MENCKENIANA: A Schrimpflexikon. H. L. Mencken, Alfred A. Knopf. MENCKENIANA: A Schrimpflexikon.
New York: Knopf, 1928. First edition. As Knopf says in the preface, this is not an exhaustive collection. Still, he tried to make it representative.

Some minor cover wear and pages leaning a bit, but still very good, lacking dust jacket.

London: Chapman & Hall, 1856. First edition of his first novel. Meredith, known chiefly as a Victorian novelist and poet, is considered important in the evolution from Victorian to modernist novels, for his narrative technique and development of female characters.

Corners and spine ends show wear but spine lettering is very bright; altogether a very good, tight copy.
