1 Fuller, Henry B.Blake. The Chatelaine of La Trinite.

New York: Century Co., 1892. First edition (BAL 1892). Original pale green cloth, decorated in silver, red, and gilt, and blind, illustrated, top edge stained, others uncut, 176 pp. The binding was designed by Alice Cordelia Morse. Signed and inscribed by Fuller"Written Summer 1891 -", then he quotes his own words: " '...having seldom read a book that seemed too short.' p.67. Chicago. April 1900". Alice C. Morse was a prominent book cover designer in the late 1800's. She had worked at the Lewis Comfort Tiffany studios from 1885-1889 -- she is credited with designing at least 70 stained glass pieces during that time (Dubansky, Mindell. "Alice Cordelia Morse (18631961)". In Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History. New York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2000). Some finger soiling, spine rather darkened, some wear. The half title, which bears the inscription, is detached; rear endpapers beginning to crack; edges dust soiled. A Good copy, only.

2 Fuller, Henry B. Blake. The Chevalier of Pensieri-Vani.

New York: The Century Company, 1892. Second edition (BAL 6463). Original cloth, gilt, decorated in gilt. Though self-described as the fourth edition, this is the second edition, revised, of Fuller's first book. The first edition, 1890, was very popular, thanks partly to the fervent endorsement of Charles Eliot Norton, Professor of Fine Arts at Harvard and lifelong ltalophile. This edition is dedicated to Norton, with an extra chapter, "Siena, A Vain Abasement", added to please him. Light rubbing and dust soiling, a Very Good copy.

3 Blake, Henry B. Blake. The Chevalier of Pensieri-Vani. Together With Frequent References to the Prorege of Arcopia.

Boston: J.G. Cupples, (1890). First edition, second printing, the first with the author's true name on the title page. Original white half-leather, lettered and decorated in red and black, and batik boards in a love-bird pattern. This printing also noted in cloth and wrappers (Brick Row Book Shop, Catalogue 120, Pt. 1). A tall copy, 7 1/2 x 5 inches, likely a large paper, deluxe copy. Fuller's first book (BAL 6462). The first printing was reviewed enthusiastically by Charles Eliot Norton and James Russell Lowell. It was reprinted several times and a "new, revised" edition came out in 1892. A little wear, some darkening to boards, paper a little browned. A Very Good copy.

4 Fuller, Henry B.Blake. The Chevalier of Pensieri-Vani...".

Boston: J.G. Cupples, (1890). Stated second edition, this is the second printing, the first to bear the author's real name (see BAL 6462). Bound in half cloth, gilt lettered and decorated, and marbled paper boards, all edges sprinkled, top edge also stained; original pictorial wrappers bound in. The binding is likely to be from the publisher -- it is seen on at least one other copy: "This later printing (half cloth, marbled boards, wrappers bound in)....was issued in cloth and paper. The pictorial wrappers of the paper issue are bound in the cloth editions, as here; this binding appears to be publisher's." (Brick Row Book Shop, Catalogue 120, Part 1, 547). A presentation copy, Fuller quotes his own words: "...enamored only of that delightful land whose beauty age cannot wither and whose infinite variety custom can never stale.' p.168. For Miss Ethel Reardon, with kindest regards of Henry B. Fuller, Chicago, September, 1916." Laid in is a note in Fuller's hand: "Coises! This is the first edition -- only it's bound in boards, as well as in paper. H.B.F." Four leaves of ads bound in the back, including an ad for the first printing with the Stanton Page pseudonym, in paper or cloth. Some wear, a Very Good copy.
