Original green cloth with illustration in black on front board, dark green endpapers. Edges scuffed, small octagonal red label ("Day's Library") on front board, faint trace of removed labels on front endpapers, foxing spots, otherwise good. 14 Indian "tall" stories, all but one reprinted from the Madras Mail. Several are crime stories. Published anonymously, but various sources suggest that the author was a Lieut. Col. Dempster Heming. The author produced a second collection of stories -- A Black Prince -- in 1893.
