About This Item

1895. [in unbound gatherings] A Trio & Quartette. Chicago & Cambridge: Stone & Kimball, 1895. Original unbound folded signatures. First Edition, fourth printing, published on October 5, 1895 (the publishing history is itemized on the copyright page). This copy is still in its printed but unbound state -- in fourteen folded gatherings, the first being the preliminary couplet of half title plus title leaves. Condition is near-fine (a few very minor marks, shadow of writing on the final sheet). Quite uncommon in this state. See Beinecke (Yale) 599 and Princeton 56. Housed in a custom cloth slipcase with leather labels and inner chemise.
