The appreciation shown by book collectors and dealers for the first modest edition of this book--long out of print--has been so great, that it has seemed advisable to reissue it in a new, revised and much enlarged edition, this book. It consists of statements by the various publishers themselves as to the signs (or absence of them) by which their respective first printings are to be identified, and will thus provide a cheap and handy means of checking the books one buys or considers buying. Publisher's note to the original edition page has an oval stamp: The Private Library of William V. Jackson, No. 626 (actual number in cursive ink). Small chip at bottom corner of DJ. ; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 128 pages; 30717
