Collecting Crapsey continued
I bought a first edition copy (not sure if it was ever reprinted) of Mary Elizabeth Osborn's Adelaide Crapsey from ebay. This biography is from 1933 and is something I have wanted to read for a very long time. Definitely a score, as it is one of the few better known collectibles associated with Crapsey. It has a tight binding, complete pages, includes the dust jacket (wrapped in a preservative sleeve, like they do at libraries), and is even signed by the author. Some pages have tears on the edges, and the dust jacket has some missing bits around the edges, but overall it is in great shape. At $30 plus 3.50 shipping, it is a most welcome addition to my Crapsey collection.
