Octavo, original blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold and blind, bottom edge untrimmed, plain endpapers title page printed in blue and black. First edition. Fourteen short stories, Merrick's seventh collection of short stories, first published in 1914. A highly regarded author of literary fiction in his day, often with a theatrical background, of which he gained firsthand experience during a two-year period as an actor-manager. Merrick also lived in South Africa as a young man, working for a brief period in a diamond mine. A fine literary craftsman, Merrick preferred writing stories to novels. "His short stories, modeled on the French, especially Maupassant, have taken over something of French social ideas as well as Gallic wit and subtlety." - Millett, Contemporary British Literature, 3rd. ed., p. 359. Same format as Hodder & Stoughton's twelve-volume edition of THE WORKS OF LEONARD MERRICK (1918--1919). NCBEL III 1069. Touch of rubbing to spine ends, small damp stain to rear cover, free endpapers tanned, a very good copy with generally clean and bright binding. (#116652). N° de réf. du libraire 116652
