Book Description: M.W. Dodd, 1867. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Handsomely bound in finely woven dark green cloth. With blind-stamped rectangular rules and a circular floral vignette at the center of the front and rear boards. With bright gilt lettering and an elegant gilt design on the spine. The front and rear hinges are very good, the front hinge being a tad tender. The book exhibits a patina of time, given its 1867 vintage, and there is occasional foxing throughout, but generally in the upper and side margins, not affecting the text. In very delicate script in ink, a previous owner has written: "To Linnie from Harry." on the second free front endpaper. With charming rectangular artistic vignettes above each of the chapter headings. A small 8vo. with two (2) textural plates present in addition to the frontispiece and the extra pictorial title page, for a total of 4 illustrated plates. The front boards have a few small discolorations and a touch of bubbling to the green cloth at the top of the right-hand corner. There is light fraying to the top and bottom of the spine ends and wear at the corners. Otherwise, a rather handsome and very collectible copy of this cornerstone of children's literature. Exceedingly rare, Jacob Blanck notes having seen only two copies. Only one copy of this title has appeared at auction over the last 35 years, selling once in 1976 for $2,500 and selling a second time in 1992 for $6,500.00. The Publisher's address is given as 506 Broadway on the pictorial title page and 605 Broadway on the printed title. Martha Finley is best known for her Elsie Dinsmore series, melodramatic and sentimental fiction focusing on Elsie's trials and the solace offered her by her religious beliefs. Originally written under the pseudonym "Martha Farquharson" (Gaelic for "Finley"), the series lasted for 28 volumes, published over a period of 38 years. Much has been written about the series, discussing everything from its tear-soaked heroine and her relationship with her father to its enduring popularity during the 19th century. In the early 1900s, Edward Stratemeyer, inspired by the remarkable lifespan of the Elsie series, hit upon the idea of books written by ghostwriters, which allowed him to churn out story upon story to the delight of his readership. It was under his stewardship that Nancy Drew, the Bobbsey Twins, and the Hardy Boys appeared. (Peter Parley to Penrod, p. 26.) First Edition with matching dates of 1867 on the title and copyright pages.With "The New York Printing Company, 81, 83, and 85 Centre Street, New York" at the bottom of the copyright page.

Book Description: Taylor Francis Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 3rd Revised edition. 246 x 174 mm. Brand New Book. The Twentieth-Century Performance Reader has been the key introductory text to all types of performance for over fifteen years. Extracts from over fifty practitioners, critics and theorists from the fields of dance, drama, music, theatre and live art form an essential sourcebook for students, researchers and practitioners. This carefully revised third edition offers focus on contributions from the world of music, and also privileges the voices of practitioners themselves ahead of more theoretical writing. A bestseller since its original publication in 1996, this new edition has been expanded to include contributions from: Bobby Baker; Joseph Beuys; Rustom Bharucha; Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker; Hanns Eisler; Karen Finley; Philip Glass; Guillermo Gomez-Pena; Matthew Goulish; Martha Graham; Wassily Kandinsky; Jacques Lecoq; Hans-Thies Lehmann; George Maciunas; Ariane Mnouchkine; Meredith Monk; Lloyd Newson; Carolee Schneemann; Gertrude Stein; Bill Viola. Each extract is fully supplemented by a contextual summary, a biography of the writer, and suggestions for further reading. The volume s alphabetical structure invites the reader to compare and cross-reference major writings on all types of performance outside of the constraints and simplifications of genre, encouraging cross-disciplinary understandings. All who engage with live, innovative performance, and the interplay of radical ideas, will find this collection invaluable. Bookseller Inventory # AAU9780415696647
