Maggie. A Girl of the Streets (A Story of New York)

(New York): [printed for author], (1893). Hardcover. FIRST EDITION, SCARCE. A Milestone in the history of American Literature. Crane's first novel. One of only about 35 known copies. Crane had 1,100 copies printed but only two were sold through Bretano's. Bound in paper wrappers, which have been expertly restored. The original front wrapper has been backed and the missing areas have been filled in. The spine and rear wrapper are modern, but have colored to match the original front wrapper. The edges of the first few pages are chipped and several corners are clipped. There are a few spots of foxing to the interior, but otherwise it remains very clean. Housed in a modern clamshell box with rounded leather spine titled in gilt. 163 pages. LIT/030614. Very Good.
