On the verso side of the half title page, the author has also added a line of correction for page 58. 216 pages being a collection of 37 poems, the most important being A Visit From St. Nicholas. This is the first appearance of this now famous and beloved poem "in a collection of Moore's own verse, and thus his first public acknowledgment of authorship." (Marshall, The Night Before Christmas A Descriptive Bibliography of Clement Clarke Moore's Immortal Poem, p. 10) The poem first appeared in The Troy Sentinel on December 23, 1823 anonymously. (BAL, 14348) As stated in Marshall's bibliography regarding this title: "This is considered by many scholars to be the definitive version." One's imagination is provoked with the possible connection between the author's last poem titled: "Southey" which is an ode to his deceased wife, and the name of the person who was presented with this book: "Miss Southey".

    Qauife, Milo M.:  The Capture of Old Vincennes The Original Narratives of George Rogers Clark and of His Opponent Gov. Henry Hamilton.  Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, (1927). Possibly a First Edition. Very good in black cloth covered boards with faint gilt text on the spine and gilt text stamping on the front board with blind embossed borders. An octavo of 8 5/8 by 5 3/4 inches with the cloth over the spine faded and the cloth worn through at the lower edges of both boards and the fore edge of the rear board. Signed by the author, Milo Milton Qauife on the first free end page with a date of April, 1928. Also, clipped to the first free end page is a two page letter from the Mississippi Valley Historical Review of September, 1928 which deals with the siege of Fort Sackville as well as a 1929 photograph of the "old British Jail" where Governor Hamilton and his British Officers were confined as prisoners of war 1n 1779-1780. 231 pages including an index and text. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of George Robers Clark from a painting. Bobbs-Merrill was very inconsistent in identifying their first editions for many years. They often used a "first edition" slug, but just as often made no mention at all. As this copy came from Mr. Qauife's library and he was its author it is probable that it is a first edition.

The intent of this book is to memorialize "the oldest and most profound medium of human communication - black lines on a white paper background." In anticipation of doing a book like this, for many years Sloane set aside many of his pen and ink drawings which together in this format provide an autobiographic reverie of this artist/author's life. A great many of the illustrations which appear in this 64 page book are architectural in nature showing barns, sheds, stone fences, covered bridges, toll houses, awning details, all of which serve to graphically explain the use of "shapes of shadow and shapes of light."
