      Strand, London: Pall Mall Gazette Office. Good/No Jacket. 1892. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Original edition published in 1892. Peter an admirable cat appeared in the world on a terrible winter's night. A fierce snowstorm was raging, the sleet was driving through the air and the streets were banked up with snowdrifts. All traffic had been stopped and the roar of London was hushed when Peter (one of seven kittens) was born in a fur lined bonnet! Peter became the pet of Louis Wain and the inspiration for much of his work. This is the remarkable story of Peter's life and of how he and his master learned to converse in 'cat language' (a series of different sounding mews) and of how Peter learned to 'play dead' on command! These and many other wonderful tales are told by Charles Morley (a pal of Peter's). Illustrated throughout in black and white by Louis Wain. Brown pattered boards with dark brown spine, title in gilt, all edges rubbed, 1" splits to top and tail of spine. 10 x 7.5" with 88 pages. Published in 1892 assumed 1st edition (much later inscription on ffep to Sophie from her great grandmother Christmas 1966). Some browning and foxing, last page torn on edges with some loss (not to text just margin) blue ink 'blob' on margin of a little over half of the pages, small tears and chips to edge of title page and margin tear to page 22. Very scarce book in good condition. .

        An Australian Language

      Sydney,: Charles Potter, Government Printer, 1892.. Octavo, folding map and other illustrations; very good in original plum morocco binding, blind embossed and lettered in gilt, a little rubbed. Substantially revised edition of Threlkeld's foundation work in aboriginal languages, re-arranged by the anthropologist, John Fraser, including work published for the first time.Fraser's preface sombrely comments that the work is being issued "as a record of the language of native tribes that are rapidly disappearing from the coasts of Eastern Australia... The indigenes of the Sydney district are gone long ago, and some of the inland tribes are represented now only by a few families of wanderers."The Reverend Lancelot Eward Threlkeld lived for many years as a missionary in the Lake Macquarie district, and first published a grammar in 1834. This volume includes Threlkeld's grammatical studies, as well as a reissue of his Key to the Structure of the Aboriginal Language. Of great interest is Threlkeld's own translation of the gospel of St. Luke into the Awabakal language, and his Awabakal-English Lexicon, both published here for the first time, edited from the original manuscripts in the collection of Sir George Grey. Fraser also includes a good biography of Threlkeld, and several appendices from other aboriginal language scholars including Taplin and Moorhouse.The work includes an important map of New South Wales showing the known locations of the aboriginal tribes, the first time such a detailed map was attempted. There are also portraits of Biraban, one of Threlkeld's most helpful advisers; "Old Margaret", claimed to be the last survivor of the Awabakal; and Buntimai, "A Messenger".Ferguson, 17144.

        The Story of a Puppet or the Adventures of Pinocchio

Original patterned cloth printed in blue, patterned endpapers and edges to match. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Half-title and title printed in red and black, frontispiece and illustrations throughout by C. Mazzanti.

Endpapers and outer leaves very lightly foxed, else a fine copy, the cloth particularly fresh, clean and white. First edition in English. The London and New York editions are from the same sheets and both dated 1892, although the inscription here suggests that the London edition at least was issued the previous year, presumably for the Christmas gift market. First issued in magazine instalments in the Giornale dei bambini (Rome, 7 July 1881 on), Pinocchio was first published in book form in 1883 as Le Avventure di Pinocchio: storia di un burattino, and quickly became a best-seller, though Collodi (real name Carlo Lorenzini) died in 1890 before witnessing its international success. "Almost nothing else in children's literature equals Pinocchio for wildness of invention" (Carpenter & Prichard, Oxford Companion to Children's Literature).

        The Port of New York. Birds Eye View from the Battery, Looking South.

      Currier & Ives, New York 1892 - An excellent example of the rare 1892 edition of a dramatic birds eye view of the port of New York. Included below the title is a list of fifty-seven references to sites of interest. At the center of the image is Castle Garden, originally an island and cultural hub with a world famous theater. The piece shows the building when it was still operating as the world's first immigration center. In 1892, when it was replaced by Ellis Island, Castle Garden returned to its roots of entertainment and became an aquarium. The flurry of activity in one of the world's busiest ports is palpable, with horse drawn streetcars along the Battery and boats and ships veering in and around Staten Island, Governor's Island, part of Brooklyn and New Jersey. The Statue of Liberty had just been completed in 1886. Currier & Ives called themselves the "Printmakers to the People" and they produced thousands of images that chronicled the growth of the United States. Founded in 1834, Currier & Ives produced high quality lithographs until the business closed in 1907. The piece has been expertly restored and is framed and sealed with padded rabbet and UF5 conservation plexiglass. Original color lithograph. Image measures 26.25" x 38", with frame 32.25" x 44".

      1892. Illustrated. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1892. 2 pp undated ads. Original terra-cotta cloth decorated in black. First American Edition. This edition (January 1892, 421 pages) excluded many events "more especially addressed to adult readers," including two pivotal ones: Tess's "seduction" by her cousin Alec, and the baptism and death of her baby. Then the "New and Revised Edition" (the same binding but May 1892, 455 pages) restored these two major events but left the rest of the text bowdlerized. Finally a "New and Completely Revised Edition" (again the same binding, but 1893, 457 pages) restored the text more or less back to that of the English edition.~An attractive Margaret Armstrong binding, this copy is in remarkably fine condition. The first American edition has become quite scarce in this condition. Purdy p. 76; Gullans & Espey 112.

        President Harrison Welcomes His Running Mate to the 1892 Ticket

      President Harrison Welcomes His Running Mate to the 1892 Ticket.& & The 1892 Republican National Convention was held at the Industrial Exposition Building in Minneapolis, Minnesota from June 7 to 10, 1892. President Harrison was renominated for President but, surprisingly for an incumbant, his choice was not unanimous. Harrison received 536 delegate votes to secure the nomination, but former nominee James G. Blaine of Maine received 183 delegates and future president William McKinley finished third with 182 delegates. Harrison's difficulties within his party stemmed from his personality: he was insensitive in his treatment of party leaders, had a cold demeanor, and refused to seek or listen to advice. Vice President Levi Morton had angered both the President and Republican leaders by his opposition to a key piece of civil rights legislation that became a test of party loyalty, so he was unceremoniously dumped from the ticket. Whitelaw Reid, American minister to France and editor of the New York Tribune, had no enemies and was unanimously chosen to replace Morton on the ticket. He sent congratulations to Harrison, who responded by welcoming him aboard.& & Autograph Telegram Signed on White House letterhead, Washington, undated but June 10 or 11, 1892, to Reid upon his nomination for vice president. "Thanks for your cordial congratulations. I am most happy to be able at once to express my sincere satisfaction that the Convention has named you for the Vice Presidency." This telegram is the only welcoming message from a president to his nominated running mate that we have ever seen on the market.& & The presidential election was held on November 8, 1892. Former President Grover Cleveland returned to defeat Harrison, becoming the only person to be elected to non-consecutive presidential terms. Cleveland, who had won the popular vote against Harrison in 1888, won both the popular and electoral vote in the rematch. The Democrats also regained control of both chambers of Congress. Harrison's defeat stemmed from his unpopular stands on three national issues. First, his support for the high McKinley Tariff of 1890, which resulted in significant price increases for goods. In the public's mind, this seemed directly related to government protection of special corporate interests. Second, a series of bloody labor strikes again linked Harrison to those interests. Third, agrarian discontent in the South and West led many farmers to look to the Populist Party as an alternative.

        Collection of designs for Christmas cards

      (Birmingham, England), (1892-1895). One mat with four openings, + 3ff. A collection of four original pen-and-ink drawings for Christmas cards designed by Georgie Gaskin for Laurence W. Hodson and his family, together with the printed versions of three of the cards. Hodson, an important collector, philanthropist, and patron of the arts, was a good friend of both William Morris and Georgie and Arthur Gaskin. All four designs feature ornate floral and foliate borders, reminiscent of the illustrations of the Kelmscott Press. The first card, from 1892, is illustrated with a grapevine design with children and birds incorporated into the pattern among the vines. The second card, for 1893, depicts two girls standing in front of an apple tree, with the text on banners amidst the branches. The third and fourth cards, for 1894 and 1895, both depict nativity scenes: in one, angels surround the baby in the manger, and in the other, three kings present gifts to the swaddled child, held in Mary's lap. The first two cards, from 1892 and 1893, are signed G. C. France: this was Georgie's maiden name, before she married Arthur Gaskin, a teacher and artist who produced woodcuts for the Kelmscott Press. Both Gaskins studied at the Birmingham School of Art, were strong proponents of the Arts & Crafts movement, and embraced the style and ideas of William Morris. The influences of Morris and Edward Burne-Jones are certainly evident in Gaskin's designs for these Christmas cards, but one can also see her own style developing and evolving over the four years. Georgie and Arthur Gaskin were also well-known for their elegant handmade jewelry; Georgie designed the jewelry, and her pieces often featured elaborate flowering vines, a characteristic that can readily be seen in the borders of these Christmas card designs. Gaskin's corrections can be seen in the last two cards, where she reworked the figures. One of the printed cards shows some faint marginal foxing, else a fine collection.

        Favorite Flies & Their Histories

      Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin, 1892 - The classic work of late nineteenth century American fly fishing. An interesting and attractive book, "an important work on the flies in use during the latter past of the nineteenth century - exquisite colored plates -" (Wetzel), which went into several editions. It was written (and compiled from her father's correspondence) by the daughter of Charles F. Orvis, famed American tackle-maker and author of "Fishing With the Fly" (1883). Goodspeed notes that while Mrs. Marbury was "not herself a fisher- woman", she was an expert at making flies, which she tied without the aid of a vise. Much of the book consists of the replies her father received from anglers to whom he had posed questions concerning the sport First Edition, first issue, with date "1892" on title-page. Thick 8vo. Illustrated with 32 color plates of flies, engravings of natural insects & 8 photos. viii, [ii], 521 pp. Bound in three quarters morocco and marbled boards. Ownership of Alfred A. Kiggins.

        Iola Leroy, or Shadows Uplifted

      Garrigues Brothers 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. .

        Description of the Star Camera, at the Sydney Observatory

      Sydney,: S.T Leigh & Co.,, 1892.. Quarto, with a photograph and seven large lithograph plates; original red cloth, some browning and a few institutional stamps, a good copy recased with new endpapers. The principal observatories in New South Wales during the nineteenth century were at Sydney and Parramatta, and from the 1890s to the 1930s an astrometric camera was run as a field station by Sydney Observatory at Red Hill, which today is Observatory Park, Pennant Hills. The author of this rare work was the Government Astronomer from 1870, who was responsible for some of the major astronomical programmes undertaken in Australia during the nineteenth century. His book shows details of the camera that was used at Red Hill for photographing the Milky Way and for gaining experience in stellar photography. Russell's work with photography was of great importance: see Holden, Photography in Colonial Australia, pp. 61-3 for further details.Not recorded by Ferguson.
