208 Welty, Eudora THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM
Doubleday Doran 1942 First US Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket 
The dust jacket edges are jagged, especially at the spine ends - chipping, 1/4" tears, and rubbing. It is price clipped. The three other corners on the two flaps have have lightly trimmed - about 1/4 inch by 1 inch. There appears to be a pencil mark next to the "The" on the dust jacket front. The hardcover has rubbed and dented edges, especially at the top end. Light corner bumps. A crease can be seen on the attached front fly page. And on the back cover. The text pages are in good shape. They are clean with no odor of tobacco smoke. The binding is tight. A few of the pages have a tiny corner tip torn off. There is no writing or soiling. The pages are in much better shape than the dust jacket. In the text block top end you can see one water spot and two scuff spots. The scuffs have created minute dents on the page edges which they affect. The water spot has caused the colored ink to seep down about 1/32 of an inch. Barely noticeable. Despite all its flaws, this is a good solid copy of an uncommon book. ; 8vo

218 Wilde, Oscar THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY Together with Works by Bret Harte and Lafcadio Hearn
Lippincott Monthly Magazine 1890 First US Edition; First Printing Magazine Very Good with no dust jacket; Here printed for the first time in the July 1890 edition of Lippincott's Monthly Magazine. 100 pages, in 13 chapters. Wilde later added 6 more chapters to give us the edition generally reprinted today. But that is not the only wonderful item between these marbled covers. This is a bound edition of Lippincott's for May to August, 1890, with several other high spots. These include the complete Sappho of Green Springs by Bret Harte, from the May 1890 issue and a piece from that same issue titled Karma, by Lafcadio Hearn. Another illustrated piece on Palmistry, also called Cheiromancy. Each piece is separately paginated, as they were issued separately. The Picture of Dorian Gray was originally issued as a paperback by Lippincott's Monthly, and copies of the standalone volume are generally in very poor condition and still sell for $2000 or so. This copy is 9x6, bound in purplish half leather with gilt titles and marbled boards. Some age lines on the spine, but the leather is holding up very well. A couple of wonderful old rubber stamps from William V. Pippen, Dealer in Books, New & Old, 327 Charles St. , Baltimore, MD. In very good condition, almost impossible to find. 
8vo; The Philadelphia edition (simultaneous with the London edition) bound together with stories by Bret Hart (Sappho of Green Springs) and lafcadio Hearne (Karma) and Mrs. Alexander (What Gold Cannot Buy)
