Notes

First edition, number 14 in Lane's Keynotes series. The Keynotes Series, comprising 33 novels and short story collections, were produced by John Lane between 1893 and 1897. Aubrey Beardsley provided designs for 22 Keynotes volumes while working on The Yellow Book, a quarterly periodical also published by John Lane. The series shared a close relationship with the progressive literary trends of 1890s, emphasised by their designs by Beardsley, a leading figure in the aesthetic movement whose often scandalous art contributed heavily to the development of the art nouveau.
Gertrude Dix's The Girl from the Farm was a "new woman" novel, a popular Victorian literary genre which sought to provide "a window into the lives of middle-class working women and explore utopian ideals" (Harris, p. 1409).
