Item Description: Benn, 1927. First edition, Edition de Luxe. Number 4 of only 50 copies, signed by Edmund Dulac. Publisher's creamy vellum with leather title label. Top edge gilt. A very good copy indeed, vellum a little bowed with a couple of minor marks. Page edges slightly browned and some foxing to the preliminaries and occasionally to a plate mount. Twelve colour plates and numerous black and white drawings in the text. The tiny print run makes this one of the rarest of all the illustrated gift books. The illustrations for this book mark a new departure in Dulac's work. He enters a phase of greens and blues, views the scenes from above and afar. Hughey says, "The detailing and design of the pictures present some of Dulac's most careful and superb painting." In fact, the watercolours he produced for this book were his own favourites.

Item Description: London Cassell & Company, 1883. The First Edition of Treasure Island STEVENSON, Robert Louis. Treasure Island. London: Cassell & Company, 1883. First edition, with early issue points: "Dead Man’s Chest" is not capitalized on pp. 2 and 7; with "rain" for "vain" in the last line of p. 40; the "a" is not present in line 6 of p. 63; the "8" is present in the pagination on p. 83; the "7" is bolder and larger than the other figures in the pagination on p. 127; the period is lacking following "opportunity" in line 20 of p. 178; with "worse" for "worst" in line 3 of p. 197; and Treasure Island is listed as having 304 pages on p. 2 of the publisher’s advertisements. Octavo (7 1/2 x 4 7/8 inches; 191 x 124 mm). viii, 292,[8 pp. advertisements, "dated 5R-12.83."] pp. Frontispiece map of Treasure Island, printed in four colors and has the original tissue guard. Original crimson diagonal fine-ribbed cloth with covers ruled in blind and spine lettered in gilt. Original black coated endpapers. Corners a bit bumped and binding just slightly skewed. Spine a bit darkened and gilt lightly rubbed. Occasional minor foxing to first three leaves, and other bits of spotting throughout, mainly to page 115. End papers with a few spots. Previous owner's small ink signature on front free endpaper. Overall a very good copy. Housed in a full morocco clamshell case. "Treasure Island established itself as a classic, drawing plaudits from the widest range of literary sensibilities. In 1890 W.B. Yeats wrote to tell [Stevenson] that the book was the only one in which his seafaring grandfather had ever taken any pleasure and that he reread it on his deathbed with infinite satisfaction. Jack London, in so many ways RLS’s true spiritual heir, declared: ‘His Treasure Island will be a classic to go down with Robinson Crusoe, Through the Looking Glass and The Jungle Books’’’ (Frank McLynn, Robert Louis Stevenson, p. 203). Beinecke 240-241. Gumuchian 5443. Morgan Library, Early Children’s Books and Their Illustration, 206. Osborne Collection II, p. 1030. Prideaux 11. Princeton 22. HBS 66109. $7,500.
