Morley, Christopher. Ex Libris Carissimis. Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1932, first U.S. edition. Hardcover with dust jacket, decorative paper over black cloth spine and gilt spine titles, 14.5 by 25.8 cm, x 134 pp. Inscribed and signed on the ffep: “Ex Libris Robert Wilson – / Christopher Morley / 1936.” Very good with one small drip mark on the fore edge of the textblock. The jacket has sun darkening on the spine and chips and small tears on the edges (especially the head and tail of the spine panel). From the front flap: “The theme of these charming, informal talks on book collecting is (to quote the author) the inextricable interweaving of life and literature.’ The book is made up largely of symbolic anecdotes which cannot fail to inform and delight all who seek in literature ‘the lighter air of the mountain peaks of human life.’” We ship our books in boxes or cardboard wraps, never in bags. Bay Leaf Books (Member ABAA, ILAB, IOBA) is an open shop dedicated to offering fine books for discriminating readers. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
