        Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

      Longman’s Green and Co 1886 - FIRST UK EDITION, one or two finger marks, bound without the advertisements, pp. [viii], 141, crown 8vo, contemporary or near contemporary blue cloth, titled in gilt on the spine, good This copy may have been one of those in the first issue wrappers, since it would not have been necessary to rebind a copy in the salmon-coloured cloth. The front wrapper had the date 1885 with the publishers intending it for the Christmas market, but when it was ready the shops were already full of Christmas stock and the trade wouldn’t look at. Therefore it was delayed until January, which allowed the US edition to appear first, by a matter of four days.‘In his fiction Stevenson is seen exploring moral ambiguity and duality in human nature; a recurring theme is the contrast and conflict between good and evil. He achieved world-wide success with his "shilling shocker" Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1886), a moral allegory about the divided self and the problem of evil, the main incidents of which came to him in a dream. The characters of Jekyll and Hyde have become proverbial and the story has been widely translated, reprinted in countless editions, and dramatized (if often distorted) in plays and films’ (ODNB).

Halford, universally acknowledged as the founder of modern dry fly angling. In An Angler's Autobiography, Halford referred to this book as the result of several years' collaboration with G.S. Marryat, respected as the greatest angler of his day but who ultimately declined to use his name in the published book. "R.B. Marston, whose firm Sampson Low were the publishers, arranged for tantalizing advertisements to appear from time to time in The Fishing Gazette announcing that publication was imminent - The result was that by 17 April [1886] the whole of the de luxe edition (100 copies on large paper at thirty shillings) had already been sold out before publication" (Hayter).

Henry Siegel Large paper edition, on handmade paper, one of 100 copies for England. 8vo (9 3/4 x 6 3/8 inches). Title page printed in red and black.

        Bibliography of South Australia

      Adelaide: E. Spiller, Government Printer, 1886. Octavo, 118 pp., lithographic title-page and wrappers, an outstanding copy in a navy quarter calf bookform box with gilt lettering. Scarce bibliography bearing the bookplate of Sir Henry Ayers, the successful colonial entrepreneur and longstanding premier of South Australia after whom Ayer's Rock was named.The bibliography was prepared by Thomas Gill, a South Australian resident and book collector, for distribution at the London Colonial & Indian Exhibition of 1886. This copy is beautifully preserve in the original lithographic wrappers featuring a bushland scene with native flora and fauna. Gill was a keen collector of Australiana, with a considerable personal collection reflecting his interests in geography, exploration and Aboriginal life. This bibliography was principally compiled from the publications in the author's library, and some years later in 1903 he published a bibliography of the Northern Territory.

SUMMARY: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is an 1876 novel about a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River. The story is set in the fictional town of St. Petersburg, inspired by Hannibal, Missouri, where Twain lived. Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother Sid. Tom dirties his clothes in a fight and is made to whitewash the fence the next day as punishment. He cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He then trades the treasures for Sunday School tickets which one normally receives for memorizing verses, redeeming them for a Bible, much to the surprise and bewilderment of the superintendent who thought "it was simply preposterous that this boy had warehoused two thousand sheaves of Scriptural wisdom on his premises—a dozen would strain his capacity, without a doubt." BACKGROUND: Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "the Great American Novel". CONDITION: Condition is Good/Very Good. Some wear to edges, inner spine strengthened, little glue repair to inner hinge paper at end pages/still some wear, first few pages stick out a little but secure, pages are very good, slight age tone, slight crinkle to spine, hinges/text block are very good for close to 130 years old!!!

      London, Dulau and Co., 1886. 4to (310 x 250mm). pp. viii, 326, xx , (10), with 1 double page coloured map, 81 fine handcoloured lithographed plates after drawings by the author and numerous woodcut vignettes of views. Contemporary olive green morocco, covers with gilt border and fleurons at corners, richly gilt spine in 6 compartments, gilt edges, inner dentelles (lower corners a bit pumbed). A beautifully bound copy of the finest work ever published on the Genus Crocus. "George Maw (1839-1912) was the industrious author and illustrator of his great 'Monograph of the Genus Crocus' (1886). A many-sided and remarkable man, Maw was not a botanist by profession but a chemist and geologist, a manufacturer of encaustic tiles at Broseley, Staffs. His monograph, the result of ten years of inquiry, was the most complete work of its kind that has been published on any genus. The plates of this work are marvels of comprehensive detail and put to shame those of many more skilled draughtmen. From a botanical point of view this work is a landmark..."(Blunt & Stearn p. 277 & 279). Maw collected in the Near East and North Africa. Plate 17 was never published.//An interesting association copy. On free endpaper the following has been written: "To Charles Maw from his affectionate cousin. The author.

        PERSONAL MEMOIRS OF U. S. GRANT

      New York Charles L. Webster and Co. 1885, 1886 - 2 volumes. First edition of both volumes in publisher’s deluxe bindings. With 49 maps and illustrations, including two steel-engraved frontisportraits and two etched views, all with tissue-guards. Also with the dedication from Grant in holograph facsimile. Tall, thick 8vo, publisher’s very scarce and best original deluxe bindings of full tan calf, the spines with gilt ruled raised bands and red and blue morocco labels lettered in gilt. 584; 647, index. An unusually handsome and pleasing set in the scarce publisher’s deluxe and most expensive and best binding state. An unusually well preserved set. About as fine as could be expected, some evidence of age, but without question, one would be hard pressed to ever find a better copy. RARE FIRST EDITION IN UNUSUALLY NICE CONDITION. VERY SCARCE IN THIS FORMAT AND DELUXE BINDING STATE. ‘THE FINEST MEMOIRS OF WAR EVER PENNED’. An important historical memoir of the Civil War, arguably the most important, and the best thing that Grant ever wrote. General Norman Schwartzkopf has recently called this the finest memoir of war experiences that has ever been penned. Collectible copies of these books are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. Copies in this binding, especially so. The earliest days of the Civil War were a hard lesson in hubris for the Union Army. After the appointment of Grant to overall command of the Union forces, the war would quickly turn to their favor. In the years following the war Grant would move into the political arena, even against his best judgement and would, with great public accaim be elected President of United States for two full terms.

        Anna Karenina

      Boston and New York : Thomas Y. Crowell & Company , 1886 First English Language Edition and First U.S. Edition, Translated by Nathan Haskell Dole. Copyright date 1886 with no later dates or printings indicated. The general bibliographic consensus is that the other Tolstoy titles opposite the title page determine the book's issue [i.e. the fewer the earlier]. This edition has NO titles opposite the title page. A scarce collectible copy of this literary classic. Bound in full leather, all page edges gilt, purple marbled end papers, raised bands on spine, gilt titles with elaborate gilt foliate decoration. Frontispiece is a photographic portrait of the author. Leather covers have some shelf wear especially at corners, with some scuffing to spine panel. Gilt titles are bright and clean. Binding is square and solid. Interior pages are clean with no markings and no foxing. The corner of the last blank page, pp.769/770 before a 3-page glossary, is bent and cut at the bottom corner, without impinging on the text. Frontispiece is a photographic portrait of the author. ***When he first read this novel, Dostoyevsky wrote: “Anna Karenina is sheer perfection as a work of art. No European work of fiction of our present day comes anywhere near it.” First issued serially in Russia in 1873; and first published in book form in Moscow, 1878; this translation was issued simultaneously in an English issue.*** Several binding variants were released, including brown, blue, and red cloth, though no priority exists. I am uncertain whether this is a deluxe binding or a rebinding at a later date. A celebrated classic and a significant book for any serious literature collection.

        Autograph, signed letters.

      1886 - JOHNSTON, General Joseph E., CSA. Two Autograph, signed letters, dated 1/27/1886 and 3/13/1891, to a young lady. The first thanks her for her letter "in the stile of a young lady, from you who were a little girl in the days when I saw you often," and promises her a framed picture of him. (With traces of glue and a tear with small loss to back page, not affecting text. 2ff., 8x5"). The second assures her that both uniform buttons he has sent were intended for her. "Will washing them with gold hide the dirt of six or eight and twenty years? I am afraid not." (Fine. 2ff., 7x4.5"). Like Lee, Johnston (1807-1891) was a Virginian of Revolutionary ancestry, who attended West Point. He distinguished himself against the Indians in Florida, and during the Mexican-American War. When Virginia seceded he resigned his commission as Brigadier-General and joined the Confederate Army. According to the DAB he was famous for remaining undefeated: "he disliked risks." His pessimistic, or perhaps realistic, view of the strength of the enemy led him to propose an armistice in 1865. After the war he served one term in Congress, the Commissioner of Railroads.
