        The Varieties of Religious Experience.

      Longmans Green and Co., New York 1902 - 1 blank leaf + 1 leaf with book ads on verso + TP + [iii] = Dedication page + [v]-vi = Preface + [vii]- xii = Contents + [1]-534 + 1 leaf with printer information on verso, Octavo. First American Edition (McDermott 1902-1). First American Edition of The Varieties of Religious ExperienceThis is James' major work on religion, and also one of his most popular books containing the Gifford Lectures that he delivered in Edinburgh in 1901-1902. Originally designed as the psychological part of a more complete treatise on religion (which was never completed) it is an important study in both the psychology and philosophy of religion and also a critical source for the nature and further development of James's philosophy.James was primarily interested in direct religious experiences, considering theology and the organizational aspects of religion as completely secondary to his investigations. For him, religious experiences were simply human experiences: "Religious happiness is happiness. religious trance is trance." He was only interested in the "experience", not the dogma or institutional structures of religion. While he did believe that religious experiences can have "morbid origins" in brain pathology and can even be irrational, he still believed they were largely positice in their overall effects. Using James' pragmatic method, the effectiveness of religious experences proves their trueth, whatever their source.This is an important study in both the psychology and the philosophy of religion and soon after its publication, "Varieties" entered the Western canon for both of those diciplines and has remained in print for over a century.According to the definitive edition of James's works published by Harvard University Press: "The first edition of The Varieties of Religious Experience was published in England (from American sheets with a special title page) on June 9, 1902, the day of James's final lecture. James received an advance copy on June 2 in Edinburgh. The date of the American publication is not certain. Under A 31018 on April 15, 1902, the copyright was given to James by the Library of Congress, which accepted the two statutory copies on May 26. However, the earliest notice in the Publisher's Weekly was #1586 for June 21, 1902, the book prices at $3.20" (The Varieties of Religious Experience, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, 1985, pp. 555-6). It must be pointed out, however, that the English edition does not say "First Edition June 1902" on the verso of the TP as does this first American issue. With "Nietsche" misspelled at line 11 on page 38 - indicated the very first issue of the book. This copy also includes the often missing inserted slip between pages 126 and 127 noting: "Remarks on pages 123-126. - These two cases printed here are selected from a larger number, kindly furnished me by friends. W.J." Original dark green covers with a sun lightened spine. The fragile paper label is a bit worn on the edges but 100% readable. there is a contemporary former owner's signature to the front fly leaf ("Martha G. Stokes 1902"). Overall, a very pretty copy of this important and influential work by William James. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Prince Igor, Arr.] Kniaz' Igor' Opera v IV deistviiakh s prologom Slova i muzyka A. P. Borodina Siuzhet zaimstvovan iz Slova o polku Igoreve [Prince Igor: opera in 4 acts with prologue. Words and music by A. P. Borodin. Subject matter taked from the Lay of the Host of Igor]. [Piano reduction without vocal parts but with Russian text overlay]

      [Leipzig... Sankt-Peterburg]: [M. P. Belaieff] [PNs 119, 120, 143, 182, 183], 1902. First Edition, later issue. Davis pp. 82 (illustration) and 86-87. Tentative date based on publisher's catalogue. First issue probably 1888 (printed date to upper wrapper). See upper wrapper of otherwise identical copy at IMSLP. The second plate number to p. 1, also in the copy at IMSLP, is a remnant from the piano-vocal score, which uses the identical plate (no singing on this page). The plates of the overture were also used for the piano-vocal score. In all varieties of Belaieff's original edition of Prince Igor (full score, piano-vocal score, the present arrangement, etc.), the wrapper assumes the function of a title, presenting the facts of publication (imprint, date, price list), while the title proper, unusually lavish in its style, is reduced to a merely decorative function and lacks basic content (including the imprint). Belaieff's original edition, including the present arrangement, represents the traditional version of Borodin's unfinished work, completed by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov and first performed at the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg in 1890.. Folio. Quarter textured black cloth with matching black boards, titling gilt to spine and former owner's name "Ebstrup" gilt to foot of upper board. 1f. (blank), 1f. (decorative chromolithographic title by A. Antipov), 1f. (calligraphic dedication to the memory of Glinka, in Cyrillic), 1f. (engraved portrait of Borodin with a 4-measure autograph musical quotation in facsimile from the prologue of the opera), [i] (preface explaining the posthumous completion of the opera in Russian, French, and German, with PN 119.120), [i] (blank), i-xvi (overture), 1-213, [i] (publisher's catalogue) pp. Printer's note to lower right corner of p. I: "Stich und Druck der Röder'schen Officin in Leipzig." Caption titles and scene descriptions in Russian (Cyrillic), French, and German. Stage directions and text underlay in Russian only. The preface credits the piano reduction to Felix Mikhaylovich Blumenfel'd (1863-1931). Watermark CGR*5. The basic plate number, found on all non-blank pages beginning with the preface, is 120. Several pages have other plate numbers added: the preface has the double plate number 119. 120; the overture has the triple plate number 120.119_143; no. 8, Pliaska polovetskikh devushek (Dance of the Polovtsian Maidens), and no. 17, Polovetskaia pliaska s khorom (Polovtsian Dance with Chorus), have the double plate number 120.382; no. 18, Polovetskii marsh (Polovtsian March) has triple plate number 119.120.383; the first page of no. 1, Prologue (p. 1), has a second, not easily legible, plate number (153). All plate numbers other than 119 and 120 appear in a smaller font. Publisher's catalogue "Compositions pour Piano publiés par M. P. Belaïeff à Leipzig," numbered "17," lists the works of Glazunov ("Glazounow") through the two piano sonatas, opp. 74 and 75 (1901); the most recent work is probably Vasily Kalafati's 5 Préludes, op. 7 (published 1902). Handstamp "Skandinavisk Musikforlag Kjøbenhavn" to foot of title. Cross in pencil to lower right corner of pp. 18 and 50; further pencil mark to lower right corner of p. 153. Boards worn; spine heavily chipped at head and tail; wrappers lacking. Uniformly browned; title foxed.

        SEVEN POEMS & TWO TRANSLATIONS

      Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1902. ONE OF 325 COPIES on paper (and 25 on vellum). This is one of the 26 intriguing (and obviously uncommon) examples Tidcombe has identified as imitation Doves bindings, a group of handsomely executed volumes that continue to be mysterious. It differs from its fellows by offering significantly more in the way of gilt decoration. The work here is the fourth publication of the Doves Press, a volume that gathers together a number of poems by Tennyson, written at various times in his long life and all reflecting his abiding interest in Homer and Greek myth. The collection is framed by two short translations of passages from Homer's "Iliad," both featuring images of fire. Two original poems concern the tragic figure of Oenone, the first love of Paris, and two are inspired by the "Odyssey." The other three treat, in turn, the figure of the Theban seer Tiresias; Tithonus, lover of the goddess of Dawn; and the myth of the theft of Persephone by Death.. 233 x 165 mm. (9 1/4 x 6 1/2"). 55, [1] pp. ONE OF 325 COPIES on paper (and 25 on vellum). EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE DARK BLUE CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, IN THE STYLE OF THE DOVES BINDERY (stamp-signed and dated 1909 on rear turn-in), covers with gilt frame formed by interlocking double rules, side- and cornerpieces with oakleaf clusters accented by open circles and solid dots, large double gilt-rule lozenge in central panel, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with open circle at center, an oakleaf cluster extending above and below it, dots in corners, gilt vertical titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins with oakleaf clusters at corners, all edges gilt and gauffered with two rows of dots. In a blue cloth slipcase.Tomkinson, p. 45; Tidcombe DP-4. For the binding: Tidcombe, p. 463 The usual faint offsetting from the facing turn-ins on the front and rear free endpaper, half a dozen leaves with minor foxing just to the lower fore-edge corner, otherwise VERY FINE, the text clean, fresh, and smooth, and the lovely binding especially lustrous and virtually unworn.This is one of the 26 intriguing (and obviously uncommon) examples Tidcombe has identified as imitation Doves bindings, a group of handsomely executed volumes that continue to be mysterious.

His Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque appeared later in 1839 (dated 1840).

No copies with color illustrations are known on the market nor have we found any copies at auction or in library holdings. (Gullans & Espey 71). Margaret Neilson Armstrong (1867-1944) was a 20th-century American designer, illustrator, and author. She is best known for her book covers in the Art Nouveau style and favored plant-related motifs, bold colors, gold stamping, and often slightly asymmetrical designs--an unusual combination that helped to distinguish her among her peers. She designed more than 270 book covers and book bindings. Armstrong has been called "the most productive and accomplished American book designer of the 1890s and early 1900s"
