Signed on the pre-title page with the words: "A M Rayner from E. B. Black" (faint - possibly in pencil) On the author's dedication page she states: “Many years ago the late Christopher Wiley, of Cloughton, told me the story of the last days of the smugglers of the Yorkshire Coast. He had heard it from men who had lived through those days, and he was anxious that it should not perish with him. Some of these incidents are still retold in the Coast villages, but, lest with the passing of this generation they should be forgotten, I have tried to make them live again in this tale which I have woven round them.”
