Description:
1924. Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1924. Original decorative boards with black cloth spine and printed labels, with dust jacket. First American Edition of this last of the three "collaborations" between Conrad and Hueffer/Ford (following THE INHERITORS and ROMANCE). (The English edition is by Conrad and "F. M. Hueffer"; the American is by Conrad and "Ford Madox Ford," using his de-Germanized adopted name). The book was actually written in 1906, at a time when their relationship was disintegrating, and it was virtually all Hueffer's work -- it is really nothing more than a "thinly disguised autobiographical memoir by Ford, to which he evidently wanted Conrad to contribute". As Conrad lay dying in 1924, Hueffer asked his permission to publish it with Conrad's preface, to which Conrad reluctantly agreed. Conrad called it "'that idiotic publication,' and he refused to allow it to appear in THE BEST STORIES OF 1924. He… Read more

Description:
1882. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1882. Undated endpaper ads. Original mustard yellow cloth decorated in black. First American hardbound edition, issued as No. 141 in the Leisure Hour Series; George Munro's pirated "Seaside Library" edition, with triple-column text in a magazine-sized format, was listed in Publisher's Weekly a week earlier -- though actual dates of publication are not known. NEW ARABIAN NIGHTS, published in the U. K. as Stevenson's only multi-volume first edition, consists of "The Suicide Club" (three loosely-connected tales), "The Rajah's Diamond" (four loosely-connected tales), "The Pavilion on the Links," plus three short French tales. Calder has observed that although RLS was very fond of these tales himself, they "rest uneasily in a limbo between fantasy and psychological realism." This is a clean, attractive copy, in fine condition -- quite remarkable for one of these delicate, pale-colored volumes of the Leisure Hour Series (the same series that contains the first… Read more

Description:
1868. Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1868. Original terra-cotta cloth decorated in gilt. First American Edition (published on the same day as the London edition and the Leipzig edition) of these two plays in verse form -- "John Endicott" sited in 1665 Boston and "Giles Corey" in 1692 Salem. This copy is in terra-cotta cloth (one of three colors that were used in addition to several leather bindings), and has the TF pendant device in the supposed second state (with a hollow pendant). As Blanck points out, there were four identical printings dated 1868 (the first almost double the size of the other three combined), though there are at least two instances of type-batter (which this copy does exhibit) that may indicate a copy from late in the first printing or from one of the other three. This is a fine, bright copy. Blanck 12150.

Description:
1913. New York: The Century Company, 1913. 1 page undated ads. Original blue-grey cloth decorated in black. First Edition of this collection of ten short stories. In addition to the title story, the volume includes "The Madness of John Harned," "Bunches of Knuckles" and "To Kill a Man." This was the second of four books in a row published by Century, after Jack had strayed from Macmillan on his trip to New York a year earlier. He had business in New York with the Millergraph investment [he had bought into the invention of a new lithographic process, which promptly went awry], and he took Charmian there in the winter of 1911. It was the worst time of her marriage. He abandoned her most of the time in an apartment on Morningside Heights, while he roistered night and day round the city with... a pack of friends. He stopped writing and drank heavily, unable to resist the lure of being a literary lion. He went to boxing matches, he spent the nights on Broadway or with… Read more

Description:
1923. A Comedy. Edited with a Preface by Michael Sadleir. London: Constable & Company, 1923. Original blind-stamped deep red cloth with gilt-decorated spine. First Edition, which consisted of only 500 copies. This is one of only two plays that Trollope ever wrote, as "the genre was uncomfortable to him." He wrote it early in his career, in 1850, at about the same time as his third novel (LA VENDEE). He later used the germ of THE NOBLE JILT to create "one of his best known novels; to it is due the existence of CAN YOU FORGIVE HER?" (Sadleir, the editor who had this book published from the original manuscript -- and from whom these quotes are drawn -- gives a character-by-character comparison between this play and that novel in his preface.) The binding is an exact facsimile of that used in 1864 for CAN YOU FORGIVE HER?. This is a near-fine copy, without wear but with the spine slightly faded (as usual with this color cloth). Sadleir (Trollope) 70.

Description:
1891. A Tale of the American Civil War. With Numerous Illustrations. New and Cheaper Edition. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1891. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black. Early English ("New and Cheaper") Edition of this adventure tale taking place during the American Civil War. This is the tale of the antagonism between Burbank (an anti-slavery Northerner now living near Jacksonville, Florida) and Texar (a pro-slavery Southerner); Texar winds up kidnapping Burbank's daughter and hiding her in the Everglades, and Burbank heads off in search of his daughter -- all as the Civil War rages around them. The first English edition came out in December 1887 (though dated 1888). Sampson Low would always issue a "New and Cheaper Edition" two or three years later, in a similar but slightly smaller binding, but with the same crisp illustrations. This copy is very good (recased in its original binding, with the original pale yellow endpapers which… Read more

1888. A Tale of the American Civil War. With Numerous Illustrations. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1888. Original blue-grey cloth pictorially decorated in black and red, all page edges gilt. First British Edition of this adventure tale taking place during the American Civil War. This is the tale of the antagonism between Burbank (an anti-slavery Northerner now living near Jacksonville, Florida) and Texar (a pro-slavery Southerner); Texar winds up kidnapping Burbank's daughter and hiding her in the Everglades, and Burbank heads off in search of his daughter -- all as the Civil War rages around them. NORD CONTRE SUD came out in France in 1887, and by the end of the summer of that year the American pirate publisher George Munro came out with TEXAR'S VENGEANCE in his wrappered Seaside Library. In November 1887, Rand McNally published a hardbound American edition (a different translation) titled TEXAR'S REVENGE. Then this British edition, hardbound and illustrated and the same… Read more

Description:
1914. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1914. Original olive-brown cloth. First American Edition, which consisted of 2000 copies and was published one day after Dent's London edition. Novelists covered by James include Robert Louis Stevenson, Emile Zola, Gustave Flaubert, Honore de Balzac and George Sand. This was one of several James titles that was unfortunately bound for Scribner's in this unattractive olive-brown cloth that is very prone to soil and fading; this, however, is a fine copy with very little fading. Supino 73.2.0; Edel & Laurence A73b. Provenance: the front paste-down bears the bookplate of Theodore Woodman Gore (1847-1923), which bookplate was designed by the renowned American artist Edwin Howland Blashfield.

Description:
1921. London: William Heinemann, 1921. Original grey boards with Japan vellum spine with printed label. First English Edition, being one of 250 numbered copies signed by Conrad -- this being copy #171. This was actually printed in America: Doubleday Page produced 500 copies, sending half of them to Heinemann for this English edition. This little-known Conrad title consists of the prefaces that he wrote, generally for the Dent editions of 1917 and for the "Sun­Dial" edition of his works. Of his limited-signed editions, this is one with the fewest number of copies. This is a just-about-fine copy, with scarcely any wear and with very little of the usual cover soil. Although the American copies are frequently seen in dust jacket, we have never seen a Heinemann dust jacket, and do not believe that one existed. Cagle A52b.

Description:
1893. A Collection of Short Original Stories for Children. London: Skeffington and Son, 1893. Original light blue paper-covered boards decorated in white, pink, green and black. First Edition of this anthology of 18 "short original stories for children" by 13 different authors of the day -- including G. A. Henty ("The Wreckers of Pendarven"); others include L.T. Meade, Mrs. Molesworth and Mabel Wotton. It is a very delicate book, because it was bound in paper-covered boards rather than in cloth. This copy is in very good condition, the main flaw being that the volume has been re-backed in similarly-light-blue cloth, with most of the original spine laid back down; the original light brown patterned endpapers are covered with later blue-patterned ones. Newbolt 165.1.
