First edition of Hardy's first collection of short stories, one of only 634 copies bound by the publishers thus, from total print run of 750. The five stories in the collection, which includes "The Withered Arm", were previously published in serial form. "With his fatalistic sensibility, ghostly atmosphere, and unparalleled sense of doom and gloom, Hardy was a natural for horror stories... dark irony, a definitive characteristic of modern supernatural horror, is manipulated more masterfully by Hardy than perhaps by any other English writer" (Tymn, p. 245). This set has a contemporary cabinet photograph of Hardy loosely inserted in volume I, labelled in manuscript and twice stamped "dead" on the verso.

JAMES, F. L.
London: George Philip & Son, , 1888. Octavo. Original dark olive cloth, title gilt to spine, bevelled boards, brown surface-paper endpapers. Hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece heightened with gum arabic and 9 other similar plates, 9 tinted photogravure plates, 4 plain botanical lithographs, numerous tinted vignettes in the text, folding map in an end-pocket. This copy with the ownership inscription of Abel Chapman, the "prolific sporting author", dated in the year of publication, verso of the front free endpaper. Minimal shelf-wear, offset from one of the botanical plates, but overall a truly superior copy of a book often found in calamitous condition. First edition. "While primarily a work of exploration and adventure in Somaliland, the author does partake in a few hunts for kudu, lion, and assorted antelope near the River Webbe. Once while stalking rhinoceros, he came within a few feet of one but was unable to see it due to the heavy growth of mimosa before it made its escape. The coloured plates of birds in the more scarce first issue are especially handsome. James was killed by an elephant in west Africa in 1890" (Czech). While not in the red pictorial cloth, all other signs are that this is a first issue; the colouring of the plates is particularly skilful. Czech p.83; Nissen BBI 2088 [Attributes: First Edition]

(SHIELDS, Henry.) MEIKLE, James.
London: Oatts & Rungman,, 1888. Folio. Attractively bound in recent green half morocco retaining the original green boards, titles and illustration to front board gilt. 31 mounted chromolithographic plates. A few marks to boards, and occasional minor foxing to some plates and text pages, but overall a very good copy of this rare work with fine colour plates. First and only edition. The Royal Clyde Yacht Club was the biggest in Britain at the end of the nineteenth century, larger even than the Solent Yacht Club, and Clyde yachts were world-famous as pioneers of the relatively new sport of yacht racing. This book reproduces in chromolithography a series of watercolours by Henry Shields RBA (1859-1935) showing famous yachts or "white wings", mostly built 1880-87, with four boats built prior to 1880 included as notable precursors of the Clyde yacht boatbuilding style. Three of them (the "Genesta," "Galatea," and "Thistle") had made attempts to win the America's Cup.

Edouard Dujardin
Paris: 1888. Edouard DUJARDIN, Les Lauriers sont coupés, avec un portrait de l'auteur gravé à l'eau-forte par Jacques-Émile Blanche, Paris, Librairie de la Revue Indépendante, 1888, 139 p., broché, 19x13cm. Édition originale très recherchée de ce roman dans lequel apparait pour la première fois le procédé du monologue intérieur dont James Joyce se réclamera ouvertement pour la construction du soliloque de Molly Bloom à la fin d'Ulysse, en 1918, et qu'Edouard Dujardin théorisera dans son ouvrage Le monologue intérieur, son apparition, ses origines, sa place dans l'oeuvre de James Joyce et dans le roman contemporain, en 1931. "Lisez Les Lauriers sont coupés" conseilla James Joyce à Valéry Larbaud en 1920. Un des 400 exemplaires numérotés à la main sur papier vélin anglais mécanique (après 20 ex. sur vélin français à la cuve). Ici le n°249. Correction manuscrite d'une coquille de la main d'Edouard Dujardin, au chapitre V, en marge de la page 62, exactement comme dans l'exemplaire conservé à la Bibliothèque Nationale de France (numérisé sur gallica). La Revue Indépendante publia initialement ce bref roman sans réelle intrigue en quatre livraisons, durant l'été 1887, avant de le faire paraitre en volume l'année suivante, enrichi du beau frontispice de Jacques-Emile Blanche (1861-1942) dont c'est ici, à notre connaissance, le premier portrait réalisé pour une oeuvre littéraire. Les intrigues amoureuses du personnage principal, Daniel Prince, accessoirement amouraché d'une comédienne, ne sont qu'un prétexte pour le suivre, de six heures du soir à minuit, dans ses réflexions les pl … [Click Below for Full Description]

1888. Frammento cartaceo in formato cm.22,7x9. Si tratta di un foglio di normale carta da lettere, tagliato a metà in senso verticale, e quindi ripiegato su quattro facciate, ciascuna in formato cm.11,3x9. Su una di queste compare, sotto il titolo "Inno alla Pace" (di altra grafia) la notazione autografa del Maestro su sei righe: "Nulla posso fare …. / Son troppo vecchio …../ auguro solo il più gran / successo alla santa idea ed / al suo libro". Segue la firma "G.Verdi" e la data "Genova, 22 dicembre 1888". Nella facciata opposta compaiono alcuni versi a matita di mano ignota, e sul retro solo gli incipit, causa il taglio della carta, dei versi dell'"Inno alla Pace". Frammento dunque confuso, ma lo scritto di Verdi è ben chiaro e nitido. Un ignoto interlocutore sembra dunque aver chiesto all'anziano musicista un aiuto, o un suggerimento, o forse un intervento maggiore, per questo "Inno alla Pace", invito che Verdi declina in maniera molto chiara. E' allegata una busta, non viaggiata, dove compare il nome di un destinatario: la grafia è sicuramente verdiana, ma il nome non è ben comprensibile, qualcosa del tipo "Dot. Egisto Carrara". Anche il luogo di destinazione non è comprensibile. Codice libreria 117650.

A business letter making practical arrangements for the Council's National Executive Session on April 2-4, following the convention, it is accompanied by the transmittal envelope and two enclosed flyers for special railroad rates available to eastern and to southern and central delegates respectively, each annotated in orange pencil.On the fortieth anniversary of the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention that marked the beginning of the American woman suffrage movement, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony carried the movement across borders by founding the International Council of Women in 1888. An umbrella organization under which national suffrage organizations could convene, its first meeting was a major opportunity for U.S. activists to forge alliances and coordinate strategies with women across Europe. Across both continents, women were loudly demanding their rights. To Stanton and Anthony, four decades into the fight, it was time to harness this energy at home and abroad.Sarah Stoddard Eddy, to whom Anthony writes, was a chaplain in addition to leading the New England Women's Club, the Women's Educational & Industrial Union, … [Click Below for Full Description]

TEXAS LAND AND CATTLE COMPANY]
Written By John Tod, 1888 - 1889., Corpus Christi. SERIES OF LETTERS WRITTEN BY CAPTAIN JOHN TOD TO H. E. HOOVER 1888-1889. 18 letters, a copy of a telegram plus 3 other letters not to Hoover. ALS"s. Fine grouping. When Richard King and Mifflin Kenedy dissolved their partnership in 1867, Kenedy took over the Laureles Ranch, 22 miles south of Corpus Christi. The ranch was then sold to The Texas Land and Cattle Company, Limited of Dundee, Scotland for $1,100,000. Captain John Tod of Edinburgh, Scotland was appointed manager of the Laureles Ranch and of other company properties in Texas. Tod in 1900 was directed to sell the Laureles Ranch and over a period of six years the property passed to Mrs. Henrietta M. King. The Laureles Ranch is now the largest division on the King Ranch. This series of letters were written to H.E. Hoover, the company attorney in Canadian, Texas between November 1898 and March, 1899, relative to lands owned by the Texas Land and Cattle Company in the Panhandle region of Texas and would indicate that the Texas Land and Cattle Company had begun to dissolve their holdings in Texas before the sale of the Laureles Ranch. Tod was a crusty character and was quite direct. He wrote Hoover on December 31, 1898 stating with regards to erecting fences on a portion of the company's property: "Take all lawful precautions, and use all lawful means, and oppose unlawful force (if used) with lawful force. The thing must be done." Very good, legible copies. [Attributes: First Edition]

This attractive woodblock-printed book concerns animals (Vol. 1 illustrated the flora). Based on the original drawings by the Japanese artist Kondo Ariyoshi (active c. 1830-1880), which were later owned by Shibakawa Matauemon of Osaka, who invited a contemporary artist, Nambara Keisho (active c.1880) to prepare the art collection for reproduction and to provide supplementary images and a preface to the work. Shibakawa also invited Fujisawa Nangaku (1842-1920), a noted Confucian scholar to provide an additional preface in which he praises both the quality of the brush work and accuracy of the depictions. Full-colour images depict the various animals, together with some outline studies in ink. The work includes images of birds, bats, turtles, crustaceans, fish and insects. Accompanying inscriptions in Japanese name the animal and indicate the date that the picture was drawn. This work is presented in a traditional form of Japanese publishing, an E-hon, using woodblock prints, stitched into folded pages. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Librairie de la revue indépendante, 1888.

Édition originale très recherchée de ce roman dans lequel apparait pour la première fois le procédé du monologue intérieur dont James Joyce se réclamera ouvertement pour la construction du soliloque de Molly Bloom à la fin d'Ulysse, en 1918, et qu'Edouard Dujardin théorisera dans son ouvrage Le monologue intérieur, son apparition, ses origines, sa place dans l'oeuvre de James Joyce et dans le roman contemporain, en 1931. "Lisez Les Lauriers sont coupés" conseilla James Joyce à Valéry Larbaud en 1920. Un des 400 exemplaires numérotés à la main sur papier vélin anglais mécanique (après 20 ex. sur vélin français à la cuve). Ici le n°249. Correction manuscrite d'une coquille de la main d'Edouard Dujardin, au chapitre V, en marge de la page 62, exactement comme dans l'exemplaire conservé à la Bibliothèque Nationale de France (numérisé sur gallica). La Revue Indépendante publia initialement ce bref roman sans réelle intrigue en quatre livraisons, durant l'été 1887, avant de le faire paraitre en volume l'année suivante, enrichi du beau frontispice de Jacques-Emile Blanche (1861-1942) dont c'est ici, à notre connaissance, le premier portrait réalisé pour une oeuvre littéraire. Les intrigues amoureuses du personnage principal, Daniel Prince, accessoirement amouraché d'une comédienne, ne sont qu'un prétexte pour le suivre, de six heures du soir à minui … [Click Below for Full Description]
