London, Chatto & Windus, 1875. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Inscribed by Reade to the endpaper 'To my friend Frederick Greenwood \ WR - , April 75'. Reade died on 24th April 1875, so the inscription would've been one of his last ones, if that morbid detail interests you. Bookplate of noted bibliophile Eric S. Quayle on the front endpaper (Quayle died in 2001 when he fell off a cliff - just to continue the macabre interpersions in this description). The Outcast was Reade's seventh and final work. Greenwood was a journalist and editor, perhaps best known for finishing off Gaskell's Wives and Daughters. Greenwood died in his home in 1909 [ODNB] (feel free to ponder over the cause of his death at your leisure). No copies located in commerce. Three copies located on COPAC. 32pp ads to rear. A very good copy with just a little rubbing and bumping to the spine tips and a slight lean. Various booksellers over the years have scrawled their notes to the prelims. One note in biro, unobtrusive. [8067, Hyraxia Books].
