Book Condition: Near Fine
Edition: 1st Edition
Barrie, J[ames[. M[atthew]. AULD LICHT IDYLLS. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1888. First Edition. A NEAR FINE copy with spine gilt which looks almost as new but with some minor abrasions (as almost always) to the blue buckram boards. A nice, fresh example of the author's first novel, written 14 years before he achieved literary immortality with the creation of Peter Pan. This book's sentimental visitation of Scottish eccentricity (the Auld Lichts were a strict religious sect to which Barrie's father belonged) and Scottish lore and locale made him an instant success. Complete with 2pp. of ads, upon which a previous owner has penciled its timely date of acquisition: Oct. 1929. Housed in a tidy quarter-morocco slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 001535
