Max Carrados.London: Methuen & Co. Ltd, 1914 Stock Code: 120453
Presentation copyFirst edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "Josephine Mary Cockill with love from Ernest and Mattie Aug. 15, 1918". (A number of records note Bramah marrying a Lucy Maisie Barker in 1897, although other sources have her listed under the name Mattie, as here.) Inscribed copies of Bramah's works are rare due to his famously reclusive nature. This is the first of five books in the Max Carrados series, detailing the adventures of a blind detective.
Octavo. Original red cloth, lettered in gilt to spine and in blind to front cover.
Spine slightly rolled and lightly faded, spine ends slightly bumped, very light marking to covers. An excellent copy.
