The House of Strange Secrets; A Detective Story

New York: E.P. Dutton & Company, 1899. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine / Near Fine. Item #011621

Small 8vo., 262pp. Beautiful First Edition of this classic mystery, published simultaneously with the UK edition. Bound in green cloth with blind-stamped decorations and titles stamped in gilt on front board and spine. Square, tight and clean throughout with the barest touch of wear to spine ends and tips but quite minor. Virtually no interior toning. Hinge paper professionally reattached in spots but hinges completely undamaged. Remarkably well-preserved. Stunning original publisher's unpriced dust-jacket has some toning to edges and spine panel and mild uniform soiling. But still fresh and bright with no creases, tears or chipping and impossible to find in any condition. A simply gorgeous collectable copy of a quite scarce volume with the 19th century dustwrapper. (Hubin, p.27).

Price: $1,750.00
