"Collective Edition of 1883"

"Collective Edition of 1883"
by Henry James

The "Collective" or "Collected Edition of 1883" is the informal name of a 14-volume collection of the works of Henry James to date, published by London: Macmillan & Co. in 1883. It was the first collected edition of James' works. The volumes were published individually, with no indication in the front matter that they formed a collection. The collection therefore has no official title, and the volumes are here treated as individual works.
