1912 NY: Grosset & Dunlap, First photoplay edition (there was a later movie edition ca.1940). Illustrated with drawings by the author and scenes from the silent film starring Mary Pickford and produced by The Mary Pickford Company. A very good or slightly better copy in light green cloth lettered and decorated in brown and red. In the scarce original pictorial dust jacket featuring a color-tinted photograph of Pickford in a scene from the film. Jacket has considerable wear to the folds and some edge chipping including a 1/2" triangular chip at the top right corner of the front panel.
