London, Heinemann, 1901. First edition, first impression. Hardback. Good. One of apparently seven or eight of copies sent by McClure to Heinemann for UK copyright purposes (actually ten were sent and two were forwarded to the authors). Denoted primarily by a Heinemann stamp to the title page (also printing details have been crossed out in pencil). This is one of the copies that had the incorrectly printed dedication leaf removed and replaced with a cancel. So, the assumption is that this is part of the second US 'issue' (presumably, given that this error is referred in the bibliography as an issue one would assume that a number of copies were issued for sale prior to the dedication typo being spotted. The typo was then corrected via a cancel and continued to be pushed out to retailers. The book was published in the US on 23rd May 1901. A letter from Robert McClure (in their London office) is dated 20th May noting that he's sending Heinemann ten copies. Those ten copies have all been corrected. This all suggests to me that there aren't two issues, but two states. Unless, of course those handful that escaped the correction were indeed sold to retailers prior to the "date of formal publication," As this particular copy was never issued for sale, either way, I can't wholeheartedly offer it as the second issue, nor the first! But it certainly comes from that larger batch of the printing that had the dedications corrected, which I'd be happy to call a second state!). I'm sorry you had to read that, it wasn't much fun. The book is water-stained throughout indicated by a tideline halfway across every leaf. Boards are toned and a little bumped, gilt is dulled, lower baords is stained with some red substance - looks a little too light for wine, more like ink. Pulling to the hinge near the front.
