Description :

Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1] 2-149 [150: blank], original pictorial brown cloth, front panel stamped in red and black, spine panel stamped in black. First edition. A presentation copy inscribed by Le Queux about a week after publication on the verso of the front free endpaper: "To / Mrs. Raven / With the kind regards of / The Author / Oct 1st 1892." Le Queux's first collection of short stories, twelve tales of political turmoil in Russia featuring anarchists and revolutionaries, to whom Le Queux is clearly sympathetic. In addition to his formal career as a journalist Le Queux "claimed to have been employed as a secret agent, and to have been involved in vital espionage work for anything up to thirty years before the Great War. Whatever his exploits in real life, he was certainly the great pioneer of spy fiction, from the publication of his novel GUILTY BONDS (1890) onwards. In his thrillers he turned away from the description of imaginary future conflicts on a large scale to the description of action behind the scenes in the contemporary world, where German plots were forever being thwarted by British agents, who thus prevented the enemy from achieving advantages that would make actual hostilities profitable." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 110. Le Queux's type of spy story will probably strike most modern readers as hollow and impossible, now that the genre has had a century to mature, but he was one of its pioneers. John Atkins, in his study, The British Spy Novel, excoriates him ("Oppenheim and Le Queux are jokes. It is fashionable to sneer at them. but no sneer will eradicate them." p. 19) but gives the devil his due, admitting him to be "extremely prolific and probably the most influential of the cloak-and-dagger school" (p. 49). Queen, The Detective Short Story, p. 66 (citing the later 1896 edition). Topp II, p. 345. Cloth dust soiled, damp stains to fore-edge corners, cracks along inner hinges, but binding still tight, a good copy. A very scarce book. (#152449). N° de réf. du libraire

Description du livre Ward, Lock & Bowden, London, 1896. Decorated cloth. État : Fair. No Jacket. 320 pages plus a frontispiece illustration. The binding is somewhat shaken leaving the last gathering a little loose - no danger of serious failure. The gilt lettering on the spine is bright but the red and black decoration is rather darkened. There is a 1" closed tear to the margin of the title page. Can this be a reprint, with an expanded title, of this prolific author's first novel of 1892? Size: 5" x 7½" (130mm x 190mm).
