A tight and handsome first of this reprint edition of the 1902 rags-to-riches tale of Wren. Gardner (1924-2005), New York advertising executive better known as a pioneering Alger biographer and bibliographer, introduces this text -- and the front flyleaf bears a fine archival, decorative-edged bookplate boldly inscribed and signed by him in blue fineline: "Wish best wishes / from / Ralph D. Gardner." A superb copy of this uncommon reprint and with lovely autograph addition.
