1 Mavity, Nancy Barr A Dinner of Herbs
New York Thomas Seltzer 1923 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
First book by the author of the Peter Piper detective novels. First third of book are poems dedicated to her just born daughter. From the introduction: "This Little Book for Nancy - as at first I meant to call it- was born of the desire, egotistical enough, that she might not only savor the beauty and the pain, the enduring loveliness and the exquisite fragility of the world in her own person, but that she might also one day hear a voice speaking to her of days that will then be old, speaking with the present freshness of experience caught, as it were, on the wing." Outside book covers dampstained, with some bleeding and fading. Dustjacket also dampstained with some bleeding of the green bookcover onto the dustjacket. Also, some chips to the dustjacket.
