Abstract This text is a critical, unmodernised edition by Belinda McKay of 'The Red Snake' by Francis Adams. There are two published versions of 'The Red Snake' by Francis Adams. The first appeared in The Christmas Boomerang, 24 December 1888:17-18; the second in Francis Adams, Australian Life, London: Chapman and Hall Ltd, 1892, pp 3-24. The present edition is based on the Christmas Boomerang version. Revisions made by Adams for Australian Life have been incorporated where they correct errors or improve the literary qualities of the work, but not where their purpose is merely to remove Queensland references for an English audience. The accidentals (spelling and punctuation) of the first edition have been adopted here. The edition includes textual apparatus and textual notes.
