New York: McClure, Phillips & Co., 1904. First edition of the author's first book. First issue with "McClure, Phillips & Co." on spine. 8vo black cloth boards stamped in orange, green and white. Good to very good with spine dulled and barely readable and elaborate front cover illustration a bit rubbed and showing a few small color touch ups but text block sound and, with the exception of a touch of minor damp staining at rear, quite clean. Housed in custom, blue-green cloth-covered chemise and matching slipcase with gilt-stamped black labels to spine.
