1 Parrish, Anne All Kneeling
New York Harper & Brothers 1928 NO First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good dj 
[book lightly shelfworn, dust-soiling to top page edges; jacket worn along bottom edge, shallow chipping at spine ends (no loss of text) and along bottom of rear panel, small tears at most corners, considerable age-browning to entire jacket although externally visible only at rear panel and flap edges] The story of a beautiful young author, a woman with "a sweet, sensitive soul that responded to the beauties of nature and poured itself out in lyric poetry. All who came into contact with her were captivated by her charm. No one suspected that beneath this spiritual sensitivity lay deliberate strategy and that her every movement was prompted by a selfish aim." Hm. Sounds like this dame was, well, Born to Be Bad -- which, by an amazing coincidence, was the name of the movie that Nicholas Ray made from this book in 1950, with Joan Fontaine and Robert Ryan. (Laid in to this copy is an interesting piece of related ephemera: a bookmark announcing the book as that month's "BookSelection," chosen by an editorial committee of the American Booksellers Association.)

2 Parrish, Anne Loads of Love
New York Harper & Brothers 1932 NO First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dj 
[ex-rental library book, minimally marked (single stamp on ffep, pencilled list of dates on rear pastedown), spine slightly turned, moderate shelfwear; jacket has tiny tears at a few corners, slight fading to spine, minor soiling to rear panel, one-inch split at top rear hinge]. "Here [the author] tells the story of Edward, a young and aspiring novelist, whose mother guides him in everything, and wards off the World so that he may have peace and quiet in which to fully exercise his genius. Into his life comes Cousin Bessie, whose unbounded enthusiasm and desire to help others at all costs change Edward's life radically." The author was a cousin of illustrator Maxwell Parrish, and wrote a number of popular novels and children's books (a couple of the latter in collaboration with her brother Dillwyn Parrish), primarily in the 1920s and 1930s.
