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.
