Offsetting and former owner's name to title page, and rusted staples, as seen. Else clean and unmarked. Binding is entirely secure. Cover by Frank Adams. As announced in this copy of Amaury: "Messers. Methuen have commenced the publication of a new English translation of all the novels of Dumas. This series will be practically complete, and only a few of the novels, not agreeable to English and American tastes, will be omitted. ... Each novel will be newly translated by Mr. Alfred Allinston...".

4 Alexandre Dumas fils The Lady of the Camelias, Diane de Lys, and A True Grisette
London John Dicks Press Paper wraps Fair Frederick Gilbert 
103 pages. With six illustrations by Frederick Gilbert. A fragile sixpenny publication in original wraps. Front cover detached. Light staining from orange wraps to first and last few leaves. Generally holding well, though particularly tender at p. 64 facing one of the illustrations: there the two halves of the book are holding by only two threads. Important Dumas fils works; I do not know of what "A True Grisette" is a translation. Ads for Reynolds's Newspaper (recto of both covers: with emphasis on the Working Man / "The People") and for Brooke's Monkey Brand soap ["Won't Wash Clothes"!].
