CARLING, JOHN R.
The Weird Picture
London,, Ward Lock & Co Limited, 1905. 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. 308, ads.8vo,,Bound in original black cloth blocked in blind, red and gilt,The front board is 'weirdly' decorated by a border of stamped squares, alternately in blind and red, with the title and author's name stamped in gilt and the top. The binding appears to be designed by the Boston book designer, Amy Sacker (1872-1965). This is the first British edition. This title was also published in the U.S. in the same year, by Little, Brown, and apparently wih the same binding (although the Ward, Lock edition was printed in England). Carling, a now long-forgotten writer of historical romances and mysteries, is the author of about seven other books. Hubin lists three, including this title, as mysteries. The boards are bumped and show some rubbing to the extremities, especially at the board tips, which are also bumped. There is a bit of soiling to the rear board. The front free endpaper has been removed, and the front hinge is now tender. The binding is a bit dry. Overall, still in good condition. No dust jacket. Ill.: Cyrus Cuneo illustrations.
