The Eloping Angels [presumed Eugene Field's copy]

New York: MacMillan & Co., 1893. First Edition. Bears the signature and bookplate of Eugene Field. However, as with many books bearing Field's signature, same could be that of Eugene Field's son, Eugene Field Jr., who worked with accomplice Harry Dayton Sickles in "enlarging" his father's library, adding provenance by forging his father's signature. Field Jr. was never charged, and his forgeries are now collectible in their own right. Very good with light wear to the covers, which remain bright. Item #113

Price: $70.00
