CLARKE, Marcus. - The Mystery of Major Molineux, and Human Repetends.

Melbourne, Cameron Laing 1881. Octavo modern cloth; title page dusty with a small piece from the bottom corner: without its front wrapper for a while it seems, but rather good once you're past that. Without the slip announcing that half the profits would go to Clarke's widow and children. ¶ First edition and hard to find. Clarke’s last work and just posthumous; R.P. Whitworth’s preface is an obituary. Major Molineux is a Tasmanian psychological suspense thriller which for "intensity of sustained interest and soul—thrilling excitement it is only surpassed by Edgar Allen Poe ..." (preface). Possibly quite true though the conclusion is unsatisfyingly modern in its inconclusiveness. The Human Repetends, an earlier story and set in Melbourne, has similar "weird, physiological, and psychological" interest.
