1 JAMES, HENRY The Tragic Muse
London Macmillan 1890 
First Edition - British. Three volumes. Printed in the small edition of 500 copies. Original gilt-stamped blue cloth with coated black endpapers intact. Skillfully rebacked with the original cloth laid down, a very good set. Laid in is a short Autograph Letter Signed by the author, Henry James, agreeing to appear a social function. Undated, the letter is written on printed stationery of 34 De Vere Gardens, W., “Dear Mrs. Sands. I will come in if possible at 6:15. Yours ever, Henry James. Monday.” Henry James's rare last triple decker and the last important triple decker to be published by an American author. The work is James's intimate view of theatrical life in 1890s London a world in which James was unsuccessful with his own plays but provided the background and intimacy for one of his great novels.
