THE SKIPPER'S WOOING AND THE BROWN MAN'S SERVANT ..
1897 · London
by Jacobs, W[illiam] W[ymark]
London: C. Arthur Pearson Limited, 1897. Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii 1-195 [196: printer's imprint], title page printed in red and black, original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition. An early copy with a comma after the first "W" of the author's byline on front cover. Jacobs' second book, preceded by MANY CARGOES (1896), a collection of his seaport fiction. As is usually the case with these 1890's Pearson books, the pulpy text block and endpapers are darkened, but a very good, externally bright and fine copy. (#112468) (Inventory #: 112468)
