Lady Gay                                 Mrs. Palmer in later life

Lady Gay, BY Mrs. George Archibald (pseudonym of Anna Campbell Palmer)

             Lothrop, 1898

Also known in dull gray and bright yellow (see below). Most sources give Lothrop as the publisher, but some spines and DJ's indicate that it is Lothrop, Lee and Shepard.  (?)  This appears to be one of the scarcest Sacker covers; Only Columbia University and Millersville University (PA) appear to own copies. The rare signed dust jacket is also shown, at the bottom of the page.  

(My sincere thanks to Rachel Dworkin, of the Chemung Valley (NY) Historical Society, for the photo of Mrs. Archibald/Palmer.)

            Lady Gay--upside down flowers

                                                                                               Curiously, the flowers on the spine appear to be upside down here, though it's hard to notice at first!!
