Rodney Stone

£19.99

Product description

As well as penning some of the most popular detective fiction, Conan Doyle also wrote thrilling adventure stories. ‘Rodney Stone’ is a combination of both. Nelson, Beau Brummell, Fox and King George III himself appear in a tale at the heart of which is, as one character says, “a pretty conspiracy - a criminal, an actress and a prize-fighter, all playing their parts”.

Pocket edition by John Murray, bound in red cloth with gilt lettering to spine and gilt monogram on front cover.
The binding is in very good condition, with only a few nibbles on the leading edge and slight foxing to text block edges.
Pencil inscription inside front board, neat and dated Xmas 1948. False title page torn along spine edge from bottom upwards, for 3 cms and across for a similar distance. Apart from this the book is in very good condition, with tight block, clear text and six pages of advertisements for other available books after the end of the thrilling story.
