London: Grant Richards, 1903. Gilt cloth. Quite worn, with repairs to spine ends and significant nicks and fraying, inner hinges cracked. A reasonable candidate for rebinding, enclosed in cloth slipcase and chemise. 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. HOPPÉ 42. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76144)
