Tipped in opposite title is a one-page autograph letter from the author stating that the edition was limited to 30 copies. Very rare." 3 copies in RBH -- 1950, 1967, and 1979 (Howell). Recorded by Sabin but not found in any other bibliography. Seemingly held by Bancroft, Huntington, Yale etc. Item #125790
