About this Item

including half-title. With frontispiece and 7 plates. Original green publisher's cloth with gilt lettering and decoration; top edges gilt, uncut; first gathering loose, 1 leaf detached, preliminaries spotted, some faint scattered marginal spotting. From the library of James Rawle, with his armorial bookplate. First edition. Both stories originally appeared anonymously in the Atlantic Monthly. The case of George Dedlow was apparently never meant for publication, and was actually submitted to the magazine without Mitchell's knowledge. He found out only after receiving a proof and a check in the mail. The case of George Dedlow was so realistic that it was assumed to be a true story, and collections were taken up to help him. BAL, 6, 14192; BMC, XVII, 520; Osler, 5159. Bookseller Inventory # 11771
