Hartford, Conn: Belknap & Warfield, 1892. FIRST EDITION. 248 x 168 mm. (9 3/4 x 6 1/2"). xv, [1], 59 pp. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's brown cloth, covers with blind-stamped borders, gilt titling, smooth spine. Text printed in black, blue, green, orange, yellow, brown, and red. Extremities lightly rubbed, two small stains to lower cover, a touch of browning to edges of leaves, isolated faint foxing, but a fine copy, clean and fresh internally with colors undimmed by time, in a well-preserved binding. This curious volume represents an effort by Congregational minister and biblical scholar Edwin Bissell (1832-94) to make the multiple sources of the Book of Genesis clear to readers at a glance. In the introduction, he explains the various documents from which the text was compiled, and assigns them colors. For example, the two sources that used the name "Jehovah" for God are in black and orange, while the one that used the name "Elohim" is in red. Chapter 14 of Genesis, which appears in only one… Read more

London: Hogarth Press, 1956-8. A PROOF COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION. 215 x 140 mm. (8 1/2 x 5 1/2"). 240 pp. A PROOF COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION. Original brown paper wrappers with Hogarth Press imprint on cover. This version not in Kirkpatrick. Some foxing to edges and into outer margin of text block, rubbing to tailpiece, but still in remarkable condition, the paper wrappers crisp and the text clean and fresh. This is an extremely rare uncorrected proof copy in original paper wrappers of a collection of Woolf's essays. In addition to her famous novels, Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) wrote a large number of essays for journals, and published two collections of these--the "Common Reader" volumes--during her lifetime. Her husband Leonard collected the remaining essays and published them after her death in three separate volumes, the last in 1950. The essays that appear here were overlooked during that compilation, either because of poor record keeping, because they were published without… Read more
