Description:
1881. Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1881 / 1884 / 1888 / 1892. [Together, four volumes.] Original dark green cloth with facsimile signature in gilt, beveled. First Edition, first printing, of each of Thoreau's "four seasons" edited from his journal by H.G.O. Blake. (It is curious that the four seasons were published not quite in their natural order.) According to Blanck these four printings consisted of only 1018, 1260, 1550 and 1020 copies respectively. These are unusually bright copies -- a touch of rubbing at some corners, perhaps a faint scratch or two, but otherwise Fine. It is not easy to encounter all four Seasons in this condition. Borst A8.1.a & A9.1.a & A10.1.a & A11.1.a; Blanck 20123 & 20127 & 20129 & 20130. Housed in an open-back slipcase.

1895. [in unbound gatherings] A Trio & Quartette. Chicago & Cambridge: Stone & Kimball, 1895. Original unbound folded signatures. First Edition, fourth printing, published on October 5, 1895 (the publishing history is itemized on the copyright page). This copy is still in its printed but unbound state -- in fourteen folded gatherings, the first being the preliminary couplet of half title plus title leaves. Condition is near-fine (a few very minor marks, shadow of writing on the final sheet). Quite uncommon in this state. See Beinecke (Yale) 599 and Princeton 56. Housed in a custom cloth slipcase with leather labels and inner chemise.

Description:
1894. A Novel. Illustrated by Alfred Brennan. In: six consecutive monthly issues of McClure's Magazine. New York: S.S. McClure, February - July 1894. Original orange wrappers printed in white and black. First Appearance of this novel. Stevenson and his stepson had contracted to write this in 1888, and Osbourne began it at once, but (in his own words) "try as I would I could not please RLS; I wrote and rewrote, and rewrote again, but always to have him shake his head." Osbourne laid it aside and never resumed it, but some five years later Stevenson picked it up and completed it. At the end of this serialization (July 1894), THE EBB TIDE was published by Stone & Kimball of Chicago (subtitled "A Trio and Quartette," and without illustrations); the London edition came out two months later, and Stevenson died that December. Here the novel is complete in these six issues (in the first issue, McClure says it will be complete in four -- which underscores the fact that RLS was still writing when… Read more

Description:
1894. London: William Heinemann, 1894. 20 pp ads dated August 1894. Original (smooth) bronze cloth pictorially decorated in black. First English Edition (published two months after the Chicago one) of this novel Stevenson co-wrote with his stepson. A down-on-his-luck sea captain accepts an assignment on a rickety boat with a mysterious cargo and a questionable crew. As disaster befalls disaster, the crew finds itself on an uncharted island with a mad ex-sea captain who lives with a mute woman who threatens to kill them all. [Sacksteder, reviewing the 1998 film of this tale] This copy is bound in smooth bronze cloth, and has the rear cover device measuring 3/4-inch in diameter (some measure 11/16-inch). According to Carter, this smooth bronze cloth, with August 1894 ad catalogue, is one of the two primary binding states (the other being a pebbled bronze cloth); there is also a presumably-later smooth light brown cloth. This is a just-about-fine copy (the slightest of rubbing at some edges, a… Read more

Description:
1908. London: Hutchinson & Co., 1908. 32 pp ads dated Autumn 1908. Original blue cloth. First Edition of "these further exciting incidents in the life of the Scarlet Pimpernel during the French Revolution after the King's death" -- the sequel to Baroness Orczy's THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL (play 1903, novel 1905) and I WILL REPAY (1906). Although this was the third book (of eighteen) published in this Reign-of-Terror series featuring Sir Percy Blakeney aka The Scarlet Pimpernel, it is the seventh in plot chronology. THE ELUSIVE PIMPERNEL has been adapted for the screen at least three times -- in 1919, in 1950 (as "The Fighting Pimpernel"), and in 1969. None of these is to be confused with Daffy Duck's memorable 1954 short titled "The Scarlet Pumpernickel." An oddity of this book is that in its own ad catalogue it is listed as THE ILLUSIVE PIMPERNEL. This is the Michael Sadleir copy, with his small oval bookplate on the front free endpaper; it is in fine… Read more

Description:
1890. [a handsome copy] A Novel. In Three Volumes. London: Richard Bentley and Son, 1890. Original patterned paper-covered boards with brown cloth spines. First Edition, which consisted of 1,000 copies (of which, according to the publisher, only 492 were sold -- but that may have been Bentley's ruse to avoid paying Gissing "bonuses" that would kick in if 850 or all 1,000 were to sell). The young widow Miriam Baske leaves grey Lancashire for the sun of Naples, Italy, where she finds herself among many of her countrymen in a vastly different social scene -- similar to some of Henry James's accounts of transplanted Americans and Britishers, and reminiscent of MIDDLEMARCH. The novel marked the beginning of Gissing's series of psychological novels, "which were less concerned with the effects of environment and more concerned with the emotional and intellectual conflicts experienced by socially alienated characters" [Collie]. This was the only one of Gissing's novels… Read more

Description:
1897. London: William Heinemann, 1897. 8 pp undated ads (plus endpapers imprinted with ads). Original rose pebbled cloth. First Colonial Edition -- which is to say, the colonial issue of Heinemann's second impression (which impression may have consisted only of these colonial copies). Heinemann published the domestic edition (1,250 copies, dated 1896) on 12 June 1896; there was a second impression (250 copies, dated 1897) published in February 1897. Both E&L and Supino wonder whether there were any colonial copies dated 1896, but neither ever saw one. This copy, in the original rose pebbled cloth, is in close-to-fine condition (one bit of discoloration at the bottom of the rear joint): this colonial edition is scarce in any condition, but it is even scarcer in this condition -- considering that most copies went out to far-flung corners of the planet. Supino 46.3.0; Edel & Laurence F41 (and see A46).

Description:
1911. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1911. 1 preliminary page + 4 pp undated ads. Original red cloth. First Edition of Edith Wharton's best-known book, a grim novella sited on a bleak Massachusetts farm. "As in THE HOUSE OF MIRTH, the central problem is that of the barriers imposed by local convention upon an individual whose happiness depends on rising above them" [OCAL]. This copy's leaves have a gilt top edge, and the word "wearily" is printed properly at the bottom of p. 135. Both copies with gilt top edge and copies with plain top edge appear with this word both perfect and battered: therefore, although it is generally assumed that "wearily" became battered during the 6000-copy print run (though it's possible it became battered and was then fixed), one cannot assume that the 2500 copies with gilt top edge were printed or issued earlier than the 3500 copies with plain top edge. In any event, this is a nearly fine copy (very slight fading of… Read more

Description:
1873. A Novel. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1873. 4 pp preliminary undated ads. Original printed buff wrappers. Early edition in wrappers, being No. 577 in Harper's "Library of Select Novels." Harper's first edition (published a few days earlier than the 1873-dated London three-decker) came out in October 1872 and was dated 1872 on the title page. Issued both in cloth and in wrappers, it was not a volume in this "Library"; beginning the following year (so dated, as here), printed from the same plates, it became No. 577. This copy was not actually issued for a dozen more years -- as the rear cover ads are dated "for 1885." Condition is perhaps very good for such a fragile paper volume: the two wrappers have translucent archival backing, and three corners are chipped away; most of the spine, with its lettering, is present. See Smith pp 165-169 (and especially his Note 5); Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 39.

First Edition (Harper's one-volume edition was published in October 1872; the London three-decker, dated 1873, came out two months later, in December 1872). This is Trollope's tale about the adventuress Lizzie Greystock -- "the very beautiful, superficially clever and completely selfish daughter of an admiral who was no credit whatever to the British Navy" [Gerould]. She trapped wealthy Sir Florian Eustace into marrying her just before he died, and so came into possession of a diamond necklace -- which she claimed he had given her but his relatives claimed as an heirloom. But then the necklace was stolen not once but twice, or was it actually?... As a "Palliser" novel, it includes many of the same characters who had been in CAN YOU FORGIVE HER? and in PHINEAS FINN. On this copy the green is fairly dark, and the grain of the cloth consists of tiny squares;… Read more

Description:
1906. Translated from the Original MS. Illustrated by Lester Ralph. London and New York: Harper & Brothers, 1906. Original red cloth decorated in green and black. First (American) Edition. Written as Eve's diary in the Garden of Eden, this was a companion volume to EXTRACTS FROM ADAM'S DIARY (1904) -- but actually it is a thinly-veiled tribute to Twain's wife, Livy, who had died in the same month that the earlier book was published. "The theme is simple: without companionship, life has no meaning" [MacDonnell]. Curiously, the publisher's title page imprint reads "London and New York," which in that order was Harper's imprint for English editions; there are no known copies that properly read "New York and London." This copy is remarkably fine, with no soil and little fading; atypically, the white spine lettering has not flaked away at all. McBride p. 220; Blanck 3489.

1896. An Impressionist Novel. Frontispiece by Aubrey Beadsley. London: Elkin Mathews, 1896. 20 pp ads dated 1895-96. Original dark blue cloth decorated in light blue and lettered in bronze. First Edition, which consisted of 1000 copies. This copy is of the second and usual issue, with the so-called "Portrait of the Author" frontispiece. Elkin Mathews supposedly had commissioned a portrait of Ruding as a frontispiece, and was thus rather annoyed when Beardsley instead submitted his "black coffee" one that he had already produced for the ill-fated Volume V of THE YELLOW BOOK. Furthermore John Lane objected to his former partner and his former artist using an illustration that had been prepared for his use. A very few (six? twelve?) copies were issued with that first frontispiece, but one story is that Mathews then stood over Beardsley, refusing to leave his rooms, until the present frontispiece was well advanced. The portrait "may or may not depict the mysterious Ruding… Read more

1863. Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1863. 1 preliminary page undated ads. Original blind-stamped blue-green cloth with gilt-decorated spine. First Edition, which consisted of only 1558 copies. This posthumous collection of naturalist essays (including "A Winter Walk," "Autumnal Tints," "Night and Moonlight" and "Walking") was Thoreau's third book, preceded only by A WEEK ON THE CONCORD AND MERRIMACK RIVERS (1849) and WALDEN (1854). When Thoreau died of tuberculosis in May 1862 (at the age of 44), nothing of his had been published during the eight years since WALDEN. The editor of this book was the author's sister Sophia Thoreau; the 26-page "Biographical Sketch" of Thoreau is by his friend and neighbor Ralph Waldo Emerson. Included is an engraved frontispiece portrait of Thoreau -- the first publication of his likeness anywhere. This copy is in pebble-grain cloth; others are in triangular-grain cloth, or in cloth with a zigzag pattern… Read more

1903. A Story of Chicago. New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1903. Original red cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition, first printing (with the J.J. Little device and "First Edition" on the copyright page). This was the second volume in Norris's planned trilogy on human suffering and sacrifice, "The Epic of the Wheat." THE OCTOPUS (1901) had described the struggle between wheat farmers and the railroad interests in California, and THE PIT then follows the same wheat through the manipulation of the commodity markets in Chicago. The third volume, which would have been titled THE WOLF, was going to follow the wheat to its destination, relieving a famine in Europe. However, Norris died in 1902 (after an appendix operation, at age 32), so the third volume was never written. This copy is in the standard bright red cloth binding (there were also "presentation copies" in grey paper boards), and is in bright, near-fine condition (one small mark on the rear cover).… Read more

1868. Devoted to the Development of the Country. Volume I / Volume II. San Francisco: A. Roman & Company, 1868 / 1869. Original morocco-grain green cloth decorated in gilt. These two volumes contain the pre-book publication appearances of parts of Mark Twain's INNOCENTS ABROAD and also, in their entirety, of two of Bret Harte's best-known western tales -- "The Luck of Roaring Camp" and "The Outcasts of Poker Flat." These are the first two volumes (containing the first twelve issues) of The Overland Monthly -- the greatest periodical to come out of the 19th-century American West. It was established by San Francisco bookseller Anton Roman -- a Bavarian immigrant who had been part of the Gold Rush two decades earlier. He was now transitioning into publishing, having just issued a collection of California verse called OUTCROPPINGS, plus a volume of verse by Charles Warren Stoddard. The very first issue came out in July 1868, and consisted almost entirely of… Read more
