First edition, first impression, of one of the earliest novels written by author of The Mystery of the Hansom Cab. Scarce.

3 volumes, octavo. Original blue sand-grained cloth, titles to spines gilt and to front boards in orange, with decorative roll blind to front boards, and publisher’s insignia blind to rear board, patterned endpapers. Near-contemporary (1900) ownership inscription. Corners bumped, spines rolled and a little dulled, a few minor marks to covers, tanning to early and late leaves and a few spots to edges. Still a very good set.
