Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-31  [33-34: blank] [note: first and last leaves are blanks; title leaf is on calendared paper and is conjugate with the frontispiece], three inserted plates, original decorated limp red leather, front and spine panels stamped in gold, green endpapers. First edition. A presentation copy from the anonymous uncredited illustrator with his unsigned inscription on an etching affixed to the front free endpaper. (The etching, like the plates in the book, are signed with a stylized emblem of an artist's palette.) Copies in this leather binding are very uncommon (the book is usually seen in purple cloth). Probably Kelland's second book, preceded by the first of his Mark Tidd books, also published in 1913. Kelland, one of the most prolific and successful American writers of popular fiction, also wrote the short story which was the inspiration for "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town," the 1936 film starring Gary Cooper. In the present story a successful proponent of atheism acquires an antique Hebrew coin which turns out to be one of the thirty silver coins paid to Judas for informing the authorities about Jesus: it has magical properties and whisks the hero back to Biblical times where, like Saul on the road to Damascus, he sees a vision and is converted. Bleiler (1978), p. 112. Reginald 08102. Smith, American Fiction, 1900-1925 K-63. Light wear at upper spine end, lower spine end and corner tips rubbed, a tight, bright, very good copy. (#114174).
