        Michel Strogoff suivi de Un drame au Mexique

      Hetzel 1909 - - Hetzel, Paris 1909, Grd. in-8 (18,5x28cm), 368pp., relié. - Nouvelle édition, illustrée de dessins par Ferat, gravés par Brabant et de 6 hors-texte en couleurs, et 2 cartes. Un portrait de Jules Verne au frontispice. Cartonnage d'éditeur "à un éléphant, titre dans l'éventail" signé en bas de la plaque Engel. Superbe premier plat, aux ors brillants. Un coin un peu émoussé. Dos aux beaux ors, mais vignette au phare un peu sale. Coiffes affaissées. Second plat très bien dans l'ensemble mais avec une coulure blanchâtre. Exemplaire frais, totalement exempt de rousseurs, mais présence sur certains feuillets d'une trace de mouillure pâle en marge haute sur 1 cm, sans grande incidence. On constate un certain "jeu" du volume dans la reliure, principal défaut sans doute, mais aisément restaurable, le dos étant en partie décollé du brochage. Bel exemplaire. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] New edition, illustrated with drawings by Ferat, engraved by Brabant and 6-out text color, and 2 maps. A portrait of Jules Verne to the frontispiece. Cardboard editor "an elephant, as in the range" signed at the bottom of the plate Engel. Superb first board, the brilliant golds. A corner a little blunt. Back to the fine gold, but the lighthouse sticker a little dirty. Headdresses collapsed. Second course very well overall but with a whitish sag. Copy fees, completely free of foxing, but presence on some sheets of a trace of pale wetting at the top margin of 1 cm, with little impact. There is some "play" in the volume binding, main fault of course, but easily restorable. Nice copy. 368pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS (The Bessie Pease Edition, Sequel to Her Alice In Wonderland)

      Dodge, New York 1909 - Carroll, Lewis (Charles L[utwidge] Dodgson). THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. New York: Dodge, (1909). Illustrations by Bessie Pease Gutmann. A FINE bright copy with first issue decorated endpapers in the Original Dust Jacket (which is slightly soiled, a little chipped, but virtually complete and a wonderful survival). Research suggests, but can't confirm, that this is also the first issue of the dust jacket. There are more ornate DJs which occasionally appear bearing the same $1.50 price but also a later street address (not that found on the title page) on the back panel. Whether a first issue or a variant dust jacket, it is rare indeed. The Lovett bibliography doesn't have a clue on the subject. Bessie Pease Gutmann (1876-1960) was an American magazine, calendar and postcard illustrator who specialized in innocent looking cupid-like young children. Of the famous Wonderland illustrators, her Alice looks about three or four years old and thus has a curious purity to her, surprisingly charming and appealing.
