32pp., 8vo. In original printed wraps. Stitched. In fair condition: dusty and lightly-aged, with minor creasing. Described on p.5 as 'a new translation of the Memorandum presented to the protecting Powers by the Executive which, since the departure of the second Greek High Commissioner, has been governing Crete under obvious difficulties, but with conspicuous success'. The 'Copy of Letter from Monsieur E. Venizelos to Sir Charles W. Dilke', dated 'Canea. 13/26 July, 1910', is on p.3; and Dilke's introduction on pp.5-12. There is also a 'covering note' preceding the memorandum, and a 'historical retrospect' by 'W. N. E.' after it. Excessively scarce: no copies on COPAC or WorldCat, and the only copy traced in the Firestone Library, Princeton University.
