Catalogue Note

The publishers of the first American edition, Dodd Mead, reprinted the book twice before selling the copyright and plates to Doubleday. Their edition added an author's note and a preface (from the December 1897 issue of the New Review). It was published in two formats: a regular cloth-bound format and a more expensive limp leather 'Deep Sea' format. Inscribed copies of this title are rare.
