    More Information: O. Henry. [Miniature Book]. The Sleuths. New York: Winthrop Press, 1914. First separate edition (?), originally published in Sixes and Sevens, presumably a copyright deposit copy, unmarked but with the copyright certificate with the embossed stamp of the Library of Congress. Thirty-twomo (2.875 x 2.125 inches; 72 x 54 mm.). 32 pages, in-text illustration and page 1 and ornamental tailpiece concluding the text; text partially misfolded before trimming, causing some minor shaving to the text. Publisher's saddle-stapled binding in the original illustrated wrappers with printed endpapers, front endpaper serving as the title-leaf with an illustration on the verso. Wrappers very lightly rubbed; extremities with barely a touch of wear. Bottom corner of the last three leaves softly creased. About fine, housed in a custom clamshell case. Uncommon Sherlock pastiche, featuring Shamrock Jolnes. Originally issued in cigarette packages (Arcadia Falcone, "Sherlock Holmes's Infinite Case Book," Ransom Center Magazine, April 2013). From the Otto Penzler Collection of Mystery Fiction.
