Item Description: London: David Nutt, 1888. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Crane, Walter; Hood, Jacomb (illustrator). 1st Edition. Illustrated by Walter Crane and Jacomb Hood. First edition. One of 1,000 copies. Paper covered boards, with an illustration by Hood to the front board in black, decoratively lettered in red. An excellent copy, with some light rubbing to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, a few tiny chips to the spine head, a few spots of light soiling to the otherwise bright boards, minor crease to the rear board, tiny split to the paper hinge inside the front cover, otherwise tight and sturdy binding with bright and clean pages. Overall, a lovely and unsophisticated copy of an extremely fragile book. Housed in a custom folding box. Mason 313. The Happy Prince and Other Tales is a collection of fairy tales and fables, including "The Happy Prince," "The Nightingale and the Rose," "The Selfish Giant," "The Devoted Friend," and "The Remarkable Rocket." Although they are primarily geared toward children, the stories in this volume are laden with Wilde's signature wit and have a melancholy and sometimes sarcastic undertone. This volume is beautifully illustrated in black and white by Walter Crane and Jacomb Hood. Specifically, Crane illustrated the full-page plates (including the frontispiece), and Hood created the in-text illustrations for the chapter headings and the front cover.

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
