by LE QUEUX (William)

Condition: See description

A mystery. By William Le Queux Author of “In White Raiment,” “If Sinners Entice Thee,” “The Room of Secrets,” etc. Ward, Lock & Co., Limited, London, Melbourne and Toronto, 1916. Half-tone frontispiece printed in sepia; pp.319+[i (blank)]; deep blue-green smooth linen, ruled, blocked, and lettered black on front cover, lettered black on spine. Slight wear to extremities of spine; first and last few leaves, end-papers, and edges foxed; back free end-paper damaged by adherence to paste-down (an original binding fault); otherwise a nice copy. A scarce title possibly printed short because of paper shortages during the First World War, but one of Le Queux’s better titles, with an impenetrable mystery, well worked out. Not in Sadleir; this title not in Wolff; Hubin, p.253, giving the title in error as ‘The Place of the Dragons’, and recording no American printing; COPAC lists the British Library, Oxford, Cambridge, National Library of Scotland, and National Library of Wales copies only. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.
