 O'BRIEN, Edna, The High Road
O'BRIEN, Edna
The High Road
London, Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1988. Hardcover. pp. 180.8vo,,,This is a special issue of the first edition of this title, 150 copies only being bound from the sheets of the first trade edition, each of which is numbered (this being #43) and signed by the author on a inserted page, preceded by a cancel title page bearing the imprint of London Limited Editions. There is virtually no information easily available about this imprint, but it appears that it was an off-shoot of the London bookseller and publisher, Bertram Rota Limited, as the address and telephone number for London Limited Editions are the same as that for Bertram Rota (31 Long Acre, Covent Garden, London), and they are well known for their speciality in modern first editions. It also appears that these limited editions were only issued from 1985 to 1994, each title being bound similarly (but quite differently from the trade edition), the style being half cloth over marbled boards, with the author, title, and series name being lettered and boxed in gilt to the spine. The book is enclosed in the original delicate glassine wrapper. The book is in near fine condition, with no visible flaws. The glassine wrapper shows light wrinkling at the spine ends, but is otherwise in very good condition. .

 Brooke, Mr. [Henry], The Fool of Quality; or the History of Henry Earl of Moreland / 5 Volumes
Brooke, Mr. [Henry]
The Fool of Quality; or the History of Henry Earl of Moreland / 5 Volumes
London, W. Johnston, 1770. Leather Bound. 8vo. Bound in contemporary full brown leather. Red spine labels, gilt lettering and volume numbers, and raised bands to spines. General scuffing, hinges starting, some loss to spines at head, surface crackling to leather, Lord Strathallan's bookplate to front endpapers, tidy calligraphied initials to one title page, contents clean and unmarked, bindings sound. The first three volumes are said on the title page, to belong to the "Second Edition /In Four Volumes". The fourth and fifth volumes are given, on the title pages, volume numbers only (and therefore presumably first editions). At the end of volume 4 there is an ‘Advertisement' beginning "It was originally proposed to have comprised this Work in four Volumes; but the Matter has grown so upon the Writer that he finds himself under a necessity of taking more Room": hence the unexpected 5th volume.The Fool of Quality was a popular British novel of sensibility, "a rambling narrative centred on the education of an ideal nobleman. Its moral message recommended it to John Wesley, a founder of Methodism, who edited an abridged version in 1780." (- Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature). .
