Item Description: London: J. M. Dent & Co.; E. P. Dutton & Co., New York, 1907–09, 1907. 6 volumes, octavo. Original gilt decorative vellum, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, pictorial endpapers. Northanger Abbey: front hinge starting, rear hinge partly cracked but holding, but text block sound, Sense & Sensibility: discolouration to rear board from dampstaining, also affecting final few pages. Otherwise a beautiful set, in bright vellum. Each volume with 24 colour plates by C. E. Brock. First Brock editions of the complete novels of Jane Austen, rare in the original vellum bindings. C. E. Brock (1870–1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen within Macmillan's 1895–7 series (with introductions by Austin Dobson), Brock illustrating only Pride and Prejudice, and Hugh Thomson illustrating the other 5 titles. This series was only illustrated 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, this time in colour, and to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. Dent's "Series of English Idylls" thus presents the first Brock illustrations for the complete Austen set and the first in colour. Brock was elected as a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1908, and certainly his vision of Austen's world, its gentle graces and sharp ironies, is best expressed, as here, in colour. Furthermore, the colourful costumes and interior decor depicted in these illustrations are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, for 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.

Item Description: London and New York J. M. Dent and Sons, Aldine House and E.P Dutton and Co. 1927, 1927. Third and most complete edition, limited to 1600 copies, with 10 extra illustrations not included in the two first printings. 22 full page and double-page illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley including the fine frontispiece, the Merlin drawing and the design for the original cover, also with numerous designs and illustrations throughout the text, as well as a profusion of decorated initials and chapter headings. Thick, large 4to, publisher’s original dark green polished cloth with spine and covers beautifully and fully decorated in gilt after designs by Beardsley. lv, 538 pp. A very handsome, superior copy, beautifully preserved, the cloth bright with strong gilt and no fading. The textblock very clean and crisp, the hinges tight and strong, corners sharp, only the most minute bit of age evidence along the tips or extremities. AN IMPORTANT PRINTING OF THIS VERY BEAUTIFUL BOOK, and this a very desirable and strong copy. The third edition contains an extra 10 illustrations added in the text, the first edition to do so, as well as the original binding design (which was never used) and a full size facsimile of the Merlin drawing, previously used on a smaller scale. The text is that of Caxton’s printed for the first time in 1485 at Westminster in London. This book represents Aubrey Beardsley's first commissioned work, undertaken when he was not yet twenty. While working at an insurance office in London, Beardsley frequently visited the Jones and Evans bookshop in Cheapside, where he got to know Frederick Evans. Mr. Evans allowed the artist to trade drawings for books on occasion, and it was Evans who suggested to J. M. Dent that Beardsley should be the artist for Mr. Dent's new edition of the Arthurian tales. A suggestion well made and one to which 20th century printing owes much. The commission, which came in 1892 was to "design and illustrate an ambitious edition of Malory’s ‘Le Morte d’Arthur’ which was intended to rival the Kelmscott Press books on their own ground.(E)lements beside the pale remnants of Pre-Raphaelitism were at work fertilizing (Beardsley’s) developing talent, and what was seen by its devisers as an emulation of Morris and Burne-Jones turned out in the execution more like a parody of them--a parody which annoyed Morris to the point at which he contemplated legal action. It may well not have been a deliberate parody: it is simply that already, willy-nilly, the ‘strong medieval decorative feeling’ of Morris was mixed, as Walter Crane noted, ‘with a curious weird Japanese-like spirit of diablerie and grotesque, as of an opium dream’." Beardsley’s life was short, he died of tuberculosis at the age of 26. In those few years he managed however to leave a great and lasting artistic legacy and a fascinating personal history as well.

Item Description: 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 copy 21 a very early number 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 ivory 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 fine copy, very bright and extremely well preserved, internally near as pristine and with perfect plates, the ivory cloth ever so slightly mellowed on the spine panel. Engraved armorial bookplate on front blank free-fly of George Kitchin, possibly George William Kitchin, first Chancellor of the University of Durham and the last Dean of Durham Cathedral to govern the university. A 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. Bookseller Inventory # 27251

"Satirical and critical in subject and often extravagant in style, Peacock's novels caricatured contemporary figures by the device of bringing a group of thinly disguised eccentrics together and letting their conversation, often ridiculous, fill the book. Headlong Hall (1816) satirizes the idealistic aspirations of Romanticism; in Crotchet Castle (1831), the central characters try to determine the most desirable period of history?Melincourt (1817), Nightmare Abbey, and Gryll Grange (1860-61) are other novels. Peacock's satirical essay 'The Four Ages of Poetry' (1820) provoked Shelley to write a serious rebuttal in his Defense of Poetry (1821)" (Benét's Reader's Encyclopedia). Bookseller Inventory # 03977

Neat ink ownership signature to front blanks, some minor wear to gutters, an excellent set. Colour lithographic frontispiece to each volume and 51 plates with tissue guards. First Brock editions. An instant success, this was the first of several collaborations between brothers C. E. and H. M. Brock for J. M. Dent. The Brocks illustrated five volumes each, making skilful use of the new printing technique of colour lithography. They "worked closely together in the same studio and gained stimulation from each other. One of their influences was undoubtedly the work of Hugh Thomson, but their accuracy in period settings was greater than his, they collected Georgian furniture and clothing to study from Although meticulous in signing their drawings, H.M.'s can usually be told apart by their thicker ink lines and bolder handling" (The Dictionary of 19th Century British Book Illustrators).
