Item Description: This manuscript was sent by Emily Dickinson to her sister-in-law Susan Gilbert, and inherited by Susan's daughter Martha Bianchi. The poem was first published, from this manuscript, as number XIII in "The Single Hound" (1914), Bianchi's edition of the manuscripts and letters that Dickinson had sent to Gilbert. Later editions of the poem were all published from the manuscript in Dickinson's Fasicle 28 (at Harvard's Houghton Library) until Franklin's Variorum Edition (1998) where our manuscript is recorded as 540A. The manuscript, in ink, is written in 8 lines, on a single 12mo sheet of wove paper, (6-1/8 x 3-7/8 inches) folded twice vertically. It is pasted on the front free endpaper in a presentation copy of the first edition of "The Single Hound". Beneath the manuscript the page is inscribed by the editor "For Mr and Mrs Frank Mills from their country neighbor Martha G. Dickinson Bianchi." On the front pastedown endpaper (opposite the manuscript) is written in a different hand "A wedding present Sept. 15 - 1904". Martha Bianchi's diaries (at Brown University), particularly the 1914 volume, have many references to the Millses, whose marriage did occur in 1904 in Amherst. Enclosed in a half red morocco slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 28389

Item Description: Roberts Brothers, Boston, 1894. First edition. First edition. Engraved frontispieces (portrait in vol. I; Dickinson home in vol. II), 3 facsimile letters; [iv], xii, 228; [viii], 229-454 pp. 2 vols. Small 8vo. Presentation Copy from Mabel Loomis Todd. Volume I INSCRIBED to Mabel Loomis Todd's confidant and perhaps the first independent reader of the proofs of the LETTERS, Albert Josiah Lyman: "To Dr. Lyman / from /Mabel Loomis Todd / Amherst, / 17 Decr 1894."Todd met Lyman, minister of the South Congregational Church of Brooklyn, in February of 1894 while on a lecture tour. In a letter, dated 13 February 1894, to her ailing lover Austin Dickinson, Todd mentions with delight that "I have had an independent literary judgement on the proof of the LETTERS this morning which fills me with joy." The favorable judgement was pronounced by Lyman, who Longsworth describes as "Handsome, sympathetic, liberal in his views, and a clergyman of great pastoral power ." (AUSTIN AND MABEL, p. 380n). After Austin Dickinson's death, "Dr. Lyman was the one [Todd] confided in and from whom she received remarkable and unorthodox consolation" (ibid). In January, 1894, Todd sent proofs of the LETTERS to every correspondent who allowed letters from Dickinson to be published (Meyerson, p. 34), and it is likely that Lyman was the first independent critic of the work. No one played a more crucial part in the early acceptance of Dickinson as a major American poet than Mabel Loomis Todd. She was the first posthumous steward of Dickinson's work, seeing the poems and letters into print for the first time. Meyerson notes only three copies of the LETTERS inscribed by Todd, all dated December, 1894. No significant inscribed copies of the LETTERS have appeared at auction in the last 30 years. BAL 4660; Myerson A3.1.a (notes only three copies inscribed by Todd). Provenance: A.J. Lyman (his ownership inscription to flyleaf, "A.J. Lyman / Brooklyn New York," and presentation inscription from editor on half-title) Original green buckram, covers and spines stamped in gilt with Indian pipes motif (BAL's variant 1). Spine of volume I darkened with some loss of gilt, light shelfwear. Very good. Volume II supplied from another set, near fine. In custom morocco-backed slipcase and chemise Engraved frontispieces (portrait in vol. I; Dickinson home in vol. II), 3 facsimile letters; [iv], xii, 228; [viii], 229-454 pp. 2 vols. Small 8vo.

Item Description: Roberts Brothers, Boston, 1890. First Edition. First Printing. In the publisher's original three-piece binding with a wavy vertical rule separating a gray cloth spine from white cloth-covered boards. Myerson's 'B' binding [no priority], with the wavy rule and the first three lines on the front cover stamped in gilt rather than silver. The spine is dull with some rubbing at the head and the foot, but with virtually no loss to the cloth. There's some soiling to the covers, and a light damp stain to the upper corner of the front board and the fore edge of the rear board, with some resultant, albeit fairly light, internal staining. The upper two inches of the front hinge is starting, and there is a tasteful previous owner bookplate on the front pastedown. A good copy, without repair or restoration, of an important volume. While First Editions of the Second and Third Series of poems turn up quite regularly, First Printings of the seminal First Series appear on the market ever more infrequently. One of 500 copies. Myerson A 1.1.a. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 000098

Item Description: Roberts Brothers, Boston, 1896. Gilt Decorated Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1896. Apparent second edition; Edited by Mabel Loomis Todd. Copyright page bears the designation "second edition", though this copy is otherwise identical to the first edition. This is the only such I've seen. 12mo, 200 pp., gilt decorated olive green cloth, beveled edges. Moderate wear to spine ends, corners a bit worn, darkening throughout spine, general light wear. Very Good, tightly bound and with bright cover gilt. Please see scan. Very scarce example of an exemplary collection of poems by Emily Dickinson, who, though she wrote somewhere between 1,200 and 1,800 poems in her life, disliked publicity so much that no more than ten of her poems were published during her life, and only three or four of those with her advance knowledge. The first collection of her poems to see print, Poems, was published in 1890, four years after her death in 1886. That was followed by Poems - Second Series [1890/91]and then in 1896 by this collection, Poems - Third series. Her fame grew later, and her name was not well-known until some forty years after her death. Nice, fine condition plate-block of four 8-cent Emily Dickinson stamps loose-laid within. L-31n.

Item Description: Roberts Brothers, Boston, 1896. First edition of Emily Dickinson's third book. 12mo, original gilt-stamped ivory boards, green cloth spine, all edges gilt. The present copy is binding A (no priority established in Second and Third Series). Myerson A1.1a, A2.1a, A4.1. BAL 4655, 4656, 4661. Grolier American 100, 91. Edited by Mabel Loomis Todd. Some light wear to the extremities. A very nice copy. A poet who took definition as her province, Emily Dickinson challenged the existing definitions of poetry and the poet's work. Like writers such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Walt Whitman, she experimented with expression in order to free it from conventional restraints. After discovering hundreds of Emily's poems shortly after her death, the poet's sister Lavinia resolved that the poetry must be published. She later wrote: "I have had a 'Joan of Arc' feeling about Emilies [sic] poems from the first" (Letter to Thomas Wentworth Higginson, December 23, 1890, as quoted in Bingham, p. 87). Lavinia approached two of the poet's friends--sister-in-law Susan Dickinson and mentor Thomas Wentworth Higginson --for help. Susan did not pursue publication quickly enough for Lavinia, and Higginson was otherwise occupied. To fulfill her vision, Lavinia turned to Mabel Loomis Todd, the vivacious young wife of an Amherst College professor. Todd was a momentous choice, for she was deeply involved in a love affair with Austin Dickinson, Susan's husband and Emily's brother. An accomplished artist and musician, Todd brought much-needed vitality and commitment to preparing Dickinson's poetry for publication. After finally enlisting Thomas Wentworth Higginson as co-editor, Todd completed Poems of Emily Dickinson in 1890, just four years after the poet's death. Bookseller Inventory # 3130

Overall, a good and presentable copy, signed by Emily Dickinson's niece. BAL 4683. Further Poems of Emily Dickinson is a collection of over 150 of Dickinson's previously unpublished poems. Despite being a prolific 19th century American poet, Emily Dickinson published fewer than a dozen of her poems during her lifetime. After her death, Dickinson's family inherited her poetry and manuscript materials, and the first posthumously published poetry collections were edited by Mabel Loomis Todd, then lover of Emily's brother Austin Dickinson. The poems in this collection were discovered by Martha Dickinson Bianchi, the last member of the Dickinson family, who found them in her Aunt Lavinia's possession. In her introduction, Bianchi remembers the joy of finding the lost poems: "When the little, unexplored package gave up these poems of Emily Dickinson it was for one breathless instant as if the bright apparition of Emily had returned to the old house, with the bees and birds still busy beneath her window, to salute us with her wings." Notably, Bianchi, who wrote with her secretary Alfred Hampson, had a lighter editing hand than her predecessors, choosing only to change punctuation without altering the rhyme scheme or creating titles.

Item Description: New York: Poet's Guild, [ND, but c. 1925]., 1925. First separate edition. Small broadside: 7-3/8 x 4-7/8", printed on off-white stock. A touch of age-toning, but otherwise a crisp, immaculate copy. Near fine. The Poet's Guild in New York City published poems by Robert Frost, Louise Guiney, Vachel Lindsey, Edna St. Vincent Millay and Edwin Arlington Robinson, among others, in "The Unbound Anthology" series, later known as "The Christodora Broadsides". The Dickinson verse, "Before you thought of Spring, / Except as a surmiseÓ survives in three manuscripts and a pencil draft. At the verso of a pencil draft, Dickinson had written "Blue Bird" and the Norcross transcription uses this as the poem's title. Prompted by these two suggestive incidences, later editors adopted "Blue Bird" as the poemÕs formal title. Written in 1879, "Blue Bird" received its first publication in POEMS Second Series in 1891 and became one the the poet's most popular. For more on the publishing history of "Before You Thought of Spring" see Myerson, EMILY DICKINSON A Bibliography, p. 162; and, Franklin, THE POEMS OF EMILY DICKINSON Variorum Edition, Vol. III, pp. 1297-1299.

Item Description: The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press,, Cambridge, MA, 1981. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. No Jacket. First Edition. xxii/1442 pp. (2 volumes paged continuously). Tall 8vo, 1/4 cloth & decorative paper boards, boxed with paper spine label. Light crease to spine of volume 1, else near fine, clean HARDCOVER copies in a very good box. Emily Dickinson, although she did not publish, wrote nearly eighteen hundred poems and organized the largest portion of them with her own form of bookmaking: selected poems copied onto sheets of letter paper that she bound with string. This edition makes the manuscript books of the poet available for the first time, (for all pratical purposes, the first printed edition of Dickinson's complete works without editorial intervention) restored as closely as possible to their original order and, through facsimile reproduction, presented much as she left them. A facsimile edition is of particular importance to Dickinson studies, for the manuscripts of this poet resist translation into the conventions of print. Formal features like her unusual punctuation and capitalization, line and stanza divisions, and display of alternative readings are a source of continuing critical concern.

Item Description: Hodges, Figgis, and Co., Ltd., Dublin, 1905. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. xiv, 243 pages; Signature of the Irish-born artist, Sir William Orpen, dated "Dublin 1906" on the upper right corner of the front free endpaper; clean and tight in Publisher's green cloth binding, corners rounded, short closed tear and wear at spine ends. Toning to two pages from newsclipping laid-in; seven plates, lacks portrait of Parnell's mother. With the ownership signature of William Orpen, Irish war artist and portrait painter. A fascinating memoir by Mrs. Emily Monroe Dickinson (1841-1918) sister of Charles Stewart Parnell, an Irish nationalist political leader, land reform agitator, and the founder and leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party. Parnell was one of the most important political figures in 19th century Great Britain and Ireland. Prime Minister William Gladstone referred to Parnell as the most remarkable person he had ever met; another Prime Minister, H. H. Asquith, described him as one of the three or four greatest men of the 19th century, while the politician-philosopher Lord Haldane described Parnell as the strongest man the House of Commons had seen in 150 years. None of this praise quite conveys the power and influence he came to exercise in Ireland, where he was widely called the "Uncrowned King." His family background was highly unusual -- he was born in County Wicklow, the third son and seventh child of a wealthy Anglo-Irish landowner, John Henry Parnell; his mother, Delia Tudor Stewart of Bordentown, New Jersey, was the daughter of the American naval hero, Admiral Charles Stewart. Young Parnell was the great-grandson of a Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir John Parnell, (who lost office in 1799 when he opposed the Act of Union). He was the grandson of a liberal Irish MP for Wicklow from 1817–1820, William Parnell (1780–1821), who inherited the Avondale Estate in 1795. Charles Stewart Parnell inheirited Avondale as a schoolboy in 1859, when his father died young. And Parnell died just a few months past his own forty-fifth birthday, yet in barely fifteen years in Irish politics, he nearly ended centuries of the power exercised by absentee landlords -- the Anglo-Irish aristocracy into which he had been born. And he was brought down by a personal matter, a messy divorce over Katherine O'Shea, the one-time wife of Captain William O'Shea (winner of a by-election in Galway, thanks to Parnell's influence). Parnell's death is almost universally thought to have been bought on by overwork during his determined campaigns to return to power after the O'Shea divorce trial split the nation in two. Parnell, even decades following his death in 1890, reverberated through literature in Ireland and England -- William Butler Yeats, refers to him many times, particularly in his 1938 poem, "Come Gather Round Me, Parnellites." Parnell's death is difficult to to come to terms with by the character Eleanor in Virginia Woolf's 'The Years.' Readers of the first chapter of James Joyce's 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man' will recall that Parnell (and Michael Davitt) are the subjects of a discussion which sets the stage for all which follows. Parnell also makes appearances in 'Dubliners' and 'Ulysses.' And, if one accepts most critical assessments, Parnell is a significant basis for the central figure of 'FInnegan's Wake' -- HCE. Another of his ten siblings wrote a memoir, as did his widow, Katherine O'Shea Parnell (both in 1914). But this book by one of his sisters, Emily Monroe Dickinson, is earlier and particularly hard to find in a decent copy of the first edition. This copy, while hardly in perfect condition, has the ownership signature of another noted Irishman, the significant war artist and portrait painter, William Orpen [a.k.a. Major Sir William Newenham Montague Orpen, KBE, RA, RHA (1878 – 1931). Orpen, who signed in ink at the top of the front free endpaper in Dublin in 1906, achieved his greatest fame through his extraordinary paintings of the first World War and the subsequent Versailles Peace Conference -- (a.
