Edinburgh & London: T. N. Foulis, 1907. 12mo. Stiff pictorial wrappers. Pictorial title-page vignette. Faint private name stamp on preliminary blank, some trivial binding glue discoloration inside the front wrapper, otherwise an unusually nice copy. First edition, later issue. Published originally by the Moray Press in 1894. Colbeck speculates that the Foulis copies of 1907 (which included a limited issue signed by the publisher) may have either been from a "small balance of unsold" 1894 sheets with new prelims, or were printed from the same plates. Indeed, the verso of the half-title here refers to THE MOUNTAIN LOVERS (1895) as still "In Preparation," along with DÂRTHULA: A CELTIC ROMANCE OF THE PAST (not published?), and the verso of the last leaf bears the imprint of 'Harfur and Murray, Printers, Derby', lending credence to the former hypothesis. While OCLC locates 10 copies of the 75 numbered and signed configuration of this issue, only one copy of this trade issue is located (UCSB). The 1894 publication marked the debut of Sharp's alter- ego, Fiona Macleod, whose fame, and some would say talent as well, exceeded any granted the works published under his own name. COLBECK II:742.
