Sheffield: Author, 1900. Octavo, colour plates by Brittlebank. Publisher's light green "presentation" cloth, a fine set of the rarest of the three variants of this title.
"The[re] was only one edition. A London bookseller ordered 100 copies; when he saw the number of pages (over 1,000) he had it put into two vols. When my agent (Mr Petherick) noticed that (he should have seen it before) he ordered some likewise to be bound up in two vols. At the end I ascertained there remained a few copies still unbound, these I ordered in "green and gold" for "presentation copies". They were lovely books. That is the history of the 600 copies. Pity there was not the 1,000, as I originally intended ..." (unpublished letter from Campbell to A. H. Chisholm, May 1924).
