        Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co. , 1886. First edition. Wrappers. Very Good. A bit less than Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, first state, in the Publisher's original buff wrappers printed in red and blue, and with the front wrapper also decorated in blue (spine perished and wrappers thus loose, but otherwise Very Good with the wrappers toned and spotted and showing modest wear, 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 but otherwise rather clean with the very occasional spot), complete with all pages including the half-title and title, and one page of terminal advertisements. (There also are advertisements for Longmans Magazine on inner front wrapper and advertisements for G.J. Whyte Melville’s works on inner rear wrapper.) This rather scarce state of the wrappered issue (identified by the Publisher's ink correction to the date -- from "1885" to "1886" on the front wrapper) preceded the UK hardcover by a week or so. The novel 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. 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. An externally less than Very Good, but repairable, copy -- with the interior in Near Fine condition -- of a quite important Stevenson work. RATHER SCARCE.

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.

Bound without the list of the author's other books, which is found in many copies before the title page and which is often used to assigned priority (issues with three books on the list are presumed to be earliest, followed by those with six titles). Bound with a five-page publisher's catalog at the rear advertising books published in 1885 or earlier, with no Russian authors included, in contrast to issues with the list, which are found with four pages of ads, mostly for Russian works first published by Crowell in 1886. While not conclusive proof, this suggests that the present issue may have priority over those others. Furthermore, the date of the original owner's inscription on the title page removes any doubt that it might have been issued after 1886. Line 39.

        æ ¡æ§˜é››å½¢é›£æ ¢ã®æ¢ [Moyo Hinagata Naniwa No Ume].

      - [Tokyo or Osaka 1886?]. Small quarto by size (245x185mm) publisher's decorated wrapper (not a printed title slip; spine backed with Japanese paper some time ago); colour woodblock title, three pages of text, two colour woodblocks of kimonoed women and children, 60 colour woodblocks of kimono designs, one with added embossing, on double pages in the older reverse form: folded in the gutter and pasted together at the outside edge. I'd say that this is the first of three volumes but it it isn't quite. The copy of Moyo Hinagata Naniwa No Ume in three volumes that I've found is clearly labelled first, middle and last on each wrapper title, does not have the three introductory pages of text that are in this, and the last four plates in this are the first four in the second volume. To complicate this more Yamanaka published a remarkably similar kimono pattern book in Osaka the same year with title that indicates it is the latest designs from the city. The peculiarities of the binding could lead to a long and inconclusive discussion of issues, regional distribution, remainders and mistakes; perhaps these things were put out in forms to fit every pocket and taste.

        Temple Bar:

      1886 - London - Richard Bentley and Son., 1884. 1886 - London - Richard Bentley and Son., 1884 Book. Very Good. Hardcover.

A rather congratulary review of the arrival of the impending publication appeared in the New York Times in October 1860 saying that it promised The name is a happy one; pregnant with good things and seasoned with the promise of Attic salt. It sold for about one shilling, and was one of the leading literary magazines of the era. 553 issues were published, up to 1906, about one a month.

        John Leech's Pictures of Life and Character. From the Collection of Mr Punch 1842-1864. In three volumes, bound as two

      64. In three volumes, bound as two, 1886. 64. In three volumes, bound as two, 1886 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Awonderful collection of the illustrations of the master Victorian caricaturist John Leech. With illustrated titles, frontispieces, and illustrations on every page with captions. Complete in three volumes bound as two. Punch, or the London Charivari was a British weekly magazine of humour and satire established in 1841 by Henry Mayhew and engraver Ebenezer Landells. Historically, it was most influential in the 1840s and 50s, when it helped to coin the term cartoon in its modern sense as a humorous illustration. Artists who published in Punch during the 1840s and 50s included John Leech, Richard Doyle, John Tenniel and Charles Keene. This group became known as The Punch Brotherhood, which also included Charles Dickens who joined Bradbury and Evans after leaving Chapman and Hall in 1843. John Leech (29 August 1817 29 October 1864 in London) was an English caricaturist and illustrator. In 1840 Leech began his contributions to magazines with a series of etchings in Bentley's Miscellany. He worked with etchings, lithographs, and wood engraving for a wide range of subject matter. It was in work for the wood-engravers that Leech was most prolific and individual. In 1841, Leech's connection with Punch began, a connexion which subsisted until his death, and resulted in the production of the best-known and most admirable of his designs. His first contribution appeared in the issue of August 7, a full-page illustration entitled Foreign Affairs of character studies from the neighbourhood of Leicester Square. His cartoons dealt at first mainly with social subjects, but gradually their method gained in power and their subjects became more distinctly political. In addition to his work for the weekly issue of Punch, Leech contributed largely to the Punch almanacks and pocket-books, from Once a Week between 1859 and 1862, to the Illustrated London News, where some of his largest and best sporting scenes appeared, and to innumerable novels and miscellaneous volumes besides. Condition: In quarter calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally very good and sound, smart spines, just a little rubbed. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and intermittently clean, some scattered spotting and the odd handling mark. Copperplate ink signatures to front blanks. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.
