From the entry on Waifs and Strays (BAL 16301), first issued in an edition of 200 copies and as vol. 14 of the Edition De Luxe of the Complete Writings: “BAL has been unable to find any publication information for this issue but note that the bookseller Gabriel Wells announced a fourteen volume set, Edition De Luxe, in PW Oct. 6, 1917 … Presumably Wells handled the entire issue.” Not quite.

A choice copy, specially bound for the publisher at his bindery, the French Binders.
