About this Item

Octavo. Frontispiece, plates, and illustrations in text by A.D. M'Cormick. (Some minor intermittent pale spotting.) Original decorated cloth, the front cover with a block of a ship executed in black and gilt, gilt-lettered on spine, top edges gilt (slightest toning). Provenance: Charles MacA. Willcox (bookplate), Denver banker and bookman. FIRST EDITION, WITH A TWO-PAGE AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED by Hudson tipped to the front free endpaper, 16 November [1912?], to "Dear Curle," thanking him for sending a George Meredith book, arranging a meeting, and telling him he may keep the copy of English Reviews that was loaned. This is presumably Richard Curle (1883-1963), Scottish author, traveler, and bibliophile who wrote the earliest critical and biographical wok on Joseph Conrad. 'A Little Boy Lost' is a mystical story about the thrills of nature as seen by a little boy who wanders through the plains, the high Sierras and along the seashore. Animals and mirages take human shape and the spirits of the Rockies and the ocean lure him on. Bookseller Inventory # 104032
