        THE WESSEX NOVELS - Remarkably Fine, fresh and bright Complete Set of Eighteen Volumes, Purchased new in Dorchester with Original Stationers Blind-Stamps (Works, Writings)

      Osgood, McIlvaine, London 1895 - Hardy, Thomas. THE WESSEX NOVELS. [Complete In XVIII Volumes]. London: Osgood, McIlvaine & Co., 1895-1913. First Uniform and Complete Edition of Hardy's prose. All eighteen volumes uncut and uniform in original publisher's dark green cloth; gilt monogram on front boards, t.e.g. An etched frontispiece in each volume by H. Macbeth-Raeburn. Blind-stamp reading "W. E. CASE, STATIONERS, DORCHESTER" on the front-free endpaper of seven of the titles. This run of perfectly matched bright unrubbed copies (just a few stray scrapes), a REMARKABLY FINE SET, appears to have been put together by the same individual during the 1890's (while Hardy was living just down the road at Max Gate). This is the FIRST TRUE COLLECTED EDITION of Hardy's works and it contains three first editions: JUDE THE OBSCURE (found here with all first issue points), THE WELL-BELOVED, and A CHANGED MAN. This edition is of further importance as every novel, for the first time, had been extensively revised by the author who also provided each with a new and important preface. Initially published in the I-XVI volume Wessex Novels, 1895-96, THE WELL-BELOVED (Osgood, McIlvaine, 1897) and A CHANGED MAN (Macmillan, 1913) followed on in identical format as volumes XVII and XVIII. While the easily found Macmillan 1912-1914 WESSEX EDITION is generally lauded as the first collected writings with the text exactly as Hardy wanted it for posterity, and Macmillan's MELLSTOCK EDITION of 1919-1920 is deservedly praised for its glamorous and lush 37-volume signed limited edition, the Osgood set is by far the rarest of the three in FINE ORIGINAL CONDITION. Highly desirable as such, inexplicably underrated and undervalued by collectors, dealers, and institutional libraries for over a hundred years. Purdy pp. 279-282. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

All time-travel stories since owe a debt to Wells, none has become so acclaimed." - Bleiler (ed), Science Fiction Writers, p. 26.

        The Savoy. An Illustrated Quarterly [complete in 8 issues].

      London: Leonard Smithers, 1895 and 1896., 1895. Complete 8 issues, with the suppressed prospectus, Christmas card, inserts, etc. Eight vols. Quarto. First two vols bound in pink paper boards, front boards with Beardsley illustrations in black ink, titles in black to spine. Vols three to eight bound in soft blue paper covers, with Beardsley illustration and red titles to front cover, titles in black to spine; the illustration of vol five signed "Giulio Floriani" is a pseudonym for Beardsley. The prospectus, dated December 1895, is bound in pink soft paper covers, and contains the Christmas card and other inserts. With a slipcase bound in quarter black morocco over black cloth boards, with raised bands and gilt titles to spine, containing a stiff cloth-covered chemise. The prospectus shows well, bright and largely clean, with minor tears to top and bottom of joint, some bumping to corners. Vol one is chipped and worn to corners, spine ends and joints, front board and spine somewhat tanned. Vol two is bright and clean, front joint starting, minor bumping to corners and spine ends. Vols three to eight in blue paper are all attractive, though rubbed, with bumping to edges, small tears to spine ends, covers coming away from spines of vols three, six, and eight. All vols are internally clean, plates sharp, with no hints of foxing. One outward facing joint of the chemise is starting, and the slipcase shows some wear, including two worn corners and some scratches to base. This is a handsome set, notable for its completeness, with the inclusion of the prospectus and the elusive Christmas card. A collaboration between several leading figures of the Decadent movement, including Beardsley, Symons, and Smithers, designed to give the remaining members of the Decadent movement an outlet for thier publications as the public mood turned against them following the trial of Oscar Wilde. Indeed, it was conceived as a rival to The Yellow Book, from which Beardsley had been fired in 1895. The first number included submissions from George Bernard Shaw, George Moore, Havelock Ellis, W. B. Yeats, and Max Beerbohm, and the periodical continued to attract serious literary figures until the end of 1896, when having won admiration and 'made warm friends and heated enemies' alike, it ceased publication after only a year's run.

        Syr Perecyvelle of Gales

      Kelmscott Press, Hammersmith 1895 - Edward Burne-Jones. Hardcover. One of 350 paper copies. A significant presentation copy, inscribed by William Morris to his sister-in-law "to Elizabeth Burden from William Morris May 13th 1895." This was one of only eleven copies of the title inscribed by Morris, and it is listed in William Peterson's bibliography as one of the copies he examined (A33). Elizabeth Burden (familiarly known as Bessie) was Jane Morris's younger sister, and was with her when the teenage Jane was first spotted by Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones in 1857. Bessie was an expert needlewoman and worked for the Morris firm. She was very involved with Morris tapestries, and may have engraved at least one of the woodblocks for the aborted illustrated edition of The Earthly Paradise. She was a constant presence in the family circle and a regular recipient of Kelmscott Press books. This volume was based on the text of The Thornton Romances: The Early English Romances of Perceval, Isumbras, Eglamour, and Degrevant - a favorite of Morris from his college days. Bound in quarter holland (blue paper boards with linen spine). Title printed in black on front board. Printed in black and red inks with Chaucer type on Flower paper. With a beautiful frontispiece illustration by Edward Burne-Jones, and Morris ornaments and initials throughout. An exceptional copy in fine condition. Prospectus inserted. 98 pages. PRI/011516.

        The Tale of Beowulf sometime king of the Folk of the Weder Geats

      Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1895. Very Good+. One of 300 paper copies (8 copies were printed on vellum). His daughter May wrote later that William Morris thought Beowulf was the first and the best poem of the English race. He began a translation of scholar Alfred John Wyatt's rendering of the poem in February 1893. It was finally completed and passed to the press in December 1894 and published in February 1895 (Peterson bibliography A32). Printed on lovely Perch paper in black and red inks with the text in Troy type. Shoulder and side notes, argument, list of persons and places, and glossary in Chaucer type. There are beautiful borders, ornaments and initials designed by Morris throughout. The borders were used only once again, in the Jason. Bound in original full limp vellum with brown silk ties.

Five of the six fragile ties are intact; the other tie is torn off but inserted in the book. Interior pages are bright and clean, with a slight discoloration to the bottom edge of pages 77-78.

        The Pilgrim's Progress

      John C. Nimmo, London 1895 - Quarto, Gilt lettered and decorated cover and spine. Designed & finished by Leonard Mounteney at the Cuneo Press Bindery. Bound in lustrous full dark blue crushed morocco, with nine gilt-ruled frames; spine in six panels with gilt horizontal rectangular frames. Gilt ruled turn-ins with blue and white illustrated endpapers. Top edge gilt. Housed in a white-fleece lined blue cloth slipcase. Leonard Mounteney, one of the top exhibition binders of his time, began at Riviere & Sons of London, then moved on to the Donnelley Bindery (Lakeside Press) in Chicago, and then the Cuneo Fine Binding Studio in Milwaukee. The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come; Delivered under the Similitude of a Dream is a 1678 Christian allegory written by John Bunyan. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature. Samuel Johnson said that "this is the great merit of the book, that the most cultivated man cannot find anything to praise more highly, and the child knows nothing more amusing." Three years after its publication (1681), it was reprinted in colonial America, and was widely read in the Puritan colonies. Because of its explicit English Protestant theology The Pilgrim's Progress shares the then popular English antipathy toward the Roman Catholic Church. It was published over the years of the Popish Plot (1678 - 1681) and ten years before the Glorious Revolution of 1688, and it shows the influence of John Foxe's Acts and Monuments. Bunyan presents a decrepit and harmless giant to confront Christian at the end of the Valley of the Shadow of Death that is explicitly named "Pope": [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Three Novels (Trilby, Peter Ibbetson, The Martian)

      1895 - DU MAURIER, George. Trilby. WITH: Peter Ibbetson. WITH: The Martian. London and New York: James R. Osgood, McIlvaine and Harper & Brothers, 1892-98. Three volumes total. Square 12mo, mid-20th century three-quarter blue calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, red and burgundy morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. $950.George du Maurier’s three novelsâ€"early English edition of Peter Ibbetson, first English one-volume edition of Trilby and first edition of The Martianâ€"with numerous illustrations by the author, uniformly and handsomely bound by Frost.Already famous as an artist for Punch, du Maurier in 1891, “after discussing his chances with his loyal friend Henry James, accepted a proposal to write a story for Messrs. Harper, the well-known firm of American publishers. The result was Peter Ibbetson, partly based upon recollections of his own early life, blended with a plot turning on a fantastic theory of the sympathetic relationship of dreams… The ample illustrations by the writer, in his most attractive style, contributed greatly to [the book’s] success, which was sufficient to induce the publishers to commission a second story, to be published in monthly installments in the pages of Harper’s. The first chapters of Trilby appeared in January 1894.” Trilby is best remembered for the sinister hypnotist Svengali. The novel would be filmed many times, most notably in 1931 as Svengali, starring John Barrymore. Some readers regard it as a key influence on Gaston Leroux’s 1910 novel, Le Fantome de l’Opera. “It was inevitable, after the immense popularity of Trilby, that liberal offers should be again made to du Maurier for a successor to it… [And so he] completed the whole text of The Martian, together with a portion of the illustrations, the first installment of which, in Harper’s, appeared a few days after his death” in 1896 (DNB). It tells the story “of a sensitive but mysterious Spiritualist who turns out to have been a Martian all her life” (Clute & Nicholls, 357). Early English edition of Peter Ibbetson (the first English edition published in two volumes in 1892; see Sadleir 1674a, Wolff 1950). First English one-volume edition of Trilby (Wolff 1952c).

        The Poetical Works.

      Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, , 1895. 3 volumes, octavo. Original limp vellum, yapped edges, silk decorations at head and foot of joints, fore edges uncut, issued without ties. Housed in a custom brown linen slipcase. Woodcut title page, borders, and foliate initials. Vols. II and III with some rubrication. Some faint streaking to spines, a little toning to fore edges, internally fresh and bright. An exceptional set. First Kelmscott edition, one of 250 paper copies, from an edition of 256 (six vellum copies were also issued). The book was printed using Golden type, the first of three types designed by William Morris himself; it took Edward P. Prince almost a year to cut the punches, between January and December 1890. As an experiment the usual silk ties were not used; this is the only Kelmscott book so issued. A beautiful set, featuring "some of the loveliest lyrics in English, together with longer poems unsurpassed in beauty and grandeur ... from the pen of this visionary, half-unearthly man" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 559).

[i] (polychrome title by Buk), [i] (cast in Russian, German, and French), 260 pp. Text in Russian, German, and French. Facsimile of autograph dedication to Nadezhda Rimskaya-Korsakova to head of title. Upper wrapper with titling in Russian and French, identifying the piano-vocal score as the composer's work.

Melkinsh" in ink to front endpaper. Manuscript text underlay and director's annotations in English in both pencil and ink to much of the work. Binding somewhat worn, rubbed, and bumped. Uniform light browning and other minor defects. . First Edition of the second version. Rare. Davis pp. 257-259. Neef p. 411. WorldCat (one copy only, at the National Library of Israel). Additional copies in several European libraries. The first version was published by Rahter and Büttner, Hamburg, in ca. 1881. The basic plate number, found on all non-blank pages, is 979. Several pages have other plate numbers added, referring to offprints: 232 for the overture; 1106, 1109, 1112, 1115, and 1119 for the first five numbers of act 1; 1123 for the final chorus (Hopak) of act 1; 1126 for Levko's song at the beginning of act 3 (part of no. 13a); 1130 for the chorus of the water nymphs (no. 13b). All plate numbers other than 979 appear in a smaller font. The present copy was obviously marked up by a stage director for a production in English. The opera has rarely been performed in English; Sigrid Neef in Pipers Enzyklopädie des Musiktheaters mentions only productions by the Opera Club Oxford (1931) and in Cardiff (1959).

        The Architectural History of Harrow Church Derived from a Study of the Building

      Wilbee, J. C., Harrow, England 1895 - Contemporary full morocco binding of a dark brown color, and with hubbed spine in six panels. Boards with gilt rules and small gilt decorative motifs, and with small diaper design in blind to the fields. Spine states, in fairly crisp, gilt-stamped letters, "Harrow Church, Gardner." Spine with elaborate and crisp gilt-stamped design. Generally unbumped spine head and tail and with slightly bumped lower corners, The leather binding is exceptionally clean and almost entirely free of scratches, and with minor rubbing along the gutters. The spine is lightly and evenly sunned to a medium brown color. The text block is firmly bound in. 9.25 x 6 inches. With handsome marbled paper pastedowns and FEPs. T.E.G. With xii and 95 numbered pages, including an introduction, the main text, a glossary of technical terms employed, and a postscript. With XL full-page B&W plates plus Plate XLI, a pristine pull-out architectural ground plan of the church, The Church of S. Mary Harrow on the Hill. Also with 15 additional B&W illustrations. We can find no foxing or other blemishes, save for an instance of off-setting. The book is astonishingly clean overall. Front pastedown with the stunning late 19th century armorial bookplate of Harrow School, including the motto "stet fortvna domvs." Near the top of the bookplate is written in a neat ink hand, "E. W. Swan, Term prize for Drawing, 1900' given May 31st, 1900." Hence a presentation copy. Off-setting between p. 72 and the opposite plate, likely due to insertion of a newspaper clipping or similar. Neatly pasted on to a blank rear FEP is a newspaper clipping, "Harrow Church 850 Years Old." Above the clipping in a neat ink hand is, "Times, Jan. 17th 1944." Neatly pasted on to the opposite blank rear FEP is a B&W photo of Harrow Church, doubtless from the same newspaper article. Finally, neatly pasted on to the rear pastedown is a very small -- and somewhat bizarre -- news magazine clipping, "A Railway Victim." The clipping pertains to an interesting gravestone in Harrow-on-the-Hill churchyard regarding a hapless man who was run over and killed by a railway train in 1833, shortly after rail was introduced to Harrow and vicinity. Else a very clean copy. A Very Good copy. Scarce in any condition. An altogether engaging and handsome volume and a pleasure to hold in hand.
