Very Scarce First Printing with the last page including adv with "A New Book by Robert Louis Stevenson". From the recently auctioned collection of well known collector M.B. Goldstone--with his gold bookplate and penciled notations on the ffep. One of his notations is on a separate typewritten sheet explaining that there were three separate binding orders of the first edition sheets during 1887. Each was bound with current advertisements. The earliest had the last page with the Stevenson ads for "Kidnapped" and "A Child's Garden of Verses". This is the scarce first issue with 12pp of ads including the last page about Stevenson. Included in this copy is a signed note from Page to the Omaha Literature club (3"x4")--who had requested his autograph. His note is written on the back of the original letter and reads--"Dear Madam: Never since I was a college boy. Yours very truly, Thomas Nelson Page". The inscription must have had something to do with the enclosed note--although it is only a partial note so much is missing. This is a very good copy. There are some light blotches to the rear olive cloth--or would be near fine. A square copy with tight hinges and only a little dustiness to the page ends. A beautiful front board and spine. The author's first book and the first printing--with a tipped in signature and from the M.B. Goldstone collection.
