The Mystery of Edward Drood with a New Solution

£45.00

Product description

Pages 261-284 comprise "A New Solution by Mary Kavanagh." Originally Published in Mar 1922 at 1/6 as No. 3 in "The Abbey Library". This edition is on thicker paper with red covers decorated in black. The pictorial DW depicts an old woman leaning over a man in bed and lists 1-8 of the "The Abbey Library" at 2/- net on rear cover. The list differs from that in the first edition and Edwin Drood is now listed as No. 5. Clean tight copy with slight edge browning. Sunday School presentation plate on front endpaper. This edition published in London by Chapman and Dodd.
Slight shelf-wear, corners bumped. Dust jacket worn and a little torn on the edges, with a minor surface scratch but otherwise in very good condition. Small, elegant inscription to the front end papers dated 1927. Front end papers bear decorative illustrations.

From the front end papers:
"Edwin Drood is the cleverest detective story ever written. Study the clue that Dickens hid in his fascinating story and then try to work out the conclusion yourself.
What became of Edwin? Was he killed? If so, how? And who killed him? Jasper or Neville?
Or did he survive? What did Datchery the detective, discover?
In this edition of Dickens' mystery masterpiece, the solution is given. When you have thought out the clues yourself at the point where Dickens laid down his pen, read on, and the mystery will be cleared up in an ingenious and satisfying explanation."
