a first edition Edith Wharton Twilight Sleep. Shhhh. I have a feeling the swapper didn't know what she was giving up and I'm halfway afraid that if I put the name of the swapping site on here someone will find out and come take this book away from me. Or maybe she just hates Edith Wharton.
I'm so excited about this book, which I'm sure you all realize is not a paperback, that I'm giving it to The Dot for her birthday which is Tuesday! Here's hoping she doesn't read The Blog before then.
By the way, my copy of Twilight Sleep is in even BETTER condition than this one that I stole from this site (because I'm too lazy to photograph my own copy plus it's already wrapped): First Editions and Antiquarian Books which sells it for $47. I'm not entirely sure my (Dot's) copy is a "fourth printing" so it might even be worth more!
So it's all good. I'm going back on and finding me some more first editions. Don't tell!
PS The Dot is taking four days off for her BIRTHDAY and the weather at Wellington is positively GORGEOUS. It's supposed to be nasty but it isn't. And there are nasturtiums absolutely everywhere. I'll count them and get back to you.
UPDATE The weather is intermittently non-gorgeous, but that's okay. It's still intermittently gorgeous and that's my second favorite.
