Binding slightly worn; upper wrapper partially detached. Slightly foxed; some leaves slightly frayed at edges.

First Edition, [?]first issue. McCorkle p. 3. Hofmann p. 3. Hoboken 4, 1. Deutsch 1.

According to Deutsch, the first issue has neither price nor wrappers. Hofmann objects (p. 3): "Only the author's copies and the copies for export were issued without price; apparently this is what Deutsch's comments refer to." According to Deutsch(p. 9), the price on the unpriced copies was covered, i.e., it had been engraved before; thus these copies could not have preceded the present issue, which Hofmann identifies as first. McCorkle follows Hofmann. Item #26120
