Item Description: Cassell & Company Ltd.,, London, 1886. Fine Binding. Book Condition: Good. Reprint. KING SOLOMON'S MINES. H. Rider Haggard. Cassell & Company Ltd., London 1886 Reprint. 320pp plus folding map Fine Binding. This early edition has at some time been rebound in a poor half rexine binding to marbled paper covered boards. There are some rubs and bumping to the extremities, there is flaking and loss to the spine. However the contents are bright and tight and unmarked, this would make a splendid candidate for a quality rebinding. King Solomon's Mines (1885) is a popular novel by the Victorian adventure writer and fabulist Sir H. Rider Haggard. It tells of a search of an unexplored region of Africa by a group of adventurers led by Allan Quatermain for the missing brother of one of the party. It is the first English adventure novel set in Africa, and is considered to be the genesis of the Lost World literary genre. The book was first published in September 1885 amid considerable fanfare, with billboards and posters around London announcing "The Most Amazing Book Ever Written". It became an immediate best seller. By the late 19th century, explorers were uncovering ancient civilisations around the world, such as Egypt's Valley of the Kings, and the empire of Assyria. Inner Africa remained largely unexplored and King Solomon's Mines, the first novel of African adventure published in English, captured the public's imagination. Haggard wrote the novel as a result of a five-shilling wager with his brother, namely whether he could write a novel half as good as Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island (1883). He wrote it in a short time, somewhere between six and sixteen weeks between January and 21 April 1885. However, because the book was a complete novelty, it was rejected by one publisher after another. When, after six months, King Solomon's Mines finally was published, the book became the year's best seller; the only problem (much to the chagrin of those who had rejected the manuscript) was how to print copies fast enough.

Item Description: Cassell & Company, Limited, London, Paris, New York, and Melbourne, 1885. Full-Leather. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. None (illustrator). First Edition. This is the SECOND ISSUE OF the first edition although in a mixed state with first issue ads (5G.8.85) in the back of the book but second printing sheets. Book has been rebound in full leather with five raised spine bands and gold tooling designs and lettering. There is a tipped in note on stationary signed by Haggard, it reads: 5 Sept: 1916, Dear Berney Fichlias (not sure of spelling), That is very kind of you- We should much like to see his (can't make out word) & Yourselves -I think he was my nephew godfrey's chief. I suppose (can't make out word) the will appear about 3 (can't make out the two words above the name) SIGNED H. Rider Haggard" The stationary is from Ditchingham House, Norfolk, it also has a small stamp of hieroglyphics on the paper. The colored folding map is present and attached to the title page, 320 pages plus 16 pages of ads with two pages unopened. Wonderful copy of a classic work by Haggard along with his AUTOGRAPH. This appears to be an anomaly as the ads are the same as called for in the first printing although the misspelled words/gramatical errors were in the first 2 printings and the third printing is not supposed to have the ads???? Beautiful binding which incudes matching marbled end-papers and paste-downs. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 000093
