First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed on the title page, "To Mr. W. Bowdain with complements sic from Max Weber, Jan. 16. '17" - that is, William G. Bowdoin (1861-1947), art critic of the New York Evening World. This collection of essays and verse was only Weber's second book, following his Cubist Poems of 1914.

The publisher's review slip is tipped-in at the title page, with the title, author, and price filled out in Weber's hand, and his note, "Also on sale at Brentano's".
