The front cover is decorated with a blue paper onlay border design blocked in gilt with miniature illustrations including Puss-in-Boots, a frog with an umbrella, a mermaid, a witch, a youth holding up a giant's decapitated head, a boy with a lyre and birds emerging from a pie. The spine is blocked in gilt with similar illustrative elements & is imprinted "Little Folks Library" at the tail. The rear cover is blocked in blind with the publisher's monogrammatic device. The extremities are bumped & lightly rubbed with some light fraying at the corners. [2] leaves, viii & 367 pages, including 180 full- page engraved illustrations in black & white, plus a colophon. Also with a frontispiece & an extra engraved title page. The flyleaf is lacking & 1 signature is slightly pulled. A very good, very attractive copy.

Deducing from other copies held in libraries, there appear to be two editions, or issues, of this book with the copy at hand being a first edition. According to Chester Topps' "Victorian Yellowbacks & Paperbacks, 1849-1905", Vol. IV, 1999, p. xii, the imprint of the publisher from 1868 to 1871 was Scribner, Welford & Co. New York and from 1872 to 1877 it was Scribner, Welford & Armstrong, New York. Later editions of this book include Armstrong in the imprint whereas this edition lists "Scribner, Welford & Co.". Also, the second edition sometimes has a hand-colored frontispiece and includes four pages of publisher's ads, which are not present here.

The contents consist of stories, each one page long with an illustration on the facing page. The frontispiece is signed with John Tenniel's initials. Among the other illustrators are Walter Crane, Myles Birket Foster, Charles Joseph Staniland, Alfred W. Cooper and William Small. The engravers were Dalziell Brothers, whose device appears on the verso of the title page and on the colophon.

The book is rare. The combined holdings of both editions in WorldCat and COPAC are only seven copies. Very good .

(BYRON, LORD GEORGE GORDON; MOORE, THOMAS; AND PORTER, ANN MARIA).
The Ladies' Literary Cabinet, Being a Repository of Miscellaneous Literary Productions, Both Original and Selected, in Prose and Verse. New Series - Vol. IV. (Volume 4, Issues Nos. 1 Through 26 Bound in One Volume).
New York: Published by Nathaniel Smith, No. 15 Cedar-Street, 1821. 1821. - Quarto, 11 inches high by 8-1/2 inches wide. Marbled boards backed with a black calf spine. The covers are heavily rubbed with sections of the marbled paper lacking from the boards. Large portions of the spine have perished. [2] leaves, pages 1 through 96, and [89] through 208 (pages 89 though 96 are repeated as issue number 12 for July 28, 1821 was bound in twice). The pages are darkened with scattered foxing and staining throughout and several tears, although without loss of text. Good. Of significance is a review of Lord Byron's "Marino Faliero" with lengthy quotations from the poem, a tragedy in blank verse, which was published that same year. Inspired by his discovery that the portrait of Faliero had been blacked out from the display of portraits of the Doges at the Palazzo Ducale in Venice, Byron set out to pen this tragedy in five acts based on the life of Venice's 14th century Doge Marino Faliero. Having been recently offended by the newly elected Doge, Michel Steno, one of Venice's chief officers of state penned an indecent remark about Feliero's wife on the Doge's throne. Although Steno was tried and convicted by the Council of Forty, Faliero was outraged that the sentence was but a month's imprisonment. Believing the constitution of Venice to be at fault, the Doge sought revenge upon his enemies by joining in a conspiracy to overthrow Venice's constitution. The conspiracy was discovered and Faliero was sentenced to death and executed. The Ladies' Literary Cabinet also includes a review of Ann Maria Porter's "Village of Mariendorpt" with a synopsis and extensive quotes from the historical novel set in Bavaria near the end of the Thirty Years War. Two pages of music titled "The Maid of Marlivale written by T. Moore" engraved on pages 102 & 103, is a composition with lyrics from Thomas Moore's poem and music attributed to either John Stevenson or, as per a copy in the Library of Congress, to John Wall Callcott. RARE. Good .

[PERLEY, MARTIN VAN BUREN (1835-1926); AND LORD, NATHAN (1793-1870)].
Laws of Dartmouth College.
Hanover, New Hampshire: Dartmouth Press, 1855. 1855. - Octavo, 8-5/8 inches high by 5-3/8 inches wide. Disbound pamphlet, apparently removed from a larger collection of bound pamphlets as attested to by stab marks along the left edge. [ii] & 16 pages, illustrated with an engraved frontispiece illustration of Dartmouth College by W. Watts. There is foxing throughout. Good.

A partially printed leaf bound in at the front and dated "Aug. 1859" in ink, certifies that "M.V.B. Perley is admitted a Member of Dartmouth College". Signed "N. Lord" by the College's president Nathan Lord with Perley's name penned in ink.

The U.S. Congregational clergyman and educator Nathan Lord (1793-1870) was the 6th President of Dartmouth College, serving from 1828 to 1863. A graduate of Bowdoin College and Andover Theological Seminary, he improved Dartmouth College's curriculum, raised admission levels and brought the college out of debt. His pro-slavery views were in direct contrast with those of the College's Board of Trustees and, as Civil War broke out, he came into conflict with board member Amos Tuck who was a founding member of the Republican party and close friend of Lincoln's. In 1863, Lord prevented the college from granting an honorary degree to President Lincoln and was forced to resign.

The author and editor Martin Van Buren Perley (1835-1926) was born in Ipswich, Massachusetts. He taught school in Massachusetts while studying for his degree from Dartmouth College. After a brief career as a dry goods merchandiser, he became the editor and publisher of the Gloucester "Telegram" after a fire destroyed his business. Perley was also the editor of the Gloucester "Chronicle" and a correspondent for the "Boston Globe". He published directories, farmer's almanacs as well as historical and genealogical registries, and authored the "History and Genealogy of the Perley Family" as well as "Salem Village Witchcraft - Mrs. Elizabeth Howe's Trial". Good .

Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. 24 Aprile - 4 Giugno / 1935 - XIII. (Program)
Firenze: Grafiche G. Spinelli & C. 1935. 1935. Firenze: Grafiche G. Spinelli & C. 1935. 1935. Very good. - Octavo. Program for the 1935 season of this music festival bound by an owner in three-quarters dark green calf & decorative dark green & tan boards titled in gilt on the spine, with the original printed wrappers bound in. The boards are bumped darkened around the edges with a light stain to the front board. The leather is rubbed. The spine is faded & chipped with a piece out of the head & the top half of the front joint is split. [204] unnumbered pages. Illustrated with a double-page color map of Florence, with portraits & stage designs in color and black & white & with pictorial ads. The inside wraps are lightly foxed, else the program contents are very good.

This music festival presented choral and orchestral music, operas and ballets. Among the works presented in the 1935 season were Rameau's "Castor and Pollux"; Rossini's "Mose"; the ballet "Dafni e Chloe" starring Lorcia and Lifar, with choreography by Fokine and scenery by Bakst; Pizzetti's "Orseolo", Verdi's "Masked Ball" and his "Requiem" with Pinza, Caniglia and Stignani; Mozart's "Il Ratto dal Serraglio" and his "Requiem"; Rino Alessi's play "Savonarola, directed by Jacques Copeau, with incidental music by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco; Bellini's "Norma" and Gluck's "Alceste". Conductors included Vittorio Gui, Tullio Serafin, Bruno Walter and Fernando Previtale. The program notes and synopses are printed in both Italian and English.

Mario Castelnuovo- Tedesco [1895-1968], who became a well-known composer of film music, was considered one of the most significant Italian composers of his generation and was performed by such artists as Gieseking, Heifetz, Piatigorsky and Segovia. Although he was critical of Mussolini's regime, he knew how to take advantage of the opportunities it offered and he wrote the incidental music for "Savonarola" at Mussolini's request. He was a friend both of Carlo and Nello Rosselli, the regime's principal opponents [both assassinated in 1937], and of Alessandro Pavolino, who later became a fanatical fascist leader.

On the inside front cover of the book, the owner has penned an "Operatic Diary" listing 31 operas attended, with theatres, dates, composers and in some cases conductors.

Rare. Very good .
