SEVERY, MELVIN L. - The Darrow Enigma.
New York, Dodd Mead 1904. Octavo, very good in publisher's black cloth blocked in blind and red with a small onlay (a touch rubbed); illustrations by C.D. Williams. ¶ First edition; a laboured locked room mystery. I came across a relatively recent defence mounted by Severy's great grand-daughter against ridicule of Severy's science and his unlikely invention of a lawyer-chemist hero. First she pointed out that Severy was a successful inventor whose science was sound; then that she was herself a lawyer-chemist.AUD 100.00 [Appr.: EURO 70.75 US$ 76.42 | £UK 61.75 | JP¥ 8493] Book number 7970
