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.

Featuring Depictions of Gabon, Mozambique, India, Ormus, Moluccas, and China. WITH THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF EARLY 17TH-CENTURY GERMAN HAND-COLORING, HEIGHTENED IN GOLD. According to the descriptions in Icones, the women of the Portuguese wore veils over their faces and were carried on sedans or stretchers, which they called pallamquinos. This is how their spouses protected their wives' chastity. The men suffered from jealousy, as such all men were prohibited from visiting women, Icones tells us. Translation of text below engraved image: Title: How the Portuguese women and daughters/ are being carried around in India Text: The Portuguese women and daughters in India are being carried as shown above from two slaves or servants in a sedan chair/ like they are men. They call the sedan chairs Pallamkyn. Although one can see their women very seldom on the streets/ they are being carried to church however/ the Pallamkyn are usually covered with a sheet/ so that you cannot see them underneath it. They are being followed by slaves/ their own maids and servants/ as shown in this illustration. The covered Pallamkyn is shown in this illustration. 11 1/2" x 7 1/2". Bookseller Inventory # 003397

Item Description: Roberts Brothers, Boston, 1868. Together with; LITTLE WOMEN, PART SECOND. Boston: 1869" Two Volumes. FIRST EDITIONS. FIRST PRINTING of the First Part, with the title-page dated 1868, with no mention of Part Second on page 341, and without Part One on the spine. The third page of terminal ads has this title priced at $1.50, rather than $1.25 which is a variant unrecorded by BAL, and which was considered an issue point by some early collectors, though Kevin MacDonnell confirms that it, as well as the other points mentioned above, are found in both the first and later printings, and that all copies dated 1868 are from the first printing. FIRST PRINTING, Later State of the Second Part, with the notice for Part One on p. iv. BAL records four states but identification is dependent on the terminal ads which are absent here and seemingly never bound in. Part First is in terra-cotta and Part Second is in green cloth. Each volume has a tissue-guarded frontispiece and three inserted illustrations. Part First has been recased with new endpapers. The cloth is quite soiled and has some residual wrinkling. There is some staining to the front board of Part Second and some minor overall flecking to the cloth. Both volumes are slightly cocked. A Good set only, but with the advantage of having always been together, as evinced by matching gift inscriptions at the front of each volume to an Elizabeth [or Lizzie] Barker from Emma, Minnie, and Sarah Jones, dated Christmas 1868 and Christmas 1869 respectively.

Item Description: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens, Philadelphia, 1802. No binding. Periodical. Folio. A set of four weekly issues from June, 1802. (Volume 2, Nos. 22-25). Each weekly issue consists of eight pages, untrimmed as originally published, and professionally sewn into one set of four consecutive issues. Browning and scattered foxing, with two partial columns (seven and two inches) clipped from the last leaf of the first issue (pp. 175-176), else good. Contains the first American appearance of a sensational burlesque version of "Little Red Riding Hood" (pages 173-174). 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

A good copy of the rare first UK edition . Little Women was first published in America between 1st and 15th of October 1868 and dated 1868. This was the first part and a second part followed in April 1869, known now in England as Good Wives. The first Engish edition of Little Women (first part) was announced for the Christmas market in November and December 1868. It was the practice of English publishers of children's books to date them for the following year so that they would continue to sell throughout the year after Christmas. Sampson and Low's English Part II, issued with the same title as Part I (as in America), appeared in May 1869 and was dated 1869 and described as "Part Second". In 1870 Sampson Low reissued the 2 parts in 1 volume. The British Library copy of our book was received in 1868 but dated 1869 (NSTC). No copy is currently listed in the British Library catalogues, no copy sold at auction since 1987. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

Item Description: PEDEE AIRLIE OREGON POLK COUNTY PACIFIC NORTHWEST, 1933. Book Condition: Good+. 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall. 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." "April 12th, Eva was down before the boys were done with breakfast. Karen was along. Grace went to school with us. We walked to Bill's, got a ride with him from there. I worked on the puzzle. I finished the puzzle tonight, Indians hunting buffalo. We practiced Easter play on stage at last period. Mr. Bradley took Lyle home after he got hit on the nose with a baseball. Madeline found some Lady Slippers." "April 23rd, Jim took us to S.S. and church. I played. I had 5 in class today. Mr. Fogg preached from Obadiah 17-21. After church we went up above the Cherry Grove Schoolhouse. We ate dinner there and left the car. We walked up to the Haite (?) place and got some daffodils. Grandma went with us. Cliff brought us home. Passed Rex and Beverly going home. Victor and Nettie took Letha to town." "May 12th, I took some of Mrs. Grazon's papers to school for advent event. I almost didn't get my thought copied in time for class. Mr. Brady assigned us poets to write about. Mine are Harriet Monroe and Harold Monroe. We stopped at Freda's. I got the puzzle of Beth's. I went up to Aunt Eva's and got some papers for Endeavor Party. Proff. Bookseller Inventory # 0001579
