New Arabian Nights.

Stevenson, Robert Louis

London: Chatto & Windus, 1882. First edition, first printing of the short story collection containing Stevenson's first published fiction, considered by many to be his best work with page 155 of second volume misnumbered '55', and 'Maletroit' misspelt 'Maledroit' on page 179. Octavos, two volumes, original green cloth with gilt titles to the spine and arabesque decorations to the front panels, with the 32-page publisher's catalogue at rear of second volume, dated May 1882. In near fine condition. From the library of bibliophile and yachtsman Henry C. Taylor with his bookplate to the pastedown of each volume. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell and chemise case. An exceptional example. A collection of short stories previously published in magazines between 1877 and 1880, Stevenson's New Arabian Nights proved to be a pioneering work in the English short story tradition. The collection contains Stevenson's first ever published fiction, A Lodging for the Night, as well as The Pavilion on the Links which Arthur Conan Doyle characterized "the high-water mark of Stevenson's genius" and "the first short-story in the world".

New Arabian Nights

STEVENSON, ROBERT LOUIS

London: Chatto & Windus, 1882. First Edition. Two volumes; bound with the half-titles by Bayntun in blue polished calf; all edges gilt; rubbed; outer joints weak or splitting; in a custom cloth slipcase. Marvelously entertaining short stories, largely criminous in content (in Queen’s Quorum), including the superb “The Suicide Club” and “The Pavilion On The Links.” Stevenson might have enjoyed a solid reputation on this single book.

New Arabian Nights

Stevenson, Robert Louis

Chicago: Montgomery Ward & Co. Publishers, 1920. An early collection of "sensational" stories by Stevenson, first published by Chatto (England) and Holt (USA) in 1882. Reprinted many times. This is a Very Good (Plus) copy of an interesting and rare edition from the mail order store Montgomery Ward. Starting just prior to 1900 Ward began offering literature as well as their famous catalogs and instruction manuals. Their most popular title was "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" in 1939. With some series a free bookcase came with the purchase of 25 titles. Not all of the publishers engaged have been identified. This particular volume has the look of a trade edition that has had a MW title page tipped in and with MW added to the spine. Rather a nice production and a surprisingly scarce book. Ribbed green cloth binding, beveled, with titling and a decorative lozenge in gilt on the spine. Clean text; iv, 352 pages. Frontis portrait of Stevenson. Title Page printed in red and blue from a different paper stock. Mild bumps and light rubbing to the head and foot of the spine. A very attractive and uncommon book.. . Later Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good (Plus)/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
