Description:
London: William Heinemann, 1898. First edition. Near Fine. An excellent, Near Fine copy of Wells' famous science fiction thriller. First state with the publisher's monogram on the rear board and the correct 16-page publisher's autumn 1897 catalogue at the rear. Completely unrestored, with very few faults to speak of. Throughout his career, Wells was fascinated with man's role in the universe, and about the potential benefits and downfalls that emerged from scientific advancement. Among his novels, The War of the Worlds was groundbreaking and is viewed as one of his best. Considered one of the earliest stories of extraterrestrial life, The War of the Worlds used alien life as a metaphor for colonization and evolution. From its first release, the book captured the Victorian imagination, and it has remained a success; to date it has never been out of print. " A true classic that has pointed the way not only for science fiction writers, but for how we as a civilization might think of ourselves" (The… Read more

New York: Boni & Liveright, 1922. First Edition. Flexible covers. Very Good +. A remarkably well preserved copy of T. S. Eliot's magnum opus. A true first state copy with flexible boards and the limitation number in 5 mm font. Number 134 of 1000, approximately 500 of which were offered in the first state flexible boards. Water with the dropped "a" on page 22 and "mountain" spelled correctly on page 41. Very Good+ with slight sunning to the spine rubbing to the boards, but all gilt bright and complete.

It is the breviary of post-war disillusion, 'the hope only of empty men', written in Switzerland after a near break-down, pruned of some connecting passages (including a ship-wreck) by Pound, and as Adrienne Monnier wrote of Pelléas, hard to listen to without… Read more

Description:
Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black, 1871. Centenary Edition. Twenty-five small octavo volumes (7 3/16 x 4 3/4 inches; 182 x 121 mm). Illustrated with twenty- five engraved frontispieces and vignette title-pages. Bound ca. 1871 in full contemporary tan calf, covers double-ruled in gilt. Spines with five raised bands, decoratively tooled in gilt in compartments, with red and green morocco gilt lettering labels, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled. Auction lot sticker on front board of Volume 7. Gilt on spines a little dull, still a VG+ set in a contemporary binding."Scott's influence as a novelist was incalculable; he established the form of the historical novel, and, according to V.S. Pritchett, the form of the short story. He was avidly read and imitated throughout the 19th century, not only by historical novelists such as Ainsworth and Bulwer-Lytton, but also by writers like Mrs. Gaskell, G. Eliot, the Brontës, and many others, who treated rural themes, contemporary peasant life, regional speech,… Read more

Description:
London: Macmillan and Co, 1895. First Edition. Fine. Blindstamped "Presentation Copy" on the title page, otherwise unmarked. A Fine copy with very few faults to nitpick, first leaf of chapter one opened a bit roughly.Telling the tale of Willie Winkie, the young son of a military Colonel, Kipling's children's book depicts the dangers to be found in the British colonies as well as the opportunities those spaces pose for bravery and growth. Though the narrative begins with Willie's youthful rebellion against the rigid rules of the military camp in which he lives, it traces his successful attempt to right his wrongs and rescue those put at risk. In the end, Willie claims his adult name -- notably Percival, the same name as a knight of the Round Table -- and Kipling declares "And in this manner did Wee Willie Winkie enter into his manhood." A charming coming-of-age. Fine.

Description:
New York & Chicago: Fleming H. Revell Company, 1895. First edition. Fine. Original green publisher's cloth binding with silver and gilt to spine and front board. Extremely neat contemporary ownership signature of Hepsie A. Adams to front endpaper. Internally clean, complete, and tight. The slightest wear to extremities, mostly at the crown of spine. Released in the same year through the Woman's Temperance Publication Association, scholars note no priority between the two, which appear to have been bound from the same sheets with only the title page distinguishing them. Revell Company had a reputation for partnering with women's clubs and activist groups to ensure wider distribution of political works. This autobiographical work by leading American women's activist Frances Willard has appeared only twice at auction, with the most recent over 30 years ago in 1987."Frances Willard, leader of the Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU), was a complex and energetic figure in American feminism and… Read more
