RUJUB, The JUGGLER.
Chatto & Windus, Piccadilly., London: 1893 - Frontis [with tissue guard] + 7 inserted plates by Stanley L. Wood. T.p. device. One of the great Henty rarities, this one volume edition of a Henty work written primarily for an adult audience. By contrast, the 3 volume first published earlier in 1893 is currently available in 2 copies, offered at $20K, but none of this edition, nor does ABPC show any of this 1st one- volume having come to auction in the last 30+ years. And, of some appeal to the impecunious Henty collector, this a relatively affordable alternative. Slight lean. Cloth quite dull. Professionally rebacked with original spine retained. Period poi [dated Christmas 1893] to preliminary blank. Signs of being read found through the book. Withal, a VG copy of a rare Henty work. Original publisher's green fine-weave decorative cloth binding. Bevelled boards. AEG. Floral patterned-paper eps. 8vo. 7-1/2" x 5". 1st one-volume, and first illustrated, edition (Newbolt 56.3). [4], 332, 32 pp. July 1893 publisher catalogue [earliest version] at rear. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
