Termed a "book of monologues" by the author, the short works have titles such as: "Faint," "Sob." "Was," etc.
"In general, to help a man is like reviving an assassin who has designs on your life. For beyond the truth that most men are naturally your enemies, the one who solicits your help shews by the very act that you have something which he has not, and which he cannot like you for having."
Chocolate brown cloth, lettered in gilt. First edition, second binding, with Grant Richards's imprint at the toe of the spine. Very good, light wear to edges.
