New York:A. S. Barnes and Company. 1903. No. 28 of 200 extra illustrated large paper copies. 333pp with many still uncut. Top edge gilt. With an order brochure laid in. Hardcover with dust jacket.  Book in very good condition. End-pages discolored, but otherwise pages are bright and free of previous owners marks or signatures. Slip case is in poor condition, soiled and quite worn with cardboard separating at edges and seams.  *"Mr Stoddard was the last survivor of the time which has been called the Golden Age of American Letters. The Recollections which he had been engaged upon for a long time were on their way to the printer when he died in May.  It is peculiarly fortunate that his reminiscences have been preserved, for they are not only delightful on the personal side and full of entertaining anecdotes, but they also form in a sense an intimate literary history of our country for over fifty years."...order form.
