It is interesting to note here that the publisher was unhappy with the sales of this book - the two first printings only sold 656 copies (Wollf p 392) but it continued in print for many more years. Her melodramatic novels sold more than the combined works of her contemporaries, including Arthur Conan Doyle and Rudyard Kipling, although both her books and her personal life were the subject of frequent controversy. Wolff in Nineteenth Century fiction describes her books as "trashy .. . but they remain interesting as an extraordinary index to extraordinary public taste." and he goes on to quote Henry Miller in 1976 who said her work was "always fascinating and gripping" and Rebecca West in 1928 writing "she had an incurably commonplace mind" but also a "wild lust for beauty" and "demonic vitality." (Wolff pp 282-283)
    SIGNED on the half title page with the words "Second Production" referring to this as her second novel. 405 pp plus a 48 pp publisher's catalogue. Laid in is an undated brochure from Methuen advertising their sixpenny books. ISBN: vbf4.
