Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood, 1915.
Hardcover. First edition. General rubbing, hint of dampstaining to the rear board (not affecting the text), and light foxing to the pastedowns else near fine, lacking the rare dustwrapper (no jacketed copies have appeared at auction in the last quarter century). The first book featuring adventurer Richard Hannay, and a *Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone*. Basis for Alfred Hitchcock’s early masterpiece with Robert Donat and Madeleine Carol, easily one of the best mystery films ever made.
