Marbling. 8vo. later half red calf with marbled paper covered boards, five raised bands, top edge gilt (a signed binding by Zaehnsdorf). 224 pages with 5 leaves of single mounted marbled paper specimens + 5 leaves each with 6 mounted marbled paper specimens. Nach technisch-wissenschaftlichen grundlagen bearbeitet von Josef Halfer, Buchbinder in Budapest. II. Verbesserte und vermehrte auflage. Mit anhang verzierung der buchsnitte. Text in German. Second edition--the first to be illustrated--of this seminal work on marbling by the Budapest based bookbinder and marbler, Josef Halfer. It was first published, without specimen papers in 1885. "The Halfer system is so important that marbling history is broken at this point, and referred to as pre-Halferian and post-Halferian marbling. The advantages of the Halfer system were two-fold: freed of the laborious preparation of colors, and with standardized colors, marblers could produce more work; and secondly, the use of carragheen size allowed finer detail in marbling" (Easton, Marbling, A History, pp. 78-9). See also R. Wolfe, Marbled Paper, 1990, pp. 124-30. From the reference library of the Zaehnsdorf Company with a commemorative booklabel loosely inserted. With the bookplate of the Zaehnsdorf Company. Tipped-in is a two page A.L.S. written by Richard Leo (see publisher), dated January 26, 1891. Addressed to a Mr. Zaehnsdorf, the A.L.S. expresses Leo's desire to leave Stuttgart and visit Zaehnsdorf. Rubbed along hinges and soiled along edges.

        A BRAVE BLACK REGIMENT or THE HISTORY OF THE MASSACHUSETTS 54TH REGIMENT

      1891, first edition hardcover, A BRAVE BLACK REGIMENT or THE HISTORY OF THE MASSACHUSETTS 54TH REGIMENT combined with six letters and envelopes, sent to Capt. Luis F Emilio, along with a signature of Captain Luis Emilio, dated October 4th, 1864, Morris Island, South Carolina, all as shown.  Emilio was the ranking officer after the charge at Battery Fort Wagner, Morris Island, South Carolina against the Confederate Rebel Army defending the Charleston area.  Two of the envelopes have the words "Colored Regiment" on the address and are sent to Emilio at Port Royal, South Carolina.  [Of 700 letters found in his archives, only these two had "Colored Regiment" on them].  The three letters all contain very important critical information concerning the famous African American regiment.  First letter mentions the actual attack and charge on Fort Wagner and how Capt. Emilio escaped unharmed.  Also mentioned in this letter is his offer of a Majors commission in another regiment in SC that he in fact refuses and stays for three more years with the 54th and fights in many incredibly dangerous engagements.  Another letter mentions the back pay now received by the colored soldiers and how their families must of suffered of want during the long wait for equal pay.  All are historic  letters that include references to Abraham Lincoln, Governor Andrews (four times), Capt./Colonel Robert Shaw, Lt. Col. Wendell Holmes of the 20th Mass., Col. Littlefield, Capt./Lt. Col./Colonel Hallowell, Captain Coggswell, Capt. Dave Sawyer, Capt. Alfred F Walcott, and other historic information.  Rare first edition hardcover volume is in very good condition overall, the letters are laid in on back of frontispiece which has been replaced with a facsimile of Medal of Honor recipient William Harvey Carney who saved the flag during the charge made famous in the movie "Glory".  Other letters are laid in on front fly and second fly.  Old embossed stamp states the book was once the property of Dr. I Victor Rouge.  All else is complete, tight, very good, one small nip to spine that has an old repair, small spot on cover boards, other light imperfections.  All is now protected in a Mylar wrap.  All fold out maps and a complete roster of the 54th are included.  Luis F Emilio served in the Mass 23rd and then was requested by Colonel Shaw to join the 54th.  Any officer of a colored regiment was given no quarter by Confederates.  Brave soldiers and officers indeed, and certainly staunch abolitionists who fought with much valor.  Ask any questions.

        THE YOUNG BUGLERS

      1891. A Tale of the Peninsular War. With Eight Illustrations by John Proctor and Eleven Plans of Battles. London: Griffith Farran & Co., n.d. Original aqua blue cloth pictorially decorated in black, green and red, all page edges gilt. Early edition of Henty's third book for boys -- an edition not specifically cited by Newbolt. This title was originally published in late 1879 (but dated 1880) by "Griffith and Farran". In 1887 and again in 1891 (but both undated), there were editions published by "Griffith, Farran, Okeden & Welsh" -- the latter of which appeared soon thereafter in this glorious pictorial binding. (Newbolt speculates that this binding was issued for that purpose -- to stimulate sales by imitating the handsome Henty bindings then being produced by the rival publishing firm Blackie & Son.) The closest entry in Newbolt to this one is 7.4 -- as it describes this binding (though the cloth is "olive-green"), but with GFO&W on the title page. The Newbolt supplement lists a "7.4-A" which is closer still to this copy -- as that entry has "Griffin Farran & Co." on the title page (as here); however, that entry mentions that although the printer's slug on the final page of text is identical to this copy's ("Gilbert & Rivington, Ld., St. John's House, Clerkenwell Road, London", on that copy it is followed by a date in 1891 whereas this copy bears no such date.~Suffice it to say that this is an early reprint of the first edition, probably from 1891-1892. This is a fine, bright copy -- and is extremely scarce thus. See Newbolt 7.4 and 7.4-A.

        American Football

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1891. First edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. With 31 photographs of stars from Harvard, Princeton and Yale. In near fine condition with a touch of wear to the extremities. Walter Camp is credited with having revolutionized the game of American football during his years as athletic director and head advisory football coach at Yale in the late 1880s. "Team play was his great objective, and his strategic ability contributed much to the development of its technique. An even greater contribution came from his love of clean sportsmanship… He created a literature of the game in books, magazines, and newspapers… A memorial erected at the Yale Bowl, financed by his admirers in many colleges and schools, bears testimony to the respect and affection in which he was held" (DAB).
