Item #33262

An attractive early printing of Wharton's first regularly published book with C. Hartman Kuhn's ownership signature on the front free endpaper with his annotation "from Elsie." Would that we could state with certainty that "Elsie" is the legendary Elsie de Wolfe, but alas there is no corroborating evidence.
