About this Item

Thirteen volumes bound in finely patterned tan cloth with spine titles stamped in black. Volumes one through ten marked as "Edition Original", published by Little-Preston of Battle Creek, and limited to 1000 numbered sets, this being #340. Volumes eleven through thirteen are supplementary volumes in matching cloth, issued by The McClure Company in 1910, each with corresponding 1910 dates to the title and copyright pages. All volumes are lavishly illustrated with photographs by the author; each volume also carries a tinted photograph with a captioned tissue guard as a frontispiece. All volumes have floral endpapers, gilt top edges, and deckled fore-edges. Each volume contains 336 pages. Titles as follows: Volume 1: Into Morocco; Fez; The Moorish Empire. Volume 2: Round About Paris; Paris Exposition 1; Paris Exposition 2. Volume 3: Olympian Games; Grecian Journeys; The Wonders of Thessaly. Volume 4: Cities of the Barbary Coast; Oases of the Algerian Sahara; Southern Spain. Volume 5: Hawaiian Islands; The Edge of China; Manila. Volume 6: The Yellowstone National Park; The Grand Canon of Arizona; Moki Land. Volume 7: Through Europe with a Camera; Oberammergau; Cycling Through Corsica. Volume 8: St. Petersburg; Moscow; The Trans-Siberian Railway. Volume 9: Down the Amur; Peking; The Forbidden City. Volume 10: Seoul, the Capital of Korea; Japan - The Country; Japan - The Cities. Volume 11: Egypt; Southern Italy; Switzerland. Volume 12: Norway; Sweden; Denmark. Volume 13 (Supplementary volume): London; Paris; Berlin. All volumes show moderate foxing at the edges of the cloth, with some corner wear and small frays at the head and heel of the spines. Volume 8 has a 2" crack at the top of the rear hinge, otherwise all hinges are solid. All contents are clean, tight and unmarked, with no foxing or toning. While later reprint sets usually contain all thirteen volumes, the McClure originals of 11, 12, and 13 are quite uncommon. These volumes are still sturdy and can be easily handled with proper care. Foreign postage will require a premium; please email for details. We can supply more photos at your request as ABE allows only five. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 124732
