DONOVAN (Dick [i e , J E Preston Muddock] )
By Dick Donovan Author of 'The Man-hunter,' 'Tracked and Taken,' 'Caught at Last,' 'A Detective's Triumphs,' 'Vidocq,' etc[.] London, Chatto & Windus, 1897. Advertisement leaf precedes half-title; 8pp. text-paper advertisements, probably printed conjugate with prelims., followed by publisher's inserted catalogue, 32pp., at ens, dated Feb. 1897 and advertising this volume as 'shortly'; pp.[viii]+304+8; vertically fine-ribbed navy blue cloth ruled and elaborately blocked silver on front cover and spine; end-papers printed with leaf-and-frond pattern in olive green; top- and fore- edges uncut, lower-edges rough-trimmed. Very slight rubbing to cloth at extreme head of spine (affecting the top 2mm); two leaves of catalogue opened a little roughly, and catalogue lightly enbrowned; nonetheless a virtually fine copy with none of the usual oxydation of the silver blocked on the spine. Copies are also known in which the back cover is blocked with the publisher's monogram device in blind. They have the same catalogue, and were presumably of simultaneous issue. Most of the stories are cases of the celebrated Russian detective as related to fellow detective Dick Donovan. The last story, "The Clue of the Dead Hand," features detective Peter Brodie and has a Scottish setting. It tells of a murder and a simultaneous mysterious disappearance at Corbie Hall, "a strange, weird sort of place..." that has "an eeriness about it...calculated to make one shudder." As much a rationalized ghost story as a detective story, it also involves male impersonation. Glover and Greene, Victorian Detective Fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

UPTON, Bertha
Longmans, Green & Co., London 1897 - Oblong folio (213 x 278 mm). COMPLETE. Oddly collated thusly: 23, [1], 24*-25*, [1], 26-[56], 56*-57*, [57]-62, [1] pp. With 32 chromolithographs and numerous textual vignettes. Page 41 with 2" tear, a few other short tears in lower margin. Bound in original illustrated boards, green cloth spine (lower endleaf replaced in facsimile), binding soiled and quite worn along corners and spine, a well used copy, priced accordingly. This is one of the most enchanting Children's Books we have ever seen. From the creators of the famous "Golliwoggs" series, the superb chromolithographs depict all varieties of anthropomorphic plants engaged in human activities such as gardening, cooking and dancing. These fantastic illustrations are simply a joy to behold. "The Vege-Men's Revenge" relates, in verse and image, the tale of a young girl who ventures into the land of the "Vege-Men" where she taunts the vegetable inhabitants; she is taken captive by the natives who "plant" her in the ground; the girl is watered and cared for by the vegetable community and she takes root and grows into numerous manifestations of vegetables (including carrots, beets, tomatos, etc.) -- these are subsequently harvested by the citizens of the vegetable kingdom, who prepare a great feast, which is followed by a night of wild dancing and merrymaking. "The Vege-Men's Revenge" is one of only two children's books by Florence Kate Upton (1873-1922), the British scenarist-illustrator, and her mother Bertha Upton (1849-1912) that were not part of the famous Golliwoggs books.
