by

Paul Leicester Ford

dust jacket, cover illustration,
& complimentary bookmark using artwork by

HOWARD CHANDLER CHRISTY

plus 5 other beautiful black and white interior illustrations by Christy

A. L. BURT
1900, Reprint of Dodd, Mead edition

THE VOLUME: The reprint contains the same 5 black and white illustrations which appear in the first edition. The biggest plus on the reprint's side is the addition of the color illustration on the cover and on the dust jacket. These only appear in the reprint version. However, the decorations by Margaret Armstrong, which appear in the First Edition are quite fabulous.

The Book Cover of the First Edition

THE DUST JACKET: A NEW FACSIMILE copy of the scarce Howard Chandler Christy dust 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. One of the more beautiful Victorian jackets I've seen. I used it to protect one of my First Edition copies. I also have one with the Margaet Armstrong jacket. Click here to see a picture of the First Edition dust jacket.

THE STORY: No clues about the story-line on the dust jacket for this one, but the lovely Christy illustrations sort of speak for themselves I think.

This Book was sold at an Ebay Auction.

If you would like assistance in obtaining another copy of the book with a facsimile dust jacket and matching bookmark please feel free to contact me.
