About this Item: 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 (Myerson, 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.

About this Item: Roberts Brothers, Boston, 1891. First edition of Emily Dickinson's second book of poetry, one of only 960 copies of the first printing. Octavo, original cloth, original gray cloth, top edge gilt. In near fine condition with a touch of rubbing. Housed in a custom cloth and chemise case. Emily Dickinson published only 11 poems during her lifetime, but upon her death in 1886, her sister Lavinia discovered 1775 manuscript poems. Mabel Todd edited and published the three series of these poems until a quarrel between the Dickinson and Todd families led to a division of the manuscripts, preventing the further publication of complete and authoritative editions of Dickinson's poetry until 70 years after her death (Wolff). Dickinson's lyrics, "her letter to the world," offer an account "of the life about her, of tiny ecstasies set in motion by mutations of the seasons or by home and garden incidents, of candid insights into her own states of consciousness, and of speculations on the timeless mysteries of love and death. Her mind was charged with paradox" (Hart, 201). Seller Inventory # 85348

About this Item: [East Hampton, NY, 2015. Artist's book, unique, all on Richard de Bas cream wove paper, signed by the artist on the titlepage. Page size: 10 x 6-1/2 inches; [i-vi] 33pp. Bound: loose as issued, housed in buff covered paper over boards folder, traditional two over two sash window drawn in black and white ink on front of folder, housed in buff cloth over boards clamshell box by Joelle Webber with Mylar window on front through which one can see the window. The opening text is the first stanza of Emily Dickinson's "I dwell in possibilities / A fairer House than Prose - More numerous of Windows." The images that follow are accomplished in India inks: a black ground surrounded by thin red border with a window (or part of window) drawn in white ink; black paper with white polka dots is collaged in various shapes and sizes on each page. Page 3 has the text, "Was she merely"; the next text appears on page 8, "Was she merely being kind?" Page 11 reads, "merely." Page 14: "merely being kind?" The words in the question are repeated throughout the book, the windows becoming more and more abstract. Triangles, rays of light, and (maybe) doors feature in each image. Doors and windows - prose and poetry - black holes and (maybe) the night sky open the reader / viewer's eyes to limitless possibilities. A nod to Concrete Poetry's use of word / phrase permutations that is an elegant book. Seller Inventory # 11072

About this Item: Roberts Brothers, Boston, 1896. Gilt Decorated Cloth. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 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.

About this Item: The Old Stile Press [2013], [Monmouthshire], 2013. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Kiggell, Ralph (illustrator). Limited Edition. Special Edition, No. I of X, folio size, 52 pp., signed by Ralph Kiggell. The special edition includes a separate suite of woodcuts, titled, numbered (1/10) and signed by Ralph Kiggell, in four colours, that complement but are different from the illustrations in the volume; these illustrations are printed on Japanese paper, with water-based inks and by hand, using a baren, by the artist himself. Both are encased in a custom clamshell box. The title comes from D.H. Lawrence's wonder at "the third thing" that binds an oxygen atom with two of hydrogen. A selection of poems with woodcut images by Ralph Kiggell, all centred about the idea of WATER. Ralph "allowed himself to explore poems and prose - from across different ages and cultures - to inspire the illustration of water as it interacts with landscape, animal and man. Poets and writers have shown us that from sea to land to cloud and back to sea, the cycle of water encapsulates history and life itself." (N.B., from the web site of The Old Stile Press.) Each selection is lavishly illustrated with woodcut illustrations printed in colours reminiscent of water - blues, greens, aquas - with each illustration spilling over two pages.___DESCRIPTION: Paper covered boards papers printed with the artist's images of fish swimming, blue spine lettering, grey endpapers, Introduction by the illustrator, woodcuts throughout printed directly from the wood in multiple colours; folio size (approximately 13" tall), unpaginated with 26 leaves, paper Velin Arches, France (with watermark on the paper); limited edition of 150 total, this no. I of X copies of the Special Edition. A separate suite of four illustrations made by Ralph Kiggel himself, see above for details; these are enclosed in a paper-covered wallet. Both the volume and the wallet with the suite of illustrations are enclosed in a custom clamshell box covered in linen cloth with a decorative paper label on the front, lined with royal blue suede.___CONDITION: Fine, the separate suites of illustrations fine, as is its wallet and the custom box.___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

About this Item: 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!.

About this Item: 1896. Edited by Mabel Loomis Todd. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1896. Original white cloth decorated in gilt with green cloth spine, all page edges gilt. First Edition, which consisted of only 1,000 copies.~Emily [1830-1886] attended Amherst Academy; spent one year (1847-48) at South Hadley Female Seminary (ancestress of Mount Holyoke College); visited Washington and Philadelphia for a few weeks in the spring of 1854, while her father was in Congress; spent part of 1864 and 1865 in Boston to be treated for eye trouble; and died at fifty-five of Bright's disease. That is the entire record of her outward life. It is the least important thing about her.~To account for Emily Dickinson the recluse, who for twenty years never went farther than her garden gate, who saw no one but her family and a very few chosen friends, who dressed always in white and wrote her poems secretly on scraps of paper, rolled and tied with a thread and thrust into bureau drawers, one need not imagine any strange mysteries of love and renunciation. Certainly Emily loved an unknown man, loved him deeply and unceasingly, but could not or would not marry him.~She had the same sort of demanding, tyrannical, autocratic, and possessive father as did Elizabeth Barrett; and she did not escape. Emily's lover was not strong enough to overcome the terrific attachment, half love, half fear, that tied her to [her father] Edward Dickinson. Her hermit life, driven into and upon herself, was her answer to the tyranny which turned an ardent, gay, witty girl into a shy and withered spinster. [K&H]~Other than a few poems anonymously contributed, none of Emily's verse was published during her lifetime (-- to avoid what she called "the auction of the mind"). After her death, her brother Austin and sister Lavinia (who controlled the manuscripts) arranged to have a volume published in 1890; one of the friends who edited it, T.W. Higginson, could not convince Houghton Mifflin (for whom he worked) to publish it -- as they considered it "confused." Roberts Bros tentatively issued just 500 copies, and was then dumbfounded to see the book meet unprecedented demand and quickly run through many printings. Thus a "Second Series" of additional poems was published in 1891 (960 copies), followed by this "Third [and last] Series" in 1896. The cover design for all three volumes includes Indian pipes -- from a painting Mabel Loomis Todd had given to Emily in 1882 that thereafter hung in the latter's bedroom -- what Emily called her "preferred flower of life."~The 1,000 copies were bound in two similar cloth bindings (no priority, but of differing price). Binding A, as here, is white cloth with gilt Indian pipes, with pea-green cloth spine and all page edges gilt (priced at $1.50); binding B is grey or olive cloth, beveled board edges (also with the Indian pipes), with only the top edge gilt (priced at $1.25). Of the two cloth bindings, this "A" is generally a bit more sought-after -- because it is a closer match to the only binding in which the First Series of poems had come out, and because today "A" binding copies are scarcer than "B" binding copies.~This copy is in very good-plus, perhaps near-fine condition -- the only noteworthy flaw being a damp-mark at the top of the rear board. The white cloth is generally rather clean, the front cover and spine gilt is bright, and the endpapers are intact. Myerson A4.1.a. Seller Inventory # 13934

About this Item: Denio and Phelps, Printers, Greenfield, Mass, 1818. Printed broadside with type ornament border. Folio (16-1/4 x 13-1/4 in.). 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."

About this Item: New York City, NY: Aperture Foundation/Yale University Art Gallery, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 84 pages. Published in 2009. New And Expanded Edition of the photographer's classic. One of the most beautiful photography books of our time. Limited Slipcased Edition of 150 numbered and signed copies. Should not be confused with the regular trade edition that was published simultaneously with it. The Limited Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Robert Adams, Katy Homans, and Joshua Chuang: Regular-sized volume format. Black cloth boards with gray metallic-silver titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Robert Adams. Poems by William Blake and Emily Dickinson. Matching black cloth slipcase. Printed in tritone on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Re-presents, in its most collectible Limited Edition format, Robert Adams' "Summer Nights, Walking". One word: Masterpiece. First published in 1985 by Aperture, this definitive new sequence incorporates 39 previously unpublished images. "Robert Adams revisits the classic collection of nocturnal landscapes that he began making in the mid-1970's near his former home in Longmont, Colorado. Illuminated by moonlight and streetlamp, the houses, roads, sidewalks, and fields retain the wonder and stillness of the original edition while adopting the artist's intention of a dreamy fluidity, befitting his nighttime perambulations" (Publisher's blurb). Identified with harsh images of the detritus of modern life, Robert Adams shows in "Summer Nights, Walking" that he has always had a Romantic, even Blakean/mystical relation to both natural landscape and man-made place. Adams is now widely regarded as the greatest American landscape photographer since Ansel Adams, with whom he shares the same surname, and nothing else. Indeed, Robert Adams is the prototypical anti-Ansel Adams photographer, that is, a photographer who rejects what he perceives to be false majesty and grandeur. The images in "Summer Nights, Walking" are moving and eloquent in a serene, hushed, and quiet way. "Along with the incredible printing and understated cover, Adams has added some tougher pictures to the mix. Breathtaking" (Alec Soth). An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Adams collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black ink-pen by Robert Adams. This title is a great photography book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: It should NOT be confused with the regular trade edition, which was issued simultaneously with it. A rare signed copy thus. 70 tritone plates. Robert Adams' "What We Bought: The New West" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest American photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT ADAMS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1597111295. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 21270

About this Item: 1914. Poems of a Lifetime. With an Introduction by her Niece Martha Dickinson Bianchi. Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1914. Original white paper-covered boards with white cloth spine. First (and only) Edition of the fourth collection of Emily Dickinson's verse. This copy is from the first (1914) printing, which consisted of a mere 595 copies; there was a second printing of 293 more copies the following year, but that was it. After Emily died in 1886, her sister Lavinia asked their brother's wife Susan to edit and collect the poems that Emily had written on scraps of paper and squirreled away in her bedroom; however, Susan was slow at this task, and Lavinia gave the project -- which became three separate volumes -- to Mabel Loomis Todd instead (the woman with whom Susan's husband Austin had been having a years-long affair!). These SINGLE HOUND poems were those that "Aunt Emily" sent periodically across the lawn to her "Sister Sue" (actually sister-in-law) at The Evergreens, Emily's brother Austin's home next door in Amherst; thus they were not among the ones posthumously discovered in Emily's bedroom, and one can imagine that Susan had no desire to hand hers over to Mabel. Susan Huntington Gilbert Dickinson died in 1913, soon after which her daughter put together this fourth collection of Emily's poems and provided the lengthy Introduction.~This is an attractive copy, fine except for very light soil on the white boards. The book was issued without a dust jacket -- only with an unprinted glassine wrapper and open-spine box (neither present). Tough to find in any better condition. Myerson A5.1.a; Blanck 4669.
