Beatrix Potter by Beatrix Potter


Original Title: Beatrix Potter

The beautiful, cloth-bound and embroidered limited edition of Beatrix Potter's Complete Talesis a fabulous collector's piece. The design is inspired by Beatrix Potter's love of textiles and embroidery. Her grandfather had owned a calico printing firm, called the Dinting Vale Printworks, and been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society for his innovative printing techniques. Beatrix had therefore grown up with an understanding and appreciation of good textile design. In the early 20th century, when her publisher Frederick Warne & Co., was planning deluxe editions of The Tailor of Gloucesterand The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin,Beatrix insisted that the cloth bindings should be 'distinctly different and pretty'. The unusual flower-printed cloth that was finally used on these books actually came from her grandfather's printing works at her suggestion. The Tailor of Gloucesterdemonstrates how Beatrix revelled in beautiful textiles; the exquisite paintings in this book of intricately embroidered clothes, copied from eighteenth-century examples in a museum, are amongst her finest work.

The Complete Tales Of Lucy Gold by Kate Bernheimer


Original Title: The Complete Tales Of Lucy Gold

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 As a child, Lucy dreams of talking fairies and lives contentedly in the wooded suburbs of Boston; she grows up to be a successful animator of fairy-tale films. Or does she? She claims at moments to be a witch in the woods. Like her sisters, who appeared in Bernheimer’s first two novels (The Complete Tales of Ketzia Gold and The Complete Tales of Merry Gold), Lucy has a secret, but she is unable to fasten onto anything but brightness. Novelist Donna Tartt writes, “Lucy’s particular brand of optimism, blind to its own shadow, is very American—she is innocence holding itself apart so fastidiously that it becomes its opposite.” This novel is a perfect end to the Gold family series, and the perfect introduction, for new readers, to Bernheimer’s enchanting body of work.

The Complete Tales Of Washington Irving by Charles Neider


Original Title: The Complete Tales Of Washington Irving

Washington Irving (1783–1859) was the first American literary artist to earn his living solely through his writings and the first to enjoy international acclaim. In addition to his long public service as a diplomat, Irving was amazingly prolific: His collected works fill forty volumes that encompass essays, history, travel writings, and multi-volume biographies of Columbus and Washington. But it is Irving's mastery of suspense, characterization, tempo, and irony that transforms his fiction into virtuoso performances, earning him his reputation as the father of the American short story. Charles Neider has gathered all sixty-one of Irving's tales, originally scattered throughout his many collections of nonfiction essays and sketches, into one magnificent volume. Together, they reveal his wide range: besides the expected classics like "Rip Van Winkle," "The Spectre Bridegroom," "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," and "The Devil and Tom Walker," his fiction embraces realistic tales, ghost stories, parodies, legends, fables, and satires. For those familiar only with secondhand retellings of Irving's most famous tales, this collection offers the opportunity to step inside Washington Irving's imagination and partake of its innumerable and timeless pleasures.
