About this Item: Rand, McNally & Company, 1899. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. This is an early American edition of "The Master of Ballantrae" by the great Scottish author, Robert Louis Stevenson. It was published in 1899 by Rand McNally in its "Antique Library" series, and bound in a very handsome ribbed silk cloth binding , ornately embellished in embossed gilt and black. In an old advertisement, Rand, McNally described this binding thusly: "This series comprises titles carefully selected from the standard works of the world's greatest authors, suitable for any library and attractive to readers of the most refined tastes. The books are well printed on extra laid paper, trimmed edge, equal to and indistinguishable from the best hand-made, and are bound in olive silk ribbed cloth, with richly ornamental and artistic gold and embossed side and back stamp, and gold topped." ******************************* Stevenson's story is exciting, relating a deadly feud that arose between two brothers of the nobility, during the Jacobite uprising in Scotland. It all came about when Bonnie Prince Charlie raised the Stuart Banner - splitting the sympathies of the Scots. It's an international adventure, starting in Scotland, and thence spreading to France, India, Canada, North Carolina, and New York State. There is much action, including Pirates, treachery, and buried treasure. No one could tell a good, gripping story like Robert Louis Stevenson! ******************************** SERIES : The Antique Library. TITLE : The Master of Ballantrae - A Winter's Tale. AUTHOR : Robert Louis Stevenson(1850 - 1894). IMPRINT : Rand, McNally & Company. PLACE : Chicago and New York. DATE : No Date [ But 1899 . from bibliographical sources]. EDITION : Reprint . Early American Edition. SPECIAL ATTRIBUTES : Exceptionally well-preserved ornate binding. Trade hardcover; Has rubricated title page; [ii] - [p. vii] - 282, plus 4 pages of publisher list; approximately 4 7/8" x 7 1/4" (12mo); olive silk-ribbed cloth with gilt lettering on spine and front board and embossed decorative embellishments in gilt and black, with simple line borders in black about all. Rear board blank. Top edge gilt. ****************************** CONDITION - NEAR FINE - This 119 year old book is previously owned , but in exceptionally well-preserved condition, with the following particulars noted: EXTERIOR - Compression and a touch of abrasion to the spine extremities; there are a few barely perceptible minute spots on the front board (these are more easily seen in our frontal view picture, than when viewed in actuality) - else the boards are clean and bright with strong color and with the gilt lettering and embellishment still bright; top edge gilt somewhat rubbed but still fairly bright; text-block fore- and bottom-edges toned, else clean. Exterior presents beautifully. BINDING - The binding is not as tight as when issued, but no leaves are detached or loose, and the whole remains solid. INTERIOR - There is an inked signature with date written on the front free end-paper ("W. C. Kimball / Jan'y 1901) - else the interior is clean and free of marking - quite presentable.

About this Item: Various 1888-1921, London, 1888. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good-. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Condition good to very good. A few volumes with inner hinges split at the gutters. "Island Nights' Entertainments", which is lacking the leaf with the list of the author's works preceeding the half-title page, otherwise all volumes complete with all plates and endpapers present. Three of the titles by Stevenson are first editions: "Catriona" (1893); "Island Nights' Entertainments" (1893); and "Memories" (1912). The remainder of the titles are early reprint editions. "A Lowden Sabbath Morn" has a signed inscription from the illustrator, A. S. Boyd. Provenance: From the collection of New Zealand book collector, journalist, and author Pat Lawlor (1893-1979). 8 of the titles have one of Lawlor's ex-libris bookplates, in 3 different styles. Lawlor wrote about his Stevenson collection in his book "Books and Bookmen" (1954), pages 20-21: "Until recently he was with me entire in the Tusitala Edition which edition never appealed to me. I sold them and am now rebuilding my Stevensonia in the best manner - first and special editions. In such quests I am fortunate. Soon I had illustrated editions, with those appealing maps of Treasure Island, Kidnapped and The Island Nights' Entertainments [. . .] The special edition of the poems published by the Florence Press in 1913 is in its binding a perfect combination of white and gold. George Saintsbury and his father before hime were not so fastidious in their choice of wines as I am in the format of my bookish favourites. I now have my favourite Jekyll and Hyde in three editions including [. . .] a 'near first' published by Longman's in their quaint school-book style - the sailing ship monogram in the left hand corner [. . .] The uniform or even definitive editions become monotonous after a while. We may not change our favourite wines but we may our 'midnight darlings'. After all we are only putting them in more appealing dresses." The 19 titles are: (1) "Catriona". London: Cassell and Company, 1893. (2) "Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes". London: Seeley & Co., 1902. (3) "Father Damien: An Open Letter to the Reverend Doctor Hyde of Honolulu from Robert Louis Stevenson". London: Chatto & Windus, 1910.
