        A History of New-York,

      New York: for the Grolier Club,, 1886. from the beginning of the world to the end of the Dutch dynasty; containing, among many surprising and curious matters, the unutterable ponderings of Walter the Doubter, the disastrous projects of William the testy, and the chivalric achievements of Peter the Headstrong - the three Dutch governors of New Amsterdam; being the only authentic history of the times that ever hath been or ever will be published. A new edition, containing unpublished corrections of the author, with illustrations by Geo. H. Boughton, Will H. Drake, and Howard Pyle, and etchings by Henry C. Eno and F. Raubicheck. 2 volumes, octavo. Full dark green crushed morocco by the Club Bindery (signed 1901), raised bands milled gilt to spine forming compartments, titles to second, third and foot gilt, remaining compartments with elaborate floral corner- and centrepieces gilt, French fillet to covers within foliate roll-tool border and enclosing dotted roll and elaborate arabesque cornerpieces gilt, all edges gilt, red and yellow endbands, broad turn-ins richly gilt, marbled endpapers. Housed within matching green straight-grain morocco-effect skiver slipcases. Etched frontispiece in 3 states to each volume, 5 plates of which 1 folding, wood-engraved head- and tailpieces in brown and figurative initials in black, several historiated. Pencilled annotation to vol. I, p. 312. A fine copy. First and only Grolier edition, limited to 175 copies printed on Holland paper (with a further two on vellum): a conscious attempt by the Grolier Club "to make a book with illustrations and typography worthy of the subject-matter. Many of the head-bands are from Dutch models; the paper is Dutch; the types, new to this country, are fac-similes of those used by Elzevir, at Leyden, in 1659" (preface). The text itself differs substantially from the first edition, published in 1809, as it is based instead on the manuscript of Irving's "entirely revised" version dating from 1848. Washington Irving's first book was a sly satire on self-important local history and also a Federalist critique of Jeffersonian democracy, narrated by the imaginary "Dietrich Knickerbocker", supposedly an eccentric Dutch-American scholar. The pen-name (literally meaning "toy marble-maker") was borrowed from Irving's friend Herman Knickerbocker, and the word subsequently entered into American usage and the English language. DAB estimates that this "sprawling burlesque … may be reasonably called the first great book of comic literature written by an American.

Small inkstamp to title page. $500. * Fourth edition. Brazil enjoyed a remarkable period of rapid material progress and international importance under Emperors Pedro I and, especially, Pedro II, who reigned from 1831 to 1891. The government enacted a law in 1823 calling for the gradual replacement of the Portuguese Ordenacoes with codes informed by the Enlightenment ideas of the eighteenth century and the work of Jeremy Bentham. A Projecto for commercial law was published in 1836, another in 1838. The code was enacted in 1850 and its first two editions were published in 1858 and 1869. The later editions (1878, 1886, 1896) are the best because they contain extensive commentary. All of these early editions are rare. OCLC locates 6 copies of the 1886 edition in North America (Columbia, George Washington University, Harvard, University of Arizona, University of Pennsylvania, Yale). Another copy located at the Library of Congress. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 4:32.

        This Ugly Civilization

      New York: Simon and Schuster. First Edition. Borsodi's first full-scale work calling for a return to agrarian homesteading and human-scale technologies. This Ugly Civilization, written at the height of (and as a direct attack on) the influence of the rhapsodists of the "Machine Age," is a prescient and scathing indictment of 20th-century industrial consumerist society and its attendant evils. The work of Ralph Borsodi (b. 1886) would become a major influence on the Vietnam-era "back-to-the-land" movement, and this book, his largest and most forceful, became something of its bible. Long sought-after and long out-of-print, attractive copies are still hard to come by, even in the post-internet age; rare in dustjacket. Octavo (23cm); light gray paper over black cloth, with gray spine label printed in black; dustjacket; 468pp. Hint of sunning to spine label, with a touch of dusting to text edges; very Near Fine. Dustjacket is price-clipped, lightly edgeworn, with a few tiny nicks to spine ends and upper corners with several short tears; Very Good+.

        Dapes inemptae, of de Moufe-schans, dat is, de soeticheydt des buyten-levens, vergheselschapt met de boucken. Afgedeelt in X gangen. Nieuwe editie.Leiden, Daniel Roels (colophon: printed by Joris Abrahamsz van der Marsce), 1621. 8vo. With woodcut view of a country-house on title-page. Contemporary overlapping vellum, modern endpapers.

      J.G. Frederiks, "Petrus Hondius", in: TNTL VI (1886), pp. 103-159; Simoni H-168; Waller 826; cf. Dash, Tulipomania (1999). Much expanded second, and the first authorized, edition of a long Dutch poem celebrating life on the country house Moffenschans (literally "Trenches of the Krauts"). It's the second known Dutch poem in the genre known as "hofdicht" (country house poetry) and particularly interesting because of its autobiographical character. The author, Pertus Hondius, appears to be a permanent guest in the house owned by Terneuzen's mayor Johan Serlippens, as he had brought his own library and helped shaping the renowned garden. The poem is divided into ten parts: staring with a comparison between city and country, followed by descriptions of the country house, the flower-garden, the kitchen-garden and the garden of medical herbs, a chapter on dining and cookery and four parts on different exercises and activities.Hondius is known for growing tulips and his enthusiasm is reflected in verses celebrating their beauty. He even hints at the upcoming tulip craze: "All these fools want is tulip bulbs | Heads and hearts have but one wish | Let's try and eat them; it will make us laugh | to taste how bitter is that dish" (translation by Dash). After Terneuzen was liberated from the Spaniards in 1583 by Maurice of Nassau, he had his German brother in law, Philips van Hohenlohe, built fortifications around the city, including an entrenchment just outside the city walls, which became known as the Moffenschans (literally "Trenches of the Krauts"). After the German troops had left, the ground was bought by Terneuzen's mayor Serlippens, who built a country house and garden, maintaining its original name.Title-page slightly soiled and a few spots and minor wormholes. Four of five sewing supports broken and the bookblock almost completely separated from the binding between the first and second leaf. Still a very good copy.

        Cashel Byron's Profession. A Novel

      The Modern Press, [London] 1886 - First Separate Edition, smaller Issue. 1 vols. 8vo. In Original Wrappers. Originally printed in the April 1885-March 1886 issues of "To-Day", this first edition was printed from the corrected and revised stereos of the original setting for the journal. This is the smaller, variant issue measuring approx. 23.3 x 14.8 cm, and with the preliminary blank leaf bound at the end. Shaw explains the variant this way: 'The size of the bigger copies is due to the fact that they reproduced not only the type but the format of To-day. But the booksellers objected that in this form it occupied too much room to be displayed on their stalls and counters. It was probably cut down as far as the margins would allow to meet this objection' (Laurence). Laurence A3; Hartley 1701 Very minor marginal staining to a few leaves, otherwise internally fine. Blue paper wrappers, lettered in red and black; skillfully rebacked, some minor soiling to covers, spine skillfully repaired. Bookplate of George Mason, Piedmont Farm.

        PHANTOM LOVER: A FANTASTIC STORY .

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1886 - Small octavo, pp. [1-2] [1] ii [3] 4-134, original mustard cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red. First U.S. edition. "Of Lee's best fiction, only two stories are set outside of Italy. In its quiet way, the earlier of these -- first published in booklet form as A PHANTOM LOVER (1886) and subsequently in HAUNTINGS (1890) as 'Oke of Okehurst' -- is as much a tour de force as her flamboyant Don Juan fantasy "The Virgin of the Seven Daggers" (written 1889; published in FOR MAURICE, 1927). Perhaps somewhat undervalued because of its drenched, tepid English setting, and because its protagonists are at least superficially routine creations, 'Oke of Okehurst' nevertheless demonstrates that its author, in 1886, breathed the same literary atmosphere as Henry James and was capable of anticipating some of his explorations into the relationship between the narrator and what he narrates . If the contemporary reader detects an adumbration here of Henry James's 'The Turn of the Screw' (1898), he is unlikely to be misguided. 'Oke of Okehurst' depicts a folie a trois, and the reader is left as ambivalent about what truly happened as he is clearly meant to be in the later tale. Lee's novella can only gain by being read as an early tour de force in the presentation of an unreliable narrator. In this light, a quiet, overextended anecdote can be seen as a tale of genuine horror" - John Clute, Bleiler (ed), Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, pp. 331-32. "Her first important supernatural fiction . Along with the later 'The Turn of the Screw' (1898) by her friend Henry James, A PHANTOM LOVER fits remarkably well into Tsetvan Todorov's definition of the fantastic. A painter becomes obsessed with the similarity (almost certainly a matter of his own perception) between the woman he is painting and her ancestor, who was involved in a family tragedy. By the end of the tale, he has generated an uncanny further tragedy." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 570. "The tale is very subtly told and is by no means clear. Is it a story of marital discord, petty sadism, and madness? Is there really a ghostly lover? Is Mrs. Oke possessed? What share does the artist have in the events? Lee is not easily pinned down." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 256. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 114.

        Cashel Byron's Profession. A Novel

      [London]: The Modern Press, 1886. First Separate Issue, smaller variant, measuring 23.5 x 14.9 cm. 1 vols. 8vo. Wrapper a little soiled, spine worn and skillfully repaired. In green quarter morocco slipcase with chemise. First Separate Issue, smaller variant, measuring 23.5 x 14.9 cm. 1 vols. 8vo. Originally printed in the April 1885-March 1886 issues of "To-Day", this first edition was printed from the corrected and revised stereos of the original setting for the journal. This is the smaller, variant issue measuring approximately 23.3 x 14.8 cm, and with the preliminary blank leaf bound at the end. Shaw explains the variant this way: 'The size of the bigger copies is due to the fact that they reproduced not only the type but the format of To-day. But the booksellers objected that in this form it occupied too much room to be displayed on their stalls and counters. It was probably cut down as far as the margins would allow to meet this objection' - Laurence. Laurence A3

        L'EVE FUTURE

      Paris: M. de Brunhoff, Editeur,. 1886. bound in late nineteenth or early twentieth-century full red pebbled morocco, spine panel lettered in gold, inner dentelles, t.e.g. other edges untrimmed, marbled endpapers, ribbon marker, with the original wrappers printed in red and black (illustrated by Aug.-Francois Gorguet) preserved.. A fine copy. (#150130). First edition. A complete version of L'EVE FUTURE was first published in LA VIE MODERNE, 18 July 1885 -- 27 March 1886, and in book form in 1886. "A handsome young lord despairs when his fiancee turns out to be extremely crass -- but a fictional character called Thomas Alva Edison comes to the rescue with an impeccable robot duplicate. Seen as an important contribution to the Symbolist movement, the novel is philosophical, ironic and mockingly contorted." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), pp. 1282-83. "A remarkable work that deserves more attention than it has received. Although it has had little influence in the English-speaking world, it is undoubtedly to be ranked in quality and thought-provoking power with FRANKENSTEIN, EREWHON, and WE." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 2259. In reality, Thomas A. Edison invented a now long forgotten talking doll (Eve) with a phonograph in its chest (see EDISON'S EVE by Gaby Wood, 2003). Villiers may well have seen one.

        Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

      London Longmans 1886 - First edition, Sml. 8vo, bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe in full black morocco, gilt, all edges gilt and original paper wrappers bound in; some light spotting to half-title otherwise very clean throughout. 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Autograph Letter, Signed, from Frances Willard, Politely soliciting funds from Mrs. Wallace

      Evanston, Ill, 1886. 1p. on WNCTU stationery. With the original envelope. 1 vols. Old fold lines. Minor wear. Near fine. 1p. on WNCTU stationery. With the original envelope. 1 vols. Letter written by Frances Willard to Mrs. Wallace, indicating that she has asked Dr. Bushnell to "call on you and hoped you might help us out on current expenses. She has come by my request, wholly on faith and I want to make that 'materialize' in the form of 'current expenses.'" Willard was prominent in both the suffrage and temperance movements, and was influential in the passage of the 18th and 19th amendments (prohibition and votes for women, respectively); she also helped found the Woman's Christian Temperance Union in 1874. Willard's platform of "Home Protection" as the premise behind suffrage was designed to appeal to women everywhere. She held that if a woman had the right to vote, she could better protect her home and family and improve society.
