Publisher's (presumed) remainder or variant binding of full red cloth, front board and spine lettered in white (the first issue has gilt-stamping), dust jacket (ca. 1909, with titles corresponding to that year). Jacket chipped, worn, and torn, with tape repairs and restoration to jacket (repairs on the recto of the jacket), some rubbing to binding, some loss of white stamping on spine, this copy apparently bound without illustrations on pages 82 and 130 and the tissue-guard on the frontispiece (no evidence of removal). Bookplate. Still, a very good copy in a very rare dust jacket (Garrison's dust jacket was also a later jacket, but his was printed in red, instead of the olive green of this one). From the collection of Donald Kaufmann.
