Publication: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1914, Boston and New York
First edition. 8vo. Original yellow cloth lightly soiled and spine panel a bit darkened, else a near fine, internally clean, square copy without a dust jacket. Illustrated by Elizabeth Shippen Green. Eleven short stories, six of which feature Inspector M. Joly. Queen's Quorum 57 says "Six short stories about the unassuming and philosophical Inspector Joly are included in ...... The style is suave and mellow, a welcome relief in these days of terse and jolting prose." This book is Queen's Quorum 57 and an elusive title.
