2 Jacobs (W.W.) The Lady of the Barge. Illustrated.

NY: Dodd, Mead, 1902. First edition, presumed second issue binding with "Dodd Mead / & Company" at the base of the spine. The American edition preceded the British one by 25 days. Tan pictorial cloth designed in green, white, blue, and black. Frontispiece & 11 inserted plates by Maurice Greiffenhausen and James F. Sullivan. Small spot at base of spine, some light shelf wear, but a handsome very good copy; the inner hinges have cracked (common with this book) and have been inexpertly repaired, resulting in some tears to the paper at the inner hinges. Still, a generally clean and nice-looking copy. This collection of stories contains the first appearance of "The Monkey's Paw", a famous and often anthologized horror story, as well as "The Well", a supernatural tale.
