        The Trilogy of Desire: The Financier, The Titan, and The Stoic

      New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1912-1947 First editions of each novel in the author's acclaimed Trilogy of Desire. Octavo, 3 volumes. The Titan is inscribed by the author on the title page, "For the Boyd's- go then or you or ye- and do like mine This book is all about money Dreiser May-1924." The Titan is in near fine condition with some toning to the spine and some rubbing to the bottom cloth. The Financier is in very good condition with rubbing to the extremities. The Stoic is fine in a near fine dust jacket. Particularly uncommon signed and inscribed. The Trilogy of Desire is the acclaimed series of novels about the mogul Frank Cowperwood, a businessman based on the real-life streetcar tycoon Charles Yerkes. In the first novel, Frank Cowperwood, whose father is a banker, makes his first money by buying cheap soaps on the market and selling them back with profit to a grocer. Later, he gets a job in Henry Waterman & Company, and leaves it for Tighe & Company. He also marries an affluent widow, in spite of his young age. Over the years, he starts misusing municipal funds with the aid of the City Treasurer. In the second novel, already rich, Cowperwood moves to Chicago with his new wife Aileen. He decides to take over the street-railway system. He bankrupts several opponents with the help of John J. McKenty and other political allies. In the Stoic, the conclusion to the trilogy, and already a respected Tycoon, he decides to move to London, England, where he intends to take over and develop the underground railway system.

        THE LOST WORLD [Large Paper Issue]

      1912. [one of only 190 copies] Being an account of the recent amazing adventures of Professor George E. Challenger... London New York Toronto: Hodder and Stoughton, n.d. [1912]. Original light blue cloth blind-stamped with dinosaur footprints. First Edition, large paper issue (published on the same day as the trade edition). This was Doyle's first Professor Challenger science fiction tale: the exploring party ventures to a lost plateau deep in the South American jungle, where dinosaurs still reign. Both the movie "Jurassic Park" and the television series "The Lost World" owe much to this book. It was one of Doyle's favorite books; he based the character of and appearance of Professor Challenger partly upon Professor Rutherford (whom he had known at Edinburgh University) and partly upon himself -- though the frontispiece portrait of Challenger looks more like a Neanderthal than either gentleman.~On October 15, 1912, the trade edition of 10,716 copies was published (colonial copies are believed to have come a few weeks later); but also on October 15, of the 1,000 "Presentation" large-paper copies that had been printed, the 190 that had been bound (in this light blue cloth) were likewise published. It would not be until 1914 and later that the other 810 copies would be bound up in light BROWN cloth, and would be issued with a Henry Frowde title page (and with Frowde's name added to the spine; the last copies issued read "Milford" on the spine instead).~In addition to the larger size and the unusual dinosaur-footprint binding, this edition has some additional features not in the trade edition. The endpapers are photograph-pictorial, from the illustration of the distant view of the lost world's plateau. The illustrations, rather than being mere inserted plates, are tipped onto printed heavy brown leaves -- and there are more of them: whereas the trade edition has eight plates, this edition has thirteen -- including three in color.~This is a near-fine copy of a book quite difficult to find in desirable condition. There is scarcely any external wear, except that the gilt lettering varies in brightness (the spine cloth is lightly faded, and there is a trace of cover dustiness, but neither is serious). The pictorial endpapers remain intact, despite the volume's considerable heft. All of the plates' tissue guards are present (some are creased and one has a small tear). In all, being one of only 190 copies, this is a highly-desirable copy -- of what is often regarded as Doyle science fiction at its best. Green & Gibson A37c.

A sound and tight copy in publisher's black cloth with gilt titles to spine and upper. Light foxing to fore edge and to a couple of pages; inner hinges starting. Gilt to spine rubbed with head and foot at some point glued to stop wear, although this is not visible. A lovely copy made all the more attractive by the neat signed inscription. A curious collection of strange tales from the acclaimed thriller writer and creator of gentleman spy Richard Hannay. See Haining; Crime Fiction p193-4.

        ELF, A MAGAZINE OF DRAWINGS AND WRITINGS BY JAMES GUTHRIE.|THE

      Harting, Petersfield, Hampshire: The Pear Tree Press, 1912. original cloth-backed boards. Pear Tree Press. 4to. original cloth-backed boards. (vi), 82 pages with 21 separate plates of illustrations. No limitation but prospectus states 80 copies only were printed and explains why it came out in 1912 (Xerox of prospectus loosely inserted). Not cited in any of the standard bibliographies. Guthrie has described this edition as follows "Originally begun as a quarterly, and interupted by many causes. The author now offers more than the equivalent of Six parts in one volume at one Guinea." James J. Guthrie (1874-1952), was born in Scotland but moved to London as a child. He founded the Pear Tree Press in 1899 when living at Pear Tree Cottage in Ingrave, Essex, England. He moved several times before settling at Flansham, near Bognor Regis, Sussex in 1907. He was an artist, typographer, and printer with a particular interest in intaglio printing. Many of his titles stressed wood engraving and book plate design. Pagination agrees with that of copies described in WorldCat with the exception that this copy has 21 separate plates (other than frontispiece and title page) rather than the 20 in the WorldCat description. Very minor wear at head of spine and rubbing to covers. Ink ownership inscription on front free endpaper.

        The Heroes, or Greek Fairy Tales for My Children

      London: The Medici Society Ltd., 1912. Small quarto. xvii, 113pp. Out of an edition of 512, this is number two of twelve printed on vellum. Illustrated with twelve mounted color plates by Sir William Russell Flint. These reproductions of watercolor paintings were originally grouped together at the back of the book, but were distributed throughout the text in their relevant places when it was rebound. Together with an additional portfolio of twelve duplicate plates. The text was written by Charles Kingsley -- priest, historian, writer, and early supporter of evolution. Within, he tells the tales of Perseus, the Argonauts, and Theseus, for "there are no fairy tales like these old Greek ones, for beauty, and wisdom, and truth, and for making children love noble deeds, and trust in God to help them through."This volume features a designer binding by Lester Capon. Trained in the art of bookbinding by James Brockman, Capon is known for employing traditional bookbinding methods and materials within a modern context. Bound in green goatskin, with multi-colored and hand-stained leather and paper inlays and gold tooling. At the center of the spine extending over both covers is a circular design filled with small curved gold lines and dots and multicolor circular inlays; at the center, like the boss of a shield, the gilt title rests on a red circle. In the background, inlays and gold tooling resemble a field of stars and planets, and undulating navy lines run lengthwise across both covers. Capon says of the design: "The central massing of gold and coloured inlays is mainly based on shields, but I don't do 'literal' or illustration, so it's invented and imagined. Or it could be the sun! - the presence of ancient gods is prevalent and relevant, which is why, also, the hand stained inlays are suggestive of the heavens." Sewn silk endbands, orange Finnish reindeer suede doublures, and Ingres endpapers in harvest gold and merlot. T.e.g. Housed in felt-lined, cloth-drop back box in gray-blue with restraining wedge and a separate compartment for the cloth folder containing the additional plates. Extremely fine.
