D. APPLETON & COMPANY, First Hard-cover Edition, 1912

This is a truly beautiful book in my opinion with a stunning dust jacket. Wonderful illustrations by Charles Dana Gibson, many two-page layouts as shown.

THE VOLUME: The book is in VERY GOOD condition, probably the nicest copy I've seen of this title. Gilt titles on both upper board and spine are still quite bright. Faint soiling (or age-darkening) of bright-dark red boards. One very small faded spot on rear board. The rear board's corners are very lightly bumped. Front board corners still pretty sharp. Not much edgewear anywhere. Only very, very slight wear to tips of spine and board corners.

The textblock feels very solid and both hinges look tight and strong, and wholly intact. The binding is square.

No writing anywhere!! A pretty amazing volume. The wonderful Gibson illustrations are a delight.

THE DUSTJACKET: A NEW FACSIMILE copy of the Charles Dana Gibson jacket, which sold with this edition, made from a scan of an original in good condition, printed on one sheet of acid-free paper by an archival inkjet printer (80 yr. inks), and preserved in archival plastic.

THE STORY: This Robert Chambers' story is a romance with a lot of depth and complex characters. The 28 sets of illustrations by Charles Dana Gibson certainly added tremendously to my own enjoyment while reading it. Robert Chambers and Gibson attended the same art academy where they became good friends. Robert Chambers' story THE COMMON LAW was both illustrated by and dedicated to Charles Dana Gibson.
