[Offprint]: The Sport of the Gods

Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1901.


Hardcover. Offprint of this novel, preceding the published book version by a year, consisting of the pages from the published magazine supplied with a separate title page. Octavo. P. 515-594. Bound at a later date in black buckram titled in gilt. Small number stamp on separate title page else very near fine. Issued by the magazine and including the complete text of the novel that appeared in *Lippincott's Magazine* and was later published as a book in 1902 by Dodd, Mead and Company.

Rare. *OCLC* locates a single copy, at Howard University with the note: "Library's copy has bookplate: 'The Arthur B. Spingarn Collection of Negro Literature.'" It is unclear to us whether this offprint was issued with wrappers, but our best guess is that it probably was not. These sorts of ephemeral offprints are usually produced in very small numbers for the use of the author. Interesting provenance, provided on request.
