My Own True Ghost Story [and, Baa, Baa, Black Sheep]

Philadelphia: Henry Altemus, n.d. 65p., two-color title leaf on coated stock, publisher's leaf, hardbound in 6.5x4 inch purple cloth boards, spine and cover decorated in green, gilt and blind. Except for titlepage, all presswork is on calendared paperstock. An unfortunately poor copy: casing is rubbed and edgeworn with a little fraying and turning of corners; signatures are fastened with staples in unusual fashion (a binder's bad idea) and tend to be cracked between gatherings; the slick title leaf is adhered to ffep and opens oddly; all preliminaries are foxed (title heavily). Handleable and textually complete, a reading copy.

Publisher's leaf shows 21 Kipling titles "In Uniform Style" the item in hand being no.8.
