Rhys, Ernest and C[atherine] A[my] Dawson-Scott (editors).
29 LOVE STORIES OLD AND NEW BY TWENTY AND NINE AUTHORS.
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1925. Octavo, original black cloth, printed paper labels affixed to front and spine panels. First U.S. edition. One of the many anthologies that Rhys and Dawson-Scott edited, now rather uncommon. Sources range from the Arabian Nights to standard authors such as Henry James, de Maupassant, O. Henry and Lafcadio Hearn to obscure ones such as Austin Harrison, Edgell Rickwood, A. H. Hamer, etc. Dawson-Scott also wrote some supernatural fiction. A bit of rubbing to cloth at edges, spine label age-darkened, top edge of text block dusty, a sound, good to very good copy. (#112154).
