Item Description: London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1820. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. First edition, with half-title and publisher's advertisements present. Original publisher's brown cloth and brown paper boards, with white paper label to the spine, lettered in black. Some wear to the extremities, mostly to spine with some splitting to the upper spine and a few small stains to the covers; bookplate to front pastedown, some scattered spots, otherwise a clean copy free of any repairs or restoration. An attractive example of a completely unsophosticated copy in the extremely scarce publisher boards. Keats' most popular collection of poetry, Lamia, Isabella, the Eve of St. Agnes is seldom found in the original publisher's boards. A scarce title to begin with, copies are often found in contemporary or modern fine bindings and are typically lacking the half-title leaf and eight pages of publisher's terminal advertisements. This copy has both the ads and the half-title and is entirely free of repairs or restorations. Lamia, Isabella, the Eve of St Agnes is Keats' third and final volume of poetry. In addition to the title narrative poems, it included Keats' renowned odes, including "Ode to A Nightingale," "Ode on a Grecian Urn," "Ode on Melancholy," "Ode to Psyche," and "To Autumn," among others. Widely considered his best and most acclaimed work, these odes are, as the Encyclpaedia Britannica proclaims, "Keats' most distinctive poetic achievement." Additionally, this volume includes the unfinished "Hyperion, a Fragment," which Keats, still discouraged by the negative critical reviews of Poems (1817) and Endymion (1818), was hesitant to publish and only agreed to include it in this volume at the insistence of his publishers. Notably, Keats produced these poems, widely considered his best and most acclaimed work, during the most turbulent period of his short life. In 1819, Keats mourned the loss of his brother Thomas and grew increasingly depressed as a result of his waning health coinciding with the waxing of his love for Fanny Brawn. Still, Keats was able to harness the emotions of this period to produce some of his most powerful verse and securing his status as one of the leading poets of the Romantic period.

Item Description: for Taylor and Hessey, London, 1818. First edition, second issue with imprint on verso of half-title reading "T. Miller, Printer, Noble Street, Cheapside." and with errata leaf in two states. ix, [iv], 207, [1], [4, ads date 1 May 1818]. 8vo. First edition, second issue, a superb copy in original boards of the second of only three lifetime publications by Keats, comprising his longest single sustained poem, famous for its opening line: "A thing of beauty is a joy for ever." So savage and malevolent were the reviews of this poem by Blackwoods and the Quarterly--"Lockhart found it exquisitely funny that an apothecary, a fellow who confessedly knew no Greek, who had to read Homer in a translation, should venture on a classic theme" (MacGillivray)--that Keats' supporters thereafter blamed the reviewers for Keats' early death. This copy has the second issue imprint to the verso of the half-title "T. Miller, Printer, Noble Street, Cheapside" and includes both states of the errata leaf (pp. xi-xii) with 5-line errata and 1-line erratum. MacGillivray A2; Ashley III:13; Tinker 1419; Hayward 232 Uncut in original publisher's boards, printed paper title label to spine. Light wear to covers, some sporadic foxing and toning to text. Bookplate. In a custom brown cloth clamshell box ix, [iv], 207, [1], [4, ads date 1 May 1818]. 8vo First edition, second issue with imprint on verso of half-title reading "T.

Item Description: Joh. Enschede for Halcyon Press / A.A.M. Stols, Maastricht, Brussels and London, 1930. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: near fine. John Buckland Wright (illustrator). First edition. One of 16 extra-illustrated copies (16 full-page illustrations, the regular edition has 11) on pearl-white imperial Japanese vellum w. 3 extra suites of the portrait and the plates: one on pearl-white imperial Japanese vellum, one on Japanese vellum, and one on Dutch Pannekoek paper with the watermark "The Halcyon Press A.A.M. Stols Maastricht". Wright has signed every extra image in full (48 total). Beautifully bound (original binding) by Louis Malcorps (signed) in cherry Niger morocco. Wright's image of a female nude blocked in gold on the upper cover. Contents fine, binding near fine (tiny 1/16 inch nick in top gutter), spine just a touch lighter than the boards. A very beautiful binding. This copy comes with a small portfolio containing the original prospectus and 3 rejected proofs of the plates, signed and/or annotated in pencil by Buckland Wright. Note that the colophon calls for five rejects. These rejects are inferior strikes on inferior paper of the final-state plates, not variant images, so not very interesting either way. The entire production is housed in a custom morocco-edged slipcase with only minor shelfwear. The pearl-white Japanese vellum plates are incredibly vivid, the best strikes of any John Buckland Wright images that I have seen. Reid A1(b). Bookseller Inventory # 3945

Item Description: [London? c.1900]. Title within decorated border, and decorated initials. Small 4to. [215 x 175 x 15 mm]. [2]ff, 54, [2] pp. Contemporary binding by Bagguley of Newcastle-Under-Lyme (signed in gilt on the front turn-in and with their ink "Sutherland Patent" stamp on the verso of the front free endleaf) of blue goatskin, the covers with a gilt single fillet border, smooth spine lettered in gilt with a single fillet at the head and foot. Vellum doublures elaborately tooled by the "Sutherland" process in blue, purple and gilt to a strapwork design with an arabesque centre, blue watered-silk endleaves, top edge gilt, other edges uncut. (Tips of the corners worn). A fine example of a "Sutherland Binding", using the process patented by George Bagguley in 1895 (Patent Office Specification no.18737). Named after the Duchess of Sutherland, the process involved the application of colour tooling, combined with conventional gilt tooling, on vellum doublures. The best of the designs were by Leon V. Solon, the son of a ceramic artist. Other examples were designed by Dorothy Talbot and Charles Connor. As usual, the exterior has been left plain. George Thomas Bagguley (b.1860) established himself as a bookseller in Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire in 1890. Though the firm appears in the Directories from 1892 until 1940 as booksellers and not bookbinders, binding was carried out on the premises. The work was often of the highest quality, as Bagguley employed a number of the best finishers, including Louis Genth and Thomas E. Caley. Bookplates of Albert Henry Wiggin and "Selden".

Item Description: Martin Secker & Warburg Ltd, London, 1971. Hardback. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. This fine unmarked copy is bound in cloth covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine, tight, white, bright and square. The price clipped dust wrapper is in very good condition and has now been covered in clear removable protective film. International postal rates are calculated on a book weighing 1 Kilo, in cases where the book weighs less then postage will be reduced accordingly. Where the book weighs more than 1 Kilo increased charges will be quoted. This biography was written only a few years after Dorothy Parker's death and is based on accounts of people who actually knew her, understood her unique personality and loved her. It is very well written and it is also very honest and informative about her "life and times", the happy and the unhappy moments of her life, the great poverty and the great riches, her New York years, but also those spent in Hollywood. Parker once said that she did not care what people would write about her as long as it was not the truth. The author has not taken her advice, in his book he perfectly captures the moods of the enigma that Dorothy Parker was, and the flavour of the twenties and thirties in this remarkable book.

Item Description: Wind and Harlot Press, (Shaker Heights, OH), 1986. Delrue, Paul C. (illustrator). 12pp. One of twenty-three copies. Keats's ballad of a knight wooed by a beautiful and wild "faery's child" and then abandoned by her, haggard and pale, on the cold hillside. In a designer binding by Paul Delrue depicting the setting at the poem's beginning and end: the countryside after harvest has ended, a barren and empty landscape with a sloping hill and the silhouettes of birds overhead. A rustic fence borders the pale green, tan, and brown fields, all created using Delrue's signature "Lacunose artwork." In this technique, Delrue covered the boards first with tan goatskin, and then many layers of leather in autumnal hues, some puckered and others flat, were overlapped and alternately sanded down smooth and varnished with PVA to create various effects. The Lacunose panels are set onto the goatskin background intentionally askew, echoing the knight's disorientation, and bordered by blind-stamped circles. The endpapers are grey and violet paper handmade by the artist with flecks of gold and silver. In a handmade-paper chemise and a cloth and handmade paper-covered box with a gusseted pocket for the book. Extremely fine. (3 by 2 1/8; 77x53mm). Bookseller Inventory # 25741
