"This is the story of 'The Light that Failed' as it was originally conceived by the Writer."--Author signed preface.
"This edition, the first English trade edition, contains fifteen chapters and the "sad ending". The primary diference between this and the first (14-chapter, American) enlarged edition is the insertion in this version (as chapter VIII, with a four-line verse chapter heading from H.W. Longfellow's 'Hiawatha') of a description of war correspondents and artists in Torpenhow's rooms in London"--Cf. Richards.
"This edition also contains, as the 'Dedication', the first appearance of the poem 'Mother o' Mine,' which Kipling later collected in 'Songs from books' (1912)."--Cf. Richards.
Blue cloth edition with publisher's advertisements dated February, 1891 (55 p.) at end.
