    A. Merritt. The Black Wheel. Completed and illustrated by Hannes Bok. New York: New Collectors' Group, 1947.

    First edition limited to 1,000 copies. Quarto. 115 pages. Five full page illustrations, including the title page.

    Publisher's black board covers with the front cover lettered in gilt. No dust jacket. Cancel copyright affixed to the copyright page. Minor rubbing to the covers, otherwise a very good copy.

    This work is a first binding due to the positioning of the title on the front cover in three lines rather than one. This work was published after Abraham Merritt's (January 20, 1884 - August 21, 1943) death, with about 20,000 words coming from Merritt and 65,000 coming from Bok.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
