Item Description: Printed for Hunt & Clarke, vols I & II; Whittaker, Treacher & Arnot, vol. III & IV. 1828-29, 1828. Front. port. bound in to vol. IV. ?S BIOG? stamps on titles (from the Bradford library). Rebound in 20th century half calf. Mémoires de Vidocq, chef de la police de sûreté jusqu'en 1827, aujourd'hui propriétaire et fabricant de papiers à Saint-Mandé, 1828-29. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. The BNF indicates that Vidocq was responsible for the first vol. only. Much to Vidocq?s annoyance, Louis L'Héritier was engaged to ghost write the second and third volumes, with Vidocq in an advisory role. This relationship appears to have been a frosty one as Vidocq was not involved at all in the writing of the fourth volume. Volumes III and IV have additional series titlepages showing them to be numbers 27 and 28 in the ?Autobiography? series. The series was started by Hunt & Clarke, taken over by Whittaker, Treacher & Arnot. Bookseller Inventory # 39689

Item Description: I. J. Chidley, 123, Aldersgate Street n.d. [1840s]., London, 1840. 12mo, pp. [i-iii] iv-vi [i] ii-xii [1] 2-562, engraved title leaf and eight inserted plates with illustrations by Thomas Onwhyn, original pictorial red cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, all edges untrimmed, yellow coated endpapers. First complete one-volume edition? No holdings for this edition can be found in any of the libraries of COPAC, leaving some uncertainty about its exact bibliographic status. What is known and what seems likely are as follows: the first English translation of this work was issued in four volumes by Hunt and Clarke in 1828-1829. (Oxford also records another edition in 4 volumes in 1829 from Whittaker, Treacher and Arnet.) A one-volume edition appeared in 1859 in the Bohn Library and also from T. B. Peterson in the U.S., the latter running to 562 pages, the same page count as the present edition and, one may reasonably suspect, of the Bohn Library edition as well. That would place this Chidley edition somewhere between 1829 and 1859 (confirmed by a gift inscription dated July 1847 on the front free endpaper). Chidley brought out an earlier undated edition (circa 1840) titled THE LIFE AND EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF VIDOCQ. This edition consisted of only 206 pages and, therefore, may have been the first of a projected multi-volume edition. What seems likely is that this is the first complete one-volume edition of VIDOCQ -- an important probable influence on Poe's creation of Dupin. See Queen's Quorum, pp. 8-9. Queen, The Detective Short Story, pp. 107-08. July 1847 gift inscription on the front free endpaper. Some foxing and age-darkening to plates, several hairline cracks along outer joints, but a very good copy with clean binding and bright spine stamping. A very uncommon edition of this book. (#149456). Bookseller Inventory # 149456

Item Description: Printed for Hunt and Clarke (Vols. I & II); Whittaker, Treacher, and Arnot (Vols. III & IV), London, 1829. First edition in English. First edition in English. Frontispiece portrait. Bound without half titles. xxii, 237, [1]; xi, [i]; 266; xii, 251, [i]; 275, [1] pp. 4 vols. 12mo. Vidocq wrote only the first volume in the French original; a ghost writer was brought in for the rest of the work. The translation is variously attributed to George Borrow or H.T.R. (William Maginn), and its influence cannot be underestimated. "Numerous influences on detective story writers to come especially on Poe" (Queen's Quorum). Attractive copy of a landmark work. Queen's Quorum p. 9 Full brown morocco extra, t.e.g. Fine Frontispiece portrait. Bound without half titles. xxii, 237, [1]; xi, [i]; 266; xii, 251, [i]; 275, [1] pp. 4 vols. 12mo.
