(A 'pirated' American edition of stories written for the journal London Society in Doyle's early days; the publisher, Hogg, represented himself as owning copyright on the stories and sold them to the U.S. publisher without Doyle's knowledge, after Doyle had become famous. Doyle was furious that his juvenilia had been released without his consent, but he had no recourse. The stories are the same as those contained in Mysteries and Adventures, published in the UK, with four additional ones.)
