One of three copies specially bound; a letter from the publisher John Murray to the novelist Michael Sadleir is laid-in, enclosing the present copy as a “swop” for “the splendid Amandiana”, and clarifying the limitation, noting that there were only three copies issued in this binding, “one for the author, one for myself and this one”. From the library of the scholar and auctioneer Anthony Hobson, with his bookplate to the front pastedown.
