Description: 8vo, original printed wrappers, lacking the spine. Paris: Charpentier et Fasquelle, 1900. First Edition. TOGETHER WITH the first American Edition, translated by Louis Parker, in blue cloth decoratively stamped in gold. N.Y.: R.H. Russell, 1900. Fine copy. 2 volumes , each with a cloth dust wrapper, in a double 1/2 morocco slipcase.

Comments: The French edition bears a presentation from Rostand, with an initialed postscript, and an initialed ink drawing of a figure in uniform with a sword. The American edition has three presentations to the same indefatigable collector: a 6 line inscription from Louis Parker, the translator, dated 1901, Rostand, who compliments the translator, in 1902, and Maude Adams, who was in the cast of the New York production, in 1904. A unique set.

You've got yourself one happy customer at this end, folks. I've been looking for another copy of "West of the Indus" for nearly twenty years (I know, it's such a cultural wasteland out here in the provinces), and I never expected to find one with a dust jacket. I am amazed. Thank you so much. I've enjoyed many books over the years, but this one has always been one of my favorites. Now if I can just figure out how to share it with my friends without losing it... - Paul B.
