        Dance Night

      Farrar and Rinehart, New York 1930 - First edition. Corner of the front fly a little torn, else a nice, near fine copy lacking the dustwrapper. A pleasing copy of the author's exceptionally uncommon fourth book, and considered the finest of her "Ohio" novels. Signed by the author: "Love, Dawn." Powell was a prolific and well-regarded author, but mostly forgotten until a relatively recent and well-deserved revival. For forty years she was a valued jewel of the New York literary world and if you read her books it's easy to see why. Rare, especially signed. See this book in 3D on our site.

        A Service / in Memory of / Alice Freeman Palmer + The Life of Alice Freeman Palmer + A Marriage Cycle + The Autobiography of a Philosopher

      1903, 1908, 1915, 1930 - A collectors set of FOUR BOOKS with inscriptions and laid in card. This is a collection of four books that sets forth in documents and the books themselves the life and the love shared by George Herbert Palmer and Alice Freeman Palmer. Often it recalls the great stories of the love between intellectuals from Aphasia and Pericles, through Abelard and Eloise, and beyond to Sartre and DeBeauvior, but all of this in a uniquely American nineteenth century style. These works and documents reflect the times and the great academics of Europe and America who came together in the so-called "Classical Age" of American philosophy. The collection begins with the death of Alice Freeman Palmer in 1902 and eventually we are taken forward to May 1945 when memories of the Palmers are slipping into the culture's unconsciousness. The remarkable book containing AFP's funeral service with the presentation card of GHP and the inlaid letter from a recently bereaved George Trumbull Ladd begins the telling of the story. Next is GHP's 1908 published biography of his wife which went through many editions and very many issues. The presentation copy here is very rare and contains an inscription to their favorite niece. The third text A Marriage Cycle published six years later contains the poems AFP asked GHP to burn literally during the last moments of her life. The Preface to the book contains his struggle with publishing them. Lastly GHP's 1930 Autobiography is inlaid with a series of letters to their friend Apatha Laughlin dated from before Alice's death to fifteen years after George's death. The editions, the inscriptions and the laid in materials make this a historically unique set of first editions.
