The Little Dream: An Allegory in Six Scenes [Rare Wrappered First Edition and Scarce Hardcover First Edition]

London: Duckworth and Co., 1911. First Edition, First Printing. Wrappered First TOGETHER WITH Hardcover First. A Very Good + copy of the First Edition, first printing in the RARE PUBLISHER'S ORIGINAL WRAPPERS (some rubbing with loss to the spine panel, prior owner's name dated 1911 on the front free endpaper), being a Play by John Galsworthy, housed in a custom foldover case with the Title and Author name in gilt to the case's spine, TOGETHER WITH the hardcover copy of the same Play with some rubbing to the spine ends and leading board corners. The Play is a work of fantasy presenting the dream of a peasant girl of the Alps who has two admirers, one a Swiss guide and the other a stranger from London who wants to take her to the big city. John Galsworthy won the 1932 Nobel Prize in Literature (then died in the following January). The wrappered first edition is, in our experience, EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE. The hardcover copy is not dated by the Publisher but references the same prior Galsworthy titles as are noted in the wrapped first and, as noted above, by the prior owner on its front free endpaper. The hardcover copy is quite scarce to the market and the wrappered first is EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE. Very good +. Item #2690
