Frederic M. Halford
Very Good. Dry Fly Entomology: A brief description of leading types of natural insects with the 100 best patterns of floating flies and the various methods of dressing them- Frederic M. Halford. Published by Vinton & Co,. London. Two volumes. Edition de Luxe 1897. No. 81 of 100 limited copies., signed by the author on the title page of each volume. Both volume rebacked in 2010 to duplicate the original crushed green Morocco goatskin binding and original marbled endpapers. Volume One: 314 uncut pages, gilt top edge. 10 exquisite hand colored engraved plates of 100 dry flies with tissue guards, 18 b&w wood engravings of natural insects also with tissue guards, and numerous b&w illustrations throughout the text. There are no foxing on the text pages, minute foxing on few of the other pages, and with some aging on the edges. Volume two: 12 boards, all edges gilt. Beveled recessed boards containing 100 original tied dry flies, as described in volume one, mounted with fine wire. Fly #46 is missing as shown.

The flies were dressed with perfection and survived the ravages of time well. However, the original covers literately disintegrated and necessitated replacement. The price has been reduced to reflect the missing fl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Facsimile. Light wear to spine and boards' corners. No writing, inscriptions or turned down corners. Solid binding, tight and square. Clean and bright text (Lovely Copy) (Please see pictures). Scarce, attractive and unusual item. I was not able to find anything quite comparable having sold at auctions or anywhere else. (I have researched and contacted several book experts about this copy. I have received different opinions; while some confirmed that it is genuine copy done by Traquair; However; I got a response from Elizabeth Cumming who worked with the National Library of Scotland and researched Phoebe Anna Traquair over many years. "the binding is not by Traquair herself but possibly by one of her Edinburgh associates. The monogram on the lower right corner verso is her (for I think probably a woman binder) mark. The monogram in the centre verso would be the initials of the person for whom it was made. The plain uncoloured leather is typical of work of the group of women including Traquair and Annie Macdonald who met in the Dean Studio in the late 1890s and early 1900s under the aegis of the Edinburgh Arts & Crafts Club and who exhibited their books with the Guild of Women Binders in London and also, in 1900, in Paris.") 44 love sonnets written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning Sonnets from the Portuguese is a collection of 44 love sonnets written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The collection was acclaimed and popular during the poet's lifetime and it remains so. The most famous poems from this collection are numbers 33 and 43.

Commonwealth vs. Lorenzo W. Barnes, May, 1897; Folio, 821 pages, typewritten trial transcript by the Clerk of Superior Court, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Bound in full leather. Large, heavy book. Up for auction is a unique one of a kind typewritten transcript of an axe murder trial that took place in Massachusetts in 1897. It is the only official record we have of the entirety of the trial and was never published except here in this typewritten manuscript. The title of the sensation murder trial was Commonwealth vs Lorenzo W. Barnes, and the trial took place in May of 1897. Barnes was accused of murdering his neighbor with an axe, the grisly crime making all the major papers at the time. There were many witnesses both for the defense and the prosecution, and the whole thing reads like a old detective novel. Barnes was found guilty of the crime and put to death a few months late by the State of Massachusetts. The book is divided into 3 parts- the impaneling of the jury and the opening statements on both sides, the statements under oath of the witnesses for the Commonwealth (411 pages), and the statements under oath of the witnesses for the defense (410 pages). The verdict is on the last page. Again, this is the only record existing of the totality of this lurid trial, and thus is a valuable piece of crime history. Condition is excellent.

John Wisden
For sale here is an 1897 Wisden Publisher's Hardback in absolutely immaculate condition - probably the best that we have seen.A really FINE example. The book has had no restoration. The front and rear boards are in flat, bright, almost as new condition. To be really picky there is a tiny blemish at the junction of the front board and spine at the very top but this really is scarcely noticeable The gilt is as new to the front board. The spine and spine gilt are in fabulous condition. The front and rear hinges are extremely strong and the yellow end papers, both front and rear, are bright and unmarked. The contents and photographic plate are complete, original, unmarked and in fine condition. A fabulous copy of one of the very rarest Wisden.In my experience the 96 and 97 hardbacks are certainly the scarcest of all the hardbacks and come to the market very rarely and when they do they are very unlikely to appear in as good condition as the book offered here.

Louis Gansler
Unpublished Manuscript. This is a delightful manuscript book created by a Louis Gansler as a souvenir for his Cousins Elizabeth (Lizzie) Meadows and Frederick H. Wagner of 71 Whalley Banks, Blackburn on Tuesday 6th July 1897 to celebrate their marriage at the Mill Hill Congregational Church, Chapel Street, Blackburn the book is entirely handwritten with some charming water colour paintings and painted decoration, with the addition of some photographs, wedding invitation cards, and associated telegrams, The account has been done in a very humorous style. The account starts commenting that the wedding took place in the Diamond Jubilee Year of Queen Victoria, and on the day there was a great bustle of excitement in the Town Of Mill Hill and with the crowds of people milling around it would hardly have required a "Sherlock Holmes" intellect to have given a good guess as to the nature of the anticipated event, , the marriage of Lizzie Meadows and Wagner's Lad, a small vignette painting shows the crowds of well-wishers outside the church, with mention of the half dozen carriages arriving and the buzz of excitement, the wedding ceremony itself carried out by Rev. William Angus, and Mr Shaw on the Organ, the party all had breakfast afterwards, then the afternoon party all went in Char-a-bancs to "The Calf's Head" in the village of Worston near Clitheroe in the Shire of Lancaster, at the foot of Pendle Hill for food and celebrations including Games, Singing, and an evening Concert, some of the party even venturing up Pendle Hill to see the remains of the celebratory bonfire that had … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rubert W Whitcomb
Hanover, New Hampshire: , 1897-1901. Unique Dartmouth College Student Scrapbook Class of 1901Rubert W Whitcomb, Dartmouth College Class 1901Theta Delta Chi11 ½ x 14 inches, 5 inches thick at spine. There is some damage to the hinge as shown. Internally the condition is remarkable despite the album's leaves being of rather poor quality paper. Filled with hundreds of photographic prints (produced by the cyanotype process), letters of acceptance, invitations, hotel menus, tickets, theater programs, student bills, fraternity memorabilia, sports memorabilia and items too numerous to list. There is even a paper napkin presumably from Whitcomb's favorite Boston Chinese restaurant! Many original envelopes containing invitations are pasted in. The photographs range from local scenes such as the Wilder Falls on the Connecticut River (now hydroelectric dam) the covered Ledyard Bridge, College buildings, to images of students, Whitcomb's rooms and many personal photographs.Included is a collection of additional ephemera the Whitcomb did not include in the album.Whitcomb was an obsessive sort. The thoroughness of his four years collecting is astounding and the range of artifacts included is also astounding.Whitcomb was involved in undergraduate theater and participated in several productions. After graduation he taught at Norwich University in Northfield VT.This item presents a unique window on life at Dartmouth College at the end of the 19thcentury.This is a large, heavy item and will be carefully packaged.

Top edges gilt, others edges untrimmed. Octavos (22 x 15 cm.). Each with engraved frontispiece. Although published under Charles Scribner's imprint, this first collected edition of Kipling's works was made possible by F.N. Doubleday, whose first job in the publishing business was gathering subscriptions for his eventual competitor. In his memoirs, Doubleday wrote that one day someone asked: "Will you get me a complete set of Kipling in uniform binding?' I told him that it did not exist. That gave me an idea that perhaps I could get permission to make a uniform set. The difficulties of the job, even now that I look back on it, were tremendous." The difficulty was that Kipling's works were published by four different companies - and none of them Scribner's. Doubleday solicited the help of Kipling himself and with the success of this venture began their decades long friendship and partnership, which prospered once Doubleday began publishing under his own imprint. The 32 volumes comprise all of the volumes publi … [Click Below for Full Description]

The owner's inscription (dated 15/XII/1902) on the wrapper. The private stamp of L.E. Gakkel on the title verso. Good clean copy. The binding is shattered, one of the signatures can be detached. The edges of the binding are rubbed, the paper on corner of the rear board is missing. Rare. First edition. The ground-breaking work in the field of physiology. Undoubtedly one of the main works of Russian science. Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936) was a Russian physiologist who contributed to many areas of neurological sciences. During the 1890s he was looking at salivation in dogs as a response to being fed, when he noticed that his dogs would begin to salivate whenever he entered the room, even when he was not bringing them food. At first he found this something of a nuisance, but what he had accidentally discovered was the phenomenon of classical conditioning. Pavlov performed and directed experiments on digestion, eventually publishing this work after 12 years of research. He won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1904 for his work. His discovery has gained growing significance in political practices and sociological sciences. He concluded that even such concepts as freedom, curiosity and religion were conditioned reflexes of the brain. ''Essentially, only one thing in life is of real interest to us-- our psychical experience,'' he said in his Nobel address. ''Its mechanism, howeve … [Click Below for Full Description]
