        VOYAGE OF WILL ROGERS TO THE SOUTH POLE.

      Launceston, Tasmania: Printed at the "Examiner" and "Tasmanian" Office,. [1888]. original dark green pebble-grain limp cloth wrappers, front cover stamped in black, floral endpapers.. A fine copy. OCLC reports 7 copies, all but one in Australian. libraries. No copies reported by COPAC. (#151808). First edition. First-person fictional account (presented as a factual memoir) of an English sailor, separated from his whaler in the antipodes and cast up on a warm Antarctic land with unusual flora and fauna and an intelligent race of ethically-advanced people, the Bencolians. This 17,000- word Robinsonade thus merges into a utopian fantasy. The hero declines the temptation of remaining there as an honored guest and, taking with him some gold dust and a large diamond, he sets off in a handmade boat and finds a ship to bring him home. An unusual aspect of the story, running counter to the usual social values of British fiction in this period, is the hero's decision, in spite of his sudden wealth, "to keep in business, as it was an occupation, which everyone ought to have, whether well off or not." A pleasantly told -- if unspectacular, tale -- and a very scarce book, with no copies recorded in any of the libraries of COPAC (including the British Library). This book was one of Stuart's major lacunae for many years. Blackford, et al., Strange Constellations: A History of Australian Science Fiction, p. 20; 228.

        My Adventure in The Flying Scotsman.

      London: James Hogg and Sons,, 1888. A Romance of London and North-Western Railway Shares. Small octavo. Printed wraps laid down on card boards, as issued. Housed in a brown cloth folding case. Covers lightly rubbed and soiled, half title and rear endpapers tanned. A relatively sound copy in good condition. First edition, first impression, of the author's scarce first book. Queen's Quorum 13 says; "In 1888, Eden Phillpotts's first book marked the beginning of one of the most prolific writing careers of our time. . . the cornerstone honour should be accorded to Mr. Phillpott's maiden mystery, the thin, fragile book with the 'rainbow' stamping which is seldom found even in the so-called complete collections of Eden Phillpott's work. Modern readers will undoubtedly agree that MY ADVENTURES IN THE FLYING SCOTSMAN is an old fashioned tale of theft and attempted murder, relying a bit too strongly on the long arm of coincidence, but peopled with richly Victorian characters caught in the fell clutch of melodramatic circumstance.

Part II, Pillow-Problems Thought Out During Sleepless Nights. Second edition. [Printed by Horace Hart, Oxford, for] Macmillan, 1893, pp. [xix], 109, [1, ads], 8vo, original light brown cloth, lettered in black on the upper cover and with a diagram, upper outer corners faded and a little affected by damp. [and:] . A New Theory of Parallels. Fourth edition. [Printed by Horace Hart, Oxford, for] Macmillan, 1895, pp. xxxi, 75, [1, ads], original cream cloth, lettered in black and with a diagram on the upper cover, lettering on spine a trifle rubbed. Both volumes are scarce but Part II is particularly rare. This is because on publication of the second edition in August 1893 Dodgson asked Macmillan to stop supplying copies of the first edition, to recall those already in the hands of agents, and to replace them with copies of the new edition, as 'the improvements in the 2nd edition are so important, that any purchaser of the book might reasonably consider he had been very hardly dealt with, if, with the new edition on the point of appearing, he was allowed to buy a copy of the inferior edition'. The great majority of the seventy-two problems were mentally worked out by Dodgson in the night, and not committed to paper until morning. He had the ability to visualize clearly complex diagrams and mathematical problems. His method, as he explains in the 'Intoduction', was usually to write down the answer first, then the question and its solution! His purpose for publishing the work was to encourage others to use studied mental occupation as a means of banishing troublesome thoughts. Part I is a scientific attempt to improve Euclid's 12th Axiom. The large collection of mathematical papers left by Dodgson give an indication of the vast amount of time he spent on this project. Amidst the mathematical investigations (p.61) is a piece of verse beginning 'I have wandered' which had not before been printed.

      New York, Minerva Pub. Co. 1888 - 1st Edition. Modern Boards. 8vo. [v], 219 pages ; 19 cm. In English. Singerman (Antisemitica) 0019. One of the earliest and most notable anti-Semitic publications in American history and probably the first to focus explicitly on Jews in New York City, coming as the third wave of poor Eastern European immigrants to New York and other East Coast cities began. Timayenis, a Greek academic, established Minerva Publishing House as the first Anti-Semitic publishing house in America. This was his first book at Minerva. Singerman writes, "Presents a colorful account of Jewish exploitation, criminality, usury, lechery, vulgarity, an fraud in the immigrant ghetto of New York City. The Christian-hating Jews are depicted as parasites, competing with the Anglo-Saxons for control of America. " Paper is browning. A few pages torn with no text effected. Overall good+ condition.

        Journal des Demoiselles" and "Le Gout du Jour, Journal de Coiffures" [From the personal library of Robert Florey*]

      Journal des Demoiselles et Petit Courrier des Dames Réunies; Auguste Petit, Paris 1888 - Folio. Unpaginated Three-quarter leather over purple cloth boards, with gold lettering on spine. Robert Florey's ex-Libris on inside of front board. A wonderful look at covers of two French fashion magazines: 2 color covers of "Journal des Demoiselles," and 45 b/w covers of "Le Gout du Jour, Journal de Coiffures", starting with September 1880 and going through December 1888. Illustrated with 45 b/w etchings of women and their head wear. Front board detached but present. Chipping to spine. Corners bumped and worn. Discoloration and soiling to boards. Text in French. Binding in poor, interior in very good condition. * Robert Florey (1900-1979) was a French-American director, screenwriter, film journalist and occasional actor. Born in Paris, and at first a film journalist, Florey moved to the United States in September 1921. As a director Florey's most productive decades were the 1930s and 1940s, working on relatively low-budget programmers for Paramount and Warner Brothers. His reputation is balanced between his avant-garde expressionist style, most evident in his early career, and his work as a fast, reliable studio-system director called on to finished troubled projects, such as 1939's "Hotel Imperial." He directed more than 50 movies. His most popular film is likely the first Marx Brothers feature "The Cocoanuts" (1929), and his 1932 foray into Universal-style horror, "Murders in the Rue Morgue" is regarded by horror fans as highly reflective of German expressionism. In 2006, as his 1937 film "Daughter of Shanghai" was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, Florey was called "widely acclaimed as the best director working in major studio B-films" [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Oakland, California: Published at the Old Cabin, Yo Semite Valley, and at Pacific Press Publishing House, 1888. Near Fine. Near Fine. 1888, fourth edition and uncomplicated as such. This is bound in the same elaborate green cloth and gilt as the earlier editions, top edge gilt, folding map (small tear at joint). This particular copy is a freakish survivor, all gilt bright and clean, completely unshaken, which is rare for this title. No splits to the cloth, boards tight, paper gutters completely fresh. The book has only one charming defect: someone has dropped leaves (no doubt from a trip to Yosemite) between a number of leaves, about ten sets of plant leaves or flowers. These very old leaves stain the pages they are dropped in but the effect is charming because nearly all of the original leaves and flowers are present. Good fun. The book itself is very nearly fine, bright and clean and gorgeous, completely without other markings, signatures or foxing. It also really pops on the shelf. A great piece of California history and a wonderful copy to admire.

A wonderful look at covers of two French fashion magazines: 2 color covers of "Journal des Demoiselles," and 45 b/w covers of "Le Gout du Jour, Journal de Coiffures", starting with September 1880 and going through December 1888.

Born in Paris, and at first a film journalist, Florey moved to the United States in September 1921. As a director Florey's most productive decades were the 1930s and 1940s, working on relatively low-budget programmers for Paramount and Warner Brothers. His reputation is balanced between his avant-garde expressionist style, most evident in his early career, and his work as a fast, reliable studio-system director called on to finished troubled projects, such as 1939's "Hotel Imperial." He directed more than 50 movies. His most popular film is likely the first Marx Brothers feature "The Cocoanuts" (1929), and his 1932 foray into Universal-style horror, "Murders in the Rue Morgue" is regarded by horror fans as highly reflective of German expressionism. In 2006, as his 1937 film "Daughter of Shanghai" was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, Florey was called "widely acclaimed as the best director working in major studio B-films"

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED BY SARAH PORTER, REGRETFULLY DECLINING A WEDDING INVITATION DUE TO PRESSING CONCERNS AT HER SCHOOL]

      Farmington, [Ct.], 1888. 3pp. Folded 4to sheet. Old fold lines. Near fine. 3pp. Folded 4to sheet. Letter written by Sarah Porter, founder of Miss Porter's School for Girls, to a friend (and possibly former student) regretfully declining an invitation to her wedding.  Miss Porter studied privately with Yale Professors. and her brother, Noah, later became President of Yale. She was an opponent of women's suffrage. She notes in this letter that affairs at the school will keep her far too busy to make the journey.  Sarah Porter (1813-1900) founded her school in Farmington in 1843, setting it up as an institution at which girls could receive a well-rounded academic education.  She writes, in part:   "My dear Mary,  I thank you heartily that you have desired me as one of your wedding guests and I should be very happy in being with you at this so happy moment of your life.  I could not easily under any circumstances easily leave school for so long a time as a journey to [Newton?] would require - but, now Mr. Brandt's wretched health renders him unable to teach, and his classes fall daily into my care, so that my place is daily here.  Your own and your brother's wedding at once will not only doubly crown the day, but give promise to multiplied successive anniversaries...."
