4 [Stone & Kimball Rarity in Original Printed Wrappers] The Picture Book of Becky Sharp. A Play in Four Acts Founded on Thackeray's "Vanity Fair"

Chicago: Herbert S. Stone & Co., 1899.

First edition. Folio. Original publishers gray card wrappers with design and cover stamped in red. Photographic frontispiece (also pictured in smaller format on half-title), rubricated title page, and photographic illustrations throughout. Scarce Stone imprint, this curiosity has the complete text of a rather obscure play by Langdon Mitchell, ilustrated with photographs of the actors both posed and in action by Byron and Sarony, along with drawings accompanying the text. Not listed in Publisher's Weekly until April, 1900. Corners only very slightly worn, very unobstrusive water marks to preliminary leavs, else a near fine copy of an exceedingly scarce and interesting Stone imprint. Our Kramer bibliography, owned by Bob Monroe, one of the foremost collectors of Stone and Kimball, has it as one of the rarest Stone titles. Near fine with minimal chipping to cover wrappers.
