Original fine-ribbed blue cloth, lettered in gilt. Corners rubbed, trace of Mudie's Circulating Library label on front board, small hole on lower hinge, inner joint papers lightly cracked (but joints tight), some marks and faint stains on occasional pages, fair. Syrett a friend of Grant Allen and a contributor to The Yellow Book. She wrote children's fiction and (scarcer) adult titles with feminist themes. A Castle of Dreams is one of the latter: it centres on the figure of Bridget O'Shaughnessy, a mysterious, other-worldy figure trapped in a "romantic" castle in Ireland: and the manner in which she is emancipated.
