[please click on the image or book title for more details]"Martin Ross" April 19, 1913.' The English literary scholar Nevill Coghill was the nephew of Edith Somerville, the co-author of this book. First published by Longmans in 1903.

Edith Somerville [1858-1949] and her writing partner, her cousin Violet Martin ('Martin Ross') [1862-1915] are best known for writing the Irish R.M. stories together. After Violet's death in 1915 Edith, a firm believer in seances and the afterlife, continued to proclaim dual authorship of her books. This collection comprises eleven articles by the pair previously published in magazines, periodicals and anthologies.

A scarce signature, and a close family association.
