Notes

First edition, first impression. The first book in Bramah's series of stories with Max Carrados, "a detective of a totally new and unexpected type, for he is blind; but the alluring peculiarity of his case is that his blindness is more than counterbalanced by an enormously enhanced perception of the other senses" (from the dust jacket). A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone, rare in the jacket.

Octavo. Titles and foliate decoration gilt to spine and front board. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery.

Condition

Bookplate of Charles Boddy Fisher. A superb copy, only faintly spotted at the edges, in the somewhat dust-soiled jacket, rubbed and a little creased, with chips to ends and corners, and a split running half way up the front joint.
