THE INNOCENCE OF FATHER BROWN .
Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-335 , eight inserted plates with illustrations by Sydney Seymour Lucas, original red cloth, front panel stamped in gold and blind, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. Cornerstone collection of modern detective fiction that introduced the still-popular adventures of priest-detective Father Brown. The twelve stories "offer a nice feeling of life in Edwardian England, and if Father Brown lacks the colorful eccentricities of Sherlock Holmes, if his solutions are often more intuition than deduction, this book is still a masterpiece, the single volume by which G. K. Chesterton is most likely to be remembered." - Edward D. Hoch in Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, p. 133. "An important book: one of the finest volumes of detective short stories ever written." - Queen, The Detective Short Story, p. 21. Barzun and Taylor, A Catalogue of Crime 2405. Hubin (1994), p. 159. Queen's Quorum 47. A very good, bright copy. (#148858). N° de réf. du libraire 148858
