Black cloth binding with silver pictorial illustration and lettering. 314 pp. Very good condition. Slight wear along edges of covers and textblock. Immaculate interior. Dust jacket is chipped at spine tips and has a bit of rubbing at forecorners and along joints but is still very good with vivid coloration. Under the Sea Wind was Carson's second, and, in my experience, hardest to find, book.

The Word Up crew spent this week at #BookExpo: checking out new titles, leading breakout sessions, catching up with old friends, establishing new book accounts, soapboxing at Town Hall, and generally absorbing more of the people and systems that make up a big part of the work we do at Word Up. Oh and lining up for Harry Potter 20th anniversary swag (Taran). Many, many thanks to the American Booksellers Association for giving member stores the opportunity to have booksellers attend for free...with some of our own badge-holding collective members not even pictured here, you probably didn't know just how many people you'd have to be accommodating by letting in #WordUpBooks. πŸ€— πŸ€—πŸ€— But you know we're good for it and will do our utmost to make sure Word Up stays strong for our community!

Philip Gilbert Hamerton - Etching and Etchers (lacking illustrated plates)
β€’β€’β€’
London: Macmillan, 1868. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Royal 8vo. 1/4 blue calf binding over brown cloth with gilt lettering and ornamentation. Textblock edges gilt with red accent. Blue endpapers. xxiii, 354 pp. General wear, rubbing to exterior spine leather. Covers are clean and still rather sharp with vivid coloration and relief. Rear free endpaper has a firm diagonal crease, annotation along upper edge recto identifying book as copy 546 alongside 1869 date and author's name in cursive script (though I very much doubt it was written by his own hand, I can't refute the possibility). Endpapers have begun splitting vertically along the front and rear hinges (over intact linen super). Occasional small specks of foxing occur, affecting the preliminary pages, primarily. Unhappily, this copy has been shorn of its plate illustrations. The book's binding is still very firm, a testament to the high quality of its construction, though the first edition of this classic treatise, here exemplified, has become hard to find in any condition.
