'The Modern Prometheus'
-1831 3rd Edition & First Single Volume & First Illustrated Edition-
"After days and nights of incredible labour and fatigue, I succeeded in discovering the cause of generation and life, nay, more, I became myself capable of bestowing animation upon lifeless matter!"
Who hasn't heard of this famous book by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1759-1797), who was a mere teenager at the time she composed one of the most frightening stories ever written. This copy is a beautifully rebound edition of third edition (and the first illustrated edition) published in 1831 and is extremely rare in any condition.
The first edition was released in England in 1818 in three slim volumes in only 500 copies. It was released anonymously because the publisher felt the book would not sell if they listed a woman author. The second edition was published (also in 3 or 2 volume sets in England and France respectively) with Mary Shelley's name. The 1831 edition was the first time FRANKENSTEIN appeared in a single volume but the release was a still a two volume set and FRANKENSTEIN was bound with another story (THE GHOST SEER by Fredereick Schiller). The first half of 'The Ghost Seer' was included in the last half of the first volume and completed in the second volume of this set. Very few of these two volume sets exist today because as it turned out, most people were more interested in Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN than Schiller's story so they tended to discard the second volume.
The 1831 version of FRANKENSTEIN included a new introduction by Mary Shelley revealing for the first time the details of how she came to write this famous story in the company of two other famous writers (Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley- Mary's husband) while on holiday. The text of the original story was also edited, fine-tuned and altered somewhat from the original 1818 text. This 1831 text is the version generally used by book publishers to this day, making the 1831 release an actual first edition of sorts.
This very special book in a very unique binding is being offered for purchase with a second volume in excellent condition published in 1849 (published by Henry G. Bohn, London) containing the works of Frederick Schiller that includes THE GHOST SEER to enable one to read the entire GHOST SEER story along with some of Schiller's other stories. The Schiller book is a presumed first edition. Price for these two books: $8,995.00 USD.
Dimensions of FRANKENSTEIN: Approximately 6 & 3.8" X 4 & 1/2" X 1 & 1/8"
NOTE: Mary Shelley authored a number of other books and some are available for purchase from the Black Castle Antiquarian & Collectable Books inventory.
The First Editions
1899 & 1897
As one might expect, First Editions of this famous book are quite hard to come by in any condition. The first British edition was published in 1897 with a yellow cloth hard cover and red title letters. The first American edition was released in 1899 with a brown cloth hardcover with an iconic image of a black castle on a hill with bats hovering overhead. These two books were issued in bindings that have had difficulty standing up to the ravages of time so most that have survived tend to be in rather poor condition. For this reason, more and more rebound editions are appearing on the market. The two above first editions have been rebound in high-quality leather to preserve them for generations to come. The 1899 American edition is bound in black and brown leather in an unusual style that leaves the original front cover image visable and intact. The 1897 British edition has been professionally recovered in yellow Morocco leather, likely by the exquisite and renown CHELSEA BINDERY in London and imprinted with a red title on the front and the spine and a thin red border on the front and the back that matches the original yellow cloth bound version. Both books are therefore unique in terms of the covers.
The interior text blocks of both books are intact and tight and unmarked except for a library stamp with the word 'DISCARD' on the title page of the American edition. The 1897 book contains the thicker paper used in the first printings of the first edition and like those initial editions, the book lacks the 'Shoulder of Shasta' ad in the front and the ads in the back. It is hard to say if the binder left them out intentionally, of if they were never there to begin with, because the blank front and rear white pages are not original. However,this book appears to be a first printing of the first edition (because of the lack of any ads found in later printings). In any case, extreme care has been taken to enhance the quality and beauty of the binding of the 1897 book by replacing the front and rear paste-downs and first and last inner pages with dark blue (silk?) fabric that is quite beautiful.
These books may be purchased individually or together in a set of two first editions.
Individually, they are being offered for the price of: $1,800.00 for the 1899 edition and: $4,995.00 for the 1897 edition.
The set of two may be purchased for: $6,500.00.

The History of the Valorous and Witty Knight Errant,
Don Quixote, Of the Mancha
By: Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
First Published in Spain in two parts:
Part 1- 1605 & Part 2- 1615
First Translated into English by Thomas Shelton in 1612 & 1620
This 1675 book is the first English translation and the third Edition of Thomas Shelton’s famous work.
Don Quixote or: The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, is a novel written by Miguel de Cervantes. The novel follows the adventures of Alonso Quijano, a hidalgo who reads so many chivalric novels, that he decides to set out to revive chivalry under the name of Don Quixote. He recruits a simple farmer, Sancho Panza, as his squire, who frequently deals with Don Quixote's rhetorical orations on antiquated knighthood with a unique, earthy wit. He is met by the world as it is, initiating themes like interexuality, realism, metatheatre and literary representation
Published in two volumes a decade apart, in 1605 and 1615, Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published. In a 2002 list of historical literary works, Don Quixote was cited as the "best literary work ever written.”
Title: The History of the Valorous and Witty Knight Errant, Don Quixote, Of the Mancha. Translated Out Of The Spanish by Thomas Shelton; Now Newly Corrected And Amended. BOUND WITH The Second Part Of The History of the Valorous and Witty Knight Errant, Don Quixote, Of the Mancha.
Author: Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra.
Published: 1675, 1672 in London, England by: R. Scott, T. Baffet etc. Richard Hodgkinson.
Description: First and second parts bound in one volume.
Overall: Good to very good for year. Contemporary full calf leather boards. Spine rebacked!
Pages: Very good for year with minimal foxing and soiling, some occasional marginalia, (please see pictures).
Binding: Very good.
Hinges: Good to very good. Sound and flexible with some exterior rubbing wear.
Hardcover: Good to very good for year with some wear and old repairs, (please see pictures).
Spine: Good for year with some rubbing wear, damage to the label and top end chipped with loss, (please see pictures).
WHY IS THIS PARTICULAR VOLUME UNIQUE?
The front inside cover paste-down contains two very interesting book plates:
- An 'Exlibris' plate with the image of a tree and shield and the words "TEMPUS CASUMQUE IN OMNIBUS" containing the hand-written name of 'Francis H. Bacon'
- A "OVER FORK OVER" Cunningham coat of arms plate with a unicorn at the top and a 'Y' in the middle with three rabbit heads with the inscribed name of "Grannville C. Cunningham" at the bottom.
The first blank page opposite the paste-down bears two signatures of previous owners in ink that appear to read:
- Granville C. Cunningham, London, with the date 3rd Nov. 1913
- "Rodusy" (bit hard to read) T Robertson, Cambridge, 1 Oct. 1935
Both of the attractive bookplates (and the Cunningham signature) appear to indicate the book was formerly in the possession of individuals of some degree of repute. A web search reveals considerable information about these individuals, particularly Francis H. Bacon.
There are also a few pages in the text block of the book that contain very neat, small notations by someone pointing out that some of the poetry or stories were actually written by 'Francis Bacon'. This is an unusual bit of information that one might want to confirm.
All of these added features tend to add to the history of the book and none detract from the text.
This is a fabulous, very rare example of an early English translation of Don Quixote that very few individuals will ever even see, let alone have the opportunity to own!
*Note: Other reasonable offers will be considered but a nearly identical copy of this book listed for $11,000.00 on Bauman Rare Books' web site in 2012. This book is so rare that it will only rise in value.

1862 Carlton, Publisher, 413 Broadway, New York
-FIRST AMERICAN EDITION-
The 1862 actual first American edition of Les Miserables was released in five slim volumes by Carlton publishing in New York. Complete sets are very scarce and highly collectable and as one might imagine, very pricey. (Most sell from $2,000 - $5,000.00)
The individual books in the set are in fair to good condition.
The first volume, Fantine
has the most issues; the rear cover has been replaced and as can be seen in the above photo, the spine covering is a bit worn and torn but it has been repaired.
The 4th volume (Rue St. Denis
) is a former library book and contains a library stamp on the title page.
The interior text blocks of all the books are tight and free of any significant marks or tears and are therefore quite readable.
SUMMARIES OF THE STORIES CONTAINED IN EACH VOLUME:
Volume I – Fantine
The story begins in 1815 in Digne, France, as the peasant Jean Valjean, just released from 19 years' imprisonment in the galleys—five years for stealing bread for his starving sister and her family and fourteen more for numerous escape attempts—is turned away by innkeepers because his yellow passport marks him as a former convict. He sleeps on the street, angry and bitter.
Volume II – Cosette
Valjean escapes, is recaptured, and is sentenced to death. The king commutes his sentence to penal servitude for life. While imprisoned at the military port of Toulon, Valjean, at great personal risk, rescues a sailor caught in the ship's rigging. Spectators call for his release. Valjean fakes his own death by allowing himself to fall into the ocean. Authorities report him dead and his body lost.
Volume III – Marius
Eight years later, the friends of the ABC, led by Enjolras, are preparing an act of anti-Orleanist civil unrest on the eve of theParis uprising on 5-6 of june 1832, following the death of General Lamarque, the only French leader who had sympathy towards the working class. They are also joined by the poor of the Cour des miracles, including the Thénardiers' eldest son Gavroche, who is a street urchin.
Volume IV – The Idyll in the Rue Plumet and the Epic in the Rue St. Denis
Éponine prevents the robbery at Valjean's house.
After Éponine's release from prison, she finds Marius at "The Field of the Lark" and sadly tells him that she found Cosette's address. She leads him to Valjean's and Cosette's house on Rue Plumet, and Marius watches the house for a few days. He and Cosette then finally meet and declare their love for one another. Thénardier, Patron-Minette and Brujon manage to escape from prison with the aid of Gavroche. One night, during one of Marius's visits with Cosette, the six men attempt to raid Valjean's and Cosette's house. However, Éponine, who has been sitting by the gates of the house, threatens to scream and awaken the whole neighborhood if the thieves do not leave. Hearing this, they reluctantly retire. Meanwhile, Cosette informs Marius that she and Valjean will be leaving for England in a week's time, which greatly troubles the pair.
Volume V – Jean Valjean
Valjean arrives at the barricade and immediately saves a man's life. He is still not certain if he wants to protect Marius or kill him. Marius recognizes Valjean at first sight. Enjolras announces that they are almost out of cartridges. When Gavroche goes outside the barricade to collect more ammunition from the dead National Guardsmen, he is shot by the troops.
Each book measures 6" X 9.5" by 0.5"

Thank you for putting this together. I was, as you say all over the web searching for study information for the Certified Trainer exam. My company contacted STSI in April, 2008, when we started doing business in WA AMC Theaters. At that time, I received excellent information from you via phone, about the WA security industry in general and acquiring our license. We are on your mailing list and I receive the “Vigilant American” newsletter, a must read for Security professionals. I’ve purchased and used your “Role of the Security Officer” training manual and pocket books. You were also kind enough to send me a firearms lease agreement for our armed agents. In short, having you for a contact has been enormously rewarding for our company, Custom Protective Service. Thank you for all you do for the security industry and your promotion of our country's safety.

If anyone in the world has earned the right to compose a training manual for Security Officers, it is Michael Jaquish. Mr. Jaquish has filled a void in Washington States' Security Officer training program, not only for the officers in the field but for the trainers as well. "The Role of the Security Officer" by Michael Jaquish is a comprehensive training program designed to follow the guide lines mandated by the State of Washington for Security Officer licensing qualifications. I highly recommend this training program to be used state wide because it is professionally written and simplified in its organization. Michael Jaquish is truly a Security Professional concerned about the safety of all Americans. Good job Mike.

- A MANUAL FOR WHAT TO DO WHEN THE WORST HAPPENS-
A guide for maintaining personal safety and security in an unsafe world
Violence and danger is around us all the time. The moment we choose to acknowledge that, we are on our way to a voyage of discovery to formulate plans that will reduce the likelihood that we will become a victim of that violence. Choosing to become a survivor takes a mental leap. For some, that leap is more of an effort than it is for others, but it is possible for everyone.
Survival, first and foremost means awareness. An aware person is a person who is ready for action. It doesn't take a paranoid person to prepare for the possibility that at some point today you may be faced with a situation that may require all your resources to survive. Whether it is utilizing your peripheral vision to duck as something unexpectedly flies in your direction, or avoiding being side-swiped by another car on the freeway, taking refuge during an earthquake or tornado, or taking a wide turn around a shady-looking character as you negotiate your way up the sidewalk on your way to work. all these events will play out in your favor if you are aware and prepared to act according to a plan.
Society has evolved into a condition we call civilized. Civilization has come to mean safety and security.. an environment that nurtures and protects us, preserves individual rights and does not require constant vigilance in order to remain alive. Somehow, this misconception continues to exist amidst a steady stream of evidence to the contrary. Much of modern depression is directly related to the overwhelming series of violence fed to us by the news media every day. Stories of kidnappings, killings, horrific accidents, terrorist attacks and natural disasters numb our senses as we search for answers that will keep us from being swept into the abyss of chaos and anarchy. Most often we fool ourselves into pretending such things happen to others. never to us, and we struggle to go about our daily routines in a state of bliss or complacency... a strange kind of self-imposed condition of denial of the reality that we are in fact living in a very dangerous world. This book offers important tips on how you can take control of your personal security and survive life altering events with confidence.
