(GILMAN, Charlotte Perkins.) GRAHAME, Kenneth.
Dream Days.
New York & London: The Bodley Head,, 1899. Charlotte Perkins Gilman's copy Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and front cover in gilt, spine and front cover ruled in gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Spine sunned, rubbing to spine ends and tips, faint browning to board edges, touch of foxing to endpapers, a remarkably square and bright copy. First US edition. This copy is from the library of prominent American author and humanist Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935), with her ownership inscription, "Gilman", to the front free endpaper. A lovely association copy between two disparate yet key writers of the period; Grahame's The Reluctant Dragon, which is included in this collection, is often grouped with Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper (1890) in fantasy anthologies of the period (see Sandner & Weisman, The Treasury of the Fantastic). Dream Days, a sequel to Grahame's 1895 collection of short stories The Golden Age, was originally published in the UK in 1898. Both of these works were perennially popular in the US; Grahame received a letter from Theodore Roosevelt in June 1907 describing his admiration for them both and requesting autographed copies.See Sandner & Weisman, The Treasury of the Fantastic: Romanticism to early twentieth century literature (2001). [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: Peter Harrington [United Kingdom]
