8vo. First edition. Original pictorial blue cloth, gilt. Corner tips pushed and a bit rubbed. Circular mark on front board. Some foxing to prelims. Vertical crease to page 7 and pencil correction (’It’ not ‘Is’) on page 15. Very good +.
The last tale of the cricketer and gentleman thief and the only novel. Despite Raffles being second only in popularity to Sherlock Holmes (written by Hornung’s brother-in-law) when the stories were published, original editions are surprisingly hard to come by.
