About this Item

This copy has been rebound in maroon buckram. This is the copy of the first edition that was used by the Steck Vaughn company to make their facsimile reprint in 1967. To photocopy the pages, it was necessary to take the book apart. When they finished, they rebound it in their binding, complete with illustration of a hand holding three playing cards. Housed in a slipcase of the same maroon fabric. Serveral pages have been repaired with tape as necessary prior to photocoping. The preface page has a corner broken off, it was repaired with new paper. There was, of course, no loss of text. Wright Howes (USiana) reports that the first edition was 300 copies. Page number 174 has a 4" closed tear that has not been repaired. Bookseller Inventory # 12655
