The Hawkmoor Mystery. W. H. LANE CHAUFORD.

The Hawkmoor Mystery

London: Ward Lock and Co. 1932. FIRST EDITION. Crown octavo, pp.256. Publisher's cloth in dust-wrapper [correctly priced at 3/6] with striking period artwork of skulls and a giant moth. Some trivial wear, a few minor nicks and tears but essentially a clean, bright and attractive book. A curious, dastardly tale, summised in the publisher's blurb as follows; "A diamond of incalculable value is stolen from an Indian Temple by Captain Berrington. Then, some twenty years afterwards, in an English country house, there are strange and bewildering happenings" (possibly the sound of Mr. Wilkie Collins instructing his copyright laywers from beyond the grave). Item #41119
