Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin, (1896). First edition, later printing. Original green cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt. A presentation copy: "To Janet C. Lewis from Annie Fields" on the title, and three autograph letters, signed, and an autograph cut from another letter, pasted to the preliminary leaves. Three are dated in 1909, and one letter is undated. Mrs. Fields was the wife of publisher James T. Fields - this memoir is mostly about their lives together. Miss Lewis was a librarian and a book conservator/restorer in the Boston area - these letters, about six pages and perhaps 350 words altogether, mostly concern restoration work she did for Mrs. Fields and some mutual friends. Cloth worn, soiled, spine sunned - a fair copy. The letters are Very Good.
Title: Authors and Friends (with Autograph Letters).
