Description:
1925. Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1925. Original black cloth lettered in red, with dust jacket. First (American) Edition -- precedence uncertain between this edition and Hutchinson's undated one published in London. This tale has action and romance, like all of Sabatini's yarns, but it is unusual in that it takes place in the New World -- specifically, in South Carolina during the American War of Independence. This volume is in fine condition; the color pictorial dust jacket (with dramatic illustration by Frank Schoonover and bearing the proper price of $2.00) is in near-fine condition with just a trace of wear at a couple of corners.

Description:
1912. [inscribed by Sabatini] A History and Some Criticisms. With a Coloured Frontispiece and Sixteen Other Illustrations in Half-tone. London: Stanley Paul & Co., n.d.[1912]. 32 pp ads, undated (but with this title listed second in the list of new announcements, and with 1910 and 1911 cited elsewhere). Original black cloth lettered in gilt, with dust jacket. First Edition of this very early historical work by Sabatini, about a decade before he hit it big with "swashbuckling" tales such as SCARAMOUCHE and CAPTAIN BLOOD. Born of an Italian father and an English mother, and educated in Portugal and Switzerland, Sabatini (1875-1950) was fluent in five languages by the time he was eighteen; he would soon have a position in the Intelligence Department of the War Office during the Great War. The Sabatini website cites a 48-page ad catalogue, but we think it is quite possible that this catalogue may precede: the only dates appearing in this catalogue are 1910 and 1911, and the inscription (below) is… Read more

Description:
1930. [complete in 7 magazine issues] A Novel. Illustrated by F.R. Gruger. In: The American Magazine. Springfield Ohio: The Crowell Publishing Company, April-October 1930 [together, seven issues]. Original color pictorial wrappers. First American Appearance of this historical romance, complete in these seven consecutive issues of The American Magazine, where the novel is illustrated by F.R. Gruger -- some full-page, some even double-page. It was in 1930 that the tale was also published in book form -- by Houghton Mifflin in the US and by Hutchinson (as THE MINION) in the UK. Condition is remarkably very good-plus (minor edge-wear, especially at the ends of the spines). The lower corner of all seven front covers bears the original mailing label -- which, amazingly, went to six different people! -- two in Illinois, plus one each in Maine, Massachusetts, North Dakota and Wisconsin. Quite a survival.

Description:
1917. London: Martin Secker, n.d.[1917]. 8 pp undated ads. Original grey paper-covered boards with brown cloth spine and printed spine label. First Edition. This was the first of Sabatini's three series of fictionalized historical events -- followed by other series in 1919 and in 1938. The thirteen episodes all have "The Night of..." titles -- specifically: "...Holyrood," "...Kirk o' Field," "...Betrayal," "...Charity," "...Massacre," "...Witchcraft," "...Gems," "...Terror," "...Nuptials," "...Stranglers," "...Hate," "...Escape" and "...Masquerade." In his Preface, Sabatini says he chose "more or less famous events... which were in themselves bizarre and resulting from the interplay of human passions." This is a near-fine copy (top edge of spine label scuffed away, barely affecting the first word of the title). This UK edition of the… Read more

Description:
1805. [inscribed by Scott] The Second Edition. London: printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, and A. Constable and Co., Edinburgh, by James Ballantyne, Edinburgh, 1805. Original blue paper-covered boards, with later (but period-style) white cloth or vellum, with printed spine label. "The Second Edition," which consisted of 1500 copies, issued later in the same year as the 750-copy first printing. This narrative poem in six cantos, with the action taking place in mid-16th-Century Scotland, is quite "early Scott": in the exhaustive Todd & Bowden bibliography, this is the 14th of 259 titles, and it would be 1814 before Scott would venture into prose fiction -- first with WAVERLEY, followed by such titles as ROB ROY, IVANHOE, KENILWORTH and QUENTIN DURWARD. Remarkably, this copy is still in the original blue paper-covered boards, the endpapers are original, and the leaves are still uncut; however the spine and label -- though period-style -- are later (but not at all recent). Condition is… Read more

Description:
1823. By the Author of "Waverley,["] ["]Peveril of the Peak," &c. Edinburgh: Printed for Archibald Constable and Co. Edinburgh; and Hurst, Robinson, and Co. London, 1823. Original textured grey-green cloth, with printed spine labels. First Edition, first issue, of Scott's well-known adventure tale sited in Fifteenth Century France, amidst the conflict between King Louis XI and the ambitious Duke of Burgundy. The Duke arranges a marriage for the young Burgundian heiress Isabelle, in order to ensure that her wealth remains within his dukedom, so the King sends a young Scot in his guard, Quentin Durward, to rescue Isabelle and convey her to safety -- a journey beset by dangers from all sides. (QUENTIN DURWARD caused quite a sensation in Paris, as this was Scott's first setting of a novel in a foreign land.) Among Scott's novels, certainly IVANHOE is the best known; however, after IVANHOE there are three others -- ROB ROY, KENILWORTH and QUENTIN DURWARD -- that would be considered by most to fall… Read more

Description:
1899. London: Grant Richards, 1899. 2 pp undated ads plus 12 pp ads dated 1899. Original purple cloth. First Edition of this largely autobiographical novel, documenting the tension between the protagonist's poetic self and his bourgeois parents. Sharp had grown up in the Scottish Highlands, where at an early stage he acquired a vein of mystic pantheism. His family kept trying to guide him along conventional paths, such as that of an attorney's clerk in Glasgow and a bank clerk in London, but he kept seeking to write poetry and to roam about the mystical forests. Ultimately (beginning a few years before SILENCE FARM was published), Sharp began writing his more poetic or romantic works under the pseudonym "Fiona Macleod"; it is widely surmised that after the turn of the century "Fiona" was no longer simply a pseudonym but rather had become a separate personality, a sexual alter-ego, within Sharp. SILENCE FARM is sought as the book that best conveys Sharp's own… Read more

Description:
1901. Text on one side of a post card imprinted with the address "10, Adelphi Terrace, W.C." Dated by hand "11th January 1901". Address on other side also written by Shaw (The Anglo-Saxon Review | 35 Great Cumberland Place W., altered by someone else to 127, Cambridge St. | Warwick Sq. S.W.) The text of this card reads as follows: I am afraid I shall not be able to manage it this quarter. There is a forest of belated work to be cut through just now. Don't depend on me. [signed] G. Bernard Shaw. This correspondence has to do with The Anglo-Saxon Review -- a short-lived "quarterly miscellany," created and edited by Lady Randolph Churchill (her son Winston served as an advisor), published by John Lane in handsome leather-bound volumes with elaborate gilt tooling. The new periodical sent out an appeal for original material to many prominent British and American authors; contributors included Henry James, Winston Churchill, George Gissing, Stephen Crane -- and… Read more

Description:
1901. Newly Revised with several prefaces and an essay on prizefighting. Also The Admirable Bashville. Or, Constancy Unrewarded. Being the novel of Cashel Byron's Profession done into a stage play in three acts and in blank verse. Chicago: Herbert S. Stone and Company, 1901. Original mottled brown cloth with pugilist in white. First Authorized American Edition of Shaw's first book, a prizefighting tale. It was first published in London in 1886, in wrappers, preceded only by a couple of Fabian tracts. Later that year, both Munro and Harper came out with American pirated editions, also in wrappers. This 1901 edition was issued simultaneously with the third English edition, so as to protect the American copyright of the dramatic version, "The Admirable Bashville" (hence its separate title page and copyright notice herein). This copy is in the primary binding, with the publisher's spine imprint all in capitals. This is an unusually clean, fine copy. Laurence A3f.

Description:
1822. [in original boards] London: Printed and Published by R. Carlile, 1822. Original drab paper-covered boards. First Published Edition, second issue -- which is to say, the sheets of William Clark's 1821 pirated edition, with the 1822 cancel title leaf of radical publisher Richard Carlile. "Queen Mab, a Philosophical Poem [in Nine Cantos] with [Seventeen] Notes" -- Shelley's first major poetic work -- was first privately-printed in 1813. Since it was a radical and revolutionary vision of a utopian world (from an atheistic viewpoint), Shelley never intended it to go beyond his friends. But in 1821 a stash of the undistributed sheets was discovered by London bookseller William Clark, and the result was an 1821 pirated edition (with the help of the infamous book pirate Thomas Moses, whose monogram also appears here on the final page of text). Shelley tried to suppress this Clark/Moses edition, but was unsuccessful because the courts ruled that "books liable to conviction for blasphemy or… Read more

First Edition, complete in seven volumes. Volumes I-V were published, anonymously, as a complete work in 1834-1838; there was much speculation as to the author might be. Southey, after starting out as a Romantic poet alongside Wordsworth and Coleridge, died in 1843 -- after which his son-in-law John Wood Warter arranged for a final two volumes to be published, in the Preface of which he named Southey as author. THE DOCTOR &c has been described as Southey's only attempt at fiction -- "a rambling miscellany packed… Read more

Description:
1942. A Novel. New York: The Viking Press, 1942. Original blue cloth lettered in silver, with dust jacket. First Edition, clothbound issue (there were also 700 copies in wrappers). This is a tale of an invading army's occupation of a small town in Northern Europe -- written (with an adaptation for the theatre in mind) at the request of the OSS, with the aim of motivating resistance movements across Europe. (The country occupied is not named, but for this book Steinbeck received from the King of Norway the King Haakon VII Freedom Cross; the book was quickly translated and published in many countries, including an illegal edition by the French Resistance.) This is a standard Viking Press copy, with no mention of other presses on the copyright page, and with the extra period on page 112. The volume is in fine condition; the pictorial dust jacket is very good-plus, with very minor wear and darkening. Goldstone & Payne A16b.

1887. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1887. 4 pp undated ads. Original printed yellow wrappers. First American Edition of this collection of tales, some of which (like "Thrawn Janet" and "Markham") are along the same vein as JEKYLL AND HYDE -­ Stevenson called such stories his "creepers." This copy is in yellow wrappers (others were bound in red cloth and offered at a higher price). This is a very good copy, with minor soil, wrinkling and edge-wear of the very delicate wrapper -- rather remarkable condition, actually, for so fragile a volume. In our experience the American edition (in cloth or especially in wrappers) is much scarcer than the English one, even on this side of the Atlantic. Beinecke 413; Princeton 33A, copy 2.

London Paris & Melbourne: Cassell & Company, 1893. 16 pp ads dated Mar 1893. Original blue-grey cloth pictorially decorated in gilt. First English Edition, published five days after the American. "The Bottle Imp" is one of Stevenson's weirdest tales -- a supernatural blend of Aladdin's lamp, the monkey's paw, and a game of hot potato. As with most (if not all) copies, the book's price on the preliminary ad leaf was raised by hand. Some copies have ads dated as early as Sept 1892; however, since the book wasn't published until early April 1893, we would regard the ads in this copy (March 1893) as "primary." This is a near-fine copy (minor cracking of the rear endpaper, spine very slightly darkened). Beinecke 577; Princeton 53A, copies 2-3.

Stevenson wrote this at intervals between January 1893 and October 1894, laying it aside six weeks before his death to work on WEIR OF HERMISTON. As pointed out in an editorial note, A.T. Quiller-Couch wrote the final six chapters from notes and outlines left by Stevenson. Though the binding design does not bear her initials, it is by Margaret Armstrong.

Description:
1883. London, Paris & New York: Cassell & Company, 1883. 4 pp ads dated July 1883. Original forest green cloth. First Edition, earliest date of ads, of this classic. In late 1881 Stevenson wrote this tale, titled THE SEA COOK, merely as an amusement for his 12-year-old stepson. It was accepted for serial publication (pseudonymously by "Captain George North") in Young Folks magazine, the editor of which recommended the change of title to TREASURE ISLAND -- which Stevenson had used as the name of the island but not of the book. W.E. Henley at Cassell's then negotiated the book publication: Stevenson initially received 100 pounds, "a sight more than TREASURE ISLAND is worth," he told Henley. The first edition consisted of 2000 copies, which were issued in four binding orders between 14 November and 11 December 1883. Some copies have ads curiously dated July 1883, while the majority has ads more properly dated October or December 1883. This copy does have the earliest (July) ads -- though it does… Read more
