iv, 124, iv, 132, vii, 104 pages. Preliminary notice regarding this Methuen Dumas endeavour bound in at pastedown of volume 3. Half title of volume 3 present. In all volumes: title page, introduction signed "R.S.G", and full text of the novel. Text is complete. Rusted staples as seen to vol. 3, former owner's signature to top right of half title vol. 3, marginal offsetting from cloth to first and final leaves; else clean and unmarked in entirely secure bindings. Very few of these Methuen sixpenny Dumas seem to have survived. Originally in wraps; a former owner has carefully cut out the pictorial front covers of this three volume set and pasted each on to green cloth-covered boards and bound the volumes very well, thus contributing to a remarkable survival. Covers by Frank Adams.
