Item #21013 An Island Garden. Celia Thaxter.

An Island Garden

Boston: Houghton Mifflin & Co., 1895. Childe Hassam. Decorative Cloth. The 1895 1st edition, limited to 1,000 copies. In its lovely, gilt-decorated, light-green cloth. Solid and VG, with all of the Childe Hassam illustrations and illuminations --and their printed tissue-guards-- in place. A chip (with 1/4" of loss) at the spine crown and a 2nd chip (the size of a dime) along the lower-spine. Still though, in spite of this loss at the spine, a presentable copy. Octavo, top-edge gilt. An account of Thaxter's beautiful flower garden on Appledore Island, the largest of the Isles of Shoals, a chain of 9 small islands located about 7 miles off the Maine coast. Very Good. Item #21013

Price: $1,000.00
