First edition, published 10 December 1879 in an edition of only 500 copies. James had become dissatisfied with Macmillan and offered Chatto and Windus "a short novel" in exchange for "a royalty & a certain sum of money down". James made sure of copyright in England by seeing that this was published first, anticipating the 1,500 copies published at Boston on 7 February 1880.
