Hard Times

by Charles Dickens

  • Used
  • very good
  • first
London: Bradbury and Evans, 1854. First. Very Good. This is the first edition in book form of Hard Times, which had been serialized in 1854 in Household Words Hard Times ‐ For These Times (commonly known as Hard Times) is Dickens' tenth novel The book surveys English society and satirizes the social and economic conditions of the era
The book is unusual in several ways It is by far the shortest of Dickens′ novels, barely a quarter of the length of those written immediately before and after it Also, unlike all but one of his other novels (Great Expectations), Hard Times has neither a preface nor illustrations Moreover, it is his only novel not to have scenes set in London Instead the story is set in the fictitious Victorian industrial Coketown, a generic Northern English mill‐town, in some ways similar to Manchester, though smaller Coketown may be partially based on 19th‐century Preston
One of Dickens′s reasons for writing Hard Times was that sales of his weekly periodical, Household Words, were low, and it was hoped the novel′s publication in installments would boost circulation ‐ as indeed proved to be the case

Bound in fancy three‐quarter crimson leather with deep red marbled paper for endpapers and over the balance of the boards The materials used for the bindings date the binding work to around 1890 and a bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown, belonging to Julius Franke (1868‐1936) Franke was a prominent New York City architect whose work included designing the Wurlitzer Building, and it seems likely that he commissioned the binding
The book has minor age/wear indications, including shelfwear and rubbing, with minor cracking along the gutter The binding and text block are sound Text is clear and crisp though mild age toning There is a small number stamp and writing ink to the title page An original bookseller′s embossed stamp appears on a preliminary page; ″Ja Sellick / Plymouth″ There are no plates, as issued 352 pp.

Description:
1822 Don Quixote Cervantes Chivalry Motteux English Lockhart Notes SCOTTISH 5v

"Small wonder if the world received Don Quixote with delight! There was nothing like unto it before: there has been nothing to eclipse it since". – Rius, D. Leopoldo.
A rare, 19th-century English translation of Cervantes' masterpiece – "Don Quixote". This edition, translated by Peter Anthony Motteux, is considered a desirable English translation, which was very popular after its release in 1700. However, this edition was criticized and condemned by later printers for:
· Adopting a frivolous style, rather than a more serious and ironic tone
· Turning Don Quixote and Sancho Panza into buffoons
· Casting the work in a "Franco-Cockney" rather than Spanish culture
This 1822 edition was published in Edinburgh, printed in five volumes, and includes a 'life of Cervantes' by J.G. Lockhart – the first edition to feature Lockhart's essay.

1845 1ed Eugene Sue Mysteries of Paris anti-Catholic English Novel Literature 3v

'The Mysteries of Paris' is a classic French novel by Eugene Sue, published in the mid-19th-century. In many ways, 'Mysteries of Paris' was a landmark work as well as being controversial. Sue was one of the first French authors to fuse characters from different social classes making this work popular amongst all readers, not just upper or lower classes.

However, this work, which follows the mysterious life of a German Duke, is one of the most famous 'anti-Catholic' novels. Along with 'The Wandering Jew', this book depicted various aspects of underclass society and helped establish the 'city mysteries' literary genre. This 1845 English first edition features nearly 700 illustrations throughout!

Description:
v+321 pages. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's black cloth with gilt lettering to cover and spine. First British edition. St. Ives: Being The Adventures of a French Prisoner in England (1897) is an unfinished novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was completed in 1898 by Arthur Quiller-Couch. Unable to write, Stevenson dictated thirty chapters of the novel to his stepdaughter as a diversion from his debilitating illness. He alternated dictating St. Ives and The Weir of Hermiston but gradually lost interest in the former. The plot concerns the adventures of the dashing Capitaine Jacques St. Ives, a Napoleonic soldier, after his capture by the British. Condition: Corners bumped and rubbed, shelf wear, hinges and spine heal moderately rubbed, previous owner's name on front end paper else a very good copy.
