BRONSON, CLARK H. - Twice a Man. A psychological romance.
Chicago, Bronson & Co. 1904. Octavo publisher's olive cloth decorated in green and gilt (spine a little dull and faded); frontispiece portrait, illustrations by French. Natural browning of the paper, a rather good copy. ¶ Only edition of this rare oddity, a novel of "double memory" in which the hero has two lives thanks to a kind of amnesia. As the author says himself, "It contains humor and pathos, sentiment and philosophy" and in case this alarms the shy reader, it also "abounds in dialogue and dramatic situations". At the end is an appendix with two authentic cases and the author's theory followed by three closely packed pages of enticements for readers, booksellers and canvassers. While priced at $1.50 a copy will be mailed to anywhere in the world, whether England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Australia, Van Dieman's Land, New Zealand, India ... for $1.40. Customers in all these places have closely held their copies: Worldcat finds only three copies, all in the US. Bronson self published a book of verse in Iowa some years earlier and Bronson & Co apparently existed only for this book.AUD 185.00 [Appr.: EURO 131.5 US$ 141.75 | £UK 113.5 | JP¥ 15764] Book number 9392
