About this Item

Nice, clean, solid book with handsome pictorial cover. Spine has faded a bit with a small loss of color publisher's name almost illegible at the bottom. Otherwise quite good. Minor wear to boards, but nothing egrigious and book is tightly bound with no crackign to hinges. Contains 32 black and white plates. Book was serialized in the Strand Magazine in 1897 and published in book form in 1898. Story focuses on a group of holiday-makers on a boat to Egypt sailing up the River Nile when they wind up abducted by a band of Dervish warriors. As one might expect, British imperialism is held in high regard and Islam is considered highly suspicious, but as always Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's writing is compelling. Bookseller Inventory # 25176

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
