Notes

First edition, first impression, of this translation. Inscribed by Frankie Birrell to the Bloomsbury Group members Ralph and Frances Partridge on the front free endpaper: "To Ralph & Frances from the translator". Frances Partridge née Marshall worked at Birrell and Bunny Garnett's bookshop in her early twenties, and records in her autobiography her mother's alarm when she brought home a bottle of whisky that Birrell had gifted her (Partridge, Love in Bloomsbury, p. 8). As Ralph and Frances were not married until 1933 - Ralph was married to Dora Carrington at the time of the book's publication in 1927 - the book would have been inscribed some time after publication, but before Birrell's death in 1935.
