The Mysterious Bookshop

Thierry, James Francis, The Adventure of the Eleven Cuff-Buttons

Thierry, James Francis, The Adventure of the Eleven Cuff-Buttons, N.Y., Neale, 1918. First edition of this very rare early parody. The gold lettering on the spine has faded, binding just starting to separate at verso of half-title page, showing a bit of webbing . Otherwise a beauty!  A case for 'Hemlock' Holmes and mentioning many canonical elements including 'LeStrayed,' cocaine, and various historical figures of the time.


We are devoted to all things mysterious, from hard-boiled hardcovers to pulpy paperbacks, suspected signings and whispers around town.

Located at 58 Warren St in New York City, we are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-7pm. 212.587.1011
