        The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson And the Comedy of Those Extraordinary Twins

      American Publishing Company, Hartford 1894 - 432 pages with illustrated with frontispiece from photograph of Twain with tissue-guard; marginal drawings throughout. Octavo(9" x 6 1/4") bound in original rust decorative cloth, lettered in gilt, grey end-papers and red sprinkled edges. (BAL:3442) First American Edition, First Issue. With BAL first issue points: title page integrally bound (not on a stub), frontispiece with Twain's facsimile autograph 1-7/16" wide, and sheets bulk 1-1/8." Pudd'nhead Wilson is a novel by Mark Twain. It was serialized in The Century Magazine (1893–4), before being published as a novel in 1894. The setting is the fictional Missouri frontier town of Dawson's Landing on the banks of the Mississippi River in the first half of the 19th century. David Wilson, a young lawyer, moves to town and a clever remark of his is misunderstood, which causes locals to brand him a "pudd'nhead")—a nitwit. His hobby of collecting fingerprints does not raise his standing in the townsfolk's eyes, who see him as an eccentric and do not frequent his law practice. Pudd'nhead Wilson moves into the background as the focus shifts to the slave Roxy, her son, and the family they serve. Roxy is only one-sixteenth black, and her son Valet de Chambre (referred to as "Chambers") is only 1/32 black. Roxy is principally charged with caring for her inattentive master's infant son Tom Driscoll, who is the same age as her own son. After fellow slaves are caught stealing and are nearly sold "down the river", to a master further south, Roxy fears for her life and the life of her son. First she decides to kill herself and Chambers to avoid being sold down the river, but then decides instead to switch Chambers and Tom in their cribs so that her son will live a life of privilege. The narrative moves forward two decades, and Tom Driscoll (formerly Valet de Chambre), believing himself to be wholly white and raised as a spoiled aristocrat, has grown to be a selfish and dissolute young man. Tom's father has died and granted Roxy her freedom. Roxy worked for a time on river boats, and saved money for her retirement. When she finally is able to retire, she discovers that her bank has failed and all of her savings are gone. She returns to Dawson's Landing to ask for money from Tom. Tom meets Roxy with derision and Roxy tells him that he is her son, and uses this fact to blackmail him into financially supporting her. Twin Italian noblemen visit the town to some fanfare, and Tom quarrels with one. Then at last, desperate for money, Tom robs and murders his wealthy uncle and the blame falls wrongly on one of the Italians. Thereafter the story takes on the form of a crime novel. In a courtroom scene, the whole mystery is solved when Wilson demonstrates, through fingerprints, that Tom is both the murderer, and not the real Driscoll heir. The book ends in bitter irony. Although the real Tom Driscoll is restored to his rights, his life changes for the worse, for having been raised a slave, he feels intense unease in white society, while as a white man he is forever excluded from the company of blacks. In a final twist, the murdered man's creditors successfully petition the governor to have Tom's death sentence overturned. Now that he is shown to be black, he is a slave, and as such, is rightfully their property. His sale "down the river" helps them recoup their losses. Condition: Corners gently bumped, previous ownership tag to front pastedown else a better than very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        H. C. Goslin. H. M. S. 'Porpoise' China [cover title]

      n.p., n.d., 1894. A sailor's personal record of ships from the British Royal Navy, Japanese Imperial Navy, and the Chinese Beiyang Navy: a unique record in a small notebook compiled by H.C. Goslin measuring 5¾" x 4", unpaginated but approx. 130 pages, containing 26 small black and white albumen photographs showing ships and 35 hand-colored Japanese albumen photographs (3 loosely inserted, one damaged with a little loss along left edge) showing Japanese scenes and people. On the page facing the photographs of the ships Goslin has handwritten details about each ship including its performance and armament specifications, strengths and weaknesses. Most photographs measure approximately 5¼" x 3½". Upper cover and first photograph damp stained, some of the Japanese photographs are a little faded causing the red coloring to show more prominently but overall the photographs are in reasonablly good condition. Wrappers a bit waterstained, and with the spine partially perished. Damp staining has significantly affected the first photograph and text opposite with a little occasional staining on a few other leaves not affecting the photographs. Ships represented in this record are H.M.S. Porpoise 1894 (two photographs one considerably waterstained); H.M.S. Archer 1894; H.M.S. Imperieuse 1893; H.M.S. Centurion, 1894; Japanese Navy ships: Matsushima - 2 photographs; Kongo; Akitsushima; Takow; Yoshino; Naniwa; Yamato; Itsuksuhima; Hashidate; Chiyoda; Fuso 2 images of which one has the photograph reversed; and photographs of the then newly European built Chinese naval vessels from the Beiyang Fleet: Ting Yuen; Lai Yuen; Chen Yuen; E Yuen; the Russian Gunboat Bobi; H.M.S. Mercury; H.M.S. Plover; H.M.S. Servern. There are also handwritten details of a further 5 Japanese ships without accompanying photographs, the Tsukushi, Seiki, Musashi, Rio-Jo, and Yateyama. An interesting and unique personal record of the ships that British sailor, H.C. Goslin was aware of and probably saw while on the China Station. The H.M.S. Archer was serving on the China Station in 1894 when Japanese forces surrounded Seoul. A landing party was sent to protect the British Consul-General after he was threatened by the Japanese forces. Between 7th of September 1900 and the 5th of December 1903, H.M.S. Archer served on the Australia station. H.M.S. Imperieuse served on the Pacific Station 1896-1899. H.M.S. Centurion was the flagship of the China Station between 1894 and 1905 and supported the Allied Forces during the Boxer Rebellion. As well as documenting British ships serving in East Asia in the last years of the 19th century, Goslin records ships from both the Japanese Navy and the ill-fated Chinese Beiyang Navy.

        Mahana Atua [The Day of God]

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Woodcut, 1894-5, on Chine volant, a proof apart from the signed and numbered edition of 100 published by the artist's son, Pola Gauguin in Copenhagen in 1921. Monogram "PGO" in plate lower left, title "Mahana Atua" lower right. Image size 7 1/8" x 8", sight 7 3/4" x 8 3/4", frame 15 1/2" x 16 1/2". In very good condition, not examined out of the frame. Mongan/Kornfeld/Joachim 31. <br><br />Paul Gauguin began to paint in his late 20s. A restless man, he traveled and worked in the French regions of Brittany and Provence as well as South and Central Americas. In 1891, he moved to the French colony of Tahiti in search of "ecstasy, calm, and art." He spent all but two of the remaining years of his life in the South Seas. When he returned to France in 1893, he spent most of his time in Paris promoting his work and writing and illustrating Noa Noa, a fictionalized account of his Tahitian experience. <br><br />Set in a Tahitian landscape by the sea, the composition is divided into three horizontal bands. At the top, islanders perform a ritual near a towering sculpture. Like many figures in Gauguin's Tahitian images, the monumental sculpture was derived not from local religion but from photographs of carved reliefs adorning the Buddhist temple complex at Borobudur (Java). In the middle band, three symmetrically arranged figures are placed against a field of pink earth in poses that may signify birth, life, and death. The woman in the center, formally linked to the sculpture at the top, is similar in appearance to other depictions of Tahitian females who Gauguin used to suggest the Christian figure of Eve in paradise. The lower portion of the composition evokes contrasting hues reflected in the water. Gauguin's Post-Impressionist style, defined by a decreasing tendency to depict real objects and the expressive use of flat, curving shapes, influenced many abstract painters of the early 20th century.

It carries as many singing and dancing 'specialties' as Mr. Hoyt ever out into 'The Tin Soldier' or 'The Brass Monkey'; but those specialties are not introduced in the usual 'I'll-sing-a-song-that-will-tell-you-all-about-it' style."<br><br>Charles H. Hoyt was a popular American dramatist in the late 19th century. He wrote over twenty comedy dramas, often involving baseball. This is a scarce poster for one of his popular work.<br><br>The poster is in good condition with some wear along the folds. Minor edge wear and toning at places. Large rip on the right hand of the poster, repaired on verso.

        The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson And the Comedy of Those Extraordinary Twins

      432 pages with illustrated with frontispiece from photograph of Twain with tissue-guard; marginal drawings throughout. Octavo(9" x 6 1/4") bound in original rust decorative cloth, lettered in gilt, grey end-papers and red sprinkled edges. (BAL:3442) First American Edition, First Issue.With BAL first issue points: title page integrally bound (not on a stub), frontispiece with Twain's facsimile autograph 1-7/16" wide, and sheets bulk 1-1/8."Pudd'nhead Wilson is a novel by Mark Twain. It was serialized in The Century Magazine (1893–4), before being published as a novel in 1894. The setting is the fictional Missouri frontier town of Dawson's Landing on the banks of the Mississippi River in the first half of the 19th century. David Wilson, a young lawyer, moves to town and a clever remark of his is misunderstood, which causes locals to brand him a "pudd'nhead")—a nitwit. His hobby of collecting fingerprints does not raise his standing in the townsfolk's eyes, who see him as an eccentric and do not frequent his law practice. Pudd'nhead Wilson moves into the background as the focus shifts to the slave Roxy, her son, and the family they serve. Roxy is only one-sixteenth black, and her son Valet de Chambre (referred to as "Chambers") is only 1/32 black. Roxy is principally charged with caring for her inattentive master's infant son Tom Driscoll, who is the same age as her own son. After fellow slaves are caught stealing and are nearly sold "down the river", to a master further south, Roxy fears for her life and the life of her son. First she decides to kill herself and Chambers to avoid being sold down the river, but then decides instead to switch Chambers and Tom in their cribs so that her son will live a life of privilege. The narrative moves forward two decades, and Tom Driscoll (formerly Valet de Chambre), believing himself to be wholly white and raised as a spoiled aristocrat, has grown to be a selfish and dissolute young man. Tom's father has died and granted Roxy her freedom. Roxy worked for a time on river boats, and saved money for her retirement. When she finally is able to retire, she discovers that her bank has failed and all of her savings are gone. She returns to Dawson's Landing to ask for money from Tom. Tom meets Roxy with derision and Roxy tells him that he is her son, and uses this fact to blackmail him into financially supporting her. Twin Italian noblemen visit the town to some fanfare, and Tom quarrels with one. Then at last, desperate for money, Tom robs and murders his wealthy uncle and the blame falls wrongly on one of the Italians. Thereafter the story takes on the form of a crime novel. In a courtroom scene, the whole mystery is solved when Wilson demonstrates, through fingerprints, that Tom is both the murderer, and not the real Driscoll heir. The book ends in bitter irony. Although the real Tom Driscoll is restored to his rights, his life changes for the worse, for having been raised a slave, he feels intense unease in white society, while as a white man he is forever excluded from the company of blacks. In a final twist, the murdered man's creditors successfully petition the governor to have Tom's death sentence overturned. Now that he is shown to be black, he is a slave, and as such, is rightfully their property. His sale "down the river" helps them recoup their losses.Condition:Corners gently bumped, previous ownership tag to front pastedown else a better than very good copy.
