Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog).

Bristol: J.W. Arrowsmith, 1889. [Humour] First Edition, FIRST ISSUE. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.[6] 315 [5]. Earliest title-page shows 'Quay Street' imprint without the street number '11' present, plus first state adverts listing thirty seven Bristol Library titles ending in Max O'Rell's Jaques Bonhomme (later ads list forty six titles). With frequent illustrations by Frederics. Publisher's cyan cloth with titles in gilt to spine and black to upper. Recently re-cased with repairs to hinges. Lacks front fly-leaf. Light toning to edges, and touch of occasional spotting, otherwise a nice clean copy. Cloth moderately toned and marked. Very good. The ultimate late-Victorian satire of the Great British Holiday, involving an ill-conceived jaunt along the Thames and a host of fabulously English characters including the relentlessly Pan-like canine companion Montmorency. Adapted in many forms, and notably voiced as an audiobook by Hugh Laurie, it develops an idyllically inept vision of England still familiar today. Item #65526
