Dodd, 1901. Item #1310
Dunbar, Paul Laurence. CANDLE-LIGHTIN' TIME. NY: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1901. Tall 8vo., dark-green cloth stamped in white, black, brown & gilt; 127 pages. First Edition. State A of the title page, with the title page printed in red & black (a deposit copy noted thus but it does not appear to be a scarce issue). Ink inscription on the front endpaper: "When this you see remember me, Theo. W. McKnight, Christmas, 1901. To Harriet M. Claxton [?], 3410 Baring Street, Philadelphia." Harriet Claxton was the third wife of Robert Bethell Claxton, a West Philadelphia pastor who once owned the Second Empire-style house at 3410 Baring Street, which is now a registered historic building. Harriet was the daughter of Theodore W. McKnight, so I assume the presenter is a relative. Very Good (covers nice & bright, contents clean & tight). A nice copy! $150.00 (1310) BLACK.
