A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES
1885 - New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1885. Original light blue boards with blue-grey cloth spine. First American Edition, published a month after the London one. The number of copies printed is not known; however, in our experience the American edition is considerably scarcer than the London one, and the London edition consisted of only 1000 copies.~When the American edition does turn up, it is usually in wretched condition due to the light color and delicacy of the paper-covered boards. This, however, is a very good-plus copy (very minor wear at the extremities, and slight browning -- as usual); There is a Christmas 1885 gift inscription. Beinecke 196; Princeton 20C. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: Sumner & Stillman [ABAA]]
