National Book Auctions

National Book Auctions was founded in the 1990s as an online platform for the trade of rare, antique and collectible books. Since the purchase of a retail space in Ithaca, New York, in 2004, the company has also engaged in public gallery auctions, and National Book Auctions continues to balance its online presence with auctions that are open to the public, incorporating online absentee bidding (both advance and real-time) and phone bidding during each auction.

Consignment plays a major role in the business of National Book Auctions, and over the years their specialists have noted that rare and highly collectible books often go undersold in general sales. As a specialist auction house dealing in books, documents and other ephemera, they therefore offer a high level of expertise and specialist knowledge to ensure that rare items are accurately described, well marketed, and sold for a good price. Since the company started, National Book Auctions and its partner companies have sold hundreds of thousands of volumes through live auction and online markets.

Charles Perrault / C S Evans CINDERELLA 1919 First...
Title: Cinderella Retold by C. S. Evans\nAuthor: Charles Perrault - Charles Perrault was a French author and member of the Academie francaise. He laid the foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, with his works derived from pre-existing folk tales. The best known of his tales include "Le Petit Chaperon rouge" ("Little Red Riding Hood"), "Cendrillon" ("Cinderella"), "Le Chat Botté" ("Puss in Boots"), "La Belle au bois dormant" ("The Sleeping Beauty") and "La Barbe bleue" ("Bluebeard").Many of Perrault's stories, which were rewritten by the Brothers Grimm, continue to be printed and have been adapted to opera, ballet (such as Tchaikovsky's "The Sleeping Beauty"), theatre, and film (Disney). Perrault was an influential figure in the 17th-century French literary scene, and was the leader of the Modern faction during the Quarrel of the Ancients and the Moderns.\n, C. S. Evans - "Charles Seddon Evans was educated at East London College and began his career as a schoolmaster before joining the publishing house of Edward Arnold as Educational Editor in 1909. He moved to the firm of Heinemann in 1913, where he spent the rest of his working life, becoming Chairman and Managing Director in 1932. He wrote this version of The Sleeping Beauty as a companion volume to Cinderella, also illustrated by Arthur Rackham. The story first appeared in English in 1729, when Robert Samber translated Charles Perrault's fairy tale La Belle au bois dormant. C.S. Evans has expanded Perrault's story but followed the later version recorded by the Brothers Grimm in giving his heroine the name of Briar-Rose and ending with her awakening and betrothal, omitting the wicked mother-in-law who orders her grandchildren to be cooked for supper. Instead he lengthens the story by such inventive details as the menu for the christening feast, the books of magic consulted for an antidote to the thirteenth fairy's malice, and the many accomplishments of Princess Briar-Rose."
