Woven in the Tapestry

New York: Moffat Yard, 1908. First Edition. Warmly INSCRIBED by the author in the year of publication: "Dear Mrs. Whitin / I promised you these so long ago you have probably forgotten. All the same I send them with my love / Emily Post / 107 E. 34th St. / March 1908." A rare inscription from the author.

Published fourteen years before her seminal 1922 book on etiquette earned Post a place in history, "Woven in the Tapestry" is a significant departure: an unusual period piece that brings together occult and historical themes, with a dash of philosophy thrown into the mix. Her third novel, and one of five that she would write before finding her way into nonfiction.

Very Good, in lightly toned paper-wrapped boards, lacking dust jacket as issued. Uncommon, especially to find inscribed.
