  1. TALES OF VILLA BRIGITTE

    [5 small decorations] Tales of | Villa Brigitte [2 small decorations} | [double line] | Translated from the French | BY | M.A. OXON | [decoration] | VOLUME THE FIRST (SECOND) | H.-J. VICAR, SONS AND CO | LONDON & MELBOURNE [Paris] | MCMX [1910]

    11.43cm. x 19.05cm. 2 volumes. Vol.1: 155pp., Vol.2: 147pp. Printed on smooth laid paper. Title page printed in red and black enlosed in double line border.

    A French translation was puublished in 1911 by Bibliotheque des Deux Hémisphères [Jean Fort] as Recits de la Villa Brigitte. Note the discrepency here; the title page states "translated from the French" but the French translation appears to have came out AFTER this 1910 edition. Obviously then, one of the dates is false.
