New York City: Grosset & Dunlap, 1925. Photoplay Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Near Fine / Very Good. Item #005920
8vo., 408pp. c. 1925. Sharp First Photoplay Edition with stills from the 1925 Paramount film release, one of several adaptations to come from this early quasi-bibliomystery and written well before the the author's creation of Charlie Chan. Solid and clean throughout with some minor wear to spine ends and edges. Better than a Very Good if not quite Near Fine. Very clean pages. Equally attractive unclipped, though unpriced, dust jacket has some wear to edges and a bit of chipping at the spine ends. Uniformly toned. A few pieced of tape reinforcement on the verso though invisible from the front and quite unobtrusive. Still a fresh and bright example and quite uncommon in any condition. A very pretty copy of one of the scarcer reprints of this title.
