New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, 1859. Probably the FIRST EDITION. 206 x 130 mm. (8 1/8 x 5 1/8"). xvi, 17-208 pp., [4] leaves (ads). Probably the FIRST EDITION. Publisher's original blind-stamped blue cloth, gilt titling and vignettes on spine and front cover showing sewing implements. 118 illustrations and eight four-panel foldout plates of needlework patterns (the plates printed alternately in blue, red, and green). Front free endpaper with neat ink inscription of Mrs. H. B. Ranney and with embossed stamp of Marion B. Spicer. Boards lightly chafed, joints and extremities just slightly rubbed, a couple of leaves with short marginal tears (no loss), two plates folded at a slight angle, causing edges to protrude, but still an extremely attractive copy (of a book almost always found in middling to poor condition), very clean and fresh internally, and in a scarcely worn binding. As the title promises, this is indeed a complete book of instruction, organized alphabetically from "applique" to "wire-work,"… Read more

With frontispiece portrait of the queen, and four photographs of the Trianon. Spine slightly sunned toward a pleasing dark blue-green, one leaf with three-inch tear from fore edge into text due to rough opening, otherwise a fine copy with only trivial imperfections, the bright, attractive binding unworn. Written by the former keeper of the Museum at Versailles, this account tells the story of the small pleasure palace built on the grounds of Versailles, primarily for the use of the royal ladies.

Publisher's limp vellum, gilt design on upper cover, flat spine with gilt titling. In the original glassine jacket (lacking most of spine) and original cardboard slipcase, slightly worn. Dreyfus 54. A breath of browning just to untrimmed edges, otherwise A PRISTINE COPY, well protected for 90 years by its original jacket and slipcase. The verse of Thomas Beedome (d. 1641) includes love poems, elegies for such figures as his friend John Donne and Gustav Adolphus of Sweden, and religious works. Somewhat in the manner of Donne, they were published in 1641 after his death, and a pirated edition came out in 1657. Thereafter they languished until Meynell took an interest in them and edited them for this printing. The Nonesuch Press was founded in 1923 by typographer and book designer Francis Meynell (1891-1975) with the help of his… Read more

Tiny bump to one corner and insignificant paper tear to another, dust jacket with chip to tail and split along one fold, faint offsetting to free endpapers from binder's glue, otherwise a pristine copy internally. This is the third work by Irish novelist, critic, and dramatist George Moore (1852-1933) published by the Nonesuch Press, and according to an advertisement quoted by Dreyfus, it was "originally conceived as a general introduction to his 'works'; but it grew in his mind to the stature of a separate book.

Original boards covered in marbled paper in muted tones of rose, blue, and cream, parchment spine and tips, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed and UNOPENED. 11 elegant full-page illustrations and three vignettes by Thomas Lowinsky. Dreyfus 48. Tiny dent to head of spine, otherwise A NEAR-MINT COPY, clean, bright, and unread. Described in its prospectus as "the airiest and most charming of all Voltaire's romances," this fable, set in an exotic land, reveals the frothy, précieux side of Voltaire's complex personality. Lowinsky (1892-1947) has cleverly illustrated the tale with willowy figures sporting the towering hairdos and plunging necklines of Voltaire's own time and place, to suggest that the frivolity of the story reflects homegrown decadence. This was the first of four books he illustrated for Nonesuch; his style is reminiscent of that of Beardsley.

This attractive printing is the last of the Nonesuch Press' limited editions, containing 37 poems by the poet, printer, and founder of the press, Francis Meynell (1891-1975). According to Dreyfus, "Many of the new verses in this volume . . . had been revised since their appearance in newspaper. FM once called Nonesuch 'a happy synthesis of my two fervours, poetry and print.'

Dreyfus 73. A little offsetting from patterned paper turn-ins onto free endpapers, spine just slightly sunned, otherwise pristine inside and out. This is an appealing private press edition of the first sonnet sequence written in English. Sir Philip Sidney (1554-86) was a poet, traveller, courtier, adventurer, and more in his very short life, which ended when he was fatally wounded in a conflict with the Spanish at Zutphen. Just as Petrarch had composed a series of ardent sonnets dedicated to the elusive Laura, Sidney penned 108 sonnets, in which the poet Astrophel celebrates, woos, hopes for, and despairs of, the love of Stella. The work influenced both Spenser and… Read more
