Copyright 1891; issued 1892 with no additional printings. TEG; the others deckled. Inscribed and signed by the author to Captain John Gregory Bourke on February 12, 1894 in Philadelphia.

Tipped-in photograph (2-1/8" x 3-3/8") of Lincoln as frontispiece. Abraham Lincoln's account of the failed Hampton Roads peace conference of 3 February 1865. This copy signed by Stewart to Clark Prescott Bissett on the front endpaper: "C P Bissett Esq/ Compliments of/Judd Stewart/ Apr 28/11. Bissett's fireplace bookplate is present on the front pastedown. Presented to the State College of Washington by Mrs. A. W. Witherspoon as part of the Witherspoon/Bissett Collection with a tipped-in bookplate to the front pastedown identifying this title as a volume in the Lincoln Collection, and overstamped "Withdrawn".

The boards have moderate wear at the corners, lightly rubbed through on the uppers and heavier wear, with a bit of surface chipping, at the lowers.

The binding has a very slight separation between the second blank and the frontispiece. The scan provided may not show all the edgewear as the book is slightly larger than the scanner bed. A digital photograph failed to show any detail, including the lettering, and so was rejected. A scarce title with an impressive provenance. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Inscribed and Signed By Author.

Item Description: The Bowen-Merrill Co., Indianapolis, 1897. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. R. B. Gruelle (illustrator). 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Two-tone green cloth with titles stamped in gilt. 90 pages with 6 illustrations. Matching dates (1891) to title and copyright pages, but 1897 to the publisher's catalogue at the rear. With a 30-line handwritten poem entitled "Spring" and the author's initials (JWR) to the verso of the front endpaper and the half-title. The poem is actually an early version of "When the Green Gits Back in the Trees". The poem would be added to later editions of this work, but does not appear in this volume. This version has "In the spring" in the first line, as opposed to "In spring" in the published version. Several words in this version were changed in the published version to reflect Riley's use of dialect. For example, Riley's use of the word "swet" in line 24 of the published version is "sweat" here. This copy does list "The Flying Islands of the Night" in the author's box. The publisher's catalogue has 21 pages, with the final entry for publications of the Indiana Historical Society. Riley's volumes are listed to "Armazindy" (1894). CONDITION: The cloth is lightly worn at the extremities, with a 1/4" scuff at the heel. The paper has mild toning, and the half-title is detached and laid in. It has two small chips which do not affect any of the lettering or writing. This page carries the last third of the handwritten poem and the author's initials. Former owner's name to the front endpaper; two small clippings affixed to the last page of the text. Otherwise a clean, tight copy. The half-title being detached is the probable result of handling the poem. Quite possibly a unique copy. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 59727

This is a very light stain, and does not warp the paper. There is no damage to the images or titles. The hinges are solid and the binding is square. This volume deals with the architecture and sculpture of Brabant and Flanders. Uncommon early color lithography. Bookseller Inventory # 79706

Item Description: Eget Forlag, Kristiania, 1895. Three Quarter Leather. Book Condition: Very Good. Facsimiles, Photographs and Map (illustrator). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Norwegian language. Bound in three-quarter leather and marbled boards. 1895 date to the title page with no additional printings. Decorated endpapers. Pp. 480; XXIX. Illustrated throughout with photographs, facsimiles of engravings and documents, a map, and architectural drawings of the ship. An account of the building and travels of the reproduction ship "Viking", produced for the Columbian Exposition in 1893. The ship was based on the Gokstad ship, the remains of which had been recovered in 1880. The ship was captained by the author, Magnus Andersen, with a hand-picked crew. The trip began in Bergen, Norway, crossed the Atlantic Ocean to Newport, RI, and then made its way up the Hudson River, across the Erie Canal, and thence through the Great Lakes to arrive in Chicago, Illinois, July 12, 1893. On a stop in Milwaukee, Rasmus Anderson, an early proponent of the "Vikings first in America" theory ("Amerika ikke Opdaget af Columbus" author) , gave a speech claiming that had the Norse settlements in Vinland been successful, listeners may have been speaking Icelandic instead of English. Unlike the reproductions of Columbus' ships, which were towed, the "Viking" made the entire trip under sail. The ship has had several homes since 1893, and now resides in a special shelter in Geneva, Illinois. Notes: Odd Lovoll, in his account of Norwegians in Chicago before 1930, "A Century of Urban Life", gives the first word of the title as "Vikingfoerden", eliminating the first "e" and changing the "ae" to "oe". The spine of the book mistakenly drops the "r", likely just a typo. As we haven't located any other copies for sale, we are not positive that all copies have this error. We have given the title as it appears on the title page. (The image of the ship also appears on the Norse-American Centennial stamp, issued in 1925.) The leather is rubbed at the corners, spine and spine ends, with slight loss at the latter. Hinges solid, binding square. The signature of University of Wisconsin - Madison professor Julius E. Olson appears on the second blank, with the later bookplate of Norwegian-American collector Herman Gimmestad to the front pastedown. The book is otherwise unmarked. A clean, tight copy. Scarce. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 123460

Bound in ribbed charcoal cloth with corners and backstrip in brown leather. Spine in five compartments, with titles and decorations stamped in gilt.

The cloth has a small bump at the front cover fore-edge. The colored map of Illinois has a small number 306 penned to it, and the front pastedown carries a tasteful bookplate; otherwise the volume is unmarked. Hinges solid; binding square. A clean, tight copy. An important county study, with its extensive lead mining history and the Grant residence in Galena. Uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 123899

Item Description: Trykt Paa Forfatterens Forlag, Kjobenhavn, 1824. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. 1824 date on the title page. This is been improperly repaired at some time in the past. The book is bound in gray cloth with what to appear to be the original leather corners showing some scuffing and rubbing. The spine has been replaced with a type of tape which gives a poor imitation of fake leather. The hinges are taped with some old and poorly done binder tape so that the book does not open properly at the hinges, although the rest of the book opens easily and properly. The pages are clean and flexible. On a front blank endpaper is the bookplate of Rasmus Anderson and his signature with a 1878 date.
