The Sacred Fount.
First UK edition, first impression, with the second issue ads dated August 1911. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “For the unknown friend, Henry James, Nov. 1911”. The Sacred Fount sold poorly at its original publication, but, encouraged by the success of The Outcry in 1911, the publisher bound and sold the remaining sheets of the earlier novel, with new ads dated to March and August of 1911.
Octavo. Original red cloth elaborately blocked in blind to the spine and upper board, titles to spine and upper board gilt. Very lightly rubbed at extremities, spine slightly dulled, contents lightly toned. An excellent copy.
