London: Walter Scott, 1891. 6 pp undated ads. Original dark olive cloth.
First Edition of Shaw's third book (other than several Fabian tracts); his first play was not published until 1893. Laurence points out that among binding colors there is no evidence to indicate anything but simultaneous issue -- though blue copies are more frequently encountered. In any event, this is a fine copy (very light rubbing at the corners), which makes it rather uncommon. Laurence A12a; Colbeck p. 744. Item #1172
