London: Macmillan and Company, 1902. [Illustrated] FIRST EDITION, in First Issue binding. Large Octavo (24 x 19cm), pp.; 249;  With illustrations by the author. Publisher's decorative red cloth boards, blocked in white and black depicting notable incidents from the stories. Armorial bookplate. Internally clean, binding sound, but for the inevitable loss of blocking detail. The white decorative stamping to the cloth famously failed to adhere on the first issue binding, meaning these copies now lack significant portions of it; the paint formula was changed for the later issue, which survives intact.
