Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v-vii [viii]  10-177 [178-180: ads], fly leaves at front and rear, inserted frontispiece, original brown cloth, front panel stamped in black, spine panel stamped in gold, white endpapers with floral pattern printed in olive green. First edition. A short sensation novel of a Boston lawyer with dual personalities, one good, the other evil, a kind of response to Stevenson's THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. In his foreword "To the Reader," the author acknowledges the similarity while pointing out what he considers the most important distinctive features of his tale. Religious orientation, good triumphs over evil with the help of Christ. The drug which transforms Sargent into an evil money-grubbing Italian merchant is intemperance due to too much wine.
