Item Description: London George Routledge & Co. 1851, 1851. First Combined Edition and the Second English printing overall of each title, issued together for Routlege's Standard Novels series. With an illustration by John Gilbert featuring Hester Prynne with Pearl standing before the stocks. 8vo, publisher's very handsome, original dark green cloth lettered and decorated in gilt on the spine and blind-stamped in an elaborate overall design on the covers. This is the binding variant for Routledge's Standard Novels. 252, [2], 1-248, 4 ads. A lovely and very fresh copy of this rare issuance, the text extremely clean and fresh, only the frontispiece with some spotting as might be typical with the paper used, the cloth very clean and bright and sturdy and with only the most trivial signs of age. A really superior copy of this rare book. VERY SCARCE, the pirated editions of each work produced by George Routledge to compete with Bohn's editions. The sheets of both printings were distributed in various formats, this being the combined issue for the Standard Novels series. THE SCARLET LETTER here was printed only one year after the true first edition printed by Ticknor and Fields in America and THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES is printed in the same year as the first. Together, these two novels present Hawthorne at his best and offer his two most famous and important books. His story of Hester Prynne is considered by most to be his magnum opus. A literary masterpiece and surely one of the most important works in the oeuvre of colonial America, it, more than any other work of literature set the stage for an understanding of the puritan mind and beginnings of the American system. Both Bohn’s and Routlege’s 1851 editions were piracies, a circumstance not uncommon in transatlantic literature at the time, and the two companies competition for sales of this title is a testament to Hawthorne’s popularity. There were only a handful of American authors who were given much credence or esteem by English publishers of the time. But Hawthorne was unquestionably one of the few, and this was perhaps his most popular book. THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES is a pillar of nineteenth-century American literature, a staple of Gothic literature, and a major influence on later authors of both the horror and mystery genres.

"He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (H.G. Wells)."From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled [a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!"

Item Description: George Routledge & Sons, New York, 1871. Hardcover. First US issue. Small octavo, original purple decorated cloth stamped in black, gilt, and blind, all edges gilt, pinkish cream endpapers. pp viii, 378, [2]. 76 illustrations in text by Arthur Hughes. Professionally resewn and rebacked, original endpapers intact, all spine stamping completely intact; inner hinges skillfully repaired, scarcely noticable; light spine sunning; Xmas, 1871, ink gift inscription on front free endpaper; English trade binder's ticket (Burn & Co.) on rear pastedown; only minor rubbing to the gilt picture on the front cover; else a fine bright copy, with much less fading to the spine than is usual with this colour, the rebacking skillfully done and scarcely noticable, and the text quite clean and unworn. The US edition was made from a separate British printing, by Ogden & Co. In the first issue of the UK binding, with the "A.S." spine imprint, gilt framing on the front cover, and the publisher's device within rules in blind on rear cover. Sadleir 1474c errs in his identification of the US first edition [It's not often you get to say "Sadleir was wrong"]. Not in Wolff (who was a serious MacDonald collector). The author's most famous book, a cornerstone in any fairy tale collection, and a high spot of Victorian children's literature, with excellent illustrations by MacDonald's good friend the famous Pre-Raphaelite Arthur Hughes. Their collaborations are "the despair of the collector, for they are exceedingly scarce and collectors of George MacDonald are exceedingly keen. The North Wind is at once Hughes' most delightful undertaking and one of the most charming books of the period." - Percy Muir. The British edition is now rare in original cloth, and the US edition is even scarcer. An nice copy of a great book. Bookseller Inventory # 20350

Item Description: London; George Routledge and Co. 1853., 1853. FIRST ROBSON TRANSLATION; an important edition. Small octavo, pp.423. Bound in original green blind-stamped cloth, with gilt decoration to spine. Trivial wear and handling, a little mottling to covers. Near fine. Housed in a recent cloth slipcase. This is the second complete translation of The Three Musketeers, following the 1846 translation by William Barrow; the first several attempts being incomplete, and/or unauthorised. Significantly, and it is the first translation by Robson, which proved to be the preferred text for the majority of nineteenth century translated editions. The dramatic, stirring, and romantic story of D'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, and their famous code of 'one for all and all for one,' remains an unsurpassed tale of adventure and heroism.

Occasional foxing, recent ownership inscription on front free endpaper. A handsome set. 75 chromolithograph plates by Henry Noel Humphreys and numerous wood engravings in the text. The superb chromolithograph plates by Noel Humphreys were first published in William Smith's edition of 1844-45. Thomas Johnes' famous translation of Froissart was first issued by his own private publishing venture, the Hafod Press, in 1803-05 and, remarkably, he "remains the only man to have undertaken the formidable task of translating Froissart's Chronicles in their entirety, and the appearance of subsequent editions until 1906 testifies to their worth" (ODNB).
