        The Chronicles of Barsetshire:] The Warden; Barchester Towers; Doctor Thorne; Framley Parsonage; The Small House at Allington; The Last Chronicle of Barset.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1878—1893 - 6 works in 8 volumes, octavo (187 × 123 mm). Recent red crushed half morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, red cloth sides, gilt titles to spines, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Illustrated bookplate to front pastedowns. An excellent, clean set. With wood-engraved frontispieces by F. A. Fraser. An attractively bound set of the collected Chronicles of Barsetshire. Trollope was famously never published in a complete uniform edition and Chapman and Hall's collected Chronicles of Barsetshire, which was originally published in 1878, is the nearest attempt at a collected edition, aside from the Chapman and Hall and Ward, Lock and Co.'s cheaply produced editions. This set is a reissue of the 1878 edition."The history of [Chapman & Hall's 1878 collected edition of the Chronicles of Basetshire] is not without interest. Trollope himself was very anxious that his Barsetshire novels should be brought together in a uniform series. Originally the venture was to comprise only six volumes, for he did not himself regard The Small House as one of the Barsetshire set; but he consented to its inclusion at the urgent request of Chapman & Hall" (Sadleir p. 245). Sadleir pp. 246-8.

        Point Donalson, Parker Florida, Bay County Residential Waterfront Development Family Archive 1893-1965

      Parker, Florida. 1893-1965. Point Donalson, Florida, Bay County Residential Development family archive consisting of documents, letters, photographs, and other ephemera from 1893 to 1980. The archive is related to the selling and development of land in the Point Donalson subdivision in Florida. Ephemera has small tears and some spotting else near fine with near fine photographs measuring between 7" x 5" to 3" x 3" with modest foxing and edgewear.A substantial account of the Donalson family's heritage and involvement with the creation of Point Donalson in Parker, Florida. Several photographs, newspaper clippings, letters, and government documents illustrate the lives and struggles of creating Point Donalson during the 1950s. There is a small pack of 10 black and white snapshot photos taken in the 1950s at Point Donalson showing the early phases of development. Some of the photos are of Crescent Beach and various other parts of the property being constructed. The beach is a long curved plot of sand on a lake with trees and bushes all around it. Though there are a few picture of the area, there aren't any full scale pictures, only maps. There is a large sectional folding map of Bay County, Florida issued by Bay County Land & Abstract Company Panama City from April 15, 1921. The map shows various land marks such as post offices, small towns, ferry lines, highways, and more. Point Donalson can be seen on the map next to long point and in between Saint Andrews Bay and East bay. There are also two hand drawn maps of a couple lots in block 12. The small map shows how the lots would back up to St. Andrews bay. There are 18 subdivision plat maps from 1912 to the 1950s. Five plates feature a close up view of the houses while the rest of the plates illustrate the full view of Point Donalson. A small map version of Point Donalson is printed on the last page of the printed brochures. There are four stapled, professionally printed eight page brochures titled "Point Donalson The Beauty Spot on St. Andrew's Bay Parker, Florida" with the printed name of H.V. Roelof's Parker, Washington County, Florida on the next to last page. One section reads, "for years real estate men have been trying to buy this property. We intend to live here ourselves, and knowing the propensity of real estate men to sell to any and every one who has the price, we have not until now disposed of any of it. A few choice residence sites will be sold to desirable people who wish to make summer, winter, or all-the-year-round homes away from the cold winters and hot summers." The brochures include information about the type of people the Donalsons wish to sell their homes to and as said before feature a small map of the location. Many of the documents are business related and there are several letters regarding to the selling of lots from Thomas Sale to Mrs. Logan Bleckley (Anne D. Bleckley) and vice versa. One of which explains how the original copy of the Resolution for the property hadn't been found but a copy had, "Will wonders never cease? How does paper evaporate inside a court house? And isn't the Clerk who copied the missing Resolution in the minutes of the County Commissioners responsible for the fact that it was not duly recorded along with the (also necessary) proof of advertising?" The Resolution was found on November 22, 1958 only three weeks after it went missing. The Resolution for the property as well as proof of advertising in the newspaper is paper clipped to Mr. Sale's letter. The resolution states the family members who own the land and where, "Whereas, it has been made to appear that Logan Bleckley, Jr. Anne D. Bleckley, Henry W. Pearce, Lorna D. Pearce, William G. Donalson, James A. Donalson and Stella W. Donalson, as the owners of certain lands in Section 24, Township 4 South, Range 14 West known as Point Donalson." There is also a ledger book measuring 12" x 7.5", listing accounts of the property heirs including Anne Bleckley, from 1925 to 1956. Most of the land was divided as equally as possible, giving each child a section of Point Donalson. The houses were designed to look mostly the same and follow the same structures as all the others. A couple letters discuss the building limitations in Point Donalson. All lots had to be considered residential housing with a possible garage and separate housing for servants. The ground floor had to be within 1400 square feet with an overall housing value of $7,500.00 or more. Asbestos siding or concrete block was necessary and no temporary housing such as tents or trailers were permitted. The residents were allowed to build a dock on the Donalson Cove and housing owners were expected to have regulation septic tanks instead of dumping waste into the cove. There is also a family photo and extensive information on the family's genealogy collected by Sarah Eliza Donalson included.An extensive collection of information about the Donalson family and their involvement in Point Donalson Florida from 1893 to 1980. .

        Tabès et paralysie générale

      Paris, Steinheil, 1893, in-8, 160-[4] pages et 10 planches, exemplaire broché, Édition en librairie, peu courante, de la thèse de Jean Nageotte (1866-1948). Elle fut très remarquée à l'époque, notamment par Babinski qui devait signer avec Nageotte, quelques années plus tard, un ouvrage de la plus haute importance ; Hémiasynergie, latéropulsion et myosis bulbaires avec hémianesthésie et hémiplégie croisées (1902), dans lequel les deux neurologues décrivent le syndrome de Babinski-Nageotte, conséquence d'une lésion bulbaire unilatérale d'origine syphilitique. Dans le présent ouvrage, Nageotte établit que l'origine du tabès ne se situe pas dans les neurones médullaires, comme on l'admettait à l'époque, mais dans une lésion des cordons postérieurs. L'auteur affinera cette notion par la suite en montrant que la lésion initiale se situe au niveau des "nerfs radiculaires", que d'autres auteurs ont pérennisé sous la dénomination de "nerf radiculaire de Nageotte" (racines dorsales). Cette découverte fut longtemps controversée avant de s'imposer définitivement. Bon exemplaire, non coupé, avec ses 10 planches finales de vues microscopiques du système nerveux. Dos consolidé.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Naulakha, Brattleboro, Vermont, 20. XII. 1893. - 8vo. 2 pp. To the American author William H. Rideing (1853-1918): "[.] I am in receipt of yours of the 18th instant suggesting a 2000-2500 w[ord] article for the Companion. Now that I have seen some of the mothers of the youths who read the paper I may perhaps be able to come nearer to its demands. It is very difficult for me to invent notions but I find in my notebooks the story of a young apprentice in the repairing shops of the E.I.R. [East Indian Railways] our Great Indian railroad. We will suppose he is 18 or 19 - sketch the life of the railway community and a railway town in India (Bengal) and make him mend and bring in, on one piston, a broken down loco. in flood time, as he is travelling to a volunteer rifle match. The tale would introduce the country-bred white of the Indian RR's - a parsee engine driver and so on - all the difference that there is between an American + an Indian line. I should prefer 3500 w[ords] to turn in but if you find that does not meet your approval kindly let me know and we will try something else. I used to know something of our Indian railway line. It’s community apart. Very many thanks for Sir E[dwin] Arnolds Jungle Life series. I am doing a set of tales on the same subject more or less for St Nicholas, giving the Jungle people’s views of mankind [.]". - Kipling's works of fiction include "The Jungle Book" (a collection of stories which includes "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi"), the "Just So Stories" (1902), "Kim" (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are enduring classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift". Kipling was one of the most popular writers in England, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date.

Original full vellum designed by Charles Ricketts, decorated and lettered in gilt; pp. [vii], 302; head of spine with a minor scuffing, gold a little faded from spine, front inner hinge stengthened, a few of the entirely uncut margins a little browned. First edition, one of 50 copies of the large paper copy of this collection of essays, several of which reflect the author's travels in Italy. John Addington Symonds (1840â€"1893) was a celebrated poet, essayist and thinker. 'His specific contribution to the regeneration of society was as a pioneer in the field of gay rights; he was the first modern historian of (male) homosexuality, and the first advocate of gay liberation in Britain. When he read Plato's Phaedrus and Symposium in 1858, he realized that the ignoble behaviour of his fellow schoolboys at Harrow had an illustrious past, and when he read Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass in 1865 he became convinced that comradeship had the potential for a no less illustrious future' (Victor Norton, The Life and Writings of John Addington Symonds, online). - The trade issue appeared in cloth.

The map shows various land marks such as post offices, small towns, ferry lines, highways, and more. Point Donalson can be seen on the map next to long point and in between Saint Andrews Bay and East bay. There are also two hand drawn maps of a couple lots in block 12. The small map shows how the lots would back up to St. Andrews bay. There are 18 subdivision plat maps from 1912 to the 1950s. Five plates feature a close up view of the houses while the rest of the plates illustrate the full view of Point Donalson. A small map version of Point Donalson is printed on the last page of the printed brochures. There are four stapled, professionally printed eight page brochures titled "Point Donalson The Beauty Spot on St. Andrew's Bay Parker, Florida" with the printed name of H.V. Roelof's Parker, Washington County, Florida on the next to last page. One section reads, "for years real estate men have been trying to buy this property. We intend to live here ourselves, and knowing the propensity of real estate men to sell to any and every one who has the price, we have not until now disposed of any of it. A few choice residence sites will be sold to desirable people who wish to make summer, winter, or all-the-year-round homes away from the cold winters and hot summers." The brochures include information about the type of people the Donalsons wish to sell their homes to and as said before feature a small map of the location. Many of the documents are business related and there are several letters regarding to the selling of lots from Thomas Sale to Mrs. Logan Bleckley (Anne D. Bleckley) and vice versa. One of which explains how the original copy of the Resolution for the property hadn't been found but a copy had, "Will wonders never cease? How does paper evaporate inside a court house? And isn't the Clerk who copied the missing Resolution in the minutes of the County Commissioners responsible for the fact that it was not duly recorded along with the (also necessary) proof of advertising?" The Resolution was found on November 22, 1958 only three weeks after it went missing. The Resolution for the property as well as proof of advertising in the newspaper is paper clipped to Mr. Sale's letter. The resolution states the family members who own the land and where, "Whereas, it has been made to appear that Logan Bleckley, Jr. Anne D. Bleckley, Henry W. Pearce, Lorna D. Pearce, William G. Donalson, James A. Donalson and Stella W. Donalson, as the owners of certain lands in Section 24, Township 4 South, Range 14 West known as Point Donalson." There is also a ledger book measuring 12" x 7.5", listing accounts of the property heirs including Anne Bleckley, from 1925 to 1956. Most of the land was divided as equally as possible, giving each child a section of Point Donalson. The houses were designed to look mostly the same and follow the same structures as all the others. A couple letters discuss the building limitations in Point Donalson. All lots had to be considered residential housing with a possible garage and separate housing for servants. The ground floor had to be within 1400 square feet with an overall housing value of $7,500.00 or more. Asbestos siding or concrete block was necessary and no temporary housing such as tents or trailers were permitted. The residents were allowed to build a dock on the Donalson Cove and housing owners were expected to have regulation septic tanks instead of dumping waste into the cove. There is also a family photo and extensive information on the family's genealogy collected by Sarah Eliza Donalson included.An extensive collection of information about the Donalson family and their involvement in Point Donalson Florida from 1893 to 1980. .

        Widowers' Houses A Comedy by G Bernard Shaw First Acted by the Independent Theatre in London

      London: Henry and Co, 1893 Book. Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. First Edition, 1893, Good Condition: See Notes, Hardcover, Olive Green Buckram, Gilt Title, 8vo, 126 pp NOTES ON CONDITION: Good Condition; spine bumped, crease at the bottom right hand corner of the cover: see photo. Corner of the flyleaf has been cut off approx: 4cm x 5cm The First Published Play of George Bernard Shaw. Shaw's very scarce first play, published in an edition according to Laurence, of "not more than 500" copies. It was not an overwhelming bestseller. Shaw wrote to John Lane that the publisher "never advertised it even once; and the sale, which was only effected by great perseverance & determination on the part of the purchasers, was 150 copies." When the publisher retired in December 1897, they ceded to Shaw 194 sets of unbound sheets, which Shaw claimed to have commissioned Sotheran & Co. to bind for him. It is unlikely Shaw had all of the copies bound; a considerable number must eventually have been pulped . Shaw began working on his first play destined for production, Widowers' Houses, in 1885 in collaboration with critic William Archer, who supplied the structure. Archer decided that Shaw could not write a play, so the project was abandoned. Years later, Shaw tried again and, in 1892, completed the play without collaboration. Widowers' Houses, a scathing attack on slum landlords, was first performed at London's Royalty Theatre on 9 December 1892. .

        PLAIN TALES FROM THE HILLS.

      London:: Macmillan and Co.,. 1893.. Later printing of the UK edition (the first was in 1890) from a Macmillan Uniform Edition of his works sent by Kipling to Captain (later Rear-Admiral) Robley Dunglison Evans (1846-1912). PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED on title page above the title to Evans, "To the Captain of the 'Indiana' from the author / June 96:" and SIGNED "Rudyard Kipling" above his scored-through printed name. According to Evans' 1901 autobiography, A SAILOR'S LOG, (two copies of which are included), "While refitting in New York, Mr. Rudyard Kipling breakfasted on board with me . . . . Some weeks afterward he was good enough to send me a set of his books. On the title-page of PLAIN TALES FROM THE HILLS, facing a beautiful picture of Sergeant [sic] Mulvaney, done by my dear friend R. F. Zogbaum, he had written the following graceful lines. . . ." The graceful lines he refers to are those of an UNTITLED HOLOGRAPHIC POEM Kipling transcribed and signed on the page opposite the title page. The poem herein is generally unknown as it was never titled or collected by Kipling [Richards, note to E1-65]. (It appeared in Evans' own book, in one other with a few minor transcription mistakes, and also a few times in journals all around the turn of the last century.) The "beautiful picture" Evans refers to is of the character "Private Mulvaney," who makes his first appearance herein. Zogbaum's 4 x 6" gouache painting of Mulvaney is INSCRIBED BY ZOGBAUM, "To Capt R.D. Evans USN / R F Zogbaum / June '96" and pasted to the copyright page with, presumably in Zogbaum's hand, "'Tis the trut' I'm tellin' you" written beneath. KIPLING'S POEM, in four quatrains, begins with "Zogbaum draws with a pencil,/ And I do things with a pen;/ And you sit up in a conning tower/ Bossing eight hundred men." And ends with "'To him that hath shall be given,'/ And that's why these books are sent/ To the man who has lived more stories/ Than Zogbaum or I couLd invent!" Small octavo, blue-cloth boards stamped in gilt and black on front and in gilt on spine. Evans' bookplate on pastedown. Expertly recased with original spine laid down, fine thus. Housed in lambs-wool lined, black cloth-covered clamshell case lettered in gilt on spine. .
