Description:
1822. [in original boards] London: Printed and Published by R. Carlile, 1822. Original drab paper-covered boards. First Published Edition, second issue -- which is to say, the sheets of William Clark's 1821 pirated edition, with the 1822 cancel title leaf of radical publisher Richard Carlile. "Queen Mab, a Philosophical Poem [in Nine Cantos] with [Seventeen] Notes" -- Shelley's first major poetic work -- was first privately-printed in 1813. Since it was a radical and revolutionary vision of a utopian world (from an atheistic viewpoint), Shelley never intended it to go beyond his friends. But in 1821 a stash of the undistributed sheets was discovered by London bookseller William Clark, and the result was an 1821 pirated edition (with the help of the infamous book pirate Thomas Moses, whose monogram also appears here on the final page of text). Shelley tried to suppress this Clark/Moses edition, but was unsuccessful because the courts ruled that "books liable to conviction for blasphemy or… Read more

Description:
1886. [illustrated by Kate Greenaway] Illustrated by Kate Greenaway. London: Chatto and Windus, n.d. [1886]. Original olive linen with color pictorial covers, all page edges red. First Edition of this 58-page children's fantasy tale that includes 28 color illustrations by Kate Greenaway. There is a very similar American edition, actually printed and bound in the U.K. at the same time as this edition, with a Houghton Mifflin title page that bears the date 1887. This copy is in what Blanck calls "binding C(B?)" -- pictorial olive linen, page edges stained red, white endpapers; binding A with gilt page edges is believed to have been the first, or certainly the most expensive, but the order of the other two is unknown. It is in remarkably fine condition, without soil or wear -- and is rather uncommon thus. Blanck 7337 (binding "C(B?)").

Description:
1823. By the Author of "Waverley,["] ["]Peveril of the Peak," &c. Edinburgh: Printed for Archibald Constable and Co. Edinburgh; and Hurst, Robinson, and Co. London, 1823. Original textured grey-green cloth, with printed spine labels. First Edition, first issue, of Scott's well-known adventure tale sited in Fifteenth Century France, amidst the conflict between King Louis XI and the ambitious Duke of Burgundy. The Duke arranges a marriage for the young Burgundian heiress Isabelle, in order to ensure that her wealth remains within his dukedom, so the King sends a young Scot in his guard, Quentin Durward, to rescue Isabelle and convey her to safety -- a journey beset by dangers from all sides. (QUENTIN DURWARD caused quite a sensation in Paris, as this was Scott's first setting of a novel in a foreign land.) Among Scott's novels, certainly IVANHOE is the best known; however, after IVANHOE there are three others -- ROB ROY, KENILWORTH and QUENTIN DURWARD -- that would be considered by most to fall… Read more
