        HILLINGDON HALL; OR, THE COCKNEY SQUIRE; A TALE OF COUNTRY LIFE. By The Author of "Handley Cross."

      London: Henry Colburn, 1845.. London: Henry Colburn, 1845.. Three volumes. Original forest green cloth, decorated in blind, spines lettered in gilt, edges untrimmed. Bindings faintly spotted and edgeworn, toe of first spine badly snagged (2 cm, with no loss), some marginal smudges and such as consistent with editorial use, else a good, bright set, in half morocco slipcase. Ownership signature of Rebecca Lightup in each volume. A proof copy of the first English edition, occasionally marked "Author's Proof," but in fact an in-house set of sheets, marked up by a proof-reader, with corrections to spelling, punctuation, pagination, imperfect leading and more, on about 75 pages. This, the third of Surtees' popular sporting novels, features once again his most famous creation, the 'jolly, free-and-easy, fox-hunting grocer,' Jorrocks, who buys a manor and runs for Parliament. The novel, a satire on the Anti-Corn League, had been serialised in 1844 in the NEW SPORTING MAGAZINE, a publication Surtees had helped found, and also appeared in a New York edition in that year. Proof copies of Victorian three-deckers survive only infrequently. In this set, some gatherings are marked "R" as read, two noting more specifically "Read Sept. 22 F.W." A further gathering bears the head-note "M.W. Author's proof. read back." The changes in this gathering are more substantial than elsewhere, altering for example "an order was despatched" to "a messenger was despatched" (vol. II, p. 116), and modifying the spellings of the name "Tompkins" (p. 105). Though the hand is that of a proof-reader, it is most likely that it reflects authorial corrections made to another proof set. SADLEIR 3163.

        The Raven; in The American Review: A Whig Journal of Politics, Literature, Art and Science

      New York: Wiley and Putnam. New York: Wiley and Putnam. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING, of one of the most celebrated poems in American literature. Published under the pseudonym "Quarles", "The Raven" brought Poe instant literary fame, quickly becoming one of the most discussed and recited poems in the country (although it did little to improve Poe's consistently dire financial situation). Note: The appearance in the American Review is the accepted first edition; the publication in the New York Mirror on January 29, 1845 was printed from advance sheets of the American Review.) The volume also includes Poe's story "Some Words with a Mummy" (pp. 363-370), and his poems "The Valley of Unrest" and "The City in the Sea" (pp. 392-3). The Raven, in The American Review: A Whig Journal of Politics, Literature, Art and Science. Vol 1, pp. 143-45. New York: Wiley and Putnam, 1845. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter morocco over marbled boards. The whole volume (Jan- June 1845; title page, index, 656 pages) offered. Occasional foxing and toning (as always); The Raven generally clean with only a few spots of foxing. Rubbing and general wear to contemporary binding. Rare, particularly in a contemporary binding.

        Nye Eventyr [New Fairy Tales]

      , 1845-1848. 1845-1848. first edition. The Original Stories That Catapulted Andersen to FameANDERSEN, Hans Christian. Nye Eventyr. Kjøbenhavn: C.A. Reitzel, 1845-1848. First edition, complete, two volumes (collections) bound together, of Anderson's second series of fairy tales, the first issue of Collection Two, the second issue of Collection One. Small octavo (6 1/4 x 4 in; 157 x 103 mm). Collection One: 47, [1, blank]; 68; 52 pp. Collection Two: 72; 60 pp. Two leaves, comprised of table of contents and dedication page to Collection Two, have been misbound out of sequence. Otherwise, complete with half titles for each volume, both shared title pages, both shared contents leaves, all dedication leaves, all half titles for each fairy tale, and all five regular title pages. Contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards. Marbled edges. Some light scattered foxing and toning, and an occasional inkspot. Otherwise a very nice copy. Housed in a quarter morocco clamshell case.A work of extreme scarcity with OCLC/KVK recording only a handful of copies in libraries worldwide, and with possibly only one other example, the Klein copy (1980), coming to auction within the last thirty-three years of ABPC records (Sotheby Hodgson's catalogue note vague and incomplete). These stories were originally issued in parts; very few have survived in that state. The publisher, Reitzel, collected the individual parts in their original printings, added tables of contents, and published them in anthologies as here.The importance of these stories, here - staggeringly - in their first edition, cannot be underestimated. They have become deeply embedded in the Western world's cultural consciousness, as timeless as our memories of childhood. More to the point, however, is that, unlike Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm, who were compilers and talented interpreters of traditional folk stories in their respective cultures, in this second series of Andersen tales, the stories are wholly original, the product of a brilliant imagination, featuring characters of great love and yearning who, misunderstood and misfits in a cruel world, have become transcendent heroes for humanity of all ages. The stories have become the cornerstones of Western children's literature, the characters eternal psychological archetypes."For his second collection, Nye Eventyr (New Fairy Tales), Andersen wrote some of his most important and famous stories. He moved away from traditional folk material towards creating tales that came from his imagination. The words ‘told for children’ were omitted from the new title as Andersen sought to engage adults and children alike. He had found a genre in which he had a unique voice" (British Library Online Gallery).The Stories:Volume One1. The Angel2. The Nightingale3. The Sweethearts4. The Ugly Duckling5. The Fir Tree6.

Bindings faintly spotted and edgeworn, toe of first spine badly snagged (2 cm, with no loss), some marginal smudges and such as consistent with editorial use, else a good, bright set, in half morocco slipcase. Ownership signature of Rebecca Lightup in each volume. A proof copy of the first English edition, occasionally marked "Author's Proof," but in fact an in-house set of sheets, marked up by a proof-reader, with corrections to spelling, punctuation, pagination, imperfect leading and more, on about 75 pages. This, the third of Surtees' popular sporting novels, features once again his most famous creation, the 'jolly, free-and-easy, fox-hunting grocer,' Jorrocks, who buys a manor and runs for Parliament. The novel, a satire on the Anti-Corn League, had been serialised in 1844 in the NEW SPORTING MAGAZINE, a publication Surtees had helped found, and also appeared in a New York edition in that year. Proof copies of Victorian three-deckers survive only infrequently. In this set, some gatherings are marked "R" as read, two noting more specifically "Read Sept. 22 F.W." A further gathering bears the head-note "M.W. Author's proof. read back." The changes in this gathering are more substantial than elsewhere, altering for example "an order was despatched" to "a messenger was despatched" (vol. II, p. 116), and modifying the spellings of the name "Tompkins" (p. 105). Though the hand is that of a proof-reader, it is most likely that it reflects authorial corrections made to another proof set. SADLEIR 3163.

        THE ENGLISH STRUWWELPETER or Pretty Stories and Funny Pictures for Little Children. After the tenth edition of the celebrated German work.

      24 pages printed and hand-coloured on rectos only. Original printed paper-covered boards. Quarto. Second English edition. Lacking rear blank endpaper; original covers with loss of some of the printed paper surface and generally cracked and rubbed; spine repaired and some paper restoration to covers; juvenile scribble on page 20 ['O Dear.']; some spotting and soiling internally, but generally very good and, overall, an acceptable copy of a very early edition. Contained in a morocco-backed folding box. Originally published in Germany in 1845 as Lustige Geschichten und drollige Bilder, with only 15 pages, the book was expanded and renamed Struwwelpeter in 1847. Hoffmann instructed his publishers to issue the book in strong boards but with a frail paper spine, hoping that children would quickly read the book to pieces, and parents be forced to buy another copy; this accounts for the dearth of copies surviving in original boards. As with all genuine copies of early printings, the government's tax stamp appears on the upper board. The book was first published in English in 1848.

        The Works of that Learned and Judicious Divine Mr. Richard HookerIn Three Volumes

      Oxford - The University Press, 1845. Oxford - The University Press, 1845 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An attractive set of anthologies containing the theologicaland scholastic essays from Anglican priest and influential theologian, Richard Hooker. Third edition. Featuring two folding plates to volume one; onegenealogicaltable anda facsimile of notes by Hooker, Cranmer, and Sandys. Collated complete. Hooker's emphases on reason, tolerance and the value of tradition came to exert a lasting influence on the development of the Church of England. In retrospect he has been taken (with Thomas Cranmer and Matthew Parker) as a founder of Anglican theological thought. With an Account of his Life and Death, by Isaac Walton. King James I is quoted by Walton as saying, I observe there is in Mr. Hooker no affected language; but a grave, comprehensive, clear manifestation of reason, and that backed with the authority of the Scriptures, the fathers and schoolmen, and with all law both sacred and civil. Hooker's emphasis on Scripture, reason, and tradition considerably influenced the development of Anglicanism, as well as many political philosophers, including John Locke. This edition is important both for the editorial revisions discussed in Kebles Preface and for the comments that Keble, one of the leaders of the Oxford movement, makes about Hooker. (Cited from the catalogue to The Antiquarian Library Of Emeritus Professor David A. Pailin. )From the private library of theologian and professor of philosophy, David A. Pailin. Complete in three volumes. Condition: Rebound in smart half calf bindings with cloth covered boards. Externally, all volumes are smart with only some light rubbing. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound and bright. Generally clean, although with the very occasional spot and handling mark. Intermittent institutional ink stamps. Neat copperplate ink signature to the original front free endpaper of each volume, as well as David Pailin's bookplate pasted to the front pastedown of each volume. Overall: VERY GOOD, an attractive, crisp set in spite of library stamps..
