MY LADY NICOTINE A STUDY IN SMOKE. James M. Barrie.

MY LADY NICOTINE A STUDY IN SMOKE.

Boston: Joseph Knight Company, 1896. Octavo. Cream colored cloth, lettered in gilt, with pictorial vignette on upper board printed in black, pink and green, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Frontis, pictorial title (mimicking the binding design), illustrations and decorations. Cream cloth somewhat handsoiled and darkened, rear inner hinge cracking very slightly, several leaves very carelessly opened, with at least two seriously torn (without text loss), hence just a fair copy, though in some other regards agreeable. Item #WRCLIT86635

Another unauthorized US edition, following the Rand McNally & Co piracy of 1891, here standing out somewhat from the herd of others by virtue of the illustrations by Maurice B. Prendergast (which also appeared in an 1895 edition under the imprint of H.M. Caldwell, Boston). CUTLER, p.55.

Price: $75.00
