About this Item

The original dust jacket bears a closed one-inch tear to top of rear panel, and is somewhat darkened to spine. Crossed sword-and-tomahawk device printed in black to jacket spine remains strong, but the original author name and title there, in a red ink famously prone to sun-fading, are barely visible. Book itself shows some cosmetic erosion of the cloth where front board meets the spine (though board is still firmly attached.) This is the second state, with titles in black to darker blue cloth-covered boards; no gilt accents. No dates showing except 1900 copyright, and "Bowen-Merrill" of course was to become "Bobbs-Merrill" in 1903, but glossy frontispiece (still protected by its tissue guard) and the five additional glossy B&W internals, while they remain firmly attached, are in sepia, neither color nor true B&W, again indicating the second state. (First edition, first state identified by gilt accents to lighter blue front board and spine, by color frontispiece, by five glossy internals in true B&W rather than sepia, by 12-page ad section at rear rather than 14 pp., by absence of any ad there for this title, and by printer credit "Braunworth, Munn & Barber.") Printer credit here reads "Braunworth & Co.," indicating a 1901 or 1902 printing. This later printing also adds at rear the acknowledgment "to the historical work of the late Hon. William H. English, and to his son, Capt. William E. English, for most valuable historical documents and details connected with the annals of Old Vincennes. . . ." All illustrations signed F.C. (Frederick Coffay) Yohn, the Indianapolis artist (1875-1933) best known for his painting of Washington at Valley Forge, who also (appropriately enough) designed the early (1929) 2-cent U.S. commemorative postage stamp marking the 150th anniversary of the victory of George Rogers Clark at the Battle of Sackville/Vincennes. Historical novel about -- of course -- Vincennes and the Revolutionary War. 419 pp. followed by 14 pp. section of publisher's ads, which section includes an ad for this title, advertised (confusingly enough) as "with five illustrations and a frontispiece in color." Reduced from $105. Bookseller Inventory # 004832
