CAPTAINS OF SOULS-EDGAR WALLACE,SMALL,MAYNARD,1ST-1922;DETECTIVE MYSTERY THRILLER. CAPTAINS OF SOULS BY EDGAR WALLACE Format: Cloth HARDCOVER Book condition: Very Good Jacket condition: No Jacket Unknown Binding: 362 pages Publisher: Small, Maynard and Co (January 1, 1922) Language: English ASIN: B00086MKU4 New York: Bound in red linen cloth stamped with gilt rules lettering. 1922. hb. Small 8vo, pp. 362 Book Description: Boston: Small, Maynard Company Publishers, 1922. First U.S. edition, first printing. Very good: in RED textured cloth stamped in gilt to front cover and spine; lacking dust jacket. A compelling tale of the supernatural in the tradition of James' 'The Turn of the Screw.'"--W.W. Dixon Another typical Edgar Wallace crime novel. Full of intrigue, thrills and mystery. Totally captivating tale unfolds as the crime happens and is solved. An early edition of this action thriller from the master of 'B-movie' suspense, Edgar Wallace - illegitimate son of an actress; adopted at nine days by a Billingsgate fish-porter; started work on Fleet Street aged eleven (selling newspapers); banned as a war correspondent by Lord Kitchener; writer of over 170 novels; made millions and lost them though gambling; died in , writing the screen-play for 'King Kong'. And the book is good, too! This prolific writer of thrillers is somewhat dismissed today, I think by those who've never bothered to read him. The truth is that he is a decent read, even by today's jaded standards. I think he suffers as a collectible author, because he did not have one series character. Try his stuff. I'LL BE LISTING 28 OF HIS GREAT MYSTERY-THRILLERS! A KING BY NIGHT THE ARRANWAY MYSTERY CAPTAINS OF SOULS THE CLEVER ONE THE CLUE OF THE NEW PIN THE DAFFODIL MURDER DIANA OF KARA-KARA THE DEVIL MAN THE DOUBLE THE FEATHERED SERPENT THE FLYING SQUAD THE FOUR JUST MEN THE FOURTH PLAGUE THE GIRL FROM YARD THE GREEN RIBBON GUNMANโ€™S BLUFF THE HAND OF POWER THE LAW OF THE THREE JUST MEN RED ACES THE RINGER THE RINGER RETURNS THE SQUEALER THE TERRIBLE PEOPLE THE TRAITORโ€™S GATE THE TWISTER THE WHITE FACE Approx. dimensions are 19 x 13 cms (7.5" x 5") and with 362 pages plus publisher's catalogue. The book's condition, in my opinion, is good, with mostly sound covers and tight binding. The text is reasonably clean, Stamped owner's name on front free endpaper. A very readable and economical early or first edition. Original Cloth. Good/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. Hardcover, NEAR FINE, red cloth-covered boards with gold letters, 362 pages, tight and clean inside ยท THIS IS ANOTHER GREAT BOOK TO ADD TO YOUR OLD * RARE MYSTERY SUSPENSE LIBRARY.
