London, David and Charles, 1980. Fine in near fine dust jacket with slight wrinkling to DJ extremities. 'It is obvious that current fiction is suffering from a revival...tales of mystery and murder are beginning to captivate once more.' That wasn't written today, or even recently, but in 1885! The Victorians enjoyed what they called 'sensation novels,' and this book reveals a distinct similarity between then and now. $25.00.
