Publisher: New York: Samuel French Publisher 25 West 45th Street. London: Samuel French, Ltd. 26 Southampton Street, Strand, n.d. [cop.
Publication Date: 1910
Binding: Soft cover
Edition: 1st Edition
Octavo, pp. [1-7] 8-35 [36: blank] [37-40: ads], original light gray wrappers printed in black, text block side stapled. First U.S. printing of this dramatic adaptation. A play based on Jacobs' most famous supernatural story and one of the modern classics of horror. Apparently, the U.S. issue of a work first published in Britain in 1910 (the British Library on line catalogue lists a 1910 edition published as part of "Lacy's Acting Edition of Plays," but no Samuel French edition). The ads in this copy are priced in U.S. currency (this title priced at 30¢), but the booklet appears to have been typeset in Britain as the printer's imprint appearing at the bottom of page 35 is that of a British printing firm, Boyler & Tanner, The Selwood Printing Works, Frome. Issued as "French's International Copyrighted . Edition of the Works of the Best Authors," number 379. There is also a "French's Acting Edition," number 1490, also copyright 1910. We do not know which edition came first. A fine copy. An uncommon book. (#77276). Bookseller Inventory # 77276
