The diaries cover the years 1888 through 1901, during which time Marguerite was living with her parents in Cincinnati up until her first marriage in July of 1896. She then lived with her in-laws after her husband's untimely death, the same day they were wed. She then married a second time in 1899 and moved with her new husband to Glen Ridge, New Jersey. The diaries cover the periods of both marriages and the death of her first husband. Marguerite Lloyd (1873-1941) Marguerite Lloyd was born at Cincinnati, Ohio, 26 April 1873. She was the daughter of Major Harlan Page Lloyd (1838-1913) and Harriet Raymond (-1890). Marguerite's mother was the daughter of John H. Raymond, LL.D., who was one of the organizers, and a president, of Vassar College. Marguerite's father, Harlan, was born in Angelica, Allegheny County, New York. He graduated Hamilton College in 1856 and was admitted to the New York Bar at Albany in 1861. Harlan Page Lloyd began his military career as a private in the 24th New York Light Artillery on August 30, 1862. Military life suited him well and he rose up through the ranks to sergeant in November 1862, 1st sergeant in January 1863, and was discharged for a promotion to 1st lieutenant of the 22nd New York Cavalry in February 1864. With the 22nd, he fought hard with his men at Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor, and earned his final promotion to captain in December 1864. While campaigning with Sheridan and acting as an aide to Custer during the Shenandoah Campaign, he was wounded in the lung. Determined to finish his service towards the end of the war, he continued to fight until he mustered out with his men at Winchester, Virginia on August 1, 1865. At one time he was promoted to major but there are no records of the promotion. After the war, Harlan Page Lloyd formed a legal practice in Cincinnati in partnership with Alphonso Taft, the father of President William Howard Taft. The firm was called Taft & Lloyd. In January 1883 the future President William Howard Taft became a partner with Marguerite's father under the firm name of Lloyd & Taft. Lloyd was the only law partner that the future president ever had. The firm lasted for several years, breaking up in March of 1887 when Taft was appointed by Ohio Governor Joseph B. Foraker to the position of judge of the Superior Court of Cincinnati.Major Lloyd married Marguerite's mother in Poughkeepsie, New York in June 1869. Together Major Lloyd and his wife had at least two children: Raymond and Marguerite Lloyd.Marguerite is found living on Southern Avenue in Cincinnati in the 1880 Census, which matches the inscription inside her 1889 Diary. Besides her parents and her brother Raymond, the family also had two live in servants. The diary for 1888 contains entries showing that Marguerite attended the Ogontz School for Young Ladies, an elite and prestigious school in Philadelphia that operated for a century, from 1850-1950. Marguerite Lloyd became engaged to broker Howard Robinson Benedict of New York City in March 1896. The couple was to be married in November of the same year. However, on July 1st Benedict contracted pneumonia and about July 18th he came down with peritonitis and blood poisoning. Knowing he would not live long, he asked Marguerite to marry him immediately on his death bed, which she did. They married at 10:30 A.M. on July 21st and by 6:20 P.M. he was dead. Benedict lived in New York City at 14 East Seventeenth Street. The couple was married in the presence of Benedict's brother, James H. Benedict, Jr., and Benedict's sister-in-law, Mrs. LeGrand L. Benedict. His burial was put off until his parents could return from Europe.Howard Benedict was the son of James H. Benedict, whose brother, the banker and yachtsman Elias Cornelius Benedict (1834-1920), was a good friend of President Grover Cleveland (1837-1908). It was on E.C. Benedict's yacht, the Oneida, that Cleveland had his secret surgery to remove a cancerous growth from his jaw in 1893. One of E.C. Benedict's sons, Frederick Hart Benedict, married the daughter of Standard Oil founder and Florida developer Henry Morrison Flagler (1830-1913). James H. Benedict and his brother E.C. were in business together for many years. In 1888, Howard R. Benedict formed a broker's partnership with his brother James, Jr., and they went into business at 48 Exchange Place. LeGrand was admitted to the firm in 1893.Marguerite married a second time on 18 October 1899 to Rufus B. Cowing, Jr. Cowing was born 12 December 1869, in New York City. He was an attorney. The couple is later found living in Glen Ridge, New Jersey in the 1910 Social Register. She and her husband were still living there in the 1930 Census. Cowing's father, of the same name, was a Judge of the Sessions Court in New York. Marguerite and Rufus had at least two children together: Dorothy Benedict Cowing born on 7 August 1900 and Rufus Balch Cowing, born about 1903. Marguerite Lloyd Cowing died in 1941. She was buried in Rosedale Cemetery, in Orange, Essex County, New Jersey. Description of the Diaries: The 1888 diary contains entries dated September to December, when she was attending the prestigious women's school in Philadelphia the "Ogontz School for Young Ladies." The entries mention some of the early teachers and principals of the school, such as Harriett A. Dillaye, Frances E. Bennett, and Sylvia Eastman. Marguerite discusses her classmates, their activities, the lectures (topics and the speakers) they attend, visits to Philadelphia to go shopping, or walks over to Shoemaker Town (in Cheltenham Township near Ogontz) just outside of Philadelphia, where they go to buy fruit. In 1889, Marguerite was still attending the Ogontz School and after Christmas break (1888) she takes a train back to Philadelphia from Cincinnati to begin school again. She finishes the spring semester, goes home to visit family during the summer and returns to Ogontz in the fall for school. The 1890 diary begins in January when she returns to school at Ogontz, she remains at school until April when she is called home due to her mother's illness. Her mother never recovered and died on April 30th. After the funeral, Marguerite stays in Cincinnati until late May when she returns to Ogontz to pack her things, and return home to Cincinnati to be with her father. She and her father, take a train to New York City, stopping at various places to visit family and friends, finally arriving at New York City where they take a steamer to Liverpool, England and vacation in Europe for an extended stay, visiting England, Scotland, Holland, Germany, France, Italy, Luxemburg, before heading back to England, and then home to Cincinnati in the fall. Marguerite apparently does not return to school at Ogontz, she stays at home and helps care for her father, who is now alone. Raymond, her brother was attending Yale University, which is where the 1890 diary ends. Rather than attend school; she takes some private lessons in music, French, and studies English literature on her own. The next diary is for the year 1892. In the summer she makes a trip east to New York, then later in November, Marguerite goes to Europe again, this time staying in Germany for an extended period, where she studies piano and voice in Dresden. Much of the diary, before her travels to Europe, is taken up with everyday activities in Cincinnati, spending time with friends, family, taking lessons, etc. The 1894 diary finds her traveling to New York, and then up to New Haven, to visit her brother who apparently appears was still studying at Yale. She joins her father in New York, who was already east on business. The entries reveal much about her life in Cincinnati, her friends, family, studying French, music, lectures, etc. She also makes another trip to Europe, returning to Germany in the early summer, and remains from late June to October in Europe (also visited England again). She traveled with her father and a woman she calls "mother," although her biological mother died in 1890. This was perhaps a grandmother, or second wife of her father? Not clear. In April of 1894 her diary notes for the first time a "Mr. Benedict, a young lawyer"who later became Marguerite's first husband. Marguerite's 1895 diary begins to mention Howard R. Benedict, her future 1st husband, more often as they begin to spend more time together when she is in New York. Marguerite traveled there at least once a year, sometimes more. She goes east again in February to New York City and the Philadelphia areas. She made another trip in the summer to upstate New York and New York City, both times spending more time with Benedict. There are many entries on her everyday activities while at home and while traveling The 1896 diary begins with Marguerite and Benedict spending New Year's Day together. In the spring she makes a trip to Baltimore to visit a friend and to Washington, D.C.to visit her aunt and uncle. Marguerite marries Howard R. Benedict on his deathbed in July. Marguerite receives a diamond engagement ring from Benedict in January and the plan was to marry in November, but when Benedict became ill in early July and his doctors told him he would not live, he sent for Marguerite, who was still in Washington, and they were married on the morning of July 21st. Benedict died later that evening. Marguerite fell into a depression, speaking of feeling "blue" several times. She remained in New York with the Benedict family and also spends time with her aunt and uncle in Washington. She returned to Cincinnati at the end of the year for the holidays. There are no diaries for 1897 and 1898, but there is one for 1899. Approximately three years after her husband's untimely death, in January 1899 Rufus B. Cowing's name is first mentioned. Rufus and Marguerite strike up a relationship and in October they marry. An entry in November states it was the couple's anniversary, so perhaps they likely met in November of 1898. There is much in the diary concerning her daily life, as a newly married couple, something she never experienced in her first marriage. She remains in the New York area, and eventually the couple moved to Glen Ridge New Jersey. The 1900 diary notes the birth of Marguerite's daughter Dorothy Benedict Cowing, born on 7 August 1900 at 5:15 p.m. The diary entries describe her life as a newlywed and a new mother. The 1901 diary continues regularly until about September and from September to December there are not many entries. Marguerite is now married and the mother of a daughter. Overall, the entries in Marguerite's ten diaries provide insight into the life a woman born into a wealthy and prominent family, one which allowed her to study and travel abroad. Her life was freed from the type of cares and menial labors of most women of her time, there was no housekeeping or chores to do, her family had servants to take care of those matters. She was a woman with an intellectual curiosity, who studied languages, literature, and music, and was prominent in the social circles of Cincinnati, with an extensive circle of family and friends in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.

        Grundriss der Gynäkologischen Operationen.

      Leipzig und Wien, Franz Deuticke, 1888, 8, X, 352 pp., mit 134 Holzschnitten, feiner Halbledereinband St.a.Tit. feines Exemplar. Erste Auflage! "Besonders erfolgreich hat sich Hofmeier auf operativem Gebiete betätigt: hier bot sich ihm ein großes Feld, sein ausgezeichnetes operatives Geschick und Können zu verwerten. Die operative Technik beherrschte er. wie selten einer er operierte so übersichtlich. gewebsschonend und technisch so vollendet, daß es eine Freude war. ihm zu assistieren oder beim Operieren zuzusehen. Zahlreiche Operationsmethoden und Verbesserungen gynäkologischer Operationen verdanken ihm ihre Entstehung erinnert sei an seine Arbeiten über die Myomotomie und über die "retroperitoneale" Stilversorgung bei supravaginalen Amputationen. Intensiv beschäftigte er sich mit der Behandlung des Uteruskarzinoms. Zur ausschließlichen Strahlenbehandlung operabler Karzinome konnte er sich nicht entschließen: sein therapeutisches Vorgehen bei operablen Karzinomen wurde unter dem Einfluß der Strahlenbehandlung aber insofern beeinflußt, als er jahrelang auf die erweiterte abdominale Totalexstirpation zugunsten der lebenssichereren erweiterten vaginalen Totalexstirpation verzichtete und diese vaginal operierten Fälle dann nachträglich noch bestrahlte. Die Hoffnung auf diese Weise günstigere Resultate zu erzielen, hat sich nicht erfüllt. Hofmeier kehrte deshalb in den letzten Jahren wieder zur abdominalen Totalexstirpation zurück. Eine besondere Genugtuung war es für ihn, als ich im Jahre 1922 feststellen konnte, daß unsere Resultate mit der Strahlenbehandlung des inoperablen Kollumkarzinoms (11,3% 5 jährige Dauerheilung) sich mit den Erfolgen derjenigen Kliniken messen konnten, die größere Erfahrungen auf dem Gebiete der Strahlentherapie besaßen. Wie sehr Hofmeier auch im Auslande als hervorragender gynäkologischer Operateur geschätzt wurde, beweist wohl die Tatsache, daß er im Jahre 1909 von der American gynaecological Society zur Teilnahme und Übernahme eines Referates bei der hundertjährigen .Jubiläumsfeier der ersten von Mc Dowell ausgeführten Ovariotomie eingeladen wurde. Zu dieser Feier war an je einen Vertreter der drei großen europäischen Kulturnationen, Deutschland, England. Frankreich, der an der Ausbildung der Ovariotomie in dem vergangenen Jahrhundert einen besonders hervorragenden Anteil genommen hatte, eine Einladung ergangen. Diese Vertreter waren für Deutschland: Hofmeier, für England: Herbert Spencer, für Frankreich: Porz.Sein "Grundriß der gynäkologischen Operationen", aus reichster operativer Erfahrung heraus entstanden, erschien auch in französischer und russischer Ubersetzung."

        Hector Berlioz. Sa Vie et Ses Oeuvres Ouvrage Orné de Quatorze Lithographies Originales par M. Fantin-Latour.

      Paris: A la Librairie de l'Art, 1888. Red Half Calf. Marbled Boards. . Fine. Folio, 306 by 213 mm. xvi, 386, [2] pp. With 14 original lithographs by Fantin-Latour, 3 other plates hors-texte, and 122 engravings illustrating the text. The Fantin-Latour lithos are outstanding, and the work is greatly augmented as well with the numerous engraved theatrical scenes, portraits and caricatures of Berlioz and his contemporaries, and several facsimiles of Berlioz's written scores. Jullien (1845-1932) was a prolific opera and theatre critic who wrote extensively on Wagner also, the relationship of Goethe and music, and the eighteenth century stage. This Berlioz biography originally appeared, in a much reduced form -- it was only 198 pages -- in 1882. Other than a few torn tissue guards, this copy is pristine, with an impressive half calf binding.

        Hector Berlioz. Sa Vie et Ses Oeuvres Ouvrage Orné de Quatorze Lithographies Originales par M. Fantin-Latour.

      A la Librairie de l'Art, Paris 1888 - Folio, 306 by 213 mm. xvi, 386, [2] pp. With 14 original lithographs by Fantin-Latour, 3 other plates hors-texte, and 122 engravings illustrating the text. The Fantin-Latour lithos are outstanding, and the work is greatly augmented as well with the numerous engraved theatrical scenes, portraits and caricatures of Berlioz and his contemporaries, and several facsimiles of Berlioz's written scores. Jullien (1845-1932) was a prolific opera and theatre critic who wrote extensively on Wagner also, the relationship of Goethe and music, and the eighteenth century stage. This Berlioz biography originally appeared, in a much reduced form -- it was only 198 pages -- in 1882. Other than a few torn tissue guards, this copy is pristine, with an impressive half calf binding. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        PIONEER DAYS ON PUGET SOUND

      Seattle: C. B. Bagley, 1888. FIRST EDITION. This is an account of the 1850s in Seattle by one of the founders of the city, offered here in a copy that is exceptionally well preserved. Tweney notes that only about 300 copies were printed privately by the author with the intent of distributing them to friends (with none for sale). "An unknown number were distributed, but the majority were still in Bagley's printing shop when the Seattle fire of 1889 completely destroyed the shop along with all of the remaining copies. These circumstances combined to make it one of the rarest of early Washington Territorial imprints." Arthur A. Denny (1822-99) was the leader of the so-called "Denny Party" of pioneers who ventured from Illinois to Puget Sound, arriving in November of 1851. They first landed at Alki, but soon realized that the eastern side of Elliott Bay was a much better location to settle. This area is now Pioneer Square, the historical heart of the city of Seattle. A graduate of Yale, Henry Bradford Loomis (1853-1939) practiced law in Seattle and San Francisco, and spent much of his life in private study and travel.. 173 x 122 mm. (6 7/8 x 4 3/4"). 83 pp. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's brown cloth, blind stamped silver titling on cover. In a modern brown morocco-backed clamshell box. Front free endpaper with the author's presentation inscription to Henry B. Loomis (see below); title page with Loomis' stamp; a single pencil notation correcting a date on p. 69; errata slip bound before p. 83. Tweney, Washington 89 #12; Howes D-253a, Graff 1053. Not in Sabin. A one-inch square faintly showing the shadow of a label on upper cover, verso of title and first page slightly toned (probably caused by a laid-in newspaper clipping), otherwise the contents virtually without fault. AN OUTSTANDING COPY of a fragile book difficult to find even half this good. This is an account of the 1850s in Seattle by one of the founders of the city, offered here in a copy that is exceptionally well preserved.

        William Sherman

      February 1, 1888. Autograph Letter Signed <I>“W.T. Sherman,”</I> three pages, 5.5” x 9.25”, front and verso. Army Building, New York, February 1, 1888. To [Logan C.] Murray. Lightly soiled in lower right of first page. Fine condition.<br /><br />In full, <I>“I send you a full list of Men [not present] prominent in New York State furnished me in confidence, the Stars indicating preference – all known to be friends of General Grant. I did intend to come down today but Mrs. Sherman arrived from Pittsburg last night – completely exhausted & demands my attention. I will be down however tomorrow or next day. Could you meanwhile complete a list for the Committee in number according to the Resolution made at the 5th Ave Hotel, and prepare for publication a notice announcing their names &c – I think this Committee should be asked to ‘canvas the Subject’ and to meet at the Gentlemans Parlor say two days before the anniversary of Gen. Grant to formulate the ‘Plan’ for submission to the General Meeting at the same place one year from the date of the other meeting as though that had been intended from the start. If Genl Corliss [sic, Collis] will surely be on hand I can promise if notified to come to the Bank say at 1. PM Friday. I am made use of by so many parties that I find it embarrassing – General Indiference [sic] is a harder enemy to deal with than Positive opposition.”</I><br /><br />Housed in a custom-made brown cloth covered four-flap folder, lettered in gilt on a burgundy label on the spine: <I>“William Tecumseh Sherman A.L.S. February 1, 1888 to Murray”</I>.<br /><br />General Ulysses S. Grant was born on April 27, 1822. He had died on July 23, 1885. On April 28, 1888, the “New-York Tribune” reported, in part, “The birthday of General Grant was celebrated last night at a dinner at Delmonico’s, at which there was a large representative gathering of men of all political creeds. The large dining-room presented a novel appearance. The guests were seated at nine round tables, each with its own president, who was one of the committee of fourteen appointed some weeks ago to make the arrangements. The room was gay with flowers, and three beautiful oil portraits of General Grant hung on the walls, draped in the Stars and Stripes. General W.T. Sherman, chairman of the committee, presided over the whole dinner and did the honors of the first table, below the central portraits. At that table there was a vacant chair, wreathed with evergreens. Roscoe Conkling’s place would have been there [former Sen. Conkling of New York had died on April 18th]…” The names of the men who “presided over the other tables” are then listed, including “General Charles H.T. Collis (secretary of the committee) … Logan C. Murray.”<br /><br />In 1874, New York banker Logan C. Murray met with seven other bankers and organized the American Bankers Association. He was President of the A.B.A. when General Sherman wrote this letter.<br />

        Priapeia

      Athens [London]: imprinted by the Erotika Biblion Society [H. S. Nichols and Leonard Smithers] for private distribution only,, 1888 [1889]. or the sportive epigrams of divers poets on Priapus now first completely done into English prose from the original Latin with introduction notes explanatory and illustrative and excursus: to which is appended the Latin text. Octavo (211 x 132 mm). Near contemporary dark purple morocco, spine gilt in compartments with titles direct, boards bordered with gilt rules, board edges gilt-ruled, turn-ins with gilt rolls and tooling, dark red silk endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. 28 near-contemporary original watercolour illustrations. Ends and corners a little rubbed, a few other minor scratches to covers, superficial split at front hinge but all holding firm, internally fresh, an excellent copy. First edition, unique erotically extra-illustrated copy with 28 original watercolours explicitly depicting a range of sex acts, number 54 of 250 copies of the first issue, of Richard Burton's anonymous translation (the first literal and complete into English) of the notorious Priapeia, which was a collection of mostly erotic or ribald Latin poems and epigrams, many drawn from inscriptions found on surviving statues of the god Priapus, the Roman God of fertility and erections. Though all were anonymous, the Introduction here postulates that some must have been authored by the likes of Ovid, Petronius, Catullus, Martial, and other such notably salacious Roman authors who lived around the time of the birth of Christ. This is one of 250 copies only of the very scarce first issue (dated 1888 but in fact issued in 1889 - a second issue of 500 copies was put out in 1890), and was the first publication of the Erotika Biblion Society set up by decadent publisher Leonard Smithers. Although Burton dissociated himself from the book, letters between him and Smithers show that they were both fully involved with this translation, and were planning other similar unexpurgated translation projects, before Burton died in 1890. This unique extra-illustrated copy has Burton's name added in pencil to the title page in an early hand, and has the ex-libris of an A. J. Cox, whose took for his library motto: "Vita sine literis mors est" ("Life without literature is death").

Covers browned with a splodge on the back; a nice copy An enchanting and self evident exposition on the value of pictures in learning. Seemingly as simple as a phrenology chart but judging by the amount of text worked into all those different parts of the brain perhaps a lot more complex. From the little, as an illiterate, I can glean on brain function as outlined here this might sit somewhere between phrenology and neurophysics. The open area at the very centre of the brain is labelled æ&#156;ªè - unknown.

        Letters of. to his Sister, M.A. Gordon

      London: Macmillan and Co. 1888 - First edition, 8vo, xix, (i), 404 pp. Gordon's sister's own copy, with her signature to the title page and annotations throughout, with in addition Gordon's signature pasted to the top of the half title and relevant press cuttings pasted to the front blanks. Original gilt titled blue cloth, an excellent copy. Most of Augusta Gordon's annotations are religious in nature, noting in brief the Biblical verses that her brother was referring to, or quoting them. She also quotes Marcus Aurelius ("What's sprung from earth dissolves to earth again.") and on page 194 has crossed through the printed words "You know the Bible better than I do", inferring her brother's superior knowledge. Near the end a full page of manuscript has been tipped in expanding on a printed letter in the appendix concerning a copy of "The Dream of Gerontius" that was given to Gordon while he was in Khartoum and which was subsequently offered to Cardinal Newman. A unique volume.

        Bengal Papers - a Series of Printed Transcritpions of Government Documents from the Bengal Archives.

      Calcutta: Government of India Central Printing Office,, 1888-95. Folio (326 × 212 mm). Rebound in half calf, marbled boards, to style, original red morocco label "Bengal Papers". Interleaved throughout. Contents lightly browned, occasional marginal soiling, overall very good. A series of 34 papers containing transcriptions of key documents from the archives of the Bengal Government, drawn from the period of Forrest's employment on "special duty" carrying out investigations into the content and condition of India's archives with a view to the the conservation of documentary material, the publication of key sources, and of the creation of a national repository, which was established in 1891 as the Imperial Record Office, now the National Archives of India. Evidently bound for Forrest's own use, interleaved throughout, but the interleaves unused. We have been unable to trace listings for any of these nonce papers, copies are certainly held in the India Office Collection at the BL, and no doubt the National Archive of India also. Contains much on Clive - including a substantial portion of his correspondence issued in just 50 copies - a life of whom Forrest was to publish in 1918 after over 30 years of accumulating material; "in The Life of Lord Clive Forrest allows his subject's letters to speak for themselves, with little authorial intervention".
