TOLSTOY, Leo.
London Walter Scott, 1889. First U.K. edition translated directly from the original Russian; 4 vols, 8vo, (19 x 13 cm); footnotes by Dole, age-mottling to endpapers, a few spots reaching half-titles and titles, otherwise crisp and bright, possibly unread; near-contemporary half calf over marbled boards with all edges marbled to match, bound without advertisements in rear, as was common, later but complementary lettering-pieces to spines, small, period shelf labels to upper paste-downs, rubbed, a few marks but otherwise most attractive. Henry Vizetelly is credited with publishing the 'true first U.K. edition' three years earlier in 1886, the same pivotal year that 'Anna Karenina' was also published. However his earlier version was not translated directly from the original Russian but from a French translation and it was a slightly abridged version, omitting philosophical passages and the second epilogue. This was rivalled by another translation from the French into English but the edition here is the first U.K. edition translated directly from the Russian original. First published in parts, 'Voyna i mir' was fully available in book form already in 1869 - but in Russian only. Tolstoy himself was partly responsible for the English tardiness in accepting his works. In 1878 W. R. S. Ralston wanted to acquaint English readers with 'War and Peace' and asked Tolstoy to provide some explanatory notes and biographical data. Tolstoy replied: 'I am very sorry not to be able to give you a satisfactory answer to your letter. The reason of it is that I very much doubt my being an author o … [Click Below for Full Description]

It is unnumbered in the "Japanese Fairy Tale Series," possibly due to the length of the book. Takejiro Hasegawa is listed in the colophon, inside the back cover. This book is in good to very good condition -- overall showing light wear and aging.

In the first years of modernization in the Ottoman army, the army was tried to be compared to Napoleon's army, and its regulations were translated and organized accordingly. Some regulations, memoranda and "layiha"s were translated from French.

Since the arrival of Major Goltz in 1883, German training guides and some German instructions were translated into Turkish for use in military schools. One of the most important instructions translated into Turkish was this book includes the basic military issues. Second Edition.

HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT: CASE, LOCKWOOD & BRAINARD. GOOD. From 1889, this is Register and Manual of the State of Connecticut for that year. Printed by Order of the Legislature by Case, Lockwood & Brainard Co., Hartford. Sized 8x5 inches, bound in terra cotta colored cloth, gilt titles. With 448 pages. Some foxing. A complete listing of all state officials in that year, great for genealogy. And a town by town description. For example, Bridgeport is described as a center for manufacturing sewing machines, metallic cartridges, brass goods, heavy forgings, malleable iron, steel and general hardware, etc. Interesting at the time Bridgeport had a Grand List 4 times bigger than Greenwich, which is termed "a resort for city people during the summer." There was a stage that ran daily between downtown Greenwich and the Banksville section, as well as Port Chester. There was an extensive railroad system in 1889. One could journey from any Connecticut town or city to any other CT city by rail. Not so today. [Attributes: First Edition]

Dana, Katharine Floyd
1889. Very Good. Dana, Katharine FloydOur Phil, and Other Stories [In the Rare Dust Jacket] Boston: Houghton Mifflin and Company, 1889. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 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 viewe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kipling, Rudyard
1889. Allahabad: Published by Messrs. A.H. Wheeler & Co., n.d.[1889]. 2 preliminary pp + 7 pp undated ads. Original decorated cream wrappers. First Edition of this collection of eight early Indian tales by Kipling -- one of only 1,500 copies published as No. 3 in Wheeler's Indian Railway Library, priced at one rupee. The first four volumes of the Indian Railway Library, all by Kipling, were (per the ads) satires of "the four main features of Anglo-Indian Life, viz: the Military [SOLDIERS THREE], the Domestic [THE STORY OF THE GADSBYS], the Native [IN BLACK AND WHITE] & the Social [UNDER THE DEODARS]." Seven of these eight stories had appeared earlier in 1888 in "Week's News"; the last one ("On the City Wall") had not previously appeared anywhere. According to Richards this undated first edition was published in January 1889 (before Richards's amazing bibliography came out in 2010, this book's date was generally posited as 1888); there were also a "second [Indian] edition" dated 1889 and a "third" dated 1890, and after that (undated but 1890) came the first of numerous editions printed in England that add Sampson Low's imprint. This copy is complete in the original cream wrappers (all of the other Kipling Indian Railway titles appeared in greyish-green wrappers), and is in remarkably near-fine condition (bottom inch of spine chipped away, a small ink-spot on the fore-edge, but otherwise without wear or soil). Quite uncommon in this condition. Richards A16; Stewart 37. Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise. Provenance: bookplate (in the c … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Trotz der völligen Umgestaltung, welche das vorliegende Buch in seiner zweiten Auflage erfahren musste, hat sich auch dieses Mal an vielen Punkten eine Neubearbeitung herausgestellt.

New York: Scribner s, 1889. FIRST EDITION. Presentation copy inscribed by Adams: For Aunt Eunice with the warmest regards of Henry Adams 1889. Adams s History of the United States is the author s most important work and the book that made the author s reputation, along with his autobiographical Education of Henry Adams. The present two-volume history of Jefferson s first administration is the initial book in the series, which ultimately filled nine volumes. By general consent these volumes placed Adams in the first rank among American historians (DAB). His analyses of American society and politics and his insightful criticisms of modern Western culture assures his continued relevance and importance.

Marx, Karl; Moore, Samuel (Translator); Aveling, Edward (Translator); Engels, Frederick (Editor)
New York: The Humboldt Publishing Company, 1889. First Thus. First thus. (Cloth single-volume issue published around the time of a four-volume paperback issue, priority unknown. Ads in rear dated June 1889; apparently various uncatalogued states of these ads exist, as do later printings by Humboldt with horizontal black-banded bindings and plain endpapers. Perhaps the second American edition [The Ahearns think it's more likely the first edition] but definitely the first to be actually printed in the USA. Draper 129. PMM 359.) xviii, 506, (33, ads) pp. Original maroon buckram ruled in black, spine lettered in gilt, patterned endpapers. About Very Good with dampstaining and discoloration to spine, corners slightly bumped and light rubbing along bottom edge of cloth, inexpert glue repair to hinge at front, a few marginal notes in easily-erasable pencil throughout. Gilt fairly bright. A rare early American edition of Marx's groundbreaking work of political economy Das Kapital, a spark which would eventually ignite many of the largest conflagrations of the 20th century. About Very Good.
