Dust Jacket and Matching Bookmark

Plus Five Interior Illustrations by Harrison Fisher
with page decorations by Theodore Hapgood


A.L. BURT, Reprint (1906 by Dodd Mead) Given as a gift in 1910.The reprint is very like the first edition. It has the same color illustrations by Harrison Fisher, even the same page decorations by Theodore Hapgood, although they are green, rather than black (as in the first edition.) The boards are a lighter green than the first—actually a little better looking I think because you are able to see the decorative gateway design more clearly.

THE VOLUME: The book is in VERY GOOD to VERY GOOD+ condition. Very clean bright boards. Virtually no edge wear except for possibly very, very light rubbing to extreme tips of spine and board corners. One bumped corner. Others are sharp. Text pages also are predominantly clean. A little light foxing on the paper attached to front and rear boards and light discoloration on some pages facing illustrations. (See photos.) Small darkish splash on the lower outside corner of the rear endpaper, but only three of the final text pages are lightly affected with a few minute soiling/splashes. (See photos.)

Neat ownership inscription in ink on first end paper. No other writing. I see a slight crack at the title page, but the binding feels very tight and secure. Hinges feel. A tight and square binding. The tissue which covers the frontispiece has a crease.

A beautifully preserved copy of this story.

THE DUSTJACKET: A NEW FACSIMILE copy of the Harrison Fisher jacket, which sold with this edition, made from a scan of an original in very 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: A feud, a romance, a haunted house, a thunderstorm—all play a part in a story of love and adventure.
