Wharton, Edith. CERTAIN PEOPLE. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1930. Hardcover First Edition

First printing. A later and relatively uncommon book by Wharton (even though it had multiple printings.) A collection of six short stories, one which ranks among Wharton's better works, including Atrophy, A Bottle of Perrier, After Holbein, and Mr. Jones. 232 pp. Very good in smooth dark blue cloth with gilt lettering and decorative band, lacking the dj. (rubbing to the lettering on the spine, although it is still legible, few spots of foxing on top edge of textblock, discoloration to gutter on the endpapers, probably due to the binder's glue.) .
