First U. S. edition. Limited to 500 copies. Introduction by Tom & Enid Schantz. Fine in pictorial wrappers. This story was originally published in England in 1888, and is Queen Quorum 13 selection. It is an old-fashioned tale of theft and attempted murder, with richly Victorian characters caught in the fell clutch of melodramatic circumstance. A story of historical significance, with a fine literary style and original plot, that is definitely rare in the original first edition.
