Description :

Tauchnitz edition. No. 3668. Inscribed presentation copy by the author. 12mo., marbled boards half-backed in green morroco; spine in gilt. Sun and wear to spine with edges lightly rubbed. This is the book James Barry praised as the best book written about lost youth. His introduction to the London edition in efusive. Christian Bernhard Tauchnitz (1816-1895) was only twenty-five years old when he began to publish - in Leipzig, Germany - the series of literary works in English known as the 'Collection of British and American Authors'. He died in 1895, but his enterprise continued to flourish until 1943, by which time almost 5,800 titles by eight hundred authors had been included. In the early 1840s, before Britain's first international copyright agreement with Prussia, he was remarkable for offering to pay for the exclusive right to reprint English books for sale on the continent of Europe; over the years inclusion in the series was increasingly prized as a mark of success, and authors such as Charles Dickens (1812-1870) and Wilkie Collins (1824-1889) became his close friends. Many Tauchnitz editions are of potential textual significance, having been set from proofs, advance sheets, or corrected editions, or variously adapted to suit the series format. This edition published simultaneously with the Grant Richards (first edition) in London. The complete Tauchnitz editions were recently acquired bythe British Museum. Rare and a very good copy. (Laid into the front of the book is a 1912 review from the New York Times of Merrick's works). N° de réf. du libraire

Description du livre [London. ca. 1902-3]., 1902. 227 numbered leaves, plus lettered inserts. Quarto. Closely written in black ink on lightly ruled paper, with frequent revisions and corrections. Evidently used as the setting manuscript, with occasional ink thumb prints and smudges, but in very good order, contained in a full morocco clamshell case (joint broken). The substantial working manuscript for Merrick's best known novel, published by Grant Richards in 1903, and reissued in 1918 with an introductory essay by J.M. Barrie, who described the novel as "the best sentimental journey written in this country since the publication of the other one." Merrick (born Leonard Miller, 1864-1939) is likely little read these days, except for this novel, but when his Collected Works were published in 1918-1919, Barrie, Wells, Locke, Pinero, Howells, Hewlett, among others, contributed prefatory essays, and CONRAD IN SEARCH OF HIS YOUTH figured on several "highspot" lists of its era.
