About this Item: London J.M. Dent and Co. 1909, 1909. LIMITED SIGNED LARGE-PAPER ISSUE OF THE FIRST EDITION, one of only 750 numbered copies SIGNED by Arthur Rackham. This being one of the 600 copies for sale in England. With 13 impressive colour plates, two black and white illustrations and several line drawings as chapter heading or tail pieces, all by Arthur Rackham. 4to, publisher's original white buckram decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt on the front cover and the spine, t.e.g., others untrimmed, pictorially decorated endpapers with Rackham illustrations printed in gold, original rose silk ties. xv, 291pp. A stunning copy, absolutely brilliant, the cloth as fresh and white as anyone could ever hope to encounter, the text and plates pristine. A shockingly brilliant copy. A NEAR AS MINT, TRULY EXCEPTIONAL AND STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE SCARCE SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, this being one of the copies reserved for sale in Great Britain. This fine deluxe issue included one additional colourplate not included in the trade issues. Rackham has created a very special printing of Jonathan Swift’s 18th century satire. In 1899 an edition of this book had been issued with Rackham’s early drawings and no colour plates. As his reputation grew, the publisher asked for additional drawings and paintings and issued this new version. Rackham created a fresh set of illustrations which employed high-contrast linear designs tinged with washes of subtle color. The result was a collection of powerful images with striking emotional contrasts, well-suited to the spectacular travels of Gulliver. Rackham was able to graphically depict Gulliver kneeling on the floor with the Lilliputian tailors gazing up at him while measuring him for a new suit. And in his painting, 'Gulliver’s Combat With The Wasps', he dramatically portrays a handful of huge wasps swirling menacingly around Gulliver’s teetering form. The trials, tribulations, and exploits of Gulliver’s travels are magnificently portrayed here by the master illustrator. Seller Inventory # 28606

Brock (1870-1938) was a widely published English line artist and book illustrator who earned his first book commission at age twenty. He became a very successful illustrator, best known for his line work, initially in the tradition of Hugh Thomson, but he was also a skilled colourist. Brock's work varied with the sort of story he was illustrating, some of it refined and described as "sensitive to the delicate, teacup-and-saucer primness and feminine outlook of the early Victorian novelists," while other work was "appreciative of the healthy, boisterous, thoroughly English characters," i.e. soldiers, rustics, and "horsey types." Other illustrations were grotesquerys drawn to amuse children looking at or reading storybooks.   Condition Report Externally Spine – very good condition. Joints – very good condition.

About this Item: J M Dent & Co., London, 1898. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Publisher's Original Box. BROCK, H M & BROCK, C E (illustrator). 1st Thus. Comprising Sense and Sensibility (2 Vols xxxii, 163(1)pp and 218 (2)pp). Pride and Prejudice (2 Vols,vii,191(1)pp and 210pp) Mansfield Park (2 Vols vii,(ii)245(1)and 249 (3)pp) Emma 1898 (2 Vols,vi,245 (1) and 258(2)pp) Northanger Abbey (1 Vol iv,245(1)), Persuasion (1 vol iv,261(1) pp) . All volumes 8vo., 11.5 x 17.7cm pale green cloth with blue stamped decoration and gilt titles to the front and spine and blue stamped publisher's device to the rear. Top edge gilt with other edges uncut, decorative endpapers with gilt decoration, a JA monogram in blue and ribbon marker. All volumes have 6 colour plates with tissue guards including frontispiece which are by H M and C E Brock with the exception of the frontispiece to Sense and Sensibility which is a portrait of Austen by Johann Zoffany. The books are contained within their original publisher's box in the same colour cloth as the binding with gilt borders and crest to the front and titles to the top of the lid. A beautiful clean set that has been well protected by its original box. There is a little light cockling to the spine edge of the front boards of two volumes, and similarly to two spines, and a couple bruises and small marks to the rear boards of a couple of volumes (see images). The uncut edges and endpapers are unusually clean and have none of the usual browning that one associates with this edition. There is a small book sellers ticket for S. W. Simms of Bath on each front pastedown but no inscriptions, names or bookplates. The text pages, illustrations and tissue-guards are all clean, bright and unmarked. The only slight blemish is a little light spotting to the verso of the endpapers and facing page on most of the volumes. We have had a number of sets of this edition of Austen's works before but we have never seen one with its original publisher's box. The box has had some repairs and is a little grubby and faded but is complete and with all its original lining paper, and has protected its books wonderfully. With all tissue-guards and book mark ribbons present, this is a remarkably well preserved 1st edition of this highly sought after set, in stunning, fresh condition in its original box. If you would like any further information or images, please do not hesitate to ask. Seller Inventory # 001304

About this Item: London: J. M. Dent & Co., 1907, 1907. 6 volumes, octavo (190 x 115 mm). Contemporary blue half calf by Riviere, red and brown morocco labels, floral centre tool to spines in compartments separated by raised bands, blue cloth boards, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Housed in dark blue slipcase. Bookplate to front pastedown of each volume, spines faded and slightly rubbed, an excellent set. Each volumes with 24 coloured plates by C. E. Brock. First editions, illustrated by Brock in colour. C. E. Brock (1870-1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen for Macmillan's 1895-7 series, though he illustrated only Pride and Prejudice, with Hugh Thomson illustrating the other five titles. That series appeared in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite in colour, and also to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. The colourful costumes and interior decor depicted here are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, as Charles Brock and his brother Henry collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

About this Item: London: J. M. Dent & Co.; London & New York: M. Dent & Co. & G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1893 & 1895, 1895. 2 volumes, quarto (250 x 202 mm). Publisher's brown crushed morocco, spines lettered in gilt in compartments, frames in gilt to covers, wide gilt turn-ins, brown marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, brown silk page markers. Housed in the original marbled paper leather entry slipcases. Spines uniformly lightly faded; an excellent, bright set. Vignette half-titles. Title pages printed in red and brown, historiated chapter initials. Frontispieces and 8 full-page photogravures printed on Japanese silk paper, 32 smaller illustrations in the text, all duplicated in photogravures and printed on Japanese silk paper (except Vol. I, p. 154, as issued), all with tissue guards. First editions, large paper issues, extra-illustrated with additional photogravures. Numbers 140 of 160 copies (of which 100 were for sale in the UK and 50 in the US), and 124 of 125 copies (of which 100 were for sale in the UK and 25 in the US), respectively. Both works are printed on handmade paper and feature the photogravures specially printed on Japanese silk paper (the trade editions featured just five photogravures in each work). Described at the time by the Literary World as "an attractive and handsome gift or prize book" (The Literary World, 1893, p. 431), unusually for a deluxe gift book the volumes were published with uncoloured illustrations, rather than the colour-printed plates usually seen. The text in this edition is taken from Galland's 1821 translation and suitably abridged "virginibus puerisque" (note to contents page). The illustrator, John Dickson Batten's (1860–1932) most well-known achievements were his contributions to various fairy tale books, including a series by the Australian folklorist Joseph Jacobs.

About this Item: London: J. M. Dent and Company, 1907, 1907. Large octavo (252 x 200 mm). Contemporary art nouveau-style "vellucent" binding by Cedric Chivers of Bath in green morocco, spine and front cover lettered and tooled in gilt, hand-painted vellum vignette of Franciscan monk and crow to front cover, turn-ins ruled in gilt, green marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Spine and edges of covers faded to brown, rubbing to joints, 50 mm tear to pp. 477/8, some pages unopened. An excellent copy. Colour frontispiece and 23 colour plates tipped-in on dark green paper, 12 tinted plates on plain paper, illustrations in the text. First revised edition, first impression, of Rackham's illustrated edition of The Ingoldsby Legends, containing drawings not found in earlier editions. This copy is a beautiful example of Chivers's vellucent technique, which he developed in the early 1900s. In contrast to the earlier method used by Edwards of Halifax, the painting was not done on the underside of the transparent vellum, but on paper which was attached to the binding and covered with vellum. The surface of the vellum was then tooled in gold, thus enhancing the impressive effect. Rackham's illustrated edition of The Ingoldsby Legends was originally published in 1898 but Rackham chose to expand the work and redraw the illustrations so that "greater prominence could be given to the illustrations by better and larger reproductions, including a greater number of illustrations in colour" (Rackham's Prefatory Note). Latimore & Haskell p. 11; Riall p. 26. Seller Inventory # 123254
