Item Description: London: printed for J. Huggonson, 1742. No Binding. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 12 pp. Folio, disbound. First edition. A poem published in the spring of 1742, prematurely celebrating a rapprochement between the King and his eldest son, following the fall of Walpole in late January (Foxon cites an advertisement in the March issue of the London Magazine). The enmity between the two had for some time symbolized the loss of national pride and confidence caused by a government widely viewed as venal and corrupt: "What heart not bled to see the C--rt so chang'd. / The K--g enrag'd, the humble P----- estrang'd?" Such optimism turned out to be misplaced. "After the resignation of Walpole a partial reconciliation with the King took place, but, possibly because the King took no steps towards increasing the Prince's allowance, matters were soon again on their old footing." -- DNB. First and last pages a bit dust-soiled, small old library number at the top of the title-page; small pieces torn from the upper inner corners of the title-page, but a sound copy, from the recently dispersed collection of J. W. B. Willis Bund (1843-1928), barrister, scholar, founder of the Worcestershire Historical Society, and author of numerous publications on aspects of Worcestershire and Welsh history; his extensive library was for many years on deposit at the Worcester Public Library, where Foxon examined this copy. Very rare; the ESTC lists two copies (LAM; CSmH), to which Foxon adds two more (WOp; CtY). Foxon H40. Bookseller Inventory # 443h-p

Item Description: David Nutt, London, 1888. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. A Very Good copy of the book, with chips and tears at the heel of the spine, soiling and toning to the limp, parchment boards and light foxing throughout, heaviest at the early and late pages. Wonderfully illustrated by Walter Crane and Jacomb Hood. Despite the defects, a serviceable copy of Wilde's only book of children's stories, including: "The Happy Prince," "The Nightingale and the Rose," "The Selfish Giant," "The Devoted Friend, and "The Remarkable Rocket." Wilde wrote the stories were "?not for children, but for childlike people from eighteen to eighty." (The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde) This was also Wilde's first published book of prose. "Oscar Wilde's magical stories for children have often been dismissed as lesser works, but as examples of how important imagination is to us all - young and old alike - they are a delight?" (The Guardian). Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 1113

Issued as the second volume (no number is indicated on or in book) of fourteen volumes of the First Collected Works of Oscar Wilde edited by Robert Ross. Limited to 1000 copies. Printed on handmade paper. INSCRIBED BY WILDE'S SON on f.f.e.p. "To Winifred [Ker-] Seymer From Cyril Holland" Octavo (8 1/2" x 6 1/4") 255 (256) pp. Original cream buckram cloth with gilt lettering and decoration. Top edge gilt.

Very Good condition. This title is unique in the Wilde canon for having been signed by his son, Cyril Holland. *** A copy of a signed letter from Merlin Holland (grandson of Oscar Wilde, son of Vyvyan Holland, nephew of Cyril Holland, and author of many books on Oscar Wilde) verifying that Cyril Holland's signature and inscription "bear every resemblance to his writing in the period 1912-1914" plus several dated photocopies of Cyril's signature from letters to his brother, Vyvyan, will accompany this volume. The contents of these letters will not be included as requested by Mr. Holland. Merlin Holland states in his letter of authenticity, there is not much known of Cyril, O.W.'s eldest son: "that beautiful, loving, loveable child of mine, my friend of all friends, my companion beyond all companions." Cyril enjoyed sports, attended Radley College "and when he left in 1904, he went straight into the army as a career soldier with the Royal Field Artillery. Until 1911 he was posted in the UK but then went with his regiment to India where he stayed until the outbreak of war in 1914. He was then posted back to Europe and killed [by a German sniper during the battle for Neuve Chapelle] fighting on the front on 9 May 1915" (M.H.). Cyril was one month from his thirtieth birthday.

Bound in the original paper backed cream boards with elegant black and red title lettering to front board. This is the third edition of this Oscar Wilde classic collection of five childrens tales printed in February 1902 and this is duly stated as such on the verso of the title page. All pages are present and correct. Previous owners name written in neat ink handwriting to the front free endpaper otherwise the interior pages remain very clean and tidy. The tissue guard to the frontispiece drawing is present and in excellent condition. The paper covering the spine is partially missing although the book is still very well bound with the under layer of paper still present. The authors name and some of the title lettering is still present. The main paper covered boards have overll signs of handling and wear commensurate with age. They are browned and marked with age but still retain their original charm. The red and black title lettering and front board illustration are definite and still very legible. All in all this is a decent copy of a very early and indeed scarce printing which could benefit from some tender loving care and attention to the outer boards to bring it back to its former glory. The inside is in very presentable condition having been well preserved over the books lifetime . Photographs are available at your request. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 3rd Printing.
