Small bookplate of Athenaeum of Philadelphia at head of front fixed endpaper. Waldo G. Morse was an attorney in New York City in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Dudley Mixer Morris was secretary and treasurer of the Hawthorne Manufacturing Company. He and his wife, Edna Grippen Morris, in 1915 built a mansion in Bridgeport, Conn. It is an excellent example of neo-Tudor residential architecture, perhaps inspired by this book. As Wistaria Hall, it served as a residence for female students at the University of Bridgeport for many years.
