AN EXPERIMENT IN GYRO-HATS ... Special Edition. Ellis Parker Butler.

AN EXPERIMENT IN GYRO-HATS ... Special Edition. New York and Chicago: The Q and C Co., n.d. [1910?]. Small octavo, pp. [1-3] 4-31 [32: blank], five illustrations by Albert Levering, original red cloth, front panel titled in black, publisher's monogram on rear panel printed in black. First edition. The story was first published in BROADWAY MAGAZINE, June 1910. An amusing tale of a wacky invention, written in the heyday of that curious sub-genre. The illustrations are amusing in a dry sort of way. This was apparently the only title produced by this publisher. An uncommon book, unlike most other works by this popular American humorist. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 340. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Day (1963) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 B-1347. A clean, tight, near fine copy. (#119413).

Price: $250.00
