London, Thornton Butterworth, 1923. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback (remainder binding). A near fine copy. Detective novel, an early example of the crazed killer trope. A rare book. The jacket is a later issue and bears Eyre & Spottiswoode's imprint. E&S bought the majority of Butterworths' stock in 1941 after Butterworth suffered in 1940 during the blitz. The fact that the jacket shows E&S and the 15 Bedford St address (which had belonged to Butterworth) identifies the jacket as having been printed by E&S after their acquisition of the Butterworth stock and premises in 1941, a fact substantiated by the list of 1930s titles on the rear. Assumption is that the sheets were bound earlier though given the Butterworth imprint. A nice example though, and a striking jacket in its own right. Uncommonly good copy. Spine and rear plate toned, corners a touch chipped, a few short 1mm-2mm tear to the top edge, one longer 10mm tear to the corner. Book foxed to the edges, boards bright and binding tight. Publisher's reprice sticker on front flap. No copies on the market, or at auction. COPAC reports five copies. [7804, Hyraxia Books].
