Posthumously printed short stories from a popular author, with => music figuring prominently in several of the pieces. This is the stated fourth printing of the first edition, with a color-printed frontispiece and four additional plates done by Dalton Stevens.
        Binding: Publisher's lavender cloth, front cover with lily design stamped in gilt, white, and purple, spine with decorative gilt-stamped title. Top edges gilt, others deckle. => Signed "MA," Margaret Armstrong.
        This is one of a series of twelve of Reed's books for which Armstrong did the designs, all on the same lavender cloth. The Reed covers are among her best-known, and this one is quite pleasing with its lily-petal mosaic effect.

Bound as above, minimal rubbing to extremities and stamped lilies, minor sunning to spine; front cover clean and bright. Plates with small areas of spotting to upper edges, apparently from printer. => A very nice copy.  (41298)   Please RESHELVE This.
