About this Item: George Allen, UK, 1894. Cloth. Condition: Very Good ++. No Jacket. Hugh Thomson (illustrator). First Edition. 1st Edition 1894. Very rare vairent with much bigger boards (1cm higher) than the normal version more commonly seen. Page edges are un-evenly cut, different paper quality to the normal edition and Gilt to top edge.

Dated 1894 with name. No mention of this binding in the bibliography. The famous "Peacock edition" of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice".

In lovely condition. Contents very good. Text block tight. Ligt foxing to a few pages. Very un-common as nice as this. More images can be taken upon request. Ref14279 Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall.

When working on a new illustration, Thomson would research his subject in the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

About this Item: George Allen, Ruskin House, London, 1894. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Hugh Thomson (illustrator). The iconic first Hugh Thomson illustrated edition of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. This copy bound wonderfully, with the important Peacock cloth binding bound-in at the rear. Bookplates whithin (loose, not glued down) of Mrs. Thomas Elliott Donnelley; Thomas E. Donnelley was the early 20th century President of R.R. Donnelley and Sons, a well-known publisher. Physical Attributes - Measures 18 x 12 x 4 cm. Full calf fine-binding. Five raised spine ribs; all spine compartments ruled in gilt, title and author in gilt in one spine compartment, and "London 1894" at bottom of spine. Boards ruled in double gilt, with a dentelle inner border. All edges ruled in gilt. Double stack endbands, alternating yellow and red. Turn-ins also ruled in gilt. Top-edge gilt. Publisher's cloth binding bound-in at the rear of the volume on blank endpapers. Pages - (2), xxviii, 476, colophon, leaf with cloth spine, leaf with front board cloth, (2). Condition - See pictures. Beautiful book. Leather is soft and subtle. I'll nitpick. Spine has slight discoloration and some tiny cracks in the compartments, with a rub on the top spine rib. Bottom edges have a little wear. Front joint has a little color loss along the joint. Front board has a 2 cm scrape at top edge, and a 1 cm scrape near bottom of fore-edge, both surface level only. Slight toning to un-gilded fore-edge and bottom-edge. Leather turn-ins have ghosted onto the facing endpapers (perhaps a leather conditioner that was used caused this). Miraculously, no bookseller notes on the blank unpaginated pages. The illustration index has several pencil "x" marks; I erased them but still faintly visible. I checked the illustrations with an "x", and they are present, so the writer must have been noting their favorites. Occasional very small dot (singular) on pages. Pencil binder note "26" on back of colophon (rear of text). Pages 107-115 have small yellow dot at top of fore-edge margin (no text touched). 700 grams. Seller Inventory # 228

About this Item: George Allen, London, 1894. Condition: Near Fine. First edition thus. A lovely, Near Fine copy of the famous "peacock" edition of Pride and Prejudice, illustrated by Hugh Thomson. Bright gilt and cloth covers in excellent condition. Minor abraisons to the cloth, previous owner's bookplate on the front paste-down and four leaves with a horizontal tear professionally closed (pgs. 427-434). A highly collectible edition. Austen's beloved masterpiece. "Pride and Prejudice" follows the classic relationship between the clever Elizabeth Bennett and the seemingly distant Mr. Darcy. Austen actually finished an early version of the novel, titled "First Impressions," when she was a mere 21. The book received a great deal of praise when it was released, with one well regarded critic of the day saying he "would rather have written Pride and Prejudice, or Tom Jones, than any of the Waverley Novels." The artist, Hugh Thomson, was most famous for his illustrations of Austen's work, as well as the work of Charles Dickens. Known for his attention to detail, he would often spend a great deal of time in museums researching the lifestyles and dress of the characters he was depicting, Thomson started working on his drawings for "Pride and Prejudice" in 1893. They proved an immense success, selling over 10,000 copies in the few years after they were released. He would go on to illustrate many of Austen's other novels as well. Near Fine.

About this Item: Ruskin House. George Allen. London, 1894. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Hardcover. Dark green cloth with 'peacock' decorations in gold. Gold lettering. All edges gilt. Clean and tight and in quite good condition overall. Corners are not as sharp as when the book was new, but they have only the faintest wear. Back cover, plain green, has some gentle & expected shelf-wear. Attractive personal bookplate on the inside front cover, the name Samuel A.B. Abbott, a noted Boston collector from the turn of the century. Gift inscription from 1894 on the first blank page. There is foxing to the endpapers and first few leaves (also at the end). Tissue guard is missing from the frontispiece. Title page is dated 1894, making this the first edition of this edition. 476 pages. Text block tight. In all, a very attractive copy which has every indication of never having been read. Its flaws are entirely from the aging of the materials, never from rough handling or accident. A subtle and even overall toning to the pages. Gilt edges are free of scratches. Doubtless, the close inspection of a perfectionist might drive them to keep searching for a 'perfect' copy; but this is as nice an example of the famous Peacock binding as we've seen.

About this Item: George Allen, London, 1894. Decorative Cloth. Condition: Fair. Hugh Thomson (illustrator). 1st Edition. A fair to good copy of the 1st publication of the 'Peacock Edition' of Pride and Prejudice with illustrations by Hugh Thomson. In the original green decorative cloth binding with spectacular gilt peacock design to front board and gilt designs to spine. Aeg. With numerous black and white illustrations by Thomson. The binding is bright and clean. The front board has wear to the corners with slight cloth loss and a small indentation at the side edge also with slight cloth loss. The spine is cocked to the front and is slightly dulled with some pulling and slight fraying at the bottom. The back board has some corner wear and slightly faded areas. The original black endpapers are present with early splitting at the front joint and more obvious splitting at the rear joint where there has been repair. The book is sound but shaken - with webbing visible at p 32/3 and 352. Contents are complete and in good clean condition. There is a light stain to the side edge of the fep which persists to the dedication page, and occasional spotting primarily to margins. There is some marking at pp 18/19. There is what looks like an old repair to the corners of pp 175/6 and 177/8 where a section was probably torn and reattached - there is slight loss of text underneath the adhesive that has been used. There are a couple of very small edge tears at the bottom margin. Seller Inventory # 032662

About this Item: George Allen & Company, London, 1895. Green Cloth. Condition: Good. No Jacket. Second Impression Thus. 476pp. 1895. 12mo. A second impression of the Hugh Thomson illustrated edition in good or good plus condition. The charming 'peacock' edition - named so because of it's elaborate gilt stamped peacock design to the front board (virtually no soiling and not mottling to this board) Original publisher's green boards profusely stamped in gilt to the spine and the front board All edges gilt. The text beautifully illustrated with numerous charming engraved illustrations after Hugh Thomson including a (no tissue-guard) frontispiece. No inscriptions. A little spotting to the endpapers to include the title page. Rubbing to three board corners with loss of outer cloth. Light splitting to the rear inner hinge - the board remains firmly attached. Some rubbing to the cloth joints - around 5 small areas of rubbing to one side and four to the other with a probable expert repair to that joint around 6cm in length. A small circular (about 3mm in diameter) ink stain to the leading fore-edge - not very noticeable due to the gilt with several tiny associated ink speck marks. A light soil mark to the front endpaper about 5mm in length with an associated offset mark to the front paste-down and a similar mark to the verso of the front endpaper. The text block remains very clean. A good plus tight, clean copy. Shipping from the UK. Seller Inventory # 238731
