and facsimilies. In fine condition. Robert Burns was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a light Scots dialect, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland. He also wrote in standard English, and in these writings his political or civil commentary is often at its bluntest. He is regarded as a pioneer of the Romantic movement, and after his death he became a great source of inspiration to the founders of both liberalism and socialism, and a cultural icon in Scotland and among the Scottish diaspora around the world.

I wish to record that this woman, who figured to hundreds merely as the most indefatigable and imperturbable of hostesses, a sort of automatic entertaining machine, had a vigorous personality of her own, and the most generous and independent character". Rideing recalled, "Fortunate were those who, visiting London, took with them a letter of introduction to Lady Jeune She more than anybody else fused and liberalized London society, leading it out of the ruts of rank and class into a fellowship with art and letters, and surprising both elements by the results of her tact and magnetism. An introduction to her became a passport to many social privileges Her intellectual and political influence was as great as the charm which made her salon so brilliant" (Rideing, p. 280). This is an assembled set, with St Helier's cupid bookplate (as Mary Jeune) to the front pastedown of the first volume; the second volume is from the library of the bibliographer of Victorian novelists, Walter E. Smith, with his lightly pencilled ownership inscription to the front free endpaper.

        The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

      London; Longmans, Green, and Co. 1886. 8vo. Sometime finely bound in full navy blue morocco, spine with 5 raised bands, panelled and lettered direct in gilt, with gilt beaded bands, single ruled panel in gilt to boards, a decorative gilt roll to board edges, attractive gilt-ruled turn-ins and Cockerell blue marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, by Bayntun-Rivière; pp. [viii], [1]-141 + [i], advertisement; externally fine and handsome, internally remarkably fresh throughout with one 15mm, and neatly repaired, closed scarf tear to fore-edge margin of one leaf but otherwise crisp and unnmarked; scarce thus. First U.K. edition, published on January 9, 1886, four days after Charles Scribner's Sons' American edition. Longmans had planned to pubish in December '85 but the marketplace was overwhelmed with Christmas books and a decision was taken to postpone release.' The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde' is, along with Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' and Bram Stoker's 'Dracula', one the best known horror stories in the English language. Although it missed the Christmas market, with publication delayed until the January of 1886, it was immediate bestseller, fulfilling Stevenson's intentions of making him a lot of money. It has been in print ever since. It is the retelling of the classic Gothic story of 'the double'; a second personality inhabiting the true self, conveyed with all the oppressive atmosphere of a grimy industrial London, as the author gradually discloses the true identity of the "damned juggernaut" Mr. Hyde who resides behind the door to the home of the respectable Dr. Jekyll. The phrase 'Jekyll and Hyde' has become a metaphor for a split personality just as, in the 1880s, the psychological phenomenon it explored was used to explain a new sort of primaeval savagery seen in the urban murders by Jack the Ripper.

        Apontamentos para o estudo das linguas falladas pelos indigenas da provincia portugueza de Moçambique na Costa Oriental dÁfrica. [On front wrapper] Fasciculo I [all published]: Vocabulario da lingua Mávia, Districto de Cabo Delgado.

      Luanda, Imprensa Nacional, 1886. - Large 8°, contemporary lime green quarter cloth over marbled boards, smooth spine with gilt short author-title, original purple printed wrappers bound in. Tables and columns in text. Repair to lower outer corner of front wrapper. Very small repairs to holes in rear wrapper. Overall in good to very good condition. Author's four-line contemporary ink inscription on upper portion of front wrapper: "Ao Ex.mo Sr. Tito A. de Carvalho // ll.mo Deputado por Moçambique // off. // o autor". Old purple stamped monogram (initials "M" and "P") on title page. 102 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. After an introductory study of African languages in general and those of Moçambique in particular, from p. [33] begins a "Vocabulario da lingua Mavia", with "Do povo Mavia" on pp. [35]-36, "Observações grammaticaes" on pp. [37]-56, and the Portuguese-Mavia dictionary occupying the rest of the book, consisting of three columns: Portuguez, Quimavia, and Quimaconde.Joaquim de Almeida da Cunha (?-1900), noted colonialist, received a law degree from Coimbra University in 1867, and was secretary to the governor of Moçambique in 1880, then serving as general secretary for the province until 1884, when he became Portuguese consul in Zanzibar. In 1886 he was nominated to be general secretary for Angola, a post he maintained until 1891, when he returned to continental Portugal. He took up his old position in Angola from 1897 until death in Luanda in 1900. The first press established in Angola, and for many years the only press in that country, was the Imprensa do Governo, or Imprensa Nacional, which apparently began operations in Luanda 13 September 1845 with the publication of the Boletim Oficial de Angola. The next known work of the press is a collection of poetry by José da Silva Maia Ferreira, Espontaneidades da minha alma, 1849 (see Mário António Fernandes de Oliveira, "O primeiro livro de poemas publicado na Africa Portuguesa," Revista Occidente LXXIX [Lisbon, 1970] pp. 1-38). Regulations for the Port of Loanda appeared in 1849, and an Oraçao funebre by António Augusto Teixeira de Vasconcelos was printed in 1851. Works printed in Angola during the 1840s, 1850s and 1860s are extremely rare on the market, and works printed there during the 1870s and 1880s only slightly less so. As specialists in Portuguese books since 1969, we have not handled more than five or six works printed in Angola prior to 1880, and only a few more titles from the 1880s.Provenance: Tito Augusto de Carvalho (1841-1902), high-ranking official of the Ministério da Marinha and journalist, was several times elected parliamentary deputy for the Partido Regenerador. Greatly interested in colonial affairs, he collaborated in a number of newspapers, including Economista, Comércio do Porto, Jornal de Notícias, Diário de Notícias, Correio da Manhã, and Revista colonial marítima. He was vice president of the Sociedade de Geografia and other public-spirited organizations. See Grande enciclopédia, VI, 86.*** Grande enciclopédia VIII, 260-1.

        The Queen's House

      London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1886. 3 vols. 1st edition. Publisher's cloth, fine condition, a paragon of beauty and preservation. Rare. No sales at auction in 50 years though copies may well have been sold lotted with other books and therefore not recorded in ABPC's auction records. However, only 9 sets have been located by OCLC and COPAC in national, and university libraries around the world, and these global library cooperatives deliver a more reliable census for raw numbers, but can be misleading in their own way because they include the imperfect, the defective, the misdescribed, the repaired, the rebound, the abused, the broken, the now lost, the ugly, the spectral, and the forsaken. The title is taken from the old name of the Lieutenant's lodgings in the Tower of London, and the Tower itself is a presence in (almost a character in) the tale of a young woman, bookish and antiquarian, who choses wrongly in a man, and learns that love won't die of starvation, and can barely be killed by indigestion. fine.

        Jenseits von Gut und BÖse. Vorspiel einer Philosophie der Zukunft

      1886 - First Edition. 8vo (215 x 115 mm). vi, [2], 271, [1], pp. A hint of spotting to the title and a few other leaves. Modernhalf calf over marbled boards, marbled edges, spine ruled and lettered in gilt with green morocco label. A fine copy. Leipzig, C.G. Naumann. First Edition of Nietzsche?s most widely read work and surely the most lucid statement of his philosophy. Beyond Good and Evil is a potent expression of Nietzsche?s genealogical method of historic philosophy,explicating a ?natural history of morals? that would informhis following work, On the Genealogy of Morality, andexert considerable influenceacrosstwentieth-century philosophy, no more so than in the works of Michel Foucault. It also contains the fullest expressions of two of Nietzsche?s key doctrines. It was the first explicit statement ofthe famous conception of master-slave morality and contains eleven direct references to the Will to Power, the most in any ofhis published works. Having parted with Schmeitzner in early 1886, and after several failed attempts to find another publisher, Nietzsche opted to publish Beyond Good and Evil by way of the ?vanity press? He contacted C. G. Naumann of Leipzig, ?who had done the private printing of Zarathustra IV ?, and arranged a press run of 600 copies (Schaberg, 1995, The Nietzsche Canon: A Publication History and Bibliography, p. 122). And yet, Nietzsche would once again struggle to achieve any real commercial success, selling only 114 copies within the first ten months (Schaberg, 1995, p. 126). It would, however, be republished twice within Nietzsche?s lifetime, with second and third editions appearing in 1891 and 1893 respectively. Schaberg 40. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

At its peak of popularity, the weekly circulation is estimated to have been over 350,000. It initially ceased publication after 1,679 issues in 1916. After three failed comebacks, Ally Sloper was finally curtailed in 1977.

        Freemasonry

      May 20, 1886. A spectacular piece, an elaborate engraved vellum document, one page, 19" x 24", New York, May 20, 1886 being a Masonic certificate granted unto Master Mason Edward B. Harper. The certificate is officially a history of the member's service to date and is titled as such: <I>"MASONIC REGISTER AND HISTORY OF BRO. EDWARD B. HARPER F. & A. M. RAISED TO THE SUBLIME DEGREE OF MASTER MASON, FEB. 17, 1864"</I>. Here we find that Edwards, born in Dover Delaware in 1842, was initiated as an apprentice in 1864. He had been a member of the Union Lodge (No. 121) in Philadelphia in 1871. This document certifies that he was then a member of the Crescent Lodge in New York (No. 402). A stunning piece of artwork, the base of which is an engraving by the noted John Sartain (1808-97) of Philadelphia. The engraving had been printed by his brother Henry Sartain and published by Wellington Jones & Co. of Philadelphia. Interestingly both brothers are Master Masons as well and add "33°" after their names in the credits. The engraving, which of course is dripping in Masonic symbolism, is a visual treat: elaborately embellished with gilt accents to the lettering, a sharp albumen photograph of Harper at center, and elaborate hand lettering and decorations. One of the finest pieces of Masonic paper we have encountered, the piece qualifies as a piece of fine art and as folk art. Bears light folds, a few very minor pin holes, some minor toning at bottom margin, else very fine with excellent contrast and sharpness to the engraving and albumen.
