2 Clark, George Rogers; Milo Milton Quaife (ed) The Conquest of The Illinois
Chicago The Lakeside Press / R. R. Donnelley & Sons 1920 First Edition Thus. First Printing Hard Cover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Publisher's full green cloth, gilt lettering on spine, gilt border and publisher's medallion, gilt, on cover, t.e.g., fore-edge deckle. Illustrated with Tissue-Protected engraved portrait frontispiece. This is a reprint of the original journal of George Rogers Clark. Clark (1752-1818) was a surveyor, soldier, and militia officer from Virginia and the highest ranking American military officer on the northwestern frontier during the American Revolutionary War. He served as leader of the Kentucky (then part of Virginia) militia throughout much of the war. Clark is best known for his celebrated captures of Kaskaskia (1778) and Vincennes (1779) during the Illinois Campaign, which greatly weakened British influence in the Northwest Territory. Because the British ceded the entire Northwest Territory to the United States in the 1783 Treaty of Paris, Clark has often been hailed as the "Conqueror of the Old Northwest". Clark's military achievements all came before his 30th birthday. Afterwards he led militia in the opening engagements of the Northwest Indian War, but was accused of being drunk on duty. Despite his demand for a formal investigation into the accusations, he was disgraced and forced to resign. He left Kentucky to live on the Indiana frontier. Never fully reimbursed by Virginia for his wartime expenditures, Clark spent the final decades of his life evading creditors, and living in increasing poverty and obscurity. He was involved in two failed conspiracies to open the Spanish-controlled Mississippi River to American traffic. After suffering a stroke and the loss of his leg, Clark was aided in his final years by family members, including his younger brother William, one of the leaders of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Clark died of a stroke on February 13, 1818.. Head and heel of spine and corners have very slight light shelf-wear, gilt on spine and top edge is slightly dulled, else pristine, unmarked, tight, square and clean. VERY GOOD+. .

10 Lilly, Joseph (ed) A Collection of Seventy-Nine Black-Letter Ballads and Broadsides Printed in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth between the Years 1559 and 1597
London Joseph Lilly 1867 First Printing Hard Cover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Original publisher's brown cloth, gilt lettering on spine, blind-stamped decorative front and rear panels, brown endpapers, fore and bottom edges deckle. Accompanied with an Introduction and Illustrative Notes. Four additional items are included with the book: (1) An autograph letter, signed, written on both sides of a sheet, from the publisher, Joseph Lilly, dated August 21, 1867, and sent from Covent Garden, explaining how he acquired the rights to the current book, as follows: "Dear Sir, I gave L750 for the folio volume of the Old Ballads & Broadsides, at the sale of the library of George Daniel Esq, at "Sotheby's" Auction Rooms, in July 1864. I do not know the date of Mr. Daniel's birth. He was about 75 years old at the time of his death. I think he was born in Newgate [or ?]. I think his father (or mother's) family was in the worsted trade. If I can get a portrait of him I will send it to you. Yours truly (signed) Joseph Lilly." (2) Another note is tipped-in to the front endpaper, in a different hand, as follows: "George Daniels Ballads | With autograph note of Mr. Lilly the publisher stating that he gave upwards of L700 for the original. [sic] and Scarce portrait, + short Memoir of Mr. Daniel __ - Only a comparative few copies printed." (3) Also laid-in is the portrait of George Daniel referred to in Mr. Lilly's note, and (4) a short, somewhat poetic memoir of him, curiously captioned "Memoir of D._ _G." The note on the endpaper describes the portrait and memoir as scarce as there were only a few copies printed. NB: A large number of the 19th Century acting editions are promoted as containing "remarks by D. _ _G" (i.e. George Daniel). These remarks are usually two to three pages in length and contain relatively non-critical comments about the play and its production. These prefaces consist primarily of a synopsis of the play, but occasionally they contain interesting anecdotes that shed some light on both the cultural and theatrical landscape of his time. Fortunately, in a few of the scripts the critic's nom de plume is forgotten, and he is identified as George Daniel (1789-1864). He was a descendant of a Huguenot family that settled in England in the 17th century. Even as a young man he was a prolific writer, mostly of poetry, but at the age of 18 he completed Dick Distich, a novel in three volumes. Yet it would be as a poet that Daniel was to gain his first taste of pseudonymous fame, as "P___P___, Poet Laureat." P___ P___, Poet Laureat's first poem was a "sprightly squib in verse" entitled "R_y_l Stripes; or a Kick from Yar_th to Wa_s; with the particulars of an Expedition to Oat_ds and the Sprained Ancle." It was an account of the horse-whipping given to the prince regent by Lord Yarmouth for "making improper advances" to his mother-in-law. The poem was immediately and simultaneously suppressed and highly popular. Daniel's original manuscript is kept in the British Museum. Broadly satirical pieces, such as the poem described above, brought Daniel into the company of "a number of literary friends," most notably Charles Lamb and Robert Bloomfield. At the same time his exposure to the theatrical milieu of London began to grow, and he befriended some of the greatest actors of the time. The value that the actor John Kemble placed on his friendship was demostrated by a "white satin" bill of fare the actor presented to Daniel in the green-room at Covent Garden. This occurred on the night of Kemble's final performance there on June 23, 1817. This memento is also the property of the British Museum. In 1818, Daniel made his debut as a playwright with a piece entitiled "Doctor Bolus." It was successfully presented at the English Opera House and at the Lyceum. He followed that one year later with "The Disagreeable Surprise" and in 1833, with "Sworn at Highgate." Yet it seems that George Daniel's greatest contribution to the arts of 19th century London is in neither his poetry or his plays, but rather as an editor and book collector. Between 1823 and 1831, thirty-nine volumes of "British Theatre, with Remarks Biographical and Critical, printed from the Acting Copies as performed at the Theatres Royal London" were published by John Cumberland, and edited by George Daniel. Fourteen more volumes were added by 1832. Later, he also edited similar publications of acting editions for T.H.Lacy and Davison. The University of Washington a collection of many acting editions with remarks by Daniel, from a variety of publishers. Bates refers to Daniel as a book collector, one whose estate brought great wealth to his descendants when it was sold. His collection included a first folio of Shakespeare, David Garrick's cane, a cassolette, or carved casket, made out of the mulberry-tree from Shakespeare's garden, as well as many other books and artifacts from the Elizabethan age. For ten days, starting on July 24, 1864, his entire collection was sold at auction. His heirs received 15,865 pounds and 12 shillings. One of his greatest friends, it seems, was the artist Robert Cruikshank, with whom he collaborated on many of the acting editions, as well as on other publications. Daniel's last work was called "Love's Last Labour Not Lost," which contained recollections of both Charles Lamb and Cruikshank. " [Dennis Barnett, University of Washington].

THE GIRL'S OWN ANNUAL / VOLUME 9 / 1887-1888, Peters, Charles (editor)
17 Peters, Charles (editor) THE GIRL'S OWN ANNUAL / VOLUME 9 / 1887-1888
London The Religious Tract Society 1888 First Edition Thus. 1 Hard Cover Very Good with no dust jacket 
A collection of all of the issues of Girl's Own Paper published between October 1, 1887 and September 30, 1888. Quarto. Bound in publisher's full green cloth, beveled boards, gilt lettering and elaborate decoration on spine and cover. Profusely illustrated with chromolithographed (color) frontispiece and title page, numerous B&W steel engravings (many full page), as well as hundreds of illustrations in text. Cracked front inner hinge with tape repair, moderate spotting, boards only lightly worn with minor spotting, else a clean and bright copy. VERY GOOD. Girl's Own Paper was a British story paper catering for girls and young women, published from 1880 until 1956. The G.O.P. was an important and positive influence on generations of girls and women, and a vital outlet for women's writing and ideas, for more than three-quarters of a century."The first weekly number of the Girls Own Paper appeared on January 3rd. 1880, price One Penny. For her penny the Victorian young lady received 16 quarto three-column pages, with many steel engravings. The Editor had provided the first serial parts of two long stories; a short story; three poems; an article on the 'Girlhood of Queen Victoria' an article on 'Fashionable Costumes of Long Ago'; articles on needlework and cookery, 'Useful Hints', and a Competition which asked girls to write 'an essay on the life of any one famous English woman, born in the present century'. The magazine was published from the "Leisure Hour" office of the Religious Tract Society, at 56 Paternoster Row, London EC, near to St. Paul's Cathedral. The GOP moved in 1902 to a more professional publishing address, "The Girl's Own Paper" Office, 4 Bouverie Street, in the Fleet Street area of London. The imprint 'Lutterworth Press' was used from 1939."The GOP formula, a mix of stories and educational and improving articles, with 'Answers to Correspondents' and occasional colored plates, poetry and music, was a great success. Quarto sized weekly magazines continued, but the magazine was also made available bound into monthly parts; each monthly contained the weekly magazines from the previous month. "The 'GIRLS OWN ANNUAL' was published each year, ready for the Christmas market. Each Annual included the material from the previous year's weeklies, from October to September. Complete bound Annuals were on sale, but many readers chose to accumulate their own weekly or monthly GOPs, and then have them bound privately, using either the specially printed boards which could be obtained from the GOP office, or their own chosen half-calf or leather, perhaps to fit in with the general appearance of their fathers' libraries. Annuals are therefore to be found with a wide variety of bindings, many of them very handsome. "In the early years, there were summer and Christmas Extras with seasonal titles, such as 'Christmas Carillon'; 'Garden of Gillyflowers'; 'Honied Hours'; they contained stories, pictures and poems appropriate to the season."'The Editor' appears anonymously in the first weekly magazine, offering a two-guinea prize for the essay competition - a significant sum in 1880. He was in fact Mr. Charles Peters, and he remained with the paper for 28 years, dying in office in December 1907. He had definite ideas for the GOP: he used it 'to foster and develop that which was highest and noblest in the girlhood and womanhood of England' - 'putting the best things first, and banishing the worthless from his pages.' He managed to do this without making his magazine boring, or preachy, or unpopular; perhaps some modern editors might pause for a moment and wonder how he did it! At the time of his death, the magazine was in excellent shape, in an attractive two-column format with photographic and half-tone illustrations, and with the original mix of fiction and information broadly unchanged." This description of the Girl's Own Paper is taken directly from A Short History of the G.O.P. by E. Honor Ward and can be found online at www.mth.uea.ac.uk/~h720/GOP/history.shtml and is Honor Ward.. The volume has been professionally refurbished with new endpapers, corners lightly worn, unmarked, mild sporadic foxing, else near fine. VERY GOOD. . 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. 848, 64 pp
