The September 1896 Philistine is where we first see mention of this book and there were actually two ads. They state that 25 copies are this book are being done on Japan vellum, another says "Tokio" vellum with various artists, including Bertha Hubbard doing the illuminating and that all copies being spoken for, but the asking price had been $5.00. The edition as we know was of 26.
