Item Description: Circa 1863., 1863. The 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, 1890. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. SCARE FIRST EDITION of Dickinson's first book, one of only 500 copies printed. An outstanding copy with a noted provenance. Only ten of Dickinson's poems were published in her lifetime, appearing in newspapers and journals. The first and scarcest volume of her work, titled simply Poems, was issued in 1890 in a run of just 500 copies. Even as late as 1890 Dickinson was still an unknown poet and publishing her challenging poetry was a considerable gamble for Roberts Brothers of Boston, hence the very limited run of just 500 copies. Provenance: From the library of Josephine Porter Boardman Crane with her bookplate ("Ex-libris / Josephine B. Crane / Sugar Hill / Dalton, Mass.") on the front pastedown. Crane, an important American socialite and patron of the arts was a co-founder of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the benefactress of the Dalton School (named after her family estate in Dalton, MA). Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1890. Octavo, original decorated cloth; custom box. A few spots of soiling to cloth and a slight hint of toning to spine. Extremely scarce in such fine condition.

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

An important volume in the "No Name" series, which featured American poetry and prose written by prominent authors whose identities were kept secret. The present volume, published in a tiny edition of 2,000 copies, features contributions by two authors whose works are strongly associated with the feminist movement: "Husband and Wife," by Christina Rossetti (pp.42-44), and most notably, "Success" by Emily Dickinson. While Dickinson was a prolific private poet, "Success" is credited with being the only poem published during her lifetime. Despite the flaws, an attractive copy of an important debut. BAL 118.

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.
