AMENITIES OF BOOK-COLLECTING AND KINDRED AFFECTIONS
by Newton, A. Edward
First edition, with errata slip tipped-in at page 268 (Fleck A. 4.A.1a.1). The jacket appears in two states; the first has no printing on the covers except for the spine while the second has printing on the front cover. This is a copy of the first state. This was the first book in a series of books written by Newton on book-collecting and remains a classic book in its field. This copy bears the following inscription on the front free endpaper "To Anna Gable Ford, with love and Christmas greetings from her father, William F. Gable, Altoona, Pennsylvania, Dec. 25th, 1918. See McKay 8643 for the sale of William Gable's library in 1923. Gable (1856-1921) was a noted collector and merchant. The front cover of the jacket is signed "Anna Katharine" in ink at the top edge. Jacket worn with tears and the bottom of the spine lacking. Extremely scarce in this first state jacket.
