New York: Knopf, 1916. Green cloth, lettered in pale red. Bookplate shadow on pastedown, some rubbing to corners, light soiling to lower board and front free endsheets, otherwise very good. First edition thus, being the text of EL OMBÚ amplified by two additional pieces published for the first time in book form. An association copy of the first order, inscribed by Hudson: "To Mrs. Knopf with greetings from W.H. Hudson Nov. 9, 1916." Blanche Knopf served as Vice-President of the then newly established publishing firm, and was particularly influential in bringing to its list the large field of British, Continental and Latin American writers that so distinguished the firm's history. Formal publication took place on 13 October, and because of geography, not a book commonly found inscribed by Hudson. PAYNE A33a.
