Item Description: Scribner & Co. / The Century Co., New York, 1935. Hardcover. Magazine. 114 bound volumes with the original wrappers and advertisements bound in. Quartos. A consecutive run from 1873-1935 of Mary Mapes Dodge's famous monthly magazine for girls and boys, known for debuting the work of many important American and English writers. Among the many complete works included in this run are the first printed appearances of several major titles, including Alcott's *Eight Cousins* and Burnett's *Little Lord Fauntleroy*, five *Jungle Book* and three *Just-So* stories by Rudyard Kipling, and Mark Twain's *Tom Sawyer Abroad*. Works from the 20th Century include Jack London's early novel, *The Cruise of the Dazzler*; four prize-winning poems by the young Edna St. Vincent Millay; L. Frank Baum's "Juggerjook" and *Queen Zixi of Ix* (which he and many readers consider his best book); and A.A. Milne's poem "Teddy Bear" illustrated by Reginald Birch, which marked the first American appearance of Winnie-the-Pooh. Also included are other contributions by Alcott, Burnett, and Milne, Howard Pyle's *The Story of King Arthur and His Knights*, and Palmer Cox's popular and long running series "The Brownies." Other notable contributors are William Dean Howells, Joel Chandler Harris, Frederic Remington, and Jacob Riis. As editor, Dodge contributed stories and poems, wrote the monthly column "Jack-in-the-Pulpit," and created the magazine's departments, including the celebrated "St. Nicholas League" in 1899. The League published prize-winning poetry and prose, puzzles, drawings, and photographs submitted by the magazine's young readers. Among the notable submissions from 1904-1910, the League published seven poems and a letter by Millay, and Eudora Alice Welty had a prize-winning drawing: "A Heading for August" published in 1920. Listed on the Roll of Honor for drawings in August 1905 is Edward Estlin Cummings; F. Scott Fitzgerald was listed in October 1910 for a photograph; and in the November 1911 issue William Faulkner (as Falkner) was listed for a drawing. A remarkable assemblage of first appearances of major works for children. Further details available upon request. Bookseller Inventory # 374083

Item Description: Boston: Printed by Manning and Loring, 1799, 1799. Boston: Printed by Manning and Loring, 1799. First edition. Contemporary dark green leather, decorated in gilt, marbled endpapers, (A)6, B-X6. The personal copy of co-compiler Joseph May, his name gilt-stamped on the front. This is the first American Unitarian hymn book. Freeman, Minister of the King's Chapel (also known as the Stone Chapel) in Boston, and May, Assistant Church Warden there and a merchant, were instrumental, with many others, in the establishment of American Unitarianism. May was the grandfather of Louisa May Alcott and father of the abolitionist Reverend Samuel J. May. On the front flyleaf is the ownership signature of Emily James who writes: "This book was given to me by Rev. Samuel J. May in 1842, several months after the death of his father. It was compiled by Dr. Freeman & Col. May and was used at the Stone Chapel until Mr. Greenwood's collection was substituted." A beautiful copy, somewhat rubbed but perfectly sound. The gilt on the lower spine is less bright than the rest, just as would be expected from Colonel May's usage, held open in one hand. A Fine copy.

In 1870 Sampson Low reissued the 2 parts in 1 volume. The British Library copy of our book was received in 1868 and dated 1869 (NSTC).
