HILL, HEADON. - The Embassy Case.

London, Ward Lock 1915. Octavo publisher's decorated cloth blocked in blind, red and gilt; frontispiece. A used but decent copy. This came from Otto Penzler's collection, he usually kept the best copy he could find and sold any lesser copies. ¶ First edition. A common enough story: a young well bred woman slaving in demeaning circumstances to help her ne-er-do-well brother running up gambling debts in India is accosted by a sinister prince of Balkannia who hires her to impersonate an as yet unidentified lady from his country. That brings us to the end of a brief chapter one. My guess is the king's daughter. From here on it gets complicated.
