        Iola Leroy, or Shadows Uplifted

      Philadelphia: Garrigues Brothers. 1892. First. First edition. Brown cloth gilt. Frontispiece portrait of the author (occasionally lacking). Introduction by William Still. A fine copy with just the slightest of bumping at the corners and hinge repaired, the gilt bright and unrubbed. Small stamp of the Anti-Slavery and Aborigines Protection Society on first blank, and beneath that Inscribed by Harper in pencil: "C. Impey. Street Somerset 1893 from the Author (and Publisher W. Still)".The only novel by Harper, better known for her poetry and essays, this was long considered the first novel to be published by an African-American woman, until Henry Louis Gates, Jr. advanced the cause of Harriet E. Wilson's Our Nig (1859).Although this novel contains many conventional elements, it also concerns itself with the personal independence of women of color, and particularly of the race in general. The protagonist, the daughter of a wealthy white father, is unaware that her mother is not only mulatto, but also the property of the husband. Iola and her brother and sister lead lives of privilege in North Carolina and at an expensive boarding school until her father dies, when her uncle claims them as slaves. Soon liberated by the Union Army, she offers her services as a nurse, and attracts the attentions of a white doctor, who discovers she is of mixed race, and encourages her to "pass" for white, which she rejects, setting off to seek her parents accompanied by a light-skinned black doctor instead. Iola commits herself to the education and furtherance of her race, and particularly of the freed slave, but is especially adamant about maintaining her status as an employed woman, saying at one point: "I think that every woman should have some skill or art which would insure her at least a comfortable support. I believe there would be less unhappy marriages if labor were more honored among women." Iola is also strongly in support of the temperance movement and in the principles of the Women's Christian Temperance Union in particular. While the novel has a conventional ending -- Iola marries the black doctor -- she continues her educational endeavors and social work as a married woman.The inscription in this copy is to Catherine Impey (of Street Somerset) a British Quaker activist against racial discrimination who founded Britain's first anti-racist journal, Anti-Caste, in 1888. The journal focused largely on issues in America. In 1893, she formed The Society for the Recognition of the Universal Brotherhood of Man, with the American Ida B. Wells, who visited her in Britain to campaign against lynching.This is the first of only four 19th Century editions. In addition to this first edition, there was a second edition published by Garrigue Brothers in 1893; the third edition, published by James H. Earle, which is dated 1892, but is stated third edition, and was probably published after 1893; and a fourth edition, also published by Earle, in 1895. OCLC locates 28 copies of the first edition, a surprisingly large number, all but a handful are found in the libraries of traditionally black colleges, where they would have been of particular interest, and more readily available at an early date. However, the list of institutions that do not have a copy of the first edition is impressive. A single inferior copy at auction in the past 25 years. We have occasionally, if infrequently, seen copies of the later printings, this is the third copy of the first edition we've seen in 30 years; in beautiful condition, the only signed copy of which we are aware, and a pleasing association. .

        Histoire de L'Art Decoratif de XVI Siecle a Nos Jours

      Henri Laurens, Paris 1892 - Heavy folio-sized, 40 by 32 cm, 15.5 by 12 inches. 15 lbs., with slipcase. vii, 336 pp, with 60 plates, 48 of which are color chromolithographs, and several of these are two paged. A magnificent survey of the decorative arts, touching on furniture, glass, porcelain, faience and ceramics, enamel, metalwork, fabric, etc. A truly magnificent and majesterial work, and this is a copy that is fully commensurate, with its half purple morocco over marbled boards, which are themselves unusually thick and substantial. Perhaps the one minor defect is that the spine leather has been sunned to a brown, but the difference in color with that on the boards is unlikely to disconcert. Gilt edges all around, and immaculate within. With slipcase of cloth and morocco trim.

He graduated from Yale University in 1873, and also received the degrees A.M. in 1876 and Ph.D. in 1882 from Yale. He began a career in journalism in 1874 in the editorial department of the Independent, a weekly Congregational journal with a strong anti-slavery bias that had been founded by his father. The following year he became its foreign correspondent, and from 1896 to 1912 its publisher and proprietor. After retiring from journalism, Bowen involved himself with historical research, genealogy, and world travel. His interests ranged from the George Washington Centennial Celebration (1889), to the the establishment of the American Historical Association, the Celebration of the 400 Anniversary of the Discovery of America,the 1892 World's Fair, the American Antiquarian Society, the Republican Party, the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, and the Manhattan Congregational Church.

        The Adventure of Silver Blaze

      Strand Magazine 1892 - Quite possible the only surviving copy of the rare HARDCOVER edition of this historic publication, and possibly, of any single issue of the Strand Magazine containing a Sherlock Holmes story. It is the December, 1892 issue of the Strand Magazine, which contained the Sherlock Holmes story The Adventure of Silver Blaze. The Silver Blaze is certainly the most famous story ever written about a race horse, and one of the greatest Sherlock Holmes stories. In this story, Holmes utters the infamous line referring to "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time," to which the Scotland Yard detective objects, "The dog did nothing in the night-time." And Holmes responds: "That was the curious incident." This is a special hardcover edition of the single issue, with a gold stamp marking the issue with a gold crown and the words "Royal Edition." In addition, the volume in inscribed by the author of the first article. Very good in cloth covers, comes in a custom-made slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      George Newnes, London 1892 - Royal 8vo, pp. 660. Although Conan Doyle had introduced the character of Sherlock Holmes to the reading public in 1887, with the publication of the novel "A Study in Scarlet" and, later, his second novel, "The Sign of the Four", the first Sherlock Holmes short story, "A Scandal in Bohemia", was not published until July, 1891, in volume II of The Strand Magazine. It was the first of twelve stories which ran in the magazine until June, 1892, and which were later combined and published in one book entitled "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", published by Newnes in October, 1892 (see G&G A10). Our offering is a bound copy of volume III of The Strand Magazine, containing the first appearance in print of the remaining six of the Sherlock Holmes "adventure" stories (see G&G, pp. 54-58). Titles include: "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle"; "The Adventure of the Speckled Band"; "The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb"; "The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor"; "The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet"; and "The Adventure of the Copper Beeches". Each story is illustrated by Sidney Paget. The book is handsomely bound in 3/4 wine-red polished calf, with the spine in compartments interspersed with blind-stamped florettes. All edges are marbled. There is a rubber stamp of "Red Cross Lodge" on the endpapers. The boards show rubbing to edges, and some light general scuffing. The binding is tight, and the contents are clean. Overall, a good plus copy. Included are all the other stories and illustrations published in this volume, including the first appearance of Rudyard Kipling's story "The Lost Legion" A single bound volume of six monthly issues [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      - PRIMERA EDICIÓN. 444 pp. Láminas (fotolitografías del escudo de armas del Orden de Predicadores, de la efigie de San Jacinto y del mapa explicativo del viaje, láminas con que aparece ilustrado el manuscrito). Bella edición en papel de hilo conservando sus cubiertas en rústica y sin desbarbar. Papel blanquísimo. Diputación Provincial de León. León, 1892. El libro se conservaba manuscrito desde una fecha no conocida, aunque remota, en el archivo municipal de León, ignorándose cómo tan preciado códice vino a parar al depósito documental de un pueblo con cuya historia no tiene la más mínima relación. El docto D. Pascual de Gayangos fue el primero que fijó en él su escrutadora e inteligente mirada. Este renombrado orientalista, años después, siendo Director general de Instrucción pública, comunicó la noticia del hallazgo al bibliotecario de la provincial legionense, D. Ramón Álvarez de la Braña, quien, sin pérdida de tiempo, se enteró de la existencia del manuscrito y de su argumento, publicando en la Revista de Archivos, Bibliotecas y Museos un articulo en que encarecía su importancia y la necesidad de darle cuanto antes a conocer. Va seguida de algunos apéndices que contienen:Indicaciones Geográficas, Apuntes Biográficos, Vocabulario y Noticias de Historia Natural, para más fácil inteligencia del texto.

        The Alhambra

      G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York & London 1892 - Author's Revised edition. Volumes 1 & 2. Period decorative embossed cloth covered boards with beveled edges, Top Edge Gilt, deckle edges, decorative endpapers, tissue guarded illstrations. These two volumes should take center stage on any book shelf. They are good examples of late nineteenth century decorative art noveau binding. The white front board has a blue and light green pattern with gilt outline. A variation of this interesting Moorish motif is repeated on the spine. Lovely decorative borders outline the text on each page. Black and white photo illustrations of the Alhambra complete this special publishing effort. Fascinated by this 13th century Spanish castle and citadel, Washington Irving wrote extensively about it. This two volume set celebrates the author's passion for this Moorish landmark and would be a great addition to any private library. There is minor soiling, but the white boards are exceptionally bright! Internally there is some off-setting from the tissue guards, but this is not uncommon. The back boards have some light staining around the edges of the fixed endpapers. Both text and illustrations are very clean. The books are tightly bound and in wonderful condition with just the lightest of wear to the front board of one of the volumes. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]
