        WRITINGS OF THOMAS JEFFERSON. Collected and Edited by Paul Leicester Ford

      New York and London: G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 1892-1899. 10 volumes. A UNIQUE, INSCRIBED COPY OF THE VERY SCARCE FIRST EDITION and the Best Issuance of the collection. THIS UNIQUE COPY IS ONE OF ONLY A SMALL NUMBER LETTERED RATHER THAN NUMBERED AND IT IS MARKED AS “PRESENTATION COPY”. THE FIRST VOLUME IS INSCRIBED ON THE FREE-FLY BY THE EDITOR, PAUL LEICESTER FORD ON THE DAY OF PUBLICATION, DECEMBER 13, 1892. It is presented to a family member. The provenance is of singular importance and the books continued to be passed down through the family until the end of the 1950’s, when they came into the possession of John Strohn Copley the publisher of the The San Diego Union Tribune and the San Diego Evening Tribune. The Letter-Press Edition of the Writings limited to only seven hundred fifty signed and numbered sets. With engravings and a vast profusion of illustrations throughout, including maps and facsimiles of Jefferson’s writings, of the Declaration of Independence and of other important papers. Tall, thick 8vo, in the publisher’s preferred binding of half black morocco over maroon cloth boards, one of the scarcest of the bindings issued on this already elusive set of Jefferson’s highly important writings. A fine set, very beautifully presented and in an excellent state of preservation. A very handsome, very well cared for set of this monumental work of historical scholarship. A VERY IMPORTANT SET OF THE WORKS OF ONE OF AMERICA’S MOST ILLUSTRIOUS PERSONAGES AND WRITER OF A NUMBER OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS IN AMERICAN HISTORY. THIS IS THE RARE ISSUANCE OF THE WORKS IN PUBLISHER’S MOROCCO. The set, besides including the great breadth of Jefferson’s writing, includes also, copies of the Declaration of Independence, in the form of a facsimile of Jefferson’s written manuscript with the corrections of Franklin and Adams. The set is illustrated profusely with maps and portraits, facsimiles and other illustrations. Ford's edition of THE WRITINGS OF THOMAS JEFFERSON is still regarded as one of the monuments of American historical scholarship, setting the standard for documentary editing for half-a-century. Ford's edition remains valuable for its accuracy of transcription from original manuscripts and its careful annotation of the documents chosen for publication. The Ford edition appeared in two versions, a ten-volume edition published between 1892 and 1896 and a fourteen-volume limited numbered edition (known as the "Federal" edition) issued in 1904; other than the different breakdown of volumes, the contents of these editions are identical. Readers, however, have to take note of which edition is being used in a given scholarly work. This unique first edition copy was presented by Ford to members of his family on the day of publication, and it remained in the family until it passed into the hands of James Strohn Copley (1916, St. Johnsville, New York - 1973) publisher of The San Diego Union-Tribune and the San Diego Evening Tribune from 1947 until his death in 1973. Copley was also President of the Inter American Press Association (1969 - 1970). The University of San Diego has a library named in honour of Copley and his wife (the Helen K. and James S. Copley Library).

        [The Works] Hillingdon Hall; Handley Cross; Jorrock's Jaunts and Jollities; Hawbuck Grange; "Plain or Ringlets?"; Mr. Romford's Hounds; Ask Mamma; Mr. Sponge's Sporting Tour

      London: Bradbury, Agnew & Co., [and others], circa 1892. 8 works in eight volumes, octavo. (8 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches). Numerous hand-coloured plates after John Leech, Henry Alken and others, 1 hand-coloured additional title, 6 hand-coloured title vignettes, uncoloured illustrations in 'Handley Cross'. 20th-century red half morocco over cloth-covered boards, bound for Henry Sotheran of Sackville Street, London, by Bayntun-Riviere of Bath, spines gilt in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, the first with a fox's mask tool, the third with a whip and horseshoe tool, the fifth with a hound's head, the sixth with a horse's heads bordered in gilt, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. A finely bound set from the pen of the 19th-century's best known sporting author: Thackeray envied him, William Morris considered him 'a master of life'. The 'Dickens of the Sporting field' Surtees is still very readable today. Surtees' best-selling works are humorous and lively. The author was arguably a match for Dickens in the field of social observation, whilst surpassing him as an observer of the natural world: with warmth and humour Surtees captured an era and a way of life that reached its zenith during Queen Victoria's reign. The 'Sporting Novels' were essential reading in the country houses of Victorian England and deserve a place on the shelves of today's private library.

        1891-93 9vols SHAKESPEARE Works Cambridge Ed WRIGHT

      ols I - IV) 1892 (Vols V - VIII) 1893 (Vol IX)- London - Macmillan, 1891 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Finely bound volumes in half leather with gilt decoration to the spines,marble paper pastedowns and marbled foredge. William Aldis Wright (1831 - 1914), was an English writer and editor. This is the second and best edition of the very well regarded 'Wright' Shakespeare. The Works of William Shakespeare (1863-6), edited by William George Clark, with at first W. Aldis Wright and later John Glover as collaborators, was published in nine volumes by Macmillan, but printed at the University Press, so that it became known as the Cambridge Shakespeare. This important edition was based on a thorough collation of the four Folios and of all the Quarto editions of the separate plays, and of subsequent editions and commentaries (preface), so that in textual matters it constitutes a virtual variorum. Prefaces provide accounts of the early textual history of each of the works, and the volumes include the texts of first quartos of Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet, as well as the quartos relating to Henry V, The First Part of the Contention (2 Henry VI), and Richard Duke of York (3 Henry VI). Clark and Wright used the Cambridge edition as the basis for the influential one-volume Globe Shakespeare. Both the Cambridge and the Globe editions were revised in 1891 (The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare)He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, and in 1888 became vice-master of the college. He was one of the editors of the Journal of Philology from its foundation in 1868, and was secretary to the Old Testament revision company from 1870 to 1885. He edited the plays of Shakespeare published in the Clarendon Press series (186897), also with W. G. Clark the Cambridge Shakespeare (1863-1866; 2nd ed. 1891-1893) and the Globe edition (1864). He published a facsimile of the Milton manuscript in the Trinity College library (1899), and edited Milton's poems with critical notes (1903). He was the intimate friend and literary executor of Edward FitzGerald, whose Letters and Literary Remains he edited in 1889. This was followed by the Letters of Edward FitzGerald to Fanny Kemble (1895), his Miscellanies (1900), More Letters of Edward FitzGerald (1901), and The Works of Edward FitzGerald (7 vols. , 1903). He edited the metrical chronicle of Robert of Gloucester (1887), Generydes (1878) for the Early English Text Society, and other texts. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm, although the rear outer hinge of Volume IIIisstarting at the bottom. Thereis some wear to the extremities including fading to the spine of Volume IX as seen (could be restained to match better), some rubbing to the edges of the boards and a few faint marks to some of the boards. There is some evidence of past damp staining to bottom of the rear board of Volume II andthe top of the rear board of Volume III. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional spot and light spotting to the endpapers. There is a bookplate to the front pastedown of each volume. Overall the volumes are in very good condition..

        Rare Original Photograph of O'Neill as a boy, unsigned, oblong 8vo, with full signature on a small 12mo visiting card

      The image shows the future playwright in full length profile, sitting on a rock, with pad and pencil as if he is about to sketch or write. He sits near a lake with a house visible at the lake's edge. The photo has been cropped at the top. On verso, docketed in pencil, are notations for further cutting of the image to remove unwanted margins from the central focus of a charming portrait of O'Neill as a boy. The docketing reads, "Eugene O'Neill 25 years ago." The photographer's stamp shows upside down at the top edge indicating to whom credit should be given when reproductions would be made. The photographer is Nickolas Muray (1892- 1965) who had made other images of O'Neill as an adult. On the black bordered visiting card, O?Neill has crossed out his printed name and written his full name below

Scenes in Canada, in the States, on the Great Lakes, on the Plains and in California - A Book of Wonders with many ludicrous scenes, Comical Situations and Humorous Passages." A wonderful and original work. Some passages concern encounters with Mormons - the author's aunt is abducted by Mormons and later rescued. Joeseph Smith is mentioned by name, and he is not depicted in a very friendly light. A very rare book.

        LAURA RUTHVEN'S WIDOWHOOD

      London: Lawrence & Bullen, 1892.. Three volumes. Original medium green textured cloth, ruled in blind, spines lettered in gilt. Spine lettering very slightly dull, endsheets a bit tanned, a few minor smudges to cloth, but a very good, tight set, with the bookplate of Pickford Waller in each volume. First edition. Davidson's only triple-decker, a collaboration with Charles James Wills, M.D., M.R.C.S. (1842-1912), and a rare book. Wills was trained as a physician and spent some time in that practice before turning to literature in 1882, at the age of 40. He began his new career as a travel writer, and then went on to publish more than a dozen novels. John Davidson, some 15 years younger than his colleague, is now the better known of the two. He wrote plays, poetry of ideas, journalism, short stories, and philosophy; he was a member of the Rhymers' Club, and a contributor to THE YELLOW BOOK. Davidson's later years were wretched, despite the patronage of such notables as Edmund Gosse and George Bernard Shaw, and in the end he committed suicide. Recent studies have revealed that Davidson wrote other books with Wills, but this title is the only one to acknowledge the collaboration on the title- page. The NUC lists four copies (CtY, MiU, NjP, NNC), to which OCLC adds two others (CLU [Sadleir], TxU). Not in Wolff and not in the Colbeck collection. We've handled one other set, some years ago, as part of a Davidson collection sold en bloc. SADLEIR 676. STONEHILL 9. NCBEL III:620.

        The New Englander, New Englander and Yale Review, and the Yale Review, in 131 bound volumes, from 1843 through Summer 1969, missing only one year (1862)

      New Haven: Maltby, Wiley, Ginn, Yale, et al.. 1892. First edition. Hardcover. Ex-Library. Ex-Library set of bound volumes of "The New Englander," which was later called "New Englander and Yale Review," which was later called "The Yale Review," from 1843 - Summer, 1969. The journal, regarded as the oldest literary quarterly in the US, was founded originally in 1819 as The Christian Spectator. In 1843 it changed its name to "The New Englander," and its focus to history and economics. In 1885 it was renamed to "The New Englander and Yale Review." Finally, in 1892, new editor Henry Walcott Farnam changed the name to its current title, "The Yale Review," and decided to focus more on politics and history, and, eventually, literature and poetry. This set contains 131 bound volumes, starting with Volume 1 of "The New Englander" (1843), through Volume 58 of "The Yale Review," (1968- 9). This set lacks only one book, Volume 21 of "The New Englander," (1862), but it does have an additional index to the first 19 volumes of "The Yale Review." Library stickers on spines, bookplates on front pastedowns, and stamping (ink and blindstamps) to prelims and title pages. Contents are readable and unmarked. Many of the early volumes have tissue- covered plates. Some of the earliest volumes are in 1/2 leather bindings, but most of their boards are loose. The later volumes are bound in green and black library buckram. "The New Englander" attracted some well known names, but the modern history of the journal, beginning with its appointment of Wilbur Cross as editor in 1911, featured writers such as Thomas Mann, Henry Adams, Virginia Woolf, George Santayana, Robert Frost, José Ortega y Gasset, Eugene O’Neill, Leon Trotsky, H.G. Wells, Thomas Wolfe, John Maynard Keynes, H.L. Mencken, A.E. Housman, Ford Madox Ford, Wallace Stevens, John Berryman, W. H. Auden and Randall Jarrell. 131 volumes. Will require extra postage.
