Dorrington, Albert - The Radium Terrors

Garden City, Doubleday Page, 1912. First edition. A Japanese villain plots to steal some radioactive radium to further his nefarious plot. Once thought to have curative powers, this early precursor to the Fu Manchu stories capitalizes on the popularity of radium before less toxic radioactive isotopes came into general use. Light wear to extremities, spine slightly cocked. Binding a bit loose in spots. Previous owner's note to front endpaper.  $45.00.
