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]

II - VI], in the original light blue cloth with the illustration in black looking down London's Strand, with the title letters suspended on telegraph wires by the Victorian artist and designer George Charles Haité.

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. 'New Grub Street' carries it to almost unbearable intensity (George Packer, "The Struggling Writer: George Gissing Had It Right," New York Times Book Review, 13 October 1991, p. 1).

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. So, in order to include what she wished, the staff in the publishing house had to manually insert, and glue a page in--usually inside the front cover--with the information she wished to have included. 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. This came about as a result of an article penned in the May, 1891 CS Journal, establishing what was called the "General Association for the Dispensing of Literature." 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]

1891. Frege, Dr. G. (Gottlob.) FUNCTION UND BEGRIFF. Vortrag gehalten in der Sitzung vom 9. Januar 1891 der Jenaischen Gesellschaft für Medicin und Naturwissen-schaft. Jena: Verlag von Hermann Pohle, 1891. Near fine in the original gray wrappers printed in black. The front and rear wrappers have recently been professionally re-attached and there is a small restoration on the upper corner of the front wrapper. The title page has an ownership signature in ink at the top and several of the text pages have penciled marginal notations. Gottlob Frege (1848-1925) is now acknowledged to have made the most important advances in logic since Aristotle although his work was slow to gain understanding and acceptance by his contemporaries. Function und Begriff, generally translated as Function and Concept, is one of a series of articles that Frege wrote after his publication of Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik (The Foundations of Arithmetic, 1884) in which he had put forth the basis of his axiomatic theory of arithmetic by considering the questions: What are numbers? and What is the nature of arithmetical truth? These successive papers were written to extend and provide further rigor to the ideas in the Grundlagen. This paper introduces Frege's two main innovations since his major work, the Begriffsschrift of 1879, the notion of 'sense' and his 'Basic Law V,' both too arcane to explicate in this brief paragraph even were we able. Function und Begriff is also recognized as being the earliest traceable kernel of the ideas that lead to the modern formalisms of functional grammars and to the Ch … [Click Below for Full Description]

Oscar Wilde
Here is a stunning leather binding of the 1st Edition of Oscar Wilde's lord Arthur saviles crime and other stories, published London 1891. The binding was outstanding at one time, although there's no binders name I feel it was one of the best, maybe sangorski? But alas is seen better days and is offered for restoration, both boards are detached, the spines in parts missing, leathers been eaten in places, as has the silk endpapers. The inner book/pages are in good condition, with a tiny bit of foxing. Gilded foredges are good. Would of been a phenomenal binding of the highest quality and art - sadly seen better days :-).

Wilde, Oscar
1891. Ricketts, Charles. London: James R. Osgood, McIlvaine and Co., 1891. Original salmon paper-covered boards decorated in dark red. First Edition. "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime" is an amusing but macabre tale (if there can be such a thing) about a young man who, convinced by Lady Windermere's cheiromantist that he is doomed to commit murder, does his best to do so prior to getting married -- out of a sense of duty to his fiancée. In addition to the title story, this book includes "The Sphinx Without a Secret," "The Canterville Ghost" and "The Model Millionaire." The binding of this title, with decorations by Charles Ricketts, is extremely delicate -- paper-covered flexible boards; although 1500 copies were issued, we find this book to be quite uncommon, and we have never seen a truly fine copy. This copy is very good-plus to near-fine, with a bit of the darkening and wear of the spine that is typical for this fragile book. Mason 345.
