First edition, the rare Pittsburgh imprint. Printed on the copyright page "SPECIAL AMERICAN ISSUE." The jacket notes the fact that this is "A small American issue of 150 copies, on Flemish laid paper and bound in blue cloth, signed by the author, sold by Thomas C. Pears III..." Excellent book demonstrating modern methods of bibliographical research. Stevenson uses paper analysis to determine the printing date of this incunabula. Ink inscription on half title and loosely inserted is a Christmas greeting card signed by many friends meant to accompany this copy of the book.
