William Lyon Phelps: Autobiography with Letters.
Phelps [1865-1943] was an author, critic, and scholar. In this detailed autobiography, which encompasses his whole life, family history, time as a Yale professor, studies at Harvard and Yale, etc, we learn to respect and esteem him. Oh, and he has a bit of a supernatural experience at the house where Jane Austen died in Winchester, so we must like him too. Blue cloth on boards, gilt title on spine, a bit of yellowing, previous owner's signature in front. Many b/w photographs, excellent index. Very good clean copy. OUP, London: 1939. USED. $9.00
