The Woman In White - Wilkie Collins

1860 - Sampson Low, London - First Edition
‘The best men are not consistent in good—why should the worst men be consistent in evil?’

Elegantly bound three volume first edition of what is considered to be one of the first murder mystery titles ever written, and hailed by Margaret Oliphant as
‘a new beginning in fiction’. The Woman in White is a dazzling display of literary prowess, causing a flurry of excitement upon its publication. By the time the novel had finished its first print run, Collins was earning a yearly income of over £10,000 pounds. It features a cast of unforgettable characters, including the plain, but brilliant ‘spinster’ Marian Halcome, and the nefarious Count Fosco, whose schemes and plots have earned him a place among the ranks of the best fictional villains.

The book has since been adapted into countless radio-shows, screenplays, television series, and movies, and is listed by The Mystery Writers of America, The Crime Writer’s Association,
The Telegraph, Julian Symons, and Haycraft Queen as one of the best Crime/Mystery Novels.

The Secret Agent. A Simple Tale - Joseph Conrad

1907 - Methuen & Co., London - First Edition
‘I confess that it makes a grisly skeleton. But I will submit that telling Winnie Verloc’s story to its anarchistic end of utter desolation, madness an despair, and telling it as I have told it here, I have not intended to commit a gratuitous outrage on the feelings of mankind’ – Conrad, of The Secret Agent in a later edition.

One of the first examples of a double agent ever produced on paper, and the first book to examine terrorism as a plot device, Conrad’s novel follows Adolf Verloc: a spy with an allegiance to an unnamed country, and his brother-in-law Stevie as they track down a conglomerate of anarchists, terrorists, and spies, risking the loss of everything they hold dear. Based on the true events of the Greenwich Bombing of 1894, Conrad’s Stevie follows a similar trajectory to that of French anarchist, Martial Bourdin.

I am afraid that if you want to go down into history you'll have to do something for it.’

Two volumes adorned in the scarce and stunning gold dust jackets. Corley’s tales of mystery and wonder have become celebrated for their spin on traditional fairy-tale motifs, amplifying them with darker, sinister elements... along with occasional comedy.

Drawing influences famed myths and legends from Persia, Ireland, China and Greece, both volumes are profusely illustrated throughout with the author’s own Harry Clarke-esque illustrations, and include a foreword by American sci-fi writer, James Branch Cabell.
