This omnibus containsThe History of Egg Pandervil and Nicky, Son of Egg. Bullett writes in the 1930 edition 'In this volume the two parts of one novel, divided hitherto by the accident of their several publication, appear as a continuous whole: which is to say, as originally planned by their author. It was not the tale of Egg but of Nicky that I sat down to tell...only to discover, after writing a few paragraphs, that of these two Pandervils, father and youngest son, the father, being overscored with the intimate tracery of time, was at the moment the far likelier to engage my passionate interest...So it is that the heart of Egg Pandervil, which...becomes, and remains to the end, the true heart of this novel.'
