"Four hundred and fifty copies of this book printed on Van Gelder hand-made paper and the type distributed in the month of January MDCCCCXVII" -- colophon. Small label on back fixed endpaper: The Norman Remington Co. Baltimore. Contents: Foreword by Don C. Seitz -- "Ten O'Clock" by J.A. McNeill Whistler -- Appendix: Mr. Whistler's Lecture on Art by A.C. Swinburne; "Et tu, Brute!"; Freeing a Last Friend by J.A. McNeill Whistler; Before the Mirror (Verses Written Under a Picture) Inscribed to J.A. Whistler by A.C. Swinburne. With, as found in the book: the illustration "The Two Apprentices" from George Du Maurier's novel Trilby, serialized in Harper's Magazine. The illustration has been removed from the Harper's Magazine and mounted on a piece of brown card, with the name Bonnell at the top of the back, along with an inscription identifying the illustration. Whistler's strenuous objection to the caricature and the character, Joe Sibly (both clearly based on Whistler), resulted in Du Maurier removing both when the novel was published in book form. The former owner was probably John Bonnell of Madison, Wisc., based on other material found with the book. In Very Good+ Condition: lower corners rubbed; small ding in back joint; clean and bright.
