Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author "To W. W. Jacobs This little tale of Serious Reading from H.G.W." Beside this inscription Wells has drawn a sketch of two men loading cargo onto a ship one of whom bears the initials WWJ. An excellent association: Jacobs was a close contemporary of Wells, the highest earning writer of his day, and a superb technician.
