Flush is an imaginative biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s cocker spaniel, is a cross-genre blend of fiction and nonfiction by Virginia Woolf published in 1933.

Woolf’s inspiration was her own cocker spaniel, Pinka. Woolf had read the letters and poems that Browning had written about her dog, Flush. Woolf decided that he would be an interesting subject for a biography and although it is narrated in the third person, the book is written mainly from the perspective of the dog. As Virginia Woolf implied to a friend, “Flush” was really her dog, “Pinka,” who she used as a model for the red cocker.

The Cocktail Party is a play by British playwright T.S. Eliot that first premiered in Edinburgh in 1949 and on Broadway one year later. Focusing on a disturbed married couple that settles their snags and moves on with their life with the help of a mysterious guest who attends a cocktail party with them, it explores themes that are common in many of Eliot’s works. However, these include the separation of the human condition, and the power of Christian sacrifice to further the life of the community as a whole. Although it jumps out seeming to be a irony of old-style British drawing room comedies, over the course of the play it takes on the tone of a shadier philosophical study of human relations.

The elements of the play are based on Alcestis, by the Ancient Greek playwright Euripides. No Doubt, this play was the most popular of Eliot’s seven plays in his lifetime, although his 1935 play, Murder in the Cathedral, is better remembered today.

Title: Pride and Prejudice

Publisher: Dent, UK

Publication Date: 1902

Binding: Cloth

Illustrator: H M Brock

Book Condition: Very Good ++

Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket

Signed: Signed by Illustrator

Edition: Fifth Edition.

Pride and Prejudice is set in rural England in the early 19th century, and it follows the Bennet family, which includes five very different sisters. Mrs. Bennet is anxious to see all her daughters married, especially as the modest family estate is to be inherited by William Collins when Mr. Bennet dies.

At a ball, the rich and newly arrived Charles Bingley takes a good attention in the eldest Bennet daughter, the beautiful and shy Jane. The encounter between his friend Darcy and Elizabeth is less cordial.

Although Austen shows them intrigued by each other, she reverses the convention of first impressions: pride of rank and fortune and prejudice against the social humbleness of Elizabeth’s family hold Darcy aloof, while Elizabeth is equally fired both by the pride of self-respect and by prejudice against Darcy’s snobbery.

To Have and Have Not is a novel by Ernest Hemingway published in 1937 about Harry Morgan, a fishing boat captain out of Key West, Florida. The novel portrays Harry as a regular working man of the Despair Era, forced by dreadful economic forces into the black-market activity of running contraband between Cuba and Florida.

Ernest Miller Hemingway was an American journalist, novelist, short-story writer, and sportsman. His economical and understated style—which he termed the iceberg theory—had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his adventurous lifestyle and his public image brought him admiration from later generations.

Title: The American Claimant. FIRST EDITION

Publisher: Chatto & Windus, London

Publication Date: 1892

Binding: Hardcover

Illustrator: with 81 illustrations by Dan Beard and Hal Hurst

Book Condition: Very Good

Edition: 1st Edition

“The American Claimant is a huge fun. In the novel we have the pleasure of seeing Mark Twain’s imagination go berserk,” writes Bobbie Ann Mason in her introduction.

The American Claimant is a comedy of mistaken identities and numerous character switches–fertile and familiar Mark Twain territory. Its cast of characters include an American enamoured of British hereditary aristocracy and a British earl entranced by American democracy. The central character, Colonel Mulberry Sellers, is an irrepressible, buoyant mad scientist, Mason writes, “brimming with harebrained ideas. Nothing is impossible for him…. He’s totally loopy.”

Priceless among the most popular books of Mark Twain’s is not only rare and elite but a collectible book one would undeniably want.
