        John Leech's Pictures of Life and Character

      London - Bradbury, Agnew and Co., 1886. London - Bradbury, Agnew and Co., 1886 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A decorative,extensive compendium of illustrations from Punch magazine, in three volumes. Each volume comprises John Leech's humorous illustrations, with captions, from the collection of Mr. Punch, 1842-1864. John Leech(18171864), humorous artist and illustrator . . . became aregular contributor [to Punch] from the end of 1842. In July 1843 he began a series of Cartoons, full-page subjects satirising the Westminster Hall murals. The name stuck and so Leech effectively gave to the English language the meaning of cartoon as a large satirical print. For the next twenty years he produced hundreds of brilliant and incisive sporting and domestic illustrations for the weekly magazine. They were collected together as Pictures of Life and Character (185469) and reissued again in the 1880s (DNB). Complete in three volumes. Condition: In decorative red cloth bindings with gilt detailing. Externally smart, though with some marks to the boards and some light bumping to the head of the spine. Internally, firmly bound.

        One Thing Needful

      London - John and Robert Maxwell, 1886. London - John and Robert Maxwell, 1886 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of this extremely scarce Victorian novel. Mary Elizabeth Braddon (4 October 1835 4 February 1915) was a British Victorian era popular novelist. She is best known for her 1862 sensation novel Lady Audley's Secret. During the four years following Lady Audley's Secret Braddon defied her critics by publishing eight novels, often writing several novels for serialization at once; as she remarked to Bulwer-Lytton, I have never written a line that has not been written against time (Wolff, Sensational Victorian, 134). Although accused of beginning the reign of bigamy as an interesting and fashionable crime and inventing the fair haired demon of modern fiction (Oliphant, Novels, 263), after Aurora Floyd she turned to more decorous drawing-room fiction. Eleanor's Victory (1863), The Doctor's Wife (1864), and The Lady's Mile (1866) were gentler society novels. In 1866 Maxwell founded the Belgravia Magazine, a fiction journal which would be edited by Braddon for ten years and carried serials of many of her novels. Later that year her third child died, but she continued to write through a period of depression, publishing her twentieth novel by 1868. (DNB)Complete in three volumes. Condition: Rebacked in cloth with the original boards and backstrip. Externally sound, though with some wear to the original leather. Three hinges strained, with one hinge tender and held by the cords only. Internally, binding tender. Pages are bright,though with some scatteredspotting to the endpapers. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

        Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde [Signed]

      Longmans, Green, and Co., London 1886 - A Very Good copy of the scarce second edition in the Publisher's original buff wrappers printed in red and blue, and with the front wrapper also decorated in blue, SIGNED BY ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON on the title page (the end portions of the delicate spine have perished but most of the spine -- on which a prior owner has penned the book's title -- remains in place and the chipped wrappers remain delicately attached, tape remnants to the spine side of each wrapper, stitching still holding the page block together with the pages mildly age toned at the edges, small stain to the upper margin of each page as well as some discoloration at the half-title's lower right corner -- continuing in a rapidly diminishing amount for the first few pages, but otherwise the pages are rather clean with the very occasional spot), complete with the half-title and title, advertisements to the inner side of each wrapper. This scarce second edition of the wrappered issue which, like the first edition, carries the Publisher's ink correction to the date -- from "1885" to "1886" -- on the front wrapper. The novel originally had been scheduled for publication in December, 1885 but the book stalls were so full of Christmas numbers and other recent publications that publication was delayed until 1886. The book was quite a success and this second edition was published shortly after the first edition reached the book shops. (A prior owner's light pencil note to title page's upper margin reads "July Ed. / 1886".) A remarkable novel, of which Stevenson's fellow author and stepson Lloyd Osbourne stated: "I don't believe that there was ever such a literary feat before as the writing of Dr Jekyll. I remember the first disease of the world though it were yesterday. Louis came downstairs in a fever; read nearly half the book aloud; and then, while we were still gasping, he was away again, and busy writing. I doubt if the first draft took so long as three days." One of the great books of its, or any, era, which remains in print even today, which gave the English language the term "Jekyll and Hyde", of which well over 100 film versions have been made, and which in all probability will remain one of Stevenson's most known and most notable works. This is the only copy of the book signed by Stevenson we ever have seen in any edition. An altogether Very Good copy of the scarce second edition of this quite important Stevenson work, SIGNED BY ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON. RARE INDEED. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Ueber das Stoffwechselproduct des Pyridins

      Hirschfeld, Leipzig 1886 - His, Wilhelm, Jr. (1863-1934). Ueber das Stoffwechselproduct des Pyridins (Arbeiten aus dem Laboratorium für experimentelle Pharmakologie zu Strassburg). 8pp. Leipzig: J. B. Hirschfeld, 1886. 235 x 157 mm. Original printed wrappers, creased vertically, a little darkened at edges. Very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed by His to Carl Ludwig (1816-95) on the front wrapper: "Herrn Prof. Ludwig als Zeigen der Dankbarkeit und Verehrung, vom Verf." Stamps of the Ludwig Collection and of Lewis Hill Weed (1886-1952). First Edition, preceding the paper’s publication in the Archiv für experimentelle Pathologie und Pharmakologie 22 (1887). While a medical student at the University of Strasbourg, His discovered the body’s ability to methylate organic compounds when he isolated N-methyl-pyridinium hydroxide from the urine of dogs that had been dosed with pyridine acetate. The son of noted anatomist and embryologist Wilhelm His Sr. (1831-1904), the younger His went on make a notable contribution to cardiology with his discovery in 1893 of the "bundle of His," a specialized tissue in the heart that helps synchronize contraction of the cardiac muscles (see Garrison-Morton 836). He was one of the first to recognize that the heartbeat originates in the individual cells of heart muscle. His presented this copy of his paper to Carl Ludwig, the first professor of physiology at the University of Leipzig and founder of the physiological institute that now bears his name. His was working in Ludwig’s laboratory at the time he made his discovery of the bundle of His. This copy was later owned by neuroanatomist Lewis H. Weed, director of the Johns Hopkins Medical School from 1929-46; Weed discovered the origin of the cerebrospinal fluid and mapped its circulation (see Garrison-Morton 1439).

        MADAME BOVARY Provincial Manners Translated from the French by Eleanor Marx-Aveling

      London Vizetelly & Co. , 1886. London Vizetelly & Co. , 1886. First English edition. 8vo. Publisher's petrol blue cloth with gilt decorations, vignettes and lettering. 32 pages of adverts dated September 1886. A fine, bright copy. There is a slight spine lean and a bumped lower corner, page 296 has a slight production fault to the top edge resulting in a short closed edge tear. An unusually crisp copy. Frontispiece and five further black and white plates. The first published English translation of Flaubert's masterpiece translated by Eleanor Marx-Aveling, daughter of Karl Marx. Madame Bovary, Flaubert's debut novel, was five years in the making and was originally serialised in the Revue de Paris. The serialisation provoked charges of immorality and obscenity from the French government with a resulting trial from which Flaubert was acquitted. The publicity from the trial ensured that on publication the book became a bestseller. The heroine of the novel, Emma Bovary, is a Doctor's wife who finding provincial life dull seeks entertainment in extramarital affairs. She eventually commits suicide by swallowing arsenic, a fate which also befell her translator Eleanor Marx-Aveling.

The copy offered here lists six titles. The ads following the text also fluctuated depending on date of issue, with the earliest examples having five pages of ads. Our copy features four pages of ads. Several binding variants were released, including brown, blue, and red cloth, though no priority exists.
