      1894. first edition. The Scarce First Issueof the First Book Entirely Illustrated by RackhamSigned by the Author on Title-Page[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. HOPE, Anthony. The Dolly Dialogues. Reprinted from the Westminster Gazette. London: Westminster Gazette, 1894. First edition, the scarce first issue (July 1894) with "Dolly" as running headline and "price one shilling" at the extreme lower right corner; subsequent issues have "The Dolly Dialogues" as running headline and the price location shifted upward. Small octavo (7 3/16 x 5 9/16 in; 182 x 142 mm). 111, (1, blank) pp. Four black and white illustrated plates in half-tone by Rackham at pp. 32, 42, 82, 104. Yellow pictorial wrappers, blue lettering and illustration. Mild wear and soiling to wrappers, especially on spine. The title-page is signed in black ink "Anthony Hope Hawkins". An excellent copy.Only two copies of the first issue have come to auction within the last thirty-five years: The first had chipping, the second lacked the backstrip."The stories that make up 'The Dolly Dialogues' were published in the Westminster Gazette from Oct. 1893 to June 1894 and were not illustrated. In July 1894 they were collected and issued as the Westminster Gazette Library - Vol 1, with 4 no. illustrations by Rackham, and this is the first book wholly illustrated by him" (Riall)."Rackham had already illustrated several titles which are much sought after by collectors...The four pictures in The Dolly Dialogues are in the semi-photograhic style in heavy line and wash..." (Gettings, p. 102). According to Hamilton's biography, Rackham used his younger sister, Winifred, as model for the cover illustration.Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins, better known as Anthony Hope (9 February 1863 ?- 8 July 1933), was an English novelist and playwright. He was a prolific writer, especially of adventure novels but he is remembered best for The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) and its sequel Rupert of Hentzau (1898). These works, "minor classics" of English literature, are set in the contemporaneous fictional country of Ruritania and spawned the genre known as Ruritanian romance. Zenda has inspired many adaptations, most notably the 1937 Hollywood movie of the same name.Riall, p. 2. Latimore and Haskell, pp. 1-2.

        ADRIFT IN THE PACIFIC

      1894 - New and Cheaper Edition. Illustrated. London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company, 1894. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black. "New and Cheaper Edition," issued five years after Sampson Low's first U.K. edition, in a similar binding (showing Briant diving into the water from a giant kite) and with the same illustrations. In this tale, a dozen young boys are shipwrecked without adults on a desert island, and struggle to survive during the two years they await rescue; they divide into two antagonistic groups, with quite different philosophies. This adventure has often been cited as a precursor to William Golding's rather similar LORD OF THE FLIES (1954).~This tale was first published in 1888 as DEUX ANS DE VACANCES, and in English in early 1889 by George Munro in his cheap wrappered "Seaside Library," as A TWO YEARS' VACATION. In November 1889 Sampson Low published ADRIFT IN THE PACIFIC, a hardbound illustrated ("two parts in one") version, being a different translation.~This copy has been recased within its original binding, preserving the original light yellow endpapers (reinforced at the inner hinges) -- but is otherwise near-fine (very minor rubbing of the spine gilt).
