First printing with "Published April, 1914" and Scribner device on copyright page. Mixed collection of short fiction. "The Incandescent Lily" is an Oriental romance and borderline lost race story in which a young botanist finds a rare lily unknown to the Western world in a virtually inaccessible, hidden valley in China, inhabited by an ancient race whose presence is unknown to modern Chinese rulers. A contemporary review implies that it is a puzzle story along the lines of Stockton's "The Lady or the Tiger?" Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 M-1012. A fine copy. Most of the pictorial dust jacket, worn at edges and missing the spine panel, is laid in. (#118781). N° de réf. du libraire 118781
