    Abandoned EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY # 368 by Verne, Jules [Gabriel]

    London: J. M. Dent & Sons Limited, 1924. First Edition Fifth Printing . Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY # 368, 50 FULL PAGE ILLUSTRATIONS, Illustrator not stated. Introduction by Ernest Rhys. Translated from the French by W. H. G. Kingston. Near fine blue cloth. Bright Gilt titles and shield decoration. Slight use. Very good brown DJ. Some wear and tear, chipped spine head. [n.d., 1909], 12mo, xiv, 237pp. [1], Temple Press 2/1/2/N Seymour. "The present romance, the second in the Mysterious Island triad, was originally issued in Paris with the title of L'Abandonne. Jules Verne's list of stories already ran them to some twenty volumes; a number which has since grown to almost Dumasien proportions. L'Abandonne, like its two companion tales, run its course as a serial through the Magasin Illustre of education and recreation, before its issue as a boy's story-book. Its success in both forms seems to have established a record in the race for popularity and a circulation in both the French and English fields of current literature." RG4

    The Way of all Flesh MODERN LIBRARY # 13 by Butler, Samuel

Very good scarce blue limp croft leather. Gilt titles Some wear, crease to spine, previous owner name inside. Scarce Toledano binding # 1 Toledano Endpapers. Half-title page Boni Liveright C5 Catalog of 66 titles Bound in. [Book Fall 1918, n.d.], 16mo, [7], 2-410pp. Butler died in 1902 & Flesh was published in 1903 (20 years after it was written). "Samuel Butler (4 or 5 December 1835 - 18 June 1902) was an iconoclastic Victorian author who published a variety of works. Two of his most famous pieces are the Utopian satire Erewhon and the posthumous novel The Way of All Flesh. He is also known for examining Christian orthodoxy, substantive studies of evolutionary thought, studies of Italian art, and works of literary history and criticism. Butler also made prose translations of The Iliad and The Odyssey which remain in use to this day. His influence on literature, such as it was, came through The Way of All Flesh, which Butler completed in the 1880s but left unpublished in order to protect his family. And yet the novel, begun in 1870 and not touched after 1885, was so modern when it was published in 1903, that it may be said to have started a new school, particularly in the use of psychoanalytical modes of thought in fiction, which "his treatment of Ernest Pontifex [the hero of Butler's novel] foreshadows."

    British Private Press Prospectuses, 1891-2001 by Butcher, David

    (Risbury, Herefordshire): The Whittington Press (2001), 2001. Limited Edition. Leather. Fine. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. 161 p. No. VII of forty of the deluxe version, out of a total edition of 350, bound in full Oasis leather with endpapers marbled by Christopher Rowlatt, with a separate portfolio of original prospectuses. The book's Introduction points out that an alternate title for this work might have been "The pleasures of private press prospectuses", as these prospectuses themselves have become collectible both as a substitute for the books themselves which are often scarce or rare, and not inexpensive to obtain; and because they offer an insight into "the activities and intentions of the press concerned". The Whittington Press is singularly appropriate as a publisher of the joys of fine press printing, being renowned today for their own publications. The separate portfolio of original prospectuses for this volume includes: Rampant Lions Press (Areopagitica), Chilmark Press (The Mountains), Gwasg Gregynog (Deaths and Entrances), Inky Parrot (The Return of A.J. Raffles), Previous Parrot (An Anamorphic Alphabet), The Old School Press (Catalogue - some plans, no promises), Gregynog (Eros and Psyche - 1935), Tabard Private Press (Book Production Notes), Whittington Press (Fine Papers of the Oxford University Press), Whittington Press (Plans Etc.), Whittington Press (Wallpapers Printed at the Curwen Press), September Press (The Four Gospels), Golden Cockerel Press (Mademoiselle de Maupin), Doves Press (In Preparation - 1914), Celtic Cross Press (Stained Glass Windows), Nonesuch Press (Catalogue - 1928), The Vale Press (The Sonnets of Shakespeare), The Fleece Press (Catalogue), Libanus Press (Portable Pleasures), Golden Cockerel Press (Mr. Chambers and Persephone), Golden Cockerel (Catalogue - 1937), Workshop Press (Fleurons), Inky Parrot (An Avian Alphabet), Red Hen Press (Two Moons), Incline Press (Catalogue), Rhinocerous Press (Catalogue), Stanbrook Abbey (Announcement), Cherub Press (Catalogue), Joshua Heller Rare Books, Inc. (Paper wallet containing an offering of eight items from seven presses - Camberwell, Fleece, Inky Parrot, Libanus, Rocket, Tern, and Whittington). ***DESCRIPTION: Volume is bound in full peach-coloured Oasis leather, marbled endpapers in peach, ivory and gold, frontispiece a wood-engraving by Eric Ravilious from the Golden Cockerel Press "Autumn List" 1931, title page in rust and black, 16 full-page illustrations bound throughout the text and 7 set within the text, three facsimile prospectuses enclosed in a marbled pocket on the rear pastedown; quarto size (approximately 11" tall), pagination: (i)-xii, (1)-147, blank (148), colophon (149), type Poliphilus on Zerkall mound-made paper; limited edition of 350 total, this no. VII of 40 of the de luxe edition. The portfolio containing the specimens is of rust laid paper sides with a gold cloth spine, printed list of contents tipped onto the inside of the front cover, specimens of various sizes. Both are contained within a drop-back box covered in gold cloth and lined with rust laid paper, leather spine label with gilt lettering. ***CONDITION: Volume is fine, with the leather binding smooth, fresh and supple, a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, all illustrations present as called for, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings - crisp, as new. The prospectuses are also fine with perhaps a whisper of edgewear here or there. The porfolio containing the prospectuses and the box containing both items are also fine, with perhaps a hint of edgewear to the outer box. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

"Barchester Towers is the second and most famous of Trollope's series of 'Barsetshire' novels, the first being The Warden (q.v.).

Mrs. Proudie is one of Trollope's greatest character creations." RG4
