Item description

THE FEATHERED SERPENT(Unknown Binding) by Edgar Wallace Book Description: McKinlay, Stone Mackenzie, New York, 1927,1928. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good (See Description). No Jacket. 8vo. Bound in MAROON cloth; pp. 315. This is the "Scotland Yard Edition." Boards a bit bumped, scuffed. End papers are yellowed but text is unmarked and clean. Title page is tearing from the bottom along the crease. Black and white plate of woman opposite the title page: "Her trembling fingers drew forth the Card of the Feathered Serpent." There is a break in the binding after the end paper in the front. Contents clean tight; good overall (no dust jacket). 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-SOLD; CAPTAINS OF SOULS; THE CLEVER ONE; THE CLUE OF THE NEW PIN; THE CRIMSON CIRCLE; THE DAFFODIL MURDER; DIANA OF KARA-KARA-SOLD; THE DEVIL MAN; THE DOUBLE; THE FEATHERED SERPENT; THE FLYING SQUAD; THE FOUR JUST MEN; THE FOURTH PLAGUE; THE GIRL FROM SCOTLAND YARD-SOLD; THE GREEN RIBBON; GUNMAN’S BLUFF-SOLD; THE HAND OF POWER; THE LAW OF THE THREE JUST MEN; RED ACES; THE RINGER; THE RINGER RETURNS; THE SQUEALER; THE TERRIBLE PEOPLE; THE TRAITOR’S GATE; THE TWISTER; THE WHITE FACE. Approx. dimensions are 19 x 13 cms (7.5" x 5") and with 315 pages. The book's condition, in my opinion, is good, with mostly sound covers and tight binding. The text is reasonably clean. A very readable and economical early or first edition. Original Cloth. Good/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. Hardcover MAROON cloth-covered boards with GOLD GILT letters. Embossed bat, moon and three stars on front cover; tight and clean inside. NOT AN EX.-LIBRARY OR REMAINDER BOOK
