Item Details
Description
  • Title: The Following of the Star by Barclay, Florence L. Vintage 1911, 1st Ed.
  • Additional Information: Up for auction is the vintage book "The Following of the Star" by Florence L. Barclay, published in 1911, 1st Ed., American issue. Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York and London. Book has purple cloth stamped in gilt on cover and on spine. Binding is somewhat sun faded on spine; front and back covers look very good & are still brightly colored. Top and bottom of spine slightly bent in but not damaged or torn. Corners not bumped, book very tight, bright and clean. No writing inside or out; very small stamp on inside of front cover on bottom - about 1/4" x 1/2" - says "Flosser & Co. Brooklyn Book Store" - barely legible without magnification. 426 pgs. with publisher's advertising at end of book.
    Florence Louisa Barclay (1862 - 1921) was an English romance novelist & writer of short stories born in Ssurrey, England. She wrote ten novels in all, and one of them "The Mistress of Shenstone" was made into a silent film in 1921.
    Legend has it that Florence finished writing "The Following of the Star" at the graveside of Elizabeth Barrett Browning. She also wrote "The Rosary" (1909), a love story extolling the benefits of married bliss, which was a theme she used in her later writings with great success.
    This book is in fantastic condition given that it is over 100 years old with only minor imperfections. The book is also nice looking with a very interesting, flowery type face printed in gilt on the cover and spine, and decorative designs embossed into the cover and spine. A very attractive addition to any collection!
