First Printing. From the recently auctioned collection of the Goldstone brothers--this one from M.B. Goldstone--with his custom gold bookplate lightly attached to the front pastedown and his small penciled signature to the top corner of the ffep. A handsome fine copy in red cloth boards with paper label to the spine. This copy is signed by Johnston on the free endpaper after the title and copyright page. An early work and quite successful--although not even close to the success of "To Have and To Hold" which was published in 1900. "Audrey" combined romance and history and was made into a silent film in 1916. Johnston was a lawyer and related to a prominent Confederate general in the Civil War. Her books are rare to find signed and in fine condition. Uncut paper edges 418 pp. This is a tight and square copy--clean interior with strong hinges and only a little dustiness on the paper edges--otherwise a fine collectable copy. Johnston was among the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize.
