        [Broadside]: Grand Military Entertainment by St. Joseph's College Battalion, Wednesday Eve, Nov. 18, in The College Auditorium

      [No place - Rensselaer, Indiana: St. Joseph's College?. 1891?]. Broadside. Approximately 8.5" x 11.75". Old folds, small tears and nicks, old and small pencil name ("Lizzie"), very good. No publishing information, our best guess (and it is a guess, but based on some provenance) is that this broadside is from St. Joseph's College of Indiana, which was founded in 1889 by the Missionaries of the Precious Blood as a secondary school to educate Native Americans. OCLC locates no copies. .

        The Chronicles of Barsetshire (8 Volumes Complete)

      London: Chapman and Hall, Limited, 1891. Octavo, 8 volumes. Original three quarters leather over marbled boards, gilt toolin the the spine, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels. Marbled enpapers. In very good condition. The Chronicles of Barsetshire " revealed a new humorist and type of humour. No such picture of the special features of cathedral society had been given before, nor has anything so good been done since, excepting the corresponding portions of Barchester Towers and the rest of the Barsetshire novels…. These, however, are much more complex, Trollope having discovered that the same gifts which enabled him to portray clergymen were equally available for other classes of society. For humour, Barcester Towers perhaps stands first; for the suspense of painful interest, Framley Parsonage; for general excellence, The Last Chronicle of Barset. They stand at the head of his writings" (Sadleir, 245).

      1891. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1891. Original printed yellow wrappers. First Edition of Yeats's third book, following MOSADA (1886) and THE WANDERINGS OF OISIN (1889). Comprising a novella and a short story, this volume earned Yeats forty pounds at a time when he really needed it. Thirteen years later Yeats wrote that this book was "written when I was very young & knew no better."~This was issued as the tenth volume in Unwin's "Pseudonym Library," both in wrappers (as here) and in cloth. Symons (cited by Wade) stated that the first edition, published in November 1891, consisted of 2000 copies, of which 1644 were in wrappers and 356 were in cloth; however, since the first printing is known to have been done by September 1891, and since the British Library deposit copy and at least two presentation copies (all dated November 1891) were from Unwin's "Second Edition" of this work, it is now widely suspected that Symons's 2000-copy figure probably encompassed both the first and second printings. Although there were supposedly four times as many copies issued in wrappers than in cloth, today it is these wrappered copies that we find to be more elusive.~This is a near-fine copy, with the leaves entirely unopened. There is quite minor wrapper soil but scarcely any wear, and the first and last leaves have faint tape-stains. Very scarce in this condition. Wade 4.

        Improvements in Wind Engines. [British Patent] Number: 19,401. A.D. [Date of Application, 10th Nov., 1891 - Accepted, 12th Dec., 1891].

      London, Darling & Son, 1891. 8vo. Disbound. Stamp to p. 1. 1 p + 1 plate.. Scarce original printed patent for the world's first energy-generating wind-mill, the "Blyth Turbine", being the first wind turbine used to convert wind energy into power.Blyth's seminal invention marked the dawn of wind turbine development. Although previously credited with being the first to use a wind powered machine to generate electricity, it is now an accepted fact that the American inventor Charles Brush came second to Blyth and his wind mill. There were, of course wind mills before the time of Blyth, but these were used to pump water or grind grain, and Blyth's groundbreaking invention, described and patent for the first time here, is the first used to convert wind energy into power. Blyth experimentend, prompted by his friend Lord Kelvin, with three different turbine designs, which ultimately resulted in a 10-meter-high, cloth-sailed wind turbine, which was installed in the garden of his holiday cottage at Marykirk in Kincardineshire. He used the electricity it produced to charge accumulators, and the stored electricity was used to power the lights in his cottage, which thus became the first house in the world to be powered by wind-generated electricity. The wind turbine in Blyth's garden is said to have operated for 25 years."The first person to harness the wind to produce electricity was a Scotsman, James Blyth ('America reaps the wind harvest', 21 August). He first consulted his colleague, Lord Kelvin, about the possibility of using a windmill for the purpose. Kelvin thought it would be possible and urged Blyth to set up a large horizontal windmill at his holiday home in Marykirk near Montrose in 1888. Blyth lit his own house and offered to light the streets of Marykirk, but his offer was not accepted because the villagers thought electricity was the work of the devil. He did, however, provide emergency power for the local asylum."

Nietzsche here is essentially saying that the ""Genealogy"" is intended to be an elaboration of the ideas in ""Beyond Good & Evil"". Thus, it was very appropriate to bind these two texts together.. SCARCE: Publication of these early editions was privately paid for by Nietzsche and published in his lifetime. Less than 1, 000 copies of each were printed.. Condition: GOOD+. Rebound by an unknown source--but probably contemporary 1890s--in half-calf leather with marbled boards. Gilt rule outlines leather; gilt to one title ""Jenseits von Gut und Boese"" on spine; decorative light green endpapers that are slightly tanned in places and chipped in others (not original end papers); tanning to original pre-title papers; boards chipped and worn at edges; speckled treatment of page ends; title page of ""Jenseits"" tanned and chipped at edges; title page of ""Genealogie"" near perfect with just one smudge; little to no foxing; leather corners and edges of cover beautiful; ""Jenseits"": 269 pps.; ""Genealogie"": 182 pps. + 'Inhalt'.

        Damaris: A Play in Four Acts [Original Typed Script}

      [Sherborne, England], 1891. Paperback. Very Good. Paperback. Original typed manuscript of an unpublished play by Louis Napoleon Parker. Parker (1852-1944) was an important British dramatist and composer who was also well-known as a producer of civic and patriotic pageants. He was born in France and lived throughout Europe until, at age seventeen, he was sent to London';s Royal Academy of Music and stayed on. During his long career he was known for his successful adaptations of French and foreign plays, and is particularly remembered for his dramatization of W. W. Jacob';s story, "The Monkey';s Paw." He also was commissioned to write a play about Disraeli specifically for the actor George Arliss. Arliss toured in its production for several years and later starred in a film version. There is no record of this play, Damaris, ever having been published or produced. This copy was typewritten at "Miss Dicken';s Type Writing Office," with a few mss emendations. It was printed in four parts, each bound in its original brown wrappers with typed labels on the front covers. The cover of each part has the ownership inscription of the actress Alma Murray. Murray (1854-1945) was a successful and highly regarded English actress. This copy was undoubtedly given to her for her consideration. Some chipping and curling to wrapper covers, but in very good condition. Act I: 17 pages; Act II: 21 pages; Act III: 18 pages; Act IV: 17 pages. DRA/011312.

        J.S. Fry & Sons Sunny Hours Nursery Rhymes Book

      London, printed in Holland: Dean & Son, 1891. First Edition Presumed. Decorative. Very Good. What is a chocolate bar doing amidst antiquarian books? This is a chocolate bar that shouldn't melt. It is also one of the few books for which "scrumptious" might come to mind as a description. The illusion is convincing with this most edible-looking piece of faux candy! A binding that looks just like a chocolate bar divided into five pieces or smaller bars, each impressed with the Fry name. Fry is a company that traces its roots to 1761 and beloved especially for its Fry's Chocolate Creams. The company merged with Cadbury's in 1919, but the Fry brand name is still used for the Chocolate Creams and a few other products. Uncommon book, with only three copies located on OCLC (Princeton -- Cotsen Collection, Cambridge and Oxford). Title page, followed by 13 leaves, printing on rectos only, with nursery rhyme and charming chromolithographic illustrations on each of these pages. The nursery rhymes were probably original to this book -- they are not Mother Goose or other well-known nursery rhymes. Rear endpaper with ad for Fry's pure concentrated cocoa. Completing the binding's illusion of being a chocolate bar is that the edges of the leaves are painted a matching chocolate brown. Dimensions are 16 by 10 cm, 6.5 by 4 inches. A few small spots of rubbing, or surface abrasion, on the chocolate, not undermining the illusion. The leaves, bound with thread, have some looseness in the lower portion.
