Dealer Notes
First issue with “actresses” for “ancestresses” on page 207 of volume 1, and with the chapter numbers skipping over XLVII in that volume. First issued in twenty-four monthly parts, this is a sequel to Henry Esmond and is partly set in America during the War of Independence. Smartly bound.
