GOODBYE TO SPRING
by Morley, Christopher
First edition, the very rare issue with the New York imprint. (Lyle & Brown p.30). To quote from the bibliography "Issued December 1937 with a first printing of 278 copies. Upon release from bindery it was discovered that the imprint read New York instead of Philadelphia as intended. With exception of 15 copies, the title page was removed and one reading Philadelphia was substituted by tipping in." This copy is inscribed by Morley "For Mildred from Chris - Dec. 24, 1937 - Hoboken -1928, NYC -1937." Glue migration along hinges, else very good copy of a rare book.
