Publisher: Nelson Doubleday, Inc. copyright 1925.

At the beginning, this book includes a very short post humus biography of O. Henry by an actual acquaintance; Archibald Sessions. Following this short introduction is a collection of 25 short stories by O. Henry. The collection is titled; "The Voice of the City" with the subtitle "Further Stories of the Four Million." Within these stories the narrator finds the city's big voice in the busyness of people's day-to-day lives, their comings and goings. When he returns to the quiet of the park - and later, the quiet of his encounter with Aurelia - it's then that the voice of New York City speaks the loudest. The Short Stories include:

• The Voice of the City
• The Complete Life of John Hopkins
• A Lickpenny Lover
• Dougherty's Eye-Opener
• "Little Speck in Garnered Fruit"
• The Harbinger
• While the Auto Waits
• A Comedy in Rubber
• One Thousand Dollars
• The Defeat of the City
• The Shocks of Doom
• The Plutonian Fire
• Nemesis and the Candy Man
• Squaring the Circle
• Roses, Ruses and Romance
• The City of Dreadful Night
• The Easter of the Soul
• The Fool-Killer
• Transients in Arcadia
• The Rathskeller and the Rose
• The Clarion Call
• Extradited from Bohemia
• A Philistine in Bohemia
• From Each According to His Ability
• The Memento

This book has burgundy cloth hardboard covers. There is a very small white blemish on the front cover but otherwise the covers are in very good condition.. The spine carries the book title and a design in a faded gilt. The front of the book has a silhouette within a circle and the name O' Henry beneath. The stitched pages are clean and intact. No marks are found. There is a bit of white glue residue noted on the spine of the book where there was apparently a label at one time.
