Far From the Limelight

The first edition is very rare, especially to find a copy dated 1918. I own all of the copies pictured below.

The first British edition was published by Cassell and Co., and I am unaware of any first American edition.

Five stories are included in this book, all set in Rhodesia during World War I:

  1. Far From the Limelight
  2. There is Nothing of Importance
  3. The Falling Gods
  4. His Job
  5. Some Chronicles of the Honourable Dicky Baird and Other Rhodesian Colonists

The first edition without its original dust jacket, and its title-page. "First published 1918" is printed on the reverse of the title-page.
