Despite having published several of his earlier works, and continuing to do so after this edition, Newnes did not end up with the right for first publication for this collection. However, they appeared to have followed the true first by Ransome relatively closely with this imitation (though undated) edition.

Wallace, Edgar. The Little Green Man.

  • George Newnes Ltd., London. [undated]    

    Early Newnes edition, undated, after the first by C. A. Ransom & Company, 1929. Publisher's illustrated wraps imitate the style of the first, with a woman in contemporary dress standing, and a seated mustachioed man. Wear to all edges though text remains intact albeit toned throughout with some foxing. Contents as follows: The Little Green Man; Code No. 2; The Stretelli Case; The Man Who Never Lost; Christmas Eve at the China Dog; Chubb of the Slipper; The King's Brahm; The Man Who Killed Himself.
