London, Chapman & Hall, 1895. First Edition. First Impression. Paperback. A near fine copy. This isn't overly uncommon in the cased issue, but difficult in the wraps. The wraps edition was issued with flaps with a similar floral design to the cased edition. Uncommon. The first in Chapman's Story Series. Along with the titular story the anthology includes The Murder at Jex Farm by George Ira Brett, The Twinkling of an Eye by Brander Matthews and The Secret of the Treaty by Roy Tellet. The "first legitimate detective anthology" [Queen, p120] [8493, Hyraxia Books].
