The Four Just Men

By Wallace, Edgar




When the Foreign Secretary Sir Philip Ramon receives a threatening, greenish-grey letter signed FOUR JUST MEN, he remains determined to see his Aliens Extradition Bill made law. A device in the members' smokeroom and a sudden magnesium flash that could easily have been nitro-glycerine leave Scotland Yard baffled. Even Fleet Street cannot identify the illusive Manfred, Gonsalez, Pioccart and Thery - FOUR JUST MEN dedicated to punishing by death those whom conventional justice can not touch.

The Four Just Men.

WALLACE, Edgar.

London: Tallis Press,, 1905. Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine and upper board in black. Bookseller's blind stamp to front free endpaper. Cloth very slightly rubbed at the tips, some spotting to endpapers and early leaves and occasional small spots to margins of contents thereafter, as often. A lovely, bright copy in excellent condition with the competition slip intact. First edition, first impression. This famous piece of detective fiction is notable for being an early example of interactive media, as the identity of the murderer was withheld pending the result of the competition between readers to solve the mystery. Cash prizes were on offer totalling the huge sum of £500. By some accounts the mystery was no such thing and the publishers were inundated with correct entries and disappointed customers. A particularly beautiful copy with the mail-in slip intact and still attached to its stub at the back of the book.

Folding frontispiece and a numbered "Solution Competition" entry leaf at the end. 224 pp. 8vo., yellow cloth, printed in black to spine and upper board. Frontispiece is quite creased, having a closed tear at the center, and offset from a paper clip at the top-edge. Text leaves are lightly age-browned, with moderate foxing to half-title and title-page, and along the fore-edge of the bookblock. Hinges are starting.
