Item Description: Belfast; Simms and M'Intyre; London; W. S. Orr and Co. 1846., 1846. 3 Volumes, Octavo. First Appearance in English of "Le Comte De Monte Christo."; complete as issued in three parts of The Parlour Novelist and the first and only translation into English based upon the original text of the novel. Bound in recent half red calf over marbled paper covered boards. Green title labels, all edges with contemporary red speckling. Gilt centre tools to spine compartments. Very bright and sharp; near-fine. First appearing as a serial in the Parisian "Journal de Debats" between August 1844 and January 1846. The first book editions to be published were unsurprisingly in Paris and Brussels. The first Paris edition is extremely rare, auction records can trace no copy at auction in the last 50 years at least, although a copy of the second Paris edition sold at Christie's Paris in 2010 for a quarter of a million Euros. The novel was a tremendous success in France and there was something of an indecorous scuffle amongst English publishers eager to get their hands on it for domestic publication. Simms, M'Intyre and Orr published the first part of the novel in their "Parlour Novelist" in March 1846; barely two months after the final installment appeared in "Le Journal de Debats." Following the example of the Parisian publishers Simms and M'Intyre published the novel in parts with the first third of the text appearing under the title "The Chateau D' If" as volume 3 of The Parlour Novelist with the rest of the novel appearing in volumes 8 and 9 a little later. The fact that they were the first to obtain rights to such a prestigious novel was not lost on Simms M'Intyre who rather smugly proclaimed their priority in the preface: "In presenting the following translation to the English Public, the publisher's feel considerable gratification in being the first to make known to them this charming romance, the chef d'ouevre of the most dinstinguished of French novelists, ALEXANDRE DUMAS. Belfast, March 1, 1846" (The Chateau D'If, p. V) The Simms and M'Intyre translation by Emma Hardy (credited as being the first English translation in the foreword to the 2008 Oxford University Press edition of Monte Cristo) was clearly based on the original text of the novel as it first appeared in the Journal de Debats. The confirmation of this can be found in two rather minor but essential points of issue; the date of 24th of February in the first line of the novel (later revised to 28th February) and the spelling of "Christo" with an "h" throughout; this spelling was the one retained in the Paris and Brussels editions and was only changed to Cristo for the first illustrated edition (Paris, Au Bureau de L'Echo Des Feuilletons, 1846). The second English translation was the one commissioned by Chapman and Hall. This was based upon the revised text of the novel, with the dat of 28th of February in the first line and the "h" dropped from Christo. The source text was most likely the above mentioned L'Echo Des Feuilletons edition. According to Munro and Sadleir the Chapman and Hall edition (May) appeared after the Simms M'Intyre Parlour Novelist vol. 3 (March). Complete sets of the 3 volumes of the Simms M'Intyre edition are very rare. OCLC records no copies of three volume sets, and only three sets of the Parlour Novelist series containing these volumes (two of which are in the British Library and one in Cambridge). Even odd volumes appear extremely scarce with arguably the largest and most comprehensive Dumas collection (The FW Reed Dumas Collection in Auckland) holding only the first volume. ABPC records no copies of any of the three volumes, and no sets of the Parlour Novelist. A scarce and important edition of one of the most famous creations in the history of the novel.

Item Description: Couverture rigide. Book Condition: Bon. Edition originale. Alexandre Dumas. Stockholm, Fontainebleau et Rome, trilogie dramatique sur la vie de Christine, cinq actes en vers avec prologue et épilogue, représenté à Paris sur le Théâtre Royal de l'Odéon le 30 mars 1830. Paris, Barba éd. 1830. EDITION ORIGINALE. In-8 demi veau turquoise à coins à la bradel, dos orné, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Couverture d'origine conservée. (4) ff.,191 pages. Dos insolé et quelques frottements. Frontispice lithographié replié par Charlet d'après Raffet représentant Christine et Paula, non rogné (Carayon). Dédicace de l'auteur sur le titre probablement à Frédéric Soulié (écriture peu lisible).Frédéric Soulié,romancier, auteur dramatique, critique, journaliste français et ami de Alexanre Dumas (1800-1847). Vicaire III, 337-338 - Carteret I, 224. Destinée à la ComédieFrançaise, mais arrêtée par la censure, la pièce ne fut créée à l'Odéon qu'en 1830. Les nombreuses versions connuesdeChristinetémoignent de l'intérêt qu'y attachait Alexandre Dumas. La pièce peut être considérée comme la première grande œuvre dramatique ambitieuse de Dumas. D'ailleurs, la pièce ne prendra le nom de drame que tardivement, Dumas lui préférant timidement le nom de tragédie. Dans ses Mémoires, l'auteur expliquecomment, le soir de la première, VICTOR HUGOet ALFRED DE VIGNY avaient réécrit en partie le texte, l'allégeant en même temps d'unecentaines de vers. Signé par l'auteur. Bookseller Inventory # 1143

Item Description: L'Imprimerie de Crapelet 1835-1841, Paris, 1835. Book Condition: Very Good Plus. First edition. 4to. 26.5 by 18 cm. 192 hand-colored engraved plates starting with Clovis and continuing on to the Napoleonic era, with the final portrait being of Eugene de Beauharnais. This is then a chronological presentation of the most important French personages -- monarchs, courtiers, warriors, poets, essayists and novelists, artists, saints, scientists, politicians, etc. The portraits accompany biographies of the individuals. Other than Napoleon, these articles run six to sixteen double columned pages, and so the treatments are most certainly not superficial glosses as one might find in a typical glossary of the famous or even a standard encyclopedia. (Napoleon, being the towering figure that he was, is treated to four articles and four portraits, the longest of the articles being 29 pp.) These pieces are written by many different authors, too numerous to list. In any case, it is surely the plates that are of greatest interest, some of awhich, among the more ancient, are artists' imaginings of how the individuals might have looked, since there is generally no accurate visual record of their appearance, if even there are paintings from the individuals' lifetime. The bright and varied coloring of the plates greatly enhances them, and this coloring is often enriched with gum arabic. (Note that this work is not always colored, and it is also uncommon to find the full complement of plates as are here. As with the writers of the biographical articles, the designers (artists) and engravers are too numerous to list. Some light scattered foxing, and more general browning to the pages. Light wear to outer hinges, but overall a clean, sound set. Quarter Morocco. Marbled Boards. Bookseller Inventory # 004583

Item Description: Hippolyte Souverain, 1844. Couverture rigide. Book Condition: Satisfaisant. Edition originale. DUMAS (Alexandre). Gabriel Lambert, Paris, Hippolyte Souverain, 1844. In-8 relié demi-cuir du temps, dos lisse et titre doré, 2 volumes. Edition originale. Edition originale d’une insigne rareté, facilement identifiable par son erreur de pagination du chapitre I qui commence page 17. Tome 1 : fx-t., t., 295 pp., table ; tome 2 : t., 303 pp. (la dernière chiffrée par erreur 383), table. La reliure est frottée, quelques timbres humides d’un cabinet de lecture, manque marginal de papier sans atteinte au texte au tome 1 (pp. 1, 151, 209 & 227) et au tome 2 (pp. 11, 155& 303), déchirure sans perte sur la p. 147 du tome 2, pas de faux-titre au tome 2, mouillure claire et rousseurs, autres défauts mineurs, état général moyen à bon pour un ouvrage qu’il est difficile aujourd’hui de se procurer. Dans ce roman méconnu, Alexandre Dumas aborde des thèmes d’une remarquable profondeur (le désir d’ascension sociale, la noblesse, le bagne, le suicide) à travers une enquête qu’il mène après avoir reconnu le visage d’un forçat, celui du héros de son roman, lors d’un passage à Toulon en 1835. “Gabriel Lambert is unquestionably the work of Dumas, and it is written with all of his characteristic dash and verve. Though Dumas was writing about a character he despised, he perhaps put more of himself into the novel than he intended.” writes Arthur D. Rypinski. (Vicaire, I, 363 ; Clouzot, 98 ; Parran, 51 ; Glinel, 388). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1476361048525

Item Description: Alphonse Lemerre, Paris, 1873. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Book Condition: Good. First Edition. Publisher's green cloth, rubbed a bit and cloth split at the front hinge. Mild foxing, a little heavier in a few spots, small tear to final page. Frontis of the author. vi, 1155, 24pp. Two portraits of the author. Cagle 171, Vicaire 297, Bitting 135, Oberle 238.Though due to the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian war, Dumas never saw the publication of his great work on cuisine, it remains a monument to a truly bracing love of food - an unlike most of his novels, but all accounts he actually wrote the whole thing himself. A magnificent mix of encyclopedia, recipe book, anecdote and nonsense. He has Jacques Coeur bringing back the first turkey's from Turkey in 1432. Charmingly, the entry for madeleine reminds him of a "petite aventure" that he recounts. On truffles: "We asked the wise about the truffle and after two thousand years of discussion they responded as on the first day: We don't know. We asked the truffle herself and she responded: Eat me and worship God." Size: 4to (quarto). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo.

Item Description: G. Lubrano E C. Editori, Napoli, 1863. Wraps. Book Condition: Good. First Edition. Bianca Capello, Dramma in Cinque Atti versi DI F. Dall'Ongaro, Preceduto da un Racconto Storico di Alessandro Dumas. Napoli , G. Lubrano E C. Editori, 1863. A rare book in it's own right, this copy bears the name of Henry Wadworth Longfellow on the front wrap, "Henry W. Longfellow, 1868." Not an autograph or inscription per se, one could assume this title was part of his personal collection/library based on the location at the top middle of the title page/wrap cover. Longfellow visited Italy around 1868 so it was presumably purchased while he was there. This is a fragile book in pale blue printed wraps. The front cover is mostly loose held on by what appears to be very old clear (now yellowed) binders paper repair tape that wraps around the spine to the back cover. There is a quarter size chip at the top right of the cover, repaired again with binders tape and a small piece of paper. None of the binders tape covers text but several pieces run on to the lines framing the title. This tape would likely be easy for a conservator to remove with little damage. The back cover is intact, somewhat foxed. The title page is also missing a small piece in the top right corner, not affecting any text, and a slighty rough outside edge, otherwise the interior pages of the book are quite bright and clean. A worn but preserved copy of this rare, fragile title, arguably from the collection of one of America's most famous poets. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 117 pages; Signed by Notable Personage, Unrelated.
