Part II of a two part bibliography issued by The University of Virginia. Part I: James Branch Cabell - A Bilbiography of His Writings, Biography, and Criticism, Hall F4 (A31), was written by Frances Brewer (with significant uncredited collaboration from Mr. Cabell), and was published simultaneously with this volume.

This copy is a collector's curiosity only, of no real bibliographic value. It is the author's personal copy, from his library, and the binding is (presumably) a one-off. It is bound in the same brown cloth that was used for the spine of the standard hardbound issue, Hall F5. This copy was rebound from an example of the stapled, unbound issue, Hall *F5a. This can be seen from the holes left by removal of the staples, which are clearly visible in the gutters of the pages. A close collation has shown no author's marks or corrections.
