London: Grant Richards, 1903. - Slightly later unsigned three quarter navy blue pebbled morocco and cloth, spine gilt extra, a.e.g., marbled endsheets. Extremities rubbed, short tear in fore-edge of front free endpaper, a bit cocked, internally very good. First edition of Butler's posthumously published semi- autobiographical novel, and the work which will remain most frequently associated with his name in the popular mind. Edited, with a prefatory note, by R.A. Streatfeild. Although printed in a large enough edition (1500 copies), which took some four years to sell, the physical construction of the book guaranteed that fine copies would not be the norm for succeeding generations of collectors. This copy was rebound early on (before, at least, 1919, based on the former owner's pencil acquisition note), without the terminal adverts, and not with great distinction. HOPPÉ 42.
