THE DOUBLE SHADOW AND OTHER FANTASIES [cover title]. [Auburn, California: Auburn Journal Print, 1933.]. Large octavo, pp. [3-5] 6-30 [note: text complete; not issued with title leaf, pagination begins with contents leaf, pages (3-4)], original gray printed wrappers, stapled. First edition. Three minor corrections in the text in Smith's hand. The author's privately printed sixth book and first collection of short fiction. 1000 copies printed. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1483. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 200. Bleiler (1978), p. 181. Reginald 13304. Faint vertical center crease where once folded for mailing (minor and smoothed out long ago). Smith's signature and return address clipped from mailing envelope and neatly adhered to recto of first leaf (the contents page), 6 mm closed tear and tiny associated wrinkle at bottom edge of front cover, a nearly fine copy. A far scarcer book (especially in nice condition) than the relatively large print run would indicate. (#91206).
