12mo, pp. 192. Original limp purple suede wrappers, spine lettered in gilt, front board blocked in blind and lettered in gilt, edges gilt, preserved in glassine wrapping inside the original publisher’s cardboard box with colour-printed onlay on lid.

A remarkable survival in absolutely fine condition, complete with its original promotional box which is also remarkably well preserved. The novel was first published in 1902 and frequently reprinted, as well as adapted into a film in 1921.
