  • first

Ward, Lock & Co. London. 1888. FIRST EDITION in book form of the first Sherlock Holmes novel and the Author's first book. 8vo. (7.3 x 5.1 inches). Published the year before in Beetons Christmas annual. Green & Gibson A1, a.i. (second impression). Publisher's preface with missprint 'youuger', para 2, line 3. ------- Bound in early (circa 1890's) half vellum with red morocco label, ruled and lettered in gilt. Marbled paper on boards. Plain white endpapers. Bound without the printed wrappers and advertisements. Six line illustrations by Charles Doyle, (the Author's Father) throughout the book. Previous owner name on the title page and some light foxing to the first and last few pages and occasionally on some page margins and the fore edge but overall a very good bright copy throughout. Whilst a copy in original wraps would be preferable, an early binding is the next best thing. A highly desirable true rarity of English literature.

New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons / The Knickerbocker Press, 1927. Half-Leather. Very Good/No Jacket. Corners a bit rubbed, boards faintly soiled, ink date and owner bookplate of Robert N. Cherry on front flyleaf. 1927 Half-Leather. iv, 325 pp. 8vo. No binder's ticket, but appears to be a contemporary custom rebinding: blue leather spine and corners over blue cloth, gilt titles and rules, top edge gilt, new end sheets. "The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is the traditional name for the unfinished record of his own life written by Benjamin Franklin from 1771 to 1790; however, Franklin himself appears to have called the work his Memoirs. Although it had a tortuous publication history after Franklin's death, this work has become one of the most famous and influential examples of an autobiography ever written. Franklin's account of his life is divided into four parts, reflecting the different periods at which he wrote them.
