GARDENHIRE, SAMUEL M. - The Long Arm.
New York, Harper 1906. Octavo, excellent in publisher's illustrated blue cloth blocked in black and white (a small surface blemish to the varnish over the white); illustrations. ¶ First edition. Starring the amateur super sleuth Ledroit Conners, who never really took off. Carolyn Wells ('Technique of the Mystery Story'; 1913) helps explain this when she uses Conners as an example of a poor choice of name for a detective. She adds that the title itself is a so obvious that at least four writers used it: Mary Wilkins, E. Phillips Oppenheim, Richard Harding Davis and Gardenhire.AUD 175.00 [Appr.: EURO 123.75 US$ 133.74 | £UK 108 | JP¥ 14863] Book number 7975
