Notes: Wilder's first book, which the London Observer described as, "the best-written thing of its kind for many years (Nov. 28, 1926). The Brooklyn Eagle, on the other hand, wrote, "The Cabala is luxurious in its unimportance, its indifference, and its astonishing charm."

This second issue jacket was redesigned to match the jacket of The Bridge of San Luis Rey, which is promoted on the front flap of this copy.
