Description:
London: Chatto & Windus, 1941.. Gilt cloth. Spine cocked, binding a bit darkened and handsoiled, a few spots to the top edge with a bit of bleed to the top edge of the front endsheets, some light foxing and creasing to a few corners, but a good copy, without dust jacket. First edition. An association copy of a high order, inscribed by the author on the front free endsheet to his contemporary, friend and fellow "Bright Young Thing," Cecil Beaton: "To my dear friend Cecil, the brilliant perpetuator of Paquita Gossamer's charms (see p. 288) with much love from Harold." The reference on p.288 is to a film star and hostess of late-night parties on the roof of the Peiping Palace Hotel, who has promised Freddie Follicle, social editor of the Peiping Star Bulletin, "an autographed 'study' of herself in SEMIRAMIS by Cecil Beaton." A few smudges on that page suggest that Beaton turned to it more than once. The first impression consisted of 1250 copies. RITCHIE A11a.

Description:
Boston: Printed at the Riverside Press for the Massachusetts Historical Society, 1918.. Small quarto. Full dark blue-green crushed morocco, raised bands, gilt extra, gilt inner dentelles, t.e.g. by Riviere & Son. Portrait frontis. Gilt initials 'E.O.A." in center of upper board, spine a shade sunned, upper joint cracking slightly at tips, but a very good copy. First printing of the first public edition, one of an issue suggested to have consisted of approximately 250 copies bearing the imprint for Mass Historical. The text is offered as 'edited' by Henry Cabot Lodge, and the Preface is attributed to him; BAL mirrors scholarship in noting that Adams was the actual author of the Preface, and the editor omitted none of the original text. The binding on this copy is, of course, an exception. The Mass. Historical copies were bound in a fashion almost identical to the Houghton Mifflin copies, except without the publisher's spine imprint. BAL 39. REESE (NARRATIVES) 2.
