6 HENTY G. A.: The Plague Ship. Original penny paperback in the “SPCK Penny Library of Fiction” series rebound without covers with 17 other titles in the one volume.
London, Brighton & New York, SPCK, Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1889 1st edition 
Hardback, 8.5 x 5.5 inches. Pebbled maroon cloth covers with gilt lettering and gilt line banding to spine. In very good condition. Minor rubbing to edges. Endpapers darkened and front free endpaper clipped at top edge. Some light yellowing and scattered foxing. Else a very tight and clean copy. Very scarce. 5 b&w illus. in text, (ii), [3]-32. The “SPCK Penny Library of Fiction” appeared on a regular basis, each issue containing 32 pages bound in a colour paper cover. Some copies were sold separately while others where bound up without covers into volumes containing six separate titles and issued in cloth and in wraps as the “Library of Fiction.” This bound volume contains the first three volumes of the SPCK “Library of Fiction” rebound without covers in the one volume. There is so little information about the different states of issue and all are very scarce that I am regarding all 18 titles as first issues of the first edition. “The Plague Ship” is regarded by Dartt as the rarest Henty first edition though that is debatable, “Seaside Maidens” and “The Ranche in the Valley” are to my mind of comparable rarity. The 17 other titles include books by Grant Allen (two titles,) Geo. Manville Fenn (three titles,) Mrs. Riddell (one title,) and B L Farjeon (one title.)
