City of Dreadful Night (1891) is the first published edition with "Printed at the 'Pioneer' Press, Allahabad." at the bottom of p 108; Kipling forced the destruction of an unauthorized earlier edition and was partially successful in supressing this edition as well. Wee Willie Winkie (1889) is identified as the "Second Edition." In Black and White (1890) is identified as the "Third Edition." Wrappers and pages are clean and in nice shape with some light toning; the rear wrapper of City is missing. There are old pencilled notes about the editions by a former bookselle in the forematter.

GILLES DE LA TOURETTE (Georges)
Paris, E. Plon, Nourrit et Cie, 1891 (vol.1), 1895 (vol.2 & 3). 3 volumes in-8, demi-chagrin aubergine, dos à 5 nerfs plats ornés de filets à froid, titres dorés, tranches mouchetées (reliure uniforme de l'époque), xv, 582 p., (1) f. ; (4), 556 p., portrait frontispice gravé et (4), 607 p. Edition originale, rare ensemble complet des trois volumes publiés entre 1891 et 1895, illustrée d’un portrait de Charcot, auteur de la préface, et de nombreuses figures. Interne de Charcot, puis son chef de clinique à La Salpetrière, Gilles de la Tourette livre dans cet ouvrage une synthèse complète de la doctrine de son maître, une récapitulation historique et critique de ce qui a été écrit sur l'hystérie et une réfutation méthodique des objections de ses adversaires. Conformément à l’approche de Charcot, il défend une approche organique et physiologique de l’hystérie qui peut atteindre les femmes comme les hommes, approche qui s'oppose à celle de ses rivaux de Nancy pour lesquels l'étiologie de la maladie est à rechercher dans le psychisme. C'est avec le plus célèbre des élèves de Charcot, Sigmund Freud, que s'opérera le changement sémiotique décisif dans l’étude de l’origine de l’hystérie par l’élaboration de la théorie de l'inconscient. Cf. Jacques Lacan, Séminaire ‘Les formations de l'inconscient’, 1957-1958 (passim). (Ellenberger, ‘Découverte de l’inconscient’, p.628. Heirs of Hippocrates, n°2188. P. Morel, ‘Dict.

Chile]
1891. Overall very good, but varies from fair to fine, most somewhat browned, larger sheets with edge tears, a few sheets with a few letters missing, one image torn through, a few with faint print, a few with ragged edges.. [303] pp. 5.5 x 7.5 inches to 21 x 29 inches. Despite becoming one third larger in 1883 and much richer with its victory over Peru and Bolivia, Chile could not use its wealth and lavish public spending to insure against civil unrest. A combination of secular and religious battles and conservative versus liberal thinking came to a head in 1891, when Manuel Balmaceda, who had succeeded Santa Maria as president in 1886, refused to share power and patronage with both the opposition and members of his own party, who became divided over Balmaceda's attempt to select his successor. When the Chilean Congress refused to approve Balmaceda's budget for 1891 unless he formed a cabinet with their approval, he unilaterally declared he would use the prior year's budget for 1891. The congressionalists rebelled, backed by the powerful Chilean navy, land owners, and large foreign enterprises, established a government in the port of Iquique, and with better leadership and easy access to capital, defeated the loyalist army at Placilla and Concon. Balmaceda fled to the Argentine embassy for safety. The day after his term officially expired, he committed suicide. This collection contains rare "street" publications covering the entire period of the revolution, from the day the first shot was fired, on 16 January 1891 until after Balmaceda's suicide, though the bulk concern … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Strand Magazine was a monthly magazine composed of fictional stories and factual articles founded by George Newnes. It was first published in the United Kingdom from January 1891 to March 1950 running to 711 issues. Its immediate popularity is evidenced by an initial sale of nearly 300,000. Sales increased in the early months, before settling down to a circulation of almost 500,000 copies a month which lasted well into the 1930s. Features included in these volumes include Queen Victoria's Dolls, Types of English Beauty, The Handwriting of Charles Dickens, Dinner at the Zoo, The Handwriting of John Ruskin. Other contributors to the magazine have included P. G. Wodehouse, Margery Allingham, Agatha Christie, E. Nesbit, Rudyard Kipling, Dorothy L. Sayers, H.G.

LYSTER, E. A. (ed.)
London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1891. Octavo. Original black cloth, gilt lettered spine, front cover titled in yellow with dragon motif and seal or "chop", pale orange coated endpapers. Portrait frontispiece with tissue-guard. Spine gently rolled and touch of wear to extremities, light discolouration of cloth, top edge dust toned, faint marks to fore edge, front inner hinge just starting yet a very good copy. Portrait frontispiece with tissue-guard. First edition. Thomas Lyster (1840-1865) was an Anglo-Irish British Army officer and aide to Gordon during his Chinese service. The work, compiled by Lyster's sister, contains a memoir, letters from his numerous commissions in China, of condolence to the family from Gordon and others, and a laudatory "Memorandum Respecting the Services of the Late Lieutenant Lyster, Royal Engineers", provided by Gordon. Lyster first arrived in China in August, 1862, and was active both in a military role during the Taiping Rebellion, and in surveying the countryside around Shanghai, which was previously undocumented by the British. His health declined in 1865, and he was sent home by the Medical Board in August, dying on the journey back to Ireland. Together the correspondence provides a fascinating insight into the day-to-day activities organising the "Ever Victorious Army", including visits to Nankin, "the great rebel stronghold", and their reception by the Imperial General. This work is uncommon, with only six traced institutionally on Copac. [Attributes: First Edition]

GISSING, George (1857-1903)
London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1891. First edition, one of fewer than 1000 copies of the first issue. 3 volumes, 8vo. Half-titles. With the advertisement leaf at end of vol. 1. Original morocco-grained green cloth, titles gilt-lettered on spine, and in blind on front covers, cream endpapers; velveteen-lined morocco-backed folding case. Item #401338 The threats and opportunities of mass culture. Gissing's masterpiece about London literary life in the 1880s, its title referencing London's neighborhood of poor, struggling, lowly writers. James Joyce compared Gissing's inelegant style to a "Triestine noodle and bean soup," and though Gissing neared the hack-ish writers populating his book, his empathy for the disenfranchised characters - and particularly women - keeps him relevant. As does his penchant for suffering, risk and pain that all add up to a search for truth: a space he gained not from an MFA or the right family name, but from doing the work. George Packer wrote that Gissing had only one subject: "the cost of poverty and social isolation to people of intelligence and sensitivity ... Orwell said, 'Gissing's novels are a protest against the form of self-torture that goes by the name of respectability,' but the protest is muted by the fact that Gissing himself partly craved respectability. He might have been a socialist if he'd had more money; instead, the vision is of endurance and defeat.

E. Ferguson'. There is gold gilt lettering and detailing to the spines with black roan labels and the initials J. E. F. at the foot os the spine. There is some minor rubbing and fading to the spines, especially the edges, but otherwise the bindings are nicely preserved and in lovely condition.

Boston, Mass: Christian Science Publishing Society. Extremely rare original issues of the Christian Science Journals that still have the original "tip-in" sheets. One might ask, why are these so important? And, "What is a 'tip-in' sheet?" When an issue of the CS Journal was going to publication, and Mrs. Eddy wished to include something at the very last minute, when the particular issue was already typeset for publication, the only reasonable method for inclusion was through the insertion of a "tip-in" sheet.

Now, obviously, this was information that was deemed quite important at the time, as the process required manual intervention, and slowed down what was essentially an automated process. Even historically, today, many of these "tip-in" sheets have vital importance to understanding much of what Mary Baker Eddy's intent was concerning important issues for the cause of Christian Science. One of these critical sheets was in the July, 1891 issue of the Christian Science Journal, perhaps the most important one she ever had inserted.

The "tip-in" sheet illustrated that she thought such a move was wrong, and that her students were entirely capable of selecting their own reading material. Now, one might ask, "What's t … [Click Below for Full Description]
