(Riverside, CT): Hillacre, . First Edition Small quarto (6-1/4" x 9-1/2"). Issued in an edition of 500 copies, 450 on Utopian laid paper and 50 on Nordeling hand-made paper. Present here are examples of each of the two issues. The larger limitation is as published in blue paper-covered boards with a printed paper label on the front cover. The smaller limitation is bound by E. C. Lewis Co., Baylis Bindery, New York, in full black morocco leather with gilt-ruled panels and a new gilt-decorated and lettered spine, marbled endpapers. The smaller limitation is uncommon in the market. Though there is no indication of such in the books themselves, both of these volumes were in the possession of Louis Bryant, Reed's wife. Dampstaining to the bottom of the spine of the larger limitation copy with little effect on the text. Some aging to the leather of the smaller limitation volume and soiling to the endpapers. Both Very Good (Item ID: 017503)

Perhaps the best known left-wing American journalist of the twentieth century; Reed was portrayed by Warren Beatty in the film REDS, nominated for twelve Academy Awards and winner of three, which centered on Reed's life, notably his romance with Louise Bryant, played by Diane Keaton, and his early death at 33 in Moscow. Reed's best known book, TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD, is Reed's firsthand account of the October Revolution in Russia in 1917.
