London: Methuen, (1908). First edition. Includes "Gaspar Ruiz," "The Informer," "The Brute," "An Anarchist," "The Duel," and "Il Conde." Half-title and title page canceled and pasted on stub, as usually seen (only 2 to 4 copies with integral pages believed to be extant). One of 2,500 copies in the domestic and colonial issues, this copy being a domestic issue in dark blue cloth with spine lettered in gold and front cover printed in dark red. Publisher's 40-page catalog at rear dated "August 1908." (Copies also noted with publisher's catalogs dated February and June. But, as the book was published August 1908, we assume the variously dated advertisements were all available to the binder at that time, making it difficult to determine priority.) Cloth at spine slightly toned but lettering still bright, red front cover stamping dulled, otherwise about very good.
