Cunliffe-Owen, Marguerite.  Emerald and Ermine: a tale of the Argoät. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1907. 8vo (21.3 cm, 8.375"). 3–328, [1] pp.
$18.75

"It was mellow October weather in a deep green forest of the Argoät — where forests are deepest and greenest, and October days, when not veiled by warm showers of fine rain, mellower than anywhere else in the world." This tale by Marguerite Cunliffe-Owen, historical novelist, nonfiction writer, and poison-penned syndicated newspaper columnist, is => illustrated by four color plates of her watercolor drawings, including a frontispiece.
        Before her emigration to America (caused by ruined fortunes in Europe), Margaret was the Countess Marguerite, daughter of Count Jules du Planty de Sourdis; she was most commonly known as La Marquise de Fontenoy or the Countess du Planty. The poems interspersed throughout this work and signed "M.M." are by Edward Forrester Sutton.
        Binding: Publisher's green cloth with gilt and white-stamped lettering and decorations including the titular emerald and ermine. Top edge gilt; fore-edge and bottom edge deckled.

Bound as above, pretty binding bright and clean. Romantic interior clean. => An attractive production in lovely condition.  (37493)   Please RESHELVE This.
