THE NOVELS AND STORIES OF
HENRY JAMES

New and Complete Edition. In 35 Volumes.

Issued in two styles. Crown 8vo. 7s. 6d. net per volume.

Pocket Edition. Fcap. 8vo. 7s. 6d. net per volume.

The text used in this issue is that of the "New York" edition, and the critical prefaces written for that series are retained in the volumes to which they refer. While, however, many stories were omitted from the "New York" edition, either because they did not satisfy their author's later taste, or because he could not find room for them in the limited space at his disposal, the present edition contains all the fiction that he published in book-form during his life. The only writings which have been excluded are a small number of very early pieces, contributed to magazines and never reprinted, and the plays.
