About this Item: London: George Routledge & Sons, Ltd, 1945, 1945. 2 volumes, octavo. Original black cloth, spines lettered in gilt. Extremities lightly rubbed, spines rolled, ends and corners bumped, small knock to fore edges of volume I, contents toned, overall a very good set. Ownership inscription of artist Augustus John (1878–1961) to front free endpaper of volume I and one marginal annotation to page 99 of the same. First edition, first impression, of the author's influential first book. "The Open Society was, deservedly, a great success; and so was its author. It appeared in November 1945, and Popper arrived the following January [from New Zealand] to find himself a rising star in the British philosophical firmament. Gilbert Ryle wrote an enthusiastic review of The Open Society and its Enemies for Mind. Bertrand Russell wrote an enthusiastic recommendation on its behalf to his own American publisher, and spoke warmly of Popper's demolition of Plato when he delivered his well-known lecture 'Philosophy and politics' in October 1946 The 'open society' had obvious affinities with what John Stuart Mill had argued for in On Liberty: a society in which argument was the norm, where moral, political, scientific, and religious doctrines were constantly questioned and revised. What was unusual about The Open Society and its Enemies was not only its sustained assault on the enemies of the open society but its concentration on the way in which their philosophical errors became politically dangerous. Volume 1 depicted Plato as both a proto-communist and a proto-fascist, and emphasized the ways in which his theory of knowledge with its emphasis on the intuitive grasp of essences licensed intellectual authoritarianism, and therefore political authoritarianism. Volume 2, subtitled 'The high tide of prophecy', savaged Hegel and Marx for claiming to have arrived at the definitive truth about the future of humanity and the political implications of that truth" (ODNB).

About this Item: London George Routledge & Co. 1851, 1851. First Combined Edition and the Second English printing overall of each title, issued together for Routlege's Standard Novels series. With an illustration by John Gilbert featuring Hester Prynne with Pearl standing before the stocks. 8vo, publisher's very handsome, original dark green cloth lettered and decorated in gilt on the spine and blind-stamped in an elaborate overall design on the covers. This is the binding variant for Routledge's Standard Novels. 252, [2], 1-248, 4 ads. A lovely and very fresh copy of this rare issuance, the text extremely clean and fresh, only the frontispiece with some spotting as might be typical with the paper used, the cloth very clean and bright and sturdy and with only the most trivial signs of age. A really superior copy of this rare book. VERY SCARCE, the pirated editions of each work produced by George Routledge to compete with Bohn's editions. The sheets of both printings were distributed in various formats, this being the combined issue for the Standard Novels series. THE SCARLET LETTER here was printed only one year after the true first edition printed by Ticknor and Fields in America and THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES is printed in the same year as the first. Together, these two novels present Hawthorne at his best and offer his two most famous and important books. His story of Hester Prynne is considered by most to be his magnum opus. A literary masterpiece and surely one of the most important works in the oeuvre of colonial America, it, more than any other work of literature set the stage for an understanding of the puritan mind and beginnings of the American system. Both Bohn’s and Routlege’s 1851 editions were piracies, a circumstance not uncommon in transatlantic literature at the time, and the two companies competition for sales of this title is a testament to Hawthorne’s popularity. There were only a handful of American authors who were given much credence or esteem by English publishers of the time. But Hawthorne was unquestionably one of the few, and this was perhaps his most popular book. THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES is a pillar of nineteenth-century American literature, a staple of Gothic literature, and a major influence on later authors of both the horror and mystery genres.

OCLC/KVK record only three copies in library holdings worldwide.At the end of the nineteenth century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. "He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (H.G. Wells)."From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled?[a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!" (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).Wood 36. Dale, p. 76. Seller Inventory # 01797

About this Item: London - George Routledge and Sons Ltd, 1945. Hardcover. Condition: GOOD ONLY. First edition. A uncommon first edition of The Open Society and Its Enemies, in two volumes. A work that is extremely hard to find in an acceptable condition. Here it is better than most though with underlining and marks through the text. A hugely influential work criticising teleological historicism (a theory that states that history unfolds in accordance with universal laws), Popperwas highly critical of the totalitarianism of his day, and also particularly of Marx and Hegel, which warranted a ban of the book in The Soviet Union until 1992. The volumes are entitled The Spell of Plato and The High-Tide of Prophecy: Hegel and Marx. The importance andhigh regard held forthis work is such that it is oftenseen as some of the best nonfiction of the Twentieth Century. Condition: In cloth binding with gilt detailing. Externally sound, there are markings to the boards, as well as wear to the extremities, joints and backstrip. Internally, the pages are firmly bound but feature ink inscriptions and markings from correction fluidfrom a previous owner throughout, particularly to endpages, as well as a newspaper cutting adhered to pastedown. The text remains clear. Overall: GOOD ONLY. Seller Inventory # 046231
