3 [Dickinson, Emily] Conway, Hugh Frederick John Fargus. Called Back.

Bristol: J.W. Arrowsmith; London: Griffith, Farran, Okeden & Welsh, 1884. First edition in book form (Wolff, 1423a). Contemporary brown calf, ruled in blind, gilt lettered black leather label, and marbled paper boards, all edges and endpapers marbled, 194 pp.; (a)2, B-N8, O2; C-1 is integral - in some copies C-1 is a cancel. The C-1 text in this copy is identical to the text of the cancel. Leaves (a)1 and O2 are blank, some copies have a leaf of ads in the front and the back. This was a popular mystery/fantasy/romance which had sold 352,000 copies by 1887, and was immediately translated into six European languages (Charles Kent in DNB). This book is interesting today to literary historians studying Emily Dickinson. Miss Dickinson wrote to her cousins, Louise and Fanny Norcross, in a January, 1885 letter: "A friend sent me 'Called Back'. It is a haunting story, and...greatly impressive to me." (Letters…, 1894, v.2, p.299). The last letter she is believed to have written, to the same cousins, contained just four words: "Little Cousins, - Called back" (undated, just before the 15th May, 1886, which was the day she died). Dickinson titled few of her poems; when Mabel Loomis Todd published Poems in 1891 she gave the title "Called Back" to the early poem beginning "Just lost, when I was saved...". Dickinson's niece, Martha Dickinson Bianchi, replaced the original tombstone, which simply said "E.D.D.", with another that "...included Dickinson's birth and death dates as well as the phrase 'Called Back'" (Dickinson Museum website, Amherst). Some wear to the leather and boards. A Very Good copy.

4 [Dickinson, Emily] Anonymous. Memoir of Rev. Austin Dickinson, A.M.

No place, no publisher, no date - perhaps shortly after his death in 1849. Presumed first separate edition. Original plain wrappers, caption title, pp. 1-12. "This memoir was prepared for insertion in the "Biographical Notices" of the class, graduated at Dartmouth College in 1813." Though they were apparently not directly related, Rev. Dickinson worked in the law office of Emily Dickinson's grandfather. He was important in the founding and support of Amherst College, as was Emily's father, Edward, who named his son after him. Light damp-stain to top 25%, wrappers a little worn. A Very Good copy.
