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

(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.
