1 Morley, Christopher Where The Blue Begins
Philadelphia Lippincott 1922 Cloth Rackham, Arthur 
Very Good in a Good dustjacket. Fully bound in blue cloth. The spine is stamped in dark blue. Tall quarto, x, 227pps., with 4 full-color plates and 16 line-drawings by Rackham. There is mild rubbing and bumping to the spine-ends and moderate dustspotting to the cloth. Internally, the pages are slightly and uniformly yellowed (the plates are still quite bright) and there is a small crease in the lower corner of the first two pages. Otherwise clean, tight, and square. No previous ownership markings. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has had its interior reinforced with tape; it has general, moderate edgewear with shallow chipping at the extremities and rubbing (with some splitting) at the flap-folds. A decent copy in the scarce dustjacket. ".Morley and Rackham! A combination calculated to bring delight to all those who appreciate artistic merit in any field. The Odyssey of Mr. Gissing has become an American classic. It is a sheer delight from cover to cover. Its whimsies sparkle and its satire is never bitter. Arthur Rackham is the one artist whose draughtmanship and scrollery can match the rare wonder of Christopher Morley's story. You will grow very fond of Mr. Gissing as Mr. Morley tells of him and as Mr. Rackham depicts him."
