Selection ofNovels by Various Authors
911 - London - Various Publishers 1865 - An attractive set of twenty one novels by various authors, generally dating from the Nineteenth Century. Many of these works are very rare, and hard to find. We have put them together as they are bound as a set. Including the novels Tie and Trick by Hawley Smart (undated) , The Life and Adventures of Mervyn Clitheroe by William Harrison Ainsworth (undated), Life of a Racehorse by John Mills (c1865), 'Twas in Trafalgar's Bay (c1880) and The Seamy Side (c1880) by Walter Besant and James Rice, Through One Administration by Frances Hodgson Burnett (c1881), One Thing Needful (undated), The Golden Calf (undated), One Life, One Love (1891), Like and Unlike(c1888)and Phantom Fortune (1884) by Mary Elizabeth Braddon, The Bread-Winners by John Hay (1884), Court Royal by Sabine Baring-Gould (1887), Landing a Prize by Mrs. Edward Kennard (1891), A Village Commune (1882) and Guilderoy (1891) by Ouida, Mrs. Arthur by Mrs. Oliphant (1891), Mark Twain's Sketches by Mark Twain (1892), Prince Schamyl's Wooing by Richard Henry Savage(1892), A Slender Clue by Lawrence L. Lynch (1892) and To Leeward by F. Marion Crawford (c1911). Although in terms of content or theme there is nothing linking this selection, the works here are the product of some of the leading literary minds of the Nineteenth Century, from quintessentially American writers such as Mark Twain and Richard Henry Savage, as well as writers whose work is of a uniquely British bent, such as Ouida and Mary Elizabeth Braddon. Each volume is bound in decorative red quarter-morocco bindings and represents an interestingly broad range of themes and subjects, something that is in turn reflected in the vast and diverse range of novelists and writing that would become prominent in the Victorian Era. Many volumes contain the ownership label of one John Foster, many also include the bookbinders'stamps of E. Langley of Reading. Includes ink inscription to the endpages of Life and Adventures of Mervyn Clitheroe, from one J. K. Foster and one J. Cole of Eton College dated 1881. The Life of a Racehorse features illustrative plates throughout by E. Evans. Condition: In decorative quarter-morocco binding with gilt detailing and paper covered boards. Externally sound, there is wear to the extremities, boards and backstrips. The joints are very worn on Tie an Trick and the hinges on Mrs. Arthur are very tender. Internally, the pages are firmly bound and are generally bright and clean, aside from the odd instance of foxing to endpages and the odd spot. Overall: GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
