  • Publisher: London: Printed for Robert Harford, 1680.
  • Format: Hardcover
[48], 165, [3] pp. Recent full-leather. Very Good. First Edition. Wing C6510. Written while Robert Couch was "Sometimes Practitioner in Physick and Chyrurgery, at Boston in New-England," this is the first medical book composed in the British colonies. In 1663 Couch emigrated from England. Upon arrival in Boston he established himself as a physician and surgeon and spent most of his remaining life in Boston, with the exception of two years (1667-1669) in Portsmouth (New Hampshire), and a period in the late 1670s when he resided in Virginia and where he died prior to 1680. His manuscript was acquired by Francis Willis of Ware River, Virginia, who sent it to the London chemist Christopher Pack, who arranged for its publication with his own additions, and with a dedication of the work to Willis. Couch's book was not published in the colonies, but his manuscript was composed in the colonies, and then published posthumously in England. There are very few 17th century American medical publications. Those published in the colonies include the following. Austin, Early American Medical Imprints, records three: (1) Thomas Vincent's 31-page pamphlet on the London fire and plague (Cambridge 1668; Austin 1977); (2) Thomas Thacher's broadside on small pox (Boston 1678; Austin 1881); and (3) John Oliver's 129-page book for pregnant women (Boston 1694; Austin 1433). Guerra, American Medical Bibliography [a-1 through a-12], records two printings of Vincent's pamphlet (1667, 1668); Thacher's broadside; two variant printings of a religious pamphlet by Allen James (1679); four works by Cotton Mather (1689, 1692, 1696, 1698); Oliver's book; and two printings of legislation in the Province of Massachusetts-Bay relating to health matters (1694, 1699). New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. I, p. 601. OCLC locates copies of Couch's book in these US libraries: American Antiquarian Society, Harvard, Huntington Library, National Library of Medicine, New York Academy of Medicine, Virginia. In the UK, there are copies in Aberdeen, British Library, Sion College, Wellcome Library.

"Barrie was a Scottish playwright and novelist. The son of a weaver, Barrie studied at the University of Edinburgh. He took up journalism, worked for a Nottingham newspaper, and contributed to various London journals before moving to London in 1885. The publication of "The Little Minister" (1891) established his reputation as a novelist. During the next 10 years Barrie continued writing novels, but gradually his interest turned toward the theater. From 1930 until his death he was chancellor of the University of Edinburgh." [Pub. Info] Among first novels that established him as a writer. 1ST THUS.

  • Format: Hardcover
3 volumes. First edition, with the 16 pages of ads dated "5 G.9.91." WITH MANUSCRIPT LETTER TIPPED IN SIGNED AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR IN 1891. With half-titles as called for and extra illustrated with a tipped on half-tone photograph of the author on the blank opposite the tipped in manuscript letter. 8vo, publisher's original brown cloth lettered in gilt on spines. Now housed in a very handsome custom slipcase with a triple-rounded brown morocco back with raised bands, gilt lettered and tooled. 232, ads; 239; 232 pp. A handsome set, with a manuscript letter in fine condition. The text blocks are very clean and fresh and are completely free of foxing or browning, everything tight and firm, one upper hinge very lightly shaken, the scarce original cloth with a little general mellowing and bumping at the tips. A SCARCE TITLE FROM THE AUTHOR OF PETER PAN, especially so in original cloth. THIS COPY WITH A CONTEMPORARY SIGNED AND DATED LETTER IN THE AUTHOR'S HAND. THE LITTLE MINISTER is set in Thrums, a Scottish weaving village based on BarrieÂ?s birthplace, and concerns Gavin Dishart, a young impoverished minister with his first congregation. The weavers he serves soon riot in protest against reductions in their wages and harsh working conditions. It was BarrieÂ?s first work to achieve a high level of success and largely established his reputation. It is a sentimental novel that Barrie would also later produce on stage, again successfully. The work was written over 15 years prior to the introduction of his most famous character, Peter Pan.

8 x 5 1/2", 32pp. Blue wrappers, printed title label on front cover, some fading of spine, cover edges, cellophane tape marks on lower inner covers, inscribed blank front flyleaf shows some separation from inner front cover. Bookplate of Cleveland, Ohio based publisher (World Publishing) & book collector & author Ben D. Zevin. An address delivered at the Newberry Library, Chicago; November 5th, 1948 before the Society of Typographic Arts on the occasion of the opening of an exhibition of the author's works. Plus a copy of a 9 x 12" (4)pp. printed & illustrated insert "2 Letters In Praise of Progress In the Typographic and the Social Arts" (this has been folded twice to be inserted into the book). With an ALS laid in. Written in a fine italic hand by calligraphic master & English born book illustrator & designer Cleland. On a sheet of 8 1/2 X 11" stationary with T. M. Cleland's address printed at the top (T. M. Cleland R.F.D. 2 Danbury, Conn.). ALS has a 2 1/2" round rubber stamp "Received Jan 28 1952 9:00" partially obscuring the printed address but not any of the calligraphy; folded twice for insertion into the book, small cellophane tape stain in lower right corner, small staple holes near upper left corner. (Text): "January 25, 1952 Dear Mr. Zevin: It was indeed good of you to write me the fine letter I have received from you today, and I am in consequence more than ever glad that I obeyed my impulse to write to Mr. [William] Targ as I did about the excellence of your edition of my friend Paul Bennett's book. Your letter is not only gratifying. but illuminating in that I now understand better than I did why it is possible for a large and consequential publishing house to undertake a monumental project like the Bruce Rogers [World] Bible and also turn out a trade book which is exemplary in its category. The reason lies, of course, in the personal interest and taste of the head of the concern [Zevin]. Your works are sufficient evidence that you are in accord with my views of what is quaintly called 'modernism' in the graphic arts; but I ^ am elated to know that you approve my expression of them as well. Since you like 'Harsh Words' I am sending herewith a more recent printed manifestation of my malevolence on this subject which-if you have not seen it-I hope may also entertain you and be an added support to your own convictions. I sent a copy to Mr. Targ who tells me ^ he had not seen it before; so I have hope you have not. I enclose another item of no importance but which may amuse you. It is printed in what was intended for a travesty on the 'new' typography, but the most amusing thing about it is that many of the 'avant garde' boys took it seriously and thought it good design! Its always unsafe to burlesque a burlesque. Sincerly TMCleland Mr. B.D. Zevin The World Publishing Company Cleveland, Ohio" ALS overall in fine condition. The copy of "Progress" is a presentation copy with an italic inscription & signature at top of front flyleaf: "With kind regard and congratulation to B. D. Zevin TM Cleland January 1952". The humorous insert refered to is the text of 2 letters sent to Donald S. Klopfer, then president of The American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) dated March 15, 1950 & May 1, 1950. It reproduces the 1950 Certificate of Excellence Printing for Commerce Exhibition awarded to Cleland by AIGA & also a repro. of "[.] a genuine hand-wrought leather medal in recognition of the great strides it [AIGA] had made in demolishing the outworn standards of excellence which have impeded the triumphal march of the typographic arts towards new horizons [.]" designed by Cleland. This humorous brochure it quite scarce: "[.] Every detail of this superb example of the printing art [an AIGA exhibition catalogue] shows that it has been carefully planned upon the biblical precept that it is better to give than to receive-i.e., better to give pains than to take pains."

Paris, 1887. Original photograph, carte de visite, albumen print, 9,5 x 6,5 cm. Ken, A., photographe, Boulevard Monmartre 10, Paris - - - - - - - Mozaffar ad-Din Shah QajarNasser al-Din Shah Qajar (16 July 1831 - 1 May 1896) was the King of Iran from 17 September 1848 to 1 May 1896 when he was assassinated. He was the son of Mohammad Shah Qajar and Malek Jahan Khanom, Mahd-e Olia and the third longest reigning monarch king in Iranian history after Shapur II of the Sassanid Dynasty and Tahmasp I of the Safavid Dynasty. He had sovereign power for close to 50 years and was also the first Persian monarch to ever write and publish his diaries. - Naser al-Din was in Tabriz when he heard of his father's death in 1848, and he ascended to the Peacock Throne with the help of Amir Kabir. - Naser al-Din had early reformist tendencies, but was dictatorial in his style of government. With his sanction, some Babis were killed after an attempt on his life. This treatment continued under his Prime Minister Amir Kabir, who even ordered the execution of The Báb - regarded as a Manifestation of God to Bábí's and Bahá'ís, and to historians as the founder of the Bábí religion. - Unable to regain territory lost to Russia in the early 19th century, Na?er al-Din sought compensation by seizing Herat, Afghanistan, in 1856. Great Britain regarded the move as a threat to British India and declared war on Iran, forcing the return of Herat as well as Iranian recognition of the kingdom of Afghanistan. - Naser al-Din was the first modern Iranian monarch to visit Europe in 1873 and then again in 1878 (when he saw a Royal Navy Fleet Review), and finally in 1889 and was reportedly amazed with the technology he saw there. During his visit to the United Kingdom in 1873, Naser al-Din Shah was appointed by Queen Victoria a Knight of the Order of the Garter, the highest English order of chivalry. He was the first Iranian monarch to be so honoured. His travel diary of his 1873 trip has been published in several languages as Persian, German, French and Dutch. - During his visit, Naser al-Din met with British Jewish leaders, including Sir Moses Montefiore. At that time, the Persian king suggested that the Jews buy land and establish a state for the Jewish people. - In 1890 Naser al-Din met British Gerald Talbot and signed a contract with him giving him the ownership of the Iranian tobacco industry, but he later was forced to cancel the contract after Ayatollah Mirza Hassan Shirazi issued a Fatwa that made farming, trading and consuming tobacco haram (forbidden). It even affected the Shah's personal life as his wives did not allow him to smoke. - This was not the end of Naser al-Din's attempts to give advantages to Europe; he later gave the ownership of Iranian customs incomes to Paul Julius Reuter. - Naser al-Din was effective in introducing several different western influences to Iran. He curbed the secular power of the clergy, introduced telegraph and postal services, built roads, opened the first school offering education along Western lines, and launched Iran's first newspaper. He was the first Iranian to be photographed and was a patron of photography who had himself photographed hundreds of times. His final prime minister was Ali Asghar Khan, who after the shah's assassination aided in securing the transfer of the throne to Mozaffar al-Din. - The Shah, on his European tour, in the Royal Albert Hall, London. Seated between the Princess of Wales and her sister, the Tsesarevna of Russia. - In the later years of his rule, however, Naser al-Din steadfastly refused to deal with the growing pressures for reforms. He also granted a series of concessionary rights to foreigners in return for large payments that went into his own pockets. In 1872 popular pressure forced him to withdraw one concession involving permission to construct such complexes as railways and irrigation works throughout Iran. In 1890 he made an even greater error in granting a 50-year concession on the purchase, sale, and processing of all tobacco in the country, which led to a national boycott of tobacco and the withdrawal of the concession. This last incident is considered by many authorities to be the origin of modern Iranian nationalism. - Naser al-Din was assassinated by Mirza Reza Kermani, a follower of Jamal al-Din al-Afghani, when he was visiting and praying in the shrine of Shah-Abdol-Azim. It is said that the revolver used to assassinate him was old and rusty, and had he worn a thicker overcoat, or been shot from a longer range, he would have survived the attempt on his life.[5] Shortly before his death he is reported to have said "I will rule you differently if I survive!" Naser al-Din Shah's assassin was prosecuted by the Defence Minister Nazm ol Doleh. - Naser al-Din was buried in the Shah-Abdol-Azim Cemetery, in Rayy near Tehran, where he was assassinated. His one-piece marble tombstone, bearing his full effigy, is now kept in the Golestan Palace Museum in Tehran and is renowned as a masterpiece of Qajar-era sculpture. - Naser al-Din Shah was very interested in painting and photography. He was a talented painter, and even though he had not been trained, was an expert in pen and ink drawing. Several of his pen and ink drawings survive. He was one of the first photographers in Persia and was a patron of that art. He established a photography studio in Golestan Palace. - Naser al-Din was also a poet. 200 couplets of his were recorded in the preface of Majma'ul Fusaha, a work by Reza-Qoli Khan Hedayat about poets of the Qajar period. He was interested in history and geography and had many books on these topics in his library. He also knew French and English, but was not fluent in either tongue. - Hekayat Pir Va Javan ("The Tale of the Old and the Young") was attributed to him by many; it was one of the first Persian stories written in modern European style.

A woodcut proof designed by Burne-Jones for `The Story of Cupid and Psyche` in Morris`s `The Earthly Paradise`, with red ink in lower right (`42a to face 42` - probably printer`s instructions). A print of one of 35-40 woodblocks that Morris engraved for Burne-Jones`s designs himself. Morris`s book was eventually published by the Kelmscott Press without Burne-Jones`s designs. Block size: 165 x 155 mm ; paper size: 210 x 206 mm. Printed on glassine paper. An extremely rare contemporary impression. Minor creasing in the margins. Also included this set is the first illustrated edition of `The Story of Cupid and Psyche` (London: Clover Hill, 1974) using Burne-Jones`s original designs, in 3 v. V.2 printed in the Kelmscott Troy type. Numbered 67 of 130 deluxe copies including a loose-leaf portfolio containing a set of collotype prints of the original `Cupid and Psyche` drawings and a set of proofs of the 44 wood-engravings. Housed in 2 slipcases, minor browning to edges, white marks to morocco. Minor occasional brown marks, mostly just to extremities. V.1-2 bound in dark blue morocco, with some brown mould stains to boards. T.E.G. This set also comes with a letter written by Burne-Jones to `Mr. Agnew` (presumably William Agnew, an art dealer and the owner of the Agnew & Sons gallery, to whom Burne-Jones sold his Briar Rose series). Written on Athenaeum Club paper, with the club`s blind stamped insignia. Remains of a stamp on verso. Ca. 1890. Text in English. Due to size and weight, may incur extra shipping charges.

1857. being the Substance (with Additions) of Two Lectures delivered at Manchester, July 10th and 13th, 1857. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1857. Original light olive cloth printed with a facsimile of the title page. First Edition. This title was issued as a volume in Smith Elder's "New Cheap Series," and unfortunately is in a very flimsy binding. The title page is reproduced upon the front cover, and the rear cover (like the endpapers) is occupied by ads. This is a near-fine copy, with a little bubbling of the cloth (as usual with flexible boards) but with remarkably little wear -- quite uncommon condition for this book. Wise (Ruskin) 71.
