FINN, EDMUND. - A Priest's Secret. "Under Seal of Confession."

Melbourne, Alex. M'Kinley Printers 1888. Octavo publisher's printed wrapper (rebacked, a chip from a corner); [8],11-103pp - complete despite the apparent gap in numbering; the front paste down is part of the first signature. ¶ Second edition according to the wrapper. I guess it's possible that maybe six editions of this appeared in a year - copies of the first, second, fourth and sixth editions are recorded - sold to an avid public expecting Maria Monk-like salacious scandal. If so, a lot of copies will have been hurled away by disappointed readers. Those who persevered would be relieved to find the "livid, distorted" face of the corpse at the end of chapter four with the wrongly accused standing over it.
