        Brother and Sister, sonnets by Marian Lewes.

      For Private Circulation only. 1869 [1888] 15pp. Half title. Sewn as issued in orig. pale blue printed wrappers. A v.g. copy in green cloth portfolio.Baker & Ross B6.1. See Carter & Pollard pp191-193. This is the first printing, made some time in 1888. Analysis of both the paper and type show this could not have been printed as early as 1869, and is undoubtedly one of Thomas J. Wise's notorious forgeries. The pamphlet was first offered to the British Museum in October 1888, for the price of 3 guineas, and further copies were distributed in the years that followed. The sonnets were written by Eliot in 1869, but first appeared in print in The Legend of Jubal, first published in 1874. With accompanying hand-written notes on a Scribner's Bookstore envelope, by the bibliographer John Carter, in which he confirms the publication to be a forgery.

        The Modern Distributive Process.

      Boston: Ginn & Company,, 1888. Studies of competition and its limits, of the nature and amount of profits, and of the determination of wages, in the industrial society of to-day. Octavo (232 x 145 mm). Original blue cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt. Occasional pencil markings to the text. Extremities rubbed, spine ends and corners lightly bumped, boards faintly marked, otherwise a bright, excellent copy. First edition in book form of this important precursor to Clark's The Distribution of Wealth (1899), originally serialized in the Political Science Quarterly. "Reference should also be made to the important series of complementary articles by the author and F. H. Giddings on The Modern Distributive Process... These four 'studies of the process by which the income of modern society is divided among its principal claimants' lead to complementary conclusions which were established independently and before joint publication had been decided upon. Clark writes on 'The Limits of Competition' and on 'Profits under Modern Conditions', and Giddings on 'The Persistence of Competition' and on 'The Natural Rate of Wages'" (Batson).

        Money

      New York: Henry Holt and Company,, 1888. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1883; [together with] — The Wages Question. A treatise on wages and the wages class. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1886; [together with] — Political Economy. Third edition, revised and enlarged. 3 volumes, octavo. Uniformly bound in contemporary half roan, twin green morocco labels, compartments ruled and decorated in brown and gilt, marbled boards, endpapers, and edges. Some wear and stripping to leather, otherwise a bright and fresh set in excellent condition. Presentation copies, inscribed from the author to the businessman Augustus Lowell, Walker's colleague at MT, with an additional leaflet publication of Walker's lecture on bimetallism laid in. An attractively bound set of three pioneering works by "the most widely known and esteemed American economist of his generation" (The New Palgrave IV, p. 850). Walker was elected President of MIT in 1881, at a time when Augustus Lowell was a trustee and member of the institution's Executive Committee. "Walker's work and influence served as models not only because he discussed production, labor, and wages with unusual clarity for his time, but also because his interest in monetary issues (influenced by his father, also an economist) enabled him to describe the difference between nominal and real values. His clarifications of monetary issues coincided with concurrent national interests in the gold/silver/bimetallism parity controversies of the late 1800s, and the meaning of money for an economy. Walker later wrote a textbook that was used in classrooms till the publication of Alfred Marshall's Principles of Economics. Walker became the first President of the American Economic Association. His professorships at Yale and MIT changed the courses of their economics programs. His leadership abilities were evident in every realm of his life, including his stint as a General during the Civil War. His devotion to economics as a profession paved the way for many generations of US economists" (Landsburg).

        Jack the Giant Killer.

      London: Eyre and Spottiswoode, 1888. First manuscript facsimile edition, reproduced from Richard Doyle's original text. Slim quarto, original cloth, patterned endpapers, illustrated. Near fine in the original dust jacket with some chips and tears. Any dust jacket from the 1880's are rare; this is the only example we have seen or heard of. Rare and desirable. The story of Jack, the intrepid boy whose courage and ingenuity defeated a host of many-headed giants, has been told to children for hundreds of years. In 1842, when he was just 18, Richard Doyle, whose natural talent for draftsmanship was matched by imaginative invention and a passion for legend and the grotesque, created a picture-book version of Jack the Giant Killer, with hand-written text and a watercolor within a pictorial border decorating every page. "Doyle was one of the most popular Victorian illustrators of fairy stories... [he] always possessed an extraordinary power of fanciful and imaginative draftsmanship and sense of the grotesque. His boyhood fascination with fairy stories stayed with him all his life, and stimulated his greatest book illustrations" (Dalby, 10). In 1842, when Doyle was only 18 years old, he created this manuscript, both text and illustrations, of Jack the Giant Killer; in 1851, he finally published a book with that title. However, the text was substantially revised and illustrated anew. This manuscript facsimile edition was published in 1888, after Doyle's death, with the original story and illustrations. The volume is "astonishing for its precocity" (Victorian Illustrated Books).

        Art Gems of the Home anf Fireside

      J.A. & R.A. Reid, Publishers 1888 - Long unknown to Gilman scholars, Art Gems is now recognized as the pioneering feminist's first book, discussed by Gilman's biographer Cynthia Davis: "The roughly 100 page illustrated volume covers forty-nine artists, each work accompanied by commentary written by the book's author, "Mrs. Charles Walter Stetson," a formality Charlotte may have adopted to capitalize on her husband's better renown in the art world. " (Davis, Charlotte Gilman: A Biography, p.104ff). Prior to her marriage to Stetson in 1884, Gilman had studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, and subsequently supported herself as a painter and a designer of trade cards. At a glance, the volume appears little more than a Victorian American parlor book, with little relation to Gilman's later feminist, socialist and utopian ideologies. But careful examination reveals that, whether she wrote about race, suffrage, or art, Gilman was a sensitive social critic. Her commentary on the images in Art Gems is frequently sarcastic, occasionally biting, especially as regards the representation of women in the artworks she has included. As one critic has noted, discussing Gilman’s interpretative captions: "[Gilman’s] phrasing suggests that she is imposing . her personal disappointment with the pervasive view that "no one would believe" an attractive woman can care deeply about books.We cannot ignore the social purpose and sarcasm behind Gilman’s interpretation or the significance of her frustration with the social construction of domestic femininity: ideological characterizations of the woman were fluid yet persistent" (Catherine J. Golden, Images of the Woman Reader in Victorian British and American Fiction (University Press of Florida, 2003). Folio, olive green cloth, with titling and decorative elements stamped in red and dark green to spine and covers; illustrated with 50 engravings. Mild discoloration and light staining to boards. Very good sound copy with some edge-wear and a few spots to covers. Notably uncommon in the first edition particularly in a well-preserved state; OCLC locates 19 copies.

        Thoth

      1888 - Nicholson, Joseph Shield. Thoth. A Romance. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1888. Octavo, original gilt-stamped orange cloth, uncut. $2000.First edition of this early science fiction classic, in original cloth.This science fiction novel is set in Ancient Greece. In it, a scientifically advanced people from an Egyptian city-state (founded and ruled by a succession of rulers called Thoth) has kidnapped Grecian maidens, taking them away by airship. It is one of a group of accomplished, but strangely forgotten science fiction novels written in 1888. "Thoth is the best-known of these, although ‘best-known’ is hardly accurate To the critics, this is a shame, since they see Thoth as the best Victorian sf novel that most sf fans have never heard of. John Clute calls Thoth ‘impressive,’ and E.F. Bleiler says it is ‘one of the major science-fiction novels of the 19th century Thoth certainly has imagination: in addition to the Lost Race, it’s got Pharaonic superscience, suspended animation (including every previous Thoth, back to the first), bio-engineered plagues, sleeping gas, self-propelled flying machines, genetic engineering (which produces slave races of giants and dwarfs), and a subway system" (Nevins, i09). Early ink owner signature on half-title.A few spots of foxing to interior, only light rubbing to cloth, mild toning to spine. A handsome copy in near-fine condition. Rare.

VII). - Engels beschäftigte sich 1886 anlässlich einer Besprechung der Dissertation von C. N. Starke "Ludwig Feuerbach" für die "Neue Zeit" erneut mit Ausgangsfragen des wissenschaftlichen Sozialismus. Die Abhandlung ist die überarbeitete, ausführliche Darlegung. "Er versucht hier, den ursprünglichen Ansatz der materialistischen Geschichtsauffassung im Feuerbachteil der Deutschen Ideologie von 1845-46 zu einer auf dem neuesten Erkenntnisstand der Wissenschaft beruhenden, Natur und Geschichte umfassenden materialistischen Dialektik auszubauen, die, durch mancherlei Zeitströmungen beeinflusst, sich in den Grundgedanken kaum mehr mit den früheren charakteristischen Anschauungen von Marx und Engels vereinbaren lässt" (H.

The story of Jack, the intrepid boy whose courage and ingenuity defeated a host of many-headed giants, has been told to children for hundreds of years. In 1842, when he was just 18, Richard Doyle, whose natural talent for draftsmanship was matched by imaginative invention and a passion for legend and the grotesque, created a picture-book version of Jack the Giant Killer, with hand-written text and a watercolor within a pictorial border decorating every page. "Doyle was one of the most popular Victorian illustrators of fairy stories... [he] always possessed an extraordinary power of fanciful and imaginative draftsmanship and sense of the grotesque. His boyhood fascination with fairy stories stayed with him all his life, and stimulated his greatest book illustrations" (Dalby, 10). In 1842, when Doyle was only 18 years old, he created this manuscript, both text and illustrations, of Jack the Giant Killer; in 1851, he finally published a book with that title. However, the text was substantially revised and illustrated anew. This manuscript facsimile edition was published in 1888, after Doyle's death, with the original story and illustrations. The volume is "astonishing for its precocity" (Victorian Illustrated Books).

        Money. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1883; [together with] — The Wages Question. A treatise on wages and the wages class. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1886; [together with] — Political Economy. Third edition, revised and enlarged.

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1888 - 3 volumes, octavo. Uniformly bound in contemporary half roan, twin green morocco labels, compartments ruled and decorated in brown and gilt, marbled boards, endpapers, and edges. Some wear and stripping to leather, otherwise a bright and fresh set in excellent condition. Presentation copies, inscribed from the author to the businessman Augustus Lowell, Walker's colleague at MT, with an additional leaflet publication of Walker's lecture on bimetallism laid in. An attractively bound set of three pioneering works by "the most widely known and esteemed American economist of his generation" (The New Palgrave IV, p. 850). Walker was elected President of MIT in 1881, at a time when Augustus Lowell was a trustee and member of the institution's Executive Committee. "Walker's work and influence served as models not only because he discussed production, labor, and wages with unusual clarity for his time, but also because his interest in monetary issues (influenced by his father, also an economist) enabled him to describe the difference between nominal and real values. His clarifications of monetary issues coincided with concurrent national interests in the gold/silver/bimetallism parity controversies of the late 1800s, and the meaning of money for an economy. Walker later wrote a textbook that was used in classrooms till the publication of Alfred Marshall's Principles of Economics. Walker became the first President of the American Economic Association. His professorships at Yale and MIT changed the courses of their economics programs. His leadership abilities were evident in every realm of his life, including his stint as a General during the Civil War. His devotion to economics as a profession paved the way for many generations of US economists" (Landsburg). Batson p. 34 (Political Economy) and p. 78 (The Wages Question, 1st ed.) See Lauren F. Landsburg, "Walker, Francis A.", Library of Economics and Liberty, 2004. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Finsch, S. 23), kleine Kolonien gegründet mit dem Ziel den Handel mit Kopra zu befördern, und damit insgesamt der Kolonialisierung dieses Teils des späteren »Deutsch Neu-Guinea« Vorschub geleistet. Finsch schrieb zudem in seinen Tagebüchern Erlebnisse mit den einheimischen Melanesiern nieder, fertigte gemeinsam mit seiner mitreisenden Frau Elisabeth Skizzen an, und sammelte ethnografische Objekte. Die Tafeln zeigen u.a. Kultgegenstände, Häuser, Kanus, Haushaltsgeräte aus Ton und Stein, Waffen, Musikinstrumente, Bekleidung und reichlich Schmuck.

Ownership inscription of the noted economist Ronald L. Meek to half title. Spine ends and corners worn, spine slightly darkened, free endpapers removed; withal a very good copy. First edition of Wicksteed's first work. Fundamentally a basic textbook of new economics, it did much to popularise the adjective "marginal" and the term "marginal analysis" and received the approbation of both Edgeworth and Pareto.

        Auld Licht Idylls

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1888. 1st Edition, 1st Printing. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 250 p. Inscribed by Author(s). Inscribed first edition of Barrie's second book. Original dark blue cloth, beveled. 8vo, 250 pp. with 2 pp. of undated ads. These tales were told to Barrie by his mother, the "daughter of a local stonemason who was one of the most fanatical upholders of that fiercely puritanical brand of Protestantism known as the Auld Lichts" [Dunbar]. This copy is in very good-plus condition (an unobtrusive one-inch split in the front joint, as is often the case with these hefty H&S volumes). This is an inscribed presentation copy signed by Barrie, reading on the half-title "Walter Sichel | from J. M. Barrie." Also, loosely inserted is a two-page autograph letter signed by Sichel, dated Feb. 17, 1930, to an unidentified bookseller, offering to sell this book ("I have a presentation copy of the first edition (1888) of Sir James Barrie's Auld Licht Idylls which he gave me at that time..."). Sichel (1855-1933) was an English lawyer and biographer who wrote books on Disraeli, Sheridan, Sterne and Emma Lady Hamilton; his sister Edith Sichel was also a noted biographer. It would appear that the bookseller did buy this book from Sichel; otherwise how would the book and the letter have wound up together? Cutler 5. Additional postage may be required for international orders, please inquire of bookseller for exact amount.
