      Chicago, Published By The Ritual Committee 1892 - Period Limp Leather binding (ironically with David Einhorn listed on the front cover as the author!), 12mo, 260, 140 pages.The scarce true first edition, quickly recalled after publication by the Reform movement because of opposition led by the Einhorn wing. "Rabbi Wise's intent notwithstanding, Minhag America was not universally accepted. Neither was the first draft of the Union Prayer Book (UPB), the prayer book which the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) planned to publish based on Minhag America. For by the time the CCAR was ready to release the Union Prayer Book in 1892, a more radically Reform wing, led by Rabbi David Einhorn of Baltimore, had the votes to change the CCAR's direction away from its centrist origins. The 1892 version of the UPB was actually recalled, at considerable expense; its replacement, published in 1895 as the ‘first edition’ of theUnion Prayer Book, was more in keeping with the tenets of Classical Reform" (Stevens, in Reform Judaism, 2006)].

        Uncle Tom's Cabin.

      - Cambridge: Riverside Press, 1892. 2 vols., 8vo, lviii, 309; ix, 382 pp. Signed on the title page of Volume I by the author, and with lengthy autograph quotations signed tipped to the half-title pages of both volumes, each dated October 17, 1894. Full brown suede, decorative stamp and title on all four covers, gilt lettering on backstrip, green silk doublures, gilt top. Handsome volumes with minor wear to the backstrip crowns and feet and one or two marks on the suede. The Riverside Press large paper edition, number 246 of 250, illustrated by E. W. Kemble; a late but magnificent edition of this work of tremendous historical significance. The elderly author shows a flash of her old industriousness in the full page inscription in Volume I: "Not one throb of anguish not one tear of the oppressed is forgotten by the Man of Sorrows the Lord of Glory. In His generous patient bosom he bears the anguish of a world", and in Volume II where she quotes from Uncle Tom's death scene: "Oh Mas'r George ye' are too late. The Lord's bought me, and is going to take me home and I long to go. Heaven is better than Kintuck."Both volumes are also inscribed "Written for Mr. W. H. Cathcart." and signed and dated in full, and inserted in Volume I is an ALS by Stowe's daughter, Miss H. B. Stowe, 4 pages, 8vo, Hartford, Oct. 17, 1894. ". . . I wished my mother to write in them for you if possible. But writing for her is such an effort now . . . [I] only ask it of her very occasionally . . . I have had her write an extract for each volume on separate paper. I did not venture to have her write in the books, for fear of defacing them . . . I have had her attempt two or three times to write for you but without success until to day, when what she has written is quite as good as we can ever expect from her again. . .". Only two copies are recorded at auction with inscriptions by Stowe from the text, neither having two inscriptions. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Instructions for the Guidance of Her Majesty's Ships of War Employed in the Suppression of the Slave Trade.

      London: for Her Majesty's Stationery Office by Harrison and Sons,, 1892. 2 volumes, octavo (236 × 150 mm). Contemporary black half calf; dark blue cloth sides, vol. I morocco-grain and vol. II watered; spines gilt in compartments, raised bands, buff endpapers, edges speckled red. Occasional blind-stamps of the Barbados Corporation. Slightly rubbed overall, extremities bumped, vol. II sunned along head of front board, spotting to endleaves of vol. I, a few pages finger-marked in the margins not affecting text. A very good copy. Rare first edition of this handbook for British sailors, published in light of the Brussels Anti-Slavery Conference of 1889-1890 and in the same year as the Exclusive Agreement, the last in a series of 19th-century treaties agreed between the various Gulf shaykhdoms and the British, for whom the suppression of slavery and piracy provided a useful pretext for the protection of Indian shipping routes. Reproduced here in full are the texts in each treaty signed between the United Kingdom and the Gulf shaykhdoms from 1820 to 1847. The first agreement is the General Treaty with the Friendly Arabs, signed at Ra's al-Khaymah in 1820 (p. 144). Arab signatories include "Sheik Shakbool", that is Tahnun b. Shakhbut, shaykh of the Bani Yas and ruler of Abu Dhabi from 1818 to 1833, "Sultan bin Sugger", or Sultan bin Saqr al-Qasimi, ruler of Sharjah, and the "Sheik of Dubey", who in later agreements is named explicitly as Maktum b. Bati, who announced the independence of Dubai from Abu Dhabi in 1833 and founded the Maktum dynasty. The treaty binds the Arab shaykhdoms to aid the British against piracy in the Gulf, illustrating that the British, despite their naval supremacy, found their interests genuinely threatened by the activities of Arab sailors in the region. A further set of agreements, signed in 1838, with the chief of Abu Dhabi now known as "Khaleefa ben Shakbool", gives the British the right to detain and search any ships entering their ports which are suspected of carrying slaves. The final set of treaties, agreed with the various Gulf shaykhs over the course of 1847, including the chief of Bahrain, Muhammad b. Khalifah b. Subman, gives licence to British cruisers to seize any ships suspected of involvement in the slave trade. A rare and valuable source for the emergence of the modern Gulf states, this one of 500 copies printed, a printed issue-slip tipped in at the title page of volume I appearing to indicate that a maximum of 250 copies were actually issued in the first instance, with just six copies now traced in libraries worldwide.

      1892. Edited by H.G.O. Blake. Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1892. Original dark green cloth with facsimile signature in gilt, beveled. First Edition, which consisted of only 1020 copies (Borst says there were only 500, but Blanck's figure is more likely). This was the last of Thoreau's four "seasons" to be posthumously published from his journal: EARLY SPRING had come out in 1881, followed by SUMMER in 1884; curiously, WINTER came next, in 1888. Even using Blanck's larger number of copies, AUTUMN is one of the two scarcest (EARLY SPRING consisted of 1018 copies, while the other two consisted of 1260 and 1550 respectively).~This is a bright copy with scarcely any wear -- fine except for a bit of very faint speckling of the cloth (as is often the case).

        DEDICATION TO BACCHUS - Alma-Tadema.

      DEDICATION TO BACCHUS Staalgravure door Auguste Blanchard naar een schilderij van Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Uitgegeven te Londen in 1892. Met potlood gesigneerd XXX door Alma-Tadema en Blanchard. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd.H x B: 49 x 94 cm.De Londense Lefèvre Gallery wijdde een speciale tentoonstelling aan het schilderij (waarnaar deze gravure gemaakt is), vervaardigd in opdracht voor de collectie van bankier Baron von Schröder. Het werk heeft een kind in de cultus van Bacchus als onderwerp. Zonlicht schijnt door de paarse baldakijn en werpt een schaduw op de plechtige figuren van gesluierde priester en priesteres die het kind opwachten voor een marmeren altaar. Naast hen bespeelt een groep muzikanten hun instrumenten. Links van het altaar wacht het kind met een menigte vereerders, waaronder vier mannen met een grote wijnzak als zoenoffer voor de goden.Een bacchante gekleed in een luipaardvel staat bij een zilveren bokaal, die gebruikt wordt voor het mengen van gewijde wijn met water. Dit is een kopie van een beroemd stuk uit de zgn. Hildesheim-schat, ontdekt in 1868, waarvan Alma-Tadema een replica bezat en die op veel van zijn schilderijen is afgebeeld. Een andere bacchante, in een tijgervel, zwaait met een tak die is versierd met bloemen, een bel en een lint. Er wordt verondersteld dat dit een variant is van de traditionele thyrsus (ook 'Bacchusstaf" genaamd). De twee dansende bacchanten naderen het altaar waarop zij de guirlande op traditionele wijze zullen ophangen.Een verschil tussen schilderij en gravure (die drie jaar na elkaar gemaakt zijn), is dat de guirlande op de gravure, gemaakt is van bloemen die blaadjes verliezen en op het schilderij de guirlande alleen bladgroen heeft. Nog een opmerkelijk verschil: op de gravure aan de tempel rechts zit geen fries met daarop centauren (bekend om hun onblusbare libido), ook een bronzen beeld van een centaur voor de tempel ontbreekt. Mogelijk heeft de kunstenaar verwijzingen naar de orgiën in Livius" verslag van het Bacchanalische schandaal in 186 v. Chr., willen beperken. Deze inwijdingsscène wordt meer gekenmerkt door godsdienstigheid dan door Bacchanalische hartstocht. Prijs: € 3.450,- (incl. lijst) .

        An Australian Language as spoken by the Awabakal

      Sydney: Charles Potter, 1892. A little rubbed but a very good copy.. Octavo, folding map and other illustrations; original presentation binding of half morocco. Threlkeld joined the London Missionary Society and in 1816 sailed with his family to the South Seas, working with John Williams at Raiatea. In 1824 he arrived in Sydney, where his proposal to establish an Aboriginal mission was supported by Governor Brisbane. The mission was established the following year at Reid's Mistake on Lake Macquarie with a 10,000-acre parcel of land. The excessive expenditure of the mission incurred the wrath of Rev. Samuel Marsden who successfully sought Threlkeld's dismissal and the abandonment of the mission in 1828.Threlkeld spent the following ten years as a government-paid missionary living and working with the local tribe of Lake Macquarie. He became fluent in the local dialect, under the tutelage of Biraban, the local elder whose portrait appears here as a frontispiece, and acted as interpreter for Aborigines on trial in Sydney. In the Sydney Gazette of 1826 Threlkeld's work on the Aboriginal language was highly praised; this published linguistic study of the dialect, as well as his other reports, are regarded as landmarks in Aboriginal studies.This is the much extended edition, re-arranged by the anthropologist, John Fraser. It includes the Awabakal-English Lexicon with separate title page.

        The Story of a Puppet, or The Adventures of Pinocchio

      New York: Cassell Publishing Co, 1892. First American edition. Near Fine. Published simultaneously with the British Unwin edition, using the same sheets, but with a canceled title page. Part of the Children's Library Series. Original blue floral-decorated white cloth, recased with a slight loss to the cloth at the base of the spine; internally in excellent condition. Presenting Near Fine overall. Only one other copy of this Cassell imprint is currently available (the VG+ Bradley Martin copy for $9500) and only one appears in the recent auction record, Christies 2005; the American issue is decidedly scarce. Originally appearing in an Italian children's magazine in 1881, "La Storia di un Burattino" was more than an amusing, yet dark, tale for Italian children. Written by the political activist, Carlo Collodi, the story of Pinocchio was meant to aide in the reunification of Italy after the Napoleonic Wars had splintered the Italian states and devastated any sense of national identity. With the struggle to rebuild the Italian nation at hand, Collodi, worked to translate and create educational children's literature to create a vision of unification for the people. His story of Pinocchio was quite unlike the sanitized Disney version that most children grew up watching. The original story depicts an unsympathetic "rogue" in the carpenter, Geppetto, who defied his father's wishes, eschewed education, and fell easily into temptation by the fox and the cat. And, spoiler alert, it ended with Pinocchio's death at the hand of his tempters, providing a warning to those children who were not obedient to their parents or striving towards good moral behavior. When the stories were compiled and published as a book in 1883, titled: "Le avventure di Pinocchio," they were given a more upbeat ending, where Pinocchio realizes his wrongdoings, corrects his behavior, and ultimately transforms into a real boy. Due to the story's success in Italy, Mary Alice Murray translated this first English edition of the story in 1892. "Almost nothing else in children's literature equals Pinocchio for wildness of invention" (Humphrey Carpenter & Mari Prichard: The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature). Near Fine.
