Notes

First edition, first impression, the publisher's retained copy with the corresponding pencil-mark to the front panel of the dust jacket. The author's first novel, also published in the US later the same year, was partly based on her illicit relationship with writer A. E. Coppard. The author, born Ethelwyne Stewart McDowall, married Harold Taylor in April 1920 and with him co-founded the Golden Cockerel Press, together publishing Coppard's first collection of short stories, Adam and Eve Pinch Me, in 1921 (ODNB).
