Item Description: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1848. Wraps. First American Edition. Two octavo (5-1/4" x 7-11/16") volumes in the original printed wrappers. First published in England in December 1847, this American edition was published in April 1848 simultaneously in wrappers (two volumes at 25 cents each) and in cloth (one volume at 75 cents), with copies in cloth much more common than those in wrappers. It was this American edition which led to the "unmasking" of the Brontes. The author is wrongly identified on the covers and the title page as being that of "JANE EYRE," which was also first published in 1847 but was of course by Emily's sister, Charlotte. Harper & Brothers, acting on the assumption of Thomas Newby, the Bronte's British publisher, that the sisters (writing under the pseudonyms of Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell) were, in fact, one person, saw nothing untoward in attributing WUTHERING HEIGHTS to the "author of JANE EYRE." It was to clear up this misunderstanding that the Brontes made their dramatic 1848 visit to their British publishers to reveal their true identity. The various film adaptations of the novel include the classic 1939 version directed by William Wyler and starring Laurence Olivier as Heathcliff and Merle Oberon as Cathy. It was voted best film of the year by the New York Film Critics in preference to the Oscar-garlanded GONE WITH THE WIND. The English Edition of the previous year will set you back an easy 6 figures. Spine and rear cover of the first part in expert facsimile. The second part with expert repairs to the spine and rear cover. Some soiling and foxing to covers and contents. Generally Very Good and exceptionally scarce in the wrappers. Bookseller Inventory # 016971

Item Description: 1848. [two volumes, original wrappers] A Novel. By the Author of "Jane Eyre" [sic]. [In Two Volumes.] New York: Harper & Brothers, 1848. Original light brown printed wrappers. First American Edition of one of the greatest novels of the Nineteenth Century. Emily Bronte's ("Ellis Bell's") WUTHERING HEIGHTS was published in England in December 1847 together with her sister Anne's ("Acton Bell's") AGNES GREY. Although it was their sister Charlotte ("Currer Bell") who was the driving force behind all three sisters' simultaneous effort to publish, it was Charlotte's novel, titled THE PROFESSOR, that was rejected -- but with praise, so that she was encouraged to submit another effort that she would call JANE EYRE (which would wind up getting published a few months earlier, and by a larger publisher, than her two sisters' books).~This first American edition was published in April 1848 simultaneously in wrappers (two volumes at 25 cents each) and in cloth (one volume at 75 cents) -- "both bindings contain the original printed sheets, and copies in either binding constitute the first American edition" [Smith]. It is interesting to note that the American edition indicates that WUTHERING HEIGHTS is "by the author of JANE EYRE" -- which of course it is not (the English edition had instead used Emily's pseudonym, Ellis Bell). Whether Harper truly thought both novels were by the same writer (or were confused by the similar pseudonyms), or whether Harper sought to stimulate the sales of WUTHERING HEIGHTS by intentionally misrepresenting the author, is an intriguing question.~As Smith points out (Note 2), the two-parts issue is unusual in that Part I ends right in the middle of a sentence, and Part II takes up with the rest of that sentence, without so much as a separate title page. (Part II does, however, have its own wrapper, so identified on front wrapper and on spine.) ~In this set, the rear wrapper of Part I is as described by Smith (the only state he observed -- headed "Recent Works of Fiction by Popular Authors" and including JANE EYRE "by the Author of Wuthering Heights"). However, the rear wrapper of Part II is different from both states observed by Smith: where he notes wrappers headed by "Choice Library of Modern Romance" or "Popular Works by Mrs. Marsh," this copy is headed "Valuable and Attractive New Works" and includes Melville's OMOO. ~Condition is very good, considering the fragility of these wrappered volumes. There are nicks and ruffles in the wrappers' edges (plus one closed 3"-tear in a rear wrapper), and there are a few droplet-marks. The spines are askew (as usual for these Harper books in wrappers), and inside, there is minor foxing (again, as usual for this 1840s paper). That said, this is the first time we have EVER had both volumes in original wrappers, in our 30+ years in business (we once had a Part II only): this is truly a rare edition. Now that the English first edition in original binding has surpassed $100,000 in value, this two-volume American edition in wrappers is a highly-desirable alternative at a fraction of the cost. Smith pp 70-74. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell case. Bookseller Inventory # 12383

Item Description: Smith Elder & Co. 1850, 1851. 2 works in one vol., 8vo., Second Edition, endpapers very lightly age-marked; original chocolate cloth, sides elaborately blocked and lettered in blind, backstrip blocked in blind and lettered in gilt, yellow endpapers, uncut, hinges starting but binding entirely sound, uncut, a very good, bright, clean copy in wholly unrestored publisher's binding, the whole now preserved in custom-made solander case. With the contemporary binder's ticket of Westley of London mounted on rear paste-down. Complete with the review leaf before first half-title. This edition was published in December 1850 but the title date of 'a large proportion' of copies was altered to 1851 to render them more suitable for the forthcoming year (see Wise, p. 104). This is evidently a slightly later issue, in Westley's chocolate cloth rather than the 'claret' given by Wise, and with the 16pp publisher's catalogue bound in at rear dated December 1855. 'This new edition of 'Wuthering Heights and Agnes Grey' is a book of very considerable literary importance. Not only does it contain (pp. vii-xvi) Charlotte's 'Biographical Notice' of her two sisters, together with (pp. xvii-xxiv) a Preface to 'Wuthering Heights'; it also includes a series of poems by both Emily and Anne which appeared in its pages for the first ime' (Wise, p.104). A SPLENDID IF SLIGHTLY AGED COPY OF THE EXTREMELY SCARCE SECOND EDITION IN WHOLLY UNRESTORED PUBLISHER'S BINDING. NCBEL III p.866; Wise 2 (pp.103-106). Bookseller Inventory # 12136

After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights, and arranged for it to be published as this posthumous second edition in 1850. Member of the P.B.F.A. BRONTË SISTERS.

Item Description: Harper and Brothers, New York, 1848. Hardcover. First American edition. Publisher's brown cloth, decorated and embossed in blind, and decorated and titled in gilt on the spine. Contemporary owner's name of Edwin Troxley Freedley ("E.T. Freedley May 12 / 48"), lacks the rear free endpaper, spine cloth worn down to the text block at the crown, some evidence (albeit small) of repair to the cloth on the spine, some foxing in the text, a good copy. Freedley was a Philadelphia-born author, mostly on business and technological subjects, particularly his important and bestselling *Practical Treatise on Business* (1852). A realistic alternative for collectors seeking the British edition, of which only a handful of copies have been offered in the past three decades, and which costs in excess of $150,000 when found.

Item Description: Scribner, Welford and Co., New York., 1873. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. Illustrated Edition. Scribner, Welford and Co., New York 1873. A very interesting book and certainly wonderful reading for just about anyone. This book has the deep blue and mottled bluish front and back hardcovers. The covers exhibit some color loss at its outer edges but in general, it is a very good book. All of the original 488 pages are present and in excellent condition, no folds, no stains, no splits, and, this book is from a smoke free home, clean and crisp and ready for an evening of your reading pleasure. It measures 5-3/4" by 8" vertical and as I mentioned with the other Bronte book I have listed, this one too is well worth having a professional book restoration person have a look at it and to bring it back to its original glorious condition, seems to me at least, to be well worth doing and a wonderful investment. Thank you for viewing. Bookseller Inventory # 7

He studied under Edward Johnston at the Camberwell School of Art and Crafts from 1900-1902 and subsequently became a lecturer there at the same time as Eric Gill. Smith had a perticular interest in Emily Brontë and Wuthering Heights and Haworth generally. Between about 1922 and 1948 he executed many drawings of Haworth, the moorland and places of Brontë interest. Poems of Emily Bronte, published by Curwen Press in 1923 contains fleurons and decorative devices by Smith. His major Brontë work is undoubtedly a notable set of five drypoints entitled "Wuthering Heights", published by Colnaghi's in an edition of 25 in 1923. His wife Dr. Ellen Marian Delf-Smith, has written about these drypoints as follows:".In 1922 and 1923, my husband's visits to the Bronte country around Haworth re-awakened his feeling for Emily Brontë and for Wuthering Heights, the scene of her most famous novel.The five Drypoints which were the result of these visits were in later years described to me by my husband in the following words:I. THE THREE WITHENSView as approached from Stanbury,II. THE PATH TO WUTHERING HEIGHTSFollowing along the same path, passing through the gateway shadowed by three trees, continuing beyond the small stream which flows across the pathway, and then turning to look back. The viewpoint lies between the lower and middle Withens. These buildings no longer exist, but the spot may easily be found.III. WUTHERING HEIGHTSNear view of the Upper Withens seen from the south, i.e. after passing beyond the house as first approached from Stanbury.IV. THRESHOLD TO WUTHERING HEIGHTSThis may be regarded as a close-up view of the porch which forms the gloomy threshold of the building. The sinister gnarled tree no longer stands, the doors and windows have been walled up, but the dreary forbidding aspect still remains.V. PASSING STORMSPassing beyond the wall seen on the left in Wuthering Heights, and following the rising ground towards the West, and looking back, the house is seen almost end on, the characteristic trees, now on the right, the whole obscured by passing storms. To the right, the view is down the valley which, some distance lower down, leads to the so-called "Brontë Waterfalls".The five subjects reflect the atmosphere - serene, stormy or even sinister, of the Brontë moors, (During our visit I saw the sheets of rain depicted in the Drypoint "Passing Storms" and once also the incredible towering cloud depicted in "The Three Withens"). They are also extremely accurate representations of the moors as they still were in 1932 when I visited the area for the first time; the "Three Withens" were still recognisable, but the lowermost had collapsed and the grass was encroaching upon the foundations: the heavy slates of the roof of the middle Withens were sagging deeply; the leafy branch of the Hawthorn adjoining the uppermost buildings ("Wuthering Heights" seen and depicted in 1923) had been lopped, the roof of the building was sagging and, according to a warning on the building, was considered as a risk to man or beast entering.On our last visit in 1947, the roof of the middle Withen had fallen in, the upper Withen was now boarded up as being in a dangerous state and was clearly being allowed to decay. We were told that a local water board used the moors as a catchme. Bookseller Inventory # 11817

Item Description: John Grant, Edinburgh, 1911. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good Set. Illustrated (illustrator). Octavo, Gilt lettered and decorated cover and spine. Top edges are gilt. Charlotte (April 21, 1816 March 31, 1855), Emily (July 30, 1818 December 19, 1848) and Anne (January 17, 1820 May 28, 1849), were English writers of the 1840s and 1850s. Their novels caused a sensation when they were first published and were subsequently accepted into the canon of great English literature. Charlotte and Emily had written compulsively from early childhood and were first published, at their own expense, in 1846 as poets under the pseudonyms Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell. The book attracted little attention, selling only two copies. The sisters returned to prose, producing a novel each in the following year. Charlotte's Jane Eyre, Emily's Wuthering Heights and Anne's Agnes Grey were released in 1847 after their long search to secure publishers. The novels attracted great critical attention and steadily became best-sellers, but the sisters' careers were shortened by ill-health. Emily died the following year before she could complete another novel, and Anne published her second novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, in 1848, a year before her death. Upon publication Jane Eyre received the most critical and commercial success of all the Bronte works, continuing to this day. Charlotte's Shirley appeared in 1849 and was followed by Villette in 1853. Her first novel, The Professor, was published posthumously in 1857. The first biography of Charlotte was written by her friend Elizabeth Gaskell and published in 1857. A most handsome set. Bookseller Inventory # 025133
