Donde se plasmó la grandiosidad de Cervantes y de la lengua española en su originalidad temática, la riqueza de la obra es tal que, en sí misma, la cual resulta inagotable, ya que se representa una cosmovisión especular del mundo en su época.

        A Child-World [Signed Association Copy] [A Child World]

      Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrill Company, 1897. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing -- with the variations required for the first printing (spine ends pushed, several pushes to the board edges, small spot to the spine tail), SIGNED AND DATED BY JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY as follows: "To Joseph Knight, Esq. / With all hale greetings and regards / - James Whitcomb Riley / Indianapolis, Ind., USA / Oct. 9: 1896", and housed in a custom-made slipcase with a buttressed spine lettered, decorated, and dated in gilt. This copy retains the original deep red to the spine and boards and is without the fading usually seen with this title, and the top edge is gilded. Published subsequent to the UK edition (1896), the book's inscription resides on a tipped-in leaf which Riley prepared for this and some other copies before the books were bound and ready for distribution, such inserted leaves being dated Oct. 9: 1896 as is the case with this copy. Clearly Riley had decided prior to the volume's completion to whom he wanted to present such copies and such persons naturally would have been those who were his close friends and associates. This copy carries the bookplate of the inscribee, Joseph Knight, to the front pastedown. Tipped in above Knight's bookplate is that of George A. Zabriskie and his son's name is embossed near the top of the first front free endpaper. Joseph Knight was editor of "Notes and Queries", the drama critic of the "Globe" in London, and a theater historian. (The University of Indiana holds correspondence between Riley and Knight.) George A. Zabriskie was President of the New York Historical Society and an expert bookbinder, and Fosdick Zabriskie was his son. A Very Good + copy with an excellent Provenance, INSCRIBED, SIGNED, PLACED, AND DATED BY JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY.
