Item Description: Cambridge: by Thomas Buck and Roger Daniel, 1638, 1638. Two parts in one volume, octavo (179 x 132 mm). Bound in 1840s dark blue morocco antique gilt, all edges gilt, by Clarke & Bedford. Housed in a maroon morocco folding-case, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. A fine copy. The first part in Greek and Latin, the second in English (including "Lycidas"), the second title within a mourning border. First edition, including the first printing of Milton's "Lycidas", his second published work (after his commendatory poem on Shakespeare published in the 1632 second folio). The poem mourns the death of Edward King, a fellow of Christ's College who had drowned off the coast of Anglesey on 10 August 1637. King had been a younger contemporary of Milton at Christ's College. "In the act of composition Milton transcended his ostensible subject and produced a meditation on human mortality that retains the power to move readers centuries after the death of King and those who mourned him" (ODNB). Milton reprinted this poem in his Poems of 1645. There are a few textual differences between the 1638 and 1645 versions of the poem, of which the most notable is the "humming tide" of 1638 replaced by the "whelming tide" of 1645 and all subsequent versions. Notably rare: in his Milton, a Biography (Oxford, 1968), W. R. Parker traced 33 copies of the Justa, all but two of them in institutional libraries; this copy is thus one of the very few remaining in private hands. Provenance: 1) Lancelot Holland (his bookplate, and probably bound for him; his sale, Sotheby's London, 27 July 1860, lot 1318); 2) Sir William Tite, bought by him in 1860, with his inscription on the front free endpaper verso; sale Sotheby's, 18 May 1874 etc., lot 37; Herschel V.

Item Description: Cambridge Printed by Thom[as] Buck and Roger Daniel, 1633. First Edition of George Herbertís "The Temple" HERBERT, George. The Temple. Sacred Poems and Private Ejaculations. Cambridge: Printed by Thom. Buck, and Roger Daniel, printers to the Universitie, 1633. First edition, first state title-page (dated, and without "And are to be sold by Francis Green, stationer in Cambridge") of George Herbertís poetical works. Twelvemo, tall copy (5 11/8 x 3 1/4 inches). [8], 192, [3], [1, blank] pp. Title within typographical border. Bound by F. Bedford (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in) in full dark blue morocco. Covers decoratively paneled in gilt, spine elaborately tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, board edges ruled in gilt, turn-ins decoratively tooled in gilt, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Bookplate of Louis I. Haber and Brayton Ives. Top corners lightly bumped. An excellent copy. This work was edited posthumously by Herbertís friend, Nicholas Ferrer, who was instructed by the poet on his deathbed to either burn or publish the manuscript. The collection was an instant success and went through at least eleven editions up to 1695. His verse output is almost entirely contained within The Temple. Although most of his poetry was religious in nature, his use of imagery was often ingenious, and he relished experimenting with poetic form. The poem "Easter Wings," printed vertically on the page, the lines making the shape of angel's wings, on pp. 34-35, is a notable early example of concrete poetry. "These 160 poems rank among the finest work produced by any of the metaphysical poets, short but often exquisite, distinguished by their carefully wrought shapes, the ingenuity of their images, and their calm and subtle religious faith" (The Cambridge Guide to Literature in English).

Item Description: Troy, NY, 1871. Manuscript. Very rare. One page, partially printed document on "Haymaker Base Ball Club" letterhead, aprox. 5x7". Dated at Troy, N.Y., Oct. 19, 1871 and completed in ink. Original document from the Haymaker Base Ball Club of Troy, New York informing a shareholder of a meeting to be held at "Calder's Office" , 8PM, Friday, October 20th (1871) with notation at bottom "Very important". Traditionally, ball club stockholder meetings would be held (as in this case) shortly after the end of the playing season for the purpose of dividing profits (or, in the not unusual case of a loss for the year, making assessments of members) and paying off the players. The Haymaker Club of Troy was one of the founding members of baseball's first professional league, The National Association, which functioned from 1871 through 1875. The NA was not a strong league, plagued by weak teams, loose discipline and contract-jumping players and was replaced by the still-extant National League in 1876. Troy entered the National League in 1879 and in 1883 transferred the franchise to New York City where it became known as the Giants. Among the notable players to perform for both the Haymakers and the Giants were four future Hall of Famers---Roger Connor, Mickey Welch, Tim Keefe and Buck Ewing. Light mailing folds but otherwise a fine, clean piece. Material from the National Association is exceedingly rare. Bookseller Inventory # X175

A Concise Account of America: containing a: ROGERS, Robert (1731-1795)

Item Description: printed for the Author, and sold by J. Millan, London, 1765. Octavo signed in 4s. (8 1/4 x 5 inches). 1p. page advertisement for subscribers to a second volume (never published). Expertly bound to style in half 18th century russia over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment First edition of one "of the most accurate contemporary accounts of the interior of North America as it was when England took it from France" (Streeter). Rogers acted as a scout for the 1755 expedition against Crown Point, and in 1756 became captain of an independent company of Rangers. He made scores of raids against the French in New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania, going as far west as the shores of Lake Huron. He was sent to receive the capitulation of Western French posts in 1760; en route he met Pontiac, the Ottowa chief, and received his submission to English supremacy. Rogers was also present at the siege of Detroit by Pontiac 1763. Rogers exploits made him the most romantic and famous figure of the war in America, a reputation that was cemented with the publication of his Journal in 1765. The present work was published in the same year. "In the concise account of the several colonies, he mingles many particulars of the Indian nations, but its especial interest is to be found in the section of his volume devoted to the Customs, Manners, and Government of the Indians, pp. 205 to 264. These relations are the result of his own personal experience" (Field). Howes concurs with both Streeter and Field, noting that the work is based "largely on personal knowledge. [and that] this was the first geographical account of the American interior after England had wrested it from France, and, aside from those by Pittman and Hutchins, the most accurate of the period."

Item Description: IRON MINNESOTA MN, 1933. Book Condition: Very Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. On offer is an outstanding archive of seven [7] original manuscript diaries, one [1] autograph book, 16 vacation photos from 1953 and other ephemera. The diaries were handwritten by Mary Elizabeth Kendall [b. March 5th 1919] Iron Minnesota. Researchers and collectors of the area or of women's of gender studies of the era will find an interesting grouping with dates taking the reader from watching Mary evolve from a cowboy crazy kid to a University of Minnesota graduate to a middle aged family woman, librarian, hospital volunteer and basic salt of the earth American woman. From the outset we find she is such a charming and engaging young lady who details what life was like for a teen-age girl during the Great Depression. She loved her movies and movie actors and bought all the latest star magazines, she loved reading westerns and considered herself somewhat of a cowgirl and listened to "Uncle Sam's Forest Rangers" radio show along with Hopalong Cassidy and Buck Rogers; she calls herself "Cowboy crazy." She belonged to the "Lone Wolf Tribe" and was always receiving different things in the mail from them. She owned a "Cutex Miniature Manicure Set" and an "Orphan Annie Shake-up mug" and couldn't wait until the new Sears Roebuck catalogue came out. She also collected cereal box tops, grew "Depression Flowers" and entered all the latest contests. During her college years she receives a bachelor degree in science at the University of Minnesota. Most of the ephemeral items are from her college years. Here are snippets: 1933 "January 7th, Went to town with mother this morning. Bought a notebook for pictures of movie stars. The "men of the family" sawed wood. Went to a movie called "The All American." It was neat. Richard Arlen was the hero and Gloria Stuart was the heroine." "February 19th, Got 16 in the General Science test! The passing score was about 20!! There is one question in the test that we didn't mark yet so 16 isn't my real score. Took my makeup algebra test after school. Entered a contest by sending a limerick. Hope I win. Fed my goldfish." "March 5th, Today is my birthday and I'm fourteen years old!!!!!!! Yesterday mother gave me a dollar for a present. I'm going to subscribe to a magazine. These are pretty hard times now. Yesterday the Virginia banks closed." "March 11th, Went to town with mother and Boots. Went to the movie "Sherlock Holmes". It was great. It showed the time when Holmes killed professor Moriarty. Clive Brooke played the title role. I'm fixing over a silk dress that one of my aunts sent. All I do is raise the belt. Listened to the KMOX County Fair. I like Wyoming Jack best." "April 13th, Easter vacation began today. Mother and Boots sold 40 chickens at the market (I guess) today. Mother and John played cribbage and bridge against Books and me tonight. Death Valley Days was extra good today. About Red Carson, the outlaw, and the widow's mortgage. Fed my goldfish." "April 17th, Helped wing band chicks this afternoon. Cleaned out my room a little. Fed my goldfish. Received my Lone Wolf Tribe bracelet. It certainly isn't as nice as I thought it would be. It turns my arm sort of green like the 10 cent store rings." "May 27th, Went to town with mother and Mrs. Johnson and her baby, Mary Ann, who is sick. Went into the bank vault for the first time with mother. It seemed so simple. I don't see how the vault can be so safe. Went to "The Kid from Spain" starring Eddie Cantor. Pretty good. Fed my goldfish." "June 16th, Went up town with mother. Filled in some more entries for the hog naming contest. Bought the first ice cream cone I've had this year. Received my Buck Rogers book. It's great. Heard the last Buck Rogers program on the radio. Wish it wasn't the last. Fed my fish." "July 4th, Someone stole 6 or 7 of our chickens last night or this morning. We think we know who did it. Went to the fourth of July picnic for the Farmer's Club. Had four ice cream cones and some fun. Fed my fish. Didn't light my fire cracke. Bookseller Inventory # 0001532

Item Description: Printed for John Bowles & Son, at the Black Horse in Cornhill, T. Bowles in St. Pauls Church Yard, Robt. Sayer at the Golden Buck in Fleet Street. J. Boydell, London, 1760. Engraving, printed on fine laid paper. Very good condition. A fine image of the verdant country estate of General Campbell, Baron Sundridge of Coombank. Born in Maidstone in 1735, William Woollett was one of the most renowned landscape engravers of his time and the first English engraver to achieve popular success in continental Europe. His artistic aptitude became apparent at an early age, and he was sent to London to train at St. Martin's Lane Academy and apprentice with the engraver and printseller John Tinney. Woollett began his career with a series of topographical views, but first truly distinguished himself as skilled engraver with the publication of his print of Richard Wilson's Destruction of the Children of Niobe . His copious plates after artists such as Stubbs, Vernet, and Claude proved so popular, that many of them were copied by engravers on the Continent. Beginning in 1766, he became an active member of the Society of Artists, where he served in a variety of positions. Although he specialized in landscapes, Woollett also engraved a number of marine and historical scenes including the print for which he is most famous, Death of General Wolfe after Benjamin West, and for which he was received the honorable title of Historical Engraver to His Majesty. Combe Bank was built for General Campbell by Roger Morris. Campbell later gave the house to his son, who had it re-modelled by Robert Adam. Cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

Item Description: Poetry Society, London. Soft cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. A collection of Poetry Reviews from what is now seen as its most radical period of publication, including 8 issues of the periodical in smaller book format (207 x 136mm) with artists¿ illustrations on the cover, 4 extremely rare issues in larger magazine format (290 x 205mm) (also with artist designed covers), 1 ephemeral poster and 1 stapled newsletter. As the editor¿s note explains in Vol. 66: ¿With this issue, the fifteenth under the present editor, Poetry Review assumes a new format which it is hoped will better accommodate the spatial forms of the wide variety of poems in today¿s poetry scene¿. As such, the formal inventiveness of the new poetry required a more open, larger format of increased possibilities. In 1971, the British beat poet and critic Eric Mottram took over the editorial helm at Poetry Review and subsequently helped publish 20 issues over 6 years. During this period, Bob Cobbing and other small press avant-garde poets of the underground scene, took over the Poetry Society¿s building in Earls Court and breathed life into the periodical, as the concrete, visual and experimental poetry synonymous with the British Poetry Revival replaced modernist and lyric. During this period, and under the influence of Mottram (an associate of Burroughs and Ginsberg), the periodical was also notable for its publishing of American poets. For the patriotic Review, Mottram¿s approach to the Americans eventually resulted in his downfall. The saga is documented in the 2006 publication: Peter Barry, Poetry Wars: British Poetry of the 1970s and the Battle of Earls Court, Salt, 2006.

Item Description: Arthur Lange Inc, NY, 1926. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. No Jacket. Hardcover - Inscribed by Arthur Lange to "Harvey P Fisher - Violinist 1926" / includes calling card from Miss Ida Forsyne (tel Morningside 3806) VERY clean, no marks, clean inside, very clean bright burgundy boards with gilt lettering, unsunned spine no dj Arthur Lange (April 16, 1889 - December 7, 1956) was a United States bandleader and Tin Pan Alley composer of popular music. He composed music for over 120 films, including Grand Canary and Woman on the Run. Lange shared an Oscar nomination with Hugo Friedhofer for the film The Woman in the Window. All in all he was nominated four times for Oscars but did not win any. During the first half of the 1920s Lange recorded copiously for Cameo Records. His 1923 orchestra, which also played the Cinderella Ballroom on Broadway and which included "hot" trumpeters Earl Oliver and Tommy Gott, was at the end of that year bought by young well-to-do bandleader Roger Wolfe Kahn, and it is not known whether the recordings Lange made after this point and up to 1926 were still made by these musicians (Kahn himself didn't start recording under his own name for Victor Records until March 1925) or by another group. His 1928 recordings for Pathé Records were however almost certainly made by another unknown personnel. Though Lange himself played both piano and banjo he seems (with the exception of a recording by his "Lange trio" in 1922) to have only acted as conductor and arranger on his band recording dates. Lange was a prolific arranger of dance band orchestrations during the 1920s. His "stock" orchestrations were in use by many bands of the day. Lange wrote "Arranging for the Modern Dance Orchestra" which was the definitive work of its day (published Robbins Music, 1926). Ida Forsyne - (" Topsy ") - Living over a saloon, Ida's Mother was a maid and her father disappeared when she was two years old. Her mother was not very supportive of her dancing and didn't think she could dance but dancing she did, even if only for pennies in front of a candy store. By the time she turned ten, she was working as a Pick (Pickaninny) at the Chicago Worlds Fair doing the Cakewalk. While living over the saloon she would get to sneak in and watch some of the shows, here she met a "sportin' house" pianist named Willie Mason who showed Ida her first real dance steps. Sneaking into many shows around town and watching the rehearsals she was able to learn more dancing and was becoming a experienced hustler. By the time Ida was fourteen she ran away from home by joining a Tab Show called the Black Bostonians which had her singing a song and doing an eccentric Legomania style Buck Dance routine. The show went broke in Montana and Ida hand to sing in the streets for money for a ticket home. Ida was basically as self trained Vernacular dancer who would portray a colored "Topsy" girl character who would sing and dance. She wore a bandana, created dances such as her Sack Dance and even got the chorus lines to Blacken' Up (Blackface) during her performances. She became a real success. However her biggest success would be when she created her Russian Dance routines complete with Russian costumes made in St. Petersburg, Russia, Boots and had her own music scored for her as well. She did these Russian dances abroad for many years and later the states. In America, the Russian dance was usually performed with what they called 'Kazotsky's', where the dancer squats down, crosses their arms across their chest and kicks their legs out alternately. Altho this was an already established Hungarian dance called Czardas and not Russian, most Americans would not know the difference and still today see it as Russian dancing. Ida Forsyne was one of the first American woman to do these 'Kazotsky's' at the end of her performance in her Moscow program. These "Kazotsky's where done long before her but after this one performance, and her improvisations of it, she would be hailed (incorrectly) as the greatest Russian dancer of all time as she trave.
