BATES, Louise)
St. Lawrence County [New York], 1889. Approximately 8" x 9.5". Paper toned, old creases with small splits at the edges, tiny nicks in the margins, two recipes in pencil written on the verso, about very good. No one can doubt Miss Bates' grit. Two months earlier she had come very close to drowning when she parachuted into Deal Lake in Asbury Park, New Jersey; five years later she was forced to jump from her balloon when it was a couple of hundred feet high, glancing off the top of a tree when her parachute didn't have time to open, and essentially escaping unhurt. *OCLC* locates no copies.

He claimed, for example, that officers were much healthier than regular soldiers because they hunted, went pig-sticking and played polo" (Block and Proctor, eds., Scouting Frontiers: Youth and the Scout Movement's First Century, 2009, p. 128).

The Century Co, New York, 1889. 24 parts complete. A lovely printed important Dictionary. "The Century Dictionary was admired for the quality of its entries, the craftsmanship in its design, typography, and binding, and its excellent illustrations. It has been used as an information source for the makers of many later dictionaries, including editors of the Oxford English Dictionary, who cited it over 2,000 times in the first edition. In 1913, Stewart Archer Steger from the University of Virginia published his Ph.D. dissertation "American Dictionaries" and devoted a 14-page Chapter VI to Century Dictionary. He concluded the chapter with these words: "Altogether, The Century Dictionary far surpasses anything in American lexicography." Some spines glued, spines are darkened, else a very good complete set in the first edition in parts. * 24 parts complete. [Attributes: First Edition]

STEVENSON, Robert Louis
New York: George Munro, M.J. Ivers & Company, 1889. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I can provide a link to many more photos. Just ask! 1889 HORROR Strange Case of Jekyll & Hyde Robert Lewis Stevenson + Ballantrae "If I am the chief of sinners, I am the chief of sufferers also." ― Robert Louis Stevenson, 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson was a Scottish essayist, poet, and author of fiction and travel books, best known for his novels 'Treasure Island,' 'Kidnapped,' 'Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,' and 'The Master of Ballantrae' published in 1889. 'Jekyll and Hyde' is one of the most well-known stories of good and evil and the dichotomy between the two. Originally published serially in Scribner's Magazine 1888-1889, 'The Master of Ballantrae' is a novel in which Stevenson revisits the theme of moral ambiguity that he explored in his 1886 novel 'Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde'. Specifically, it tells the story of James Durie and his younger brother Henry, who took opposing sides in the second Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 and divided their family as a result. After the Master, his father's favorite son, is presumed a casualty of combat, Henry must assume his older brother's position in the family and marry his wife, causing the Master to feel cheated and vengeful when he returns to find his younger brother in his place. This book contains both 'Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' and 'The Master of Ballantrae' bound in one volume!

Dana, Katharine Floyd
Boston: Houghton Mifflin and Company, 1889. First Edition, First Printing. A Fine, Superior, tight (and apparently unread) copy of the first edition, first printing, of this collection of African-American stories by a female author, with illustrations by E. W. Kemble [who also illustrated Twain's "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin", and other books] in an about Fine example of the Rare Dust Jacket (short tear to the front panel's top edge, scattered foxing, small area of surface wear to the rear panel's lower left). During her life and in her social circle, a woman working as a writer was seen as inappropriate. Consequently, Dana published under the pen name Olive A. Wadsworth which stood for "Only A. Woman". As this work was published posthumously, it was published under her given name, making it the first of her works so published. [The story "Our Phil" and the "Other Stories" in this book first appeared in the Atlantic Monthly under her pen name.] The book is in Fine, Superior, condition with hardly any wear, and comes in an excellent example of the RARE DUST JACKET with surprisingly minor wear -- only the second copy in the dust jacket that we ever have seen. The viewer will notice, of course, that the dust jacket is plain as it is from the period when jackets were used not to sell the book but only to keep the book clean until put out for sale. Virtually all of the dust jackets for the book would have been discarded. The viewer also will see that the jacket's spine panel was long ago torn at its top edge to reveal the book's ti … [Click Below for Full Description]

1889. Two color printed papercut portraits of a young boy and girl; both fully dressed by hand in original contemporary clothing (including buttons and beads), and with what appears to be actual curled locks of human hair. Each dressed portrait measures about 17" high and is neatly laid-down on a background color landscape print measuring about 14.5" x 19.5". In a near-contemporary wood frame, glazed (16.5" x 21.5"). The wood frame is darkened and rubbed at the edges, very good; not examined out of the frame. The papercut portraits are printed in four colors (black, blue, green, yellow); the boy with green eyes and the girl with blue eyes. The children's curled locks, likely taken from a boy and girl, are each distinct: the boy with more tightly curled auburn-colored hair; and the girl with loosely curled lighter-colored hair. The boy is dressed in a black linen jacket with white trim and mother of pearl buttons; the girl is dressed in a white dress with fine woven silk and white lace trims. She also is wearing a bracelet of tiny glass beads. The three dimensionality of the boy and girl is enhanced by their forward looking gaze and the way in which both are positioned upon the background print (also printed in multiple colors): as standing in a garden with flowers in full bloom and mountain scenery in the distance. An unusual custom-made American portrait, featuring fine contemporary cloth and lace work, and contemporary locks of hair skillfully styled in both tight and loose curls.

Sherman, William Tecumseh
On May 10, 1889, Civil War Union General William Tecumseh Sherman penned this chatty letter to his friend, Margaret Lee Middleton. He writes that he and his daughter, Lizzie have “just returned from a dinner party at Mr. Arnold’s on 12th St. where we met old and valued friends” including “Ex Senator Henderson & wife of St. Louis”. Sherman is most likely referring to John B. Henderson (1826-1913) the US Senator from Missouri who was a co-author of the Thirteenth Amendment, the amendment that abolished slavery. Sherman then goes on to say that though Saturday is his “usual Club night”, he “will forgo that and call at no. 33. W 19th at or about 7:30”. Margaret Middleton lived at 33 West 19th St. in New York City, as is evidenced by the included original transmittal envelope. William Tecumseh Sherman (1820-1891) served in the US military for a number of years before resigning to spend more than a decade as a banker, businessman, and superintendent of a military academy. He rejoined the military for the US Civil War, becoming one of its most famous generals for leading Union troops across the south in "scorched earth" campaigns. After the War, he continued his military career and was promoted to General of the Army, his troops primarily fighting Native Americans along the wagon trails and railroads. In retirement, he was a constant presence at New York's theatres, lectures, and galleries, and also occasionally thrilled audiences at speaking engagements. Margaret Lee Middleton (1848-1921) was a Manhattan socialite, who was a skilled and respected genealogist and librarian for man … [Click Below for Full Description]

Various, 1889. Large folio. Half leather ruled in gilt and paper covered boards. Boards stained and rubbed, internal foxing, some fading to some images but overall very good. 114 mostly larger albumen prints, mounted on card leaves (between one and four to a page; usually two), and numbered on the leaves below the image (the album is numbered to 120, with space left for the other six images, but those spaces are unnumbered and with no evidence that the images were ever mounted in the volume). Image sizes range mostly between 4" x 6" and 9" x 12". A fair number of the images have captions in the image, many others are captioned in ink on the mount. A wonderful album that begins in Portugal with nine images of the Coast of Funchal in Madeira (harbor views, various images of the public gardens, "bullock cart," and two men bearing a woman lying in a hammock), nine of Tenerife in the Canary Islands (La Laguna, Mount Teide, harbor views with ships, massive dragon tree,), and the Azores (two photos creating a panorama of the Ponta Delgada harbor, Church of St. Sebastian, hot springs, baths at Furnas); and then extends to several islands in the West Indies including 23 of Trinidad (Port of Spain, dock views, ice house, botanical gardens, date palms, government house, water works, and pitch lakes), 21 of Bermuda ("Devil's Hole" on the north coast, Mullet Bay in Tucker's Town, lily fields, stone quarry, floating dock, Princess Hotel), 17 of Jamaica (Kingston Harbor, Kingston street scenes, fruit sellers, barracks at Newcastle, Hamilton sugar workers), nine of Barbados (Bridgetown, ca … [Click Below for Full Description]

YEATS, W B
London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Co., 1889. London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Co.,, 1889. Inscribed by Yeats to "the poet of the North Countrie", Joseph Skipsey Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt, black coated endpapers. House in a blue quarter morocco slipcase. Short tear to fore edge of the front free endpaper, corners bumped but an excellent copy. First edition, first issue, a major literary association copy, inscribed by Yeats on the front free endpaper, "To the poet of the North Countrie, Joseph Skipsey, with the author's kind regards". In addition, Yeats has made minor corrections to the text on four pages. The inscription shows Yeats's admiration for the Newcastle pitman poet, whom he honours in the manner of a maker of the old minstrel ballads. Joseph Skipsey (1832-1903) had been orphaned during a bitter strike and sent down the pits at the age of seven. Self-educated, he moved between the world of the collieries and fitful employment in the literary world, where various patrons impressed by his poetic output tried to find him a suitable post. In 1889, the presumed year of this presentation, "a glittering company, including Burne-Jones, Browning, Tennyson, William Morris, and Lord Leighton", sponsored Skipsey to become custodian of Shakespeare's house at Stratford upon Avon. But "Skipsey, deeply knowledgeable about Shakespeare's works, could not endure being 'a common showman' of counterfeit relics to troupes of tourists (Bradley) and he returned to the Northumberland pits in 1891" (ODNB). An unpublished letter from Yeats to Skipsey is discu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bishop & Goldie state, in their entry for this work, that the 3 chapters that conclude this 1889 edition, "Convalescence, What is a Nurse, and Minding Baby" were not introduced until the 1914 "War Time" edition... obviously, they are in error.

[PRAYERS - CHRISTIAN - MAORI].
He inoi ma nga tamariki.[Napier?, printed by Robert Coupland Harding?, 1889?]. 8vo (18 x 12.5 cm). Single leaf, printed on 1 side. [1], [1 blank] pp. Rare leaflet containing five Christian prayers for children in the Maori language, an offprint of a page from an almanac ("Maramataka mo te tau") probably for the year 1890. Robert Coupland Harding (1849-1916), "New Zealand's first and most eminent typographer" (McKenzie), printed these almanacs for the years 1883 to 1890 and 1892, so presumably also the separate leaves of prayers, as the catalogue of the Alexander Turnbull Library suggests. The present one opens with a quotation from Luke 11:1 and an introductory paragraph, followed by the title in capitals, which translates as "A prayer for the children". The prayers themselves are presented under three numbered headings: I for little children (with one prayer for the morning and one for the afternoon), II for children above age 10 (with the same) and III for the beginning of school.With a couple creases (one through the corner of the text), some minor foxing and a few small marginal tears, chips or holes. A rare Maori leaflet with prayers for children. Books in Maori 1246; Williams, supp. 779a; WorldCat (3 copies); for Coupland Harding: McKenzie, "Harding, Robert Coupland", in: DNZB (online ed.).
