SHARPS AND FLATS.
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1901. [In Two Volumes.] Original pale blue paper-covered boards with white parchment spine and fore-tips.
Large-Paper Edition, consisting of 150 copies on Holland paper, this being copy #96. This is a posthumous collection of generally-humorous pieces Field wrote for the Chicago Daily News, in his morning-edition column "Sharps and Flats." The first (trade) edition, from the same plates, came out in December 1900 (and bears that date on the title pages); this limited issue followed in March 1901. This is a remarkably clean, fine set (lacking the cloth dust jackets). See Blanck 5784. Item #13937
