Description:
Brooklyn: Ezekial Cooper & John Wilson, for the Methodist Connection in the United States. Robinson & Little, Printers, 1806. First edition thus. Very good plus.. Scarce American edition of the bookseller's Confessions, with one of the earliest Brooklyn imprints. Lackington's CONFESSIONS (first published in London in 1804) follow and disclaim his earlier MEMOIRS, in which he first detailed his "strange rise from one of the lowest stations in life, to the possession of probably the greatest book-store in the known world," and fervently insulted Christianity in general and Methodism in particular along the way. Following his happy but temporary time as a Deist, the erstwhile bookseller was reclaimed once more for the Methodist side, and wrote these Letters to advertise and explain the fact of his conversion. Notable in Lackington's redemption drama is his reliance on books and reading to draw him back from the precipice: just as a novel-reading wife and Voltaire pushed him to deny the Gospels, only… Read More

Description:
Stockholm: Albert Bonniers Förlag, 1907. Near fine.. Inscribed first edition of the best known book by the first woman and first Swedish person to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, beating out fellow nominees Joseph Conrad, Thomas Hardy, and Mark Twain. Selma Lagerlöf was a vocal suffragette, a scholar who defied her father's efforts to stifle her education, and a writer who bucked the fashionable realism of her early 20th-century literary peers. In her lifetime, Lagerlöf accepted her public image as a "naïve, kind spinster who told simple stories from her homeland"; she stipulated her love letters with other women not be published for 50 years after her death. She was selected for the 1909 Nobel Prize "in appreciation of the lofty idealism, vivid imagination and spiritual perception that characterize her writings," all of which are on display in this book (NobelPrize.org). This title is Lagerlöf's most famous work, so beloved that its main character and author once adorned Swedish currency.… Read More

Description:
London: John Murray, 1931. First edition (stated). Near fine.. Inscribed first printing of this early, authorized biography of Doyle, written by an acquaintance sympathetic to his later Spiritualist convictions and presented "with reverent gratitude" to famed trance medium Louisa Meurig Morris. Lamond, the only major Doyle biographer to share his Spiritualist beliefs, makes special mention of the "remarkable discourses being delivered by Mrs. Meurig Morris at the Fortune Theatre, London" in his later chapters on life after death. One of these discourses is preserved in the first film recording of a séance ever made, a 1931 British Movietone News production featuring Morris's spirit control, "Power," and spotlighting audience members Jean and Denis Conan Doyle, hopeful communicants with ACD some six months after his departure from the physical realm. Lady Conan Doyle was also a witness in a 1932 libel suit brought by Morris against the Daily Mail, which dared to claim the medium had been "found… Read More

Charming make-your-own-scene book featuring humanized bugs and frogs and a host of their fairy and gnome friends, issued as loose figures to be fit into the color plates. The fashionable and fun-loving humanized insects of this title recall the art of Else Wenz-Viëtor, "the most famous German illustrator of picture books for children during the 1920s and 1930s" (Zipes). Her work experienced a bit of a resurgence in the 1950s, with several of her books being reissued. Each page of text here faces a fabulous full-page color illustration with slots to place a variety of paper doll-like cutouts of animals and fantasy figures, encouraging the reader to make their own creative illustration. A lovely example of an interactive book. 9.5'' x 12.25''. Original color pictorial boards, cloth-backed. Illustrated in color and black-and-white throughout.

Description:
Philadelphia: Macrae Smith, 1920. Very good plus.. Early 20th century US edition of this classic book of fairy tales with a different binding style than the first edition, still elaborately designed for a gift audience. Andrew Lang is considered the fairytale taste-maker of late 19th and early 20th century British nurseries, with his color fairy book series leading the charge. Stories in this volume include "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Rapunzel," "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," and "The Story of Sigurd" (from Morris's translation of the Volsunga Saga). Typical for Lang's edited collections, the work to adapt and translate these stories has primarily been accomplished by others with whom he worked (often women), duly credited in the preface, though not the title page. This edition was issued in the Washington Square Classics series, a US marketing effort at reissuing well-known titles in beautiful gift editions in the 1910s and 1920s. 7.5'' x 5.5''.
