New York: Doran, 1922. Cloth, paper label. A very good copy, without dust jacket. Item #WRCLIT17576
First edition, American issue, one of 500 sets of sheets from the British edition exported to America to capitalize on the success of THREE SOLDIERS. This copy bears those determinative points often suggested, without basis, to represent the first "issue," while copies issued almost two years earlier in Britain, were frequently made up of the corrected, or second "issue," sheets. A clear case where states of sheets have no relevance in terms of priority of issue, in spite of long ingrained prejudice.
