HUME, FERGUS. - The Mystery Queen.

London, Ward Lock 1912. Octavo publisher's black cloth blocked in gilt, red and blind (spine blocking a bit rubbed); frontispiece and one other plate. Title and the pages adjacent to the other plate foxed, still a rather good, bright copy. ¶ First edition. How did unappetising millionaires have such delectable daughters? Why is as unimportant as why said millionaire must be murdered by the end of chapter one - two at the latest. Reliable Hume gives us a dead millionaire early, and a secret society of villains from good families ruled by a diabolical queen and a lot more dead bodies by the end of the book.
