HUME, FERGUS. - The Jew's House.

 1462377432,
London, Ward Lock 1911. Octavo publisher's black cloth blocked in gilt, red and blind; colour frontispiece. A bit of browning of the edges and at the ends, minor signs of use; quite a good copy. ¶ First edition. How is that so many unpleasant millionaires had delectable daughters? It certainly isn't true today. The delectable girl here is not an unpleasant millionaire's daughter but that doesn't save him from being murdered at the end of chapter one. She is a quaker farm girl - or is she? A convoluted plot with plenty of spectacular admissions and secrets unveiled. The Jew of the House - Ben-Ezra of Tanbuck Hall - is a millionaire but not the murdered one, rather one falsely accused of murder. He is really the hero of the story and still ends up badly.
