About this Item

First Edition. Signed and Inscribed by H. P. Kraus to Elizabeth Mongan on the half-title: ÒTo Miss Elizabeth Morgan - With the compliments of H. P. Kraus.Ó Original green paper boards. Near fine. In his autobiography, A Rare Book Saga, Kraus tells of his 1941 visit to Lessing Rosenwald and of its successful outcome, one which convinced his future father-in-law that perhaps there was something to be said for the rare book business after all, leading to his marriage to Hanni. It would be natural for him to inscribe this copy to Rosenwald's curator and trusted adviser. 45 pp., followed by 8 plates. One of 300 copies. Dickinson, Hellmut Lehmann-Haupt, a bibliography, p. 17. Kraus is generally acknowledged as the greatest antiquarian bookseller in America after A.S.W. Rosenbach, and his autobiography, A Rare Book Saga, is one of the finest memoirs written by a rare bookseller. Bookseller Inventory # 12709J
