Notes

First edition in English, first printing (July 1928); originally published in German (Berlin: Ullstein Verlag, 1923). With an excellent photographic portrait of Salten mounted opposite the title page and inscribed: "for Mr Nelson Craig cordially Felix Salten, 1935". The portrait is the same as that used by Salten on his press card for the Union of Foreign Correspondents in Vienna (issued December 1932). Inscribed photographs of Salten are extremely uncommon.
