STEPHENS, James. The Crock of Gold. London: Macmillan, 1912. Octavo, contemporary full green morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and covers, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $600.

First edition of James Stephens’ masterpiece, beautifully bound in full pictorial morocco-gilt by Bayntun Riviere.

The Crock of Gold, with its rich Celtic theme, established Stephens’ fame; his astringent, ironic style has invited comparisons with his friend, James Joyce. With original cloth bound in at rear.
