Description:
1901. London: Methuen & Co., 1901. 32 pp ads dated March 1911. Original lacquered red cloth with an intricate blind-stamped design (which is initialed "GAR"). First English Edition of this novel which was considered by the critics to be "mystifying" and "baffling." An un-named narrator rides a train from Paddington to a country estate where he spends the weekend; on the trip he tries to "solve" the love relationships between the other people -- the stronger members in relationships seem to draw their vitality out of their weaker partners, but also relationships seem to change over the course of the weekend. "THE SACRED FOUNT sold poorly -- the poorest of all the James titles published by Methuen. Ten years later, apparently encouraged by the success of THE OUTCRY, which went into four printings, Methuen bound a quantity of remaining sheets of the earlier novel" [E&L]; this explains this copy's 1911 ad catalogue. This is an attractive copy, fine except for (as usual) a slightly dulled spine.… Read more

Description:
1915. London, Edinburgh, Dublin and New York: Thomas Nelson and Sons, n.d. [1915]. Original olive cloth, printed in white on the front cover and in gilt on the spine. First Edition of this tale sited in the 1680s -- with young Andrew Garvald starting out in Scotland, but winding up "in the emerging American colony of Virginia. There he encounters the classic Buchan elements of people who are more than they seem, conspiracies, shadowy figures whose names can only be whispered in certain places, and hanging over all a grave threat to the survival of the colonists from Indian forces massing beyond the mountains and controlled by a mysterious European figure" [A. Hutton]. This is a copy of the true first edition, consisting of 397 pages and with the dedicatory poem preceding the Contents leaf (there was a 1916 second edition, also undated, of 380 pages with those two leaves reversed). This copy is fine except that the volume is slightly askew. This is an uncommon title; later the same year,… Read more

Description:
1850. Boston: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1850. Original blind-stamped brown cloth. First Edition, only printing, of one of the greatest works of American literature -- "the old story of the girl who loved not wisely but too well, set in the stark background of Puritan New England" [Johnson]. While the Rev. Arthur Dimmesdale struggles for years with his hidden guilt, and Hester Prynne's husband (alias Roger Chillingworth) becomes morally bankrupt with his cruel search to discover the identity of the unknown father, Hester herself triumphs over her sin by openly confessing to it. There were 2,500 copies of the first and only printing of the first edition, published on March 16, 1850; the following month was published the second edition of another 2,500 copies (not so identified other than by its inserted "Preface to the Second Edition," though Clark identifies 69 changes in the text, the best-known of which is "reduplicate" changed to "repudiate" on p. 21). In this copy the first gathering is in… Read more

Description:
1915. Illustrated by Gordon Grant. New York: The Macmillan Company, 1915. 6 pp undated ads. Original maroon cloth decorated in orange and yellow. First Edition of this unusual tale actually written some time earlier, at about the same time as SMOKE BELLEW and THE NIGHT-BORN. He had just abandoned a book he called THE ASSASSINATION BUREAU, as he was interrupted by the death of their newborn baby and he never returned to it. He then turned to THE SCARLET PLAGUE -- a haunting futuristic novel about the end of the world, with San Francisco reduced to an archaeological site beside which an old man tells a group of young savages about the breakdown of society after the attack of an incurable plague. In one graceful reference, Jack acknowledged his debt to Poe, saying that some called the plague "The Red Death"... Almost casually, THE SCARLET PLAGUE ends in a hope of horses, with a beautiful stallion and a small herd standing on the wild beach in the sunset. [Sinclair] This was at the time Jack and… Read more

Description:
1896. London: John Lane / New York: Macmillan & Co., 1896. 16 pp ads dated 1896. Original light brown cloth decorated in dark brown, with dark brown cloth spine elaborately decorated in gilt. First Edition of Buchan's second book, a volume of sixteen essays, preceded only by his SIR QUIXOTE OF THE MOORS of 1895. Buchan notes in his "Prefatory" that these pieces "were all written in youth, when a man's thoughts run on many diverse things with a certain tentative aim," and also that "they were written in close connection with that most beautiful country, the upper valley of Tweed, where the grace of old times seems to have long lingered." This is the third volume in the publisher's handsome "Arcady Library" series; it is beautifully illustrated with etchings by D.Y. Cameron (Buchan's Glasgow friend who introduced him to the publisher John Lane), and the cover design (of a goat-footed Pan piping to three nymphs) is by Patten Wilson. This… Read more

Description:
1868. [signed by George MacDonald] In Three Volumes. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1868. Original maroon cloth decorated in gilt (portraying medieval-style external book hinges). First Edition. This is the second novel in MacDonald's "Marshmallows Trilogy" -- the other two being ANNALS OF A QUIET NEIGHBOURHOOD (Hurst & Blackett 1867) and THE VICAR'S DAUGHTER (Tinsley 1872, same style binding as this). It takes place in the English seaside village of Bude (the father of the family, a vicar, is serving as interim pastor there), and is the result of a MacDonald family vacation there. This is a near-fine set (spines slightly faded as always with maroon, just a hint of wear at the tips, minor bubbling of the cloth on Vol I). Wolff (4304) had only a set in the secondary binding, without hinge decoration or publisher's name); Sadleir did not have a copy at all. Housed in an open-back case. The half-title of Vol I is signed by George MacDonald (actually, MacDonald inscribed it to someone, but the inscription… Read more

Description:
1911. London: Gall and Inglis, n.d. [1911]. Original green cloth with pictorial spine, with front cover illustration onlay. Second (and first one-volume) Edition of Henty's first book. Agnes Ashleigh is unexpectedly bequeathed a fortune -- but the two sisters of her benefactor have other ideas... A SEARCH FOR A SECRET was initially published by Tinsley in 1867 as a three-decker -- consisting of probably no more than 300 or 400 copies; that edition is now extremely scarce, one of the toughest of all Henty first editions to find. This one-volume edition did not appear until 44 years later, after Henty's death. This copy is in green cloth, as opposed to the red copy cited by Newbolt (we have also had blue); in this copy there is gilt on the top edge only (some have all edges gilt). This is a bright, near-fine copy (endpapers cracked, 1915 Sunday School attendance prize bookplate) -- of a title we do not see very often. Newbolt 1.2.

Description:
1850. [in the gift binding] Boston: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1850. Original brown cloth elaborately stamped in gilt on the spine and both covers, all page edges gilt. First Edition, special gift binding, of this collection of verse best known for the trochaic ode "The Building of the Ship," which concludes with the famous apostrophe to the Federal Union, "Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State!...". As described in detail by Blanck, copies were bound (without priority) in drab boards with printed spine label, in standard brown cloth, and also in "cloth gilt" or "cloth gilt, extra" -- one of which this is, with elaborate gilt designs on both covers and on the spine, and with page edges gilded. Blanck cites five colors of cloth used for both "gilt" bindings, but not this color -- brown. There is no preliminary ad catalogue in any of the "gilt" copies. The volume is unusually bright, in very good-plus condition (a bit of wear at the spine ends and at the lower fore-corners). With a January 1, 1850… Read more

1895. Kipling, J. Lockwood. With Illustrations by J. Lockwood Kipling, C.I.E. London: Macmillan and Co., 1895. 2 pp undated ads. Original blue cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all page edges gilt. First English Edition (published three days after the American) of the sequel to THE JUNGLE BOOK, which had been published the year before. It continues with more tales of Mowgli that exemplify "The Laws of the Jungle" -- with illustrations by John Lockwood Kipling, Rudyard's father. This was the second of the four Kipling gift books bound similarly by Macmillan, with SOLDIER TALES and CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS coming out the following two years respectively. This is an attractive, near-fine copy (volume slightly askew, spine gilt less than bright, but no foxing and essentially no wear); the front flyleaf bears an inked "Xmas 1895" signature. Richards A85; Stewart 132.

Description:
1923. London: Privately Printed for Subscribers only by T. Werner Laurie, 1923. Original parchment-backed boards with spine label, with dust jacket. First Published Edition, which is to say the Limited Edition -- being one of 1000 numbered copies signed by Conrad (this being #475). This was Conrad's dramatization of his 1907 novel of the same name, preceded by a 52-copy private issue ("... in Four Acts", Canterbury 1922). For this signed edition, it was decided to combine the short third act into the second (as Act II Scene III): thus the reduced number of acts. The play had been a flop; Conrad later observed, "I was amused by their [the critics'] touching unanimity in damning the play. It was like a chorus of parrots.". This volume is in fine condition, with the duplicate spine label still bound in at the rear; the dust jacket is very good-plus (a few short tears, one small chip at an upper corner of the spine, spine sunned as always). Cagle A54b.

Description:
1915. [inscribed to Llewelyn Davies] Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1915. Original dark blue cloth. First American Edition of this collection of six short stories. The English edition had been published in 1908, and in the same year one of the stories, "The Duel," was published alone by McClure of New York (as "The Point of Honor"). A few months later McClure went under and was bought out by Doubleday -- but since Doubleday could not acquire the copyright to most of the other five tales (because they had already been published in England), he was in no hurry to publish this volume -- until the success of CHANCE in 1913 prompted him to do so (hence the seven-year delay of the American A SET OF SIX). All of this undoubtedly prompted a small printing, making this one of the scarcer American editions of Conrad. In his "author's note" Conrad expresses his satisfaction at having this tale restored "to its proper home and surroundings," rather than cutting down the American edition to "A Set of… Read more

Per the author's note, "It was expected that this book would be included in my 'Collected works' now in course of publication, but unforeseen delay in the date of publication has made this impossible." This copy is in brown buckram (others are in green, no priority). It is a fine, bright copy (the usual offset darkening of the endpapers) of this handsomely printed and bound book; its leaves remain unopoened, in fact. Included is the 1909 dust jacket, remarkably whole and clean, though there is one closed tear on the rear panel. Blanck 1127.

No reader of THE SHADOW-LINE will ever forget the first mate and the silent crew of the schooner which had such mysterious difficulty in passing latitude 8 degrees 20 minutes" [from the ads].

Description:
1899. London: Grant Richards, 1899. 2 pp undated ads plus 12 pp ads dated 1899. Original purple cloth. First Edition of this largely autobiographical novel, documenting the tension between the protagonist's poetic self and his bourgeois parents. Sharp had grown up in the Scottish Highlands, where at an early stage he acquired a vein of mystic pantheism. His family kept trying to guide him along conventional paths, such as that of an attorney's clerk in Glasgow and a bank clerk in London, but he kept seeking to write poetry and to roam about the mystical forests. Ultimately (beginning a few years before SILENCE FARM was published), Sharp began writing his more poetic or romantic works under the pseudonym "Fiona Macleod"; it is widely surmised that after the turn of the century "Fiona" was no longer simply a pseudonym but rather had become a separate personality, a sexual alter-ego, within Sharp. SILENCE FARM is sought as the book that best conveys Sharp's own… Read more

1892. [from Swinburne to Meredith] A Tragedy. London: Chatto & Windus, 1892. 1 preliminary page ads plus 32 pp ads dated Oct 1891. Original dark blue-green cloth. First Edition, which consisted of only 1250 copies, of Swinburne's only verse play in contemporary speech. This copy is inscribed by Swinburne on the half-title, simply "From the author." The book bears the Box Hill bookplate of the famous Victorian author George Meredith. Meredith and Swinburne had been friends for several decades; during the early 1860s Swinburne lived for awhile at the center of Pre-Raphaelitism, the Cheyne Walk abode of Dante Gabriel Rossetti -- where Meredith lived as well. It turned out to be a difficult arrangement... ...Things grew worse. Meredith was revolted by Rossetti's gargantuan breakfasts, bacon surrounded by a circle of eggs. Swinburne knocked [William] Morris into a cupboard and smashed Rossetti's china. With a new acquaintance, Simeon Solomon, he [Swinburne] romped naked… Read more

1841. illustrative of Every-Day Life and Every-Day People. With Twenty Illustrations by George Cruikshank. New Edition, Complete. Philadelphia: Lea & Blanchard, 1841. Original blind-stamped dark brown cloth with gilt spine vignette. First American Combined (and first American Illustrated) Edition -- later (1841) printing. The first and second series of SKETCHES BY BOZ were published in 1836-1837 first in the UK and soon after by Carey Lea & Blanchard of Philadelphia. Following that, on both sides of the Atlantic the two series were combined, with plates by Cruikshank, and issued first in monthly parts (in 1838-1839) and then in cloth in 1839; this is Lea & Blanchard's second printing of that 1839 combined edition. This copy is in the original cloth, and is in very good condition (a bit of wear at the spine ends, one short marginal tear on a plate). Smith p. 23 (he notes this copy -- with New Bedford bookseller's ticket).

1875. Now First Published in Complete Form. Sold only by Subscription. Hartford, Conn., and Chicago, Ill.: The American Publishing Company, 1875. Original blue cloth decorated in black and gilt. First Edition, second issue (without "From Hospital Days" on p. 299, a brief piece that appeared in the first issue, then was discovered not to have been written by Twain -- and also without the duplication of the p. 119 footnote). A curiosity of this book is that on the spine the title is reversed, SKETCHES OLD AND NEW. Twain's next book after this, bound similarly, would be THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER (1876). This is a bright, near-fine copy (with slight wear at the spine ends, as is often the case); the front endpaper bears the bookplate, ink-stamp, and November 1875 signature of a resident of St. Paul Minnesota. McBride p. 35; Blanck 3364.

Description:
1837. illustrative of Every-Day Life and Every-Day People. Being a Continuation of "Watkins Tottle, and Other Sketches." Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Blanchard, 1837. Original drab boards with rose cloth spine and printed label. First American Edition, consisting of 1,250 copies issued in February 1837. These are the twelve pieces that had been published in England two months earlier as "The Second Series" of SKETCHES BY BOZ. (As is evident from this book's sub-title, this Philadelphia firm had published the ["First Series"] of SKETCHES BY BOZ as WATKINS TOTTLE and Other Sketches, nine months earlier.) Later in 1837, Carey Lea & Blanchard reprinted this volume, with the addition of "The Tuggs's at Ramsgate" and "The Pantomime of Life," under the title THE TUGGS'S AT RAMSGATE AND OTHER SKETCHES. This is a very good copy (there is wear along the edges of the spine, and the spine label is rubbed but wholly legible -- but this extremely fragile volume has held up very well for the past 180+ years);… Read more
