        Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar for 1894

      Dawson's Landing, Mo.: Set Up and Printed for Mr. Wilson by Henry Butts, 1894. 16pp. Mark Twain's smallest first edition, form C (no priority). Issued as an advertisement for The Century Magazine, which was running "Pudd'nhead Wilson" in serial form. The calendar may have been produced from multiple, not duplicate, settings, and it is possible that all three forms were issued simultaneously. Each month shows a droll paragraph from Mark Twain, such as the one that ends: "put all your eggs in one basket and--watch that basket." Contains an illustration of "Thumb Prints," and a long quotation in which Pudd'nhead discusses the new method of detecting by means of fingerprints. The typesetting is intentionally and comically incompetent, with letters upside down. A delightful, very rare, and fragile Twain item. 1/8 inch tear to cover, still unusually fine in printed yellow wrappers. (BAL 3439). (3 by 2 1/2; 76x60mm).

Journal illustré de nombreux dessins en couleurs et en noir et blanc, parfois en pleine page voire en double page, ainsi que de partitions musicales. Gil Blas est un ancien hebdomadaire de presse écrite français, fondé par Auguste Dumont, qui a paru du 19 novembre 1879 au 4 août 1914, puis très épisodiquement du 20 janvier 1921 à mars 1940. Pendant une période, à partir du 17 novembre 1909, il fut dirigé par Henri de Noussanne et Pierre de Maroussein. Le Gil Blas se voulut d'abord littéraire. De grandes plumes s'y exprimèrent dans des chroniques qui connurent un vif succès : Guy de Maupassant (ou Maufrigneuse) dont la collaboration fut la plus longue (1881-1888), Paul Arène, Émile Bergerat, Clovis Hugues, René Maizeroy, Jean Richepin, etc. Tout aussi importants étaient les feuilletons, signés par Émile Zola, Hector Malot, Théodore de Banville, et Octave Mirbeau notamment. De son côté, Maupassant y publia « Une vie » (février-avril 1883), « Bel Ami » (avril-mai 1885), « Mont-Oriol » (décembre 1886-jévrier 1887), etc. Outre ces chroniques et ces feuilletons, Zola défendit certaines de ses œuvres dans le journal, par le biais des « Lettres au Directeur » (sur « le Rêve », 8 novembre 1888 ; sur « la Bête humaine », 13 novembre 1889). - Gil Blas, Paris _1894, 27,5x41cm. -

Classic First Editions, First Issue. Wonderfully illustrated in black & white throughout by Kipling's father, J. Lockwood Kipling with W. H. Drake & P. Frenzeny.

A lovely near fine or better copy, all edges gilt WITH The Second Jungle Book bound in gilt ruled & titled half red calf & linen, five raised bands, covers bound in at the rear. A fine excellent example. "This most desirable pair will always fill an honorable place in any library of children's books" (Quayle 87). Richards A76 & A85; Stewart 123 & 132. Livingston 104, 116. A lovely mixed set of one of the cornerstone titles in children's literature & Kipling highlight & along with Just So Stories, his most beloved work. Custom red & blue leather slipcase. First published in magazine format in 1893-4. British Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling was born in India lived there & in England & wrote these stories when he lived in Vermont. The tales are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families & communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle." Other readers have interpreted the work as allegories of the politics & society of the time. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned "man cub" Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian Jungle with the help of Baloo the bear & Bagheera the black panther, & then has to fight the tiger Shere Khan. The most famous of the other stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, & "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. "The White Seal", in which the main character seeks a haven for his people where they would be safe from hunters, has been considered a metaphor for Zionism, then in its beginning. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is preceded by a piece of verse, & succeeded by another. $2475. 1st Edition. Illus. by J. Lockwood Kipling with W. H. Drake & P. Frenzeny.

      London, 1894, 1895: MacMillan, 1894 From TBCL's Children's Bookcase. Kipling, Rudyard THE JUNGLE BOOK AND THE SECOND JUNGLE BOOK. London: Macmillan, 1894, 1895. 8vo. 212, 238p.

A lovely near fine or better copy, all edges gilt WITH The Second Jungle Book bound in gilt ruled & titled half red calf & linen, five raised bands, covers bound in at the rear. A fine excellent example. "This most desirable pair will always fill an honorable place in any library of children's books" (Quayle 87). Richards A76 & A85; Stewart 123 & 132. Livingston 104, 116. A lovely mixed set of one of the cornerstone titles in children's literature & Kipling highlight & along with Just So Stories, his most beloved work. Custom red & blue leather slipcase. First published in magazine format in 1893-4. British Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling was born in India lived there & in England & wrote these stories when he lived in Vermont. The tales are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families & communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle." Other readers have interpreted the work as allegories of the politics & society of the time. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned "man cub" Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian Jungle with the help of Baloo the bear & Bagheera the black panther, & then has to fight the tiger Shere Khan. The most famous of the other stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, & "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. "The White Seal", in which the main character seeks a haven for his people where they would be safe from hunters, has been considered a metaphor for Zionism, then in its beginning. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is preceded by a piece of verse, & succeeded by another. $2475. 1st Edition. Illus. by J. Lockwood Kipling with W. H. Drake & P. Frenzeny.
