Told after Supper.

JEROME Jerome K. (1891.)

£475.00  [First Edition]

Available to view at our Curzon Street shop.

With "96 or 97" illustrations by Kenneth Skeaping. First edition. Square 8vo., most attractively printed in blue, original red cloth printed in black, t.e.g., others uncut. London, the Leadenhall Press.

Spine just a little faded, but a very good copy, with a small inkstain at the lower edge of a couple of leaves. The copy of the literary agent A.P. Watt, boldly signed by the author on the title-page, and with Watt's pencil note on the front free endpaper: "A suppressed vol. of J.K. Jerome's. A.P.W." If this had been suppressed, it must rank as the least succesful suppression in literary history, since the book is far from rare unsigned, although it seldom turns up in decent state.
