Item Description: Selmar Hess, New York: (1894)., 1894. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Issued (by subscription) in sixty-eight (68) original parts. Large 4to. 240 x 310 mm. Paper wraps, somewhat worn with soiling and loss to a few parts. Each part contains 3 full-page engravings (one which is photogravure by Messrs. Goupil & Co. of Paris or other eminent makers) plus 24 pages of biography, illustrated with monochrome sketches. The contributors were also famous persons, and include: Theodore Roosevelt; H. Rider Haggard; Henry George; Margaret Sangster; Harriet Prescott Spofford; Albion Tourgee; Ella Wheeler Wilcox; Edward Everett Hale; Hans Christian Andersen; Thomas Carlyle; Will Carleton; Edward Everett Hale; William Lloyd Garrison; and many others. Books in parts are works which were published piecemeal (mainly in the 19th century) over a period of months or years. Each unit usually having a separate magazine-like cover. This method of publishing benefited the publisher as it was thought that the price of a weekly or monthly part at one shilling or a quarter was affordable to a wider readership than the price of pound sterling or $ 5.00 for a bound volume. They also qualified for mailing at a cheaper rate. Since they were meant to be bound by the purchaser, very few have survived into our present era. This edition apparently not in Arents (1957). Complete sets in this form are RARE. **PRICE JUST REDUCED! PARTS 1. Bookseller Inventory # 008PAR
