Description:
1888. By Q. London: Cassell & Company, 1888. 16 pp ads dated July 1888. Original tan cloth pictorially decorated in black. First Edition of Quiller-Couch's second novel, which like his first and third (DEAD MAN'S ROCK, 1887, and THE SPLENDID SPUR, 1889) were published under the pseudonym "Q". Much of the tale is in his native Cornish dialect. Later on Quiller-Couch turned primarily to literary criticism, editing THE OXFORD BOOKs of English Verse, English Ballads, English Prose, etc. It was also he who completed Robert Louis Stevenson's ST. IVES, left unfinished at the latter's death. Cassell published this tale in the same series, and same type of soil-prone binding, as Haggard's KING SOLOMON'S MINES and Stevenson's THE BLACK ARROW -- which series was promoted as "Books for Boys." This is a remarkably fine copy, virtually free of wear and soil -- and is quite uncommon thus. NCBEL III 1071.
