Shameless Wayne. A Romance of the last Feud of Wayne and Ratcliffe.

Description:
(vi), 362. Original cloth, faded and rubbed, one leaf with corner torn off but still present, with the signature of FRANCIS DARWIN 1900 at the head of the front free end-paper PLUS the inscription in another hand, presumably that of the recipient - 'The Rev. A. W. Darwin, M.A. from his father Francis Darwin. January 28.1909.'

*The Francis Darwin in this instance is not the botanist son of Charles Darwin but FRANCIS RHODES, later DARWIN (1825-1920). He had married Charles's distant cousin, CHARLOTTE MARIA COOPER DARWIN (1827-1885), and had changed his name to Darwin after marriage. ARTHUR WILLIAM DARWIN, b.1864, was his 5th. son.
