Being a Set of Twelve Stories by [twelve different authors] with Twelve Illustrations by [twelve different illustrators]. London: Blackie and Son, 1894. Original dark blue cloth decorated in orange and green.

First Edition of this anthology of twelve original tales (for adults) accompanied by twelve illustrations. Henty's contribution is "A Shark's Fin" (illustrated by Frank Brangwyn) -- which Newbolt notes is "probably his only adult fiction published by Blackie."

This copy is in very good-plus condition (minor rubbing at the extremities). Quite a difficult book for Henty collectors to find. Newbolt 141.1. Item #12654
