Printing Details

Second edition, hardback, bound in the original green cloth with faint gilt titling printed to upper board and spine. 19.5 × 13cm, viii + 342pp [2pp ads].

A collection of 29 short stories from Francis Charles Philips (1849–1921), an author known for his full-bodied Victorian melodrama and who specialised in lurid death scenes and passionate murder. This is a scarce collection to find in original or early state, and contains such stories as 'The Worst Woman in London', 'A Man Shouldn't Marry a Murderess', and 'The Minx'.


This copy is quite rough, with bumping to the corners and a few spots of fraying to the joints. The gilt titling to the spine and upper boards are fading. The pastedowns, endpapers and prelims are a little untidy and spotted, and the rear hinge is open (but securely bound). The innder binding is a trifle delicate but still firm, the pages tanned but in generally good order.
