About this Item

The first issue, very good in the original yellow wraps. Small chip in lower right corner of front cover, with very slight loss at the top of the spine. Pages are uncut at foredge and bottom edge. According to Starrett (pages 35 - 37), who specifically addresses the priority of bindings and who was ".deeply into the question with Mr. Schulte, the publisher" this binding is the first issue. The second issue, also in wraps, had the title in both red and black type on the front cover, while the first issue has the title all in black (as does this copy). Starrett does state that all three "followed each other closely" and that the only difference is in the covers. However, by its nature the wraps issue is much scarcer today. A solid copy of an ephemeral item in the Bierce canon. Bookseller Inventory # 017831
