Ottawa: Sandford Fleming, 1888. 1st Edition. No binding. Autograph letter signed to Sir Frederick Young, Secretary of the Royal Colonial Institute . Four pages, folded to 5 x 8 inches. Dated Ottawa 10th March 1888. To Sir Frederick Young, secretary of the Royal Colonial Institute. Offering congratulations on his recognition by the Queen and congratulations on being awarded a knighthood, and his work on unifying the Dominions. Fleming defacto indicates his full support for the British Empire, imperialism and uniting the Empire. Sir Frederick Young (1817-1913), K.C.M.G., was born on 21 June 1817 in Limehouse, London, the son of George Frederick Young, M.P. He was educated in Homerton before becoming a merchant in London. In 1869 he began an association with the Royal Colonial Institute that was to last for the rest of his life and saw him become the Institute's Vice-President and Honorary Secretary. He was awarded in 1888 with his K.C.M.G. status. Young served as a J.P. and Deputy-Lieutenant. He promoted the permanent union of the colonies with the Mother Country and published works on imperial federation and the empire.

Boston, MA: Christian Science Publishing Society, 1888. For your consideration is a preeminent collection of bound volumes of the Christian Science Sentinel and Christian Science Journal, including Volume 1 of the Sentinel and copies of both periodicals from the WWII years. There are over 275 volumes total (150+ volumes of Sentinel and 125+ volumes of the Journal) spanning the years 1888-2010. It is to be assumed all volumes are at least in good to very good condition, unless otherwise noted. Not every book was looked at at the volume level and inspected individually. Several volumes from the 1900s-1920s are in need of re-binding. All are otherwise complete and intact with little to no markings in the text. See all photos for more detail.For many years January-December of each periodical was bound in one volume. During later years, the period was split into two volumes. Inmost cases, the entire run for each year is included. Please inquire for more photos if they are needed. Due to the size and weight of the collection, local pick up in Hartford, Connecticut must be arranged. A 30 day handling time may be necessary medical treatments will keep me away from home over much of the Fall and Winter. Included in this purchase are the following volumes of the Sentinel (in no particular order): Volume 1: 1898 (tearing and yellowing of pages, old repairs with scotch tape) Volumes 109-112 (parts 1-2) 2007-2010 Volume 35, 1932 Volumes 28-30, 1925-1928 Volume 31, 33, 34; 1928-1932 Volumes 38-39, 1935-1937 Volumes 79-84, 1977-1982 Volume 45 (1943) Volumes 46-48 (1944-1946) Volumes 36-37 … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Happy Prince and Other Tales is a collection of fairy tales and fables, including "The Happy Prince," "The Nightingale and the Rose," "The Selfish Giant," "The Devoted Friend," and "The Remarkable Rocket."

James A.H. Murray
London: Oxford: At the Clarendon Press, 1888. These hardcover books are in good condition, clean and unmarked throughout. The leather covers have some scuffing, some bumping around the corners and top and bottom of spine, as with any well-used reference set, and some white spotting on half-leather binding. Six of the volumes have small tears to the leather at the top of the spine, including one repaired chip. I am offering for sale a true first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary, whose original title, in full, was A New English Dictionary on Historical Principles; Founded Mainly on the Materials Collected by the Philological Society, edited by James A.H. Murray, Sometime President of the Philological Society, with the assistance of many scholars and men of science. There are other sets identified as first editions but are actually later publishings that include supplements. This is the true first, consisting of 10 volumes bound in 12 volumes, published upon completion of each volume, the first, A-B, in 1888, and the last, V-Z, in 1928. They are bound in half dark-red Morocco, with lighter-red pebbled boards. The volumes range in size from about 400 pages to about 800, and the largest volume weighs in at a bit more than 15 pounds. If you are interested in this set you probably already know this, but the Oxford English Dictionary represents one of the greatest feats of scholarship in any language, and certainly in terms of dictionaries no other language has anything like it. The full 10-volume set includes 240,165 main words, 67,105 subordinate words, 47,800 combination … [Click Below for Full Description]

Autograph Letter Signed, in French, to [Richard Butler?], June 16, 1888, Paris. 4 pp., 5 1/8 x 8 1/8 in. French sculptor Frédéric Bartholdi writes to an American adviser, probably Richard Butler, about how to stop unauthorized souvenir statuettes of Liberty Enlightening the World from being made and sold in the United States. Complete TranslationParis, June 16, 1883My dear Friend,I am glad to have learned from all the news that reaches me and from the papers you send me that your work is proceeding well.Please be so kind and thank your father-in-law for all he does and for the affection he expresses toward me both by his actions and by the wonderful letters addressed to me that he gives people.If I were not distracted every single day by things that keep me busy and take up my time, I would already have written to him. I will decide to write to him in French, and you can translate it, because I would not know how to put into English all the good and kind things I want to tell him.I am so lucky to have found, in the middle of all the tribulations and banal sentiments that surround us in life, such a kind heart and sympathetic intelligence. I get this very warm feeling every time his name comes to mind. I was also very concerned when I heard of all the trouble he has had; I heard that he was facing it with the courage and grace that he brings to everything he does, which made me happy.I realize that I am about to write you this whole letter without talking to you about what made me reach for the pen in the first place.You have the copyright papers of my statue.

The mammoth set, complete in six volumes -- the Medical Volumes, Parts I, II, & III; and the Surgical Volumes, Parts I, II & III. The scope of this history is understated in the Nevins bibliography: "A compilation of elaborate statistics and numerous reports on various diseases and wounds". Garrison-Morton notes it as the "first comprehensive medical book" and "one of the most remarkable works ever published on military medicine". And Reese, in Stamped with a National Character, observes that this set 'marked the first major government subsidy in publishing medical research". The chromolithographic plates are in some cases stunningly gruesome, and the compilation is exhaustive. ~~We note these flaws: In Part I, Volume I the rear hinge has been reglued; in Part II, Volume I one tissue guard has been torn and has loss; in Part III the front hinge has been reinforced with japanese tissue and the boards are stained. In Part I, Volume II one of the chromolithographic plates has a small amount of the tissue guard adhered to it; Part II, Volume II several plates have lost tissue guard and a couple of guards are torn, with a couple with the guard adhering to the plate; in Part III, Volume II one plate and the adjacent leaf have been tipped back in, and have loss to the leading edge (not affecting the plate or the text) probably from a varmint. ~~Part I, Volume I of each series -- Medical and Surgical -- is the Second Issue edition; the other volumes are Firsts.

Bly, Nelly
New York: American Publishers Corporation 1888 First edition. Publisher's red cloth boards stamped in black on covers and spine with fleur-de-lis designs. Lettered in gilt on spine. . Some light staining on front free endpaper and title page, and a few light stains throughout. Two small stains, possibly paint, on back cover. Some rubbing to corners and head and tail of spine. Otherwise a very good, bright, and sound copy of an uncommon volume. Elizabeth Cochran Seaman (1864-1922), who wrote under the penname "Nellie Bly," was a groundbreaking investigative journalist best known for her book Ten Days in a Mad-House. The book collected the New York World report she wrote while undercover as a patient in the New York City Lunatic Asylum. Bly is also remembered for her voyage around the world in 72 days, which was inspired by Jules Verne's novel Around the World in Eighty Days and chronicled in The New York World and her 1890 book. Six Months in Mexico collects and expands upon the reports Bly sent back to the Pittsburg Dispatch while traveling in Mexico during 1885, when she was only twenty-one years old. On page 201, Bly writes, "There is hardly a spot in Mexico that has not some romantic history connected with it; and the tales are always so beautiful and full of thrilling romance.

1888. Acceptable copies. The hinge is damaged / wobbly on both books (see photos). However, despite the poor state of the hinges, the pages are not in immediate danger of falling out. Although it states on the spine of the books that this is the 2nd edition, it is actually a 2nd impression of the first edition. The 500 copies of the first printing of volume 1 were sold before date of publication to advance subscribers. This was followed by an immediate second impression, erroneously called "second edition". It was only a second printing from the same plates, with a few minor inaccuracies rectified.

[Atherton, Gertrude]
Chicago, New York & San Francisco: Bedford, Clarke and Co., 1888. Printed wrappers. Spine a bit darkened, with narrow cracks and small chips laid down, front wrapper evidently reattached, faint tidemark in extreme lower margin of several leaves, otherwise a very good copy. Full gilt morocco solander case (lacking bottom panel). First edition, wrapper bound issue, of the author's pseudonymously published first book. Best known for her popular novels set in California, Atherton published this work, "a tale of metampsychosis" set in Europe, under a pseudonym derived from the name of her collateral ancestor, Benjamin Franklin. In a later moment of candor, Atherton remarked that "I know now it was not worth the paper it was printed on." This copy bears the author's extended fifteen line 1927 inscription expressing a not dissimilar sentiment, with particular reference to the deluge of "reincarnation novels" that followed in its wake. WRIGHT III:163.
