Pictures of the Floating World
Tipped to the half title page on Miss A. Lowell letterhead is a typed note SIGNED by Amy Lowell. The volume, quarter bound with orange cloth and dark green paper over boards is lightly edge rubbed with bump[ed spine ends. There is some waviness to the cloth on the front panel, although no evidence of contact with water. There is a light abrasion near the top of the front endpaper (it appears that at some point the letter was tipped in here and its removal caused the roughness) and a bookplate of California bibliophile Melba Berry Bennett is affixed to the front pastedown. The dust jacket is a linen type material of heavy stock and is gilt stamped on the spine. The jacket is trimmed on all four corners, lightly sunned on the spine and has a small stain on the lower half or the spine. Bookseller Inventory # 16032114

Store Description: Trilby & Co. Books is located in Northern California. The company was founded years ago by a Shetland Sheepdog named Trilby. Trilby's message to her family was brief and direct - the sale of books would increase disposable income and improve the quality of provisions in her food dish. My name is McTavish (picture at left). I am the current CEO of this company, and I approve of her message. Oh, by the way, my speciality is literature, with an emphasis on first editions and signed books.
