F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby β€’β€’β€’
New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1925. Reprint (trade edition published in 1925 by Scribners). Hardcover. 12mo. Blue cloth binding. Dark topstain. 218 pp. Covers are somewhat worn, faded along extremities. Dampstain along upper edge of pp. 206-218 penetrating in two small discontinuous patches at forecorner and page center to a depth of between 1mm and 3mm (approximately--see photos).

Rachel Carson - Under the Sea Wind: A Naturalist's Picture of Ocean Life
β€’β€’β€’
New York: Oxford University Press, 1952 (first published in 1941.) Second edition, with corrections. Hardcover. Small 8vo. 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.

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.

Robert Heinlein - The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
β€’β€’β€’
New York: Putnam, 1966. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. 8vo. Red cloth binding. 383 pp. Unprepossessing ex-library copy of Heinlein's science fiction masterpiece, with extensive wear and library markings on the front endpaper and upper textblock edge. Sides of covers and textblock are scuffed and smudged. Front free endpaper is clipped irregularly at upper forecorner and adorned with card pouch. Faint ink smudge markings to rear endpaper. No markings to pages otherwise, though, and text remains completely legible. Dust jacket still in good condition under sturdy if somewhat dullened library mylar; there is a single small closed tear (about 3mm long) on the upper front edge at the hinge. No library sticker on the jacket spine. The jacket flaps are glued to the insides of the covers, unfortunately; I am confident, however, that a book wizard with unusual precision would be able to extricate the jacket without too much trouble. β€’β€’β€’
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress won the 1967 Hugo Award and in a 1998 Locus Survey was ranked the fourth best science fiction novel of all time.

George Wells - The Israelid: A Poem, Historical and Prophetic, in Seven Cantos β€’β€’β€’
New York: John Gray, 1859. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. 16mo. Navy blue cloth binding. 139 pp. An unprepossessing but solidly bound copy. Covers are scuffed along periphery and joints, bumped at forecorners. The rear cover has an irregular black/blue toning gradient (whether by staining or sunfading I can't ascertain). Foxing and smudging marks on yellow endpapers. Mild dampstain undulation to first few pages, and smudging/general wear throughout. All text legible. β€’β€’β€’
It is Wells's contention that the Lost Tribes of Israel were just the Goths that overran Europe (today's Anglo-Saxons); this theory he propounds in verse form with Miltonian zest.

Signed by author, with a short inscription, on front free endpaper. A paper insert, reproducing Aquanetta's poem "I Believe," is also signed by the author. The book is in very good condition, with light wear along edges of boards and textblock.

Dust jacket has a tiny bit of edge-wear but is just about pristine.
