On October 9th they copyrighted the same tale as SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. (It was also during the month of October that Sampson Low published its edition in London.) Then on November 10th, Lovell Coryell published THE SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT (adding a "THE"), with 52 illustrations, as here (Lovell Coryell was affiliated with United States Book Co., and the latter&#39;s copyright appears on this copy&#39;s copyright page). It was also so issued in wrappers. By December, E. A. Weeks of Chicago also came out with an edition of this title.</p> <p>This is a very good-plus copy (minor soil and edge-wear, marginal chip in one ad leaf, faint crease in rear board). This is one of the toughest American Vernes to find, and this is only the second copy we have seen in thirty years. Taves & Michaluk V040.</p> (Sumner & Stillman Code:11924)

        Letters . .. Edited by Mabel Loomis Todd

      Boston: Roberts Brothers 1894 Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1894. First edition. 2 vols., Small 8vo. Engraved frontispieces (portrait in vol. I; Dickinson home in vol. II), 3 facsimile letters; [iv], xii, 228; [viii], 229-454 pp. Original green buckram, covers and spines stamped in gilt with Indian pipes motif (BAL's variant 1). Spine of volume I darkened with some loss of gilt, light shelfwear. Very good. Volume II supplied from another set, near fine. In custom morocco-backed slipcase and chemise. BAL 4660; Myerson A3.1.a (notes only three copies inscribed by Todd). Provenance: A.J. Lyman (his ownership inscription to flyleaf, "A.J. Lyman / Brooklyn New York," and presentation inscription from editor on half-title) . Volume I INSCRIBED to Mabel Loomis Todd's confidant and perhaps the first independent reader of the proofs of the LETTERS, Albert Josiah Lyman: "To Dr. Lyman / from /Mabel Loomis Todd / Amherst, / 17 Decr 1894." Todd met Lyman, minister of the South Congregational Church of Brooklyn, in February of 1894 while on a lecture tour. In a letter, dated 13 February 1894, to her ailing lover Austin Dickinson, Todd mentions with delight that "I have had an independent literary judgement on the proof of the LETTERS this morning which fills me with joy." The favorable judgement was pronounced by Lyman, who Longsworth describes as "Handsome, sympathetic, liberal in his views, and a clergyman of great pastoral power ..." (AUSTIN AND MABEL, p. 380n). After Austin Dickinson's death, "Dr. Lyman was the one [Todd] confided in and from whom she received remarkable and unorthodox consolation" (ibid). In January, 1894, Todd sent proofs of the LETTERS to every correspondent who allowed letters from Dickinson to be published (Meyerson, p. 34), and it is likely that Lyman was the first independent critic of the work. No one played a more crucial part in the early acceptance of Dickinson as a major American poet than Mabel Loomis Todd. She was the first posthumous steward of Dickinson's work, seeing the poems and letters into print for the first time. Meyerson notes only three copies of the LETTERS inscribed by Todd, all dated December, 1894. No significant inscribed copies of the LETTERS have appeared at auction in the last 30 years

        Antibarbarus I oder die Welt für sich und die Welt für mich.

      Berlin, Lewent'sche Buchdruckerei, 1894. (2),78 s. Samtida gult hklbd med lätt nött grön titeletikett. Marmorerade snitt. Tyvärr bunden utan omslag. Med Thore Virgins namnteckning daterad 1949 på främre pärmens insida och dedikation från författaren till G. Mittag-Leffler på titelbladet. Dedikationen skuren överst med obetydliga textförluster.. Zetterlund I:59. Allt som utkom. Utgavs av Bibliographisches Bureau som även publicerade översättningar av bl.a. "En dåres försvarstal" och "Tjänstekvinnans son" vid samma tid. Första svenska utgåvan kom 1906. I början av 1890-talet intresserade sig Strindberg mer och mer för naturvetenskapliga frågor. Under sin Paristid 1894-95 kom han i kontakt med några av de främsta företrädarna för den "moderna alkemin". Han genomförde en lång rad experiment bl.a. efter hypoteserna att antalet grundämnen var betydligt färre än den etablerade vetenskapen hävdade och att man i laboratoriet kunde förvandla ett grundämne till ett annat och t.ex. skapa guld. Strindberg var mån om att sprida sina alkemiska spekulationer i vetenskapliga kretsar. Gösta Mittag-Leffler var framstående teoretisk matematiker och verkade mycket för internationellt samarbete inom sin disciplin, bl.a. genom grundandet och utgivandet av tidskriften "Acta matematica". Han umgicks även tillsammans med sin syster Anna Charlotta Leffler i Stockholms konstnärs- och författarkretsar. August Strindberg hade lärt känna honom personligen 1891-92. Samma år som "Antibarbarus" gavs ut upptäckte engelska kemister grundämnet argon. De hade utgått från iakttagelsen att kvävgas som utvanns ur kväveföreningar var lättare än kvävgas framställd ur luften. Detta förhållande hade även Strindberg intresserat sig för. I ett brev till Birger Mörner den 21 maj 1895 nämner han att "Prof. Leffler var i Oxford när argon creerades och var nog patriot upplysa att en svensk luktat på ämnet tre månar förut." Detta syftar på "Antibarbarus" tredje kapitel där Strindberg redovisar sina teorier om kvävet. Senare bedömare har tillskrivit Strindbergs naturvetenskapliga skriverier ett visst konstnärligt och poetiskt värde, men knappast något vetenskapligt. Själv var han av en annan uppfattning

Set during the early years of the 19th century, this pre-Civil War satire tackles social commentary issues still being debated today. 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. Twain uses humor and irony in revealing seething levels of racism and classicism .
