London: John Ollivier, 1847. First edition (Wolff, 2366). Original green cloth, gilt, decorated in blind, 287 pp. Written under the pseudnym "Zeta" ontaining two stories, that of a prep school boy who is treated poorly by his masters and school mates and becomes a sneak and a cheat, and "the equally disagreeable story of seduction" of a young girl and the consequences for her. "The greater part of the edition is said to have been bought up and destroyed by Froude's father." (Alfred Frederick Pollard in DNB). This copy with the publisher's name in gilt at the base of the spine; Wolff's copy had "Harrison, Pall Mall" there. Not in Sadleir; both Wolff and Colbeck mis-spell the publisher's name. Ex-library, with no external markings but a few stampings on the binder's leaves. Slightly cocked. Top of spine with two little snags. A Very Good copy.
