From the Introduction: "I thank Messrs. Scribner warmly for this the only uniform edition of my works produced in America.... The publishers do me a special service by enabling me to say that only the works published here are recognised by me as mine, for various volumes purporting to be by me are in circulation in America which I do not recognise as such.... They consist of scraps collected and published without my knowledge, and I entirely disown them." This set is pristine as it came from the publisher, including the glue marks from the original paper labels on the spine.; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall
