London: Chatto & Windus, 1909. First Edition. Hard Cover. (London: Chatto & Windus 1909). First UK Edition. Publisher's brown cloth, decoration and titles to front board in black and orange. 32-page publisher's catalogue dated 908 (for September 1908) inserted at rear. Currey helpfully points out that Copies of this book are found with an inserted publisher's catalogue dated 908, but the book wasn't published until late 1909, so catalogues dated 908.pre-date publication by several months to a year. Currey goes on to say that the insert is of no significance in establishing the priority of issue -- if any -- of first printing copies. Usual browning to the end-papers with boards bright and attractive and strong hinges externally this is a a bright and attractive VG+ copy. Queen's Quorum # 42. The author's first book of short stories, preceded by 'The Red Thumb Mark'. A very nice copy indeed. Photographs/scans available upon request.

Cooper and Pike mention this wrappered issue on page 137: "According to the Freeman collector, P. M. Stone, part of the edition was bound in black wrappers, also with the thumbmark motif".
