Notes

First edition in English, first impression; originally published as L'image de la femme nue (Paris 1934). Decidedly scarce: the publisher's London warehouse was apparently destroyed during the Blitz; Copac locates a single copy (BL) in British and Irish institutional libraries, and OCLC adds only one more (National Library of New Zealand). Leblanc was the creator of the famous crook Arsène Lupin, although the hero of this novel is one Stéphane Bréhange, whose quest for a stolen statue takes him "into the mysterious Camargue region of Southern France".
