Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1] 2-322, nineteenth-century three-quarter black leather and gray cloth, brown leather title label affixed to spine panel. First edition. There are two printings (issues?) of this Digby Long edition, this one with "[Now first published]" above the title (as here), the other with the subtitle, "A Story of Russia and Nihilism." A U.S. edition issued April 1, 1890 as volume 1, number 16 of Collier's "Once-a-Week Library," a subscription series, which may have appeared in between the two Digby Long printings. This is one of two books written by Eastwood. This is a presentation copy with an inscription by Eastwood at the upper right corner of the half title page: "To George Edmunds / with the kind regards / of the author / Nov 5th / 89." If the date of the inscription is correct, then it preceded Collier's edition, although the British Library assigns a date of 1891 to this edition (which is not dated by the publisher). This copy in three-quarter contemporary leather may be a presentation binding. A small broadside advertisement headed "'Within an Ace' / by Mark Eastwood / Opinions of the Press / ." is tipped in on the blank leaf preceding the rear free endpaper and a short contemporary newspaper review is pasted on to the rear pastedown, praising the book's narrative power and vivid sensationalism: the story begins with a hanging -- of the story's narrator and hero! -- and his revival some hours later in a surgeon's office. The story is told in the present tense. It's unknown whether the author was American or British. An additional gift inscription from a relative of the original recipient is present below the original inscription. Leather rubbed at spine ends and covers, but a very good, attractive copy overall. OCLC reports two copies of this book, only one in America (Ohio State). (#148229). N° de réf. du libraire 148229
