About this Item

A copy of this collection of short stories,known inEnglish as 'The Amateur Cracksman', which follows the adventures of the British gentleman thief Arthur J. Raffles. Translated from English to French by Henry Evie. Containing: 'Les Ides de mars', 'Une piece costumee', 'Gentlemen et professionnels', 'Le premier pas', 'Un assassinat', 'A cote de la loi', 'La revanche d'un match', and 'Le present de l'empereur'. The front blank has a pencil inscription reading 'L'Odeon Theatre, Paris, May 1935'. (The Odeon Theatre is one of France's six national theatres). The character Raffles, first created in the 1890s, is often regarded as an inversion of the sleuth Sherlock Holmes, created by Hornung's brother in law Arthur Conan Doyle. Raffles supports his lavish London lifestyle and career as a cricketer by carrying out ingenious burglaries. A master of disguise, he nevertheless relies on his more innocent sidekick Bunny to evade capture. Condition: In a half leather binding. Externally, only light shelfwear. Internally, generally firmly bound, although the first front blank is starting. Browned as usual, with intermittent small spots. Ink names and addresses to front blanks. Overall: VERY GOOD.
