Wuthering Heights by Ellis Bell & Agnes Grey by Acton Bell 1858 Smith Elder New Edition with memoir by Currer Bell

£450.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Publisher: Smith, Elder and Co, Cornhill, London, 1858, New Edition with preface and memoir of both authors by Currer Bell (Charlotte Bronte). Hardback, half-leather binding, marbled endpapers and page block edges, 446 pages plus 4 pages of publishers lists of uniform edition of works by Currer, Acton and Ellis Bell (ie the Bronte sisters). Cover, half leather with dark brown cloth boards and tan leather spine and corners with raised bands and gilt decorations and title to spine, is in fair condition commensurate with age with rubbing to corners, spine edges and spine extremities. Spine is partially detached at front hinge and top 1 inch of spine cover is torn and partly folded back (although there is not significant loss). Internally the book is largely in decent condition for its age with generally firm binding and clean (albeit lightly tanned) pages and clean rear marbled endpapers. However the front marbled free endpaper is detached and page 1 of the text is held in place with paper tape and binding slightly weakened and exposed at that point. Very old inscription on pre-title page. One or two grubby marks here and there and a few foxing marks. Book has very slight curve which could probably be corrected by, for example, placing under a heavy book. This is a rare early (1858) edition of these great works of English literature from the time before publishers were able to drop the disguise of using male pen-names of the Bronte sisters and reveal their true identities. The preface and memoir of her sisters was first written in 1850 by Charlotte Bronte (Currer Bell) and this particular edition was published only three years after Charlotte herself sadly died in childbirth.
