(#158876) FAR FROM TODAY. Gertrude Hall.

FAR FROM TODAY. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1892. 12mo, pp. [1-2] [1-9] 10-291 [292: blank] [293-298: publisher's ads], flyleaves at front and rear, original light green cloth over dark green shelf back, front and spine panels stamped in gold, fore edge untrimmed. First edition. Collection of six short stories with vaguely medieval settings, generally treating the theme of thwarted love in a style that is exhaustively analytical of the state of mind of her characters: an uneasy mix of Henry James and William Morris. "Tristiane" concerns a female mind-reader. This seems to be scarcer than her other two collections, FOAM OF THE SEA and THE HUNDRED. Wright (III) 734. Spine ends and corner tips worn, cloth soiled and spotted, a good copy of an uncommon book. (#158876).

Price: $45.00
