[Beerbohm, Max- Rarity, the "Rough Cloth" Issue] Zuleika Dobson, or an Oxford Love Story

London: Heinemann, 1911.

First edition. Original "Rough Cloth Binding," Albert M. Cohn's Copy (bibliographer of George Cruikshank) with his bookplate on front paste down. Bound in 'rough' brown cloth with blindstamped design on cover, gilt lettering on spine. "The rough brown cloth and the smooth were issued simultaneously. Copies in the rough binding were sent to the circulating libraries because they found that smooth cloth was unsuited to the hard wear to which library book are subjected." (Muir Points, p.92). Beerbohm's first and only novel. Near fine copy, rear hinge cracked. Binding clean, fresh and bright. Housed in matching folder and 1/4 brown smooth morocco slipcase with gilt lettering. Extremely scarce thus.
