Description:
1872. Much Sound and Little Sense. With Illustrations by the Author. London: John Camden Hotten, 1869. 4 pp undated (Routledge) ads. With: MORE "BAB" BALLADS... George Routledge and Sons, n.d.[1872]. 4 pp undated ads. Original green cloth decorated in gilt, beveled, all page edges gilt. First Editions of these collections of "clever verses which, in the name of good fun, discoursed amiably on violence and crime" [K&H]. Included are Gilbert's whimsical illustrations; in his Preface to the first volume he says "I have ventured to publish the illustrations with them because, while they are certainly quite as bad as the Ballads, I suppose they are not much worse." It was not until the following decade that Gilbert began collaborating with Arthur Sullivan on the comic operettas for which they are both remembered today. This copy of the first edition of THE "BAB" BALLADS is of the second issue -- which is to say, bound with a cover design similar to… Read more

First Edition of this very early Aldrich volume, his fourth -- after THE BELLS (1855), DAISY'S NECKLACE (1857) and THE COURSE OF TRUE LOVE (1858). The title verse is "the poem of a little life that was but three Aprils long." This copy is in chocolate brown "A" cloth (one of three cloths used, without precedence); it has no ads (some but not all copies have either 5 pp or 10 pp).

1892. New York: Macmillan and Co., 1892. 8 pp undated ads. Original dark blue cloth with front cover vignette in gilt. First (American) Edition, published nine days before the English edition which was titled BARRACK-ROOM BALLADS and Other Verses. Included in "Barrack-Room Ballads" are such well-known verses as "Danny Deever," "Tommy," "Fuzzy-Wuzzy," "Gunga Din" and "Mandalay"; these had appeared in the 1890 pirated volume DEPARTMENTAL DITTIES... published by New York Book Co. Leading off "Ballads" (and the whole book) is "The Ballad of East and West" ("... and never the twain shall meet"); this is its first appearance in a Kipling book, as it had appeared only in the 1891 poetry anthology LYRA HEROICA. Condition is near-fine, with light rubbing at the extremities. This American volume is considerably scarcer than its British counterpart. Richards A68; Stewart 110.

Description:
1841. A Tale of the Riots of 'Eighty. With Illustrations by George Cattermole and Hablot K. Browne. Complete in One Volume. London: Chapman and Hall, 1841. Original blind-stamped olive green cloth. First Separate Edition. After NICHOLAS NICKLEBY was published in monthly serial parts with separate plates in 1838-1839, Dickens decided that his future novels would be published in weekly serial parts that included the illustrations within the text -- loosely connected under the title of MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK. He began this project in April 1840 with his tale THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP; after forty-plus parts he completed that tale, and swung into the beginning of BARNABY RUDGE. In November 1841, after a total of 88 weekly parts, BARNABY RUDGE was complete. During this serialization, MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK (containing both novels) was also published in three volumes, one at a time; after serialization (in December 1841), each novel was also published separately in one volume, as with… Read more

Description:
1916. [Together, two volumes.] London: Thomas Nelson & Sons, n.d. [1916 & 1917]. Original paper-covered boards and original wrappers, respectively. First Editions of Buchan's account of the war effort. Buchan had joined the Nelson publishing firm as literary adviser in 1905 (due in large part to his friendship with Oxford classmate Tommy Nelson -- killed in action in April 1917). These volumes are filled with maps and also with photographs of the Somme battle sites, including a number of action ones showing British soldiers "crossing the parapets," tanks overrunning obstacles, mines exploding, etc. The first volume was bound in paper-covered heavy boards; the second was available (without priority) in either paper-covered thin boards or, as here, heavy wrappers. These are very good copies, with some edge-wear as would be expected on these fragile volumes; typically, both volumes are found with most of their spine paper lacking, but here most of it is present.

Description:
1846. A Love Story. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1846. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in gilt. First Edition of the fourth of Dickens's five illustrated Christmas books -- following A CHRISTMAS CAROL, THE CHIMES, and THE CRICKET ON THE HEARTH, and preceding THE HAUNTED MAN. This is an unusual tale in which two sisters love the same man, both ultimately settling in with him (though only one is married to him) -- according to Thackeray "a wretched affair." It is in fact quite autobiographical: Dickens loved Mary Hogarth, married her sister Catherine, and then was happy to have his household run by their sister Georgina. This copy has the vignette title page in the fourth and usual state (Todd's state E1), with an angel holding the banner and with no publisher's imprint. In our experience, at least 90% and perhaps 95% of the copies encountered are of this state. This is a bright, attractive copy, just about fine, with only the faintest hint of wear at the very tips… Read more

Condition is very nearly fine -- unusually clean, and with only the very slightest of edgewear. Quite remarkable condition for such a fragile 180-year-old volume. Cohn 65.

Description:
1888. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1888. 8 pp undated ads. Original printed yellow wrappers. First Edition, published about six weeks before the London edition. Unlike the English one, the American edition is illustrated (twelve plates); it was also issued, at a higher price, in red cloth (no precedence). Stevenson wrote this entire novel in the Spring of 1883, for serial appearance in "Young Folks" (where TREASURE ISLAND had then just appeared). He wrote not only rapidly but also carelessly: proofreaders had to alert him to inconsistencies in his plot and characters. Stevenson derided the work as "tushery"; neither he nor his British publisher considered it worth publishing in book form. However, in 1887 the American publisher McClure sought it out for American serialization, which prompted Scribner's to publish it in book form, which in turn prompted Stevenson's publisher Cassell in London. This is a remarkably near-fine copy, which for these fragile wrappers is amazing (spine paper… Read more

Description:
1892. San Francisco | New York: Western Authors Publishing Company, 1892. Original blind-stamped light grey cloth, beveled. First Edition of Bierce's first volume of verse, published the year after his most famous book, TALES OF SOLDIERS AND CIVILIANS. There are about 150 short poems (which he terms "beetles"), mostly gleaned from appearances in newspapers. Bierce had seen action, including at Shiloh, in an Indiana Infantry Regiment; his anti-war sentiments, and fixation with death, are reflected in his writings. In our experience this is a tough book to find in decent condition, due to its light grey cloth and frugal use of gilt. This is a nearly fine copy, however, with scarcely any wear and with only the slightest hint of soil (near the covers' fore-edge). Blanck 1111.

1895. Or The Man Who Saved England. A Study of Torpedo Warfare in 189-. Illustrated by the Author. London: Tower Publishing Company, 1895. 2 pp undated ads. Original grey-green cloth pictorially decorated in black and orange. First Edition of the first of Jane's scientific romances -- visions of future war, fought with future ships and aircraft. Not only is the book by Jane, but the action illustrations are too. Subsequent Jane titles, published over the following four years, included THE INCUBATED GIRL, TO VENUS IN FIVE SECONDS and THE VIOLET FLAME ("A Story of Armageddon and After"). Since his death in 1916, Jane has been best-known for the military annuals that bear his name today -- ALL THE WORLD'S FIGHTING SHIPS and ALL THE WORLD'S AIRCRAFT. This is a bright copy, fine except for a little ruffling at the spine ends. Currey p. 264; Bleiler Checklist p. 109.

Description:
1931. London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1931. Original green cloth, with dust jacket. First Edition. As with Buchan's MIDWINTER (1923), this is a tale sited in Buchan's adopted home of Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds. Taking place during the reign of Henry VIII, a country boy is convinced by three self-serving men that he is sixth in descent from Edward III and thus should instead be King -- and that he should therefore kidnap Henry VIII. A band of vagabonds and a mystical forest woman also come into play. To me THE BLANKET OF THE DARK is Buchan's most deeply felt novel: characters and actions are devices which fittingly embody his sense of a time of drastic change, and his own deep -- I would almost say wild -- love of his adopted countryside. The girl in the tale, like Katrine in WITCH WOOD, is a creature of ballad or myth... For Buchan she is the expression of the exhilaration, the quickened sense of life, that came to him as he roamed round Oxfordshire and felt in his bones the past.… Read more

1853. [in the primary cloth binding] With Illustrations by H[ablot]. K. Browne. London: Bradbury and Evans, 1853. Original blind-stamped olive green cloth, all page edges gilt. First Edition in book form (following issuance in 20-in-19 monthly parts), of Dickens's famous novel that attacks Chancery, the London legal system. Included are forty plates by "Phiz," of which ten are "dark plates" made possible by a new procedure. This copy is still in the original cloth binding -- the primary one, with blind-stamping that includes 16 little beads around each cover's outer margin. (An ad in the final serial part urged customers to either (a) buy the book in this binding for one guinea (£1/1s/0d), or (b) take their serial parts to "their Booksellers" to arrange for the parts to be bound up in this binding for 1s/6d. This copy -- bound without the half-title and of course without all the ads -- is from the latter option, as one can see the parts' stab-holes; the owner of these parts paid extra, though,… Read more

1895. Illustrated. New York: The Merriam Company, n.d. [1895]. 3 pp undated ads. Original violet cloth decorated in dark violet. First Edition, issued as the second volume in Merriam's "Violet Series." This is Stevenson's famous tale about the anatomist "K---" and his need for cadavres (based undoubtedly upon the career of Robert Knox, 1793-1862); the 1945 film of the same title starred Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. RLS actually wrote this tale in mid-1881, to be part of a collection of supernatural tales which he referred to as "creepers"; he never completed the project, but a few of the tales remain. Ironically this grisly tale's first appearance was in the Pall Mall Gazette's 1884 Christmas Extra (substituted at the last moment for a briefer RLS tale, in order to fulfill a commitment of sufficient length). It is equally ironic that such a grisly story would first appear in book form in this cute little violet volume decorated with flowers.… Read more

This is a retelling of a dozen true historical events that involved "escapes and hurried journeys" all over the world (Scotland, South Africa, Turkestan, Australia...), illustrated with eight plates by A.S. Forrest. The book was subsequently reprinted as a text-book, with additional questions and exercises not by Buchan. This is a handsomely bound book: the four-color pictorial scene wraps around from the front cover onto the spine. A fine copy, remarkably clean, virtually as new except for faint evidence of a small book-label on the front endpaper. See Blanchard A54 (note).

First Edition of this sizeable volume (over 12 inches tall) of Native American tales by Hamlin Garland -- profusely illustrated with 35 full-page plates by Frederic Remington -- of which three are in color. Most of these illustrations had appeared in Harper's Weekly or in Harper's Magazine during the 1890s; some of them had subsequently appeared in novels by other authors, as well. This copy is from the first printing, with the appropriate (December 1923) Harper date-code on the copyright page. It is in FINE condition, with the exception of a few small holes in the cloth joints -- a common problem with this hefty book. Included is the scarce brown-paper dust jacket, on which is affixed the same color plate that appears at p. 116; the jacket is FINE except for being price-clipped.
