About this Item: Moxon 1834., 1834. First Edition, 2 vols, publisher's-style original morocco, spines elegantly panelled in gilt. Sm.8vos a.e.g., Vol 1 without half-titles [required in Vol 2?]. Neat early 19thC inscription of Frances Anne By, Selsfield Lodge. A very bright attractive copy. Taylor's second work. Probably issued in a small edition only : his first work was a flop, and Moxon only agreed to publish Philip Van Artevelde at Taylor's own risk. In fact it gained for Taylor 'a permanent place in literature . It was modelled upon the Elizabethan drama, but was not intended . for the stage. It has, however, great interest as a thoughtful psychological study' [DNB]. Taylor moved in the Southey/Wordsworth & Benthamite circles and was a friend of Tennyson and many other writers. **** To confirm availability before ordering, please click the link Ask Bookseller A Question.

About this Item: London: Edward Moxon, 1853. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. London: Edward Moxon, 1853. FIRST EDITION. x, [ii], 520pp. Original embossed cloth binding, yellow endpapers. Crude repair to the front hinge. Autographed (signed) manuscript (hand written) letter from Lander to an unidentified recipient and I have translated his handwriting as best I can: “My dear Sir There is no danger that I should send negligently anything written by our friend Milnes. He has brought the graces into English Poetry of which they were very shy before. Even in the most harmonious of all that we wrote in rhyme, Felicia Hemans the gone is not so tight as it should be. The two best poems of our time are hers, Casabianca and Ivan. However, is there anything in Pindar or Sophocles that agitated you so mightily? I will keep your book a whole week and then return it. What weather! I wish I were with you anywhere in Egypt save and except under those rocks past Minyeh. Faithfully yours W S Landor Landor met Milnes in Italy in the early 1830’s and there is no record of him having visited Egypt which doesn’t assist us in identifying the addressee. He is documented to have had visits from Tennyson and Carlyle in the 1850’s. This letter is assumed to have been written around the time of the book publication date. Undated. Faded spine with wear to the rear joint, faded spine with gilt titles, front hinge crudely repaired and rear hinge strained with webbing showing. Walter Savage Landor (30 January 1775 17 September 1864) was an English writer and poet. His best known works were the prose Imaginary Conversations, and the poem Rose Aylmer, but the critical acclaim he received from contemporary poets and reviewers was not matched by public popularity. As remarkable as his work was, it was equalled by his rumbustious character and lively temperament. In a long and active life of eighty-nine years Landor produced a considerable amount of work in various genres. This can perhaps be classified into four main areas prose, lyric poetry, political writings including epigrams and Latin. His prose and poetry have received most acclaim.

About this Item: London 1827., 1827. Sylvia; or, the May Queen. A lyrical drama. London: published for John Taylor, by James Duncan; and sold by J. A. Hessey, and John Hatchard and Son, 1827. vii(1), 217(1) pp. [Bound with, at the front:] Sterling, John. Poems. London: Edward Moxon, 1839. xiii(3), 245(1) pp. Two vols. in one, sm. 8vo, 19th-century half calf, spine gilt (a bit rubbed).First edition of Darley's most important work. Presentation copy, inscribed by the published on the half-title, "With the author's compts." George Darley and his friend John Clare are the two major poets of the brief interval between the late Romantics and the early work of Tennyson. This verse play is an interesting attempt to revive the form of Elizabethan drama. The effort was much admired by both Coleridge and Mrs. Browning. Clare wrote to the publisher John Taylor: "Darley's play I make no doubt is a good one and I shall feel anxious for its publication and happy at his success, for I esteem him both as an author, a poet and a friend." The original edition is very uncommon; the NUC lists five copies (NN, MH, CtY, IU, InU). Hayward 240; CBEL III, 376.First edition of John Sterling's major book of verse. Sterling was a young writer of Irish descent who also published two novels, before his death of consumption in 1844, at the age of 38; Julius Charles Hare, the dedicatee of this volume, published a collection of Sterling's tales and essays in 1847. Sterling had many literary friends, including Emerson, with whom he carried on a correspondence. He is now chiefly remembered as the subject of a remarkable biography by Carlyle, published in 1851: "Johnson for once writes upon Boswell." -- DNB. Bound without a half-title. CBEL III, 1306. Two important titles in one volume, in very good condition; with the bookplate of J. Cresswell. Seller Inventory # B1715

About this Item: Edward Moxon & Co./Day & Son, London, 1863. Wraps. First Edition. Included are a first issue copy (with the solid diamond and rule ornament on the title) of the 4-page leaflet (4-1/4" x 6-3/4") published by Edward Moxon & Co. and the version illuminated by Owen Jones (8-1/4" x 11-1/2") and published by Day & Son Lithographers to the Queen. Both are housed in a cloth slipcase with a leather label. Accompanying the two texts is a one-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) completely in Tennyson's hand dated 30 March 1863, addressed to "Gentlemen" and obviously directed to Day & Son. In full: "Accept my best thanks for your kindness. I think you made very beautiful use of my words and I do not wonder at the applause illicited [sic] by your illumination. Believe me. Your very obedient servant. A. Tennyson." A rare example of Tennyson praising one of his publishers. Written in honor of Princess Alexandra of Denmark whom the Prince of Wales married on 10 March 1863. The poem was presented to the royal family after the Princess's triumphal procession through London and just before the wedding. Reports were that the Queen read the poem with much pleasure and some excitement, perhaps due in part to the fact that every sentence in the poem is exclamatory. The illuminated version is disbound and has a faint running stain in the lower left corner almost entirely in the margin. The signature is a bit faded with mounting traces on the verso of the letter. Near Fine. Seller Inventory # 003307

About this Item: Edward Moxon, Dover Street, London, 1852. Leder. Condition: Sehr gut. Octavo, ca. 197 x 124 mm. vi, [1], [1 blank], 165, [2], [1 blank] pp. - 8 pp. (List of Books). Ganzleder Handeinband mit reicher Vergoldung. Sprache: Englisch, (Einband minimalst berieben, erste und letzte Blätter braunfleckig, sehr schönes Exemplar). Contemporary olive morocco (203 x 133 x 17,5 mm), spine with five raised bands, panelled and lettered in gilt, richly gilt with gilt fleural tools and lines, boards with gilt line panels. Top edge gilt, burgundy endleaves. Bound by Riviere & Son, and signed on upper turn-in. This is the first edition of the Browning Essay. Edward Moxon bought twenty three letters at a Sotheby & Wilkinson sale, 12 May 1851. The vendor of these letters was the bookseller William White who had obtained them, with other items including Byron forgeries, from 'Major George Gordon de Luna Byron', also known as DeBibler, who claimed to be the illegitimate son of the poet Byron by a Spanish lady. The son of Sir Francis Palgrave realised that Letter XXI to William Godwin from Florence was cribbed from a letter to his father. "An ingenious forgery perpetrated by an impostor, claiming to be the [natural] son of Lord Byron. Two genuine letters, which happened to be in Moxon's hands, were included. The fraud was discovered, to the chagrin of Browning and Moxon, who at once destroyed all obtainable copies of the book" (Granniss). The two genuine letters in the present volume are No. V to Sir James Henry Lawrence, August 17, 1812 (= Ingpen #186; de Ricci 186) and No. XXIII to Keats, Pisa, July 27, 1820 (= Ingpen #484; de Ricci 484). "One of the most ingenious literary forgeries of modern times is recalled by a rare work which a London bookdealer now is offering for sale for $375. It is an octavo volume published in 1852 by Moxon and entitled 'Letters of P. B. Shelley, with an introductory essay by Robert Browning. Browning really wrote the introduction, but not one of the twenty-five letters in it is by Shelley. These letters purported to have been sent by Percy Bysshe Shelley, the eminent English poet, to various of his friends. They were clever imitations of his hand-writing, and bore the postmarks of cities in which it was known that Shelley had resided. The book made a sensation. Browning's preface is one of his most admired pieces of prose writing. Moxon sent copies of the work to a number of distinguished literary men, among others Lord Alfred Tennyson. Francis Turner Palgrove, son of Sir Francis Palgrove, the historian, was at the time a guest of Lord Tennyson. He picked up the book one day and opened it at a letter from Shelley to Godwin, his father-in-law, which seemed strangely familiar to him. He read on and found that the letter was a plagiarism of an article which his father had contributed to the Quarterly Review in 1840. Moxon, when informed of this discovery, said that he had bought the letters at a public sale, and that they seemed authentic. The handwriting appeared genuine, the seal was Shelley's and the addresses bore the stamp of the Post Offices of the italian towns where Shelley had lived. It happened that, at the same sale, the poet's son, Sir Percy Florence Shelley, had bought other letters of his father, which were of a private and personal character. These letters were found to be at utter variance with well-known facts. Moxon at once suppressed the book, the auctionneer said that the letters had come to him from a bookseller named W. White. White, in turn, said that he had bought them from an unknown woman who claimed to have received them from Fletcher, Lord Byron's servant. Further search revealed that behind this unknown woman was the forger, George Gordon Byron, alias De Gibler. This adventurer bore a striking resemblance to Lord Byron, had assumed his name, and had passed himself off as Byron's natural son. He almost succeeded in palming off on a publisher some unedited remains of Lord Byron. As soon as the facts about the letters became known he disappeared (.)" (New York Times, Buch.
