New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1914. Original olive-brown cloth.
First American Edition, which consisted of 2000 copies and was published one day after Dent's London edition. Novelists covered by James include Robert Louis Stevenson, Emile Zola, Gustave Flaubert, Honore de Balzac and George Sand. This was one of several James titles that was unfortunately bound for Scribner's in this unattractive olive-brown cloth that is very prone to soil and fading; this, however, is a fine copy with very little fading. Supino 73.2.0; Edel & Laurence A73b. Provenance: the front paste-down bears the bookplate of Theodore Woodman Gore (1847-1923), which bookplate was designed by the renowned American artist Edwin Howland Blashfield. Item #12145
