New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1897. Gilt decorated mustard brown cloth. Cloth a bit sunned at edges, small number tag in corner of front pastedown, trace of foxing to endsheets, otherwise very good. Second edition of Garland's third book, with a revised subtitle, first published in 1892 in Chicago subtitled "A Dramatic Story." Inscribed and signed on the half-title: "A study of contemporary legislation." Garland had originally conceived the work, which is based on a real case of political corruption involving bribery by railroad interests, as a play, which actually saw a trial production. But its lack of success led to its reconception as a novel. WRIGHT III:2117 (1st ed). (Inventory #: WRCLIT76439)
