I have two antiquarian books that may appeal to some of our readers.
First we have a rare volume of THE ADMIRABLE CRICHTON by J.M. Barrie:
THE ADMIRABLE CHRICHTON
Condition: Very Good
hardcover, Charles Scribner’s & Sons, 1920
Part of the Uniform Editions of the Plays of J.M. Barrie. 1st thus of the Scribner’s printing in 1920, copyright 1918 by Barrie. In very good condition with a tiny tear on the upper spine from shelving over the years. No DJ. Dark green boards with gilt lettering on cover, signs there had been the same on spine but spine lettering has faded to mere impressions over the years. Tight spine, clean crisp pages (deckled on edges). Incredible condition for this lovely slim volume from so many years ago.
$45.00 plus shipping. Can take PayPal but will need to add in their percentages. Can take credit/debit by phone (802-222-5826 – store open Tues-Sat. 10am-7pm ET). Or just drop by here in Bradford, VT!
For the scholars of early drama among you (I know I’m one!):
SPECIMENS OF PRE-SHAKESPEAREAN DRAMA
edited by John Mathers Manly
Condition: Good, hardcover, 1st ed., 1st printing. Ginn & Co., 1897, Boston, MA.
Atheneum Press series, vol. 1 of 2. Lovely card included that had clearly been a schoolboy note used as a bookmark inviting his friend to his room to meet his mother and sister, and “Miss Barker,” noting the dormitory hall and room number. Another hall, owner’s name, also inscribed on first page of book.
This is a lovely little edition in good condition with a tight spine, very clean pages, slight bumps on corners. Some wearing to boards on edges. Green boards with gilt lettering on cover; spine lettering clearly used to be gold but is now sun-faded. Incredibly good condition for its age and clearly had been read and used. No markings.
