Description

In the title page for Ward, Lock and CO.'s 1885 edition of the novel, the title is printed in the top quarter of the page followed by a period. The author's pseudonym Elizabeth Wetherell is printed in the page's middle. Below the pseudonym is a line attesting to the printing as a complete edition. An inscription taken from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, "To a Child," appears in the page's center. In addition to the inscription is an image of a paper revealing the publisher's initials draped across a stack of books. Ward, Lock and CO.'s address is listed as "London, Warwick House, Dorset Buildings, Salisbury Square, E.C."
