AN INLAND VOYAGE
1883 - Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1883. 10 pp undated ads. Original bright green cloth decorated in black and gilt. First American Edition of Stevenson's first book (published five years after the London edition). Stevenson's third book, TRAVELS WITH A DONKEY, was published in 1879 both in London and in Boston -- making it Stevenson's first book to appear in America. ~This copy is bound in bright green cloth (decorated with black lines and a front cover vignette in gilt). Although this is the only color referred to in both the Beinecke and the Parrish collections, we have seen it also in olive-brown, terra-cotta and aqua-blue (presumably no priority). This is an unusually fine, bright copy, essentially without soil or wear at all and with the cover gilt remarkably bright. We have not had a better copy. Beinecke 14; Princeton 6B. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: Sumner & Stillman [ABAA]]
