      1886. [an attractive 1st issue copy] being Memoirs of the Adventures of David Balfour in the Year 1751. [London:] Cassell & Company, 1886. 1 page undated ads plus 16 pp ads dated Apr 1886. Original green cloth. First Edition, first issue. In mid-18th Century Scotland, 17-year-old David Balfour is cheated out of his inheritance by a greedy uncle, who has him kidnapped and shipped to the Carolinas; with numerous challenges Balfour manages to get back to Scotland to fight to regain his property and his name. Stevenson began KIDNAPPED early in 1885 "partly as a lark, partly as a pot-boiler" (according to himself); he finished it in Spring 1886, having interrupted it part way through to write DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. He had accepted Sidney Colvin's suggestion to cut short the novel and leave the rest for a sequel (which he did, with DAVID BALFOUR / CATRIONA, in 1893).~This is a copy of the first issue (with "name his business" on p. 40, "nine o'clock" on p. 64, and "Long Islands" on p. 101). The ads also are in the first (April) state (some first-issue copies have the July ads that are present in the second issue). This copy's color is green, one of several used without priority.~This is a near-fine copy, with scarcely any soil or wear (a few tiny specks in the cloth, light foxing on a few leaves); the original endpapers are not cracked, and the gilt lettering on the spine remains rather bright. We seldom see the first issue in much better condition. Beinecke 378; Princeton 31 (copies 1-4).

        Methodus de conscribendis epistolis, ... secundum veram artis rationem tradita ...Cologne, heirs of Arnold Birckmann, 1570. Small 8vo (15.5 x 10.5 cm). Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment, traces of thong ties.

      Adams M76; Bibl. Belg. M89; CLC M65; Jacoby, Georg Macropedius (1886) 11b; USTC 675855; VD16 L404. The second Cologne edition of two of the most important sixteenth-century textbooks on the art of letter writing, by Macropedius (along with two smaller works) and Hegendorf, often published together. Georgius Macropedius or Joris van Lancvelt (1487-1558) devoted a lifetime of hard work to teaching in the schools of the Brethren of the Common Life. By 1510 he had begun teaching at Bois-le-Duc and his Asotus, the first of the Latin School plays for which he is best known today, was composed there. Mascropedius was ordained as a priest and went on to teach at Liege (ca. 1525-1529) and Utrecht (ca. 1529-1556). In addition to the twelve plays, he published Latin School songs and textbooks on grammar, dialectic and prosody (two of these smaller works are included in this edition).With an early owner's name struck through on the title-page, a couple marginal annotations and a few brief passages underlined. Ten lines of a sample letter concerning theology on P1v have been marked for cancellation and a blank slip pasted over them, but the text can still be read through the slip. With a tear along the fold of the title-page and a few small and mostly marginal worm holes, very slightly affecting the text in 2 quires, but otherwise in good condition, with the title-page slightly dirty and the corner of one leaf torn off, not affecting the text. It is nearly untrimmed, with an occasional deckle preserved. The binding is wrinkled, with a few small tears and lacking most of the ties.

        William Notman - Builder's Photograph of CPR Steam Locomotive No. 401 at Montreal New Shops in 1886

      Montreal, QC: W. Notman, 1886. Good. Notman photograph of CPR Steam Locomotive No. 401 [also renumbered as CPR 1300 & CPR 3100 after rebuilds] with tender, both freshly minted at the Montreal New Shops in 1886. Albumen photographic print (14 inches tall x 21 inches wide), mounted onto heavy card (22 inches tall x 28 inches wide), with "W. NOTMAN. PHOTO" stamped in blind onto card mount under photo at bottom right . The 401 (2-8-0) was built by Canadian Pacific Railway Company, New Shops, Montreal, Quebec, September 1886. The builder's plate "1048" is also stamped with "Montreal 1886", the side running light is also painted with "401". It was scrapped March 1922 after 35 years and 6 months of service. Ref. CPRsteam dot org. Image and card mount with fading and toning, two large vertical tone lines from cedar backing boards used in original framing, framer's notes in pencil and more prominent toning verso. An undocumented Builder's Photo, with no record of this Notman CPR 401 image found in any current online reference, nor in the current database at the Notman Photographic Archives, nor in their old database, nor in their old paper indexes housed in the McCord Museum at McGill University, the primary depository for the Notman fonds. Most certainly an image taken and mounted by the Notman Studio (card mount blind stamped under photo at bottom right "W. NOTMAN. PHOTO") and possibly, by W. Notman himself, for as Stanley G. Triggs notes in Dictionary of Canadian Biography "Notman's personal authorship of photographs produced by his studio is rarely documented, but whenever it is the same style is evident, characterized by simplicity and economy, tending to starkness in some cases and even to abstraction in others. Notman had the ability to extract the essence of his subject through his choice of viewpoint, light, and line, and he was able simultaneously to describe it accurately and to provoke in the viewer an emotional response to it. ... On the other hand, because Notman photographs also accented realism and authenticity of dress or equipment, they constitute a valuable social record." in addition, with regards to the number of other potential photographers in his employ at the time "... [staff] including photographers and painters, their apprentices and assistants, bookkeepers and clerks, receptionists and secretaries, dressing-room attendants, and printing, dark-room, and finishing personnel.... reached a low of 25 in 1886 before climbing back to 38 by 1892." i.e. operating with just 25 employees only 2 years prior to the date of this image and quite possibly, increasing the likelihood that this image may have been taken by W. Notman. An interesting photograph, documenting the advances of the industrial age by the best and "... the first Canadian photographer with an international reputation." Nora Hague.

        Life of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Life of Longfellow) with Extracts from his Journals and Correspondence (Large Paper edition - 3 volume set)

      Ticknor and Company, Boston, MA 1886 - B&W Illustrations; SIGNED EDITION. This is the Large Paper Edition, limited to 300 copies, twenty-five of which are reserved for England. This copy is #5 - for America. Three Volume Set. This set includes, tippedth-in three handwritten and signed letters by Samuel Longfellow to the publisher (Ticknor) regarding possible changes to be made for either an updated edition or a new edition of the book. It is likely that this set was the property of the publisher as a working copy. The set is in overall Very Good+ condition and was likely issued without dust jackets. The covers of the books have some edge wear and rubbing along with some ground-in dirt. Volume two has had the front spine joint professionally repaired where it had cracked. The text pages are clean and bright. The foredge and bottom edges of the book are untrimmed. The front inner hinge of Vol. One is cracked. The inner hinge of vol. Two has been repaired. Two of the letters have been tipped-in and one letter and a lithograph portrait of H. W. Longfellow have been laid-in. This is a unique copy which shows the true effort put into the detail (almost to the point of nitpicking) of a book so lovingly compiled. Samuel Longfellow was the younger brother of H. W. Longfellow and a clergyman and hymn writer in his own right. "Samuel Longfellow was born June 18, 1819, in Portland, Maine, the last of eight children of Stephen and Zilpah (Wadsworth) Longfellow. His older brother was the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. He attended Harvard College and graduated in 1839 ranked eighth in a class of 61. He went on to study at Harvard Divinity School, where his classmates included Thomas Wentworth Higginson and Samuel Johnson, with whom he would later collaborate in his hymn writing. He is considered part of the second-generation of transcendentalists; after becoming a Unitarian pastor, he adapted the transcendental philosophy he had encountered in divinity school into his hymns and sermons. Longfellow served as a pastor in Fall River, Massachusetts (1848) , Brooklyn's Second Unitarian Church (1853) , and Germantown, Pennsylvania (1878-1882). After his older brother's death, Longfellow published a two-volume biography of him in 1886. He wrote the book while living at his brother's former home, Craigie House in Cambridge, Massachusetts." ; Signed by Editor [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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).

        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).

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.
