The Revels of Orsera: A Query

In 1920, Ronald Ross published a novel he'd written twenty-five years earlier entitled The Revels of Orsera: A Mediæval Romance.  It came out from John Murray, with an American edition (pictured at right) published by E.P. Dutton.  In 1930 there was a reprint of the Murray edition, which has an new preface by the author printed on the verso of the half-title (I gather, on page [ii]).  The new edition did not appear in the U.S., and the Wildside Press reprint of 2008 does not include the preface.  Does anyone out there have this edition who might scan the one page preface for me?  Thanks for checking!
