Description:
Savage, MD: Barnes and Nobel Books, 1991. First. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. From the publisher: "These essays comprise the first extensive reappraisal of Charles Lever for over 50 years. Once regarded as the equal of Dickens, Trollope and Thackeray, Lever's public turned their backs on him when he changed style and genre after making his name with comic military tales. He never captured his early popularity, but his later novels in fact manifest a much more serious and crafted approach to fiction and richly deserve revival. Lever's own turbulent and often unhappy life of social and cultural exile in Europe provides the hidden theme of many of his better novels. Continental and Irish settings and preoccupations are juxtaposed, making his contribution to the Anglo-Irish novel an unusual and challenging one. Lever is a shrewd observer of characteróparticularly of female character; few of his better-remembered contemporaries write with more insight about women; old, young, rich, poor; loving,… Read More

Boston: The Atlantic Monthly Press, 1923. First. Hardcover. Near fine/Good. Dr. Johnson: A Play" is a dramatic portrayal of the life and times of Samuel Johnson, the famous 18th-century English writer, lexicographer, and literary critic. The play follows Johnson's journey from his humble beginnings in Lichfield, through his struggles with poverty, depression, and illness, to his eventual rise to fame as a celebrated author and intellectual. Along the way, the play explores Johnson's relationships with his friends, family, and colleagues, including his contentious friendship with the writer and actor David Garrick, his patronage of the struggling poet Oliver Goldsmith, and his complex relationship with his wife, Tetty. The play also delves into Johnson's intellectual and philosophical beliefs, including his views on religion, morality, and the nature of human existence.  Alfred Edward Newton (1864-1940) was an American industrialist better known as an author and avid book collector.

Description:
Washington, D.C.: Coumterpoint, 1995. First US edition. Fine/Fine. From the publisher: H. G. Wells, British writer, social critic, futurist, and celebrated author of The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds, witnessed the great events of two centuries and played a major role in many controversies of his turbulent age. With extraordinary foresight, he predicted such developments as the atomic bomb and space flight. He was a leading voice for society's have-nots, a staunch supporter of women's and worker's rights, a passionate champion of equality among races and classes, and one of socialism's leading proponents. In tracking the life of Wells, Michael Foot - former leader of Britain's labor party and esteemed literary biographer - traces the growth of these major social movements and Well's commitment to them. What results is the story of a remarkable man whose work influenced a remarkable time. The women he loved, and who loved him - among them four of the most independent-minded women of the era,… Read More

We are never closer to life than when we brush up against the possibility of death. I Am, I Am, I Am is Maggie O'Farrell's astonishing memoir of the near-death experiences that have punctuated and defined her life. The childhood illness that left her bedridden for a year, which she was not expected to survive. A teenage yearning to escape that nearly ended in disaster. An encounter with a disturbed man on a remote path. And, most terrifying of all, an ongoing, daily struggle to protect her daughter - for whom this book was written - from a condition that leaves her unimaginably vulnerable to life's myriad dangers. Seventeen discrete encounters with Maggie at different ages, in different locations, reveal a whole life… Read More

Marbled endpapers. Binding and contents both in fine condition, with no marks or damage. James Hain Friswell (1825 -1878) was an English essayist and novelist.

George Augustus Sala (G.A.S.), whose life was very severely commented on in this work, brought an action for defamation of character against Hodder & Stoughton, the publishers of the book, and obtained 500 pounds damages.

Description:
New York: Nims and Knight, 1885. Early Reprint. Hardcover. Very Good+. With Numerous Illustrations by English and American Artists. Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron Tennyson FRS (1809 - 1892) was one of the most prominent of all English poets. He was the Poet Laureate during much of Queen Victoria's reign. In 1829, Tennyson was awarded the Chancellor's Gold Medal at Cambridge for one of his first pieces, "Timbuktu". He published his first solo collection of poems, Poems, Chiefly Lyrical, in 1830. "Claribel" and "Mariana", which remain some of Tennyson's most celebrated poems, were included in this volume. Although described by some critics as overly sentimental, his verse soon proved popular and brought Tennyson to the attention of well-known writers of the day, including Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Tennyson's early poetry, with its medievalism and powerful visual imagery, was a major influence on the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. This copy is particularly well preserved for its age.   It is in brown cloth… Read More

Description:
New York: Everyman's Library, Alfred A. Knopf, 2003. First Everyman's Library edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. From the publisher: "Thirty years' worth of Evelyn Waugh's inimitable travel writings have been gathered together for the first time in one volume. Waugh's accounts of his travels-spanning the years from 1929 to 1958-describe journeys through the West Indies, Mexico, South America, the Holy Land, and Africa. And just as his travels informed his fiction, his novelist's sensibility is apparent in each of these pieces. Waugh pioneered the genre of modern travel writing in which the comic predicament of the traveler is as central as the world he encounters. He wrote with as sharp an eye for folly as for foliage, and a delight in the absurd, not least where his own comfort and dignity are concerned. From his fresh take on the well-traveled and hence already "fully labeled" Mediterranean region in Labels, to a close-up view of Haile Selassie's coronation in Remote People, from a comically… Read More
