This novel is attributed to George Grassal (Hugues Rebell) originally written in French, in 1902, as “La Femme et son maître” (The Woman and her Master). In 1904 “Woman and her Master” was published in English by Charles Carrington. Often these editions were printed unbound and sent to the bookseller to bind to the specifications of their customers. “this book is a witness to the horrors that the power of England has in some degree blotted out by the erection of Schools at Khartoum and Omdurman.”
