Other noted authors whose works first appeared in 'Cornhill' include Anthony Trollope, Elizabeth Gaskell, Arthur Conan Doyle, Alfred Tennyson, Henry James, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy, and Charlotte Bronte. Our offering contains an article by Matthew Arnold 'Anarchy and Authority', and a serialised novelette by Charles Lever 'The Bramleighs of Bishop's Folly', plus numerous other articles, and short stories. The entire volume is illustrated by a number of nicely-done engravings. The spine has been professionally re-backed, the leather still showing some early rubbing. The binding is tight and the contents are exceptionally clean. In very good overall condition. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations.

[THE LONDON TIMES NEWSPAPER]
The Times / Engineering Supplement [Bound with] Financial and Commercial Supplement [Bound with] Educational Supplement
London, The Times Newspaper, 1907 to 1911. Hardcover.folio,Folio size volume bound in 3/4 leather over dark 'pebbled' cloth,A run of three different supplements (special issues) from the London Times. The Engineering Supplement runs from January 2, 1907 to October 2, 1907; the Financial and Commercial Supplement from January 7, 1907 to May 6, 1907, and the Educational Supplement from September 6, 1910 to December 5, 1911. The text is printed on newsprint stock, which has now browned a bit. The binding of this large, heavy, volume has been allowed in the past to dry, and hence the front joint is partially cracked and the boards show wear to extremities. The binding is still quite dry and must be handled with care. However, the contents are clean and unmarked. Given the ephemeral nature of such publications, it is quite unusual to find such an extensive run, and in such good condition (the binding notwithstanding). We would ask that, if a purchase is contemplated, you first enquire as to shipping costs and options for this heavy volume. .
