London: Digby and Long, Publishers, n.d. [1889?].. Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1] 2-322, nineteenth-century three-quarter black leather and gray cloth, brown leather title label affixed to spine panel. First edition. There are two printings (issues?) of this Digby Long edition, this one with "[Now first published]" above the title (as here), the other with the subtitle, "A Story of Russia and Nihilism." A U.S. edition issued April 1, 1890 as volume 1, number 16 of Collier's "Once-a-Week Library," a subscription series, which may have appeared in between the two Digby Long printings. This is one of two books written by Eastwood. This is a presentation copy with an inscription by Eastwood at the upper right corner of the half title page: "To George Edmunds / with the kind regards / of the author / Nov 5th / 89." If the date of the inscription is correct, then it preceded Collier's edition, although the British Library assigns a date of 1891 to this edition (which is not dated by the publisher). This copy in three-quar ... Read more

A FEARLESS INVESTIGATOR

[Eaton, Frances U.]

  • Quantity available: 1
Chicago: A. C. McClurg and Company, 1896.. Octavo, pp. [1-5] 6-353 [354: blank] [355-360: publisher ads], original decorated blue cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in black and gold. First edition. "A young man, suddenly bereft of his inherited fortune and recuperating from typhoid fever at his sister's house, goes along with her enthusiastic interest in spiritualism and enjoys or endures various adventures, including a spirit journey to Jupiter where he meets Hermes Trigmegistus. The story ends with his wedding -- to a woman made of flesh and blood, not protoplasm." - Robert Eldridge. A bit odd that this escaped the main fantasy bibliographers (Bleiler, Day and Reginald). Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume II, p. 5. Locke, Voyages in Space V27. Wright (III) 1967. Just a touch of rubbing to spine ends and along lower edges, a nearly fine copy of an attractive book.

THE BEST EUROPEAN SHORT STORIES OF 1928

Eaton, Richard (editor)

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Dodd, Mean and Company, 1929.. Octavo, pp. [i-ii] iii-v [vi] vii-viii [ix-x] 1-309 [310: blank], original red cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, fore-edge untrimmed, bottom edge rough-trimmed, decorated endpapers. First edition. Modeled on the successful series of annual anthologies of American short stories edited by Edward J. O'Brien starting in 1915, Eaton began his own similar series for European stories in 1922. At first he split material up into two volumes: French and Continental (i.e., all other non-English languages used on the continent). In 1928 he consolidated everything into a single "European" volume. The venture did not survive the crash of the following year, but the ten or twelve volumes produced remain excellent sources for minor authors of the period, and, in the earlier volumes (omitted in the present consolidated title), for reference material about contemporary publishing. The current volume collects twenty-one stories from Norway, Armenia, Sweden, Spain, Czechosl ... Read more
