Three volumes uniformly bound in brown leather over grey-brown paper covered boards, lettered in gilt on spines. Spines gummed to text blocks with some consequent creasing. Edges rubbed, boards lightly grazed, front free endpaper of each volume removed, light soiling (finger marks etc) on margins, corner torn from title page in Volume III, fair/good. Wrongly attributed by several libraries to Mrs Henry Wood. The title is listed in Varieties of Women's Sensation Fiction as having a plot centred "on murder and fraud". A solid but workaday binding, with signs of heavy internal use, making this a good reading copy only. A heavy --volume set which will require additional posatge.
