Item Description: Boston: Houghton, Mifflin, 1894, 1894. First Edition, publisher's original white cloth; minor smudging and foxing to the cloth; an excellent copy. The book was issued in both white and green cloths, and later, nearly identical editions were also bound in these colors. The white is, however, unquestionably scarcer, especially in such good condition. According to the Bibliography Of American Literature, this is "one of the most elaborate pieces of bookmaking of the period." Slightly over one thousand copies were printed.

Item Description: Osgood, McIlvane, London, 1894. Hardcover. First English edition. [i-ii], [i-x], (1) - 126 Octavo. gilt-decorated white cloth, top edges gilt. Illustrated with pictures and illuminations in colour by Childe Hassam. Title page in green pink and yellow. One of fifty-five copies. A notable rarity. Celia Thaxter's lyrical classic of her delightful garden on Appledore, one of the Isles of Shoals off the coast of New England. From the decorative vellum-like binding to the moirŽ style endpapers to the generous typography to the illustrations and the inserted full page chromolithographic plates protected by printed tissue guards, this is probably as charming a production as any book in the collection. "One of the most elaborate pieces of bookmaking of the period" (BAL). This copy, printed by the Riverside Press, is one of those fifty-five copies that were bound with English imprint on May 4, 1894. The binding was designed by Sarah Wyman Whitman and is one of the most elaborate pieces of bookmaking of the period. The cost of the expensively made book probably contributed to the first edition's small print run of barely 1,000 copies. Basically a poet, Thaxter died shortly after the publication of this, her only book on gardening.With: a copy of 1988 facsimile edition by Houghton Mifflin, boxed as issued. [BAL 19923. DAB. NAW]. Spine and foredges slightly browned, very minor foxing of rear spine channel, otherwise fine. Bookseller Inventory # 25786

Item Description: One page; titled "MY MAIDEN"; 24 lines; signed in ink by the author, "Celia Thaxter." Folded twice; tender and splitting at the folds, but overall very good. Undated, but likely from 1886 or 1887. Thaxter was an early user of the typewriter, even endorsing a machine in contemporary advertising. This poem, retitled "Because of Thee," was revised and published in 1896 by her friend Sarah Orne Jewett. One of the most popular American women poets of the 19th century, Thaxter is still especially revered in coastal New Hampshire and Maine. Bookseller Inventory # 25700

In the scarce dust-jacket, a few chips, minor tape repairs to verso of front flap; Celia Laighton Thaxter, 1835 - 1894, was a New England author and "lady poet" for the Atlantic Monthly magazine during the Civil War. "This volume, made up of extracts from the letters of Celia Thaxter, will serve, we trust, to give an idea, even to those who never knew her, of her nature and development. Except for a light from within, which irradiated the world she lived in, her life could easily have worn the sad-colored hues of ordinary mortality. But the radiance of her nature was like an ever-rising sun of affection, constantly warming the hearts whereon it shone; and where was the pilgrim who did not gladly open his window to that East?".

Item Description: Houghton, Mifflin and Company and printed by the Riverside Press, Cambridge, Boston and New York, 1886. A charming little volume in the original wrappers and paper dust jacket, measuring 4.25" x 6.75". Bound in plain white wrappers with the stiff paper dust jacket printed in red with floral designs on the front panel. Name and date ("A.B. Foot/ Sept./93") in ink on the second endpaper. Very clean and tight, and printed on high quality white laid paper; 121 pages. Light soiling to the rear wrappers and small tears and chips at the bottom and top of the spine ends. Overall, a very good copy of this scarce item. Celia Laighton Thaxter (1835–1894) was an American writer of poetry and stories. She was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.Thaxter grew up in the Isles of Shoals, first on White Island, where her father, Thomas Laighton, was a lighthouse keeper, and then on Smuttynose and Appledore Islands.When she was sixteen, she married Levi Thaxter and moved to the mainland, residing first in Watertown, Massachusetts at a property his father owned. In 1854, they accepted an offer to use a house in Newburyport. The couple then acquired their own home, today called the Celia Thaxter House, built in 1856 near the Charles River at Newtonville. She had a son, Roland, born August 28, 1858, who would later become a prominent plant pathologist. Her first published poem, Landlocked, was written during this time on the mainland. Her life with Levi was not harmonious and she missed her islands, and so after 10 years away, she moved back to Appledore Island.Celia became the hostess of her father's hotel, the Appledore House, and welcomed many New England literary and artistic notables to the island and to her parlor, including writers Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Whittier, Sarah Orne Jewett, and the artists William Morris Hunt and Childe Hassam, who painted several pictures of her. She was present at the time of the infamous murders on Smuttynose Island, about which she wrote the essay, "A Memorable Murder." In 2008, The Library of America selected "A Memorable Murder" for inclusion in its two-century retrospective of American True Crime. First Edition with matching dates of 1886 on the title and copyright pages. Bookseller Inventory # 233

Item Description: D. Lothrop; Boston; 1886; Folio (15" x 12"); 149 numbered pages, 1886. VG-/None. First edition, 1st printing, Deluxe large paper edition. Navy blue cloth boards with beveled edges, title stamped in gilt on spine. TEG, other edges uncut. This copy has a large (13" x 10") ornate design stamped on the front cover that has gilt and silver flowers in a silver cobweb centered in the upper LH corner, the title and the author's name also stamped in gilt, all this framed within 2 gilt rules. Copyright 1886, no other dates. The only bibliographical reference found about this book is Helen Card's catalog #4 (which offered a massive near complete Howard Pyle collection). She noted 2 editions of this book were published in 1886, one a folio size 'illustrated by Greenaway, Pyle, Joseph Pennell . . . The plates printed by hand in color on india paper and bound in vellum cloth. Unrecorded by either Morse-Brinckle [standard Pyle bibliography] or Theodore Bolton," the other an Octavo edition with illustrations printed from wood engravings. She also notes the 1891 Thaxter 4to book 'Verses" is a reprint of the 1886 'Idyls and Pastorals' edition. The Helen Card catalog did offer a copy of the 1891 'Verses' edition, but the 1886 printings were scarce enough it had no copies. Lacking other bibliographical references or other copies to compare, one must regard the deluxe folio size first edition of this book as very scarce - while not in vellum, this is clearly the deluxe folio edition noted by her. The most attractive feature of this particular copy is probably the front cover with its elegant design apparently repeated on the octavo and 4to editions but in nowhere near as large a size - the front cover of this copy can be graded near fine. But alas there is a downside to this remarkable find - the paper is very prone to foxing, and the book was also at one time was in contact with moisture. The result is that except for the TEG, the paper edges are foxed brown, many pages have substantial foxing, and all plates have foxing around the edges (although the images themselves are in general not foxed). There is a faint water stain to the lower RH of most pages (but not in the same place!), and there was a water in contact with half the back cover (that damage now has been conserved and touched up and thus no longer detracts from the book's external appearance). The binding of this copy was weak (no doubt all copies have this problem since the book is so heavy), but it has now been strengthened by a professional restorer who replaced it with one of matching colors while retaining and laying on the original cloth so expertly it is not noticeable. New endpapers were also added, but otherwise everything else is original and it is now an attractive looking book. The interior illustrations include 1 by Howard Pyle, 2 by Thaxter friend Childe Hassam, an unusual painting by Kate Greenaway of a young girl all bundled up for Thaxter's 'Little Brown Maiden' poem, a Civil War related image (by T. W. Wood) of 2 young black girls for Thaxter's 'Connoisseurs', a Joseph Pennell pen & ink for 'A Venetian Boat Scene', and many other period prints. One of the lesser plates is lacking (#19 (by Mrs. L. B. Humphrey), but whether it was omitted, never published or removed is not clear without comparison to another copy. No doubt an interesting item for the completist collector of Thaxter, Pyle, Hassam. Greenaway, art nouveau or perhaps some other interest.
