Saints and Their Stories.
London: Nisbet & Co. Ltd.,
This is the first book I know for sure I owned, because my nanny made a needle-work cover lined with silk for it and embroidered my name “John” on the upper cover. The book is thus in virtually perfect condition in the original dust jacket. How it survived my peripatetic life is miraculous, and I deem it today the rarest book I have ever owned. How many Grolier Club members still have their first book would be an interesting fact. As born bibliophiles, perhaps most of us!
