I have not seen this edition. My copy is a 1922 2nd printing that kept me up until 1:35 in the morning and as soon as I woke up (after feeding the cat), I started on the sequel, ROBIN.
The book covers the late 19th century through the summer of 1914. The Head of the House of Coombe is considered a very, very wicked man. He has never married. He supports Feather, a selfish, frivolous widow with the face and eyes of an angel. Feather is Robin's mother, but not much of one. Poor little Robin is six years old before she even knows what mothers are, let alone that she has one. It is Lord Coombe who changes Robin's loveless and cheerless existence even as his relationship with her mother inadvertently ends her first friendship. Is she secretly his daughter, as some gossips would have it? Much later in the book, as years pass, we find out why Lord Coombe supports Feather and does so much for Robin, who hates him because of the loss of Donal, her friend. We also meet an elderly Duchess, who is the Head's old friend and very intelligent woman. There's a evil German agent who has evil designs on the beautiful and intelligent, but naive, teen that Robin has become. Robin meets her Donal again at her very first party. He is a handsome young man. Will their friendship resume where it left off? By the way, during the party a girl named Kathryn casually tells Robin that "...somebody important has been assassinated in the Balkan countries." If you know your history, you know what that means. If this reprint doesn't include ROBIN, then buy or borrow a used copy.
