Notes of a Son and Brother (1914), the second volume of Henry James’s autobiographical writings, was published a year after the first, A Small Boy and Others (1913). The third, the unfinished The Middle Years (1917), was posthumously published. They were edited by Frederick W. Dupee and published under the title Henry James: Autobiography in 1956. Notes of a Son and Brother picks up the mazy chronological web from A Small Boy and Others, which concluded, rather confusingly (having in the penultimate pages dwelt on his convalescence), with James’ physical collapse at the onset of typhus in Boulogne in 1857 when he was fourteen.
