About this Item

Originally composed as a letter to King's friend, the "Bachelor of San Francisco," and first published in Century Magazine in 1886, this delightful tale was inspired by Cervantes and his account of Don Quixote's encounter with the legendary helmet of the Moorish king; Francis P. Farquhar introduces it here. The present example is => one of 350 copies printed at the University of California Press for the Book Club of California. Prior to this edition, the story ? which opens with a recollection of an encounter in San Francisco ? had only appeared in book form once before, in 1904. Provenance: Front free endpaper with inked gift inscription from historian Carl Wheat, author of Mapping of the Trans-Mississippi West, to Joe Blumenthal (of Spiral Press fame), a "fellow member of WOOFFB." 12mo (20.3 cm, 8"). xx, [2], 21, [3] pp. Publisher's quarter vellum and marbled paper?covered sides, spine with gilt-stamped author/title; minimal shelfwear to outer corners. A fresh, clean copy with an interesting inscription. Bookseller Inventory # 30622
