[Los Angeles]: Kanthos Press, 1963. One of 2,000 copies. 430 x 320 mm. (17 1/4 x 12 3/4"). [46] leaves.Edited and translated by John Ciardi. Book designed by Leonard Baskin. One of 2,000 copies. Publisher's black buckram, gilt lettering on upper cover and flat spine. In the original gray cardboard slipcase. With 36 lithographs in black & white by Rico Lebrun, and FOUR ORIGINAL, SIGNED LITHOGRAPHS laid in at front. List of plates also laid in at front. In mint condition. In this series of lithographs, Italian-American artist Rico Lebrun captures the essence of souls in torment: distorted, faceless human bodies writhing in misery, trapped in their own sins, eternally distanced from God, forever without hope. Born in Naples, Lebrun (1900-64) immigrated to the United States at age 24, and built a successful but unsatisfying career as a commercial artist. In 1938 he gave up business and moved to Southern California to create and teach art. His artistic influences include the Italian Renaissance… Read more

ALL BUT ONE OF THE VOLUMES UNOPENED. Illustrated throughout. Spines slightly affected by light (each spine evenly so, but with differing resultant shades), a little wear to extremities, bottom corner of one leaf torn off with loss of a couple of letters, another leaf with small hole and the same degree of loss, other trivial imperfections, but an excellent set of a readable edition from a major publisher, with sturdy bindings that show almost no wear to the joints and an essentially unread text that obviously shows almost no signs of use.

London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1844. FIRST EDITION. 200 x 124 mm. (7 7/8 x 4 7/8"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Very attractive contemporary cadet blue three-quarter morocco over pale blue watered silk, raised bands, spines handsomely gilt in compartments with floral sprig centerpiece and volute cornerpieces, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. With 10 engraved portraits. Top inch of silk on one board faded by sun, one plate with closed one-inch fore-edge tear (not affecting image), other minor internal imperfections, but A VERY PRETTY SET, especially fresh and clean inside and out, and with bindings that are remarkably bright. Poet Richard Hengist Horne (1802-84) patterned this collection of critical essays about contemporary writers after the acclaimed collection of essays "Spirit of the Age; or Contemporary Portraits," published by his idol William Hazlitt in 1825. Among the writers included in the work were Dickens, the Brownings (Mrs. Browning is given credit for contributing at least one of… Read more

Pleasing early 20th century full polished calf by Morrell for John Wanamaker (stamp-signed in ink on front free endpaper), raised bands, spine gilt in compartments, red and green morocco labels, all edges gilt. Original cloth back and covers bound in at end. With hand-colored color frontispiece, engraved title, and two plates, and several black and white vignettes by Nicolson. A touch of rubbing to edges and tops of joints, a few very mild indentations on covers, light offsetting from illustrations and a couple of minor marginal blemishes, but still an excellent copy with only very trivial wear. This amusing work is a direct imitation of Dickens' enormously successful Christmas Books, mimicking their appearance as well as their format and themes.

Description:
[Mt. Vernon, N. Y.]: William Edwin Rudge, 1930. 171 x 110 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). Two volumes. Publisher's full green morocco designed by Frederic Warde, stamped in gilt, smooth spine with gilt rules and lettering, housed in dark green cardboard slipcase. Each volume with frontispiece portrait. Spines uniformly sunned to brown, covers with few natural imperfections to leather (appearing as a dark streaks), a hint of wear to extremities, contents pristine. This is an attractive set of Dickens' perennially popular Christmas classic, apparently printed as holiday gifts for the friends of William Edwin Rudge. The Rudge family of printers included four generations with the same name; the present work was almost certainly printed by the second William Edwin Rudge, who oversaw the press in its heyday and worked with luminaries such as Bruce Rogers and Frederic Goudy.
