Publication: Written by James M Manning, 1839, San Patricio, Texas
First edition. Some minor foxing to page fore-edges and to the half-title page, else very good in dust jacket with light professional restoration to the spine ends and flap folds. Two entirely seemingly unrelated murder cases are the basis for this mystery. "Dr. Thorndyke reasoning from certain peculiarities in the stoneware figure of a monkey, finds in it a factor common to the two crimes; and he is thus able to infer that the perpetrator of both is a person not hitherto suspected of either." A nice copy of a difficult title.
