        A Service / in Memory of / Alice Freeman Palmer + The Life of Alice Freeman Palmer + A Marriage Cycle + The Autobiography of a Philosopher

      1903, 1908, 1915, 1930 - A collectors set of FOUR BOOKS with inscriptions and laid in card. This is a collection of four books that sets forth in documents and the books themselves the life and the love shared by George Herbert Palmer and Alice Freeman Palmer. Often it recalls the great stories of the love between intellectuals from Aphasia and Pericles, through Abelard and Eloise, and beyond to Sartre and DeBeauvior, but all of this in a uniquely American nineteenth century style. These works and documents reflect the times and the great academics of Europe and America who came together in the so-called "Classical Age" of American philosophy. The collection begins with the death of Alice Freeman Palmer in 1902 and eventually we are taken forward to May 1945 when memories of the Palmers are slipping into the culture's unconsciousness. The remarkable book containing AFP's funeral service with the presentation card of GHP and the inlaid letter from a recently bereaved George Trumbull Ladd begins the telling of the story. Next is GHP's 1908 published biography of his wife which went through many editions and very many issues. The presentation copy here is very rare and contains an inscription to their favorite niece. The third text A Marriage Cycle published six years later contains the poems AFP asked GHP to burn literally during the last moments of her life. The Preface to the book contains his struggle with publishing them. Lastly GHP's 1930 Autobiography is inlaid with a series of letters to their friend Apatha Laughlin dated from before Alice's death to fifteen years after George's death. The editions, the inscriptions and the laid in materials make this a historically unique set of first editions.

        Collection of seven manuscript poems.

      (Cambridge) 1930 - Small octavo. 6ff. Group of seven manuscript love poems written by Sarton and presented as a Christmas gift to her teacher, Anne Longfellow Thorp. Four of these poems were published in the December, 1930 issue of Poetry magazine -- Sarton's first appearance in print. The four poems, which were grouped under the title "Words on the Wind," bear some subtle textual differences from this manuscript: in "First Love," a "moon-blind" found in the manuscript is changed to "snow-blind"; a repeating motif in "Let No Wind Come" is changed so that "Only a moth's wing beating at the core" becomes "Only a moth's heart beating at the core." Perhaps the most interesting revision occurs toward the end of "They Also." The line about a pair of flying geese parting in air "Back to his separate skin, his human feather" is changed in the published version to read "Back to his separate skin, his meager feather," thus pushing the metaphor a little further and leaving the reader to intuit the connection. Evidence that Sarton was working on this small gift book in late November is borne out by a letter to her parents on the 30th, in which she requests "bright blue Japanese paper for mounting. about twelve sheets of that beautiful Italian paper for my poetry books." She then outlines the design for the book: "I'm using the bird as endpaper and the peacock as frontispiece. The cover will be very plain with no design." In the end, though, she would use the linocut of the peacock -- printed in blue and orange -- on the front cover. The granddaughter of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Thorp taught at Shady Hill School, and she and Sarton became lifelong friends. Sarton's 1985 novel The Magnificent Spinster was based on Thorp's life. Fragile blue paper wrappers show chipping and are split along the spine fold; internally very fine. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

It follows in every case the first edtions The decorations have been designed and engraved on wood by Hilda Quick, those in The Shepheardes Calender being based on the cuts in the original editions. The initial letters and the letterings for the title-page and headings have been engraved by her from designs by Joscelyne Gaskin" (Volume I, preliminary p. [8])."The text has been newly prepared from the original editions by Professor W.L. Renwick The headings and initial letters, drawn by Joscelyne Gaskin and engraved on wood by Hilda Quick, will be printed in colour. The decorations, in part based on the woodcuts in the early editions but for the most part original, designed and engraved on wood by Hilda Quick, will be coloured by hand" (Publisher’s Prospectus)."The eight volumes of Spenser, 1930, are equally good—different, as the character of the author, is, but in merita nothing to choose between them. Perhaps the small devices below Spenser’s sonnets, printed in black and in the vellum copies beautifully laid with gold, are the most discreet and opulent form of decoration, fitting and in flawless taste" (Franklin, p. 150).Franklin, pp. 150, 236.
