14 None A Choice of Manuscripts and Bookbindings from the Library of Isabella Stewart Gardner, Fenway Court
Boston MA Merrymount Press 1922 Second Edition Hardcover Very Good to Near-Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
104 pages. Although not the first edition to catalogue Mrs. Gardner's books, this is nonetheless invaluable for its descriptions, and Updike was presumably better pleased with this one anyway, which is a fine example of his and Merrymount's skills. 102 pages (some of which are uncut). No visual data, but highly detailed verbal descriptions including measurements. Corners are bumped a bit, the edges are lightly worn, and there is slight fraying and splitting to the spine head, but the spine label is intact. In all, condition is Very Good to near-Fine.
