New York: Neale Publishing Co., 1909 - 1912. First edition. Twelve volumes, EACH ONE SIGNED BY BIERCE. Contents same as limited issue of 250 numbered copies which were signed in volume one only. This set "compliments of" page signed by Bierce in each volume. One of an undisclosed number of copies presumably intended for the use of the publisher and/or author. Each volume BEAUTIFULLY BOUND in three-quarter brown leather with burgundy cloth sides; spines with gilt-stamped raised bands, 4 elaborately gilt-tooled panels with center fleuron, 2 gilt-lettered panels (author and volume number in one, titles in the other), and, at the bottom, "SPECIAL AUTOGRAPH COPY" between gilt rules; page top edges gilt; pale blue marbled endpapers. From the collection of Willard S. Morse, with his bookish bookplate in each and, tipped to rear pastedown, the "Morse Collection" printed card with handwritten notes to each volume. Volume 2 with signature of Grant E. Bell and date (1938) at bottom of Morse's bookplate and short, penciled quote (from p.76) on verso of first blank leaf. Volume VI is outwardly fine however it appears to have been singed and then dampened on page fore edges resulting in discoloration and some loss at margins; which is too bad because otherwise this is a near fine set with only scattered foxing to page fore edges of a few volumes and the occasional corner rub. Vintage typewritten index to contents of all volumes is laid in. "SPECIAL AUTOGRAPH COPIES"
