‘Glasses’ had previously appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, LXXVII (February 1896), 145–73. Its three companions in "Embarrassment" were shepherded into the New York Edition: ‘The Figure in the Carpet’, ‘The Next Time’ and ‘The Way It Came’ (renamed ‘The Friends of the Friends’). ‘Glasses’ was squeezed out, but James saw to its inclusion in Martin Secker’s edition of The Uniform Tales (1915–20), where it appeared in September 1916. He revised it shortly before his death, the only work of his to enjoy such a privilege after the New York Edition.
