First edition. 8vo. Acknowledgements. Foreword. Introduction. Bibliography. Fine in fine dust jacket. Philip Schuylar Warne was the first known person of African American descent to publish a mystery in the United States. The works of Howard W. Macy predate Warne's. Here, Warne and Macy demonstrate their skills in the two mystery novellas featured. Published before detective fiction became a widely recognized genre, Warne's Who Was Guilty? (1881) and Macy's The Mystery of Sea-Eagle Tavern (1872) will keep readers guessing until the end. This is the 17th volume in the Crippen & Landru Lost Classic Series of short story volumes by authors of the past.
