About This Item

New York: Russell & Russel, Inc, 1962. Reprint of the 1949 Princeton University Press edition; 8vo, pp. xvii, [1], 505; 4 full-p. facsimiles; very good copy in original blue cloth lettered in gilt on spine. Standard and now classic reference.

Synopsis

From the text: "The craze for first impressions of first editions, and first issues of first impressions of first editions, and first states of first impressions of first editions, has occasionally resulted in speculation and bibliographical absurdity among collectors and dealers.... Any minor change made in the course of the original printing is immediately seized on as constituting an 'issue.' A trial binding used for perhaps twenty copies of salesmen's samples becomes a rare 'first issue.'"
