London: John Long, 1935. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine / Very Good. Item #013130
8vo., 287pp. Sharp First Edition of this very scarce adventure from the creator of the gentleman thief, Arsene Lupin. Bound in blue cloth with titles in yellow on spine. Square, tight and clean throughout with little or no wear. Toning to end-papers and scattered foxing; heavier to the prelims then sporadic elsewhere. A very well-preserved example. Beautiful art-deco unclipped, though unpriced, dust jacket, (7/6 net on the spine panel), has some edge-wear and tiny nicks. Rubbing to folds. Yellow lettering on spine panel toning but still just legible. Still bright and complete and impossible to find in any condition. A very pretty collectable copy with no other copies currently available. (Hubin, p.263).
