THE PRODIGAL SON. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1904. Octavo, pp. [1-8]  2-408, original decorated green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red and white. First U.S. edition. A complex "retelling of the story of the prodigal son, set in Iceland, with a simpler sense of justice than the biblical version and a typically elaborate Caine plot." - Kemp, Mitchell and Trotter, Edwardian Fiction, p. 321. Just a touch of rubbing at spine ends and corner tips, white enamel on spine panel largely perished, still a nearly fine copy. (#161932).
