Tales from a Rolltop Desk

By Morley, Christopher

Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Page & Company. Very Good with no dust jacket; Boards moderately worn and sunned, pages . lightly toned.. 1921. First Edition. Hardcover. Cloth-backed printed boards. Printed paper spine label. Frontispiece illustration by Walter Jack Duncan. viii, 262 pp.A collection of witty short stories about writers, booksellers, journalists, and other literary types, including "The Curious Case of Kenelm Digby" about a bookseller who meets a terrible end. We believe the inscription on the front free endpaper is in Morley's handwriting: "If you want an inscription to this book, take the one over the doorway leading to the main reading room of the New York Public Library. If you want to find out who wrote that, go to Room 3, Goodrich Hall, Williams College where it will be found painted on the north wall." This literary treasure hunt likely refers to the John Milton quote from Areopagitica over the entrance to the Rose Main Reading Room of the New York Public Library's main branch, which reads: "A good Booke is the pretious lifeblood of a master spirit, embalm'd and treasur'd up on purpose to a life beyond life" [sic]. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .
