New Edition, Piccadilly Novels. Undated on title page but with publisher's catalogue for 1882. Frontispiece and vignette title. Original red cloth blocked in black, gilt lettering on spine; purple-and-white flower-patterned endpapers. Corners a little rubbed, spine faintly sunned, light splash marks on lower corner of rear board, otherwise good. Reade's breakthrough success: a sprawling melodrama encompassing evil machinations in Berkshire, wild adventures in the goldfields of Australia and the disturbing cruelty and horror of life in B-- Gaol.
