        THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE (The Exceedingly Fine Estelle Doheny Copy of the First Edition, Two Volumes in Original Cloth)

      London: Smith, Elder, 1886. Hardy, Thomas. THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE: The Life and Death of a Man of Character. In Two Volumes. London: Smith, Elder & Co, 1886. First Edition in original publisher's dark blue cloth, decorated in black, gold-lettered on spine. Ads in both volumes as called for. A FINE, bright set in original untouched condition from the famed libraries of Estelle Doheny and Frank Hogan (bookplates). Both volumes show minor abrasion and blemish to the boards but, remarkably, the dark blue cloth is unfaded making this particular set a condition rarity, one of the finest examples of the first edition that we've handled or seen in thirty-five years of specializing in Victorian Fiction in general and Hardy in particular. Only 650 copies of the first edition were printed and bound in 1886, the rest of the print run of 758 copies left unbound or remaindered. And of these 650 bound copies, those few that survive today generally do so in rebound state, or bearing the ravaged signs of lending library abuse. No so, this superb example. THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE is often lauded as Hardy's most perfectly plotted novel and Michael Henchard holds pride of place as Hardy's best drawn, most complex male character within the author's 14-novel canon, a protagonist worthy of a Shakespearean tragedy. Purdy pp. 50-53. Housed in a matching slipcase. . First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Near Fine.

Light rubbing and cuffing to extremties, bumping to spine ends with a little trivial fraying to head. Very Good indeed. A rather elusive collection of strange and weird tales, this copy made more distinctive by virtue of having been inscribed by the author to the title page.

        Alice's Adventures Under Ground

      London: Macmillan & Co., 1886 Illustrated by the author. First edition, first printing. One of 5,000 copies. Publisher's red cloth, boards lettered and decorated in gilt, all edges gilt, black coated endpapers. A fine copy with extremely bright gilt, small sticker to the rear pastedown. A stunning copy. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote the nonsensical story Alice's Adventures Under Ground under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll for Alice Liddell, who was a frequent subject of Dodgson's revolutionary portrait photography. The text was first published in a suppressed edition by Macmillan in London in 1865 and then by D. Appleton in New York in 1866 as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This volume contains a facsimile edition of the original manuscript text Carroll wrote for Alice Liddell. In his preface, Carroll explains that he published this manuscript twenty years after the first edition of Alice "wholly an afterthought, pressed upon me by the 'perhaps too partial friends,'" and decided to donate the proceeds it generated to hospitalized children. He avers, "I can truly say that no praise of theirs has ever given me one hundredth of the pleasure it has been to think of the sick children in hospitals (where it has been a delight to me to send copies) forgetting, for a few bright hours, their pain and weariness." Notably, while Alice in Wonderland and the subsequent Through the Looking Glass would be illustrated by John Tenniel, Alice's Adventures Under Ground contains Carroll's own illustrations - the earliest depictions of the now iconic characters.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Fine.

The author, Louis Charles Pierre Castellane (1827-1884) was a French military officer and the second son of the Marshal of France Boniface de Castellane, appointed to Algeria in 1837. According to a note from the "Globe" (printed on the verso of the half-title to volume I), Castellane "[at 17 went to Algeria] enlisted as a simple private in a Zouave regiment, and won each stripe at the point of the bayonet, earning his epaulettes as a subaltern in the field whilst fighting under Colonel MacMahon. Some graphic accounts are given of the campaigns in which he took part and of the manners and customs of the troops out there". Gay 801 for the French first.
