Boston: The C. M. Clark Publishing Company, 1909. With Eight Illustrations. First Edition. With a wonderful presentation on the front endpaper from the author to his wife, to whom the book is dedicated: "To Luella B. Lane, With much love from the author. J. Russell Lane." With the bookplate of Clifford W. Schmitz Jr (Lane) with a pencil inscription below the ink presentation explaining that the author was John Schmitz Sr.'s great grandfather, with his first name in honor of the author. Also with info on another grandfather. An incredible association copy of a uncommon book of fiction. Apparently the author's only book. 12mo., pictorial olive-green cloth, stamped in gilt, green and brick-red; gilt titles on spine; 356 pages plus ads. Item #56605
Very Good (minor wear with few very tiny pin-size holes on spine; contents clean & tight; covers very bright & nice!). A great association copy!
