        ADRIFT IN THE PACIFIC

      1894 - New and Cheaper Edition. Illustrated. London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company, 1894. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black. "New and Cheaper Edition," issued five years after Sampson Low's first U.K. edition, in a similar binding (showing Briant diving into the water from a giant kite) and with the same illustrations. In this tale, a dozen young boys are shipwrecked without adults on a desert island, and struggle to survive during the two years they await rescue; they divide into two antagonistic groups, with quite different philosophies. This adventure has often been cited as a precursor to William Golding's rather similar LORD OF THE FLIES (1954).~This tale was first published in 1888 as DEUX ANS DE VACANCES, and in English in early 1889 by George Munro in his cheap wrappered "Seaside Library," as A TWO YEARS' VACATION. In November 1889 Sampson Low published ADRIFT IN THE PACIFIC, a hardbound illustrated ("two parts in one") version, being a different translation.~This copy has been recased within its original binding, preserving the original light yellow endpapers (reinforced at the inner hinges) -- but is otherwise near-fine (very minor rubbing of the spine gilt).

        A Veteran of 1812: The Life of James Fitzgibbon

      William Briggs, Toronto 1894 - SCARCE 1st CANADIAN EDITION IN VERY GOOD+ CONDITION 1st. Small Octavo. Red cloth with gilt decoration of swords and a facsimile signature on front. Contents are clean and tight. 347 pages including Appendices plus Preface and Table of Contents. Frontispiece portrait, facsimile of Fitzgibbon's handwriting, fold-out facsimile of a letter from Isaac Brock, full page illustrations, photographs and maps. Condition: Very Good+. Inserted two newspaper articles relating to the death of the author in 1915 and to the subject of this book the author's father who died at Windsor Castle. Also inserted is a silk red ribbon with "Lundy's Lane 1814" printed on it. Likely a centenary item from 1914. , Fitzgibbon is one of the most underrated Canadian historical figures being directly involved in two of the major historical events in Upper Canada in the first half of the 19th century. He was in the British attack on the American encampment at Stoney Creek in the early hours of June 6, 1813. They then marched with the rest of the 49th Regiment to begin a loose siege of Fort George. FitzGibbon was successful in using guerilla warfare, with First Nations allies. Their tactics were to harass the Americans camped at Fort George, attack their supply lines and ambush any soldiers who strayed far from the protection of Fort George. He had proven his initiative in this type of guerilla war and was given command of a select group of infantrymen and stationed at the DeCew House in present-day Thorold, Ontario. FitzGibbon is known to be the senior officer whom Laura Secord warned of the American surprise attack now known he Battle of Beaver Dams (or the Battle of the Beechwoods). This battle was won by the outnumbered 50 British soldiers, however in fact it was the up to 400 natives who did the actual fighting. He remained quite active for the duration of the war, including in the Battle of Lundyís Lane.He also was the defender in Toronto of the Rebellion in 1837 and successful in defeating the mob preparing to attack Toronto. From the Preface, "I have had the book published in Canada rather than in England, preferring it should first see the light of day in the city whose loyalty and homes he had guarded with so jealous an arm in life, and to which his last conscious thoughts returned in the hour of death."

Twain presents the reader with a light-skinned black mother switching her infant with her white master's in order to prevent her own child being raised as a slave.

        THE BANDITTI OF THE PLAINS OR THE CATTLEMEN'S INVASION OF WYOMING IN 1892 (THE CROWNING INFAMY OF THE AGES.)

      [Denver. 1894].. Preliminary leaf printing ordering information, 139pp. Original black cloth. Slight fraying and wear at extremities, inner front hinge cracked, neat book label and ownership signature on endsheets, else very good. In cloth slipcase, leather label. One of the most famous books on the cattle industry, growing out of the Johnson County War in Wyoming in 1892, which pitted the large, established members of the Wyoming Stockgrowers Association against the smaller cattlemen and squatters on the range. In the course of the bloody conflict, Mercer, editor of the NORTHWESTERN LIVESTOCK GROWER, published in Cheyenne, took the side of the small growers and produced this vitriolic work. The book is said to have been suppressed, and may have been to a certain extent, but a fair number of copies exist today, although it certainly remains rare. The book is often listed as being printed in Cheyenne, but Mercer's children maintain that it was printed in Denver, where Adams agrees it was bound. Its importance is great, chronicling one of the last major upheavals of frontier violence in the wars for the open range against fencing. It has since appeared in many later editions.

Précieux exemplaire de dédicace. Tarnier a dédié cet ouvrage à Herrgott et lui a offert cet exemplaire, qui comporte un envoi autographe signé de sa main. Herrgott est un autre grand nom de l'obstétrique et de l'antisepsie. "Il a participé ardemment à la lutte contre la fièvre puerpérale à la Faculté de médecine de Strasbourg, puis de Nancy" (H.Stofft). Il existe deux annotations manuscrites, sans doute de la main de Herrgott : indication du lieu et de la date de la mort de Tarnier à la suite de ses principaux titres indiqués sur la page de titre, et mention "Lauréat et correspondant de l'Institut" à la suite des principaux titres de Herrgot sur la page de dédicace. Très bel exemplaire, à grandes marges et d'une grande fraîcheur. Édition originale très rare. Stéphane Tarnier fut le premier à adapter la méthode de Lister à l'obstétrique, avec l'utilisation du phénol. Il contribua aussi beaucoup à développer l'asepsie, utilisant une technique d'exclusion péritonéale pour la césarienne. Le but constant de sa vie professionnelle, depuis sa thèse jusqu'à la fin de sa carrière, a été de faire disparaître la fièvre puerpérale. Tarnier réduisit considérablement la mortalité maternelle liée à la fièvre puerpérale, qui passa de 9,3 % à 1 % cf. GARRISON & MORTON, 5639 : "Tarnier was the first to adopt Listerism in obstetrics" ; Cutter & Viets, p.194 : "Tarnier is best remembered for axis traction forceps, but he also gained fame as the first to adopt Listerism in obstetrics The book on asepsis and antisepsis, with particular stress on obstetrics, was based on Tarnier's lectures at the Maternité, as rearranged by his assistant, J.Potocki. This elaborate treatise of over 800 pages is A LANDMARK IN THE HISTORY OF OBSTETRICS." ; Heirs of Hippocrates, 1940 ; H.Stofft, La fièvre puerpérale au XIXème siècle, Conférences rennaises d'histoire de la médecine et de la santé, cycle 1987-1988.

        The Poetical Works

      [by Spottiswoode and Co for] Smith, Elder, & Co, London 1894 - Frontispiece portraits in vols. 3, 7, 8, 10 and 16. 17 volumes. Large 8vo. 237 x 157 x 685 mm]. Original tan cloth, the spines printed paper labels, plain endleaves, uncut edges. (Spines darkened, four labels defective and others chipped, some endleaves browned, and a little rubbed and marked). Limited to 250 copies on hand-made paper. There are a few minor spots and the bindings show some signs of wear but it is a decent copy. Browning died in 1889, so these are his final words. Vol.1 is inscribed in ink on the front endleaf: "I gave this set to my mother as it was published. Stanley Baldwin", vols 3 and 17 have pencil inscriptions "Louisa Baldwin from S.B." and all the volumes have the large bookplate of Louisa Baldwin designed by M.D. Johnston and dated 1922. Stanley Baldwin (1867-1947) served three times as British Prime Minister, in 1923-24, 1924-29 and 1935-37. He was the only child of Alfred and Louisa Baldwin, who married in 1866. Louisa (1845-1925) was the youngest of the four remarkable Macdonald sisters. Alice (1837-1910) was the mother of Rudyard Kipling, Georgina (1840-1920) married the painter Sir Edward Burne-Jones and Agnes (1843-1906) married the painter Sir Edward Poynter. Alfred Baldwin was a successful Worcestershire ironmaker and the couple lived at Wilden House, near to the works. Louisa suffered from poor health but read widely and wrote four novels, along with poetry and collections of stories. She encouraged her son's love of literature, although he failed to shine at Harrow, or Trinity College, Cambridge, from where he graduated with a third in 1888. He returned home to work in the family firm and became Managing Director in 1902. He inherited almost £200,000 on his father's death in 1908, and remained engaged in business until appointed to his first ministerial office in 1917.
