AHOUSE A6. Octavo. Original publisher's gilt-pictorial cloth; 412pp + 6p publisher's catalog. Light wear to board edges, else a tight, Near Fine copy with blue-green top-stain just slightly faded.

        Italian Villas and Their Gardens

      New York: Century Club, 1904. First edition. Quarto, original dark green cloth, top edge gilt. Wonderfully illustrated with drawings, photographs, and 26 full-color plates by Maxfield Parrish. In very good condition with some light wear to the spine tips. A bright copy. Edith Wharton's Italian Villas and Their Gardens, a seminal work on garden design, is a testament to the passionate connoisseurship of one of America's greatest writers. A comprehensive look at the history and character of Italian garden architecture and ornamentation, the book explores more than seventy-five villas, capturing what Wharton calls their "garden-magic" and illuminating the intimate relationship between the house, its formal gardens, and the surrounding countryside. "...Parish illustrations, in trademark dreamy, fairy-tale style--seems to dislocate these legendary gardens from time altogether" (Forbes).

        The Winged Hat, 1890

      Goulding, London 1904 - (Chicago 34 II/II; Levy 38; Way 25)Second state of two. Transfer lithograph in black with scraping,printed on fine laid paper with the water mark O.W.P. & A.C.L. There is an impurity in the paper to the left of the arm-see photo.The watermark in the paper suggests that this is a posthumous edition of 55 copies printed by Goulding in 1904. (The stone is preserved in the Hunterian Art Gallery, University of Glasgow.)This is a portrait of his sister-in-law, Ethel Birnie Philip. The sister would have been about 29 years old when Whistler originally drew the plate.(Way states that there were 22 impressions from the first state. This was also issued in The Whirlwind, 1890. ‘Impressions for The Whirlwind were printed by machine from supplementary stones’ ‘ in a somewhat blacker and shinier ink that that used for hand pulled proofs; Whirlwind impressions are therefore generally higher in contrast. The sheet size for the Whirlwind edition should be 284 x 225 mm. There were 500-1000 impressions of this published edition)Image size 179 x 174 mmSheet size 370 x 260mm (14 7/8 x 10 3/8 inches)

The pictorial cover design is by Forbes N. Dixon - the upper side blockd with red lions couchant - blue tongues and claws, and lettered in gilt, and the back is gilt lettered with a gilt rose and crown device. Top edge gilt others uncut.. Near fine state. A beautiful copy.. Limited edition of 700. Folio in fours. pp. viii, 504. 153 plates including 45 black and white - all the rest are in colour. And throughout the text are numerous black and white representations of coats of arms. Slipped in is a review (contemporary but undated) of the book, welcoming its superb quality -ÕMr.Fox Davies has produced a work which is both an accurate and scientific treatise on the subject of armory and a valuable explanation of the unique series of choicest reproductions of heraldic art which the illustrations portrayÕ. Only 700 copies were printed including those for review, complimentary copies and those ordered by the American trade so only about 500 were available for sale in Britain. This is such a heavy book and usually so well used by its owners over the years that a copy in such a good state as this one is rarely found.

        Dracula

      Westminster [London]: Archibald Constable & Co. Ltd [through 1904], 1897. Early Reprint. Hardcover. Near Fine. Eighth and final edition produced by Dracula's original publisher, Constable (after which publication was taken over by William Rider), and only edition bound in this gothic design. 8vo: viii,390pp. Original navy blue cloth, spine and upper cover stamped in gilt and red, bottom edge untrimmed. Previous owner's neat inscription in elegant hand to front fly leaf: "Wm. Walt, Esq. / from H. A. Boswell / Edinburgh / July 6, '04. (Boswell was an Edinburgh author on religious matters.) A remarkably good copy of this rare early edition, trivial wear to spine ends, few stray water spots to lower board (affecting sheen only, not causing actual damage), one gathering (pp. 193-206) slightly proud, some pages lightly foxed, (mostly marginal), fore-edge spotted, else Near Fine. & "Dracula, first published in 1897, has a significance that far transcends its value as a literary text. . . . As a fantasy, the novel has achieved mythic significance, but it is also a horror story and an adventure story. Like Wilkie Collins's The Woman in White, Stoker's novel is written as a collection of first-person narratives, the principal contributors being Jonathan Harker, Mina Harker, and Dr. Seward. Unlike The Woman in White, however, there is no overseeing or quasi-authoritative “editorial” voice; the narrative is carried forward by means of 'documentary' evidence: newspaper cuttings, ship's log, business letters, as well as private letters and journals. Only at the end does Jonathan Harker comment on the 'mass of type-writing' that no-one is likely to 'accept as proofs of so wild a story'. . . . Strangely, nineteenth-century reviewers seemed oblivious to the novel's sexual connotations, but these have certainly been fully explored in more recent critical assessments, with particular interest being shown in the theme of sexual infection. . . . There are more sophisticated and better written novels, but Dracula exerts its appeal to the imagination through the extraordinarily intimate revelations of Lucy, Mina and Seward, through the powerful sense of an unleashed and undefined evil, and through its vague and therefore suggestive subtext, which recognises the darker side of life and of human nature."
