New York: Boni & Liveright, (1922).
Hardcover. First edition. Octavo. vii, 502pp. Spine gilt a bit dulled, light edgewear with a small snagged tear on the cloth of the rear board, upper hinge split but sound, very good. Inscribed by Dreiser to his editor in the year of publication: "To T.R. Smith, with the regards & best wishes of Theodore Dreiser, N.Y. Dec. 1922." T.R. Smith worked with Dreiser, helping to edit his book *An American Tragedy* (or, as a laid-in bookseller's slip from the 1960s states: "...Smith was to Dreiser what Perkins was to Wolfe, cutting and trimming his massive *An American Tragedy*, and pulling it into a coherent whole." An excellent association. The author's second volume of autobiography, published grudgingly by Horace Liveright in order to secure future novels from Dreiser, it sold just over 2,000 copies.
