This copy has black and not yellow endpapers and lacks the advertisements mentioned by Gilbert but correct on all other points. , Waite, Arthur Edward (1857-1942) was an English mystic and historian of occultism who, after the death of his father, was raised by his devout Roman Catholic mother. However after the death of his sister in 1874 Waite was drawn to spiritualism and from there to theosophy, alchemy and the occult. Alphonse Louis Constant (Eliphas Levi) was little known outside of France until he was quoted extensively by Blavatsky in 'Isis Unveiled'. It was this that led Waite to begin a translation of Levi's major work, eventually suggesting to the Theosophist A.P. Sinnet that he produce an anthology of Levi's writings. Sinnet introduced Waite to the publisher George Redway and so Waite began his long association with Redway., 8vo 8" - 9" tall, xliii [i] 349 [3] pp .

        Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

      NY: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1886. First edition, which preceded the London edition by three days. This classic tale of dual personalities, and the duality of good and evil within each human being, has captured the imagination of readers for generations. The story was made into a play almost immediately after the book's release, and it has been adapted into numerous films beginning in 1908. Actors such as Richard Mansfield, John Barrymore, and Spencer Tracy have taken on the Jekyll/Hyde role, embracing its challenging exploration of the human psyche. In scarce original yellow wrappers; spine and edge of covers have faded to tan, minor chipping at extremities, else a very fine copy of a quite fragile book. Housed in a black cloth chemise and in gold-colored morocco slipcase. An excellent copy of this high-spot in literature, which is rare in this condition.

        Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The

      London: Longmans, Green, 1886. First Edition. Cloth. Fine. Small, slim 8vo: [8],141,[1]pp, printed by Spottiswoode and Co, New-Street Square, London. Late nineteen-century maroon cloth, spine lettered and tooled in gilt, brown end papers, all edges marbled, bound without the final advertisement leaf (as often) for the second edition of "A Child's Garden of Verses." Fine, save for light rubbing to joints. First British Edition, published 9 January 1886 (four days after the U.S. edition) in both salmon-colored cloth and beige paper wrappers. Our copy is probably a bind-up, in period cloth, of the paperbound issue. Handsome bookplate of James J. Waring affixed to front paste down (Waring, first full-time professor of medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, donated books from his personal collection that became the basis of the University's Waring History of Medicine Collection). Prideaux 17. Haycraft Queen Cornerstone. Stevenson's novella, the "prototype of all stories of multiple personality, transformation and possession" (Encyclopedia of Science Fiction), deals with Dr. Henry Jekyll's attempts to isolate man’s dual nature. The tale "is not simply a gruesome story of ghastly deeds in the fog-bound streets of Victorian London, but also an unsettling study of the unstable nature of social and psychological identity. . . . In presenting Jekyll and Hyde as two aspects of the same person, as inseparable and mutually dependent personalities within the same mind and body, the transformation represents a potent dramatisation of the masks worn by members of respectable Victorian society to hide the hypocrisy that was always present in their everyday lives. . . . The novel [also taps] into a deeper source of fin de siècle anxiety regarding the fear of racial degeneration, calling into question the very nature of social behaviour by enacting the return of the repressed savage which, it implies, is still present in every one of us. . . . To Victorian readers, such a suggestion carried an especial resonance. Since the late 1850s, Darwin’s formulation of the origin of mankind not by divine providence, but through the more haphazard process of natural selection had posed a serious challenge to the idea of humanity as a race set apart from the brutes, by suggesting that its development was governed by the same laws as that of apparently lesser creatures. . . . The use of a fantastic metamorphosis to dramatise a return of the repressed in order to emphasise the unstable and transient nature of dominant notions of civilized behaviour and conventions is also a fundamental characteristic of the gothic revival in late-Victorian literature – and Stevenson’s novella is regarded as a central text in the study of that movement."

      William Paterson Edinburgh: William Paterson, 1886. 248 x 165 mm (9 3/4 x 6 1/2").Three volumes. Translated by Henri Van Laun, with an introduction, notes, and a life of the author. QUITE PLEASING THREE-QUARTER VELLUM over sturdy textured cloth boards BY TOUT (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), flat spines heavily gilt in compartments in antique style featuring large and intricate central fleuron, three brown morocco labels on each spine, marbled end papers, gilt tops. Title vignettes and 21 fine etched plates (including frontispiece portrait in first volume) by Adolphe Lalauze. Large, attractive engraved bookplate of Hilda Leyel signed "A M H 1940" in each volume. Top corners of volume I slightly bumped, turn-ins a little spotted (trivial spots and superficial marks elsewhere to covers and spines, particularly to the labels), otherwise an excellent set, with no significant wear, and with the gilt still bright and attractive. Slight offsetting from plates, but very fine internally. This is a finely bound, well printed, and attractively illustrated edition of Le Sage's great satirical picaresque romance, which appeared originally in 1715-35. The very appealing plates here are characterized by rich and charming details of personal adornment, household furnishings, and objects from everyday life, and the interiors especially have a design, depth, and realism that are impressive. Lalauze (1838-1906) was a major figure in what Ray describes as a revival of etching as an art form in France. This revival was partly stimulated by the founding of an etcher's society, and the renewed interest in etching was carried into book illustration by a number of publishers who specialized in luxury editions. Executed by a first-rate binder, our set in elaborately gilt vellum with morocco labels is unusual in design and at the same time unusually pleasing. Previous owner Hilda Leyel (1880-1957) was a noted herbalist and devoted student of Nicholas Culpeper's 17th century work on medicinal plants, which she used as a source for her book, "The Magic of Herbs," publisihed in 1926.

Contemporary navy blue calf, some marks, triple blind stamped rules and cornerpieces, spines a little dull, a.e.g., a very good set. Perhaps Ruskin's finest work, detailing the treasures of Venice and analysing its architecture. The chapter on Gothic Architecture influenced William Morris, who wrote "In future days it will be considered as one of the very few necessary and inevitable utterances of the century." "...there has never been more than one opinion about the noble eloquence and haunting beauty of the descriptive passages, or about the permanent value of his work among the earlier masters of Venetian painting and sculpture and the earlier school of Venetian architecture..."

The jacket has been miraculously and almost invisibly backed by the master book restorer, Bruce Levy. A spectacular presentation copy, as rare as can be in the original dust jacket.Of the twenty-four copies to come to auction within the last thirty-six years only four were in Binding A, only one possessed the dust jacket, and not a single one was signed."Mr. Bret Harte has written a children's Christmas book, with the alluring title of "The Queen of the Pirate Isle," which will be illustrated by twenty-five [28] drawings by Miss Kate Greenaway, printed in colors in the text. The result of this combination of one of the most English of artists with one of the most American of authors will be awaited with unusual interest" (The Nation, Vol. 43, No. 1102, August 12, 1886, p. 138).The Queen of the Pirate Isle is a short story set in and around a mining camp in gold-rush California - a milieu that features in almost all of Bret Harte's work. The four young protagonists - imaginative Polly (the "Queen"), her cousin Hickory Hunt, their Chinese "page" Wan Lee, and neighbor-boy Patsey - are all children, have extremely vivid imaginations, and Harte relates their adventures playing pirate - in fantasy, dream, and reality.Bret Harte lived in London from the 1880s through his death in 1902. Lady Alfred Paget, née Cecilia Wyndham (1830-1914) "a woman of remarkable intellectual powers" (NY Times obituary, May 4, 1914), was a lady in waiting to Queen Victoria (who was godmother to one of the Paget children), and owned Chateau Garibondy on the Riviera in the south of France where she entertained royalty and the intellectual cream of Great Britain. She likely met Harte at one of his popular London lectures, always attended by a distinguished audience.BAL 7337. Sharnhorst 902. Schuster and Engen 165.1f.
