        De vogelwereld. Handboek voor liefhebbers van kamer- en parkvogels. Met driehonderd afbeeldingen in chromolithographie.

      - Groningen, J. B. Wolters, 1886. Folio (36.8 x 27.3 cm). Two title pages, 274 [xvi, 156; (ii), 100] pp; 48 [26; 22] large, chromolithographed plates. Publisher's decorative full cloth with gilt and black embossing on the front board, gilt title on the front board and spine. Bevelled edges. Yellow endpapers.= Perhaps the most sumptuous of the late-19th-century Dutch bird books, with fine illustrations in full colour by J. Bungartz, G. Lübbert and C. t' Felt. The first part deals with wild birds, including parrots, etc., the second with poultry and other domesticated birds. The plates are very beautiful and therefore a complete copy, such as this one, has become very rare. Nissen errs in listing 27 plates for the first part; plate numbering jumps from 20 (the last of the exotic birds) to 22 (the start of the indigenous birds). Boards a bit soiled, edges, in particular spine ends, rubbed. Some light spotting throughout, thumbing in the lower margins, otherwise a very good copy. Nissen IVB, 686. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Social Problems

      New York: Henry George, 1886. Early printing. 342, 8 [ad] pp. 8vo. Publisher's brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt, covers ruled and stamped in blind. A very good copy with some pages partially adhering, a few closed marginal tears, some rubbing and minor wear to binding. Early printing. 342, 8 [ad] pp. 8vo. Inscribed to a future critic. Inscribed on the first blank: "To M.W. Meagher with the compliments of Henry George. Nov./86." An early printing of this work by the influential 19th century labor reformer, economist, and advocate of a blend of socialism and free trade that found a popular audience among progressives at the end of the 19th century. Three years later the inscribee, Michael William Meagher, would publish a scathing attack on George's ideas, titled "Alluring Absurdities: Fallacies of Henry George." In the present copy Meagher has marked a few dozen passages throughout with pencil lines in the margins, and beside a footnote on p 285, in which George clarifies his use of the term "ground rent," Meagher exclaims "What pedantry!" Meagher was a delegate to the Irish National League of America at its 1884 convention, and the founder of the National Debating Association at Cooper Union in New York. His critique of George received favorable reviews on its publication. "By means of his vigorous oratorical style and his direct and simple writing, George had popularized a doctrine that combined trenchant criticism of inequality in modern society with celebration of the potential contribution of technological development and individual endeavor to the social welfare. His ideas had powerful, if divergent, meanings for urban workers, Irish rural laborers, political foes of Britain's landed gentry, Catholic and Protestant preachers of a social gospel, women residing in New York's slums, businessmen aspiring to lift taxes from their own enterprises, and literary enthusiasts of global free trade. Adherents of the Single Tax remedy for urban squalor were to appear frequently in the ranks of reformers during the Progressive Era and beyond" (ANB).

        Pepper & Salt, or Seasoning for Young Folk

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1886. "One Must Have a Little Pinch of Seasoning in this Dull, Heavy Life of Ours" PYLE, Howard. Pepper & Salt, or Seasoning for Young Folk. New York: Harper and Brothers, 1886. First edition. Large quarto (11 1/8 x 8 1/2 inches; 282 x 215 mm.). [2] xiv, 122, [2, advertisements] pp. Pictorial title-page printed in red and black and seventy-five black and white illustrations. Publishers tan cloth pictorially decorated in red and black. A very fine copy. The tales and Poems are: The Skillful Huntsman; Claus and his wonderful staff; How Dame Margery Twist saw more than was good for her; Clever Peter and the two bottles; Hans Hecklemann's luck; Farmer Griggs's boggart; The bird in the linden tree and The apple of contentment. In Salt & Pepper, Howard Pyle writes in a 'Court-Jesterish' manner - meaning for them to be read out loud? and the superb black and white illustrations will keep the children amazed (and the adults too!) "?So, here I'll sit; and perhaps when you have been good children, and have learned your lessons or done your work, your mother will let you come and play a little while with me. I will always be ready and waiting for you here, and I will warrant your mother that I will do you no harm with anything that I may tell you. If I can only make you laugh and be merry for a little while, then my work will be well done, and I will be glad in the doing of it. And now give me my cap and bells again, for my wits are growing cold without them; and you will be pleased to reach me my bauble once more, for I love to have him by me. Will you be seated? And you, over there, seat the baby on the grass! Are you ready? Vey well; then I will tell you a story, and it shall be about "The skillful Huntsman." (Preface). Howard Pyle (March 5, 1853 - November 9, 1911) was an American illustrator and author, primarily of books for young people. BAL, 16381.

        Also sprach Zarathustra. Ein Buch für Alle und Keinen. In drei Theilen.

      Leipzig, Fritzsch, (1886) - [text recte 1883-84]. Lex 8vo. A magnificent copy, completely uncut in the original printed wrappers. Wrappers, also the spine almost completely intact, merely missing a few tiny pieces at extremities. Spine with three vertical "breaks", but still tight. Front wrappers loosening at hinge. Front wrapper with a couple of creases to lower right corner, strengthened from the verso at the bottom. A bookseller's stamp to inside of front wrapper: "Libreria Napoli. F. Furchheim". Housed in a custom-made marbled paper-slip-case, matching the colouring of the wrappers, with a gilt leather title-lable to spine. 114; (4), 103, (1); (4), 119, (1) pp. A truly splendid copy, in completely original state, of the first edition, title-issue, of Nietzsche's main work in which the concept of the "Superman" (or "Overman") in introduced. This is actually the first printings of these three parts, but the many remainders were sold and issued with a new title-page (with no year, but 1886). Only 45 copies of the exceedingly scarce privately printed fourth part were issued, the first trade edition of which is from 1892."These books present several historical problems but none more confusing than their publication dates. It is difficult to determine when - and in some cases, if - the books were ever released for public sale..." (Schaberg, p. 88). It is difficult to overestimate the impact of Nietzsche's magnum opus. With this work he realizes his ideal of the poet-philosopher. It is, at the same time, a towering literary achievement and the most profound inquiry in the key notions of his philosophy (the Superman, the eternal return of the same).Schaberg: 45.

        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. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 2-48. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 988. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 136 (rebound; lacking wrappers). Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3-143. Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 326. Bleiler (1978), p. 121. Reginald 08779. NCBEL III 1445. Topp, Victorian Yellowbacks & Paperbacks, 1849-1905, VII, p. 327. Touch of wear to lower spine end, dust soiling to cloth (to be expected on this light colored binding), a very good copy. This edition is as elusive as its British counterpart. (#130739)
