Item Description: London Printed fro Nathanael Ponder, 1682. The Most Well-Known Allegory Ever Written BUNYAN, John. The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come: delivered under the similitude of a dream, wherein is discovered, the manner of his setting out, his dangerous journey, and safe arrival at the desired country. London: Printed for Nathanael Ponder, 1682. The eighth edition. Twelvemo. [xii], 211, [1, 'Conclusion'], [4. publisher's ads] pp. Including frontispiece and two full page woodcuts. Early nineteenth-century blind-tooled sheep, spine blind-stamped in compartments and with gilt spine lettering, brown endpapers. Some wear to upper spine with a small crack. Marginal notes trimmed in a few places. Old rust mark to pp. 88-89. Some browning throughout. Overall, a very good copy of this very rare item. This is a genuine eighth edition. In the last thirty years there have only been two other Pilgrim's Progress published in 1682 to come up at auction and both of these were spurious with one claiming to be the 'Fifth edition' and the other the other the 'Ninth Edition". Harrison cites a New York Public Library catalog of 1929. which claims that the 'fifth' edition was not issued by Nathanael Ponder, and Sharrock records that the British Library copy of the same and that in the library of the Bunyan Meeting, Bedford, although bearing Ponder's name, "are totally unlike all other editions bearing his imprint." They are apparently printed in smaller type on inferior paper, with no shoulder noted. OCLC only records six copies of this actual 1682 (eighth) edition. The most well-known allegory ever written, this journey of the protaganist, Christian, is simultaneously filled with vivid and full human portraits of its characters. With over 100,000 copies sold in Bunyan’s lifetime, this "most perfect and complex of fairy tales" succeeded in attracting audiences from every Christian sect. Harrison pp. 39-40. Wing B-5568. According to Harrison there are only thirty-eight known copies of any complete edition prior to this one (of which OLCL locates six, of which three are imperfect); making this one of the forty-three earliest known copies and one of only four known complete copies of the eighth edition.

Item Description: Various, Various. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Collection of Various printings of John Bunyan's Pilgrim Progress The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come is a Christian allegory written by John Bunyan and published in February, 1678. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature,has been translated into more than 200 languages, and has never been out of print. Bunyan began his work while in the Bedfordshire county gaol for violations of the Conventicle Act, which prohibited the holding of religious services outside the auspices of the established Church of England. Early Bunyan scholars like John Brown believed The Pilgrim's Progress was begun in Bunyan's second shorter imprisonment for six months in 1675, but more recent scholars like Roger Sharrock believe that it was begun during Bunyan's initial, more lengthy imprisonment from 1660¿72 right after he had written his spiritual autobiography, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners. Dates Included: 1775 1786 1806 1814 1814 1820 1824 1864 1875 1893 1904 1904 1937 1937 6 Late 1800's. Bookseller Inventory # 000050

Item Description: The Sign of the Stein, [No place, 1902. Softcover. String-tied wrappers in hand-painted canvas dustwrapper. 32mo. (5" x 4.75"). (16)pp. Light edgewear and rubbing, near fine in near fine dustwrapper with a modest stain on the rear panel. Artist's engraved business card laid in with a manuscript presentation. A wonderful and wonderfully funny hand-lettered and hand-illustrated book by Walter Jack Duncan, celebrating Charles Mac Rae's courtship of his fiancee, his dwindling days of bachelorhood, his impending marriage, and the horrifying spectre of babies, with just the right touch of sophomoric humor one would expect from a talented 21 year old in 1902. Every page is embellished or illustrated in a most pleasing manner reminiscent of W.W. Denslow. Walter Jack Duncan was a noted illustrator born in Indianapolis in 1881. He studied at the Art Students League in New York City with John H. Twachtman, and illustrated for the popular magazines of the period: *The Century Magazine*, *Scribner's*, *McClure's*, and *Harper's Monthly Magazine*. He also served as an official artist with the A.E.F. during World War I and illustrated many books, including several by Christopher Morley. A lovely production, suitable for reprinting.

Item Description: George Robertson, 69 Elizabeth-St. [Printed by Walker, May and Co.], MDCCCLXX [1870] and MDCCCLXXI [1871]., Melbourne, 1870. Original Wraps. Book Condition: Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Three volumes in original yellow wrappers, 4.5" x 6.5". Extremely rare first Australian edition, printed in Melbourne without the illustrations that appeared in the American editions, in original publisher's yellow wrappers, with cover lettering in red & black and advertisements on rear covers (also in red & black lettering) for the one volume edition of Innocents Abroad, Twain's The Jumping Frog and Other Stories (published in wrappers) and Bret Harte's The Luck of Roaring Camp. Pagination as follows: Book I: New York to Venice (dated MDCCCLXX [1870] on title-page and MDCCCLXXI [1871] on cover): viii p. + p. 9-120; Book II: Venice to Ephesus (dated MDCCCLXXI [1871] on title-page and cover): [6] p. + p. 121-240; Book III: Syria, Palestine, Egypt and Home (also dated MDCCCLXXI [1871] on title-page and cover): [6] p. + p. 241-384. A spectacular survival and perhaps unique in this binding. Moderate foxing throughout; spines of all three volumes flaked; one-inch marginal tear on cover of Book I; nevertheless a tight, intact set. Contemporary owner's name ("Heath Villa, Double Bay") inscribed in sepia ink on covers of all three volumes and on title-pages of Books I and II. Double Bay is an Eastern suburb of Sydney; Heath Villa would probably have been a lodging house or hotel with a small library available for its clientele, which would explain why it was purchased in the "cheap issue" edition, rather than in the more expensive one-volume cloth edition advertised on the rear wrappers. The author's fame in Australia was both early and lasting; given the length of travel required between the U.S. and Australia at the time, the book's publication in Melbourne only a year after its initial publication in the States is extraordinary, and a testament to Twain's early celebrity abroad. Twain's later world lecture tour, including a successful visit to Australia in the 1890's, further cemented Twain's special relationship with his Australian readers. Bookseller Inventory # 005032

As Roderick Cave noted [see: THE PRIVATE PRESS, p.183], "As Colin Franklin has so well put it in a phrase in which he linked Morris, Cobden-Sanderson, Hornby, and Newdigate, the books appear as if the literary works were privately digested as well as printed, and presented in the form proper to them."

Cloister, in a Limited edition, copy 76 of 195, and bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe with the eight page prospectus for the publication laid-in.
