The Lover's Baedeker and Guide to Arcady. New York: Frederick A. Stokes Co., (1912).

First Edition. Illustrations, front cover and dustjacket art by A. D. Blashfield and Maps by George Hood. Fantasy title missed by Bleiler in the format of a 'Baedeker Guide' for the "city of Arcady in the kingdom of Arcadia, which is inhabited entirely by a strange but interesting race known as Lovers. After describing how it is to be reached by the Joy Line across the Sea of Dreams in transports of rapture, she tells of its topography, its climate, time, custom-house regulations, flowers..." Scarce and unusual title by the well known mystery author to be found in original illustrated dustjacket. Very Good plus, some shelf wear to corners, in Very Good dustjacket, tiny chips at spine ends and flap corners, spine darkening, light stain to spine visible primarily at verso.

Price: $225.00
