Description:
1878. Boston: Houghton, Osgood & Company, 1878. Original terra-cotta cloth decorated in black and gilt, beveled. First Edition, which consisted of only 3,000 copies (some of which were not bound up until 1886, and some of which -- 665 to be exact -- were never bound up but were "ground up" in November 1897). In short, this title, published four years before Longfellow died, was not a hot seller -- though it does include his "Birds of Passage" group of poems. This copy is in the primary binding, with "Houghton Osgood & Co" at the foot of the spine, and is in terra-cotta cloth (one of several colors used). Condition is bright and just about fine (the slightest of rubbing at the corners). Blanck 12199.

Description:
1901. [in 1901 dust jacket] London: Macmillan and Co., 1901. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth with Ganesha device in gilt, with dust jacket. First English Edition of the book that "is acknowledged as Kipling's masterpiece in fiction... The novel is the finest written about the India of the British Empire" [CGEL]. It follows the adventures of an orphan son of a British soldier who is raised by an Indian woman, becomes a disciple to a Lama, and ultimately becomes an undercover agent as well. The illustrations are by John Lockwood Kipling, the author's father. The American edition is considered to have been published earlier (though in the same month as the English one). As with most of Kipling's British editions published by Macmillan, the binding is red cloth with in gilt the "Ganesha" device -- an elephant's head with a swastika (the latter had been a ubiquitous symbol in India for millennia; its use ceased in the early 1930s, when events in Germany gave the symbol a whole new meaning).… Read more

Description:
1935. London: Hodder and Stoughton, (1935). Original beige cloth printed in red and blue, with dust jacket. First Edition (trade issue) of this "picture -- and some slight interpretation" of the reign of King George V, upon the occasion of his Silver Jubilee. Though Buchan observes that the time for an actual biography "has happily not yet come," the King did die only eight months later. (At that time this trade edition was reprinted to include a second epilogue and a photograph of the King's bier.) In addition to this trade issue, there were 500 numbered/signed large paper copies; there were also Canadian trade and signed issues, as well. (The American edition was titled THE PEOPLE'S KING.) This is a fine copy in a near-fine (very slightly soiled) dust jacket -- which is NOT price-clipped, and includes the separate "Daily Mail Book of the Month" wraparound slip. Blanchard A107.

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:
1935. Racine, Wisconsin: Artists and Writers Guild, n.d. [ca 1935]. Original color-pictorial spiral-bound flexible card covers. First Artists & Writers edition (spiral-bound) of what many consider to be Maxfield Parrish's ultimate achievement in book form. The oversize (12" x 10") plates, in luminous color, are magnificent. This A&W edition is often described as having been published in 1925, because the book's only date, is where it reads "Copyright 1925 by Charles Scribner's Sons." However, this Artists and Writers edition was published a whole decade later -- in 1935-1936, and in Poughkeepsie not in Racine. The original (first) edition was indeed published by Scribner in 1925 -- a regular hardbound book. Western Printing Company of Racine Wisconsin had acquired Whitman Publishing in 1916, to issue inexpensive juvenile books; in the early 1930s, Western also acquired Artists and Writers Guild of Poughkeepsie, New York -- not a "guild" at all, but a printer then specializing in playing cards… Read more
