Item Description: London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1850, 1850. 2 volumes in one, octavo (172 x 110 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled sides, raised bands, titles to spine gilt, edges sprinkled red, grey-green endpapers. Housed in a brown cloth solander box. Boards rubbed and gently bowed, slight wear to extremities, light foxing to prelims and endmatter, occasional spotting to margins of text block. An excellent copy. Second edition, first state, with the correctly dated title page. Published in December 1850, a large proportion of the copies were released with the date on the title page altered to 1851 (Smith). Wise calls it "a book of considerable literary importance" due to the inclusion of Charlotte's biographical sketch of her sisters, a preface to Wuthering Heights, as well as a series of poems by the sisters, first published here. Very rare. Sadleir 350a; Smith, pp.6373; Symington, p.100; Wise pp.1036. Bookseller Inventory # 100207

Item Description: Smith Elder & Co., 1851 [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

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.

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
