About This Item

1909. San Francisco: A.M. Robertson, 1909. Original brown cloth decorated in black, with dust jacket. First Edition. Per the author's note, "It was expected that this book would be included in my 'Collected works' now in course of publication, but unforeseen delay in the date of publication has made this impossible." This copy is in brown buckram (others are in green, no priority). It is a fine, bright copy (the usual offset darkening of the endpapers) of this handsomely printed and bound book; its leaves remain unopoened, in fact. Included is the 1909 dust jacket, remarkably whole and clean, though there is one closed tear on the rear panel. Blanck 1127.
