Notes

Second edition. The book was first published in 1882. On his return to Britain following the outbreak of the First Anglo-Boer War, Haggard had been unable to find a publisher willing to take on his denunciation of Britain's South African policies, and paid Trübner 50 to print a small run of 750; however, only 154 copies sold in two years. The book was reissued in the aftermath of the runaway success of King Solomon's Mines, and proved much more popular, reaching a fourth edition by 1891. From the library of Roger Allen, the founder and secretary of the Rider Haggard Society, with his ownership signature to the front pastedown.
