Author / Artist:

Parker, Louis N.


London: Samuel French 1915


First acting edition, first printing. Inscribed presentation copy. Publisher's presentation binding by Bickers for the author. Three quarter vellum over brown buckram with titles in gilt to the spine. Marbled endpapers. Top edge gilt. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with some rubbing and several black (ink?) marks to the spine. The contents are entirely complete, and clean throughout.




Inscribed by the author in black ink on the front free endpaper "D[orothy] B. R[amsay] / from / L[ouis] N. P[arker] / Sept 21. 1916". The printed dedication reads simply "To Dorothy" although it is highly likely for the author's daughter Dorothy Parker who as an actress had a role in this original production.
