London and New York: Macmillan and Co, 1888. Second edition, American issue. 184 x 127 mm. (7 1/4 x 5"). 2 p.l., 229, [1] pp. Second edition, American issue. Publisher's original blue cloth with gilt titling and decoration. Half title with ink ownership inscription, "Kate D. Wilson, Jan. 26th, 189[0]." Front pastedown with bookplate inscribed "Capt. James Hart, Baltimore, 26 Feb. [19]46." BAL 10583; Edel A-31b. Spine slightly rolled, tiny snag at top of backstrip and one at bottom, light rubbing to small portions of the joints and extremities, but still a nearly fine copy, the cloth and gilt especially bright, the hinges solid, and the text with virtually no signs of use.

It opens with the visit to Paris of two young sisters who give an unfortunately forthright interview to a reporter working for "The Reverberator." The novel… Read more

Publisher's original cream-colored paper boards, embossed to resemble a 15th century binding. In the original blue buckram dust jacket. Faint spot of foxing to upper board, one leaf with short tear at head edge, otherwise a very fine copy in close to original condition. This copy of the will of famed Venetian printer Nicolas Jenson (1420-80) was printed in Ernst Detterer's "Nicolas Jenson" typeface, designed to replicate as closely as possible Jenson's original roman type. Detterer studied calligraphy with Edward Johnston, and taught printing history and typography at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he founded the Printing Arts Department. His "Nicolas Jenson" type was designed in 1923, and was expanded into the type family "Eusebius" by Detterer and his former pupil R. Hunter Middleton… Read more
