1855.

Price: $3,500.00

Softcover. Holograph Manuscript. Octavo. 42, (2)pp. Ribbon-tied wrappers. Foredge gilt. Beautifully written in blue ink with decorated initials rubricated. Small chips to the edges of the wrappers, a pleasing very good or better manuscript. A fairy tale in both prose and verse. Fair knight Jòan goes on a long journey looking for truth and a princess, shadowed by fairies. The fairies dose him with poppies, give him sweet dreams, and intimate that he shall find "thy silver dove," the Princess Alethia. Apparently unpublished, the manuscript is accompanied by a 1936 letter from the Library of Congress Copyright Office, replying to an inquiry and stating that the title is not recorded. Additionally none of the word combinations in the title reveal published works in *OCLC* or other comparable sources. A beautifully rendered complete and unpublished 19th Century fairy story.
