Description du livre Theclassics.Us, United States, 2013. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: . CHAPTER XVII BADGERING THE BILLICKIN The term for which Miss Twinkleton and Rosa had been installed as lodgers in the house of Mrs. Billickin, through the mistaken kindness of Mr. Grewgious, was rapidly drawing to a close, without the Angular man having been made aware that other than the most cerulean sky ever overhung the domestic firmament in that portion of Southhampton Street, Bloomsbury Square. It is always graceful, when the assiduous eagerness of a friend, urging us to a cross-cut by way of abridging long and wearisome distance, has plunged us into a thorn thicket, to the laceration of flesh and raiment, or into a slough, to the discomfort of the one and defilement of the other, --to avoid showing the well-intentioned but mistaken adviser what have been the fruits of his council; and there is a certain wisdom in doing so, unless one is quite prepared to accept a secondary misery in the shape of too many humble apologies, regrets and self-upbraidings. Mr. Grewgious, as both the ladies knew, would have overwhelmed himself with reproaches for having been the means of leading them into any discomfort, the moment he became aware of the fact, --and the more surely so, because the lodging-house keeper chanced to be a distant relation of his own, in whose favor he might be ungenerously suspected to have strained a point at the expense of others. So nothing had been said to him on the subject of the armed neutrality relations--not even after the open rupture already recorded, between the two contending powers, who might be said to have then withdrawn within their own lines of fortification, after a series of light actions causing great discomfort to the neutral power really owning the territory over which they skirmished.

Description du livre T. B. Peterson & Brothers; 306 Chestnut Street. (1, 1871. Hardcover. État : Fair. B004WGU38M 1871 T. B. Peterson & Brothers (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), 5 1/2 x 7 3/8 inches tall hardbound, no dust jacket (as issued), marbled paper-covered boards over leather spine and tips, matching marbled endpapers, illustrated with 18 full-page engravings, 408 pp. Spine slightly cocked. Covers soiled, rubbed and edgeworn, with cracking to both exterior hinges, but the binding is quite firm. Chipping to spine, especially at caps. Small nineteenth century prior owner bookplate to front pastedown. A bit of age toning to blank front and rear endpapers, and slight foxing to plates (and their versos). Otherwise, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of this scarce work. Not in OCLC, except as a reprint. ~KK~ Although anonymous, this completion of Charles Dickens' final novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, is generally attributed to journalist Henry Morford (1823-1881), who wrote a number of plays, essays and books, including several travel books (including Over-Sea, 1867; Morford's Short-Trip Guide to Europe, 1868; and its counterpart for Europeans, Morford's Short-Trip Guide to America, 1872). Though Dickens' unfinished final work was named after the character Edwin Drood, the story focuses on Drood's uncle, precentor, choirmaster and opium addict, John Jasper, who is in love with his pupil, Rosa Bud. Miss Bud, Drood's fiancee, has also caught the eye of the high-spirited and hot-tempered Neville Landless, who comes from Ceylon with his twin sister, Helena. Landless and Drood take an instant dislike to one another. Drood later disappears under mysterious circumstances. The story is set in Cloisterham, a lightly disguised Rochester, Kent, England. Supplying a conclusion to The Mystery of Edwin Drood has occupied writers from the time of Dickens's death to the present day. The first three attempts to complete the story were undertaken by Americans. The first, by Robert Henry Newell, published under the pen name Orpheus C. Kerr in 1870, was as much a parody as a continuation, transplanting the story to the United States. The work offered for sale here, John Jasper's Secret, was reportedly written by Morford during his travels to Rochester with his wife and was first published serially during his stay in England. In this ending, Edwin Drood survives Jasper's murder attempt. Datchery is Bazzard in disguise, but Helena disguises herself as well to overhear Jasper's mumbling under the influence of opium. Though now accepted as Morford's work, it was once rumored to have been authored by Charles Dickens, Jr. and Wilkie Collins (despite Collins' disavowal). N° de réf. du libraire KK-0671-7524
