In His Steps: Complete Authorized Edition
In His Steps Complete Authorized Edition Author:Charles M. Sheldon This is the most popular book ever published except for the Bible. More than 20,000,000 copies in nearly every language have been sold. Ironically, the author - due to a defect in copyright procedure - received no income from the fabulous sale of his work - except in this authorized edition. — Although Dr. Sheldon was not bitter at this irony, he... more » did object to unauthorized changes in some of the pirated versions, and only this edition received his approval. In a history of his remarkable book, he wrote:
"I wish now to tell the readers of this history... that there has been one publishing firm, out of more than forty that have published In His Steps that has voluntarily sent me royalties on all its sales. They are under no legal obligation to send me any royalties but do so from a sense of fairness and good will. I am asking friends who write me as to where to buy the book to be sure to purchase one bearing Grosset & Dunlap's name."
After Dr. Sheldon's death his widow continued to receive royalties on this edition to the end of her life.
