Description:
New York: Lewis M. Thompson, 1920. First edition thus. Near fine.. Limited critical edition of this pseudonymous 1842 response to Charles Dickens, here attributed to Poe by Dickens collector Joseph Jackson but later reclassified as the work of poet Nathaniel Wheeler Coffin. In 1842, Charles Dickens voyaged to the United States, in part to make money, and in part to convince US publishers to stop pirating his books (and hence to make more money). After a relatively unsuccessful visit, Dickens published AMERICAN NOTES later that year, which said Americans did not take well. Jackson has reprinted here one anonymous response to AMERICAN NOTES in a lavish format on the (incorrect) judgment that it was written by Poe. A beautiful book, a passionate argument, an unfortunate mistake. 8.5'' x 5.5''. Contemporary three-quarter white morocco with red cloth. Spine stamped in gilt. Marbled endpapers. "Issue for disposal limited to one hundred copies." 182 pages. Illustrated with two plates: a frontispiece… Read More

Description:
(London): Hodder & Stoughton, 1913. Very good plus.. Lavish signed limited edition of this fairy-tale collection, illustrated with an Art Deco take on 18th-century French styles.

Published when he was only 27, it was the Danish-born illustrator's first commission from an English publisher, leading to one of his most famous books the next year: EAST OF THE SUN, WEST OF THE MOON. A highlight of the Golden Age gift books, with the power to turn the heads of anyone interested in the era of Marie Antoinette. Folio. 12.5'' x 10.5''.

Illustrated by Nielsen with 26 magnificent color plates with pictorial lettered tissue guards and decorative borders. 164 pages. Housed in custom tan cloth… Read More
