About this Item

251 pages. Interesting provenance and association copy. This first edition copy was apparently presented to the Kansas City Public library by the K.U. Alumni Association. The copy was returned because of missing pages. There is a notation in the hand of the author that the book no longer belongs to the KCPL, and now belongs to Jane ______. There is another notation in the hand of the author that the book now belongs to "Laurel of Laurel Town." A related notation by Laurel _____ explains how the book was given to him some 40 years prior by the above mentioned Jane. Finally, there is a handwritten paragraph by the author explaining ".In 1920 certain printers and binders in New York turned Bolshivik. At the time they were reading proofs and binding this book. The author being desperately ill, was unable to cope with their opinionatedness. Therefore the book came out with a number of typographical errors; and a few copies were enlivened with blank pages." Although this volume was one of those "enlivened with blank pages," the blanks have later been repaired by trimmed pages which were glued over the original leaves. Volume is ex-library with heavy markings, etc., both internal and external. Hinges (internal) are broke and text block is only loosely attached to covers. Cloth over spine is heavily worn and paper covers over boards are rubbed, stained, and worn along edges. Contents appear complete. Value is in the notations, inscriptions, and associations. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 015842

Store Description

With more than 25 years of experience buying and selling out-of-print, collectible, and rare books, maps, and ephemera, I am now doing business from my home at 60 Poplar Heights Rd.; Chanute, KS 66720; U.S.A. by appointment only. I offer a selection of more than 5000 books of all genre, as well as more than 1000 maps ranging from 15th century to early 20th. All inventory is hand selected and believed to be of significance for the collector, the reader, the historian or the general book lover. Historically, I have specialized in Kansas and regional history, but also maintain quality collections of Natural History, Theology, Americana, Railroad, Travel and Exploration, Medicine, Art, and Psychology, Neurology, and Psychiatry. Fine bindings, plate books, signed and inscribed items are also an important part of my collections. Smaller, though intriguing collections of other genre are also a part of my holdings. Appraisal, consultation, and collection development services are available. Please come and browse, talk books, and have a cup of coffee in a relaxed and book friendly environment. But for the convenience of both of us, please email or call first. Trade terms available and dealers are welcome.
