The Birth Life and Acts of King: Thomas Malory illustrated

Item Description: J.M. Dent & Co., London, 1893. Book Condition: Very Good. Illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley (illustrator). 1st Beardsley Edition. Number 271 of only 300 copies. Top edge gilt, others heavily deckled, many of which are uncut. Two photogravure frontispieces, sixteen full-page & four double-page illustrations, 43 ornamental borders, 288 ornamental initials, headpieces as well as other decorations in the text. This is the "Superior Issue" on handmade paper which gives the plates a depth and sumptuousness unrivaled by any later editions, though the especially absorbent paper & early impression of the plates has caused intermittent image transfer. Tipped-in armorial bookplate of Paul Hyde Bonner to pastedowns. TOGETHER WITH: Morte d'Arthur Portfolio. Reproductions of Eleven Designs omitted from the First Edition of Le Morte d'Arthur. Includes also the drawings made for the fascicule covers and an enlarged copy of the striking Merlin drawing. Quarter calf over bevel-edged vellum boards; top edge gilt, others deckled. Although this pictorial addendum was published a generation after the initial Beardsley limited edition it was issued (according to the publisher) so the buyers of the first edition need not buy the inferior (2nd) edition to have all of Beardsley's illustrations. As such this edition of the supplement was again limited to only 300 copies (of which this is number 240); 4to 254x294 mm; 4 Vol pages Art Nouveau Gilt-Decorated Cloth Covered Boards.

Item Description: London and New York J. M. Dent and Sons, Aldine House and E.P Dutton and Co. 1927, 1927. Third and most complete edition, limited to 1600 copies, with 10 extra illustrations not included in the two first printings. 22 full page and double-page illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley including the fine frontispiece, the Merlin drawing and the design for the original cover, also with numerous designs and illustrations throughout the text, as well as a profusion of decorated initials and chapter headings. Thick, large 4to, publisher’s original dark green polished cloth with spine and covers beautifully and fully decorated in gilt after designs by Beardsley. lv, 538 pp. A very handsome, superior copy, beautifully preserved, the cloth bright with strong gilt and no fading. The textblock very clean and crisp, the hinges tight and strong, corners sharp, only the most minute bit of age evidence along the tips or extremities. AN IMPORTANT PRINTING OF THIS VERY BEAUTIFUL BOOK, and this a very desirable and strong copy. The third edition contains an extra 10 illustrations added in the text, the first edition to do so, as well as the original binding design (which was never used) and a full size facsimile of the Merlin drawing, previously used on a smaller scale. The text is that of Caxton’s printed for the first time in 1485 at Westminster in London. This book represents Aubrey Beardsley's first commissioned work, undertaken when he was not yet twenty. While working at an insurance office in London, Beardsley frequently visited the Jones and Evans bookshop in Cheapside, where he got to know Frederick Evans. Mr. Evans allowed the artist to trade drawings for books on occasion, and it was Evans who suggested to J. M. Dent that Beardsley should be the artist for Mr. Dent's new edition of the Arthurian tales. A suggestion well made and one to which 20th century printing owes much. The commission, which came in 1892 was to "design and illustrate an ambitious edition of Malory’s ‘Le Morte d’Arthur’ which was intended to rival the Kelmscott Press books on their own ground.(E)lements beside the pale remnants of Pre-Raphaelitism were at work fertilizing (Beardsley’s) developing talent, and what was seen by its devisers as an emulation of Morris and Burne-Jones turned out in the execution more like a parody of them--a parody which annoyed Morris to the point at which he contemplated legal action. It may well not have been a deliberate parody: it is simply that already, willy-nilly, the ‘strong medieval decorative feeling’ of Morris was mixed, as Walter Crane noted, ‘with a curious weird Japanese-like spirit of diablerie and grotesque, as of an opium dream’." Beardsley’s life was short, he died of tuberculosis at the age of 26. In those few years he managed however to leave a great and lasting artistic legacy and a fascinating personal history as well.

Item Description: London J.M. Dent and Co. 1909, 1909. LIMITED SIGNED LARGE-PAPER ISSUE OF THE FIRST EDITION, one of only 750 numbered copies SIGNED by Arthur Rackham. This being copy 21 a very early number of the 600 copies for sale in England. With 13 impressive colour plates, two black and white illustrations and several line drawings as chapter heading or tail pieces, all by Arthur Rackham 4to, publisher's original ivory buckram decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt on the front cover and the spine, t.e.g., others untrimmed, pictorially decorated endpapers with Rackham illustrations printed in gold, original rose silk ties. xv, 291pp. A fine copy, very bright and extremely well preserved, internally near as pristine and with perfect plates, the ivory cloth ever so slightly mellowed on the spine panel. Engraved armorial bookplate on front blank free-fly of George Kitchin, possibly George William Kitchin, first Chancellor of the University of Durham and the last Dean of Durham Cathedral to govern the university. A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE SCARCE SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, this being one of the copies reserved for sale in Great Britain. This fine deluxe issue included one additional colourplate not included in the trade issues. Rackham has created a very special printing of Jonathan Swift’s 18th century satire. In 1899 an edition of this book had been issued with Rackham’s early drawings and no colour plates. As his reputation grew, the publisher asked for additional drawings and paintings and issued this new version. Rackham created a fresh set of illustrations which employed high-contrast linear designs tinged with washes of subtle color. The result was a collection of powerful images with striking emotional contrasts, well-suited to the spectacular travels of Gulliver. Rackham was able to graphically depict Gulliver kneeling on the floor with the Lilliputian tailors gazing up at him while measuring him for a new suit. And in his painting, 'Gulliver’s Combat With The Wasps', he dramatically portrays a handful of huge wasps swirling menacingly around Gulliver’s teetering form. The trials, tribulations, and exploits of Gulliver’s travels are magnificently portrayed here by the master illustrator. Bookseller Inventory # 27251

Item Description: J. M. Dent and Co. . / New York: Macmillan Co., London, 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. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1675. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 228. Schlobin, The Literature of Fantasy 1096. Bleiler (1978), p. 205. Reginald 15116. 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
