1 Shipman, Natalie & Worcester, Curdon Saltonstall Perchance To Dream
New York Prentice-Hall 1946 First Edition, First Printing 
Very Good in a Good dustjacket. Fully bound in beige cloth. The spine is stamped in red. 217pp. Faint spotting on the perimeters of the boards and to the top of the textblock. The spine-ends are bumped. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The pages are in excellent shape. The dustjacket is largely intact but has considerable wear along the edges; the original price of $2.50 remains on the front flap.

'...Tells with sympathy and deep understanding of motive the story of a woman in danger of becoming an alcoholic and the solution of her problem. Perchance To Dream points less to the nature of her weakness and its effect on Elly Landon than to its initial causes, the basic reasons for her desire to escape. With subtlety and deep perception of character, the author's build the story of Elly's effort to please her austere, scholarly father with academic brilliance, to be as fascinating as her beautiful and glamorous stepsister, Margot, to earn her husband's love and trust -- and ultimately to escape herself and her own feeling of inadequacy and lonliness...'
