About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Best Of Husbands by Payn, James.

Description:

Volume I, No. I of The Lakeside Library series, issued January 1, 1875, self - wraps have separated cleanly at spine, edges are chipped, toning noted at edges, left edge at spine is neatly and uniformly chipped affecting the first letters of each sentence, but all sentences are easily readable, edge is chipped 1 inch deep at the bottom 3 inches, with loss of the first few words of each sentence. Publisher R. R. Donnelley, after struggling in the business for several years, and at the suggestion of his manager, Alex T. Loyd, decided to reprint hardback fiction in a very affordable paperbound format, an idea that had proven somewhat successful in the 1840's. Donnelley re-incorporated as DONNELLY & LOYD, and called his paperbound series, The Lakeside Library. Issues were large size, printed in triple columns on cheap paper, and bound in wraps. They were issued semi - monthly, on the 1st and 15th, then tri - monthly on the 1st, 10th, and 20th, beginning with No. 22, November 1, 1875. The format changed to a smaller size, and an increased number of pages with the December 1st, 1895, issue. Cost of issues were 10 cents, or $2.15 annually, and distribution was by subscription and newsstand. Donnelley also issued annual volumes, bound in hardback, at pennies of what the original books would have cost. The series was immediately successful and quickly grew to hugh popularity. Numerous publishers followed such that Donnelley is credited with having launched the "Second Paperback Revolution." By 1877, so many publishers were issuing imitations, Donnelley decided to sell to real estate developer Norman T. Gasselte, who went on to incorporate as DONNELLY, GASSELTE & LOYD. Publication continued until February, 1879. The present author, 1830 - 1898, was the son an official in the Thames Commission. He was educated at Eton, Woolwich, and Cambridge, and was a regular contributor to Household Words, and to Chambers's Journal, which he edited from 1859 to 1874, and in which several of his works first appeared. He also edited the Cornhill Magazine from 1883 - 96. He wrote over 60 novels, a book of poems, and a volume of literary reminiscences. Given the cheap paper quality of the Lakeside Library series, and the oversized format, issues are exceedingly scarce, if not rare. Worldcat / OCLC locates zero copies. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description ReInk Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1874 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.
