Item Description: Boston. Roberts Brothers, 1868. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fair. No Jacket. Copyright page lists only 1868. 1868 printed on the title page as well. Stereotyped by Innes & Regan. Hardcover. Bound in original faded purple cloth. Gold titles in an oval on the front cover. The same gold on the spine, with Roberts Brothers at the foot of the spine. Cover is worn and corners are bumped. The spine is incomplete. It is detached from the rear hinge and the left half of the title is missing. In all, a piece of the spine about 1" x 4" is gone. Also, about a quarter of an inch strip down the whole left side of the spine. The back cover is attached and complete, showing the same sort of wear as the front cover. Original brown endpapers. Splitting at the front gutter, nearly intact at the rear. All 4 plates by May Alcott are present. All four have been, for better or worse, hand colored. However, they were inexpertly colored, so the end result while likely quite old, is not ideal. The binding needs attention. The first 96 pages of the text block are still square and well sewn. Signatures 7, 8, 9 (pages 97-114) are less well attached, but are still square and sit neatly in place. Signatures 10, 11, 12 (pages145-192) are detached. The holes through which they were sewn are in great shape & there are no tears at the creases, so they can be easily resewn, when the book is repaired. Signature 13 is loose, but still attached. And the rest of the book is all still properly sewn and glued. There are a couple pages in the second half that protrude a bit much, but there's no damage to them and they can be tucked back into place when the book is repaired. 341 pages in all. The end of the story makes no reference to the second volume, which Alcott did not write or publish until the next year. There are 6 pages of ads (2 sheets of paper) at the rear. They are numbered 3, 2, 11, 12, 8, 11 at the bottom. The first 2 pages of ads are for Ingelow's writings. Then pages of other Roberts Bros editions. Then the final page is for Juveniles. The book measures just under 5" by 6.75". There are no ownership markings or writing of any sort in the book, except for the coloring of the 4 plates. The frontispiece plate has the tissue guard. . Page 341 was dogeared, but I've unfolded it. Pages are evenly toned from age, but not foxed. One of the high points of American Literature and an instant classic and best seller. Alcott wrote a second part which was published in 1869. The two titles were republished in a single volume some years later and it is those 2 volumes combined that we now consider the complete book.

They call the sedan chairs Pallamkyn.

Item Description: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens, Philadelphia, 1802. No binding. Periodicals. Folios. A set of four weekly issues from June, 1802. (Volume 2, Nos. 22-25). Each weekly issue consists of eight pages, disbound but untrimmed as originally published, and professionally sewn into one set of four consecutive issues. Browning and scattered foxing, with two columns (measuring 3" x 7" and 3" x 2.5") clipped from the last leaf of the first issue (pp. 175-176), else good.

First published anonymously in *Tales of Terror* (London, 1801), a collection of ballads satirizing the gothic writings of Matthew Gregory "Monk" Lewis, this account of the nursery tale is notably grimmer than the 1812 Brothers Grimm version. *The Port Folio* was an important Federalist literary magazine founded in Philadelphia in 1801 and edited by Joseph Dennie under the pen name "Oliver Oldschool, Esq." Also included in the June 5th issue are obituary notices for Martha Washington, "widow of the late illustrious general," and Sara Jay, "the amiable and much respected wife of his excellency John Jay.".

Item Description: Little Falls Defense Committee, N.p., n.d. [Little Falls, ca 1912?]. Exceptional strike poster to raise defense funds for individuals arrested following the Little Falls Textile Strike of 1912. Though less well-known than the two massive IWW actions that sandwiched it - Paterson and Lowell - the Little Falls strike marked an important (if ultimately pyrrhic) victory for labor, and marked a rare example of co-operation between various non-aligned leftist factions, including main-line Socialists, Anarchists, and the I.W.W. (under whose direction the strike proceeded). Though the strikers won concessions, including shorter hours and higher pay, most of the strike leaders were arrested and, despite a vigorous defense effort, most wound up serving substantial prison sentences. These included IWW organizer Benjamin Legere and the Italian anarchist Filipo Bocchini. This poster, issued to raise funds for the defense of the arrested strike organizers, features portraits of the principal defendants, including M. Helen Schloss, the strike's heroine. Schloss, a tuberculosis nurse, had been brought to Little Falls by mill owners to address the local consumption epidemic. In the process of investigating the living and working conditions of the Little Falls millworkers, which she found appaling, she resigned her position and became one of the strike's lead organizers. She was arrested, examined for mental illness, and eventually released, at which point she joined William D. Haywood and Carlo Tresca on their nationwide fundraising and lecture tour, at which events this poster would have been displayed. Exceptionally rare. Not known in commerce; catalogued in the collection of only one OCLC member institution (University of British Columbia); not in the collection of the Little Falls Historical Society, which owns a number of other strike-related broadsides and handbills. Original lithographed poster, 25" x 19". Printed in red and black on uncoated stock. Text in three languages (English, Polish, and Italian), within rules, surrounding central 8-image portrait montage. Blank rules at center (unused). Old wrinkles and wear; single mended tear to upper margin; no losses or significant soil - Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 19874

Temple of the Fairies: The Yellow Dwarf;: d'Aulnoy, Marie Catherine;

Item Description: Vernor and Hood, London, 1804. Hardcover. Book Condition: g. First UK edition. 12mo. 296pp. 285, [1]pp. Contemporary three-quarter morocco over maroon peddled cloth, with gold lettering, tooling and ruling on spines. Raised bands. Top edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Engraved frontispiece in first volume, and engraved title in both volumes. Marvelous collection of 13 fairy tales illustrated with 35 full-page and in-text engravings. Some tales are by Marie Catherine d'Aulnoy (1650/1651-1705), a French writer known for her fairy tales. When she termed her works contes de fées (fairy tales), she originated the term that is now generally used for the genre. Unlike the folk tales of the Grimm Brothers, who were born some 135 years later than d'Aulnoy, she told her stories in a more conversational style, as they might be told in salons. These stories were far from suitable for children ! The other tales are from Charles Perrault and the Arabian Knights (Zipes, "Victorian" XVII). Initials of previous owner and date on half-title page of first volume. Heavy foxing to frontispiece and first few pages of Vol. I. Sporadic foxing throughout. Tight copies in overall good+ condition. Rare English edition. Bookseller Inventory # 19744

Item Description: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens, Philadelphia, 1802. Quarto (32cm); printed wrappers, disbound, but untrimmed; pp.[169]-176. Text is toned (though not brittle), mild wear to extremities, with scattered foxing; Very Good+. Important issue of this Federalist newspaper, published by Joseph Dennie and Philadelphia bookseller Asbury Dickens. Notable for the inclusion of 'The Wolf King; or Little Red Riding Hood,' a decidedly grotesque version of the traditional Little Red Riding Hood story told in 26 stanzas. First published in Terror Tales (London: W.Bulmer & Co., 1801) and once attributed to M.G. Lewis, the publication in The Port Folio marks its first appearance in the United States. In comparison to the Brothers Grimm version of 1812, this version lacks the redemptive appearance of the huntsman, and ends with Little Red Riding Hood meeting a gruesome end at the hands of the wolf. "His hungry teeth the wolf king gnash'd, His sparkling eyes with fury flash'd, He'd op'd his jaws all sprent with blood, And fell on small red riding hood. / He tore out bowels one and two, "Little maid, I will eat you!" But when he tore out three and four, The little maid she was no more!" Not the first appearance of Little Red Riding Hood in the United States (OCLC notes three pre-1802 American editions of the traditional version based on Perrault, along with two others), though certainly the first appearance of this particular iteration. Additionally, this issue contains obituaries for Martha Washington and Sarah Jay (wife of John Jay). Uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 2274

Item Description: PEDEE AIRLIE OREGON POLK COUNTY PACIFIC NORTHWEST, 1933. Book Condition: Good+. On offer is an interesting archive of two [2] original diaries: a 1933 manuscript Depression Era diary handwritten by a then school age [17?] young woman who lived in the country around the Pedee and Airlie areas of Oregon which is in Polk County Oregon and the same woman in a 1965 diary. (Remarkably little has changed over the 30+ years!) While she does not specify her name anywhere there is one particular clue when she mentions "Grandpa Condron" that will assist local collectors in fleshing out her identity. The diary also offers researchers and historians of the place and time with the interesting perspective of how primitive in many ways the Pacific Northwest. As one online source provides: "Small town similar to Airlie were dotted along the railroad lines of Oregon from the 1880's onto the 1920's. They were comprised of several small merchants, a few modest agriculture or time related mills or enterprises, a standardized railroad station and a post office. The railroad from Monmouth to Airlie was abandoned in 1927 and the community was virtually abandoned during WWII when the surrounding land was incorporated into Camp Adair. Today it is a crossroads best known as the site of the Airlie Winery." Other places mentioned are Bald Mountain, Lewisville, Dallas, Kings Valley and the Cherry Grove Schoolhouse. The diary is a little over 2/3rd full of handwritten entries. About 100 blank days and most of those are in the fall. But this is a great vintage diary showing just how hard this young girl worked on the farm and also what her social life was like living in the country of Oregon in the 1930s. Here are some snippets: 1933 "January 28th, Didn't get up very early. Leo and Jim went to help dig the grave. Theda went over to Aunt Eva's with them. Jim took mamma's quilts to the store. I worked on some back school work but didn't get it done. Mama swept the upstairs. I got my wood in. Jim and Leo went to the store in the evening. They brought mamma's quilts back. The red bed spread had a ribbon on it." "February 28th, Theda and I walked. She stopped at Kearns. The girls and mamma rode in the truck with Jim. Mamma and Theda went to the Holiness meeting in Dallas with Joe. Mamma and the girls saw the baby this morning. I didn't. We walked home tonight. We are to go to prayer meeting with Joe. 22 went in his truck to prayer meeting. 23 came back as his dog followed him. Had a Sunday school meeting." "March 6th, We walked to school. The committee decided to write the principle at Kings Valley to see if they could come to a party March 24. Will write letter tomorrow. We walked home in the rain tonight. We stopped at Freda's. Delsie gave us a tart. She gave us some onions and some butter. Mamma is to make them some bread. Old Lady died. Grandpa Condron gave her to mamma when she was married. Lady was 2 years old then."

Item Description: Roberts Brothers. Boston, 1869. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Hardcover. Purple cloth with gold lettering on the cover and spine. The spine is sunned/faded to brown, with the gold titles a bit bleached out. Some fraying to crown and foot of spine, some rounding to the corners of the boards. Brown endpapers. Gift inscription on the first blank page dated Christmas 1869. Title page is dated 1869. Copyright page is dated 1868. 341 pages. At the bottom of the last page is the publisher's note, "End of Part First. Part Second, completing Little Women is published in a volume to match this." There are no advertisements at all at the end of this volume. Text block good and tight. Frontispiece and 3 additional plates by May Alcott present and in good condition. Some toning to the pages, but no foxing or stains. The first edition of Little Women has the publication date of 1868 on the title page. This copy has 1869 on the title page, making it a second state -- in addition, this copy does mention the second volume at the end. Publication history is delightfully varied for this volume, though -- the binders inserted packets of advertisements in the rear of the volumes as they prepared them for sale; those packets of ads are thought to correlate with then the books were sold, but this volume has no ads at all, making it an exception to the norm. This spine of this volume does not say Part One, which suggests that it was bound in one of the early covers (printed before Part Two was ready). All this binding and shuffling of pages happened within the first many months of publication, as the original printing of 2,000 copies first trickled and then flowed out of stores in the early months of 1869, then positively flooding when Part Two was published, making it one of the most popular childrens books of the 19th century. The Christmas 1869 inscription on the blank page at the front, "Presented to Annie H. Gray by her mother" placed this solidly within the first year of availability. Please email with questions or to request photos. I have a copy or two of the second part as well, if you'd like to cobble together a complete set. Bookseller Inventory # R-58
