The Novels and Plays of Saki. Complete in - SAKI (pen name of H.H. Munro). (Thom - 1933. [1227800]
The Viking Press, New York 1933 - Stated "Second 'Omnibus' Volume." Rebound in blue half morocco gilt and papercovered boards, probably soon after publication. Spine expertly preserved, otherwise a nice near fine copy. This copy bears two identical examples of the armorial bookplate of Thomas Ruggles Pynchon (on both the pastedown and front fly), and was purchased by us some years back from a scout who purchased it at a tag sale at the author's parents' home. Presumably the bookplate was that of the author's father, also named Thomas Ruggles Pynchon. One could speculate at length about the effect of the spooky, fantastic tales of Saki on the young Pynchon, and indeed you are free to do so. We won't, but we are not above selling the book based on those conjectures. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
