#159 in The World's Classics. This is actually the first of 'The Boys' Classics', a short series begun by Grant Richards in the same format as The World's Classics but quickly subsumed within it after his bankruptcy and the sale to Oxford University Press. Most of them are very hard to come by and this copy is in lovely condition. Scarce.
