Philadelphia, PA: George W. Jacobs, 1910. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine / Near Fine. Item #008288
8vo., 422pp. Beautiful First Edition, bound in publisher's green cloth with titles stamped in white on front board and spine. Square, tight and incredibly clean throughout. A touch of softness to spine ends and a hint of wear to the bottom front tip. Lettering fading on spine. Stunningly fresh and bright example of a quite scarce 110 year-old dust jacket in any condition. Unclipped though flaps are blank, ($1.25 on the spine panel). Some quite minor edge-wear and a couple of tiny nicks at the top of the hinges. A couple of short closed tears though barely noticeable. Remarkably well-preserved. A simply gorgeous collectable copy and unlikely to be found in any better condition. (Hubin p.101).
