GERTRUDE STEIN: A Bibliography. Gertrude Stein, Robert A. Wilson. GERTRUDE STEIN: A Bibliography.
Rockville, MD: Quill & Brush, 1994. First edition, completely updated from the 1976 edition. Descriptive bibliography illustrated with numerous photographs. The edition included 40 numbered copies signed by the bibliographer, Robert A. Wilson, in white paperboards with red leather spine lettered in gold, with an original photograph of Stein laid in; and 450 unsigned and unnumbered copies with cloth spine. The 40 numbered copies were sold long ago--but we've come across an unnumbered (out of series) SIGNED copy, with the photograph, but in the nicer binding of white paperboards with red leather spine lettered in gold and with photo of Stein on front cover. Corners a bit bumped but otherwise fine.

THE SNAKE'S PASS. Bram Stoker. THE SNAKE'S PASS.
London: Sampson Low, Marston, et al, 1891. First edition of STOKER'S FIRST NOVEL. An early copy, INSCRIBED JUST TWO DAYS AFTER PUBLICATION to "J. L. Toole / from his affectionate friend / Bram Stoker / 20.11.90." (The copyright date is 1891 but the actual date of publication was November 18, 1890.) English comic actor John Lawrence Toole was a friend of Stoker's and of Henry Irving's. It may seem unlikely now but during his lifetime Stoker was better known as Irving's personal assistant and as the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned. A testament to the friendship of the men can be found in the dedication to the first volume of Stoker's 1906 biography of Irving, PERSONAL REMINISCENCES OF HENRY IRVING, which reads "To the Memory of John Lawrence Toole Loving Comrade and True Friend of Henry Irving." SNAKE'S PASS is the only novel written by Stoker to be set in his native Ireland and is considered a clear precusor to his later works of horror, such as DRACULA. The story traces the troubled romance of traveler Arthur Severn and local peasant girl, Norah Joyce, against the backdrop of the re-telling of the legend of Saint Patrick's defeat of the King of the Snakes in Ireland. Spine faded, endpapers professionally mended at hinges and professional touch up to minor cover, altogether a very good copy which is free from foxing. Housed in a red-cloth clamshell box with gilt-lettered leather spine label. INSCRIBED TO A FRIEND JUST TWO DAYS AFTER PUBLICATION.
