Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (bound with) The Merry Men and Other Tales and Fables; (and (separate copy)) (bound with) The Master of Ballantrae (2 uniform volumes, each containing a copy of Jekyll & Hyde)
TWO RARE, VARIANT PIRACIES OF A MUCH BELOVED TALE OF DRUG EXPERIMENTATION GONE AWRY! ! N.d. (ca. 1895-1900) Two volumes, uniformly bound. Green cloth, gilt titles, rules, gilt decorations to spine. Pagination as follows: The Merry Men, 236 pp. (also includes the following fables: Will o' the Mill; Markheim; Thrawn Janet; Olalla; The Treasure of Franchard); Dr Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, (6) 81 pp.; with separate title page & prelims.; 3 pp. pub. cat. at rear; SECOND VOLUME: The Master of Ballantrae AND Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, 416 pp. (pagination unbroken in this vol). Both very nicely preserved copies, showing only the merest signs of age to paper & near-invisible shelf-wear - seldom seen in such NEAR-PRISTINE CONDITION! Two odd, early, variant editions of this Haycraft-Queen cornerstone by A.L. Burt - these editions being from a uniformly bound, collected edition of Stevenson's works. As is common with unauthorized editions (piracies) these hastily & cheaply bound books offer a fascinating source of biblio-blunder mysteriosa: why did Burt publish the same title in two separate volumes of the same uniform series? why does one issue have its own title page, table of contents & pagination, while the other has unbroken pagination-as if Dr.J/Mr.H was merely an end chapter of Master of Ballantrae? are these unrecorded editions? What intrepid scholar dare solve the mystery held in these strange editions of a little novelette that has had such a profound effect on the Modern imagination? ! Kindly enquire about other Stevenson titles in this uniformly bound series - some equally as confusing. Size: 12mo. N° de ref. de la librería 000822
