Bodley Head, (sometimes also called The Bodley Head Press) is a very venerable and well-respected printing concern that grew out of the hard work and bibliographic obsessions of partners John Lane and Elkin Mathews, in the late nineteenth century.
Always high-minded but with a dash of humor, Bodley Head was named after the bust of Sir Thomas Bodley, the founder of the Bodleian Library at Oxford. It cleaved true to its namesake, and published works of high literary and academic esteem, including James Joyce, Shakespeare, Milton and the classic works of literature at the time. Bodley Head originally started as a collaborative effort between the two booksellers to establish a trade in London, collecting and selling rare books while publishing their own editions. The printing company however, went from success to success, even spawning the offshoot The Yellow Book, a quarterly illustrated literary journal of the late 1890’s, associated with many of the leafing aesthetes, ‘dandies’ and transcendentalists of the day – including Beardsley, Oscar Wilde, Yeats, and Henry James.
The publishing concern itself became a private company in the 1920’s but the ‘stylish decadence’ with which it was associated began to pale as the horrors of the first world war hit the national consciousness. It attempted to publish more popular fictional works (including Agatha Christie), but, however, did not really recover until it was resurrected as an imprint of both Penguin Books and, later, the publishing mega-corporation, Random House.
Its years of association with Penguin saw the imprint take on a much more creative and fictive mood; publishing many classics of literature, story, and rhyme including C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia, Lewis Carol, and H.G Wells. It continued to maintain a high degree of finesse and elegance with its limited editions – many of them now command a very high price at auction, thanks to the respect paid to them by their owners and the legacy of the press as a whole.
Situated as it is, at the confluence of some of the great publishing houses of the nineteenth and early twentieth century; the Bodley Head is bound to attract a lot of interest, with many special signed editions or publisher-only copies available for a high price. For the careful collector (who may not want to pay tens of thousands of dollars) look instead for the first edition prints of the later Penguin Bodley Head Print, such as some of the very good Graham Greene edition still available for just a few hundred pounds. Whereas the full first edition set of C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia, signed and numbered by Penguin Bodley Head will cost some 25,000 dollars, a singular first edition (1955) of the first volume in that series The Magician’s Nephew by Penguin Bodley Head is worth easily six-seven hundred UK pounds. (Over a thousand US dollars).
