First published 1911 by Putnam in New York.

I own a first printing of the Putnam first edition without original DJ. It may not have been published with a DJ, for I have never seen one. Putnam's edition was reprinted at least five times, so finding a nice first printing is difficult.

In the USA, both A.L. Burt and Grosset & Dunlap issued reprint editions.

Hurst & Blackett published its first edition in London in 1911, with ads at the end dated August 1910.

I own a very nice copy of the Hurst & Blackett first edition, and it also may have not been published with a DJ, for I have never seen one. This first edition is very rare, and I bought the only copy I have ever seen.

I have seen a Hurst & Blackett reprint with original DJ, but I do not own a copy.

Melville & Mullen Proprietary, Melbourne, Australia, published a Colonial first edition in 1911, but I don't own a copy.

Eveleigh Nash & Grayson published an edition with a DJ in 1935, but I do not own a copy.
