London: The Strand, 1907. First Appearance in Print. Original Wraps. Octavo, original light blue printed wrappers. Mild spine creases, light chipping to edges of rear cover; a very good copy. Dozens of pages of period ads, plus a separate leaflet for PRINTER'S PIE Magazine is loosely laid in, as issued. Individual (unbound) issues of THE STRAND from this period are scarce in their original wrappers. Very Good. Item #311020
