The First Edition of the Author's First Book. THE AUTHOR'S PERSONAL COPY, with numerous corrections and additions by him throughout the text. Bound for the author in full brown morocco, heavily gilt, the spine with raised bands, inner doublures. The binding is original, and was commissioned for the author by his mother. The condition is outstanding - remarkably so, considering that Smith lived in a remote cabin in the Sierras with no electricity and with wood heat. The best copy in the world, now housed in a beautiful white quarter-leather case designed & built by the noted bookbinder, Gray Parrot. Stunning.
