The Wonderful Century. Its Successes and Its Failures

London (&) New York: Swan Sonnenschein & Co., Limd. (&) Dodd, Mead & Co, 1898 Hardback, 140mm x 206mm tall (5.5" x 8.25" approx.).

Signed in pencil to the upper corner of the half-title: "Dr. A. Wallace". Although we cannot guarantee this to be in the Author's own hand, we feel there to be sufficient points identical to elements of his earlier signature [such as, for example that printed at the foot of the portrait photo frontispiece plate] possibly to indicate the Doctor's ownership of the volume after its acquisition in 1898 when he would have been 75/76..
