Item Description: Smith, Elder & Co, London, 1850. Half-Leather. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Second Edition. The book is firmly and squarely bound in contemporaneous half leather with marbled boards, the boards are somewhat bumped and rubbed, and there have been minor, but skilled, repairs to the corners. The text block looks little read, it is slightly age toned, with minor foxing to the earlier and later leaves, it is free from inscriptions. The book is contained within a custom made, velvet lined box, with leather labels to the spine. The second edition is arguably as important as the first, Charlotte edited the text, applying many of the corrections that the despicable Newby had failed to make to the first edition, as well as significantly cutting down many of the longer passages in order to allow it to be issued as a single volume, it is also the first edition to include the sisters poems. It was published three years after the first edition in December 1850 by Smith, Elder and Company, Charlotte already having a working relationship with the rather less unscrupulous George Smith, who had published Jane Eyre for her. The text then became the basis of all reprints for approximately the next hundred years. The majority of copies of the second edition appear with an altered 1851 date to the title page, to make them more suitable for the following year, but as these turn up with catalogues dated as late as 1855, so one suspects that these were still being sold for several years after the original publication. This copy has the more desirable 1850 title page, identifying it as being from the earliest print run and the true second edition. Bookseller Inventory # 001995

Item Description: New York: Harper & Brothers, Publishers, 1848, 1848. Duodecimo. Publisher's plum wavy-grain cloth, covers with elaborate overall design blocked in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt. Housed in a dark brown flat back cloth solander box. Cloth just a little worn at extremities, spotting to the lower board, foxing to endpapers and sporadically in the text, largely to the prelims, overall a very good copy. Second edition overall, and the first American edition, published in April 1848, at 75 cents, with the publisher's misattribution on the title page of this book to Charlotte Brontë. The second English edition was not published until December 1850. The first edition, with Anne Brontë's Agnes Grey, was rushed out by Thomas Cautley Newby in December 1847, in the wake of the unexpected success of Jane Eyre, published by Newby's rivals, Smith Elder. Newby then embarked on an advertising campaign to confuse the identity of the three Bell "brothers", suggesting that all the novels were the work of one person: hence the mistaken attribution on the title page here. Symington, Shakespeare Head Brontë, p. 100 (describing slightly variant binding). Bookseller Inventory # 68016

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: 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).

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: SERIES OF ORIGINAL DRYPOINTS Five Original drypoints, entitled "Wuthering Heights". Published by Colnaghi & Co., 1923. Edition of only 25 signed proofs. 1. The Three Withens. Signed & titled beneath image. Image size: 10 x 8". Mounted. 2. The Path to Wuthering Heights. Signed & titled beneath image. Image size: 10 x 8". Mounted. 3. Wuthering Heights. Signed & titled beneath image. Image size: 8 x 10". 4. The Threshold of Wuthering Heights. Signed & titled beneath image. (Some marking to edge of mount). Image size: 8 x 10". Mounted. 5. Passing Storms. Signed & titled beneath image. Image size: 8 x 10". Mounted. v. nice set. Percy Smith was principally a calligrapher and book designer. 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: 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
