Item Description: Macmillan, 1855. First edition. Original publisher's blue cloth with gilt titles to the spine and blind ruled borders to the covers. Sixteen pages of terminal adverts to vol III in the earliest state, dated February 1855. With autograph letter from the author tipped on the the half title of vol. I. A near fine copy with bright cloth and gilt. Internally, hinges tender and discretely repaired, but text fresh. Overall, a handsome copy of an uncommon book. The author's most critically regarded novel, a best seller at the time of publication and the inspiration for the north Devon village of the same name. Kingsley's letter, tipped onto the half title of vol I., is dated 15 April 1862, to a Mr Parker reads, "Your explanation is quite satisfactory & I am only much vexed that you shd have taken the trouble to write so long a letter in your present state of health." The first printing was made up of only 1250 copies and has long been sought by collectors. It is said to have been considered scarce when Jane Eyre was considered common, particularly with the first state of adverts and in nice condition. The first issue in nice condition is now of the utmost scarcity. Sadlier notes that his copy is "slightly spotted. a little blurred by damp, but, for this book, a fine copy." Sadlier 1340.

Set initially in Bideford in North Devon during the reign of Elizabeth I, Westward Ho! follows the adventures of Amyas Leigh, an unruly child who as a young man follows Francis Drake to sea. The book is the inspiration behind the village of Westward Ho! in Devon, the only place name in the British Isles which contains an exclamation mark. In 1925, the novel was the first to be adapted for radio by the BBC. Condition: In a full calf armorial prize binding. Externally, excellent with just minor shelfwear and some fading to the spine.

Item Description: Cambridge - Macmillan & Co., 1855. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. The uncommon second edition of one of Kingsley's most popular novels. Bound in blue cloth with gilt lettering. Complete in Three Volumes. This particular copy comes from the Worcester Public Library, Reference Department, with a library issue label to the front pastedowns stamped 1904. There is an ink library number toeach title page, and ink stamps to the title page and several pages throughout the text. Kingsley's greatest popular success, the historical novel Westward Ho! (1855), was originally planned as a patriotic anti-Catholic tale about the defeat of the Spanish Armada which he hoped would strike a sympathetic note amid contemporary anxieties about the Pope and the French invasion, triggered by the restoration of the papal hierarchy in England in 1850 and the aggressive anti-English posturing of Emperor Napoleon III. By the time the novel was finished patriotic feeling had been redirected, as England was fighting Russia in the Crimean War, of which Kingsley was an enthusiastic supporter, but this made the novel seem even more timely -ODNB. Condition: The bindings are generally tight and firm. The front inner hinge of volume one is slightly strained with the title page and dedication only partially attached. There is only mild wear to the extremities, with just mild rubbing with sunning and labels to the spines. Internally the pages have slight browning and the occasional spot. Overall the condition is good. Bookseller Inventory # 013168
