        [Manuscript Book]: Suitable Reflections on a Pilgrim's Progress from Bachelordom to What's-to-come. A Serio-Ludicro Tragico-Comico Poem... Being a Faithful Account of Excruciating Sorrow and wherein is particularly shown how the spacious corridors, ante-rooms, back porch and pantry of Bachelor's Hall became damp, moist & unpleasant, from the many divers tears that leaked from umbrella racks and cus-pitoons upon Charles Mac Rae's Resignation. [Alternate title]: An Epithalamium for Bachelors: For Twenty Years a Household Remedy. [Cover title]: Needles and Pins, [Needles and Pins], Open the covers, And Trouble Begins

      [No place: The Sign of the Stein. 1902]. First. String-tied wrappers in hand-painted canvas dustwrapper. 32mo. (5" x 4.75"). (16)pp. Light edgewear and rubbing, near fine in near fine dustwrapper with a modest stain on the rear panel. Artist's engraved business card laid in with a manuscript presentation. A wonderful and wonderfully funny hand-lettered and hand-illustrated book by Walter Jack Duncan, celebrating Charles Mac Rae's courtship of his fiancee, his dwindling days of bachelorhood, his impending marriage, and the horrifying spectre of babies, with just the right touch of sophomoric humor one would expect from a talented 21 year old in 1902. Every page is embellished or illustrated in a most pleasing manner reminiscent of W.W. Denslow. Walter Jack Duncan was a noted illustrator born in Indianapolis in 1881. He studied at the Art Students League in New York City with John H. Twachtman, and illustrated for the popular magazines of the period: The Century Magazine, Scribner's, McClure's, and Harper's Monthly Magazine. He also served as an official artist with the A.E.F. during World War I and illustrated many books, including several by Christopher Morley. A lovely production, suitable for reprinting. .

        A Dream of Freedom, romance of South America.

      - London, F.V. White 1902. Octavo publisher's illustrated cloth blocked in ochre, white and black; xii,318pp, frontispiece. Some minor browning and signs of use but rather a good copy. Tipped in the front opening is an original photo of Nisbet dated 1901 and a notice of this book. Only edition and rare. And rare in more than one sense. It is the only novel that I know of set in the William Lane led utopia of New Australia and Cosme in Paraguay; in fact it is one of very few contemporary books on the settlement (the only other that I know of is the vitriolic 'Where Socialism Failed'; 1912). Likewise it is one of very few novels set in an actual utopia - or at least an attempt at one. Nisbet's preface is a mildly petulant jab at his critics and sounds a weary note about having written more than forty novels without repeating himself. As his first novel (set in New Guinea) appeared only 14 years earlier it's a not unimpressive achievement on some level. The author of the newspaper notice inserted at the front was alarmed at the implied threat that this could be his last novel and must have been relieved as more novels appeared later the same year. But there weren't many more novels - and they petered out in 1905. In the same month (January 1902) that the freshly widowed Nisbet dates his preface he married a 73 year old widow (20 years his senior); I wonder whether he was writing with the exhaustion of a new burden undertaken or the release from financial strain.

Such poems as ‘I Sing the Body Electric’ and ‘Song of Myself’ asserted the beauty of the human body, physical health, and sexuality in 1856 the second edition of Leaves of Grass appeared. This collection contained revisions of the poems of the first edition and several new ones All his later volumes of new poems were to be incorporated into successive editions When his brother was wounded at Fredericksburg, Whitman went there in 1862 to care for him. For the rest of the Civil War he spent much time caring for both Union and Confederate soldiers. In May 1865 Drum-Taps showed Whitman’s readers a new kind of poetry, ranging from his early oratorical excitement to his later awareness of the horrors of the war. The Sequel to Drum-Taps, published in the autumn of 1865, contained his great elegy on Lincoln, ‘When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d’" (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature).Myerson B4.

First edition. This is Pareto's second major work and an analysis of various types of socialism. The purpose of this book was to set out considered criticism of liberal beliefs, and therefore of any doctrine based solely on reason. Pareto maintained that socialism took advantage of the desire which every man has of transcending his own state, of imagining new roles for himself and his family, of building castles in the air and rationalizing them, of living in a better world. In this way socialism elaborated on powerful myths and political formulae which could be used to spur the masses into action and, through this action, bring about real changes in every sector of individual and collective life.(New Palgrave III, p. 802).

        (Novel): Diane, Priestess of Haiti, in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine, LXIX, April 1902

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott. 1902. First. First, and apparently only edition. Front wrap detached, and chipped at the bottom corner, as are the edges of the first two pages (both of ads), last page of the novel has a short tear and small chip, as do a few of the following pages, else a sound and readable, good or better copy. This issue contains the only appearance of this complete novel by an African-American author. The novel features a separate title page, prints the author's name and title on the spine, and takes up a significant portion of the magazine (80 of the issue's 128 pages, with the remainder mostly comprising advertisements). Durham (1861-1919), born in Pennsylvania, was the assistant editor of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin. In 1891 he was named U.S. Charge d'Affaires to Santo Domingo and U.S. Minister to Haiti, an office that he served until 1893. This novel was not published elsewhere to our knowledge. Individual issues of this magazine are rare -- we have never seen another example of this issue offered for sale. .
