Original Maxfield Parrish: The Knave Of Hearts, ~by Louise Sanders 1925:
Here we offer the first edition of one of the most gorgeous books ever produced, Louise Saunders's play,The Knave of Hearts, lavishly illustrated by the great American illustrator, Maxfield Parrish, featuring many of his most iconic paintings. This spiral soft-bound, large format (measures approximately 12.75 x 11.25-inches,) scarce edition was published by the Racine, Wisconsin Artists and Writers Guild in 1925. Today, most copies you will find are coming apart at the overly-tight spiral binding. This copy has been recently rebound so that it can be conveniently leafed through and enjoyed.
Original spiral binding has been removed and leaves have been attached to new acid-free leaf edges with ph-neutral binder's adhesive. New edges have large format staple and linen tape binding. Chipped heavyweight softcover is worn (please see pics;) light crayon marks to 5 of 36 pages and the last page of only text has been colored liberally (please see pics.) Various minor edge tears and two pages have minor tape repairs.
Priced at a low buy-it-now due to its condition, this wonderful book will make a bargain addition to your Parrish collection or a very special and thoughtful gift.
