We already have Georgette Heyer’s first novel “The Black Moth”. There is another book of hers which sounds interesting, first published in 1923.

It was originally titled “The Transformation of Philip Jettan” when published by Mills and Boon in 1923. In 1930, the book was republished by William Heinemann minus the original last chapter as Powder and Patch.

Also, it was originally published under a pseudonym: Stella Martin.

If we can find this text I’d love to BC it for our catalogue!

Archive has a copy stating first published in 1923 and listing many of her books so that won't do :D

There are one or two of her novels not yet in the catalog. One can be found here: https://archive.org/details/greatroxhythe00heye/page/n7

I wasn’t sure about this? It says published in 1923, but it has the new title from 1930...

Yes, it's a strange situation, but easy enough to understand, I suppose, in terms of PD. The original is PD but we would have to find that very 1923 copy in order to use it for LV.

EDIT: I read 'first published.'

I searched a bit using 'Stella Martin' but that didn't help (for me, at least.)

It's on HathiTrust, but for me it's Limited View (Search Only): https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/102035416/Home

Would someone in the States see if it's Full View for you? HT does geolocation blocking, and since this is only PD in the US (author died in 1974), it is probably blocked for all of us outside the US.

(Yes, this is a newer edition, but we trust HT as much as we trust PG to determine PD-US status. If it's Full View in the US, it's PD in the US.)

Same for me, and I'm just below your border.

The Great Roxhythe has a PGDP project created.

https://www.pgdp.net/c/project.php?id=projectID5d19cef387624

I have no idea when it will actually make it through to PG.

Amazon has a Dover copy of The Transformation of Philip Jettan for less than $10 new. I've not checked abebooks for a used copy. The Dover copies of PD books are usually clearable with PG. If someone wants to send me a Dover copy I'll try to clear it and scan it if it clears. Abebooks probably has some original 1923 copies as well.

There is a version of The Transformation of Philip Jettan at PGDP now. It has a PG copyright clearance.

https://www.pgdp.net/c/project.php?id=projectID5d6d63a3e9f22

It should move through fairly quickly and get posted to PG. I'll add the PG link when it posts.

This makes me so happy! It's a sweet and silly book, and I had no idea there was an extra chapter!

This is in smooth reading at PGDP if anyone is interested.
