A Changed Man And Other Tales

Condition: See description

Leipzig: Bernard Tauchnitz, November, 1925. Vol No.4458. Copyright edition 1913. Small 8vo. Bernhard Freiherr von Tauchnitz (1816-1895), the founder of the firm of Bernhard Tauchnitz, was the nephew of Karl Christoph Traugott Tauchnitz (1761 - 1836). His printing and publishing firm was started at Leipzig in 1837. Bernhard started the Collection of British and American Authors, a reprint series familiar to anglophone travellers on the continent of Europe. These inexpensive, paperbound editions, a direct precursor to mass-market paperbacks, was begun in 1841, and eventually ran to over 5000 volumes. Tauchnitz editions were more often than not published at the same time as the true first, many with the injunction that they should not be introduced into the British Empire or the USA for copyright reasons.

Multi-volume Set

The person who, next to the actors themselves, chanced to know most of their story, lived just below 'Top o' Town' (as the spot was called) in an old substantially-built house, distinguished among its neighbours by having an oriel window on the first floor, whence could be obtained a raking view of the High Street, west and east, the former including Laura's dwelling, the end of the Town Avenue hard by (in which were played the odd pranks hereafter to be mentioned), the Port-Bredy road rising westwards, and the turning that led to the cavalry barracks where the Captain was quartered.
