Description:
1890. Translated from the French by A. Estoclet. Illustrated by George Roux. New York: Cassell Publishing Company, n.d. [1890]. Original light blue cloth pictorially decorated in black. First American Edition (also the first edition in English). Quoting from a contemporary review (cited in T&M) -- Like most of M. Jules Verne's books, it is the story of a journey. Some acrobats wish to travel from California to their native France, and having no money they determine to go in their caravan northward to Bering's Straits, crossing on the ice, and make their way through Siberia into Europe. M. Jules Verne's travellers are generally successful: in spite of robbers, icebergs, and the Russian police, the bold Frenchmen triumphantly reach their goal. Pictured on the front cover is the troupe with their horse-drawn wagon climbing into the Sierras, while the spine shows one of them fleeing a grizzly bear. This undated American edition (CAESAR) was published sometime in the autumn of 1890,… Read more

Description:
1930. Or The Skeleton in the Cupboard. London: William Heinemann, (1930). Original blue cloth, with dust jacket. First Edition of perhaps his [Maugham's] best novel, a witty and delicious comedy of literary England in the early decades of the 20th century, told in the first person by a novelist, Ashenden. The pushing and self-advertising novelist Alroy Kear wants to get at the details of the early life of Edward Driffield, an eminent novelist whose biography Kear has been commissioned to write. Ashenden had known Driffield and his first wife Rosie, a barmaid; Rosie, the skeleton in the cupboard of Driffield's life, is Kear's stumbling block -- he is not honest enough to be given the facts that Ashenden gives the reader. Rosie is a wonderful character -- affectionate, amoral, and generous. The narrator is obviously Maugham but he denied what so many readers were quick to conclude: that Alroy Kear was founded on Hugh Walpole and Edward Driffield on Thomas Hardy.

Description:
1889. [a Henty rarity] By Archibald Forbes, George Henty and Charles Williams. New York: Ward, Lock and Co., 1889. Printed light brown wrappers. First Edition (American issue) of "probably the rarest of all Henty items" (quote from Sotheby's, February 1972, when the last copy appeared at auction -- it sold for 380 pounds, or about $1,000). When Farmer did his account of Henty books decades ago, he noted that "We have been unable to secure a copy of this book, nor personally to inspect one. The British Museum copy was destroyed in the bombing of London." (Farmer ultimately gleaned information from a rebound copy in Scotland.) According to Henty's own copy (now at the Lilly Library), Henty wrote the Introduction plus four of the ten tales: "A Passing Face," "Faithful to the Death," "Turning the Tables" and "Out with the Redshirts." (Henty is also believed to have written the brief interludes that connect the ten tales.) One… Read more

Description:
1865. Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1865. 24 pp ads dated Dec 1864. Original blind-stamped violet-blue cloth. First Edition, which consisted of only 2,000 copies (of which some were sent to England where they were issued with a cancel title page) -- printed in December 1864, but not actually published until March 1865. Edited by the younger William Ellery Channing, this was the fifth Thoreau book, preceded by A WEEK ON THE CONCORD AND MERRIMACK RIVERS, WALDEN, and the posthumous EXCURSIONS and THE MAINE WOODS. Describing the natural environment and people of 'the bare and bended arm of Massachusetts,' the account is based on the author's experiences during three short visits to Cape Cod (Oct. 1849; June 1850; July 1855), and includes ten essays on the history and character of the inhabitants, 'The Highland Light,' Nantucket, the sea, the beach, and other aspects of the Cape. [OCAL] There were seven different types of cloth used for this book, without priority; this copy is in… Read more

Description:
1895. With Illustrations. New York: R. F. Fenno & Company, n.d. [1895]. Original olive green cloth pictorially decorated in black and silver. First American Edition in cloth of this tale of buried treasure, described as follows in a contemporary review (cited in T&M): Captain Antifer's father had befriended an Egyptian prisoner at Jaff [Jaffa], Kamylk Pasha, and many years after he received a mysterious document naming latitude 24 degrees 59 minutes north, and saying that the longitude would follow later. It never did; but Antifer succeeded in discovering it, and had a series of most exciting adventures in searching for the wealth which was to be found on the spot indicated. Antifer's efforts to find the islet's longitude, complicated by treachery and demands of marriage, take him to the Gulf of Oman, the Gulf of Guinea, and even north of Norway. After serialization in Boy's Own, Fenno published a wrappered version of this tale in June 1895, the first edition in the… Read more

Description:
1897. A Story of the Grand Banks. With Illustrations by I.W. Taber. London: Macmillan and Co., 1897. 2 pp undated ads. Original blue cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all page edges gilt. First English Edition, published about a month after the American. This is Kipling's great novel about the cod fishing fleet of Gloucester Massachusetts, written while the newlywed Kiplings lived in Vermont. Kipling freely acknowledged that the book owed much to Dr. James Conland of Brattleboro, who brought the Kiplings' elder daughter into the world -- for Conland had been a member of the Massachusetts fishing fleet, and it was he who took Kipling to explore the wharves and quays of Boston and Gloucester. (The American edition, in fact, is dedicated to Conland; this English edition bears no dedication.) This is the only book of Kipling's which is set entirely in America. All the characters are American. Not only that, but the heart of the book -- its moral in a single sentence -- is one of Kipling's… Read more

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.

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.

This is a near-fine copy; the attractive pictorial dust jacket is just about near-fine, with quite minor soil and edge-wear. Blanchard A87.

Description:
1948. Nicoll, Gordon. A Romance. London: William Heinemann, (1948). Original red cloth lettered in silver, with dust jacket. First Edition of Maugham's last novel, published two months before the American one. Set in Spain during the Inquisition, it told of a crippled girl to whom the Blessed Virgin appears in a vision. She will be healed by one of three brothers, the one who has best served God. One brother is a bishop, another is a soldier, and the third is a baker. It comes as no surprise that the humble panadero succeeds in healing the girl... In the slackness of the writing, the descent into cliche, and the contrived plot devices, CATALINA betrayed Maugham's declining powers... [It] was a feeble book with which to end a fifty-year career as a novelist. [Morgan] This copy has its lettering in silver (the publisher started out using silver but finding it unsatisfactory switched to imitation gold -- "both variations were delivered to the bookshops simultaneously"). It is… Read more

Description:
1913. Concluding with The Romantic Adventures of a Milkmaid. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, (1913). Original dark green cloth with monogram device in gilt. First (American) Edition, published simultaneously with the English one. To quote from Hardy's prefatory note, this is a collection of "for what they may be worth, a dozen minor novels" that had previously appeared only in periodicals -- between 1881 and 1900, before Hardy had forsaken fiction for verse. It constitutes Hardy's last major volume of prose. The American edition, which in our experience is scarcer than the English one, has as a frontispiece a Reinhart illustration from "The Romantic Adventures of a Milkmaid," where the English edition has a photogravure of Maiden Castle. This is a fine, bright copy (very faint discoloration on the rear cover). Purdy pp 156-7.

1908. Private Correspondence. Edited by George Pierce Baker. Boston: The Bibliophile Society, 1908. Original grey paper boards with parchment spine and corners, in original two-piece slipcase with spine label. First Edition, limited to 493 copies for Bibliophile Society members only (preceding the so-called "Bixby Edition" of the same year). Maria Beadnell, the first love of the young Charles Dickens during the years 1830-1833 (her father prevented the match), became the model for Dora in DAVID COPPERFIELD; in 1855 she contacted him and they secretly met without their spouses, but Dickens, surprised at how much she had changed, subsequently based the less-than-flattering Flora Finching of LITTLE DORRIT upon her. This is an as-new copy, in the original two-part slipcase (which has some wear at one corner). Podeschi D164.

1877. Translated by W. H. G. Kingston. Numerous Illustrations. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1877. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, all edges gilt. First British Edition of the tale also known as THE BLACK INDIES and as UNDER­GROUND CITY. The unusual tale takes place deep in a Scottish mine, in which a mysterious "goblin" appears to live... The peculiar wildness of Jules Verne's imagination shows with startling effect when he selects Scotland and its sober-minded people as scene and characters for his latest characteristic extravaganza. He describes a mine of fabulous wonders by and of superhuman powers, and then he has a plot that would furnish plots for several exciting novels. [from an early promotional piece cited in T&M] The pirate publisher George Munro was the first to get out an edition (THE BLACK INDIES) in English, in his triple-columned self-wrappered "Seaside Library" in the Spring of 1877. This first British edition came out in… Read more

First Edition, second issue -- with the date 1898 (rather than 1897) on the front of the title leaf. (Note: ALL copies without a date on the front of the title leaf are merely reprints.) In late 1897, Dodd Mead had a first edition of 1000 copies printed; because the book was scheduled for publication late in the fall season, the printers were instructed to print both 1897 and 1898 title pages. The number printed with each date is not recorded... It was re-introduced in the spring and listed in Publisher's Weekly on March 12th among the spring publications... Copies of the spring issue were supplied with the 1898 title page. [Cagle] This tale was subsequently published as THE NIGGER OF THE "NARCISSUS."
