The Tragic Muse. Henry JAMES.

The Tragic Muse

London, Macmillan, 1890 [Colonial Library edition].

Octavo, [iv], 488, 4 (publisher's advertisements) pages.

Original green cloth a little flecked and marked (mainly on the rear cover, where there is also some loss of colour to the bottom corner due to moisture); short closed tear (very slightly chipped) to the head of the spine, with a tiny nick to the foot; endpapers offset; tiny top corner crease to four consecutive leaves; a very good copy with the contemporary label of Hyde's Bible Hall and Book Depot, 79 Rundle Street, Adelaide on the rear pastedown.

Macmillan's Colonial Library Number 109. Edel and Laurence F53 (but see also A34c, with which it conforms, minus the 64-page January 1891 catalogue). This second British edition was preceded only by the Boston two-volume edition limited to 1000 sets, and the London three-decker limited to 500 sets, both issued in the same year.
