Friday Giveaway - contest closed

This is the last giveaway before the book comes out, so I thought I would make it a little special. Today's giveaway will have three separate prizes; first, second, and third. Let's start with the big one:




Twain's classic "Huckleberry Finn" published by The Easton Press, 1994. Bound in rich red full leather with gilt decoration on spine and front cover, four raised bands on spine, archival quality paper - Golden Tan Moire Silk end papers and Golden Tan Satin ribbon book mark, gilt all edges. A lovely book.

Second prize is this great set of collected stories by English authors, put out by Scribners in the early 1900s.



Includes authors like J.M. Barrie, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Thomas Hardy, Sir Walter Scott and dozens more.

Finally, the third prize is this quaint set, "Hours In A Library" in four volumes by Leslie Stephen. Published by G.P. Putnam, 1907. "New" edition, with additions.


Stephen was a well-known author and critic, and father of Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell. These four volumes contain short vignettes on the books of various authors. Included are pieces on Defoe, Hawthorne, Walpole, George Eliot, Coleridge, Wordsworth, Charlotte Bronte and others.

Contest closed, results in a moment.

They're all beautiful, but I'm particularly keen on the English Authors set!

maxwell said...

Looking good!

Timothy Cahill said...

Michael, all the time I've squandered on Stumble was repaid in full recently when I discovered your site. It is quite literally wonderful (i.e., filled with wonders), not to mention mysterious and poignant. I enjoyed the WSJ piece, and learned from it that we are neighbors; I'm in Albany, which has a fine used bookstore of it's own, but I think a drive to Oneonta is soon in order. Congratulations on your forthcoming book. Like many here, I see the British Authors as the big score this week, but the Library quartet looks scrumptious too.

Kelly Marriott said...

Hours in a Library sounds HEAVENLY! Counting the days until your book.

Crystal said...

Eep! I almost missed the deadline. Count me in, please!
