A short murder mystery novel, with settings in Philadelphia, Newport (Rhode Island) and the island of Madeira, whose importance as a center of lace manufacture figures in the plot. An extended dream sequence in chapter six gives the book some relevance to the fantastic genre. Of interest to Sherlockians, perhaps, will be the protagonist's affectionate reference to A STUDY IN SCARLET (on pages 185-186). Hubin (1994), p. 70. Wright (III) 517. Front free endpaper missing, a bit of wear to cloth along fore and bottom edges, internally sound and clean, a very good copy of an uncommon book. (#146488). N° de réf. du libraire 146488
