The Solange Stories.

by F. Tennyson. Jesse

Publication: Privately printed, nd (circa 1928), NP

First U. S. edition. 8vo. Original yellow cloth, titles stamped in black on the front cover and spine, xvi [2], 182 pp., foreword. a very good copy in the elusive dust jacket that has been professionally restored at the spine ends and extremities and red color on spine faded. Collects five (the U. K. edition contains six) excellent psychic detective tales featuring Solange Fontaine, a woman detective "gifted by nature with an extra spiritual sense that warned her of evil." Queen's Quorum 83 says, "... the author reminds us that 'the fun of anything consists in its limitations .... the framework of rules saying what we can't do.' Then, to extend the old concepts of formula, Miss Jesse created a woman detective, Solange Fontaine, 'gifted by nature with an extra spiritual sense that warned her of evil."
