Meynell, Alice  
THE COLOUR OF LIFE

Publisher: London: John Lane [Bodley Head] Chicago: Way and Williams Chicago Illinois, USA 1896.
Coarse-textured light brown cloth hardcover with gilt stamped spine titles, deckled edges. 101 pages plus colophon, plus 2+2 [reviews of previous books by the author] plus 16 [full page illustration of John Lane's Bodley Head shop, plus book ads]. A collection of essays on nature, art, and the status of women. This is a handsome and interesting volume, with both the English and American publishers indicated on the title page. In addition, the colophon indicates printing by W.H. White and Co., Ltd, Edinburgh Riverside Press. Affixed (upside down) to the rear paste-down is a label for the Revere Memorial Library, Isle Au Haut, Maine - apparently a free lending library with hours on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. (There are no library stamps, checkout slips, or anything else by way of library marks.) Overall the book is remarkably clean, gilt bright and cover clean and unstained except for a couple of subtle marks on rear cover. Lower corners rubbed, very light rubbing on spine edges and ends. The endpaper pastedowns are speckled from glue tranfer, which has offset to the free endpapers, and the internal paper has toned around the edges in a mellow manner. All in all a pleasing little book in the hand, and the prose ain't bad either.

Firbank, Ronald  
The Works of Ronald Firbank Volumes I-V of 5

Publisher: London: Duckworth, 1929 limited special first collected edition. No. 140 of 235 copies..
original yellow buckram cloth octavos w/gilt spine titles. Vol. I: Introduction by Arthur Waley; Biographical Memoir by Osbert Sitwell; frontispiece portrait sketch of Firbank by Augustus John; contains "Vainglory." ix, 234pp. condition: spine strip is darkened; yellow cover cloth is somewhat age darkened with a few brown age spots & a smudge or two; some foxing of endpp; else a Very Good copy with untroubled text. Vol. II: frontispiece portrait sketch of Firbank by Wyndham Lewis; contains "Odette," "Inclinations" and "Caprice." 248pp. condition: spine strip is darkened; yellow cover cloth is somewhat age darkened with a few brown age spots & a smudge or two; some foxing of endpp; small tear @ fore edge margin of last page; else a Very Good copy with untroubled text. Vol. III: frontispiece portrait sketch of Firbank by Augustus John; contains "Valmouth" and "The Princess Zoubaroff." 212pp. condition: very small tear in cloth @ spine head; touch of age darkening of yellow cloth; touch of endpp. foxing; couple of lightly bent corners; else a Very Good copy with untroubled text [in remnant of plain paper dust wrapper]. Vol. IV: frontispiece colored portrait sketch of Firbank by Charles Shannon; contains "Santal" and "The Flower Beneath the Foot." 168pp. condition: spine strip is darkened; yellow cover cloth is somewhat age darkened with brown age spots & smudging; else a Very Good copy with untroubled text. Vol. V: frontispiece portrait sketch of Firbank by Augustus John; contains "Prancing Nigger" and "Concerning the Eccentricities of Cardinal Pirelli." 152pp. condition: spine strip is darkened; yellow cover cloth is somewhat age darkened with a few brown age spots; some foxing of endpp; else a Very Good copy with untroubled text. The high quality Abbey Mills paper accounts for the lack of foxing in the text. Although 235 numbered copies were printed by The Westminster Press, only 200 were offered for sale. The original dates of publication of the Works were as follows: Vainglory (1915), Inclinations (1916), Odette (1916), Caprice (1917), Valmouth (1919), The Princess Zoubaroff (1920), Santal (1921), The Flower Beneath the Foot (1923), Sorrow in Sunlight [Prancing Nigger was the American title, issued by Brentano and adopted here] (1925) and Concerning the Eccentricities of Cardinal Pirelli (1926). A Study in Temperament, printed in the same volume as "Odette d'Antrevernes" in 1905 is omitted from this edition by the author's expressed wish (just as well perhaps owing to the jejune nature of this work, but it might have been useful for the record to have had it included). The Cambridge educated Firbank (1886-1926), dilettante son of wealthy parents, has been described as "a subterranean link between Oscar Wilde and Ivy Compton-Burnett." Although considered a minor novelist in his time, his novels are works of art and artifice and have influenced many writers in the latter half of the 20th century.
