Dickinson, Emily; Todd, Mabel Loomis (Editor); Higginson, T.W. (Editor)

CARROLL, Lewis.
London: Macmillan and Co., 1889 [1891]. Tall octavo. Original cream cloth-backed cream glazed pictorial boards, title to front cover red and black. A little wear to extremities, light foxing to endpapers, boards toned and slightly soiled, a minor loss to lower fore corner; a very good copy. Colour frontispiece with tissue-guard, 19 colour illustrations after John Tenniel. First edition, second issue ("The People's edition"), priced at two shillings on the title page. The original printing of this condensed version of Alice for younger readers was discarded by Dodgson in much the same way as its 1865 predecessor. Dodgson rejected the entire first edition of 10,000 copies in 1889, which was printed on toned paper, on the grounds that the pictures were "far too bright and gaudy". The first 4,000 rejected sheets were sent to America for publication under the imprint of Macmillan & Co. of New York, and a second edition of 10,000 copies was prepared for the UK in 1890. The most notable alteration in the second editions was the printing of the sheets on white rather than toned paper and the altered illustration of Alice and the Cheshire Cat on p. 34, removing Alice's profile. After the publication of the second edition, the remainder of the first printing sheets, retaining the original illustration of Alice and the Cheshire Cat on p. 34, were bound up to form the "People's Edition" of 1891, priced at two shillings, as in this copy. In 1896 copies of this issue were withdrawn from sale and offered to hospitals. Uncommon thus, with only five copies traced at auction: copies are over … [Click Below for Full Description]

CARROLL, LEWIS. Alice's Adventures In Wonderland. London: Macmillan, 1891. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to one of his young friends, "Edith E. Lucy from the Author, Nov. 6, 1893." This edition, the eighth (84th thousand), contains an entirely reset "Mouse Tale" (page 37) and a new version of the illustration on page 91, which shows Alice as "faceless". Edith Lucy was one of Dodgson's logic students at the Oxford High School for Girls. The relationship with Edith continued until Dodgson's death. She helped him in making advertisements regarding spoiled copies of Looking-Glass, an edition he largely gave away, and also assisted him in preparing presentation copies of Sylvie and Bruno Concluded for shipment. Original cloth, slightly frayed, front hinge weak, overall, very good or a little better in a custom cloth clamshell box. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Eikokujin Burakku` [Black, Henry James][performance by] ; Fukushima, Shoroku [transcribed by].
Ginkado, Tokyo, 1891. `Story from a London Stage` - an adaptation of a Mary Braddon novel by Black. A `sokkibon` (transcribed oral tale) of a performance made in Japan by South Australian rakugo-ka (comedic storyteller) Henry James Black. The story itself is an adaptation of Mary Braddonfs 1877 short story `Her Last Appearance`, but is interspersed with explanations of Western customs for Black`s Japanese audience (McArthur, 2002). Some of the characters are also given Japanese names, and other aspects in the story are `Japanised` to a certain extent for the audience. Black often used famous English novels for the basis of his performances, and particularly favored works by Braddon, a popular English novelist of the Victorian era. Includes 13 (including 8 double-page) black and white woodblock- printed illustrations of scenes from the story and a portrait of Black. A scarce record of one of Black`s Japanese performances. Original fukurotoji (envelope) binding and boards, somewhat soiled and chipped, small stain and ex-ownership stamp to lower board, upper board lithographically printed. Spine repaired. Creasing, small tears, ex-ownership marks to end- and fly- papers. Repair to endpapers by an ex-owner. A few marks and some browning to text. 1 v., complete. 18.2x12cm. 218 p. First and only edition.

Kelmscott Press] Morris, William
Kelmscott Press, Hammersmith, 1891. Hardcover. One of 300 copies. Presentation copy inscribed by William Morris to Theodore Watts-Dunton on front free endpaper. Best known as the rescuer of Swinburne, Watts-Dunton was a respected literary critic and a friend to many in the Pre-Raphaelite circle, especially Rossetti. He was also a steady patron of the Kelmscott Pres. In his bibliography,of the press, William Peterson cites several presentation copies given to Watts-Dunton, including this one. An edition of Watts-Dunton's first book of poetry, The Coming of Love, had been planned for the Press, but it was never carried out (Peterson B4). This copy belonged to English poet and playwright John Drinkwater, with his leather bookplate on the front pastedown and his ownership inscription in pen dated 1920 beneath Morris's inscription. Drinkwater published a critical study of William Morris in 1912. Poems by the Way was the second book printed by The Kelmscott Press, and the first printed in red and black. This marks the first appearance of many of the poems, one of which ("Goldilocks") was written especially for this book. Fine in limp vellum boards with gilt title to spine. Ribbon ties are detached, but three of the four are laid in. As Peterson notes in his bibliography, the book ties are the most fragile part of Kelmscott books, and they are broken on many copies (Peterson xxxvi). Slight darkening to spine and light spotting to boards. Offsetting from bookplate to facing page, else the interior is clean and bright. The first page features a wide vine border and large initials ar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Morris, William
Hammersmith, London: Kelmscott Press, 1891. First Limited Edition. Full Vellum. Near Fine. One of 200 copies printed on hand-made paper in the Golden Type. The first book of the Kelmscott Press. 8vo. 21 by 14.5 cm. 188 pp. A lovely copy. The book once belonged to the Fine Arts Department at the University of Pittsburgh, but the only evidence of their former ownership is an extremely faint, small and shallow blindstamp on a blank prelim leaf (one with "a" printed) -- this inconspicuous impression, easy to miss, is neatly placed below the "a". Otherwise, typical, but moderate, fanning out of the vellum, with very light soiling on the vellum -- one might fairly regard this as age seasoning or toning as well. The leaves within have a touch of age toning along the edges. With the original string ties still preserved, with perhaps one slightly shortened.

VARIOUS, [DOYLE, Arthur Conan; VERNE, Jules; MORRISON, Arthur, et al.].
London: George Newnes, January 1891 to December 1895. [Literary Magazine] FIRST APPEARANCES. 10 volumes. Large octavo (24 x 18 x 43cm). Illustrated throughout. Original magazine parts bound in half-yearly volumes. Recent tan half calf with raised bands, gilt titles to spines and marbled boards. All edges speckled brown. Occasional spotting; very good. Contains the first appearance of the above mentioned Sherlock Holmes stories, plus 'The Adventure of the Cardboard Box' (volume V, 1893) which was not published in book form until 'His Last Bow' (1917). Several of these Holmes stories feature far more illustrations (notably by Sidney Paget) than in book form, and in some (such as 'Cardboard Box ') the illustrations are exclusive to 'The Strand'. Doyle also contributes the historical caper 'The Exploits and Adventures of Brigadier Gerard' (volumes VIII, IX and X). In addition, the set includes science fiction from Jules Verne; 'Dr Trifulgas' (volume IV, 1893), and 'An Express of the Future (volume X, 1895). Volumes VII-VIII feature the entire first series of cases for the consulting detective Martin Hewitt; probably the chief rival of Sherlock Holmes- indeed Morrison's ingenious crime stories were commissioned by 'The Strand' entirely due to an appetite for Doyle imitations. A superb literary magazine set.

STOLICZKA, Ferdinand (1838-1874); and others
London and Calcutta, 1891. Fifteen parts in two volumes, quarto. (14 1/2 x 10 7/8 inches). Detailed collations below. Publisher's upper wrappers for each part bound in. Later half green morocco and cloth covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, ruled and lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers The very rare complete natural history reports of an important government-sponsored expedition in India. The complete report in 15 parts was published between 1878-1891 and served as part of the official justification for what essentially had been a move in the "Great Game." In 1873, the second Yarkand mission under Sir Douglas Forsyth was sent by Lord Northbrook, Viceroy of India, to cement British and Indian relations with Yakub Beg, the ruler of Chinese Turkestan and an important figure in the buffer region between Russia and India. The mission was well-equipped, as befitted an official government attempt to impress a local ruler and it is said that the Ladakh economy took four years to recover from the losses incurred from the passage of the expedition. The mission set out from Rawalpindi to Leh via Murree, travelled past the Pangong Lake, Changchenmo and Karakash Valley onto Shahidulla and finally to Yarkand. They reached Kashgar in December 1873, and on March 17, 1874 began the return journey. They were to visit the Pamir and Afghanistan areas but the political situation prohibited the passage and the party returned to India via Ladakh. Ferdinand Stoliczka, the mission's geologist and naturalist, made good use of the opportunities offered and made ext … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dickinson, Emily
Roberts Brothers, Boston, 1891. This is a pair of books, which deserve to be kept together. Both are the ultra-rare gift binding of early Roberts Brothers publications, the first edition of the second series, dated 1891, and the eighth edition of the third series, dated 1892, with white leather spine and corners, paper-covered boards in floral pattern that matches the inside boards and the endpapers, and gilt page edges (here still bright all around). The second series book mentions the lesser-priced at the time cloth bindings, of $1.25 and $1.50; the added quality of this binding is evident in the original price of $3.50. Single copies of this partial-leather binding are rare, and this pairing even more so. Both books are unmarked and with no major flaws; some craquelure and flaking to the spines; the leather sections of the boards show wear and soiling, with small chips; Mylar protected.

ZOLA (Emile). Né à Paris. 1840-1902.
Zola oppose un refus à la demande de son correspondant, sans doute directeur de journal : .Je ne puis autoriser la publication de "Lourdes" dans aucun journal, avant que le roman ait été reproduit dans "la Revue Hebdomadaire", avec laquelle j'ai un traité ; ce qui repousse toute reproduction très loin.C'est en 1891, au cours d'un voyage avec sa famille dans les Pyrénées, que Zola découvre la ville de Lourdes où ont eu lieu, une trentaine d'année auparavant, les apparitions de la Vierge à Bernadette Soubirous. La découverte de cette ville et des malades et nécessiteux qui s'y pressent le bouleversent. Il conçoit donc le projet d'une trilogie des "Trois Villes", Lourdes, Rome et Paris, avec pour héros un prêtre, l'abbé Pierre Froment. Après sa publication en feuilleton dans le Gil Blas, le roman paraîtra le 25 juillet 1894. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

[Raphael] Williams, Mary E[lizabeth].
Boston, Little, Brown and Company, 1891. Large Folio (36.5 cm x 44 cm). 19 pages of text plus 16 plates. Illustrated Hardcover (green cloth with gilt lettering and ornament). The binding only slightly rubbed. Otherwise in excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Mary Elizabeth Williams, artist and author, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on January 12, 1825, the second daughter and youngest of three children born to Willard and Betsey (Osgood) Williams. She was the sister of Dr. Henry W. Williams (1821-1895), the celebrated eye doctor, and Abigail Osgood Williams (1823-1913), with whom she lived and traveled for much of her life. Her father died circa 1833 and her mother two years later; she and her sister apparently then went to live with Mary Osgood, a relative on her maternal side, at the Osgood farm in South Salem. Mary Elizabeth studied and taught art in Salem for many years. In 1860, she and her sister Abigail traveled to Rome, Italy, where they resided for 18 years (making an occasional return to their Salem home), studying and collecting art. Although primarily based in Rome during this period, Mary Elizabeth and Abigail traveled throughout Europe, visiting at some point England, Paris, Venice, and Florence. The two sisters took lessons in the Italian school of painting while in Rome, and made contact with many people of importance in the art world during this period. Upon their return, Mary Elizabeth and Abigail resided on Lafayette Street in Salem, where they ran a gallery of art in their house. In approximately 1894, they took a trip through … [Click Below for Full Description]

1891. Bellissimo album di cm. 36x28,5 in velluto marroncino con fregi e la scritta ?VILLA TOCCI? Raccolta di 23 grandi foto originali (cm. 18x23 circa) della villa, suoi interni, il giardino ecc. applicate su cartone pesante con targhetta, didascalia e cornice in oro. La villa, fatta costruire dal banchiere italiano Felice Tocci (editore dal 1891 dell?Eco d?Italia - Echo of Italy settimanale Italo-Americano) in seguito divenne di proprietà della famiglia di origini italiane Goggi, produttori di vino e ?American Champagne?, secondo il metodo italiano, con la sede in 754 Van Duzer Street in Stapleton. Dal 1932 divenne sede della St. Dorothy?s Academy, una scuola privata cattolica per ragazzi e ragazze. La villa fu demolita nel 1972. Villa Tocci on Staten Island gives to Southern Richmond a touch of Southern Italy. Mr. Felice Tocci, the owner, has developed his six acres of irregular surface into a charming setting for an attractive residence. The commodious house is of brick, stone and terracotta, and is designed on a ground plan of unusual convenience and attractiveness. The passer-by on the Old Town Road near Grasmere lifts his eyes to the peaceful Villa Tocci, crowning its grassy slope, and istinctively feels a desire to have just such a home on just such a site.

Heinrich, Hoffman.
[ London: circa 1891?]. Heinrich Hoffmann (1809-1894) was a German psychiatrist and author, best known for his work Der Struwwelpeter, an illustrated book that tells the (sometimes) horrific fates of disobedient children. He wrote under several pseudonyms, including ÒPolykarpus Gastfenger,Ó ÒHeulalius von Heulenburg,Ó and ÒHeinrich Hoffmann-Donner.Ó King Nut-Cracker was HoffmanÕs second childrenÕs book, written as a follow-up to Der Stuwwelpeter, and his only other work that achieved popularity. Hoffmann also wrote satires and poems (sometimes comedic) for adults, the former revealing his distaste for religious, philosophical, or political bigotry. Quarto. 28; 24 pp. Twenty-eight hand-colored illustrations, including title-page vignette, in Nut-Cracker. Twenty-four illustrated and hand-colored leaves, including title-page illustration, in Struwwelpeter. Text and illustrations printed on rectos only. Rebound at an early period, as is common for this title, in contemporary pebbled cloth over boards with green cloth backstrip, front board lettered in gilt.

WILDE, OSCAR
London: Ward, Locke, & Co., 1891. First edition. FIRST EDITION OF WILDE'S ONLY NOVEL; ARGUABLY HIS MOST ENDURING WORK. "In July 1890 Lippincott's Magazine published Wilde's first version of The Picture of Dorian Gray. His critic's interest in Stevenson's Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde induced the idea of age and its spiritual effects expressing themselves in the portrait whose model walks free of either... In Dorian Gray nature imitates art with--literally--a vengeance, when in knifing the portrait Dorian kills himself and becomes the final horror to which its successive changes have evolved. Dorian Gray himself became a name as immortal as those of Jekyll and Hyde, his picture in the attic baring his self-obsessed soul as vital a symbol as the 'madwoman in the attic', the discarded first wife established in Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre (1847). "The story itself, so far from vindicating art for art's sake, asks what it profiteth a man to gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul. His sexual sins, so far as we know them, are firmly heterosexual. He attracts two men, the artist Basil Hallward who has fallen in love with his appearance, and Lord Henry Wotton, whose scruples might be philosophically less nice than Hallward's but who never seems to go beyond repainting Dorian in epigrams. The fervent expression of Hallward's love (arguably the finest sentiment in the story) unleashed the venom of Wilde's Oxford classicist contemporary Samuel Henry Jeyes (1857-1911), who in the St James's Gazette (20 June 1890) demanded that the book be burnt and hinted that its author or … [Click Below for Full Description]

With a few occassional marginal annotation. Last ten leaves of volume 1 with a few tears.

For the present translation, he collaborated with the Hungarian civil servant Lukács Enyedi (1845-1906), who played a significant role in the promotion of economics as an independent discipline in Hungarian universities." (National Library of Scotland). The noted economist, politician and banker Gyula Kautz (1829-1909) made a lengthy introduction to the present work, which later was published separately. In it he describes Smith's life and work, and his position as the "founder of economic science", putting his work into its historical context and offering a critical appraisal of his significance and his influence on 19th century economics and political theorists. Kautz was governor-general of the central bank of Hungary (the Osztrák-Magyar Bank) from 1893-1900, and the economics department of Budapest … [Click Below for Full Description]

HUSSERL, E.G. - [HUSSERL'S FIRST MAJOR WORK]
Halle-Saale, C.E.M. Pfeffer (Robert Stricker), 1891. 8vo. Nice contemporary red half cloth with gilt title and gilt lines to spine. A very nice, clean, and fresh copy. XVI, 324 (last p. errata) pp. ¶ The very rare first edition of Husserl's first major work, "The Philosophy of Arithmetic".<br><br>Initially a student of mathematics, Husserl began attending Brentano's lectures on psychology and philosophy in Vienna and decided to devote himself primarily to philosophy. In 1887 he wrote "Über den Begriff der Zahl", on which his first proper scientific work which appeared four years later is based. In his "Philosophy of Arithmetic" he wishes to provide a sound foundation for mathematics by combining it with philosophy and psychology, here analyzing the psychological processes necessary for the concept of number, -a variant of the psychologism, he later came to criticize so severely. <br><br>The book was met with instant positivity and received much warm praise, though one person criticized it to bits: Gottlob Frege. <br>Frege who was one of the sharpest and most important logicians of the 19th century had shown that the sentences of arithmetic were analytical, and that arithmetic could be regarded as a branch of logic. He thus built the foundation of mathematical logistics. In spite of him being the chief logician of the 19th century, Frege was barely recognized in his lifetime, and he was barely read by his contemporaries. Husserl, however, did study him intensively, and we know for a fact that he knew all of Frege's works (at least until the year 1893), and it is likely that … [Click Below for Full Description]
