Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-324 [325- 330: publisher ads] [331-334: blank], inserted frontispiece with illustration by H. B. Matthews, original dark green pictorial cloth, front and spine panels stamped in light green. First U.S. edition. "Hume's characteristic mix of criminal mystery, flippant romance and exotic adventure, in this case centered on a missing Peruvian mummy and smuggled emeralds. The story has a whiff of fantastic atmosphere -- how could it not when mummies are involved? -- but it belongs more rightly to the previously mentioned genres. The hero, Archie, a struggling artist with just 300 pounds a year to live on, wants to marry Lucy, whose stepfather, a fanatical Egyptologist collector, is not thrilled by the prospect, but he's keen on getting the Peruvian "green mummy," which gives Archie an opening. After numerous complications (some involving corpses), and revelations about parentage, all turns out well in the end, and the couple get married and wind up with nearly a thousand a year." - Robert Eldridge. Listed in Hubin (as is apparently every other book Hume wrote). Not listed in fantasy genre bibliographies. Contemporary gift inscription on front free endpaper. Light wear at corners of spine ends and some rubbing along outer joints, otherwise a very good copy. (#147283). N° de réf. du libraire 147283
