London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1922. FIRST EDITION. Octavo. Publisher's original red cloth boards with black embossing, with the colour-illustrated dust-jacket. Fine but for the faintest traces of wear to outer corners. Original dust-jacket has closed tears, some creasing and soiling. Small piece missing to spine top with larger loss to top edge of rear, but not affecting image. A very good copy. Paris, 1794, and still Robespierre's reign of terror is wreaking its bloody havoc, but the elusive Scarlet Pimpernel is still at large. Item #23014
