The first, and perhaps the style which had brought him the greater part of his income to date, was the blood-and-thunder boy's adventure story manner of... books such as The Money-Spinner and Charles O'Malley" (Hamilton). "Vivid, rollicking adventures of military life and hard-drinking, fox-hunting Irish society. A story of the Peninsular War, a medley of boisterous fun, humorous character, love-making, and martial adventure, many being good stories redressed. The great war amid which these scenes are enacted, and the romantic countries and inhabitants of Portugal, Spain, and France, afford a great variety of scenery, of adventure, and of comic and tragic incident -- the interest never flags for a moment.

Her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852) was a depiction of life for African Americans under slavery; it reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential in the United States and United Kingdom. It energized anti-slavery forces in the American North, while provoking widespread anger in the South. In addition to this, Beecher wrote more than twenty books, including novels, three travel memoirs, and collections of articles and letters. She was influential for both her writings and her public stands on social issues of the day. Here, her most significant works are drawn together in one set. Ideal for collectors of abolition or women's literature. BAL 19508 and 19509. [Attributes: First Edition]

Wells, H. G. [Herbert George]
SAMMELBAND OF THE FULL ISSUES FROM APRIL to DECEMBER, 1897, TOGETHER INCLUDING ALL 22 CHAPTERS of THE SERIALIZED STORY. It is unusual for all chapters of this serialization to be offered together. The individual issues in which this serialized story appeared have been bound together; the issues are complete, inclusive of the first page of each issue as well as the frontispiece. Large 8vo. Beautifully rebound in half calf over marbled paper boards; five gilt-ruled bands at the spine and two spine labels, the first reading "The Cosmopolitan Apr-Dec 1897," the second "H.G. Wells War of the Worlds Illustrated by Warwick Goble." The binding is in fine condition: solid, bright and clean. The interior is pristine. Fine condition. The Cosmopolitan publication offered here ran concurrently with its serialization in the British magazine Pearson's. Wells' serialization is famously accompanied by the fantastical illustrations of Warick Goble, a well-known late 19th, early 20th century artist. Both publications appeared the year before the book of the same title was published. This precedes the 1898 publication of the book by one year. "H.G. Wells' tales of Martian invasion, never-before-seen beings, time travel, and alien invasion disturbed the public by combining journalistic sensationalism, scientific fantasy, suburban mundanity and fears of invasion. The attitude towards science among the 19th-century intellectual elite was one of amusement. The subject was believed to be slightly remote - as vulgar and inessential as the technology of underground trains, telephones and internal-com … [Click Below for Full Description]

William McKinley
Washington DC: 1897. Out of a local home, this small snapshot photo album has eight 3.5" square photographs of the first inauguration parade for President William McKinley held March 4, 1897. I believe the photo entitled "Returning from the Capitol" is of the President and his Vice-President Garret Hobart. There are some other very nice snapshots in the album, these are clearly of historic interest. Black cloth album has spotting and corner wear. Photographs are faded with time.

William McKinley
1897. Photograph. Very Good. Out of a local home, this small snapshot photo album has eight 3.5" square photographs of the first inauguration parade for President William McKinley held March 4, 1897. I believe the photo entitled "Returning from the Capitol" is of the President and his Vice-President Garret Hobart. There are some other very nice snapshots in the album, these are clearly of historic interest. Black cloth album has spotting and corner wear. Photographs are faded with time.

Although there were other translations of the Nights in English, Burton's was distinguished by his retention of the sexual content of the original Arabic versions, while his extensive footnotes drew on a lifetime of travel and research... [it] has become the pre-eminent English translation of the Middle Eastern classic. It is the keystone of Burton's literary reputation" (ODNB). Burton first published his translation in 16 volumes from 1885 to 1888.

Cincinnati, Ohio: The Fireside Game Co. The United States Playing Card Company, 1897. Card. (Stiff wraps). . Very Good. Scarce card game trade catalogue, with only a single catalogue of this line found on OCLC First Search, and that particular catalogue is for a later year (1899) and somewhat smaller as well. (Held by the Ohio Historical Connection.) Oblong, 12 by 16.5 cm. Title page, price list and 18 chromolithograph plates. The card games being promoted in this catalogue all have a supposed educational benefit. The games are called "Strange People"; "Election"; "Wild Animals"; "Oak Leaves"; "The Pines"; "Maple Grove"; "Our Union"; "Populations Around the World"; "Flags of All Nations"; "In the White House"; "In Dixie-land"; "Artists". Some of the games are very much of their period, reflecting the mores and prejudices prevalent then. The most egregious example of this is, you guessed right, "In Dixie-Land", which carries the caption: Characteristic glimpses of southern negro life. Happy sketches of a happy people", and which, in the card shown as a specimen features two black boys eating watermelon. Other games, such as those relating to trees, concern the identification of various types of pines or maples, exercises that one can not imagine being a part of the curriculum, or even sub-curriculum, today. Overall the games are about the accumulation of facts, such as populations, or the names of castles.

Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe (June 14, 1811 - July 1, 1896) was an American abolitionist and author. Her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852) was a depiction of life for African Americans under slavery; it reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential in the United States and United Kingdom. It energized anti-slavery forces in the American North, while provoking widespread anger in the South. In addition to this, Beecher wrote more than twenty books, including novels, three travel memoirs, and collections of articles and letters. She was influential for both her writings and her public stands on social issues of the day. Here, her most significant works are drawn together in one set. Ideal for collectors of abolition or women's literature. BAL 19508 and 19509. [Attributes: First Edition]

Hallie Erminie Rives (1874-1956)
London and New York: F. Tennyson Neely Publisher, (1897). 232, [8 (publisher' adverts)]pp., top-edge gilt. First Edition. Small 8vo. Publisher's decorative cloth trade bookbinding, signed "HBM" for Harry B. Matthews. Bookseller's ticket from San Antonio, Texas. Spine with rubbing, per usual, boards with scattered foxing; very good. Rare first edition. Controversial novel in favor of lynching, written by Southern woman author, Hallie Erminie Rives (1874-1956). The book concerns issues of slavery and accusations of rape and murder of a white woman by a black man. From the introduction: "Smoking Flax" is a story of the South written by a young Kentucky woman. Undoubtedly in the South its advent will be saluted with enthusiastic bravos. What will be the nature of its reception in the North it is hazardous to predict. One thing, however, can be confidently prophesied for it everywhere-consideration. This the subject and manner of its treatment assures. The methods of Judge Lynch viewed from most standpoints are, without extenuation, evil; from a few aspects they may appear to be perhaps not wholly without justification. Miss Rives, through the medium of romance, presents the question as seen from many sides, and then leaves to the reader the responsibility of determining "what is truth," though where her own sympathies lie she does not leave much in doubt." "Judge Lynch" here is a reference to Virginia jurist Charles Lynch (1736-1796), noted for his support of summary trials and extra-judicial proceedings during the American Revolution. By the time of the publication of Rives' S … [Click Below for Full Description]
