        Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1887. Fifty-Seventh Thousand. Octavo. Original red cloth, title to spine gilt, triple gilt rules to covers, gilt roundels with "Alice" motifs to covers, black coated endpapers, all edges gilt. Housed in a custom red quarter morocco and buff cloth solander box. Frontispiece with tissue-guard and 49 illustrations by John Tenniel. Spine rolled, some minor bubbling to cloth, covers lightly finger-marked, shallow nick to head of rear panel, hinges split, fore edge of front free endpaper nicked, text block shaken. Third edition, presentation copy to the child actress who appeared in the first professional stage performance of "Alice". Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Presented to Georgina Martin by Lewis Carroll as a memento of her having taken part in the Dream­Play 'Alice in Wonderland' written by H. Savile Clarke and first produced Christmas, 1886." Following a few amateur stage versions of Alice, Dodgson was convinced that his story had theatrical possibilities and he tried unsuccessfully to engage Arthur Sullivan to write some songs for a musical production in 1877. "Ten years passed, and Charles was still looking for an appropriate way of mounting Alice in the West End. Then, on August 28, 1886, he heard from Henry Savile Clarke, playwright, drama critic, and newspaper editor, requesting permission to make an operetta of the Alice books" (Cohen, p. 435). After agreeing to a few of Dodgson's conditions (including insisting that Clarke not give any publicity to his real name), permission was granted and Alice in Wonderland, "A Musical Dream Play, in Two Acts, for Children and Others," opened on 23 December 1886 at the Prince of Wales Theatre. Dodgson's twelve year-old friend Phoebe Carlo was cast in the lead role of Alice, and the play was both a theatrical and critical success. Georgina Martin (b. 1876) and Edith Martin (b. 1880) were the two youngest children of David Martin (b. 1839), a domestic servant and groom, and his wife, Laura (b. 1842), of 15 Castle Street East, Marylebone, London. Dodgson presented both children with copies of Alice for performing in the Alice in Wonderland play (Diaries, Vol. 8, note 629). [Laid-in:] Christmas Greetings [from a Fairy to a Child].

        Capital: Critical Analysis of Capitalist Production. Translated from the Third German Edition, by Samuel Moore and Edward Aveling and Edited by Frederick Engels

      London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co., 1887. First English edition. Two volumes. 8vo. xxxii, 364; (ii), 365-816 pp. Original American state binding of dark green cloth, gilt titled to the spines with the name of Sonnenschein's American agent, J. Bordollo of New York, at the feet, the contemporary booksellers' ticket of Koelling, Klappenbach & Kenkel of Chicago to the corners of the front pastedowns and an early pencilled ownership inscription of a Chas. Cook to the front free endpapers. Both volumes neatly recased, a very small puncture to the head of the upper joint of volume I though not causing any stress on the binding, an excellent set. The first volume of Karl Marx's groundbreaking work was published in German in 1867 with a second edition in 1873. The author died before the third edition could be issued with Engels stepping in to bring it to completion in 1883 using Marx's notes for his extensive revisions for the earlier first French edition. Engels compiled and edited Volumes II and III from Marx's papers and these appeared in 1885 and 1894. In this period Engels was also able to oversee this translation of the first part, its first appearance in the English language. The translation was carried out by Moore, well connected in British socialist circles, he translated the Communist Manisfesto a year later under Engels editorship. He was ably assisted by Aveling - the partner of Eleanor Marx, the youngest daughter of the author, who was also enlisted to check the quotations used in the work. Printing and the Mind of Man, 359.

        Papers Literary, Scientific, &c.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1887. Edited by Sidney Colvin and J. A. Ewing. With a Memoir by Robert Louis Stevenson. 2 volumes, octavo. Original dark red cloth, gilt lettered spines, brown coated endpapers. Autotype portrait frontispiece of Jenkin from a photograph by John Moffat (with tissue guard), 6 autotype plates of portraits, 54 diagrams in the text (8 folding). Contemporary ownership inscription of "W. H. Vardon" at head of volume I title page; spines sunned, a few marks to covers and spines, abrasion at head of back cover of volume II, bindings a little shaken (but inner joints not split), nevertheless a good set with the publisher's 24pp. catalogue at the end of volume II dated July 1887. First edition of these collected papers of the economist, pioneer of electrical engineering and the telegraph, Fleeming Jenkin (1883-1885), with a memoir by Robert Louis Stevenson, who had been an engineering student under Jenkin at Edinburgh University. The works are divided into six sections reflecting Jenkin's versatility: Literature and Drama, Speculative Science, Political Economy, Scientific and Technical Education, Applied Science, Abstracts of Fleeming Jenkin's Scientific Papers, and concluding with a list of the thirty-five British patents Jenkins filed for during his lifetime. Jenkin also wrote several influential papers on economics, including "The graphic representation of the laws of supply and demand, and their application to labour", "On the principles which regulate the incidence of taxes", and "Trade unions: how far legitimate?", initially published in the North British Review in 1868, which "began his distinguished five-paper contribution to political economy. He advanced modern wage theory and introduced the graphical method into British economic literature. Observing that contemporary economists failed to acknowledge Jenkin's priority, J. A. Schumpeter (in 1954) summarized Jenkin as 'an economist of major importance, whose main papers... form an obvious stepping stone between J. S. Mill and [Alfred] Marshall'" (ODNB).

        Applicazioni geometriche del calcolo infinitesimale

      Fr.lli Bocca, Torino 1887 - In 8, pp. XII + 334 + (1) + (1) di errata con ill. n.t. Legatura in mz. pl. coeva. Edizione originale di questo importante studio sulÂcalcolo infinitesimaleÂdi Giuseppe Peano (Spinetta di Cuneo, 1858-Torino, 1932), matematico e logico, che ha avuto fama anche per le sue proposte da linguista. Peano utilizza nei suoi studi il calcolo vettoriale, allora poco in uso. Proprio grazie a Peano e alla sua scuola questo tipo di calcolo si diffonde nell'ambiente matematico internazionale. Nel 1890 diventa professore di calcolo infinitesimale, ma non disdegna di parlare di logica ai suoi studenti. I cinque assiomi che propone (gli 'assiomi di Peano') diventano capisaldi per la costruzione dell'aritmetica come sistema logico. In geometria la 'curva di Peano' e' invece una curva continua non derivabile in alcun punto: in pratica costituisce uno dei primi esempi di frattale. Nell'ultima edizione del Formulario matematico, nel 1908, propone una nuova 'lingua perfetta', chiamata latino sine flexione. Si tratta di una lingua artificiale, semplificazione del latino, che non ottiene grande successo pratico. Anzi, avendo deciso di utilizzare questa lingua anche a lezione, ottiene la protesta dei suoi stessi studenti che non conoscendola, non la comprendono. ITA

        BUTTON'S INN

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1887. C. 1886 by W. H. Busbey, also c. 1887 by E. K. Tourgee. Preface dated 1887. Deep blue cloth with gilt lettering and decoration. Patterned endpapers. 418 pages. Spine rolled, some minor spotting, slight wear. Pages near fine. This is a most unusual copy, in that the half-title page bears, in faded ink, "Autograph Edition/No. 222." Furthermore, there are nine illustrations, throughout the book, done in ink and brush, illustrating the story, some signed "E. Tourgee." (They are beautifully done, as well, rather in the style of Howard Chandler Christy.) They are painted on the margins, overlapping the type. We have no idea how many copies were done this way, but one wouldn't think too many. Probably at least 222 have the ink inscription on the first blank after the front free endpaper, "Albion W. Tourgee/ Mayville- on-Chautauqua/Sept. 15, 1894," but how many with the beautiful illustrations? The story is set at and near the old Button's Inn which is still in existence, having been moved to a new location, "up the hill" in Westfield, New York.. Inscribed and Signed By Author. Hardcover. Good - Plus/No Jacket. Illus. by Albion Tourgee.

Major revisions were made again in 1897 for a new electrotype setting, used for both the main edition and People's edition. The first printing of an important edition. Scarce.
