The Shadows of Life A Series of True Detective Stories (1894)

By: Meyer, Charles

Price: £40.00

Publisher: London, Frederick Warne & Co.: 1894

Edition: 1st Edition

Seller ID: 89005

Condition: Fair


First Edition (?). Undated (1894?), yellowback edition. Original pictorial paper-covered boards. Boards rubbed with some light wrinkles/creases; top layer of paper on spine mostly missing (only a small part of title is visible) although lower white paper layer of spine remains intact, inner joint papers cracked (but joints tight), thus only fair. Topp [IV, p. 234] records the existence of the book, but adds "I cannot trace it". Listed in Hubin. It is unclear how "true" the stories are: they read like fiction. Only a fair, well-used copy of rather a scarce title. View more info
