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 (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.

Item Description: [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. Bookseller Inventory # 11072

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: The Old Stile Press [2013], [Monmouthshire], 2013. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Kiggell, Ralph (illustrator). Limited Edition. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. 52 p. Signed by Artist No. I of X of the Special Edition, signed (total edition 150). 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 Abe 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.

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!.

Item Description: Arion Press, 2007. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. This exquisite limited edition presents a selection of two hundred poems by Emily Dickinson, one of America's greatest poets, with prints by the acclaimed contemporary artist Kiki Smith. The edition is printed by letterpress on handmade paper, produced by the acclaimed Arion Press which "produces some of the most beautiful limited-edition, handprinted books in the world," according to the New York Times. The title of this book was chosen to signal that this is a sampling of the poetry of Emily Dickinson, and it refers to embroidered samplers from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries that inspired the imagery of Kiki Smith. The artist has made prints for every page of the poetry, as well as the half-title page and a portrait of Emily Dickinson on the frontispiece, 206 images in all. These are original prints, for which the artist has scratched lines in the emulsion of photographic negatives with an etching needle and other sharp-pointed tools, thus allowing light to pass through them in the making of photopolymer plates for letterpress printing. The artwork imitates stitchery with short straight and slightly curved strokes like the stitches in samplers, traditionally sewn by young women to demonstrate their domestic skills. The subtle patterns in the artwork of cross-stitches and hatchings become recognizable figures or mysterious forms related to the wondrous imagery in Emily Dickinson's poems. The book measures 11 by 7 inches, 220 pages. The type is Monotype and handset Walbaum. The type and polymer plates were printed by letterpress in black ink for the type and red-brown ink for the plates. The paper was made by hand at the Twinrocker mill. The sheets are hand-sewn with a red-brown goatskin spine, tan cloth sides, with the front cover embroidered in red thread for title and author and artist names. The book is presented in a slipcase. The edition is limited to 400 numbered copies for sale, signed by the artist. Signed by Illustrator(s). Bookseller Inventory # 081

Item Description: New York City, NY: Aperture Foundation/Yale University Art Gallery, 2009. Hardcover. Book 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. Bookseller Inventory # 21270

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.

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

Signed by Artist Limited edition of 400 copies (plus 26 lettered copies NFS), this no. 139, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Foreword by Andrew Hoyem telling the fascinating story of how Emily Dickinson's poems came to be published; when she died at the age of 55, "only ten of her more than seventeen hundred poems had been published, and these appearances were not initiated by her; her publication was arranged by others without her permission". Artwork by Kiki Smith (b. 1954), award-winning artist who was elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2005; the art for this work is in the manner of samplers, with subtle patterns of cross-stitches and hatchings which become recognizable figures or mysterious forms related to the wondrous imagery in Emily Dickinson's poems (N.B., from the web site of the Arion Press). ***DESCRIPTION: Quarter bound in rust goatskin with gilt lettering, cloth boards with lettering in cross-stitch, fore- and bottom edges uncut, frontispiece an illustration by Kiki Smith of Emily Dickinson, additional artwork throughout the volume on almost every page; quarto size (approximately 11" tall), pagination: (1)-217, blank (218), colophon (219), limited edition of 400 numbered copies for sale plus 26 lettered copies, this no. 139, signed by the artist in pencil.
