WARDEN, Florence. The Disappearance of Nigel Blair.
WARDEN, Florence [Florence Alice Price James]. The Disappearance of Nigel Blair.
London : Ward Lock & Co., Limited, 1911.
Octavo. First edition. Publisher’s dark green cloth boards, geometric pattern stamped across both boards and spine, title in gilt to front and spine. Spine ends a little bumped as are board corners, however still remarkably handsome condition. Full colour frontispiece inlaid. Endpapers are toned, light spotting throughout, however still bright and clean. An very good copy indeed. A rather pleasing mystery, involving a young man with a habit of going missing for extended periods of time with no explanation, and the obligatory mysterious stranger. One of upwards of 100 works penned by Mrs. Florence James, smart, prolific and light on her feet with a plot, now I’d probably have to walk 5 miles through the centre of London asking everybody until I found someone who’d heard of her.
