WARNER, Charles Dudley (1829-1900).
Harper's Bazaar, October 1897. Loose, 22x15 cm. 26 leaves. Laid into unique 3-piece green and crimson gilt-decorated morocco pull-off slip-case, made by The Adams Bindery in New York [ca.1897-1900], one of the great bookbinderies of early 20th century America. First page lightly foxed. SIGNED by Warner on the final page. Near fine. ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT ESSAY BY CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER, SAMUEL CLEMENS' FRIEND & COLLABORATOR. Autograph manuscript, 26 leaves, of the first two parts of Warner's "Editor's Study" essay published in volume 95, October, 1897 [pp. 798-800], of Harper's Bazaar (part III, a single paragraph review of George du Maurier's The Martian, is not included). On their editorial staff since 1884, this is likely the manuscript Warner submitted to Harper's--though there are minor authorial corrections throughout, otherwise the text appears identical to the published version. Warner penned the "Editors Drawer" from 1884-1892, then took on the aforementioned "Editor's Study". / Part I is both a negative review of Edward Bellamy's Utopian novel Equality, (1897), and a rebuttal of Bellamy's socialist ideas. "Equality is a mischievous book, because it tends to divert the attention from the serious and awful social and political problems we have to solve, and which we should go at like men and Christians, in to the dreams, the impossible fantasies, of feather-headed socialism." / Part II is an extended and somewhat prescient critique of contemporary children's literature, very similar to Harold Bloom's more recent takedown of the Harry Potter series. In it Warner makes t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original autograph letter signed by the author Rudyard Kipling, on printed stationery from Rock House, Maidencombe, St. Marychurch, where he and his wife lived between 1896 and 1898. The letter reads in full: "Dear Watson, Many thanks for your note and the contract, which certainly opens a new and safe method of burglary. I always said that the Oriental thief can give his white brothers many points in the game. The necklace he chose was amethyst & pearl - not emerald & pearl - and it is a beauty. I should very much like to be able to afford a white pearl necklace. Do you suppose the price would be very heavy? I should like to have an idea on this subject. Bombay must have been a ghastly place this winter. My sister's letters gave me some of the news as she learned it, and it seems to have been fearful. Always sincerely yours, Rudyard."

CULE, William Edward (1870-1944), [DOYLE, Arthur Conan, misattributed].
Boston, MA: Multum in Parvo Library, 1897. [Short story] PIRATE EDITION. Small pamphlet (11 x 8cm), pp.16. Eight sheets, folded once, single staple to fold. Decorative border to first page, printed advertisements to bottom of final page. Some browning to paper stock, rust to staple. Rare. Fine. An obscure short story generally attributed to Doyle until the recent efforts of Professor Marlena E. Bremseth uncovered the real author, William Edward Cule, who first published his story in the January 1897 edition of Chambers' Journal. Seemingly the Multum in Parvo Library was a dubious organisation, headed by Albert B. Courtney, which engaged in pirating within a consortium of other publishers who reprinted their own and others books with various minor changes. This is one of the most flagrant examples of their practices. Not in Green and Gibson. Marlena E.

H.G. Wells - The Invisible Man - First Edition London: C. Arthur Pearson, 1897. First edition, First Printing with 1897 on the copyright page, the first page mislabeled '2' instead of '1' and two pages of adverts in the rear. Original red cloth with front cover lettered in gilt and decoratively stamped in black with the design of the Invisible Man in his dressing gown. Fading to the spine and light soiling to the cloth. The book is slightly cocked and the hinges are tender. Bookplate of noted English composer Dora Knatchbull on the front pastedown. This is a first edition of one of Wells's most famous science fiction tales. Although the first edition only sold well for a single month, the title secured Wells financially for life, bringing him not only a constant flow of royalty cheques, but money from the Hollywood film adaptation of 1933 starring Claude Rains. It was Wells's only book publication by Pearson - fortunately, as Pearson's books are today known for their poor quality of bindings and paper employed. A cornerstone of any great science fiction collection. Please see the other first editions I have listed. [Attributes: First Edition]

STEVENSON, ROBERT LOUIS. St. Ives. Being the Adventures of a French Prisoner in England. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1897. First Edition, First Printing preceding the English edition. Laid in is a one page Autograph Letter Signed by the author, Robert Louis Stevenson to S.S. McClure, publisher of McClure's Magazine which serialized Stevenson's novel, St. Ives, prior to book publication. Written from Valima in Samoa, on September 7, 1894, just weeks before Stevenson's death on December 3rd. "...Pursuant to a note from Bunter, I have the pleasure to send you an epitome of St. Ives. Without doubt it was a task! And I fear it will not increase the interest of any human being, but you must be judge of that, and employ it accordingly or not, as your better wisdom shall suggest. The Magazine seems to me to go on swimmingly. Please remember me to your wife and the twins. Ever yours, R.L. Stevenson...." At the time of his death, Stevenson had left St. Ives unfinished, and Arthur Quiller-Couch wrote the last few chapters to complete the work using Stevenson's notes and the outline he had sent to McClure. Near fine bright copy in original cloth with very slight rubbing with one of Stevenson's very last letters and a remarkably historic one showing that his efforts did indeed prove of great interest allowing one of his most interesting works to be completed.
