HUME, FERGUS. - A Knight of the Road. A Romance.
in the 1894 Christmas Number of Household Words. Quarto publisher's printed wrapper; pp5-35 (of 64pp including adverts). ¶ Probably the only printing of this tale (no other has been traced) - a thriller of almost 50,000 words involving a 'modern Dick Turpin'; with an amateur gentleman detective, a somewhat slow police officer and a twist at the end. I think this was turned into the novel 'Claude Duval of Ninety-Five' (1897) which would account for its disappearance from the Hume canon.AUD 175.00 [Appr.: EURO 123.75 US$ 133.74 | £UK 108 | JP¥ 14863] Book number 7952
