Notes

First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the second free binder's blank, "Mrs. Patrick Caird, with the author's kind regards, 147 Victoria Street, S. W. Sep. 22nd 1904". The recipient was the wife of Patrick Caird of Caird & Company, a Scottish shipbuilding and engineering firm based near Glasgow. The Caird family was influential in the area; John Caird (1820-1898), the eldest brother of Patrick, was Principal of the University of Glasgow from 1873-1898, Hunter's alma mater. A comprehensive biography of Hunter based on the author's personal knowledge and including an extensive collection of Hunter's personal correspondence.
