London, Griffith, Farran and Co., 1894.
Octavo, viii, 328 pages.
Gilt-decorated cloth a little marked on the spine and rubbed at the extremities; a very good copy (internally fine).
Inscribed on the half-title to 'E.P. Nesbit Esq QC, with the Author's kind regards'. The recipient was Edward Paris[s] Nesbit (1852-1927), 'lawyer, libertine, lunatic' (the 'Australian Dictionary of Biography' will enlighten you). The imprint details on the title page have been crossed out and replaced in ink with the name and address of the publishers Sampson Low, Marston. Copies with these replacement details printed on the title page also exist.
