Original blue cloth on boards. Long inscription and letter on first free endpaper. Collins,born in 1907, has at least 16 novels to his credit, but seems to have become better known as a radio and TV executive for the BBC.

Green cloth on boards. Welcome to our Wilkie Collins Revival ! We have just purchased about half of a large collection published in the 40's, and nearly loved to death. I have glued cracked hinges and unfolded the odd corner, but don't expect perfection. This is a personal project, to see if we can introduce new readers to a friend and associate of Charles Dickens, to whom this title is dedicated. First written in 1854, when the Crimean War had everyone's attention,... View more info

Green cloth on boards. Hinges cracked and glued. Previous owner's name. Of all the Wilkie Collins titles I have recently listed, this one is the most tempting to be read. The storyteller allows himself to be involved in various dangerous events as a result of accompanying Romayne, the self-centered "hero" of the story, to France as companion to Romayne's aging aunt, who is afraid to cross the Channel. And that's only the beginning ! I suggest you check out in... View more info

Seller ID: 002589

Condition: Good Plus


Original full brown suede leather with red title plate lettered in gilt. No others in this binding found. Believed First Edition since author (Rev. Charles Gordon) was Canadian, and a Presbyterian minister, but no conclusive evidence. (Westminster is an important Presbyterian publishing house). Edges a little grubby, but such a lovely "feel" ! Hinges repaired previously with masking tape, and I glued a portion of the cover to the text block at the rear hinge.... View more info

Price: $50.00

Publisher: Toronto, The Westminster Company, Ltd.: 1899

Edition: First ( No Additional printings)

Seller ID: 006247

Condition: Good Plus


Original cream and brown cloth on boards. I am confident that this is the true First Edition, since "Connor" was a Presbyterian minister and Westminster was the Presbyterian publishing house. I assume that he would give them the first chance to publish this book, since they had published Black Rock the previous year. Previous owner's name in large, lovely script. No other writing. Lightly cocked. 300 pp. View more info
