This wonderful book is Quarto in size and would make a great coffee-table book. The book is in fine condition with extremely clean boards and spine.

This is a true First edition. The dustjacket is very near fine with a tiny bit of shelfwear to the top of the spine panel which will be invisible once I put this volume into an archival dustjacket protector. Who but Life Magazine could bring us this remarkable... View more info

After the Publication of 'Pendennis' in December of 1850, Thackeray announced (going against the stated opinions of several friends), that he would try his hand at lecturing. Thackeray himself was somewhat embarrassed by this method of making money and would probably have not done so if he had not been concerned with leaving his daughters well-provided (He had just been through a serious illness). Nevertheless, this decision led to a series of brilliant essays on The English Humourists of the Eighteenth century, The writers of this period had always been Thackeray's favorite reading.

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 000568

Condition: Near Fine


Several years before his death, Dylan Thomas began to write a novel that would not be strictly autobiograophical, but would bear a relation to the two parts of his experience. Those would be his own actions, and the actions of his dramatised self. Only the opening of this novel ever got written, and this is its first publication in book form. It is a unique fragment, fantastic in comedy, and rich with the poet's personality. Regarding the novel Thomas said "My novel blazes on. It's a mixture of Oliver Twist, Little Dorrit, Kafka, Beachcomber, and good old 3-adjectives-a-penny, belly churni... View more info
