        Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

      Longmans, Green and Co, London 1886 - [8] [1] pp 2-141 [1] A first edition second impression of Stevenson's masterly novella of split personalities, the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. The book is bound in the original wrapper printed in red and blue with the correct date - 1886. The backstrip and lower wrapper have been sympathetically renewed. The upper wrapper is discoloured, similarly the half title with some foxing through the text. The final leaf of advertisement has been remargined close to the gutter. A few pages with turned corners, usually at the bottom of the page, one with a small triangle of paper missing from the corner. Like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Stevenson's novel has become part of modern mythology. Issued in paper and cloth bound copies it sold well from first publication and remains in print to this day.

        The Woman Suffrage Cook Book, Contaning [sic] Thoroughly Tested and Reliable Recipes for Cooking, Directions for the Care of the Sick, and Practical Suggestions, Contributed Especially For This Work

      Boston: (C.H. Simonds & Co., Printers), 1886. First edition of this collection of American recipes, sponsored by the Women's Suffrage Association of Massachusetts, sold at an 1886 Boston women's suffrage fair to raise funds for the movement. Facing fears that the vote would lead women to neglect their duties at home, this charity cookbook offered a balance between potentially unnerving political activism and reassuring domesticity. Contributions include "Coraline Cake" from Alice Bunker Stockham, an obstetrician and gynecologist who was the fifth woman to become a doctor in America; terrapin soup from Anna Ella Carroll, a political adviser to Lincoln during the Civil War; and household tips from the likes of Lucy Stone, Julia Ward Howe, and Frances Willard. The book concludes with a collection of "eminent opinions on woman suffrage" from Plato, Abraham Lincoln, John Stuart Mill, William Lloyd Garrison, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Clara Barton: "When you were weak and I was strong, I toiled for you. Now you are strong and I am weak. . . . I ask the ballot for myself and my sex. As I stood by you, I pray you stand by me and mine." OCLC lists eight copies. A scarce artifact of American women's activism in the nineteenth century. Single volume measuring 5 x 7.25 inches, pp. [2], [1], xiv, 149, [2]. Original half red cloth over printed paper boards, title and ornamental wheat motif printed in black and red on front board, contemporary ads printed on endpapers and lower board, single-page ads throughout text. 1888 pencil ownership inscription. Binding worn, hinges split but holding, closed tear to page 105, occasional light stains in text.

        Pearls and Pearling Life.

      George Bell 1886 - FIRST EDITION, 9 chromolithographed and tinted lithographed plates, one folding lithographed map, illustrations, contemporary tree calf gilt, 8vo, George Bell, 1886 Streeter was a very successful London jeweller. An international dealer and something of a buccaneer. Streeter outfitted his own pearling schooner, the Shree-Pas-Sair and he, himself sailed on her and engaged in pearling in the Sulu Archipelago in the early 1880s. This is the same Streeter who put together the syndicate that successfully bid against the Rothschild's to lease the ruby mines of Mogok after the British conquest of upper Burma in 1855. What is particularly interesting is Streeter's first person account of the Sulu islands and of the amusing adventures of his agent during Streeter's attempt to corner the Ceylon market by buying the entire output of shell, from a harvest off the N. W. coast of Ceylon in 1880. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

It was through his philanthropy that Grace became mayor of New York City. A well-publicized donation of $40,000 in supplies for famine-struck Ireland made him a popular public figure and he won the 1880 election without any political experience. By 1884, his tough stance against corruption had earned him a reputation as a reformer and succeeded in winning him a second term. Grace was a self-made multi-millionaire and remained an avid book collector right up until his death. Bookplate.Joints slightly tender. A lovely copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Arizona Champion Newspaper October 16, 1886

      Flagstaff, Arizona 1886 - A scarce early issue of the Arizona Champion from October 16, 1886. Tears up to two inches, chips, penciled margin notes, and margin dampstains. Leaves are separated. One editorial discusses how Geronimo has been more popular since his surrender than before it, with another report from a former governor stating that General Miles' conditional surrender was best for peace. There is a notice from early Grand Canyon tourist guide and developer John Hance stating his claim to land at Grand Canyon. Another column answers the question "Are Cowboys Degenerating?", and one article argues that Flagstaff really needs a bank. Two other columns feature the illustrated brands and a reward proclamation for the Mogollon Live Stock Protective Association, with the brands of many well-known early Flagstaff ranchers. A timetable of the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad, a company instrumental in the land deals and settlement of northern Arizona, is on the front page. The Arizona Champion was published in Flagstaff from 1884-1891, when it became the Coconino Sun. The paper recorded much on northern Arizona's early ranching industry and development. ; 23 1/2" x 17 1/4"; 4 pp

        Two Autograph Letters Signed, to "my dear Alice" [Jackson]

      1886. Four pages each, Hampstead Heath (London) 1886 and Maryhill (Glasgow) [1892]. (Mrs.) Alice Jackson, of Kirkbuddo near Forfar, Angus, Scotland, was a friend of the Scottish fantasy novelist George Macdonald; both letters begin "My dear Alice".~The first letter is on mourning stationery of "Cedar Lawn, Hampstead Heath N.W." and is dated by hand "Aug. 19, 1886." It reads:~You see I do not like to forget old times, and so acknowledge a victory of the old bald man with the scythe [Father Time?] -- therefore call you by the old name. It was I fear rather a rude thing to send that packet without a letter, but I was greatly occupied, and let it go without its chaperon. It ought to have been sent to you long before. Since then I have been to see my mother and uncle. They are indeed both wonderfully well. I wish I could see them often, but even next Monday we start again for Bordighera [on the Italian Riviera]. You may be sure if we were near you we should be very glad to go & see you. If my wife were by me she would send her love. Please remember me most kindly to Dr. Jackson. You will surely be coming to the Riviera some day? Pardon haste, & believe me yours affectionately, George MacDonald".~The second letter is on stationery of "Killermont, Maryhill" and is dated "Glasgow Sunday night" but with the accompanying envelope (addressed to "Mrs. Jackson | Kirkbuddo | near Forfar") postmarked Aberdeen Feb. 19, 1892 and again on the back Forfar Feb. 20. This letter reads:~I still may call you so [My dear Alice] -- may I not? It is very kind of you to want me to come to you, but I do not see how I am to do it, for I am so much occupied. I preached in Glasgow this morning. Tomorrow & Tuesday I lecture here, Wednesday at Dundee, Thursday at Stirling, and Friday at Aberdeen. Then come Peterhead, Banff, Inverness, Huntly next week, and Sunday at Bristol. I had given the arrangement of my lectures into the hands of Mr Smith the bookseller at Aberdeen, and he did not favour the idea of Forfar [near Alice]. But if anyone there would take the thing up, I would try to come to you next year, if I come again so far north, for then, I suppose, I might have the pleasure of being your guest. This time I fear it cannot be managed, without more fatigue than I ought to encounter while having to work. From now till the end of October I have every night occupied, or at most two, more likely only one, disengaged -- Sundays also are occupied. My wife is not with me, nor one of my people. You see I am allowed to go about alone now, I am so much better. I have been working as hard as ever in my life -- with the proofs of four books sometimes on my table at once. I mention this as some excuse for not having written to you, as I fear you think I ought to have done. But at the time it did not seem imperative, and so, in the much that must be done, I let it pass. Thanking you again for your kind letter, I am always yours affectionately George MacDonald.~Both letters are in fine condition, folded when mailed.

        tissé d'après les Enluminures des Manuscrits du XIVe au XVIe Siècle

      Four full-page illus. & each page within a decorative border, all taken from early illuminated MSS. 50 pages. Small 4to, orig. Jansenist-style binding of morocco by J. Kauffmann-Petit & Maillard, doublures of blue morocco richly gilt & inlaid to a retrospective Renaissance motif consisting of green, brown, & blue morocco interlocking strap-work, five raised bands on spine, top & bottom edges gilt. Lyon: [A. Henry for A. Roux], 1886-88. This is one of the true marvels of nineteenth-century technology in the service of the "Book Arts," and absolutely must be seen to be fully appreciated. It is a spectacular neo-Gothic Book of Prayers, made of silvery-grey and black silk thread, woven together by means of the Jacquard automated loom method, the results being accurate to within one-tenth of a millimeter. There is a strange and wondrous dimensionality in these pages, which without exaggeration can be said to shimmer. The book also represents an important technical innovation: hundreds of thousands of punched cards were employed as automated weaving instructions, conveyed to an array of mechanized looms. It took two years of programming and weaving to create approximately 60 copies. At the time of its invention, in 1801, the Jacquard loom was the most complex programmable machine in existence. The incredible potential of the "Operations / Variables" punched card system, with its binary data and modern "Input / Output / Storage" capabilities, was seized upon by English visionary Charles Babbage, who integrated the process into his theoretical "Analytical Engine." James Essinger has argued convincingly that the Jacquard loom was pivotal in the in the development of computer science (see Jacquard's Web: How a Hand-loom led to the Birth of the Information Age, 2004). With uncanny prescience, the data input mechanisms and intricate algorithms that created the present volume prefigure modern computer automation and computer programming: input consisting of complex instructions conveyed to the mechanical looms by means of punched cards; output in the form preconceived patterns; and memory in which the instructions can be stored and subsequently recovered. Lillian Randall determined that the "illuminations" in the present Prayer Book actually came from a single source, namely a late 19th-century monograph published by Gruel and Engelmann: Imitation de Jésus-Christ, which contained reproductions of a variety of illuminated manuscripts from the 14th through the 16th-century. Our copy is in a perfect state of preservation and in an unusually elaborate version of the standard binding. Preserved in the original velvet-lined box. ? For a detailed account of the technical intricacies see: Paul Marais, "Livre de Prières tissé" in the Bulletin du Bibliophile (1889), pp. 163-66. Bowden, Faster than Thought: The Invention of Perforated Cards by M. Jacquard (London: 1953), pp. 23, 350-51, & 379-80. Michael Laird in The World from Here. Treasures of the Great Libraries of Los Angeles (edited by C. Burlingham & B. Whiteman, 2001), 63-"Despite the fact that this rare volume is not a printed book, it is of singular interest in that it was completely woven with silver and black silk thread. It also represents an extremely early book production involving automation and programming...The book was manufactured on silk looms that were programmed using the punched-card system developed by Joseph-Marie Jacquard (1752-1834). Several hundred thousand cards were required to program this curious magnum opus (the actual figure is not known, but estimates range from 106,000 to 500,000). After fifty failed attempts, it took two years to weave approximately sixty copies…It will be observed that the weave in the present volume is almost microscopic (it is exactly four hundred weft threads for every 2.5 centimeters [approximately one inch])…The movement of the machine was limited to one tenth of a millimeter, the result being an extremely precise piece of bookmaking, which, on account of the material used, truly gleams. It is noteworthy that Jacquard's looms, only slightly modified, are still in use today, producing some of the world's finest fabric for furniture. The punched instructional cards utilized by Jacquard's weaving machinery served as the primary inspiration for the famous 'Analytical Engine' conceived by Charles Babbage (1791-1871)…The present volume may represent the first, and probably the only, successful attempt at weaving a book.".

        PHANTOM LOVER: A FANTASTIC STORY .

      Roberts Brothers, Boston 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.

        Lettre autographe signée (à Marie Froment) / Joint : lettre autographe signée de Frédéric Masson à Barbey d'Aurevilly

      - Lettre autographe signée, Mercredi, à Mlle Marie Froment, 1 page in-8 à l’encre rouge, à la devise gravée Never More. On joint une lettre autographe signée de Frédéric Masson à Barbey d’Aurevilly, 7 avril 1886 (1 page et demie in-8 à en-tête de Goupil et la revue Les Lettres et les Arts). « Mercredi, Mademoiselle Marie Froment, La forme la plus discrète que vous avez cherchée, heureusement sans la trouver, ne vaut pas un peu de naïveté, et vos vingt brouillons valent vingt fois mieux qu’un autographe. C’est pour cela, Mademoiselle, que je vous envoie celui-ci. Jules Barbey d’Aurevilly Et non pas Barbet s’il vous plait ». Dans sa lettre Frédéric Masson témoigne à Barbey d’Aurevilly son admiration, et évoque la publication de ses « beaux vers » dans la revue : « Je voudrais bien que Rops que j’ai choisi pour les illustrer se pressât quelque peu. Cet homme de génie est rebelle aux Lettres »
