First edition, first impression, of the final Hewitt novel. Morrison (1863-1945) is best remembered for A Child of the Jago (1896), based on his experiences growing up in London's East End.
Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, titles and vignette of the protagonist at work blocked to front board in red, white and black.
Bookplate of Florence and Edward Kaye, noted collectors of crime fiction, to the front pastedown. Spine sunned and gently rolled, extremities very lightly bumped and toned, a few pale marks to boards, minor foxing to endpapers. A very good copy, notably bright for a book of this time.
