Undated first edition [1918]. Illustrated with photographs. Original red cloth, lettered in black. Board edges lightly sunned, paper faintly tanned, good. Tipped in before title page, a statement from the publisher: "This Novel is based upon Mr Matheson Lang's English adaptation of the French play entitled LE CHEVALIER AU MASQUE by Jean Manoussi and Paul Armont. The illustrations are from photographs of Mr Matheson Lang's production at the Lyric Theatre, London. Supplied by courtesy of Mr Matheson Lang". The story of an apparently foppish aristocrat who is really a heroic fighter against tyranny owes more than a little to Baroness Orcy's Scarlet Pimpernel, although the setting is Napoleonic rather First Republican.
