Description:
Boston: Hilliard, Gray and Company, 1837. First edition. Original printed paper wrappers. Spine rolled, causing small splits to paper at foot of spine; minor loss to crown of spine. Contemporary gift inscription to the header of the title: "Hannah Austin from her friend A. Joy." Light scattered foxing throughout, else unmarked. A fragile and scarce work, presently the only copy on the market.Considered the best work by the poet, essayist, and critic Louisa Jane Hall. Benefitting from her father's scholastic career as the founder of the Boston Lyceum for Young Ladies as well as his personal commitment to humanistic education, Hall was exposed from an early age to the classics and to the works of Shakespeare and Milton. "She was an industrious scholar, and the thoroughness of her study shows itself all through her works" (Perley). As an adult, Hall began to write dramatic poems focused on biblical women. Miriam was the first, written ten years before its publication and released with the author's deep… Read more

London: John W. Parker, 1847. First edition. Fine. Recent blue paper wraps. 61 pages with half and full titles present. Pages hand numbered in pencil on upper right corners, else unmarked. Scarce in institutions and on the market, the present copy is the only one on the market, and OCLC reports that of the 9 known copies only 2 are held in the U.S."The public mind is at length fully awakened to the necessity of educating the people...Ignorance is no longer considered safe or creditable." On this premise, educational activist Hamilton argued that while England had firmly established the important of education for citizens, it had not yet succeeded in fully enacting it. "His Practical Remarks on Popular Education (1847) pointed to the inadequate provision of elementary education in England. He advocated additional state support for the existing school societies, an enlarged curriculum, more attention to teaching girls...and improvements in the training, status, and stipends of teachers" (ODNB).… Read more

London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, 1815. First edition. Rebound to style in quarter calf over marbled boards with gilt and morocco label to spine. All edges speckled red. Collating complete: [4], 354. Light, uniform toning throughout, else a clean and unmarked copy of this important educational work by a leader of 19th century pedagogy who encouraged schools to give equal access to students without regard to class or sex. It is the only copy on the market.Writing the present work toward the end of her career, Hamilton acknowledges that by now, "the question concerning the wisdom and eligibility of teaching the children of the poor to read and write seems by general consent determined in the affirmative...in the country in which I now write, the benefits of education have long been enjoyed by the labouring classes." In this sense, her work and that of her colleagues has been a success. Yet another hurdle remains. "If we admit that the system of education adopted by parochial schools at… Read more

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1929. First edition. Near Fine. Publisher's cloth binding stamped in black and yellow. Lacking the rare dust jacket. Scarce in this condition, with the spine and boards a brilliant, unfaded red. A bright, clean copy with no internal markings. The first of Hammett's novels, Red Harvest drew on his true-to-life experience as an operative for the notorious Pinkerton Detective Agency. Narrated by Continental Op, who becomes a recurring character in Hammett's work, the novel explores humans' violent tendencies when power and money are on the line. Arriving in town too late to meet his newspaper contact, who is murdered, Continental Op decides nevertheless to stay. He discovers that rival gangs have begun to loosen the control of the local industrialist (and father to the newspaperman) who had long been considered the most powerful figure in town. And as he begins to uncover how deeply corruption runs in the town, even implicating the police force, Continental Op becomes a… Read more

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1931. First American edition. Very Good +. A presentable copy of Hammett's fourth novel. Book Very Good + with the spine a bit toned and some spotting to the rear board; extremities a bit rubbed. Otherwise, internal contents are in excellent condition. Lacking the dust jacket.The Glass Key follows a gambler, Ned Beaumont, who gets in over his head when he becomes involved in a murder investigation. It is considered by many to Hammett's best work. It was a major influence on the hard boiled genre from one of its greatest practitioners. The book was adapted into a radioplay starring Orson Welles in addition to a well reviewed 1942 film with Veronica Lake, Alan Ladd, and Brian Donlevy. Writing in The Guardian, author James Ellroy said of the book: "The Glass Key is Hammett's last great work of fiction. It's a model of economical storytelling. It's sombre and invigorating in equal measure. It's a predator's vision of the American jungle, and a book with a deep and troubled… Read more

Description:
London: Leonard Smithers and Co, 1899. First English language edition. Finely bound in full Morocco with raised bands on the spine, gilt dentelles, marbled end-pages and the original cloth cover bound in the rear. Complete as issued with half-title, 16-page advertisement at the end and everything in between. Pages toned and slightly brittle at the rough fore and lower edges. First published in 1890 as "Sult" and first translated into English here by Mary Chavelita Dunne under the pseudonym George Edgerton.A somewhat autobiographical novel of a destitute writer living in Oslo on a constant search for nourishment; a prototype for later novels of alienation, poverty and loneliness. Remarkable for its psychological maturity, focusing on the main character's sanity while highlighting a series of irrational, self-destructive acts. The book is considered one of the foundations of modern, 20th century literature, influencing such heavyweights as Ernest Hemingway, Franz Kafka, Thomas Mann, Henry Miller,… Read more

London: Burns & Oates, Ltd, 1908. First edition. Publishers red cloth, front cover ruled and lettered in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, plain endpapers. Spine ends a little worn, slight staining to upper cover . Quarto (9 7/16 x 6 3/4 inches; 240 x 171 mm.). Collating xiv, 78. Including monotone frontispiece and ten full- page monotone plates. Light marginal foxing, otherwise an excellent copy of this extremely unusual Louis Wain title.This is a fascinating little book with very unusual and atypical drawings by Louis Wain. The frontispiece The Wise Old Woman of the Wicklow Hills depicts a witch looking over her cauldron whilst two cats, one black and one white, look on... is at first glance more in the style of the Victorian artist, Sidney Sime. In fact throughout this volume only one of the eleven illustrations Little Fiss and the Wicked Enchanted Bull (facing page 40) is remotely similar to the Louis Wain that we all love, admire and enjoy.Dale, 93.

Nevertheless, A Brief History of Time shows one of the great physicists writing to share the wonders of the universe with any intellectually intrepid reader. Fine in Fine dust jacket.

The story follows the tribulations of an aging and suddenly unlucky fisherman, Santiago, as he tries to catch a gigantic marlin in the Straits of Florida. Ultimately, Santiago's story is an existential metaphor through which Hemingway explored in a seemingly simple way the dignity and biblical nature of an old man's trials at the end of life. It was a massive success. The book was originally published in full in an issue of Life Magazine,… Read more
