Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1902. 236p., first edition 7x5 inch cloth boards titled and decorated gilt; casing is quite faded and has a nasty drip-stain down head of spine and cover-corner. Old San Francisco resident bookplate on pastedown. Not a collector's, but a pefectly good reader's copy.
