Notes

First edition, with the frontispiece designed by Aubrey Beardsley. Second issue as usual: there were a few copies sent for review with an 1895 title page and Beardsley's "Black Coffee" frontispiece, but following a complaint by the publisher John Lane about the use of this image, which had been prepared for the fifth volume of The Yellow Book, the review copies were recalled. Beardsley contributed a new frontispiece for this issue, the present "portrait of the author".
