The Stewarts were among the first European families to settle in the Peterborough- Lakefield region in the first half of the nineteenth century and to make a go of it; their neighbours included the Traills, Moodies, and Stricklands. "The book is full of the day-to-day life of the family, the way in which the children of the first generation suffered as they were drawn into the laborious life of the farm, the easing of strain with the coming of additional settlement (the founding of Peterborough in 1825), and the later scattering of the children to new and more settled homes." - Story, Oxford Companion to Canadian History and Literature. Dunlop, Eleanor (nee Stewart), 1819-1907, was the second daughter of Thomas and Frances Stewart. In 1845, "Ellen," as her close friend Catharine Parr Traill called her, married Charles Dunlop (1817-1906), a successful Otonabee farmer. Ellen, with Catharine's assistance, edited Frances Stewart's letters for Our Forest Home (Toronto, 1902). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Satyricon of Petronius A New Translation with Introduction and Notes

      Paris: Charles Carrington,, 1902. Octavo. Publisher's half vellum, brown morocco spine labels gilt, fleuron gilt to spine, marbled sides and endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Contemporary ex-libris to front pastedown, partially removed. Covers lightly rubbed and dust soiled, internally sound and fresh, an excellent copy. First edition, in the publisher's deluxe half vellum, of this translation (falsely attributed by the publisher to "Sebastian Melmoth", a.k.a. Oscar Wilde) of the Satyricon of Petronius, one of the few surviving novels of Classical Rome, from a limited edition of 515 copies, this one of 440 on French hand made paper. Gaius Petronius (c.27-66 AD), Emperor Nero's official arbiter elegantiarum, who was accused of treason by jealous fellow-courtiers and forced to commit suicide, was indeed a lifelong fascination for Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), himself the arbiter elegantiarum of his own age, who had been denounced and destroyed by the prudish hypocrisy of his contemporaries. Wilde indeed boasted of having read the Satyricon in the original Latin, and, moreover, in his Picture of Dorian Gray, explicitly identifies his central character as having "found, indeed, a subtle pleasure in the thought that he may really become to the London of his own day what to imperial Neronian Rome the author of the Satyricon once had been". The connections between Wilde and the Satyricon were sufficiently close and sufficiently well known to make this attribution by the publisher Carrington (who knew and worked with both Wilde and Robert Ross) of a posthumously published translation by Wilde seem highly plausible and appealing. However, it is now understood (see Rod Boroughs, English Literature in Translation, 1880-1920, vol. 38 issue 1, p8, 1995) that Carrington's attribution to "Sebastian Melmoth" (Wilde's Parisian pseudonym, a name revealingly confected from martyred homosexual heart-throb Saint Sebastian and the eponymous Faustian character in his great-uncle Charles Maturin's gothic novel Melmoth the Wanderer, 1820) was a clever hoax. Nevertheless the production is an appealing part of the Wildean mythos, and a beautiful book at that. Carrington, in his foreword, writes moroever of the hypocrisy of public morals in terms Wilde himself would have appreciated all too keenly: "Those persons likely to experience the greatest delight in conning over this book privately will be the first to decry it most vehemently in public." He notes that this translation is the first "literal and unexpurgated version", and warns that "the attitude of contemporaries towards Petronius and the study of the "Satyricon" [is] a sort of moral Barometer, whereby to gauge the degree of emancipation attained by successive Centuries from the thraldom of conventional prudery." A superb copy in an attractive contemporary binding of this scarce and appealing text, no copy of which is recorded at auction since 1989.

        Stuart's Atlas of the State of Maine Including Statistics and Descriptions of its History, Educational system, Geology, Railroads, Natural Resources, Summer Resorts and Manufacturing Interests.

      J.H. Stuart & Co. South Paris, Maine. 1902-03. - Folio volume 18.5 x 15 inches; 108 pages with handcolored maps on pages 20, 27-96 (single and double page tipped-in), and two additional unnumbered double-page color maps. The large folding map of the state (pp. 1-4) is MISSING. Joints are broken but still attached by cloth, spine has been clumsily repaired with heavy paper which has disintegrated over time. There is a 2.5 inch abraded area along the cover's top edge; corners are bumped. An approximately 1.5 by 2.25 inch irregularly shaped stain to the front cover has penetrated the first 22 pp of the volume (the text section), gradually becoming smaller as it soaked through the pages until it is no longer visible. It appears as a small light spot (.5 inch circle) on only one map (Rail Road Map of Maine with Watershed Map of Maine on verso). There is a very light line of dampstaining to the lower right edge of the first pages, not affecting any text or map. Several areas of the Rail Road Map are marked by red pencil check marks. There are two tiny (.5 x .25 inch) spots in the margin of the map of Oxford county (#71). Overall the maps are in very good condition, clean and bright, with hand coloring. Two attractive double page Gray maps are at the rear of the volume (New Map of the United States and New Map of the World in Hemispheres) followed by a Directory of significant "Business Firms and Professional Men" to be found in Maine. Overall, a desirable item at an attractive price with contents chiefly in very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Hound of The Baskervilles. Another Adventure of Sherlock Holmes.

      London: George Newnes, 1902.. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.359. With 16 illustrated plates by Paget. Bound in publisher's decorative red cloth, showing silhouette of the hound against a skyline in black and gilt to front board, gilt titles to spine. In a leather-spined clamshell case. Internally clean and free from marks and spotting, no inscriptions or bookplates. Cloth a little sunned in places with some minor rubs and fraying to extremities. Shows extremely well, in a handsome box. Arguably Holmes' most charismatic case, and one which has consequently been adapted for stage and screen numerous times - and only about half of those times as a parody.
