Katherine and Hesketh Prichard (1851–1935; 1876–1922), a mother and son team who also wrote as E and F Heron, produced two volumes of "Don Q" stories plus a "Don Q" novel. This is the second volume of short stories.
This American edition had a comewhat curious method of dealing with the dozen short stories. It showed the 12 stories in the Contents page, but the stories were broken up into 3 or 4 numbered chapters each within the text, up to Chapter 26, as though it were a novel. I have restored the text to 12 stories to match the Contents page.

Don Q is a bandit of aristocratic birth, hiding out in the rugged Sierras of Andalusia with his band, holding unsuspecting wayfarers to ransom, righting wrongs, and ruthlessly administering justice where needed.
