The Master of Ballantrae

Stevenson, Robert Louis

London: Cassell & Company, 1889. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. First Issue with the July ads at the rear. Near Fine. Original publisher's binding remarkably bright, lightly bumped at the corners, a negligible amount of fading at the spine. Square and firmly bound, a spot of toning on the front endpaper, incredibly clean and tight with some pages remaining uncut. Stevenson's classic novel that plays on the evil twin trope when Henry Durie effectively becomes his thought-to-be-deceased brother, the true Master of Ballantrae, James. Twice adapted to film, first in 1953 starring Errol Flynn and again in 1984 starring Michael York.

The Master of Ballantrae

Stevenson, Robert Louis

London: Cassell and Company, Ltd, 1889. First edition. Near Fine. First issue with July, 1889 ads. A Near Fine copy of the book, with the spine panel a trifle darkened and slight wear at the spine ends and corners, but well above average. Inner contents in excellent condition, without repair or restoration. Stevenson's exciting novel of familial conflict and adventure set amidst the Jacobite rebellion of the mid 18th century. Stevenson wrote the book while travelling extensively in the US and the Pacific, including to San Francisco, Hawaii, and Tahiti, and indeed the conclusion of the book features an exciting and memorable confrontation in the American wilderness. Though Stevenson was highly regarded in the late 19th century -- and was one of the most popular authors of the period -- with the rise of modernism his star began to fall. In the second half of the 20th century, however, his reputation was rehabilitated, with such famed authors as Nabokov and Borges counting themselves fans. The Master of Ballantrae was adapted into a 1953 film, starring Errol Flynn. "...we have no hesitation in saying Mr. Stevenson surpasses all his former performances. In our opinion there are very few novels which so nearly approach perfection." (Contemporary review in the Times of London). Near Fine.

THE MASTER OF BALLANTRAE

Stevenson, Robert Louis

1889. A Winter's Tale. London, Paris, New York & Melbourne: Cassell & Company, 1889. 4 pp undated ads plus 16 pp ads dated July 1889. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in black. First Edition, published on the day before Scribner's American edition. Stevenson freely acknowledged that his inspiration for this novel was Robert Marryat's THE PHANTOM SHIP (1839), which he had recently read. RLS began writing BALLANTRAE in Saranac Lake in 1887 but did not finish it until his first South Seas voyage in 1889. This copy has the usual (proper) July 1889 ads; the front free endpaper lists fourteen titles, where some copies have a list of ten or twelve (priority uncertain). This is a bright, very good-plus copy (spine slightly darkened, rear endpaper cracking -- and see note regarding title page below). This is not a scarce book, but it usually turns up in miserable condition; we have never seen a truly fine copy. Beinecke 487; Princeton 41A. Provenance: armorial bookplate of C.H. Waterland Mander, who wrote numerous accounts about a century ago, such as a 1918 History of the London Guild of Cordwainers; in the upper margin of the title page, he also affixed a small version of the family arms, plus his printed address.
