About this Item: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1848. Wraps. First American Edition. Two octavo (5-1/4" x 7-11/16") volumes in the original printed wrappers. First published in England in December 1847, this American edition was published in April 1848 simultaneously in wrappers (two volumes at 25 cents each) and in cloth (one volume at 75 cents), with copies in cloth much more common than those in wrappers. It was this American edition which led to the "unmasking" of the Brontes. The author is wrongly identified on the covers and the title page as being that of "JANE EYRE," which was also first published in 1847 but was of course by Emily's sister, Charlotte. Harper & Brothers, acting on the assumption of Thomas Newby, the Bronte's British publisher, that the sisters (writing under the pseudonyms of Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell) were, in fact, one person, saw nothing untoward in attributing WUTHERING HEIGHTS to the "author of JANE EYRE." It was to clear up this misunderstanding that the Brontes made their dramatic 1848 visit to their British publishers to reveal their true identity. The various film adaptations of the novel include the classic 1939 version directed by William Wyler and starring Laurence Olivier as Heathcliff and Merle Oberon as Cathy. It was voted best film of the year by the New York Film Critics in preference to the Oscar-garlanded GONE WITH THE WIND. The English Edition of the previous year will set you back an easy 6 figures. Spine and rear cover of the first part in expert facsimile. The second part with expert repairs to the spine and rear cover. Some soiling and foxing to covers and contents. Generally Very Good and exceptionally scarce in the wrappers. Seller Inventory # 016971

About this Item: 1848. First Edition. "BRONTE, Emily. Wuthering Heights. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1848. 12mo (5 by 7-1/2 inches), early half sheep rebacked with original spine laid down, blue boards. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $15,000.Extraordinarily important and rare first American edition (published less than five months after the virtually unobtainable London first edition) of Emily Brontë's passionate masterpiece."Like Poems, Wuthering Heights was presented to an uncomprehending public without preface, introduction or explanation and it was left to Charlotte, ever her sister's apologist, to insist that it was simply a tale of 'the wild moors of the north of England' There was a constant litany of complaint about the brutality and violence of some of the scenes [particularly involving Heathcliffe] and about the use of expletives, which, contrary to custom, Emily had written out in full rather than indicated by a dash An American reviewer wrote in the Literary World: 'Fascinated by strange magic we are made subject to the immense power of the book we are spell-bound, we cannot choose but read'" (Barker, 502, 539-40). G.W. Peck wrote of it that "if the rank of a work of fiction is to depend solely on its naked imaginative power, then this is one of the greatest novels in the language." One year after her only novel's publication, Emily Bronte was dead of consumption. "Wuthering Heights stands alone as a monument of intensity owing nothing to tradition, nothing to the achievement of earlier writers. It was a thing apart, passionate, unforgettable, haunting in its grimness Bronte has a sure and certain place for all time" (Britannica). Although the title page of the 1848 Wuthering Heights states, "By The Author of 'Jane Eyre,'" it was, of course, Emily's older sister, Charlotte, who authored Jane Eyre. Not until the famous "Biographical Notice of Ellis and Acton Bell, by Charlotte Bronte," in 1850 did Charlotte clearly address the matter of the pseudonyms and the true authorship of the works: "It has been thought that all the works published under the names of Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell were, in reality, the production of one person [O]n [this] occasion I am advised distinctly to state how the case really stands." The first London edition, was published December 4, 1847; this edition was published April 21, 1848, simultaneously as two parts in wrappers and as a single, clothbound volume. Smith, 74-75. Evidence of front free endpaper (blank) having been removed. Light foxing to text, with a few dozen leaves having been expertly cleaned. Some light rubbing to early sheep and boards. A very good copy in early sheep and boards.". Seller Inventory # 107476

About this Item: New York: Harper & Brothers, Publishers, 1848, 1848. Octavo (185 x 125 mm). Recently rebound in black half calf, original marbled paper boards, titles to red morocco label to spine, gilt raised bands. Contemporary ownership inscription to third front and the rear binder's blanks. Slight worm damage to edge of front free endpaper, small loss to corners on 5 leaves, an excellent copy. First US edition, second overall, published in April 1848, at 75 cents, with the publisher's misattribution on the title page of this book to Charlotte Brontë. The second English edition was not published until December 1850. The first edition, with Anne Brontë's Agnes Grey, was rushed out by Thomas Cautley Newby in December 1847, in the wake of the unexpected success of Jane Eyre, published by Newby's rivals, Smith Elder. Newby then embarked on an advertising campaign to confuse the identity of the three Bell "brothers", suggesting that all the novels were the work of one person: hence the mistaken attribution on the title page here.

About this Item: 1848. [two volumes, original wrappers] A Novel. By the Author of "Jane Eyre" [sic]. [In Two Volumes.] New York: Harper & Brothers, 1848. Original light brown printed wrappers. First American Edition of one of the greatest novels of the Nineteenth Century. Emily Brontë's ("Ellis Bell's") WUTHERING HEIGHTS was published in England in December 1847 together with her sister Anne's ("Acton Bell's") AGNES GREY. Although it was their sister Charlotte ("Currer Bell") who was the driving force behind all three sisters' simultaneous effort to publish, it was Charlotte's novel, titled THE PROFESSOR, that was rejected -- but with praise, so that she was encouraged to submit another effort that she would call JANE EYRE (which would wind up getting published a few months earlier, and by a larger publisher, than her two sisters' books).~This first American edition was published in April 1848 simultaneously in wrappers (two volumes at 25 cents each) and in cloth (one volume at 75 cents) -- "both bindings contain the original printed sheets, and copies in either binding constitute the first American edition" [Smith]. It is interesting to note that the American edition indicates that WUTHERING HEIGHTS is "by the author of JANE EYRE" -- which of course it is not (the English edition had instead used Emily's pseudonym, Ellis Bell). Whether Harper truly thought both novels were by the same writer (or were confused by the similar pseudonyms), or whether Harper sought to stimulate the sales of WUTHERING HEIGHTS by intentionally misrepresenting the author, is an intriguing question.~As Smith points out (Note 2), the two-parts issue is unusual in that Part I ends right in the middle of a sentence, and Part II takes up with the rest of that sentence, without so much as a separate title page. (Part II does, however, have its own wrapper, so identified on front wrapper and on spine.)~In this set, the rear wrapper of each volume is as described by Smith (headed "Recent Works of Fiction by Popular Authors" and "Choice Library of Modern Romance" respectively); Smith also cites a secondary rear wrapper for Part II, and we have encountered a third version.~Condition is very good, considering the fragility of these wrappered volumes. Both front wrappers have minor edge-wear, and bear the same early inscription in the upper margin, "Mrs. M. Hildreth with the respects of Miss Hall." The rear wrapper of Part I has an upper corner chipped away (affecting half of the last word in its heading; the rear wrapper of Part II is quite complete, with minimal wear. Both spines are a bit askew (as with the only other set we have had), and each lacks about one inch of wrapper at an end (not affecting print though). Inside, there is a damp-stain on the first few leaves of Part I, and the initial blank leaf in Part II is damaged; however, the textual leaves are remarkably free of wear, soil or foxing. This is only the second time we have EVER had both volumes in original wrappers, in our 35+ years in business (we also once had a Part II only) -- truly a rare edition. Now that the English first edition in original binding has surpassed $100,000 in value, this two-volume American edition in wrappers is a highly-desirable alternative at a fraction of the cost. Smith pp 70-74. Seller Inventory # 13856

About this Item: Published by Smith Elder & Co., 65, Cornhill, London. Second Edition , 1851. 2 works in one volume. 1850., 1850. Second edition hard back binding in publisher's original chocolate cloth covers which have been rebacked whilst preserving the original cloth, gilt title and author lettering to the spine, blind tooling to the front and rear covers, pale lemon yellow end leaves, untrimmed page edges. 8vo. 7½'' x 5¼''. With the contemporary binder's ticket of Westley of London adhered to the rear paste-down. Complete with the review leaf before first half-title. This edition was published in December 1850 but the title date of 'a large proportion' of copies was altered to 1851 to render them more suitable for the forthcoming year (see Wise, p. 104). This is evidently a slightly later issue, in Westley's chocolate cloth rather than the 'claret' given by Wise, and with the 16 page publisher's catalogue bound in at the rear dated December 1855. ''This new edition of 'Wuthering Heights and Agnes Grey' is a book of very considerable literary importance. Not only does it contain (pp. vii-xvi) Charlotte's 'Biographical Notice' of her two sisters, together with (pp. xvii-xxiv) a Preface to 'Wuthering Heights'; it also includes a series of poems by both Emily and Anne which appeared in its pages for the first time'' (Wise, p.104). The whole now preserved in custom-made blue Solander case with rounded spine, gilt title lettering and cross bands. Wuthering Heights is Emily Brontë's first and only published novel, written between October 1845 and June 1846, and published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell. Emily died the following year, aged 30, the decision to publish it came after the success of her sister Charlotte's novel, Jane Eyre.

About this Item: Harper & Brothers, 1848. Hardcover. Condition: Good. A true collectors piece. First american edition of this iconic novel. Emily Bronte died the following year after its release and Charlotte Bronte went on to make some editing changes to further editions. There is only a handful of this edition available and this one is in good shape still. The wrong author is credited as "By the author of Jane Eyre" and it wasn't until later that the real author was credited as opposed to her sister. This copy shows some sign of wear from aging. Spine has 1 inch tear at the bottom with a small hole near the top. The gold gilt design on the spine is still evident with minor fading. Fading to the covers with design still evident. Binding is still good and tight. End papers show spotting from aging and moisture damage. Some slight foxing to the last 100 pages. Still a great tight copy in its original cloth.

About this Item: The Limited Editions Club, New York, 1993. Leather. Condition: Fine. Balthus (illustrator). Limited Edition. Number 177 of 300, folio size, 208 pp., signed by Balthus. First edition with these illustrations, limited, number 177 of 300. "What could they have in common--Count Balthazar Klossowski de Rola and Mistress Emily Bronte--the Paris-born modern artist who has filled scores of canvases with paintings of pubescent female nudes, and the mid-nineteenth-century British spinster who seems never to have left the Yorkshire moors. But that was precisely the incredible connection. For in his youth the Count--better known as Balthus--had visited and been enchanted by those Yorkshire moors. And haunted by that wild landscape, at the age of 25 he made a series of drawings based on Emily Bronte's gripping novel. The drawings, whose incisive linear quality has been described by Jean Leymarie, Balthus' biographer and critic, as 'lit up with something of the book's flame and storm-flashes, have a place apart in his work and have provided the inspiration for several of his paintings'. Published in 1847, Wuthering Heights was the only novel written by Emily Bronte, who lived from 1818 to 1848. The adjective wuthering, in Yorkshire dialect, refers to the turbulent weather, and of course to the turbulent atmosphere that permeates the book." (N.B., from Newsletter.) ***DESCRIPTION: Original binding by John von Isakovics at Jovonis Studio, gray-green goatskin with title stamped in dark-brown to upper board, plain white endpapers, 15 full-page inlaid lithographs on Japanese paper, Monotype Dante type, specially made off-white mould-made Arches paper, folio 12-3/4" x 16-1/2", pagination: [4 blank], [viii], 208, [2 blank], [1 colophon], [4 blank] pp., limited edition, number 177 of 300, signed by Balthus, with The Limited Editions Club newsletter laid in. Housed in a beige cloth clamshell case lined in velvet and title onlay to backstrip. ***CONDITION: There could be no better way to read Wuthering Heights than this, the type, binding, and illustrations are all chosen with loving care, coming together in simple, balanced harmony. This copy is like new, with bright pages, uncontrived and unscathed binding, a must have for any collector of either the Brontes or Balthus; very fine. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply due to size and weight; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.

About this Item: 1993. BALTHUS. Wuthering Heights. By Emily Bronte. Illustrated with fifteen lithographs after drawings by Balthus (Balthazar Klossowski de Rola). Folio, bound in goatskin leather dyed grey-green to evoke the Yorkshire moors, and housed in a cloth slipcase with leather spine label (slight waterstain on the front of the box). New York: Limited Editions Club, 1993. The chef d'oeuvre of the artist as book-illustrator. Balthus began his career as an artist when Rilke arranged to have his book Mitsou published, and it was not till sixty years later, that he was involved in another book. He had actually made the drawings when he was twenty-five, but apart from having some of them reproduced in the magazine Minotaure, nothing was done with them. One of only 300 copies signed by Balthus. As new. Seller Inventory # 128274

About this Item: Smith Elder, UK, 1851. Decorative Cloth. Condition: Good++. No Jacket. Second Edition. 2nd Edition 1851. It was published three years after the first edition in December 1850 by Smith, Elder and Company. The text has been updated and a new preface added by her sister Charlotte Bronte. Also included for the first time is the poems of the Bronte sisters. 'This new edition of 'Wuthering Heights and Agnes Grey' is a book of very considerable literary importance. Not only does it contain (pp. vii-xvi) Charlotte's 'Biographical Notice' of her two sisters, together with (pp. xvii-xxiv) a Preface to 'Wuthering Heights'; it also includes a series of poems by both Emily and Anne which appeared in its pages for the first time' (Wise, p.104). The second edition has two states namely with the date 1850 and the date 1851 to the title page. Very few copies exist with the date 1850 and most appear with the date 1851. This book is dated 1851 and has the claret cloth boards to the spine and front board. The rear board has been added at a later date by re-casing the spine and two boards together. I suspect the rear board came away many years ago and was lost from the book and it was repaired using a similar coloured board from another book. Not ideal but finding the second edition in most of the original cloth is a rare find. The book is good++ with quite bright boards. Hinges and spine tips quite rubbed. Small loss to spine tips. Structurally the book works well. New endpapers with large bookplate to the front. Inscription to the inner page and inner title page page Contents quite good with light foxing and age toning to the pages. First few pages of the biographical notice by Charlotte Bronte are missing. More images can be taken upon request. Ref 10016 Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 013838

About this Item: Downey and Company 1898-99, London, 1898. Octavo, 12 volumes. Finely bound by Macdonald in three quarters morocco. Gilt titles and tooling to the spine, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, top edge gilt. Edited by Temple Scott. With seven engraved plates. In near fine condition. An attractive set. The Brontes were a nineteenth-century literary family associated with the village of Thornton in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. The sisters, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne are well known as poets and novelists. Like many contemporary female writers, they originally published their poems and novels under male pseudonyms: Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte's Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily's Wuthering Heights, Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.
