Title:   Frivolous Cupid.

Publisher:    NY: Platt, Bruce, 1895. First edition. 

Seller ID:   55319

12mo. Mustard cloth lettered and designed in black. Some light wear, but a bright very good copy. A collection of short stories which had no British edition. Presumably, a piracy; from The Bookman: "Mr. Hope has recently written to The Bookman that an American firm has published 'a new volume of stories, by Anthony Hope, entitled " Frivolous Cupid.'" Mr. Hope says: 'I have never written any story or any volume of stories under the title of " Frivolous Cupid," and I am in no way responsible for this publication. The stories are very probably written by me. I have not seen the volume. But since I myself exercise a strict censorship with regard to the republication of my earlier essays, I do not desire that in America, where I have received such kind and generous encouragement, I should be held responsible for what may be, in my own judgment, entirely unworthy of republication.'"
