Description:
Houghton Mifflin Co, 1954. Hardcover. Very Good. Collectible first edition, first printing of Polish born author Alexandra Orme's debut novel, Paris Original, a tale of a poor receptionist at one of the greatest fashion houses in Paris mingling behind the scenes with world class designers. Bound in black cloth with pink lettering to front and spine panels. Pictorial dust jacket included with $3.50 price intact. Per Houghton Mifflin's practice of designating first editions, a date of publication (1954) is stated at the bottom of the title page. Precedes the 1955 UK first edition. Orme's first book, the non-fiction Come's the Comrade, was a huge success and a selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club, but her star soon faded, and Paris Original suffered through a small first printing and even smaller second printing. Thus its scarcity, especially in the original, stunningly fashionesque dust jacket. Includes 10 1/4" x 7" copy of original 1954 Birmingham News review printed on premium stock. Tight,… Read More

Description:
New York: Franklin Simon & Co, 1907. Wraps. Very good. Franklin Simon & Co. was a New York City department store specializing in women's fashions and furnishings. Founded in 1903 by Franklin Simon (1865-1934), the store was located at 414 Fifth Avenue at 38th Street, the former home of Mrs. Orme Wilson, sister of John Jacob Astor. It was the first big Fifth Avenue store above 34th Street. The store ultimately closed in 1977 following mergers and a bankruptcy. According to a 1932 Time magazine story, "success was chiefly due to women's clothes imported from France." The business specialized in goods imported from Europe and sold at the same price level as domestic products. Along with illustrations, this catalog includes prices for garments. For example, a "Two-Piece Dressy Gown, of imported washable Swiss, in black and white, light blue and white, pink and white, gray and white, green and white and violet and white effects, waist and skirt richly trimmed with Valenciennes lace, satin ribbon girdle… Read More
