Item description

In The Bishop's Carriage (Hardcover) by Miriam Michelson Book Description: Grosset Dunlap, Publishers, New York, 1904. The title-page notes Harrison Fisher as the illustrator and the copyright page date is 1904, but this is clearly a "Broadway" reissue, with coated stock inserted plates from production photos of the stage adaptation by Channing Pollock and starring Jessie Busley. The play evidently showed out of town as early as 1905 and played the Grand Opera House in NYC for one month in 1907. Though the novel had been a great success, the play, alas, was not; frontispiece of Miss Jessie Busley, Now Playing "Nance" in "In the Bishop's Carriage." illustration by Harrison Fisher. The story of a college aged woman. Michelson, a successful writer and turn-of-the-century novelist, published works for over 40 years. The book begins: When the thing was at its hottest, I bolted. Tom, like the darling he is-(Yes, you are, old fellow, you're as precious to me as-as you are to the police-if they could only get their hands on you)-well, Tom drew off the crowd, having passed the old gentleman's watch to me, and I made for the women's rooms. 280 pages to this vintage work with floral cover designs. Brownish red boards with embossed design in black and cream. Mild edge wear/bumping, but overall clean and tight. Pages yellowed. Front hinge is cracked. NO Dust Jacket. Gutter crack [inside front]. Front of red cover decorated with embossed black and white basket and flowers--some rubbing of white outline at top. 2 b/w photos from the stage production (frontispiece portrait of actress Jessie Busley). Although the illustrator is noted as Harrison Fisher, this is the photoplay edition, with several scenes from the Broadway play staring Miss Jessie Busley as Nance. An internet database notes that this play was on Broadway in 1907, placing this issue later than the copyright date of 1904, but still "in the period".
