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: Anne and David Bromer, Watertown, MA, 1977. Fukuda, Sayaka (illustrator). 35pp. This publisher's copy of the regular edition was bound by Sayaka Fukuda in a quietly beautiful binding that reflects Emily Dickinson's life. The binding is contained within a folding box covered with floral-patterned cloth, referencing the poet's passion for plants and gardening and the influence of nature in her work. The surface of the cloth is covered with a very fine tinted Japanese Tengu paper, toning down brightness and alluding to the theme of death that was ever-present in Dickinson's life and poetry. According to Fukuda, the subtlety of the design reflects the poet's reclusiveness. Still, "Emily Dickinson's literary talent inevitably shines through, which is expressed by quiet but assertive gold tooling and paper onlay." Gold tooling continues, in dotted tendrils, from the box surrounding the book onto the binding, inviting the reader to Dickinson's poems. The binding features layers of pale, rippling Suminigashi, Japanese ink-marbled paper, and shining gold leaf. Fukuda writes that these elements represent Dickinson's "multiplying influence and recognition in the outer world. Despite her withdrawn life, her words traveled.as if a drop in the water caused a ripple to travel endlessly." The binder also notes that she chose to keep the page edges white, in homage to Dickinson's fondness for dressing in white. The color palette Fukuda chose for the binding derives from the final poem in the book, "I'll tell you how the sun rose --", which describes shades of amethyst, purple, yellow, and gray at dawn and dusk. The book itself is handsomely printed on handmade Hayle paper in Bruce Rogers Arrighi and Centaur types. A red initial begins each of the nine poems included. This was the second miniature book to be published by the Bromers. Sayaka Fukuda was born in Tokyo and studied book arts and conservation in London. Named a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders, Fukuda was awarded "Highly Commended" in the organization's 2006 competition. Extremely fine. (2 5/16 by 1 9/16; 59x41mm). Bookseller Inventory # 25444

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

Item Description: Double Dutch Design, Cambridge, MA, 2016. Unique artist's book, all on Arches Text wove paper for text and used teabags, unfolded, washed, and flattened, with smoke decorations and burn holes, all made with incense stick, allowing glimpses of the text and mica on the adjacent Arches sheets, signed by the artist on the colophon. Page size: 3-1/16 square; 74 leaves lettered or decorated. Bound by the artist: hand sewn concertina style binding with used teabags sewn into the concertina folds; wrapped in Japanese tissue and fastened with pearl-headed stick pin through two gold gilt squares, housed in a found hand-made copper box with diminutive piano hinge lid, box painted dark brown with rock as "handle" glued to top, box worn with paint rubbed at extremities revealing copper below. Emily Dickinson's well-known poem. The glittering mica contrasts so wonderfully with the smoke decorated teabags, as does the text of Dickinson's verse. Smoke decoration is traditionally associated with 18th and 19th century American folk-art and appropriately serves here to illuminate words of Emily Dickinson. A beautiful interpretation of a 19th century American masterpiece. Bookseller Inventory # 11144

Item Description: Stillwater, ME, 2011. Artist's book, one of 12 copies, all on archival paper vellum and transparent vellum with original (each different) collages of hand-made pastepaper by the artist, Nancy Ruth Leavitt, and archival Mohawk Superfine paper for the hand-lettered text, each signed and numbered by the artist, Nancy Ruth Leavitt. Page size: 4-3/4 x 7 inches; 16pp. Bound by Joelle Leavitt Webber: accordion folds based on a structure developed by Hedi Kyle and re-interpreted by Joelle Leavitt Webber, each fold holding a double-sided leaf with text on one side and collage on the reverse, all housed in a hand-painted pastepaper (inside and outside) box, hinged with Japanese paper to open as a Japanese-style box, lying completely flat, with button closure. The book can be read by turning each page as in a conventional book or can be removed from the box and displayed as screen of the collages. As with the collages, each box varies in colors, but all are in the blue-purple-green palette. The text is hand-lettered in black Sumi ink in an Italic script by the artist. Both texts - the Emily Dickinson the more well-known - are complementary and both irresistible to any bibliophile.The text of the verse by Emily Dickinson (Verse 1263) reads:There is no Frigate like a BookTo take us Lands awayNor any Coursers like a PageOf prancing Poetry -This Traverse may the poorest takeWithout oppress of Toll -How Frugal is the ChariotThat bears the Human soul.The text of Theodore Parker's "The Book Lover" reads:A great book that comes froma great thinker - it is a ship of thought,deep-freighted with truth,with beauty too. It sails the ocean,driven by the winds of heaven,breaking the level seas of life into beautywhere it goes, leaving behind ita train of sparkling loveliness,widening as the ship goes on.And what a treasure it bringsto every land, scattering the seeds oftruth, justice, love, and piety,to bless the world in ages yet to come!.

Rare broadside printing of the trustees and male and female students in the 1818 class of Amherst Academy. Founded in 1814 by a group of town leaders that included Noah Webster and Samuel Fowler Dickinson, Amherst Academy quickly rose to prominence as an elite private secondary school. In 1818, the year of this broadside, the trustees of the Academy approved a plan to establish a free school for the teaching of "indigent young men of promising talents and hopeful piety, who shall manifest a desire to obtain a liberal education with a sole view to the Christian ministry." Amherst College opened in 1821.Founder and trustee Samuel Fowler Dickinson - whose name, along with Noah Webster and others appears on this broadside - was the grandfather of the poet Emily Dickinson. It was in his Main Street house that Emily spent most of her life, and she attended the Academy from 1840-7. The broadside lists eight Dickinson girls and five Dickinson boys enrolled as students, including Emily's father Edward. One Edwards Dickinson is listed as Assistant Preceptor. Of particular interest to this bookseller is the student James Comins, Jr.Amherst Academy continued to print catalogues of its trustees and students into the 1850s. Small loss at edges, creased from prior folding, backed and mounted on board Printed broadside with type ornament border. Folio (16-1/4 x 13-1/4 in.). Bookseller Inventory # 300085

Item Description: Boston Roberts Brothers 1892, 1892. FIRST EDITION, Fourth Printing (one of 500 copies only) Facsimile of the manuscript copy of "Renunciation" in the author's hand at the beginning of the volume. 8vo, publisher's original light green cloth, the upper cover and spine beautifully decorated and printed in gilt with pictorial designs. [viii], 234 pp. An unusually well preserved and fine copy, bright, clean and very attractive. AN UNCOMMONLY FRESH COPY AND ESPECIALLY SO AS FINE COPIES OF THIS IMPORTANT WORK WERE PUBLISHED IN VERY LIMITED NUMBERS. Despite the contemporary objections to their style, the introspection, imagination, and simple beauty of Dickinson's poems won her a quick, wide, and enduring audience. Were it not for the editorial supervision of Todd and Higginson, Dickinson might not have been published. Though seven of her poems were published in magazines during her lifetime, this posthumous volume represents the first published collection of her work. Bookseller Inventory # 25842

Item Description: Roberts Brothers, Boston, 1878. First Edition. 16mo; the 'No Name' format, issued in publisher's black 'V' cloth, with titling and decorations stamped in red and gilt on spine and panels; printed endpapers; 301pp, [2]. Cloth rubbed at corner tips, exposing the boards, with shallow loss at crown and base of spine; rubbing to cloth along rear joint, with discreet exposure of threading; binding sound and firm, clean throughout, with the decorative elements nicely preserved - a solid Very Good copy. 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: Leopard Studio Editions, (Rochester, NY), 2014. Leopard, Sue Huggins (illustrator). (24)pp., accordionfold, with two four-page inserts sewn in. One of five copies, signed and numbered by the artist. A miniature artist's book by Sue Huggins Leopard based on the poem by Emily Dickinson, which reads: "Love is anterior to life, / Posterior to death, / Initial of creation, / and / The exponent of breath." Following the text are multi-colored silhouettes of faces, extending across multiple panels of the panorama. The color is created with pochoir, and the silhouettes are formed from the negative space in the color. The front of the panorama contains two groups of overlapping silhouettes facing each other across the panels. Emily Dickinson's name is printed between the two groups. The back of the panorama shows two silhouettes facing each other with a red wash of color extending from each figure's mouth, expanding across several panels, and then meeting in the middle. Bound in wooden boards hand-painted with sprinkled dots of gold and colors. Backed in raw silk, with a gilt-stamped leather band and handmade paper endpapers stamped with the word "LOVE." Housed in a paper-covered box, with a gilt-stamped leather label to the front cover, around which rosy color radiates. Inside the box, a window has been cut out to reveal a portrait of Emily Dickinson on one side and a leather label stamped in gilt with "XXXVII." Altogether a fine miniature artist's book. (Book measures 2 7/8 by 2 1/8 [73x54mm]; box measures 3 9/16 by 2 7/8 [91x74mm]). Bookseller Inventory # 26901
