Book Description Printed at the Shakespeare Head Press Saint Aldates Oxford for the First Edition Club Bedford Square London M CM XXX. "Three hundred and fifty copies have been printed.", 1930. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. [Colophon]: "Of this the Eighteenth book published by the First Edition Club, three hundred & fifty copies have been printed at the Shakespeare Head Press Saint Aldates Oxford in Cloister type on Batchelor's hand-made paper. It has been designed and arranged in every detail by Bernard H. Newdigate as a volume in the series commissioned by the First Edition Club to be printed by English typographers." 8 in. x 11 1/4 in., full-page frontispiece wood-engraving, with tissue guard; title-page with a wood-engraving; contents page & short introduction by A. J. A. Symons: [6]pp., pp. 1-88 + colophon page; illustrated with a total of 8 wood-engravings (six are smaller sized, used as the headings to each sketch). Bound in full limp vellum with turned-in fore-edges, with the titling gilt-lettered on the spine and front cover. The vellum cover margins and edges show some light dusting, very light, typical bowing to the cover fore-edges. A near fine copy. Contents: [1] On a Mountain; [2] What I Saw of Shiloh; [3] A Little of Chickamauga; [4] The Crime at Pickett's Mill; [5] What Occured at Franklin; [6] Four Days in Dixie. [I]t may be briefly said that Bierce, when sixty-eight years old, disappeared in search of adventure or suicide into Mexico in 1914. [-] The circumstances of his death, itself a matter of presumption, are still unknown, but he is believed to have been shot by military bandits as a penalty for offering unnecessary advice. (-From A. J. A. Symons' introducton). Seller Inventory # F-19
