About this Item

New York. 1970. Pantheon Books. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 21. 352 pages. November 1970. hardcover. Jacket design by Kenneth Miyamoto. 039441330x. keywords:. inventory # 4294. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The years between 1891, when ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ began to appear in The Strand Magazine, and 1914 were a great period for the writers of detective short stories. These rivals of Sherlock Holmes have remained too long in the shadow of the master, and this marvelous collection brings together some of the best stories of the period written by the best professional mystery writers of the times. For the purpose of the collection, editor Hugh Greene has restricted himself to stories in which the detectives have identifiable, or nearly identifiable, addresses in the London of the day, thus giving some of the closeness and reality which still clings to No. 221b Baker Street. An 1898 map has been included to help the reader follow the action, and the special emphasis on the period sets the reader right in the heart of the sounds and smells of London at the turn of the century. The book contains an Introduction by Hugh Greene, giving the background to the period and a brief discussion of each writer. . Bookseller Inventory # 4294
