Notes

First edition. Presentation copy inscribed to publisher Reginald J. Smith on the front free endpaper, "Reginald J. Smith, from the author, 1st December 1898". Smith was editor of The Cornhill magazine (in which Falkner subsequently published a story) and head of Smith Elder publishing house from 1894. This copy bears several pencilled marginal corrections in the hand of Falkner, whose attention to detail was legendary. It has the later bookplate of G & N Ingleton, and was number 11237 in the prestigious Ingleton Library Catalogue.
