I have a copy of this book from Keith Pajot of Renaissance, which I found in 1990. Now, twenty-one years later, I find another copy. I am trying to keep any book in the collection which has the slightest difference from another. This book has just that: the slightest difference. Whereas that title-page spoke of Donohue, Henneberry & Co on 407 to 425 Dearborn St., Chicago, this title-page speaks of 407-429 Dearborn Street. It does not mention Chicago. The firm swallowed another couple of businesses in the meantime! And, in the meantime, the 8 on the last page's 288 has become a bit broken. This is a well worn copy with a blue cloth cover, impressed with the same design as that red-covered copy. As I mentioned of the Renaissance copy, this book is identical with the Belford edition. The Thief and His Mother (95) would be great in a better copy. There is a great illustration of DLS (211). I have no idea where I found this book or was given it!
