Zuleika Dobson
William Heinemann, Ltd, London, 1911 First edition, first impression, first issue binding.Octavo. Original smooth brown cloth, titles to spine gilt. Housed in a brown morocco fire box by the French Bindery, Garden City, New York.Hinges tender, but a very nice copy indeed. Inscribed by the author on the half title page, "by Max Beerbohm Rapallo, Italy 'Oxford! The very sound of the word spoken, or sight of it printed, is fraught for me with most actual magic.'" Laid in is a slip of paper, headed 'From the Rosenbach Collection' and with a typed description of this book beneath. This inscribed copy of Beerbohm's only novel - and probably his most enduring work - is one of just a tiny handful known. Mark Samuels Lasner reports having seen just the two other examples in his own collection.[127]
