First edition in book form, first printing. The story was originally published in two instalments by Harper’s Magazine in 1906. Clemens’s own daughter, Susy Clemens, who died in 1896 at the age of 24 from meningitis, is understood to be the inspiration for the main character Cathy Alison.

Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine and front board white, horse and rider vignette to front board in white, brown and black. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece with tissue guard. Spine slightly faded, internally fine; an excellent copy in the slightly soiled jacket, with toned spine partially split from front panel and chip to centre of spine panel, and nicks and minor chips to extremities.
