About this Item

Original olive green cloth blocked in red and copper, lightly rubbed, a very good copy. Frontispiece portrait of the author after a painting by H. de T. Glazebrook. Inscribed by the author "To Henry James in the hopes that he will read it from Frances Harrod. And send her a little word? After all she is a failure!" A scarce title, (two copies in the U.S. according to OCLC).Frances "Frankie" Harrod, née Forbes-Robertson (1866-1956) was the sister of the great Shakesperean actor and theatre manager Johnston Forbes-Robertson. She was trained at the Royal Academy and at the Slade School under Frank Brangwyn. She gave James a copy of her 1902 novel "Mother Earth," (Edel and Tintner, p. 37). She was a close friend of both James and Oscar Wilde, who gave her as a wedding present one of the twelve japan vellum copies of "The Importance of Being Earnest," and she was the mother of the economist Sir Roy Harrod.
