xiii+380 pages with facsimile letter. Octavo (8 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in original publisher's red cloth with green paper label on spine and cover with white lettering in original pictorial jacket.. First American edition.
Graves first came across the name of Sergeant Roger Lamb in 1914, when, as a young officer in the Royal Welch Fusilier, he was instructing his plantoon in regimental history. Though obviously one of the outstanding soldiers of the period, detail information abut Lamb was scarce in England; the letter reporduced on page v was, as a matter of fact, the only one to be found in Lamb's own hand. Twenty-five years later Graves came to live in Princeton, New Jersey, for a time. He had not forgotten Lamb; and what place could be more appropriate to further research than the town where Washington's defeat of the Hessian Division of the British Arm was a proud tradition? Graves went to work, got the material he wanted, returned to England, and mailed his manuscript to Random House.

Description:
v+321 pages. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's black cloth with gilt lettering to cover and spine. First British edition. St. Ives: Being The Adventures of a French Prisoner in England (1897) is an unfinished novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was completed in 1898 by Arthur Quiller-Couch. Unable to write, Stevenson dictated thirty chapters of the novel to his stepdaughter as a diversion from his debilitating illness. He alternated dictating St. Ives and The Weir of Hermiston but gradually lost interest in the former. The plot concerns the adventures of the dashing Capitaine Jacques St. Ives, a Napoleonic soldier, after his capture by the British. Condition: Corners bumped and rubbed, shelf wear, hinges and spine heal moderately rubbed, previous owner's name on front end paper else a very good copy.
