About This Item

Hardcover. Fine. Illustrated. 4to. Original green cloth, paper label on cover, rebacked. 126 William Street, New York (1898).

First Edition.
Limited to 125 numbered copies.
This is copy # 52.
Signed by Stephen Crane after his story, The Wise Men.
Also signed by 5 of the 6 other contributors: John Langdon Heaton, Irving Bacheller, Post Wheeler, Charles Gaines and Charles Lewis.

Cranes story is the first of 7 pieces and it occupies more than half the volume. It was once believed that he signed only 10 to 15 copies, but that number now seems low. It is safe to say he did not signed all copies and the number he did sign is in question. Crane died at age 28, and his signature is exceedingly rare.

Scuffing to the front and back covers; paper label soiled; front endpaper slightly wrinkled; some foxing to a few of the preliminary pages; o/w very nice. Uncut; partially unopened. Scarce
