Comments

A handsome copy of Du Maurier's wildly successful novel of Bohemian life, in the original text which was significantly altered for book publication. The serial version also contains many illustrations by Du Maurier which were not published in the book. In his XIX Century Fiction: A Bibliographical Record, Michael Sadleir observed: "This serial issue was not only lavishly illustrated by du Maurier with drawings not reproduced in the three-volume edition; it also contained a passage of nearly 1500 words, plus a drawing introducing, describing and depicting a character 'Joe Sibley'. This passage and drawing . . . were suppressed after serial issue as, beyond a shadow of a doubt, they represented Whistler. (Sadleir 1675 ii)
