Description


Signed book: The Seventieth Indiana. Extremely rare, little-known signed edition. Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrill Company, 1900. Hardcover, 6.25 x 9.25, 372 pages. Signed on the frontispiece in ink, “Benj. Harrison.” Autographic condition: very good, with chipping to the edges of the signed page, as well as smudging/soiling in the signature area. Book condition: VG-/None, with staining to boards and textblock, cracked hinges, wear to corners, dings to edges, fraying to spine ends, and the gilt-stamped title off-center.

The first edition, first printing of The Seventieth Indiana bears a printed facsimile signature on the frontispiece, while this special edition was left blank and authentically signed by Harrison; he only signed about a hundred of these volumes in the year before he died. The special signed edition is also differentiated by the gilt upper textblock edge.
