1 Bronte, Emily; Bronte, Charlotte (Preface by) Wuthering Heights
This is a beautifully bound special edition in deep blue leatherette with gold patterns on all sides. The spine has three raised bands.

The preface, therefore, is signed by Currer Bell; each took the last name of Bell when dealing with the public. The pages are gilt on all sides, with a blank bookplate laid in the front. Illustrated in black & white, some two page illustrations. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

For Whom the Bell Tolls, Hemingway, Ernest
3 Hemingway, Ernest For Whom the Bell Tolls
Hemingway was a foreign correspondent for many years, and this book, his third, was not published until 1940. In between he did have a short story published. This book is part of a series, of which others are available. The binding is covered in a deep blue fabric, with gold and silver lettering and a silver stamp of a quill pen. Very light wear on this book (shelf wear) is found on the spine top and bottom and the corners. The front board has a few places where the fabric is a bit shiny if you look in the right light. The title is taken from a piece by John Donne. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

8 Thackery, William Makepeace Vanity Fair: a Novel Without a Hero
This is a beautifully bound special edition book in deep brown leatherette with gold patterns on all sides. The spine has five raised bands. This is a wild novel filled to the brim with intrigue and love attachments, it satirizes society in early 19th-century Britain. The book's title comes from John Bunyan's allegorical story The Pilgrim's Progress, first published in 1678 and still widely read at the time of Thackeray's novel. In that work, "Vanity Fair" refers to a stop along the pilgrim's progress: a never-ending fair held in a town called Vanity, which is meant to represent man's sinful attachment to worldly things. The pages are gilt on all sides, with a blank bookplate laid in the front. Illustrated with four wood engravings and all 39 steel engravings Thackeray made for the first edition of this book. The end papers are deep brown with a small geometric design. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
