Price: 200.00 USD
Portland, Maine: The Southworth Press, 1933, First edition. Only printing (1/325 copies). 8vo, 62pp; including Index; green gilt-stamped boards. Original glassine wrapper. Glassine has various tears and nicks. The author explains in her Introduction that her work duplicates the existing (Melish) bibliography "in the collations of the American First Editions and in the list of Mrs. Wharton's contributions to books. And these are done according to an entirely different system..." She has added collations of English first editions as well as essays, poems and stories, "that have not been presented to the public in any collected form". Also included is a list of review, articles, appreciations, etc. The second step on the road to a complete bibliography of this major American author. A scarce book and even more so in this nice condition.
