        Base-Ball: How to Become a Player, with the Origin, History, and Expansion of the Game

      Philadelphia: The Athletic Publishing Company. 1888. First. First edition, wrappered issue. 149pp. Bound in black cloth covers with wrappers bound in. A couple of old professional paper repairs, slight wear, a near fine copy. Ward was one of the great pitchers; when he injured his arm, he became a star shortstop for the New York Giants. Unlike most players of his day, he was a college graduate, earning a law degree from Columbia while playing. He was the first President of the Brotherhood of Professional Base Ball Players, the first players' union, and in 1890 helped to form the Players' League, which folded after one season. The Hall of Famer retired at 34 as player-manager of the world champion Giants. One of the first truly important books on baseball as a game. .

        This is ye Log of ye [in pencil, hand-lettered with a drawing of a log] good Yacht "Truant" her Cruise with a Cargo of Doctors, Commodore Chas. A. Cheever, Commanding, Summer of 1882

      [No place: privately printed. 1888?]. Oblong octavo. Pictorial wrappers. 184pp. Typewritten on rectos only, paper watermarked with the date 1882. Very good condition; negligible wear. A presumably unknown privately printed yachting yarn associated with a known yachting aficionado and a remarkable, handicapped inventor who erected and owned the first telephone lines in New York City. Charles A. Cheever's (1852-1900) obituary describes him as a noted electrical inventor "who organized various sub-telephone companies in New York State and erected and owned the first telephone lines in New York City." To prove the commercial viability of the telephone, Cheever staged a public demonstration wherein he connected his office in the Tribune building with the American Institute Fair. From this, the strains of music from the band were head over the telephone wire. [Auburn Democrat Argus, May 4, 1900, p. 8]. Cheever was a recognizable figure on the streets of New York where he was affectionately known by all as "Commodore Cheever" by the city's inhabitants: "Mr Cheever was a great lover of yachting. He was a member of the New York and Seawanhaka Corinthian yacht clubs, being one of the early promoters of the latter. He was greatly interested in the sailing of small yachts, and owned first the sloop yacht Truant and afterward the schooner yacht Crusader." The "Truant" begins her trip on August 18 1882 leaving Newport, [Rhode Island] Harbor, laden with her "cargo of doctors" [names as of yet unidentified] and returns September 1st. The item is a novelty being laid out and written in the format of a ship's log, but then bursting forth, at random, into humorous verse, presumably from Cheever. Destinations and activities mentioned include, in part, Nantucket Harbor, Cape Cod, Cohasset Harbor, reeling in the blue fish, swimming, dining, and general joviality. From infancy, Cheever was paralyzed from the waist down. He never weighed more than 77 pounds. A servant carried Cheever on his back throughout the streets of New York. [Ref., K.A. Wilson, "A review of early telephone history in New York City: telephone events related to New York City before the commercial introduction of the telephone: history of the first company, the Telephone Company of New York, and the founding of its successor, the Bell Telephone Company of New York. New York: New York Telephone Co.", 1950, typescript]. Not in OCLC, and presumably unrecorded. .

      Glasgow and London: Oatts & Runciman, 1888 - Henry Shields and James Meikle Illustrated plate from Famous Clyde Yachts 1880-87 Glasgow and London: Oatts & Runciman, 1888 Chromolithograph 19 ¼" x 22 ¼" framed This beautiful and historically important series of famous 19th century yachts depict scenes from the Clyde River area in Scotland. This area near Glasgow has been a famous area for yachting for over a century. Sporting activities, such as riding, shooting, fishing and yachting were becoming more popular in England at this time with the growing middle and upper classes. At the same time the process of chromolithography had been developed, producing colored prints that have the look and feel of a watercolor. These developments led to a number of sporting portfolios being produced in England at the end of the late 19th century. This particular notable series of yachting scenes is based off of watercolors by Henry Shields. The volume was arranged and written by James Meikle, whom wished to highlight the notable yachts of Clyde. Each illustration features a yacht, and Meikle accompanies each yacht scene with a thorough description of that vessel.

Boards stamped in blind and gilt, with owner's name: "William Henry Beard, March 4th, 1888" in gilt on the front board.

        Mercantile Marine Insurance Rotating Officers Chart

      [Boston. circa 1888]. Framed chart of the officers of the Mercantile Marine Insurance Company in Boston, Massachusetts. The original wood frame measures approximately 11" x 13.5" and houses an intricately hand-drawn pen and ink chart with slots for the names of various corporate officers. The acting directors slot at the top features a rotating wheel, open at the rear of the frame, to easily change names. The frame shows moderate chipping while the chart is somewhat soiled, with all but three of the slots containing the original names and the original backers and spacers made from a contemporary calendar contained under the chart in the rear, very good. The Mercantile Marine Insurance Company was a firm established in 1823 and located on 58 State Street in Boston. Despite adding fire coverage to its business the year before the Great Boston Fire of 1872, it still managed to turn a tidy profit and continue doing business for more than a decade. It was one of only two such firms in Boston at the time to offer both marine and fire coverage. An interesting item of 19th Century business decor and utilitarianism. Further details available upon request. .

      David Douglas. Hardcover. A Limited Edition of 520 copies, of which the first 100 were large format with etchings on Japanese. This volume is numbered within the first 100 - No. 53. Bound in a heavy twill oatmeal cloth with gilt titling, the rubbing is clearly visible but without noteworthy damage save a little fraying at the points of the corners where the cloth has been folded around. The gilt titling and centrepiece have not escaped surface rubbing but remain clear, the top corner has a faintly visible "Japanese Proofs" in gilt as per the special edition. There is some bumping at the corners and over the open edge. As a general note, the exterior is only moderately worn for its age and carries only the wear you would expect from general handling. There are no structural issues with this behemoth, the hinges are rock solid and the pages are solid in the binding. The pages are a heavy grade paper and robust, they are unevenly bound and the outer edges have collected a deep tone. Inside, the pages have some handling related marking and often a lightly toned silhouette of the opposing illustration but remain generally clean and clear. No tears or lose pages other than some wear to the outer edges. . Good. 1888.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Emile Zola"), Medan 22 aout 88, sending payment for the casting of a bronze bust

      Medan, 22 august 1888 - Excellent autograph letter, signed, from the great French novelist Emile Zola (1840-1902) to an unnamed recipient, sending a cheque (not present) for 400 francs "en paiement du buste en bronze que vous avez fondu pour moi et je vous prie de vouloir bien m'envoyer une facture acquittée". For Zola, 1888 was an eventful year. On 14 July, the Legion d'honneur was conferred upon Zola (he had previously refused in 1884 and 1886). Two days before the present letter was composed, he finished writing La Rêve. "En 1888, Zola a deux révélations: l'amour et la photographie" (Massin). He took up photography and met Jeanne Rozerot, who became his mistress toward the end of the autumn. Zola's engagement with the arts was significant and of long standing, and in 1891 when elected president of the Société des gens de lettres, he lobbied for Rodin to be chosen for the planned monument to Balzac. A choice letter from an eventful year. In a copy of L'Attaque du moulin (1901), one of 300 copies, with plates handcolored (wrappers bound in). Half morocco, spine gilt with red lozenge onlays by P. Affolter, front board detached 8vo. One page, black ink on laid paper, 10 lines, approx. 50 words, with integral blank. Old folds. Fine. Tipped into a copy of L'Attaque du moulin (1901) [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        å™ ç‰ å› å¼ [Kibutsu Zushiki - Vessel Patterns (more or less)].

      - Tokyo, Hayashi Tamiji 1888 [Meiji 21]. 245x180mm publisher's wrapper with printed label (sometime rebacked with rice paper and since split down the spine); [2]pp, one single and 51 double page litho plates. Bound as an accordian fold, with one plate separated down the fold. Signs of use but pretty good for a book virtually guaranteed to be used to pieces. An intriguing thing: a lithographed pattern book for export ceramic ware and very much a working book. Essential at the time when Japanese manufactury moved from craft to industry with the introduction of plaster casting, transfer printing and so on. Pots, cups and saucers, jugs, vases, urns, bowls . some items are shown decorated, some show enough decoration to be a guide and many are outline plates - some at full scale - to get the form right. Getting the form right was the important bit at this point, pattern books for decoration were plentiful. This has the look of being adapted from a Chinese work - which makes sense, the Chinese had a long established export market, and some of the forms here are already a century old - but I can't trace what that may be. Nor can I find much about this; Worldcat finds one copy, in Chicago, and further searches find only the National Diet Library copy.]sq

        Q. HORATI FLACCI OPERA

      London: [Printed by C. Whittingham for] Kegan Paul, Trench & Co, 1888. n. Hardcover. 159 x 95 mm (6 1/4 x 3 3/4"). 2 p.l., 302 pp. Preface by Francis Warre Cornish. ARRESTING RED MOROCCO ELABORATELY INLAID IN A MOSAIC PATTERN BY RAMAGE (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers bordered with thin decorative and plain gilt rules, the rest of the boards entirely covered with inlaid diapering featuring rows of teal lozenges tooled with gilt fleurons, these flanked on all four sides with inlaid tan circles, the red morocco tooled with curving gilt lines attached to the dots, raised bands, spine compartments with similar inlaid teal lozenges tooled in gilt, delicate gilt cornerpieces, gilt titling, pastedowns framed by red morocco inlaid with tan circles at the corners and with gilt floral tooling, cream-colored watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt. In a modern felt-lined red cloth folding box. With engraved frontispiece and printer's device on title page. A couple of faint creases to leaves, but A VIRTUALLY MINT COPY, immaculate internally and in a lovely, lustrous, unworn binding. This is a very attractively printed and beautifully bound edition of Horace, edited by beloved Eton schoolmaster Francis Warre Cornish (1839-1916). The volume features a sparkling and animated design from one of the most respected English binders during the last half of the 19th century. Born in London in 1836, John Ramage served an apprenticeship with John Wright, then went to Paris, where he was able to work with the distinguished Marcellin Lortic. In 1860 Ramage purchased the binding business of Alexander Banks, Jr., in Edinburgh, then returned three years later to London, where he was in business at various locations into the 20th century (W. D. and N. M. Ramage carried on the business until 1929). The delicate and careful execution for which the bindery was known is clearly on display in the mosaic inlays here. Our binding follows a tradition of mosaic bindings that is said to have originated in France in the early part of the 18th century and was resurrected in England at the end of that century by Staggemeier & Welcher, perhaps at the suggestion of James Edwards.
