ML 24, Ouida In a Winter City

Sun Mar 16 18:30:20 EST 2003

I've never seen a Ouida in an ML Inc. binding. My copy is a first printing 
with the standard "BL" logo on the spine of the DJ and the title page. I have 
never seen one with a cowled monk device either. Of course, jacketed copies 
are so rare I'm not sure that means a lot.

<< Does anyone have Ouida, In a Winter City in a ML, Inc. binding (#4) or 
jacket (Jacket 2 or 3)?
 In a Winter City was published by Boni & Liveright in 1923 and discontinued 
by Cerf and Klopfer at the end of 1926.  I'm pretty sure Cerf and Klopfer 
never made a printing of their own.  (Let me know if you have a copy with a 
ML, Inc. title page with the Bernhard torchbearer!)  
 I have seen B&L copies in ML, Inc. binding 4.  Most of the B&L stock Cerf 
and Klopfer inherited was unbound; they sold these copies in their own 
bindings (binding #4) and usually their own jackets (jacket #2 or 3).  
 I've never seen In a Winter City in the ML, Inc. jacket (#2 or 3) and would 
be grateful to know if anyone has one.
 I don't think B&L ever published In a Winter City with the monk device on 
the title page.  Again, if you have one, please let me know!
