The Bibliophile Society printed a limited run (450) of these volumes in 1921 (Beinecke 717). The Stevenson manuscripts came from the collection of Francis S. Peabody. A note on the back of this title page says that a small Complimentary Edition was printed for Mr. Peabody; the title page itself says, "Privately Printed for Mr. Francis S. Peabody. Mr. Peabody was a wealthy American coal baron nd the founder of Peabody Coal. The size of this edition is not stated, though it must have been small. I also assume that this book is identical to the Limited Edition except for the title page. Brown covers with mock vellum backstrip. Uncut pages . Very close to fine except for light sunning on spine. Slipcases (no dust wrapper) is still solid with very light wear at corners. The spines state, "First printed Edition." ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 195,142 pages
