p. 6-14. This is a copy

p. 6-14. This is a copy of the first edition published by Smith, Elder & Co., the advert. being still one leaf with the (cancel)title page. As soon as one realized the discrepancy between the advertisement and the date on the title page, the advertisement has been severed from the title page and pasted at the end (Smith p. 13). Containing the catalogue dated May 1848 (the earliest), but, as often, lacking the errata slip. This means that this copy is one of the 279 copies sold between 1848 and 1853. The fact that this is a very early copy is further enhanced by the lack of Westley‟s binder‟s ticket, which appeared from 1850 on. A very good clean copy in original binding, missing only a small fragment of the top of the spine and a small tear (hardly visible) halfway the spine. *Smith p. 6-14. This collection of verses contains 19 poems by Charlotte Brontë ("Currer Bell"), and 21 each by Emily ("Ellis") and Anne ("Acton"). First published by Aylott Jones in 1846 in an edition of 1000 copies, Only 39 copies were sold. The remaining 961 copies were placed in storage and were only reissued in October 1848 by Smith, Elder, and Co., following the success of Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre. - € 2250,- [BRONTË, Charlotte] – Currer BELL : Jane Eyre: An Autobiography by Currer Bell.

II misnumbered „403‟. *Smith p. 110-116. A 1 st issue of Charlotte Bronte‟s second novel, completed in the year her brother and two sisters died. Lady Ashburton was close to Carlyle in a way that triggered much gossip, which grants this set an interesting provenance. - € 3250,- [BRONTË, Charlotte] - Currer BELL : Villette. By Currer Bell, author of „Jane Eyre,‟ „Shirley‟, etc. London, Smith, Elder & Co./ Bombay: Smith, Taylor, and Co., 1853. 3 vols., [iv], 324, [12 pp. ads]; [iv], 319, [i]; [iv], 350, [ii] pp. Publisher's catalogue dated „January 1853‟ at the end of volume I.

Of the …Brontë Family1917: 145; *Horsfall Turner: Brontëana 1898: 101. Notwithstanding these flaws an attractive copy of this tiny booklet which is, also in the second edition, of the utmost rarity. The books written by the father of the famous Brontë sisters played a decisive role in stimulating the children‟s literary ambitions.
