"With Ralph Richardson as a Buckingham wittily described by Paul Dehn as 'a Mr Baldwin who has read Machiavelli' (Dehn, 76) and John Gielgud as an exquisitely lyrical Clarence, the film also had a star power impossible to achieve at the Old Vic" (ODNB). It is more than likely that this book was signed by them during filming. The edition is the New Temple Shakespeare, first published thus in 1935, this impression dated 1950.

'Bracebridge Hall . is a place clearly based on Aston Hall: Bracebridge was a name associated with the builders of the hall, the Holte family, namely Adam Bracebridge. Washington Irving was a frequent visitor to Aston Hall, a Jacobean Mansion which at that time was no longer in the possession of the Holte family who built it but was then leased to James Watt Junior, son of James Watt, one of the prime movers of the Industrial Revolution. From the evidence of this book, the Christmas season as celebrated in the countryside in the early 19th Century was a vibrant and living custom, and that it had an historical basis.' Austenonly. A wonderful Christmas story in a fine and remarkable binding, held in a protective blue cloth slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 39089

Item Description: London: J. M. Dent and Co. . / New York: Macmillan Co., 1895. Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii 1-251 [252: blank], title page printed in orange and black, original pictorial red buckram over bevel-edged boards, front and spine panels stamped in gold, t.e.g., fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First edition, variant binding (possibly later) with gilt angel (designed by Arthur Rackham) on front panel. A dark satire based on a remark attributed to John Ruskin, that if an angel came to earth someone would be sure to shoot it. ". an underrated work that deserves to be more widely read." - Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature V, pp. 2162-4. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-155.

Currey (2002), p. 426 (binding B). Hammond B2. Wells 5. Wells Society 5. Wells and Hammond have the binding information reversed: copies of this book with the angel on the front cover are not advance copies and are far more common than those without the figure. A fine "like new" copy. Accompanied by an important autograph letter signed (ALs) from Wells to his publisher, J. M. Dent, dated 24 September 1895, 4 pages on folded octavo sheet embossed "Lynton, / Maybury Road, / Working." A detailed discussion of Wells's financial arrangements with Dent for THE WONDERFUL VISIT. Wells discusses Dent's discount agreement with a retail bookseller and how is affects his royalty. "I'm afraid I can't accept 15% on what Smith's pay you, as you suggest, anxious as I am for the advertisement in their stalls . Publication at a nett price is entirely to their advantage (saving them the competition of the discount bookseller) & I certainly think it an unfair abuse of their monopoly for them to insist on terms that will not give you a profit & enable you to pay my royalty ." In the letter Wells mentions his financial arrangement with Heinemann for THE TIME MACHINE, and his "next" book, THE ISLAND OF DOCTOR MOREAU. Throughout his writing career Wells pestered his publishers over contract terms and commissions. This letter is a fine example of the sharp watch Wells kept over his financial arrangements with publishers. Approximately 240 words. The letter has two pin holes at top left corner; it is otherwise in fine condition. Book and letter enclosed in fleece lined cloth folder and quarter maroon pebbled morocco and red cloth slipcase, spine panel lettered and tooled in gold. (#80389). Bookseller Inventory # 80389

Item Description: J.M. Dent & Co., 1909. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. No Jacket. Aubrey Beardsley, Jane Griffiths (bookbinder) (illustrator). 2nd Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. The 1909, Second Edition and incorporates additional work, missed from the First Edition. It is the edition most often reproduced. Sir Thomas Malory's medieval version of the legend of King Arthur, first published by Caxton in 1485, was an important early commission for Aubrey Beardsley. It followed an introduction to the publishers J.M. Dent who were looking for an illustrator for a new edition in medieval and William Morris style but produced less costly than the latter. Beardsley received £250 for his work. Originally issued in 12 monthly parts between 1893 and 1894, it was bound on completion (2 volumes or 3 volumes for the handmade-paper edition). Beardsley's powerful and expressive style changes somewhat through the course of the work and the stylistic mannerisms at the beginning (influenced by Burne-Jones, Walter Crane and William Morris) give way to his own distinctive style later on, although somewhat simplified some say, as he later tired of the book's workload. Morris took an intense dislike to the book, largely because of the mechanical reprographic techniques used. Beardsley's response was: "the truth is that, while his work is a mere imitation of the old stuff, mine is fresh and original." The illustrations contain the first appearance of Beardsley's new signature (three vertical lines and three heart-shaped forms). Stylistically, the illustrations demonstrate Beardsley's evolving powers of design, often pierced with sinister touches, and a weaving together of popular themes in romantic art of love and death, which fascinated Beardsley. There are said to be nearly approx 350 separate initials, chapter headings, borders, ornaments and large and small illustrations. This SUPERBLY BOUND, unique, striking and darkly handsome binding is confirmed as by the British poet and academic, Jane Griffiths, ca. 1993 out of her South Burlingham Workshop, Norfolk, having been commissioned by the poet and publisher, Peter Scupham of the Mandeville Press and Mermaid Books fame. Swirling-grained black leather on heavy boards with raised dark leather artwork of trees and branches probably depict The Forest of Bedegraine. A contiguous design across both boards and spine and continued into and onto the front and rear end-papers creates a sense of total enclosure of the text in the forest. On the back board is a light opaque roundel depicting a pale moon, crossed by bare branches and through which light can pass into the book. A truly remarkable design and metaphor. Bibliographic description: two blank leaves of hand-made paper after end-papers; half-title within ruled floral device; half-title verso carries edition details (2nd edition, limited to 1000 copies for UK and 500 for America 'After printing which the type has been distributed'. Full-page frontispiece by Beardsley (and throughout the book), tissue guard, illustrated title-page with shaped text. Contents [v]-vi, List of Illustrations (collated and complete) [vii]-viii, Introduction by Prof. John Rhys, Oxford, 7 November, 1893 [ix]-xxv, Note on the Text Here Used by F. J. Simmons [xxvi], Caxton's Preface to the Edition of MCCCCLXXXV [xxvii]-xxix, Then to Proceed Forth [xxx], The Table or Rubrysshe of the Contents of the Chapters [xxxi]-liv, [1]-624. Includes General Glossary pp. 621-624. Two leaves of hand-made paper before binding design end-papers. Clean and soft paper throughout with two faults: one page has been professionally repaired (closed tear, see pic.) without loss and hardly noticeable; small inked numbers to t.p. verso. Top edge gilt with rough-trimmed fore-edge. Strong suede-lined, black cloth clamshell box, with paper label, measures 28.5 cm high x 23 cm wide x 7.5 cm deep. Note: the bookbinder, Jane Griffiths, was born in Exeter and worked as a bookbinder in Norfolk and London.
