The Death Flash; Or, the Horror of Monkstone Wood
London: The Modern Publishing Company. 1st Edition. Cloth. Near Fine/Fine / Near Fine. Item #013476
12mo., 254pp. Beautiful First Edition, undated but c. early 1930's, Bound in red cloth with titles in black on spine. Publisher's slogan in black on rear board. Advertisements on paste-downs. Square, tight and clean throughout with just a touch of wear at the spine ends but quite minor. Little if any toning and no foxing. Remarkably well-preserved for such delicately, and cheaply, made books that are notorious for the poor condition they are typically found in. Very attractive original unclipped, though unpriced, dustjacket, (2/- on spine panel), has mild soiling to rear panel and spine and some light edge-wear. Still fresh and bright with no creases or tears and quite scarce in any condition. A sharp collectable copy and quite uncommon. (Hubin, p.348).
