GREEN MANSIONS: A ROMANCE OF THE TROPICAL FOREST
London: Duckworth, 1904.. Gilt green cloth. Very minor handsoiling to the cloth, otherwise an unusually fine copy. Full morocco solander case (tips worn). First edition, the binding variant (traditionally presumed primary) without the blindstamped publisher's logo on the rear cover. A fine association copy, inscribed by the author: "Paul Fountain With best regards from W.H. Hudson. Feb. 3. 1904." The recipient was the author of THE GREAT DESERTS AND FORESTS OF NORTH AMERICA (1901), to which Hudson contributed an introduction. It has been claimed that the earliest presentation copy of this work is dated February 2nd, and other presentation copies to intimates bear inscriptions on the 4th, 5th, or are undated. The 1959 film adaptation, which hardly begins to do justice to the novel, was directed by Mel Ferrer, starred Audrey Hepburn, Anthony Hopkins, Sessue Hayakawa, et al. PAYNE A23a.
