The venetian glass nephew

New York: George H. Doran, 1925. First trade edition, 8vo, pp. viii, [3], 10-182; publisher's green cloth gilt, boards lightly rubbed and toned, spine extremities cracked and spine a bit dull, texblock sound. Inscribed by Wylie to fellow writer Maxwell Bodenheim on free endpaper. By the end of his life Bodenheim was more well known for his erratic and alienating behavior than for his writing. All we could find concerning his relationship with Wylie was that "his personal habits were so filthy that at the MacDowell writers' colony Elinor Wylie refused to sleep in the same bed Bodenheim had occupied." (Republic of Dreams). BAL 23505. Item #55077
