The Figure in the Carpet...Glasses...The Next Time...The Way It Came. London: William Heinemann, 1896. 32 pp undated ads. Original aqua blue cloth blind-stamped with four irises.
First Edition of this self-deprecatingly-titled collection of four tales, each of which occupies about 65 pages. This first printing on laid paper consisted of only 1,250 copies, and this copy is in the first binding state (with ads, and with four irises rather than nine tulips on the front cover).
This is a near-fine copy, with scarcely any wear though the spine cloth (as is often the case) is a little darkened. Supino 46.1.5; Edel & Laurence A46a. Item #13842
